🍵HUNTING FIREFLIES✨

Each year Shimogamo-jinja (下鴨神社) holds a special tea gathering called 'Hotarubi-no-Chakai' (蛍火の茶会). Over 600 fireflies are released beside the Mitarashi-gawa (御手洗川) as evening falls, bringing an otherworldly feel to the tea ceremony.
#Japan
What better way to celebrate firefly season than with Kameya Yoshinaga's (亀屋良長) cooling 'hotaru-no-yoru' (蛍の夜 'evening fireflies').
The sweet is a type of 'kingyoku' (錦玉), a jelly made from boiling agar and sugar...particularly popular in summer.

#京都
In the traditional calendar June 11th-15th is known as 'kusaretaru kusa hotaru to naru' (腐草為螢), 'rotten grass becomes fireflies'. There was a belief, imported from the mainland, that fireflies were born from grass decaying in the humid early summer heat.

Been rewatching Korra (or, trying to) while working on my own writing and have been reminded of my 10 Things I'd Fix exercise. Figure now's a good a time as any to share it.
*Obligatory: The Network did not support the show and many problems are linked to this. 1/
10. Focus on the Sports or Cut the Sports. Pick One.
TLoK was Fantastic Beasts before Fantastic Beasts. Both struggle with tone and a kind of self-consciousness at its own tone. Korra aimed to be a darker, more violent series, but also wanted to keep light and fun. Probending 2/
was something the team was passionate, as it showcased interesting bending without relying on battles for the fate of the world. As the show progressed, Probending faded into the background, but I always found it a good character device for Korra, as she's a competitive sort 3/

I think we all agree that #IOTA / IF is doing great stuff but let's not underestimate the role of #Firefly on this journey. They've got so many great things in the pipeline🤯
Just listened to the 7th episode of @MoonacoPodcast with @c_varley . I'll try my best to summarize...

* Voting mechanism out of Firefly:
this mechanism will be used further than deceiding what to do with the unclaimed tokens from the beginnings of IOTA. But in a way where u can't simply buy bags of MIOTA, vote for ur option and than sell & leave. The longer u stay at your...

Firefly will (almost obviously) support #ASMB and #SMR and there will be additional "staking" opportunities shortly after...

Let's take a trip through the major releases on the @iota network since #chrysalis this April. 🧵(1/13)
Their brand new wallet, #Firefly, was released on April 21 in preparation for the token migration to the new #chrysalis network (#IOTA 1.0 -> #IOTA 1.5). (2/13)
firefly.iota.org
Then the #chrysalis network (1.5) went live on April 28. The coordinator is still active, but this sets the stage for #coordicide (#IOTA 2.0) in the future. (3/13) blog.iota.org/the-new-chrysa…

(1/15) The #Coordicide project at #IOTA is naturally an important milestone that will need to be delivered. But too often other progress on IOTA is overlooked. There are soo many pieces that together form the vision of IOTA. Let's have a look what my colleagues are working on!
(2/15) The #IOTA Engineering department has 9 different projects: #Bee, #Hornet, #Chronicle, #Firefly, #Client Libraries, #SmartContracts, #Identity, #Streams and #Stronghold. It also maintains our websites, the coordinator and nodes.
(3/15) In those projects, #Bee, #Hornet and #Chronicle directly build out the first layer of #IOTA. Implementing new features to the first layer for updates like #Chrysalis and #Coordicide.

On #InternationalWomensDay we'd like to pause and celebrate just a small slice of the enormous contributions to science women have made here at SFI.

Read the thread below for links to some of their own favorite research papers, and a few nominated by other SFI faculty members:
First off, these papers on #FoodWebs led by our VP for #Science, Jennifer Dunne:

Pre-print alert! ״Self-organization in natural #swarms of Photinus carolinus #synchronous #fireflies

How many fireflies does it take to synchronize a swarm in its natural habitat? And how fast does the burst propagate throughout the swarm?

🧵1/7 Fireflies at the Great Smoky Mountains
2/7 Fireflies flashing in unison is not just a mesmerizing manifestation of animal collective behavior… but also a landmark example of biological synchrony.

We recently developed a method to record the 3D spatiotemporal pattern of their flashes

3/7 To understand the synchronization mechanisms and inform theoretical models, we apply our method on the collective display of thousands of Photinus carolinus fireflies, this time, in their natural habitat!

#Firefly has a special place in my heart—my favourite SF thing in the last 20 years, and I’m incredibly grateful that @boomstudios let me work on these books. @danmcdaid & the other amazing artists have breathed life into @gregpak’s brilliant scripts, and I’m having SO much fun.
I mean, SERIOUSLY, I’m a fan who got to work on these books. So many of these spin-off/licenses titles just don’t *feel* right, but @boomstudios’s Firefly stuff really does. Buy these books or by my pretty not-floral bonnet, I *will* end yiu.
Trust me — no one who looks like this would steer you wrong on the subject of SF westerns…

So... been thinking a lot about all the beautiful scripts out there that will never seen the light of day. The stillborn and the misbegotten. They'll never be filmed. They're just paper now. How would you like to read one?
Tell you what... I'm going to post my failed Syfy pilot Defender here, one page at a time, for the next 95 days. It's got starships and sword fights, space battles and ballroom dancing. And yes, some kissing.
NOTE: 1. I changed the title (& ship name) back to MORNINGSTAR. I only renamed it DEFENDER because of a network note & I like MORNINGSTAR better. 2. This script was work for hire & is (I think) property of UCP. But per WGA rules, I retain publishing rights. So there's that.
