It would seem counter-intuitive that a person wearing glasses—i.e., a person in need of a device to properly identify and understand incoming visual perceptual information—would be assumed to be more rather than less intellectually gifted. And yet that’s the transformative power of donning a pair of glasses, the thicker-lensed and clunkier the better.

The Spectre of Magical Realism Comes to TexasGabriel García Márquez
When he died last April at age 87, he had for a half century been a candidate for “world’s greatest living writer.”
Author of short stories and novels, including his masterpiece, One Hundred Years of Solitude, he received the Neustadt International Prize for Literature in 1972 and the Nobel Prize for Literature in Literature in 1982. He was a fierce critic of the United States and had a friend in admirer Fidel Castro, with whom he sometimes shared notes on his works-in-progress. He was banned as a “subversive” from entering the U.S. for several decades until President Clinton lifted the tr

Transrealism THE NEW SCIENCE FICTION?
Transrealism was coined by writer, critic and mathematician Rudy Packer in his 1983 essay, “A Transrealist Manifesto,” as a description of a specific sort of science fiction that was emerging at that time.
This was the introduction of sci-fi elements into fic

Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc (1412—1431) is the ultimate iconic rebellious teenager. In nineteen years she lived a fuller and more exciting life, effecting the future histories of the two most powerful nations on Earth, than most can even dream of, and then died a martyr’s death for her cause and beliefs, for which she was declared a saint 500 years later. Her story has been told in many novels, movies and comic books. She was the girl who God gave a mission to drive the occupying English out of northern France. So fervid was her demand for action that she was made an advisor to the French high command and led them to victory after victory in the cause of F

In Bangkok, Thailand, students are being arrested for raising their hands in the air to flash Katniss’ three–finger “freedom” salute.
That’s right, the Katniss who’s the fictional heroine of the popular dystopian sci–fi “Hunger Games” movie series. The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.

Can I get a "best jam ever!"?
I can't believe it, the fourth year going already! With this art jam we celebrate the obscure characters that we love so much. So, we have an art jam once a year to get together, draw and give the less popular characters a chance to shine!
Check out the previous jams for some inspiration:

KupferFor years, the usual way to start applications was to open a menu and click ones way through submenus, or to click on starters on the desktop or on the panel.Kupfer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Gradually, some desktop environments added alternatives for users relying on the keyboard. Gnome Shell allows users to type the applications name, as does Unity.
Xfce users are not provided with anything like that by standard, but it is easy to add without having to drag a whole new desktop environment on the system.
kupfer is (not only) a launcher that makes starting programs a matter of a mere instant. Activate the launcher, type the program's name (or even only a part of it; to start Chromium I simply press c) and hit enter - that's it. Simple and quick.
Several plugins even allow you to search stuff at Wikipedia, control Audacious, open files, write Emails, switch between windows and workspaces ... it would take to much time and space to list all.

I'm really sorry to everyone that's been waiting for my Prime HD icons. I have them all finished (Around 100 in the pack, and I will be taking requests upon release. In fact, I'll list the ones I have here and anyone can comment with requests and I'll make them to put in the pack for release).
The reason it's taking so long is because I've been trying to make packs for popular launchers (LP/ADW, Nova, Apex, Go) to release on the market, in addition to zips on XDA, but have not gotten a single icon pack apk to compile. If anyone out there wants to give me some help with this, it would quicken the release a lot! I will also be releasing a MTZ for M
