Setting The Barre

DSC02973DSC02975lippitstageDSC02976

After a few weekends away from Providence, it was such a treat to attend the Lippitt Park Farmer’s Market this morning.  Strolling in the sun surrounded by Providence’s youngest inhabitants, their hip parents, friendly dogs of all shapes and sizes sniffing their hello’s, and local vendors offering up fresh veggies, fruits, flowers, homemade granola, applesauce, locally caught seafood, handcrafted jewelry and art always reminds me how much I love this little community of mine.  The East Side really is a special place.  An added bonus?  Today also turned out to be Providence’s Summit Music Festival, with big white tents housing sit-down service for a pop-up sandwich hut (how adorable are the recycled bottle flower arrangements?), craft tables, and a performance by one of my favorite local bands, The Ricecakes.  Lucky me!

“We are you. We are the madness that lurks within you all, begging to be free at every moment in your deepest animal mind. We are what you hide from in your beds every night. We are what you sedate into silence and paralysis when you go to the nocturnal haven where we cannot tread.” ~ The Russian Sleep Experiment (Creepypasta)

Building an analog whistle detection device

Hackaday

Hackaday readers may remember a whistle detection device that I [limpkin] designed some time ago. As [Kevin] saw the new Staff roll call, he discovered this project and wanted to make his version of it.

In contrast with the original Whistled where all the signal processing is done in an ARM Cortex m4 microcontroler, [Kevin] uses discrete components, operational amplifiers and an Arduino Uno to detect someone’s whistle. In his video (embedded below), he goes into great lengths to explain how his circuit works along with the theory behind it. In his setup, his microphone’s signal is amplified, passed through a 1KHz-3KHz passive band-pass filter to a non-inverting amplifier with a 1000x gain (!) and finally to a voltage comparator. The Arduino measures the frequency of the signal coming out from the comparator and triggers a relay if the whistle is a ramp-up / ramp-down.

If you want to make…

My Lazy Sunday

I couldn’t resist, he to cute.

Cauldrons and Cupcakes

“A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content.”

~ Proverb

I had intended to come up with something fabulous for today’s blog. But the truth is all I can think about is making a pot of tea, cracking my knuckles, and sitting down to work on my pirates and fairies story.

It’s one of my favourite things to do – to wander off into my imagination and see what unfolds as I greet my characters and find out what they’ve been up to in my absence.

And I know they’ve been busy!

So this morning I’m giving myself the gift of a few hours of uninterrupted writing. I hope you understand…

Don’t forget to meet me back here tomorrow – ready for the first installment of my Working To Create Positive Change program. It’s going to be wonderful. 🙂

But until then, I hope you find a little time to work towards…

Bacon Liver & Onions

365 Days of Bacon

BACON, LIVER & ONIONS:

cramping yo gramma’s style.

(wait, great-gramma’s style)

Either way, they’d both be proud.  🙂

If you don’t like liver, I understand. But if you merely think you don’t like liver… well, reconsider, dangit.

Organ meats — liver in particular — used to be considered super-nourishing and were valued more than steak. AKA, this recipe is another excuse for you to eat bacon and call it “healthy.”

(I mean, really, how can you argue that logic?)

 

BACON, LIVER & ONIONS

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pkg bacon
  • 1 lb liver
  • 2 onions, chopped in half then sliced thinly in 1/2 rings

(optional)

  • garlic, chopped
  • salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Fry bacon in large pan, remove bacon when crispy, set aside (in freezer, if you like it extra crispy). Leave the bacon grease in the pan!
  2. Fry chopped onions in the bacon grease, about 10 minutes, until soft and caramelized.
  3. Meanwhile, slice thawed liver…

We are going shopping

hovercraftdoggy

American-born Frankfurt-based artist Mike Bouchet takes the common shopping cart and reapproriates it, transforming it into an object of leisure and design. Bouchet alters the frames of zinc plated steel carts, cutting off the sides of the buggies and modifying their front and back panels by bending them backwards or forwards to achieve certain angles to create lawn chairs / sun loungers. The carts' childseats are remounted to serve as headrests, allowing one to readjust it to a comfortable height. there is a slight spring to the design, reinforced at major stress points in order to retain structural integrity over time and use. The result is a set of five seating objects, each outfitted with an outdoor, weatherproof, polyester foam cushion exhibiting different patterns. (via designboom)

Experiments in Alchemy: The Savile Files Mega-Graph (alpha release)

Society X

Savile-Mega-Graph

Over the last few weeks we have been experimenting with Alchemy in our laboratories as well as other forms of techno-wizardry.

AlchemyAPI is a Natural Language Processing service that automagically picks out entities from a block of text and semantically tags them. It can do this with people, places, companies, organisations, job titles and a variety of other categories.

It also keeps a word-count of each entity which we were able to use to size each node in the graph to represent the importance of the protagonists. An experimental feature attempts to work out the ‘sentiment’ of the entity as it appears in the context of the text.

The graph is based on the first 3380 pages of the ‘Savile OUTED as a PAEDO‘ mega-thread on the David Icke Forums. For those that have never visited the thread it is a bit like an online Paedopedia Brittanica that…
