#ParisAttacks: “The language used in the reported claim of responsibility for the 13 November attacks by the so-called ‘Islamic State’, labeling the rock fans at Bataclan as ‘pagans’ and the city of Paris as the ‘capital of prostitution and vice’ demonstrates the hateful worldview motivating this violence,” said UN #humanrights expert on cultural rights Karima Bennoune. http://ow.ly/UKq4A 

For the human rights expert, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is Great) when beginning the Bataclan massacre, as has been reported, “grossly misuses a religious pronouncement sacred to hundreds of millions of Muslim believers around the world who abhor such bloodshed, and increases the likelihood of hate and discrimination against them in response,” she said. #AttaquesParis

Saturnia Thermal Springs, Tuscany, Italy.
Saturnia's thermal baths are made of several springs stretching from Mount Amiata to the hills of Albenga and Fiora and reaching Roselle and Talamone.
The warm sulphurous waters of Saturnia were well-known by the Etruscans and Romans. Legend has it that its springs are born in the exact point where Jupiter's thunderbolt fell in a battle against Saturn. The thermal waters have a temperature of 37.5 °c and therapeutic and relaxing properties.

In the last hours circulating in social media an impressive photo taken on the beach of Paros Marcello and shows an artwork in the sand. It can not be determined who made it, but it is very impressive. There are rumors that the artist is a German tourist, while others argue that the author is Italian, as depicted an ancient building that looks like the Parthenon and a second building which resembles the Coliseum. The photo has thousands of notifications on the Internet, since it is an impressive work. It is not the first time pictures with "castles" in the sand impress. Occasionally they move unique construction of talented artists that build ephemeral palaces.
With a simple search you can find instructions on how to build impressive castles in the sand, although it probably first need talent, which is not taught. According to this: first, to find the appropriate place, which is near the water, but not liable to dissolve it. The space must be defined and "pressed" to be flat. Then you need a large amount of sand will become a shapeless tower and will form the basis of the project. Continue with spatulas or other sharp objects are the details. Important advice is to grasp the sculpture, wet, so as not to dissolve. For this reason it can be used special boukali- sprayer. The instructions are always easy. The implementation though?
