Mining Moon dust and shooting it into space could deflect just enough sunlight to stave off the worst of global warming, theorize three astrophysicists. A 10-billion-kilogram dust cloud in space, invisible to people on the ground, would block the equivalent of about six days of sunlight on Earth each year. The dust would be pushed out of position within a week, so regular top-ups would be required. Scientists have called this ‘moonshot’ idea “quite irresponsible” and “fun, scientifically interesting speculation” that is unlikely to be put into practice.

Where did all the green cars go?
In the 1990s, 1 out of every 20 cars was a beautiful forest green. Now it’s one out of every 10,000 cars. What are they doing with all the green paint?

(...)"And she's buying a stairway to heaven
There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know, sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven (...) "

A magnitude 7.8 earthquake early Monday killed nearly 300 people in 10 towns in southeastern. Turkey and more than 230 in Syria. The toll is rising sharply as rescue teams dig desperately for survivors in hundreds of collapsed buildings. In Syria, the worst hit were Aleppo, Latakia, Hama and Tartus provinces where the healthcare system is “overwhelmed” by the injured and some hospitals have been damaged by the quake. A maternity hospital in Afrin was evacuated with at least five deaths.

Since the Earth spins and spins much faster than a human being is able to do, even in the craziest dance, it is no wonder that many princesses lose their crowns. And what's the cheesy passer-by's cap here? This and sometimes it breaks the head and even the ass. So it is logical that nothing is in its place as a result of these turbulences, because it cannot be. Despite this obviousness, people argue and even fight to death about having the right to put everything in its place. As if they knew the original place. Therefore, in the event of a sudden stop, the dispute could intensify even between the princesses and those lifting the cap from the pavement, hurrying to arrange everything in their own way. So better let it spin.

His melting-clock imagery mocks the rigidity of chronometric time. The watches themselves look like soft cheese—indeed, by Dali s own account they were inspired by hallucinations after eating Camembert cheese. In the center of the picture, under one of the watches, is a distorted human face in profile. The ants on the plate represent decay on a molecular level. They too represent the passage of time. The plate represents the body as a whole, and the transformation of organic matter to dust. The hourglass represents time, the cause of entropy, as well as the time of decay, decay of molecules, and time. In this context, time becomes the key theme of the film.
The clock and the box in the center of the picture are also interrelated. The clock serves as a symbol of fate and the box as a symbol of freedom. The box represents the material world and the wall behind it, with its images of decay, represents the spiritual realm. This connection is similar to that of the young man with the iron lungs in _Cabaret_. But whereas the audience member in _Cabaret_ has a choice between choosing life and returning to the world.
Prompt: At that time, the Dadaist movement was about as unknown as socialism. Dadaism was taking shape during the War and right through the war until it disappeared after 1918. The term Dada is derived from German. It is the first example of a Dada work, or Dadaist art, and there are several examples of Dada.
A Dadaist work is something of no consequence, without a clear concept or form. A Dada work is nonsense. It is pointless, and the object is not supposed to have a meaning. It is useless. For instance, they used to make large graffiti: "1. In order to not kill, it is necessary to kill".2. Or: "3. The fist will always hit the head, the fist will always hit the head". The first sentence is a proverb, but it could also be a recipe for a philosophical treatise. The second sentence would be about the significance of the relationship between the fist and the head. It is a statement about the relationship between the human body and the human head. These two statements form a picture, or a painting, which gives the impression of a nonsense. Dada was the answer to the question: "How is the human mind organized?"

The more we think about the situation, the more we can see that no military action is the answer, that the military solution to this crisis would be a disaster. More military intervention would mean more fighting and loss

One of the most famous line drawings, drawn in his early 20s. When Picasso was 32. It's a drawing of a man (or possibly a couple of men) being wrestled by a pair of giant gorillas. It was drawn in 1950, a couple of years after the biggest known group of gorillas was captured by the Congo Congo Congo wars, and put into a zoo, they were put on display, and you can see how they are bound, all weight-matched, and the gorillas are attempting to break free.
Note the very human-looking gorilla, all the fur, the paint on his fur, the details, including the orange face paint and blue.
