          系统管理员的 SELinux 指南:这个大问题的 42 个答案      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

获取有关生活、宇宙和除了有关 SELinux 的重要问题的答案

“一个重要而普遍的事实是,事情并不总是你看上去的那样 …” ―Douglas Adams,《银河系漫游指南》

安全、坚固、遵从性、策略是末世中系统管理员的四骑士。除了我们的日常任务之外 —— 监控、备份、实施、调优、更新等等 —— 我们还需要负责我们的系统安全。即使这些系统是第三方提供商告诉我们该禁用增强安全性的系统。这看起来像《碟中碟》中 Ethan Hunt 的工作一样。

面对这种窘境,一些系统管理员决定去服用蓝色小药丸,因为他们认为他们永远也不会知道如生命、宇宙、以及其它一些大问题的答案。而我们都知道,它的答案就是这个 42

按《银河系漫游指南》的精神,这里是关于在你的系统上管理和使用 SELinux 这个大问题的 42 个答案。

  1. SELinux 是一个标签系统,这意味着每个进程都有一个标签。每个文件、目录、以及系统对象都有一个标签。策略规则负责控制标签化的进程和标签化的对象之间的访问。由内核强制执行这些规则。
  2. 两个最重要的概念是:标签化(文件、进程、端口等等)和类型强制(基于不同的类型隔离不同的的进程)。
  3. 正确的标签格式是 user:role:type:level(可选)。
  4. 多级别安全Multi-Level Security(MLS)强制的目的是基于它们所使用数据的安全级别,对进程(域)强制实施控制。比如,一个秘密级别的进程是不能读取极机密级别的数据。
  5. 多类别安全Multi-Category Security(MCS)强制相互保护相似的进程(如虚拟机、OpenShift gears、SELinux 沙盒、容器等等)。
  6. 在启动时改变 SELinux 模式的内核参数有:
    • autorelabel=1 → 强制给系统重新标签化
    • selinux=0 → 内核不加载 SELinux 基础设施的任何部分
    • enforcing=0 → 以许可permissive模式启动
  7. 如果给整个系统重新标签化:

    # touch /.autorelabel 
    # reboot
    

    如果系统标签中有大量的错误,为了能够让 autorelabel 成功,你可以用许可模式引导系统。

  8. 检查 SELinux 是否启用:# getenforce

  9. 临时启用/禁用 SELinux:# setenforce [1|0]

  10. SELinux 状态工具:# sestatus

  11. 配置文件:/etc/selinux/config

  12. SELinux 是如何工作的?这是一个为 Apache Web Server 标签化的示例:

    • 二进制文件:/usr/sbin/httpdhttpd_exec_t
    • 配置文件目录:/etc/httpdhttpd_config_t
    • 日志文件目录:/var/log/httpdhttpd_log_t
    • 内容目录:/var/www/htmlhttpd_sys_content_t
    • 启动脚本:/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.servicehttpd_unit_file_d
    • 进程:/usr/sbin/httpd -DFOREGROUNDhttpd_t
    • 端口:80/tcp, 443/tcphttpd_t, http_port_t

    httpd_t 安全上下文中运行的一个进程可以与具有 httpd_something_t 标签的对象交互。

  13. 许多命令都可以接收一个 -Z 参数去查看、创建、和修改安全上下文:

    • ls -Z
    • id -Z
    • ps -Z
    • netstat -Z
    • cp -Z
    • mkdir -Z

    当文件被创建时,它们的安全上下文会根据它们父目录的安全上下文来创建(可能有某些例外)。RPM 可以在安装过程中设定安全上下文。

  14. 这里有导致 SELinux 出错的四个关键原因,它们将在下面的 15 - 21 条中展开描述:

    • 标签化问题
    • SELinux 需要知道一些东西
    • SELinux 策略或者应用有 bug
    • 你的信息可能被损坏
  15. 标签化问题:如果在 /srv/myweb 中你的文件没有被正确的标签化,访问可能会被拒绝。这里有一些修复这类问题的方法:

    • 如果你知道标签:# semanage fcontext -a -t httpd_sys_content_t '/srv/myweb(/.*)?'
    • 如果你知道和它有相同标签的文件:# semanage fcontext -a -e /srv/myweb /var/www
    • 恢复安全上下文(对于以上两种情况):# restorecon -vR /srv/myweb
  16. 标签化问题:如果你是移动了一个文件,而不是去复制它,那么这个文件将保持原始的环境。修复这类问题:

    • 使用标签来改变安全上下文:# chcon -t httpd_system_content_t /var/www/html/index.html
    • 使用参考文件的标签来改变安全上下文:# chcon --reference /var/www/html/ /var/www/html/index.html
    • 恢复安全上下文(对于以上两种情况):# restorecon -vR /var/www/html/
  17. 如果 SELinux 需要知道 HTTPD 在 8585 端口上监听,使用下列命令告诉 SELinux:# semanage port -a -t http_port_t -p tcp 8585

  18. SELinux 需要知道是否允许在运行时改变 SELinux 策略部分,而无需重写 SELinux 策略。例如,如果希望 httpd 去发送邮件,输入:# setsebool -P httpd_can_sendmail 1

  19. SELinux 需要知道 SELinux 设置的关闭或打开的一系列布尔值:

    • 查看所有的布尔值:# getsebool -a
    • 查看每个布尔值的描述:# semanage boolean -l
    • 设置某个布尔值:# setsebool [_boolean_] [1|0]
    • 将它配置为永久值,添加 -P 标志。例如:# setsebool httpd_enable_ftp_server 1 -P
  20. SELinux 策略/应用可能有 bug,包括:

    • 不寻常的代码路径
    • 配置
    • 重定向 stdout
    • 泄露的文件描述符
    • 可执行内存
    • 错误构建的库

    开一个工单(但不要提交 Bugzilla 报告;使用 Bugzilla 没有对应的服务)

  21. 你的信息可能被损坏了,假如你被限制在某个区域,尝试这样做:

    • 加载内核模块
    • 关闭 SELinux 的强制模式
    • 写入 etc_t/shadow_t
    • 修改 iptables 规则
  22. 用于开发策略模块的 SELinux 工具:# yum -y install setroubleshoot setroubleshoot-server。安装完成之后重引导机器或重启 auditd 服务。

  23. 使用 journalctl 去列出所有与 setroubleshoot 相关的日志:# journalctl -t setroubleshoot --since=14:20

  24. 使用 journalctl 去列出所有与特定 SELinux 标签相关的日志。例如:# journalctl _SELINUX_CONTEXT=system_u:system_r:policykit_t:s0

  25. 当 SELinux 错误发生时,使用setroubleshoot 的日志,并尝试找到某些可能的解决方法。例如:从 journalctl 中:

    Jun 14 19:41:07 web1 setroubleshoot: SELinux is preventing httpd from getattr access on the file /var/www/html/index.html. For complete message run: sealert -l 12fd8b04-0119-4077-a710-2d0e0ee5755e
    
    # sealert -l 12fd8b04-0119-4077-a710-2d0e0ee5755e
    SELinux is preventing httpd from getattr access on the file /var/www/html/index.html.
    
    ***** Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests ************************
    
    If you want to fix the label,
    /var/www/html/index.html default label should be httpd_syscontent_t.
    Then you can restorecon.
    Do
    # /sbin/restorecon -v /var/www/html/index.html
    
  26. 日志:SELinux 记录的信息全在这些地方:

    • /var/log/messages
    • /var/log/audit/audit.log
    • /var/lib/setroubleshoot/setroubleshoot_database.xml
  27. 日志:在审计日志中查找 SELinux 错误:# ausearch -m AVC,USER_AVC,SELINUX_ERR -ts today

  28. 针对特定的服务,搜索 SELinux 的访问向量缓存Access Vector Cache(AVC)信息:# ausearch -m avc -c httpd

  29. audit2allow 实用工具可以通过从日志中搜集有关被拒绝的操作,然后生成 SELinux 策略允许的规则,例如:

    • 产生一个人类可读的关于为什么拒绝访问的描述:# audit2allow -w -a
    • 查看允许被拒绝的类型强制规则:# audit2allow -a
    • 创建一个自定义模块:# audit2allow -a -M mypolicy,其中 -M 选项将创建一个特定名称的强制类型文件(.te),并编译这个规则到一个策略包(.pp)中:mypolicy.pp mypolicy.te
    • 安装自定义模块:# semodule -i mypolicy.pp
  30. 配置单个进程(域)运行在许可模式:# semanage permissive -a httpd_t

  31. 如果不再希望一个域在许可模式中:# semanage permissive -d httpd_t

  32. 禁用所有的许可域:# semodule -d permissivedomains

  33. 启用 SELinux MLS 策略:# yum install selinux-policy-mls。 在 /etc/selinux/config 中:

    SELINUX=permissive
    SELINUXTYPE=mls
    

    确保 SELinux 运行在许可模式:# setenforce 0

    使用 fixfiles 脚本来确保在下一次重启时文件将被重新标签化:# fixfiles -F onboot # reboot

  34. 创建一个带有特定 MLS 范围的用户:# useradd -Z staff_u john

    使用 useradd 命令,映射新用户到一个已存在的 SELinux 用户(上面例子中是 staff_u)。

  35. 查看 SELinux 和 Linux 用户之间的映射:# semanage login -l

  36. 为用户定义一个指定的范围:# semanage login --modify --range s2:c100 john

  37. 调整用户家目录上的标签(如果需要的话):# chcon -R -l s2:c100 /home/john

  38. 列出当前类别:# chcat -L

  39. 修改类别或者创建你自己的分类,修改如下文件:/etc/selinux/_<selinuxtype>_/setrans.conf

  40. 以某个特定的文件、角色和用户安全上下文来运行一个命令或者脚本:# runcon -t initrc_t -r system_r -u user_u yourcommandhere

    • -t 是文件安全上下文
    • -r 是角色安全上下文
    • -u 是用户安全上下文
  41. 在容器中禁用 SELinux:

    • 使用 Podman:# podman run --security-opt label=disable ...
    • 使用 Docker:# docker run --security-opt label=disable ...
  42. 如果需要给容器提供完全访问系统的权限:

    • 使用 Podman:# podman run --privileged ...
    • 使用 Docker:# docker run --privileged ...

就这些了,你已经知道了答案。因此请相信我:不用恐慌,去打开 SELinux 吧

          UKTools:安装最新 Linux 内核的简便方法      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ubuntu 中有许多实用程序可以将 Linux 内核升级到最新的稳定版本。我们之前已经写过关于这些实用程序的文章,例如 Linux Kernel Utilities (LKU)、 Ubuntu Kernel Upgrade Utility (UKUU) 和 Ubunsys。

另外还有一些其它实用程序可供使用。我们计划在其它文章中包含这些,例如 ubuntu-mainline-kernel.sh 和从主线内核手动安装的方式。

今天我们还会教你类似的使用工具 —— UKTools。你可以尝试使用这些实用程序中的任何一个来将 Linux 内核升级至最新版本。

最新的内核版本附带了安全漏洞修复和一些改进,因此,最好保持最新的内核版本以获得可靠、安全和更好的硬件性能。

有时候最新的内核版本可能会有一些漏洞,并且会导致系统崩溃,这是你的风险。我建议你不要在生产环境中安装它。

建议阅读:

什么是 UKTools

UKTools 意思是 Ubuntu 内核工具,它包含两个 shell 脚本 ukupgradeukpurge

ukupgrade 意思是 “Ubuntu Kernel Upgrade”,它允许用户将 Linux 内核升级到 Ubuntu/Mint 的最新稳定版本以及基于 kernel.ubuntu.com 的衍生版本。

ukpurge 意思是 “Ubuntu Kernel Purge”,它允许用户在机器中删除旧的 Linux 内核镜像或头文件,用于 Ubuntu/Mint 和其衍生版本。它将只保留三个内核版本。

此实用程序没有 GUI,但它看起来非常简单直接,因此,新手可以在没有任何问题的情况下进行升级。

我正在运行 Ubuntu 17.10,目前的内核版本如下:

$ uname -a
Linux ubuntu 4.13.0-39-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Thu Apr 5 14:25:01 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

运行以下命令来获取系统上已安装内核的列表(Ubuntu 及其衍生产品)。目前我持有 7 个内核。

$ dpkg --list | grep linux-image

          Torchlight Frontiers Announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



Perfect World Entertainment Announces Torchlight Frontiers

Today, Perfect World Entertainment, a leading publisher of live service games, announced its newest development studio, Echtra Games, is working on the next iteration of the award-winning Torchlight series: Torchlight Frontiers. Set in the same beloved Torchlight universe from Torchlight I and II, this shared-world action-RPG brings back many of the franchise’s signature features and mechanics that captured the hearts of ARPG fans around the world. Led by former Runic Games and Blizzard North co-founder, Max Schaefer, the team developing Torchlight Frontiers is comprised of veteran developers who were responsible for the games that defined the ARPG genre, including the original Diablo and Torchlight franchises. Torchlight Frontiers will be available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

“Perfect World Entertainment has had a strong working relationship with Max Schaefer, dating back to the original Torchlight game, and we believe in his vision to evolve the Torchlight series,” said Yoon Im, senior vice president of publishing at Perfect World Entertainment. “Max has put together an all-star team of developers, and we continue to be amazed by the sheer level of talent and wealth of experience that they bring to Torchlight Frontiers. We’re proud to have Echtra Games as a part of the company.”


“Evolving the Torchlight universe into a shared world has always been a goal for the franchise, and I’m excited that we’re finally able to make it a reality,” said Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games. “Torchlight Frontiers will be a living, breathing universe that will still feel uniquely Torchlight, while we add our own creative spin to the game. The team is building something truly special, and we can’t wait for fans to play it for the first time at Gamescom and PAX West.”

Torchlight Frontiers combines the heart of the beloved Torchlight series with a shared, persistent and dynamically generated world. In true Torchlight style, players will team up with friends and devoted pets to hack and slack their way through a vibrant world, discover ancient ruins of lost civilizations and brave dungeons filled with riches and dangerous creatures. Additional details about Torchlight Frontiers will be revealed at a later date.

Torchlight Frontiers is headed to Gamescom and PAX West! Show attendees can be among the first to play an early demo of the game and meet the Echtra Games developers by visiting the Perfect World Entertainment booths at Gamescom in Germany (Hall 8, Booth# B41) from August 21 – 25 and PAX West in Seattle (Booth # 1115) from August 31 – September 3.

Era algo que ya se sabía pero ahora se ha hecho oficial al confirmarse que el joven actor Joivan Wade (“La primera Purga: La noche de las bestias”) interpretará a Victor Stone, alias Cyborg, en “Doom Patrol”, otra de las series que están preparando para DC Universe y que será un spin-off de la todavía por estrenar “Titans”. La noticia la ha dado la misma DC en un comunicado oficial en el que aclara que la adaptación del personaje será la que os fans esperan: Descrito como encantador y carismático, Vic puede estar conectado a todos los ordenadores del mundo pero sigue luchando por mantener las conexiones que le hacen humano. Desesperado por lograr la aceptación del mundo exterior, Vic domina la maldición de su cuerpo cibernético y usa sus habilidades como el héroe definitivo de la era digital. El personaje fue interpretado el año pasado en la gran pantalla por Ray Fisher en “Liga de la Justicia”, pero por ahora no hay planes oficiales de que Fisher vuelva a ponerse en la piel […]

<i>Neither is ‘protestant hurling’, yet your wags obviously thought it worthy of leaving their brains and entering the twittersphere.</i> Oh, get a life, you're being completely ludicrous. It's a dig both at a certain posh population in South County Dublin/North Wicklow who would sneer at 'hurling', and at the non-posh GAA crowd to whom it exists in another universe.

          Masters of the Universe Classics...Evil Seed 2002...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Numa colecção com personagens e mais personagens referentes a 3 séries de animação, encontramos umas de que gostamos mais e outras de que gostamos menos.
O Evil Seed da série de animação de 2002 (ou 200X, como também é conhecida) é uma antítese de Moss Man...uma "erva daninha" sempre a tentar destruir Eternia e a levar o mundo natural a obedecer às suas ideias malignas.

 Evil Seed no episódio "Orko´s Graden"

Evil Seed é uma personagem espectacular na sua versão de 2002 e fiquei muito satisfeito quando em 2014 aparece como figura de acção na colecção Masters of the Universe Classics.
A escultura é algo de completamente novo e arriscado numa figura de acção, mas funcionou perfeitamente e dá realismo à personagem de tal forma que se transforma numa peça a ter em muita conta, com detalhes mesmo bem pensados.


Segundo se sabe, Sero Malusto, mais conhecido por Evil Seed é afinal uma criação de Moss Man que ganha vida para ajudar Grayskull nas Great Wars contra King Hssss, os homens serpente e as tropas invasoras da Horda. Evil Seed acaba por trair Moss Man quando encontra um gosto macabro por deformar a vida vegetal para seu divertimento. É aprisionado por Moss Man com encantamentos especiais e é Orko que o liberta devido à sua curiosidade infantil.


A escultura está muito boa e até as gavinhas das pernas são peças independentes que não se separam das pernas mas estão soltas, proporcionando um efeito ainda mais realista do vilão vegetal.

 
A personagem vem com dois acessórios, um deles é uma gavinha draconiana que se enrola no seu braço e promete morder qualquer um que se aproxime demasiado ou que se encontre ao seu alcance.
O outro acessório é um brinde que não pertence a Evil Seed, mas sim ao Rei Randor.


Este acessório é o Ceptro do Poder, um acessório que vem directamente da série de animação da Filmation. É estranho uma figura de uma série de animação trazer um acessório de outra série mas, com os MOTUC, acontecem coisas como estas com alguma frequência. para nós coleccionadores desta linha é qualquer coisa de fabuloso.


O Ceptro do Poder é um artefacto que tem sido passado de geração em geração na Família Real de Eternia. Simboliza o seu reinado e lembra ao governante que o verdadeiro poder está no seu povo que ele tem a honra de servir.
É um pequeno artefacto que aparece no episódio 55 da segunda temporada de He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, intitulado "The Magic Falls".
Um presente muito bom para os coleccionadores que consigam adquirir esta figura Evil Seed.

The School of Athens by Raphael, 1511.
Photo: Bowdoin

Fernando Nascimento began the lesson by dimming the classroom lights so the assembled students could get a good view of the PowerPoint image being projected: it’s a representation of The School of Athens, a fresco painted by the Renaissance master Raphael in the early 1500s portraying the theme of philosophy.

In the center, the philosophers Plato and Aristotle are locked in debate, each holding a book, one of them pointing to the earth, the other to the heavens. “Raphael’s masterpiece, like most works of arts, is an interpretation of reality,” said Nascimento. “According to his interpretation,” he continued, “Aristotle, the younger of the two philosophers, is pointing downwards, which makes sense, because he’s holding a copy of his Ethics, which argues that an important part of man’s happiness lies on earth and in being a good, ethical, citizen. Plato, meanwhile, is all about metaphysics and the soul. The answer to the most important questions lies in the heavens, according to him, which explains why he is pointing upwards. With his other hand, Plato is holding Timaeus, his exploration of the nature of the physical world and the universe.”

This is not a philosophy class, nor even part of an art history course, but a new Digital and Computational Studies(DCS) module, taught in the 2018 spring semester, called Digital Text Analysis. It was devised by Nascimento himself, a postdoctoral fellow in DCS who holds a PhD in philosophy. The idea, he explained, is to use computational techniques to augment conventional approaches, thereby gaining greater insight into the study of humanities through the analysis of texts. In this case, he said, the painting provides a good introduction to the texts in question...

Digital text analysis does not, of course, limit itself to the study of philosophy, and can be applied to any text. Nascimento’s students teamed up into pairs to work on a variety of texts of their choosing. Sawyer Billings and Vincent LaRovere, both class of 2018, chose “cars and technology” for their project. “We’re pulling texts from a number of car websites, such as Autotrader and Motor Trend, and comparing them to another group of texts about technology,” said Billings.

          Turkish Airlines launches new inflight safety video      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Turkish Airlines, the airline that flies to more countries and international destinations than any other airline, launches a new animated safety video, complete with familiar LEGO® minifigures in surprising new roles.

The custom-animated safety video for Turkish Airlines was created by the teams who assembled “The LEGO Movie”, “The LEGO Batman Movie”, “The LEGO NINJAGO® Movie” and the highly anticipated sequel “The LEGO Movie 2” due in cinemas beginning February 2019, which reunites the heroes of the first film in an all new action-packed adventure. In partnership with Warner Bros. and featuring the popular characters from The LEGO Movie franchise, the safety video will be shown on all flights starting today and will also debut online.

The safety video, which is the first LEGO safety video ever made, demonstrates step-by-step safety procedures to passengers in a fun, unique style – complete with sensible airline-approved humor, celebrity cameos and an unforgettable song and dance number. Turkish Airlines is proud to have one of the youngest fleets in the world and strives to achieve the best in aviation safety standards. Whether frequent travellers or first-time fliers, the video aims to inform and entertain passengers, alongside an extensive selection of movies, TV shows, music and games available in different languages on the in-flight entertainment system. 

The safety video will kick off the “biggest partnership with the smallest cast ever assembled”, hinting there is much more to come from the Turkish Airlines and LEGO Movie franchise alliance. Leading up to the worldwide release of “The LEGO Movie 2”, Turkish Airlines will roll-out a global TV campaign, film themed wrapped airplanes, in-flight and in-airport activations and even a second safety video. A partnership sure to entertain and delight!

M. İlker Aycı, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee commented; “As a leading global airline with an emphasis on safety, we are excited to partner with Warner Bros. and The LEGO Movie franchise for this video. We are both brands that are enjoyed around the world, bringing together generations and cultures everywhere. We hope that our passengers can enjoy this new video, which has something for everyone.” Blair Rich, President, Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Pictures Group and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment said; “We are thrilled to be working with Turkish Airlines again and “widening their world” to include that of our colorful LEGO Movie universe. The partnership showcases the best of two different brands converging in a clever and imaginative way, connecting to consumers and entertaining them.”

The LEGO Movie franchise-inspired safety video was brought to life by a 16-strong production team consisting of 2 concept artists, 3 layout artists, 7 animators and 4 lighting technicians. Lasting more than 950 days from beginning to end, the specialists used 2,938,840 LEGO bricks to animate the LEGO action. A total of 9,658,631 CPU hours (Central Processing Units) were used to generate 973 versions of animation. 30 different versions of the new safety video were created, both in English and Turkish, to cover the safety particulars of the 15 different airplane models in the Turkish Airlines fleet.

De acordo com a imprensa norte-americana, o ator Joivan Wade de "A Primeira Noite de Um Crime", foi adicionado no elenco da série "Doom Patrol"Wade interpretará Victor Stone, o Cyborg. 

Os membros da Doom Patrol (Patrulha do Destino) sofreram acidentes horríveis que lhes deram habilidades sobre-humanas, mas também os deixaram marcados e desfigurados. Traumatizados e oprimidos, a equipe encontrou um propósito através de The Chief, que os reuniu para investigar os fenômenos mais estranhos existentes e proteger a Terra do que eles encontram.

          I won the Ig Nobel prize by trying to answer the question 'are cats liquid?' — here's what I found      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

liquid cat

  • A liquid is traditionally defined as a material that adapts its shape to fit a container, and under certain conditions, cats seem to fit this definition.
  • Reformulating the question "are cats liquid?" illustrates some problems at the heart of rheology, the study of the deformations and flows of matter.
  • My study on the rheology of cats won the 2017 Ig Nobel Prize in Physics.
  • The prizes are awarded every year by Improbable Research, an organization devoted to science and humor.

The Conversation

 

A liquid is traditionally defined as a material that adapts its shape to fit a container. Yet under certain conditions, cats seem to fit this definition.

This somewhat paradoxical observation emerged on the web a few years ago and joined the long list of internet memes involving our feline friends. When I first saw this question it made me laugh, and then think. I decided to reformulate it to illustrate some problems at the heart of rheology, the study of the deformations and flows of matter. My study on the rheology of cats won the 2017 Ig Nobel Prize in Physics.

The prizes are awarded every year by Improbable Research, an organization devoted to science and humor. The goal is to highlight scientific studies that first make people laugh, then think. A ceremony is held every year at Harvard University.

What is a liquid?

At the center of the definition of a liquid is an action: A material must be able to modify its form to fit within a container. The action must also have a characteristic duration. In rheology this is called the relaxation time. Determining if something is liquid depends on whether it's observed over a time period that's shorter or longer than the relaxation time.

If we take cats as our example, the fact is that they can adapt their shape to their container if we give them enough time. Cats are thus liquid if we give them the time to become liquid. In rheology, the state of a material is not really a fixed property — what must be measured is the relaxation time. What is its value and on what does it depend? For example, does the relaxation time of a cat vary with its age? (In rheology we speak of thixotropy)

liquid cat

Could the type of container be a factor? (In rheology this is studied in "wetting" problems.) Or does it vary with the cat's degree of stress? (One speaks of "shear thickening" if the relaxation time increases with stress, or "shear thinning" if the opposite is true.) Of course, we mean stress in the mechanical sense rather than emotional, but the two meanings may overlap in some cases.

The 'Deborah number' and the flow of mountains

What cats show clearly is that determining the state of a material requires comparing two time periods: the relaxation time and the experimental time, which is the time elapsed since the onset of deformation initiated by the container. For instance, it may be the time elapsed since the cat stepped into a sink. Conventionally, one divides the relaxation time by the experimental time, and if the result is more than 1, the material is relatively solid; if the result is lower than 1, the material is relatively liquid.

glacier path

This is referred to as the Deborah number, after the biblical priestess who remarked that on geological time scales ("before God") even mountains flowed. On shorter time scales one can see glaciers progressively flowing down valleys.

Even if the relaxation time is very large (days, years), the behavior can be that of a liquid if the Deborah number is small (compared to 1). Conversely, even if the relaxation time is very small (milliseconds), the behavior can be that of a solid if the Deborah number is large (compared to 1). This is the case if one observes a water balloon at the instant when it's popped.

The Deborah number is an example of dimensionless number: Since we divide one time period by another, the ratio does not have any unit. In rheology, and in science more generally, there are many dimensionless numbers that can be used to determine the state or regime of a material or system.

Measuring the speed of cake batter

For liquids there is another dimensionless number that can be used to estimate whether the flow will be turbulent, with vortices, or whether it will calmly follow the outline of the container (we say that the flow is laminar).

Water Ballon Popping

If the flow speed is V and the container has a typical size h perpendicular to the flow, then we can define the velocity gradient V/h. The inverse of this velocity gradient scales as a time.

Comparing this duration and the relaxation time produces the Reynolds number in the case of fluids dominated by inertia (like water), or the Weissenberg number for those dominated by elasticity (like cake batter). If these dimensionless numbers are large in comparison to 1, then the flow is likely to be turbulent. If they're small in comparison to 1 the flow is likely to be laminar.

Asking the question of whether cats were a liquid allowed me to illustrate the use of these dimensionless numbers in rheology. I hope that it will make people laugh and then think.

SIZING - if you need a size that is not listed, please contact me. because bead size can change the size of a bracelet, my sizes are always the INSIDE circumference of the piece when clasped, NOT the unclasped length. you can determine the size you need by measuring the smallest part of your wrist and adding 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch depending on how loose you'd like it. for example, if your wrist measures 6 1/2 inches, you'd order a size 7. please ask if you need help determining size.

agates are among the oldest good luck and healing stones. the name is said to come for the Achates River in Sicily. it was described by the Greek philosopher Theoprastus in 350 B.C. and in Byzantium, people already knew how to enhance the color of agate by burning. because of its layered structure, agate was often used for cameo engraving of heads and coats of arms against a deeper underlying color. agate can be found wherever there were former volcanoes.

this lustrous gem acquired its name from the ancient Romans, who wore elongated pearls as ear pendants that they called pirla, a slang diminutive of pira (“pear”). it’s said that if diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then pearls must be her favorite sister. the pearl is an organic gem grown within oysters and a few other mollusks. folklore says that Cleopatra served wine with ground pearls in it to her more important guests. precious pearl jewelry, much loved by kings, emperors, tsars, maharajahs and princes can be admired in museums throughout the world. a pearl necklace worn four thousand years ago by the Persian queen Achemenid can still be admired today.

turquoise has been revered for thousands of years! Crusaders discovered this stone in Turkey. its name means "Turkish stone" in French, a reference to where Persian material passed on its way to Europe. Native Americans have long considered it a holy stone. they also believed it was a magic stone protecting them against harm. objects of turquoise have been discovered in tombs, indicating that the ancient Egyptians and Greeks also believed the stone to have protective properties. in the middle ages, it was thought to give women a sense of happiness and contentment and guarantee success and power to men. the most beautiful specimens are found in Arizona.

glistening green peridot is a volcanic gem formed in the deep fires of the earth. peridot splits and bends the rays of light passing through it, giving it a velvety appearance and rich glow. pronounced PEAR-ih-doh (or PEAR-ih-dot), its yellow-green color is mainly dependent on the amount of ferrous iron present. the traditional birthstone of August, peridot has been mined for over 4,000 years on Hawaii, it is treasured as the tears of Pele. an entire beach in Oahu is formed of peridot sand, worn to powder by the ceaseless ocean. it is said to have been Cleopatra's favorite gemstone. avoid exposing peridot beads to acids, quick temperature changes, scratches, sharp blows, or home ultrasonic cleaners.

the role played by silver in ancient civilizations is similar to that played by gold. until the eighteenth century silver was considered almost as valuable as gold. silver jewelry was produced as early as the fourth millennium B.C. Saxony was for a long time the main supplier of silver and it became very rich as a result. after the discovery of the Americas by the Europeans, so much silver was mined in the United States and Mexico that the price and the value attached to silver fell sharply. today the largest deposits of silver are found in Mexico, Australia and the former Soviet Union. silver is a precious metal, not a mineral.

Ages: 8+

WARNING: This is a preview of Sword of the Stars: Control! All components and rules are prototype and subject to change.


Review:
tl;dr: Quick and dirty area control with a little take that, needs either more or less theme.

Getting to the Game: Six planets are laid out in the center of the play area. Each starts out with a single civilian counter. Shuffle the huge stack of cards, leaving out the "Cease Fire" card. Add that card randomly to the bottom 30 cards, and then deal three cards to each player from the top of the deck.

Quoting from the rulebook: "Each player is an aspiring warlord seeking control of a galactic sector. The six suits of numbered cards represent the alien armies best suited for life on six different planets." The object here is to use the cards in your hand and match their suits to the planets, while also making sure that the sum of the values of the cards are higher than the current cards there. Succeed, and you take over the planet, adding the number of cards you just played to the population of the planet. When the Cease Fire card is drawn, it signals one more round for everyone (including the player who drew the card), and then... I dunno. The intergalactic negotiators have sued for peace, perhaps? Regardless, the highest total controlled population wins the round. You can either play to a total score or a set number of rounds.



Playing the Game: Even though you start the game with three cards in your hand, you'll draw two every turn, and your hand limit at the end of the turn is seven. In practice, this is enough to stockpile the cards you want, so escalating the conflicts feels about right. The game also limits you to one invasion per turn, which also feels solid and prevents someone from holding high cards until the last round, sniping a ton of points. Control! also provides "Spec Ops" cards in the deck, which allow for powerful abilities like nuking all life on the planet (but only if you immediately move at least one of your armies there?), assassinating an army card from an enemy world, adding 5 civilian colonists to a world you control, and so on. A round takes 10 minutes or so, if everyone's playing quickly, and overall, time and mechanics suit each other nicely. This is a fun mix of escalating conflicts and has the perfect amount of interaction and messing with your opponents' plans.

My main problem with the game is the theme. Kerberos is a video game development house, so I understand their background is different from the average board game designer. Sword of the Stars: Control! bills itself as "A fast-paced card game of planetary conquest." The names of the planets are ridiculous, and could just as easily be something far more pronounceable (even, say, planets in our solar system). When you move armies to a planet, you're moving "alien species capable of living and fighting well" on that particular planet. Where did these aliens come from? If you move an army of two cards, totaling say ten strength, you increase the "civilian population" of the planet by two, the number of cards you played. Where did these civilians come from? When you eliminate army cards from a planet, that action doesn't reduce the civilian population, so it's not the armies themselves. Nuking a planet "destroys all armies and civilians on a planet," but you can't play that card unless you have an army card to immediately play there. Who are these soldiers you're sentencing to a fallout-ridden world to do body cleanup?



This might seem like nitpicking, but there's intentional flavor in place here, and it doesn't make sense in the universe it's creating. There's no reason this couldn't be a game about colonizing our own solar system with each player taking control of a mega-corporation acquiring terraforming tech unique to each planet's atmosphere. It could also just as easily be about different species of pollinating insects dropping off unique flora to different regions of a farm. The game seems built to encourage direct conflict between players, and while that works within the game mechanics, it doesn't seem like design space was dedicated to much beyond that. It's a shame, because there's real potential here if the theme was more grounded.

Artwork and Components: There's not much art to speak of, which could very easily be due to the prototype and not indicative of the final design. Currently, each planet is a generic circle with a symbol superimposed over the top. Each of the cards contains only a number and that symbol. The box art shows planes, quadcopters, and tanks, but there's no in-game differentiation.



The components of the preview copy I have are placeholder, so I won't belabor that too much. The planets are a little big to keep in front of you if you control more than two or so. The civilization clips at the top of the planets are decent and don't suffer from the dreaded Betrayal at House on the Hill slippage.

The Good: Quick, satisfying gameplay. Spec Ops cards provide nice variety.

The Bad:
Theme is silly and inconsistent.

Score: Overall, Control! is in no way a bad game, it just feels it's just trying to be more than it is. If it embraced the simple nature of its gameplay, it would be a solid addition to anyone's quick-game collection. As it stands currently, there's not enough here to warrant a recommendation, but if the art, components, or theme change, it would be worthy of a look. I'm giving Sword of the Stars: Control! a score of Out of Control.

Sony quiere a sus superhéroes en el universo cinematográfico de Marvel#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000\

Sony tiene una misión: que los superhéroes cuyas licencias poseen terminen incluidos, de una forma u otra, en las películas de Marvel Studios

Sony lo apuesta todo a los superhéroes. O, al menos, eso se desprende de los nuevos movimientos de la productora de la firma, Sony Pictures Entertainment. Hoy se ha confirmado que Black Cat y Silver Sable, superheroinas que iban a coprotagonizar una película, tendrán ahora sus respectivos films independientes que se unirían a los centrados en Venom, Morbius, Kraven y Silk, ya anunciados. Evidentemente, la lista la termina de engrosar Spiderman: Far from Home.

Y es que, cabe recordar, los derechos cinematográficos de el hombre araña y el bautizado como Spiderverso (es decir, todos sus villanos y personajes relacionados) son propiedad de Sony Pictures Entertainment. Solo un trato histórico entre Kevin Feige y Amy Pascal, mediante el que Marvel podría utilizar su personaje estrella en su universo cinematográfico mientras la taquilla fuera a parar a los bolsillos de Sony, permitió que viéramos a Peter Parker rodeado del Capitán América, Thor, Iron Man y compañía.

A buen seguro, dicho precedente ha sido clave en la apertura de miras de Sony con respecto a las licencias que maneja, pues afirman estar dispuestos a que más personajes de este "universo Spiderman" tengan presencia el universo cinematográfico de Marvel. O, lo que es lo mismo, podríamos ver a Venom o Kraven enfrentándose al Spidey de Tom Holland en el futuro de la saga. ¿Pero qué hace falta para ello? Según parecen estar las piezas en el tablero, que Marvel acepte. Y eso no es tan sencillo como pueda parecer.

Marvel es conocida por el extremo control y supervisión de todos los proyectos que conforman el MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) por parte de Kevin Feige, productor que gestiona todo lo relacionado con las películas de la Casa de las Ideas bajo el amparo de Disney. Por contra, Sony parece estar apostando por una filosofía opuesta, teniendo cada proyecto su propio líder creativo y, por ende, siendo mucho más independientes entre sí: de esta forma, Palek Patel produce Venom y el film de Morbius mientras que Amy Pascal hace lo propio con Silk.

Esto, que no es algo negativo per se, sí que va en contra de la filosofía de cohesión y control de calidad de Marvel. Tanto es así que, por todos es sabido, el acuerdo para traer de vuelta a Spiderman estipulaba que Marvel Studios tendría el control creativo absoluto sobre las películas del personaje, pudiendo hacer y deshacer a su antojo. Por eso mismo parece complicado que, después de diez años de éxitos encadenados y estabilidad, la compañía fuera a incluir debajo de su paraguas personajes y películas desarrollados "por otros".

Sea como fuere, Sony no parece cejar en su empeño. De hecho, Venom, su próximo proyecto, encajará dentro de la calificación por edades PG-13 y no se irá a un rating para mayores de edad, algo que casaría a la perfección con el personaje, para poder mantener la posibilidad de integrar, de una forma u otra, al personaje en el MCU. ¿Adoptará Marvel personajes desarrollados fuera de su casa, como es el de la película protagonizada por Tom Hardy, y los integrará en su universo cinematográfico?

Parece pronto para responder a ello pero en Sony también parecen querer lo contrario: según el medio Collider, la compañía estaría abierta a que personajes venidos del universo cinematográfico de Marvel hicieron cameos en sus próximas películas. Algo que, de nuevo, podría no encajar del todo con la filosofía de Marvel, tan protectora de sus marcas y figuras y, sobre todo, conocedora de que sería Sony Pictures Entertainment quien más tendría que ganar en un movimiento de ese tipo.

Sea como fuere, la situación en el cine de superhéroes es del todo convulsa. La reciente adquisición de FOX por parte de Disney hace que Marvel Studios pueda jugar con licencias tan importantes como Los cuatro fantásticos y X-Men en su saga de películas al tiempo que, por su parte, Sony trabaja en hasta cinco películas de héroes y villanos del Spiderverso. Y mientras, claro, DC sigue por su cuenta. Tenemos superpoderes para rato.

Evaluate Your Day Before It Begins

“Was today a good day?” I crawled into bed and prepared to sleep, my mind anxiously evaluating the previous 24 hours. Using a haphazard set of metrics, I interrogated myself, “Was today a success? Did I accomplish my goals and get what I wanted?”

I never fall asleep quickly when my thoughts spiral like this. And any sleep that I get is not particularly restful. My problem is that I tend to overanalyze my day once it has ended.

Instead of this end-of-the-day anxious spiral, the psalmist provides believers with a confident prayer that flips worry on its head. Psalm 90:14 says, “Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” It is easy to read these nineteen words quickly, but this verse contains glorious truths that enable us to evaluate our day before it even begins.

Our Ultimate Request: Satisfy Us

That first word, satisfy, might be the most important word in this verse. At the start, the psalmist asks God to satisfy him, giving us both an example and permission to ask God to make us happy.

While our long lists of dissatisfactions often cause sleepless nights, our neediness and dependence unmistakably reveal the truth that we are not meant to achieve satisfaction on our own. In every circumstance, this psalm calls us to turn to the Lord and ask him to satisfy us.

What might a prayer for satisfaction in God look like in different circumstances? If we are disinterested or lethargic, we should ask God to fascinate and animate us. If we are bored or distracted, we should ask God to delight and captivate us. When we are lonely or miserable, we can ask God to accompany and comfort us.

Morning by Morning

While the others spend the entire day searching for satisfaction, God satisfies his children at the start of their day. Having received satisfaction from God in the morning, believers are liberated each day to glorify God.

This satisfaction of God sets us free to navigate our lives in faith. The world uses work to chase satisfaction through personal accomplishments. We are freed by God’s satisfaction, liberated to glorify God with our work and provide for our families.

The world uses recreation to chase satisfaction through the pursuit of pleasure. We are freed by God’s satisfaction, liberated to find joy whatever the circumstances. The world uses people to chase satisfaction through approval. We are freed by God’s satisfaction, liberated to glorify God by loving people — genuinely interacting and caring for them.

God’s love helps us receive and interpret our circumstances instead of having our hearts controlled by them. Rather than looking at our schedules and hoping for a good day, or creating a plan to make a good day, we look to the satisfying love of God that he generously offers each morning.

Steadfast and New

And we don’t need to wonder whether God’s love for us is going to fade or fail; God’s love is just as steadfast as he is. As Jeremiah wrote, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end.” God’s love and mercy, the prophet tells us, are “new every morning.”

We describe God’s love as both “steadfast” and “new” — a confusing pair of adjectives. But because God’s eternal nature never changes, his love toward his children is steadfast. And because God upholds the universe through new, creative energies that he inexhaustibly sustains (his gloriously plural, “mercies”), his love for his children is new every morning.

“The Lord is my portion,” the prophet concludes, so we can “hope in him.” (Lamentations 3:22–24). God gives us his merciful love each day; this is our daily baseline for hope.

Daily Satisfaction, Eternal Happiness

Normally, Hebrew poetry uses parallelism. That means that the Psalms make their point by using two (or more) closely corresponding lines. A strictly parallel reading leads us to expect the verse to say something like, “Satisfy us in the morning, that we may be glad till the evening.” If God satisfies us at the start of the day, we expect to remain happy until the day’s end.

Here, however, the psalmist surprises us. In a twist of gospel math, a daily (“in the morning”) prayer for satisfaction is answered by a lifetime (“all our days”) of joy and gladness.

How can one morning’s worth of satisfaction provide a lifetime of joy? Certainly some of the answer rests directly in the verse — God’s steadfast love will last our entire lives.

On Easter Morning

But the rest of the Bible explains this equation even more fully. One morning, the Lord Jesus Christ walked out of his grave, conquering sin and defeating death. And the resurrection power of the Son of God has been given to all God’s sons and daughters (Romans 8:11). So, now, because of that greatest morning of all, we can rejoice and be glad all of our days.

We don’t need to wait until an evening of anxious evaluation to determine whether today was a good day. God loves us with a steadfast love. The Lord Jesus conquered sin and death on Easter morning. And because we belong to him, today is a very good day.


          How Composer Daniel Hart Brought 'A Ghost Story' To Life      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Robin Hilton

The best film scores walk a delicate line: They help propel the story, guide an audience's emotions and are also often a distinct character, with a role and voice as important as any actor's — but they also have to do all that without getting in the way, or drawing too much attention.

For the deeply existential film A Ghost Story, from director David Lowery, composer Daniel Hart faced an additional hurdle: Much of the 90-minute movie unfolds without any dialogue and very little action, leaving large gaps of silence for him to fill and sustain the story.

A Ghost Story, roughly, is about a couple living in a house in the remote countryside that may be haunted, and the myriad stories that unfold there as other people come and go. But more than that, it's about the vast enormity of time with questions about reincarnation, time travel, life after death and parallel universes. The film also features a scene-stealing cameo by Bonnie "Prince" Billy and another brief appearance by Kesha.

The music Hart came up with is a breathtaking score as mysterious as the film's myriad meditations on life's most cosmic questions.

For this +1 edition of All Songs Considered, Daniel Hart talks about how he gave A Ghost Story it's most important voice and reveals some of the tricks he used to pull it off. You can hear the full interview, with music from the score, with the play button at the top of the page or read edited highlights below.


Daniel Hart on writing "I Get Overwhelmed," the pop song that inspired the entire score for A Ghost Story

"I wrote it at the beginning of 2015. I was spending so much time online, just into the night, like hours and hours, sometimes actually working but then sometimes just reading and poking around. And I just got to a place where I felt like the point of diminishing returns had definitely set in. And I was just totally preoccupied with everything that I was thinking about. I just had all these questions that started coming up into my head like, 'What what am I doing? Why am I making the choices that I'm making? Why are all these terrible things happening around the world? And I'm spending so much time reading about them — and what good does that do?' And I couldn't really make sense of any of that. So I wrote ['I Get Overwhelmed'] about it."

On the trick he used to create the film's ethereal, ambient soundscapes

"I took ['I Get Overwhelmed'] apart and I took the different parts of it and I ran it through this program called PaulStretch. And it's specifically designed to take music and make it incredibly slower so that it sounds like atmospheric soundscapes, because it's meant to slow something down. Like if something was three minutes long you can make it three hours long, you can make it three days long. Everything becomes a sort of long, languid musical phrase. And I took the separate elements of the song, like the strings or the guitar or my own vocals, and I ran them through PaulStretch to make these long soundscapes out of the different elements of the song, then used that as one of the recurring themes throughout the score."

On where he found the Latin lyrics for the choral pieces used in the score

"One of the other things that I figured out early on in the process was that this was going to be a score that needed vocals, that needed some kind of lyrics. I don't know if it was because in my mind I was trying to fill up the space that would have been filled by dialogue, but it was one of the things that became clear to me when I started. So I started looking for texts that were related to ghosts and then drawing lyrics from those texts, then writing music to go along with them. [I] hired a couple of choral singers in Dallas to do most of that work. I don't know why [I chose] Latin. But I liked the way it sounds — and there's [also] a little bit of the Tibetan Book Of The Dead. And you know they're just part of the larger piece, so they're not upfront and center like they might be if it were a song."

Je ne parle pas du remplacement de l'appendice nasal mais certains chercheurs ont le nez creux : une entreprise située à Grenoble a finalisé des détecteurs d’odeurs.
De la bonne conservation des aliments dans le frigo à la propreté des toilettes publiques, les exploitations sont immenses.

La startup Aryballe voulait venir en aide aux personnes souffrant d’anosmie. Ce trouble de l’odorat, qui se manifeste par un défaut de sensibilité aux odeurs, affecte 2% de la population française et jusqu’à 15% des seniors.
Tour de force technique, l’entreprise grenobloise a miniaturisé un enregistreur de laboratoire d’1 m3 en un petit détecteur portable avec   écran. L'appareil pas plus gros qu’un aspirateur de table, pourra renifler les odeurs et signaler si le lait a tourné, si la soupe sent le moisi ou, plus grave, s’il y a une fuite de gaz. Sa commercialisation a débuté  fin 2017.

Votre hotte de cuisine pourrait vous prévenir si votre steak brûle sur la poêle. Dans l’espace public, des détecteurs placés dans les toilettes publiques sentiront quand le seuil d’odeur acceptable est dépassé et préviendront l’équipe de nettoyage pour intervention.

[...]Les "nez électroniques" font leur apparition dans les smartphones. Ces dispositifs  s'inspirent du système olfactif des animaux. Ils sont issus des recherches en nanotechnologies. Ces nouveaux capteurs identifient toutes sortes d’odeurs, les polluants, les explosifs et nous alerteront aussi en cas de maladies graves.

Depuis des années, les chercheurs en informatique travaillent à la mise au point de capteurs portatifs permettant de traiter et d’analyser les données issus de notre environnement immédiat. Des détecteurs qui complètent les 5 sens que nous possédons, c'est-à-dire voir, sentir, toucher, goûter et entendre.

Les systèmes de reconnaissance vocale sont bien aboutis, nous conversons sans problème avec nos ordinateurs ou nos smartphones qui nous comprennent parfaitement. Le toucher fonctionne à merveille sur les écrans tactiles des mobiles ou sur nos tablettes. Nos appareils sont dotés du sens de la vue grâce aux caméras et permettent aux systèmes de vidéosurveillance, avec leurs logiciels de reconnaissance des visages, de nous identifier.

Le goût aussi fait l’objet de recherche dans le domaine des interfaces homme-machine. Reste maintenant à mettre au point des détecteurs d’odeurs, qui devront reconnaître des polluants, repérer les traces aériennes d’explosifs ou de détecter la présence de gaz mortel inodore dans l’atmosphère. Les "nez électroniques ", déjà développés, sont destinés à des usages spécifiques, notamment militaires lors des opérations de déminage. Ils sont aussi utilisés par les agents de la sécurité civile dans les aéroports lors d’une alerte à la bombe.

Depuis peu, des micro-capteurs et diffuseurs d’odeurs sont intégrés à nos smartphones avec des applications comme l'oPhone, qui permettent d’envoyer des SMS agrémentés d'un parfum sélectionné par vos soins. Renifler de bons petits plats est aussi possible grâce au programme Smell-o-Vision pour recevoir sur son téléphone un aperçu olfactif des plats que propose le restaurant d’un grand chef étoilé espagnol. Dans les laboratoires, des puces capables d’analyser la composition chimique d’odeurs subtiles, aussi performantes que la truffe d’un chien, sont à l’étude. Elles présentent une sensibilité exceptionnelle, et décèlent en temps réel les changements du métabolisme de son porteur, mesurent par exemple son taux de glycémie ou d’alcoolémie. Des senseurs renifleurs universels qui permettront d’apprécier la qualité de l’air d’une ville, d’analyser la fraîcheur des aliments et de sentir votre haleine afin d’établir un diagnostic médical complet. Des nez électroniques 100% fiables bientôt dans nos smartphones qui, contrairement aux humains, n’ont aucune chance d’attraper, même au printemps, le rhume des foins."[...]  in rfi.fr © 2018 Copyright RFI

Yesterday was my birthday and I turned 66.

Another 6 to that score and I could terrorise Robert and his imaginary friends.



Richard phoned me on my birthday - well, the day before actually as I think he was going to be working on Wednesday but it was good to chat .....UP TO A POINT!

The point was when the silly old bugger said something about a final countdown (he also turns 66 in a few days time). He said that our parents generally lived to about 80 give or take a few years and that for us, that was only 14 years away.

What a bundle of joy.


The problem is though that he's right.

We are all going to die and that's final.. kaput...finito ....gone ... regardless of what Robert and his silly religious beliefs say about 'everlasting life' and a time after we die ' living with our creator'.

Bollocks.

We will be gone ... finito ... kaput ... worm fodder or returned to the universe as smoke.

For me another 14 years is probably correct.

The key to this is having a good 14 years and not a fucking miserable 14 years being ill and infirm.

I enjoy my wine and the better the wine ... well, the better. I'm not going to eke out my last few years drinking crap plonk in cleanskin bottles.

I don't overeat (The Old Girl would disagree) and I don't get all crazy about food. I like to buy small amounts of high quality produce and cook it well (the less meat the better).

I'm lazy - have been all of my life but I was a reasonable athlete and even if I don't run marathons or jog I like to go walking and play a few sports commensurate with my age. At present (66 y.o) this is tennis, golf, bowls, badminton and tomorrow, trying out 'pickleball' at the local community centre.




I try to keep my mind active by community work (committees and projects), reading, crosswords and other word games and, believe it or not - blogging.

I'm still going to be wormfood in a few years but I'm damned if I'll go out like a wuss. An old wuss.
I'll keep doing the things that I enjoy as long as I enjoy doing them and I'll keep doing physical activity even after I stop enjoying it to keep my aged body in reasonable nick.


Today I played tennis for a couple of hours then went to the gym for some aerobic and anaerobic exercise before a light lunch and then outdoor bowls. It wasn't exactly an Olympic athletes's workout but it was enough to make me feel better than if I'd sat around all day.


***************** 

This afternoon I mixed up lamb mince, sausage meat and various vegetables, herbs and spices to make a meatloaf mix which I put in the freezer in 5 portions. I'm having salmon rissoles, mini roast potatoes and a rocket, pear and Parmesan salad for tea which is all very good but I'm spoiling all of that good exercise by imbibing a Squawking Magpie 2016 Chardonnay while writing this and before my meal.

Oh well ...... as Richard says ..... I'll be dead soon.

You’re a worse confidence/faith man than Bernie Madoff. He just destroyed people’s money. You want to cripple people’s minds.
As I pointed out... "Con man philosphical naturalists do exactly the same thing… they just don’t admit to it. Philosophical naturalism… or the belief that the natural world is all that exists is the foundation of all ‘scientific’ theories… it is required by definition. This means that ‘science’ can never propose any explanation or theory that is not completely ‘natural’. No matter how incredible and impossible to observe." Creationists have more intellectual freedom than philosophical naturalists because they have the freedom to conclude that something they observe (like life or the universe) does not have a 'natural' origin. Philosophical naturalists have no freedom to accept anything other than a 'natural' explanation no matter how incredible and impossible to observe... it is your mind that is crippled by your 'a priori' assumptions... not mine...
          Report: Spider-Man Universe Movie Silver & Black Cancelled      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

As part of the deal Sony made with Marvel Studios over the character Spider-Man, Sony planned to use the inevitable success of a Marvel Cinematic Universe-tied Spider-Man movie to make other movies in the universe of Spider-Man Homecoming. One of these is the upcoming Venom, while another planned project was Silver & Black, a buddy-cop movie with Black Cat and Silver Sable.

According to Variety, the movie has been put on ice and split apart to two separate movies. That means that separate Black Cat and Silver Sable movies are joining the currently in-development Morbius, Kraven the Hunter, Silk, Jackpot, and Nightwatch movies in Sony's Spider-Man universe roster at various states of progress.

“We believe Black Cat is enough of her own character with a great backstory and a canon of material to draw from to justify her own film,” president of Columbia Pictures Sanford Panitch told Variety.

Venom releases in theaters on October 5. Spider-Man will (presumably) play some role in the next Avengers film scheduled for May.

The animated features are all well and good, but people want live action these days and without it the DC universe is quickly falling behind.

PSYCHOTRONICS AND THE SECRET ORDER

H.P. Albarelli, Jr.’s journey into the strange quirks and oddities he had discovered about the many people somehow associated with the assassination of President John Kennedy on November 22, 1963 is referred to as “high strangeness and synchronicity.” Michael Petro referred to it as “curious scraps of information.” Indeed, the numerous references to the many faces somehow connected to Kennedy (Lee Oswald, the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA], the Mob, the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI], and others) were often a bog of facts and comments, though tantalizing and dramatic, still seemed to be a jungle of confusing loose ends.

To purchase this book from AMAZON.COM simply click on its title: A Secret Order: Investigating the High Strangeness and Synchronicity in the JFK Assassination

PSYCHOTRONICS

The early part of the book was an attempt in tracing the dawn of psychiatry in the 1940s and 1950s leading to Intelligence Programs such as the CIA’s top-secret Projects MK/Naomi, MK/Ultra, and Project Artichoke.

“The CIA and the military, which were quickly drawn to the Program,” said Abarelli, “were becoming intrigued with the possibilities of creating what were then referred to as ‘aggressive soldiers’ and now are called ‘super soldiers.’”

Albarelli outlined a number of covert Intelligence Programs that could have been bedrock for “Manchurian Candidate” experiments of young children and the populace in general. Fort Detrick’s Special Operations (SO) Division is mentioned, the Office of Strategic Operations (OSS), agent George Hunter White, and the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN).

The author suspected that Oswald could likely have been an early victim of such programs while at a detention center called Youth House. Oswald could have possibly entered into a psychotronic relationship with psychiatrists and covert operations. Doctor Milton Kurian and Dr. Renatus Hartogs were psychiatrists that connected with Oswald at Youth House. Hartogs had previously worked at the Allen Memorial Institute, Montreal, Canada, where Doctor D. Ewen Cameron, in the mid-1950s under a covert MK/Ultra contract with the CIA, “conducted a series of horrific drug and sensory deprivation experiments on unwitting patients.”

MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE

LaurEnce HarvEy, in film,  foreshadows LEE Harvey a whole year before the JFK Assassination

*******

New York Post reporter Joseph Wershba questioned Dr. Hartogs on December 14, 1967 as to whether or not Oswald could have been a "Manchurian Candidate" (referring to a 1962 film on controlled soldiers).

Although his log seemed to dismiss such an allegation, Hartogs moved in circles of covert ML/Ultra and MK/Naomi and the “drug parties” of Dr. Harold A. Abramson.

Dr. Hartogs was an “aficionado” of magic and a covert contractor for the CIA. He was acquainted with magician John Mulholland who wrote a manual for CIA operatives containing instructions on how to “surreptitiously dose unwitting people with drugs, and how to perform other feats of slight-of-hand.” The Hartogs/Freeman book, The Two Assassins, told of Oswald’s comments to his mother Marguerite concerning his return from Russia: “Mother, not even Marina knows why I returned.”

Dr. Hartogs’s sexual scandal with his patient Julie Roy seemed to coincide with the sexual scandal of Canadian psychiatrist Dr. James Tyhurst. Tyhurst associated with neuropsychologist Dr. Donald O. Hebb and “both attended a seminal 1951 meeting,” said Abarelli, “which included participants from the CIA – to discuss early advancements in sensory deprivation and brainwashing.”

Investigator Dick Russell noted Hartogs’s interest in hypnotism (p. 53), as told by Dr. Milton V. Kline, authority on hypnotism and CIA cohort on Project Artichoke and MK/Ultra.

Kline also disclosed that Hartogs, along with Dr. Sidney Malitz (a psychiatrist at the New York State Psychiatric Institute [NYSPI]) and Dr. Paul Hoch (NYSPI research director) were involved in a number of covert contracts with the CIA and the U.S Army “to perform experiments with psychosurgery, electroconvulsive therapy, LSD, mescaline, and other drugs.” Hartogs worked with Malitz on some of these experiments. Dr. Malitz worked with Fort Detrick’s Special Operations Division. These experiments were with unwitting patients, “children and teenagers.”  Harold Blauer died because of such experiments. The CIA selected a group of 100 patients to join in these episodes (p.35). Lee Harvey Oswald was absent from school for at least 50 days while in New York City.

ALLEN DULLES

In the early 1950s, hypnotist George Estabrook wrote to CIA director Allen Dulles about the merits of hypnosis in covert operations.

“The CIA, U.S Army Fort Detrick, the Edgewood Arsenal, and the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) funded many of these contracts. Chief among these physicians were: Drs. Bernard Withens, Harold Esecover, and Harold A. Abramson.”

Dr. Lauretta Bender, a child neuropsychistrist at the New York City Bellevue Hospital, experimented extensively on children using electroshock treatment, “DE patterning” and “annihilation.”  Also involved was Dr. D. Ewen Cameron, who would eventually head the MK/Ultra subproject 68.

Dr. Leon Eisenberg spoke of Bender’s patients in these experiments as “…psychotic and perhaps worse off than before the treatment.”

H.P. Albarelli Jr. (photo on the left) is a writer and investigative journalist who lives in Vermont, Florida, and London (U.K.). He has written numerous feature articles about the 9-11 anthrax attacks; biological warfare; the American intelligence community; the death of Frank Olson; the Cuban revolution; and social and political affairs. Some of his work can be found at the World Net Daily, Cuba net, Counterpunch, and Crime Magazine websites, as well as in numerous magazines and newspapers.

Allbarelli ventured through several interesting episodes that the reader would best explore.  One such incident concerned Marguerite Oswald’s interview by Davis Eugene Boster, a life-long Foreign Service officer and covert CIA operative within the State Department. At one point, he was a staff assistant to Secretary of State John Foster Dulles.

The interview also included State Department employees Denman F. Stanfield and Edward J. Hickey. Part of the conversation went:

Marguerite:  “Now I know you are not going to answer me gentlemen, but I am under the impression that my son is an agent.”

Boster:   “Do you mean a Russian agent?”

Marguerite:   “No, working for our Government, a U.S agent.”

Marguerite also explained to the Warren Commission:

“And this is the way I think, because I happen to know all of the other things that you don’t know

- the life and everything … And I can almost back it up with things…

Yes, sir, I think my son was an agent. I certainly do.” (p. 64.)

 

Lee Oswald, from 1957 to1958, was stationed at Atsugi Naval Air Base, Japan, a huge underground 50-acre CIA-USAF Air Base, conducting air traffic control for U-2s flying over Chna an the Soviet Union, at a time when Operation Artichoke physicians and technicians conducted “enhanced interrogations” <torture> at the base.

MULTIPLE DIMENSIONS OF MEANING

 

Albarelli told of Oswald’s appearances at East Louisiana State Hospital ...  

He also went through episodes involving psychiatrists Dr. Robert G. Heath, Dr. Frank Silva and Dr. Alfred T. Butterworth and their contributions to psychotronics. Albarelli told about the further mysterious workings of Archcha Smith, David Ferrie, Ferrie’s Civilian Air Patrol (CAP), detective Jack S. Martin, CIA operative June Cobb, and a mysterious Rose Cherami who also had been a patient at the East Louisiana State Hospital in 1961.

“The Oswald sighting at the East Louisiana State Hospital seems cut and dry, but as with most events concerning Oswald,” said Albarelli, “the facts surrounding dwell in another realm of ambiguity and interconnectedness, an alternate universe clouded by high strangeness where everything has multidimensions of meaning and truth.”

 

Image result for rose cheramie

Rose Cheramie foretold the assassinatio of JFK to doctors

at East Louisana State Hospital

ROSE CHERAMIE

Albarelli had an interesting chapter on Rose Cherami (Melba Christine Marcades), mystery woman, hooker, and drug addict, who was committed to the East Louisiana State Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi following an auto accident on Highway 190. The state hospital was infamous in the annuals of the Kennedy assassination.  Rose Cherami seemed to have been housed in several CIA-infiltrated facilities over the years.

Louisiana detective Lt. Francis Paul Fruge investigated Cheramie the day before the Kennedy assassination.  While in the hospital, Cherami told Dr. Don Bowers that Kennedy was going to be murdered in Dallas.

Cheramie had once worked for Jack Ruby in Dallas as a stripper and “drug courier.”  She said he had seen Oswald with Ruby. She also contended that Ruby was involved in the planned assassination.  Rose Cheramie died from another auto accident on September 4, 1965.

Dallas police were not interested in Cheramie’s testimony (p. 97), but Rose had quite a bit to say about drug trafficking in Texas.

Albarelli continued into her career that connected “to yet another unsolved murder – that of Houston police detective Martin A. Billnitzer – and therefor to the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, George Hunter White, and the CIA…”

The Texas drug-trafficking scenario involved corruption throughout the state, CIA “Executive Action” <5412 Committee) contractor Jean Pierre Lafittie, CIA officials in “hypnotism training,” MK/Ultra, the findings of New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, and the criminal involvement of Sergio Arcacha Smith and Emilio Santana.

“Billnitzer apparently committed suicide (shot himself twice) in his office the morning after being interviewed (by police investigators)…” (p. 115.) “…drugs put back on the street through the back door of the Houston Police Department but Billnitzer expanded his chief objective was to get these drugs off the streets permanently…” (p. 103.)

          VACCINATIONS: REAL CONCERN OR JUST PROPAGANDA Part 1      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

It looks like if logic has left the room or maybe it has left the planet to see if there are other life forms elsewhere in the Universe. The latest us versus them mentality now involves vaccinations. When it comes to adults it should be left to the individual to get vaccinated or not. As for school aged children it should be left in the hands of the parents to decide not some tribunal or special interest group who sees a number that brings in cash for them not an individual.

A question I ask is how a vaccinated person is in danger from those who aren't? There must be a contradiction here as isn't what vaccinations are for to protect people from whatever diseases are here or coming? There must be an Orwellian expression coming to us soon involving health or illness.

In human history there has, probably always will be, some "god" that the majority of people worship whether they admit to it or not. It can be one of the religions that have passed through our history. Some have stayed longer than others or been around longer than necessary. Science has taken on religious overtones of its own. The medical field is now taken on aspects of religious worship they expect from the great unwashed. Basically their mantra is do as we say, follow our orders without question, believe in the god  we've created for you to worship without question. If you dare to question us or don't do what we expect of you then we will assign you to the Hell we have created for you. Like the line from the Simon and Garfunkel song Sound of Silence; "And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made."

All in the name of getting the world's population to becoming obedient robots or sheeple. We need to learn how to think, ask tough questions before we become brainwashed from cradle to grave, living just to obey orders. It has me wonder just how much hypnotic social programming is happening in our world.

An article I read in early spring struck me as being quite ironic. Los Alamos, New Mexico has the highest rate of non-vaccinated children; their parents apparently work at the Los Alamos labs. Why is this? What do these parents know that we don't? Could it be that they know what is in the vaccine? A reason I won't take a vaccination shot is that I want to know what is going into my body. It sounds like the lab workers do and won't let their children be immunized as a result. So why the big push to vaccinate the rest of us?

The human species has been a hardy bunch over the centuries if not eons. We've survived much in the way of epidemics, wars, the Great Depression, what Mother Nature has thrown our way in weather patterns. Yet we have kept on bouncing back time and time again. For how many years have we survived without being vaccinated? Again I ask why the push now for mandatory vaccinations? We are living longer but is the quality of life improved? We'll never do away with disease at any time in our history. Disease will just come back in stronger strains. Then what?

Your body is your own, only you can decide what goes into it. That is unless you believe the State owns your body and can do anything it wants to it. Instead of using good stuff like education, developing reasoning skills and proper good nutrition, Big Nanny will use fear to get us to succumb to group think, peer pressure and blindly following orders. Will Paradise become Hell or Hell become Paradise?

This issue shouldn't revolve around mandatory vaccinations but to provide other solutions. Eating wholesome food, drinking clean water, suitable sanitation, easing overcrowding, try to eliminate poverty as much as possible are better goals to aim for. Yet the "experts" and their minions think a shot in the arm is better. I guess it's all in the name of forcing us into herd mentality and eliminate freedom of choice.

It's all in the name of making the big bucks therefore more huge profits for the medical cartels. In turn I'm beginning to think we are little more than lab rats for Big Pharma and their employees aka doctors. When the truth isn't faced, things become part of the problem not the solution.

          THE MULTIDIMENSIONAL (TIME) TRAVELER?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Often, after waking up from a night of traveling, I find myself immersed in thoughts of why most people tend to fear the unknown and choose to live in oblivion. Perhaps ignorance is indeed bliss. But what is bliss if it deprives us of the truth of our potential?

Our lives attain structure from phenomena that we are able to explain and see in the physic al body; and it is through fragments of human creation, such as the concept of time, that we have come to construe what is possible and what is impossible, and likewise - what characterizes the truth and what is deemed as ‘absurdity.’


by Khartika Goe


Nevertheless, constantly questioning our existence on this planet we call home undoubtedly remains part of human nature. Karma, reincarnation, and the human life cycle are all concepts that many individual s spend countless hours of their lives on Earth curiously pondering over. But, as residents of this planet, we often find our thoughts and attempts at forming an understanding scathed by the limits of our physicality. Distracted and misled by the hustle and bustle of the everyday physical life, our true essence - that of the energetic - is placed aside to be boxed, meticulously taped shut, and then left neglected in a dusty, unkempt corner within a forgotten abyss of our mind.

However, our mind, like our soul, is indestructible, inc omprehensible and incalculable. However, within it our energetic potential lies. Governed by our thoughts and the mind’s alignment with the heart, a successful elevation of our vibrational frequencies can occur—the cornerstone of attaining multidimensional travels to the higher dimensions of love and light.

The undeniable truth is that we are all energetic beings composed of energies, rhythms and vibrations, living in an energetic world. It is not until we learn to cast aside our physical encasements that we will begin to discover the true knowledge behind the seeming “mysteries” of the universe.

Scientists of planet Earth have made incredible strides in the study of the mind; however, they have seemingly failed to convey to people all of what they would be capable of achieving by simply learning to expand their consciousness. While the unconscious constitutes the majority of the mind, it leaves only a meager percentage to the consciousness, making the realization of our energetic abilities and the recollection of our multidimensional experiences even more of a challenge. With this knowledge, it is vital that individuals learn how to maintain control of their thoughts, as well as bolster their level of consciousness so that they can travel energetically in full awareness.

Mainstream thought has long regarded what is known as the dream state to be the unconscious. This assumption, however, is greatly falsified. Many of us have indeed found ourselves able to sense feelings or emotions (both those of the positive nature as well as those of the negative) upon waking up from our sleep, and this argument alone contradicts the basic assumption that humans remain entirely unconscious during the state of sleep. How are some people able to retain fragments of their dreams if they have remained entirely unconscious during this dream state? These faulty allegations, unless dismissed, constitute an unfortunate burden on the true meaning of being able to freely travel multidimensionally-the ability to remember one’s travels and remain entirely conscious while doing so.

The will of the mind, much like the steering wheel of a car, provides us with the ability to focus on reaching any destination of a desired course of action in our travels, regardless what the circumstances may be. The force of will, a force that can be resonated throughout your entire being while skillfully remaining undetected by the physical senses, reconnects our thought waves with the energetic components that vibrate throughout this universe. This force of will, much like the oxygen humans breathe, is a force that is readily available for anyone’s use as long as they remain entirely focused on their intentions to do so.

When we wish to travel multidimensionally and to remain conscious while doing so, it is important that we acknowledge the availability of such a force and use it to fuel our intentions towards being able to consciously remember every detail of our travels. Although this concept may seem difficult to understand at this moment, you will come to recognize it after you have fully acknowledged its existence and eventually be able to utilize it to manifest the outcome you desire in any situation of your own life.

There exist many universes, galaxies, and planets that have yet to be discovered and explored; and through discipline and practice, each and every one of us can regain the ability to travel energetically wherever we choose to visit. The ability to travel multidimensionally to the vast dimensional existences through the usage of the energetic body is by no means one that is marked by exclusivity- it is universal amongst all beings and transgresses across all boundaries of age, culture, location, and education.

          ALWAYS SOME ISSUE TO DEAL WITH...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I was reading a daily newspaper out of Vancouver B.C. a few weeks ago. My favourite part is the Backchat in the opinion section. Every day readers can respond to a question that is posted in the previous days paper. The editors asked to the effect that scientists think there are a few plausible ways that could kill life on Earth, which I'll give my take on some of them below. It seems this topic brings out the cynical "I've heard it all before" attitude. I don't let the cynicism get to me a lot anymore as I miss out on the humour that is involved.

One way that was suggested was an asteroid striking Planet Earth. I find this one quite feasible. With all that is moving about in space, I'm surprised that nothing big has struck the surface of the planet in thousands of years which has defied some incredible odds.

The second one was intelligent machines killing us off, a scary thought in light of what of Stephen Hawking said recently. Bearing in mind that I can't see machines being any smarter than their creators, where would these robots get a life force that keeps humans alive and kicking? Imagine the horror involved if an army of armed emotionless robots bearing down on unarmed civilians?

A plague could be it but I would question if it would be a natural occurring one that those in charge would capitalize on to get the population into fear mode big time. Or would it be a man made disease created in a control centre?

Nuclear war is a distinct possibility. Is there a psychopath out there who would think nothing of pressing a button that would destroy all life and the planet itself? What would be accomplished then? When life after humans happens how would Mother Nature deal with the nuclear facilities still in operation?

Climate change might not be a factor as much as some think. No matter what opinion one has of the human race, we can be pretty hearty at times proving the theory of adaptability has some merit to it.

The best one in humorous terms is God hitting the off switch. The one liners that could be used here is a stand up comics dream. I can see God saying; "Enough of this folks, show time is over."

Of course people will come come up with other ideas on how things will end. I don't put much stock on biblical/religious agendas or an alien angle as a lot of it is pretty far out material which could be mostly speculation or wishful thinking. As far as I'm concerned these two groups are great at making things up as they go along or working backwards from a fabricated answer they've created to fit the question they have phrased so carefully.

The answer to this question of life ending on the planet is probably right under our noses, happening as we live despite the majority ignoring it. It could happen prior to the sun turning into a supernova or fossil fuels running out and there isn't enough of anything else to replace it. There is a lot of the fear factor used by those really in charge to stifle most humans from asking tough questions to find out what exactly what the truth is.

How much of the above is going to happen is anyones guess. I believe the planet we're on won't end in the physical sense but the human race will at some point. I have concluded that whatever is running the Universe doesn't have a preference for mankind over another species, Mother Nature will reclaim the planet and other species will replace us.


          THE AKASHIC RECORDS DO EXIST!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Edgar Cayce tapped into it. Many people who meditate have made claim that they tapped into the Akashic Records. Third eyes were open for various hippies who experimented with hallucinogenics during the 60s and they may have tapped into the Akashic Records. 

Click here to enlarge top photo.

The Akashic Records is universal knowledge. The Akashic Records is an assortment of knowledge that comes from all thinking living creatures that exist in our vast universe. All living creatures that have the ability to think, communicate and dream contribute to the Akashic Records. That is why people who have experienced near death will mention that they witnessed their whole life in its entirety as a flash before their eyes. Everyone’s life, even an animal’s life is recorded in the Akashic Records. This live review is a phenomenon widely reported as occurring during near-death experiences, in which a person rapidly sees much or the totality of their life history in chronological sequence and in extreme detail. 

The Akashic Records is all around us, it’s God’s Mind. When people say that God is all knowing, omniscient, it’s because knowledge is all around us. We have the ability to take our cell phones and tap into the Internet and acquire knowledge, but it’s a little bit harder to tap into the hidden knowledge of the Akashic Records, it requires the opening of the third eye. If we were able to tap into the Akashic Records, it would be able to tell us the true identity of Jack the Ripper. Whatever you are ashamed of, would be revealed. Who killed Kennedy? The answers are in the Akashic Records. All hidden and forbidden information can be obtained in the Akashic Records. 

Since dreams, thoughts and verbal communication are part of our minds, our brain waves, this energy is saved in the Akashic Records. Our actions and daily movement is recorded via light, because light reflects off a person, place or thing, our actions are recorded by light forever. This light recording of our actions is placed in the Akashic Records. You were mad at your boss and you started writing him a nasty email. You thought about it and deleted that email. That email still exists in the Akashic Records and it also exists in cyberspace, because what you wrote in an email (even if you deleted it) travels on radio waves into outer space and the thought that you used to write that email is recorded in the Akashic Records. When Edgar Cayce went into his trance, he was tapping into the Akashic Records. When Steve Jobs uses Zen meditation, he is tapping into the Akashic Records. When hippies talked about seeing strange creatures on their acid trips, they were most likely tapping into the Akashic Records and looking into another dimensional realm. 

The technical advancements of other alien races are all recorded in the Akashic Records. Our geniuses on Earth may not realize it, but they may actually be tapping into the Akashic Records and obtaining knowledge to better mankind. As I wrote this, I went into deep thought before writing and I may have tapped into the surface of the Akashic Records. Yes, I believe whole heartedly that the Akashic Records exist. To be illuminated, one must be connected spiritually to the Akashic Records.

          U2’s Dark Night of the Soul      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Vinyl reissues of Achtung Baby, Zooropa, and The Best of 1980-1990. by Ned Lannamann

Creativity and commerce have always had a touchy relationship. During the frustratingly infrequent occasions when they do get along, everything seems to make a little more sense. But there are only a handful of times when the biggest musical act in the world is functioning at the peak of its artistic powers: The Beatles did it in the mid-’60s, Stevie Wonder in the ’70s, and Beyoncé in the last few years.

U2 managed it in the early ’90s, and the Irish quartet’s case is a strange one. By the end of the ’80s, Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. had already experienced massive success and backlash, with 1987’s The Joshua Tree delivering them to every radio dial in the universe and 1988’s bloated Rattle and Hum exposing the limitations of their ambition. Perhaps as a form of self-preservation, they abandoned their ongoing fascination with America for an unorthodox next move: descending into the after-hours discothèques of post-Berlin-Wall Europe and embracing rock-star decadence. New double-vinyl reissues of 1991’s Achtung Baby and 1993’s Zooropa sum up this fruitful, eccentric period; they’re accompanied by a 1998 greatest-hits collection, The Best of 1980-1990, which puts a cap on the era that led up to it.

It’s hard to imagine what a shock Achtung Baby must have been to U2’s mainstream audience—here was a clanging, ultra-modern rock record informed by industrial and dance music. Gone were the Edge’s chiming, canyonesque guitars in favor of blaring blots of noise; Mullen’s martially precise drumbeats had Hulked out into ironwork dance grooves; Bono’s unmistakable heldentenor forwent earnest lyrics about politics and Jesus, opting instead to purr and groan about sex.



But while it’s probably impossible to hear massive hits like “One” and “Mysterious Ways” with fresh ears, the new vinyl reissue emphasizes the thick momentum of the group’s newfound sound. Achtung Baby stands as U2’s most unimpeachable work, with zero weak tracks and a dark, Dionysian vibe that’s seductive and soulful. The album’s deep cuts might be the best ones: “So Cruel” and “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)” tingle with the fervor and fire of U2’s fantastic early work, even as they glisten with nocturnal debauchery.

Twenty months later, they delivered Zooropa, which began life as a throwaway EP and blossomed into U2’s wildest album. This was during their never-ending “Zoo TV” tour, which was based around a globe-spanning theme of satellite TV and information overload. The massive undertaking both inspired and bruised the band; Bono started to cope by wearing devil horns onstage. He sings Zooropa’s “Lemon” in a screeching falsetto, the Edge mumbles the monotone “Numb,” and Johnny Cash takes over the mic for the space-lounge bounce of closing track “The Wanderer.” But for all its weird novelties, Zooropa remains a sensational, invigorating listen.



“Daddy’s Gonna Pay for Your Crashed Car” is Zooropa’s masterstroke. Beginning with an Eastern Bloc military fanfare before launching into an apocalypse-furnace drumbeat, Bono’s voice flutters and distorts before your ears, seeming to come from inside your head for certain lines, and broadcasting from a distant planet for others. The lyrics are about a poor little rich girl, but they could just as easily be about the singer’s self-disgust and his need for a higher power to ease the burden of sin. “Daddy won’t let you weep/Daddy won’t let you ache/Daddy gives you as much as you can take,” Bono sputters.

“Stay (Faraway, So Close!)” is disguised as a big, soaring ballad in the spirit of classic U2, but it’s much more than that: A world-weary, last-call lament, it’s a better song than “One” and the emotional high point of the band’s long, dark journey into night. Zooropa is evidence of U2’s massive inventiveness, even as their spirits were being crushed under the pressure of being the biggest band in the world. They would never sound quite so curious again.

Another new vinyl release, the 16-track The Best of 1980-1990, is a glancing overview of U2’s metastasis from scrappy post-punk upstarts to stadium-sized megalodons. It’s heavy on the obvious hits, with four songs apiece from The Joshua Tree and Rattle and Hum. It’s a shame more space wasn’t devoted to their first three exceptional albums—1980’s Boy, 1981’s October, and 1983’s War—or to any of their early non-album singles and B-sides, which are ripe for rediscovery.

But hearing formative hits like “I Will Follow” and “New Year’s Day” in this setting is a reminder of how good U2 were from the start, and why they were so perfectly positioned for massive success. The title track from 1984’s The Unforgettable Fire could be the compilation’s greatest surprise for newcomers; rarely heard on American radio, the song is a powerhouse with symphonic pomp, avant-garde flourishes, and melodic urgency. The rest of 1980-1990 only leaves the listener hungry for a proper overview of U2’s early-’80s prime.



The new pressings aren’t flawless. My copy of Achtung Baby arrived with a small dish-warp, although it sounds stunning. And The Best of 1980-1990 has continual surface noise, audible in between tracks and during quieter songs like “October.”

But the mastering is excellent across the board: Achtung Baby and Zooropa, which are built on busy, claustrophobic sound, are provided a massive soundstage to roam, and they sound infinitely more airy and dynamic than the CDs most people heard in the ’90s. And Adam Clayton’s bass is thrillingly massive, particularly during “Mysterious Ways” and Zooropa’s “Some Days Are Better Than Others.” recommended

If you print enough of these two parts you can fill up the universe!

One scutoid is actually a pentagon to rhombus transition (5-->4) instead of the typical hexagon to pentagon transition (6-->5).

I'm still uncertain if the geometric definition of a scutoid has been solidified. From my understanding a scutoid is: a shape which transitions from a many sided face to a face of less sides by means of a truncated vertex.

This four cell configuration (the two parts are radially symmetrical) fits within a Cairo pentagonal tiling motif.

81. Golden Veil You're probably right. Since Dorian's meeting a couple years ago when he predicted/announced that the intellect would no longer be needed in the "new phase" of the FF, which was to begin soon, Burton has been on somewhat of a rampage getting rid of people he deems to be unfaithful. People who don't go to enough meetings. People who don't believe Burton is the highest being on the planet, now and over the past 2000 years. People who find it less than credible that the universe himself (Mr. Absolute) likes to visit Burton at Apollo, especially when Burton's dogs are pooping in the garden. And now for the latest that's going around (watch out all you doubting followers!): that The Absolute and Burton "crystallized" together, which sort of makes them like twin Absolutes, or parallel universes.

Spider-Man: Far From Home cast, release date, filming, villains and everything else we know about Spidey's next big swing

Spider-Man: Far From Home will launch Phase 4 of the MCU, picking up wherever Avengers 4 leaves us, and forming the middle chapter of a new Spidey trilogy. So far we've seen Tom Holland's gawky teen Peter Parker adjusting to his new powers in three seperate Marvel movies, but what does the future hold for him now that his origin story is fully told? 

Far From Home is currently in production but details are already coming through thick and fast - with plenty of knock-on rumours about Avengers 4 and the rest of the MCU. Check back here for regular updates and any Spidey news as we get it.

Spoilers to follow for Avengers: Infinity War.  

Spider-Man: Far From Home cast

Tom Holland is back as Peter Parker (obvs), but he's not the only returning cast-member from Homecoming

Michael Keaton is confirmed to return as Vulture, Zendaya is still MJ and Marisa Tomei is still Aunt May. Jacob Batalon is also back as Peter's best friend, Ned, with Tony Revolori returning as Parker's school rival, Flash. 

Interestingly though, Samuel L Jackson and Cobie Smulders are also on the cast list – which means Nick Fury and Maria Hill both survive the Thanos snap at the end of Infinity War. We don't know yet how much of the snap is going to be reversed in Avengers 4, but since at least three major characters (including Parker) make it back from the dead by the time Far From Home starts, it suggests that at least some of the loose threads in Phase 3 will be tied up before Phase 4 begins to unravel them again. 

Worryingly though, rumour has is it that Robert Downey Junior will not be a part of Spider-Man: Far From Home - with another character taking his place as the Avengers link/mentor. Does this mean Iron Man doesn't survive Avengers 4?

Returning Spidey director John Watts has spoken about how he'd like to see Parker getting all shy around Black Widow, and getting all pally with Captain America – so Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans could be in the mix, although Watts could equally just have been throwing ideas around. 

New to the line-up is Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck - the jaded Hollywood special effects designer who becomes Spider-Man's new helmet-headed nemesis, Mysterio. Gyllenhaal's casting is not 100 per cent confirmed yet, but a hastily removed instagram post from actor Numan Acar (#jakegyllenhaal #mysterio) seems to confirm the many, many other rumours. 

Acar (Homeland, Prison Break, In The Fade) is another interesting one. Reportedly cast as a character called "Dimitri", the name suggests he might be playing Dimitri Smerdyakov, aka Chameleon, the super-spy master of disguise who makes a pretty worthy villain in the comics.

Also confirmed is SNL and Curb Your Enthusiasm comedian J.B. Smoove, although his role in the film is still being kept under wraps. 

Spider-Man: Far From Home release date

Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on July 5th, 2019 - which puts it fairly close to the release of Avengers 4, on May 3rd. Whatever happens at the end of Phase 3, at least we won't have too long to wait until Phase 4 comes along.  

Spider-Man: Far From Home filming 

Filming on Far From Home began on July 2 under the cryptic working title "Fall Of George", and the shoot is expected to continue until December. 

The film is mostly being shot in and around London, although Numan Acar's hushed-up Instagram post also hashtagged Berlin, Los Angeles and Istanbul.

Tom Holland has been unusally restrained on social media (don't worry, he's bound to spoil something soon), so the only "on-set" pics kicking around so far have been a few pap shots of Spider-Man drinking a cup of coffee between takes.  

Spider-Man: Far From Home villains 

If Gyllenhaal is playing Mysterio, Far From Home will have a pretty great bad guy. 

Quentin Beck is special effects maestro gone wrong, using his knowledge of movie magic and pyrotechnics to become a fishbowl-headed supervillain. He hasn't got any powers, but he still makes a pretty worthy foe in the comics – where he's been a staple since Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's The Amazing Spider-Man #13 back in 1964. If Watts and Gyllenhaal lean into the movie making side of Beck's backstory, the character could also make for a fun meta twist on the MCU. If nothing else, all the practical FX experts who have been put out of a job by CG-heavy movies like Spider-Man will feel his pain.   

We know that Michael Keaton is back as Vulture, although with Mysterio in the mix, it's unlikely that he'll be leading from the front. The end credit sting in Homecoming showed Adrian Toomes/Vulture in prison, which is probably where he'll be in Far From Home, potentially steering things from behind bars.

We also caught of glimpse of Mac Gargan (Scorpion in some storylines, Venom in others) although there's no mention of him turning up in Far From Home just yet. And with the other Venom movie building up a different, parallel Spider-Man universe at the same time, the likelihood is that Mac will stay in the shadows for at least a bit longer. 

Last up on the list of potential villains is Numan Acar's rumoured Chameleon. Blessed with the power of making really, really good masks – Dmitri Smerdyakov is one of Spidey's oldest foes (dating right back to The Amazing Spider-Man #1 in 1963). Able to impersonate anyone he wants to, Chameleon regularly makes things confusing in the comics, often used as a way to fix plot holes by having one cornered character pull off a mask to reveal Dmitri looking smug.

The rumours about Chameleon have also stirred up others about the character's half-brother in the comics, Kraven the Hunter - another Russian supervillain who's been regular foil for Spider-Man in print since the early days.  

Spider-Man: Far From Home plot

All we really know for sure at the moment is that Far From Home will follow on directly from Avengers 4. Producer Amy Pascal confirmed to Fandom that Far From Home won't leave much of a gap, stating that the film will start "a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story". Whether that means we'll pick up Peter's story as he shares a round of beers with the other Avengers over the broken body of Thanos, or if we'll see him still weeping over Tony Stark's grave, we don't know - and we probably won't know until next summer. 

What we do know is that Peter is fast becoming the most important character in the MCU - chosen to bridge Phases 3 and 4 and help us deal with whatever awful, awful things are inevitably going to happen to some of our favourite heroes. 

"So much happens in [Avengers 3 and 4], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker?" Kevin Feige told io9.

"It was purposefully done like this. Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to go back to continue his sophomore year, how the hell are the events of Infinity War and [Avengers 4] going to affect him as he goes back to his junior year?"

How. The. Hell.

As Earth's "modern" technology has only developed over the past 100 years (first T-Model Ford sold in 1908, first radio station in 1920 -KDKA Pittsburgh) any other civilisation even 100 years ahead of us would have, by now, developed the technology to visit Earth. They probably have, and concluded that there was no intelligent life on Earth. "I'm sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It's just been too intelligent to come here.” - Arthur C. Clarke.

          Sony finalmente dá alguns detalhes sobre o que pretende fazer com seu "Aranhaverso"... ou melhor, o SUMC.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Venom é o pontapé inicial para a Sony começar o seu universo particular da Marvel, num cantinho só seu do estúdio, onde já foram listadas outros longas em projeto sem data ainda mas que em muito em breve deve surgir novidades aí. São eles o já em preparação Morbius, seguido da Teia de Seda, Kraven e até do desconhecido Nightwatch, além do filme da Silver Sable e Gata Negra, que acabou indo parar na geladeira. Até então, tudo estava meio nebuloso sobre as verdadeiras intenções da Sony aí, mas a Variety lançou hoje um artigo bem completo que pode esclarecer muitas das nossas dúvidas.

A primeira grande novidade que foi divulgada em primeira mão pela revista é que Silver & Black deixará de ser um filme só pra virar dois. Mas a Silver Sable não está na lista imediata para sair. Sendo a Gata Negra a prioridade. O presidente da Columbia Pictures e principal executivo supervisionando todos esses projetos da Sony, Sanford Panitch, falou a revista que "Nós acreditamos que a Gata Negra é suficiente para uma grande história e o material canônico que olhamos dela é mais que justificado para criar seu próprio filme". Além disso, o filme perde sua diretora, Gina Prince-Bythewood, que ficará na posição de produtora dos dois filmes das personagens femininas.


Mas os planos da Sony, não param por aí. Ela quer realmente estabelecer o que ela chama de SUMC ou Sony's Universe of Marvel Caracters (poderíamos traduzir como UPMS?). "Nós estamos focados em ser fieis aos quadrinhos" disse Sanford e a matéria detalhou que o estúdio tem a disposição mais de 900 personagens da Marvel que são ligados ao Aranha. Stanford também elaborou sobre como não só a Gata Negra e a Silver Sable podem ganhar sua versão na telona. Na lista de mulheres, colocam a Teia de Seda como uma heroína que marcará por ser a primeira Americo-Coreana dos cinemas e até mesmo a "Jackpot" (no Brasil, Loteria), que é uma personagem bem pontual das histórias do Aranha no final da década passada. "O Homem-Aranha se conecta a muitos personagens. Há vilões, heróis e anti-heróis e muitas delas são mulheres, muitas delas são excelentes, completamente dimensionalizadas e bem únicas. Sentimos que não há razão contrária para essas personagens da Marvel não abraçarem a diversidade".

 Com esses vários anúncios da Sony, a ideia é que todos esses filmes sejam versões de baixo orçamento, mas que ainda assim tenham o mesmo apelo dos filmes de super-heróis. O espelho deles é o que a FOX fez com Logan e Deadpool, sucessos que renderam bem mais do que o orçamento baixo que tinham. Ainda assim a ideia é que esses filmes acabem se interligando de alguma forma e aí que entra talvez a primeira surpresa não tão boa da matéria. Para preservar a ideia de um futuro crossover entre Venom e os demais filmes por vir, a Sony não quer que o filme seja algo de censura máxima, mas sim um PG-13. Então, a ideia segunda a matéria é que o filme raspe os limites de passar desta classificação, mas continue algo mais acessível, apesar de todo ar sombrio e maníaco que o alien transparece nos gibis.

Resultado de imagem para venom marvel616

Outra coisa interessante nisso tudo é que a Sony, diferente da Marvel Studios que tem Kevin Feige encabeçando cada filme, pretende distribuir bem o poder entre os seus produtores executivos sobre os diferentes filmes. Sanford Panitch foi encabeçado apenas de fazer com que tudo tome uma forma única, mas teremos por exemplo Amy Pascal cuidando diretamente da produção do filme da Teia de Seda enquanto que Palak Patel, Avi Arad e Matt Tolmach estarão de olho na produção do Venom e do Morbius, por exemplo, cada um com um dedicação diferente.

E no fim da matéria, temos a informação mais curiosa dentre as novidades. Segundo a Variety, a relação da Sony e da Marvel estaria tão boa que além de permitir o Homem-Aranha saindo no filme dos Vingadores como tem sido feito, ela estaria disposta a liberar outros dos seus personagens do universo do Aranha para serem parte do seu UCM. Sinto cheiro de Norman Osborn vindo aí? Mulher-Aranha como parte dos Vingadores? Bom, claro que isso não vem sem troca, e a ideia é que personagens do UCM continuem como combinado aparecendo sempre nos seus filmes. Mas será que ele falou que também seriam em outros filmes que não o do Aranha de Tom Holland?

Kevin Feige runs the Marvel Cinematic Universe from his corner office at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, Calif. There, the president of Marvel Studios is surrounded by toys: Iron Man action figures (signed by director Jon Favreau) line the windows, Captain America's shield is framed on the wall and Thor's hammer rests on the coffee table. Before our interview, Feige puts his hand in a replica of Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet (which plays a central role in the new Avengers movie ) — and chuckles like a big kid. "All of us at Marvel Studios look at ourselves as fans first," he says. "That's what we were before we were filmmakers." Over 18 years, Feige has produced a lot of Marvel movies. His credits start with the first X-Men in 2000, and go all the way through Avengers: Infinity War , out this week. "A producer does nothing and everything," he says.

          A Wall Streeter-turned-VC uses a strategy from his investing career to make the personal decisions that stress him out most      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Patrick McGinnis.JPG

  • Entrepreneur and investor Patrick McGinnis discussed how "Fear Of Better Options" can lead to being overly hesitant in taking decisions in an interview with The New York Times' Tim Herrera.
  • For big life decisions, McGinnis applies the kind of approaches he does when evaluating a potential investment as a VC.
  • He writes everything he can think of down, then reads it out loud, "like writing an investment memo for a V.C. investment."

Making big decisions can be scary, but one Wall Streeter-turned-VC has a good strategy to overcome paralysis based on his experiences as an investor.

Patrick McGinnis is an entrepreneur, investor, and the author of the book, "The 10% Entrepreneur: Living Your Startup Dream Without Quitting Your Day Job," in which he describes strategies for balancing starting a new venture on your own while also keeping the security of a steady career.

McGinnis was recently interviewed by The New York Times' Tim Herrera on the concept of "Fear Of Better Options," or "FOBO," which McGinnis coined to describe a type of mental paralysis that can happen when making a decision.

The basic idea of FOBO, according to Herrera, is that one might be overly hesitant to take a pretty good course of action if it means foregoing some other hypothetical better course of action. The problem, of course, is that holding out for that better hypothetical could mean losing the good opportunity at hand.

McGinnis shared a couple of strategies he uses to overcome FOBO with Herrera. For making important life decisions, McGinnis said he relied on the kind of analysis he takes when evaluating a potential investment as a venture capitalist:

"For the big things, I try to think like a venture capitalist. I write everything down on the topic — pros, cons, etc. — and I read it out loud. That process is basically like writing an investment memo for a V.C. investment, but in this case the investment is of your time, money, energy, etc."

McGinnis also described a quicker and simpler process for more day-to-day, less momentous decisions, which he called "asking the watch." He told Herrera:

"I whittle something down to two options and then assign each item to a side of my watch. Then I look down and see where the second hand is at that moment. Decision made. It sounds silly, but if you try it — asking the universe — you will thank me."

          Rev. Shawn Amos Comes to Blackbox @ The Edye At The Broad Stage, 9/7      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Eli and Edythe Broad Stage in Santa Monica presents The Reverend Shawn Amos on Friday, September 7 at 8:00pm, inaugurating the blackbox @ the edye at The Broad Stage. blackbox @ the edye transforms The Edye into a club featuring up-and-coming jazz and blues artists.

In addition to christening the house, the entire season is curated and hosted by The Reverend Shawn Amos, and he and his house band will perform at other shows during the season as well.

New York's Cotton Club and Village Vanguard, Chicago's Kingston Mines, Kansas City's Reno Club, Los Angeles's Dunbar Hotel - these were more than just nightclubs. The Great American 20th century jazz and blues scene was a crucial gathering place where stories were shared and traditions handed down. In these sanctuaries, blacks, whites, rich and poor crossed lines to congregate and hold hands.

In the early 1960s, Amos' mother, Shirl-ee May, sang jazz and blues at Club Harlem - a storied Atlantic City night spot home to a generation of African American performers. Throughout the early-mid 20th century, jazz and blues clubs like Club Harlem were the epicenter of urban American nightlife.

Shawn Amos writes, "No doubt, people, souls were being saved. It's in the American rhythm and the rhyme. Jazz and blues is our music. It belongs to us. This music is ours. Jazz and blues is the tragedy and triumph of our shared history. It's the continual battle of our current circumstance. Jazz and blues cuts the shortest path from our heart to our head and up to a higher power. These deep grooves hold our fears, hopes and darkest demons. In this trying 21st century, jazz and blues reminds us of our interdependence."

Amos is followed by Sandra Booker singing Sarah Vaughan (October 5), Billy Valentine (November 2), Amy Keys (December 7), a tribute to the Harlem Renaissance (February 1), Mudbug Brass Band (March 1), Jennifer Keith Quintet (April 5), and Gabrielito (May 3).

Information, subscription packages and tickets priced $20 are available at thebroadstage.org or by calling 310.434.3200, or visiting at the box office at 1310 11thSt. Santa Monica CA 90401 beginning three hours prior to performance.

blackbox @ the edye at The Broad Stage made possible in part by a generous gift from Ann Petersen.

About Shawn Amos and his current album The Reverend Shawn Amos Breaks It Down

From West Coast clubs, to Deep South joints, to European festivals, to YouTube, to the podcast universe, the Reverend Shawn Amos' message of joyful blues is reaching an ever-increasing flock. The Rev's distinctive blend of black roots music, R & B, and stripped down rock n' roll brings a bracing, soul-deep musical experience to audiences starved for authenticity, for connection. "I derive a lot of satisfaction bringing people joy," he says.

Prior to his creation of the Reverend persona in 2013, folks knew Shawn Amos as producer (Solomon Burke's Live in Nashville, and Shout! Factory box set Q: The Musical Biography of Quincy Jones), content creator for companies looking for ways to tell their stories on the internet, and Americana singer-songwriter who'd grown up in a dramatically dysfunctional L.A. home, a story the Rev serialized as Cookies & Milk in the Huffington Post.

The Rev also ran an 18-month stint as Artistic Director of Vibrato Jazz Grill in Los Angeles, owned by longtime friend Herb Alpert, co-founder of the legendary A & M record label. "It was a full-circle experience," the Rev says of the Vibrato gig. As the son of entrepreneur and William Morris agent Wally "Famous" Amos, the Rev says, "I grew up on the A & M lot." And back in his producer days, the Rev oversaw the reissue of Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass' catalog, and a remix of the classic Whipped Cream & Other Delights album.

He has recorded The Reverend Shawn Amos Tells It (2014) and his latest The Reverend Shawn Amos Breaks It Down (2018), which expands his mission. This evolution is partly the result of over touring to supporting his chart-topping The Reverend Shawn Amos Loves You (2015). On the road, the Rev took risks, listened to his heart, and honed his chops in the midst of that came the seismic election of 2016, and the subsequent altering of the American landscape.

Also, by the time he set out to record The Reverend Shawn Amos Breaks It Down (2018) his life had changed dramatically. He also was newly single. All of the above significantly impacted the Rev as a father, citizen, musician, and African-American man, and all of it can be heard on The Reverend Shawn Amos Breaks It Down.

"When we toured the South in May of 2017, I could feel things changing post-Trump," he says. ""I was listening to a lot of MLK speeches, and reading him," the Rev says. "I wanted to be immersed in black history, in a resistance movement of the past. I was also listening to a lot of Staples Singers, especially [acclaimed 1965 LP] Amen. The degree to which I was aware of my race was distracting, striking, hard to ignore. It was powerful being in the South and listening to protest music, to freedom songs conceived to fuel a movement, with no thought toward commercialism."


          Celebration Presents THE INCREDIBLE LIFE AND WONDROUS ADVENTURES OF THE AMAZING FABULOUS FRED      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Celebration Theatre presents, in association with The Aliiance of Los Angeles Playwrights, as part of its New Works Reading Series, The Incredible Life and Wondrous Adventures of the Amazing Fabulous Fredby Dan Berkowitz, directed by Alan Wethern and performing one night only on Tuesday, August 14 at 7:30pm at Celebration Theatre @ The Lex, 6760 Lexington Ave. in Hollywood.

THE INCREDIBLY LIFE AND WONDROUS ADVENTURES OF THE AMAZING FABULOUS FRED follows Fred, a gay insurance salesman and world-class hypochondriac. But under his nerdy exterior beats the heart of a fabulist, with fantasies of flying secretly to England to meet his real mother the Queen... joining a Mexican cult which celebrates vegetables... and cross-dressing so no one notices by wearing his evening gown under his suit.

When Fred is diagnosed with a disease so rare only other hypochondriacs have heard of it, he must confront a surreal health care system, skeptical friends, and lovers. After an excruciating death, Fred returns from The Other Side to let us know that love is what really drives the universe. It's comedy, it's drama, it's magical realism, it's vaudeville... and a little Monty Python too...

          A Shared Future for Humanity—Free of the British Empire      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
President Donald J. Trump and Queen Elizabeth II (invisible) | July 13, 2018 (Official White House Photo by Andrea Hanks)

The British Empire would have you believe that they are totally in control of the current strategic situation, and fully confident that their Empire will last another thousand years. Is that why they have found it necessary to:

  • Attempt to cut off all communication between Presidents Trump and Putin?
  • Try to induce all-out trade and financial warfare with China and its Belt and Road Initiative?
  • Seek to set the fascist precedent of shutting down any and all website and twitter accounts that they find objectionable, to silence all opposition views?
  • Topple governments and throw presidents in jail, on trumped-up "corruption" charges facilitated by J. Edgar Hoover-style plea bargain blackmail?
  • Assassinate engineers and scientists at the center of their nations' development efforts?
  • And, most significantly, maintain their desperate ploy to topple the Trump government with the endless, contrived twists and turns of Russiagate?

But these are not signs of strength. They are signs of over-deployment and exposure to public view. The British Empire is vulnerable.

They are especially vulnerable to the spread of the Spirit of the New Silk Road across the planet, and the optimistic clarity of thought and purpose it tends to promote. To this must be fused the solutions uniquely provided by LaRouche's science of physical economy, as exemplified by his Four Laws policy of 2014. Each and every culture must return to its own best classical traditions; each and every nation's population must elevate their thinking to this level.

Both Russia and China are responding to the challenges and crises they face with deeper strategic planning on alternatives to the current dying imperial system, plans which clearly take into account their differentiated reading of the U.S. political situation, including the battle Trump is waging to establish mutually-beneficial relations with their countries, in particular. Thus, Putin and Trump remain in dialogue through letters and other channels of communication, with Putin proposing concreate areas of cooperation on nuclear arms control. And China continues to make it clear that the policy of trade and financial warfare against China will not only fail, but will actually backfire and be harmful to U.S. national interests as well.

The principle in play, of "a shared future for humanity," is what Lyndon LaRouche otherwise presented in the form of his Four Powers proposal, of an alliance of the U.S., China, Russia and India, as well as other nations, to defeat the bankrupt British Empire and its pessimistic (and unscientific) view of man, the universe, and God.

Silence. I remember the silence the most. – Dennis R. Ricketts, “Patrol.”

It is 1984 and Nexus #8 has just been released. This issue has “History of the Second World War” which is background for a game of the same name and Starfire with a history of their Orions. Of course there is a section on the Star Fleet Universe, too. In that section you will find “Patrol” by Dennis R. Ricketts, an article on names of Federation ships, some scenarios, term papers, and the Academy. These appear along with a Q&A with Steve Cole.  There was also the inevitable (at the time) collection of errata.

Starfire has a good number of articles. There is one on the Khanate of Orion, one on Khanate Military Service, and one on incidents from the first interstellar war. There is also an interesting pair of articles examining balanced design.

For the historical gamer there is the aforementioned background on the forthcoming game History of the Second World War and a timeline of events in the Russian campaigns. There is also a scenario for Battlewagon (“The Last Sortie of the Yamato,” released in PDF as “Battlewagon Article #3”). There are reviews of the computer games Computer Football Strategy, Telengard, Cyborg, and The Pharaoh’s Curse.

The upcoming Venom movie is going to be the first test of whether these Spider-Man characters can function without Spidey himself. […]

Nexus #8Publisher: Amarillo Design Bureau

Silence. I remember the silence the most. – Dennis R. Ricketts, “Patrol.”

It is 1984 and Nexus #8 has just been released. This issue has “History of the Second World War” which is background for a game of the same name and Starfire with a history of their Orions. Of course there is a section on the Star Fleet Universe, too. In that section you will find “Patrol” by Dennis R. Ricketts, an article on names of Federation ships, some scenarios, term papers, and the Academy. These appear along with a Q&A with Steve Cole.  There was also the inevitable (at the time) collection of errata.

Starfire has a good number of articles. There is one on the Khanate of Orion, one on Khanate Military Service, and one on incidents from the first interstellar war. There is also an interesting pair of articles examining balanced design.

For the historical gamer there is the aforementioned background on the forthcoming game History of the Second World War and a timeline of events in the Russian campaigns. There is also a scenario for Battlewagon (“The Last Sortie of the Yamato,” released in PDF as “Battlewagon Article #3”). There are reviews of the computer games Computer Football Strategy, Telengard, Cyborg, and The Pharaoh’s Curse.

COSMOS Survey

This image shows data from a massive observing campaign that includes NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. These Chandra data have provided strong evidence for the existence of so-called intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs). Combined with a separate study also using Chandra data, these results may allow astronomers to better understand how the very largest black holes in the early Universe formed, as described in our latest press release.

The COSMOS ("cosmic evolution survey") Legacy Survey has assembled data from some of the world's most powerful telescopes spanning the electromagnetic spectrum. This image contains Chandra data from this survey, equivalent to about 4.6 million seconds of observing time. The colors in this image represent different levels of X-ray energy detected by Chandra. Here the lowest-energy X-rays are red, the medium band is green, and the highest-energy X-rays observed by Chandra are blue. Most of the colored dots in this image are black holes. Data from the Spitzer Space Telescope are shown in grey. The inset shows an artist's impression of a growing black hole in the center of a galaxy. A disk of material surrounding the black hole and a jet of outflowing material are also depicted.

Two new separate studies using the Chandra COSMOS-Legacy survey data and other Chandra data have independently collected samples of IMBHs, an elusive category of black holes in between stellar mass black holes and the supermassive black holes found in the central regions of massive galaxies.

One team of researchers identified 40 growing black holes in dwarf galaxies. Twelve of them are located at distances more than five billion light years from Earth and the most distant is 10.9 billion light years away, the most distant growing black hole in a dwarf galaxy ever seen. Most of these sources are likely IMBHs with masses that are about 10,000 to 100,000 times that of the Sun.

A second team found a separate, important sample of possible IMBHs in galaxies that are closer to Earth. In this sample, the most distant IMBH candidate is about 2.8 billion light years from Earth and about 90% of the IMBH candidates they discovered are no more than 1.3 billion light years away.

They detected 305 galaxies in their survey with black hole masses less than 300,000 solar masses. Observations with Chandra and with ESA's XMM-Newton of a small part of this sample show that about half of the 305 IMBH candidates are likely to be valid IMBHs. The masses for the ten sources detected with X-ray observations were determined to be between 40,000 and 300,000 times the mass of the Sun.

IMBHs may be able to explain how the very biggest black holes, the supermassive ones, were able to form so quickly after the Big Bang. One leading explanation is that supermassive black holes grow over time from smaller black holes "seeds" containing about a hundred times the Sun's mass. Some of these seeds should merge to form IMBHs. Another explanation is that they form very quickly from the collapse of a giant cloud of gas with a mass equal to hundreds of thousands of times that of the Sun. There is yet to be a consensus among astronomers on the role IMBHs may play.

A paper describing the COSMOS-Legacy result by Mar Mezcua (Institute for Space Sciences, Spain) and colleagues was published in the August issue of the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society and is available online. The paper by Igor Chilingarian (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) on the closer IMBH sample is being published in the August 10th issue of The Astrophysical Journal and is available online.

          Movie Thoughts: Ant-Man and the Wasp      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
It's better late than never! I finally saw Ant-Man and the Wasp today! My friend, Charlotte had been asking me to see the movie for a while. And asking. And asking. I finally saw it! It wasn't like I DIDN'T want to see it. I did. Life gets in the way. Friends get busy and there isn't enough hours in the day. Eh, it is what it is. Let's get right down to it. What did I think?

I liked it!

I mean it wasn't bad or anything. Far from it. The movie shows what Scott Lang had been up to since he was noticeably absent from Avengers: Infinity War.  More on that in a second. The actors did really well. Paul Rudd was great as Scott/Ant-Man. Michelle Pfieffer was great was Janet van Dyne. The actors all did a really good job.

Michelle, I think, nailed the part of Jan aka the original Wasp. If you remember my top ten Avengers video, I listed her as one of my favorite Avengers of all time. She nailed the character's playful nature, wit, attitude and most importantly brains. If she and Michael Douglas's Hank Pym were a lot younger, I could see them as original Avengers with RDJ, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, ScarJo and Ruffalo. The actors Marvel Studios picks to play the characters so far have been amazing. It's like they leap from the page and onto the screen. It's really cool to see especially since twenty years ago movies like this were just a pipe dream.

I also wonder if they are settling something up with Cassie. She seemed kind of sad that Scott didn't want her as a partner. Cassie, as some people might know grows up to become the heroine Stature and later Stinger. That bit makes me wonder if they are setting up Young Avengers down the road. It honestly wouldn't surprise me.

There really hasn't been a truly awful movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The only thing people might not like is the pacing. But, that's okay. After we saw Avengers Infinity War earlier this year, I think we needed a break from the crazy that happened in that movie. I'm glad they saved that connection until the mid-credit scene. If you haven't seen it by now, I dunno if I should spoil. There is a connection to Infinity War and the cliffhanger makes me wonder how we're going to see Rudd's Ant-Man in the next Avengers movie.

It was still a fun ride. From a standalone standpoint, it was a great sequel to an already cool movie. Ant-Man was amazing in its own right and it's great to see him partner with the winsome Wasp here. Sure it's Hope van Dyne but she still counts.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is a fun installment from Marvel Studios. It was great seeing everyone after that really emotional Avengers Infinity War. The MCU continues to have dark and light balanced together and that's a good thing.

Before I go, I do want to mention that it's good that the movie doesn't have a traditional "mwhahaha I am a baddie!" antagonist. Everyone has their own ulterior movies and believes what they are doing is right. That's how you right a villain. No one is evil for evil's sake and you feel bad for the Ghost. In the end a lot of elements make this movie one to see. There's humor, heart, action, light, dark bits and fantastical elements. It's basically what we've come to expect from Marvel Studios.

I've yet to see anything really awful from Marvel Studios and with ten solid years under their belt already, I doubt we ever will. Here's to ten more years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Now go out there and see Ant-Man and the Wasp! Unless you did already!

See ya next time!

Oh and Stan's cameo was amazing and works on so many levels. =)

In reply to Okay, Bones...

Paganism did not make a comeback after Rome collapsed, the Xian stuff that was being downloaded throughout various cultural software continued. I tend to think these types will go the way of old world pagans ironically to be replaced by the new ones.

John Michael Greer is an interesting person to read and listen to in regards to a collapsing scenario. What I foresee is the further rise of New Age religion and Neo Paganism. It will basically be Mad Max with permaculture and regrowing forests but without the spectre(though not complete absence) and structure of war. And given all the cool examples of appropriated technology in the Mad Max universe, that sounds good to me:)

Sci-magic is ok... the point is to explore this fictional world, and respond to any dilemma it presents, an elaborate thought-experiment... the point is NOT to argue how likely it is to happen. "If we had post-scarcity, and x/y/z, then what?" It allows us to explore human nature. In the Culture, you are basically immortal, choosing to die only when you want, you can be resurrected, etc. You can change gender. Same-sex couples can have genetic offspring. More than two people can have genetic offspring. A pair of parents could choose to have 50,000 kids at once, each raised by an android AI lookalike of themselves that's as good as the real thing. Etc. Reproduction is NOT a problem. My question is... let's say the Culture succeeds. It grows to encompass the entire universe/multiverse/whatever at every level, and every individual is "born" into the Culture, every scientific discovery has been made, every useful technological invention has been created, every place has been explored and colonized, all other organisms have been uplifted, everyone resurrected, technology making crime physically impossible to commit (theft, rape, trespassing, vandalism, mind control, kidnapping, assault, murder, etc.), substantial manipulation of the universe through more sci-magic so even the death of the universe has been prevented and will continue in a steady state for eternity . . . . . . . What Happens Next?? I see a few paths to find meaning in... 1. focus on good, old biological instincts to raise a family 2. being creative in the various arts (painting, sculpture, music, writing, Virtual Reality game design, dance, crafts, etc.) 3. teaching and training yourself to be as self-dependent as possible (like how to manage their own farm, build and maintain their own power generator and water supply on their property, verifying all established scientific truths and other facts themselves, discover and integrate their 4. some kind of worship/reverence of Nature/Life/Universe, the world as it is 5. building and maintaining relationships and friendships 6. just having fun and being happy, (the hedonist option), enjoying their high quality of life, with many new Virtual Reality games, traditional video games, sports, tournaments, contests, movies, music (some people even trying to be a celebrity through gaming/sports/music/acting on their own), etc. There are nonaddictive "happy pills," but while not illegal, they are generally frowned upon and rarely used and only by a small minority of people. Also, some people (the Stoics) focus on being happy not by chasing anything, or taking happy pills, but by disciplining themselves to be happily at peace with life as it is in all situations... and others (the Neopuritans) suggest another way to happiness and inner-peace is to actually refrain yourself from certain things. 7.

Das Body (Credit: Espen Rst)
It's one for fans of Chromatics or even early Madonna...

Das Body are only just beginning to sketch out their universe, only just beginning to detail the outline of their realm.

Their debut EP - self-titled, of course - arrives on September 28th (order LINK), led by recent dark-pop single 'Boys'.

A frozen slice of 80s machine funk, the single is now followed by something different, something that plies an outsider aesthetic.

'Graceland' feels like early Madonna sluiced through the Drive soundtrack, as if Chromatics had suddenly decided to remix Robyn.

Driving head-long past neon-lit fjords, it's powered by Elie Linden's dramatic vocal. She explains:

'Graceland' "is more of a feeling than a song. Playing it live feels like starring in a neo-noir movie with Elvis. Graceland is like a battle between the never-ending drumbeat and the unsettling vocals, held together by some simple chords. It was an intense journey to write, it's an intense journey to play and it's probably an intense listen."

Set to play Norway's Oya festival this weekend, this is the perfect opportunity to soak up Das Body.

Tune in now.

Some 10 million light-years distant and about 50,000 light-years across, the spiral galaxy also seems to have more than its fair share of giant star forming HII regions, marked by the telltale reddish glow of atomic hydrogen gas. The giant HII regions are energized by clusters of hot, massive stars that explode as bright supernovae at the end of their short and furious lives.

“Stretching The Imagination”
by Chet Raymo

“Professor, that stuff you spoke of in class this morning- about the beginning of the universe..."
Yes?
"Well, you know how you said that the universe began 14 billion years ago as an infinitely small point...?"
Yes, that appears to be the case. An explosion from a point of infinite energy. Space and time expanding from nothing. Matter coalescing from cooling radiation. Stars, galaxies...
"To tell the truth, I'm having a hard time believing it. I mean, the idea that everything that exists today, the billions and billions of galaxies, stars and planets, life, everything, was contained within something no bigger than a pinprick. I mean, come on...do you really expect me to swallow that?"
You will recall that I listed some pretty convincing evidence: The galaxies are racing apart, as from a primordial explosion; the amount of hydrogen and helium in the universe is just what theory predicts for a Big Bang beginning; and, not least, we see the flash of the Big Bang in every direction of space, with precisely the predicted spectrum.
"Yeah, I know. I understand most of that stuff. But I keep coming back to the idea of the whole universe contained within a pinprick. I mean, it's impossible to imagine."
It is difficult to imagine, I'll grant you. But not impossible. Mathematically, it can be described exactly. Mathematics is a big help to the imagination.
"It sounds impossible."
Let me tell you a story. More than 2,000 years ago in Alexandria, Egypt, there were two fellows, named Eratosthenes and Aristarchus. They were excellent mathematicians. Eratosthenes was a geographer. He imagined that the Earth was a sphere. He figured out how to measure the size of the sphere by using shadows cast by the Sun at Alexandria and another place down the valley of the Nile. He used some mathematics that at the time was pretty advanced stuff- geometry, trig.

He calculated the size of the Earth and got it nearly dead-on, without ever leaving Alexandria. That's what I mean about mathematics being an aid to the imagination. Then Aristarchus used the size of the Earth to figure out the sizes and distances of the Sun and the Moon. He observed eclipses of the Moon, and measured the time it takes the moon to move through the shadow of the Earth. Then he did some high-powered mathematics with circles and triangles. According to his calculations, the Sun is many times bigger than the Earth.

Aristarchus told his fellow Alexandrians about his discovery. If the Earth is the size of a grape, he may have said, then the Sun is the size of a melon. They laughed. Any fool can see that the Sun is tiny compared to the vast, wide Earth. Why, for heaven's sake, one can cover up the Sun with the tip of one's little finger, but travel across the Earth for weeks without ever leaving Egypt. The Sun bigger than the Earth? No way, it was simply impossible to imagine.
"But. .."
And Aristarchus got one crucial observation wrong, through no fault of his own. In fact, the relative sizes of the Earth and Sun are more like a grape and a washing machine, something every school child accepts today. The moral of the story is- the "impossible" can turn out to be true.
"But the whole universe contained within a pinprick? It violates common sense."
Einstein once said that common sense is the collection of prejudices we acquire by age 18. I'm not telling you to believe the Big Bang if you don't want to, but keep your options open. One generation's impossibility often turns out to be the next generation's common sense.
"You're asking me to take it on faith?"
Yes, on faith. But not on blind faith. As we saw this morning in class, there is impressive observational evidence. The calculations are based on Einstein's general theory of relativity, which has many important successes to its credit. Then there's the record of success by the successors of Eratosthenes and Aristarchus. Just think of all the scientific discoveries that were thought to be nonsense in their time. The Earth going around the Sun. The evolution of life over bilions of years. Continents drifting and colliding. A chemical blueprint for a human being in the DNA of a single microscopic cell. And besides, it's a wonderful, wonderful story- a universe unfolding from a mathematical point!
"Yeah, it's a wonderful story, all right. But..."
But?
"But I still don't believe it."

          La Foire du Livre de Francfort lance une campagne pour les droits de l'homme      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Double anniversaire à venir, en octobre prochain : la Foire du Livre de Francfort fêtera sa 70e édition, et la Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme les 70 ans de sa signature, en 1948. À cette occasion, la Foire du Livre de Francfort lance une campagne pour défendre les droits de l'homme, « On the Same Page », pour améliorer leur respect dans le monde entier.





 

La Foire du Livre de Francfort et l'association des éditeurs et des libraires allemands, le Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels, qui l'organise, annoncent une grande campagne axée sur les droits de l'homme, en partenariat avec les Nations Unies, Amnesty International, les chaines de télévision Arte et ZDF, ainsi que le journal Der Spiegel. Document le plus traduit du monde, la Déclaration des droits de l'homme commence par le célèbre article :

 

« Tous les êtres humains naissent libres et égaux en dignité et en droits. Ils sont doués de raison et de conscience et doivent agir les uns envers les autres dans un esprit de fraternité. »

 

Or, note la Foire du Livre de Francfort, « dans de nombreux pays, les droits de l'homme sont bafoués, et les citoyens qui réclament leur respect sont fréquemment menacés, dans leur liberté et leur intégrité ». La campagne « On the Same Page » cherchera à sensibiliser lecteurs et éditeurs, ainsi que toute l'industrie du livre en général, à apporter son soutien à la défense des droits de l'homme.

 

« Alors que les valeurs fondamentales de la Déclaration universelle sont contestées dans de nombreuses régions du monde, il est impératif que nous nous levions tous et que nous réaffirmions notre attachement à ces valeurs essentielles pour que nos sociétés restent libres, justes et stables. Tout le monde peut faire la différence en défendant les droits des autres, et cette initiative de la Foire du Livre de Francfort et du Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels est un effort bienvenu pour mobiliser les libraires et les éditeurs du monde entier afin que nous tenions tous le même discours », explique Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, Haut-Commissaire des Nations Unies en charge des droits de l'homme.

 

Juergen Boos, le directeur de la Foire, a insisté sur le fait que cette dernière « ne fonctionnait que grâce aux principes de base de la liberté et du respect de l'autre, des valeurs que nous considérons comme non négociables ». « La seule responsabilité historique du comportement de notre institution et des autres membres de l'industrie du livre allemande entre 1933 à 1945 l'exige. L'une de nos responsabilités les plus importantes est la diffusion de la liberté d'expression », affirme encore Alexander Skipis, directeur du Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels.


Lors de son édition 2017, la Foire avait subi plusieurs incidents autour de la présence d'éditeurs et d'auteurs d'extrême droite entre ses murs. La Foire avait mis en avant la liberté d'expression pour justifier l'exposition offerte à ces ouvrages et leurs idées.

Sous le hashtag #OnTheSamePage, chacun est évidemment invité à réagir sur les réseaux sociaux. Pour les libraires et éditeurs, la Foire du Livre invite à organiser des événements, lectures ou débats autour du sujet, ou encore à proposer des vitrines sur ce thème. La campagne de promotion officielle commencera en septembre 2018.

 

Enfin, le programme de la Foire du Livre elle-même accordera une large place aux droits de l'homme, avec la présence d'auteurs comme Paul Beatty, Dmitry Glukhovsky, Cixin Liu, Meg Wolitzer, Deniz Yücel ou encore Juli Zeh pour en parler.

Recently Matthew Vaughn indicated that the planned third Kingsman film would put a bow on the relationship between Harry Hart and Eggsy but that he also had some plans for further adventures set within the Kingsman universe. In addition to an 8-hour television series, Vaughn also has ideas to take the film series back in time and look in on the organization in the early 20th century in a film called Kingsman: The Great Game, which he’d like to film back to back with the next Kingsman film. We’ve got the scoop on how soon that process might start and

Sure, there are a lot of important players in the Star Wars universe, any one of which can be considered the most influential character in Star Wars. Darth Vader is believed to have personally ordered the execution of Owen and Beru Lars, setting young Skywalker on his path of destiny. Padme’s enabling of Anakin’s impulsive behavior is a direct cause of his downward spiral towards the Dark Side, and Luke just may have unbalanced the Force. But who else in the galaxy far, far away could make a claim for most influential character of the Star Wars film saga? Here’s my

@<a href="#comment-429126" rel="nofollow">prochrist [49]</a>: Het beeld van de Dame Blanche is bijzonder illustratief voor bepaald uiterlijk vertoon. Net als vroeger lotusvoetjes voor Chinees aristocratische vrouwen, een beeld van wat tegenwoordig een kleine ecologische footprint genoemd zou worden. Of tegenwoordig het ideaalbeeld van een vrouw met blond haar, blauwe ogen en een <a href="https://www.nydj.nl/trends/style-advice-zandloperfiguur/" rel="nofollow">zandloperfiguur</a> of een man die er liefst als mr. Universe uitziet. Er gaat veel energie en middelen verloren, alleen maar voor uiterlijk vertoon dat lang niet altijd nuttig is. Mijn punt is dat bepaalde (geloofs)overtuigingen zich vaak meer richten op de buitenkant dan het innerlijke karakter. Als adel zou betekenen dat er sprake is van nobel karakter, waarom moet dan traditioneel 'grootsheid' uitgemeten worden met grote bouwwerken zoals kastelen en paleizen met dure inrichting en afgemeten worden aan vormelijk gedrag zoals (hof)protocollen? Het gaat me hier niet om het verschijnsel adel op zich, maar op de manier waarop het naar buiten komt. Bepaalde takken van adel richtten zich bijv. minder op uiterlijk vertoon en stonden meer tussen gewone mensen. Je zou dan zeggen dat ze op die manier meer kansen hadden om qua karakter 'aanstekelijk' te zijn jegens gewone mensen. Als ik de verhalen zo lees, waren gewone mensen veel meer aan hen gehecht dan aan andere adel die zich ergens terugtrok en vanaf een afstandje de boel regelde. Onbekend maakt onbemind en zo. Los van gebruik of juist misbruik van privileges, want dat misbruik produceert onvrede en brandhaarden. Op het moment ben ik het boek <a href="http://leonardopisano.nl/achterflaptekst/" rel="nofollow">Noblesse oblige</a> (adeldom verplicht) aan het lezen, waarin onder andere kardinale deugden en kardinale zonden aan de orde komen. Vooral relevant bij voorbeeldfiguren, want ondeugdelijke voorbeelden doen ondeugdelijk volgen. Een lezenswaardig boek.

Particle accelerators have plenty to teach us about the mysterious forces and matter that makes up the universe, but these facilities aren't exactly portable, involving kilometers of tunnels and equipment. Now, researchers at Imperial College London have developed a new way to accelerate antimatter particles using common equipment already found in many labs, in a much smaller space.

          Perfection      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Perfection is where you are at, not where you want to be.

Everything is God — you, everyone else, everything in the Universe — so it’s all perfection, all holiness. It cannot be otherwise.

Perfection is a state of existence. It is All states. It’s not a form of existence.

Perfection doesn’t mean that you don’t strive to “improve” yourself. Improvement is a relative term that only exists in this reality. It doesn’t exist in Heaven, because nothing outside of Unity exists in Heaven. There is no contrast in Heaven.

But in this reality, we remember our divinity through contrast. We remember who and what we are by seeing what we are not. Thus there appears room for improvement — we can become more kind, more loving, more grateful.

These are things that we want to strive for. We don’t want to be wishing we were more intelligent, or beautiful, or athletic etc. Because we are perfect as we are. We came here with certain gifts or looks or intelligence for a reason. We don’t need to question these reasons. Each of us has gifts that are unique and can be a powerful contribution to awakening for us individually and for the world. That is why comparison is meaningless and reinforces illusion, not Unity.

          Re: Why the Concept of God Might Be a Useful Error      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I don’t think some things can be explained. Like our spirits for one and where we go after death. This society doesn’t like to talk about death but its part of life and its important to talk about it.

We’re not in charge of the universe and its completely out of our control. Let go. We are completely insignificant in even our own galaxy. We don’t know where it comes from. Maybe we can do the best we can and try to do the right thing while we can because it could be good for our souls and for others. Humans are social animals. There is spirituality but it may have nothing to do with religion. If we live in an emptiness of materialism and loneliness we could change it by reaching out to our fellow human beings. It takes courage.

Biosphere2_Inside_big


Biosphere 2 is an Earth systems science research facility located in Oracle, Arizona. It has been owned by the University of Arizona since 2011. Its mission is to serve as a center for research, outreach, teaching, and lifelong learningabout Earth, its living systems, and its place in the universe. It is a 3.14-acre (1.27-hectare) structure originally built to be an artificial, materially closed ecological system, or vivarium. It remains the largest closed system ever created.


Biosphere 2 was originally meant to explore the web of interactions within life systems in a structure with five areas based on biomes, and an agricultural area and human living and working space to study the interactions between humans, farming, and technology with the rest of nature. It also explored the use of closed biospheres in space colonization, and allowed the study and manipulation of a biosphere without harming Earth’s.


http://biosphere2.org


Biosphere_2_Habitat_&_Lung_2009-05-10


Its five biome areas were a 1,900 square meter rainforest, an 850 square meter ocean with a coral reef, a 450 square meter mangrove wetlands, a 1,300 square meter savannah grassland, a 1,400 square meter fog desert, a 2,500 square meter agricultural system, a human habitat, and a below-ground infrastructure. Heating and cooling water circulated through independent piping systems and passive solar input through the glass space frame panels covering most of the facility, and electrical power was supplied into Biosphere 2 from an onsite natural gas energy center.



Biosphere 2 was only used twice for its original intended purposes as a closed-system experiment: once from 1991 to 1993, and the second time from March to September 1994. Both attempts, though heavily publicized, ran into problems including low amounts of food and oxygen, die-offs of many animal and plant species, squabbling among the resident scientists and management issues.



In June 1994, during the middle of the second experiment, Space Biosphere Ventures dissolved, and the structure was left in limbo. It was purchased in 1995 by Columbia University, who used it to run experiments until 2005. It then looked in danger of being demolished to make way for housing and retail stores, but was taken over for research by the University of Arizona in 2007; the University of Arizona assumed full ownership of the structure in 2011.


With dreams of colonizing space, eight people sealed themselves in a glass biosphere in 1991. But they eventually “suffocated, starved and went mad.”

          Re: The Reference Frame: Market manipulation: psychopath Musk remains at large      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Dear Gene, I have thought you had erased this unreasonable comment but someone responded to it so I can see that you didn't.

What led you to make the extraordinary claim that Elon Musk and the board have thought of that beforehand? Has it ever happened that Musk has thought about any of similar interactions and events beforehand? It would be the first time in the history of the Universe. You have surely noticed that Musk is a loose cannon, haven't you?

It is not true that the criminal prosecution requires proof beyond reasonable doubt - and on top of that, I think that the SEC already has a proof beyond reasonable doubt, anyway. Harvey Pitt, the ex-SEC chairman, has explained that it's straightforward to make the securities fraud charges. They are really simpler than the market manipulation. If the money wasn't secured at the moment of the tweet, which may only be shown by waterproof documents guaranteeing the funding, it will be securities fraud because he's written a factually untrue information about the takeover which is explicitly illegal (I have quoted the precise sections of the SEC law that say it) and described as fraud in the laws that I cited.

Now, the Tesla board has confirmed to the SEC that the board has never heard of any financing plans. See e.g. Reuters here:
https://www.reuters.com/art...

They want to know what Musk meant, too! ;-) This is arguably *enough* to prove that the claim that the funds are secured was untrue - because the securing would have to include an agreement by the board - and to put him in jail (yes, I am really getting impatient now).

So I think that your speculations about the insane extra doubling of this loss-making carnival by building copies in China etc. may be highly premature. I can't believe you may talk about things like doubling of the factory now. The Tesla bonds are already rated as junk by everybody - and you propose to double the debt? It's becoming equivalent to communism. That was also a catastrophic crippling of the countries' economies etc. but the communist leaders wanted to expand the camp of misery further across the world.

The Tesla board wants to eliminate Musk from the game in the next week:

          US Dollar clinches fresh YTD highs beyond 96.00      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • The index moves higher to record fresh tops in the 96.00 region.
  • Yields of the US 10-year note tumble to lows near the 2.90% handle.
  • US CPI for the month of July next of relevance in the docket.

The greenback, in terms of the US Dollar Index (DXY), is extending the upside momentum to levels above the critical 96.00 mark, recording at the same time fresh yearly peaks.

US Dollar bid ahead of data

The index clinched tops in the 96.10 region following a wave of selling pressure against the buck’s competitors, with EUR/USD and GBP/USD dropping to fresh YTD lows.

A news run by the Financial Times highlighting the ECB’s concerns over the exposure of some EU banks (Unicredit, BNP Paribas, BBVA) to Turkey’s assets amidst the sharp sell off in the Turkish Lira appears to have triggered the selling wave in the risk-associated universe.

Looking ahead, US inflation figures measured by the CPI for the month of July is due later in the NA session, while US-China trade dispute and Turkey should also be in centre stage ahead in the day.

US Dollar relevant levels

As of writing the index is gaining 0.46% at 96.03 and a breakout of 96.18 (high Aug.10) would aim for 96.51 (high Jul.5 2017) and then 97.87 (61.8% Fibo of the 2017-2018 drop). On the downside, the next support is located at 95.10 (10-day SMA) seconded by 94.90 (10-day SMA) and finally 94.08 (low Jul.26).

          Roquan Smith joins fraternity of infamous Chicago Bears 1st-round holdouts      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
When the Chicago Bears selected linebacker Roquan Smith in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the feeling around Halas Hall and the rest of the football universe was that they landed a can’t-miss prospect and an instant starter. And that may still be the case. Unfortunately, no one knows because Smith has yet to practice with the team at training camp; his contract dispute continues on and there’s been little news to suggest the sides are inching closer to a deal. Smith isn’t the only Bears first-rounder to ever miss critical training camp time because of a holdout.

          Could the DCEU Pull off a “Son of Batman” Feature Film?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A feature film of the Son of Batman would likely be a great idea for the DCEU if they would pull the trigger and make it happen. The animated features are all well and good, but people want live action these days and without it the DC universe is quickly falling behind. The DCEU really has to do something to finally be able to pull into a headlong competition with the MCU, even if that shouldn’t be the guiding principle of their success. Right now though they are seriously trailing and it’s been obvious since the Snyder-era that the shadows

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit AUDIE CORNISH, HOST: Already for many Americans, there are few options when it comes to high-speed broadband. And the reason, says Zoe Chace with our Planet Money team, goes back to a moment when the U.S. decided to go one way and the rest of the world went another. ZOE CHACE, BYLINE: That moment, March 14th, 2002, a bunch of people from the Federal Communications Commission pondering an existential question. There's this brand-new cable coming into your home with the Internet on it. What is this thing? Did you really sit around and say, like, what is this? Is this a phone? Is this a letter, like... MICHAEL POWELL: I have to tell you, we did exactly that. CHACE: Michael Powell was chair of the FCC back then. Now, he's head lobbyist for the cable industry. This was the problem he was facing.

          How to Have Better Sex, According to Your Zodiac Sign      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Your bedroom (or bathroom) sessions might be the living, sweating and breathy reenactment of that hotel scene in Shame, but that doesn’t mean you should stop yourself from having your best sex life. You work 40+ hours a week, have routine existential crises on Wednesday, and still manage to get ghosted by f*ckboys in your spare time—you deserve to have your best sex (even if that sex is just with yourself). After all, better is better.

You could talk to sex experts, sex therapists and porn stars to figure out how to step up our sex-game, but why not turn to astrology? Sure, sex experts are obviously experts in the realm of sex, foreplay and chemistry, but we’re not only about innovating coitus; we’re also about innovating sex-related advice.

Even though you might be an adamant commitmentphobe with a dollop of trust issues, you probably trust your zodiac sign with your life, your death and your beauty regime (and same). So, why not trust your zodiac sign with your junk, too?

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You have a to-do list for your to-do lists, and they’re all color coordinated. As the self-awarded productive zodiac sign, you need order even in these consistently chaotic times. It might seem silly to send bae a pre-bang itinerary, but you function better when you’re organized, and you shouldn’t treat y
