Friday Evening Thread: TGIF Wind Down

I honestly don’t see how we’ll make it 9 more months of this shit. (I can only go that far, thinking of a full 4 years drives me to drink).


Where’s my prescription??

OMG, this was the best!

Is this the distraction NFL execs are weary of? Oh.

Kaepernick assists Somalia relief flight
Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is participating in an effort to bring relief to the people of Somalia and announced via a Twitter video Friday that he and his group have secured the use of a cargo plane to bring supplies to the impoverished east African nation.

    Anyone ever watch the British show Hex? It aired on BBC America back in ’04…I don’t know how I came to watch it, but I absolutely loved the show.

    I didn’t realize until a few years ago that Micheal Fassbender actually played the leading bad guy in the show. I always thought he looked familiar to me when I started paying attention to him in X-Men First Class

    If you haven’t seen the show, check it out, if it’s streaming somewhere…it’s a good supernatural show for the time.

    Um..

    — — Super Talented Matthew Smith is a Grade 5 standard violinist and also
    plays the guitar, drums, piano and viola. Incredibly he will take the
    lead when Nottingham Symphony Orchestra (NSO) play Die Fledermaus at the
    Royal Concert Hall in the city on April 2. The concert will make
    Matthew the world’s youngest conductor – beating the previous record of a
    14-year-old boy who directed the Venezuelan youth orchestra.
    The
    schoolboy has been practising with the 75-strong orchestra once a week
    over the past few weeks and took part in a rehearsal at a local school
    on this week. Today, Matthew said he can conduct the whole of Johann
    Strauss’ operetta Die Fledermaus from memory. The youngster, who lives
    in Carlton, Nottingham, added “I first listened to Die Fledermaus when I
    was seven-years-old. “I’d seen a video of a young child conducting the
    nine-minute piece and really wanted to give it a go. “I managed to
    conduct the whole thing a few weeks later. “I have been rehearsing with
    NSO for a couple of weeks now and it’s sounding really good. “There are
    some difficult parts where the music gets faster so I have to move my
    arms more but I’m getting the hang of it. “I have been practising a lot
    and can now conduct the whole piece from memory and I’m really excited
    to put my skills to the test and conduct a real orchestra.” Proud mum
    Beverlyn Riley, 40, added: “It’s fantastic. He is doing a marvellous
    job. “I’m a bit nervous for him but I’m sure he will succeed, most of
    all I want him to enjoy it.”
    Matthew’s performance will form part of
    NSO’s ‘Animal Magic!’ show which will also feature Swan Lake by
    Tchaikovsky and Peter and the Wolf by Prokofiev. Neil Bennison, music
    programme manager at the Royal Concert Hall, said young conductors like
    Matthew are rare.

    —-Alice Augusta Ball (July 24, 1892 – December 31, 1916) was an African American chemist who developed an injectable oil extract that was the most effective treatment for leprosy until the 1940s. She was also the first woman and first African American to graduate from the University of Hawaii with a master’s degree.
    . . . at the age of 24. She had become ill during her research and returned to Seattle for treatment a few months before her death.
    – – -SNIP- – –
    The University of Hawaii did not recognize her work for nearly ninety years. In 2000, the university finally honored Ball by dedicating a plaque to her on the school’s lone chaulmoogra tree behind Bachman Hall. On the same day, the former Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii, Mazie Hirono, declared February 29 “Alice Ball Day” which is now celebrated every four years. More recently, Ball was honored by the University of Hawaii Board of Regents with a Medal of Distinction in 2007

    – – — — –Jacob Lawrence (September 7, 1917 – June 9, 2000) was an African-American painter known for his portrayal of African-American life. But not only was he a painter, storyteller, and interpreter; he also was an educator. Lawrence referred to his style as “dynamic cubism,” though by his own account the primary influence was not so much French art as the shapes and colors of Harlem. He brought the African-American experience to life using blacks and browns juxtaposed with vivid colors. He also taught, and spent 15 years as a professor at the University of Washington. Lawrence is among the best-known 20th-century African-American
    painters. He was 23 years old when he gained national recognition with his 60-panel Migration Series, painted on cardboard. The series depicted the Great Migration of African Americans from the rural South to the urban North. A part of this series was featured in a 1941 issue of Fortune Magazine. The collection is now held by two museums.

    — — Norbert Rillieux (March 17, 1806 – October 8, 1894) is a Louisiana-born, French-speaking Creole inventor who is widely considered as one of the earliest chemical engineers and noted for his pioneering invention of the multiple-effect evaporator. This invention was an important development in the growth of the sugar industry, as it allowed an energy-efficient means of evaporation at lower temperatures. Rillieux was a cousin of the painter Edgar Degas.

    Norbert Rillieux (1806-1894), widely considered to be one of the
    earliest chemical engineers, revolutionized sugar processing with the invention of the multiple effect evaporator under vacuum.
    Rillieux’s great scientific achievement was his recognition that at reduced pressure the repeated use of latent heat would result in the production of better quality sugar at lower cost. One of the great early innovations in chemical engineering, Rillieux’s invention is widely recognized as the best method for lowering the temperature of all industrial evaporation and for saving large quantities of fuel.
