This set of six stickers will go to everyone who donates $10 or more to our Indiegogo fundraiser! I can’t wait to get these printed… each sticker will be 3” x 4” (Umm, the perfect size to put into an art journal? Yes, please!)

This is an interesting video from a couple years ago of a 58-year old man who has Parksinson’s disease.  As you can see, walking is very difficult for him.  What was truly remarkable was that despite his advanced PD, he is able to ride a bike.  It was astonishing, since despite being unable to walk, he is able to ride a bike almost completely normally.  He does need to be helped onto the bike and given a little push to start, but while he is riding, he is capable of doing it on his own.  After this discovery, they found that other severe PD patients were also able to ride bikes.  They are not sure exactly why they are able to ride bikes, but it must be accomplished through a different mechanism in the brain than walking.  Also, since exercise has been shown to slow the progress of PD in animal models, it might be that it would do the same in humans, so those with severe PD might be able to find ways to exercise (like riding a bike) when they cannot do others.

We are told during college and medical school that we must memorize everything. With the explosion of information, however, it is more practical to know the specific question for which you need the answer for and have reliable sources. The goal is to memorize as much as possible, but also know how to find information in the most efficient manner.

Javier Benítez MD discussing the death of the textbook on Academic Life in Emergency Medicine

The last sentence of this quote represents the key to understanding how we need to restructure medical education. Our current system ONLY emphasizes memorizing information that is too numerous and too quickly out of date to be useful. We need to incorporate the judicious and efficient use of information resources into our teaching so that medical graduates are better equipped for real world medical practice.

My theory is: exams in med school and beyond should be open-book/internet, and consist of WAY more questions than you could possibly answer in the given time limit. That way, you’re tested like “real-life”: if you happen to know the answer from memory, hooray for you, and you can move on to another question faster. On the other hand, if you don’t “just know it”, but you’re still really good at integrating the data and using your resources to find an answer, you can still answer a bunch of questions correctly. Real life, baby.

Defined Metallic-Turquoise Wing (L’oreal Innocent Turquoise)

Time for a more dramatic, defined eye! This is a shape that would work on both double- and mono-lids because the contour again follows the hollow of the eye socket. 

Feel free to replace the turquoise with any color you enjoy!

I used:

  • Black liner
  • Deep rust-brown (Coastal Scents Cherry Chocolate)
  • Bright Turquoise Shimmer (L’oreal Infallible in Innocent Turquoise)

Step 1: With your black liner, you want to first draw a very precise shape. The first line goes along the lower lash line from the INSIDE-OUT. Draw the line thick and make sure you get it into the roots of your lashes because you don’t want gaps there. Pull it out past the outer corners until you reach just past where the hollow of your eye socket ends.

If you’re not sure where, don’t extend it. Do Step 2 below first, then pull the lower line up to meet the upper line.

Step 2: Run the pencil along the hollow of your eye socket (not the crease where the fold is; this should be higher and you can feel it with your fingers). Tip for beginners: Do it in 2 strokes. Start from the center of your eye out, THEN from the center of your eye in, but much lighter-handed this time. Don’t draw the line all the way to the inner corners because you want your eyes to look more “open”. 

Step 3: Now’s the time to smudge a bit more pencil into the outer corners, within the shape you drew earlier. Then use a brush or your fingers to fade the black inwards slightly. The black should not extend past about 1/3 of your lid.

Step 4: Now that the complicated part is out of the way, just use a flat brush to pick up a dark red-brown and carefully press or pack it onto the black pencil. Fade it inwards also, but this time, fade it in further than the pencil, to about the center of your lids.

Step 5: For the main lid shade, pack it on very intensely from the inner corners, overlap the brown a bit as you fade outwards. Stay within the border drawn by your pencil earlier. Since I’m using an Infallible pigment, I’m just packing it on with my fingers rather than a brush. This formula works best with fingers because of the high binder content.

Step 6: Finishing touch for the lids; reapply a little dark brown along the upper borders of the eye shape if your colorful shadow has covered it up a little. The line should be very defined and strong or this will turn into a typical smoky eye.

Step 7: Finish the eye with black mascara and black liner along the waterline if you want.

On the cheeks, I used a pale pink blush (Bourjois Little Round Pot Eye Shadow #15). Really, any pink you have will do.

On the lips, I applied a soft matte pink from MAC called Pink Plaid. If you can’t find that, something like Creme Cup would work fine.

The Sound of a Dying Star

The electromagnetic frequencies of a dying Sun-sized star were analyzed and converted to audible tones using advanced software tools. This is what it sounds like for a celestial body to be torn apart by a black hole. Kind of. You know … converted, since sound waves don’t travel in space.

A nice feature, and fantastic explanation, from CNN Radio.
