Urban Exploration #4Climbing The Shard
Last year, Urban Exploration was thrown into the spotlight when images of a student who evaded security at 'The Shard' in London started to circulate - he'd shimmied up to the top of the tallest building in Europe... Behind this particular stunt was The London Consolidation Crew - they like to climb buildings after dark. And why not? The views can be incredible. It once again highlights how Urban Exploration isn't 'making a nuisance of yourself' as so many think, but rather, showing the world what they are missing out on. Photography is just a small part of Urban Exploration but the advancement of digital media is a huge asset. You can read more about The Shard stunt here.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and why it mattersMany of you might have seen your friends dump buckets of ice on themselves in the past few weeks, for what is called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Many of you probably wondered what on earth ALS is, and perhaps assumed it was some sorority thing, or maybe just another silly challenge like the cinammon challenge. But no, this is something very different than what many of us might have thought at first.More Like This
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis:
Often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. You will

* October 9th, 1940
† December 8th, 1980
As founding member of The Beatles, he, Paul, George & Ringo wrote history. The 'mopheads' from Liverpool, UK, set out to conquer and change the world. Up until their break-up in 1970 John Lennon and Paul McCartney became one of the most successful songwriter couples in history.
After The Beatles, he continued his solor career and wrote his signature song "Imagine" – the dream of a better world. He spent his last years in the USA, moving between New York and Los Angeles.
On December 8th, 1980, he was shot in front of his New York apartment.
Let's take a moment to remember John Lennon, who he was and what he did, and enjoy the art created to honour him.
Celebrating Diversity #26The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to post an article with deviations not from my area of expertise (Artisan Crafts) but from other Galleries that I almost never visit.

NEW WATCH DISCUSSIONMore Like This
Last fall we introduced a new page in DeviantArt's primary navigation called Watch. Watch, which has been in beta since launch, aggregates activity from the deviants and groups you watch (aka follow). There’s no doubting the convenience of visiting your Notifications to view the latest deviation submissions and other updates (like journals, critiques, and polls) from the deviants you watch, but it’s not a great way to view and engage with art. That’s why we’re continuing to explore new ways to improve a standalone Watch experience.

Hello Lovely people,
Today, I stumbled upon several journals by members who all got scammed by one person. Pixlett / ToxicMutagen (who deactivated their accounts today) scammed more than 3,000 USD from more than 20 artists by filling chargebacks just after a while from paying for adopts or commissions. And apparently, they can do the same with points too.

Watch RecommendationsMore Like This
A few months ago, we released Watch Recommendations to new deviants -- a feature that suggests deviants to watch for those who have just joined DeviantArt. The aim being to match new deviants with active deviants -- ones who represent the depth and breadth of all DeviantArt.com has to offer.
Starting today, we’re adding deviant recommendations to your watch.
The new Watch Recommendations will display occasionally in your watch, suggesting deviants you might be interested in following. Deviants who appear as recommendations include people who have proven to be friendly and engaging in the community, as well as deviants who have reached a standard of artistic excellence.
If you find a deviant that you’re not interested in, simply click the “x” button and you won’t see that deviant again.
