21 Signs You Were An Orchestra Nerd

When we wax nostalgic about the days of high school, some tell stories of their athletic glory, others of their theatrical prowess, others of their audio-visual domination. But a select group, once nestled in the corners of amphitheaters and rehearsa…

Weird New State Of Matter Discovered In Most Unlikely Place

“The discovery of the odd arrangement — previously seen only in liquid helium, densely packed granules, and other non-biological systems — is more than a scientific curiosity, according to the statement. It could help lead to the development of optical circuits, light detectors, and other devices that transmit light with the efficiency of a crystal and the flexibility of a liquid.”

2014-02-26: I'm back home, JAPAN

I’m safely back home from Sochi!

Thank you for all of your support.
It’s regrettable that I couldn’t give my best performance, but I felt my skates were very me. 

It’s been four years since Vancouver.
It’s hard to believe I continued into Sochi, participating in two Olympics really wasn’t just my imagination.
It’s thanks to all the support I have received.

And above all else!
I am blessed with wonderful friends of Team Japan. 

Thank you all!

If you’re not opposed, AVFM: India, Korea, Japan, Chile, Many sources within articles on this site as well. And history, for good measure.

Then there’s things like this which are often erased:

You know when you hear of thousands of deaths and they feel the need to say “including women/children”? That makes you focus on the handful of “real” victims instead because people don’t care about men. Third world populations after war are usually 60-80% female, articles often focus on how hard it is now the men are inconveniently dead. Then look at what Boko Haram (links above) did to boys, did anyone give a shit? Did they buggery.

“De uma maneira súbita o conheci, em um domingo de verão no mês de fevereiro, por coincidência o mês mais alegre do ano, seria algum sinal? Me olhava com um olhar curioso, mas não avançava o sinal. Por mensagens conversamos, algo a partir daquele momento nascia. Eu sempre desconfiada, não estava mais, me sentia bem ao lado dele, confiante acreditei que daria certo. Mas como tudo que é bom, dura pouco, os fatos se tornaram desinteressantes, as mensagens pararam de chegar, nos afastamos de repente. Esperançosa, não pensei no pior, porém ontem, não mais verão, e sim em abril, num sábado, que teria tudo pra dar certo ou não, finalizei o quebra-cabeça. Tudo ficou claro, como a luz do sol, igual aquele domingo de verão em que nos conhecemos, lembra? Ao contrário do que pensava, a ficha caiu, as cartas ficaram sobre mesa, a verdade foi dita e vista, foi tudo um engano, uma ilusão, que resultou em um grande arrombo dentro de mim. Músicas serão evitadas, momentos serão ignorados, lágrimas estão sendo derramadas, mas quem mandou eu me entregar a você, quem Fernando? Agora eu só sinto uma mistura, angustiante em mim, aquela mistura de amor e ódio que ninguém consegue explicar, e só pessoas que amam de verdade sentem.”

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoes anti-LGBT bill

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed the state’s controversial “religious freedom” bill, which would have legalized discrimination against LGBT people and others that occurred in the name of religious beliefs. 

“To the supporters of the legislation, I want you to know that I understand that long-held norms about marriage and family are being challenged as never before. Our society is undergoing many dramatic changes,” she said. “However, I sincerely believe that Senate Bill 1062 has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve. It could divide Arizona in ways we cannot even imagine and no one would ever want.

"Religious liberty is a core American and Arizona value. So is non-discrimination.”

Whooooosh. That was scary close. Thank you, Gov. Brewer. 

Right here is where Lauren and I have been parked since yesterday. Both of us under the weather while daddy is back in Cali.

プレスは、味の点では、最低の淹れ方だよ。
簡単なだけ。

簡単?
そんなにかわらんけどな。
あんたは豆の選択とプレスコーヒーの淹れ方を間違ってるんだろうな。
下手に淹れるとエグ味まで盛大に出る。ウマ味とコクを出したところで
プレスするってのは、結構経験が必要。ドリップも同じだが。
