    Coronavirus

    Another virus very similar to SARS-CoV-2 discovered in bats in Northern Laos

    https://assets.researchsquare.co…

    This is probably the strongest evidence so far that the virus emerged naturally through a process of slow mutation from animals, just like scientists have been saying all along.

    florida is whack

    Two ex-Miami officers, who were ‘Bad Boys’ fans, to begin prison sentences. Roderick Flowers, 29, and Keith Edwards, 31, who are cousins, will serve one year and three months in federal prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

    ‘We ride together. We die together. Bad Boys 4 Life.’

    Coronavirus

    FLORIDA alone is currently reporting more Covid-19 deaths per day than the entire country (incl Florida) was reporting just a couple months ago.

    Death trend: up

    • Tweets & Prayersutopian
    • waitwait that makes no sense :Dsted
    • more than the entire country? :Dsted
    • Yeah. & day average today is 363 for Florida.
      Back in June for entire USA was 350 then down to 270 by end of June.
      Fuck!

    • Weird because I thought Florida had natural immunity from last year. I guess the idiot who said that was wrong.monospaced
    • An idiot also pointed out that this is only .05% of the population and we really shouldn’t be treating it like a big deal.monospaced
    • An idiot might also argue that it’s mostly old people so really it doesn’t count at all. I hear like .0000001% die from the vaccine so we should focus on thatmonospaced
    • This can’t have anything to do with the governors position on covid and his blatant anti vaccine and mask policy. Not at all.monospaced
    • The science shows that this is probably just the flu and cars are more dangerous. Do you stop driving? No. Idiots.monospaced

    Looked out the window today in LDN and saw at 10.30am a car full of non indigenous looking dudes: scruffy beards, baseball caps, cotton tracksuit slacks, poor taste in music.

    They had plastic bottles of coca cola in hand, large smartphones, 200ml bottles of whiskey or rum. They drank said rum/whiskey. They also had a big bag of balloons. As they left they also smoked a joint.

    At 10.30am.

    As they moved on, they opened their car door a little and just dumped their spent balloons, gas canisters, half drunk coca cola bottles. Even though a bin was 3 metres away from them.

    All I could think was "What is benefit to society to have them in it?"

    • I mean, fair play, have an all night party, but don't dump your shit outside my window. and you mom said get a shave.shapesalad
    • It's a lost battle shape...
      Sadly, we've got the same problem here with moroccan and latin "young" "work-force".

    • I mean people that are speaking natively in a foreign language and are clearly not of the local/national culture, though you could argue against that last pointshapesalad
    • And yes I heard them firstly, carrying on in some language I'm not familiar with at all = not a west european language. Then I went to look out the window andshapesalad
    • saw them partying in the car, only issue was bad loud music. But.. the drug stuff is etc is thrown out and left at my window view, hence bad impression gained.shapesalad
    • Non-indigenous people are welcome to create positive impressions in my mind, but so far the negative impressions outweigh positive. Unfortunately.shapesalad
    • And I'm sure i-was feels the same where they are when looking at 'brits' as I feel same when i see certain chavs groups, but so far, they are outweighed...shapesalad

    • 2/3 of people are of no benefit to society. 10 years ago I would have proposed to feed them to a bioreactor (biomass to methane), but I've soften my stancedrgs
    • What the shit. Do you really say non-indigenous? That sounds so stupid. NO OFFENSE.monospaced

    Apple

    To iPad Pro or not to iPad Pro... that is the question.

    Anyone got one? Worth it? A little tired of being stuck at the desk with the Wacom.

    • Yes ofcgrafician
    • pro yes 12" 2018 model still good, refurbished.shapesalad
    • Pro, 3rd gen here. Love itGnash
    • Basically do everything other than indesign and most photoshop stuff (still find photoshop easier on computer)Gnash
    • But email, biz, research, illustration... all on iPad ProGnash
    • yeah man I got my first one in 12 years, the new pro, drawing and painting is phenomenal, plus it's perfect for what Gnash outlined, replaces a laptop imo_niko
    • plus sketching and creating art while on the couch watching TV or cafe/park has the Wacom beat hands down. no lag whatsoever ever too._niko
    • And I just installed a PaperLike screen overlay and drawing / writing is 100% nicerGnash
    • And PS and Illy OK on it?Centigrade
    • Ps is meh. but mostly because I haven’t taken the time to figure it out it’s limitations I only do basic PS stuff on the iPadGnash
    • It’s missing a lot of the desktop functionalityGnash
    • I haven’t gone too deep on illy yet. Mostly because a hated the feel of the pen on the glass. Now that I got the PaperLike I’m starting to use itGnash
    • Still haven’t settled for drawing. I’ve been using Procreate, Concepts, and Adobe fresco... among othersGnash
    • With illy, I’m just finding the transition to using a pen and no mouse/keyboard a bit hard for this old brain. But it opens my ai files fineGnash
    • Thanks for all the good info.Centigrade
    • Gnash, I thought you had mentioned hating the paper like screen in the past so I avoided getting it lol, do you find it dulls colours or anything?_niko
    • Pro + Pencil + Keyboard = fantasticnb
    • @niko, they came out with an upgraded version that’s better. I saw it at a local shop and thought I’d try it.Gnash
    • There is a slight visual issue -mostly because of my greazy finger smudges on the matte surface. But it’s much better that vrs 1Gnash
    • And I hated using the pencil so much on the glossy surface that I’m ok with the downside nowGnash

    Show some recent work

    Some personal work. My second son was born a month ago.

    Saul Ray’s birth card is a 28 page magazine.

    It celebrates beauty, flowers, typography and colours. It serves as an introduction to people and ideas we think will be valuable in his life.

    I’ve drawn these illustrations in last months in the late hours and are references to: Basquiat, The Moonlanding, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller, Keith Haring, Saul Leiter, Saul Bass, Saul Hudson (Slash), Saul Williams, Flowers, Where The Wild Things Are, ...

    The cover is an abstraction of a wild sunflower that blooms in August. The colours are bright and most of the text is set in bold, colourful type. Printed on Munken Pure Rough, a nice paper with natural colouring and a tactile feel.

    News of the day...

    This Gabby Petito case is truly something. Read some comments online and rabbit holed-it into finding out about this.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/…)

    The Zone of Death is the name given to the 50 sq mi (129.50 km2) Idaho section of Yellowstone National Park in which, as a result of a purported loophole in the Constitution of the United States, a criminal could theoretically avoid prosecution for any major crime, up to and including murder.

    • my gut tells name from that police video above that he either got fed up with her and left her in a remote area then came back and couldn't find her_niko
    • or she assaulted him again and he accidentally killed her, like shoved her away but she slipped/tripped and banged her head._niko
    • I don't think he's a master planner or psycho to pull that zone of death loophole off, seems so far-fetched_niko
    • ^ Not saying that’s what he did .. this loophole is definitely News of the Day to me.Ramanisky2
    • yeah it is interesting, especially since authorities refused to close that loophole even after it was brought to their attention by that Michigan Prof._niko
    • Sad, she's dead.utopian
