Inventor of Implantable Pacemaker
Dies at 92
By BARNABY FEDER
Published: September 28, 2011 on The New York Times
Wilson Greatbatch, a professed “humble tinkerer” who, working in his barn in 1958,
designed the first practical implantable pacemaker, a device that has preserved millions of lives,
died on Tuesday at his home in Williamsville, N.Y. He was 92.
His death was confirmed by his daughter, Anne Maciariello.
Mr. Greatbatch patented more than 325 inventions,
notably a long-life lithium battery used in a wide range of medical implants.
He created tools used in AIDS research and a solar-powered canoe,
which he took on a 160-mile voyage on the Finger Lakes in New York to celebrate his 72nd birthday.
In later years, he invested time

THE BLiNK OF AN EYE
IN GALACTIC TIME
Said one man to another,
"At the high tide of the sea, long ago, I wrote a line upon the sand with the point of my staff;
and people still pause to read it, and they are careful that naught shall erase it."
And the other man said,
"I too wrote a line upon the sand, but it was at low tide, and the waves of the vast sea washed it away.
But tell me, what did you write?"
And the first man answered,
"I wrote this: 'I am he who is.'
But what did you write?"
And the other man said,
"This I wrote:
'I am but a drop in this great ocean.' "
~ Kahlil Gibran, The Wanderer
What we know is a drop. What we don't know is an ocean.
- Isaac Newton
Star Wars versus J J AbramsIt is not a simple topic.Star Wars versus J J Abrams2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I have been asked repeatedly of late for my opinion on the choice of J J Abrams to direct additional Star Wars sequels — and am tired of repeating myself — I provide this summary, outlining the key points as I perceive them.
But to speak of this matter requires me to first reference my issues with his take on Star Trek.
The Abrams reboot is a flashy, thrilling spectacle and quite entertaining in that fashion — but utterly lacks the thoughtfulness or relatively logical realism that Star Trek strives for at its best, driven instead by hackneyed setting cliches, ridiculous narrative contrivances, generic sci-fi tropes, "underage" casting and a technical style that seems 99% visual fluff and flash. As a direction, I fear this tact will lead the franchise to ruin, its distinctive character sacrificed in the name of maximum box-office returns.
In short, it is a fine — even great — space adventure film, but a lousy Star Trek one.

Should Today's Technologies Inspire?
We got to interview a visionary futurist with an eye on technology about what would inspire today's comic book writers to create our next superheroes with knowledge of real technological and scientific advancement.
You never know when it’s going to happen – that otherwise quotidian moment when you suddenly realize your entire thought process has just been tripped up and cast down a cerebral rabbit-hole destination unknown. Little did I know that what began as a typically pleasurable lunch with spyed and makepictures during the San Diego Comic-Con last year would morph into a mind-expanding mental wormhole voyage to the future courtesy of another guest at our table, JordanGreenhall, known to me only as the co-founder

Devious Journal EntrySomeone today, told me about a large stack of paperwork with names of cps workers who got fired.Devious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am not surprised that i only found a report involving six workers including the one who previously headed the agency here in Arizona. I still have yet to find the large stack of names i was told about earlier today... but i did find a lot of workers being fired.
I think the thing wrong with this is, they aren't getting fired for taking children in cases where their is no actual abuse, anything that has previously made the state money is being ignored. Those who have already been victimized by this organization, are S. O. L.
The thing they aren't looking at is this, workers get compensation, a sort of bonus, for closing cases. They also get bonuses for placing children, adopting them out, etc etc etc.
The worker who did her job right, who did everything she was supposed to, left me and my family alone. The worker who did not, took them on unfounded and later disproved claims which cps

I've recently, and very suddenly lost interest for devianart, not sure how long it will last but for now I will manage this group as best I can by checking in at least once a day (and not 20x times like I did before )
Before we didn't allow fan-art at all. But after seeing some amazing art that definitively aren't mainstream, but still contain reference to pop-culture - me and simonpark81 have decided to let some fan-art in the group.
I know this can be very confusing when it comes to what will be accepted or not, but I will try to explain it;
Direct portraits will not be accepted
caricature and other "mocking" of pop-culture will not be accepted
and here comes the twist
The medium / perspective is very well done in a "non-mainstream" way and therefore outweighing the pop-culture reference. This will be a judgement call on each sub

Apollo Spashdown Diorama: FinishedFor some reason, all the space sites I follow can't stop talking about Apollo 11. Pictures of the moon landing, etc. that kept popping up on my facebook news feed nagged me to revisit an idea I had a few months ago. I wanted to make a small diorama of an Apollo spashdown with an astronaut exiting the hatch. So I got to work.Apollo Spashdown Diorama: Finished9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Except this time, it won't be small. Instead of sitting centered on a 6x6 panel, the command module will be dwarfed by a vast ocean.
I started by sanding the paint off one of my lost causes and priming the surface with a heavy gesso. I mixed in some paper towel to create a base for the waves.
While that dried, I began to tackle the problem of making a real life spacecraft out of the contents of this box.

- guiding you as an artist and improving your artistic skills
So having said that... let's get started!
I have been drawing for a long time. Since I was little I would draw all the time on anything I could find. That passion for drawing and art has always stayed with me. But the problem is talent or potential will only get you so far. If you really want to become a great artist you will have to put in many hours of work. And you would preferably have someone there to guide you. Even now I am learning about basic skills I wish I had learned years ago. That is the problem of being self taught... you have to figure everything out yourself. Of course there are benefits to that too. Self taught artists are generally very motivated and passionate people. I have only come to the point where I am now just because I am passionate and slightly obsessed with drawing. But I want to know more, learn more and improve more. So that is why I am setting up this little drawi

Tips and featureI noticed that some of you work in small sizes when doing a photo manipulation. Of course working in small size is easier to cut corners, but most of the time it looks unfinished. You should try working at a higher resolution with high res stocks. It is more challenging to blend elements and to go over each detail. It also allows you to print your work in great quality afterward. My works are always higher than 4000 px width or height depending of the orientation. I resize down a jpg version before uploading to dA. Another tip, use the pen tool for cutting. Nothing really compares to that tool when it's time to perfectly cut something from a photo.Tips and feature2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Universal MandalasThe Universal Mandalas2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mandalas are a universal symbol found in most of the world's cultures. They are often ritualistic and usually associated with spirituality. They are widely known as Hindu and Buddhist religious symbols but they can also be seen in the sand paintings of many aboriginal nations, in the layout of temples and churches, even in the stained glass rose windows of cathedrals.
While the symbolism behind the mandala is usually the unity and order of the cosmos, they can also represent the integrity of the self. During the more difficult periods of his life, Carl Jung drew a mandala every day. This helped him not only with the development of his own spirit but it also enabled him to refine his great theories of the psyche.
