UNESCO established its lists of Intangible Cultural Heritage with the aim of ensuring the better protection of important intangible cultural heritages worldwide and the awareness of their significance. Through a compendium of the different oral and intangible treasures of humankind worldwide, the program aims to draw attention to the importance of safeguarding intangible heritage, which UNESCO has identified as an essential component and as a repository of cultural diversity and of creative expression.

The list was established in 2008 when the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage took effect.

Sea horses - The last horse fishermen of Belgium

From The Guardian: Oostduinkerke on the West Flanders coast is the only place in the world where you will still see the 500-year-old tradition of fishermen trawling for shrimp on horseback



From UNESCO: Shrimp fishing on horseback in Oostduinkerke. In Oostduinkerke, shrimpers mounted on horseback drag a net through the surf to catch shrimp. A good knowledge of the sea and the sand strip and a close relationship with one's horse are essential. The tradition gives the community a strong sense of collective identity and plays a central role in social and cultural events, especially the two-day Shrimp Festival. Twelve households, each with its own speciality, are active in shrimp fishing. Knowledge is handed down from generation to generation, with experienced shrimpers demonstrating their fishing techniques to beginners.

Drake's Hotline Bling vs. the 1972 original Why can't we live together by Timmy Thomas...

"Hotline Bling" is a song by hip hop recording artist Drake, released as a single digitally on July 31, 2015. The song's instrumental heavily samples R&B singer Timmy Thomas' 1972 song "Why Can't We Live Together".



vs.



The song is notable for its sparse, stripped-down production, which featured only a Hammond organ, percussion from an early rhythm machine and Thomas's passionate, soulful vocal. Thomas first sang it as an improvised number on his own nightclub, the "Denisse Lounge". Afterwards, as the audience loved it, with the help of his employees, he wrote it.

It was recorded in Hialeah, FL-based TK Records.



The lyrics of the original are still moving:

Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
Why can't we live together?

Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together?

No more war, no more war, no more war
Just a little peace
No more war, no more war
All we want is some peace in this world

No matter, no matter what color
You are still my brother
I said, "No matter, no matter what color"
You are still my brother

Florida drives: hundreds of YouTube videos organized in playlists

The 7-mile bridge, Florida Keys, from Chris RoadWarrior:



"Anytime you drive the one and only Florida Keys on US 1 also called Overseas Highway between Key Largo and Key West you will test your driving skills over the legendary 7-mile bridge, on one side Atlantic Ocean on the other side Gulf of Mexico. A beautiful bridge but also a dangerous one when it comes to passing slow-moving vehicles in front of you."

There are hundreds of YouTube videos, neatly organized in playlists by the YouTube user Chris RoadWarrior: https://www.youtube.com/user/401RoadWarrior/playlists
