Copy of the day. Sport Doesn't Care Manifesto - Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games

Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games.
We've all got problems.
The early morning wake-up call. 
The strict diet. The weight session.
The new gear, the new coach, the new routine.
The wind from the east or the west, or the rain from the sky.
A bad day. A bad week. 
The fear of a first time.
But mostly, the fear of the last place. Or even the second.
We've all got problems.
Sport Doesn't Care.

via adfreak

Read the description for more info!

SOS MAYDAY:( låner folk bort jakka si når de ser et barn som fryser? En test utført av SOS-barnebyer bekrefter at det er mye hjertevarme blant folk i Norge. Nå håper vi at engasjementet også når fram til barn i Syria. Les mer om hvordan du kan bidra her:

Would you like to donate a jacket to SOSBarnebyer? Send SOS to +47 2160 ($15) 

SOS-barnebyer i Syria deler ut tusenvis av varme jakker og pledd til barn på flukt, og samtidig mobiliseres givere i Norge for å kunne hjelpe flere barn gjennom givernettverket SOS MAYDAY. 

SOS MAYDAY: er et aksjonsnettverk i regi av SOS-barnebyer som bistår barn i akutte kriser. Som medlem i aksjonsnettverket kan du raskt gi din støtte via mobilen eller kort. Beløpet varierer fra aksjon til aksjon, og du velger selv om du vil støtte. Aksjonene du gir til er konkrete og aksjonsmålet skal nås på kort tid. I løpet av aksjonsperioden vil du motta oppdateringer på hva pengene dine har bidratt til via sms. Ved å bli med i vårt aksjonsnettverk takker du samtidig ja til å motta fremtidige akutte aksjoner via SMS.

ENGLISH: What would you do if you saw a freezing child?
We set up a hidden camera and placed Johannes at a bus stop, in Oslo, Norway. This is what happened.

The film is made to raise awareness of the sitation for children in Syria, and to raise funds to SOS Children's Villages is their winter-campaign. Children in Syria are freezing - send an sms and donate a jacket.

Office of the day. The Barbarian Group - Introducing the Superdesk.

Introducing the Superdesk from The Barbarian Group on Vimeo.
"At The Barbarian Group, we believe in the power of ideas to provoke a reaction.  So when challenged with our own brief - to keep the Barbarian tribe happy and inspired everyday - we turned to Clive Wilkinson, an architect who shares our passion for interesting ideas in a world pre-disposed to boring sameness.
The challenge was to create the most collaborative, creative environment possible.  The result?  A desk that we could all share, literally - 4,400 square feet of undulating, unbroken awesomeness to keep people and ideas flowing."
