Legally blind Ottawa girl, sees with high-tech glasses: ‘I went from just seeing nothing to seeing everything in my classroom’
Emma-Rose Gibson can see clearly no more than three centimetres in front of her, but a new device is allowing the nine-year-old Ottawa girl to watch TV.
The legally blind Grade 4 student, who is diagnosed with optic nerve hypoplasia, is one of the first users of the eSight eyewear, a pair of computerized glasses officially launched Tuesday in Toronto.
The device — made by Ottawa-based eSight Corporation — reconfigures images captured by its high-definition camera in a way to optimize a user’s vision. The processed images are then fed into two LED screens in front of the user’s eyes.
Gibson, who has been using the device since May, said it allows her to participate fully in class and grants her a degree of mobility she didn’t have before.

What the. This is great. 

Another step closer to Star Trek.

Many of these rates (before taxes, might I add) haven’t changed in 20 years. $100-$250 in 1994 aint the same as in 2014. This is why Comic Book Conventions for many comic illustrators, in many cases, are the lifeblood of their comic making (commissions, direct fan interaction books sales). 

Support your local mainstream or indie comic artist!!!!

CollegeHumor explains Net Neutrality

collegehumor:

image

I’m Adam.

-And I’m Emily.

We make “funny videos” on the Internet.

-But soon, we might not be able to.

That’s because…

image

…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.

That means that…

image

…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.

But…

image

\

…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.

If this happens…

image

…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.

Ten years from now…

image

…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.

Now, you might be thinking…

image

…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?

Unfortunately…

image

…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.

So…

image

…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.

In a few months…

image

…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.

Now that Winter Soldier is out on BluRay and I’ve seen it a couple more times, there’s only one thing that really bothers me about it.

Who the fuck is Nick Fury’s doctor?!

I know it’s director Joe Russo playing a cameo, but in story, who is this guy?! They make a huge deal out of Fury trusting no one, and yet this nameless guy seems pretty damn trusted and even familiar with Fury on a personal level.

The answer is probably ‘duh, he’s probably been Fury’s personal doctor for years, of course he’s trusted’, but am I too selfish in wishing this was some sort of Marvel cameo and not just a generic character? Sigh.

Not a lot of people are falling over themselves to be friends with Thor. They want to meet him, sure, get a picture of him, but anything beyond that seems beyond the reach of most people. Maybe it’s that he simply comes off as so out of place in the normal world, with his booming voice and muscles the size of small children. Putting a hoodie on an Asgardian doesn’t stop them from being, well, Asgardian. Or maybe it’s his tendency to get lost in cultural references, to misinterpret and be misinterpreted. Whatever it is, Thor doesn’t get invited to a lot of parties, no matter how friendly he is. And he is extraordinarily friendly. 

There are, however, a few exceptions to this rule. The first, of course, is Jane Foster and the odd little family of scientists she’s managed to gather. The second is Sam Wilson. 

Thor meets Sam a few days after Tony opens the new Avengers Tower. Jane’s been interviewed for a documentary on interstellar travel that’s going to air on PBS, and Thor is desperately trying to get the flatscreen TV Tony installed in the main rec room to work before it starts. The technology is antiquated and different than he’s used to, and he keeps mixing up the different remotes. He’s trying to order the television to reveal Jane’s film when someone else ambles into the room, talking on a cellular phone. 

"Mom, they’re the Avengers, I don’t think they want cookies," the stranger says, "No - don’t come ov - aw man." He holds the phone in his hand and shakes his head at it, not entirely angrily. Thor recognizes him as the Man With Wings who helped Steve Rogers during the disaster with SHIELD, except now he is without his wings. He sees Thor sitting on the floor surrounded by a pile of cords and remote controls, with the television flashing NO SIGNAL in front of him. Instead of laughing, he just smiles and puts his phone in his pocket. 

"Hey," he says, "Need a hand? I’m Sam." Thor smiles widely back and shakes Sam’s hand. 

"I would be grateful for any assistance," he replies. He hands Sam the scrap of paper Jane gave him with the title and time of the documentary written on it. Sam patiently shows him which remote he’s supposed to use, which button to press to get the correct input so the picture comes up. When the documentary comes on, he produces a bag of chips from his pocket and stays to watch, the two of them passing the snacks back and forth. Sam chatters to Thor about having wanted to be an astronaut when he was a kid, and how he might want to use "this whole Avenger thing" as a way to start an engineering camp for underserved kids. 

"You should speak to Jane," Thor tells him, "She runs a campaign for young Midgardian women who wish to study science." 

That gets them talking about Jane, and when she finally comes on screen to explain the Bifrost, both Sam and Thor applaud. 

"Woohoo! Go Doc Foster!" Sam cheers. 

Sam asks Thor questions (“So…do you guys have music in Asgard? What does it sound like?” “Have you ever been on a roller coaster?”), and after a while Thor starts to feel okay about asking Sam questions, too (“What does the Lady Darcy mean when she says ‘swag’?”). 

Thor decides that he likes this Son of Wil, the Man With Wings. He never gets impatient, or seems to think Thor is stupid, and when he laughs at something Thor says, Thor doesn’t feel left out of the joke. 

By the time the documentary is over, Sam gets a text from his mother telling him she’s arrived with cookies. 

Thor eats at least half of them.

penkipenguin replied to your post: no seriously i think ppl are reacting …

that’s exactly it. also, after the poll results came out nekoi posted a pic of mokona saying ‘黒様たいて~’ to a pissed off kurogane with a little arrow that said ‘plans to make fun of him like this for a while’ so it’s kind of an ongoing thing

excellent good

School’s back in session, which means the return of Let’s Speak English!

This is number 25, and it’s the first longform story! I still get gleeful when I really think about this night. So many other little things happened that I couldn’t include, which might make it into strips later.

For instance, Shinoda, one of the guitarists, threw his pick into the crowd and I snatched it and was able to have him sign it. I also got a chance to talk to Wowaka briefly and have him sign a CD. Also 50 other things!!

If you like crazy indie rock, you can check out Hitorie’s videos on youtube. I believe they’re all available in America now!

And I’m sure I’ll see ya soon with plenty more goofy shenanigans in Japan!

During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.

The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
