The transformation of a street in Detroit from 2008 - 2018
This time lapse photo shows how a street in Detroit changes over the period since the 2008 financial crisis until today. The city has gone through a major economic and demographic decline in recent decades. The population has fallen from 1,850,000 in 1950 to 680,000 in 2015. Local crime rates are among the highest in the United States and vast areas of the city are in a state of severe urban decay. In 2013, Detroit filed the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history. Poverty, crime, shootings, drugs and urban blight in Detroit are ongoing problems.
The vast majority of this population loss was due to the deindustrialization of Detroit that moved factories to the suburbs.
Many people often cite political corruption as a major reason for Detroit's decline. While Detroit's city government is undeniably rife with corruption, it is almost certainly not any more corrupt than the governments of other major cities such as New York, Chicago, or San Francisco that fared far better economically from 1970–2010.
As foreign imports (mostly from Japan) captured an increasingly large part of the market, American cars were less and less able to compete. US companies were unable or unwilling to adapt to the changing markets and increased competition.
Detroit's decline began mainly because structural changes in the auto industry led to the steady loss of manufacturing jobs over several decades. Other contributing factors include longstanding racial tensions leading to crime and public safety issues, increasing burdens placed on businesses as the city tried to maintain its shrinking tax base, the business practices of the Big 3 auto companies, and poor urban planning.
In many ways, Detroit represents the perfect storm of what happened to a lot of cities that had been built on an industrial base which fled overseas, coupled with the flight of folks to suburban areas ringing the cities. It's case is unique in severity, but not in kind.
Upcycling is the solution to a new life for many objects, here are 30 examples
We have all heard the word recycling, but how many of you have heard of upcycling?
This concept was the title of a book written in German by Gunter Pauli in 1996, being the free translation of the word upsizing (the opposite of downsizing). The German edition was adapted for the German language and culture by Johannes F. Hartkemeyer, then director of the Volkshochschule in Osnabruck. This concept was later incorporated by William McDonough and Michael Braungart in their 2002 book Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things. They claim that the goal of upcycling is to prevent the waste of potentially useful materials by using existing ones. This reduces the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products. Reducing the use of new raw materials can result in a decrease in energy consumption, a reduction in air and water pollution, and even a reduction in fuel emissions.
Upcycling is the opposite of downcycling, which is part of the recycling process. Downcycling involves the conversion of some materials and products into others of lower quality. Most recycling processes involve this very conversion. For example, during plastic recycling, several different types of plastic are mixed, resulting in a hybrid material that has inferior qualities and structural defects.
In developing countries, where raw materials are often expensive, upcycling is practiced quite often to save money and resources.

Art means transformation, and this man transforms into everything he sees around him
Art means transformation, and this man transforms into everything he sees around him, that is, what creation means. A cat reminds us of Batman. And many other characters create different portraits in our imagination. This is how new characters are created with the help of an artist's make-up and vision.
Watch out this transformation!

Natural hair color does not always satisfy women, so it often changes it. Also, gray hair appears in the hairstyle with age and it is possible to hide the treacherous white strands only with chemical compounds. A professional craftsman can radically change your look or easily adjust it with fashionable shades. However, the curls will constantly grow back, and you will need to refresh them from time to time.
Jack Martin is the colorist who encourages women to love the gray color of their hair. The transformations he makes are exceptional, for this reason Bemorepanda has collected his most beautiful creations.
And Martin told Insider that the coronavirus lockdown has "absolutely" led to even more women around the world deciding to go gray naturally.
"Now, many women have about four to five inches of a new regrowth so they've started to see how beautiful their gray is naturally," he said.
