Adriana Lima Captivates on Harper’s Bazaar Spain’s Flawless Black & White Covers

The last time Harper’s Bazaar Spain caught our forum’s attention this much was back in March with a sophisticated Stella Maxwell on the cover. This month, the ever-gorgeous Adriana Lima stars on two covers for July 2017, marking what seems to be Yolanda Sacristan‘s debut as editor-in-chief. Shot by Vincent Peters, Adriana looks like a goddess in the flawless and captivating black and white images.

Antarctica Is Under Attack From…Houseflies?

Antarctica Is Under Attack From…Houseflies?

Temperatures around the globe have been rising steadily over the past several decades. Even Polar Regions are losing ice and gaining vegetation. This means that Antarctica is becoming a haven for insects, particularly the housefly. Researchers have noted a marked increase in the amount of fly larvae and plant life around the southern regions of Antarctica. Cargo ships often bring flies to the Antarctic coast, but normally they don’t survive. However, the warmer climate is allowing flies, and other insects, to survive Antarctica’s harsh climate. During the last three decades the average temperature around the coastal regions of Antarctica has increased by three degrees Celsius. Experts are concerned about how insects will impact Antarctica’s ecosystem.

 

According o Dominic Hodgson of the British Antarctic Survey, flies arrive in Antarctica regularly by ship, and these invasive flies carry pathogens that could be devastating to other life forms that are native to Antarctica. Surprisingly, Antarctica is already home to several different species of insect, and moss grows in many southern regions of the continent. Both native insects as well as indigenous forms of moss are currently under threat from non-native insects that arrive in Antarctica through tourism and global warming.

Many people don’t realize that the continent of Antarctica sees a high amount of tourism. During the years of 2015 and 2016, thirty eight thousand people visited Antarctica. These tourists would unknowingly bring with them insects from other regions around the world. Insect larvae can sometimes find their way into polar soil when tourists set their bags on the ground. Tourism has been a major threat to the conservation of the Antarctic ecosystem for some time now, but when this threat from tourism is coupled with rising global temperatures, the threat facing Antarctica’s natural environment becomes much more serious. Under these conditions, the ecosystem of Antarctica will certainly face some degree of environmental harm from invading houseflies.

How far north have you traveled? And did you see any spiders or insects in any extreme northern regions of the globe? If so, what type of insects did you spot?

Here's how the police officer who shot Philando Castile described the shooting

The Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile said he thought Castile would act recklessly because he smelled marijuana in his car.

Jeronimo Yanez told the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension in an interview the day after the shooting that he initially pulled Castile over as he thought he matched the description of a suspect in a gas-station robbery he had responded to a week prior to the shooting.

Yanez said he smelled the odor of “burnt” marijuana in Castile’s car as he walked up to the driver’s side window.

He didn’t tell Castile that he smelled the marijuana at first because he didn’t want Castile to “react in a defensive manner.”

Yanez told Castile that he had had a busted taillight.

Yanez said he was worried that Castile may be carrying a weapon for protection from drug dealers or others trying to “rip” or steal from him.

“It appeared to me that he had no regard to what I was saying,” Yanez said. “He didn’t care what I was saying. He still reached down.”

“And at that point I was scared and I was in fear for my life and my partner’s life,” Yanez said. He said he saw Castile grab something near his right thigh.

“I know he had an object — and it was dark,” Castile said.

Yanez said he was concerned for the “little girl” in the back, who was Castile’s girlfriend’s daughter.

“As that was happening, as he was pulling at, out his hand I thought, I was gonna die and I thought if he’s, if he has the guts and the audacity to smoke marijuana in front of the 5-year-old girl and risk her lungs and risk her life by giving her secondhand smoke and the front seat passenger doing the same thing then what, what care does he give about me?” Yanez added.

Yanez said he remembered “smelling the gun smoke” and the “bright flashes from the muzzle.”

“And then I heard, a couple pops from my firearm,” Yanez said.

He shot Castile seven times just 38 seconds after he first pproached Castile’s window.

Yanez was acquitted by a jury last Friday of second-degree manslaughter.
