Woven into the cultural fabric of the area, the ancient giants are still at the center of many local mystical belief systems and superstitions. Although the recent eruption of Mount Agung forced 70,000 Balinese from their homes, scientists estimate the volcano will enrich their lands with some of the most fertile soil on the planet.

Explore the unique relationship between the Indonesian people and their volcano neighbors in this experimental short from Justin Pelletier and Adam Maruniak at Brick Productions.

Visit an Immense, Real-Life Fairy-Tale Castle | National Geographic

High in the Alpine foothills of Germany sits one of the most iconic castles in Europe. The “fairy-tale” king, Ludwig II of Bavaria, built this dazzling Neuschwanstein palace to withdraw from public life after losing his power in the Austro-Prussian war. It’s believed that he built his new castle as the centerpiece for an imagined kingdom—one in which he was the true king.

Within a few centuries, almost all of the island’s trees were slashed and burned to make room for farming. This rapid deforestation has resulted in massive soil erosion that puts the island at risk for desertification.

Today, the Icelandic Forest Service has taken on the mammoth task of bringing back the woodlands. With the help of forestry societies and forest farmers, Iceland’s trees are slowly beginning to make a comeback. Watch this short film by Euforgen to learn more about how their efforts are working to benefit Iceland’s economy and ecology through forestry.

Wallfahrtsort für Zarentreue

Ein wahrhaft religiöser Kult ist im nachsowjetischen Russland entstanden um den letzten Zaren Nikolaus II. und seine Familie, vor allem in Jekaterinburg, dem Ort ihrer Ermordung.

Die Teams von russland.TV waren im August nicht etwa untätig – nein, sie waren in verschiedensten Regionen Russlands unterwegs, um von dort für Euch nun Interessantes und Außergewöhnliches zu berichten. Die deutsche Abteilung war dabei in Jekaterinburg und begegnete dort dem religiösen Kult um die Zarenfamilie, der sich vor allem an den Orten ihrer Inhaftierung und Liquidierung sowie am Fundort der Leichen konzentriert. Eine intensive Heiligenverehrung mit den strengen Regeln der sehr konservativen russisch-orthodoxen Kirche hat sich hier entwickelt, die manchem unbedarften ausländischen Besucher schon fast merkwürdig vorkommen könnte.

Unser Bericht beleuchtet dabei vor allem das Bild, das sich heutigen Besuchern der Orte bildet und der in all den geschichtlichen Reportagen über die letzten Lebenswochen der russischen Herrscher meist etwas kurz kommt. Vom deutschen Team entführt Euch in den Ural unsere ebenfalls aus Russland zurückgekehrte Anna Gamburg, die Ihr ab sofort wieder jeden Sonntag mit ihrer Reihe Russland.direct bei uns findet – mit News, Politik und Wissenswertem direkt aus Russland. Ihre eigene Homepage bei uns findet Ihr unter http://www.russland.direct

Top 5 Must-See Attractions in Yosemite | National Geographic

By placing Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove under federal protection in 1864, Abraham Lincoln paved the way for what would later become California’s Yosemite National Park. See the tallest waterfall in North America, massive sequoia trees in Mariposa Grove, and endless wildlife throughout the park. From mountainous vistas to valleys of wildflowers, it is clear why this sprawling wilderness has awed and inspired the likes of John Muir and Ansel Adams.

The site was used as a ceremonial banquet hall by the pre-Hispanic Moche people. The Moche ruled the coast of northern Peru until they were mysteriously wiped out around 700 AD. The complex would have played host to Moche nobility for political and social activities. Once-colorful murals of marine life, including sea lions and fish, were found at the site, along with pyramid-like structures made of adobe. Artifacts and human remains were also found.

Weltraumaffen-Trainingscenter

Julia Dudnik war in Sotschi und da unweit von dort Russland offizielles Weltraumaffen-Trainingscenter existiert, das man auch besichtigen kann, hat sie es sich einmal angeschaut.

Der Einsatz von Affen in der Raumfahrt hat nicht nur in Russland eine lange Tradition und heutige tierische Raumfahrer kehren nach Angaben er Wissenschaftler des Zentrums auch wohlbehalten auf die Erde zurück. Heute wird der Einsatz der Tiere – zumindest im Falle von Russland – hart attackiert von der internationalen Tierschutzlobby wie Peta. Julia Dudnik liefert Euch ab nächster Woche wieder News aus der russischen Hauptstadt, in die sie zwischenzeitlich wieder zurückgekehrt ist. Ihre Videos findet Ihr unter http://www.moskau.life
