You've Changed Bro with Jeremy Lin

Jeremy Lin reflects on how the NBA has changed him in the short film “You’ve Changed Bro”. From playing videos games to getting advice, his friends and family feel like he’s changed since he’s hit the big time. His mom won’t appreciate his biggest change a new tattoo in Chinese. Look for cameos from Jubilee Project, Ryan Higa, KevJumba, Phil from Wong Fu Productions, Steve Nash and James Harden.

As usual, he closes out the video with a Bible verse. This time he chose Romans 12:2 – “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world , but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.”

Bring Me the Night by Sam Tsui x Kina Grannis

Singers Sam Tsui x Kina Grannis team up for the music video for “Bring Me the Night” off Sam’s “Make It Up” album. The two sing about how to bring a couple closer together when they’re separated by distance. When they’re both under the night sky with the moon and the stars out, they feel like they’re right next to each other.

Lyrics to Bring Me the Night by Sam Tsui x Kina Grannis

Measuring days in the spaces between our goodbyes
Learning to wait through the endless parade
Of our same old see-you-next-time’s
But when I close my eyes, the miles melt away
Like you’re here in my arms at the end of the day

So bring me the night, send out the stars
Cause when I’m dreaming we don’t seem so far
Darken the sky, and light up the moon
So that somehow you’ll be here with me soon
Bring me the night
Bring me the night
That brings me to you
You

Swear I don’t know if the days are as slow as they seem
Wondering when you’ll be with me again and this
Finally can be more than just a dream
But when I close my eyes, I want only to stay
Where the farthest you are is a heartbeat away

So bring me the night, send out the stars
Cause when I’m dreaming we don’t seem so far
Darken the sky, and light up the moon
So that somehow you’ll be here with me soon
Bring me the night
Bring me the night
That brings me to you

And it’s enough, knowing you are calling to me
While we’re dreaming beneath the same moon
All it takes is imagining you so that I can get through
One more long and lonely day

So bring the night, tell me it’s near
Give me the chance to to pretend to you’re here
Darken the sky and light up the moon,
Please bring it soon

So bring me the night, send out the stars
Cause when I’m dreaming we don’t seem so far
Darken the sky, and light up the moon
So that somehow you’ll be here with me soon
Bring me the night,
Bring me the night,
Bring me the night,
Bring me the night
That brings me to you

Emergency shelters made from paper by Shigeru Ban at TED

Emergency shelters made from paper by Shigeru Ban at TED

Long before sustainability became a buzzword, architect Shigeru Ban had begun his experiments with ecologically-sound building materials such as cardboard tubes and paper. His remarkable structures are often intended as temporary housing, designed to help the dispossessed in disaster-struck nations such as Haiti, Rwanda or Japan. Yet equally often the buildings remain a beloved part of the landscape long after they have served their intended purpose. Most people look at cardboard tubes and see something fit for the recycling bin. But architect Shigeru Ban turns them into beautiful buildings.

More about Shigeru Ban

Shigeru Ban’s architecture redefines aesthetics, space, structure and even the idea of permanence. In 1986, for the Alvar Aalto Exhibition near Tokyo, Ban experimented with constructing a building from long paper tubes, the kind found at textile factories. The tubes ended up being much stronger than he had imagined, and were easier to waterproof and fireproof than he had guessed. Ban created many experimental buildings in this vein — from the Japanese Pavilion at Expo 2000 in Germany, which was meant to be recycled upon demolition, and an office for himself and his students set atop the Pompidou Centre in Paris, where they worked for six years.

But Ban’s unusual designs have found another use — as emergency shelters for those who have lost their homes in disasters and wars. In 1994, Ban created shelters for refugees in Rwanda. The next year, after an earthquake in Japan, he rebuilt a local church out of paper tubes that became a local fixture for 10 years. His designs — both low-cost, and dignity-building — have housed those affected by disasters in Taiwan, China, Haiti, Turkey and Sri Lanka. He also helped develop a shelter system after the Japanese tsunami of 2011.

The founder of Shigeru Ban Architects, Ban has received many awards, including the Architectural Institute of Japan Prize. He currently teaches at Kyoto University of Art and Design.
