RedLineBJason deCaires Taylor (born 12 August 1974 in Dover) is a British sculptor and creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park – the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park – and underwater museum.

He is best known for installing site-specific underwater sculptures which develop into artificial coral reefs integrating his skills as a sculptor, marine conservationist, underwater photographer and scuba diving instructor.

His works in Grenada have been listed among the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His most ambitious projects to date are the creation of the world’s largest underwater sculpture museum, the Cancún Underwater Museum, situated off the coast between Cancún and Isla Mujeres, Mexico and Ocean Atlas (2014), a 5-metre tall, 60-ton sculpture off the Bahamas. Taylor is currently based on the island of Lanzarote, Spain, working on a major new underwater museum for the Atlantic Ocean.

RedLineBJason deCaires Taylor’s New Sculpture “Nest” Unveiled
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, July 31, 2017

The new work by underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor – called “Nest” – has been completed with the installation of the final figures.

The sculptor describes the work thus: “‘Nest’ creates a new habitat space, a nucleus of protection and support. The circular formation evokes time and continuum, an echo of the circle of life.”

Now open to the public, the new sculpture, which is comprised of 48 life-size human figures, is situated near the island of Gili Meno, one of the three Gili Islands found between Bali and Lombok.

It’s the first time that Taylor has situated a work in the Asia region; his sprawling masterpiece, “Museo Atlántico,” is located off the Spanish island of Lanzarote.

Commissioned by the luxury resort developer BASK, the new sculpture sits in just 13 feet of water, so it’s possible for snorkelers as well as divers to visit the installation.

RedLineBLying on the northeastern-most point of the islet of Old San Juan, Castillo San Felipe del Morro is named in honor of King Philip II of Spain. The fortification, also referred to as el Morro or ‘the promontory,’ was designed to guard the entrance to the San Juan Bay, and defend the Spanish colonial port city of San Juan from seaborne enemies.

In 1983, the citadel was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in conjunction with the San Juan National Historic Site.

~~GARITA DEL DIABLO~~

The sentry boxes or “garitas” were used by the Spanish soldiers or guards to protect the city walls night and day. Some of these were located quite near to others but others were more distant and solitary.

At night the guards would occasionally shout a call to other guards in their boxes so as to check on their whereabouts and to keep from falling asleep.

TRAGEDY STRIKES PUERTO RICO’S NATIONAL GUARD

PORT WENTWORTH, GEORGIA

Surveillance video captured a 1950’s-era military cargo plane plunging to the ground. The C-130 aircraft exploded into flames on a busy Georgia highway Wednesday, May 2, killing all nine crew members aboard.

The Puerto Rico National Guard plane took off from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport shortly before 11:30 a.m. and was headed for retirement.

Surveillance video from a nearby business captured what happened next, CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann reports. The plane banked left before nose-diving and spiraling into the ground. Seconds later, a fireball and black smoke went shooting into the sky.

The plane crashed into the median of the highway, narrowly avoiding traffic, warehouses and a nearby gas station.

The pilot was identified as Maj. José Rafael Román, who hails from the coastal town of Manatí along Puerto Rico’s north coast. The mayor of that town, José Sánchez, told The Associated Press that Román had two young boys and his wife is five months pregnant with a girl.

“The town is in mourning,” Sanchez said.

“My condolences to all Puerto Rican families.”

On Thursday, the Puerto Rico National Guard identified the other crew members as 1st Lt. David Albandoz, Master Sgt. Jean Audriffred, Master Sgt. Mario Brana, Master Sgt. Eric Circuns, Master Sgt. Víctor Colón, Senior Airman Roberto Espada, Senior Master Sgt. Jan Paravisini and Maj. Carlos Pérez Serra.
