Today’s Holiday: Conch Republic Independence Celebration

Today’s Holiday:
Conch Republic Independence Celebration

In 1982 the United States Border Patrol set up a roadblock on U.S. Highway 1, just north of the Florida Keys, which threatened the region’s tourist industry and angered residents. On April 23, 1982, the residents of the Florida Keys seceded from the United States as the Conch Republic; though it didn’t last, the stunt succeeded in lifting the roadblocks. Each year, residents celebrate the short-lived independence of the Conch Republic. The festival features conch-blowing contests, a reenactment of the secession, mock naval battles, numerous public parties, and more.

This Day in History Battle of Clontarf (1014)

This Day in History:
Battle of Clontarf (1014)

The Battle of Clontarf was a decisive battle fought between Irish forces under the high king of Ireland, Brian Boru, and a Viking army formed by Sitric, king of the Dublin Norse. Brian’s forces defeated the Vikings at Clontarf, near Dublin, but he was killed shortly thereafter by fleeing Norsemen. Brian’s victory broke Viking power in Ireland, but, without a king, the country split into small, separate kingdoms that then fought one another. What was Wolf the Quarrelsome’s role in the battle?

Article of the Day:
Kirlian Photography

Kirlian photography is a technique in which a high-voltage current is passed over a subject in contact with photographic film or paper. This produces an image surrounded by a luminous aura, which some claim is a bioenergetic field that can reveal information about a subject’s physical health and emotional state. The technique is named after Russian scientist Semyon Kirlian, who discovered the electric effect on which it is based. What type of subjects will produce images in Kirlian photography?

Rx: To all wordpress.com bloggers who worry too much, about everything I recommend this: watch “Bob Marley Don t worry, be happy” on YouTube

Here’s a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry, be happy now
don’t worry
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy
The landlord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don’t worry, be happy
Oh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh don’t worry, be happy
Here I give you my phone number, when you worry, call me, I make you happy, don’t worry, be happy)
Don’t worry, be happy
Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style
Ain’t got no gal to make you smile
Don’t worry, be happy
‘Cause when you worry your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry, be happy now
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
Now there, is this song I wrote
I hope you learned note for note
Like good little children, don’t worry, be happy
Now listen to what I said, in your life expect some trouble
When you worry you make it double
But don’t worry, be happy, be happy now
don’t worry
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
don’t worry, don’t worry
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, don’t do it, be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) put a smile in your face
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t bring everybody down like this
don’t worry
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) it will soon pass, whatever it is
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry, be happy
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) I’m not worried, I’m happy

Touch and Tactility: Feeding Our Forgotten Sense | Adobe Blog



Touch and Tactility: Feeding Our Forgotten Sense

by Brenda MilisPOSTED ON 11-08-2018

Have you gazed at a screen today? Yep, me too. In fact, you are looking at a screen right now as you read this, and we are all probably surrounded by flat interfaces and shiny high-tech devices. To fit them in, we may have edged out some real-world interactions — it’s what so many of us do. And it’s how we’re losing touch with touch. We’re desperately short on the textures, warmth, and imperfections that come from engaging with things in the tangible world — handcrafts, textiles, building materials, and each other.

This absence of touch is shaping our final Visual Trend of 2018 — a move toward tactility. We’re seeing it everywhere, from architecture to fashion, pop culture, and stock. And now, as we enter the holiday season, we’re likely to see even more emphasis on touch and connections in the real, messy, physical world.

Tactility as an experience

People are creating all kinds of experiences to feed our need for touch. For example, Thread Caravan organizes trips for travelers who want to learn the process behind traditional crafts. They work with local artisans, forging a human connection through touch, texture, and shared love of handcraft.

When Heatherwick Studio was asked to design an ideal learning environment for Singapore’s Nanyang Learning Hub, the team focused on touch and imperfection instead of sleek, flawless design. They commissioned handmade drawings and used them to create raised textures on the building’s concrete walls, giving the interior the look and feel of handworked clay.

Always at the forefront of trends, the fashion world is of course working to fulfill our desire for tactility. The spring/summer 2019 trendsare awash in texture, from feathers and opulent layers, to frills and ocean-inspired scales and netting. (For more on how fashion fits into current design trends, check out our report on spring colors, too.)

The rise of the crafty

While the experiences, places, and clothes we wrap ourselves in are taking a turn toward texture, we’re also embracing all things homemade, crafty, and hands-on, as well as our connections with their makers. Consider how we use Etsy to browse a mind-boggling array of handmade goods, and reach out to the artists to learn about their processes and make our personal requests. The site is up to nearly 2 million active sellers and sales are growing.
We even want to watch each other make crafts. When NBC premiered its new crafting competition, “Making It,” this summer, 6.3 million people tuned into the premiere. The show’s participants deploy materials like paper, felt, wood, and clay to create projects that are deeply sentimental and tactile. The show seems to have struck a chord — it’s already renewed for a second season.

The handcrafted, all-about-touch trend may have even come into your own kitchen, in the form of slime. This homemade, squeezable, stretchable frenzy hit so hard that craft stores ran out of the key ingredient — glue. (Elmer’s recommended ordering online.) Fans of slime-making don’t just go for the gooey texture, they add glitter, beads, and trinkets for tactile variety. The trend has racked up countless YouTube tutorials and millions of #slime Instagram posts. And it can give you a physical sensation, even if you never touch it — ASMR-style videos of quiet slime squishingsend tingles up some people’s spines.

Tech learns to touch

While it may be our attachment to screens and gadgets that has us longing for a tactile world, that doesn’t mean tech can’t adapt. We’re starting to see high-tech textures and interfaces that feel warmer, more human, less perfect, and more worthy of our touch.

For example, there are already at least two tech-enabled denim jackets. Dutch fashion designer Pauline van Dongen created a cocoon-like garment that responds to touch, giving the wearer a gentle back rub. Levi’s and Google developed a jacket with a touch-sensitive fabric that lets you control your smartphone hands-free when you’re on the go.
Tech designers are also integrating handcrafted appeal and constructed imperfections to increase the appeal of home tech products to consumers, creating comforting rounded forms and muted colors that break with the sleekness and sterility of tech. Following this trend, Google Pixel Budsare pebble-shaped earbuds with textile cables. And Ikea’s ENEBY Bluetooth speakers are covered in a textured fabric of soft, mixed grays.
On the other edge of this trend, the Zero UI movement aims for more natural high-tech interactions, which means we’ll touch our tools less, but interact with them in warmer, more natural ways. You’ve experienced this already if you’ve talked to a personal digital assistant like Amazon’s Alexa, Google Home, or Siri. In small steps, these UIs are getting even more human — Amazon taught Alexa to laugh and tell jokes, and there’s a patent for technology that allows Siri to whisper back when you speak to her quietly.

Stock you can feel

When it comes to the visual arts, we’re seeing the touch and tactility trend in two big ways. The first is images that foreground bold, familiar textures (think cold water, dry grass, wet hair), especially with hands or whole bodies reaching out to touch them. Second, we’re seeing images of gentle human touch — embraces, kisses, intertwined fingers. They all address our missing elements: tactility and the warmth and complexity of face-to-face relationships with each other.

The takeaway for designers and brands

Our brains and our bodies are exquisitely wired for a tactile world, but most of us haven’t been giving ourselves nearly enough of it. As consumers crave more texture and connection, brands and designers have an opportunity. It’s the perfect moment to embrace beautifully touchable, imperfect surfaces, textures, and crafts along with genuine moments of human connection. Not only do these images delight and tickle our most neglected sense, they may remind us to get back into touch.
