Recently, Kazahstan poster had an interesting idea about thread dedicated not to random pics, but for drawing and paiting and other kind of original content. He sadly not created one, but I think this is neat idea - when you learn how to draw and paint it always awesome to have help and critique, and I think with earnstchan quality of posting we can get very good reasults in help each other mastering our skils.

On op-pic I place my night fast drawing because it only thing I have on my phone right now that replated. Please, share with us your creations and ask questions.

I changed the composition of this picture >>19510 from 4:3 to 3:1. When I was rearranging the elements Jerry wound up being too small. To make him larger I decided that instead of having him write on the chalkboard, I could use an image where he was wearing Tom's mortarboard and holding a pointer. So I guess I didn't really change an old picture, so much as I created a new one that happens to look a lot like the old one.

There is another drawing I'll probably never finish. I spend on it enough time and I need to move on to learn new stuff. It is really better do quick scetches of specific things to get more good at drawing and paiting, that go for some sort of bigger projet that you need spend some time doing monotonous stuff

Stay healthy.

Only journalism or journalism schools? Strange, I heard humanities also have good chances, and I even know people who studied and study humanities who had internships at newspapers. It's a local one? I think it has to be has you mentioned local politics.

>In the end my future boss on time then said to me was that I'd be expected to bring in my own ideas and to get to know the local politics a bit better before I start the internship and that at the end I should publish an article. I should slowly start reading the two guides about journalistic writing I got laying around here btw.

Sounds challenging, did your future boss said you should read some or was it your own idea?

Sober since Tuesday. Good stuff, though it was rather grueling to have extended family over for dinner. They always argue about some dumb shit and you only realize just how stupid it is when you're not inebriated.
Wrote a pretty long to-do list which I'll start tackling tomorrow by putting some stuff online for sale.
Feeling kind of tired already so maybe I'll just watch a movie and take this as a chance to fix my sleep schedule.

Today was pretty good. Sat outside and read almost all of The Death of Ivan Ilich while sipping lemonade.
Did some homework too. We were asked to compile a list of books that influenced us, after we read Tolstoy's list of works that influenced him. Five books that had an influence on you until you were 14 years of age, and 5 from 14 to currently. It was pretty easy to compile.

I also entered almost all the cards into my deck. Still have 10 more to go but fuck that.

Had a 5 hour long conversation with one of the family's acquaintances. We went over a wide range of topics from sociology to literature. It was pretty rad. Sometimes /pol/ tier, but still stimulating. Finally got a chance to talk about that big pile of books I keep in my room.

Gonna watch some jap cartoons, and then I'm going to finish reading Ivan Ilich. Also started reading that Chinese adventure novel. It's entertaining. The MC kills himself in the first chapter. What a way to go. Looks like it'll be a fine little novel. Shame I don't know what its called in English or Chinese. (Or even German. Supposedly it has a Russian and a French translation.)

Economy-related stuff is big enough to have its own thread, such studies about economic/social stuff are constantly being made and it would be interesting to have a thread to share such articles. Let the history & sciences thread be a history-anthropology thread, since this is what is almost entirely being discussed there, and in the future if someone feels the need to create hard sciences specific stuff they can go ahead. Plus, the kind of discussion that this causes is different from history-related stuff, it is kind of news, but it's not news, it's still academic in the end. Economy, political science, sociology, geography, business stuff, urbanism, urban issues in general, infrastructure etc, all of this now belongs to the social sciences thread.

Rate this brave new world of services economy, globalization and increasing rural exodus where everybody flocks to some few global cities while the rest of the country dies.

>Singapore is a special case because of its location and its size, it can't be reproduced elsewhere

I'm not so sure about it. You could very well transform important cities into a kind of private states for whatever reason, it might be unlikely know but maybe not in the future. They would still drain the countryside around it. It's just that it's not old national territory anymore.
Or lets think about half private zones at least like special economic zones. You could push these into a more authoritarian direction if it is needed.

City States like Tringapore or Liechtenstein mainly profit from the fact that those are autonomous entities jurisdically, so they can attract companies to settle there as letterbox branch and save a huge amount of taxes and since the population is so little the few % taxation do not seem like much in global comparison, but really matter gdp per capita wise.
You can not reproduce this model on the scale of countries like lets say China or Russia. But, those entities have cities that have first world status and a countryside that has third world status.
Arguably I would say that the US is a special case, since it is not a nation that grew and developed organically.
Also Urbanisation is a thing, in the future all of our children will probably live in megapolis. Even in Germany, which is very contra-polis itself. Even our biggest cities look more like small towns stretched out over a large area. Munich for example even forbids the construction of skyscrapers, a silly thing if you ask me.

Strange seeing it's still up. I remember playing there quite excessively during my university years in 2011 under the moniker 'Bernard'. I fondly remember building a massive tower near spawn. I named Katyn fortress. I have a feeling if I would get online there were new people, a new map, everything as distant as my life now seems in retrospect.

What I find interesting is that this is fucking NY, not Alabama. We learn that one of the main things that made the norf richer than the souf was the financial industry that emerged in NY. Makes me wonder what other kinds of exotic financial laws exist or existed in that state in the past.

I think you just have a way different perspective on NY which to be fair is not just because you're a foreigner. Even people from California seem to think these things. Basically, pretty much all of New York state is Alabama, with the exception of the city-state of NYC and its administrative center of Albany which rules it. The city state itself is a complete shithole in a large variety of ways and is only really good if you're some kind of thoroughly crooked rich person, and all the oligarchs of NYC are crooked as all hell. It is actually run in a similar manner to modern Russia where it is difficult to discern where organized crime, legitimate business, and functions of the state begins or ends.

This is one of the main reasons I warned you all not to trust Trump, especially because you also can't get anywhere in that society without kissing the asses of Zionists way more than is usual anywhere else in the country with the sole exception of LA.

The rest of the state proper is basically like some fucked version of Russia mixed with Alabama. Except for a few minor shitty east coast/Chicago/Detroit cities of like 100,000 people such as Rochester and Buffalo the entire state consists of forests and farmland. Everything else is falling apart because NYC doesn't give a shit about anything north of them except Albany and Albany only gives a shit about NYC. You will notice this divide most on maps of voting by county where basically everything except NewYorkCity-AlbanyAdministrativeCenter is a red state.

Free this, free that, I deserve it! I'm old, I'm in my late 60s/early 70s. I worked 130 years at the local gravel shovelling union, so I deserve everything for free even though I'm a prole who failed to save up any money and had no qualificatons to work at anything, because I never needed it, since the Kádár-system guaranteed my employment no matter how much of an alcoholic fuckup I am. Therefore, my ego is gargantuan, and I'd send hundreds of young, virile people to dance in fire if that means that it'll prolong my mummified corpse's existence in this world. I was the member of the Communist Youth League, probably a member of the Communist Party too, I sang the International proudly, I waved the flag. Though that's the past. I preach Catholicism now, and hardcore nationalism, because these liberal youngsters need to be stopped. I only watch state television, and I vote based on the propaganda supplied to me, and based on which party promises a bigger raise to my pension. It doesn't matter if EVERYONE's pension is raised by 1.6% only, it doesn't matter, that's great. (Even though the true, actual elites of the Communist system and retired soldiers and civic servants have a pension of 300k forints a month, while I have to make ends meet from only 130k. Everyone gets an equal increase, just like during the good old days!)
I respect no one. Yet, if you are younger, I demand infinite respect from you. I'm so much wiser, I'm older so it must be true! Of course I'm an uneducated prole who "speaks only one foreign language" (three words of russian or german, repeated ad nauseam to impress fellow proles, or impressionable children.)
Matters not, we are the old ones, we are the past and the present, and the future should bow before us. You will lick my arse clean, you communist punk! Have I worked 350 years for this nation only for you to disrespect me? Everything you see was built through my "labour"!

The search for new Alzheimer’s disease treatments hit another big setback on Thursday when drugmakers Biogen Inc. and Eisai Co. said they would terminate two late-stage studies of an experimental drug after determining it would likely fail to help patients.

The announcement dashed researchers’ and investors’ optimism that the companies’ drug, called aducanumab, might succeed where previous Alzheimer’s treatments had failed. The news sent both companies’ stocks plunging, with Biogen’s shares closing down 29% and Eisai’s down 35% on Thursday. Biogen lost about $18 billion in market value.

The setback cast fresh doubts—voiced for years by some biotech analysts—on the hypothesis that has informed much of the recent research and investment into potential Alzheimer’s drugs: that the buildup in the brain of a sticky substance called Beta amyloid plays a pivotal role in the disease. Drug researchers said they may now need to go back to the drawing board in search of an effective treatment.

“This disappointing news confirms the complexity of treating Alzheimer’s disease and the need to further advance knowledge in neuroscience,” Biogen Chief Executive Michel Vounatsos said in a statement.

Aducanumab was an important bet for Biogen, which is based in Cambridge, Mass. The biotech company has been looking to Alzheimer’s disease treatment to fuel future revenue growth, especially as competition eats into sales of its core franchise of drugs treating multiple sclerosis. Their world-wide sales fell 4.3% to $8.6 billion last year.

A “mindblowing” haul of fossils that captures the riot of evolution that kickstarted the diversity of life on Earth more than half a billion years ago has been discovered by researchers in China.

Paleontologists found thousands of fossils in rocks on the bank of the Danshui river in Hubei province in southern China, where primitive forms of jellyfish, sponges, algae, anemones, worms and arthropods with thin whip-like feelers were entombed in an ancient underwater mudslide.

The creatures are so well preserved in the fossils that the soft tissues of their bodies, including the muscles, guts, eyes, gills, mouths and other openings are all still visible. The 4,351 separate fossils excavated so far represent 101 species, 53 of them new.

“It is a huge surprise that such a large proportion of species in this fossil assemblage are new to science,” said Robert Gaines, a geologist on the team from Pomona College in Claremont, California. The fieldwork was led by Xingliang Zhang and Dongjing Fu at Northwest University in Xi’an, 700 miles (1,127km) south-west of Beijing.

The fossilised organisms date back to 518m years ago when life on Earth experienced a massive burst in diversity known as the Cambrian explosion. The event, at the dawn of animal life, marked the arrival of all manner of unusual creatures. Many went extinct as evolutionary dead-ends, but others went on to form the first sturdy branches of the tree of life.

Willkommen! This thread is for the sharing and discussion of short-films of all kinds.

I would like to start with two films directed by Russian filmmaker Andrei Khrzhanovsky that are of importance and demonstrate the technical level Soviet/Russian animation once operated on.

>The Glass Harmonica (1968)

The first (and allegedly only) animated film banned in the USSR for its depiction of totalitarianism and censorship of the arts. Inherently it has an anti-capitalist message in the role money plays turning people into monsters but you can obviously see what is really at work.

What is interesting about this other than the on the nose message is the use of historical artwork in a surrealist format. It was a very daring film even for life in the Khrushchev Thaw.

I'm currently watching through a series called Love, Death + Robots and it suddenly struck me that it's really a bunch of short films. 18 episodes, each between 5 and 20 minutes. Some are remarkably good, like Good Hunting, The Witness and Zima Blue. These tree might be among my favourite 10 short films now. They are created (whatever that means in this context) by the guy who made the first Deadpool film, but they are made by different studios, with some studios doing more than one. The remarkable thing here is that they are pulling well funded animation away from the disney tier protected child fantasy. My favourite is definitely The Witness so far because it's just so damn refreshing. Images relevant.

None of these is a typical love-story. The love-component boils down to things like a pilot loving her aircraft, a werewolf caring for his brother, a mechanic loving to create automatons. I don't want to spoil any of it so I'll keep my mouth shut.
