Les Calotte Polaires et le Réchauffement Climatique - Ice Sheets and Global Warming

BY XAVIER FETTWEIS
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 20, 2014

La réponse des deux calottes polaires (Groenland et Antarctique) à une hausse des températures est complètement différente.
La calotte du Groenland pourrait disparaitre à terme si on a une hausse de 3°C alors que celle de l'Antarctique pourrait atténuer dans un premier temps la hausse prévue du niveau de mers. Néanmoins, elle pourrait fondre à la base et se disloquer...

The response of both ice sheets to global change will be fully different.
The Greenland ice sheet would collapse if we have a temperature increase > 3°C while the Antarctica ice could mitigate the sea level rise in a first time. However, it could melt at its basis and break also in future ...

Kal Barteski: Polar Bear Artist

BY KAL BARTESKI
@ VOL 36 ON NOV 22, 2018

Artist and activist Kal Barteski is a notable figure in the arts scene in Winnipeg who is most famously known for her playful script work and polar bear art. She calls herself a "polar bear artist", and rightfully so as she's successfully spread her work throughout the city and beyond. Here in her PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk, Kal talks about polar bears (of course), why they're important, and what you can learn from them. She also talks about her work and her initiatives not only in Winnipeg but in Churchill, Manitoba, the polar bear capital of the world.

Kal's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, on November 22 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Yagoda Galo (Halo-Berry) – is a band from Arkhangelsk

Yagoda Galo (Halo-Berry) – is a band from Arkhangelsk, considering and performing music as a life adventure. The sound of the band is created with a virtuosic domra (Russian folk string instrument), emotional rhythm section and original sound effects. Yagoda Galo style is a mix of fancy tunes, expression, lyric and dance energy. Presenter: Nick Vymorkov   The band unites original and professional musicians: Nick Vymorkov - voice, acoustic guitarVera Larushina - domraSlava Pronin - bass, sound processorsOleg Chaikovsky - drumsArtur Rozhkov – percussion synthesizers, samplers In 2008 Yagoda Galo was nominated for an award of a significant international ethno-music festival Sayan Ring in Siberia. The committee of the festival includes representatives of Russia, Tuva, Khakassia and Yakutia, famous musicians and producers. Since then the band takes part in many different events in Russia – from small regional festivals to the largest Russian independent music festival Empty Hills. Since 2009 Yagoda Galo has realized an amazing DREAMBOAT TOUR – a tour through the country by car. The band covered in total more than 100000 km (twice the length of the Earth equator, about 1/4 of distance from the Earth to the Moon), performing in most of regional capitals in North-West and Central part of Russia, and to the Ural mountains. On the basis of the received concert experience and communication with musicians with different national background the band Yagoda Galo got an idea to prepare a concert program, representing Arkhangelsk regional culture and creating an image of the White Sea and the Russian North. As a result, in 2010-2012 Yagoda Galo recorded an album, named POLAR– a vivid compilation of originally arranged traditional and author’s songs. The band plans to publish and make a presentation of the album POLAR in spring 2013.

Her storyboards leading up to the book became part of her blog, and would eventually became part of Labo. "Paper is still alive" she says, calling for new participants and collaborators. Get in touch with her to participate!
