          2017 Arkansas Times Academic All-Star Team   
Meet the best and brightest high school students in the state.

The class of 2017, our 23rd, is made up of athletes, coders, budding politicians and brain experts. There's rarely a B on the transcripts of these students — in not just this, their senior year, but in any year of their high school careers.

Back in 1995, we created the Academic All-Star Team to honor what we then called "the silent majority — the kids who go to school, do their homework (most of it, anyway), graduate and go on to be contributing members of society." Too often, we argued then, all Arkansans heard about young people was how poorly they were faring. Or, when students did get positive attention, it came for athletic achievement.

As you read profiles of this year's All-Stars, it should be abundantly clear that good things are happening in Arkansas schools and there are many academic achievers who deserve to be celebrated. You should get a good idea, as well, of how these stellar students are busy outside school, with extracurricular activities, volunteer work, mission activities and more.

They'll be honored this week at a ceremony at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with plaques and $250 cash awards.

Many college plans listed here are not set in stone, as students await information on scholarships and acceptances.

CAROLINE COPLIN-CHUDY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: Mount St. Mary Academy
Parents: (guardian) Dennis Chudy
College plans: Duke University

Caroline Coplin-Chudy has a 4.4 grade point average — high enough to rank second in her class at Mount St. Mary Academy — and lost her mother to leukemia during her sophomore year, something she told us came to be a source of inspiration and drive during her academic development. "It was a big adjustment. After my mom passed away, it was just my stepdad. It's a weird realization coming to the idea that both of your parents are gone, and it's just you. ... I still think of her every single day. She motivates me to do well in everything, because my whole life I wanted to make her proud." Caroline is president of Mount St. Mary's Investment Club and of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions). She's also been a regular volunteer for several years at the Little Rock Compassion Center, whose recovery branch provides meals and health resources to people suffering from addiction. Caroline said she found healing from her own grief in the friendships she forged there. As the recipient of a Questbridge scholarship, described by Caroline's guidance counselor and nominator Amy Perkins as a program where lower-income students qualify for tuition to schools with which they "match" via an early decision process, Caroline will attend Duke University on a full scholarship. "I'm going to study biology and psych, with a minor in Spanish. My plan is to work at the Duke Center for Addiction [Science and Technology] helping people with drug addictions overcome that sort of thing. It's something that I've had experience with, watching my family go through things like that."

AXEL NTAMATUNGIRO
Age: 17
Hometown: Pine Bluff
High School: Subiaco Academy
Parents: Sixte Ntamatungiro and Sylvana Niciteretse
College plans: Rice University, neuroscience

Axel Ntamatungiro grew up among books and maps dispersed throughout his home that "paint[ed] the walls with nuanced shades of knowledge." It shows. Not often can a high school senior explain, as Axel does, his love for studying the brain so easily. "Neuroscience is basically a neuron turning on and off," he said. "The fact that you have billions of these combinations that lead to consciousness, that's unbelievable." To continue learning about the mind, Axel is headed to Rice University on a full ride as a QuestBridge scholar. Maybe medical school or graduate school after that. Axel said his parents taught him a "humble intellectualism" that helped him understand "the irrationality of life." They always told him: "Work hard, but you need to realize you don't always get what you deserve." And life has been, at times, irrational and difficult for his family. Axel was the only member of his family born in the United States — in Little Rock in 1999. The rest migrated from Burundi in the early 1990s. They stayed here as the Rwandan genocide inflicted incredible damage in the area. That past was never hidden from Axel. "Instead of avoiding my questions, my parents level-headedly answered [them], telling me about Belgian colonialism, Hutu-Tutsi tension and the systematic poverty afflicting Burundi," he said. Maybe that is why Axel has never been afraid to ask big questions. He said it also helped to have a diverse group of friends who taught him new things. At his cafeteria table for lunch are kids from all over: Nigeria, Fort Smith, Japan, Bentonville and Russia. Everyone's small stories add to a global perspective, something bigger from something small, kind of like those neurons.

JADE DESPAIN
Age: 18
Hometown: Springdale
High School: Haas Hall Academy (Fayetteville)
Parents: Brenan and Tiffany DeSpain
College plans: U.S. Naval Academy, nuclear engineering

For Jade DeSpain, the question, "Where's your hometown?" isn't necessarily as straightforward as it seems. The National Merit semifinalist, swimming star and Quiz Bowler spent much of her childhood in Beijing, where her parents — both fluent in Mandarin — taught her Chinese concurrently with English (and where, she notes, she acquired an "incredible prowess with chopsticks.") "We've moved around so much that I don't really have a 'hometown,' but Springdale is the closest I've ever gotten," she said. She's made her impact there, too, tutoring students free of charge through her volunteer work with the M&N Augustine Foundation and putting in time at the Arkansas Council for the Blind and the Springdale Animal Shelter. Jade is ranked second in her class, and her high school transcript is full of aced courses in trigonometry, physics and calculus. She's also the co-founder of Haas Hall Academy's coding club, so a career in nuclear energy development — Jade's field of choice — isn't just an aspiration; it's the plan. "I have a deep appreciation for nature," she told us, citing Devil's Den State Park as a spot to which she feels closely connected, and stressing the importance of preserving natural spaces and developing more long-term options for sustainable energy. On Christmas Day 2016, Jade checked her email to find that she'd attained something she'd wanted as early as age 12: acceptance to the U.S. Naval Academy. There, she'll major in nuclear engineering and complete her five mandatory post-Academy years in the Navy, after which she hopes to acquire a Ph.D. in the field.

AVERY ELLIOTT
Age: 18
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and Melissa Elliott
College plans: University of Arkansas, medicine

Though many of our All-Stars seem destined from birth for academic greatness, there is the occasional inspiring All-Star who has had to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. One of those is Cabot High School's Avery Elliott, who was born with nystagmus, a condition that causes involuntary eye movements that can make it hard for sufferers to concentrate and learn. Though it's hard to imagine it now, when she was in elementary school Avery found herself falling further and further behind her classmates in reading because of her condition. "That was difficult," she said. "I was behind schedule until about third or fourth grade. I would have to go home and really work with my parents to keep up with the rest of the class." Even though she struggled early on, Avery said that, in a way, the nystagmus contributed to her success and gave her a direction to follow. "I had to learn to really study even outside of school," she said. "I learned some very good study habits. But I think it also really affected where I wanted to go as far as my career. ... I really learned that a medical team can not only dispense medicine, but can really affect someone's life." A National Merit finalist who has volunteered extensively with Special Olympics and already completed 43 hours of college-level coursework, Avery has been awarded the University of Arkansas Fellowship. She plans to study medicine at UAMS after completing her undergrad degree, then practice in Arkansas. That goal has always pushed her to succeed academically. "I wanted to go into the medical field from an early age," she said, "so I knew starting out in high school that I needed to make very good grades in order to get where I needed to. I had to really learn the material, rather than just trying to ace a test."

JARED GILLIAM
Age: 17
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and LeAnne Gilliam
College plans: University of Arkansas, engineering

When most young people say they want to change the world, it's easy to believe that's just pie-in-the-sky thinking by someone who hasn't yet been through the Academy of Hard Knocks. When Jared Gilliam says he wants to change the world, however, there's a good chance he might actually pull it off. Jared even has a plan: He'll change the world through engineering. A National Merit finalist and AP scholar with a GPA of 4.18 and a perfect score of 36 on the ACT, Jared is well placed to do just that. A musician who plays percussion with the Cabot High Marching Band, Jared said his favorite subject in school is math. "I think I'm mostly interested in engineering because I've always been sort of a problem-solver," he said. "I've enjoyed math and science, working through things and finding solutions to everyday problems. This year, I've been in robotics, so we've spent time working on a robot to perform various tasks. I've enjoyed that a lot. I think engineering is where my ability would best be used." He'll attend the University of Arkansas, which has offered him the Honors College Fellowship. He said the drive to excel academically has always been a part of his life. "I've grown up being encouraged to do well, and I guess I have my parents to thank for that and all my teachers," he said. "I think knowing that I have the ability to do all of this, I feel compelled to do what I can to make a difference. I think life would be pretty boring if I didn't go out there and do all the things I do. I don't think I could settle for not being successful."

BENJAMIN KEATING
Age: 18
Hometown: Fort Smith
High School: Southside High School
Parents: Drs. Bill and Janice Keating
College plans: Undecided

If you were looking for a ringing endorsement of Ben Keating's character, you'd need to look no further than Amy Slater, the guidance counselor who nominated him for our Academic All-Stars roster and who said of Ben, "He is all the things I hope my son turns out to be. ... He really thinks about things, and he practices the trumpet and piano for hours a day. It's crazy, his dedication." Ben probably had something to prove here; he admits to some skepticism on the part of his mother when he announced he'd be pursuing a career in music. He's certainly proved his mettle; Ben is band president at Southside, was a principal trumpet for the 2017 National Youth Honor Orchestra, first chair for Southside's Wind Symphony and for the All-State Jazz Band and was ranked in the top-tier bands for All-State Band and All-State Orchestra each year from 2014-16. The accolades go on and on: Ben has received a Young Artist Award from the International Trumpet Guild, a Gold Medal from the National Piano Guild and superior ratings from the National Federation of Music Clubs competitions for over a decade. He plays for the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra and as a volunteer musician for the Fort Smith Community Band. Ben is still deciding where to attend college, but wherever he goes, he hopes to continue playing with an orchestra. Eventually, he wants to teach at the university level. "Ultimately," he wrote, "I want to use my passion to unite people of all different races, backgrounds and cultures. In today's society that is politically and culturally divided, it is more important than ever to share the universal language of music."

KATHERINE HAHN
Age: 17
Hometown: Hindsville
High School: Huntsville High School
Parents: Shannon Hahn
College plans: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, biochemical engineering

Katherine Hahn is ranked first in her class at Huntsville High School, which she attends because her hometown of Hindsville is too small to support its own school system. The population of Hindsville is "about 75 people," she told us. At Huntsville High, Katherine plays bass drum in the marching band and marimba/xylophone in the concert band and runs with the Huntsville cross-country team. Her real passion, though, is science. "I think I've always wanted to go to a college that was science-based and research-based," she told us. Her high school principal, Roxanne Enix, noted her own surprise when Katherine announced that she'd take 10 credits her senior year, instead of the recommended eight. "I thought she had lost her mind," Enix stated. Those credits, over half of which are in AP classes, are what Katherine hopes have prepared her for the rigorous workload at MIT. Aiming for a career in pharmaceutical development, Katherine plans to study biochemical engineering, something she said resonated personally with her as a result of her mother's struggle with skin cancer. "Biology helps me understand why medicine does the things it does," Katherine told us. "Whenever I first started out, I wanted to do environmental stuff," she said, but turned her attention to drug delivery systems after observing so many friends and loved ones battling cancer. "I want to help stop people from being scared of losing people," she explained. Katherine, a native of Tahlequah, Okla., who moved to Arkansas around fifth grade, has served on the Madison County Health Coalition as Youth Leader and was named Student of the Year in 2017 by the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce and Huntsville High School.

GEORGIANA BURNSIDE
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Little Rock Christian Academy
Parents: Bob and Ann Burnside
College plans: Stanford University, biology and public policy

When this reporter mentioned to friends at UAMS that she'd just spoken to an amazingly poised, optimistic and intelligent young woman with a spinal cord injury, they said in unison, "You mean Georgiana Burnside." Her reputation as a teenager who at 16 was paralyzed from the waist down in a snow skiing accident but who considers the event a "blessing" no doubt goes further than UAMS, all the way to Denver's Craig Hospital, where she spent "the most memorable two months in my life," she said, and where she returns to continue her rehabilitation. What is a spinal cord injury? She answers that it is a) a life changed in a split second, b) finding out that a bad attitude is the true disability, c) a time to show off wheelchair tricks, and d) spontaneous moments of unfortunate incontinence. In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Georgiana writes, "my physical brokenness has developed wholeness in my heart about the capacity life holds for individuals regardless of their disabilities." In a phone interview, Georgiana, once a figure skater, talked about her work with Easter Seals, fundraisers for Craig Hospital, and giving talks and testimony about her faith. Georgiana has regained the ability to walk with hiking sticks and leg braces, thanks to the strength in her quads. And, thanks to support from the High Fives Foundation in Truckee, Calif., which sponsors athletes with injuries and which has paid for some of her rehabilitation, Georgiana returned to the slopes over spring break, skiing upright with the aid of long forearm equipment. At Stanford, she'll study to be a doctor, with a goal to return to Craig Hospital as a physician who'll treat other injured youths who, though they may have, like Georgiana, at first believed their life was over, will learn they have "a unique role ... enabling the advancement of society."

MITCHELL HARVEY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: North Little Rock High School
Parents: David and Susan Harvey
College plans: Likely Mississippi State University, chemical engineering

Mitchell Harvey is a big fan of the periodic table. "The elements are amazing little things," he wrote in his Academic All-Star essay. "They make up everything, yet we hardly see them in their pure form in everyday life." Mitchell decided they needed more exposure, so he started collecting examples of the elements and taking them to school for his peers and teachers to see. He extracted helium from an abandoned tank on the side of the road. He found zinc in wheel weights, grew crystals of copper with electrolysis and made bromine, which he describes as "a blood-red liquid that fumes profusely," from a "crude" homemade distillation setup and pool chemicals. Though you can buy sodium readily, Mitchell made his by melting drain cleaner (sodium hydroxide) with a blowtorch and then passing a current through it, separating the mixture into sodium metal, oxygen and water. His parents were OK with the procedure, he says, because he wore a Tyvek suit, three pairs of gloves, safety goggles and a face shield. While on a college visit in California last summer, Mitchell toured Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and was impressed by the large periodic table display exhibit there. So he decided to build one for North Little Rock High. He got money from the school's alumni group, the Wildcat Foundation, to pay for the supplies necessary to construct the 9-foot-by-6-foot display. He hopes to have it completed in the next two weeks and fill it with examples of elements he has collected, though he may need additional funding to pay for other elements. No. 1 in a class of 687, Mitchell scored a perfect 36 on the ACT. He's also an Eagle Scout, and led a project to plant 800 native hardwood seedlings at Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park. After college, Mitchell said, he might start his own waste remediation business. "The business model I would be going for would be taking some byproduct that's hazardous and turning it into something useful."

CARSON MOLDER
Age: 18
Hometown: Mabelvale
High school: Bryant High SCHOOL
Parents: Kevin and Ruby Molder
College plans: University of Arkansas

Not everybody plays the mellophone and likes to draw up better interstate exchanges, but Carson Molder does both. The University of Arkansas Honors College-bound student, No. 1 in his class, likes to create three-dimensional schemes in his head, and has been creating road designs since he was young. But as a musician who plays the French horn in his school's orchestra and the mellophone in the Legacy of Bryant marching band, and who has won a band scholarship in addition to his Honors College reward to the UA, he said that one day he may be an audio engineer. "I'm going to put things together and see what sticks," he said of his future. Meanwhile, Carson said the internet has been his Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, taking him to new places that he otherwise could not get to. "I can count on my hands the number of times I have set foot outside Arkansas," Carson wrote in an essay for the Arkansas Times. But with the internet, "I can gaze into the redwood forests of California and the skyscrapers of New York City without leaving my desk." Without the internet, he said in a phone interview, "I would not be at the top of my class." Carson added, "It's not going to replace going out and visiting these things, but if you're a kid and don't have the money to go out, you can visit Yellowstone." Carson, who describes himself as "really ambitious," is looking forward to studying with Dr. Alan Mantooth, the director of the UA National Center for Reliable Electric Power Transmission. The UA, he said, "will provide me the tools" he'll need to succeed in graduate school, which he hopes will be Stanford University.

OLIVIA LANGER
Age: 18
Hometown: Jonesboro
High school: Brookland High School
Parents: Kelly Webb and Jonathan Langer
College plans: University of California, Santa Barbara, chemistry

You might think that a student who is No. 1 in her class and a National Merit finalist with nary a B on her high school transcript might not consider one of her greatest achievements her selection as her high school's drum major three years in a row. But here's the thing: Schoolwork comes easy to Olivia Langer. "I never had to work hard," she told us. In fact, her style of learning is "conversation-based," she said; she enjoys "debate without argument." But music was different: "I struggled at points, and had to put in extra work to be good." Her selection as drum major was "something I know I've worked for," she said, and she has enjoyed the responsibilities that come with it. "I like to take care of people. The band calls me band mom," she added. Beside numerous academic awards, Olivia also earned a 2017 state Horatio Alger scholarship for students who have overcome great obstacles. Hers, Olivia said, was financial: She's always had a place to stay and food to eat, but she hasn't been able to afford academic programs. "Honestly, I wasn't able to visit any of the colleges I applied to," she said. So she will see the UC Santa Barbara campus for the first time when she arrives this fall. She's considering a double major in chemistry and anthropology; she's interested in the evolutionary side of anthropology, and plans to seek graduate and post-graduate degrees.

REBECCA PARHAM
Age: 18
Hometown: Alma
High School: Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts
Parents: Eileen and Rick Parham
College plans: University of Arkansas or Hendrix College

On a visit to Hanamaki, Japan, with her school, Rebecca Parham noticed that once a month all the citizens would clean the front of their homes and shops. Folks would give each other gifts, too. "It was clear people tended to think for the whole," she said. "I thought that was really nice." An avid chemist, Rebecca did not just improve her Japanese on the trip, she brought those lessons of helping the community back to Arkansas. Her work has been at the intersection of heady science and community impact. In her robotics club, she noticed that girls were less likely to participate. "I decided that was not OK," she said. So, she designed a day with LEGO kits to encourage women to pursue STEM education. That desire to make an impact goes beyond school, too. For her senior project, Rebecca designed a test for homebuyers to see if meth had been cooked on their property (yes, meth). Her parents, on hearing of this project choice, asked her to "please explain a little bit further ... ." Here's the gist: The method of meth production in rural areas has shifted to something called the Birch reduction; older testing kits would no longer work. But Rebecca thought she could produce one that could. She designed a flame test. It finds lithium compounds left behind. The process of invention was "definitely frustrating," Rebecca said, but you "learn things you never thought of before." Rebecca did not plan to spend senior year in her dorm late at night "searching online" how to identify meth production, but she has a driving curiosity toward science and how it "connects to the world." She hopes to work in renewable energy — to be part of the global community, from Japan to Arkansas — making the world a nice place in which to live.

GRANT ROBINSON
Age: 18
Hometown: Searcy
High school: Searcy High School
Parents: Eric and Lisa Robinson College plans: University of Arkansas

Grant Robinson's father is a cardiologist, and Grant long figured he would follow in his dad's footsteps. But now he's not so sure. Last summer, he was selected, among thousands of applicants from around the world, to participate in a Stanford University summer engineering program. He got to experience a taste of college life, to take advantage of Stanford's decked-out labs and to tour the area to see results of civil engineering. The most memorable part of the program? Grant's small group built a Rube Goldberg machine — a complicated gadget that performs a simple task in a convoluted way — that, by Grant's estimation, was "the most complex and aesthetically pleasing" in the program. It included an electromagnet the group handmade and chemical reactions triggered by the machine. Grant's academic achievements are the byproduct of a natural curiosity. He said he spends what little free time he has exploring YouTube, trying to figure out the way the world works. Another influence: His father, who pulled himself out of poverty to become a doctor, has always instilled in him the importance of hard work. The message clearly stuck. Grant is second in his class of 263, with a 4.27 GPA. He scored a 35 on the ACT. He's a Presidential Scholar. His classmates voted him most likely to receive the Nobel Prize. He also participated in Project Unify (now known as Unified Champion Schools), an effort by the Special Olympics to get young people with and without special needs to come together for activities. Grant helped plan a basketball tournament as part of the project. In the fall, he'll be rooting on the Razorbacks at the University of Arkansas.  

JOHN SNYDER
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Little Rock Christian Academy
Parents: Jill and Steve Snyder
College plans: Cornell University, industrial and labor relations

Whatever you were doing by your senior year in high school, chances are you probably hadn't already authored a book, much less a book on the complicated intersection of taxation and politics. John Snyder has, though. His book, "The Politics of Fiscal Policy," explores the political aspects of economics, including the pros and cons of various governmental tax schemes and their effect on government spending. It's for sale on Amazon right now. "It's pretty concise," John said, "but I wanted a way to express all my ideas in economic terms. That was a great way to do that." A history buff who serves as vice president of his class, John has a stunning 4.49 GPA and is ranked first in his class of 129. Though he wanted to be a lawyer when he was younger, his plan now is to go into investment banking. "Ultimately I want to have my own hedge fund — this thing called an activist hedge fund — and eventually I want to be actively involved in politics, whether that's in the midst of my business career or after ... . I'd love to run for public office one day." At Cornell University, John will be studying industrial and labor relations, a field that marries his love of multiple subjects. "Basically it ties in business, law, economics and history all into sort of one degree," he said. "You can do limitless things [with the degree]. Some people go into law school, some go into banking, some go to politics. That's why I chose that degree." John said his philosophy is that we have only a limited amount of time on earth, and so we should try to make the most of our lives. "I think there are a lot of things I can do to change the way things currently are in society, whether it's related to business or in academia or public policy," he said. "If I don't play a role in that and I'm not striving to do my best, I would feel like I'm wasting my potential."

PRESTON STONE
Age: 18
Hometown: Benton
High school: Benton High School
Parents: Haley Hicks and Brec Stone
College plans: University of Arkansas, pre-med

Benton High School's Big Man on Campus — No. 1 in his class, captain of the football team, an AP Scholar, straight As — can add to his resume the fact that he helped build his home. Preston, his two brothers and his mother bounced around a bit after her divorce, from Texas to Arkansas, living with grandparents and friends, Preston said. Then the family was selected by Habitat for Humanity, and he and his brothers pitched in to build their house. "It was the first place I could truly call home and it allowed me the stability I needed to grow into the kind of student I am today," he wrote in his essay for the Arkansas Times. Preston, who also helped build a school outreach group called SERVE to help new or struggling students, also credits sports for giving him purpose. He recently volunteered to trade in the pigskin for a basketball, joining a team that played boys at the Alexander Juvenile Detention Center. "It was an awesome experience," Preston said in a phone interview. "We were a little bit nervous at first" at the detention center, he said, but the team enjoyed the game — even though they lost to the Alexander team, formed to reward inmates with good behavior. "They practice every day," Preston said. Preston has received a $70,000 Honors College scholarship at Fayetteville. He won't be playing football with the Razorbacks. Instead he is thinking of following a pre-med track that will lead him to sports medicine. He plans to go Greek, as well.

KARINA BAO
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Central High School
Parents: Amy Yu and Shawn Bao
College plans: undecided

Karina Bao embraces complexity. The Central High School valedictorian (in a class of 636) is a member of the school's back-to-back state champion Ethics Bowl Team, for which she said she spent hours "researching, discussing and sometimes even arguing" case studies. Unlike debate, she said Ethics Bowl is "really about the back-and-forth and considering different caveats and nuances and considerations" in issues ranging from local food to gender identity. As president of the school's Brain Club, she leads discussions on brain diseases, disorders and anatomy. It's a role for which she's more than qualified: She placed first in the U.S. Brain Bee, a youth neuroscience competition in which contestants answer questions about anatomy and make diagnoses based on patient actors. Placing No. 1 in the U.S. competition landed Karina a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark, to the International Brain Bee, which happened to coincide with a Federation of International Neuroscientists conference, where Karina got to talk to scientists from all over the world about their groundbreaking research. She placed fifth in the international competition. A perennial outstanding delegate winner at Model United Nations competitions, Karina said Model U.N. has helped her to "not be scared of the complexity and interconnectedness of pressing issues we face today." In her spare time, Karina volunteers on the oncology wing of Baptist Hospital. "You don't get to do much," she said. "But at least we get to talk to people and help them with whatever they need and be there to listen." In her Academic All-Stars essay, Karina echoed the same drive for understanding: "The stories other people share with me become not my own when I retell them, but a part of humanity's collective spirit to understand each other. We grow from hours of listening and crying, to empathize, to have the strength and openness to pop each successive layer of the protective bubble that keeps us from seeing the very world in which we reside."

BRYCE COHEA
Age: 19
Hometown: Greenwood
High school: Greenwood High School
Parents: Mike and Robin Cohea
College plans: University of Tulsa or Vanderbilt university, biology

Though he grew up landlocked, far from the deep blue sea, Greenwood High School standout Bryce Cohea knew from an early age that he wanted to be a marine biologist. To reach that goal, Bryce had to start early. "In the ninth grade," he wrote in his Academic All-Stars essay, "I began planning out all my classes for the next four years. I wanted to graduate top of my class, and in order to do that I would need to take every advanced placement class and get an A in every class." That's exactly what he did, too, making nothing less than a perfect grade in every class for his entire high school career. With a 4.25 GPA and a rank of No. 1 in his class of 275, Bryce has volunteered extensively with the Salvation Army and collected shoes for the homeless; he helps unload trucks and stock shelves at the food bank at his church. A National Merit semifinalist, he also has the distinction of having scored the first perfect ACT score of 36 in Greenwood High School history. "I've honestly been a good test-taker," he said. "The first time I took it, I got a 34. After that, I got the test back and I worked on whatever I missed. After a few more tries, I got a 36." Bryce was still deciding on which university to attend when we spoke to him, but he definitely plans to study science. The subject has always interested him, he said. "I'm planning on majoring in biology and then specializing after that," he said.

IMANI GOSSERAND
Age: 16
Hometown: Rogers
HIGH SCHOOL: ROGERS HIGH SCHOOL
Parents: James and Hyesun Gosserand

College plans: University of Southern California, Harvey Mudd College or Columbia University, computer science or environmental science

Imani Gosserand has a journal in which she organizes the many moving parts of her life — competitive gymnastics, AP classes, computer science, Young Democrats, volunteering — into lists. Personal stuff is in there, too: bucket lists, remembrances. The journal combines the creative and the organized; it is problem-solving with an artful flare, which is how Imani operates. "I really like being able to create something of my own," she said of computer science. At a camp at Stanford University, in California, her team won the competition to program a car. Imani, not surprisingly, is good at math: She learned multiplication at age 4 and went on to skip two grades. Imani thinks schoolwork is fun. "We had a huge packet of homework problems we had to do over one of our breaks," she said. "And no one else was excited about it except for me. I was like 'Oh, I'm so excited to do all these problems!' " She brings that enthusiasm for problem-solving to bigger issues, as well. "I feel like there are so many opportunities for me because our world relies on technology, so I think I could go into any field," she said. She's excited to explore and see where she can help. "I want to meet people from around the world and hear different perspectives."

C.J. Fowler has long been around Democratic politics. His stepfather is former Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel. But C.J. said he decided to become more politically involved himself after he came out as gay. "The situation that I'm in is not great," he said. "People are not always accepting. But it's on me if I want to try to change that and make it better for the people who come after me. I have to make sure that my community and all marginalized communities have a seat at the table, because far too often a bunch of old gray white guys are making policies that hurt everyone else." The student body president of Central High, C.J. said he's tried to move the student council, a glorified dance committee, toward advocacy and activism for students throughout the district, whose future is being decided by those "people sitting in dark rooms." He said students too often get left out of the conversation about the district "because we're too young to have opinions. But we're not; we're living it every day." C.J. has been a fixture at Little Rock School District public comment periods. Though he can't point to any policy victories, he said at least LRSD Superintendent Mike Poore knows who he is and that he disagrees with him. C.J., who is also the executive director of Young Democrats of Arkansas, sees the backlash against President Trump as encouraging. "We're realizing that, if we're going to go all in for progressive values, we need to go all in." Rather than join the chorus of progressives in the Northeast after he finishes at Yale, C.J. says he wants to come back to Arkansas and possibly continue in politics. He admires state Sen. Joyce Elliott (D-Little Rock) and says he hopes if he ever holds office that he can follow her example.

"Growing up, I would always argue with everybody," Sophie Price said. Sometimes it was just to play devil's advocate, but mostly, it was because Sophie wants to find the capital-t Truth. Some of this digging for truth is class: seven AP course just this year and 12 during her time in high school. But, some of it is also talking with people, discussing issues. "The best way to improve your argument is to hear the counters, to hear the other side," Sophie said, and often she is willing to be convinced. She wants to do the right thing; she believes in justice. Which is why after college at Vanderbilt on a full scholarship, she wants to field arguments as a judge. "My whole life I've followed this ideal that you have to do what's right," Sophie said. "I want to be a judge so I can kind of decide that." Vanderbilt was the only school to which Sophie applied. She knew it was the right one for her. She arrived in Nashville on a rainy day in January, but through the gloom, she knew. "Something about the beautiful campus and the intelligent people and these varying perspectives just sold me immediately," she said. In a few months she was back at Vanderbilt for a camp where she studied law, and it cemented the deal. "There was something so exhilarating about being able to have this case and have the facts and kind of create your own narrative and really advocate for someone that drew me in," she said. Watch out, because "everything I do, I want to give it a 120 percent," Sophie said.

College plans: University of Arkansas Honors College, chemical engineering

Fayetteville High School’s top student, with a perfect ACT score of 36, a 4.2 gradepoint average and the co-author of a paper on fractal self-assembly, is not just a bookworm. She’s a leader, her counselor Cindy Alley says, who shows “grit, motivation to succeed and a desire to help others.” She is also, Alley says, “a pure joy to be around.” In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Meagan talked about how she came to understand “ternary counters,” a base-3 method of counting in which only the digits 0, 1 and 2 are used. (Binary counters of 0 and 1 make up our computer’s “thinking,” as people with 10 fingers, we use base 10 to count.) Meagan, trying to make a “self-assembling ternary counter,” said she banged her head against “endless walls” for weeks. Then just after 1 a.m., she woke up with the answer. It’s a wise child who gives credit where credit is due: “I understood,” she wrote, “my mother’s advice about taking a break whenever I was upset.” Meagan’s paper on fractal self-assembly was published in the 22nd International Conference on DNBA Computing and Molecular Programing. She no longer lets frustration prevent her from solving a problem; sometimes, she’ll just sleep on it. Meagan told the Times she plans to attend a small conference this summer and then take some needed down time. She plans to use her degree from Fayetteville to pursue biomedical research.
          FRACTALES   



Un fractal es un objeto geométrico cuya estructura básica se repite a diferentes escalas. [1] El término fue propuesto por el matemático Benoît Mandelbrot en 1975 y deriva del Latín fractus, que significa quebrado o fracturado. Los fractales pueden ser generados por un proceso recursivo o iterativo, capaz de producir estructuras auto-similares a cualquier escala de observación. Los fractales son estructuras geométricas irregulares y de detalle infinito. Muchas estructuras naturales son de tipo fractal.
Categorías
Los fractales pueden ser divididos en tres amplias categorías, y posiblemente de carácter recursivo.
En resumen, una técnica análoga a la que los biólogos aplican al concepto de vida. En efecto, los fractales, como los seres vivos, satisfacen la mayor parte de las propiedades de una lista, pero algunos de ellos -fractales o seres vivos- carecen de alguna de ellas y, sin embargo, entran en la categoría correspondiente.




Definición esquemática
Nombre o adjetivo que subraya ciertas repeticiones perceptibles e inacabables, tales como :
Repeticiones crecientes, decrecientes o iguales de entidades
Repeticiones multiplicativas de entidades
Repeticiones cíclicas de entidades
Repeticiones no simétricas de entidades

Ejemplo: primera entidad: resultado

Aplicaciones
Técnicas de fractales han sido utilizadas en la compresión de datos, así como en una variedad de disciplinas científicas.
Existen pruebas para la compresión de imágenes utilizando la geometría fractal junto con el teorema del collage, basándose en encontrar las transformaciones lineales que hacen que al aplicarlas reiteradas veces obtengamos la imagen procesada en cuestión. Lamentablemente, aún siguen siendo de tiempo asimétrico, es decir, se tarda aun mucho en encontrar las transformaciones que definen la imagen. No obstante, una vez encontradas, la decodificación es muy rápida, solo hay que iterar el sistema. La compresión aunque dependa de muchos factores suele ser equiparable a la compresión JPEG, con lo cual el factor tiempo resulta determinante para decantarse por una u otra compresión.

CONCLUCION :

La fractabilidad sirve para definir de una manera abstracta los conceptos de ingenieria y matematicos para llegar a un resultado o solucion no encontrada.

          Effects of ambient temperature on electrical tree in epoxy resin under repetitive pulse voltage   
Chosen as an important insulation material in high voltage direct current (HVDC) cable terminal, epoxy resin bears the harsh environment of high temperature and changing pulse power. This paper reports on investigations into the effect of high temperature on characteristics of electrical tree growth. Samples made of epoxy resin and equipped with a needle-plate geometry electrode system were stressed with pulse voltage whose amplitude was 12, 14 and 16 kV and frequency was 200, 300 and 400 Hz. The ambient temperature was set to 60, 90 and 120 °C. Four types of typical tree growth process were partitioned to better describe the different growth characteristics. Typical morphology, tree length, fractal dimension, accumulated damage and expansion coefficient were employed to characterize the electrical tree. The initiation and breakdown characteristics were also analyzed. The results indicate that temperature, pulse frequency and pulse amplitude affect electrical tree growth. Higher temperature would lead to more complex tree morphology and promote the growth rate of electrical tree. When reaching the glass transition temperature, which is 93 °C in this paper, the change of internal state of epoxy resin would cause some special characteristics of tree growth. In addition, inception probability increased with temperature rising, whereas the time to breakdown decreased. Meanwhile, obtained results show that pulse frequency and pulse amplitude also play an important role in promoting electrical tree growth processes, including initiation, propagation and breakdown stages.
          Effects of mechanical stress on treeing growth characteristics in HTV silicone rubber   
Tensile and compressive stress, produced by the spring clamp device and the banding force after the expansion of silicone rubber stress cone, can affect the electrical properties of silicone rubber in the cable accessories. Electrical tree, one of the main electrical aging phenomena, is supposed to be related to the mechanical stress. In this paper, the treeing growth characteristics considering the tensile and compressive stress were investigated by the pin-plane electrode system respectively. The tensile rate of silicone rubber ranged from 0% to 30%, while the compressive rate varied from 0% to 50%. The results indicate that both the tensile stress and compressive stress affect the treeing propagation characteristics. The appearance probability of bush tree increases and it becomes the main tree structure at higher tensile rate, while branch tree turns into the main tree structure at higher compressive rate. Electrical tree initiation probability becomes higher and the initial time tends to be shorter under the tensile stress, while they show an opposite tendency under the compressive stress. Under tensile stress, the tree length, fractal dimension and accumulated damage become lager as the tensile rate increasing, which indicates that the higher tensile rate accelerates the treeing process. However, under the compressive stress, the treeing growth process shows a converse trend, which demonstrates that the higher compressive rate retards the electrical tree growth.
          Fractal-based electric field enhancement modeling of vacuum gap electrodes   
The objective of this paper is to study the characteristics of the microscopic electric field enhancement at the micro-projections on the contact surface based on the fractal modeling of the micro-projections in vacuum interrupters. In this paper, the distortions of the microscopic electric field caused by the micro-projections were studied in the case of the applied voltage 60 kV and the contact gap 2 mm. Moreover, the microscopic enhancement factor βm for the various micro-projections with the height-radius ratio being less than or equal to 50 were investigated. First, the basic Weirstrass-Mandelbrot (W-M) fractal function was introduced and simplified into the modeling of the various micro-projections with the height-radius ratio 0.2, 0.4, 1, 2, 10 and 50 respectively. Then, the electric field distributions were analyzed based on these micro-projection fractal models. The simulation results showed that the micro-projections would cause a distortion of the microscopic electric field at the micro-projections on the contact surface, especially in the case of the higher height-radius ratio. In this paper, with the height-radius ratio of the micro-projections increasing from 0.2 to 50, the microscopic enhancement factor βm based on the fractal models would increase from 16 to 3667. In comparison with the idealized ellipsoid model, to the same height-radius ratio of the micro-projection, the microscopic enhancement factor βm based on the fractal models was about four times higher than that based on the ellipsoid models. Furthermore, the microscopic electric field at the micro-projections would have a significant influence on the micro-particles impact phenomena and other microscopic physical phenomena which could give rise to the vacuum breakdown. The results could provide some useful information to understand the physical mechanism to trigger the vacuum breakdown.
          Problems of Used the Technical and Fractal Analysis on FOREX    

Annotation: This article deal with the main problems of using the technical analysis on FOREX and to the defining the way of removing such problems. The major emphasis is laid to the techniques of synergetic approach because fractal analysis is one of the complicated kinds of analysis. Key words: technical analysis, fundamental analysis, fractal dimension index, trader, pair of currencies, investment horizon. I Entry: FOREX is one of the most remarkable markets not for the only generation in many countries all over the world. It is characterized by many advantages such as: suitable conditions and wide possibilities. Many financial organizations, funds, commercial and central banks, and sole proprietorships are the participants of this market. Each of such groups has its own interests and advantages on the FOREX, for example protecting the national currency or taking speculation profit. All participants fulfill their own main functions: writing trade rules, providing liquidity, regulating exchange rate. FOREX is a huge market embracing the world. The problem of using the technical analysis, as a main kind of analysis for forecasting future exchange rate was described by such authors as J. Murphy [3], S. Achelis [1], A. Elder, E. Peters [7], B. Williams [2]. Thanks for Ukrainian authors O. Sochatska, E. Naiman [4, 5, 6], who in their researches has investigated the technical analysis problem; this kind of forecasting has become popular in our country. But some problems are not decision for this time. II Problem: Exchange market traders require decision of such problems as choice effectively methods of trading, wage of new approaches and others. All these problems are the task of our article.

          Derivation of a generalized Schrödinger equation from the theory of scale relativity   
Eur.Phys.J.Plus 132 (2017) 286

by: Chavanis, Pierre-Henri
Abstract:
Using Nottale’s theory of scale relativity relying on a fractal space-time, we derive a generalized Schrödinger equation taking into account the interaction of the system with the external environment. This equation describes the irreversible evolution of the system towards a static quantum state. We first interpret the scale-covariant equation of dynamics stemming from Nottale’s theory as a hydrodynamic viscous Burgers equation for a potential flow involving a complex velocity field and an imaginary viscosity. We show that the Schrödinger equation can be directly obtained from this equation by performing a Cole-Hopf transformation equivalent to the WKB transformation. We then introduce a friction force proportional and opposite to the complex velocity in the scale-covariant equation of dynamics in a way that preserves the local conservation of the normalization condition. We find that the resulting generalized Schrödinger equation, or the corresponding fluid equations obtained from the Madelung transformation, involve not only a damping term but also an effective thermal term. The friction coefficient and the temperature are related to the real and imaginary parts of the complex friction coefficient in the scale-covariant equation of dynamics. This may be viewed as a form of fluctuation-dissipation theorem. We show that our generalized Schrödinger equation satisfies an H-theorem for the quantum Boltzmann free energy. As a result, the probability distribution relaxes towards an equilibrium state which can be viewed as a Boltzmann distribution including a quantum potential. We propose to apply this generalized Schrödinger equation to dark matter halos in the Universe, possibly made of self-gravitating Bose-Einstein condensates.

          Hacia una hijeidad* consciente

“¿Es necesario tener un padre y una madre?” 

A nuestros ancestros se les pondrían los pelos de punta al ver que generaciones y generaciones posteriores, en ese futuro tan prometedor, sus descendientes cuestionarían temas tan obvios como la importancia de tener un padre y una madre.
¿Cómo se puede dudar de algo tan evidente?
¿Es que no somos conscientes de nuestra hijeidad?

¿Es que no conocemos nuestra biografía desde la concepción? ¿Qué necesidades tuvimos en nuestra vida prenatal tanto respecto a nuestra madre, hacia nuestro padre, y hacia la sociedad? ¿Qué sentimientos congelamos, qué palabras hubiéramos querido poder expresar? ¿Es que no nos hemos planteado qué hemos aprendido de nuestro padre? ¿No sabemos qué hemos recibido de la parte paterna de nuestro árbol genealógico? ¿Qué hemos aprendido de nuestra madre? ¿Qué hemos recibido de la parte materna de nuestro árbol genealógico?
Y en la parte paterna también hay mujeres.
Y en la parte materna también hay hombres.
La unión de un hombre y una mujer es condición necesaria para la llegada de un hijo. No sólo porque representa un fractal mayor coherente con la unión física del espermatozoide y el óvulo, sino porque también está en armonía con la unión energética del óvulo y el espermatozoide.

Cada persona tiene que ver con su padre y con su madre, a partes iguales;
la famosa “igualdad” tan reivindicada hoy día pero únicamente cuando interesa, y cuando no, pues des-igualdad, des-equilibrio, des-orden. Una mujer no puede tener hijos sola, o un hombre no puede tener hijos solo, o dos hombres juntos, o dos mujeres juntas... ¿un óvulo solo ante el milagro de la vida?, ¿un espermatozoide solo en el don de procrear?, ¿2 espermatozoides uniéndose?, ¿2 óvulos fusionándose para recibir un nuevo ser?. Eso no es posible, porque la unión de un óvulo y un espermatozoide tiene un Sentido y una Razón de Ser. Porque esa nueva criatura tiene como condición necesaria para su constitución la unión de lo masculino y de lo femenino, como eje principal de su propósito de vida.

La hijeidad consciente, la cualidad, el estado, el arte de ser hijo, concepto que hace unos años fui captando desde lo abstracto, lo inconcreto, lo difuso, sin un nombre claro, después decidí la palabra (con “e” en vez de “hijaidad” uhijoidad” para incluir a los dos sexos y ubicar el concepto en un nivel mayor), y luego me fui atreviendo poco a poco a compartirlo con algunas personas cercanas. Al ver que esa idea era bien recibida, lo hice público tímidamente al presentar mi proyecto de talleres sobre Consciencia Prenatal y Perinatal, ante la falta generalizada de consideración al punto de vista del hijo, ante la ignorancia mayoritaria en comprender que el ser humano es consciente desde su concepción y que necesita por tanto un cuidado integral. Ahí hay una persona que se tiene que respetar desde el principio. Se es padre o madre porque hay un hijo o una hija. Y primero venimos al mundo siendo hijos o hijas, una hijeidad que durará toda la vida, por muchas otras nuevas condiciones que vayamos añadiendo, padre, madre, abuelo, abuela...

La hijeidad está vinculada con ser humano porque se es humano siendo hijo. ¿Pero, qué es eso de ser hijo? ¿Qué es ser humano, ser único y a la vez estar vinculado física-emocional-psíquica y espiritualmente con los progenitores y éstos a su vez con sus propios progenitores, y ellos a los suyos y así, ¿hasta dónde??

Los vínculos de filiación son inquebrancables. Perduran en cada persona toda su vida. Sean positivos o negativos, saludables o traumáticos,... y se traspasan de generación en generación, aprendizajes heredados, retos, obstáculos, pruebas más allá del tiempo, logros, dones, propósitos de una Gran Alma Familiar para evolucionar, crecer, vivir con más libertad. Yo he revivido en sueños sucesos traumáticos de mis antepasados que se habían olvidado o se ignoraban en generaciones posteriores y un nuevo miembro, en este caso yo, recuperaba la memoria colectiva a través de la conexión onírica. Tiempo después recibí el regalo de poder verificar que esos sucesos fueron ciertos y que no eran vidas pasadas “mías” ni simbolismos típicos en el análisis de sueños convencional, como supuse al principio, sino vidas pasadas, sí,... pero ¡de otros!. Hay un vínculo mucho más profundo con los progenitores y con los antepasados como para simplemente llamarlo “genética”. Hay algo vivo... que permanece... que anhela sanación...y que nos da Fuerza...

Ahora más que nunca se hace necesario recuperar esa hijeidadperdida, olvidada. Para comprender las necesidades básicas de uno mismo, y de todo ser humano y para preservarla consciente en la futuras generaciones. La familia raíz, padre, madre e hijo no es algo cultural, o dependiente de las modas, es una realidad biológica que nos constituye queramos o no, la honremos o no y que nos acompaña de por vida, aun con los padres ya fallecidos... El hijo es la memoria viviente de la Vida de los dos progenitores.

La unión de un óvulo y un espermatozoide no sólo es un tema horizontal... también es una conexión vertical. Y es que Dios... (el Todo... lo abarcante de todo... la esencia profunda de las distintas religiones,...) está por todas partes.... hasta en el Sexo entre un óvulo y un espermatozoide, hasta en el Sexo entre un hombre y una mujer. Pero como es invisible.... ¿quién se da cuenta?

El camino de recuperar la hijeidad no sólo trata de reflexionar sobre el padre y la madre propios... y como consecuencia también sobre sus propios progenitores...Va de autosanación radical, de acceder a raíces más y más hondas del pasado en esta vida que afectan el presente, de sentir cómo nacimos, de sentir cómo nos gestamos, de sentir cómo fue nuestra concepción... Eso no sólo es autoconocimiento, una de las consecuencias es que se conoce al otro, a ese padre y a esa madre... cómo se sentían, qué les ocurría... La autosanación refuerza el vínculo afectivo con los progenitores y, entonces, uno se da cuenta, desde dentro, de lo importantes que son un padre y una madre.

Podemos violentar la fecundación humana y las primeras 2 semanas de vida con las llamadas Técnicas de Reproducción Asistida, pero con ellas no vienen al mundo personas “artificiales”, sino personas abrumadoramente sensibles por haber sido extremadamente agredidas en lo más profundo, durante su viaje inicial. ¿Vamos a tener que esperar que más y más personas intervenidas por estas técnicas acudan algún día con imperiosa necesidad a una terapia profunda, igual que ha sucedido por ejemplo con los nacimientos violentos, para darnos cuenta de que no estamos cuidando ni preservando la salud en la primera etapa de la vida?

Porque ser persona, lo humano, tiene que ver con la unión de un espermatozoide y de un óvulo, la unión de un hombre y una mujer... por mediación de Dios. El camino de recuperar la hijeidadtambién trata sobre la cuestión espiritual, porque sin Dios, no hay Vida. Dios es la evidencia pasmosa que ha pasado por alto la ciencia. Dios es la sustancia que nos anima. Quien da el Sí a una nueva vida.

La unión holística hombre-mujer no es algo pasado de moda, es el presente, pasado y futuro de la humanidad, porque sin ella, no hay hijos. Y agrediéndola, no hay hijos sanos. ¿Tiene mucho que ver el declive de nuestra civilización con estar también desgajando esta sagrada unión?

La mágica atracción entre el pronúcleo masculino y el pronúcleo femenino sucede en un fractal más pequeño de la realidad externa del espermatozoide y del óvulo... como si existiera en otra dimensión... alejada del mundanal ruido... en la intimidad... en la protección de lo inmanipulable, inviolable... lo masculino y lo femenino fusionándose por mediación de Dios...

Solos tu, yo... y el Todo... 

Toda persona comienza con la unión de los pronúcleos, y éstos dibujan una Vesica Piscis, símbolo por excelencia en geometría sagrada, símbolo común en muchas culturas y religiones, y la geometría de la luz. ¿Tiene en este sentido algo que ver el símbolo del pez con la concepción humana?

Quizá nuestra parte espiritual sea más evidente de lo que pensamos... Quizá ser hijo no sólo tenga que ver con tener un padre y una madre... Quizá ser hijo tenga también que ver, y sobre todo, con ser Hijo de Dios.

-Círculo abierto para compartir, preguntar, conocer, intercambiar, proponer, soñar, transformar...
Se trata de facilitar la comunicación y la aportación de
Espirales.
Pintado por María Jesús Blázquez
propuestas desde diferentes perspectivas para la acción individual y social, porque cada persona tiene algo valioso que aportar desde la sabiduría de su experiencia personal y profesional. Favoreciendo la sinergia grupal interconectando campos, disciplinas, saberes, visiones, intuiciones... con el fin de multiplicar sueños y compromisos y avanzar juntos en beneficio de toda la humanidad y el planeta.

 
-Dinámica grupal creativa
A través del lenguaje de los colores y las formas vamos a proponer un ejercicio en grupo para expresar creativamente y enraizar lo vivido en este curso jugando y disfrutando. Para ir cerrando este círculo desde la autenticidad y el sentimiento, con amor y ternura, y con el deseo de volver a encontrarnos.


(*) Recomendación: Debido al continuum argumental de los 3 módulos,
remarcamos la importancia de hacer el curso completo para tener una visión más global.

LOS FRACTALES





Esta figura es un fractal. Un fractal es una figura, cualquier figura, que se repite un número infinito de veces.

Un pequeño fragmento de cualquier fractal contiene una figura que es idéntica al fractal completo.



LA CURVA DE KOCH

En 1904 el matemático sueco Niels F. Helge von Koch (1870-1924) construye la curva que lleva su nombre.

Parte de un segmento unidad [0,1], poligonal P0, que divide en tres partes sustituyendo la parte central por los dos segmentos que, junto con dicha parte (anulada), formaría un triángulo equilátero. Se obtiene así la poligonal P1.

A continuación se repite el proceso con cada una de las partes resultantes y se obtiene la poligonal P2. Este proceso se repite indefinidamente obteniéndose en cada etapa k una poligonal de longitud (4/3)k.

La curva de Koch se define como la curva límite de la poligonal Pk cuando k tiende a infinito.

Un gráfico nos ayuda a comprender mejor este concepto:

LA ISLA DE KOCH

Si el iniciador del proceso es un triángulo equilátero y se utiliza como generador la curva de Koch, se obtiene la Isla de Koch o Copo de Nieve cuando n crece indefinidamente.













Luego otros matemáticos se dedicaron a crear variaciones del Copo de Nieve. Veamos:



FIGURAS DE SIERPINSKI

También son unos fractales muy conocidos, fueron creados por el mnatemático polaco Waclaw Sierpinspi (1882-1969) en 1915. Aquí los tienes:

          Is the Benford Law a cosmic truth?  What does it mean?   

The Law Of First Digits

Recently I had my first introduction to the Benford Law. 
For you more mathematically inclined it’s probably old news.
For a virgin like me, it was an amazing head trip.

Meditating on it, once the shear bewilderment at the concept wears off,
it does feel like sort of connection between the number thing and nature itself makes sense,
but it’s weird just the same.  I don’t have the tools to play with this the way a mathematicians can,
hell just trying to grasp the reality of the concept, still I can feel the fun in it.

I bet it ties in with fractals, be fun to see that formula   LOL

http://www.rexswain.com/benford.html
(From “The First-Digit Phenomenon” by T. P. Hill, American Scientist, July-August 1998)

Benford’s law predicts a decreasing frequency of first digits, from 1 through 9.
Every entry in data sets developed by Benford for numbers appearing on the front pages of newspapers, by Mark Nigrini of 3,141 county populations in the 1990 U.S. Census and by Eduardo Ley of the Dow Jones Industrial Average from 1990-93 follows Benford’s law within 2 percent.

Moc ráda bych vyjádřila vděčnost všem dárcům, díky nimž tyto stránky existují. Váš zájem projevený oceněním mě skvěle motivuje k dalšímu psaní. Tyhle dny odevzdávám práci, která mě poslední měsíce časově (i jinak) hodně vyčerpávala, budu se teď zas moci více věnovat psaní - jak knihy (na což se mooooc těším, protože tam zakomponuji nové poznání), tak hlubším článkům zde na Poselství nebo aktuálním tématům na Liveinspirit, kterými se snažím poznané informace ukotvit do každodenního života.

Chtěla jsem dnes napsat něco o tom, jak je rozmanitost druhů nutná k přežití (eko)systémů, a že v přeneseném významu tedy vůbec není nutné, aby jeden člověk plival na odlišnost člověka druhého, ale vnutilo se mi tam téma jiné, pro mě velmi podprahové, takže ten tam bylo moje soustředění na vybrané téma. Tím silným tématem pro mě je strach o matku. Strach o ženu. Strach o jin. Strach o Zemi. Strach o duši, tedy o konceptuální femininní vyjádření bezrozměrného ducha/vědomí. Je to téměř přesně na den, kdy jsem si uvědomila, že za mým dřívějším vztekem se skrývá neuvěřitelný děs, že moje *máma* umře - ať už šlo o zlobu na lidstvo, které ničí Zemi; ignorantství lidí kolem vůči duši; nebo hádky s mojí mámou, že nežije tak, aby si udržovala zdraví. Loni přesně v tuhle dobu jsem se svou mámu téměř panicky snažila varovat před opakováním některých jejích vzorců, o pár dní později mi poslala z Maroka smsku: "Měla jsi pravdu. Sedím sama v poušti jako sedlák u Chlumce. Najdi mi letenku zpátky." A dva dny se neozvala. Tehdy jsem pod svým vztekem odhalila jádro svého strachu. Dnes jsem otevřela web a vyskočila na mě zpráva o dalším mohutném zemětřesení v Nepálu, které zasáhlo také severní Indii, kde je moje máma právě teď - kdesi na úpatí Himalájí. Nemáme o ní žádné zprávy. Takže znovu - zpráva spouštící strach... a čekání. Emoční reagování. Reakce = chemické procesy v těle. Tedy evoluce skrze šokovou terapii, Fénix, pálí mě celé tělo, pří-pouštím si to... a venku křičí malá holčička: "Budíčeeek." Moje geny jsou v země-třesení, jsem v neoddělení... Věřím, že až proces skončí, máma mi napíše něco o úchvatných zážitcích... jakoby se nechumelilo, pardon nezemětřesilo...

Ať mám vědomí jakékoliv, strach se ukrývá především v našich buňkách jako genetická informace. Sevření, třes svalstva, hukot v hlavě, pálící oči z přetlaku, který se chce v podobě slz (slaná voda) dostat ven z těla a vibraci strachu uvolnit, ... už když máma letos odletěla, aktivovaly se mi vzpomínky obdobných momentů strachu, nečekaně jsem se ten večer rozbrečela. Bezdůvodně. Dalo by se říct. Ale já už vím, které karty mám ve hře. Vím to, protože když jedna moje kamarádka byla těhotná, její přítel se opil a začal dělat lehkovážné blbinky... a najednou cvak, ... a já ležím na zemi s naraženými zády pod třemi chlapy velikosti hory. A cože se odehrálo během třech sekund před tím? Můj instinkt těla odpojil moje vědomí, aby mohlo zareagovat neuvěřitelně rychle. Měla jsem záblesk toho, co se stane. A tělo začalo jednat. Z kvantové superpozice. Už jsem byla na konci negativního výsledku, vrátila jsem se a změnila osudovou linii. O životě a smrti rozhodují milisekundy, milimetry... rozhodujeme se životem opravdu pro život? Nebo jsme do něj nevědomě vtaženi a čekáme na smrt. Tam je ten rozdíl. Mezi životem a přežitím. Život vede k expanzi, k rozkvětu. Přežití je plné strachu a vede jen ke smrti.
Okamžitě jsem se ocitla mezi padajícím mužem (a dalšími dvěma padajícími muži, kteří se neúspěšně pokusili zachytit toho prvního) a těhotnou ženou, na jejíž břicho padali. Jednou rukou jsem strhla ohrožení směrem na sebe a druhou rukou jsem využila tlak váhy padajících mužů, abych svou kamarádku odsunula po lavici pryč od ohrožení. Nikdy jsem si neuvědomila, že mám v těle takovou sílu. Pro všechny zúčastněné to byly tři nedůležité sekundy ("Všechno je v pohoděěěě."), pro mě celá věčnost. Čas se zpomalil a rozdělil na jednotlivé sekvence (viz O povaze času - Liveinspirit), v nichž jsem si později mohla listovat jako v kartotéce. Najednou jsem se ocitla v děloze z tím dítětem a sledovala, jak se do něj zapisují genetické informace: "Můj otec ohrožuje mou matku." Ve stejný okamžik jsem byla i já plodem a z mého těla se tato informace velkým žárem vypalovala (doslova odpařovala) a z ní povstávala nová informace: "Jsme chráněni." (procesem odpařování prochází i vážka, o které jsem psala nedávno).
Paradoxně strach o matku jako zdroj života vede k její záchraně. Genové klíče říkají: "Tzv. sobecký gen byl po celá staletí nezbytný pro naše přežití, dokud jsme nevybudovali byť nedokonalou, tak stále vcelku funkční společnost." Nicméně lidská genetika si počíná být vědoma, že stávající cestou expanze bez ukotvování vývoje tahle prázdná bublina může velmi brzy prasknout. Je třeba smýšlet v širším rámci, tedy v duchu celého druhu a jeho prostředí. Ti, kteří tuto změnu odmítnou, budou eliminováni, nijak drasticky, jejich genetická linie zkrátka vyhyne. To je důvod, proč je tolik mužů i žen neplodných, rodové linie došly do slepých uliček - většina z nich je touto cestou zavedena k alter-nativnímu poznání, které změní jejich genetiku, a tím je jim dáno mít potomka.

Jako lidstvu nám chybí poučení z minulosti, které bychom mohli integrovat do svého rozhodování, a zároveň se vzpíráme zákonům přírody - zejména zákonu příčiny a následku, který se může stát naším posledním soudem v případě, že budeme přemýšlet pouze v rámci sebe a časového rámce svého života. Další generace se budou muset vyrovnat s následky našich bezohledných činů, možná tak získají pochopení a dojde k evolučnímu skoku lidstva. Jinak zasáhne sama příroda - pokud se nějaký druh přemnoží, vždy dojde na Zemi k mechanismu vyrovnání ekosystému.

Pokud vývoj neprobíhá fraktálně - neopírá se o základy předchozího vývoje, ale jen dál a dál znásilňuje sebe sama a zdroje, pak nevytváří prosperitu života a dříve či později se sám do sebe zhroutí. Proč do sebe? Aby nepoškodil fungující prvky celku. Jako když stavitelé pečlivě udělají výpočty a odstřelí budovu tak, aby nepoškodila její okolí. To není výhrůžka, ale varování. Vše se komplikuje tím, že nemáme přístup k vzpomínkám vlastního druhu. Jak jsme o ně přišli, není důležité. V počátku této novodobé civilizace byl strach a manipulace (od události zvané "velká potopa" do dnešní doby). Myslím, že to bylo ve filmu 2012, kde lidstvo bylo postaveno před základní otázku - Budeme riskovat vyhynutí celého druhu nebo v rámci záchrany několika elitních jedinců obětujeme zbytek přeživších? To je smyčka, do které se dostává každá civilizace. Domnívám se, že každou novou civilizaci vytvářelo vždy několik privilegovaných, kteří zneužívali skutečnost, že díky své rodové moci měli přístup k realitám, které jim umožnili přežití - z tohoto genetického materiálu vzrůstáme a do tohoto genetického materiálu zasazujeme tzv. diasporu lásky, semena jediného národa plného rozmanitosti, který žije rozptýlen v prostředí jiného druhu, ale je si vědom sjednocení. Ať už to nazveme kristovské vědomí, nebo jinak. Jde zkrátka o překonání iluze formy (resp. uvědomění si, že forma existuje, ale je řízená vědomím, čím více si to forma připouští, tím více je plněna vědomím, tím více se osvobozuje od sebeidentifikace).

Jde tu tedy o vybudování si schopnosti překonat sobecký gen a postavit kolektivní ctnost nad vlastní strach ze smrti. Díky své schopnosti prožívat velmi silné vize jsem si toto rozhodnutí prožila, nicméně jsem si s sebou nesla otisk velké zlosti k této elitě, jíž jsem mohla být součástí, ale odmítla jsem, neboť jsem nechtěla být součástí utváření nově vznikající civilizace s jasným záměrem utváření moci a manipulace. Takový příběh už mě přestal zkrátka bavit. Jenže tím jsem se překlopila z pozice tyrana do mentality oběti, abych pochopila, že o nic jiného než o příběhy nejde. Člověk za člověkem, civilizace za civilizací, Země za Zemí, eon za eonem...

Vím, že vím. A vím, že mé vědění je hra. Mé vědomí utváří podobu mého vědění, moje vědění se identifikuje a moje vědomí se baví. A zároveň kde není já, nemůže být ani ztotožnění. Jsme drátěné plůtky v oceánu snažící se vytvořit prostor pro sebepojetí, vědomí se námi prolévá a my se snažíme s ním identifikovat a zachytit integrovaný celek jedinečné osobnosti. Je to zábavné, o to více - jsme-li si tohoto paradoxu vědomi a hrajeme si se svou vlastní formou a tím, co ji zrovna naplňuje. Karmu si nenese ono ztotožnění se s formou, nýbrž sama forma - která fraktálovitě vychází z toho, co už bylo, a utváří příběh opírající se o stejné archetypy. Jakmile je toto rozpoznáno, rodí se archetyp nový. Osvobození od formy, přerod ve formu novou.

To může být pro někoho nepřijatelné. Ta nejednoznačnost. Tvrzení, které vyvrátí vzápětí samo sebe. Děsivé. Pro mysl, která se snaží zmatek interpretovat a brání představivosti, aby si hrála. A já říkám - dobře - vyděste svou mysl tak, že se pod nátlakem logického paradoxu zhroutí sama do sebe, aniž by poškodila integritu celku (Já jsem a zároveň mám vědomí, že je to iluze). A to je konečně pořádná sranda, protože je tu jistota, že některé otázky ještě dlouho nebudou zodpovězeny, protože otázky se teprve rodí...

Nejdřív jsem nechápala, jak spolu témata matky (nositelky života) a genu sobeckosti souvisí, ale pak to vyplulo na povrch. Delfíni jako vyšší druh operují na úrovni kolektivní mysli, je-li mládě delfína ohroženo, starší jedinec se pro něj obětuje, aby byl zachován genetický vývoj... je to bytí jednoho organismu, namísto abychom žili na úkor budoucích generací. To znamená, že instinktivně už na této úrovni můžeme operovat i my lidé... děje se to, přecházíme do vyšší oktávy bytí, postupně, jeden po druhém... ani o tom nevíme. Nedovedeme si ani představit, jak podoba našeho života, našich proměn, na nichž všichni s velkým odhodláním pracujeme, ovlivňuje podobu budoucího života našich dětí a jejich dětí... Dnes jsem mohla vidět, kolik stresu a strachu bylo uloženého v mém těle. Máma se ještě neozvala, ale všechno  naznačuje, že je jen bez signálu.

          Sailing Venus: Verdandi Outpost   
I am remiss. It's been some months since I last posted an update on Sailing Venus, and there's really no excuse for that. I have not abandoned the project, although work progresses slowly as usual. My writer's group continues to meet, and provides valuable feedback every few weeks. More importantly, it provides a looming deadline that inspires frantic writing whenever time gets tight. That, possibly more than anything else, has kept me plugging away at this novel despite the myriad interruptions, distractions and setbacks that come my way.

Between you and me, chapters 6 and 7 were real bears to write. Originally envisioned as a single chapter, a good chunk into 6 I realized there was no way I could cram in everything that needed to happen without giving all the events and character moments short shrift. At that point I did what writers do and split the chapter in two. For some reason, twice as many words took me four times as long to write. With 7, in particular, I knew where things ended up, but little of what happened on the intervening pages. That proved to be quite the learning experience for me, and necessitated quite a bit of crash research into the Pyrenees Mountains (I was probably more surprised by that than you are).

With those trouble spots behind me, I'm happy to report that chapter 8 is also complete, with work on chapter 9 begun. I've topped 34,000 words--possibly, but not definitively--the most words I've committed to a single work of fiction since The Broken Balance, a terrible, derivative high fantasy mess that I completed when I was 17 years old. That word count places me beyond the 1/3 mark but not yet at the midpoint of the novel. I've hit two of the big milestones set up in my outline (which I'm already deviating from significantly, but it's still proving useful) with the first big action sequence on the horizon. The next two chapters are clearly defined in my head, and have been generally present as a concept from the earliest glimmerings of this story as a potential novel. It's always nice to make these long-gestating writerly ideas tangible on the page.

As I look at my calendar, I see I have 18 weeks to go before the World Fantasy Convention arrives in San Antonio. That gives me 16 weeks--I have two weeks coming up where I will be traveling and unable to do any meaningful writing--during which to complete roughly 12 chapters. At a glance, that should be do-able if I just hit a chapter a week. But I've been averaging maybe a chapter every two weeks, so that looming deadline is nervous-making. In my defense, I seem to be producing good words on the page. My writer's group members have varying degrees of experience, some being published a lot more than me, others a lot less, but they all have offered valuable insight at various times. The last two meetings, more than one has stated that they're reading my submissions less to offer critique and more to find out what happens next. I'll take that as a win.

Here's a sample from chapter 8. Erica's impulsive, leap-before-you-look nature has gotten her into progressively worsening trouble, but that's barely scratching the surface of what awaits the poor girl. Enjoy.

A confusion of voices assaulted her. Strong hands grabbed her and hauled her up from the floor. Ozone tinged the stale, steamy air. Erica blinked. Several ill-defined figures stood around her, all shouting at once. She blinked again, trying to focus. Wan yellow light streamed in through a row of small portholes. Bunks. The portholes were in open bunks, the privacy doors rolled up. Blankets and personal items lay strewn about.

"My dad," Erica managed at last. "I need to see my dad."

"Who are you?" The speaker stared at her intently, his sagging, sallow face crusted on one side with dried blood, his wiry hair glistening with sweat.

"My god, what's wrong with her skin?" a second voice asked.

Erica realized her tattoos had taken on a linear fractal pattern. In the poor light, it appeared as if maggots swarmed beneath her skin. Annoyed, she turned them off.

"I'm Erica Van Lhin. My father's Geraard Van Lhin, Risk Management Chief Inspector," she said. "He's here with his inspection team. I need to see him. Now!"

The cascade of voices fell silent. The Venusian winds howled mournfully outside.

"Child," said a bald woman gripping a bunk for support, one arm in a sling. "The three of us you see here, we're... we're the only survivors.

"Your father's dead."

深度学习



OpenAI是由诸多硅谷大亨联合建立的人工智能非盈利组织,目的是预防人工智能的灾难性影响,促使人工智能发挥积极作用。本文由OpenAI的研究人员Andrej Karpathy撰写,主要陈述了他通过分析机器学习论文数据库arxiv-sanity里面的28303篇论文里面的高频关键词所发现的有趣的结论。


你是否用过谷歌趋势(Google Trends)(https://trends.google.com/trends/?cat=)呢?它的功能很酷:只需要输入关键词,就可以看到该词的搜索量随时间变化的情况。这个产品在一定程度上启发了我,恰巧我有在过去五年中发表在(arxiv)机器学习论文数据库(http://arxiv-sanity.com/)上的28303篇论文,所以我想,为什么不研究一下该领域发展变化的情况呢?研究结果相当有趣,所以我决定跟大家分享一下。

(注:机器学习是一个包罗万象的领域,本文中相当长的篇幅是对深度学习领域的研究,这也是我最为熟悉的领域)


arxiv的奇点

让我们先来看看提交到arxiv-sanity的所有分类(cs.AI, cs.LG, cs.CV, cs.CL, cs.NE, stat.ML)下的论文总数随时间变化的趋势,如下图所示:


从28303篇论文看机器学习领域的发展变化机器学习


没错,峰值位于2017年3月,这个月这些领域有近2000篇论文提交。这一峰值很可能是某些会议的截稿日期(例如NIPS/ICML)造成的。由于并不是所有人都会将他们的论文上传至arxiv,而且上传比例也在随时间变化而变化,所提交的论文数量并不能完全体现机器学习这一领域的研究规模。不过可以看到,有大量的论文为人所注意、浏览或者阅读。


接下来,我们用这一数字作为分母,看看多少文章包含我们感兴趣的关键词。


深度学习框架

首先,我们关心的是深度学习框架的使用情况。如果在文中任何地方有提到深度学习框架,包括参考书目,都会被记录在案。下图是在2017年3月提交的论文中提到深度学习框架的情况:


从28303篇论文看机器学习领域的发展变化机器学习

可见2017年3月提交的论文中有约10%提到了TensorFlow。当然不是每篇文章都会写出他们所用的框架,不过如果我们假定提及与否和框架类型无关(即说明框架的文章有相对确定的使用比例)的话,可以推断出该社区大约有40%的用户正在使用TensorFlow(如果算上带TensorFlow后端的Keras框架,数量会更多)。下图是一些常用框架随时间变化的趋势图:


从28303篇论文看机器学习领域的发展变化机器学习

我们可以看到,Theano在很长时间占据主流,后来不再流行;2014年Caffe的发展势头强劲,不过在最近几个月内被TensorFlow取代;Torch(和最近的PyTorch)同样在缓慢稳步发展。它们未来发展的状况会是怎样呢?这是一个有趣的话题,个人认为Caffe和Theano会继续下降,TensorFlow的发展速度则会因为PyTorch的竞争而放缓。


ConvNet模型

常用的ConvNet模型的使用情况又是怎样呢?我们可以在下图看到,ResNets模型异军突起,该模型出现在去年3月发表的9%的论文中。



从28303篇论文看机器学习领域的发展变化机器学习

另外,我很好奇在InceptionNet出现之前有谁在讨论inception呢?


优化算法

优化算法方面,Adam一枝独秀,在所有论文中的出现率高达23%!其真正的使用率很难统计,估计会比23%更高,因为很多论文并没有写出他们所使用的优化算法,况且很多关于神经网络的研究并不使用任何此类算法。然而也有可能要下调5%,因为这个词也非常可能是指代作者的名字,而Adam优化算法在2014年12月才被提出。


从28303篇论文看机器学习领域的发展变化机器学习

研究者

我关注的另一指标是论文中提及深度学习领域的研究专家的次数(这与引用次数有些类似,但是前者能更好的用0/1指标表达,且能根据文章总数进行标准化):



从28303篇论文看机器学习领域的发展变化机器学习

需要注意的是:35%的文章提到了“bengio”,但是学界有两个叫Bengio的专家,分别是Samy Bengio和Yoshua Bengio,图中显示的是两者总和。特别地,Geoff Hinton在30%的最新论文中也被提到,这是一个很高的比例。


关键词研究

最后,本文没有针对关键词进行手动分类,而是关注了论文中最热门和最不热门的关键词 。


最热门关键词

定义最热关键词的方法有很多,本文使用的方法如下:对于在所有论文中出现的一元分词和二元分词,分别计算出去年和去年以前该词的使用次数,并用二者相除得到的比例做排名。排名靠前的关键词是那些一年前影响有限、但是最近一年出现频率极高的词汇,如下表所示(该表是删除重复词以后的结果):


从28303篇论文看机器学习领域的发展变化机器学习

举例来说,ResNet的比例是8.17,该词在一年之前(2016年3月)只在1.044%的论文中出现,但上个月8.53%的论文中都有这个关键词,所以我们有8.53 / 1.044 ~= 8.17的比例。


所以可以看到,在过去一年流行起来的核心技术有:1) ResNets, 2) GANs, 3) Adam, 4) 批规范化(BatchNorm)。


关于研究方向,最火的关键词分别是1)风格转换(Style Transfer), 2) 深度强化学习, 3) 神经网络机器翻译(“nmt”),或许还有 4)图像生成。


整体构架方面,最流行的是1) 全卷积网络(FCN), 2) LSTMs/GRUs, 3) Siamese网络, 和4) 编码-解码器网络。


从28303篇论文看机器学习领域的发展变化机器学习

最“过时”关键词

相反的,过去一年不再流行的关键词有哪些呢?如下表所示:



从28303篇论文看机器学习领域的发展变化机器学习

我并不确定“fractal”的含义,不过大体上看,贝叶斯非参数统计似乎不那么流行了。

结论

所以,是时候提交应用全卷积网络、编码-解码器、批规范化、ResNet、Gan来做风格转换,用Adam来优化你的论文了。嘿,这听起来也不是很离谱嘛:)

Like DE((10000000,10000000,10000000),3) = 1.6038214855339491e-07 ?? def DE(c,q): z = np.array(c) dr = 1.0 r = 0. for i in range(40): r = np.linalg.norm(z) dr = (r**(q-1))*q*dr+1 if r>30: break p = atan2(z[1],z[0]) t = atan2((z[0]**2 + z[1]**2)**0.5,z[2]) z = (r**q)*np.array([sin(q*t)*cos(q*p),sin(q*t)*sin(q*p),cos(q*t)]) z+=c return 0.5*log(r)*r/dr

Lay Down (With) Your Armor


The Best of 2009

For yet another year I have lived two musical lives, one ever deeper into obscure mazes of metal, one out in the sunshine and warm air. Nothing feels contradictory about this: I'd live three or four more musical lives at once if I had the time. I'd happily live parallel lives in other aspects of my existence if there were ways. Life is short, so of course we want it to be wider.

But what I realize, really only as I compile these lists, is that my metal and non-metal lives are not so much parallel as perpendicular. My metal top-10 this year has 7 bands I'd never heard of before 2009, two more I knew and disliked, and just one band that has ever made one of these lists before. For a temperamentally obsessive emotional completist who still basically loves everything I've loved since I was 12 or so, this is borderline dumbfounding. Hopefully it's a combined testament to my own openness and the way the web has mostly eliminated any necessary logistical distinction between "heard of them" and "heard them". If I'd had to buy CDs to hear these bands, I'd have found one or two of them, or quite possibly none. And without them, I'd still have had no trouble making a list I felt just as strongly about, but there's no way to unlove, or at least no way I know or want to. I have always been convinced that there is more music I would love, farther in every direction I have looked, but I'm not sure I've ever felt as empirically justified in this belief.

And meanwhile, away from metal, I've also had a great listening year in which I could easily make a replacement top-10 if everything on this one mysteriously vanished. But almost nothing on either list was new to me. One band I'd forgotten about, one I hadn't previously loved. Basically, I heard lots of great music that wasn't metal this year, but I didn't discover much. That thread of my year was receptive and curious, but mostly not exploratory. And so there is probably music I didn't hear that I would have loved as much as some of these records.

But that, of course, was always the case. I have found the time to love these things. I have found these sounds to be worthy of my time, which is a finite resource, and my love, whose boundaries I have occasionally thought I'd distantly seen, and always been wrong.


Albums (Metal)


1

Madder Mortem: Eight Ways

Genres are vectors, not shapes. They do not, at least the living ones, draw delineations between what is and what isn't, but rather trajectories towards and away. There are guitar timbres and cadences that are correlated with metal, but also songs with those features that no more belong to Metal than I was Estonian for three days in Tallinn. And bands with a hundred other influences and inclinations that I can instantly recognize as part of my version of this elusive idea.

And thus my favorite metal album, this year, coalesces out of a dozen different shadows, Fugazi minimalism wound tensely around Rush's expansive confidence, or Vernon Reid's buzzsaw guitar skittering off the jump-cut fractures of Chicks on Speed, or Janis Joplin and Tommy Iommi hijacking Life Without Buildings, or frost giants with the dexterity of Pixies. I hear Cynic playing Cowboy Junkies, and Enslaved backing Mecca Normal, and then a sudden vision of how Crimson would fare with a queen.

For moments, Eight Ways follows all these lines and others, and then always moments later Agnete Kirkevaag tears them diving away again, into gypsy tailspin or fight-song fervor or gnashing fractals of defiance. For an hour, it seems almost painfully clear to me that everything I've ever loved leads to this, and there's some chaos topology in which terrifyingly straight lines run from Ray Charles to Kate Bush to FSOL to some tiny seam on the back of my skull through which invisible wires patch directly into my sense of besieged humanity. For an hour at a time, repeated as often as I can bear, I remember precisely what draws me here, metal not as fantasy or escape, but as a relentless grip on writhing truth, and a celebration of irreducible complexity tantamount to sacred ritual.

Secrets of the Moon: Privilegivm

It is an essential component of the ingenious insularity of metal, and I do not mean this in any way glibly, that a lot of it seems wildly ridiculous. In an increasingly connectedly claustrophobic world, with vanishing latency between rebellion and commodification, alienating people is pretty much the only reliable way to block out any aesthetic breathing space. The difficult second-order trick, of course, is alienating people without becoming defined by them in the process. Thus the migration from the confrontational forms of speed- and thrash- and death-metal into the threateningly occult. If you can't shock people into being afraid of what you'll do to them, you might still be able to scare them into fearing what you'll convince them to do to themselves.

So the cheerfully pointless orthographic substitution of "v" for "u", and the luminously hollow apple on the black cover of Privilegivm, and the solemn half-intelligible liturgical intonations of "chop down the tree of life" and "the gods will know your name" all aspire to the provoke, I think, the same puzzled shudders once engendered by the garish underbrush of Black Sabbath. There's no easy violence to explain this as reaction or hyperbole. Whatever secrets the moon has, surely airlessness renders them moot. Surely. But in a year when Sabbath themselves were stomping around in gleaming uniforms, however relogoed, Secrets of the Moon were again, for me, truer heirs to their original spirit of wakeful darkness. I owe my life in metal to Iommi and Dio as much as I owe anything to anybody I've never met, but The Devil You Know is self-declaratively complacent, metal as a template theme, not a philosophy.

And not that I can quote verses of literal inspiration from Secrets of the Moon, either. I doubt I could produce a page of coherent lyrical transcription from memory from all these albums put together, honestly, even allowing that some of them are in languages I don't speak. But the hollow apple is there to suggest that the tree of knowledge was never more than a convenient pretext for layoffs, anyway. The great insight instantiated in the idea of evil, and in all this music that flaunts nominal lineage from darkness and doubt, is that there is no such divide. There are no forbidden secrets, in the moon or anywhere else. These anti-temples and beautiful ominous monuments are erected on the sites of myths to say that we are free to inhabit what we are supposed to fear.

Thy Catafalque: Róka Hasa Rádió

Or else we cling to the idea of a dark side because we need so badly for there to be somewhere other than this. Thus the appeal of Avatar, obviously, a movie that desperately needed to better understand the component of alienation in "alien". I loved the experience of being taken to Pandora for 162 minutes, but I hated that by the end there was nothing shocking about taking off the glasses again. So much exquisite imagination of the physical detail of another place, so much canned exaltation of souls, and yet so little depth of either humanity or non-humanity, and so little empathy for any idea that there could be souls in other forms that there might as well have been no characters at all. In fact, excise the humans and the Na'vi both, right from the first draft of the script, and Avatar might have grown into something worth, to us as a society, the absurd sums we retroactively spent on it. It would challenge and nourish us to be transported into a different world, with a logic of its own. Instead, we get our own dopiest mannerisms texture-mapped onto perfunctory aliens like moral graffiti, a monumental void of inspiration and procedurally inexplicable failure of courage.

And part of what we do with music, and why music is an element where movies are an industry, is let ourselves be taken elsewhere. I don't know how much time and money went into the making of Róka Hasa Rádió, but I could easily believe it was done by two Hungarians in their spare time from day jobs cleaning trains, on balky second-hand laptops in rooms with faded posters of Xenakis slowly crumbling onto the dusty tops of once-preciously-illegal shortwave consoles. And yet, with all the money on all the planets, Avatar would never have been any better than this. Here, unless you spend your days cleaning those same trains and this is actually what they sound like, is your voyage to an elsewhere, done in a medium qualitatively better suited for it. Here, in an album about which I know essentially nothing beyond its name, and ran across in a single random sentence somebody wrote somewhere about some other band entirely, is an effortless explosion of texture and flow and transport and altered perspective, spinning filaments of folk metal and carillon and Vangelis and Zoolook and radio static and alien loudspeaker announcements into an entire involuted universe. We are already standing on the roots of our Tree of Life. We are already the strangest creatures we can imagine, and this is not the limit of our imagination, but its origin.

Antigua y Barbuda: Try Future

I listen to so much metal whose lyrics I can't understand, and often aren't even meant to, but remain ironically sensitive to particular micro-nuances of vocal personality. Or perhaps this actually makes sense: I have absorbed the text into the coherent indivisibility of the music, and so it becomes necessarily critical how it's delivered. Either way, it was the careening vocals, closer to Sunny Day Real Estate's Jeremy Enigk than any metal referent I can think of, that initially arrested another of my random scans on Antigua y Barbuda, a band so obscure I had to add them to the Encyclopaedia Metallum myself. Months later they still have no EM ratings, which is as stark a demonstration as anything of what you must accept as possible when you agree to make art. It may not matter how good it is. Or, at least, it may not immediately matter. Try Future is the album I wanted all those Trans Am records to be, a boiling, sputtering epic of restlessness, flung between post-math and tech-something and Seventh-Rule vehemence. In a less fearful world, AyB would be the new Muse.


5

Funeral Mist: Maranatha

"It's the blood!" wails a voice, frantically, repeatedly, and after that it gets scarier. It's not always obvious from written descriptions that Black Metal is a good idea for a subgenre: strangled muttering as the defining vocal style, drums so fast that you skip headbanging and go straight to migraines, the production fidelity of portraiture via charcoal-on-newsprint left out in hailstorms, blustering Satanism as sacramental obscurism more often than gnostic rebuttal. As with any constructed form, treat it as formula and you'll get branded mediocrity. But subgenres arise on common ground, and there's usually some reason people were coming there before being there was its own excuse. Maranatha is as comprehensive an explication of the aesthetic's potential as anything I know: a Dantean maelstrom-descent in search of the root of contemptuously conventional religious spirituality for the express and singular purpose of ripping it out of bedrock with your own teeth.


6

Absu: Absu

Bleak extreme metal emanates temperamentally from frozen northern wastes. Absu are from Plano. When I was in high school in Dallas, and Plano were our archrivals, the place was at least a little wastelike, and it was a bit north of us, but the metro sprawl of Dallas has long since absorbed it into the vast homogeneity, and by now if Odin lived there he'd have an Arby's franchise and a two-year-old Blackberry. But then Metallica weren't from Norway, either, and Absu have maybe come as close as anybody in a couple decades to translating the frenetic domination of Master of Puppets into a new idiom. And if I had to reduce the year in metal to a single word, it would be Absu howling "Annihilate!"


7

Wardruna: Runaljod - Gap Var Ginnunga

In one sense metal only by affiliation (Kvitrafn and Gaahl were both in Gorgoroth for a while), Wardruna is a conceptual experiment in adapting runic texts to acoustic ambient ritualism, doing for hidden forest glades, perhaps, what plainsong did for stone monasteries. By rights this should be little more than a 52-minute sourcebook for those murmuring 1:15 intros to drinking-metal albums that are hoping to pass off indiscipline as paganism. It's spare and slow, driven unhurriedly by pattering hand-drums, near-subvocal chanting and some sproingy thing that sounds unnervingly like the kid behind you in homeroom playing his retainer-elastic with a Bic pen-cap. But if you can accept the idea of metal as as a textural system, subject to transliteration into different levels of elaboration, then this and Funeral Mist may be practical isomorphs. Ambient Metal used to be my joke genre, but here it is, real. If Avatar was transport by force, this is isolation by removal, a sound map for the hidden vales of quiet lost magic trapped inside us.


8

Lifelover: Dekadens

What HIM might sound like with nihilism substituted for love, and thus an intriguing argument that maybe ultimately they're the same.


9

Amorphis: Skyforger

I'd given up on Amorphis years ago, so I don't know why I even bothered listening to this. But I'd manage to miss that three albums ago they got a new singer and found, either consequently or coincidentally, a whole new focus. Skyforger is the best album of unapologetic metal songs I heard this year, and maybe a singlehanded revival of the lead-hook as melodic rapturism.


10

Cantata Sangui: On Rituals and Correspondence in Constructed Realities

The standard advice, impossible to argue with in generality, is that you have to focus. Do fewer things, so you can do them better. But the problem with this reasonable humility is that it's reasonable, or maybe it's that it's humble. It's defensive paranoia imported from civil engineering or pulmonary surgery or something, a recipe for turning adequate competence into recognizable inoffensiveness. It's foolproofing for people who have tried to substitute dignity for inspiration, and thus forgotten the critical detail that failure is relative where silence is absolute. Foolishness is a gift, not a disease. Fearlessly foolish straight from their ridiculous debut-album title to their preposterous combination of opera-gothic solemnity and rubberband pop glee, Cantata Sangui are yet another perpendicular justification for metal. Declare yourself outcast and you have escaped.


Albums (Non-Metal)


1

Manic Street Preachers: Journal for Plague Lovers demos + album + remixes

Two of my Desert-Island-Disc-level favorite artists had new albums this year, and they're my #1 and #2. This wasn't quite inevitable (both have made albums I haven't liked this much), but it's hardly shocking, and I'd feel self-conscious about it if they weren't such inarguable choices.

It was the Manic Street Preachers' year, for me. The album is good enough to be here, by itself, as taut and yearning a set of rock songs as anything they've done since Gold Against the Soul. Filling a whole record with words from the facing pages of deceased lyricist Richey Edwards' notebooks is the kind of patently terrible idea the Manics turn into supremely flawed greatness. They thrive on contradictions. No, more than that. They exist through contradictions. Intense political conviction clashes against strident immaturity (being dead or missing for 14 years hasn't made Edwards' writing any more sophisticated), plangent arcs of vehemence get snapped into halves and thirds to fit into song-meter, melodies soar over conjunctions and adverbs, even the titles seem engineered to be misquoted. Little wonder they were never huge in America, where Meat Loaf proved that most people can't even parse a sentiment spread out over more than one sentence.

But Journal for Plague Lovers isn't just an album, and if you believe that flaws can be integral to greatness, hearing it expand into a whole aesthetic system is like seeing souls become visible in the air above people's heads. The cycle starts with the demos, released complete as a bonus, and I could go back and forth between the versions almost indefinitely. They're nominally sketches and then pictures, but in many cases the process seems far more like derivation than polishing.

And they came to the US, after all, this band I have loved for 18 years and had never seen. They'd played in Boston only once, on some weekday in 1996 or so when I was horrifiedly out of town, and by the time they got here, this time, on the last night of the tour, James' voice was so shot he had to let the crowd take Traci's parts on "Little Baby Nothing". But they made it, and I made it, and for a short while a lot of years of my life and theirs telescoped into a both heartbreakingly and preciously small club. Standing on a balcony, watching people I've never met singing along with songs I can play in my head, I believe again that a small, near-solipsistic bit of human frailty can contain an internal universe big enough to nurture all our hopes.

But believing this is one thing, and hearing it happen is another. There's an album of remixes. At least half of my favorite remixes were already Manic Street Preachers songs, anyway, but this is now my vote for the greatest remix album so far in history, and the most compact defense yet of the whole form. The songs change moods, speeds, genders, cadences, conclusions, conditions. In places the remixes focus the original songs by contrast, in others they carve spaces around the boundaries of what the compositions dream. Now I want to hear the band play these songs, and then let them be reremixed, and then repeat. I'm pretty sure the cycle could go around four or five more times, at least, before the returns started even marginally diminishing. And this is what we embrace as possible in order to participate in art. That we do not make it, we just give it somewhere to begin.


2

Tori Amos: Midwinter Graces and Abnormally Attracted to Sin

Tori Amos had another studio album this year, as well. It, too, is tantamount to an ecosystem in itself, an episodic, resolutely self-contained, idiom-neological collage of energies and personas and confessions and smirks. I don't honestly think humans get any more talented than this.

And then there's a Christmas album. As far as I'm concerned there had previously only ever been two Christmas albums worth noting as standalone artworks, Loreena McKennitt's To Drive the Cold Winter Away and Low's Christmas. Tori's well-known religious issues made the idea at least superficially provocative, but I wasn't sure I actually wanted to find out whether I could bear "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" via "Happy Phantom".

But it's only after Midwinter Graces that I understand what I really think about Abnormally Attracted to Sin. What the "real" album is missing is the sound of Tori surprising herself. Those songs don't always sound like Tori knew all along where they were going, but they sound like she knew how she was going to find out. Midwinter Graces is a conversely breathtaking leap into the terrifying unknown, a glittering hymn to the realization that facing your angels is always far harder than facing your demons. With demons, if you can't understand them, you're allowed to fight them. No such alternative if the only recourse is forgiveness. In a way this is the stylistic and moral synthesis of McKennitt's scholarly distance and Low's deconstructed faith, as if maybe it isn't arbitrary that those are the two Christmas records I am drawn to, after all. And if Loreena offered me a way to appreciate something I didn't endorse, and Low showed a path towards something else I could schedule in its place, Midwinter Graces shows that both of these evasive impulses are ultimately fighting in polite disguise. You don't defeat things you fear, that only preserves and postpones them. If you want to be free of them, you have to understand them better than they understand themselves. Enemies can only ever disappear inside of you.


3

Idlewild: Post Electric Blues

I once said that Idlewild were the best rock band in the world, and then they promptly made a couple albums that weren't why, presumably not to spite me. My guess was that they were trying too hard to be something they thought somebody wanted them to be, which is never a great way to live, and the kind of people you fool this way make terrible friends. For Post Electric Blues Idlewild deliberately abandoned the record industry (or deliberately accepted having been abandoned by the record industry, I'm not sure and don't care which), and sound to me exactly as reinvigorated as a moral agenda could hope. They were always one of my favorite b-side bands, and here for really the first time a whole album has the energy they used to sublimate when they thought they were being graded, bouncy and uncluttered and unforced, more melancholy than roaring, more twang and chirp than slash and burn. It's neither post-electric nor blues, but then I guess I was as much to blame for mislistening as anybody; this is not an album by the world's greatest rock band. But this is its serenity, not its curse. This is the sound of a band not failing to be something else, but finding their own way again.


4

It Bites: The Tall Ships

Progressive rock is difficult, but progressive pop is hard. Marillion pulled it off on Misplaced Childhood, and maybe even more precisely on Holidays in Eden, but have long since sloughed into other moods. IQ made two more of my defining examples, Nomzamo and Are You Sitting Comfortably?, and had a new album this year themselves, but the one that sounded even more thrillingly like a late-80s IQ album was this surprise return by It Bites, an IQ peer last heard from when Are You Sitting Comfortably? was still new. An album for anybody who ever felt that there must be something good that Asia was a bad version of.


5

Bat for Lashes: Two Suns

Maybe the most deliberately ambitious record of the year, or at least the one with the surest sense of its own swirly aesthetic, and an argument that Avatar could have been done with hand-painted puppets, too. Kate Bush + Björk + Fleetwood Mac, or perhaps to Tori what Tori was to Kate.


6

Wheat: White Ink Black Ink

The band I would happily trade a Pazz & Jop of dull indie for, heirs at once of Big Star and Tom Petty and the Replacements and They Might Be Giants and Sloan.


7

Stars of Track and Field: A Time for Lions

There are lots of bands who sound like they're trying to sound like the 80s, but far too few that feel like they're trying to feel like that music made me feel.


8

Tegan & Sara: Sainthood

And so pop twists in wires,


9

Metric: Fantasies

and simmers in generator hum,


10

Maxïmo Park: Quicken the Heart

and corkscrews off the walls in pointy shoes, dancing with or without you.

Cool, I'll try that and see how it goes, I've had some great designs go down the pan because they can't render properly.

Thanks for the feedback, always nice to hear :)

Ah yes, I have the same problem.  Don't really know what causes it or how to fix it, but it has been recommended to me by others on DA to simply render the flame at a smaller size, then scale the layer.  Evidently, you don't lose too much quality, though I've never actually tested it myself.

And may I say that your designs are fantastic!  Thanks for sharing.


          Fractal/Abstract Wallpapers?   

Hey TruLAN

You got me started on the Flame thing again, not sure if you have ever had this before but occasionally GIMP won't render the flame as the base image I am using is too large...

You can see some of my latest designs here:

In my admittedly limited experience, there's not a huge market for fractal abstractions like these. Personally, I've tried selling mine as mousepads using the DeviantArt store feature, but, in the eight months I've been making these, nobody has ever bought one.

I did have an idea, though, to get a few of them printed out in large-format poster size and perhaps try to get them displayed in local art shows. As when selling anything, exposure is key. Of course, the ways in which...

I used layers and colouration before but didn't think about duplicating the layer to get a different effect, which is off because I've done it with photographs.  I hope you don't mind me borrowing the technique?

Not at all, not at all, here's hoping it works for you.  Gimp can be kinda funny about it sometimes.

And, thanks, by the way, for the compliment, much appreciated.

Thanks, its always nice to hear positive feedback, yours are pretty amazing!  I did a few of them but then started to have issues with my PC hanging when I was trying to do poster size images so stopped.

I used layers and colouration before but didn't think about duplicating the layer to get a different effect, which is off because I've done it with photographs.  I hope you don't mind me borrowing the technique?

here's one I did...

I wouldn't say mine are better, just different. Yours is quite lovely, if I may say so. And, yes, I use the Flame filter, but then play around with coloration and different layers and whatnot until I get to something I like.

The easiest way I've found so far to get them to be a bit brighter (if you're interested) is to make a black background layer, render the Flame on a new transparent layer, and then duplicate the Flame layer. Then, simply set the duplicate layer to overlay, go into the hue/saturation options, and set the saturation as high as it will go.

At any rate, thanks for sharing your work.

Thanks, but I have Gimp and already know how to make them (hence the link to my gallery).  What I was hoping for was to find that I was not the only one who does make them and, hopefully, to come across some new wallpapers.

Anyone make them and, if so, are you willing to share?

          Fractales : les nouveaux projets de Julius Horsthuis   
Julius Horsthuis présente ses derniers projets mettant en scène des fractales :- Self-Aware, un court-métrage sur l'émergence de la conscience ;- Fractalicious 6, une compilation de scènes [...]
          Episode 12: Awesome RFCs and Yolo   

Silex and PHP contributor Igor Wiedler joins Ben and Phil to talk about his recently accepted RFC: Importing namespaced functions along with a bunch of other super-nerdy things that he has been working on.


          Happy New Year!   
I know you'd say I'm late. Well, I know I am. So there's no point telling me. :P
Well, I've been around, here and there - and visibly, mostly there. Vain attempts to stick around here for any substantial time and manage to make a post have been spoilt, again as would be visible. So there's a lot to say.
  1. I'm sad that the single post I made having 5 pieces of art received lesser comments than other single-art posts. Well, I believe there can be too much of a good thing (or perhaps, ugly things heh:) ), in one go.
  2. A Lotta people took a review of the year that had passed by. Actually even more did, but these were three which I cared to read. I thought that it was pretty silly to care about what had happened. So I took to making a list. Not a list of resolutions. Ohh, resolutions are such a cilched word, Id never in a lifetime use them. And since the list is so impossible, I'd only dream about resolving to do them all. Here goes, in this year I plan to learn the following things:
  • Maya
  • Flash [with actionscript]
  • better Ps
  • better Ai
  • C++ programming
  • heuristics (?!)
  • make a [fractal-generating] software****
  • Mathematica
  • CSS
  • php
  • XML
I know its impossible to the point of frivolity, but it's stupid if I don't try at all, isn't it?

3. I have been making some more art, and putting many more widgets in the sidebar. Some might feel irritated - if you do, don't tell me cause I'm not gonna change. :P Just kidding. Comment for whatever you like, I luuurrrvvv comments. Although I very irresponsibly forget to reply to many, so forgive me, if I ahve ne that to you. and keep commenting.

4. Finally my art-of-the-post. I've learnt more of filters, and it's really fun. Even GIMP filters are real fun. One of them's actually a fractal-generation filter, and I just love the starburst one. It's beautiful. This thing's psd is 63 MB heavy, so don't even dream of asking me for it, if you can't meet me personally with a storage device. And it's even my new desktop wallpaper. Perhaps, you could've guessed that seeing the resolution. Yeah - I have a 19-inch monitor. Not news to most, though...

So, adieu for the time-being. Also, I'll might soon shift to Wordpress, so be ready for it... :D Keep reading, commenting, and hating me .X-D

          Comment on Why Modern Architecture sucks by Katherine   
I love this! Thank you so much. I am going to read the whole thing. The comments on fractals are wonderful insights. I have always been mesmerized by tiles, especially the patterns on ceramics. The idea that ornament, subdivision, orderly patterns, subdivisions, etc. are mathematical concepts made visual is brilliant. Of course. The author provides a simple and credible insight as to why this is so. Why people are simultaneously excited and calmed---stimulated in a positive way--- by such designs and by "good" architectural settings. Katherine
          Comment on Why Modern Architecture sucks by Anonymous   
Nikos Salingaros has a very readable article titled Architecture, Patterns, and Mathematics here: http://www.emis.de/journals/NNJ/Salingaros.html Below are a few excerpts to illustrate what it's about, including some amazing brayings by a certain Adolph Loos and Le Corbusier himself. […] Before the era of mass education, and for a great many people still today, architectural patterns represent one of the few primary contacts with mathematics. Tilings and visual patterns are a "visible tip" of mathematics, which otherwise requires learning a special language to understand and appreciate. Patterns manifest the innate creative ability and talent that all human beings have for mathematics. The necessity for patterns in the visual environment of a developing child is acknowledged by child psychologists as being highly instrumental. One specific instance of traditional material culture, oriental carpets, represent a several-millennia-old discipline of creating and reproducing visual patterns. A close link exists between carpet designs and mathematical rules for organizing complexity [6,7]. A second example, floor pavements in Western architecture, is now appreciated as being a repository -- hence, a type of textbook for its time -- of mathematical information [8]. […] We are interested here in what happened in the twentieth century. The Austrian architect Adolf Loos banned ornament from architecture in 1908 with these preposterous, unsupported statements: "The evolution of culture is synonymous with the removal of ornament from utilitarian objects. ... not only is ornament produced by criminals but also a crime is committed through the fact that ornament inflicts serious injury on people's health, on the national budget and hence on cultural evolution. ...Freedom from ornament is a sign of spiritual strength." [13] This hostile, racist sentiment was shared by the Swiss architect Le Corbusier: "Decoration is of a sensorial and elementary order, as is color, and is suited to simple races, peasants and savages.... The peasant loves ornament and decorates his walls." [14] Thus they condemned the material culture of mankind from all around the globe, accumulated over millennia. While these condemnations may seem actions of merely stylistic interest, in fact they had indirect but serious consequences. The elimination of ornament removes all ordered structural differentiations from the range of scales 5mm to 2m or thereabouts. That corresponds to the human scale of structures, i.e., the sizes of the eye, finger, hand, arm, body, etc. In the Modernist design canon, patterns cannot be defined on those scales. Therefore, modernism removes mathematical information from the built environment. Looking around at twentieth century buildings, one is hard-pressed to discover visual patterns. Indeed, their architects go to great lengths to disguise patterns on human scales that are inevitable because of the activities in a building; they arise in the materials, and as a consequence of structural stability and weathering. […] Architects complain that new buildings are bad because they are cheap and tacky; implying that they could be improved by a more generous budget. One hears that: "the reason beautiful buildings cannot be built today is because of the high cost of materials and workmanship". This statement is belied by the wonderful variety of folk architecture built the world over using inexpensive local materials. Architecture is about creating patterns and spaces; a preoccupation with materials only obscures more important issues. It is perfectly possible to build mathematically-rich structures on any budget, by applying the timeless rules derived by Alexander and elaborated by this author. New buildings are usually bad -- in particular, those with a big budget --because they are generated by a negative set of mathematical rules [1,10]. […] Modernist architects took the rectangular geometry of classical architecture, but eliminated subdivisions and subsymmetries (i.e., columns, cornices, fluting, and sculptural friezes). By explicit stylistic dictate, modernist architecture has no fractal properties, and that is one reason why it appears unnatural [20]. Traditional architecture, on the other hand, including that in a Classical style, tends to be explicitly fractal. Fractal subdivisions and scaling can be found in buildings of all periods and styles, and that crucial characteristic divides contemporary architecture from much of what has been built before. The exceptions are those older buildings wishing to disconnect from the pedestrian, usually in order to express power and to intimidate. The latter include monumental Fascist architecture, and its precursors in deliberately imposing, grandiose temples, palaces, and defensive military buildings of the past. […] Modernism removes fractals from our environment. Pure Platonic solids and fractals are incompatible, because the former exist only on a single level of scale. One definition of a fractal is a structure in which there is substructure (i.e., complexity) at every level of magnification. Magnifying a fractal by a fixed scaling factor, say 3, will give a set of pictures at magnification 1, 3, 9, 27, etc., all of which show structure and complexity. A "self-similar" fractal has the additional property that all these pictures are related by geometrical similarities (as long as one uses the scaling factor intrinsic to that fractal). The buildings of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe intentionally violate this rule, in an attempt to distinguish themselves both from natural forms, and from traditional building styles [1,2]. Some exceptions are discussed later. Recently, fractal dimensions have been calculated for Frank Lloyd Wright's and Le Corbusier's buildings, using the method of increasingly smaller rectangular grids [22]. The results show that (at least some of) Frank Lloyd Wright's buildings display a self-similar characteristic over a wide range of scales, from a distant view to finger-tip size detail, so those buildings are intrinsically fractal . In this, Wright was following the brilliant example of his teacher, Louis Sullivan. By contrast, Le Corbusier's architecture displays a self-similar characteristic over only two or three of the largest scales; namely, those corresponding to a distant view. Up close, Le Corbusier's architecture is flat and straight, and therefore has no fractal qualities. A fractal dimension between one and two characterizes a design that has an infinite number of self-similar levels of scale, whereas the fractal dimension of Le Corbusier's buildings immediately drops to one. ------------------------ Yet another excellent article. The Architect as Totalitarian Le Corbusier’s baleful influence by Theodore Dalrymple http://www.city-journal.org/2009/19_...corbusier.html [...] The most sincere, because unconscious, tribute to Le Corbusier comes from the scrawlers of graffiti. If you approach the results of their activities epidemiologically, so to speak, you will soon notice that, where good architecture is within reach of Corbusian architecture, they tend to deface only the Corbusian surfaces and buildings.

Martin and Scott discuss the impact of radio waves in the air on your health.

Behind the profit-fuelled rise of smartphones and tablets, microwave pollution is a serious assault on health.

Known for their beauty, aspens have been in decline across North America, with some dramatic losses in recent years. Aware of the rapid growth of radiofrequency (RF) radiation, particularly from mobile-phone ‘towers’, Colorado researcher Katie Haggerty had an inspiration: she planted three test plots of aspen seedlings.

Carefully matched in all other respects, one plot was shielded from a nearby town’s RF radiation, one was ‘mock’ shielded, and the other was left unprotected.

The difference, recorded in the International Journal of Forestry Research, was startling: the fully shielded saplings were vigorous and healthy, but both the ‘mock’ shielded and the exposed plants were small, lacked pigments, and had sickly leaves.

          Fractal Mathmematician Benoit B. Mandelbrot, 1924 – 2010    
Benoit B Mandelbrot. Apparently the 'B' stood for 'Benoit B Mandelbrot'

Benoît Mandelbrot has had his name applied to a feature of mathematics that has become part of everyday life, the Mandelbrot set. Beginning in the 1960s, Mandelbrot realized that many real-world phenomena in different branches of science display similar patterns that recur at smaller and smaller scales. These included clouds, snowflakes, coastlines, stock-market fluctuations, brain tissue, music, lingusistics and other phenomena. Mandelbrot modeled these phenomena with objects that he called "fractals." The name refers to a property called fractional dimensionality: fractals are fuzzier than a line but never quite fill a plane. The best known fractal is the Mandelbrot set. It is generated by repeatedly solving a mathematical function and plugging the answer back into it. Popular accounts of chaos theory sometimes present the Mandelbrot set and fractal geometry as a story of indeterminism. Actually, however, it is a story of how simple deterministic relations can produce extraordinarily complex results.

Benoît Mandelbrot died on October 14 from pancreatic cancer at the age of 85. On hearing of his death, mathematician Heinz-Otto Peitgen said "if we talk about impact inside mathematics, and applications in the sciences, he is one of the most important figures of the last 50 years." French President Nicolas Sarkozy said Mandelbrot had "a powerful, original mind that never shied away from innovating and shattering preconceived notions...His work, developed entirely outside mainstream research, led to modern information theory."

          Automated Forex Systems Of The New Millenium   
If you are serious about trading currencies, I have no doubts that you are among those who are looking for the "Holy Grail" of the forex trading systems. And, of course, you'd love to have an automated forex system that actually works, because very often they are disappointing. Thanks to the Internet and the changes to the trading laws in most of the countries, any person can get involved in forex and participate in that enormous market. All that is necessary to do that is having an Internet connection and an account with a forex broker (loaded with some trading capital at least $2K is recommended, but some brokers allow to trade with much less).

Neither stock or futures trading have it, but forex trading has the "built-in" protection against losing the trading capital (no debt balances are allowed), but it's never pleasant to see your money being depleted. So as soon as you experience a series of losing trades, you start looking for that "Holy Grail" - a trading system that will help you not only protect your trading capital, but will also save you stress, time and energy. And the best one would be something that would do trading for you - 24/7, therefore something that would be making you money even when you sleep.

Not every forex trading system does all of that but probably the most important benefit of using an automated forex system is that it can trade 24/7 and can do that without any emotions. That's something that no human can do!

So what to look for in an automated forex trading system? I recommend that you seek a next-generation automated forex system. Look for trading software that uses not only Fibonacci tools and the commonly known indicators, such as: MACD, RSI, stochastics, oscillators, Bollinger bands, etc. Systems that use only them are obsolete. You should be using an automated forex system that applies not only mathematical algorithms, but also principles from a variety of progressive scientific theories, such as: Quantum Mechanics, Chaos Theory, Fractal Geometry and Wavelet Theory.

Look for a system that uses synergistic combination of those sciences to determine the direction in which the market is going and to provide you with the signals that will give you short- and long-term profits. With a top-class automated forex system, you should be able to profit from both short-term and long-term currency moves - at any time (24/7) and with any currency pair. It should be flexible enough to adapt to your unique trading style and to unique characteristics of trading, as they are different for each currency pair, for various time frames. It should be able to assist you in various types of forex trading, such as position trading, intra-day swing trading, trading the news, etc. And it should help you properly manage your trading capital - important role, which often decides if a trader enjoys making profit in long run, or not. Your perfect automated forex system should deliver objective means of filtering out questionable signals and it should accurately identify areas of major and intermediate support and resistance. It should be able to help you set and achieve realistic profit targets for maximum gain, with low risk of loss - it should be able to determine proper stop loss placements and to tell you how to exit the trade if your profit target is not hit.

Those technical aspects of the perfect system are very important as is the ability to deal with the money management, but a perfect, completely automated trading system should also be able to eliminate trader's emotions from the trading. Well, computers don't think, so it should be easy, isn't it? When making a final decision about getting your next forex trading system, ask this question - after the initial set-up, will the system require anything more from me than making sure that my computer is on? With the best systems, after you decide what pairs to trade, in what time frames and what your profit/loss settings are, all you have to do is just ensuring that your Internet is working.

          Finding Your Perfect Automated Forex System   
Would you like to be able to trade forex on autopilot? Would you like to use robot to do the trading for you? To do tasks like finding profitable trades and executing them - even when you sleep?

Well, in the computer and Internet era it's relatively easy and almost every week we see a new automated forex trading system being offered to the general public. Some of them cost under $100, but there are also much more expensive programs - with prices in the $2,000 - $10,000 range. However, very often those expensive systems are sold to limited number of traders.

Why are automated forex systems in such high demand, commending such high prices? The answer is simple; it can be found among the motivating factors for the participants in any market - not only forex, but also stock and commodity trading. I'm talking here about greed, fear, desire to live pleasant life, etc. Of course, those are rather general motivations, but they really have significant impact on every trader's mindset and his or her approach to trading.

Many authors writing on the topic of trading maintain that although fundamentals such as interests rates, CPI, employment data, etc. have significant impact on how the markets move, the psychological aspect of trading is much more important. The markets are moved by the combined belief system of each individual trader (or market participant).

That's a very important concept, because it means that each trader's desires, hopes, fears, needs, opinions, experience, education, interests, motives, etc. impact the way the trader analyses the available information and makes the trading decisions based on both belief system and the information. Those decisions are about what and when to trade, how much to expect from a trade, how much to risk, when to enter and exit and whether to buy or sell. Those decisions made by each trader are transformed into orders - that's how the markets, including forex market, move.

It's a very interesting process, isn't it? And the implications are far-reaching, because if we accept it, it means that we can't consider markets as linear systems that could be analyzed with tools that are based on linear mathematics and statistics. And as so much of the movement of the markets is determined by the psychology of trading, it is obvious that in order to explain that movement, it is necessary to use non-linear systems (models). Also, inter-disciplinary approach is needed, as only in that way it is possible to follow the markets.

With such a powerful tool as a computer, it is possible now to build much more complicated models than those created before the computers became available. Those models and the results of using them are developed by the software programmers into trading systems. There are automated forex trading systems that incorporate breakthrough discoveries from emerging progressive sciences, such as: Quantum Mechanics, Chaos Theory, Fractal Geometry and Wavelet Theory.

Forex market is best suited for such inter-disciplinary approach due to its huge trading volume - many times bigger than that of the stock market and the futures market. When those advanced sciences are used to create trading systems, it results in more accurate and thus more profitable trading signals.

So next time, when looking for an automated system for your forex trading, consider spending extra dollars to purchase a system that employs non-linear theories and tools. Analyses provided by such a system will be much more accurate than those based on out-dated linear theories, which can only tweak historical data to fit the model. And you will get a system that more closely fits your trading style.

Final quilts measure 62" x 86" and 36" x 50".


          Heavy Metal   
Start the spring season with healthy, beautiful hair by treating your tresses with Oribe’s newest product innovation, Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil. In honor of our inaugural oil launch, we asked four of our favorite jewelry and accessory designers for their philosophy on the precious metal, their top gilded picks and what to rock them with this season.

This week, we’re featuring New York-based jewelry designer Chris Habana, who is known for designing bold, statement-making pieces donned by fashion icons like Nikki Minaj, Justin Bieber, and Parker Posey and graced the pages of V Magazine, Elle, i-D and Dazed and Confused. We asked the talented designer to give us a lesson in wearing gold jewelry the Chris Habana way—bold and fearless—and his thoughts on what sets it apart from the other metals.


What draws you to designing jewelry?


I appreciate designing jewelry because I can translate my ideas and themes into pieces that are layered, bold and provocative. However, due to their scale, they are still wearable. I get to make sculptural pieces that fit on someone’s ear, finger or neck.

What are your top three must-have gold pieces from your collection? Why?


The Cage Finger Brace, Fractal Skull Ring and Fractal Nose/Ear Cuff. These pieces are great because they bear my signature sculptural style and challenge customers to think twice about the traditional notion of what jewelry should be. The plating on the Fractal pieces look like liquid gold too, which I love.

What do you suggest wearing gold accessories with?


I am all about mixing and layering. Every piece from my collection is designed to work with every other piece.

What sets gold apart from other metals in your eyes?


Gold is definitely more regal than wearing something in black or silver tones. A piece set in gold elevates the design by its connotation.

In your opinion, how does wearing gold make people feel?


The opulence of gold makes wearing it feel special.

How would you recommend wearing gold as a guy?


I don't necessarily think in terms of men's vs. women's. Boys and girls should be able to wear whatever they want…and wear as much gold as possible!

How would you describe the Chris Habana guy or girl?


The Chris Habana customer is comfortable being on the outside of a dance circle but will always start the party off no matter what. Just make sure they don't crash into you.

How would the Chris Habana customer wear their hair on a date?


The Chris Habana girl would definitely add some pink tips—but she'll shave her head the day after.

          Living without a laptop   

Originally posted on: http://kellydjones.com/archive/2013/04/21/152760.aspx

Due to my job change, I'm getting the "opportunity" to re-evaluate my computing needs at home. This is because I've had a company laptop since I first started consulting back in 2004.

Most recently, I had an awesome laptop from work (Cardinal Solutions). It was a Dell Precision M6400 (I think) with an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, a separate video card, two SSDs for storage, and a 15in screen with a high resolution (I think it was 1080p or better). All of this power was needed when I was running SharePoint Virtual Machines (or Outlook – for those of you using Outlook, you know what I mean). Just an awesomely powerful computer.

It was my primary computer both at work and at home, since I'd use it for work/home email, web browsing, etc.

So, once I knew I'd be returning it, I started thinking about its replacement. I already had a desktop at my new job and I might request a laptop, but I knew I wasn't going to be using the work laptop as much as I had the other one.

First things first, I thought about what I already had at home. I have a Windows server (custom built using typical workstation hardware) that I use for general file storage, running Virtual Machines with Hyper-V, media server (for the Xbox's and TVs in the house), and some network services (DNS, DHCP). I built this box to have lots of storage with moderate CPU power. It has five hard drives in it, that total 7TB of storage (but with RAID mirroring, I think the available storage is 4 TB). It also has several strong, loud fans in it, but since this sits in a closet I don't have to hear it.

We also have a Mac Mini (early 2009) that is my wife's primary computer. It is in the kitchen at her desk and she uses it for email/web browsing, plus tracking our finances in Quicken. We also have over a decade's worth of photos and music on it (iPhoto and iTunes). We're often both using computers at the same time, so sharing a computer wouldn't work.

We have a Lenovo Ideapad (Pentium B940) that we bought two years ago. It was going to be my main computer at home, but the kids soon discovered how cool it was and I found the screen resolution small (720p) when compared to my work laptop. The kids use it a lot, so my daughter was especially fearful once I explained that I had to return my work laptop. Again, sharing it would not work well.

One other piece of hardware we have is a Microsoft Surface RT. It's mine, but I let the kids use it every now and then. I take it to work daily and use it in meetings, which it is great for. The small size, the touch screen, the type cover – great. I'm a heavy OneNote user, so I have it on the Surface as well as my work laptop and the notes sync between the two.

Since I have the Surface, I got to wondering if I really still needed a powerful mobile computer (laptop). As a consultant, I often needed to spin up demos on Virtual Machines, but I don't need to do that anymore. Nor do I need to have a good computer ready for when the client doesn't have a machine for me.

SO, after much thinking I decided to build a desktop computer for my own use. I built a machine that has much more power than if I had spent the same amount of money on a laptop. I also get the ability to upgrade any piece of it I need to over the next few years, pretty much the opposite of a laptop (I only ever upgraded RAM and hard drives in a laptop).

I did a bunch of research (Tom's Hardware guide) and bought the following:

  • AMD A8-5500 Trinity 3.2GHz Quad-Core APU (CPU + GPU)
  • ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 motherboard
  • Corsair XMS3 8GB DDR3 1600 RAM
  • Samsung 840 Series 120GB SATA III SSD
  • Fractal Design Define R4 Mid Tower Case
  • Rosewill Fortress Series 550W power supply
  • ViewSonic 23" LED monitor
  • Logitech wireless keyboard
  • Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000

One of my design goals was to have a quiet computer, since it'll be sitting in my office and not in a closet. I also wanted a moderately powerful computer that I could upgrade, so I went middle of the road on CPU, but picked a newer design/socket so I can still get upgrades later.

The case and power supply were a little more than I would normally pay, but that was the trade off to get a quiet computer – the case has sound dampening styrofoam and the power supply is highly energy efficient (so I don't need loud fans running to cool it down).

When it came to the processor, I am probably just sentimental about AMD. I do think you get more power per dollar from them, on the low end. If my budget was larger, I would have gone with an Intel Core i7.

I made a huge trade off when it came to storage – only 120GB (our low end Lenovo laptop has 500GB), but I wanted the speed of a solid state drive (SSD). Not just any SSD, but these new Samsung 840 series drives, that have incredible IOP numbers. One of the first upgrades I'll do is probably add something like a 2 or 3TB standard hard drive, but for the OS, I wanted an SSD.

I ordered almost everything from Newegg and put it all together a couple of days ago. So far, I like it. I may miss having a laptop in the future, but for now I'm good.


          JSR 292 server compiler support in JDK 7 b80   

About two weeks ago I pushed the remaining changes (6894206, 6893081, 6829187, 6893268) for C2 invokedynamic support on x86 which were integrated into HotSpot 17 b07.  Meanwhile HS17b07 has been integrated into JDK 7 b80 and the latter has been released.

With two changesets John Rose pushed lately (6891770, 6914665), which have been integrated into JDK 7 b79, you can run now invokedynamic enabled programs with decent performance.  Additionally we tuned inlining heuristics a little (6912063) to be able to use inline-related switches in a product VM and to not count generated MethodHandle adapters.

And here is how it works (gwt is a simple testcase for guardWithTest):

$ java -server -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions -XX:+EnableMethodHandles -XX:+EnableInvokeDynamic gwt
370655678

You can also run JRuby benchmarks, like bench_fractal.rb which prints a nice fractal (we need to tune inlining heuristics a little to get good performance):

$ bin/jruby --server -J-Djruby.compile.invokedynamic=true -J-XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions -J-XX:+EnableMethodHandles -J-XX:+EnableInvokeDynamic -J-XX:InlineSmallCode=2500 -J-XX:MaxInlineSize=50 bench/bench_fractal.rb
Rendering
<snip>

(To see the fractal you have to try it yourself :-)

The next thing will be C1 support.  I'm currently working on it and it's almost finished.

          Twin Ports Art Beat: More July Happenings of Note   

Who was the most important artist of the 20th century? At one time, many people might have said Picasso. He generated thousands of paintings, sculptures, drawings over the course of a lifetime, playing a significant role in moving art from the representational into the modern age of expressionism, through cubism into freedom. When Picasso died in 1973, an obituary claimed he left behind 4,000 masterpieces, to which Andy Warhol quipped, "I can produce 4,000 masterpieces in one day." He was, naturally referring to the ability to screen print 4,000 copies of one of his works at his Factory.

Though both Picasso and Warhol have been accurately acknowledged as significant artists of the past century, a case could be made that Marcel Duchamp, Picasso's French contemporary, was the most important artist of the century, anticipating as he did the post-modern era.

          Yestermorrow Design Colloquium: Design Discourse for Everyone   
On Saturday, July 18, 2015 Yestermorrow held a Design Colloquium as part of its 35th Anniversary celebration. Moderated by Yestermorrow founder John Connell, the panel included John Anderson, Sibyl Harwood, Sylvia Smith, and Ted Montgomery. The goal of the panel was to "create a vocabulary and/or grammar for people not professionally trained in design."

The following thoughts were written by John Anderson in response to the opening questions. A full video of the conversation will be made available in the future.


Yestermorrow Design Colloquium – July 18, 2015

Design is both a noun and a verb and even morphs into adjective and adverb. This suggests a latent power in the concept in contrast to words and activities that are more one-dimensional. So, Design is a very rich word with metaphorical aspects and many linguistic applications.

The question is: what distinguishes it from or connects it to all of the various courses and activities and goals that define Yestermorrow.

Design as a physical and mental activity is implied in “Blue Sky” and “Out-of-the-Box” thinking. Thus, Design can be thought of as an activity that is unconventional, innovative, unusual, new, surprising, radical, imaginative, etc.

Design may emerge from dreams, fantasies, meditations, and other alternative modes of thoughts or feelings or even an epiphany.

I would suggest that Design is a unique human trait. It is pure thought, a singular idea, an abstract or isolated concept and absolutely critical to our ongoing evolution. It has no ethical, moral or spiritual requirements. It is free space in which anything goes.

Design as a necessary human activity may separate us from all other life forms that we know of. In the abstract time and space of Design we pull things out of the void, out of the unknown, out of someplace that is just vast potential. In Design space one can think ahead to the future, behind to the past and in the vanishingly quick space of the present.

All Design is…is a thought emergent from mind—invisible, evanescent, bathed in light and brand new. Every single person has—can have—thoughts uniquely their own and totally original. “I think therefore I am….unique.”

Right off the bat, here’s a concept: there is no need or logical requirement to separate Design/Build and pure Design on moral, ethical, functional, pedagogical or other sustainable grounds. Design is free space that incorporates program input. That input can be anything. Design absorbs input and gives it context, juxtaposition and reason for being. Maybe Design makes House a Home.

Design and Keeper-of-the-Concept

The designer/architect/creative person has a very important and perhaps ancient role. That role is Keeper-of-the-Concept. The Design/Build process can be a sequence of unilateral decisions made by a menagerie of well meaning specialists. Each decision might be valuable in its own right, but the sum of the parts can result in a complex or even chaotic solution with no real soul. The Keeper-of-the-Concept makes sure that everything from doorknobs to master plan stays true to the concept, the result being holistic, whole and vibrating with a secret energy.

Design helps to guarantee a (built) result that is holistic and fractal (in that each part contains the spirit and shape of the whole), and that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

While it is certainly important that a Design/Build process is sustainable in the sense that it leads to a solution that is healthy for the client, the building, the landscape and by logic- our planet, it also should end up manifesting the most creative and idealistic potential of human thought. The human thought, here meaning Design, can stand on its own—no problem—or by absorbing program input (such as permaculture) it transforms into an external reality.

It is important to note that there is no discussion here of Aesthetics, or Beauty or Truth. Perhaps all these characteristics are expected in ideas like Plato’s pure forms that shaped his view of the cosmos or Maxwell’s equations. Here, they may or may not be the outcome of someone’s response to Design or Designer, but in emergent Design they don’t matter (and, can be a distraction and false door in the Design process).

We now all inhabit and are all connected by a world wide web of communication. Consider it a global mind. We have almost infinite access to information and possibilities. Molecules can be manipulated; photovoltaic paint is soon to be possible; even invisibility in cloaking materials is coming. There is no reason why as a single synapse in a global mind, anyone of us cannot create energy efficiency in the physical world and that global sustainability is achievable.

The web also serves up ideas and concepts that travel by light speed around the globe. Pure thoughts without relation to functionality fly freely. It may be that the highest purpose of our species is to think of new things that don’t exist now or may never exist. Free will and self-awareness lead to unbounded possibilities. Technology and solutions follow ideas and concepts. The Designer must keep dreaming, pulling concepts out of nothing, comfortable in that void where anything is possible.

And what does this description of Design and the Designer suggest…Art and Artists of all kinds: painters, sculptors, composers and choreographers. Architecture is a Fine Art and Architecture as Design/Build can be Fine Art/Build along with all the program input one cares to put into it.


My wish for Yestermorrow would be for it to be the most practical and sustainable Design/Build school on the planet, and the most creative and innovation center for pure conceptual and intellectually inspired Design. Both are necessary for our collective future.

          Twin Ports Art Beat: More July Happenings of Note   

Who was the most important artist of the 20th century? At one time, many people might have said Picasso. He generated thousands of paintings, sculptures, drawings over the course of a lifetime, playing a significant role in moving art from the representational into the modern age of expressionism, through cubism into freedom. When Picasso died in 1973, an obituary claimed he left behind 4,000 masterpieces, to which Andy Warhol quipped, "I can produce 4,000 masterpieces in one day." He was, naturally referring to the ability to screen print 4,000 copies of one of his works at his Factory.

Though both Picasso and Warhol have been accurately acknowledged as significant artists of the past century, a case could be made that Marcel Duchamp, Picasso's French contemporary, was the most important artist of the century, anticipating as he did the post-modern era.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 1.9 million page views with about #3900th blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking and innovating the new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.
