The short film "cup of tea" was a story development that initially makes me think, but it was a short work that remembered a nice and exciting touch (^ ^) Even if I could not understand the words, the impression was transmitted I will come. A nice female photographer is photographing the unexplored nature at the outback of India. Looking back, I have a single boy. When I point the camera to my eyes, "a nice smile" .... A female photographer nailed to the smile of a boy who is poorly dressed. It will be an unexpected development after this · · ·. It is short, about 3 minutes so please take a look.

Video depicting the affection and growth of father and daughter: Poplar (Peupleraie)

It is a music video that feels the beauty of a genuine eyeshot peculiar to this age, and the skill of image composition and direction. Since I was a little girl, I am living with my unfaithful father in a drunken spirit while missing my thoughts and hopes for my mother at a poplar plantation. Some of you also look calmly with loneliness at the same time, with love and intimacy towards your father. It depicts that it grows so fast as "Poplar" of the title. It is a wonderful music video that makes you feel sad while drawing the dignified father's affection and daughter's heart.

Millennium Falcon (Millennium Falcon) into a dream

Millennium Falcon (also known as Falcon) is an imaginary spaceship with Captain Han solo appearing in the movie Star Wars series. There is a synonym of "the fastest galaxy of the Galaxy" from its cluttered appearance that does not suit performance with its excellent high speed power. Although the Falcon of the original plan stage was produced as a slim stick and Prop, but George Lucas was not convinced because it resembled the Eagle of "Space 1999", after repeating redesign a number of times, It seems that Lucas was decided based on the sketch which flashed by seeing "pizza" which I had at lunch with ILM staffs. "Star Wars" mania, together with his father and his family, has made the "Star Wars" bedroom (the size of the twin bed). Dericrw of imager (imgur) user is publishing the room, it is talked about. In my dreams, it seems I'd be able to enjoy the world of "Star Wars" dramatically (^ ^) Directed by Akira Kurosawa in a world that has been thoroughly dirty expression so that it evaluated "This movie is dirty", a garakuta In order to be called Falcon, the prop has a particularly flashy expression of stain. This Falcon No. is faithfully reproducing "dirty" and it is wonderful. This room is unified with the world view of "Star Wars" from LED color switching lighting to walls and interior.

Lovely scene and creative of baby and mama

"Liberty ♪" posted the landscape that I saw at Grand Central Station in New York subway station. I feel like a "lovely scene" and "creative landscape". Is there anything you can see in the station building in Japan? Is it only developed countries to maintain special facilities for "babies and moms" or to set up a private space? Is it a mature rich society? Is it a creative society? Can you respond to the digital economy? Looking at public spaces such as railroads, subway stations, art museums and libraries around the world, we see "social values ​​of values", "welfare policy", "social acceptability", "diversity" "education" "Creativity" etc. are visible (^ ^) There are public facilities and commercial facilities that need consideration for "baby and mama", but human beings are "people" from baby's time to elderly people. Human society has "babies and moms", "elderly people" and "disabled people" in every space. In the post-war growth period of the Japanese society, it has fostered "priority, hierarchy, discipline", "social norms", etc. in all fields, and also narrowed the tolerance and diversity of society ... "Baby and Mama", is a keyword that can be said to be the most important task that Japan has. I want to make casual "nice scene" not only in the children's park but also in everyday living space, public space and commercial space, and Japan as "creative society" including "baby and mama" (^ ^) Baby in New York "No Music, No Life":) (How to play in NY) Tags: street corner musicians & performers (113) (How to play NY) A beautiful scene and future creativity is nurtured.

Two strange two people and one family living in Florida in the United States. A 7 - year - old cheeky Mary (Mckenna Grace), her uncle, Frank of the single, and Fred of "the greatest cat in history". Mary had a genius talent in mathematics by nature, but in accordance with the deceased elder sister's mother, "I want to grow normally" my uncle Frank stubbornly refuses Mary's gifted education . But Frank's mother who should have broke into it appeared and tried to rob Mary from him. Flowering of a talent changing history, or life living with loved ones - Which is happier for Mary? In Frank who worried further, there was a "secret" entrusted by my sister. This movie seems to be "a story honoring all life that tells me that it is a talent I love, the most important thing than any excellent talent." It may be the best treasure in life (^ ^) Japan 's "gifted education" seems to be in fact delayed considerably. In Japanese society where standards are regarded as the most important, it leads to "bullying" and it is hard to live. Gifted (2017) (IMDb) Ratings: 7.6 School principals from 10 prestigious schools in Shanghai gathered every other Sunday at the Shanghai Youth Executive Management School to attend the 2nd Sunday of the movie, Activity was held from August to September to talk with them. There, almost all the principals are aligned, and it seems that the parents advised that the precious time of the children should not be wasted by "early gifted education".

A wonderful space from adults to young children The Noguchi Museum

Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum (commonly known as Noguchi Museum: The Noguchi Museum) was founded in Long Island City, New York in 1985. Noguchi himself designs all this museum. It is said that Noguchi's crystal of aesthetic sense of Noguchi captures public space as a work of art (Isogu Noguchi Biography / Noguchi Museum) Dedicated his life to an experimental prototype of art expression, sculpture, garden, furniture and lighting design, ceramics, We have a wide range of works such as stage art. It seems that the work seemed to be the most beautiful scenery playing with parents and children, as well as Isam (^ ^) Isamu Noguchi's work had never received a high evaluation in the US until 1938. In the same year, upon receiving a request for production of a work to be set up at AP Communications Building at Rockefeller Center in New York, we will complete a large sculpture symbolically expressing "freedom of press". This work will be a precedent and a number of public space projects around the world will be highly evaluated. It is a sculpture work reflecting the belief that Isamu Noguchi's sculpture art can play an important social role. Mr. Mikishi living in New York and being a blogger seems to have been to the Noguchi Museum for the first time in a long time since the access from Manhattan became convenient. I have posted nice photos and articles.

Is it lonely even if connected? (TED: Sherry Turkle)

Sherry Turkle was born in New York in 1948 and graduated from Harvard University. He is a clinical psychologist and a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) science and technology society theory. In the latest work by Prof. Sherry · Turkle (February 2017) "There are smartphones -SNS and FTF- even when they are together". A smart phone that widespread rapidly produced everyday life to keep in touch with anytime anywhere. On the other hand, the relationship between parents, friends, and lovers is also bringing about a major change. We analyze the problems that are happening now at home, school and work in abundant interviews and propose what we lost in exchange for convenience and how to regain it. TED Talk below "Is it connected, is lonely?" Is the second most popular talk in the field of AI (artificial intelligence). TED Talks (AI: Japanese: Most Viewed) AI's popular Talk Turtle says, "Why are they isolated, even if they are connected to each other? Isolating will not support the ability to endure loneliness and the ability to be alone I find myself in loneliness, approaching others and then establishing a true relationship. "And" I always misunderstand that it is not lonely by connecting, it is dangerous. Actually It is because it is the opposite, because if you can not stay alone you will be more lonely, and if you do not teach children to be alone, you will be lonely someday. " "Let's think that loneliness is a good thing, let's make one person's time, I will find a way to teach your children that it's worth it." Definition of connection between people is changing with AI and smartphone. It is an interesting TED Talk related to net addiction, smart addiction, and "bullying".
