Kai at the Maker Space room, in the Mezzanine, of the Newark Museum on Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

The lady who takes care of the room showed Kai the big foam blocks that he can build something from.

Kai constructed a form of a tall building.

Suddenly, after Kai finished his building, he knocked his building down.  He seemed to enjoy it.  I think he was acting like Godzilla who likes to destroy buildings by knocking them down.  Kai loves to watch Godzilla movies.  He goes to John and asks him to turn on the Godzilla movies.  I have to talk to John about this instance.

Kai drove into his building and then he lied flat on the floor.

Kai wanted to play hide and seek in the hiding place.

Time to go home, Kai put the foam blocks back where they belong, but still wanted to play for last time.  He said “I will build the chair to sit on.”

Kai was sitting happily on his throne.

Ms. Fran Garrido, Early Childhood Coordinator gave me the information about their activities for children.

Monarch Butterfly, Saturday, July 20, 2019

Poem and Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

Oh!  Monarch Butterfly!!!

You come to visit me again this year

You are the first one

I see today on Saturday, July 20, 2019

You look lovely as always

We are ready for you

With my beautiful purple butterfly bush flowers

All in full bloom

The nectar you need to survive to fly to your mate

And for you to lay your eggs

Your little ones of the next generation

The nectar is here for you

Thanks for fertilizing the flowers

Some will produce fruits

For human to consume

You not only beautify the world

With your pretty wings

Your also benefit the trees

Providing fruits for creatures of the earth

We need you

I am longing to see you

You make me so happy

Capturing you in my camcorder

For other to see

You give joy to me

My day is complete

Oh!  My Monarch Butterfly!!!

I love you

Layers: A Mesmerizing New Animation by Maxim Zhestkov

December 3, 2018  Kate Sierzputowski

Layers is a new 4K digital art film by Russian director Maxim Zhestkov (previously) which follows amutating black cube as colorful layers are revealed inside, showcasing a stark contrast between its surface and core. Several iterations of the black monolith are bisected by an invisible force, showcasing purples, greens, reds, and a bright blue that fills the largest area at the structures’ center. The objects float through fictional gallery spaces (like we’ve seen in previous films Elements and Volumes) presenting each as impossible sculptures that can only be produced by digital means. Layers is the fourth film Zhestkov has launched since 2017. You can view other art films from his series, and keep up with future projects on VimeoInstagram, and Behance.

The Collapse of the American Empire?

The Agenda with Steve Paikin   Published on Sep 12, 2018

The Agenda welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges, who over the past decade and a half has made his name as a columnist, activist and author. He’s been a vociferous public critic of presidents on both sides of the American political spectrum, and his latest book, ‘America, the Farewell Tour,’ is nothing short of a full-throated throttling of the political, social, and cultural state of his country.

Sleep is your life-support system and Mother Nature’s best effort yet at immortality, says sleep scientist Matt Walker. In this deep dive into the science of slumber, Walker shares the wonderfully good things that happen when you get sleep — and the alarmingly bad things that happen when you don’t, for both your brain and body. Learn more about sleep’s impact on your learning, memory, immune system and even your genetic code — as well as some helpful tips for getting some shut-eye.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

About the speaker

Matt Walker · Sleep scientist, professor, author

Matt Walker is a brain scientist trying to understand why we sleep.

In the United States, it’s estimated that 30 percent of adults and 66 percent of adolescents are regularly sleep-deprived. This isn’t just a minor inconvenience: staying awake can cause serious bodily harm. Claudia Aguirre shows what happens to your body and brain when you skip sleep. [Directed by TED-Ed, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Carlos Palomares].

A condition called Charles Bonnet Syndrome can cause blind patients to hallucinate scenes in vivid color. fMRI studies show that these hallucinations activate the same brain areas as sight — areas that are not activated by imagination. Other hallucinations also involve the same brain areas as real sensory experiences. What’s going on? Elizabeth Cox details the science of hallucinations. [TED-Ed Animation by Nerdo]

Money, luxury and fame – the new super-rich of India | DW Documentary

DW Documentary    Published on Feb 20, 2019

Only the US and China currently have more billionaires than India. Some of them are as famous as pop stars and enjoy similar adulation. Their social media accounts have millions of followers – in a country where more than half the population lives below the poverty line and has no electricity or fresh water. India’s super-rich have been dubbed the “new maharajas.” The sources of their seemingly unlimited wealth are almost as varied as their values and lifestyles. 23-old Evan Luthra uses his father’s seed capital to invest in new ideas in the software industry. He loves luxury, meets the young moneyed elite in fashionable destinations around the world, and is active on all the social networks. Abhimanyu Alsisar, nephew of the Maharajah of Jaipur, runs a chain of luxury hotels in the ancient palaces of India and invests in music events. Kalpana Saroj comes from the lowest caste in India and has worked her way up from destitution to become a multimillionaire – but she never forgets her background, and helps impoverished farmers in her homeland with medical care and gifts of money. Vijay Mallya even bought his own Formula 1 racing team, but faces a long prison sentence for fraudulent bankruptcy and tax evasion should he return to India. The documentary is the result of six months of investigative research and offers a deep insight into the everyday and professional lives of India’s super-rich. DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines. Watch high-class documentaries from German broadcasters and international production companies.

Isaac Asimov on why YOUR Ignorance doesn’t equal MY Ignorance…

In every century people have thought they understood the Universe at last, and in every century they were proven to be wrong. It follows that the one thing we can say about out modern “knowledge” is that it is wrong.

Socrates had said on learning that the Delphic oracle had proclaimed him the wisest man in Greece. “If I am the wisest man,” said Socrates, “it is because I alone know that I know nothing.” 

The basic trouble, you see, is that people think that “right” and “wrong” are absolute; that everything that isn’t perfectly and completely right is totally and equally wrong.

Let me dispose of Socrates because I am sick and tired of this pretense that knowing you know nothing is a mark of wisdom.

No one knows nothing. In a matter of days, babies learn to recognize their mothers. Socrates would agree, of course, and explain that knowledge of trivia is not what he means.

He means that in the great abstractions over which human beings debate, one should start without preconceived, unexamined notions.

Now where do we get the notion that “right” and “wrong” are absolutes? 

Young children learn spelling, for instance, and here we tumble into apparent absolutes.

How do you spell “sugar?” Suppose Alice spells it p-q-z-z-f and Genevieve spells it s-h-u-g-e-r. Both are wrong, but is there any doubt that Alice is more wrong than Genevieve?

When people thought the Earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the Earth was spherical, they were wrong.

But if you think that thinking the Earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the Earth is flat, then your view is more wrong than both of them put together.

Black Holes and Our Solar System Documentary – The Universe and Space Exploration

Started streaming on May 11, 2019

How likely is it that a black hole could enter the Solar System? Well, you’d have to define likely; it is more likely that the Earth will get swallowed by a black hole than, say, winning the lottery ten times in a row, but less likely than being struck by lightning. In fact the odds of a black hole devouring our planet are estimated at one in a trillion. There are two predominant types of black hole in the universe. The first are supermassive black holes found churning at the centre of galaxies. These don’t really pose any threat to us, until our galaxy collides with another like the Andromeda galaxy in a few billion years.
