Yonatan Zunger originally shared to Brief Dispatches:
 
A group of researchers has built a way to mine the giant corpora of pictures people have posted publicly (on sites like Picasa and Flickr) and build time-lapse images of landmarks. This involves huge technical challenges of identifying landmarks, building 3D models of them, stabilizing the images, and normalizing the motion and lighting -- and so far, they've managed to find over 20,000 such images, showing everything from changing seasons, to building construction, to moving glaciers.

They've made a video showing off their favorites: https://youtu.be/wptzVm0tngc. You can read the paper at http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/timelapse/ , and hopefully they'll soon have a way to see all their results.

I've always figured that people who say they don't lie are lying to themselves.
On any given day we're lied to from 10 to 200 times, and the clues to detect those lie can be subtle and counter-intuitive. Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting, shows the manners and "hotspots" used by those trained to recognize deception — and she argues honesty is a value worth preserving.

This 2 minute video that shows a snowflake being formed is completely mesmerizing.
