Face Your Fears (Reprise)
Starring Rachel Bloom
Featuring Scott Michael Foster
Written by Rachel Bloom, Adam Schlesinger, Jack Dolgen

REBECCA
I’ve never been afraid
Of opening my heart
For the slightest chance at love
I’d gladly tear my life apart
But now, I finally have a sense
Of who I am inside
So do I risk it all again
Or do I run and hide?
Face your fears
Stare them down
Don’t be scared
Stand your ground
‘Cause love is not as scary
As it appears
All I gotta do is
Face my–

“In This Blind Alley” poem by AHMAD SHAMLU

556874_orig.jpg

They smell your mouth

Lest you’ve told someone ‘I love you.’

They smell your heart

These are strange times, my dear

Love,

they drag out under lampposts

to thrash.

Love must be hid in closets at home.

In the cold of this blind alley

They keep their fires ablaze

burning our anthems and poems.

Do not venture to think.

These are strange times, my dear

He who pounds on the door in the nighttime

Has come to kill the light.

Light must be hid in closets at home.

Lo! the butchers

stationed on roads

with chopping-board and cleaver soaked in blood

These are strange times, my dear

They slit smiles off of lips

And song from the throat.

Joy must be hid in closets at home.

Canaries are being roasted

on a spit of lilacs and jasmine

These are strange times, my dear

Satan, triumph-drunk

Feasts at a table spread with our mourning

God must be hid in closets at home.

This poem was written shortly after the 1979 Revolution.

Bucky Fuller on problems

A problem adequately stated is a problem solved theoretically and immediately, and therefore subsequently to be solved, realistically.  The assumption is that the inevitability of a solution’s realization is inherent in the interaction of human intellect and the constantly transformative evolution of physical universe.”

–Bucky Fuller

Paraphrased by Thane of Hawaii:   “The glorification of the universe depends upon man’s expansion of consciousness.”

Did Facebook conflate art with porn when it shut down a Paris teacher’s account? Accused of censorship over a 19th-century oil-on-canvas vagina, the US social media giant has a court date – if not a fine art lesson – in France on Thursday.

The trial in the French capital comes seven years after Facebook shut down a Paris teacher’s personal account without notice on February 27, 2011, after the art lover posted a photo of Gustave Courbet’s 1866 painting “L’Origine du monde” (“The Origin of the world”) on his virtual wall. The photo in question was hyperlinked to a video reportage about the artwork’s history.

Frédéric Durand-Baïssas posted the painting days after Facebook had similarly shut down Danish sculptor Frode Steinicke’s account on the site for the same purported infraction of the social network’s rules barring nudity. Steinicke’s account was eventually reactivated, sans the offending artwork.

Claiming freedom of expression, Durand-Baïssas sued Facebook in October 2011 to get his own account reactivated. So began a five-year jurisdiction battle with the California-based firm, which argued it was accountable to California law and could only answer to a US court.

ARTIST EMMA BLAU: ‘BECAUSE OF ALGORITHMS, RIDICULOUS THINGS GET TAKEN DOWN’

“On the one hand, Facebook shows a total permissiveness regarding violence and ideas conveyed on the social network. And on the other hand, [it] shows an extreme prudishness regarding the body and nudity,” the aggrieved Facebook user’s lawyer, Stéphane Cottineau, told the Associated Press in 2016, after winning the right to have the case heard in France.

Courbet’s iconic nude, a canvas likely commissioned by the Turkish-Egyptian diplomat Khalil-Bey, its first owner, entered the Musée d’Orsay in 1995, 40 years after its last private purchase, by the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan.

“The anatomical description of female sex organs is not attenuated by any historical or literary device,” the Paris museum describes the work in an online blurb. “Yet thanks to Courbet’s great virtuosity and the refinement of his amber colour scheme, the painting escapes pornographic status.”

Rare ‘super blue blood moon’ wows skywatchers

Latest update : 2018-01-31

Stargazers across large swaths of the globe – from the streets of Los Angeles to the slopes of a smoldering Philippine volcano – had the chance to witness a rare “super blue blood Moon” Wednesday, when Earth’s shadow bathed the moon in a coppery hue.

The celestial show was the result of the Sun, Earth, and Moon lining up perfectly for a lunar eclipse just as the Moon is near its closest orbit point to Earth, making it appear “super” large.

It is the second full Moon within the same month, a phenomenon called a “blue” Moon which has nothing to do with its color.

The “blood” in the name comes from the reddish brown color the Moon takes on when Earth enters between it and the sun, cutting off the light rays that usually brighten the lunar surface.

The eclipse began around 3:45 am (1145 GMT), as a black shadow began to devour one corner of the gray-white Moon.

An hour later, the lunar surface was plunged into darkness, known as totality.

Then, rusty tones began to sheath the Moon, reflecting the light of all the sunrises and sunsets on Earth at the same moment.

Why is it called a ?
🌕Supermoon – When the Moon is at or near its closest point to Earth
🔵Blue Moon – The second full moon in a month
🔴Blood Moon – The red tint Earth’s shadow casts on the Moon during a lunar eclipse

There were gasps of delight at that moment in a school in the Philippines town on Guinobatan where some of the 90,000 people who have fled the erupting Mount Mayon volcano were sheltering.

There they were treated to a double-spectacle — a supermoon eclipse rising over a mountain spewing ash and lava.

“It’s huge and bright. It’s exciting to see. God created this beautiful moon and the volcano,” farmer Jose Almesolano, 75, told AFP.

Ominous signs

On the other side of the Pacific thousands were gathering at Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory, which opened its doors at 3:30 am (1130 GMT) to a crowd expected to reach 2,000.

Some had waited in line since 10:00 pm the night before, hoping for a choice viewing spot, many science buffs bringing their own telescopes to set up on the lawn.

The extreme east of Africa, the Middle East and Asia, Russia, Australia and New Zealand could enjoy the spectacle on Wednesday night, weather depending, as the Moon rose there.

But most of South America, Africa and Europe, where the alignment occurs in the middle of the day, missed out on the show.

In the Indonesian capital Jakarta, several thousand people lined up at the planetarium to catch a glimpse of the rare event on one of its telescopes.

“I was watching the news on TV and then came here immediately,” Yami, who like many Indonesian goes by one name, told local media.

In Nepal, where the super moon was just visible in the hazy polluted night sky over Kathmandu, the celestial phenomenon was greeted with more caution as an ominous sign.

Local newspapers there had printed warnings telling citizens not to eat, drink, sleep or even go to the toilet during the lunar eclipse, citing Hindu customs.

Next one

NASA trained its telescopes and instruments on its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter on the Moon to measure the effect of the temperature drop during the one-hour-16-minute eclipse.

Seeing what happens when the surface of the Moon cools quickly will help scientists “understand some of the characteristics of the regolith — the mixture of soil and loose rocks on the surface — and how it changes over time,” the US space agency said in a statement.

The last “super blue blood Moon” occurred on December 30, 1982, when it was seen in Europe, Africa and western Asia.

For North America, the last time was in 1866.

If you missed this one, the next blue Moon total lunar eclipse will happen on December 31, 2028, though it won’t be quite as large since it will not be as close to Earth.

Another will occur on January 31, 2037.

“The red color during a lunar eclipse is very distinctive and it’s a rare treat to be able to see a blood red Moon,” said Brian Rachford, associate professor of physics at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

“One of the great things about a lunar eclipse is you also don’t need any special equipment to see it. Anyone can go outside and look at the Moon.”
