    Throughout parts of the world, people desperate for work perform one of the world’s most dangerous jobs- ship breaking

    Ship breaking is a type of ship disposal involving the breaking up of ships for either a source of parts or for the extraction of materials. Modern ships have a lifespan of 25 to 30 years before corrosion, metal fatigue and a lack of parts render them uneconomical to run. Ship breaking allows the materials from the ship, especially steel, to be recycled and made into new products. This lowers the demand for mined iron ore and reduces energy use in the steelmaking process.

    In 2012, roughly 1,250 ocean ships were broken down. India, Bangladesh, China and Pakistan have the highest market share and are global centres of ship breaking.

     In Bangladesh, the recycled steel covers 20% of the country's needs and in India it's almost 10%.

    [–] "Sir, the puppets are approaching!" savvyfuck 41 points ago in evilbuildings

    Royal de Luxe is a French mechanical marionette street theatre company. They were founded in 1979 and have since performed all over the world, gaining global recognition.

    The Royal de Luxe company uses giant puppets for its functions. These functions must be performed in the street because of the size, which can reach 15 meters in height .

    In 1989, they received a call from the mayor of the French city of Nantes, offering them financing and an abandoned warehouse on the banks of the Loire River. It is here that the magic of Jean-Luc Courcoult could evolve into something truly colossal.

    Each giant , made of flexible poplar wood, is controlled by a system of pulleys and hydraulic levers by 20 to 40 members of the company , called Lilliputians. These giant puppets are not like any puppet, they care for the smallest details, such as the movement of the eyes, or the movement of the chest when breathing .

    The "how it's made" of Royal de Luxe is something that is kept secret . Courcoult rarely grants interviews or visits to the studio, preferring to keep the mystery of his company's magic.
