Tuesday Tips SUPER WEEK - Push it!

Clarity is probably the most important thing to think about at all time when boarding. Pushing your poses to an undeniable level of clarity will improve the clarity of the storytelling in general. Don’t leave space for uncertainty in posing out your characters. Your audience will be more engaged and entertained by the sequence.

This is the last post for the Super Week. I hope you enjoyed it. Back on the regular schedule next week (Every Tuesday).

A Salad Bar for the Space Station

Freeze-dried bags of dehydrated “astronaut food” may seem like a fun novelty for school kids on Earth, but despite all the hard work that goes into providing the residents of the Space Station with nutritious and varied meal options there’s one thing that remains a rare and elusive commodity on astronauts’ menus: fresh produce.

Although fruit and vegetables do occasionally find their way aboard the ISS via resupply missions (to the delight of the crew) researchers are moving one step closer to actually having a vegetable garden in orbit. On Monday, April 14, NASA’s Veg-01 experiment will launch to the ISS aboard a SpaceX Dragon capsule to test the in-flight viability of an expandable plant growth chamber named “Veggie.”

In development for several years, Veggie is now getting its chance to be space-tested with the launch of the SpaceX-3 resupply mission. Veggie uses clear collapsible “pillows” as miniature greenhouses, inside which plants can be grown with the aid of root-mats and a bank of LED lights.

Astronauts will see how well “Outredgeous” romaine lettuce fares in microgravity inside the Veg-01 experiment, and can also use the LED bank as a light source for other experiments.

“Veggie will provide a new resource for U.S. astronauts and researchers as we begin to develop the capabilities of growing fresh produce and other large plants on the space station,” said Gioia Massa, the NASA payload scientist for Veggie.

“Determining food safety is one of our primary goals for this validation test.”

While other plant-growth experiments are currently aboard ISS, Veggie boasts the simplest design and largest growing area of any of them to date.

With the ultimate success of Veggie, ISS astronauts may soon find themselves floating in line at the in-house salad bar. (Watch out for those rogue croutons!)

How Far We’ve Come - A Homestuck Tribute

Original: How Far We’ve Come by Matchbox 20

After 4 months of labor, we present to you our Homestuck tribute for 4/13! Thanks to everyone for their hard work and cooperation in this project—it was a huge effort to put together and it sounds like everything I would have dreamed it to be! I hope you guys enjoy it, because Homestuck has come a long way and I’m happy to be a part of its community. Cal also took 10 years off his life mixing this, so I think he needs a little love.

Lyrics:

KARKAT: Greetings, worthless human!

JOHN: Start the game, counting down til the end of the world.
ROSE: Building up to get him in; I need to write it all down.
JOHN: Gotta move, the meteors are heading straight for the house.
DAVE: It’s just so stupid that this game is really not worth the try.
ROSE: Dave, shut up, and maybe finally we’ll get out alive.
DAVE: Strifing battles, here’s your bottle, now I’ve gotta wait out this egg in time.

JADE: I can see our game will really need a spark,
JADE: The world, destroyed, take a shot into the dark,
BETAS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!
BETAS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!

VRISKA: Well I believe, with help, you’ll be a great kid.
KANAYA: If not, don’t go if the Furthest Ring bids.
TEREZI: Let’s see the stocks to trade!
KARKAT: Let’s guess the passwords made!

KARKAT: I think I heard a distant honk; fuck, I don’t really know.
SOLLUX: But everything is now okay, wow, where’d my sight go?
ERIDAN: There’s no hope left and we’ve gotta join Jack Noir.
FEFERI: I won’t tolerate and I can’t excuse you!
KANAYA: Took a chainsaw to flesh; I’m really out for blood.
GAMZEE: Motherfucking world is rotting and I’ll strike it with clubs.
TEREZI: Say a goodbye because I’m on my way to find and kill you!

TAVROS: I believe I need to show them who is boss!
ARADIA: Let’s go rejoice, paths have finally crossed.
TROLLS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!
TROLLS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!

EQUIUS: Stay, no matter what, in the vents until the end.
NEPETA: I won’t! I can’t! I will never just pretend!
TROLLS: Some lives were cruelly lost,
TROLLS: But reunite our cause.

DIRK: And they scrapped, scratched, it was all reset.
ROXY: It was another game to play for us to hack it again.
JAKE: And we were fools, used just to turn on ourselves.
JANE: Now it’s overly sweet, and time will never just tell.

DIRK: Timelines mix, match, intersect on a whim.
ROXY: Hold us hostage ‘cause you never wanted us to all win
JAKE: But we fight back, you’ll never keep us down
JANE: And when we pull all it through, we’ll be keeping that crown.

JANE+JAKE: We will see this all to the very bloody end
DIRK+ROXY: We’ll stay alive and we’ll fight for all our friends
ALPHAS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!

JANE+ROXY: We’ll win this game, you’ll see, determination is the key
JAKE+DIRK: Our hopes, our hearts, and every one of our dreams
ALPHAS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!

BETA KIDS: Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ll go
TROLLS: Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ll go
ALPHAS KIDS: Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ll go
ALL: Let’s see how far we’ve come

How Magic Rocks Work

Magic Rocks are chunks of metal salts that have been stabilized by being dispersed in aluminum hydroxide or alum. The ‘magic solution’ is a solution of sodium silicate (Na2SiO3) in water. The metal salts react with the sodium silicate to form the characteristic colored precipitant (chemical towers about 4” high).

Grow Your Own crystal garden

Magic rocks are available on the Internet and are quite inexpensive, but you can make them yourself. These are the salts used to make magic rocks. Some of the colorants are readily available; most require access to a general chemistry lab (consult MSDS for each).
White - calcium chloride (found on the laundry aisle of some stores)
White - lead (II) nitrate
Purple - manganese (II) chloride
Blue - copper (II) sulfate (common chemistry lab chemical, also used for aquaria and as an algicide for pools)
Red - cobalt (II) chloride
Pink - manganese (II) chloride
Orange - iron (III) chloride
Yellow - iron (III) chloride
Green - nickel (II) nitrate

Dutch Architects 3-D Printing Canal House

A team in Amsterdam is working to 3-D print the classic Dutch canal house, a project that marries the city’s traditional architecture with state-of-the-art additive manufacturing.

Their effort is more than a study in futuristic design and building—they’ve got their sights on very real global issues that are set to mount in coming years.

"For the first time in history, over half the world’s population is living in cities," says Hans Vermeulen, a cofounder of the 3-D Print Canal House project. “We need a rapid building technique to keep up the pace with the growth of megacities and we thing 3-D printing can actually be the technique to provide good housing for the billions of people on this planet.”
