Known mostly for her humanist work, Mary Ellen Mark, "I'm very touched by kids who don't have advantages; they are much more interesting than kids who have everything. They have a lot of passion and emotion, such a strong will."

The photographer, who died last month, has a famous portfolio of arresting images. Among them is a shot of two children in 1990. Amanda thought the photo shoot would change her life. It did not.

I grew up in the south. Unfortunately, this wasn't an uncommon sight.

—and a sword. It was four feet long and glinted along the blade.

The mother took a deep breath.

“You can’t give her that!” she screamed. “It’s not safe!”

IT’S A SWORD, said the Hogfather. THEY’RE NOT MEANT TO BE SAFE.

“She’s a child!” shouted Crumley.

IT’S EDUCATIONAL.

“What if she cuts herself?”

THAT WILL BE AN IMPORTANT LESSON.

~ The Hogfather, Terry Pratchett. Happy Hogswatch!

+Lorne Thomas​ I do, too. His works bring sheer joy and introspection both.

A dad asks, "What happens when a 21st-century kid plays through video game history in chronological order? ...

Would that child better appreciate modern independent games that don’t have the budgets of AAA monstrosities...? Would they appreciate the retro aesthetic, or just think it looks crappy?"

So, from age 4...

Only heat the amount you want.
In pre-production. Cuppas. Soups. Design aside, perchance meditative to observe a liquid change state.
Miito boils liquids directly in the vessel, hence eliminating the heating of excess water. Invented by Nils Chudy, developed by Chudy and Grase

Important, yet often neglected cause and effect.

Separately, a study could be made on the reactions of those who hear her dissertation topic at a dinner table.
It's menstrual hygiene. The topic makes many folks uncomfortable. Yet in the developing world, it's a problem that keeps girls from going to school and playing in sports. Now things are changing.

From a Seu Jorge gig, I learnt that..
- flutes could be miked* up. Never considered it.
- a flautist would lead Brazilian pop samba.
- beer (diuretic) can be rehydration of choice throughout a 2+ hour gig for a band and lead who sang, played and danced the hours through.
- * there are discussions on miked vs mic'd. (eg. https://www.audiolinks.com/blog/mike-vs-mic/ )

I use "mic" unless I say something has been "miked".

But the world will likely never agree on any one solution, thus throwing us into centuries of bloodshed and turmoil...

I only learnt of this composer and piece yesterday, and fell in love with it. An expanded scoring of this octet was performed by the Australian Chamber Orchestra with Anthony Marwood as part of Marwood's Serenade. Lush and vivacious, four movements as one.
