Blue Tears and the Milky Way


Lapping at rocks along the shore of the Island of Nangan, Taiwan, planet Earth, waves are infused with a subtle blue light in this sea and night skyscape. Composed of a series of long exposures made on April 16 the image captures the faint glow from Noctiluca scintillans. Also known as sea sparkles or blue tears, the marine plankton's bioluminescence is stimulated by wave motion. City lights along the coast of mainland China shine beneath low clouds in the west but stars and the faint Milky Way still fill the night above. Over the horizon the galaxy's central bulge and dark rifts seem to echo the rocks and luminous waves.

hayley566:

movie:

Marvel Comics’ ‘All New X-Men’ will reveal – and retcon – Iceman (Bobby Drake) as a gay character. How will fans react? More movie news

I’d be happy about this if they didn’t reveal it by having a straight psychic girl read his mind, out him and then spout biphobic bullshit.

I don’t mind iceman being gay, I mind Jean Grey being a nosy, biphobic bitch and using the term “full gay”, like bisexuality is “half gay, half straight” when it isn’t. It’s a sexuality in itself.

More disgusting is Bendis, a straight man, telling bisexuals that they are being biphobic for calling him out on this. Bisexuals, people who are constantly on the recieving end of biphobia being called biphobic by a heterosexual for calling out his biphobic bullshit.

Do I really need to explain what’s wrong with that?

Aeroporto Internacional de Denver


O Aeroporto Internacional de Denver localiza-se no Colorado, EUA. Foi construído em 1995 e desde então que qualquer um dos seus visitantes nota algo de estranho em volta do sítio em que se encontra.

Em todos os cantos se encontram pinturas macabras, esculturas de gárgulas e uma estátua de um cavalo azul de olhos vermelhos brilhantes, semelhante ao cavalo do Apocalipse que é citado pela Bíblia. Além disso, existe um lugar que alega que tem algo guardado que só abrirá em 2094.
Para tornar tudo mais misterioso, o aeroporto foi construído de uma maneira exagerada, como se pretendesse abrigar algo titânico. Inicialmente, o orçamento era de 1,7 biliões de dólares, mas o custo final foi de 4,6 biliões, quase três vezes superior ao valor planeado. Estes números enormes e as estruturas gigantescas fizeram com que muitas pessoas pensassem que o aeroporto tivesse uma base militar secreta e outros dizem que é uma instalação governamental que guarda extraterrestres e OVNIs. Certamente, é algo muito maior do que um aeroporto e esconde algo muito misterioso.



Tudo começa a ficar medonho assim que se entra na área do aeroporto. É possível deparar-se com uma escultura feita por Luis Jimenez de uma cavalo azul de dez metros com olhos que brilham em vermelho. Dizem que essa estátua é amaldiçoada, pois uma das suas peças caiu e matou Luis, que não resistiu aos ferimentos.


corner-stone

No salão principal do aeroporto, existe uma pedra quadrilátera que possui um texto gravado nela, que se refere a uma nova ordem mundial. O texto refere que a pedra só se abrirá em 2094 e o conteúdo guardado na pedra é totalmente desconhecido.


runways-300x300

As pistas têm a forma de uma suástica. É praticamente impossível que os construtores não tenham notado no formato das pistas durante a sua edificação. Além disso, é estranho que elas não tenham sido reformuladas, tal como aconteceu com muitos outros edifícios, que tiveram o seu aspeto mudado, de modo a não lembrarem o símbolo nazi.


532652815_cf16f68ec4-225x300

Existem estátuas de gárgulas por todo o interior do aeroporto, como servissem de guardiões que vigiam as pessoas que por lá passam. Aparentemente, não têm nenhuma função específica, para além de completar o visual obscuro do aeroporto.


89884022_4a0f6dce7f1

Esta pintura pretende representar a Mãe Terra, mas se a observarmos com mais atenção, é possível notar que ela parece uma representação de seres extraterrestres. Aparecem umas caras estranhas a observar a Terra do topo e a representação desta assemelha-se a uma criatura bastante bizarra de traços pouco comuns.


Em quatro paredes do aeroporto, encontram-se pinturas que pretendem representar a paz e a harmonia na Terra, porém, parecem revelar uma profecia caótica e sinistra, onde uma Nova Ordem Mundial se apoderá se tudo:

1stmural

Este quadro chama-se "Paz e Harmonia com a Natureza". Parece mentira, porque se vêm crianças que estão, aparentemente, a chorar pela morte de animais. É possível observar-se animais enjaulados e mortos e uma floresta a arder. Mais em baixo, encontram-se três caixões, cada um deles com uma pessoa diferente, como se o quadro quisesse revelar que, no futuro, estas raças/etnias representadas irão desaparecer. Dá para ver duas pessoas negras (provavelmente uma originária de África e outra do Oriente) e um asiático (julgo).



''Crianças do Mundo do Sonho de Paz'' é o nome deste quadro que, ao contrário do que o título sugere, revela uma realidade obscura: várias crianças carregam armas, junto com as bandeiras dos seus países de origem. Estranhamente, as armas estão a ser oferecidas a uma criança alemã. O quadro possui uma continuação:



Neste quadro, aparece um soldado nazista (nota-se pelo símbolo no chapéu), com uma espingarda numa mão e uma espada na outra, que está a atacar uma pomba branca, ou seja, a paz. Em volta, encontram-se defuntos, pessoas amedrontadas, prédios em ruínas e uma carta de Hama Herchenberg, um adolescente de 14 anos que morreu no campo de concentração de Auschwitz.




''Harmonia com a Natureza'' é o nome deste quadro. Parece mostrar a tal Nova Ordem Mundial referida, ''inocentemente'' ao longo da postagem. Aparentemente, tudo voltou ao normal e as pessoas e animais que estavam mortos/tristes parecem ter renascido e mostram-se felizes.
Todas estas mensagens subliminares nos quadros do aeroporto devem querer mostrar que, no futuro, o nosso mundo será comandado pelos nazis e que uma nova ordem mundial será imposta por eles.


A pergunta é: o que será que o aeroporto esconde? Talvez apenas em 2094 se venha a descobrir.

Congo Monkey Spotted Decades After Species’ Alleged Demise

Welcome back, Bouvier’s red colobus monkey. It’s been a while.

The African primate hasn’t been seen since the 1970s and was assumed to have become extinct.

But, in a statement released late last week, the Wildlife Conservation Society says two primatologists working in the forests of the Republic of Congo were successful in a quest begun in February to confirm reports that Bouvier’s is still out there. They returned with a first-ever snapshot of a mother and infant.

“Our photos are the world’s first and confirm that the species is not extinct,” Lieven Devreese, one of the field researchers, was quoted in the WCS statement as saying.

A group of men who saw a young woman being strangled and punched in her car say they were so angry they had no qualms about chasing the attacker - a man they caught and restrained until police arrived.

The eight Auckland men are now being hailed as heroes after interrupting the attack on the young waitress as she stopped in her car at a set of lights on Great North Rd, New Lynn on Wednesday night.

April 24th 1915: Armenian Genocide begins

On this day in 1915, the mass murder of Armenians by the Turkish government began in the Ottoman Empire with the mass arrest of hundreds of Armenian intellectuals. The Ottoman leadership, who were Muslim, had long subjected the Armenian Christian minority to discriminatory treatment, including unequal taxation. The Armenian community still thrived economically, to the chagrin of Ottomans, who also feared that they plotted with European Christian governments. Tensions between the communities remained high into the twentieth century, as Armenian campaigns for basic civil rights were met with sporadic massacres. The Armenians found no relief with the reformist ‘Young Turk’ government and the onset of World War One. On April 24th 1915, fearing that Armenians would ally with their wartime enemies, the Turkish government arrested and ultimately executed around two hundred Armenian intellectuals in Constantinople. After this, a campaign was launched against Armenian citizens, who were rounded up and marched into the desert. Hundreds died on the journey, and thousands more were systematically executed by ‘killing squads’ or perished in concentration camps. The violence also extended into efforts at cultural extermination, kidnapping Armenian women and children and enslaving them or sending them to Turkish families. The massacres continued until 1923, at which time there were under 400,000 Armenians remaining in the Ottoman Empire. Numbers of victims are unclear, but it is estimated that over one million people were massacred between 1915 and 1923. One hundred years on, the event remains immensely controversial. It is widely considered a systematic genocide - and even led to the coinage of the word ‘genocide’ by Raphael Lemkin in 1943 - but the Turkish authorities continue to deny the scale of the violence.

sciencesoup:

The Blue Dilemma 

The Sun’s light is incredibly influential in our lives. Aside from providing almost all of our energy, it has another effect: our bodies use light intensity as a cue for our internal body clock. Being exposed to bright light in the morning helps our bodies to wake up and become energised, while the dimmer light at night-time tells our bodies to start winding down and sleep. Receiving the right amount of light at the right times of the day is critical for our wellbeing, because it helps regulate our alertness, our mood, our productivity and our sleep patterns. 

Our daily cycle is largely controlled by a hormone called melatonin, which is produced by the brain at night, in the dark. People who don’t produce enough of this hormone take longer to fall asleep. Bright light suppresses its production, so when we’re exposed to bright light at night—like a TV or computer screen—this can decrease our levels of melatonin and mess up regular sleep patterns. 

Clearly, the answer isn’t to revert to medieval times and go to bed at dusk; we can find ways to cope. See, the extent of our body’s response to light depends on a few of things: how bright the light is, how far the screen is from our eyes, and what colour is being emitted. Crucially, not all colours have the same effect on your body. Blue is the most disruptive wavelength, because it’s the most powerful in decreasing melatonin levels. Blue wavelengths suppress melatonin for almost twice as long as green wavelengths. 

That’s a bit of an issue, because most screens are backlit by blue light. 

So, what can you do? Well, you could avoid looking at screens for a couple of hours before bed, but let’s be real, that’s not going to happen. For a lot of people (including me), computers are the tool of their trade and they have to work on them until late. Instead, you could dim the brightness of your screen, or you could find a way to filter out the blue wavelengths. 

A couple of years ago, a friend clued me into this neat little program called f.lux. It adjusts the colour of your screen to become progressively yellower as the sun sets, so in the hours before you go to sleep, you’re exposed to less and less blue light. I’ve been using it for about three years and it’s really helped—you can download it here if you want to try it out!
