Mirror's Edge Parkour POV Francis Dupuis-Déri – L’anarchie dans la philosophie politique (2007) Francis Dupuis-Déri (né en 1966 à Montréal) est un écrivain et professeur québécois. Depuis 2006, il enseigne au département de science politique et à l’Institut de recherches et d’études féministes (IREF) de l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). Il a été chercheur au Massachusetts Institute of Technology et au Centre de recherche en éthique de l’Université de Montréal (CREUM). Introduction « Quel est le meilleur régime politique ? Assimiler ainsi l’anarchie à une forme dévoyée de la démocratie directe constitue une erreur grave qui appauvrit la philosophie politique. La typologie des régimes politiques : perspective quantitative Pendant plus de deux mille ans, la majorité des philosophes occidentaux influents se bornèrent à identifier trois idéal-types de régimes politiques purs : la monarchie, l’aristocratie et la démocratie . 2. Aristote est le premier qui souligne l’importance d’enrichir la classification mathématique des régimes d’une distinction liée à la moralité du régime.

Body Painter Transforms Humans Into Breathtaking Portraits Of Animals There’s more to this beautiful heron than meets the eye. It’s actually a human body covered intricately in paint. The stunning work was created by artist Shannon Holt, a body painter from Florida who’s known for her ability to transform the human body into a canvas for beautiful art. The piece is part of Holt’s “Florida Wildlife Series,” a collection of several animal portraits, all painstakingly drawn on human bodies. Each portrait is said to have taken Holt about six to 12 and a half hours to complete, according to Caters News. In a May interview with the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Holt explained what it is about body painting as a medium that she loves so much. “You can have a really beautiful work that transforms the body into a human sculpture or abstract piece that touches on art history, or is a master copy of an Italian Renaissance painting,” she told the news outlet. She added that she loves the “ephemeral” nature of body painting.

L'instrumentalisation de l'antifascisme Le premier juin, j’apprenais, stupéfait, l’annulation des projections en salle du film documentaire militant Dédale, un fil vers la démocratie. Cet événement, suite logique de toute une série d’autres faits similaires, était l’événement de trop : il me fallait enquêter sur cette mouvance antifasciste. Je voulais comprendre qui étaient ces (prétendus) antifascistes et pourquoi ils s’en prenaient systématiquement à des personnalités qui combattent l’oligarchie, l’impérialisme, les guerres néo-coloniales et qui, de façon générale, luttent courageusement pour un monde plus juste. Ces atteintes violentes à la liberté d’expression et à l’honneur de ces personnalités était tellement incohérentes qu’il me fallait enquêter pour comprendre et trouver un sens à cette sombre cabale. Histoire de l’antifascisme Les choses se compliquent juste après la victoire contre l’Axe, dès le début de la Guerre Froide en 1947. Mais l’antifascisme des années septante et quatre-vingt est critiqué, même à gauche.

Astrophysicist Writes Brutal Response To WSJ Article Claiming Science Has Proven God Exists Recently – Christmas Day, in fact – the Wall Street Journal published an article by a Christian apologist who boldly declared that science was “increasingly” making the case for God, year-after-year. Eric Metaxas is best known as a biographical writer, but he is also lauded (in conservative circles) for his work promoting the pro-life movement and making sweeping, outrageous conclusions about the existence of God based on whatever tenuous evidence seems handy at the time. If sweeping, outrageous conclusions be Metaxas bread-and-butter, than his Wall Street Journal article is perhaps his magnum opus. It’s a doozy. After subtitling his work “The odds of life existing on another planet grow ever longer. Intelligent design, anyone?” The arguments aren’t new. Today there are more than 200 known parameters necessary for a planet to support life—every single one of which must be perfectly met, or the whole thing falls apart.

How To Fathom Pi: Amazing Visual Illustrations Distribution of the first 123,201 digits of π mapped onto a red-yellow-blue Brewer palette and placed as circles on an Archimedean spiral by Martin Krzywinski Pi is, quite possibly, the most famous number known to man.* This fact is a little bit ironic, as we don’t actually have a number for pi. Well, not a complete number anyways, because pi never ends. If you try to pin it down to the decimal, you can’t do it—the decimal representation goes on endlessly, and it never settles into a repeating patters. If you are unfamiliar with this number, pi is the mathematical constant that represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and it is typically written as 3.14159 . However, (despite some minor set backs) the quest to understand pi continues. Recently, Cristian Ilies Vasile created an amazing way to visualize pi. This visual representation was created by a 41 year old individual who suffered brain damage after being attacked by muggers. Jolene Creighton
