Difference Between Art and Fine Art

Van-Eyck-fine-art

The difference between “art” and “fine art”, is that “art” is a “piece which moves the observer” whilst “fine art” is a “piece which moves the observer without directing them where to go and allows the observer to feel as though they understand the artists intention when creating the piece”. Fine art can relay messages across generational time gaps accurately, with force and measure. This is why many fine artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Pablo Picasso are so famous across decades and centuries; everyone who views their work, appreciates their work, and understands that their work is not just a picture, for the sake of creating a picture

The Contradiction of Radical Islamic Terrorism

radical-Islamic-terrorism

Radicalized Islamic terrorists and their supporters say that Jihad states in the Quran to “kill the un-believers, wherever you find them” which they use to justify terrorism and murder. In reality, they are twisting the actual words and context of the Quran. If read from front to back, reading Verse 1, and then after Verse 5, instead of only Verse 5, of Surah at-Tawbah, the Quran states [This is a declaration of disassociation, from Allah and his Messenger] “to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists”, meaning “to the pagans you have drafted a treaty with”, “expected are those with whom you made a treaty among the polytheists” meaning that “the statement only applies to the pagans, not the polytheists who did not break the treaty and fight against Muslims, simply because they followed Islam”. The context is incredibly specific and only applies to a small group of individuals, but radicalized Islamic terrorists and their sympathizers, either purposefully or unknowingly (it doesn’t matter, as they are both incorrect) are going against the word of the Quran

S.O.S.

Titanic-distressed

The acronym S.O.S. does not stand for anything, contrary to popular belief. It is commonly believed that S.O.S stands for “save our souls” amongst other variations of this motif which eludes to a need for rescue, salvage, or salvation. The acronym S.O.S was invented during the early 20th century as it was simple to send via morse code which only requires the operator send “dot-dot-dot, dash-dash-dash, and finally dot-dot-dot” to get their message of a need for help, across to another party

Hair Growth

Hair grows at a rate of 4.6 yoctometres per 1 femtosecond. The yoctometre is the smallest derivation of the meter within the standard SI unit of measurement. 1 meter is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1 septillion or 10^24) yoctometers. 1 femtosecond is nearly the smallest derivation of the second within the standard SI unit of measurement (the smallest being an attosecond which is 10^17). 1 second is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000 (1 quadrillion or 10^15) femtoseconds

Vision of Toads

If a toad is put into a tank with dead worms, it will starve to death because it won’t recognize the worms as food. Toads have evolved to only see horizontal lines moving as food. This theory was tested in the 1970’s, when scientists put a toad in a glass jar and had a vertical line pass by to which the toad did nothing, almost as if it has no clue of the line in front of it which looked like a worm standing straight up. Once the line was changed to become horizontal, the toad immediately tried to eat the horizontal line which mimicked a wormlike insect. Toads have a very unsophisticated visual spectrum. They basically think that if whatever they’re looking at appears to be a worm, then chances are it is and that it’s safe to ingest. This visual model is flawed because the toad is easily fooled giving it a disadvantage both in catching prey, and in becoming prey
