A Crashing Train of Thought

Welp… Now I’m pissed off.

I personally believe this post is extremely mellow dramatic. I grew up with strict dress code policies my entire school life where we didn’t even have the choice to wear want we wanted. Everyone was constantly in unflattering uniforms. This should NOT be in the news. I would rock the shit out of that shame suit instead of getting so upset or embarrassed about it. It is just things, you guys. None of that will even matter once you’re out of high school.

Though the article focus on her sensitivity does not help her case and even misses the opportunity to inject common sense, I disagree with this not even worthy of mention because there are too many complaints about absurd dress codes at schools. If she had worn shorts (the same length) that day, would she be punished? It’s happened. In the end these little stories are a good reminder that schools can cross lines, instill their subjective morals into us, and must be kept in check.

Yes, clothes are “just things” and everyone should have a healthy sense of self-sustaining confidence and disconnection to materialism, those who made and enforce this dress code obviously do not understand this concept and chose to send completely different messages: “These things do damage and are worth hurting people over.” and “Your self-confidence and acceptance by others is controlled by what you wear.”

Extreme dress codes are a waste of time and energy which distract and disconnect more people than had these outfits been ignored in the first place.

We are better than this, but we do slip back into this mindset.

FLIR One, an Infrared Camera for the iPhone, Allows You to See the World (and Your Dog Relieving Itself) with Heat Vision

Wired just posted a review of the newly released FLIR One, an an infrared (IR) camera that fits onto your iPhone 5/5s and adds heat vision. With it, users can see in the dark Predator-style by detecting the heat radiation emitted by objects or pinpoint previously hidden areas of unusually high thermal energy. Like drones, thermographic imaging technology has made leaps and bounds in recent years, moving from purely military applications to civilian use. Equipped with dual cameras, the FLIR One takes both IR and visible light images, combining the two to form the final image. As Richard Baguley points out in Wired, the IR camera is much lower in resolution (80 x 60 pixels) than the visible-light one (640 x 480 pixels), so the dual camera approach produces an image that looks sharper than the pure IR image. Now, along with identifying camouflaged humans in the rainforest and finding overheated circuits, we can use thermal imaging for useful applications like filming our dog going to the bathroom. Who knew so much energy lay in so many unexpected places?

 Burning Man 2014 Moments by Trey Ratcliff

Website | Flickr | Google+ | Facebook | Prints

Embrace was a 72 ft wooden, cathedral-like sculpture of two human figures, “in celebration of all our relationships”. The site-specific artwork was created by the Pier Group for Burning Man 2014.
It was the largest project to date for the Pier Group, which gained acclaim for its previous Burning Man installations The Pier, Pier 2, and the Ichthyosaur Puppet Project. Crews began construction on Embrace in October 2013 at the Generator community art space in Reno, and in studios in Vancouver and Portland.
During this year’s festival the massive wooden sculpture was set aflame and Trey Ratcliff was on hand to capture the incredible moment. Below you can see what the interactive sculpture looked like before it was burned.

This will always break my heart not only because a girl this young I affected so greatly by racism but also because when I was younger I had these same awful sentiments against my own dark skin. This is why I personally feel representation is so important because honestly when you see and hear all around you bad thing about people who look like you, you have poor self esteem and have no big goals for yourself. This is why I get so angry when people bash Lupita Nyong’o because they don’t see how important it is for young dark skin girls to see that they are beautiful and they can accomplish so much.

This is so upsetting and not at all okay

For some reason Fox News allowed Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson to give his opinion on the problems with ISIS, unwittingly showing that Christian fundamentalists and Muslim fundamentalists are extremely similar.
