Behind the Scenes look at the first 3-D Printed Presidential Portraits – Science & Technology at the White House

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:
-

The very first 3D-printed bust of a sitting U.S. president made its debut.  The bust of President Obama was created by a Smithsonian-led team of 3D-digital-imaging specialists, Autodesk and 3D Systems, in collaboration with the University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies. It took two different technologically sophisticated 3D documentation processes to generate the data needed to create this portrait.

The Behind-the Scenes video below is fascinating.  I came across this story in December when I was blogging about the 2014 Kennedy Center Honorees and found the another fascinating story regarding the first ever 3-D Christmas Ornament.

March 23, 2015
Excerpts from:

Remarks by the President at White House Science Fair

“This is our fifth White House Science Fair.  And every year, I walk out smarter than I walked in, because these young people have something to teach all of us — not just about batteries, or attacking cancer cells, or how to build a working robot or a rocket.” 

“But these young scientists and engineers teach us something beyond the specific topics that they’re exploring.  They teach us how to question assumptions; to wonder why something is the way it is, and how we can make it better.  And they remind us that there’s always something more to learn, and to try, and to discover, and to imagine — and that it’s never too early, or too late to create or discover something new.” 

“That’s why we love science.  It’s more than a school subject, or the periodic table, or the properties of waves.  It is an approach to the world, a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world, and to share this accumulated knowledge.  It’s a mindset that says we that can use reason and logic and honest inquiry to reach new conclusions and solve big problems.  And that’s what we are celebrating here today with these amazing young people.”

Freep Film Festival: Internal Combustion Saturday, March 21st 6:30pm Detroit Film Theatre

 Freep Film Festival:   Internal Combustion 
Saturday, March 21st 6:30pm 
Detroit Film Theatre

-
Director Steve Faigenbaum’s return to Detroit after a 25-year absence jolts him into a introspective and expansive exploration of the collapse of a once-great city as he compares it to touchstones in his own family’s history: The Jewish immigrant experience against the African-American experience, the riots of 1943 and 1967, fears surrounding the Vietnam War, white flight to the suburbs, the auto industry’s ebbs and flows, and the ultimate question of whether or not Detroit can rise again. Using archival footage,
 -
Faigenbaum effectively portrays Detroit as a complicated city so often at war with itself. It’s a good reminder that city’s problems – and its optimism – go back much further than the recent past of bankruptcy, Kwame and the Great Recession. Modern-day testimony around the 1969 violence between Republic of New Africa members and Detroit police is particularly compelling. “Internal Combustion” ends with an appearance by activist Grace Lee Boggs, who provides an ideal summation: “It’s the end of something here in Detroit and therefore a challenge to create something new…We have to…have a sense of history and how so many societies have come and gone because they weren’t able to look at themselves and what was happening to them.”   U.S. premiere. (86 min.)

After the film:  Free Press Editorial Page Editor Stephen Henderson will lead a discussion with director Steve Faigenbaum and Kimberly L. Simmons, a historian and founder of the Detroit River Project.

Russell Simmons: 3 Simple Ways Meditation Will Make You a Better Entrepreneur – Complimentary 21-Day Meditation Experience “Manifesting True Success” starts tomorrow Mon., Mar. 16th

Leave a comment

Bonjour!

-
Russell Simmons, the co-founder of Def Jam, has an astute business acumen that’s made him one of the most successful businessmen of our time. He’s built empires that span a variety of industries, including fashion, film, music, digital media and financial services. It’s his personal undertakings, however, that have afforded him his greatest successes. Those personal undertakings?  Yoga and meditation.
-
“I discovered meditation through my yoga practice. Meditation is the most powerful part of yoga. I started going to yoga because of the hot girls, and I got addicted,” Simmons laughs.

“The idea of being present, and not being rushed, was so appealing to me. I was running around frantically at the time. Meditation, it’s benefited me greatly. You can’t get no money when you’re living in the past or the future. You’ve gotta be present.”
