World War II altered the political alignment and social structure of the world. The United Nations was established to foster international cooperation and prevent future conflicts. This footage gives us just a brief insight as to what life was like for some European cities defending themselves. Pictured above is two Canadian soldiers with a captured Nazi flag in Normandy, France.
“We take our sport seriously and we want to be at that elite level,” says Makuakai Rothman about the world’s perception of surfers. We’re not beach bums. We train. We want to win. And this year Makuakia Rothman wanted to win the WSL’s Big Wave Tour. And while it was as slow year for the tour, with only two events running, it made each competition that much more important. Makuakai seized each moment. Congratulations to the new Big Wave World Champion!
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and upcoming title challenger Anthony Johnson went forehead to forehead before shoving ensued.

Sweeney first pulled the shirtless act back in the Wolves’ heyday in 2003-04, riling up the crowd at a few games, including one in the playoffs against Denver. A Star Tribune writer dubbed him “Jiggly Boy,” and it stuck. Does he mind that name? “I’m fine with that name,” Sweeney said. “I’m the youngest of 8 from a Irish Catholic farm family, so I’ve been called a lot worse.” He was in cahoots 11 years ago with the Wolves’ game ops folks, and he said they texted him again a few days ago with a simple question: “KG is coming back. What about Jiggly?”
“The scariest moment of my life. While doing stage five of my Accelerated Free Fall program I have a near death experience. At around 9000ft I have a seizure while attempting a left hand turn. I then spend the next 30 seconds in free fall unconscious. Thankfully my jumpmaster manages to pull my ripcord at around 4000ft. I become conscious at 3000ft and land safely back to the ground.” – Nomadic Adrenaline.
After blowing our socks off with District 9, then making a slightly more conventional sci-fi tentpole with Elysium, Neill Blomkamp is getting back to his quirky genre roots. Dubbed “Real Gangsters,” this clip is focused on Chappie as he tries to be one of the guys and learn how to live the robo-thug life. The criminals seem to be prepping Chappie to assist in an upcoming heist, and the impressionable little ‘bot seems to at least have the skills for the job.
Based on the cars alone, the 24th James Bond film, Spectre, is set to be one of the biggest and most impressive in the long-lived franchise.

Dance battle in Chicago to raise awareness about heart disease, sponsored by UDEF. I thought this was supposed to be a dance battle, all I saw was a wild gymnastics showdown. I used to wiggle around on the floor like that when I was a hyperactive child. Still do sometimes when my mother doesn’t cook me dinner.
