Portraits of 4 sisters every year for 36 years, 1975 – 2010 [36 pictures] In 1975, photographer Nicholas Nixon took a picture of his wife and her 3 sisters, who at the time ranged in age from 15 to 25. Then he did it again the next year and suggested that they make it an annual tradition. The women agreed and they have all consistently been a part of the remarkable project now for going on 40 years. In each photo, the Brown Sisters pose in the same order — Heather, Mimi, Bebe, and Laurie… Update… These photos have been removed by request of the photographer’s representative. You can learn more about Nicholas Nixon’s series at the Fraenkel Gallery.

You probably have a cubicle, right? One morning, you come in and things are missing! This happens to us every single day… people walk into our office (which is a small space the three of us share and doesn’t have a lock) when we aren’t here and start snacking on our food! Suddenly, you go to open the Thin Mints and there is one cookie left in the sleeve. So we decided to call our favorite private eye and find out what kind of trap we could set for them. Judd Bank from CPI Investigations has helped us in the past with our private investigation needs, so we called him up to find out how to find the food offender.

The delicate relationship I have with my keyboard The final panel to this comic has been removed, and so was my "defense" of it. Neither one was particularly clever. I make comics to make people laugh, not to upset them. To anyone who was upset by it: I'm sorry. Revolution 1848 - Tafelbild Das Tafelbild behandelt die sozialen und politischen Bedingungen der Revolution und die Entwicklungen, die zur Revolution 1848 führten; außerdem die Spaltung des Vorparlaments. Auf dem Tafelbild sind vier relevante Phasen der beginnenden Märzrevolution 1848 aufgezeigt: In der Gesellschaft des Vormärz existieren Spannungen politischer und sozialer Natur, die durch ökonomische Krisen verstärkt werden. Unter dem Eindruck der Februarrevolution in Frankreich kommt es zur Formulierung von Märzforderungen und zur Bildung der Märzministerien. Revolutionäre Aktionen in Wien und Berlin führen zur Bildung des Vorparlaments, in dem Radikale und Gemäßigte keinen Konsens finden. Laden Sie das Tafelbild hier als Bilddatei (png) oder als PDF-Dokument (bessere Auflösung) herunter. Das Tafelbild “Märzrevolution 1848” ist fast etwas zu umfangreich, um es in einer Unterrichtsphase im Unterrichtsgespräch zu entwickeln.

Future of Space Exploration: Armies of Info-Gathering Bots The way we explore space is set to change drastically in the near future, according to Wolfgang Fink, associate in physics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. While we currently rely on single single-spacecraft missions that are commanded from Earth, we will soon see virtual armies of cheap, expendable space robots deployed to other heavenly bodies. They’ll be able to command themselves and other robots, making them a cohesive yet independent unit of exploration. Fink’s vision centers on an exploratory trip to Titan, Saturn’s largest moon. He sees sending a group of rovers, lake landers and an airship that will float above the moon. Today, space missions rely on Earth-based orders.
