Speech at the Berlin War Cemetery: Canadian Chief of Defence Staff - General Walter Natynczyk, addresses Canadian High School students to end the Victory in Europe Tour 2010, in Germany on May 9th.
German Soldiers lay wreaths as part of a ceremony to commemorate Canadian and German soldiers who fought from 1939 - 1945 during World War Two. Students placed flags and wreathes and observed a minute of silence.
This ceremony marked the end of a European Battlefield Tour, from Paris to Berlin. It was the first ever ceremony in this Berlin Cemetery with Canadians.
Part of a documentary following students from Bear Creek Secondary School in Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
Filmed and edited by Jonathan Wagner.
The SOA4All project (http://www.soa4all.eu/) just released a video illustrating its approach and final results. This video describes the current trends in the Future Internet of services and the Web of Data. The SOA4All project considers resources to be services usable via the Service Web. In order to address the current limitations of service computing at Web scale and to lower the entry barrier for the average Web service workers, SOA4All combines Web principles, Web 2.0 technology, context management and semantics into a novel service delivery platform. The applicability of such a platform is manifold, and industrial partners such as SAP, BT and TIE have already demonstrated the benefits of SOA4All technology in the Public Sector, Telecommunications and eCommerce.
This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.
Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.
The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.
A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.
Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.
