Jorge Marin is a Mexican plastic artist born in Uruapan, Michoacan in 1963. He is one of Mexico’s most important representatives of figurative contemporary art and one of the finest artist worldwide. Youngest of 10 siblings, which include Javier Marin, also an international renowned sculptor, Jorge moved to México City at age seven and continued his studies and career in this metropolis.

For the last twenty five years, Jorge Marin has developed a solid career, holding over 250 solo and collective exhibitions in Mexico, the United States, Canada, several countries in South and Central America, China, Singapore, Turkey, Russia, Denmark, Roumania and many others in Europe. His work, ranging from miniature to monumental, exhibited indoors and outdoors, seizing public space, generates an unprecedented dialogue between his artwork and the spectator. One of the most important works is the vigilante, a 25 ton. bronze sculpture located in Estado de México.

Jorge creates a metaphor of the human existence. He truly explores the possibilities of heaviness and lightness of each body and the perfect visual balance between them. The bronze sculpture are full of movement, pushing and defying gravity, triggering a highly emotional perception of his work, which expresses the inner being of mankind and the dreams that only with a pair of wings we can dare to dream.

The creations of Jorge Marín follow this command [the word angel is derived from the Greek word for messenger,] which in his case is not divine, but "human, all too human."

-Carlos Fuentes


A few weeks ago, three marine turtles were released in the Caribbean Sea, after they were saved and medically treated at Xcaret Park hospital. The three turtles were released into the waters, with an attached satellite tracking device, so they can be monitored and followed in order to support scientific information on the vulnerabilities of the species and their habitats.

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line has developed the SeaSeeker dive mask, designed to let you record underwater footage and share it in Snapchat, the disappearing photo and video app particularly popular with young users.

The cruise line, already created prototypes of the mask, which accommodates a pair of the Snapchat Spectacles, released previously by the social media company, in what we have to assume is a watertight compartment in the front. Although the company itself has provided little in the way of technical details, some reports have stated that the mask is watertight down to 150 ft (46 m) and allows for the shooting of up to 30 minutes of footage. If it's typical Snapchat video, though, it will be parcelled up into 10-second blocks.

Royal Caribbean has given the mask to three well-known divers, one of them is Roberto Ochoa, who is testing the device in the pristine waters of Cozumel, Ashleigh Baird diving cenotes in Quintana Roo and conservationist Gaby Nava diving in Puerto Morelos. There are plans to patent the technology, so it can be made available exclusively to guests on the company’s cruises.


People might think that the term is used to describe this lazy days, so devastatingly hot that even dogs would lie around. However, the phrase actually had nothing to do with dogs, originally. Instead, it turns out that it makes reference to the dog star, Sirius, and its position in the heavens.

To the Greeks and Romans, the “dog days” occurred around the day when Sirius appeared to rise just before the sun during the summer. They referred to these days as the hottest time of the year. Still, the dog days of ancient Greece aren’t the dog days of today and not just everywhere. Although July and August are generally known as the hottest months of the year in the northern Hemisphere, the hottest period can vary from year to year. And depending on your latitude, the astronomical dog days can come at different times.
