Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, 1967. Alfa Romeo is today celebrating the 50th birthday of the 33 Stradale which made its debut on August 31, 1967, on the eve of the Italian Formula 1 Grand Prix at Monza. Designed by Franco Scaglione, the 33 Stradale is the centrepiece of a special exhibition opening today at the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo in Arese, Milan, showcasing the marque’s illustrious racing heritage

Victor and Yuuri are ABSOLUTELY buying a little house in Hasetsu and living there once Victor retires (he can train just Yuuri in Japan, after all!). St. Petersburg is lovely, but Hasetsu is heaven on earth and Victor has so clearly started think of it as a home (the seagulls)?? The Katsukis are family even after just eight months, imagine what they’ll be like after a couple of years. 

The house is near the beach and Yuuri has a small garden in the little backyard, which he finds really soothing and calming. Victor’s Japanese has become excellent by now, and Yuuri is very proud of him. 

They have their poodle(s) of course, but they also have a cat that Yurio gifted them at one point, and Makkachin treats it like its his own puppy. 

They’re going to help revitalize the town. Victor is going to coach at the new and improved Ice Castle which will be so popular due to Victor’s coaching and due to the fact that it was the home rink of Japan’s now five time world champion and Olympic gold medalist Katsuki Yuuri, that they actually have to expand it. 

They add a second rink just for training, and the rink building is named after Yuuri of course, which he finds embarrassing (but he came to the opening, cut the ribbon, and performed a special exhibition for it anyway). 

Victor just coaches Yuuri while Yuuri is still skating competitively (though Yurio comes and stays for part of the summer and Victor helps him out then), but when Yuuri retires he takes on other students. 

Yuuri teaches children to skate in his free time, but coaching older skaters isn’t really his thing and he goes into sports psychology with a focus on helping figure skaters. He doesn’t want skaters to go through what he did. He wants to learn how to be able to be there for them. He and Victor’s careers go hand in hand, and he’s at the rink at least part of the day most days anyway because he loves skating (and seeing Victor) so much. He’s very close to all of Victor’s students. 

They both travel for ice shows for YEARS when they get the chance/are invited, because they love it. There are pro skaters still doing ice shows at fifty years old. That will be these two. And they never fail to make sure at least one of their programs is a duet. 

When Victor travels for coaching, Yuuri tends to go with him a) because he’s willing to be very hands on in his job as a sports psychologist so often he’ll already be going to help an athlete competing anyway, even if it’s not Victor’s student. b) because Victor’s students really like Yuuri and like having him there. c) sometimes Yuuri’s agreed to be on location to do some light coverage/make a few appearances for the Japanese broadcasters anyway, although he doesn’t do program/event commentating because he doesn’t feel comfortable with near that much talking d) they literally never get tired of traveling together. 

They are in permanent honeymoon phase, and everyone who has ever spent more than two seconds with them knows this.


Executive Order 9066 dated February 19, 1942, in which President Franklin D. Roosevelt Authorizes the Secretary of War to Prescribe Military Areas, 2/19/1942

File Unit: Executive Orders 9041 - 9070, 1/26/1942 - 2/24/1942Series: Executive Orders, 1862 - 2011Record Group 11: General Records of the United States Government, 1778 - 2006

Issued by President Franklin Roosevelt seventy-five years ago on February 19, 1942, this order authorized the evacuation of all persons deemed a threat to national security from the West Coast to relocation centers further inland. In the next 6 months, over 100,000 men, women, and children of Japanese ancestry–over 60,000 of them American citizens–were moved to assembly centers. They were then evacuated to and confined in isolated, fenced, and guarded relocation centers, known as internment camps.

The U.S. Government would eventually be compelled to compensate surviving internees for their treatment in 1988.

Among the roughly 1,400 species of land snails found in Cuba, those from the genus Polymita—that’s Latin for “many stripes”—are unique to the island nation. These tiny gastropods are quite aptly known as painted snails because of the variety of vibrant colors of their shells.

A dazzling array of painted snail specimens can be seen in the special exhibition ¡Cuba!, including Polymita picta, P. sulphurosa, P. versicolor, P. venusta, P. brochuri, and P. muscarum, all from the Museum’s collection.

New Exhibit Installed! - Reformation: Dialogue and Identity 

Last week we opened our new exhibit commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. We’ll be posting about some of the individual items on display, but for now here’s a peek into some of our cases. The exhibit will be up until December 15th, 2017, so if you’re in the area, please stop in. 

Rather than attempt a chronological history of the Reformation, we decided to focus the exhibit on the ways people engaged in dialogue through texts and images within and between faith communities. It includes some truly interesting stuff, if we do say so ourselves!

Favourite Exhibitions [YUZURU: 1/?]  Requiem of Heaven and Earth, 2016 NHK Special Exhibition (x)


Gruvia had a strong presence in both exhibitions of Mashima-sensei’s artwork. During Sensei’s Fairy Tail exhibition, you could purchase a Gruvia-only ticket on one of the days of attendance, and a Gruvia badge was also for sale as merchandise for the fans. Both exhibits had special couple postcards of Gruvia one could receive as a gift for attending, or for purchasing merchandise. Mashima-sensei even labeled the Gruvia postcard available during the Fairy Tail exhibition “Autumn of romantic love.” 

Plus, some of Gray and Juvia’s moments in Sensei’s current exhibition were considered important enough to be displayed in their respective panel collections. Considering how much is involved through history with Gray’s character especially, it’s pretty telling that some of the most signature moments include Juvia.  

And as if the above weren’t already enough, Mashima-sensei also took the time to personally add an additional new Gruvia drawing to the walls of his exhibits each time. 

Gruvia’s firm presence among Mashima-sensei’s lifetime of artwork doesn’t just show his own love for the pair he created, but his acknowledgement of the fans enjoyment of Gray and Juvia’s relationship, as well. “Gurejubi” is immensely loved by the Japanese fans, and there were tweets from those attending about their happiness that sensei drew Gray and Juvia’s characters together on the wall while they were there.


Accessing History: Unmasking the Process of Preservation

Come check out the preservation exhibit opening May 3, 2017 at 4:30pm!

The purpose of this exhibition is to unmask the preservation process and offer a glimpse into how we maintain our collections to ensure that they are available to the public for years to come. Over the course of history, the preservation process has evolved alongside our understanding of records and their role as documentary evidence. Today, preservation takes many factors into account, including proper storage, environmental conditions, and the physicality and materiality of records. We preserve these materials not only for their historical value, but also for their value as primary resources for researchers, including UWM students, staff, and faculty.

This exhibition displays items from four different departments of the library—Special Collections, Archives, Digital Collections, and the American Geographical Society Library—and focuses on the challenges faced by the Libraries in preserving often delicate or unusual materials.
Materials from all four departments participating in the exhibition will be on display at the opening for attendees to see up close. There will be a brief gallery talk followed by the opportunity to speak to members of each department and handle special materials!

Under the direction of Max Yela, this exhibition was developed and installed by Special Collections/Archives intern Elizabeth Kamper and Special Collections intern Kalani Adolpho, both graduate students in the UWM School of Information Studies.

What... magic... is this? It doesn't match to any known logic we seen/know, nor the brand... What could possibly be making it... and how? I haven't seen ANY tobacco plants, plus, I don't think they would be able to grow in Snowdin... haha, snow. But in the case OF magic, they don't seem to exhibit any special properties besides a normal cigerate. Except... the bones not turning yellow. I'm not sure at all how it works. Also, what could/would even light it? Do they carry lighters? And what brand?

This is where the weed comes from [???]

Just joking lol. I don’t really know. And yes, Sans carries a lighter with him.
