The Avengers

Came across this and I thought to my self "Self this is a pretty damn fine piece of digital gifness" and then I sat and soaked in the awesomness of inventing a new word. Sadly though I do not think Oxford or Websters is ready for the "gifness" which is sad if you take a moment to ponder it. On plus side #avengers ...so yeah.

Impressive.

FROM A DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR EMAIL:

Unfortunately, with multiple tragic events this past week, there are already multiple scams appearing.  The following is taken from a DOI Computer Incident Response Center (DOICIRC) notice regarding scams exploiting the Boston Marathon Explosion:

Malicious actors are exploiting the April 15 explosions at the Boston Marathon in attempts to collect money intended for charities and to spread malicious code. Fake websites and social networking accounts have been set up to take advantage of those interested in learning more details about the explosions or looking to contribute to fundraising efforts.              
For example, the Twitter account @_BostonMarathon was created shortly after the explosions took place. The account stated it would donate $1 for each retweet and was crafted to closely resemble the legitimate Boston Marathon Twitter account (@BostonMarathon). This account has since been suspended by Twitter; however, the likelihood that similar social media accounts will surface remains high.
Phishing email campaigns are also circulating using subject lines related to the Boston Marathon explosions. Do not open unexpected attachments or click on links in suspicious emails, even if the email appears to be from someone you know.
Several unregistered charities were also suddenly created on social networking sites claiming to be collecting money for the victims. If you're giving, do your homework first.  Know who you are giving to and know where your money is going.
Give to established, registered charities, and if you're giving through the Internet, make sure the website is legitimate and secure.  A lot of times, fake sites may look real, but if you look closely, the website address is slightly off.

US-CERT recommends that all persons interested in donating funds should go directly to established charities such as the American Red Cross. Exercise caution when interacting with social media accounts that claim to represent the best interests of those involved in the incident, and directly visit established news sources rather than conducting general search engine queries, as it can be difficult to tell which search results may lead to scam sites.

Wow - so many of these designs were used exactly in the films. Did he create the look of the banthas and other creatures?
 
So sad to hear about the passing of legendary Star Wars artist Ralph McQuarrie. He will be missed in more galaxies than one. George Lucas talks about his departed friend and collaborator here...

Well said.
 
I met Neil Armstrong once, at a dinner to honor Jimmy Doohan in the early 2000s.

He was not much taller than me, but he was a giant of a man.

I don't remember what I said to him, or what he said to me, because all I could think the entire time was "This man has walked on the fucking moon."

Rest in peace, Neil. Because of your bravery and your courage, an entire species will forever look into the night sky and see not a mystery, but a destination.

BJ<>Good to hear the new that all is good with you.BJ.<>I would not worry about the body too much!As we get a little bit older one need to change the training so in order that we can contain our good health.The key is knowing how you really feel.But the most important thing here is having the teacher or coach cater to your needs.Not keeping up with the Smith&Jones in training Shaolin Kung Fu.<>That is why i always like or enjoy to conduct seminars&workshops for all my grand students.Experience is the number one lock and key to perfect health and long life.Both internally&externally.Plus a very strong mind.
