An adorably chubby tabby cat looked up when he heard his human call his name, showing a spark of interest when she bounced a ping-pong ball towards his direction for him to chase. Midway through his retrieval process however, the lazy tabby decided that he would rather play dead instead.
A euphoric Asian black bear named Tuffy gleefully splashed around in his pool with reckless abandon, as if he was slowly realizing that he was finally free. Tuffy, just like the bear cub with a white Batman logo, had been rescued by AnimalsAsia from a bear bile trafficker in Vietnam, which would have meant certain death while trapped in a cage.
Coming from years of little or no water, for Tuffy this must feel like a true oasis after being parched and in pain for so long. It must have felt like such a relief to have the freedom to splash around in the water after only being able to stand on the hard metal bars of the bile farm cage. In fact Tuffy loved being outdoors so much he decided not to return to his den in the evening – choosing instead to sleep under the stars.

Photographer and filmmaker Chris Burkard sat down with Great Big Story to talk about his love for the art, how started specializing in surfing photos and films, his passion for the unknown. He also of the challenges he faced while while trying to film a surfer under the Aurora Borealis in Iceland during the winter for his film “Under an Arctic Sky“.
We’re sitting in the boat we’re looking at this wave. It was everything we had hoped for. The captain came out and said that the largest storm at 25 years is coming right now and we literally had to turn and hightail out of their back to the harbor. The weather changed like that and it was like Armageddon people were just like getting food storage and stocking up. All the flights were grounded, so we made this decision that we’re gonna drive 11 hours to the next safe town so we don’t come home empty-handed.
The trailer for the hard won “Under an Arctic Sky”
Artist Laura Moriarty has created absolutely gorgeous, geologically-inspired sculptures which closely resemble volcanic geodes cut in half. The sculptures are built out of richly pigmented molten beeswax which is heated, cooled and reheated to form a weathered exterior along with an interior containing beautiful swirled layers of color and pattern.
Taking poetic license with geology, I compare processes of the studio with processes of the earth. Layers of color form the strata of a methodology in which the immediacy of the hand can translate a sense of deep time. Working and reworking molten, richly pigmented beeswax, I build each painting/object through a slow, simple yet strenuous physical engagement, which often becomes a metaphor for the ephemerality of life and civilization.
A Stratigraphic Fiction presents a constellation of sculptures, photographs, films, and works on paper from 1970 to the present, all keyed to the underlying hum of recent discussions surrounding the theory of the Anthropocene—the newly coined term for the most recent epoch in geologic time.

Charlie the Beagle, who’s known for his taking care of his human sister Laura Olivia, found that the tables had turned after he cut his foot on a frozen blade of grass. Dressed in a lab coat, Laura attended to her patient with great care, making sure that Charlie was all fixed up and comfortable.
Frozen grass is not friendly for beagle paws, Charlie hurt his paw and now he limps.
There is no need to worry because Charlie has the best care in the world and the wound is just a scratch.
Charlie and Laura have a very special bond that has been fostered since the day Laura was born.
When our baby was born, we noticed his special bond with our daughter from early on, and we began filming our canine companion as he helped us care for her. Charlie the dog was introduced to baby Laura the moment she came home. We taught him how to help change her diapers, swing her baby crib, changes the traffic lights when we cross the street and play gently with her. But the one thing we never had to teach him is how to love our daughter.
