50 Powerful Photos Capture Extraordinary Moments In The Wild. These amazing photos show animals in a way that you’ve never seen them before. Each image serves as a reminder that we share the planet with some truly awe-inspiring creatures.

The Profound Impact Sound, Vibration, and Frequency Have In our Daily Existence. Nikola Tesla once said, “If you want to learn the secrets of the universe, think of energy, frequency, and vibration.” And indeed this is the case. Just lookaround you and realize that what may to our immediate physical senses seem tobe a solid physical reality made of smaller and larger building blocks, isactually a profoundly complex, yet fundamentally simple ocean ofvibration, harmonics, and resonance. Everything we experience in this reality is one expression or another of the way sound and vibration play themselves out as an emanation of source energy.

This is why music affects us so profoundly- it is of us and we are ofit, we are collections of sound waves and as integral notes in harmonicorchestra of all that is, certain sound frequencies resonate or vibrate withcertain parts of ourselves either preferred or not preferred. The universal language of frequency and sound are also what account for much of how we create and experience our realities. Image Source Laura W. The Profound Impact Sound, Vibration, and Frequency Have In our Daily Existence. How Physics Gives Structure to Nature. How do bees do it? The honeycombs in which they store their amber nectar are marvels of precision engineering, an array of prism-shaped cells with a perfectly hexagonal cross-section. The wax walls are made with a very precise thickness, the cells are gently tilted from the horizontal to prevent the viscous honey from running out, and the entire comb is aligned with the Earth’s magnetic field.

Yet this structure is made without any blueprint or foresight, by many bees working simultaneously and somehow coordinating their efforts to avoid mismatched cells. The ancient Greek philosopher Pappus of Alexandria thought that the bees must be endowed with “a certain geometrical forethought.” And who could have given them this wisdom, but God? According to William Kirby in 1852, bees are “Heaven-instructed mathematicians.” Why hexagons, though?

How Physics Gives Structure to Nature. Colouring. DIY Raspberry Pi WiFi VPN/TOR Router. Surf the Internet securely with your very own portable WiFi VPN/TOR router. You can configure a Raspberry Pi with Linux and some extra software to connect to a VPN server of your choice. The VPN connection encrypts your internet traffic so that hackers and spies can’t figure out what web sites you are visiting, and the web sites you are visiting can’t tell which computer you are surfing from. Not sure what board is right for you? Make:’s interactive Board Guide lets you dial into the field to find the best one for your needs. The router is small and portable, so you can plug it in anywhere, adding secure internet browsing to any occasion, from your room to the café.

The project consists of a Raspberry Pi, two USB WiFi dongles, an SD card, and a power plug. If you don’t have Ethernet available, your router can connect to a WiFi network in addition to creating its own, acting as a bridge between your personal WiFi access point and an insecure WiFi.

Social Media. 2016 Full Moon Calendar. The moon shows its full face to Earth once a month. Well, sort of. In fact, the same side of the moon always faces the planet, but part of it is in shadow. And, in reality most of the time the "full moon" is never perfectly full. Only when the moon, Earth and the sun are perfectly aligned is the moon 100 percent full, and that alignment produces a lunar eclipse. And sometimes — once in a blue moon — the moon is full twice in a month (or four times in a season, depending on which definition you prefer). (FYI: There was a blue moon in 2016 on May 21.) The next full moon will be the Hunter's Moon and will rise on Sunday, Oct. 16. WATCH: Full Moon: Why Does It Happen? Many cultures have given distinct names to each recurring full moon. This is when full moons will occur in 2016, according to NASA: Other Native American people had different names.

Amateur astronomer Keith Cooley has a brief list of the moon names of other cultures, including Chinese and Celtic, on his website. Isometric Drawing Tool. Silk – Interactive Generative Art. Recursive Drawing. Penrose tiles.
