May I make one suggestion (no offense to Dexter) : from 2:58 through 3:09 (when the caption actually says "their chorus is among the loudest in nature") couldn't the great music track gently and temporarily fade almost out, leaving room to a cicadas crescendo ?
An audio-CONTRAST would enhance the natural side of this masterpiece as well as its musical score, don't you think ?
Cicadas are famous for their songs... let's really hear them !
Loudly. At least once in the footage.
Thank you SO MUCH, Samuel and Dexter.
And now to donate...”
“Horse meat, though not eaten in the US, is DELICIOUS ! Slightly more gamy than beef.
A "Steak Tartar" is all raw horse meat, olive oil, an egg yolk, capers, salt and pepper.
BK should make 100% horse meat burgers...”
“Do NOT get into this, young generation.
You WILL regret it, whether you understand it/believe it or not.
You have already all but lost the small amount of critical thinking American education offers you.
You are slaves - and VICTIMS - of gadgetry.
All this young man really is after is making money on your backs.
YOUR future is in no-one else's hands but YOUR OWN.”

1- Your photo is totally average.
2- I often take pics of public scenes but always make a point of NOT photographing
people. You should too.
3- They would be 100% in their right to sue you.
4- HUFFPOST, why are you posting such garbage ?”

“"3- They would be 100% in their right to sue you."
They have absolutely zero, nadda, zilch right to sue. As long as the images are not used in an advertisement the photographer is free to post the images and even sell them as Art or Journalism.”

He also didn't 1.Get his eye brows arched, call his kids, wash his dog, check his mail, read a book, There must be over a trillion things he did not do before the show....things that did not affect him or the show. Those of us who are not nitpicking petty fault finders didn't mind......”

“I once wrote Mr Obama asking him how his Mom would feel if she could read about her son constantly being referred to as "Black".
The first "Black" American President...
I so wish Mr Obama - whose heart and soul are so very bi-partisan - would call himself biracial.
The first "Black-and-White" American President.”

“I absolutely agree with you. People forget that his mother was white and he was raised by his white grandmother. As a mother of 3 sons n 3 grandsons I too want them know that all things are possible. Look at our President Obama! As a native Hawaiian I am truly proud that he was born in Hawaii where we have such a diverse culture of people. God Bless him.”

“His realistic mom, especially after receiving the looks from strangers, would realize she was a white mother of a black son. And in Indonesia, they would throw things at him walking down the street; there was no way she could not have known. She was a smart lady.”

“That would just be out of character with the history of of this nation. One drop makes you Black, and that's about the size of it. When they show up at teaparty rallies with monkey dolls, do you think that they are thinking only of his Black half? When they make the kind of remarks that Sununu was stupid enough to go public with, that he thought of the President's mother?
Nope. This is the United States and Barack Obama is a Black man, plain and simple.”

“So how do you think the normal American sees this President...
Thomas Jeffersons kids from Sally Hemmings was not seen as black and White..they were seen as 3/5th a person. In many ways we have not traveled far from that point...This president has taken us further into the present and all our kids will be the better for it.
My best friend is a black guy. He is very black and is more Irish than African. I have the heritage of North African, Greek and Irish and am very white....We are not our color...”
“Born in France on May 1, 1881, Pierre TEILHARD de Chardin (not Tielhard !) was a Jesuit and a Scientist.
From 1905 to 1908 he taught Physics in Cairo, Egypt.
In 1911, ordained a Jesuit priest, he started studying Paleontology.
Back from WWI, he pursued Natural Science degrees in Geology, Botany and Zoology at the Sorbonne.
Two years after he first traveled to China, the Jesuits ordered him to withdraw his "Doctrine of Original Sin" and his teaching position was taken away from him.
In order to remain a Jesuit, he agreed and left for China.
He lived there for the next 20 years, participated in five Geological research expeditions, created a Geological map of China and contributed to international research in Paleontology centered around the South Eastern Asian continent.
From his home in Beijing, he traveled the world extensively on many scientific studies.
In 1955 while in residence at the Jesuit church of Saint Ignatius of Loyola in New-York City, he fell ill.
Having expressed the wish to die on Easter Sunday, he actually passed away of a heart attack on Sunday April 10, 1955 (Easter) at the age of 73.
He is buried at the Jesuit Novitiate in St Andrew's-on-the-Hudson, in Poughkeepsie, NY.
