REBIRTH of GAEA – Flowing Meditation
from Jesse Michael Newman PLUS 11 months ago
A visual love letter for my daughter.
This video provides a layer-by-layer deconstruction of “Flowing Meditation,” a small part of REBIRTH of GAEA.
REBIRTH of GAEA is an epic visual tapestry delicately interweaving reflections on the environment and spirituality through the rich imagery of Greek Mythology. My daughter Emma has had a deep connection to the environment for as long as I can remember. As she grew older and became enchanted with Greek Mythology, I decided to show my support for her interests by creating REBIRTH of GAEA, depicting her as the Goddess of Earth.

If You Are Paying AT&T For Tethering Service On Your iPhone, You Will Be Upset After Reading This !!!
Apple pulled the $15 iTether app from their iTunes store. Did AT&T bully Apple to do so?
Updated: 12/30/2011 @ 7:15 AM EST
Cupertino, Calif. – December 29, 2011- Apple pulled iTether App because it burdens a carrier’s network. Are they talking about AT&T? If Apple is not looking out for their iPhone customers nor application developers who is? What Apple seems to be doing here is simply shoving a big AT&T stick up your you-know-what by not allowing iPhone users to download iTether ($15) as of 12 PM EST on December 29, 2011. The app, iTether, which was developed by tether.com allows iPhone users to have full Internet access on their laptop anywhere using their iPhone’s data plan without WiFi hotspots or extra data plans.
Here is the comment from Tether.com’s blog
We strongly disagree that it burdens a carrier’s network, as from our own data history on more than 500,000 users we know the average user consumes less than 200 MBs of data per month on Tether. In comparison, one TV show streamed from Netflix, an approved Apple App, could easily be in the 300-400 MBs range. Sure, there are some users that will consume way more than the average however that’s the case with any of these types of products.
Our team is very disappointed in Apple’s decision; as we strongly believe we help carriers better monetize their data stream by pushing customers into new data tiers further increasing their bottom-line. It is very anti-competitive to not allow any Tethering application to enter into this space to innovate. Our team has created a lot of innovative solutions for the BlackBerry product, which we were hoping to port over to the iPhone like end-to-end encryption, compression, website filtering and port filtering.
According to Apple, users who purchase iTether before it was pulled will continue to be able to use the product.
Who got screwed here? Just follow the money and here is what happens if the iPhone app is downloaded and used by an AT&T iPhone customer.
The developer makes $15 minus fees from Apple for each app sold.
AT&T however will lost $30 each month for each customer using the app.
Consumers pay $15 for iTether and have the ability to stick that $30 each month up AT&T’s you-know-where. Priceless!!
What can we, the little people do? Post and share this article on your wall. Tweet it. Retweet it. Send an email and ask Apple to do right thing.
To the iTether developer; repackage the app and call it FUATT and I will pay $30 for it.
Any suggestions? Use #FUATTTethering hash tag when you tweet or retweet.

As an aspire photographer I found myself gravitating toward this new Cosplay phenomenon. I will be attending the event to cover the cool Cosplay community in San Jose, CA my home town. Cosplay is a big business and it it growing exponentially each year. I am very excited being a part of this convention and fascinated about the event. This year I am applying to attend the show as a professional photographer and cover the most interesting area focusing on Cosplay. As a long time/ former creative guru of the SJCVB I am looking forward to promote this event and spread the joy of Cosplay in Silicon Valley. Look for me at the Convention. To all my Fans I will update everyone via Twitter and Facebook about the event.

Title: “Dreamweaver” 1/1 Oil on canvas with gold and copper leafs 30 inches by 47 inches
Date: 7/15/2010, it is still wet!!!
About: This painting was created during a night that could not sleep because I had too much in my mind. I should be sleeping but I was not so I started to paint with little paint I had. If I was sleeping I would be dreaming about something similar to it because I had too much in my mind such as work, my worries, my problems, my happiness, and other thinngs. That’s why name it Dreamweaver each lines and colors represent things I was thinking or running through my mind that night. This painting is one of my favorite paintings, it has depth, quite colorful. It means something to me and it’s huge!!. TWHS
At IdealPad we run our website in a very “Green” hosting environment and therefore, in turn, we are running a Green website!
Our web hosting company 1&1 has partnered with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) to offset 100% of the energy usage of their data center in Lenexa, Kansas by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). The majority of the RECs will be sourced from the Bowersock Mills and Power Company’s hydroelectric facility in Lawrence, Kansas. This hydroelectric facility is certified low impact by the Low Impact Hydro Institute (LIHI).
1&1’s renewable energy purchase for the facility is enough clean energy to power at least 300 U.S. homes for one year!
1&1 and BEF work in tandem with Green-e, the nation’s leading voluntary certification program for renewable energy, to power our data center with clean, renewable energy. Green-e certifies renewable energy that meets environmental and consumer protection standards that it developed in conjunction with leading environmental, energy and policy organizations. More >
