The only reason that Michael Brown was unarmed is that he was unsuccessful in wrestling away the weapon of a sworn police officer trying to do his job. At the time of his death, he had just committed two violent assaults, including the one on the cop. Why are progressive people so silent about those unfortunate little details?.
This week Arlington Pet of the Week is Oshie, a 4 year old rescue who cheered for the Washington Capitals with her family during the Stanley Cup Final last week. Oshie. Oshie is a 4 year old, 25 pound ball of energy. What makes the post useful is it provides a hypothetical platoon organisation which, convientently for me, features 12 soldiers, the same number I just painted up. See my previous post here. I just need to get 4 futuristic looking jeeps, 8 quadripedial robots (I scour the 15mm science fiction ranges for something suitable) and make 12 drones.

This week, the Canadian House of Commons is debating Bill S7, the Combatting Terrorism Act, which would re introduce controversial provisions allowing for preventive arrest and investigative hearings that expired in 2007. The Canadian Bar Association argues that such provisions duplicate existing laws; the charges in Montreal and Toronto this week would lend credence to that view. While Bill S7 has made its way rather slowly through the legislative process up to now, Harper’s Conservatives now have a majority.
In a statement announcing the upcoming exhibition, Andrew Bolton, Curator in The Costume Institute explained, the distinction between the haute couture and prt porter was based on the handmade and the machine made, but recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other. X machina challenge the conventions of the hand/machine dichotomy, and propose a new paradigm germane to our age of digital technology.”To support the exhibition, the Met has landed the perfect major sponsor, Apple, who will be represented at the Met Gala that always launches the show by its celebrated Design Officer Ive who has his own point of view on the marriage of design and technology, the automated and handcrafted process require similar amounts of thoughtfulness and expertise. There are instances where technology is optimized, but ultimately it the amount of care put into the craftsmanship, whether it machine made or hand made, that transforms ordinary materials into something extraordinary.”The exhibition will include examples dating from the 1880s to designer offerings from 2015 that show the impact of technology on fashion starting with the invention of the sewing machine up to 3 D printed clothing which will be demonstrated in workshops where visitors will see garments being created.
