Attention Blogroll List~!

Friday, January 30th, 2009

green and red hello kittyBecause I’ve been a way for so long, My blog has not only been spammed (3000+ spam comments are not at all fun to clean up! T_T), but my Blogroll list is pretty much… outdated! A lot of the blogs on my list have either been abandoned or they’re on hiatus.

So what does this mean, exactly?

It means Rukia’s going to DELETE HER BLOGROLL LIST. That’s right, everyone who is linked with me will be deleted.

But fear not! This is only for cleaning up purposes. Meaning, if you comment on this entry before February, I’ll add you back to my link list again. ^^

I just want to know who’s still here and who’s not. *o* Pretty simple process… Though it will definitely be a hassle to repopulate my blogroll.

This is all for the fight against spam so it’ll be worth it… I hope?

That’s all for now. Thanks guys! Keep updating those blogs!

The Secret of Levitation

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

Ever wonder what it would be like to levitate? I mean real levitation, not some magic trick.

Apparently, Scientists have found the secret of levitation. I read it up in Yahoo, and here’s what the article has to say… (I removed a few bits and pieces so that it won’t be so long to read.

LONDON (AFP) - Scientists have discovered a ground-breaking way of levitating ultra small objects, which may revolutionize the design of micro-machines, a new report says.

Physicists said they can create “incredible levitation effects” by manipulating so-called Casimir force, which normally causes objects to stick together by quantum force.

The phenomenon could be used to improve the performances of everyday devices ranging from car airbags to computer chips, say Professor Ulf Leonhardt and Dr Thomas Philbin from Saint Andrews University.

Casimir force — discovered in 1948 and first measured in 1997 — can be seen in a gecko’s ability to stick to a surface with just one toe.

Now the British scientists say they can reverse the Casimir force to cause an object to repel rather than attract another in a vacuum.

Leonhardt stressed that the practice is possible only for micro-objects.

But he underlined that, although in principle it may one day be possible to levitate humans, that day is a long way off.

“At the moment, in practice it is only going to be possible for micro-objects with the current technology, since this quantum force is small and acts only at short ranges,” he said.

Their research was to be published in the New Journal of Physics.

Wouldn’t it be great? One day, people will be able to levitate. Of course, the article says the technology is still a long way off, and it’s still only a “possibility”, but it’s still nice to dream that one day, you can “fly”. :)

Piracy?

There’s been a controversy going on for so long… A lot of people have been claiming that Hello Kitty was actually a rip off of the original character “Musti” by Ray Goossens.

But really, the issue regarding plagiarism and copyright infringement has been long discussed over and over again by, people I call “controversy lovers” all over the Internet. In my opinion, as an artist, there’s only so much you can do to make your work “original”.

I’m not saying people shouldn’t fight for their right with regards to design and art thievery… I’d much rather say that leave the original artists to fight their battles, and support their decision if they choose not to fight it.

Read more about the facts on Musti, Miffy, and Hello Kitty’s creation in Ying Dong’s blog. Her entry made me think about this rumor again, and I couldn’t believe it’s still a hot topic.
