Travis Scott shared a snap of daughter Stormi looking adorable in her Gucci gear. It was one of his first posts since he returned to social media following the Astroworld tragedy.

She’s ready for the runway! Stormi Webster looked adorable rocking a stylish Gucci coat in a snap shared by her father Travis Scott. Taking to his Instagram Story on the very first day of 2022, the “Escape Plan” rapper posted the too-cute pic (below) of his 3-year-old baby girl he shares with Kylie Jenner, who is pregnant with their second child and due any day. In the photo, Stormi is smiling as she donned a maroon visor and black leather boots to complete her super chic ensemble!

Stormi is certainly ready for her close-up, as the post comes hours after she crashed her grandmother Kris Jenner’s virtual interview for The CNN countdown to New Year’s Eve show hosted by Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper. As soon as Kris was asked about her daughter Kim Kardashian’s budding romance with Pete Davidson, Stormi barged in, sat on Kris’ lap, delighted the audience with her cute expressions and allowed the matriarch to dodge the question temporarily. What timing, Stormi!

Meanwhile, Travis’ post was one of his first since he returned to social media after he took an extended absence following the tragedy at his Astroworld festival, which occurred in Texas on November 5, 2021 and resulted in 10 casualties and 100’s of injuries of fans who got crushed by a crowd surge. The first share since his radio silence came on New Year’s Eve with a black and white profile pic of the entertainer and the caption, “Always,” with a heart emoji.

On the same day, Kylie also returned to her favorite platform following an extended absence. Other than a sweet throwback Christmas snap of her mom on Dec. 24, the makeup mogul had not posted since the tragedy. With her return, Kyle shared a profile photo showing off her growing baby bump. She captioned it, “As 2022 is approaching i’ve been reflecting on this last year and the blessings that it brought but also the many heartaches it held. i will never forget this year and all the significant changes it made to my life. I pray this new year is filled with a lot of love for all of you and i hope everyone stays safe and healthy during this time.”

SpaceWalk: A Spectacular Rollercoaster-Esque Staircase Loops Through a South Korean Park

Towering 70-meters above ground at its highest point, “SpaceWalk” is the latest undulating sculpture by Hamburg-based artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth. The monumental staircase winds in loops and elevations similar to that of a rollercoaster throughout Hwanho Park in Pohang, South Korea, and is almost entirely accessible for pedestrians except for the innermost circuit. It’s the largest contemporary public sculpture ever installed in the country.

A follow-up to the pair’s 2011 project “Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain” in Duisburg, Germany, “SpaceWalk” is built of galvanized and stainless steels atop a cement foundation and embedded rows of LED lights. “At night in particular, the brightly-illuminated walkway appears like a sigil drawn in the sky, appearing to represent different things depending on where one is standing,” Mutter and Genth say. “Thus, the sculpture also references local mythology and a tradition of sky-gazing and also makes playful use of relativity.”

Pedestrians enter the work at a central staircase, which breaks into two paths: one gently sloped walkway leads to a view of Yeongil Bay and the surrounding city, while the other is a steeper climb through a helix. Both are designed to mimic an otherworldly experience. “The title ‘SpaceWalk’ is taken from the terminology of outer space missions. It describes the act of exiting the space vehicle in the weightlessness of outer space. More literally, ‘SpaceWalk’ can be understood to mean ‘a walk through space,'” they say.

Archeologists Unearth a Roman Glass Bowl Dating Back 2,000 Years in Pristine Condition

January 27, 2022

Sitting a few miles from the German border, Nijmegen is the oldest city in The Netherlands, and after a recent archeological dig, it’s also the site that unearthed a stunningly preserved bowl made of blue glass. The pristine finding, which is estimated to be about 2,000 years old, is from the agricultural Bataven settlement that once populated the region. Featuring diagonal ridges, the translucent vessel was made by pouring molten glass into a mold, sculpting the stripes while the material was liquid, and using metal oxide to produce the vibrant blue. Archeologists uncovered it without a single chip or crack.

Around the time the bowl was procured, Nijmegen was an early Roman military camp and later, the first to be named a municipium, or Roman city. Archeologist Pepjin van de Geer, who led the excavation, told the De Stentor that while it’s possible the vessel was created in a German glass workshop in cities like Cologne or Xanten, it’s also likely that the Batavians traded cattle hides to procure it. In addition to the piece, van de Geer’s team has also uncovered human bones, pitchers, cups, and other precious goods like jewelry, which indicates the site was once a burial ground.
