But fortunately, for several years now, the city has kept pianos around town for passersby to play. In this clip, Ryan sits down at the one in Churchill Square.

He says he’s never taken lessons, he just feels it and plays…

This Man’s Life Was Saved When His Nurses Sneaked His Dog to Him in the Hospital

Oct 25, 2014 By Megan Berman 0

Pets can often feel like a beloved member of the family: we count on their unconditional love and companionship, and in turn, they count on ours.

And for one man in Kentucky, this was especially true recently. 73-year-old James Wathen was so sick and weak that he couldn’t eat, or even speak above a whisper. James told his nurses how much he missed his dog, Bubba, and sensing that it might be their final goodbye, the care team conspired to reunite the best friends.

The only problem? The hospital didn’t allow for the admission of pets. Undeterred, James’ nurses worked in secret with the shelter Bubba had been taken to when James was admitted, and managed to sneak the little pup into the hospital…

Apparently, Bubba had also been doing poorly since he was separated from his best friend. According to the President of the shelter Bubba had been living in, he showed the same symptoms as James

The dog quit eating a week ago, which is very strange. The dog didn’t know where James was and James didn’t know where the dog was and believe it or not, they both stopped eating at about the same time.

Since the reunion, both James and his best friend have made a complete turnaround. And Bubba now has carte blanche to visit James in the hospital whenever he wants.

If you’ve only ever seen marble on a countertop or the column of a government building, it may surprise you to see how it’s quarried from the ground. It doesn’t even look like the beautiful stone needs to be polished before it’s brought into your kitchen.

This video is an excerpt from the documentary Il Capo, or The Chief, a film by Italian artist and filmmaker Yuri Ancarani that follows a quarry boss guiding his employees through the process of extracting the marble. The work is done using a silent language, with simple gestures and signs communicating what needs to be done.
