A giant lightning bolt struck the world’s tallest building
“To get the shot, photographer Michael Shainblum said that he spent more than four hours lying in the rain, until capturing just the moment that lightning struck.
Burj Khalifa is located in Dubai and measures at more than 2700 feet. No word yet on whether the tower suffered any damage from its brush with the storm.”

Wouldn’t say that I agree with the “reasonable standard”… realistically, that may be a bit simplistic, or facile.  Yet his message here is an important one.

 Politics is about choices, and within those choices, politics is about priorities. It’s about reconciling conflicting preferences wherever and whenever possibly based on fact.

A diver has a very personal moment of dejection at the bottom of the pool during the 2012 CCCA Swimming and Diving State Championships at East Los Angeles College Swim Stadium on Thursday, April 26, 2012 in Monterey Park, CA. (Photo by Suzanne Tylander © 2012) This particular photo represents an emotional moment rarely caught underwater. This particular diver was expected to win the entire event. The diver knew as soon as he hit the water his form was flawed and that he might have just lost it all. I was fortunate enough to witness this moment as it was unfolding underwater. I captured the sequence of emotion just a split second after he hit the water and began to sink to the bottom with a sense of defeat written in his body language This was the image I chose from the series. I have felt this emotion and disappointment before as many athletes do. My chance to capture it underwater was rare but beautiful. It is a moment no competitive athlete wants to relive but something important that many of us can relate to. It is raw and human and real.

Koalas are doomed to starve to death. At around six years of age, the koala’s chewing teeth begin to wear down and their chewing efficiency decreases. Eventually, the cusps disappear completely and the animal will die of starvation.

Omgosh.. No wonder why they are so grumpy

Howdy, friends. I haven’t posted in a while as I’ve been buried under deadlines as well as under the weather. We are all really excited with how Book 3 is turning out. As promised, it features a lot more Lin Beifong than Book 2, so I thought I’d share a cool screen shot of her. OK, I’m going to crawl back underneath my deadlines and cough.

… I used to do it very easily, but that was before I knew what having a friend was like. It’s so much easier not to know things sometimes. And to have french fries with your mom be enough.

Quote

The fear of prison concentrates the mind in a way the prospect of writing a check on a corporate account does not. “And from a moral standpoint,” Judge Rakoff writes, “punishing a company and its many innocent employees and shareholders for the crimes committed by some unprosecuted individuals seems contrary to elementary notions of moral responsibility.”
