Shane Koyczan: "To This Day" ... for the bullied and beautiful

100 Websites You Should Know and Use Entertainment Meet David Peterson, who developed Dothraki for Game of Thrones There are seven different words in Dothraki for striking another person with a sword. Among them: “hlizifikh,” a wild but powerful strike; “hrakkarikh,”a quick and accurate strike; and “gezrikh,” a fake-out or decoy strike. But you won’t find these words in George R. למי אכפת מהתקן של הקמח המלא, ומאיזה קמח מכינים לחם מלא? (כתב: אורי מאיר-צ'יזיק) לפני כשנה פנה אלי יריב ספקטור היקר וביקש ממני להחליף אותו בועדת התקינה העוסקת בקמח. הוא סיפר לי שהוא יושב בועדה מטעם המועצה לצרכנות כי ביקשו ממנו1 , אבל הוא לא ממש מבין בקמח והוא מרגיש שאם ישב בועדה מישהו שכן מבין בקמח אז הוא יוכל באמת להגן על האינטרס הציבורי. לא ידעתי אז לאן אני נכנס – לא הבנתי בתקינה ובדיעבד מסתבר שגם לא הבנתי מספיק בקמח. אבל הבנתי שזה חשוב ויריב ביקש, אז אני קפצתי למים. מכון התקנים הוא גוף לא כל-כך מוכר לציבור הרחב, אך מדובר במוסד מרכזי וחשוב שמשפיע כמעט על כל דבר שקורה לנו – החומרים מהם בנוי ביתנו, הרכב הדלק של האוטו, מבנה הכסא עליו אנו יושבים ועוד ועוד… – כולם חייבים לעמוד בתקנים שנקבעים במכון.

Working with Noise Working with NoisePublished: Sept 24, 2013 for Houdini 12.5 An introductory workshop on using noise to artistically direct your scene. While the course starts at an introductory level later topics will need an intermediate knowledge of Houdini. Topics covered include what is the difference between random and noise functions. Creating a drunken walk algorithm. Contiguous and non-contiguous noise, the different types of noise functions in Houdini, and how to shape noise.

Box: Robotically-Manipulated Rectangles Become Projection-Mapped 3D Illusions Big robots, subtle effects. That’s the result in “Box,” a mesmerizing set of etudes on three-dimensional projection-mapped illusions. Spun and levitated on two robots – the type you’d normally see in auto manufacturing and the like – rectangular projection surfaces transform into three-dimensional spaces for a wide range of effects. Each basic element of technique here is familiar, but as we reach an apex of neo-baroque digital experimentation, those techniques fuse into magical illusions, each more dazzling than the last. It’s filmmaking, but everything is captured in-camera.

BOX DEMO - .work Info: While collaborating with the geniuses at Bot & Dolly in beautiful San Francisco, Munkowitz was tasked to Design Direct a truly unique piece called BOX.. The piece was originally supposed to function as a Technology Demo, but Munkowitz and the team quickly realized it's visual potential and transformed it into a Design and Performance Piece… The resulting short film is a one-of-a-kind visual and technological achievement due to the very special combination of talent and gear behind the doors of the B&D facility... The piece was essentially grounded on the principles of Stage Magic, invoking five of the basic categorizations of Illusionary.. The $200K lesson I learned from getting shot A few weeks ago, I wrote an essay for this website about the time two young black men shot me in Washington, D.C. The purpose of the article was to bring a new and personal perspective to an ongoing debate about racial profiling that had grown particularly pitched at the time. This article is a preface to that story, which I hope will serve a similar purpose, but with respect to a completely different debate. Right now, a number of conservative groups, with financial backing from well-heeled fellow travelers like Charles and David Koch, are engaged in a campaign to convince young, uninsured people not to enroll in Obamacare — to remain uninsured rather than enter and strengthen the state-based health insurance markets the Affordable Care Act is building.

Rue89 74% des Français déclarent réprouver les stéréotypes sexistes, mais plus de deux sur trois sont incapables de les identifier. « Les stéréotypes sont aujourd’hui banalisés et même intériorisés [...], il faut tomber dans la caricature pour que cela interpelle spécifiquement », rappelait en mars l’étude menée par Mediaprism et le Laboratoire de l’égalité. Chaque jour apportant son lot de contrariétés féministes, d’articles, notes de blogs dénonçant ces stéréotypes, tempêtant, sans que cela ne change grand-chose, j’ai pris à la lettre les recommandations de Mediaprism et je suis allée chercher les dix meilleures productions de ces dernières années qui inversent les rôles. « Defined Lines »
