Mercury, a key element? (1/x)

Perhaps you might not yet be familiar with the (al)chemical and rather magical properties of Mercury, so before we get into Red Mercury let’s
have a look at regular Mercury.

>Only metallic element that’s liquid at room temperature
>Extremely dense
>Still used in electrical apparatus
>Found in nature as Cinnabar
>Cinnabar is either red or black
>Mercury amalgamates with almost all metals
>Doesn’t merge with iron,

Here’s an interesting problem regarding the #aesthetics in reproduction of #digital #image|s. (Interesting to me, at least, and also, maybe, to people like @_menkman, @jbirken, @Sierra_Offline, @kevindriscoll and @GIFmodel). 1/38
What I’ll say is true for all digital images, in a way. (And more generally, for all works of art.) But I want to focus on one type of images and on one set of aesthetic qualities in particular here. 2/38
The problem that’s bothering me is this: What is the proper way to show an early digital #screen image in #print? (Reproduced as a figure in an academic monograph, for example.) 3/38

New preprint:
"Compression ensembles quantify aesthetic complexity and the evolution of visual art" 🎨🖼️📈
by @AndresKarjus @schichmax @sebastianahnert @mcanet @tillmannohm
1/🧵 Image
2/7 How does it work? Take an image, run it through a large n of visual filters (blur, gray, edges, etc), compress the variants, record file sizes. Yields a vector where each value expresses some aspect of visual aesthetics, resulting in an explainable vector space. Simple&fast! Image
3/7 But does it... work? Test against human vis complexity ratings: correlates very well &outperforms plain compression. Also designed downstream tasks such as author identification: also works quite well. Again, no #deeplearning or pretrained models here, just image compression! Image

Will images and projections from #Science replace all need for personal experimentation, as we end up seeing all the obscure processes of our consciousness, clearly & lucidly outside of us? Will this conjunction of #art and science lead to new types of...
...lucidity, a clear-headed thinking, where altered consciousness will be viewed with aesthetic fascination, rather than with compulsive physiological dependency? We will continue to see what was so far invisible.
#aesthetics #image #future
Example: Art and science venture, Sensescapes, creates an exhibition #Space with projected light and immersive music created from brain data of people in altered states.

I'm very grateful to David Polizzi @indianastate for hosting a symposium on A Criminology of Narrative Fiction in the Journal of Theoretical & Philosophical Criminology (JTPCRIM) later this year. #criminology #philosophy #zemiology #aesthetics…
David was the first to publish my research on the criminological values of fiction and JTPCRIM is a repository of 12 years' worth of interesting and innovative #openaccess articles.
I'll be joined by colleagues from @uOttawa, @warwickuni, @QMUL, and @SussexUni in the symposium, across the disciplines of #criminology, #philosophy, and #filmstudies.

How did the inspiration of @_SocialSX come into fruition?

"A cloud based social media platform to connect people with healthcare providers around the world".

The story 🧵
It all started with 200lbs lost, 11+ surgeries, health issues and community.

I could not find any information on any platform and when I did I had to go get user insights in real time. Having users everyday people be support was 100% better then the provider insight.
So Social SX was created and the community grew taking over the platform for Healthcare resources and information.. and best thing about it?? They NEVER had to leave the group for anything. Everything was in one place at the click of a button.

El trabajo con el que voy a inaugurar la cuenta es uno llamado Ebora Wave, que son una serie de seis fotografías de arquitectura de Talavera de la Reina editadas con la estética del vaporwave y synthwave, en este tuit subiré una pequeña animación glitch que hice con el logo.

Rajjab Mahal, Oval, 1936 - The curious case of the mullion & transom . Architects of that time took ownership for the overall design sensibility of the building. Apart from the facade, common spaces like the compound, compound walls, staircases, lobby, grilles, flooring, ImageImageImageImage
balconies and windows exhibited a harmonious aesthetic reflected through similar patterns, materials or the use of colours, all subtly pleasing to the eye. The diagonal mullion and horizontal transom in the stunning windows at Rajjab are a great example. They serve no purpose of
supporting the window frame but hold the glass panes in place. It's a visual element thoughtfully put in place by architect Merwanji Bana & Co. in consonance with the design patterns on the facade. Did you know that already? Sliding aluminium windows anyone?

I was thinking. There's probably a lot of #writers that really want to get involved in the #WritingCommunity , but maybe don't know how or feel a little lost. So I decided to create a little guide on Book Twitter to go over the basics for anyone who needs it! A thread.
Common writing age-group acronyms:
MG = Middle Grade
YA = Young Adult
NA = New Adult (you may see a little conflict over this topic, so be wary. To quickly summarize, it's an age group between YA and A that typically depicts people between 18 - 30)
A = Adult
Common writing terms:
Beta Reader = Someone who reads and gives you feedback on the early drafts of your story. They read bc they enjoy.
CP/Critique Partner = A partnership where you read their story and they read yours for feedback.
1st, 2nd (X)st draft = stages of editing

In a Design System Manager (#DSM), change in master files reflects change in many pages in many application all across the service ecosystem. Sometimes change in a certain UI element (a button, a dropdown, a label) may become unnoticeable w.r.t. the background color and
texture in a certain page of a certain application. One of the reason could be mismatch in contrast ratio. Now the implication of change in master file could be spread across 1000 files in the hierarchy. These files could belong to different application
with their own access control and permission. It is impossible to check each file one by one. The design system should be intelligent enough to inform the respective #UX teams about the change in master file and also the aesthetic disorders it have created.
