20 Classical Paintings Reproduced As Photographs

The creative at Booooom.com recently started a project with the title “Remake” in which they invited creative art lovers to reproduce iconic paintings with photography without the use of any image editing software including Adobe Photoshop. In this remake project Boooooom partnered up with Adobe inviting students from U.K. to participate and send their remakes without digital manipulations.

Below is our pick of the best remakes capturing the basic visual theme and original atmosphere of the masterpieces they imitated.

Who Forgot To Send The Nudes?

Russia plans to colonise the MOON by 2030 according to leaked government document that says robot ‘rovers’ will be sent in 2016


The International Space Station
The Kremlin has fired the starting pistol on its new space race less than three years after the U.S. was forced to start hitching flights on Russian rockets.
Nasa ended its space shuttle programme in 2011 and has faced years of funding cuts.
Just last month a Soyuz rocket carried two Russian cosmonauts and a U.S. astronaut to the International Space Station (above), despite the crisis in Ukraine and tough talking on sanctions.
China, Japan and India have all announced their intention to launch fresh missions to the Moon, which was last visited by humans in 1976.

But Russia's space programme, which achieved the first manned space flight in 1961, is far ahead and is the only one to explicitly call for manned lunar missions.

Just a fortnight ago, the Roscosmos announced plans for the massive new 'super-rockets' capable of lifting payloads of up to 120 tonnes into space.
The latest report was prepared by by the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Roscosmos federal space agency, Moscow State University and several space research institutes.

It envisages international cooperation but stresses the 'independence of the national lunar programme must be ensured regardless of the conditions and extend of participation by foreign partners.'

The document appears to be an expansion on plans to first set out by Moscow last month, when deputy PM Dmitry Rogozin dramatically announced: 'We are coming to the Moon forever.'

In an article in the government's own newspaper headlined 'Russian Space', he spoke of targeting Mars and other 'space objects' as future priorities.
'Flights to Mars and asteroids in our view do not contradict exploration of the moon, but in many senses imply this process.'

He wrote of 'colonisation of the moon and near-moon space'.
In the next 50 years, manned flights are unlikely beyond 'the space between Venus and Mars'. But 'it is quite possible to speak about exploration of Mars, flights to asteroids and flights to Mars'.
The essential first step as a base for research and experiments was the moon, said Mr Rogozin, who is in overall charge of Russia's space and defence industries, and was recently targeted for sanctions over the Ukraine crisis.

Henry Stuart Hazlitt (November 28, 1894 – July 9, 1993) was an American journalist who wrote about business and economics for such publications as The Wall Street JournalThe NationThe American MercuryNewsweek, and The New York Times. He is widely cited in both libertarian and conservative circles.[1]


Henry Hazlitt was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He was a collateral descendant of the British essayist William Hazlitt,[2] but grew up in relative poverty, his father having died when Hazlitt was an infant. His early heroes wereHerbert Spencer and William James, and his first ambition was for an academic career in psychology and philosophy. He attended New York's City College, but left after only a short time in order to support his twice-widowed mother.[3]
Hazlitt started his career at The Wall Street Journal as secretary to the managing editor when he was still a teenager, and his interest in the field of economics began while working there. His studies led him to The Common Sense of Political Economy by Philip Wicksteed which, he later said, was his first "tremendous influence" in the subject.[4] Hazlitt published his first book, Thinking as a Science, at the age of 21. During World War I, he served in the Army Air Service in Texas. He returned to New York, residing atWashington Square Park for many years.[5]
In the early 1920s, he was financial editor of The New York Evening Mail, and it was during this period, Hazlitt reported, that his understanding of economics was further refined by frequent discussions with former Harvard economics professor Benjamin Anderson who was then working for Chase National Bank in Manhattan. Later, when the publisher W. W. Norton suggested he write an official biography of their author Bertrand Russell, Hazlitt spent "a good deal of time," as he described it, with the famous philosopher.[6] Lord Russell "so admired the young journalist's talent" that he had agreed with Norton's proposal,[7] but the project ended after nearly two years of work when Russell declared his intention to write his own autobiography.[6]

America: Lets Save Her From The Fascists In Power...

Pope Urges Governments To Stop Excluding Welfare Recipients From "Dignified labor"

Pope Francis urged the U.N. to "promote development goals that attack the root causes of poverty and hunger, protect the environment and ensure dignified labor for all."

Clearly, the Pope is signaling that he realizes that the root causes of poverty and hunger is free shit. 

Governments should dignify the poor by putting them to work, redistribute wealth from social programs to wages and develop productive work habits that will attack the root causes of poverty (e.g. sloth and free shit).

Since we know, that capitalism reduces pollution and Marxism increases pollution, the Pope is clearly advocating the end of communist and socialist governments in favor of capitalism.

From this point on America will have the cleanest highways and the safest borders with all these new border guards, and sanitary technicians that we can put to work.

If somehow the Pope is not saying this then he is a Marxist lackey. We know the pope is a compassionate man, Marxism is the opposite of compassion, therefore the Pope is not a Marxist.

Solar Oven Transforms Salt Water to Drinkable Water

Of all the water on earth, only an incredibly small percentage is available for us to use and drink… the remainder is largely highly salty water, or at best brackish water with unhealthy levels of salt. For much of the western world, where water is plentifully available and piped right to your location this is hardly an issue for concern; but in countries where limited water availability is compounded by heavy pollution and miles of walking each day to collect it, the situation becomes a lot more dire. Enter Italian designer Gabriele Diamanti and his fascinating Eliodomestico.

The deceivingly simple device transforms salty water to clean drinkable water in one day of sun exposure – just by filling the top-mounted black boiler with salty water and tightening the cap. Throughout the day the temperature and pressure grows within the boiler, forcing steam downward through an internal pipe and into a lower collection lid, where it condenses as fresh water and drips into an earthen basen for transport and use. The setup is simple; cheap and easy to reproduce using widely available materials; and works much more efficiently than costly, conventional solar stills.
Diamanti was inspired to create the project by his own extensive travel and by his friends’ work with NGOs. He saw a world stricken by water scarcity as a graduate student at Milan Polytechnic in 2005, and later decided to pursue the interest as an open-source project – meaning the Eliodomestico is free to copy, modify and distribute. It’s just the thing for challenging locations where manufacturing a product often requires creative use of materials and adaptation to local resources.
For more on this beautiful and thirst quenching project, see the video below and Diamanti’s project page on his personal website.
