Hidden Illustrations Revealed Under UV Lighting by Canada’s Newest Passport Designs

by Lavinia

Passport Designs
For those interested in design and its infinite possibilities, have a look at these Canadian passports and their surprising security feature! Canada’s newest passport designs may look common at a first glance ( with the information and photo area, along with the typical numbered pages), but if you place one under UV lighting, everything changes. Security additions that are revealed by black light are common, but this is something special and you have probably already understood why.
ideas passport3
Take a look at the gallery below and head here to see original photos taken of Canadian passports. What a strange revelation the images turn out to be: each standard-looking page of the passport (including historical figures, well-known monuments and national symbols) is added pattern and color, resulting in miniature artistic works, only visible under a ‘black light’ or an ultra-violet light source. While the new colorful passports have been in use since July 2013, the media hasn’t “celebrated” their design until recently. We thought we would share the news further and see if they create buzz in the design industry as well. How do you find them?

NASA’s Most Shocking Image

This image is a 1.5… *BILLION* pixel photograph of the Andromeda Galaxy.

To view the image in all its glory go here.

NASA is the coolest thing that’s ever happened.

alltogetherterrible oh gosh

I zoomed in and I was like “yeah right” while it loaded and then my jaw actually dropped 

holy shit

i mean i knew theoretically what this was supposed to look like, but i didn’t actually expect to see it

but then when i zoomed in, all the noise turned into ACTUAL STARS, that you can see individually

good job, NASA

This is why the world needs to start caring about Boko Haram

As the world watched in horror while two gunmen slaughtered 12 people at the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris last week, a massacre of a different kind was happening halfway across the world.

In the Nigerian town of Baga, Boko Haram insurgents carried out one of the bloodiest attacks in the group’s history, killing an estimated 2,000 people. Most of the victims were women, children and elderly people who couldn’t escape after fighters drove into the town firing rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons at local residents.

"The worsening conflict in northern Nigeria already has suffered more casualties this year than the world’s most publicized contemporary wars."

Americans are so sad about 9/11 (and they should be) but they hardly bat an eye when many more people die in some far away place that has brown or black people. Americans need to care about people everywhere, not just in their white countries.

I stopped telling myself that I’m lost.

I’m not.

I’m on a road with no destination, I’m just driving with hope that I’ll find a place that I like and I’ll stay there.

I’m not lost, I’m on my way.

We all pay taxes.

shesrebecca:

Does it bother you that approximately $40 a year is taken from your paycheck to pay for “safety net” programs like food stamps? If so, you should be down right enraged to know that $6,000 is taken from your check so that companies like GE & Enron don’t have to pay their fair share in taxes. Also, it means you’re an asshole.

faraashah:

westerners are obsessed with the idea of happiness as if it’s a constant state of being. happiness comes in moments. you don’t “achieve” happiness. you experience it along with every other emotion on the spectrum. if you spend your life chasing this constructed idea of happiness you will never even be remotely content. work on being whole and feeling everything while increasing the happy moments. stop trying to be a “happy person.” just be a person.

syndullas:

Be more like the super sweet complimentary girl you’ve met in every club bathroom. Tell other women you like their outfits, or that their eyeliner is on point, or that they have a walk like a valkyrie. Life is too short and too hard not to soul bond with a stranger over her bombass shoes.

I FEEEEEL THIS.

"The only thing “free” about so-called free time is that it doesn’t cost the boss anything. Free time..."

“The only thing “free” about so-called free time is that it doesn’t cost the boss anything. Free time is mostly devoted to getting ready for work, going to work, returning from work, and recovering from work. Free time is a euphemism for the peculiar way labor, as a factor of production, not only transports itself at its own expense to and from the workplace, but assumes primary responsibility for its own maintenance and repair.”

The Psychology of Clutter - WSJ

by mollyblock
The Psychology of Clutter - WSJ:

The Psychology of Clutter - from The Wall Street Journal

Difficulty letting go of your stuff can also go hand in hand with separation anxiety, compulsive shopping, perfectionism, procrastination and body-image issues. And the reluctance to cope can create a vicious cycle of avoidance, anxiety and guilt.

In most cases, however, psychologists say that clutter can be traced to what they call cognitive errors—flawed thinking that drives dysfunctional behaviors that can get out of hand.

Among the most common clutter-generating bits of logic: “I might need these someday.” “These might be valuable.” “These might fit again if I lose (or gain) weight.”

"We all have these dysfunctional thoughts. It’s perfectly normal," Dr. Rego says. The trick, he says, is to recognize the irrational thought that makes you cling to an item and substitute one that helps you let go, such as, "Somebody else could use this, so I’ll give it away."

Maybe it’s brave to quit your job to go paint in Peru for a year, but it’s also brave to work two jobs to help pay for your mom’s medical bills. It’s smart to stay at the law firm until your loans are paid off. It’s OK to only tolerate your job but love your hobbies, because as soon as passions are turned into careers, you risk turning love into work.

So you don’t love your job — who gives a shit?

Are you happy with yourself? Are you happy with the way you treat people? Are you happy with your life?

Reminder: You are under no obligation to look pretty.

fortfox:

fandomsandfeminism:

Not when you are laying around the house, not when you go to the grocery store, not when you sit in a classroom, not when you go to the gym. You are never obligated to get dressed up just so you are pretty for others.

Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in the world as a woman. 

[Paraphrased From: Source]

this writing meant so much to me when I first found it and was a baby feminist.
PRETTY IS NOT YOUR RENT AS A WOMAN.

As close to heaven – Conrad Jon Godly Paintings


Just stumbled upon these incredible abstract paintings of mountains and five minutes later had bought Conrad Jon Godly ’s book Works + -

Perhaps it’s just my insatiable appetite for mountains but these images really speak to me, and I’m going to do everything I can to have one hanging near my fireplace with 1 year. 

Based in Switzerland around Chur , one would assume the artist has plenty of subjects to choose from, but rather chooses to paint abstractly, rather than subjectively.
