I will give you two choices. first, Let It Go Where It's Supposed To, which is the source of my most recent tattoo: and/or Summer of 89 (this is like picking my favorite children. SO HARD TO PICK) - holly #ravingfangirl
Achievement unlocked. - Steele Lawman
I liked "Let It Go... " best but they were both very good. Butch is kinda dreamy. - MoTO: Team Marina

Done. But also, WHUT?? : " November 2007, Walker and his family lost all of their possessions, including the masters to every song he had ever recorded, when the Malibu home he was renting from Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers burned down as a result of a wildfire in Southern California.[21] He titled his next album Sycamore Meadows after the street the house was on." - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

I have a bunch of posts in draft status. I’m excited about them while I’m at work, but the instant I clock out, my motivation drains. :(
Expecting a person who belongs to a group who is constantly discriminated against to "just get a job" is like asking an armless man to climb a ladder. Yes, it is possible, but it's harder than you think (or would like to believe it is to suit your own prejudices).
Beloved Illustrator Mary Engelbreit Blasted Over Ferguson Artwork -
Beloved Illustrator Mary Engelbreit Blasted Over Ferguson Artwork
"The print in question, called In the USA, depicts an African-American mother and child, in Engelbreit’s signature orbicular style, contemplating a newspaper that reads “Hands Up! Don’t Shoot.” Floating text reads, “No One Should Have to Teach Their Children This In The USA.” The print was priced at $49.99, with all proceeds going to the Michael Brown Jr. Memorial Fund, which supports the family of Michael Brown, the Missouri teenager who was gunned down by police two weeks ago. “[T]hese events unfolding now in my hometown and across the country, shining a light on the ugly racism that still runs rampant in our country, made me think that maybe this drawing could help in some small way,” wrote Engelbreit in her post." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"In a follow-up Facebook post (inexplicably removed and deemed “offensive” by the social media platform), Engelbreit responded to critics, standing by the print as a statement on the “ugly, hard truth of racial profiling,” adding: I also thought about disabling the comments today and just let those that wanted to buy the print do so. But then I thought, Well, I posted it—I should see... more... - Jessie

Ferguson Feeds Off the Poor: Three Warrants a Year Per Household -
"A report issued just last week by the nonprofit lawyer’s group ArchCity Defenders notes that in the court’s 36 three-hour sessions in 2013, it handled 12,108 cases and 24,532 warrants. That is an average of 1.5 cases and three warrants per Ferguson household. Fines and court fees for the year in this city of just 21,000 people totaled $2,635,400. The sum made the municipal court the city’s second-biggest source of revenue." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Monkey selfie: The government says it can't be copyrighted. -
Monkey selfie: The government says it can't be copyrighted.
"This week, the U.S. Copyright Office weighed in decisively on the side of Wikimedia, declaring in updated rules that no, you cannot claim the rights to a photo taken by a primate. (Two law professors I spoke with earlier this month said pretty much the same.) "Because copyright law is limited to 'original intellectual conceptions of the author,' the Office will refuse to register a claim if it determines that a human being did not create the work," the rule states. Then it gets into some pretty priceless specifics:" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The Office will not register works produced by nature, animals, or plants. Likewise, the Office cannot register a work purportedly created by divine or supernatural beings, although the Office may register a work where the application or the deposit copy(ies) state that the work was inspired by a divine spirit. Examples: • A photograph taken by a monkey. • A mural painted by an... more... - Jessie
Thing about elephant paintings is that those aren't just trained elephants, but the trainer is coaching them in real time in every brush stroke. If I put a brush in someone else's hand, then physically guided their hand through the entire painting, who painted it? - Andrew C (✔)
In that scenario where it's two humans, I imagine both people could claim it and the lawyers make money. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Realistically, that's just like asking who has the rights to a film—the director or the cameraman, and the answer is: you better have put something into writing before you started filming or you're going to be paying lawyers a lot of money. And since, presumably, elephants can't sign contracts either, you might be SOL. - Victor Ganata
I don't know if this would apply where there's definite human agency though. The case with the monkey is that he just left the camera out there and the monkey did whatever he wanted. - Victor Ganata
It's interesting that U.S. copyright law would apply, but I guess that makes sense if Slater wants to enforce a takedown notice on a U.S.-based organization. - Victor Ganata
I read somewhere today that there's a potential thorny issue for any photos triggered automatically since no human would have taken the shot. - Mark H
But with a case like that, I imagine it would be more difficult to prove that there was no human agency involved. - Victor Ganata
If you can argue that a human was involved in setting up camera traps then you can surely argue a human was also involved in flying to another country, traipsing through the jungle, finding some monkeys, then handing a camera to one. - Mark H
True, but if you claimed that you actually physically shot the picture (even if you really didn't) and therefore you are the author, how would anyone know? - Victor Ganata
Like if Slater didn't tell the real story and just claimed he had taken a shot (however improbably very close) of a monkey, who would've been around to contradict him? - Victor Ganata
I've been thinking about that, but part of the charm of the image is the idea that it's a "monkey selfie". - Andrew C (✔)

International Dunhuang Project: The Married Monks of Kroraina
Show all
"The kingdom of Kroraina florished in the middle of the Taklamakan desert in the first centuries of this millennium, and is now known to us through the buildings and artefacts preserved by the desert until their discovery and excavation by explorers and archaeologists. Among the most important of the discoveries from the kingdom were documents providing a detailed (if incomplete) picture of the daily life of Buddhist monks in the region in the 3rd to 4th centuries." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Over 700 of these documents were excavated by Aurel Stein in the early 20th century and are now in the collections of the British Library and the National Museum of India. Most of them are letters, written in the Gandhārī language and the Kharoṣṭhi script, on wooden tablets. A document was usually made of two wooden tablets placed together, with the content of the letter inside. The two parts were bound with string and sealed with clay, and the cover tabled was inscribed with the name of the addressee." - Maitani

First day of school meant I could walk the kids there (and return home). Then I walked to the Google shuttle, walked a bit to lunch (and back), and then, on a lark, I decided to time walking the Steven's Creek Trail home from Google. It took one hour and forty minutes to do a bit over 7 miles. - Louis Gray

"Our manager came up with a game to amuse ourselves at these meetings that he called Bonehead Bingo. Bonehead was a term some engineers used to describe someone doing something lacking thought or common sense. Every Toolbox meeting our manager handed out bingo cards with nine squares, some of which had the names of people pre-filled in on the squares—these were the most common offenders asking a lot of silly questions during the project meetings." - Cristo

Phase I testing means we're not even sure whether this won't kill you instantaneously as we ramp up the dosing (although presumably enough of the lab animals survived to suggest that it's *probably* OK.)
Trying to deploy a vaccine that's only in Phase I trials during a massive epidemic? They're gonna blame you for anything that goes wrong. - Victor Ganata
Since it's a vaccine, it's going to be most effective in people who *aren't* already infected (which might be a little difficult to deploy if you're in an area that has good reason not to trust Westerners injecting people with substances they aren't sure won't kill you.) There might be some efficacy in injecting people who are already sick, but the time course of Ebola doesn't really give you much time to develop a robust immune response. - Victor Ganata
So if you inject an uninfected person and they die, you are probably screwed. - Victor Ganata
