1) Let's talk about #art and the #UBI. @AndrewYang, anytime you want to talk, I'm ready!
2) I'm an #artist of sorts. I #paint, I get paid for it, I teach some classes, so let's say that I'm an #artist for the sake or argument, shall we? If you're on board, I'm on board. Let's get this thread started.
3) We could wax poetically for hours about the social good that #art does. There are thinkers and philosophers who have said more than I ever could about this and I suggest that you do your own research. Discovery is #beauty.

#JhelumFables , a 5 day visual storytelling workshop which I am conducting with youth in #Kashmir kicked off today. There couldn't have been a better classroom than the picturesque houseboat ROOTS situated on river Jhelum.

P.S: The best way to spend holidays in company of ✏️📸
#JHELUMFABLES
On day two of the visual storytelling workshop I interacted with each participant. We did small excercises to enhance imagination. Later they chose quaint corners of Roots houseboat situated on river #Jhelum & scribbled stories in company of wood & water. #Kashmir
Light experiments inside classroom on day 3 of #JhelumFables
A chair placed on the wooden Verandah of the houseboat facing west became a prop for portrait shooting- as participants tried side lighting & back lighting before venturing out on the river banks with their camera & pen

[Day3: Creating & Sustaining Spaces of Practice]
Q: Have you created or been part of initiatives for #Science #STEM #STEAM #SciComm practice? Are you considering creating one yourself?

Today we'll discuss "safe spaces to fail" and scaffolded experiences to build up your skills!
Why do I care?
As a former academic & now in my work to spread adaptable skills in #scicomm through #comedy, it strikes me how little prep we get to teach or give strategic talks as we make the shift from undergrad to grad levels

How many bad habits do we accumulate b/c of this?
What are some bad communication habits in #Science #STEM you've seen, experienced, or are still working to overcome?

Here's where I used to struggle:
- preparing talks the night before
- going over time
- imagining the audience wasn't even there
- bad PPTs
- STAGE FRIGHT

Our first panel at the #GlobeWomenPower symposium is about #Women, #Culture and #Art 🎭

We are very lucky to have @soulsister8, @ClairevkVan, @mogster and @Winsome_Pinnock reflecting on themes of #leadership, guided by our chair Professor Charlotte Scott.
We first ask - what does #leadership mean to you?

See the responses from our panel below - and share your own answer too!
For @soulsister8 leadership is multilayered - it's a strong element of who we are as humans. It's more a human expression than a business term, although we bring who we are to the workplace...

1/15 On Thursday the #SpektrRG satellite with the #eROSITA telescope will be shipped to Baikonur for the final preparations before the June 21 launch. This thread is the short story of ~10 years of development. @maxplanckpress @roscosmos @DLR_de
2/15 Back in 2012 the telescope support structure (equipped mainly with dummy mirror modules and cameras) was ready for a first series of tests. Here you see a preliminary inspection. The PI holds the ladder! #eROSITA
3/15 At the @IABG_mbH test facility, near Munich, the entire telescope (about 800 kilos of it) was brought into horizontal position to measure its mass and moment of inertia. #eROSITA

#Agriculture #Art et #Histoire,

"Les Sarcleuses" est un tableau de Jules Breton, peint en 1860.
Il représente des femmes en train de desherber un champ à la main. Une réalité aujourd'hui oubliée...

⏬⏬⏬
Que ce soit à la main, à l'aide de machines ou d'herbicides, desherber les champs a toujours été une nécessité. Les adventices, ou "mauvaises herbes" entrent en compétition avec les plantes cultivées et entrainent des pertes de rendements importants ...
Pire encore, certaines adventices peuvent causer de graves intoxications alimentaires. Séparer "le bon grain de l'ivraie" est donc une nécessité en #agriculture et s'effectue aux champs en desherbant, à la récolte par le tri et dès le semis en utilisant des #Semences triées...

This year: 200th #anniversary of the #publication of #Goethe's great work of #art "#WestöstlicherDivan".#Heisenberg memorized #love-#poems from the book while working on #QuantumMechanics in #Heligoland.
#Schubert it to #music:
The #poem sung by #ElisabethSchwarzkopf is on p. 166 of the 1819 edition and reproduced below, side-by-side with the 1914 translation by #Irish critic and #poet Edward Dowden (1843-1913).The translation is close, but NOT accurate (as Dowden tries to recreate rhyme and rhythm).

Remark. The unclear phrase 'zu jemandes Herzen sprechen' was
allegedly utilized by #Heidegger in at least one letter sent to
#HannahArendt in 1925: cf. lisa.gerda-henkel-stiftung.de/ich_muss_heute….

The capacity to compartmentalize may be an overlooked important psychological construct with positive implications for subjective #wellbeing #ThursdayThoughts
It may be related to the capacity for #play, one of the most under-appreciated activities to enhance subjective #happiness & adaptation.
Some cutting-edge, relevant #empirical evidence: 👀 #Psych

#JollofMusic101 Dear Upcoming Artiste: Basic Music Industry Terms you Should Know

3) Indie Labels:
These are self-funded labels that is NOT affiliated to any Big Three Record Label. Affiliation in this regard could be seen in the case of Mr Eazi’s Banku Music label liaising...
Universal Music Group Nigeria & South Africa. After his affiliation with Wizkid’s StarBoy Records in 2016.

Indie Labels often operate solo and an example of one would be #RicHassani’s label called Riverland Records.

Objective #art is possible only when somebody has attained to a higher plane of being; it is created by those who have reached the peak. They can see the peak and they can see the valley both. They can see the height, the beauty, the sickness and the ugliness of #humanity.
They can see deep down in the dark valleys. They can manage to create some devices which will help the people who are crawling in the darkness to reach the sunlit peaks. Their art will be just a device for your inner #growth, for #maturity.
Picasso’s pictures are subjective art. Seeing a painting by Picasso … he has not considered you, who are going to see the painting. You are not taken into account at all. He has simply vomited his own madness on the canvas. It is simply a vomit.

La chapelle Sixtine, du nom de son concepteur le pape "sixte" IV, se trouve sur la colline du Vatican (en face des "7 collines de Rome") où, au 1er s, un cirque présentait des courses de chars et voyait des chrétiens persécutés (dont selon la tradition, l'apôtre Pierre lui-même).
Le neveu de Sixte IV, Jules II, était un pape guerrier, toujours prêt à partir se battre pour son territoire, ce qui lui valu les surnoms de "pape-soldat" ou encore "Jules César II". On dit "qu'il préférait les bruits de canons à la prière".
C'est lui qui engagea Michel-Ange.

#INSPIRATION: Can't talk about #ALIEN the movie without crediting one of the most underrated designer giant in the field: Ron Cobb. His influence in the mechanical design and overall aesthetic is immense and go way beyond the movie itself.
more of Ron Cobb designs for the Nostromo
you can start to recognize some of the shapes lines of the Nostromo here, the cramped cockpit design, or the bow window where ash supervises the expedition.
