Finn From Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Is The Real MVP.


john-boyega

On Friday, John Boyega met Star Wars super fan, 5-year-old Daniel Bell. The youngster has been diagnosed with a brain tumour and his wish was to meet Finn. That became a reality when the two spent the afternoon hanging out and passing around toys to other sick children in a London hospital. “When I heard about Daniel’s wish to meet Finn, I jumped at the chance to make it come true,” the actor says. “It was fantastic to be a part of his very special wish with Rays of Sunshine. It was also great to meet the children at The Royal London Hospital and be a part of something so positive.”

Daniel’s mother meanwhile released a statement via Facebook in which she praised the actor for making her son’s wish come true. “Thank you so so much ‘Rays of Sunshine’ and John Boyega for granting Daniel’s wish to meet Finn and take toys to the hospital. It was just amazing, I have no words! Daniel is still totally overwhelmed, I have never seen him so happy.” Boyega has frequently shown himself to be a real class act and nice guy, and this is yet another example of that.

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I’m just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper.

Park And Slide :300 Foot Long Slip-N-Slide


Park-and-Slide

Creating a 300-foot water slide down the middle of a public road sounds like a very American thing to do, but nope. Park and Slide is a crowdfunding project created by artist Luke Jerram that will turn Park Street in Bristol, England, into the coolest city in the world. That’s the goal at least; to shut down the street for a day, build the slide out of plastic sheeting and hay-bales, and open it up to the public—for free. The hills in this southwest England town are plentiful (they’ve been used for soapbox derbies before), so there should be no problem generating speed.

What started as a photographer trying to capture as much as he could while traveling while his girlfriend pulled him along has now become an internet sensation. Russian producer Murad Osmann and his gorgeous girlfriend, Natalia Zakharova, have been traveling the world together for quite some time. Beginning in Barcelona in September of 2011, Osmann started labeling his Instagram photospictures “Follow me” where he takes beautiful pictures of his girlfriend pulling his arm through exotic and familiar locations around the world. In the small breaks between his busy work schedule, the jet-setting lovebirds have travelled to Singapore, Bali, Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, England, and China and continue to document their journeys.

Luxury Abbots Way Property, Southampton, England


UK-based design practice and RIBA award-winning AR Design Studio has completed another stunning property on the south coast of England. Boarded by mature trees and a lake it is perfect setting for ultimate relaxation and privacy. The five-bedroom house, whilst contemporary, juxtaposes superbly with its tranquil location. The whole look and feel of this luxury English property is very liner and areas are clearly defined by defined by timber paths and large stone walls that begin in the gardens and run straight through the house. The walls link to a further separate office and gym space at the bottom of the garden. These dividing walls create four separate garden experiences, an entrance space, a calm pebbled Japanese herb garden, a private enclosed wooded space dedicated to the kitchen and master bedroom above and a large open expanse of tropical plants and lawn reaching down to the lake, reflecting the open plan living space that looks over it. The upper sleeping floor of the contemporary English property is sat on top of the walls appearing to float above the lower floor. There are five bedrooms, all with large glazed areas, providing beautiful tree top views of the lake and surrounding woodland, creating a sense of being amongst the tree canopy whilst lying in bed. The ground floor living areas, nestled under the sleeping box are enclosed with large sliding glazed panels that provide a seamless link between the internal and external. The terrace further accentuates this, with the use of a single style of floor tile inside, that extends outside through flush thresholds to really give a true sense of ‘inside/outside living’. The house is surrounded by a moat providing a metaphoric sense of security between the outside world and the inner sanctum. Crossing it via a bridge to access the front door, enables the owners to psychologically leave the outside world behind and enter into their own retreat. The unique kitchen has two distinct sections; the main front of house ‘display’ kitchen  that is perfect for cooking, entertaining and socializing, and the more functional back of house ‘hidden’ kitchen for the sink, dishwasher and washing machine.  These two areas are beautifully separated by invisible kitchen doors which disappear within the kitchen furniture when closed and create the connection between both spaces when open. This bespoke contemporary kitchen, with furniture from the iconic German kitchen company SieMatic and Gaggenau appliances, was designed and installed by Hampshire’s leading kitchen and interior architecture specialist, The Myers Touch. The palette of materials used is modest and understated. White and grey render adorn the floating box. Natural stone, inspired by local 12th-century abbey that sets the vernacular for the area, is used for the walls that dominate the ground floor providing rugged contrast. Dark floor tiles inside and out make the experience of the house, that of calm play between light and space without boundaries. The luxury English house is super insulated to create a highly energy efficient home, with under floor heating providing warmth and large overhangs to reduce solar gain in the summer months while allowing passive solar heating in the winter.
