Doing homework or while working on a written task, our mind wanders a lot. Listening to instrumental tracks while doing our work helps us maintain the focus/interest/concentration. Below are 10 awesome classical tracks that you can play while working.
Recently, during a timeout Phoenix Suns game, performer Nick Corrales overshot his jump, and ended up going through the hoop himslef along with the ball! Fortunately, he came out the stunt with just a bruised nose. The funny thing though is that, no one reacted or cheered or talked about the incident.
When travellers observe their destination’s unfamiliar (to them) surroundings, their documentation of it is purely the one that highlights the beauty they immediately see. In the artistic short film below, Ruslan Fedotow captures a 5 minute view of life all around Syria, an Arab country in Western Asia with an arid landscape, showing the diversity of the people and the beauty of the country. He makes a brilliant use of vibrant imagery and focuses on the things he finds most alluring in Syria.
You might have played all those fancy FPS (First Person Shooter) games on your PCs or Gaming Consoles, but nothing’s as fun as doing it in real life. Recently, a group of guys recreated a first person shooter game in real life. They played it in the woods (a real life map for such a FPS ).

Matt Melis, a longtime NASA engineer, has taken it to YouTube to show off what he calls “the best of the best” imagery from shuttle launches, including a hi-definition video. Melis has been in the launch analysis game for quite some time. His 45-minute tribute to space shuttle launches is incredibly educational and a fascinating watch for fans of space programs.
You’ll get to hear NASA engineers explain every imaginable detail of a shuttle launch as footage from the ground and from the shuttles themselves show what goes into the first phase of a successful space mission. You’ll get to see launches for STS-114, STS-117, and STS-124 missions.
In short, if you’re really into space stuff, this YouTube video is the director’s commentary of your dreams!
Description Of The Video From YouTube
Photographic documentation of a Space Shuttle launch plays a critical role in the engineering analysis and evaluation process that takes place during each and every mission. Motion and Still images enable Shuttle engineers to visually identify off-nominal events and conditions requiring corrective action to ensure mission safety and success. This imagery also provides highly inspirational and educational insight to those outside the NASA family.
This compilation of film and video presents the best of the best ground-based Shuttle motion imagery from STS-114, STS-117, and STS-124 missions. Rendered in the highest definition possible, this production is a tribute to the dozens of men and women of the Shuttle imaging team and the 30yrs of achievement of the Space Shuttle Program.
The video was produced by Matt Melis at the Glenn Research Center.
Melis has been at the Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, for many years. He was part of the ballistics team that analyzed the Columbia launch accident, for example.
