Two stormy whirling air masses collided over New Mexico, each with their own swirling updraft. The older storm has curved lines running through the clouds while the newer is still roiling with new convection currents. The image was a winner in the Weather Photographer of the Year competition.
Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier was a French nobleman and chemist central to the 18th-century chemical revolution and had a large influence on both the history of chemistry and the history of biology. He is widely considered in popular literature as the “father of modern chemistry”. Lavoisier is most noted for his discovery of the role oxygen plays in combustion. He recognized and named oxygen (1778) and hydrogen (1783). He predicted the existence of silicon (1787) and was also the first to establish that sulfur was an element (1777) rather than a compound. He discovered that, although matter may change its form or shape, its mass always remains the same.
At the height of the French Revolution, he was accused by Jean-Paul Marat of selling adulterated tobacco and of other crimes, and was eventually guillotined a year after Marat’s death.
elephantsneedwater a dit : I love the way you draw Liam!! And I love that you’re pairing your Fem!Ryder with Liam! (Correct me if I’m wrong lol)That’s my plan too. I’m just excited to have an interracial relationship in this game like I had with my femshep and Kaidan :)
I’m not pairing them for the moment *wink*, it depends if Liam is as interesting as he is cute, and if he is straight/bi (I always respect the sexual orientation chosen by the devs, after all there are friendships that are amazing too).
So, regarding Liam, we’ll see, even if I have a crush right now I still remain a bit cautious. Maybe I’m going to hate him in the end lol ! Maybe I’ll hate the game itself ! :D
But… can’t wait March, right ? =) (the 23rd for me)
NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg shot this amazing picture of these volcanic islands, along with Von Karman vortices in the clouds flowing around them. These form as masses of air split around protruding objects such as islands sticking out of the sea. Only four of the seven main islands are visible.
Some artists’ work is like a five-course meal at a Michelin-star restaurant and some other artists’ work is like a Sunday pot roast and yet other artists’ work is like a burger from the dollar menu.
All of those artists are good and worthwhile and filling in their own separate ways. I only wish that cheap, filling, dollar menu consumerist pop art were actually acknowledged by the Art World (capital A, capital W) as a valid style and medium and not just enjoyed ironically and only if the artist is making some Warholian statement about how images, like, get distorted every time you reproduce them, maaaan
Greece reports mass Turkish air incursions as tensions simmer - 2 February 2017
Greece reported mass incursions by Turkish military aircraft on Wednesday, amid tensions over Athens’ failure to hand over Turkish soldiers Ankara accuses of involvement in a coup attempt. Defense ministry officials said they had recorded 138 violations of Greek airspace over islands in the central and southern Aegean, an unusually high number. They were intercepted, they said. Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos criticized what he called Turkey’s “cowboy antics”. “We want peace, we are not looking for a fight or for trouble in the Aegean, but there won’t be an aircraft which will not be intercepted,” Kammenos told Antenna Television. A Greek court last week blocked the extradition of eight Turkish military officers Ankara accuses of involvement in a failed coup in July 2016. Turkey said relations between the two countries would be reviewed.
