Trip to the first Starbucks in Italy. Via Cordusio in Milan [Video] (3:20)

Trip to the first Starbucks in Italy. Via Cordusio in Milan [Video] (3:20)

We just happened to arrive in Milan on the day that Starbucks opened their first store in Italy. It was all over the news and the day before there was a line down the block to enter. I stopped by the next day. It was busy but no wait to check out this “amusement park” of a coffee bar.

Please forgive the heavily stabilized video as the GoPro did not react well to being worn while walking.

More photos and panoramas coming soon!

On YouTube: The Criminal Mind: The relationships between criminology and psychology – Professor Gwen Adshead via Gresham College

Another great presentation from Gresham College. Their YouTube channel is full of great talks on a wide variety of topics. I am always finding something interesting and enlightening. — Douglas

On YouTube: The Criminal Mind: The relationships between criminology and psychology – Professor Gwen Adshead via Gresham College

On YouTube: The Criminal Mind: The relationships between criminology and psychology - Professor Gwen Adshead via Gresham College

Professor Gwen Adshead explores violence, offenders and the criminal personality through the perspective of psychology and psychiatry. A discussion of how the study of psychology and psychiatry relates to the study of criminology. Historically criminals have been defined as a group who are seen as “other” to non-criminals. However, modern thinking has moved away from this with developments in the psychology of criminal rule-breaking and discussions of how individual psychology can assist the understanding of criminal rule-breaking and risk; including approaches to rehabilitation and behavioural change. Professor Adshead suggests that these different discourses have much to offer one another.

Andy Dexterity offers a glimpse into the ways humans communicate and interact using just our physicality. He also loves translating music and song into movement and finishes with an epic performance to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody at TEDxSydney 2017.

Thanks to Queen for permission to use the song.

Animation by Brendan Harwood.

Andy Dexterity is a Green Room Award-nominated performance maker primarily recognised for his unique brand of movement, fusing dance, physical theatre and signed languages. Andy is fascinated by the way we communicate and interact as a species and creates work with the intention to connect and empower.

Hailing from a theatre background, Andy has performed roles in award-winning shows for Melbourne Theatre Company, Sydney Theatre Company, Opera Australia and Belvoir Street Theatre, including the Australian premieres of Urinetown and Altarboyz.

Andy conceived original “signdance” choreography for Grammy Award-winning pop singer, Kimbra, conducted the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra for The Wiggles Meet The Orchestra, was special guest in the 2014 Outgames Opening Ceremony, performed “signdancing” with Tina Arena and opened the 2015 Australian Dance Awards at The Sydney Opera House. As a choreographer, he devised en-masse “signdancing” for the opening ceremony of the 2015 World Netball Cup, choreographed the Australian revival of RENT – the musical and You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown, both for The Hayes Theatre Company and is currently coordinating and conducting The Sydney Auslan Ensemble for The Sydney Philharmonia’s production of Elijah. As artistic director of the 2016 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, Andy’s main focus was festival accessibility, incorporating Auslan (Australian Sign Language) into as many aspects as possible, including a sign language spectacular for the opening ceremony.

Andy is also an ambassador for Deaf Australia, teaching Auslan (Australian Sign Language) as a part of this role. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Royal Albatross, Taiaroa Head, Royal Albatross Centre, Dunedin, New Zealand

Very rough video of trip onboard the Monarch to cruise Otago Harbor and see the Royal Albatross. This was taken from a rocking boat, but I think there are a few shots worthy of viewing, especially if you haven’t seen an albatross before.
