Lucas Adverse (@lucasadverse) has been juggling for six years, and playing the Japanese game kendama — in which players perform tricks using cups, a spike, a ball and string — for just two. “Juggling and kendama are great for the body and mind,” says 24-year-old Lucas. “They train muscles and improve reflexes, coordination, balance, concentration, everything.”
Growing up in Brazil (he now lives in Vancouver, B.C.), Lucas was not great at “futebol” — the only sport anyone wanted to play. But juggling and kendama have made him better “at all sports, including soccer.”
Ultimately, Lucas aims to bridge what he calls the “two distinct cultures” of juggling and kendama. Few jugglers play kendama, he says, and kendama players would never call themselves jugglers. “But both of these arts are about creatively manipulating objects in the air, they bring people together, anyone can learn — and they’re just really fun.”
Check out today’s story and our IGTV channel to see Lucas in action.


Photo by @michaelchristopherbrown | Our baby Poppy arrived two weeks ago today. She is a healthy and present baby and we are so thankful! As a former semi-nomad now first-time father, the meaning of words like home, family and love has began to shift to something deeper. “Heart surgery,” as my partner calls it. Happy new year from our family to yours 🎈


Photo by @max.lowe // To define wild in an experience for me would to be a silent observer, to sit and just for a moment quiet your ego and drive in the presence of complex and beautiful life beyond ourselves. Sitting and watching this female Jaguar stalk the banks of the Cuiaba River in Brazil was one of those moments, and one I revisit in my mind when I get lost in the noise.

Her Place is in Skin | Photograph by Briana Gardener (@brianagardener)
“This photograph features women of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. Wearing absolutely no makeup and in outfits styled to match the tone of their skin, the women will combat unhealthy beauty standards by celebrating their so-called ‘flaws,’ proving that beauty is no one color, size, or shape, and that true empowerment is much deeper than the skin,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Briana Gardener. “Posing together, these women will celebrate the strength that lies in community and the power that lies in unity.” This photo was selected for the January 11, 2019 edition of our Photos of the Week series.

“This is one awesome portrait, Briana! It's an intersectional celebration of women of all shapes and tones. Their tender pose reinforces the reminder that women and female-identifying folks should be supporting each other across the board. Well done!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

One of the most enjoyable things I’ve done in the last few years was go storm chasing. I went before the 2017 solar eclipse and we drove around the Great Plains looking for tornados. This wasn’t even the best time of year to go storm chasing, but we still managed to see a few storm cells, and of course got to see the eclipse.
Since then, it is something I recommend to everyone. There really is very little risk, even though that is the first thing which comes to mind for everyone. There is lost of boredom driving around, and then a great deal of excitement and activity.
It is something I very much wish to do again in the future. In fact, it is something I could see myself doing on an annual basis it is so much fun.

#FotoDelDía | Un tornado polvoriento aterriza en Colorado. Los tornados pueden formarse y moverse con poca o ninguna advertencia, lo que hace que fotografiar estas tormentas sea un desafío único.
