Anonymous said: Hi, I know this message is kinda late (really late) but what you thought about the scenes between Arya and Tywin Lannister at Harrenhal?


Well, on a non-book reader basis, I objectively liked them. They were interesting to watch, and Charles Dance and Maisie Williams played off each other very well I thought. The dialogue, usage of dramatic irony, and the actors’ chemistry was entertaining.

As a book reader, I more or less loathed them. Somehow, with just the few scenes between Arya and Tywin, the show managed to more or less ruin their book characterizations.

I want to specify quickly though that from a production of television perspective, this was a great, creative choice that makes perfect sense. Charles Dance would have been underused and absent- which would have been a shame considering his acting charisma, contract, and how well he’s received by audience members. Also, Arya’s time in Harrenhal was largely spent interacting with unimportant political characters (with the exception of Roose, who came to Harrenhal later in her stay anyway.)

So all that being said, it ruined the characters and was the first clue I had on what the show really values.

Yo! My name is Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey…This is cosplay as Cinematic Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider Man. This suit was made by 
Jesse Covington ( Writer and Costume Designer) and sewn by Sasha Williams ( Fashion Major graduate). Photos were taken by Pierre BL Brevard I specifically would like to thank Marvel Comics Artist Sara Pichelli for designing this character. I’m also very excited to see Olivier Coipel's work on Spider-Verse!

(Full shoot will be shot in New York itself just in time for NYCC)

Elisabeth Sladen and Brian Miller (who were married from 1968 until Sladen’s death in 2011) both appeared in Classic Who and New Who: she as Sarah Jane Smith, he as Dugdale in Snakedance, a Dalek voice in Resurrection of the Daleks and Remembrance of the Daleks, and a tramp in Deep Breath.

Though their time on Who did not overlap, they appeared opposite each other in the Sarah Jane Adventures episode The Mad Woman in the Attic:

Temporary tattoos could make electronic telepathy and telekinesis possible

Temporary electronic tattoos could soon help people fly drones with only thought and talk seemingly telepathically without speech over smartphones, researchers say. Electrical engineer Todd Coleman at the University of California at San Diego is devising noninvasive means of controlling machines via the mind, techniques virtually everyone might be able to use.

Commanding machines using the brain is no longer the stuff of science fiction. In recent years, brain implants have enabled people to control robotics using only their minds, raising the prospect that one day patients could overcome disabilities using bionic limbs or mechanical exoskeletons.

But brain implants are invasive technologies, probably of use only to people in medical need of them. Instead, Coleman and his team are developing wireless flexible electronics one can apply on the forehead just like temporary tattoos to read brain activity.

"We want something we can use in the coffee shop to have fun," Coleman says.

The devices are less than 100 microns thick, the average diameter of a human hair. They consist of circuitry embedded in a layer or rubbery polyester that allow them to stretch, bend and wrinkle. They are barely visible when placed on skin, making them easy to conceal from others.

The devices can detect electrical signals linked with brain waves, and incorporate solar cells for power and antennas that allow them to communicate wirelessly or receive energy. Other elements can be added as well, like thermal sensors to monitor skin temperature and light detectors to analyze blood oxygen levels.

Using the electronic tattoos, Coleman and his colleagues have found they can detect brain signals reflective of mental states, such as recognition of familiar images. One application they are now pursuing is monitoring premature babies to detect the onset of seizures that can lead to epilepsy or brain development problems. The devices are now being commercialized for use as consumer, digital health, medical device, and industrial and defense products by startup MC10 in Cambridge, Mass.
