Sad to hear about the mountain. I hope they were able to stop it before it did much more damage.

Safety codes FTW! I'm a fan. :)

(I use to work for Holabird & Root a well known Chgo Architecture firm.. Thats why i included it in the shot.. They designed the Chgo Board of Trade that you see in our financial district, parts of Wrigley Field and many other iconic architecture landmarks.. although we did not design the buildings in this

One pseudo interesting fact about the "Standard Oil Building" (as we locals of a certain age call it), its top floor is actually higher than the John Hancock bldg.. It's the antennae that make the Hancock "taller".
In 1974 when it was constructed, it was the tallest bldg in Chicago & 4th tallest in the world, until the Sears Tower was constructed in 1975. (Sears then became the tallest in the world at the time..) Its structural system is very similar to the former NYC World Trade Center Bldgs.

Personally, I think spires don't count toward height.. ;-)

Some designs are meant for creativity and some aren't meant for function. I still appreciate the design because it's artistic.

From +PBS NewsHour: how one high school football coach convinced her team's players their future is more than football: 

She said, "We tell them you have to be a whole person. You have to be smart. You're not going to be very effective on the football field if you're not smart and you're not good at studying," Read the story at

General Discussion  - 
Not a photograph, but an oil painting..
I'm posting here bc the artist seems to have a great talent for understanding proportion, color, light and reflection... Which is still an issue for photographic composition. And as a frustrated painter, that is quite an accomplishment, imo.
But I'm still in the if u want it to look like a photograph, then use a camera camp. Otherwise, the act of hiding the trails of the paintbrush, seem more craft trickery, than painting.. but I cd be wrong.
Incredible ability tho'...
Take a closer look at this extremely detailed oil painting!

I would never have guessed this was a painting! The light, shadows and reflections are stunning. Interestingly, one of my first reactions is to look for the camera/photographer in the reflection of the black vase, and it feels odd that it isn't there!

Years pass by and our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any unwanted entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo cleaning treatments and how are we going to overcome this?

It is very easy, first take a bunch of parsley or Cilantro ( Coriander Leaves ) and wash it clean
Then cut it in small pieces and put it in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it inside refrigerator to cool.

Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination also you will be able to notice the difference which you never felt before.

Parsley (Cilantro) is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!
