Protest of mirrors held to commemorate Nov. 30 police beating of demonstrators

At noon on Dec. 30, protesters in central Kyiv held mirrors in front of police for 30 minutes to commemorate the night of Nov. 30 when riot police used excessive force to breakup a peaceful rally on Independence Square consisting mostly of university students.

In a gesture to remind the police of their violent actions that memorable night, EuroMaidan demonstrators lined up with mirrors to show law enforcement personnel their reflections. The civic demonstration took place near walkways and streets that lead to the government building district where police have been stationed. The buildings include the president’s headquarters, Cabinet of Ministers and central bank, among others.

UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman: I Was Extremely Bullied, Was Hospitalized As Child.

This one goes for all those bullied in their youth, stay strong and heed the wise words of Chris Weidman.  Ossu.

Bobby Razak profiles UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman in the latest of his “Vérité” series.

“I grew up in a decently tough neighborhood,” says Weidman as transcribed by MMAFighting. “I grew up getting bullied and fighting a lot. My brother was probably one of the toughest kids from my neighborhood and he didn’t make it easy on me. He made sure I was getting beat up as much as possible growing up. If he wasn’t beating me up, he was making his friends beat me up. He threw a 10 pound weight on my head because I wouldn’t get him a cookie. Split my forehead open pretty good.”

“I think any type of setback you have, any tough time you’ve got, getting through it is what makes you who you are.

A Montana man, Ernie Tertelgte appeared in court for fishing without a license and resiting arrests. Tertelgte told the judge “I am a living man protected by natural law and I have the right to forage for food when I am hungry… You are trying to create a fictitious, fraudulent action.”

Tertelgte told the judge, “those men (the arresting officers) were charged by me right back by staging an overthrow of the Constitution of 1789, and the overthrow  Bill of Rights, and overthrow of my rights to forage for food as a natural living person who was in hunger. I was searching for something to put in my stomach as I am recognized to be allowed to by universal law… They violated everything.”

Someone once said comets are like cats — they have tails and they do what they want. As of this writing (late Nov. 2013) it appears that Comet Ison has not survived its close passage around the Sun intact and will not, therefore, provide the hoped for celestial display that might inspire folks other than astronomers to take a deeper interest in cosmic events. This is not to say that important knowledge will not be gleaned from its demise, but it is disappointing nonetheless. What we have seen is a comet in the final stages of its life cycle, disintegrating into a stream of cosmic dust and boulders.… Read the rest

Golden Ratio On Film: The Math In There Will Be Blood’s Cinematography

Via i09 Ali Shirazi explores the geometry of Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood, finding the golden spirals, examples of the Rule of Thirds, and tracking shot mathematics describing the film’s cinematography.

This is the first in what will be a series of films exploring Anderson’s directing style. It’s a fascinating watch, and it would be interesting to see Shirazi apply similar studies to other directors, examining the math that can be found in the art of filmmaking. Edit: And to see whether his analysis differs with different directors, or if this is just, as many commenters have suggested, an example of golden ratio pareidolia.
