Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss published his first book, And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street , in 1937. It was rejected by 27 publishers before Vanguard Press picked it up. He even thought about burning it. Success does not come overnight, nor does it come easy.
This spring, thousands of talented, creative graduates will enter the thankless world of business with little to prepare them for the toll it may take on their self-esteem.
Milton Glaser said it best, “The real issue is not talent as an independent element, but talent in relationship to will, desire, and persistence. Talent without these things vanishes and even modest talent with those characteristics grows.”
Recent advancements in the production of living materials and in the logic behind the kinetics of robots have brought both fields closer together. These innovations have started to blur the lines of what we think of as “living.” Now robots made of parts that can communicate with each other act the same as living materials. They can be considered “alive” because they respond to changing information and conditions, much like living materials can.
This is Apparition, a project by Klaus Obermaier and Ars Electronica Futurelab that mixes real-time figure tracking with projection. The result is a dynamically choreographed duet of human and computer, or the marriage of physical movement and algorithmic animation. Because what you see isn’t just careful, pre-programmed staging. It’s real-time visual synthesis, based upon simulated physics.
With closer inspection, you’ll notice two layers to the simulation at work. The most obvious is the human component–a projection that maps perfectly to a silhouette, thanks to a camera tracking system by Hirokazu Kato. The second is the backdrop, which produces various visuals that respond to human movement–particles or vortices that ebb and flow of the stage performance.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration ( NASA ) defines the occurrence of 4 consecutive total lunar eclipses as a Tetrad. In the years 2014 – 2015 a rare Tetrad sequence will occur on the Jewish Holidays of Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles. In addition to the Tetrad occurrence, 2 total solar eclipses will complement the 4 lunar eclipses on the Jewish New Year and the Feast of Trumpets.
Passover: April 15, 2014 – Total eclipse visible in Australia, Pacific, Americas
Tabernacles: October 8, 2014 – Total eclipse visible in Asia, Australia, Pacific, Americas
Passover: April 4, 2015 – Total eclipse visible in Asia, Australia, Pacific, Americas
Tabernacles: September 28, 2015 – Total eclipse visible in East Pacific, Americas, Europe, Africa, West Asia ( visible from Jerusalem at moon-set)
Adar 29/Nisan 1 (Jewish New Year for Kings – Beginning of the religious calendar): March 20-21, 2015 Total eclipse visible in Iceland, Europe, North Africa, North Asia
Rosh Hashanah ( Feast of Trumpets) September 13, 2015 Partial eclipse visible in South Africa, South Indian, Antarctica
As far as blood red moons go, the Book of Revelation teaches the following:
12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Revelation 6:12-17).
So while Jesus would not return with a red moon, notice that the red moon appears just before the Day of the Lord begins–possibly as soon as the evening before (and perhaps up to a month or so before, cf. Revelation 8:1). Notice that a blood moon is also tied into the Day of the Lord in the Old Testament as well:
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. (Joel 2:31)
The amazing Bible prophecies concerning the connection between Israel & the United States when both nations turned away from Him.
The Tree of Hope, mentioned in this video, is now dying. It cannot be saved. This is another sign of judgement clearly indicated in Gods word. Though a strong & healthy species, many dead branches have been cut-off & now ropes are holding the tree up. 12 shrubs were also planted near the tree. The 4 closest shrubs (2 on each side) are now dead while the others are healthy & thriving. Nothing will grow next to the TOH, including weeds. The Tree of Hope has been cursed by God. Is it symbolic of what will happen to America?
