The Anatomy of a Sneaker
The anatomy of a sneaker is really complex, as explained in this TED ED video. Australians call them "runners." The British know them as "trainers." Americans refer to them as "sneakers."

Check out what this means and what you can do. https://countdown.ted.com/https://www.ted.com/talks/angel_chang_the_wildly_complex_anatomy_of_a_sneaker?

The Forgotten Ballroom Exhibition
Australian Artist Patricia Piccinini’s exhibition in the Flinders Street Station’s forgotten Ballroom is the first there in decade. Piccinini works in a variety of media, including painting, video, sound, installation, digital prints, and sculpture. She is an artist who explores the frontiers of science and technology through her extradinary works. She explores "unexpected consequences", conveying concerns surrounding bio-ethics to help visualize future dystopias. She challenges our relationship to nature valorising things like trees, animals and small acts of kindness we may usually overlook. An amazing exhibition to see once Melbourne is out of lockdown. https://www.patriciapiccinini.net
