I am not a girl of half passion.
I dive in the void as birds that can’t fly
I fell in love and I suffered.
I didn’t despise enough…
Hate was never my master.
I preferred the beating to the blows.
I fell a thousand times.
Only to getting up one more time.
When we learn to walk, this is how we do.
We advance.
This is a long road.
I chose the obsessions: They invade you.
It is soft and round in the stomach.
It is being built and palpitates.
I would like to be able to think in cycles.
I have never appreciated the lukewarm behaviors.
It is erased.
The red heat ravages all on its passage.
It whirls toward the sky.
I don’t like the halves: I want all.
I want it complete.
I want in grand.
I can balance.
I have forgotten my nets

Motives behind the chemical strikes: the theory of a rebel advance

Note: interesting repeat of same scenario and faked news since 2013.

Following the August 21 attack on Eastern Ghouta, which the US and a number of other states say were carried out by the Syrian regime using nerve agents, skeptical observers have questioned the absence of a discernible motive for the regime to commit such a brazen violation of Obama’s stated “red line,” right under the nose of UN chemical weapons inspectors.

(The US Trump repeated the same faked news excuses, with the same colonial powers of France and England)

After all, they say, there was no military necessity to employ such weapons given the regime’s advances in recent months using conventional weaponry and amid the likelihood of provoking a response from the US.

By any measure, it appeared a reckless move and colossal miscalculation.

Syrian regime allies on the other hand deny the regime’s responsibility on grounds that it would have been “utter nonsense” for government troops to use such tactics in a war it was already winning, to borrow a phrase from Vladimir Putin.

Were rebels threatening the regime in Damascus?

Some commentators and opposition supporters have countered that the Syrian government was, in reality, on the defensive against opposition forces in recent weeks, and that rebels have been making steady gains since late July from Eastern Ghouta – where the chemicals were then unleashed – toward the capital’s center.

The main source to support this claim appears to be an August 9 piece by Elizabeth O’Bagy titled “The opposition advances in Damascus,” published on the website of the Institute for the Study of War (ISW.)[1]

When are you to decide “to become what you are”

Il est tellement important de laisser certaines choses disparaître. De s’en libérer. De s’en défaire.

Il faut comprendre que personne ne joue avec des cartes truquées (s’il le savait?), parfois on gagne, et parfois on perd.

N’attendez pas que l’on vous rende quelque chose, n’attendez pas que l’on reconnaisse vos efforts, que l’on découvre votre génie, …que l’on comprenne votre amour.

Vous devez clore des cycles.

Non par fierté, par incapacité, ou par orgueil mais simplement parce que ce qui précède n’a plus sa place dans votre vie. (Ou ne devrait pas?)

Fermez la porte, changez de disque, faites le ménage, secouez la poussière.

Cessez d’être ce que vous étiez, et devenez ce que vous êtes. –


It is so important to leave some things disappear. To be free. To discard.It must be understood that no one plays with faked cards, sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Do not wait that making you something, do not wait that we recognize your efforts, that we discover your genius,.. .that understand your love. You must close cycles. Not by pride, incapacity, or pride but simply because the foregoing does have its place in your life.Close the door, change the disk, clean, shake the dust.Stop being what you were, and become what you are. -Coelho

A comment from Jamil Berry:

Why hassle with all the social sciences and Humanities if we are doomed to read the Coelholeulogie

This ranting to “close” the past squarely forget that what we are is the tip of the iceberg. Any part of us interact and learn and endure and evolve or atrophied. This demagogue is the best killers of human thought believes we are compartmentalized as submarines, live it by locking tightly compartment before opening another and so on?

Tidbits and notes posted on FB and Twitter. Part 193

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pa attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

The ancient Greeks came up with a system called the Sieve of Eratosthenes for easily determining which numbers are prime. It works by simply eliminating the multiples of each prime number. Any numbers left over will be prime. (The ancient Greeks couldn’t do this in gifs, though.)

“Primes seem to me to be these un-arbitrary, unique, fated things. It cannot be coincidence that the mythical numbers of storytelling like 3, 7, and 13 are random. The lower-end primes have incredible resonance in fiction and art.”— Robin Sloan,

Robin Sloan wrote the bestselling mystery Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, in which every number was a prime (except 24 of course).

Usage of Prime Numbers:

1) Getting into Gear

Before primes were used to encrypt information, their only true practical use was at the auto-body shop. The gears in a car—and every other machine—work most reliably when the teeth are arranged by prime numbers. When gears have 13 or 17 or 23 teeth, it ensures that every gear combination is used, which helps to evenly distribute dirt, oil, and overall wear and tear.

2) Talking with Aliens

In his sci-fi novel Contact, Carl Sagan suggested that humans could communicate with aliens through prime numbers. This wasn’t a new idea. In the summer of 1960, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory searched for intelligent extraterrestrial messages by searching for prime numbers. Years later, the astronomer Frank Drake proposed that humans could communicate with aliens by transmitting “semiprimes”—that is, multiples of two prime numbers—into space.

3) Making Nature’s Music

The French modernist composer Olivier Messiaen wrote music containing transcribed birdsong and prime numbers, which helped create unusual and unpredictable rhythms, note duration, and time signatures. Messiaen, a Roman Catholic, said that musical prime numbers represented the indivisibility of God. His Liturgie de Cristal is a grand example. Listen to Messien put prime numbers into practice here.

A “prime-numbered life cycle had the most successful survival strategy” in nature, since cycles of boom and drop of resources are consistent and predictable

An emirp is a prime number that, when its decimal digits are reversed, results in a different prime. Think 13, 17, 31, 37, 71, 73, 79 …. According to Wikipedia, the largest known emirp is 10^10006+941992101×10^4999+1.

Mersenne prime numbers, named after a 17th-century French monk, are a special breed: They’re prime numbers that are one less than a power of two

Jonathan Pace is one of the volunteers participating in the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search GIMPS. The prime he discovered (notated as 2^77,232,917-1) contains 23,249,425 digits—nearly a million digits longer than the previous record holder.

Since 1996, GIMPS volunteers have discovered 16 new numbers. “There are tens of thousands of computers involved in the search. On average, they are finding less than one a year.” (He was awarded $3,000 for 14 years of work)

Mathematician G H Hardy wrote that he avoided “practical” mathematics: it was dull and too often exploited for military gain. His discoveries in Prime Numbers were useful: They’ve aided the fields of genetics research, quantum physics, and thermodynamics. Today, his research on the distribution of prime numbers is the bedrock for our current understanding of how prime numbers operate.
