Aviral Pokhrel: The Boy Who Can “See” Using Touch and Smell

Twelve-year-old Aviral Pokhrel of Nepal has an unusual ability. He can see colors and objects through his senses of touch and smell. I try to feel using my hands, and if I’m unable to identify things clearly with my hands, then I try to smell them. And based on their smell, I can tell what they are. Sometimes it just comes to me, then based on that I say what it is and it matches, too. And when we practice even more and more deeply, and go even deeper, we may be able to just hold a book in our hands, just shake it to even figure out what’s there on which page number of the book.

John Hutton and the Art of Glass Engraving

Engraved glass is a style of decorated glass that has been around since the 1st Century AD. One of the biggest challenges in engraving is to create lifelike representations of a person’s face, because different reflections in the glass obscures the image, as the viewer moves and the lighting changes. That has not stopped many talented artists from engraving depictions of humans and our animal-people friends in objects such as drinking glasses, goblets, plates, and windows. The New-Zealand-born artist John Hutton is a highly acclaimed Glass Engraving Artist of modern times and created a unique

In fact, it’s estimated that Earth’s soil contains three times more carbon than the atmosphere.Conventional farming, with its constant tilling of the land and heavy reliance on chemicals, breaks down organic matter in the soil and releases much of the stored carbon, thus contributing to climate change.
