2 Dramatic Captures on Film of Recent Avalanche on Everest Base Camp 25.04.2015

The recent earthquake in Nepal triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest killing at least 17 people at Base Camp. Dozens of teams were training and acclimatizing themselves to higher altitudes as they prepared to make summit attempts in the next few weeks, when the avalanche hit. 

A German photographer captured the moment the avalanche came down on a group of people. "The ground is shaking," a climber calls out. The others laugh in response. Seconds later the group of men start running as they see a massive cloud of snow coming towards them. With no time left to spare, the men went behind a yellow tent in an attempt to take cover. Seconds later, the climbers are buried and are heard gasping for air...

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Patents (HBO)

We learn something new all the time with John Oliver. In his latest vid, he talks about something we've never heard of before - 'Patent trolls'.

100 Guitars Falling Slowly

No, it's not a hundred guitars falling from the sky or anything like that but it was still just as awesome to watch. Organizers were expecting around 100 musicians but almost 1,000 guitar players, young and old alike and skill levels of varying degrees, got together in downtown Toronto on Thursday as part of a promotional event for the musical "Once" at the Ed Mirvish Theatre for the "100 Guitars Falling Slowly" event - and it was beautiful. Everyone was in sync!...

The participants were given the chords and lyrics to the song "Falling Slowly" prior to the event. The folk-rock tune is an Academy Award-winning song that is featured in the 2007 movie that was later adapted for the stage.
"Once" cast member Ian Lake said he was surprised by how good the song sounded when it was played by nearly 1,000 people at the same time. - toronto.ctvnews
