Ballet Dance Pics N Video

Ballet is a standard art form today, known and loved by audiences across the world. But how did this beautiful art get its start? When and how did the concept of ballet form? Read this article for a brief history of the origins of ballet.
Ballet is an elite form of dancing that requires much foot muscle movement, and suspension on the toes. There is no singing done in a typical ballet; dance is performed purely to an orchestral accompaniment. Story and plot are conveyed through a dancer’s actions and facial expressions, along with orchestral coloring.
Early ballets in France were known as “romantic ballets.”
Ballet first appeared in Rome during the Roman Pantomime. Roman Pantomime is a Greek tragedy mainly of speaking and dancing, with emphasis on facial and bodily movements to transmit a plot. Ballet, along with other forms of art, disappeared for a time during the Middle Ages. It returned in the “courtly entertainments,” or lavish plays and dances put on for kings and courts in the early years of the Renaissance. Thinkers of the Renaissance hearkened back to Greek ideals in dancing and singing. Ballet first appeared in Italy, at the urging of the Medici family. A sponsored performance, “Le Ballet Comique de la Reine,” made ballet a common appearance in courts across Europe.

Famous contributors to the ballet world include Stravinsky, with his “Rite of Spring,” Profokiev, with “Romeo and Juliet,” and earlier composers of the courtly entertainment and opera who integrated ballet into scenes and between acts. Ballet today is very different from ballet of the past. It is not uncommon to hear ballet to techno music, see dancers in suits and strange dance attire, and watch a ballet that consists of someone speaking, while a dancer dances to their words.

Magnetic Fields As You’ve Never Seen Them Before pics

Magnetic Fields As You’ve Never Seen Them Before pics
A stunning new film shot at the NASA laboratory at UC Berkeley reveals the secret lives of magnetic fields as they morph and twist in space - but are we observing a scientific experiment, the universe in flux or a documentary of a fictional world?

They surround us, yet they can’t be seen. They shift vast currents through space, yet we rarely feel their presence. Interplanetary magnetic currents are undoubtedly one of the most mysterious aspects of the universe, but a new film by British filmmakers Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhadt unlocks the beauty of these magnificent forces for all to see.
The pair took recordings of magnetic currents from all over the universe and used them to create animated visualisations of geophysical phenomenon. The very same forces that whip up giant electrical storms at the fringes of the earth’s atmosphere, create beautiful electromagnetic light displays over the North Pole and direct cosmic rays on their spiralling courses through the universe, here are visualised in miniature - a breathtaking display of the meeting point between science and art.

Combining their scientific experience with artistic instinct in sound, animation and programming they have created a ‘magnetic magnum opus’ - a ‘tour de force’ of immense invisible force brought down to human scale. And it is precisely the meeting of scale that makes the work so fascinating - to think that these tiny pulsating currents surround our planet on a scale inconceivable to man is not only a humbling thought, but an uplifting one. The inherent beauty of nature is again, in Wordswoth’s words, too much with us.

The animations are set to audio recordings of the earth’s molten core and subtly shifting weather systems - great washes of static caught in the flare of meteorological turbulence, expertly coloured by Jarman and Gerhadt to create an infinite variety of delicate electric geometrics. One is put in mind of Mahler’s remarks on his own symphonies: ‘All nature finds in them a voice and tells a deep secret, like the tinglings of a dream.’

These miniature models of universal forces seem to have a purity, a beauty of form and energy that goes beyond a simple scientific project and for a brief moment becomes a vehicle for the transmission of universal vibrations. And so much the better for it.

66 year old woman in England pregnant

Doctors have announced that a 66 year old woman in England in pregnant.
Elizabeth Adeney will become the oldest woman in Britain to give birth when she delivers next month, after becoming pregnant by IVF.
“It doesn’t interest me that I’m going to be the oldest mum in the country,” she told local media. “I’m amazed that the fact I am having a baby at all is interesting to anyone.”
Experts have unsurprisingly condemned the pregnancy, saying that besides the risks of giving birth at 66, motherhood at this age has serious moral implications.
Adeney will be in her 80’s when her child goes through their teenage years.
