On Museum Accessibility: Captain Jean-Luc Picard smiles when touching an historical Phoenix spaceship. “This is a boyhood fantasy, Data. I must have seen this ship hundreds of times at the Smithsonian, but I was never able to touch it. [...] For humans, touch can connect you to an object in a quite personal way. Make it seem more real.” -Star Trek Generations Or it is funny that in the 24th Century in Star Trek that museums still worry about touch and accessibility. :P

COVERT SCIENCE-In 1967 William Shatner’s bike broke down in the Mojave Desert. In the distance a figure beckoned to him & he followed it until, half-dead, he arrived at a gas station. A pan-shaped object hovered over it. To this day he believes an otherworldly power intervened because he was meant to become an icon as Capt. Kirk. He says he’s had 1 other sighting-filming Kirk’s death in STAR TREK: GENERATIONS, he looked up and there was the object he’d seen in 1967."Passing Strange-1910-2013"

In the western hemisphere, totem Poles are hand carved columns first made by the early Indian tribes of the Northwest. A totem is a carved wooden object, more often than not an animal representing a family or a tribe. It symbolizes a symbolic relationship between nature and humans. Totem poles often have very interesting religious and historical meanings interpreted through the mythical beings from the familial history

DATA: Sir, the purpose of this gathering confuses me. PICARD: Oh? How so? DATA: My thoughts are not for Tasha, but for myself. I keep thinking how empty it will feel without her presence. Did I miss the point? PICARD: No, you didn't, Data. You got it. - Star Trek TNG S1 Skin of Evil
Space, the final frontier…. OK, don’t worry, this isn’t a list of Star Trek tattoos, we’re not quite that nerdy. That being said, Captain Kirk had a point when he opened the program with that monologue; space really is the last... [ read more ]
FRIDAY AFTERNOONS:This term, my weekly supervisions are on a Friday at 1pm. This means that my week revolves around one hour (or usually two) of intense one-on-one contact time with my supervisor. After a supervision my brain always hurts so much, and I usually feel mentally drained but also weirdly energetic (?). I usually go to the gym straight after supervisions to release energy, but I’ve also found that the time following a supervision is great for organising the week to come. I had a brand new Moleskine delivered today (yay!), so I spent time drawing out a timetable for next week & I’m gradually filling it in. My week may seem quite empty at the moment, but I usually fill each day in as I go through the week, informed with an overall view of what I need to get done by the end of the week. It may seem unorganised to do this, but my degree is quite self-motivated with hardly any contact time or relevant lectures, so organising my days as I go along works for me. Also: some things here happen very last minute, and I wouldn’t like to tightly pack my schedule early on in the week only to have to change it later. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and would hate to scribble stuff out. But I can tell you something: most of that week from 8am-9pm will be filled in with red: WORK TIME. Thank goodness I love my degree. -Sarah

Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation had some of the best quotes ever.
The Poor Tree! A Supercell Thunderstorm Cloud Over Montana

Explanation: Is that a spaceship or a cloud? Although it may seem like an alien mothership, it's actually a impressive thunderstorm cloud called a supercell. Such colossal storm systems center on mesocyclones -- rotating updrafts that can span several kilometers and deliver torrential rain and high

Subversive Cross-stitching; I seem to recall making an embroidery turd pattern and giving it to a high school girlfriend. Maybe I should do that again.
