"Also Called Palais Bulles (bubbles palace) this house near Cannes was designed by architect Antti Lovag and started to be built from 1975 for French industrialist Pierre Bernard, and sold in 1989 by Sothebys to fashion designer Pierre Cardin.
The house stretches over 1200 m2 , including 10 suites decorated by a different artist for each suite, a reception seating 350 persons, and an outdoor auditorium for 500 persons, plus 8500 m2 of garden."
"Health InfoScape from MIT Senseable Cities and GE aims to create new ways of understanding human health in the United States. By analyzing data from over 7.2 million anonymized electronic medical records, taken from across the country, we are seeking to uncover statical relationships between space, geography and health.
We often have a tendency to think of illness as an isolated event, but our first analysis details the numerous (sometimes unexpected) associations that exist around any given condition. This gives us new insight as to how closely connected some seemingly un-related health conditions might be. Such results force us to re-examine conventional categories of disease classification, as the boundaries between traditional disease categories are thoroughly blurred.
Our initial results are a mix of the expected and the unexpected - simultaneously challenging and reaffirming our preconceptions of health pattern, within individuals and across the US."

"The image above featuring a fine example of a fogbow arching over a Brocken spectre and glory was taken on Reunion Island using time-lapse photography. I placed my camera on a tripod, which allowed me to raise my arms during the shooting. The Brocken spectre and glory result primarily from diffraction -- deflection of sunlight about minute cloud droplets. They only form at the antisolar point. Since shadows converge at the antisolar point, the shadow of the photographer or that of the aircraft you're flying in will usually be observed. If the shadow appears ghost-like, because of distortion, it's referred to as a Brocken spectre.
Fogbows form in a way similar to rainbows -- sunlight is refracted and redirected inside of water droplets. However, because the cloud droplets are much smaller than raindrops, the geometric optics are much different. Diffraction of sunlight, not refraction, is much more important. Fogbows are largely pale in color because the very small droplets ensure that colors overlap."

"This image was taken in winter time in a arid area of the Canadian Rockies. Temperatures where below -30 degrees Celsius yet because there was no snow fall the surface of the lake was uncovered allowing me to see and capture the bubbles (gas release from lake bed) that were trapped in the frozen waters."
