Everyone knows the tune. Learn the words, and SING!

When the core values (and not only family values) of civilization are at stake, it is time to go back to the old and trusty J.S. Bach hymns, fit them with a new, contemporary text, and start singing.

Rise up

We don't sing in our protests much anymore. We should change that.

This song isn't necessarily the catchiest, but it's a well-known hymn tune to many ("O sacred head, now wounded") and its message is clear.

Brothers and sisters, it's time to rise up singing.

Danke, Claudia Roth.

Unsere Demokratie (was davon noch übrig ist) und der gesamte öffentliche Diskurs muss wehrhafter werden gegen den sich ausbreitenden rechten Sumpf.

Man kann ja von Frau Roth halten was man will, aber hier hat sie wirklich recht:

"All das ist kein Zufall, kein Spiel, kein Geplänkel. In aller Klarheit: Die AfD will unsere Gesellschaft grundlegend verändern, und damit schadet sie uns. Wenn es in unserem Land mittlerweile ausreicht, eine Bundestagsdebatte gemäß Geschäftsordnung zu leiten, um etliche Morddrohungen zu erhalten, dann ist eine rote Linie nicht nur erreicht, sondern meilenweit überschritten. Wenn offizielle Videos aus dem Bundestag bewusst instrumentalisiert und zum Teil manipuliert werden, um übelsten Hass zu verbreiten, dann sprengt das jede Grenze des respektvollen Miteinanders. Wenn der schreckliche Mord an einer 14-Jährigen unter Vortäuschung von Pietät und Anstand missbraucht wird, um gegen Politikerinnen und Geflüchtete zu hetzen, dann müssen wir alle – ohne Ausnahme – endlich anerkennen: *Was die AfD in Deutschland vorhat, hat nichts mit politischem Austausch oder demokratischer Debattenkultur zu tun, mit „besorgten Bürgern“ oder Protest. Was die AfD tagtäglich vorantreibt, ist die totale Entgrenzung von Sprache, die zügellose Verächtlichmachung von Demokratie, ist Geschichtsrevisionismus und rassistisch-sexistischer Hass auf Andersdenkende.* Und im vorliegenden Fall war es sogar der sprichwörtliche Versuch, alle. zum Schweigen zu bringen."

What started out as an, I must say, very British crazy idea of "I have a Tesla, but I can't take my dog Ted around in it, let's turn it into a shooting brake." came back as a pretty stunning car -- and they didn't plan this to be a one-off, you can actually order one from Qwest.

The idea, and first steps:

Algebra, geometry, lighthouses and sailors.

Imagine our math teachers back then explaining the wonders of π like this.

And, I wonder what someone like +Jacob Collier would make of this musically.

Proof by harmony, that would be a wonderful thing.
A few months ago, I shared a link to a video which used lighthouses around a lake to prove an interesting fact about the number π. Now there's a follow-up video, proving an even stranger fact about it: the "Wallis product," that

(2/1) * (2/3) * (4/3) * (4/5) * (6/5) * (6/7) * ... = π / 2

Here each even number appears in two successive numerators, and each odd number in two successive denominators.

Unlike the previous video, this video involves them coming up with a brand-new proof — and maybe surprisingly, this proof is easier than the last one. (It does involve more algebra and less geometry, though) In fact, not only is it easier than the last one, but it actually proves an even stronger result: that for any number f between 0 and 1, the product of (k-f)/k for every nonzero integer k is equal to (sin πf)/(πf). The "Wallis product" above is just the special case of that for f=1/2.

If your profession as a photographer is the depiction of nature's beauty, it does make sense to be active in its preservation -- as it does for everybody else :-)
Please Read


I consider myself very fortunate to have found what makes me feel alive. My passion for nature photography has permitted me to travel to some of the most amazing places on earth, to have amazing life experiences, to express my creativity and meet amazing people along the way. As much as all of these made me feel incredible, I always had that deep feeling that I am not doing enough, not giving back enough. I remember one day I heard a man say something that really struck a chord inside of me. "Always Leave a Place Better Than You Found It"

These words led me to start thinking about my whole life, If I was to leave tomorrow, would I have made this world better for others to enjoy? And, no matter how I looked at it, I kept telling myself, I know I could do a lot better! Yes, I am creating, sharing the beauty of our planet but for what purpose exactly? Is all this strictly ego driven? Kinda hard to explain but lately, more than ever, I have this little voice inside my head (maybe I am going a little crazy :P ) that keeps telling me "Make sure you start acting now!" The last thing I want to do is to leave my true purpose behind. 

So for the past few months, I have reflected greatly on who I am, who I want to be and how can I get there? It is only by experiencing who I did not want to be that I was able to see who I truly wanted to become. I know that I have several passions. Nature, Traveling and Photography of course but I also love to help others as much as I can. The latter one is constantly having more and more meaning in my life. Being able to take pictures of amazing locations is one thing, but giving back and making a difference in our world and in people's lives is priceless. I had to find a way to combine all my passions together, combine them in a way that it would really make a difference.



It is for that reason that I have decided to create a project called "Give Back to Nature". Its first goal will be to help plant One Million Trees in developing countries, thus help villages and communities and rebuild the natural landscapes destroyed by deforestation. I have been working very hard lately in order to set up this project which I hold very close to my heart. I truly believe that together we can make a difference and leave this world a better place. It is not the work of a single brick that builds kingdoms but more the way they all hold themselves together that makes it possible. 


Not often did I ask you to share my posts, but this time it would really mean the world to me if you do help me get the word out and join me in this giving venture. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and for your help in spreading awareness about this project.

I have set up various easy ways you can participate and contribute to the project. Please visit http://www.GiveBacktoNature.com to find easy ways you can contribute to the cause.

To celebrate the launch of The Give Back to Nature project, I personally commit to planting one tree for each person that shares this post.

Wishing you all a beautiful day <3

Sometimes, a late night show joke gets a little bit out of hand, and turns into creating an Amazon #1 bestseller (proceeds going to a Good Cause).

Also: The Art of Trolling using Amazon 1-star reviews.
