Very simply illustrating that a girl with no money will date any guy as long as he has money. Pay off her bills, buy her dinner, lend her your credit card and she'll be your best friend for as long as the money still flows. If the guy's money run out or he decides not to be an atm she'll leave and find another sucker. Sad but true.

As weapons evolve in design and destructive power, what will be the final weapon? Will we even make it that far or will we all be blown to dust before we ever reach the end? Current weapons are capable of vaporizing the entire planet, but what about beyond Earth. Will we eventually develop science capable of destroying an entire solar system or even a galaxy? How can we ever live in peace under the fear that there is always going to be some entity out there that has his/her/its finger hovering over the button that could end everything in one flash. Could we possibly evolve to a point, in the distant future where we no longer need to fear anything, could we possibly believe in a day when we (or our decedents) could evolve to a state of being that transcends living as we know it. Shed our physical forms and experience life as something greater? We could be gods, would we fear destruction from another god? Or would we all be one combined entity in harmony with the rest of the universe.

Students Shopping for Textbooks

Aug 30, 2012

For parents with children starting a new term of college/university and the students themselves. Aren't those text books always so expensive? Most students just payed course fees in the thousands and now need to buy a few hundred dollars worth of books, even buying all used books will cost an arm and a leg.

There are two pieces of helpful advice that will hopefully make your textbook purchasing less painful:

1) Do not buy any of your text books until after the first class.
Wait until you have attended the first class because course outlines have a record of being out of date, by any amount of time, even up to years, and since the update the course required text could have changed and you don't need to get stuck with an out-of-date book. Also, any prepared professor will come with a copy of the correct textbook to show his/her class, although many different versions of a text may have nearly identical titles, the covers are typically unique and this will aid you in acquiring the appropriate text and save yourselves the headache of being lost in the text and having to go back and return a book and all that hassle.

If you've already bought your textbooks before the first class, do not open the wrapper, as long as you don't and you still have the receipt you will be able to return any textbooks if need be without hassle and buy the appropriate text before next class.

2) There's more than one place to buy your textbooks.
You have the option to shop around and compare prices on textbooks. The campus bookstores aren't the only place that sell your textbooks. There is also the online book store that I have come to understand offers better prices sometimes. Another option for buying your books is definitely off campus book stores, like; Coles, Chapters, used (from second, third... year students) or any number of online sources.

Consider making a list of all your required texts and go comparative shopping across your multiple options, this time spent could save you hundreds of dollars in textbooks.

Be the type of person that you want to meet.

Michael Kvium - Køkkenscene

Michael Kvium is a Danish visual artist who was born in 1955. Michael Kvium has had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including at the Gallery Faurschou, Beijing and at the Galleri Faurschou.

To make the analysis easier, I share the picture in two. In the right part of the image, you can see the stage itself, where there is a naked woman, with an apron. Her head is not proportional to her body when her head is small compared to her huge body. She is bent over a girl. The girl is a stereotypical 10-year-old girl who has a yellow T-shirt and a red dress. She has spiky pigtails and also she has a pig nose.
Along a purple curtain in left hanging, top, 4 gaping angels. They are small and are formed as babies with curls and feathered wings on his back. Below those are 3 almost jubilant demon-like figures.

The scene that takes place inside a kitchen is partially transparent, with half of the stage is obscured by the veil. The picture as a whole is fully manageable. It is believed this is a afternoon in the summer, the daughter has T-shirt. Furthermore a sunshine in from the right from a open window. The wind from the open window gives a slight breeze as window curtain flapping, and the entire curtain shape provides a diagonal movement of the upper right downward to the left and the shape is echoed in the mother's body shape and curtain form.

In the foreground of the picture you can see a kitchen that is green and the color identical with devils. In the background, there is depicted a white oven and a white refrigerator, color-wise equal with the angels. The water tap running, so I conclude see that the mother is starting to wash up. Based on these appliances, and a power meter which is in the background, one can conclude that it is in modern times. Around the subject is environment cropped on one side and the other side is the veil that covering our view of the rest of the small kitchen. This means that you will focus on the action and the makes the picture for a snapshot.

The left side of the image with the angels and devils are seen from the front view, and act right is seen slightly from left bird's eye view. We can not clearly determine the basis of the characters, But if you look at the refrigerator, behind and sink, right, works the scene from above. Therefore, you also get a full view of the girl's face as she looks up. Her gaze slides over towards the viewer, but also of the angels. It is very characteristic that you look up, if you strangulation. In the girl's case, she looks up, but also up to the angels at the curtain. The viewer's position is therefore on the basis of the edge is the large shield which is inclined to the right of action.

I suspect that the woman is the mother of the girl, even though they are physically profound contradictions. She is currently of strangling the child. The girl stretches her arms out to the sides and opens his mouth in hopes of a last bite air. While hanging angels and devils along the curtain and observe in their own manner. The angels are gaping with contempt for the event and hope that the mother stops.

Devils however, are curious to smile and playful attitudes. The action is realistic, but the people at the curtain is unrealistic, for the earth is not devils and angels. The mother's body shape is unrealistic and seems surreal. Her body is geometrically with straight arms and triangular breasts. The environment is also geometric, and on the right side of the image is everything, daughter, environment and operation, realistic except the mother who with her unreal body stands out.

The picture, design, works spontaneously. The mother could have sneaked up on her daughter as she chokes her from behind since she is covered by shadow. The mother's physical proportions do not fit with her daughter's physical form. Therefore, when in doubt that it is a mother and a daughter. But it is up to the viewer to think about it. Picture's action is anti-enlightenment. It defies Immanuel Kant's adage "Sapere Aude" - "You have to have the courage to use his reason." The mother does not use his reason for killing her child. Angels baby body shape and what to use angels in his painting is inspired by Baroque. In the Baroque period in Italy had painted angels in the churches that look like the angels who are in this picture. In that time, ideal that connected the earthly life of illusions and death and the dualistic belief gave contrasting between heaven and earth, the sky was like a wonderful place with tranquility. Therefore, the angels painted the picture and the girl looking up at the angels, to the hope that the mother can use his reason. The dark shadow that covers the mother alludes not only to the action, but it symbolizes also evil. Girl tøjfarver symbolizes summer and heat. The symbolic contrast between mother and daughter are great, like the physical contrast. It is typical Michael Kvium to exhibit man completely natural, and not, for example. cosmetic intervention or quite simply a bra. Her head also seems completely out of place compared to her big body. This little head symbolizes the place where one has his reason, his intellectuality and it is which, via learned norms draws its decisions / actions and that is exactly what she does not. The body is however great the picture and it requires a symbolic way of a great body and not a large head to kill her child. For most people with modern humanity would the mother appear as something ugly. Therefore painter Kvium veil, so you can pull it and miss it as you for example. doing in theater.

It is again typical Michael Kvium that he will express what that man will not normally see. Not only act as mother perpetrators, but also the body. The body most since the modern kropssyn abhor, little square, an ugly body. It works for us disgusting. Looking at action suit angels and devils well into the samples on their way to control what we shall see. The angels as opponent of the mother's action and the demons which calls for action. Due to the choice of angels and demons make the subject heavenly / earthly. Kvium choice of the number of angels and demons can perceive such that when there are 3 angels and a angel whose main sticking into the picture and 3 demons, it may symbolize that the good is the majority. In the majority if one divides the angels as good and demons as bad, and it makes mother did not kill her child. Varies from person to person form you are your own hypothesis action future. His message, I think, is that sometimes you want to kill her children, if the example. is annoying, but you would never do it. Therefore, the small head to show that at it rewarding time not using his reason, and when you do not have his guardian angel to guide one through the right solution. Therefore, only the angel, which is shown at least, there is the head. When the head symbolizes sense, and angels come with reason and love is the head of a well chosen symbol.
If you let the brain run a little as an observer, you will see the mother looking down and the girl look up even though their positions are reversed for their actions, at least the mother. So seen from their actions is mother to the ground and daughter, as an innocent object belongs in heaven.

Coca-Cola Machine Disguise

The Japanese ninja dress that turns into a Coca Cola machine in the blink of an eye.

If you like to blend in when it comes to fashion, then this is the skirt for you.

A Japanese designer has unveiled a garment that doubles as a disguise, unfolding to look like the front of a vending machine.

It may look decidedly silly, but Aya Tsukioka's idea has a serious aim.

Miss Tsukioka, 31, says she hopes it will help ease women's fear of crime and discourage would-be attackers.

With vending machines lined up on many of Japan's city streets, there are plenty of opportunities for camouflage.

Showing off the design yesterday, Miss Tsukioka lifted a flap on the skirt to expose a large sheet of cloth printed with the familiar bright red Coca-Cola logo.

She showed how a woman walking alone could hide behind it to outfox a potential attacker.

The experimental clothes designer has already sold 20 of the £400 hand-sewn vending machine skirts and is hoping to market the design worldwide.

She says the idea was inspired by a trick used by Japanese ninja assassins, who cloaked themselves-in black blankets so they couldn't be seen at night.

Spot the fashion: A Japanese man walks right by the model in the dress
