April 17th 1964: Ford Mustang debuts

On this day in 1964, the Ford Motor Company introduced their new sports car - the Ford Mustang - to the public. The Mustang was one of the first ‘pony cars’, which are smaller sports car-like coupes. The car had debuted two years earlier at the United States Grand Prix, but Ford introduced their new car to the public at the New York World’s Fair in 1964. Ford received over 22,000 orders from around the world on the first day, and the car’s popularity only increased from there. The model’s fame was cemented when a Mustang appeared in the James Bond film ‘Goldfinger’ in September 1964. The Mustang is now approaching its sixth generation, and has changed a lot since the 1964 version. Last year marked the 50th anniversary of this legendary American car, and Ford celebrated with a limited edition 50th anniversary 2015 Mustang GT.

The circle of intellectual inspiration

The scientist sees beauty
where other people
see only nothing.

With her mind
she’s able
to see under the surface,

making her able
to see all sorts
of interconnected systems.

You may see a flower,
but she might see
far more than that.

letting light be the trigger
for combining molecules…

…to form the plant
in such a perfect way

She may ask her friend,
the mathematician,
for why the plant is shaped the way it is.

The mathematician may develop
a hypothesis,
find rules for formations…

…such as phi,
the golden ratio,
or psi, the golden angle.

But why is it the way it is?
Maybe he has to ask his friend,
the thinker.

The thinker may develop
so many hypotheses
that you have to choose carefully.

Maybe all these hypotheses
will annihilate each other
letting allow only few to hide the correct answer.

The thinker may come to the conclusion
that everything could be
a mathematical structure.

But what does it have
for a philosophical value?
Maybe he needs his friend, the philosopher.

The philosopher may get lost
in his thoughts,
creating further hypotheses.

This could lead him
to questions like

“What is the human consciousness
supposed to be
if everything was mathematical?”

He tells his friend,
the writer,
about his difficult topic.

Lost in thrill
she becomes inspired,
writes about the universe’s oddities of hidden structures.

This may become her new book,
yet she decides to tell his friend,
the artist, about her project.

He listens carefully,
is fascinated by the idea
of the universe being mathematical.

Inspiration gets him,
as he begins to paint
from deep inside his chest.

He decides to ask his friend,
the writer,
if she needs illustrations.

Soon they’ll publish the book,
that’s merely speculation,
yet filled with so many brilliant ideas.

The scientist
will stumble across this book
as it was fate.

In the end
she didn’t even know
that it all started with her own simple question.

How Cambodia is healing from Khmer Rouge genocide - CNN.com

Forty years after the fall of Phnom Penh to the Khmer Rouge, Cambodians are still struggling to heal from one of modern history’s worst genocides.

Today marks the 40th anniversary of the Khmer Rouge coming into power and killing nearly 2 million Cambodians during their regime. i know I’m a Japanese food blog, but as a Cambodian-American, I think it’s incredibly important to make note of today since it doesn’t seem to be getting much attention in mainstream media right now.

Robert Downey Jr. And Chris Evans Explain Why Iron Man And Captain America Fight

While many know that Captain America and Iron Man will clash over a superhuman registration act in Captain America: Civil War, the actors behind the icons—Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans—have hinted that their battle will stem from much deeper issues.

While speaking to reporters during an Avengers: Age of Ultron press event, Evans and Downey Jr. explained that Steve Rogers and Tony Stark are fundamentally different people. With contrasting viewpoints and ideologies, Cap and Iron Man won’t need much convincing to fight each other. And given Steve’s relationship to Howard Stark that Tony never had, there may be some jealousy fueling the punches as well.

“[Tony] Stark grew up under the shadow of this very close father son/relationship that Howard [Stark] had with Steve [Rogers, Captain America] so I’m sure that it’s driven by some unconscious motives,” Downey Jr. said. “At the same time, they’re two vastly different generations of moral psychology. And arguably, Cap’s is more righteous. But I think Tony is a realist. So that’s always a fun dynamic to play.”

If that weren’t enough, the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron will find Captain America and Iron Man waffling on their former ideologies. With their ideals inverted, each character will find themselves in new—and opposing-moral territory when Civil War arrives.

“This is why I think the next movie is going to be so effective - Civil War - because there’s a flip-flop in the way we approach things,” the actor said of Cap and Iron Man. “Tony’s always been a trailblazer,” Chris Evans told IGN. “He’s always been his own man and he bucks authority. He dances to the beat of his own drum. Cap comes from a world or order, and organization, and hierarchy, and structure. And I think after Cap 2 when SHIELD kind of fell that Cap kind of realized that you can’t necessarily trust the people around you - or you can’t trust the system. I think he now is kind of starting to follow his own heart, and do his own thing, and as a result there becomes this kind of flip-flop in perspective.”

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
