A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband was not in their bed.
She puts on her dressing gown and goes downstairs to look for him.
She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.
She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee.
‘What’s the matter, dear?’ she whispers as she steps into the room, ‘Why are you down here at this time of night?’
The husband looks up from his coffee, ‘I am just remembering when we first met 20 years ago and started dating. You were only 16. Do you remember back then?’ he says solemnly.
The wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring, so sensitive.
‘Yes, I do,’ she replies.
The husband pauses. The words were not coming easily..
‘Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?’
‘Yes, I remember!’ said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.
The husband continues. ‘Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, ‘Either you marry my daughter, or I will send you to jail for 20 years?’
‘I remember that too’ she replies softly.
He wipes another tear from his cheek and says…
‘I would have been released today. ‘

We all knew this day would eventually come and now it has arrived, the conducting of an investigation by the International Criminal Court (ICC) into Israeli actions during their wars against Arab forces which instigated these wars and skirmishes by their terrorist activities. The area of scrutiny will be this past summer’s war between Gaza Hamas terrorists who had initiated the conflict with the launching of thousands of rockets into Israeli towns and cities aiming not for military targets but for civilian homes, businesses as well as schools, camps, daycares, hospitals and other civilian locations. ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said her office would conduct an “analysis in full independence and impartiality” into supposed war crimes by Israel, including accusations from Hamas’s most recent terror war against Israel last summer. The Honorable Fatou Bensouda is currently one of the Chief Prosecutors of the International Criminal Court where she had previously…

John Edmark, an inventor/designer/artist that teaches design at Stanford, has created a series of 3D printed “Fibonacci Zoetrope” sculptures that come to life when spun under a strobe light or are captured by a video camera with a very fast shutter speed.
In the hypnotic video above, the 3D printed sculptures are spinning at 550 RPMs while being videotaped at 24 FPS with a shutter speed of 1/4000 sec (instead of using a strobe light). The rotation speed is carefully synchronized to the camera’s frame rate so that one frame of video is captured every time the sculpture turns approximately 137.5 degrees?the golden angle.
Each petal on the sculpture is placed at a unique distance from the top-center of the form. If you follow what appears to be a single petal as it works its way out and down the sculpture, what you are actually seeing is all…
