You cannot always be a storm of a person.
It is utterly human to be occasionally fragile.
It does not give your sadness power to
admit that sometimes your hands shake like
houses in a hurricane when you think
of where you’ll be two years from now.

Nosso Deus é criativo e inovador, não faz nada do mesmo jeito. Ele pensa em coisas novas pra sua vida, caminhos floridos e muitos sorrisos no meio disso tudo. Pare de fazer comparações da tua vida com a vida do teu próximo. Pense no poder de Deus e se eleve aos mesmos pensamentos que os Dele, deixa Ele criar, desenhar, se expressar em você. Deixa Ele trazer o novo, único, incomparável. Não limite o poder de Deus, porque Ele não se limita a tempo, espaço ou circunstância. Ele é incrível e pode fazer tudo aquilo que você tem sonhado.

Researchers Aim for ‘Perfect’ Solar Absorber

The key to creating a material that would be ideal for converting solar energy to heat is tuning the material’s spectrum of absorption just right. It should absorb virtually all wavelengths of light that reach Earth’s surface from the sun — but not much of the rest of the spectrum, since that would increase the energy that is reradiated by the material, and thus lost to the conversion process.

Now, researchers at MIT say they have accomplished the development of a material that comes very close to the “ideal” for solar absorption. The material is a two-dimensional metallic dielectric photonic crystal, and has the additional benefits of absorbing sunlight from a wide range of angles and withstanding extremely high temperatures. Perhaps most importantly, the material can also be made cheaply at large scales.

'I Love Her Hair!' On Racism and Internalization 

Hi All! 

This video was made in response to a common defense I’ve seen of problematic videos that states people should be able to have enough personal agency to tell a video they’re watching is racist. This defense completely glosses over the fact that people internalize things they see and hear every day without consciously realizing it. It’s not ‘magical racism powers’ but there is certainly an element of brainwashing to the media we consume.

I gave some personal instances of my own internalization in this video, so trust me when I say it’s very real, very problematic, and something we have to consciously unlearn every day. 

Thanks for watching.
