Some notes from Brazilian Lit. textes. Lots of Stabilo as you can see because the pastel highlighters are finally available in Brazil yayyy

Character design assigment !

for non french speakers: basically Mahé suffers from a very rare disease since she was born, until a strange alien breaks into the hospital’s window and gets into her body. curing her instantanely and giving her special abilities, which is super cool. But now all the scary TV people want her, which is super uncool. Fortunately the alien is still here, in her wig, preventing her from eventual danger.

Yes, sure its fun to see a lady spin around like that, but I had one of my friends ask me - “Where do you even use this mate?”

Here’s one application that I know very well off.


Spin Stabilization

If you have ever seen a rocket launch, you might know that sometimes the rockets are given a spin while launching. This is known as spin stabilization.

Basically, the rotational inertia of the rotating body will stabilize the rocket against any disturbances and help maintain its intended heading.

The same principle is used in rifling of firearms as well. **


YoYo DeSpin

Okay, now there is the question how to “De-spin” the rocket:

Well, you do what the lady does: stretch out your arms and you will slow down !

The rocket has weights connected to a cable that stretch out and almost immediately the rocket slows down. This maneuver is known as the YoYo DeSpin. ( Damn good name ! )

All thanks to the conservation of angular momentum !

Have a good one !


* Another method to stabilization : 3-axis stabilization

‘Sanctuary City’ Mayors Vow to Defy Trump’s Immigration Order
City officials, from New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Haven, Syracuse and Austin, Tex., said they were prepared for a protracted fight.
By Liz Robbins

Martin J. Walsh, Boston: “To anyone who feels threatened today, or vulnerable, you are safe in Boston. We will do everything lawful in our powerful to protect you. If necessary, we will use City Hall itself to shelter and protect anyone who’s targeted unjustly. They can use my office, they can use any office in this building. They’ll be able to use this building as a safe space.”

Bill de Blasio, New York: “We’re going to defend all of our people regardless of where they come from, regardless of their immigration status.”

Rahm Emanuel, Chicago: “I want to be clear: We’re going to stay a sanctuary city. There is no stranger among us. Whether you’re from Poland or Pakistan, whether you’re from Ireland or India or Israel and whether you’re from Mexico or Moldova, where my grandfather came from, you are welcome in Chicago as you pursue the American dream.”

Ed Lee, San Francisco, with Sam Liccardo (San Jose) and Libby Schaaf (Oakland): “We will not give in to threats, or political grandstanding. Together, the Bay Area will stay true to our values of inclusiveness, compassion and equality, and united against any and all efforts to divide our residents, our cities, and our country.”

Dawn over the Andes.

As the night fled over the sphere of the world, NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg snapped Bolivia from her vantage point out in space. The cordilleras Oriental and Occidental are clearly visible, with the huge white patches of the Salar de Uyuni sandwiched between them. The shadows of the western chain stretch halfway across Chile towards the Pacific Ocean. What a wonderful place our only world is, catches my throat every time I pause to pay attention to it….
