Doctors Tell Musician to Play Violin During Brain Surgery So She Won’t Forget

 

A musician at King’s College Hospital in London played the violin while surgeons operated on her brain to remove a tumour.

The medical team asked Dagmar Turner, 53, to play the instrument to ensure parts of the brain which control delicate hand movements and coordination were not damaged during the millimetre-precise surgery.

Turner was diagnosed in 2013 with a brain tumour after suffering a seizure during a symphony

Combing the Beach for Stones and Reorganizing Them Into Something Beautiful

beach stone land art by jon foreman 7 Combing the Beach for Stones and Reorganizing Them Into Something Beautiful

 

Jon Foreman is a creator of various styles of land art, be it with stones or leaves, inland or on beaches. He has even created works in derelict environments using materials such as broken glass or ashes and general debris.

The scale of his work varies massively; he may use stones or driftwood to make something small and minimal. Otherwise he may be seen drawing massive scale sand drawings up to 50 metres across.

Most often the weather and immediate climate will make his work disappear (be blown down/washed away by the tide), and sometimes other people will interfere. This is all part of the creative process and has proven to benefit his work.

You can find all of his fantastic works on his website where he also sells prints. You can also follow him on his socials listed below.

This Contact Sword Routine is Absolutely Mesmerizing

 

Apparently ‘contact swords’ is like a more dangerous version of contact juggling, not too dissimilar from baton twirling. It looks beautiful and pretty badass at the same time.

Shocking Footage from Sendai Airport During 9.0 Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011

 

The Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011 was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan, and the fourth most powerful earthquake in the world since modern record-keeping began in 1900.

The earthquake triggered powerful tsunami waves that may have reached heights of up to 40.5 meters (133 ft) in Miyako in Tōhoku’s Iwate Prefecture, and which, in the Sendai area, traveled at 700 km/h (435 mph) for up to 10 km (6 mi) inland.

Watch the harrowing moments above from video taken at Sendai Airport.
