60 10 legged Arachnid?

*Camel spiders are classified as being a particular type of arachnid known as Solifugae. Their jaws contain several rows of sharp teeth that take up an entire third of their body size. These jaws contain teeth that can saw through hair and even bones, which is why they are a danger to even mammalian species. The extra set of legs that these spiders possess are also known as pedilaps. The tips of these pedilaps are sticky in order to allow them to climb vertical surfaces as well as to snatch mobile prey. Unlike most other Solifugae species, these spiders do not wait to ambush unsuspecting prey; instead, they skitter across the desert floor in search of live meals.

Posted by: nurse ratched at July 09, 2024 09:53 AM (o6bhz)

97 Apparently, those are mangrove roots. And about a different but similar work the New York Review gushes...

||The faceless figure is beautiful, if sinister—ideally proportioned, like Da Vinci’s Vitruvian man. His skin is a mosaic of marbled scrap paper, stained in a spectrum of pinks and grays. Five dark tendrils sprout from his head and branch across the canvas, forming a tangle of thick, tubular foliage over an underlying grid of purple rectangles. He holds one vine like a scepter; at his feet, two half-submerged figures take shoots into their mouths. Are they receiving sustenance? Or, in some peculiar way, sustaining the central figure’s power? Despite its tantalizing pictographic clarity, the image defies explanation.

Prominently featured in this year’s Venice Biennale, Felipe Baeza’s monumental work Por caminos ignorados, por hendiduras secretas, por las misteriosas vetas de troncos recién cortados (2020) exemplifies the uncanny yet alluring forms that have established the thirty-five-year-old artist as one of his generation’s most inventive mythmakers. Its title, borrowed from a poem by the gay Mexican modernist Xavier Villaurrutia, suggests obscure migrations: “By unknown||

Posted by: redridinghood at July 09, 2024 09:54 AM (NpAcC)

100 Critic's Spotlight...

Baeza’s crepuscular landscapes of blue and purple allude to the colors of the skies as migrants cross the U.S.-Mexico border at dawn. The deconstructed body parts in Baeza’s works writhe amid foliage, at times transforming into flora itself. In Emerging in Difference (2022), a male figure gazes intently at the viewer while thorny vines, forming the bottom half of a body, root in the land. Beneath the figure’s torso, amid the tangle of plant arms, is a single red hibiscus flower sprouting from a jaw bone. The image poses a solution to dire and fraught circumstances surrounding the queer brown migrant body, faced with the struggle to survive, exist, and be visible: Baeza’s scene of regeneration suggests a survival mechanism, where bodies camouflage into the land.

Like Ayón, the 34-year-old Baeza also uses the process of collagraphy—a collage-like process of adhering diverse materials onto a single substrate, creating an embossed, textural surface. The limbs of Baeza’s figures are dissected, scrutinized, while the faces are rapt with expressions of longing. The variously muted colored pieces of the bodies, such as those of the central nude figure in Por camino

108 Baeza is fucked in the cabeza.

Posted by: Mr Aspirin Factory, red heifer owner at July 09, 2024 09:57 AM (qZEuM)

109 such as those of the central nude figure in Por caminos ignorados, por hendiduras secretos, por las misteriosas vetas de troncos recien cortados (2020), are sanded and scratched, revealing layers of process. Black vines grow from the figure’s head, making it appear like a human heart. These symbolic veins feed the mouths of two men below, their bright red torsos stuck in a black rock underworld.

Sure, there’s a yearning for place in Baeza’s work. But there is also a yearning for transcendence, for a belonging beyond place. There’s the suggestion that these evanescent bodies are already of the Earth, the land, the natural world, and will forever be in flux. These “fugitive bodies,” as the artist calls them, refer to the constant metamorphic state that a queer brown migrant embodies as they traverse socially constructed borders, whether those imposed by the government or by hegemonic values.

135 Cheato had ZERO appearances in the last 10 days. Biden had 18. And Biden is the one wrapped in bubble wrap?

all we've seen of him was his little golf cart spew-fest. He sounded breathless and weak. His huffing and puffing has gotten worse. He's not mentally OR physically well.

A closed mouth gathers no feet. Apparently his handlers have managed to manage him for the present. Won't last long.

I'm betting he had some work done on his face or chin. Very vain person.

i think you're right! He disappeared for a while in 2016 and lost that massive bullfrog pouch under his chin at the same time. Any work done at his age is going to show. My guess says he'll want that neck tightened up and the eyes widened.

he's hiding from the epstein transcripts. the transcripts of epstein’s shady plea deal were released this week. tsf got immunity to testify against him. he confesses to his own sick acts. under oath.

142 I went to an art museum recently at a tony university.

And they had plenty of old art. And for the Eurasian art you can see people getting better and better at painting/sculpting/etc until around the Renaissance or a little later.

They also had old aboriginal art from Africa and the New World, which was about the same as the pre-bronze age art of Eurasia which makes sense as those people were living in pre-bronze age civilizations.

But then they added "modern art" from "indigenous artists" and it was obviously copying that low skill pre-bronze age art from the New World/Africa.

And...it was embarrassing. If I felt I was somehow representing "indigenous people" I would want to show I was just as good as those evil white Europeans were not that I couldn't learn anything from thousands of years of learning in the arts...

Though the one caveat here is the other modern art was mostly primitive in its talent as well.

New York is about enact a law that forces Visa & Mastercard to report gun and ammo sales to the state government

This is obviously a precursor for gun confiscation

And you know what can stop this invasion of privacy and 2A infringement?

The Credit Card Competition Act, which would break up the Visa/MC duopoly, allow for more competition, and then those CC companies could actually push back against tracking 2A purchases

Right now Visa & MC just march in line with anti-gun laws

The press is choosing to ignore him.

I think it's a conscious choice not because they want to focus on Joe but because it's an editorial decision to ignore Trump on social media, especially in relation to Truth Social.

216 A bit of task talk about the illegals that are registered to vote.

Yes, this is a real problem. The danger isn't they will vote, many won't because they don't want to jeapordize their citizenship chances. The danger is those are now real ballots that the Dems will harvest and fill in for them.

As always it comes down to numbers. The Dems likely have a number of these ballots they are counting on for fraud. Of course this is added into all the rest of their fraud tricks.

But ballots in California and Texas don't help them much. They need these ballots in MI and PA. While they may have 10 million illegals to pull from the real question is do they have enough in the states where they need them.

My opinion is this is a lot of the panic we are seeing. Trump's poll numbers are making the math hard, if Trump really is ahead by 5 in PA, the Dems could be short on the available fraudulent ballots the need to fortify.

This becomes a lot harder for them if Trump turns out low propensity voters like he has in the last 2 elections.

As always, YMMV

In 2020 there were thousands of people told "you already voted by mail" when they showed up to vote in person.

You can do such things as indexing but it often obscures more than reveals. About all you can say is that it can be useful for trend analysis but not the actual numbers. Aka ordinal level of variables. Trump is most likely leading but how much nationally cannot be figured out with the data presented because a) each poll is only one variable, and b) they do not share the same underlying error distributions due to differences in sampling frames, questions, etc.

Meta analysis is a thing but works best when you have studies that a) use similar if not the same variables and b) you have known error distributions. One cannot get more precision by aggregating various studies--you are limited by your least accurate measurements.

1. Biden gets the nomination.
2. Donors are pulled aside and "how elections work" is explained to them along with "how unfortunate it would be to be on the wrong side of the President".
3. Money rolls in.

278 True. But both sides still dutifully line up to vote R or D no matter what. It’s why both parties lie with impunity.

One of the more fascinating things about our modern political moment is that historically politicians lied so they could get their pay outs BUT they tried to make sure to not screw things up too badly because they were afraid of losing office.

Since 2012 and especially 2020 though the politicians have no problem intentionally and clearly making life worse for most of the populace...

282 Colleges aim to increase enrollment by admitting students who didn’t apply

https://tinyurl.com/2s498pym

Tracey Sheetz, vice president of enrollment, told the newspaper the college adopted the new method to “meet students where they are today.”

“They’re no longer the students who are going to sit and fill out a five-page paper application with pencil. We’ve got to make it a smoother process and more accessible,” Sheetz said.


Yes, one certainly wants to attract top-flight students who are deterred by a 5-page application. They should have no trouble with college level work.

University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor Taylor Odle told the newspaper that the practice boosts enrollment and saves money both for the student and the school.

“When we think about the application as a structural barrier, it reduces that barrier for students who are most likely to fall prey to that barrier…” the education policy professor said. “


Gee, I wonder who they mean? It's just DEI by another name.

Ditto on the post-prandial strolls. I hear that since the lower leg muscles act as a "second heart" and assist with blood return, they use a lot of sugar fuel and thus your body doesn't need to produce as much insulin. Even diabetics who use insulin need less if they walk after meals.

You can't achieve anything by voting, and there are no consequences to the ruling class for bad governance.

People just vote so they can feel like "their" "side" "won" something, and so they can pretend this is still the functioning system that created our prosperity and safety and not the abomination it clearly is.

I think of statistics as an artificial world--ideally it explains most of what you observe in the real world but there is always some simplifications of the statistical model that makes its relationship to accurately measuring and predicting real world events imperfect. Sometimes the imperfections of the components you choose outweigh whatever results that you obtain from such a model and it produces either no statistically valid results or worse--gibberish.

357 Is FJB now an albatross around the Democraps neck?

An albatross is a large, magnificent seabird capable of soaring incredible distances without rest. When young albatrosses are old enough to leave the nest (at about 5 1/2 months), they spend the next three years at sea. They will sleep and eat at sea, not touching land for years!

Imagine the bird and Coleridge both immortalized in the English language by a poem.

At best, they are imperfect ways to gauge popular opinion about a topic.

Most of the time, they're badly done narrative forming.

Especially these days. We live in an Empire of Lies.

365 I don’t think I anyone will claim pols are perfect predictors. To me their value is in showing trends. Is Tru p up 6? Maybe. Or maybe it’s 8 or 4. But I think when every poll out there says Trunp ahead, it’s fairly certain he is.

The counter to that of course will be 2016. And the counter to that counter is at the very end of the race, polls tightened in key states. Which goes back to my point of showing trends. Trump had the momentum at the right time and ended up winning.

The tightening happening every single election season doesn't tell me that the electorate suddenly starts changing their minds but that polling goes from narrative building to trying to get it right in the final stretch.

But even that is falling apart.

2020 was off by 7.

I am sure you know that there is a distinct difference between trying to analyze human affairs and those of uncaring physical variables. An H2O molecule that cycles through ionization and rebounding does not care that I analyze its patterns. Interviewing people changes their output often in unknown ways.

Social sciences are as a result in far poorer circumstances in applying statistical models than physical and material sciences.

This is fantastic. The Teacher's Union staff has its own union. That union is striking against the Teacher's union and picketing the NEA convention to raise their avg salary from $124K to $133K. I'm sure the NEA members would love those salaries.
