Liquid Metal that is Safe to Touch...and Play with - Gallium



Music: "Flying Dream" by Dhruva Aliman ...Gallium is a chemical element with symbol Ga and atomic number 31. It is in group 13 of the periodic table, and thus has similarities to the other metals of the group, aluminium, indium, and thallium. Gallium does not occur as a free element in nature, but as gallium(III) compounds in trace amounts in zinc ores and in bauxite. Elemental gallium is a soft, silvery blue metal at standard temperature and pressure, a brittle solid at low temperatures, and a liquid at temperatures greater than 29.76 °C (85.57 °F) (slightly above room temperature). The melting point of gallium is used as a temperature reference point. The alloy galinstan (68.5% gallium, 21.5% indium, and 10% tin) has an even lower melting point of −19 °C (−2 °F), well below the freezing point of water. Since its discovery in 1875, gallium has been used to make alloys with low melting points. It is also used in semiconductors as a dopant in semiconductor substrates. Gallium is predominantly used in electronics. Gallium arsenide, the primary chemical compound of gallium in electronics, is used in microwave circuits, high-speed switching circuits, and infrared circuits. Semiconductive gallium nitride and indium gallium nitride produce blue and violet light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and diode lasers. Gallium is also used in the production of artificial gadolinium gallium garnet for jewelry. Gallium has no known natural role in biology.

Vaginal Weightlifting Empowers Women

Kim Anami is an instructor in a physical activity she calls "vaginal kung fu." As such, she travels around the world promoting the benefits that come when a woman lifts weights with her sex organ. @kimanami - "I would say that having a vaginal weight lifting practice gives me and anyone who practices it the best sex of their lives," Anami told Barcroft TV. There are health benefits beyond good sex, she said, including reduced incontinence, and preventing pelvic organ prolapse after childbirth. “The practice creates an overall lift in the body -- even a face lift," she said. "I have had clients stop using Botox because they took up vaginal weightlifting.” Anami squeezes every single bit of publicity out of "vaginal kung fu" by posting Instagram photos of herself lifting various objects with the help of an egg-shaped piece of jade in her vagina just by contracting her muscles. But while Anami is definitely a proselytizer for the benefits of strong female sex organs, she also admits with great power comes great responsibility.

Amazing Classical Paintings In Motion - "Beauty" by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro

This video is the Short Version. Animator and filmmaker Rino Stefano Tagliafierro has always found the intensity of the emotions he encounters through classical paintings unmatched by other art forms. And when he sat down to craft his latest short film, Beauty, he sought to convey the emotional impact of that artwork on him to an audience who might not be otherwise moved. "The idea of Beauty is born from the desire to (convey) the main emotions that every person encounters throughout his life path," says Tagliafierro. "Classical art has always attracted my most intense emotions, so I decided to (let it) represent them." Music: Kaddish (Instrumental Version) by Dhruva Aliman
