A Crisis of Anxiety Among Aid Workers Photo An idyllic Mediterranean beach in Tunisia is not usually a place of high anxiety, but that’s where I spent the worst day of my life. I hadn’t slept in three nights and called in sick to work because I could no longer think. I felt I was losing my mind and spent the day as a zombie on the beach, feeling empty and alone on the sand.

Get Swinging in Boston on these Glowing LED Hoops In Boston, playgrounds are no longer just for kids. Twenty LED-lit circular swings have been installed outdoors as a part of "Swing Time," Boston's first interactive sculpture installation.

LED lights embedded in the swings activate and change color as each swing moves, returning to a dim white light when static. The piece is designed to blend Boston's design community with its expanding technology sector while playfully engaging residents.

CMYK lamp by Dennis Parren Dutch Design Week: this lamp by designer Dennis Parren casts a network of coloured shadows. Three different-coloured LEDs project light upward from a circular platform at the base of the CMYK lamp, past thin white metal bars that split the light to cast cyan, magenta and yellow shadows onto surrounding surfaces. Red, green and blue shadows are created where the different colours overlap. Cyan, magenta and yellow, along with black, make up the CMYK subtractive colour model used in printing, while red, green and blue make up the RGB additive colour model common to electronic screens.
The Jewish brain : A technical analysis of its psychotic tendencies - The Phora The Jewish brain : A technical analysis of its psychotic tendencies By Frank Sprinklehopper (Ashkenazi Jew and Scientist) Nov 2008. Now that i have cooled down a little, Draft 2 of this essay has been modified inline with another project which understands sub population behaviour such as jewish operating as a niche in complex system evolution. To summarize the jewish system is purely an expression of the dopamine role within the brain..in effect the jewish system behaves like dopamine. This theory will be falsifiable in the next few years, when non ashkenazi genomes are scanned for alterations on chromosome 10q21.3-10q22.3. and their rates of dopamine dysfunction calculated.

After hearing Metronomy's latest track Month of Sundays, Callum Cooper pitched the idea for a video created using spinning camera effects that make the viewer feel as if they're moving. "The effect I wanted to create was that of circular vection or more widely the illusions of self-motion," Cooper told Dezeen. The video captures the four band members among the raw concrete structures, elevated walkways and curving stairwells of the estate, which was designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon in the 1950s and officially opened in 1982.
