Queen of Top!Rukia

This majestic Friesian horse received an awesome clip job giving him a stunning pair of black wings which he wears so well that we keep waiting for him to take flight. This magnificent pegasus’ horse’s name is Wout and his owner is Swedish equestrian Malin Hellstedt. The extraordinary pair were photographed last year in Gothenburg, Sweden participating in EuroHorse, Scandinavia’s biggest equestrian fair. Queen of Top!Rukia.

As copyeditor here at Gear Patrol, I’m responsible for the words.

How to Expand Your Vocabulary

All the words. All the thousands of words that you read every day (if you’re loyal) on this esteemed publication. So by the nature of my job, it’s in my best interest to know enough words to fill an SAT coursebook. (To this day I’m convinced that “obfuscate” is the word that got me a 710 in critical reading.) There are plenty who pay their bills with words — journalists, marketers, social media workers (someday there’ll be a tidy word for that) — and there are more than plenty who don’t. On a less cynical note, we all use email and text messaging, so strengthening vocabulary is just another way of empowering ourselves to communicate more efficiently and with clearer intention, and to better hear others. Every English teacher I ever had told me I should keep a dictionary in my backpack at all times, never mind the fact that the sheer girth of a such a thing protruding from a bag is enough to give a kid scoliosis.

Insights into Sexism: Male Status and Performance Moderates Female-Directed Hostile and Amicable Behaviour

Although there is much research dedicated to understanding sexist behaviour, we have almost no insight into what triggers this behaviour and the individuals that initiate it. Although social constructionist theory argues that sexism is a response towards women entering a male dominated arena, this perspective doesn’t explain why only a subset of males behave in this way. We argue that a clearer understanding of sexist behaviour can be gained through an evolutionary perspective that considers evolved differences in intra-sexual competition. We hypothesised that female-initiated disruption of a male hierarchy incites hostile behaviour from poor performing males who stand to lose the most status. GET IN LOSER, WE'RE GOING TO BOLDLY GO.

All of Liquid Television is Now Available Online!

Commissioned by MTV but airing here on SBS on Saturday nights, it was a concentrated dose of weirdness, combining short skits and the odd – very odd – ongoing series to present a kind of cutting edge cultural melange. A whole generation soaked a little Liquid TV along with the intoxicants of their choice before heading out for the evening – it was, to paraphrase Mojo Nixon, a glorious time on the planet Earth. And now it’s back! have got all three seasons online for research and educational purposes – 27 episodes of surreality. Some of Liquid Television‘s more popular segments went on the greater acclaim – cyberpunk action series Aeon Flux first saw the light of day here, as did Beavis and Butthead, but there’s a whole bunch of deeper cuts worth your time, such as pastel-toned satire Dog-Boy and and the bizarre biker/doll action series, Winter Steele.

It was June 1977, the very early days of the microcomputer industry. The founders of Microsoft, Bill Gates and Paul Allen, were amongst those heading home to Albuquerque from the National Computer Conference in Dallas.

In the September/October 1977 edition of "Personal Computing" magazine, Henry Gilroy provided the following report on the introduction of the Petals Around the Rose brain teaser to his fellow travelers on the return journey. Heading back to Albuquerque on a hot, humid Texas evening, the party from Personal Computing fell in with a gang from Microsoft. A couple of MITs folks were also in the crowd.

8-bit music, or chiptune, is synthesized electronic music used in old computers, consoles and arcade machines. It's a part of culture for people who grew up in the late 70s and 80s, and it is still very popular among geeks. The sound was produced by the PSG - Programmable Sound Generator - a sound chip that synthesized several waveforms and often noises.

The waveform generator could produce two or three simple waveforms, which are pulse wave, square wave, triangle wave and the sawtooth wave. It also had a pseudo-random-noise generator (PRNG). There's a very interesting video on YouTube by The 8-Bit Guy, How Oldschool Sound/Music worked, where he tells about how the sound was created in different computers and how different approaches and tricks let the game developers create the legendary music with very limited hardware. Let's take a look at what I have created and read further to see what it's all about and how to build it. #Commodore 64 Let's take a look at Commodore 64. TreeSheets. A "hierarchical spreadsheet" that is a great replacement for spreadsheets, mind mappers, outliners, PIMs, text editors and small databases. Suitable for any kind of data organization, such as todo lists, calendars, project management, brainstorming, organizing ideas, planning, requirements gathering, presentation of information, etc.

It's like a spreadsheet, immediately familiar, but much more suitable for complex data because it's hierarchical. It's like a mind mapper, but more organized and compact. Roxy lalonde is a transgirl - skyliting: medievalpoc: doublehamburgerjack: ... Kerry Ivers - Home page.
