Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald (Official Trailer).

With Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald set to focus on the rivalry between Albus Dumbledore and the villainous magician the sequel is named after, we don’t really know what role Eddie Redmayne’s magizoologist will end up playing in the J.K. Rowling penned release. However, this trailer changes that by making it clear he’ll actually be working as a proxy of sorts for his teacher.  There’s not a huge amount of Johnny Depp in the teaser (probably because a lot of fans have campaigned for him to be removed from the project after claims made by his ex-wife Amber Heard) but we do get a glimpse of his villain and a better idea of what he has planned for the Wizarding World.

Everybody sees the world in a different way, some people can find the beauty in anything and anywhere. With only having one good eye people must have thought that he had a disadvantage. Little did they know that his view of the world would be spectacular to follow.

I grew up blind in one eye and this might have changed the way I view the world. I don’t know. It’s hard to be objective about the way one’s brain was wired. My background is in computer science and math, so I bring an algorithm-like process to capturing the scene in such a way that it evokes memories in a palpable manner. Whatever that means. My promise to you: One New Photo Every Day. Probably.

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

The world faces critical food shortages in the near future as demand for meet is expected to increase by more than two-thirds, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Cultured Beef represents the crucial first step in finding a sustainable alternative to meat production. This technology has been pioneered by Dr. Mark Post of Maastricht University. The world’s first cultured beef burger was cooked and tasted in London as proof of concept that this revolution in food science is possible.

The 10 Most Expensive Foods In The World.

From food app dishpal comes an infographic detailing some of the most expensive foods in the world, among which are gold-lined, truffle-laced and wine soaked foods.  The most expensive dish is a $16,000 meat pie sold at the Fence Gate Inn in Lancashire. Filled with 6 lbs of Kobe beef, each slice will set you back $2,000.  What does that princely sum buy you? A meat pie marinated in two bottles of 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, filled with truffles and Matsusake mushrooms, and edible 23-carat gold for garnish.  At New York’s Westin hotel at Times Square, chef Frank Tujague created a limited time $1,000 bagel stuffed with white truffle cream cheese and goji berry-infused Riesling jelly with gold leaves (pictured above).  And from BrewDog in Scotland comes an $800 to $1,100 pint of Belgian ale that comes in a dead, squirrel carcass.  Other expensive foods on the graphic include a $12,000 pizza topped with lobster, caviar, eight different cheeses and hand-picked Australian river salt from Italy.  And there is a Samundari Khazana Seafood Curry at $3,000, ironically released to coincide with the film Slumdog Millionaire….
