It's Leonardo da Vinci's Birthday: Here Are 15 Quotes From The Renaissance Man

It's Leonardo da Vinci's Birthday: Here Are 15 Quotes From The Renaissance Man | Politically Incorrect | Scoop.it

It is sometimes related that, while the young Leonardo da Vinci was an apprentice to Florentine painter Andrea del Verrocchio, the two collaborated on a painting. But when Verrocchio saw the beautiful angel that da Vinci had depicted holding the robes of Christ, he put down his brush and never painted again. To celebrate the life of da Vinci – painter, sculptor, musician, architect, writer, botanist, inventor, engineer, and anatomist par excellence - here are 15 quotes from the Renaissance man himself.

1. Progress: “Poor is the pupil that does not surpass his master.”
2. Mental waste: “Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind.”
5. Modern art? “Many are they who have a taste and love for drawing, but no talent; and this will be discernible in boys who are not diligent and never finish their drawings with shading.”
7. Truth endures: “Truth at last cannot be hidden. Dissimulation is of no avail. Dissimulation is to no purpose before so great a judge. Falsehood puts on a mask. Nothing is hidden under the sun.” 
9. Be reasonable: “The senses are of the earth; Reason, stands apart in contemplation.”
11. The fallacy of opinion: “The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions.” 
12. Keep your eyes on the road: “He who walks straight rarely falls.”
13. Humility: “We see the most striking example of humility in the lamb which will submit to any animal; and when they are given for food to imprisoned lions they are as gentle to them as to their own mother, so that very often it has been seen that the lions forbear to kill them.”

Largest Wind Farm In Southern Hemisphere Opens In Australia | PlanetSave | Politically Incorrect | Scoop.it

Equipment and personnel from four continents banded together to build the largest wind farm in the world’s southern hemisphere: the 420 MW (nearly ½-billion-watt) Macarthur Wind Farm. The Macarthur Wind Farm is now officially open and pouring electricity into the country’s electric grid

Demetrios Georgalas's insight:

“Vestas is strongly committed to the Australian market and very pleased to have such good working relations with our key customers here,” says Vestas CEO Ditlev Engel. “Australia is now enjoying the benefits of large-scale clean energy investment and jobs, thanks to its Renewable Energy Target. Bipartisan support for this policy is a crucial element in creating the long-term business certainty to make billion dollar investments like the Macarthur project a reality.”

10 top gadgets from Iain M Banks' Culture universe

10 top gadgets from Iain M Banks' Culture universe | Politically Incorrect | Scoop.it

It's hard to know what to do when a literary idol announces their imminent demise.

 

This week, with typical deadpannery, writer Iain Banksbroke the devastating news that he is "officially Very Poorly" and has just months to live.

We decided that list-making is an appropriate response.

 

Iain (M) Banks' mainstream and science fiction has brought us much joy over the years – particularly his Culture series – about an anarchic, super-evolved, egalitarian spacefaring civilisation. Each time we've read a new Culture novel, We swear we've feltnew neural pathways fizzing into existence.

 

 

 

In the Culture, humans and Artificial Intelligences (AIs) enjoy equal societal standing; crime, personal wealth and disease are so far in the past as to be considered bad taste; and everyone has ready access to technology that's indistinguishable from magic.

 

Basically, Culture citizens are enlightened and weaponised space-Scandinavians.

 

Here are ten other perks of the Culture:

 

1. Sex, drugs and eugenics

 

Culture humans are so evolved that eugenics are de rigeur across the species. Humans live 300 years plus, can change gender at will, and have sexy bits that are genetically optimised for pleasure. Cor.

Most people are also born with natural "drug glands" which secrete non-habit forming mood and sensory-altering substances. These include the trippy 'Crystal Fuge State' and 'Quicken', which speeds up mental processes so people can talk to AIs without having to ask them to repeat themselves.

And there are no hangovers or comedowns, so nobody's buzz is harshed.

 

Like we said, enlightened space-Scandinavians.

 

2. Switching off pain

 

In a society of planet-hopping poly-centenarians, physical injury is inevitable. But Culture humans are hardy. Severed limbs grow back, bones thicken and thin according to gravitational need, and autonomic processes like breathing and blinking can be switched to conscious control.

Best of all, though, is the ability to turn pain off at will. Which begs the question: would Fifty Shades of Grey even work in a Culture scenario?

 

3. Body modification

 

Want to look like an Aspidistra? You can in the Culture. Four arms? Not a problem. Chewbacca? Be my guest. In The State of the Art, one character looks like a Yeti. Most people look like people, though, although some choose otherwise.

The book Excession describes some outré past, where: "as the fashions of the intervening times had ordained – people ... had resembled birds, fish, dirigible balloons, snakes, small clouds of cohesive smoke and animated bushes".

 

4. Starships, warships and drones

 

Culture starships are sentient and planet-sized, and tend towards the whimsical, with names like Of Course I Still Love You and Just Read The Instructions. Even warships come in the gleefully aggressive Killer, Torturer, Psychopath and Gangster classes. Daww.

Should any human passengers feel weird about padding round a giant space-bound conference centre and addressing the air around them, the ship can talk to them via a human-sized drone. In my mind, this drone always has the voice of Captain Birdseye, and is something that P&O should maybe look into.

 

Get a robot to fire you into the heart of the sun. YOLO

 

5. Grid energy

 

Can a universe technically count as a gadget? It can when you're a super-advanced spacefaring democracy. Everything the Culture uses – from coffee machines to seriously scary space weaponry – is powered by limitless energy from the Grid, a field which separates our universe from a mirroring antimatter universe.

Grid energy is also indirectly behind technology that allows people to do things like hack computers light years away.

We like to think that this is because, no matter how evolved the Culture is, its citizens still receive parental requests to "debug my computer while I pop to the garden centre".

 

6. Knife missiles

 

Contact and Special Circumstances are the Culture's spy and military arms. They're under the radar and engage in the odd dodgy practice but, most importantly, they have all the cool toys. One of these is a knife missile – which remains a normal utensil until its owner is in danger, at which point it takes to the air and slices and dices the enemy before they can react.

If it feels like it, we mean. Knife missiles are of course sentient, and sometimes a bit chippy.

 

7. EDust assassins

 

These are sentient nanomachines made of EVERYTHING ("Everything- Dust" or "EDust") which can take the shape of ANYTHING (you, me, that dog poo) and level entire buildings. EDust assassins are one of Special Circumstances' "Terror Weapons", and they impress me so much that I'm slightly worried that I'm actually North Korea.

 

8. Atomic tattoos

 

In the novel Surface Detail, an indentured servant (belonging to an unenlightened non-Culture slaver, obviously) is branded with a beautiful tattoo signifying ownership. The tattoo is written into the structure of every cell of her body, replicating itself into infinite smallness inside her DNA.

When her owner murders her, the Culture revives the slave, and she uses her tattoo to wreak her revenge. Take that, Steig Larsson.

 

Not quite how we envisioned the atomic tattoo...

 

9. Mosquito drones – now available on Earth?

 

In the novel Consider Phlebas, a tiny robot mosquito collects a blood sample from a human. According to the rumour mill, this isn't a million miles away from possible military developments today. Maybe 500,000 miles away, but not a million.

 

10. Personality backups and goodbyes

 

In a move that's at once heartbreaking and reassuring, Iain M Banks has made the Culture's attitude to death a philosophical one.

Death is essentially optional in the Culture – many people "back up" their personalities in case they shuffle off the mortal coil accidentally (extreme sports are big in the Culture). Then a copy of the individual can be reborn in the same form, a different one, or purely in virtual reality.

If they're bored they may choose to go into storage and wake up some time in the future. Also, biological and AI individuals – and entire civilisations – can "sublime"; that is, leave the material universe behind altogether and segue into some mysterious immaterial existence.

 

And finally, should a Culture citizen's natural body give out, once the appropriate respects have been paid, they will be displaced directly into the heart of their home sun.

So long, and thanks for all the drones.

Rum-Raisin Blondies

Rum-Raisin Blondies | Politically Incorrect | Scoop.it
Brown sugar gives these bar cookies loads of caramel flavor and a moist, chewy, brownielike texture. Rum-soaked raisins add delicious depth. For a nonalcoholic version, soak the raisins in water.
Demetrios Georgalas's insight:

9 oz. raisins (2 cups) 
1/2 cup dark rum, such as Myers’s 
6 oz. (3/4 cup) unsalted butter; more, softened, for the pan 
11-1/4 oz. (2-1/2 cups) unbleached all-purpose flour 
3/4 tsp. baking powder 
1/2 tsp. baking soda 
1/2 tsp. table salt 
2 cups packed brown sugar (light or dark) 
2 large eggs, beaten 
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract 

In a 1-quart saucepan, bring the raisins and rum to a simmer over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes; remove from the heat. Let the raisins cool to room temperature in the rum, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch baking pan, line the bottom with parchment, and then butter the parchment.

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a 2-quart saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat; remove from the heat and let cool briefly. Add the brown sugar to the pan and mix with a silicone spatula until thoroughly combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and stir until combined.

Add the sugar mixture to the flour mixture, stirring with the spatula until just combined. Gently fold in the raisins and any rum from the pan.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smooth the top, and tap the pan on the counter once or twice to break any air bubbles. Bake until the top is golden-brown and a wooden skewer or toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs clinging to it, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan on a wire rack

Run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the blondies, invert onto a cutting board, remove the pan and parchment, and flip right side up. Cut into 16 pieces and serve.

Demetrios Georgalas's insight:

That stance, and North Korea's barrage of nuclear threats in recent days, cast a pall of low expectations over the latest round of talks. (Stanislav Filippov / AFP/Getty Images)

And where you should go instead.
Demetrios Georgalas's insight:

Have you ever traveled somewhere that everyone told you was the absolute best, only to find yourself wondering: Is that all there is?

It happens. Sometimes, the destination in question is trading on a dated reputation it no longer deserves. Other times, you've fallen victim to hype, manufactured by the travel industry, gleefully perpetrated by those whose job it is to report objectively. The end result? You've now wasted precious vacation time and money.

Here are ten overrated places I've encountered, some all too frequently, during nearly fifteen years as a travel writer. If I never see any of them again, I won't mind at all.

Curious? Read on. (I'll show myself out.)
