A hardy team of scientists in Venezuela is determined to transcend the political and economic turmoil to record what happens as the country's last glacier vanishes. Temperatures are warming faster at the Earth's higher elevations than in lowlands, and scientists predict that the Humboldt glacier - an ice sheet in the Andes Mountains - could be gone within two decades. 'If we left and came back in 20 years, we would have missed it,' says Luis Daniel Llambí, a mountain ecologist at the University of the Andes in Mérida. Scientists say Venezuela will be the first country in South America to lose all its glaciers and the researchers have been facing the most adverse of conditions. Horror stories of their beseached research ying to carry out their studies include refrigerator blackouts destroying lab samples, gas shortages forcing them to work from home and even having to reuse paper due to short supply. more videos 1 2 3 Watch video Air … [Read more...] about Intrepid scientists defy blackouts and gas shortages amid Venezuela’s economic chaos to chart what happens as the country’s last glacier vanishes

Hugo Taylor has revealed he smoked 'weed' to try and deal with the pressures of his newfound fame after first joining the cast of Made in Chelsea. The reality star, 33, from London, also told how his fame came so quickly that he found it to be a 'mind altering' experience - and left him feeling introverted for about six months. Speaking on InsideOut, a mental health podcast narrated by Laura Stembridge, the TV personality, who is married to Millie Mackintosh, said instead of feeling famous, he was constantly battling his insecurities and 'smoking so much weed to try and cope with it.' He also admitted that his mental health started to decline when he was working as the manager of London Celebrity nightclub Chinawhite 10 years ago.

With this 3D family-friendly, kid-oriented fantasy film, Martin Scorsese has executed one of his periodic 180-degree about turns: comparable to his 19th-century costume drama The Age of Innocence, or Kundun, his encomium to the Dalai Lama. In Hugo, nobody gets called a "fuckin' mook", no one's head gets crushed in a vice, no one's body gets buried in the desert outside Las Vegas. Instead, Scorsese has gone all Harry Potter-ish on us, creating an intricately designed and beautifully rendered story aimed squarely at that fabled (and commercially invaluable) point at which childlike fantasy intersects with adult yearning. The vehicle for all this is the old-young figure of Hugo (Asa Butterfield), a lonely 12-year-old who ekes out an existence – like a junior Quasimodo – pattering around the roof spaces and drainage ducts of a large Parisian railway terminus in the interwar years. Parentless and abandoned, Hugo spends his days winding the station clocks, filching breakfast from … [Read more...] about Hugo – review
