Inspiration & Textures )

Rules:

* Make a rainbow! It works like this:

* Choose five consecutive colors from the color bands in the inspiration section above and make five icons in these five colors

* Each icon has to be primarily in that one color, but not strictly monochrome, as you can tell from the inspiration examples.
* You may (but don't have to) use the textures provided in the middle part of the inspiration section.
* If you can't finish your set, it is okay to enter fewer than five icons, but the colors of the icons you enter still need to be consecutive.
* Please submit your icons (icons and URLs) to this post, all in one comment (if possible).
* Everyone can participate, you don't have to be a member of this community.

* I collect all the icons from the comments and make a result post
* Everyone can leave comments on the inspiration and activity result posts
* There is no voting

Deadline: Saturday, June 17 2017, your end-of-day

Which of you mentioned "cultural appropriation" to Orson Scott Card?

Also, are Irish accents really as hard as all that for Americans to understand?

One of the benefits of being on a higher floor of the hotel, even if this also means a lot of rather tedious waiting for lifts. I was going to take and post a photo, but I really don't think that my present state of tiredness is a good state in which to get to grips with DW photo posting. Also, on essaying to take a photo for later presentation, realised that the grimy marks on the window would be rather obtrusive.

Quite a full day, which started with waking up rather earlier than I had hoped, but not horribly so.

Socialising has taken place. There was going to be a walk, but then it started to rain (I wouldn;t say there was no chance of a walk that day, but not at that particular time).

Also have been on one panel, which I think suffered a little from ambiguity in framing its terms but nonetheless evoked some interesting discussion.

Observations of note: in the stuffed toy and knickknackery shop just around the corner in State Street, there is a stufft swan, right at the front of the window display: also an inflatable pool version. However, I should eschew props for my reading.

So I've been sitting on this poem trying to figure out how to edit some things that aren't how I want them, but a friend wanted to be able to link someone to it, so it had to be somewhere, so.

As is frequently the case with things I post, the following is a work of fiction.

but that does mean I never got around to editing. )

It's public now that Trump's son-in-law is the focal point of the Russia investigation -- but Jeff Sessions didn't disclose his Russian contacts when he applied for his security clearance. And Michael Flynn gets more subpoenas and a reminder that he's not getting immunity from prosecution for anything.

The NEA statement on being asked to close by Trump.

The Pentagon's response when Trump blew his mouth off in the Philippines: "We do not talk about subs. Ever."

The science behind why people lie. Very relevant to the current politics.

The House has dismantled a permits system that gave us protection against pesticides in our common water supplies. What do they think we're drinking, imported champagne?

The Fourth US Circuit Court of Appeals rules against Trump's travel ban, again. Here's the published opinion. Do read this, just for the list of who's bringing the lawsuit. Quoting from this document:

The question for this Court, distilled to its essential form, is whether the
Constitution, as the Supreme Court declared in Ex parte Milligan, 71 U.S. (4 Wall.) 2,
120 (1866), remains “a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace.” And if
so, whether it protects Plaintiffs’ right to challenge an Executive Order that in text speaks
with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance,
animus, and discrimination. Surely the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment yet
stands as an untiring sentinel for the protection of one of our most cherished founding
principles—that government shall not establish any religious orthodoxy, or favor or
disfavor one religion over another. Congress granted the President broad power to deny
entry to aliens, but that power is not absolute. It cannot go unchecked when, as here, the
President wields it through an executive edict that stands to cause irreparable harm to
individuals across this nation. Therefore, for the reasons that follow, we affirm in
substantial part the district court’s issuance of a nationwide preliminary injunction as to
Section 2(c) of the challenged Executive Order....


Former CIA Director John Brennan urges us to resist.

The Senate seeks a lifetime ban on Congressmen returning as lobbyists.

The ACLU demands an immediate end to using drivers' license photos for law enforcement facial recognition.

What happens when ou leave 15,000 coins on a sidewalk in London?

I know I linked this before, but it deserves to be here again, because it's beautiful.

For 15kisses.
