    welcome to Miami Beach bienvenidos a la playa de Miami. Today we’re in Miami, a city that’s a melting pot of culture diversity food art and entertainment. Let’s go check it out. They have Art Deco walking tours here at 10:30 a.m. and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. The architecture is one of the most unique highlights of Miami. Did you know that the Art Deco district in South Beach claims the largest concentration of 1920s and 1930s architecture in the world? Today South Beach is home to over 800 Art Deco structures. So we are walking down Collins Avenue and right here around 10th Street they have some of the most beautiful Art Deco architecture ever. These retro pastel colored buildings give the city its charm and have been featured in numerous movies including Scarface The Birdcage and bad boys 2. Not to be missed are their brightly colored lifeguard towers which you’ll find throughout Miami Beach and South Beach. And of course the highlight of Miami are the beaches which are cosmopolitan and tropical. In fact the water at Miami Beach is warm enough for swimming year-round. And if you love the look of these beaches as much as we do hit the like button down below! This is the Starlight Hotel Boulevard in the Colony Miami is one of the best cities for people-watching – you never know what you’ll find. It might even be the next undiscovered musician. Now we head to downtown Miami’s Museum Park to check out the Perez Art Museum. We are going to the Perez Museum. Miami! The Perez Art museum has a collection of modern and contemporary art as well as a terrace with beautiful Hanging Gardens the museum also houses interactive art works including Venezuelan artist Jesús Rafael Soto’s “penetrable”. This kinetic art piece explores movement in space and invites visitors to walk through and essentially complete the artwork. So we just finished up at the Perez Museum behind me and right here you can see the road that takes you to South Beach and then look at all these beautiful yachts and the cruise ships are right here now we head to the nearby Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami to visit one of the most elegant old-world estates we have reached the Vizcaya museum and gardens. This is a little bit south of the downtown lush gardens. Vizcaya is a little taste of the Great Gatsby life in Miami it was built between 1914 and 1922 admission tickets $18 for adults so James Deering was the winner of this beautiful house and he lived here during the winter months. In the early 1900s and he made his money producing farming machinery these murals here and then check out the ceiling and the floor Vizcaya is noteworthy for adapting historic European aesthetics to South Florida’s subtropic region and they enclosed this part due to humidity and this museum became public in 1952. So I’m at the Vizcaya right now this is the facade of the building and then behind me you can see the ocean. My favorite part of Vizcaya are these beautiful gardens – look at these turrets and everything you see here they used local coral stone which ages very quickly and creates this really cool antique look. The estate is a total of 50 acres of which 10 acres contain Italian Renaissance formal gardens, The gardens here are one of the most picturesque spots in Miami but be sure to watch out for unexpected showers. It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring. [music] all that rain brought out some of the most unusual critters there’s crab right here on that note we’re out of here but be sure to stay tuned and subscribe because coming up next the Wynwood Walls and little Havana you don’t want to miss it!

    Analysis :China’s Aircraft Carrier: Just an Old Russian Ship That Can’t Fight?

    January 25, 2020

    Welcome to World Action and Reaction News,
    todays Artical taken from National Interest which was published with the title China’s
    Aircraft Carrier: Just an Old Russian Ship That Can’t Fight? in this artical National
    Interest has raised some points, let’s discuss China’s Aircraft Carrier: Just an Old Russian
    Ship That Can’t Fight? The Liaoning, Beijing�s first aircraft carrier,
    is a refurbished second-hand vessel. But, despite its inauguration in 2012, it appears
    the vessel�s genuine war-readiness is still in doubt.
    Party mouthpieces have all refrained from using the carrier�s former name, Varyag
    � no surprise, given that the Liaoning was a rusty, semi-scrap hull from Ukraine before
    it was given a new lease of life (and renamed after the northeastern province where the
    ship underwent a seven-year refit). The carrier has already become a new tool
    for Beijing to whip up patriotic fervour among the masses, as seen by the vessel�s visit
    to Hong Kong in July, which was part of the military fanfare to mark the 20th anniversary
    of the territory�s handover. But that same visit also enabled observers
    to have a rare up-close look at the Chinese carrier. The first thing that famed military affairs
    commentator Andrei Chang, aka Pinkov, noticed was that the Liaoning may be much lighter
    in weight than the Russian carrier Admiral Kuznetsov � a vessel of the same class � having
    analysed thousands of photos he took during the carrier�s open day.
    Liaoning has a displacement of 67,500 tonnes. But it appeared that technicians of the People�s
    Liberation Army Navy have done away with many ship-to-ship and ship-to-air missiles, as
    well as their launching pads and catapults. Liaoning�s 15,500 square-meter flight deck
    was jam-packed with jet fighters like J15s and airborne early-warning aircraft. But there
    was a conspicuous absence of advanced anti-submarine helicopters, like the much-touted Z-18F with
    surface radar, plus dipping sonar against torpedoes and missiles, as Chang found.
    This meant the Liaoning could be susceptible to attacks by submarines even if it had just
    concluded a high-profile war-game in the East China Sea prior to its Hong Kong port call. Even Japan�s 27,000 tonne quasi-carrier
    JS Izumo has a fleet of seven anti-submarine helicopters.
    After a tour inside the carrier�s hangar and other maintenance areas, Chang has become
    skeptical about the Liaoning�s genuine combat-readiness. �These places are mostly empty, and it�s
    likely that fighters and other carrier-based aircraft are maintained and repaired somewhere
    onshore. This is unimaginable in a real war scenario when a seagoing airbase cannot even
    provide basic maintenance for its planes� US carriers, on the contrary, are all capable
    [of that],� said Chang. Belching black smoke at Victoria Harbor The steam-propelled Liaoning also received
    much mockery when photos showing it belching black fumes while docking at Victoria Harbour
    went viral on social media. Indeed, the pictures triggered some protests against the Chinese
    carrier polluting Hong Kong�s air. Chang said the black smoke it emitted was
    probably due to incomplete combustion of heavy fuel with high sulphur content and the issue
    was not just a matter of image or air pollution. �The temperature of its smoke vents must
    be very high, making the carrier vulnerable to infrared detection.� It is an open secret that Beijing dangled
    bailouts and generous cheap loans to get a stack of Varyag�s design and construction
    drawings from Ukraine, which reportedly weighed some 20 tonnes and enabled the comprehensive
    rebuilding of the carrier after it changed hands via a middleman to the Chinese military.
    China-made steel, flight-deck structures and weapons systems were subsequently welded to
    the decades-old Soviet hulk to make a complete carrier. Yet it remains to be seen if new steel parts
    in different configurations installed � almost like a whole set of organ transplants � might
    lead to any complications that may compromise the Liaoning�s structural integrity and
    its combat capabilities. Chang�s initial assessment is that the Liaoning
    is more like a training and research �mock� carrier than a real, war-ready airbase on
    the sea. Ma Ding-sheng, host of a well-known military
    TV talkshow, said in a separate interview that China�s �grade-skipping� � building
    and operating full-scale carriers from scratch � meant it lacked experience in building
    such vessels, and there really are no shortcuts. Its �1980s technology is already obsolete� �You have to gain experience in steps, from
    running small to medium-sized vertical/short takeoff and landing airbases all the way to
    big carriers,� said Ma. And the Liaoning is already becoming obsolete,
    given it�s a mix of 1980s technologies, which that are dated by today�s standards. In this regard, as Ma stressed, the vessel�s
    propulsion system is a key weakness. Nuclear-powered US carriers� have an obvious upper hand
    over Beijing�s slower, steam-driven ships. �A slow-moving carrier can be a drag during
    when fighters take-off. So, their combat capacity and responsiveness, like conventionally powered
    ships, need far more frequent refueling during wartime.� My View: most of the things correct, but we
    have to consider that this is china’s first attempt and world knows, no one can create
    state of the are equipment in first attempt like HAL Tejas is our first attempt and it
    is capable to fight but it require more teeth to compete with world best fighter jets, same
    rules apply on China’s Aircraft Carrier too

    Leblon & Ipanema beach | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Travel Vlog)

    January 25, 2020

    I’m in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil And now I’m going to show you guys
    what’s the best in town I lived here for close to 10 years so I know this city pretty well Good morning! We’re coming for breakfast
    today in a place I really like It’s a park in the neighborhood of Jardim Botanico
    called Parque Lage Here you have this contact with nature and it’s
    also a really beautiful place Christ the Redeemer! This place here was a sugarcane farm
    when the Portuguese first came to Brazil in the 16th century until in the
    beginning of the 20th century this mansion was built. Yes, this was a house! It was built by the family Lage hence the name And then in the second half of the
    20th century it became the Visual Arts School The most important art school in
    Brazil, and it was also like a political and cultural center for resistance during
    the dictatorship, the military dictatorship here in Brazil Here’s the beginning of the trail to Corcovado.
    Next time! Today I’d rather go to the beach This beach here is Leblon,
    it’s my favorite! It’s a very quiet beach Normally only those who live here in the
    neighborhood come here Cariocas from other regions or also tourists prefer
    going to Ipanema or Copacabana because of the hustle and bustle!
    Today I’m going to walk all this here, from one end to the other Over there there’s a canal which is the
    exact border between Leblon, back there and Ipanema here.
    Welcome to Ipanema! Today it was really hot! It was close to 100 degrees F So we stayed the whole afternoon at the beach,
    the water was perfect! So here to finish the day we came to Arpoador It’s right at the end of Ipanema We came here for the sunset and look at how many people had the same idea In the next videos: Sugarloaf, Christ the Redeemer, Barra da Tijuca, Copacabana, Maracana and much more!

    Curonian Spit, Sandy Beaches And Dunes, Russia-Lithuania. 360 aerial video in 5K

    January 24, 2020

    The Curonian Spit is stretching along the
    coast of the Baltic Sea: lying partly in Russia, partly in Lithuania, it has the total length
    of 98 kilometres. The width varies from 400 to 3800 meters. The name of this sand-dune spit, which separates
    the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea, is is connected to the ancient tribe called Curonians
    who had been inhabiting these lands long time ago. Both sides of the Spit possess sandy beaches allowing you to swim in both the freshwaters of the lagoon and the salty Baltic Sea at your
    choice. Though the holiday season itself is rather short, you can enjoy the natural landmarks of the Spit between May and November. The border between Russia and Lithuania is
    on the 49th kilometre, if counted from Zelenogradsk (Kaliningrad region). Both countries consider the Spit to be the
    area of nature conservation with the National Park status. Curonian Spit is famous for the number of
    birds. This place is a part of the ancient migration
    route that 160 species of birds use when leaving the northern regions of Europe for warmer places. During the migration period around 1 million birds fly over the Spit and 102 species permanently have their nests there. That’s why the Curonian Spit got an unofficial
    name “the Bird’s Bridge”. In 2000 the Spit was listed as a World Natural
    Heritage Site by UNESCO for its unique relief and biodiversity.

    ABANDONED BEACH MANSION | Exploring El Partenon de NEGRO DURAZO Mexico 2018

    January 24, 2020

    Man it’s beautiful! We made it…
    I can’t believe if we finally made it. Alright a little crash course in the
    history of this place as we walk on the outside. It was owned by a guy named
    Negro Durazo. Negro means black, and it was his nickname because he was
    extremely corrupt. He was working together with one of the
    presidents who was also known to be corrupt, and when the president switched
    he got thrown in jail for almost a decade He used taxpayers money to pay for things like this… which is generally
    pretty illegal, and so he spent ten years in jail for that. This property went to
    ruin. It was built in 1979, then it was abandoned in 1984, so it was only really
    active as a his party house basically on the coast for about 5 years. So it’s been abandoned for over 30, and Cody and I are pretty excited to finally be here. – It’s been a long time coming
    – Yeah man, and it was worth the wait.
    This place is amazing. – These statues are amazing right?
    – I think it’s my favorite part of this place One two three four five some missing heads but they’re actually real carved stone… because remember when he
    went to the Acropolis in Mexico City? – Ah yeah it was all like styrofoam? and it was all styrofoam statues… This… This is not Rock This is styrofoam… or asbestos I
    don’t know which one yet… – Styrofoam it’s not rock…
    So we’re stepping on these styrofoam pillars… Great… It’s probably hard to show on
    camera, but the size of these gates is enormous. I don’t know why you would need gates this size other than to prove a point… or
    to actually keep out a horde of enemies. Hold the camera? Actually here… take
    a run back so I can show… This is me. I am 2 and a half blocks… Look how tall this is! So the location itself was inspired by the architecture you see in
    Greece. It’s called the Partenon because there’s also Parthenon in Athens, in the
    Acropolis there. So when he built this place he decided to build it
    inspired by the actual Parthenon hence the name of the location. Wow, as we walk through the main entrance
    it’s all pretty much open-air it looks directly out into the Pacific Ocean. This
    is old Zihuatanejo here it’s a very beautiful part of town. The sun sets right
    down the middle so it’s basically all open-air. This was his summer home so, he’d come here to enjoy the beautiful weather and the Sun.
    All these pillars hold up a giant beautiful roof. There’s a second floor
    actually that I think has bedrooms? But if you look… this is where there was
    dinner parties. There’s the original table a little bit crack, but beautiful green marble. The ocean air would just sweep in through the pillars. People here would be dancing, having fun, maybe playing music and enjoying themselves. This is all original, nothing’s been restored. I’m assuming this is the fountain
    originally. Right yeah? It looks like water would come out of the top. How beautiful would that be though… You’re here, you’re having dinner at the table over there fountain going people playing music, ocean air like this…
    – it’s a perfect vacation home.
    – I think so! So, for Negro Durazo’s big dinner parties, this is where the food was made. They would whisk it out on a tray. The people would be
    enjoying themselves here at the table, and watching the sunset. You can see in the roof… I’m assuming these are where the chandeliers were hanging in the past but things like that wouldn’t withstand the time, and the wind
    and the weather as well as the stone would. These are the only stairs…
    – The only stairs… super weird.
    – Have you been up to the second floor yet? – No let’s go
    – Me neither. I was waiting for you actually See… interestingly enough,
    there’s a lot of beautifully sculpted stone. Like the pillars out there… and the
    statues… and there is stuff like this which I think was done as a design choice,
    because these are chisel marks right? Look at this. This isn’t natural. It’s natural it’s in the fact that it’s not painted, but it looks like they
    they did that on purpose to make it look like it’s older than it actually was and
    this is over the entire building… this kind of like patina we would call it.
    The way the wear and tear looks all cracked and destroyed, but it’s actually made
    that way to look like it’s old. But then you have stuff like this. These kind of
    unnecessary designs. This is really beautiful and not really necessary for
    any reason other than just making it look nice All these these carved ropes in the way up Alright so second floor… There’s
    mirrors on the ceilings? There’s only generally one reason why you have
    mirrors on the ceilings… Wow actually I’m really impressed with how
    how well this this has lasted, this is all wood right? Carved wood. Wooden closets… still some cabinets… still look the mirrors are still intact. You know
    how rare it is to go to abandoned places with still with no graffiti and still
    having a lot of glass? Look at this amazing entrance to the bathroom.
    Oh! I heard a bat… yeah. Look at this! I didn’t even see this when I walked in. Yeah this looking so good for being abandoned for
    so long I walked in this room and I heard “Squeak Squeak” Oh! Hear it? Probably up in the light socket. A cute little one? – Yeah a cute little one
    – Let’s keep it as a puppet!
    – Haha a pet *Scream*
    *Laughing* Is he still cute? Yes – Centauro
    – He is right? He’s half horse. I wonder if this is his depiction
    of himself I wonder if this is Negro Durazo and he had himself painted
    as a horse. – It’s the motor there right? And the beam.
    It probably wrapped up there…
    – Oh, you’re right! Jordan was looking up inside these
    little fixtures there’s a pole, and you can see the gears and the chain. That’s
    totally what it was though. If you look inside there’s the beam,
    there’s the gears and they were for sun shades to protect from the setting
    sun. It’s a pretty simple property though, right? So there’s the upstairs which we’re assuming is these beautiful bedrooms, there’s only 4. Only one staircase and in this giant open area, which was for parties. The pool.
    I mean it’s a party home really, what more do you need? I like it. I like it alot. – It’s a mansion but it’s not super complicated.
    – No, there’s no way you get lost. It’s very open concept Except for this weird shrine thing here, over to the right… Yeah I still have yet to figure out
    what that is. Actually, I think going behind it… There’s two staircases down?
    There’s no bathroom’s I’ve seen. (from afar) It’s a discotheque.
    That’s where the DJ was? Yes because in the 80s and 70s, people used to dance on dance floors with lights… so it’s a discotheque. You can see in
    the roof… Let’s go. Let’s go explore. It should be exploring with Mariannela, she’s been all through this
    place and meanwhile we’ve been talking to cameras. So when you look out here what
    do you think? What do you see? What do you think of this place? My empire! Imagine a party here… Imagine a party here! Let’s see if we can rent it. Subscriber meet up. 2018. Kick the Grind. Abandoned mansion in Zihuatanejo
    Mexico. Be there. – Oh! A frog!
    – A Frog?
    – Or something… There is fish in there, there is fish! – Do you see them?
    – I can see them From out here you can see it is truly inspired by the Greeks. It really looks like the Parthenon out here. So why do you think this is the dance floor? Oh yeah, you can see lights. You can definitely see there were light fixtures. The dancefloor here, which should be with the crystals, you know the squares? They light up. because it was the 80s right? The 70s, 80s… You think this is where the DJ was? Or the bartenders? So there’s all these holes that were… the plumbing for the swimming pool.
    One, two, there’s a hot tub here. – Do you want to go down?
    – Can you go down? You could but it’s just water Can you film? Mike Corey… Dirty Jobs. He’s going into the sewer system Ok… There might be bats, there might be bees… Probably no snakes. Maybe the Chupacapbra – Give me the lens? – I hope the Chupacabra is down there…
    – Don’t say that! I will go down and report back!
    How’s my butt look… good? Okay. – The Chupacabra is down there
    – There’s no Chupacabra! It smells so bad It’s Mike reporting in from the very echoey sub pump for the pool it is very dark There is very black water below me, and there’s not really much else to see to tell you the truth. – Close him in!
    – Don’t close the door! I don’t want to die down here It’s just deep dark water Do you want to feel Batman? Oh I didn’t even see this! Do you want to see, ah feel, um, Batman? Do I want to Feelsbadman? Do you want to feel like Batman? Do I want to feel like Batman? Why? Go there… Go explore Okay let me take off my circular
    polarizer. Night mode. hold on. Let me take this off. Why guys? Who’s been down there already? You? You? Why? Is it really that scary? little bit freaked out
    by you don’t make the merio music not the scariest of all music wow this is
    this is horror movie stuffed in here guys no don’t joke about the curse too soon
    guys too soon whoa so this is below I didn’t even know
    there was a a basement level to the Parthenon I hear the bats I don’t see the bat and
    I this was probably for storage you’re gonna see a bunch of earth and there’s a
    hole going down even deeper that’s the thing right we can only come and we can
    only speculate because the owner is now passed away this place has been
    forgotten about for a long time now you have this basement filled bats oh man
    one two three four five six seven over twenty in the corner and this giant hole
    dug in the very middle why oh man it’s like a tunnel man you come to places
    like this and you feel the heaviness of the history the heaviness of the air
    from the humidity the squeak of bats you really feel like you’re traveling
    really feel like you’re exploring you might not know every little detail about
    the place there might not be all the information online half it we don’t even
    know if it’s true I think all of us urbex exploring type people get that
    same feeling that the old explorers must have had which is a taste of adventure
    when you don’t exactly know what you’re getting yourself into this day and age
    it’s hard to explore something it hasn’t been explored before but through
    abandoned you can have something have a taste of it at least all right sweets left the basement and
    that doorway passageway leads us back up to where the pool is sounds getting a
    little bit low the shots gonna be beautiful I put down
    the vlogging camera get something nice all right I’ve got a question would you
    party in the Parthenon tenango door ah so this particular abandoned spot lived

    Ukai Cormorant Fishing – Gifu – 長良川鵜飼 – 4K Ultra HD

    January 24, 2020

    My Name is Sugiyama Masahiko from Nagaragawa Gifu. I am following in the steps of my ancestors who have been doing this job since 1300. My job is to be an Ukai cormorant fisherman. The Ukai cormorant fishing technique is almost the same since the beginning of time. We are fishing for Ayu fish on the Nagara river from mid April until mid October in order to protect Ayu fish and the river’s overall ecosystem. Cormorant are very important for us and we take care of them all year long. Every fish we catch are sold at local ryokan and hotels. The boat we use to fish can carry three people including the fisherman, one helper and someone to steer the boat. There are no less than six fishing boats operating on the river all year long and every night during the season. Ukai is a traditional fishing method using trained cormorants to catch river fish such as Ayu also known as sweetfish. Ukai cormorant fishing has been around for over 1300 years, most prominently along the Nagaragawa River in Gifu City,
    where in the past the master fishermen have official patronage from the emperor, today however all Ayu catch are sold to surrounding hotels and ryokan. Ukai cormorant fishing includes one master fisherman, one helper and one person to steer the boat as well as around 12 cormorant birds swimming alongside the boat are catching fish attracted by the boat light. The catch are kept in a special pouch in the cormorant’s throat and retrieved later. To prevent cormorant from swallowing their large catch fisherman put a snare around the neck of the bird while still allowing the cormorant eat smaller fish. Despite some common misunderstanding, cormorant are extremely well treated and valuable to fishermen, no arm to the cormorant is done at any time.

    Located near Hamada City in Shimane, the Tatamigaura Rock-Flats Beach, also known as Iwami Tatamigaura Beach is a scenic area that was created around 16 million years ago when the seafloor was raised by a powerful earthquake. This beach is also known as Senjojiki or “thousand mats” in Japanese for its size of five hectares and a series of nodule sandstones, fossilized animals and shells.
