Crowd-funded lego car powered by air 

"An air-powered car built of Lego, that can reach a top speed of around 20km/h (12mph) has hit the roads of Melbourne.

It was built by an Australian entrepreneur and a Romanian technologist who used more than 500,000 pieces of Lego to complete the car.

The crowd-funded project began with a tweet asking people to invest in an “awesome” start-up.

Four air-powered engines and 256 pistons, all built of Lego bricks, enable the car to move.

Everything bar the wheels is made from Lego.

Co-founder Steve Sammartino told the BBC that he was “neither a car enthusiast nor a Lego enthusiast”.

"What I am is a technology enthusiast and I wanted to show what is possible when you crowd-fund an idea and use young talented people," he said…"

In Their Words:

I design because colors and lines intrigue me, I am fascinated by the process of it all. You start with a blank screen and a couple of minutes or hours later you have a page full with lines and colors put together just right to make something beautiful, its amazing to me…

"Oguz Uyugar is the son of two practitioners of ebru, the Turkish art of paper marbling. In this gorgeous short film, he captures his father, Seyit Uygar, as he composes and swirls layers of floating color. There’s a mesmerizing beauty to the carefully placed droplets of pigment as they are delicately manipulated into unexpected and captivating patterns.”

Faces of Deportation

The New York Time Lens Blog is carrying “Detained, Deported and Determined,” a photo essay by Getty photographer John Moore.

In an accompanying article, Moore writes:

During President Obama’s first term of office, authorities deported a record 1.5 million people. A majority fell into several categories — those who had recently crossed United States borders illegally, repeat violators of immigration laws and those with a criminal record, according to the White House.

I have photographed this stark ritual often in the last few years. But in the United States, law enforcement restrictions that photojournalists not show the faces of immigrants in their custody has made it hard, at times, to humanize the images.

So, on this last trip to Arizona, the challenge for me was to find deported — or soon-to-be-deported — immigrants not in federal custody.

Moore did so by going to the San Juan Bosco shelter in Nogales, Mexico and to Maricopa County in Arizona.

IMMIGRANT RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS. 

Undocumented Immigrants are human beings- with faces, hopes, and dreams

It should be the law to have these swings within (at most) every 12 city blocks.

Bubble Chambers and the golden ratio
It’s always fascinating seeing patterns in nature, especially at the atomic level.
The above images are produced by a Bubble Chamber  - which is an instrument used in physics for detecting the tiny electrically charged particles that make up the entire universe.
The process of capturing these images is complex, involving superheated liquids and pressure variation, click the link above to find out more.
Anyway, the resulting images are quite stunning, and to me, that lovely golden ratio of 1:1.618 is displayed in all its glory.
Of course, the golden ratio, or ‘phi’, is a fascinating number. It is an irrational number, it can be explained in terms of itself, and it can be expanded into an ‘infinite continued fraction’ that goes on forever.
It’s also extremely closely linked to the Fibonacci Sequence.
It’s kind of beautifully poetic looking at these images through that perspective…with the endlessly recurring pattern in nature and the concept of infinity itself laid out right before your very eyes by the process of nature itself.
