TetraBox Light by Ed Chew Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space. Musings and articles: How to hold the pencil The least frequently asked question about drawing is “How do you hold the pencil?” Most people are simply unaware that there is more than one way to hold it. They unconsciously use the writing pen grip they learned in elementary school, and it does not occur to them to even think of changing it.

It is by no means the best way or even a fast way. Instead, this method is aimed at thinking and setting up the human form in a threedimensional space.

UFO at NFL game A large, “cigar-shaped” UFO was spotted moving very swiftly in footage aired during an NFL game, on Sunday Oct. 23 in New Orleans. It was argued in an AOL article that the craft was caused by “insects that got caught in that interlaced video as they’re flying through with a wing beat frequency, and the frames are being captured at a frequency… that causes that look,” according to a member of MUFON, and similar sentiments were expressed by a special effects expert, who also stated that he was “sure that there’s a conventional explanation,” which shows us that his mind was made up before he ever saw any footage. I have to say that, since the object goes behind the church in two of the frames of the video, it seems highly unlikely to me that such an explanation is adequate. Assuming it is a UFO far enough away from the camera to be behind the church steeples, that means that it is LARGE, and for an object of that size, it is moving FAST.
