Oily disasters: When will we ever learn?
The Gulf of Mexico oil disaster was the worst accidental spill in history. No, not the one getting the headlines today, but the one in 1979 — although the current spill may eventually prove to be larger. Those of us old enough to remember may be experiencing déjà vu. On June 3, 1979, a blow-out preventer failed on the Ixtoc I drilling platform off the coast of Mexico. The well was owned by Mexico's state oil company, Pemex, but the drilling was being done by Sedco, which later became Transocean, owner of the Deepwater Horizon rig where the current disaster is unfolding. As with today's crisis, the experts ... market research, surveys and trends
The Gulf Oil Spill as the Unfolding of Prophecy | Reality Sandwich
As someone who has written extensively on indigenous prophecies relating to this time, it is hard for me to escape the uneasy presentiment that the massive, ceaseless, devastating cascade of what may be more than 100,000 barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico each day – apparently still mixed with the far more toxic dispersant Corexit that British Petroleum continues to inject, despite EPA objections – is anything but the inception of a new phase in the foretold unfolding of events that may terminate most life on earth, potentially leading to the rapid extinction of the human species. Recent articles reveal that there is a gigantic market research, surveys and trends

Worldchanging: Bright Green: São Paulo Bans Outdoor Ads in Fight ...
In January, the city of São Paulo, Brazil, enacted a ban on virtually all outdoor advertising. Billboards, neon signs, and even buses and taxis have been wiped clean of advertisements in the municipality, the world's fourth largest. According to Mayor Gilberto Kassab, the so-called "Clean City Law" arose from a need to address rising pollution of all kinds, including air, water, and noise. "We decided that we should start combating pollution with the most conspicuous sector--visual pollution," he was reported as saying. Since its adoption, the law has eliminated some 15,000 billboards as well as ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Patriot with a No. 5 paintbrush | Zev Yaroslavsky
For decades, his multi-story portraits of artists, movie stars and musicians have helped define a quintessentially L.A. cityscape as big as all outdoors. Now he’s headed someplace new—indoors—with a task ahead of him that looms as large as ever: bringing back to life the essence of murals that vanished decades ago in the Bob Hope Patriotic Hall. The scenes, created by Chicago-born artist Helen Lundeberg, mysteriously disappeared sometime in the ‘70s—stripped off the walls and destroyed or spirited away to points unknown. Now the landmark 1926 building, once the county’s Hall of Records, is getting a $45.4 million renovation. As ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Material World: Objects and visual analyses Archives
One can detect an archaeological turn in popular culture that suggests an emergent anti-modernity and twists in the temporal imagination. In this movement, timelines are neither linear nor circular, but involve a complex folding of time, or what Svetlana Boym (2001) calls "reflective nostalgia." Mainstream media examples include Benjamin Button, Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy (film: The Golden Compass), the Harry Potter series or recent television programs such as Lost, Journeyman, Heroes or Life on Mars. It is also expressed in contemporary material culture through "retro" and eclectic ...

Any information about the bulb setting on the Minolta SRT 101 ...
I have a Minolta SRT-101 and I've had it for a few months and I use it regularly, and I've never used the "B" setting because I'm afraid of wasting my film because I don't know how to use it. Any information on using it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you :) Answerer 1 There are many creative uses for the "Bulb" setting. As Fishmeister said it is great for time exposures longer than the 1 second maximum timed setting on the SRT. It is also useful for "light painting" where some one uses a light source such as a flashlight or candle and moves the light around while the shutter is held ...
