informative image

Our idea of ourselves includes no information whatsoever about the hypothalamus, of the way we breathe, of how our blood circulates, of how we manage to form a sentence, of how we manage to be conscious, of how you open and close your hand. The information contained in your image of yourself contains nothing about all that. And therefore, obviously, is an extremely inadequate image.

March 23, 2016 entry: A friend of mine pointed out to me that I had a few spots in my shot where the character’s teeth appeared over the space of one frame and then disappeared the frame after that. It caused a distracting “flashing” effect on my animation. It was a quick and easy fix that helped out my shot a lot! Whether your character is always showing teeth or rarely ever shows teeth, make sure to generally avoid teeth “flashing.” That goes for teeth disappearing or appearing for only one frame. Man, it’s hard to fit all this information onto one tiny image! #studiomomentsatdisney #cganimationtips #animation #cganimation #animator #disney #mouthshapes #drawing #learning #practice

NSF’s Science360 Photo of the Week

This is a close-up view of the beam created by a vortex laser.

Because the laser beam travels in a corkscrew pattern, encoding information into different vortex twists, it’s able to carry 10 times or more the amount of information than that of conventional lasers. The optics advancement could become a central component of next-generation computers designed to handle society’s growing demand for information sharing.

022 // Loose Images No.6:
“The Hand of Jeremiah” and Celia Roscoe.

Welp, I did not get as much ready as I had hoped to. I spent a lot of this week smashing my head against a mountain of old code from years ago that I meant to update and never did, or that I did not know needed updating until I actually dusted it off again and subsequently felt compelled to update it. Arduous stuff!

Celia is actually animated to climb the tree, and she does quite elegantly! But! She is not yet animated to sit down properly, and my myriad neuroses will not permit me to send a screencapture out with missing frames. No, no, no.

Therefore, in the interim, you get this: Celia goofin’ off in the branches (she’ll actually do more next time, I swear!) and a somewhat colourful expository moment about the tree in the graphic, below.

Enjoy! :y

This big tree is a member of the species Corymbia terminalis-III salite; a hardwood that likes salty, rocky soil and which has been growing on that spot since before the Erusa Skyfall disaster. The girl sitting in it is Celia Roscoe, who you know.
This tree is named “The Hand of Jeremiah.” Celia named it that.
Celia has only told her mother who ‘Jeremiah’ is and it’s a secret.

C. terminalis-3 salite trees absorb salts in the soil and minerals they grow through and inter it in their thick, scab-like bark. The trees regularly shed their bark to eliminate excess salt, and, normally, the wind and rain will carry the discarded salt-laden wood off before it crumbles and re-salinizes the soil.
'Jeremiah’ is in the shelter of the Matan Escarpment, though, and the bark does not travel very far before it decomposes, and that is why this particular tree has such a broad space around it for it to thrive in. Others like it can be found growing in oceanfront groves and scattered across salty alluvial plains.
The species of tree is now fairly rare on Luan-II, as non-seaside plants tend to die out as the salt in the soil is depleted– a task they were specifically bred and engineered to perform in biocycle-terraforming situations.

A thick pseudolignotuberous root crown can support several trunks and stems per plant, sending thick, woody runners out from an original trunk and growing thick, appendage-like roots that may eventually branch into new, connected trees. The result is a plant with a thick, central trunk and several heavy, insect-like 'legs’ splaying out in all directions, sprouting smaller trees of their own.
These legs are where the species gets its nickname: Roga’s “Walking” Corymbia.

Salite bark can be ground and used as a pretty-okay seasoning, but you really have to like salt. It tastes terrible on its own.

The pendant is attached to a silver-coloured chain and split ring, making a keychain. The keychain rests on a light tan surface against a white binder with gold-coloured clip rings.]

This is a fabulous submission from @hoboraptor in somewhat changed form because Tumblr ate her original post when I added it to the queue. (I hit “queue” after adding image descriptions and the post, which did not post at all, vanished from inbox, queue and draft. Of course this happens on a day of terrible hand pain!) Thankfully, I still had the link to the product page open in my browser, so I remade the post, but I apologise for doing so in a more abbreviated form!

This pretty epic find is a HN Glitter Quicksand Star Keychain, retailing on Amazon for the fabulously inexpensive price of $1.25 USD with $1.99 USD (within the US) shipping! The link offers five different different colour combinations, all at the same price. This would be pretty easy, too, to turn into an oversized necklace pendant…

Thanks so much, @hoboraptor!

Friendly reminder that even though the Christian God is often rendered male, men and women were both created in God’s image, informing us that God is entirely male and female and also more than a binary. Friendly reminder that Hebrew grammar/language explicitly feminizes the title of God on numerous occasions. Friendly reminder that metaphors used in the Old and New Testaments refer to God as a mother bear/hen/eagle, woman in labor, and mistress of the home.

Friendly reminder that welcoming the feminine aspect of God into your life or seeing your femininity as reflective as God or imagining God as a mother is 100% within your orthodox Christian rights.

Try it. It will feel uncomfortable at first. But if you lean into it, an amazing blossoming of self and internal healing can happen. This goes for boys and girls and everyone in between.

QMSR demo announcement!

I have two announcements regarding the demo for Queen Mary’s Script Retold! I’m getting close to finishing it. I can feel it in my bones. 

First, I am in need of 5-10 playtesters for the QMSR demo! The only criteria is you must be available from the 24th to the 26th or 27th to the 29th of this month! How it’ll go is I’ll have one group of testers play the game and then they’ll give me their critiques. Then I’ll implement everything and have another round of playtesting going with the fixed build and have everything ready to be released by the 31st. 

Please send me a message here or through email at maimiestoybox@gmail.com
Please also tell me when you’ll be available from the 24th to the 29th! I’ll decide if you’re round 1 or 2 depending.

Also, you must be able to contact me by email or skype. 

Second, I will be doing an art stream on the 30th for the demo’s promotional image! More information will be given when we’re closer to that date, but something good might come at the end of it. Here’s my twitch account

I’m so excited guys ;; The demo encompasses the whole first part of the game so I hope to give you guys a lot of juicy content to hold you until the game’s release

@gaysails replied to your post “@gaysails replied to your post “concept; black sails ends with…”

for your information in this mental image thomas has grown his hair out and thinks it’s really cute that he’s now the one with a ponytail while james is just fuzz

Hey guys !! People like to joke that the only thing you really “learn” in school is how to memorize. As it turns out, that’s not even the case for most of us. If you go around the room and ask a handful of people how to memorize things quickly, most of them will probably tell you repetition.

Below are 9 steps that will help you memorize things quickly and start recalling..

1. Take a long hard look. If things leap out at you visually and stick well, you’re probably the type of person who collects information visually. If you see it, you can understand it. Ways that you find taking in information easier include:

  • Information on pictures, charts, or diagrams is much easier to remember than the same information presented to you verbal.
  •  
  • You visualize things as you learn them, often looking into the distance as if you are “seeing” the information.
  • You create vivid images of information in your mind. When learning the Articles of the Constitution, you may envision yourself in the room with the Founding Fathers as they discussed them.
  • Your spatial skills are very strong: sizes, shapes, textures, angles, perspectives-these are all easy for you to grasp.
  • You’re able to “read” people by their body language, knowing what they’re really thinking, even as they say something else.
  • You’re very aware of your environment, and have a strong appreciation for aesthetics, art, and other visual media.

2. Sit in a peaceful environment. Go where there are no distractions, nothing that will visually catch your eye. Avoiding “shiny objects” will allow you to focus on what it is you need to memorize. That means no TV, open windows, or those cat clocks with the eyes that move back and forth.

3. Color code your information by type. For example, if you’re memorizing history notes, then color code them by dates or key people. George Washington is blue, Ben Franklin is orange, anything about the Revolution is red, King George is green, etc.

4. Go through each color-coded section, writing and rewriting each item down until you can successfully memorize it all. Writing each item down on a matching-color Post-It note will not only help cement this association in your mind, it will help with the next step too.

5. Place a Post-It or index card on a location you frequently visit, such as your locker or your bedroom door. Read it every time you pass by. Align your notes by color, vertically, and horizontally. by time.

6. Frequently write and rewrite the notes. When you go to your note board, look at an item, rewrite it on a fresh Post-It or card, and replace the existing one. If you are having particular difficulty with one of the existing notes, take the old note and put it somewhere else, where you will see it more often. Replace that one occasionally, too.

7. Find a partner to study with. Draw diagrams/graphs, write out explanations, and teach concepts to each other to help each of you better remember them.

8. Highlight the high points. Look for important of key words depending on what you have to memorize, highlight them, remember them, then try to memorize the rest. If reading online PDFs, make use of the highlighting function for key points. This helps your memory, as well as fast recovery of information when searching through the document again.

9. Move around. Pace around the room while studying and repeating the information to yourself. By walking around, you will use both your right and left brain and will memorize the material much easier.

I’d like to take a moment to appreciate that even though he can fake a passport like a master, Peter is just awful at doodling.

I mean, seriously. How bad does it have to be that Juno looks at a drawing of a kitty and goes “yes, this is clearly a coded message.”

(To be fair, he’s also seen Rita encode information in images. But at least hers were immediately recognizable as a Prince’s fine ass on a horse. So Juno’s used to that particular method and he still couldn’t recognize literally any of the pictures for what they were supposed to be.)
