SOPAA few months back I wrote a journal about an internet censorship bill that was looking to be passed in the congress. The bill was poorly written, but the broadness of the wording freaked a lot of internet dwellers out. People were scared their favorite websites would be censored or removed completely. Thankfully the bill didn't pass. Unthankfully a new version is going up for vote now and this time it's getting far more support.SOPA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
SOPA = Stop Online Piracy Act
Once again it's very broadly written and could have very serious implications if it gets passed. The bill is written with the expressed purpose of being able to take legal action against online piracy in foreign markets. It seems likely that the bill is meant to snub out piracy sites like ThePirateBay.org, but the wording is so broad that it's very possible that it could have serious repercussions elsewhere.
Yesterday the bill was supposed to be voted on, but it was delayed due to a filibuster. It's currently set to be voted
What Jesus Really Said About the PoorWhat Jesus Really Said About the Poor1 year ago in Personal More Like This
On this Christmas Day, it might be nice to remember what Jesus really said about the poor.
Luke 6:20-21 Then he looked up at his disciples and said: 'Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 'Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. 'Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.'
Luke 4:16-19 When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:
'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour.'
NDAA has a partner in crimeMost of you have heard about the NDAA. Obama signed it into law on December 31, 2011. What I realized after some research is that the NDAA itself is not the problem. The NDAA has in fact been around for years. It's basically a bill that grants the US military the power to act if needed and get funding for the next year.NDAA has a partner in crime3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The problem is actually some unusual added provisions that came with NDAA for 2012. Specifically, section 1021, AKA the indefinite detention provision. Some have gone so far as to claim that the extra provisions turn the US military into a private/militant police force. The provisions permit the military to indefinitely detain US citizens under suspicion of terrorism. No trial required. And to some, protesting is a minor act of terrorism.
This is in violation of the Constitution in MULTIPLE parts. Article I, Section 9, clause 2 of the Constitution says "The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Inva
U.S. Is Secretly Collecting ALL Phone Call RecordsTold ya. I've been screaming about this for fifteen months. It's not just Verizon. It's all phone companies. It's ALL phone calls, not just those placed on Verizon, and I predict that by the time it all comes out, it will be proven that they are intercepting ALL email and other Internet traffic as well. See the two updates below The New York Times story. Why do you think the NSA has been building a 1,500,000 square foot data center in Bluffdale, Utah?U.S. Is Secretly Collecting ALL Phone Call Records2 years ago in Personal More Like This

It has occurred to me that I have never done a raffle before. And I kinda wanna do one. This raffle is going to be very small and very simple. That's just how it's gonna work. There's not much you have to do, but there are some pretty easy rules to follow.
You must be watching me. Whether a new watcher or an old watcher, I don't care. No tears.
You must favorite this journal. I don't care if you unfav it after the raffle is over. But you have to fav it the first time.
You must have at least three deviations in your gallery. I'm not giving them to you just because. I want you to deserve them.
You must favorite this journal by Sept. 19th, 2013 or you will not be included in the raffle.
Now that we have the rules established, let's move onto the raffle prizes. They are very small, as I stated earlier. (Maybe I'll do a bigger one another time.)

BioillustrationIntroductionBioillustration10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Bioillustrations has been around for years, but lately it's become more of a hot topic. Some universities have added degree programs in Bioillustration including University of Florida. Other universities have established programs such as Iowa State University, University of Toronto, John Hopkins University(whose medical and biological illustration program just celebrated it's 100th anniversary).
What is Bioillustration? It is the illustration of biological concepts and principles. Bioillustration is all around you. Open a biology or medical textbook, all the diagrams and figures are bioillustration.
For as long as there has been science, people have been devising ways to share their discoveries. The history of Bioillustration is hard to track down since it is not as widely studied. Instead of giving a history, I'm going to share about different historic artists and biologi

Tutorial Tuesday: Comic Composition (part 1)So you want to make a comic book? That is awesome! Let's make sure it doesn't suck...Tutorial Tuesday: Comic Composition (part 1)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A comic book, though dominated by pictures, is more like a language than anything else. It's communicating a story, information, and/or ideas to somebody else. In order to communicate clearly there are certain rules that need to be followed so that everyone understands what the story, info, or idea is trying to convey, much like a language.
There is alot of rules to comic book and sequential art composing. So we're going to do this in two parts. Part one is the bare bones basics. Next week will be part two, where we talk about some higher level concepts. Still the basics, but part two is useless to you unless you understand this part today. So lets get started.
