Yet, Josh is both a presence and absence in the author's life that will not remain unclaimed. Told in kaleidoscopic shards of memories assembled from interviews with Josh's friends and family and the raw material of the Josh's own journals, a revealing, startling portrait unfolds

The animal, named Romeo by staff, is thought to have entered the 288m (945ft) Shard building at London Bridge through the central stairwell.據信羅密歐是從中央樓梯井攻頂。


Fox found on 72nd floor of UK’s highest skyscraper

A fox dubbed Romeo has been found living on the 72nd floor of Europe's tallest skyscraper surviving off scraps of food left by construction workers.


Barrie Hargrove, cabinet member for transport, environment and recycling at Southwark Council, said: "Romeo has certainly been on a bit of a jaunt and proved rather elusive.
"But I'm glad our pest control officers were able to help out.
"He's obviously a resourceful little chap, but I'm sure he's glad the adventure is over and hopefully he'll steer well clear of skyscrapers in the future."

And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.

LIQUID SHARD


by: Patrick Shearn of Poetic Kinetics


Liquid Shard dazzled downtown Los Angeles as a surprise to the city from July 28th to August 11th 2016. This large-scale, kinetic sculpture made of holographic mylar and monofilament was installed across Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles. The piece spans 15,000 sq ft. and is comprised of two layers that rise from 15 feet off the ground to 115 feet in the air.
