Hundreds of Birds I Long to See

 Hundred Birds I see

I bring then into my artwork

 

Admiring different types

Different shapes

And gorgeous colors

 

I pick them out

One by one

Multiplying in hundreds

Filling in the page of my artwork

Of Malcolm X Shabazz High School

Students’ Peace Comments

 

Where are the birds now?

I looked out at my garden

Only to see little sparrows

Eating dried seeds

Which I left on the plants

For the little birds

In the winter time

 

“Ing come!!!”

John calls

“I see two red cardinals

In the backyard”

 

Quickly I run to the window

“I see only one on the ground”

 

“The other is on the tree”

My husband shows it to me

 

It is exciting

Viewing red cardinals

Which I hardly see

 

Where are the hundreds of other birds

That I copied into my artwork?

 

I wish to see them in the flesh

Wherever they are

I love them

Longing to see them someday

A red cardinal in our backyard Garden

Sparrows were eating Dried Seeds in our backyard garden, Downtown Newark New Jersey

Two sparrows on the butterfly bush tree in our backyard garden

A few days ago I was thinking of working on the artwork of Malcolm X Shabazz High School students’ Peace comments for my peace project.  In the early afternoon of that same day, my husband called me

“Ing come to see two red cardinals in the garden.”

But I saw one red cardinal on the ground.

Where is the other one?”  I asked

“It is on the tree” My husband replied

I watched one of them eating bread.  Then suddenly they were gone.  I stayed for a while wishing the red cardinals would come back.  But they never came.

 Luckily a few sparrows came to the garden eating dried seeds that I left them on the plants.  I took some pictures and video, after while all the sparrows flew away.

 Loving nature, loving birds, watching them through my bedroom window in a small backyard garden in downtown Newark, NJ inspired me to incorporate bird’ pictures into my artwork.

Thanks to the National Geographic and other websites that posted the pictures of the birds which I never knew or saw before.  If my assumption is right, children in cities probably never see some of these birds that I copied into my artwork.  I hope the students at Malcolm X Shabazz High School and children everywhere will enjoy seeing different types of birds.  Hopefully it will be a challenge for students to find the names and habitats of the birds.

 This may helps students develop an interest in exploring more about nature.  Such an interest can bring concern for conservation, preserving the forests and sanctuaries for birds, bees, butterflies and all animals that inhabit with us on earth.

Ing’s Peace Project

Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Monday, January 19, 2015

Thanks to Linda Leonard-Nevels , School Library Media Specialist of Malcolm X Shabazz High School, Newark, New Jersey.  She came to our store.  After her shopping I took advantage to explain to her about my Peace Project.  Linda came back on Friday, October 1. 2014 and took six of my Peace Project posters to distribute to the teachers in her school for their students to write comments on my peace posters.  She returned three of my Peace posters with student comments on Friday, December 12, 2014.

Working on artwork for Malcolm X Shabazz High School’s Students comments on “What does Peace mean to you?” I realized that this month on Monday, January 19 is Dr. Martin Luther King’s Day.  I recalled that Dr. King received a Nobel Peace Prize on 1964.  I am sure these students know this.  I did research on Dr. King’s acceptance speech.  I was impressed with his speech.  Lately there is inceasing conflict between the black youth and police.  So I decided to do some artwork on Dr. King’s Nobel Prize Acceptance speech in the same project of the Malcolm X Shabazz High School’s Students Peace comments.

 I hope that young people today realize that it takes time for human progress and it takes all generations to be aware of human rights and put effort into improving the transition for all humanity to reach equality and harmony in our world.

Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech

December 10, 1964
Oslo, Norway

I accept the Nobel Prize for Peace at a moment when twenty-two million Negroes of the United States of America are engaged in a creative battle to end the long night of racial injustice. I accept this award in behalf of a civil rights movement which is moving with determination and a majestic scorn for risk and danger to establish a reign of freedom and a rule of justice.

I am mindful that only yesterday in Birmingham, Alabama, our children, crying out for brotherhood, were answered with fire hoses, snarling dogs and even death. I am mindful that only yesterday in Philadelphia, Mississippi, young people seeing to secure the right to vote were brutalized and murdered. And only yesterday more than 40 houses of worship in the State of Mississippi alone were bombed or burned because they offered a sunctuary to those who would not accept segregation.

I am mindful that debilitating and grinding poverty afflicts my people and chains them to the lowest rung of the economic ladder.

Therefore, I must ask why this prize is awarded to a movement which is beleaguered and committed to unrelenting struggle; to a movement which has not won the very peace and brotherhood which is the essence of the Nobel Prize.

After contemplation, I conclude that this award which I receive on behalf of that movement is profound recognition that nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time — the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression.

Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts. Negroes of the United States, following the people of India, have demonstrated that nonviolence is not sterile passivity, but a powerful moral force which makes for social transformation. Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace, and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood.

If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. The tortuous road which has led from Montgomery, Alabama, to Oslo bears witness to this truth. This is a road over which millions of Negroes are travelling to find a new sense of dignity.

This same road has opened for all Americans a new ear of progress and hope. It has led to a new Civil Rights bill, and it will, I am convinced, be widened and lengthened into a superhighway of justice as Negro and white men in increasing numbers create alliances to overcome their common problems.

I accept this award today with an abiding faith in America and an audacious faith in the future of mankind. I refuse to accept despair as the final response to the ambiguities of history. I refuse to accept the idea that the “isness” of man’s present nature makes him morally incapable of reaching up for the eternal “oughtness” that forever confronts him.

I refuse to accept the idea that man is mere flotsom and jetsom in the river of life unable to influence the unfolding events which surround him. I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.

I refuse to accept the cynical notion that nation after nation must spiral down a militaristic stairway into the hell of thermonuclear destruction. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant.

I believe that even amid today’s motor bursts and whining bullets, there is still hope for a brighter tomorrow. I believe that wounded justice, lying prostrate on the blood-flowing streets of our nations, can be lifted from this dust of shame to reign supreme among the children of men.

I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, men other-centered can build up. I still believe that one day mankind will bow before the altars of God and be crowned triumphant over war and bloodshed, and nonviolent redemptive goodwill will proclaim the rule of the land.

“And the lion and the lamb shall lie down together and every man shall sit under his own vine and fig tree and none shall be afraid.”

I still believe that we shall overcome.

This faith can give us courage to face the uncertainties of the future. It will give our tired feet new strength as we continue our forward stride toward the city of freedom. When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds and our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, we will know that we are living in the creative turmoil of a genuine civilization struggling to be born.

Today I come to Oslo as a trustee, inspired and with renewed dedication to humanity. I accept this prize on behalf of all men who love peace and brotherhood. I say I come as a trustee, for in the depths of my heart I am aware that this prize is much more than an honor to me personally.

Every time I take a flight I am always mindful of the man people who make a successful journey possible — the known pilots and the unknown ground crew.

So you honor the dedicated pilots of our struggle who have sat at the controls as the freedom movement soared into orbit. You honor, once again, Chief (Albert) Luthuli of South Africa, whose struggles with and for his people, are still met with the most brutal expression of man’s inhumanity to man.

You honor the ground crew without whose labor and sacrifices the jet flights to freedom could never have left the earth.

Most of these people will never make the headlines and their names will not appear in Who’s Who. Yet when years have rolled past and when the blazing light of truth is focused on this marvelous age in which we live — men and women will know and children will be taught that we have a finer land, a better people, a more noble civilization — because these humble children of God were willing to suffer for righteousness’ sake.

I think Alfred Nobel would know what I mean when I say that I accept this award in the spirit of a curator of some precious heirloom which he holds in trust for its true owners — all those to whom beauty is truth and truth beauty — and in whose eyes the beauty of genuine brotherhood and peace is more precious than diamonds or silver or gold.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

Space Exploration and Other Scientific Inventions 2014

Space Exploration and Other Scientific Inventions 2014

I have to thanks BBC News and others news organizations for posting the education information, especially information on science and technology.  I enjoyed reading the articles and viewing the photographs on An amazing year in space exploration, The year in aviation, Weird and wonderful images seen in 2014, The first Space Photographers, What the inside of a spaceship might really look like, 4D Printing, building that can change over time, First New Antibiotic In 30 Years Could Prove Crucial In Fight Against Superbugs, Scientists Train Immune Cells To Destroy Hidden HIV, Watch Bill Gates Drink Water That Was Sewage 5 Minutes Before, Vultures: Halting killer diseases and others.

After I finished reading I felt very good and happy to know how far humans have progressed.  I appreciate all the scientists doing research to discover things that we did not know before and also thanks to a lot of people that are involved in the discovery.  It takes time and requires lot of people in order for us to be able to benefit from the results of hard work and dedication of the researchers.  It is not only the time and people that are involved in the discoveries, also needed is money to finance the operations.  The funds for the operations are beneficial for all the population.  We know that what we spend is for a good cause and for all mankind. But we still have certain groups of people spending a lot of money to buy weapons to kill each others.  The money is spent unwisely, and the loss of many people that can be educated and help to do research to benefit themselves and others is regretful and unproductive.  

The imams, rabbis, ministers, priests, monks and other religious leaders who have many followers are very important to society.  They all can guide their followers to do good or do harm to themselves and others.  They are all teachers who want to give knowledge to their followers and see them progress and grow as good human beings living together in harmony and peaceful coexistence.

There is inequality in this world in the present as in the past, but a lot of us are trying to improve and we have progressed.  We still can talk and fight for equal rights but we should do this in nonviolent ways. Fighting and killing each other cannot improve situations, it can only make things worse in Syria and other places that use violence as a policy.  How much destruction can the Syrians bring to the country and people?  There is no end in sight and this causes war to widen to other countries.  The Syrians lost everything. Destruction of the country has left everything in ruins including most of the houses and beautiful buildings with hundreds of thousands of people killed.

 Who is going to win?  No one will win and Syrians will go on fighting until nothing is left.  Only hatred and revenge will remain for the survivors and the younger generation.

Please, imams, rabbis, ministers, priests, monks and other religious leaders and teachers, teach your students and followers to educate themselves and contribute knowledge to others. We still can argue and fight for equal rights but in nonviolent and peaceful ways.  As Gandhi fought for his country’s independence with nonviolence methods he also gained the respect of the British and people all over the world.

I watched, The Learning World, program on the EuroNews.  It showed that if we are together, sharing with one another and treating each human being as an equal on earth then we can achieve great things together.

From e-books to crowd sourcing information, education is seeing one of the biggest shake-ups since the advent of the printing press. Open sources of knowledge are opening doors to education all over the world. This week we visited the UK, Greece, Egypt and America to see how different projects aim to open up the world of knowledge.

In a high tech world, what is more practical – buying a book, going to a library, or simply browsing online to get the information you need without paying a penny? What about if all the academic books you needed were also just one click away? Academics in Cambridge have launched Open Book to make the top academic texts available for free and since the economic crisis they’re finding huge success in Greece.

In Egypt some university students are taking part in the Wikipedia Education Program where they are learning how to use and contribute to the Arabic edition of the world’s biggest free online encyclopaedia and also fighting gender bias into the bargain.

Gamers turn into neuroscientists in the US with Eyewire, a crowd sourcing game created by scientists at MIT in Boston. By connecting online, players are not just enjoying themselves but they are contributing to a scientific discovery, helping MIT scientists to understand how the brain sees movement.”

Remember life is precious and life is short.  Together we can survive in harmony and achieve happy lives while we are on our planet.

4D Printing, building that can change over time

 

What if buildings could adapt their shape and form – without any other input from us? Architect Skylar Tibbits says 4D printing could make materials that build themselves.

The way we build our structures has become more and more sophisticated. But the materials we build them from are static, waiting for us to fit them to the required shape.

What if they could assemble themselves – and even change form if they needed to? The emerging technology of 4D printing – where 3D-printed material changes shape over time – means we may be able to build things that can adapt to our use or the environment around them, says MIT’s Skylar Tibbits.

Tibbits believes this technology could lead to more resilient, lighter structures – ones which can respond to the world around them.

First New Antibiotic In 30 Years Could Prove Crucial In Fight Against Superbugs

January 8, 2015 | by Janet Fang

A new antibiotic extracted from soil bacteria can kill a huge range of disease-causing microbes, and so far, no resistance has been detected in the exposed bacteria. If resistance does build up, it’ll likely take several decades to emerge. The findings are published in Nature this week.

In a global public health crisis, antibiotic resistance is spreading among pathogenic microbes faster than researchers can develop new compounds for us to combat them. In hospitals, MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), for example, causes deadly bloodstream infections.

In the hunt for new antimicrobial products, a large international team led by Kim Lewis of Northeastern University screened 10,000 compounds isolated from previously uncultured soil bacteria. These valuable resources, which were overmined by the 1960s, were previously considered “unculturable” because they don’t adapt well to life in a petri dish. So Lewis and colleagues developed what they call iChip, which sorts individual bacterial cells into single chambers, and after the device is buried in the ground, several molecules are allowed to diffuse into the iChip, Nature News explains. This allows the bacteria to thrive in a more natural setting. “Essentially we’re tricking the bacteria,” Lewis tells Los Angeles Times. “They start growing and form colonies.”

They discovered a compound — called teixobactin, extracted from Eleftheria terrae — that causes the breakdown or prevents the synthesis of bacterial cell walls. In tests with mice, teixobactin has shown to be very lethal against bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus, TB-causing Mycobacterium tuberculous, and Clostridium difficile, which causes inflammation of the colon.

An existing antibiotic called vancomycin (used to kill C. difficile) operates in a similar way, and it took 30 years for bacteria to become resistant to it. The team thinks it’ll take even longer for genetic resistance to teixobactin to emerge. Clinical trials could start in two years.

In Africa, America, Asia, Europe and every country

On earth

I will see children enjoying

Eating figs, pomegranates, apples, plums

And other fruits that nature provides

Let us be really happy together

Let us be kind to one another without greed

Let us help one another without selfishness

Let us respect each other for what we believe

Let us be joyful with each other without revengeful

Let us be really happy together

Without each other we are nothing

Together with our knowledge

We can help to cure diseases

Help to solve pollution problems

Only together will we survive

To see our children having a bright future

In a happy and peaceful world

Then we will really have

A Happy New Year for All

Our art gallery and my studio was filled with jasmine perfume when they were in full bloom in the month of December 2014.  There were more than a hundred little white jasmine flowers.  I was very happy to see them bloom in this cold winter climate.  I love the fragrance of Jasmine, it reminds me of my home in Thailand.

  If you would like to know how I produced these sculptures please view the video on YouTube.
