In the animal world, as in our own, looks aren't everything! From frightful fish and beastly birds to repellent pugs and a mysterious mole, join the search for the world's ugliest animals to learn why they look the way they do. The features that we find grotesque are vital for the survival of these fascinating creatures. You'll witness the hideous camouflaged jaws of the alligator snapping turtle in action, see why one of the strangest noses in nature makes the star- nosed mole such a successful hunter, and come face to frightening face with the needle-toothed viperfish. These ghastly creatures may not be pinups of the animal world, but they are each glorious in their own unique way.

When it comes to big science, very few things are conclusively known. From Quantum Mechanics to Natural Selection, what we have instead are theories - ideas explain why things happen the way they do. We don't know for certain these are correct - no one ever saw the Big Bang - but with them we can paint beautiful, breathtaking pictures of everything from human behaviour to what the future may hold. Profiling the key scientists behind each theory, 30-Second Theories presents each entry in a unique, eye-catching full-colour design, with thought-provoking extras and stylish illustrations. It is essential for anyone keen on expanding their mind with science's most thrilling ideas.

Genre: Video Training

Synthesis & Sound Design Masterclass is a monster course spanning close to 50 videos with over 22 hours of total training. It will take you from a novice or even moderately accomplished synthesist to the next level, and then to the one beyond that. We'll take a cross platform approach to sound design, looking at techniques and tips that are common to many instruments, allowing you to get the most out of what you already have. This course is jammed full of practical knowledge, explantations, and concise breakdowns of why things work the way they do. Divided into two styles of video, each synthesis concept is explained in a "theory" video and then shown in action, in a series of "practical" videos where you get to watch a detailed construction of a high quality synth sound. These sounds are both cutting edge and classic, and are all hand crafted by Myagi on screen to give you an up-close view of each concept in action.
