Anonymous asked: Favorite movies of the past year?
i’ve been into japanese drama lately.. so i wasn’t really paying attention to great movies out there, but i gotta say i have no regret spent bucks on cinema watching Ender’s Game and Gravity. And not to mention The Hunger Games : Catching Fire
And when i happened to be awake at midnight, i was just switching channels and found these interesting old movies :Mississippi Burning, Singing in the Rain and another one with Marlon Brando in it, i forget the title.
As for Japanese movie i recommend Confession (2010) and Noruwei no Mori (2010).
Sorry that’s all i ever watched back then, Jpop culture and Dan Brown’s books were invading my mind constantly.
The years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It’s then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult – but you are not ready.Helen Mirren (via chasseurseul)

Motorola has announced a free, open hardware platform for smartphones called “Project Ara.” The goal is to create a modular smartphone that would allow users to swap hardware components at will.
As its precursor Phonebloks, this is a seriously cool concept. However, there are a lot of ifs (and hard work) before we will see any actual Project Ara devices.
Introverts are observant by nature. They’re the quiet ones who prefer to sit at the sidelines and observe those around them. And no, they’re not judging people when they do this. This also doesn’t mean that introverts are wallflowers. They can talk your ear off if the topic is something they’re passionate or know a lot about. They simply don’t feel the need nor have the energy to be social butterflies.
As Susan Cain puts it, “We’re not anti-social; we’re just differently social.”

Is the Brain Unisex?
Gender is hugely complex, and humans have long realised that it’s not necessarily binary and it doesn’t necessarily match up to biological sex. Research is now beginning to catch up with these ideas. In one study, researchers Gero Miesenböeck from the Oxford University and J. Dylan Clyne from Yale University looked into the neurological differences between male and female fruit flies. To attract a mate, male fruit flies ‘sing’ by sticking out one wing and vibrating it, but the 2,000 neurons responsible for this behaviour are actually present in females too—so Miesenböeck and Clyne wondered why their behaviours differed. They genetically modified the flies so a beam of light could activate the courtship neurons, then placed a female in a ‘miniature sound studio’ that could pick up any tiny noise. A pulse of light was targeted at the neurons responsible for singing, and this artificial trigger caused the female fly to stick out her wing and sing. Professor Miesenböeck comments, “When we analysed the songs, we found there were subtle differences—the pitch was a bit off, the rhythm was off, the song, overall, was less well controlled.” This is probably due to subtly different wiring, but the fact she played at all is fascinating. It suggests that the wiring for both sexes is very similar, so what determines behaviour is not the existence of a certain group of neurons, but whether those neurons are switched on. There must be some kind of “master switch” that sets the gender of the fly, or perhaps more individual switches for different groups of behaviour. The next goal is to find these switches. The brains of flies are a far cry from our own, but it’s intriguing anyway—it could help explain a lot about the gap many of us experience between gender and sex.
I am in the senior year of university life, which in my country somehow referring to the most highest holier-than-thou level of seniority. Few days ago i was in charge of giving orientation to freshmen using pretty much cruelty, we were yelling and scolding freshmen as if their basic rights was just removed completely, no physic “demonstration” though..
I am against it, when i was a freshman i had much worse orientation given by batch 2008, it was very bad that almost everyone in my batch was crying. So i can pretty much related to their feelings, tho mine was worse than theirs. The point is, in this post, i hope in future the system could be better, yelling and scolding can’t help building freshmen’s character. Cheers
