Before They Pass Away is a long-term project by photographer Jimmy Nelson, designed to give us the unique opportunity to discover more than 30 secluded and slowly vanishing tribes from all over the world. According to Nelson, his mission was to assure that the world never forgets how things used to be: “Most importantly, I wanted to create an ambitious aesthetic photographic document that would stand the test of time. A body of work that would be an irreplaceable ethnographic record of a fast disappearing world.

1. Kazakhs

The Kazakhs are the descendants of Turkic, Mongolic and Indo-Iranian tribes and Huns that populated the territory between Siberia and the Black Sea. They are a semi-nomadic people and have roamed the mountains and valleys of western Mongolia with their herds since the 19th century.

2. Himba

The Himba are an ancient tribe of tall, slender and statuesque herders. Since the 16th century they have lived in scattered settlements, leading a life that has remained unchanged, surviving war and droughts. The tribal structure helps them live in one of the most extreme environments on earth.

3. Huli

It is believed that the first Papua New Guineans migrated to the island over 45000 years ago. Today, over 3 million people, half of the heterogeneous population, live in the highlands. Some of these communities have engaged in low-scale tribal conflict with their neighbors for millennia.

4. Asaro

A number of different tribes have lived scattered across the highland plateau for 1000 years, in small agrarian clans, isolated by the harsh terrain and divided by language, custom and tradition. The legendary Asaro Mudmen first met with the Western world in the middle of the 20th century.

5. Kalam

The eastern half of New Guinea gained full independence from Australia in 1975, when Papua New Guinea was born. The indigenous population is one of the most heterogeneous in the world. Traditionally, the different tribes scattered across the highland plateau, live in small agrarian clans.

6. Goroka

The indigenous population of the world’s second largest island is one of the most heterogeneous in the world. The harsh terrain and historic inter-tribal warfare has lead to village isolation and the proliferation of distinct languages. A number of different tribes are scattered across the highland plateau.

7. Chukchi

The ancient Arctic Chukchi live on the peninsula of the Chukotka. Unlike other native groups of Siberia, they have never been conquered by Russian troops. Their environment and traditional culture endured destruction under Soviet rule, by weapons testing and pollution.

8. Maori

The long and intriguing story of the origin of the indigenous Maori people can be traced back to the 13th century, the mythical homeland Hawaiki, Eastern Polynesia. Due to centuries of isolation, the Maori established a distinct society with characteristic art, a separate language and unique mythology.

9. Mustang

The former kingdom of Lo is linked by religion, culture and history to Tibet, but is politically part of Nepal. Now Tibetan culture is in danger of disappearing, it stands alone as one of the last truly Tibetan cultures existing today. Until 1991 no outsiders were allowed to enter Mustang.

10. Gauchos

Nomadic and colorful horsemen and cowboys have wandered the prairies as early as the 1700s, when wild Cimarron cattle overpopulated the flatlands. In the 18th century, when leather was in high demand, Gauchos arose to clandestinely hunt the huge herds of horses and cattle.

H2O Myths & 10 Ways To Make Your Water More Bangin’

fitvillains:

I’ll be honest. I don’t ‘get’ why anyone would hate the taste of water. I don’t. I don’t understand you peeps, lol.

To me it has, and always will, taste like nothing. Maybe a refreshing nothing. Maybe a cold nothing. Maybe a ‘hint’ of earthy or chlorine nothing, but still nothing. (Similarly, I don’t get why people like the taste of a certain ‘type’ of water). That’s just me.

But from what I gather, it’s not an uncommon phenomenon, and with numbers of people swearing up and down the mountain tops that they know they should drink more water but they hate it, clearly this is something we need to address.

The thing is, you need water. You need a lot of it. And if you’re working out, trying to lose weight or just be healthier, you really need it.

"I hate water" just doesn’t cut it. :(

There are a TON of ways to spruce up your water to make it taste yummier, and I’ll share my 10 favorites with ya. But first, there are a lot of water ‘myths’ out there, so before you start reaching for one to excuse your H2O-less existence, let’s break ‘em down.

Fact-y H2O Myth Bustin’

1. The water you get from coffee, booze, soda & caffeinated tea counts too. Lemme stop you right there. Caffeine is a diuretic: that means it signals your body to release more water than normal. With booze, this can be 3-4 times the amount of water than normal (ever wonder why a little booze makes you NEED to pee?). If you’re drinking from this group of beverages, your body might nullify any hydration benefit, or even create a deficit: leaving you MORE dehydrated than before.

The water content of items like juice, water & smoothies can count: but they come with a higher caloric (and sugar) price. In general, anything that spikes your blood sugar will need a extra water to process in the body: don’t count these items for more than 1/2 their water content and make sure they’re included when you do your calorie/sugar count for the day (Tip for those that keep track - most people don’t count what they DRINK when watching their calories. Your body counts it. You should too.).

Tip: If you can’t stay away, for every coffee, caffeinated tea or (ugh….) soda, flush it down with a tall glass of water afterwards.

2. We don’t all need 6-8 glasses a day. This one MIGHT be true, but it doesn’t mean you don’t need any. As a rule of thumb, men should consume 128 ounces (3.75 Liters) of water daily, and women should consume 88 ounces (2.6 Liters. The taller you are, the more active you are, the sicker you are, the hotter it is: the more you need to drink. On days you’re working out, you’ll want to increase your minimum by about 25% or more for longer workouts. Some medications, including birth control, may increase YOUR particular body’s need for water. Know your stuffs!

If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it’s yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never meant to be.

I remember seeing this quote years ago and thinking it was one of the dumbest quotes I ever heard. First off, who would let something go that they loved so dearly?…
