Up until the discovery of petrolatum and the introduction of toxic chemicals, paints were created using natural ingredients such as: linseed oil, lime, casein from milk, turpentine, citrus oils, chalk and hemp oil. Natural pigments were also used to color the paint. However, this is not the case anymore. Although major paint manufacturers are now producing more environmentally friendly paints, a good majority of them can still contain more than 450 hazardous substances, mainly voc's. Voc's (Volatile Organic Compounds) belong to a family of chemicals that evaporate quickly and leave an undesirable odor such as toluene, xylene and formaldehyde.
These recipes offer sustainable and inexpensive ways to add unique colors to your home. By Bill Steen October/November 2006 If you’d like to create a warm and inviting living space, consider using homemade, eco-friendly paints. Using natural materials is a great way to bring the outdoors in, and they’re easier on your home because they can allow painted surfaces to release moisture naturally. Plus, most commercially manufactured paints contain toxic materials or petroleum-based ingredients that are energy-intensive to produce.

Paul Cézanne ( US pron.: / s eɪ ˈ z æ n / or UK / s ɨ ˈ z æ n / ; French: [pɔl sezan] ; 1839–1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th-century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne can be said to form the bridge between late 19th-century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism . Both Matisse and Picasso are said to have remarked that Cézanne "is the father of us all." Cézanne's often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable. He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields. The paintings convey Cézanne's intense study of his subjects.

A caliphate (from the Arabic خلافة or khilāfa, Turkish : Hilafet ) is an Islamic state led by a supreme religious as well as political leader known as a caliph (meaning literally a successor , i.e. a successor to the prophet Muhammad ). The term caliphate is often applied to successions of Muslim empires that have existed in the Middle East and Southwest Asia . Conceptually the caliphate represents the political unity of the entire community of Muslim faithful (the ummah ) ruled by a single caliph. In theory, the organization of a caliphate should be a constitutional theocracy , (the Constitution being the Constitution of Medina ), which means that the head of state , the Caliph , and other officials are representatives of the people and of Islam and must govern according to constitutional and religious law , or Sharia . In its early days, the first caliphate resembled elements of direct democracy (see shura ) and an elective monarchy . [ 1 ]
How much thought do you spare that dollar bill before you pass it through the drive-up window at your local Starbuck’s? If you’re like most people, probably not much. But that dollar bill of yours might have traveled the world. Or, if it’s unlucky, it might merely have circulated from one drive-though window to the next in your home town. And what about those dollar bills that come to you with oddball designs scrawled onto them with a ballpoint pen? Someone might have drawn glasses on old George Washington’s face.

net.art refers to a group of artists who worked in the medium of Internet art from 1994. The main members of this movement are Vuk Ćosić , Jodi.org , Alexei Shulgin , Olia Lialina , and Heath Bunting ( irational.org , Daniel García Andújar , Heath Bunting, Rachel Baker and Minerva Cuevas). Although this group was formed as a parody of avant garde movements by writers such as Tilman Baumgärtel, Josephine Bosma, Hans Dieter Huber and Pit Schultz, their individual works have little in common. The term "net.art" is also used as a synonym for net art or Internet art and covers a much wider range of artistic practices. In this wider definition, net.art means art that uses the Internet as its medium and that cannot be experienced in any other way. Often net.art has the Internet as (part of) its subject matter but this is certainly not required.
