Bill Nye's Graduation Speech Was Everything

Bill Nye delivered the Rutgers University Commencement speech to the graduating class of 2015. Nye's words came with a strong message: Climate change is a very real threat that we can no longer ignore.

In fact, according to Nye, the threat of climate change should be taken as seriously as previous generations took the threat of World War II. The world faces "the most serious environmental crisis in human history," Nye told the graduating students.

The Real Reason for Supernatural Concepts
Remember back in 2013 when Kpop went into full supernatural concept mode? From EXO's Wolf, VIXX's On & On, Boyfriend's Bounce, etc, etc... there were vampires, aliens, werewolves galore. Nowadays in 2016, though, we're seeing a rise to realism. BTS dealing with drugs (I Need U) or Monsta X dealing with totalitarianism (All In) But, why? "Zombies are the perfect metaphor." (source) Basically, using the supernatural has always been a way of talking about real life issues, without actually bringing them up. For example, in Harry Potter House Elves would represent slaves, the discrimination and fear of werewolves represented how ridiculous racism is, etc. Fiction allows us to talk about important issues in a sly way. For example, VIXX's Hyde portrayed them as vampire-like, living in a spooky house and dark forest, growing black wings and almost being taken over by a monster. At its core, this is a song about dangerous relationships. A partner who is emotionally unstable, but charming. Hurting you but begging to have you back. This can be a metaphor for abusive relationships of all kinds. They repeat over and over that "that man isn't me, there is a crazy 'other me' inside of me." Just as abusers usually do after a moment of violent anger. Hiding this message behind the mask of "monsters" and "dark angels" makes it easier to consume and talk about. But take away the supernatural and its a serious issue they bring up. Another great example is Monster by Big Bang. They dress up as literal monsters, but talk about how just because they are different and not fitting into the society's mold they aren't bad people. It's an anthem for misfits, and a message to society to stop being so cruel. So why are we shedding the costumes now? Why are things suddenly more...real? We're done hiding. The problems can no longer stay hidden, we need to talk about them. No more using vampires and ghosts as metaphors, the general public is more comfortable discussing issues like depression, drugs, mental health, discrimination, etc. The move to realism means that we're being realistic about the problems - we're addressing them head on. That being said, there is nothing wrong with supernatural concepts being used to talk about issues! Often people can't understand something in its original form. For example, maybe someone doesn't see the need for LGBTQ+ rights. Give them a love story with a couple that is forced apart, never to be together (perhaps a vampire and a human??) because society says its unnatural. If while reading the story or watching the movie, that person feels upset about this poor couple torn apart by society, maybe they will see the correlation between their belief that gay marriage is wrong. Basically, I think that the constant changing of concept trends is fascinating and it means much more than we think!
See how an Italian missionary-turned-Chinese court painter.
Artist to Know: Giuseppe Castiglione An Italian teacher turned-Chinese court painter, Giuseppe Castiglione went through more than 50 years working with three distinct heads in the Chinese royal residence. Seven of Castiglione's canvases are coming to sell. Offered by Los Angeles-based sales management firm Pauling's, these compositions present an extraordinary chance to investigate the craftsman's work. Get familiar with Castiglione's life and heritage before the occasion, get updates and know the latest upcoming similar auctions at the auction calendar of auction daily. Brought into the world in 1688, Castiglione entered the Jesuit strict request at 19 years old. Taking note of his imaginative capacity, the request sent him to the Chinese majestic court in Beijing a couple of years after the fact. He before long expected the name Láng Shíning (郎世寧, Peace of the World) and started to deliver artworks for Emperor Kangxi. Giuseppe Castiglione Lang Shining, his quality in the court was a significant improvement for both diverse workmanship and strict resistance. As indicated by the Executive Intelligence Review, "Castiglione trusted in joining together and changing both Chinese and European societies through a quest for magnificence and greatness on the whole spaces of science, expressions of the human experience, and designing." Castiglione finished a more prominent number of artistic creations for Kangxi's child, Emperor Yongzheng. He made numerous investigations of scenes, creatures, and blossoms during this period, which are his most punctual enduring works. Today, the South China Morning Post gauges that somewhere in the range of 100 and 200 bits of craftsmanship from Castiglione remain. A considerable lot of these are housed in Beijing exhibition halls and private assortments. Nonetheless, it was during the rule of Emperor Qianlong that Castiglione finished most of his work. He made various representations of the ruler, sovereign, and different consorts. Until now, a portrayal of Qianlong's supported Consort Chunhui holds the most noteworthy closeout record for a Chinese royal fitting picture. It was sold in a 2015 Sotheby's deal for HKD 137.4 million (USD 17.7 million). Truly, Castiglione's compositions have aroused bidders' curiosity when coming to sell. Large numbers of his works of art stay in the ownership of Chinese and Taiwanese historical centers because of his imaginative importance. One can see such works of great artists in the auction previews of auction daily. Paragon International president Lu Qiulian noticed that Chinese gatherers are particularly intrigued by his work. The Hong Kong sales management firm expected a pony painting by Castiglione to bring HKD 100 million (USD 12.9 million) in 2016. Notwithstanding, it isn't openly known whether this gauge was reached. "The painter is exceptionally popular for being the principal European court painter for the ruler," Lu kept, "spearheading a style mixing Chinese and Western feel and procedures." Late years have shown expanded interest in the predetermined number of Castiglione works. A piece named Hundred Horses was sold at Sotheby's for USD 100,000 of every 2016 and another turn outsold for HKD 1 million soon thereafter. The forthcoming Pauling's deal incorporates gauges for Castiglione's compositions going from USD 1,200 to $12,200. Castiglione is especially appreciated for his association with Eastern and Western procedures. Adjusting viewpoint, chiaroscuro (light and shadow), and authenticity to Chinese tastes, a significant number of Castiglione's pieces offer a window into the creative inclinations of the heads. Qianlong respected the painter's style and utilized Castiglione's association with the Jesuit request to advance resistance and harmony inside his realm. Media Source: Auctiondaily

I Was Stalked and Filmed on a Subway? :(
Recently I had a very creepy experience on the subway. A had a very odd man sit next to me and start filming me secretly (though obviously not so secretly since I noticed) He also tried to follow me but luckily I tricked him. For more info you can check the video below. **this is not common AT ALL in Korea, it only happened to me in Seoul because that's where I live. This could, and does, happen all over the world no matter what culture~** What I hope you take from this: 1. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. If someone sits next to you (even if it seems totally normal) just take a millisecond to recognize that - don't just stay zoned in on your phone. 2. If you feel uncomfortable - get up and move. I didn't do this but I should have. I didn't need to "prove" he really was creepy, regardless of if he was or not, I have every right to just move away. 3. If someone made you feel uncomfortable, trust your gut and keep an eye on them in some way. If I hadn't noticed him earlier, he might have followed me off the train without me knowing. 4. Let someone know where you are and what was up. Even if its just texting a close friend that is dependable "hey I'm at XYZ bus stop, there was a weird guy on the bus lol" just so someone knows. In case something happens to you, it could help people find you. 5. If you see something weird happening to another girl, try to do something. When I see guys getting too close to girls on crowded trains I always try to make it seem like I'm with the girl too so he's outnumbered, or I stare them down so they know they aren't being sneaky. Be safe out there everyone, and just be alert :)
Everything You Need To Know About Breast Lift
Breast lift surgery is the process of lifting up a woman’s breast to reduce sagging and improve her appearance. If the nipple and areolae are pointing downward or drooping downwards, then this surgery helps to lift them up. People get confused between breast augmentation and breast lift. Let me tell you both are different and could be done together if needed by the patient. The consultation process before any surgery is extremely important. So choose your breast surgeon well and discuss the cost of breast lift, recovery process after the breast lift surgery and the things that you need to take care of before the surgery. Consider All These Things For Breast Lift Surgery How to prepare for lift surgery? Well, start with looking for the best cosmetic surgeon to consult with. Ask about the importance of surgery, whether or not you need only a breast lift or also breast augmentation. Many women opt for both surgeries inorder to achieve the best result. It’s not necessarily true that breast lift will increase your cup size. Do you need a breast lift? A woman’s chest may start drooping due to a lot of reasons. When your breasts are sagging and the nipples face downward, then you can consider a breast lift. The surgery also reduces the areolae size along with improving the shape of your breasts. Making it appear fuller and firm. You might consider mastopexy if: * Your breasts are flatter and longer due to stretching, so they start to sag. * When your chest is unsupported then the nipple might fall below the crease of breasts. * You have downward-pointing areolar and nipples. * Out of proportion of the areolae in comparison to the breasts. * Uneven breast, one is uneven and sags more than the other. Consultation With A Plastic Surgeon Talking and communicating with your plastic surgeon is the most important step for this process. Checking all the corners to see if you are compatible with the ongoing process. Past health: Your plastic surgeon will ask for a medical history, checking for any complications or risk beforehand. They will check for mammograms also called breast x-ray scans. Definitely check for cancer or any abnormalities that can affect during surgery. If you had any surgeries recently or a medical condition, share it with your surgeon. Physical tests: Depending on the position of the nipples and areolae, the surgeon will examine your chest area to determine the best procedure. Surgeons will measure your breast, skin tone and best lift height for your body type. They will also take photos for medical documentation. Talk about final results: Convey to your breast surgeon, what your end goal is from your perspective. Tell them why you need breast surgery, what your appearance should look like. Understand all the risks and complications of the surgery. Post Surgery Recovery The recovery process after a breast lift surgery will need 2 to 4 weeks, depending on how detailed the surgery was. A post-surgery bra will keep your breast firm for recovery. Depending on the stitches, you may have to appoint a follow-up, to remove the stitches. You cannot do any strenuous physical tasks during the recovery period of about a week. The operated area may be slightly bruised and swollen for up to 2 weeks. Numbness may last for 4 weeks, along with pain near the incisions. Nipples may feel sore and may appear pinker than usual. However, the surgeon will provide you pain medication for the first 2 weeks. What to do after a breast lift? * Take pain medication prescribed by your doctor. * Visit your surgeon for follow up exams. * Wear the surgical support bra, all the time for at least 2 weeks. * Keep yourself covered from harsh sunrays. What not to do after mammoplasty? * Avoid sexual activity for 2 weeks. * Avoid bending, lifting, and straining for 2 weeks. * Resume daily activities after asking your surgeon. Final conclusion As usual, talk with your surgeon, convey what you want as the end result. Make sure you follow instructions carefully. Take rest for 2 weeks before resuming work. In one month period, your breasts will start looking better in shape and appearance. Check back with your cosmetic surgeon for any post-surgery difficulties.
What Do The Protests in Seoul Look Like Now?
This past Friday the Korean Constitutional Court (think of it as the US Supreme Court) ruled unanimously that Park Geun Hye should be officially impeached. Since most of the country wanted this (at her lowest I think she has a 10% approval rating) there were massive celebrations in the streets. There were musicians, free food stalls, and fireworks. Now of course there are plenty of (mostly elderly) people rioting and claiming that this is the end of democracy (when really its just an example of democracy working...) but they are in contained areas surrounded by police. As far as I know 2 people died and many more are injured but its been due to violence by the pro-Park side (for example, the rioters were trying to flip over a police bus and knocked over a speaker which fell and killed an elderly man who was part of the riot...) I walked through the celebration area the day after the announcement if you'd like to take a look and hear the sounds. Skip to 4:20 unless you want to see my friends new cafe opening party haha :) If you could all do me a really big favor: Please give this video a thumbs up on YouTube here. People have been leaving incredibly nasty comments targeting myself and my family (I have deleted and blocked most of them) and this video now has some of the most down-votes I've ever had on a video :/ That would really mean a lot! Thank you ㅠㅠ Korea now has to vote for a new president so that will be starting as we speak :)
