Cecil The Lion Projected Onto Empire State Building With Other Endangered Animals

A glowing image of murdered Cecil the Lion has been projected onto the Empire State Building in New York, to raise awareness of endangered animals like Cecil, who was killed by American dentist Walter Palmer, sparking outrage around the world.

Cecil was among a range of animals projected onto the iconic building, including a tiger, eagle, whale and lizard, in a show which trilled spectators on Saturday night in the US.

The images of Cecil and other creatures covered 33 floors of the building in an eight-minute video loop, and could be seen for miles around.

The “Projecting Change on the Empire State Building” show was created by Louie Psihoyos, director of the Oscar-winning 2009 film “The Cove,” which raised awareness of Japan’s brutal dolphin-hunting industry. 

The event was created to help promote a Discovery channel documentary, “Racing Extinction,” which is set to air in December, but comes just as people around the world are calling out for an end to poaching and hunting endangered animals.

Now this has to be the most epic way of drawing attention to a cause. Louie Psihoyos of the Oceanic Preservation Society came up with the idea of projecting photos of endangered species onto the Empire State Building. 

Photographer Matthew Pillsbury applied his long exposure talent to the event from a viewing party on a nearby rooftop.

Westerlands Economic Development Plan

(For previous parts in the series, see here)

So this development plan is slightly unusual, in that it’s covering a part of Westeros that I’ve actually written about the economics of in some detail - see here, here, here, here, and here- and the Westerlands is actually unlike most of the regions we’ve covered on this series. It’s actually more economically-developed than its peers (going by percent of the population not employed in food production), and has a huge amount of liquid capital it could dump into economic development.

So, if I’m the head of House Lannister, how do I play such a strong opening hand?
