Gamesmanship in Vogue

Carnegie’s got a cool new collection of high-performance upholstery textiles coming our way. Game Theory is comprised of four designs, each of them unique with the whole cohering around the concept of social interactions, i.e., how individuals work cooperatively to obtain group goals. The philosophy manifests in patterns that celebrate texture and geometricity. These are graphical representations of different approaches to similar problems, creating a varied and vivid palette with broad appeal...

Pictures From an Expedition

At the corner of College & 22nd, I noticed the broken handset dangling from this pay phone. I hit the power window button and brought the camera up to snap a photo. Just as I framed it, the light went green and Bobbi hit the gas, since our lane ended ahead and she needed to get over to the left.Fortunately I had inadvertently left the camera in Aperture Priority mode with the lens wide open, and the resulting 1/1600th shutter speed was fast enough to catch the shot without motion blur. A little...

Proposed Ban on Social Media Gun Pictures Proves Gun Control is Total Control

One way: His. (Jason Pizzo/Facebook video screenshot) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “If you post it on social media, that’s probable cause for us to come get the guns out of your house,” Democrat Florida State Senator Jason Pizzo proclaimed in a Facebook video three years ago. “That’s it. It’s now on you to explain why you have a gun in your house and why it’s on social media…” He was stumping at the time to change the law to deny the right to keep and bear arms to young adults old enough to vote...

Hi I've just bought an inkpad 3 "tea" version, and was eager to use opds catalogs, but unfortunately it seems that this feature is somehow missing... I've checked the latest russian user manual and discovered a whole section explaining how to use the so-called online libraries aka opds.This section does not exist at all in the US manual.

Movie Review: Bone Tomahawk

Finally got a chance to see this film and I really enjoyed it. I don't want to give any spoilers since the best way to watch it will be without any knowledge or information. Don't be tempted to read detailed reviews. Set aside 2 hours to sit and watch it. It's a slow burn western with a bit of a psychological or violent horror twist. I cannot speak highly enough for this movie. It's a must see for anyone who likes westerns and horror. Be forewarned there's some serious real violence an...

A Reading Gallimaufry

I've had some reading disappointments in recent weeks, books that have started well and lost my interest after about seventy pages, but plenty more that have keep me going to the last page and given me much to think about beyond. Here are three of them. Travelling in a Strange Land ~ David Park (Bloomsbury 165 pages) David Park has been on the edge of my reading radar for years, though never quite made it into the mix until now and this book.  Tom and Lorna's son Luke is studying at Sunderlan...

The first great photography craze

Before Instagram, selfie sticks, disposable cameras, Polaroids, and box brownies, there were carte de visites – small photographic albumen prints, mounted on card, which were wildly popular during the Victorian era. Also known as CdV, carte de visites followed the early pioneering photographic techniques such as daguerreotype and ambrotype, which were expensive and difficult to reproduce. Cartes de visites were born from calling cards, which bore the owner’s name and usually an emblem, a...

Second Amendment Sanctuaries and the Constitutional Rule of Law

Michelle Lujan Grisham at a rally. (AFGE) New Mexico/Colorado – -(AmmoLand.com)- Recently some very pro-Second Amendment localities have begun to take a page from opponents of the enforcement of immigration laws. That page is to declare their counties to be “Second Amendment sanctuary” jurisdictions. It is very ironic that the very anti-Second Amendment politicians, many of whom also support the “sanctuary city” concept, are now quite irritated about this new development. Look, Second Amendme...
