Dennis Hlynsky, a film and animation professor at the Rhode Island School of Design, creates videos at the intersection of art and science. Hlynsky transforms ordinary footage of birds and insects into ethereal illustrations by digitally tracing the paths they travel.
Hlynsky’s work is typically featured in galleries, where the video is projected on large screens with recorded sound. To see more videos from Hlynsky, please visit his Vimeo channel.
Boku no Hero Academia - Part One English: My Hero Academia Japanese:
People are not born equal, a realization that four-year-old Izuku Midoriya faced when bullied by his classmates who had unique special powers. Izuku was one of the rare cases where he was born with absolutely no unique powers. This did not stop Izuku from pursuing his dream, a dream of becoming a great hero like the legendary All Might. To become the great hero he hopelessly wants to become, he now will join the ranks of one of the highest rated “Hero Academies” in the country: U.A. High School. With the help of his idol All Might, will he be able to claim the ranks and become a true hero?

As a former student of biology and history of science, the topic of
women in science is one that is near to my heart. These three portraits
feature three 20th century women scientists who made seminal
contributions to their fields: Barbara McClintock in genetics, Grace
Hopper in computer science, and Chien-Shiung Wu in nuclear physics.
The idea of a pantheon isn’t limited only to figures in traditional mythologies. Famous figures in modern times, when present in our collective consciousness, can also form their own pantheons. With this project I explored the roles of prominent 20th century women scientists: the symbols associated with them and their work, the larger-than-life nature of their accomplishments, and their contributions to their respective fields.
[genetics] Barbara McClintock’s most famous accomplishment is the discovery of transposons, or jumping genes. She used phenotypic color variations in corn kernels to study transposable elements. She received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1983.
[computer science] Grace Hopper invented the first compiler for a programming language, helped develop COBOL (one of the first high-level programming languages), and popularized the term “debugging” after removing a moth from a computer. She was also a US Navy Rear Admiral and an avid teacher, among her many accomplishments.
[nuclear physics] Chien-Shiung Wu was an experimental physicist and one of the leading experts in her time on beta decay. She is best known for conducting the Wu experiment, the results of which contradicted the then-widely accepted law of conservation of parity. She was also a respected professor.

Day 5: Favorite Study Snack I looOOOoVe granola bars but especially these healthy brownie bars (they taste like real brownies actually) and I like fruit a lot (especially apples and mangos and strawberries and watermelon and little tangerines)
My other favorite thing is Odwalla juices and drinks; today I tried the peachy ginger juice flavor and it was really good lol
