La chapelle Sixtine, du nom de son concepteur le pape "sixte" IV, se trouve sur la colline du Vatican (en face des "7 collines de Rome") où, au 1er s, un cirque présentait des courses de chars et voyait des chrétiens persécutés (dont selon la tradition, l'apôtre Pierre lui-même).
Le neveu de Sixte IV, Jules II, était un pape guerrier, toujours prêt à partir se battre pour son territoire, ce qui lui valu les surnoms de "pape-soldat" ou encore "Jules César II". On dit "qu'il préférait les bruits de canons à la prière".
C'est lui qui engagea Michel-Ange.

#INSPIRATION: Can't talk about #ALIEN the movie without crediting one of the most underrated designer giant in the field: Ron Cobb. His influence in the mechanical design and overall aesthetic is immense and go way beyond the movie itself.
more of Ron Cobb designs for the Nostromo
you can start to recognize some of the shapes lines of the Nostromo here, the cramped cockpit design, or the bow window where ash supervises the expedition.

Why is Jewish deicide Antisemitic? Because Christians blame Jews. But why?Pharisees tried to kill Jesus on several occasions by the orthodox Jewish method of stoning. Sadducees were willing to accomplish it through their political union with the Roman power. #Occult #QAnon

Kicking off my #aashtoAM tweeting with a few relevant tweets from #WalkBikePlaces below. And really, you should just go look at that whole thread if you work in transportation.
Taking @RelayBikeShare in Atlanta bike infrastructure. Raised path an interesting experience--I like it. Celebratory 100-mile marker a nice touch--recognizes progress. #AASHTOam #infrastructure #BIKES TO #bikeshare

#History/#Art thread – From my recent trip to Madurai/Tirunelveli. On Jain sites (some with a rich history dating back to at least the 3rd cent. BCE), early Pandyan rock-cut cave temples (7th-8th cent. CE) & the amazing Vettuvan koil.

Pic: Mahavira (~8 cent CE), Kizhakuyilkudi
Before I start on the places, the history around all this is fascinating & splits opinion. Is it apt to call the script Tamili/Tamil Brahmi? Did it develop independently in the Tamil country/come with the Jain monks from the north? Were 8,000 Jains actually impaled in Madurai?>
>Were the Saivites overaggressive in promoting their faith? Shall only be happy to discuss on these separately (unless it gets too long/irrational). And I’m not posting every inscription from the places here, despite their importance. Again, shall be happy to discuss them.

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

Doing some Bengus studies (oh man this is HARD lol)! Let me share some learnings with you! ...
#Darkstalkers #Art #MasterStudy #StudyStudyStudyStudy
Something that Bengus does really well is that he primarily uses straight lines to convey everything. He rarely uses curved lines. Every line has a strong sense of direction that conveys the underlying mass. That's why his linework is so DIMENSIONAL.
#Darkstalkers #Art
Look at what happens when I copy Lord Raptor's face using a lot of curves. The drawing feels much flatter because the curves don't have a strong sense of direction. They seem to only move along the X and Y axis without conveying depth. They're ambiguos, unconfident.

The #FBI is turning 110! Follow along as we remember 11 decades in 11 days. Today we will highlight some of our milestones and significant cases from the early 2000s. #FBI110
In 2000 the #FBI's first Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory opened in San Diego. Today RCFLs across the country provide law enforcement agencies with technical support and training in support of criminal investigations. #FBI110 rcfl.gov
In 2001, following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the #FBI dedicated 7,000 of its 11,000 Special Agents and thousands of support personnel to the PENTTBOM investigation. It remains the largest investigation in FBI #history. #FBI110 ow.ly/6tFt30l6Z8R

Arguments that #libraries are beneficial really don't have anything to do with the #consent argument against #taxation, so they are really quite uninteresting, and not at all even an argumentative response to the good professor. That being said, it's important to understand…
#Libraries are terribly underfunded, when they should be a top priority for civic spending. It is not inconsistent to be pro library funding and con taxation, if you argue for a #noncoercive yet still #compulsory financing source, i.e. Just Rent #LVT. Most libraries cannot…
accept donated books, because they simply cannot afford the staff and infrastructure required to preserve and maintain an ever-growing stock of physical texts. #Libraries must therefore concentrate on what items #librarians deem important or popular in their community. …

"The 25 points of the NSDAP Program were composed by Adolf Hitler and Anton Drexler. They were publically presented on 24 February 1920 "to a crowd of almost 2K and every single point was accepted amid jubilant approval." (Mein Kampf, Volume II, Chapter I)

I have some #NewYearsResolutions to share.

You all know I don't use foul language on here, but this iconic warrior trope seems a good place to start 2018.
1/
I've spent 3yrs reporting on Trump's every egregious move. I'll still be doing that in 2018, but I'll also be focusing on women running for office.

Traditionally women have received less/worse coverage than men. That must change. Only news orgs/reporters can change this.

One of my #NewYearsResolutions
is to beat back #cancer.

In 2017 I didn't prioritize my time within the possibility of my death hovering. I must do that in 2018 and I would urge EVERYONE to live more like you have limited time rather than limitless time.

Focus, act, #resist.
