Tumblr, Hawai’i needs your support now more than ever.
Kea, one of our most sacred mountains, is under attack. Since the 70′s,
telescopes have been built on its summit, destroying the ecosystem and
sacred sites. Right now, there are 13 telescopes, and now, certain
people want to build another one. Except this one will be 30 meters (98+
ft.) tall, and costing over $1.4 billion. Because of the mountain’s
unstable surface, construction workers for the other telescopes have had
to basically blow up certain areas and smooth it out to make it more
stable. Mauna Kea is already over 40 feet (12 m) lower than before
Even though many people were arrested after a series
of peaceful protests, we are still fighting. Mauna Kea is sacred to our
people, and it is not theirs to build on. This land is ancient and
sacred, and it does not belong to the United States, or the State of
Christ the Redeemer (Portuguese: Cristo Redentor) is an Art Deco statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, created by French sculptor Paul Landowski and built by the Brazilian engineer Heitor da Silva Costa, in collaboration with the French engineer Albert Caquot. It is 30 metres (98 ft) tall, not including its 8-metre (26 ft) pedestal, and its arms stretch 28 metres (92 ft) wide.
The statue weighs 635 metric tons (625 long, 700 short tons), and is located at the peak of the 700-metre (2,300 ft) Corcovadomountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city of Rio. As a symbol of Brazilian Christianity, the statue has become an icon for Rio de Janeiro and Brazil. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone, and was constructed between 1922 and 1931.
The statue of Christ the Redeemer with open arms, a symbol of peace, was chosen. Local engineer Heitor da Silva Costa designed the statue; it was sculpted by Polish-French sculptor Paul Landowski. Gheorghe Leonida contributed by portraying Jesus Christ’s face on the statue, which made him famous.
A group of engineers and technicians studied Landowski’s submissions and the decision was made to build the structure out of reinforced concrete (designed by Albert Caquot) instead of steel, more suitable for the cross-shaped statue. The outer layers are soapstone, chosen for its enduring qualities and ease of use. Construction took nine years, from 1922 to 1931 and cost the equivalent of US$250,000 ($3,300,000 in 2015). The monument was opened on October 12, 1931.During the opening ceremony, the statue was lit by a battery of floodlights turned on remotely by shortwave radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi, stationed 5,700 miles (9,200 km) away in Rome.(x)
Fireworks, Music and Puppets in Flames: Welcome to Las Fallas

Giant wooden puppets, over-the-top gowns and a deafening storm of fire and gunpowder: welcome to Fallas, one of the biggest festivals in Spain, taking place this week in the Mediterranean city of Valencia. “There is smoke all over the streets from the fireworks,” Valencian student and Fallas lover Juan Carlos Ruiz (@jcarumu) says. “Thousands dance to the music of bands playing in every corner and stop at the traditional food stalls offering paella and churros con chocolate, a must during Fallas.” Local artisans spend months building the satiric ninots, puppets made of wood and papier-mâché that rise up to 98 feet (30 meters) tall. They will end up in flames during the night of La Cremà (which translates as “the burning”) to pay homage to the fire while welcoming the spring. “This is my favorite moment. It’s such a magical night,” Juan Carlos says. “The city is covered by the light of fireworks and flames.” #Fallas2016

I think waterfalls might outnumber people in the Westfjords, there seems to be another waterfall around every corner, Dynjandi waterfall is the biggest of them all and is for sure the jewel of the Westfjords. Dynjandi looks like a bridal veil - on top it is 30 meters (98 ft) wide and widens up to 60 meters (197 ft) at the bottom. Actually it´s a series of waterfalls, one after another, 7 in all and this is the top part we see here
Driving the twisting routes of Westfjord’s wind- and snow-whipped mountain passes can be hair-raising but it´s more than worth it
