If I Were a Boy

Ang astig ng song na 'to no?

If I were a boy

Even just for a day
I’d roll outta bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted then go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I’d kick it with who I wanted
And I’d never get confronted for it.
Cause they’d stick up for me.


If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I’d be a better man.
I’d listen to her
Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
Cause he’s taken you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

If I were a boy
I could turn off my phone
Tell everyone it’s broken
So they’d think that I was sleepin’ alone
I’d put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I know that she’d be faithful
Waitin’ for me to come home (to come home)


It’s a little too late for you to come back
Say its just a mistake
Think I’d forgive you like that
If you thought I would wait for you
You thought wrong


But you’re just a boy
You don’t understand
Yeah you don’t understand
How it feels to love a girl someday
You wish you were a better man
You don’t listen to her
You don’t care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted
Cause you’ve taken her for granted
And everything you have got destroyed
But you’re just a boy

Geneva drive

The Geneva drive or Maltese cross is a mechanism that translates a continuous rotation into an intermittent rotary motion. It is an intermittent gear where the drive wheel has a pin that reaches into a slot of the driven wheel and thereby advances it by one step. The drive wheel also has a raised circular blocking disc that locks the driven wheel in position between steps.

Besides the external Geneva drive shown in the diagram above, there is also an internal Geneva drive. The external form is the more common, as it can be built smaller and can withstand higher mechanical stresses. The axis of the drive wheel of the internal Geneva drive can have a bearing only on one side. The angle by which the drive wheel has to rotate to effect one step rotation of the driven wheel is always smaller than 180° in an external Geneva drive and always greater than 180° in an internal one, where the switch time is therefore greater than the time the driven wheel stands still.



An autostereogram is a single-image stereogram (SIS), designed to create the visual illusion of a three-dimensional (3D) scene from a two-dimensional image in the human brain. In order to perceive 3D shapes in these autostereograms, the brain must overcome the normally automatic coordination between focusing and vergence.

When a series of autostereograms are shown one after another, in the same way moving pictures are shown, the brain perceives an animated autostereogram. If all autostereograms in the animation are produced using the same background pattern, it is often possible to see faint outlines of parts of the moving 3D object in the 2D autostereogram image without wall-eyed viewing; the constantly shifting pixels of the moving object can be clearly distinguished from the static background plane. To eliminate this side effect, animated autostereograms often use shifting background in order to disguise the moving parts.

Animal Camouflage

Instead of webs, the goldenrod crab spider, Misumena vatia, uses camouflage to ambush its prey, slowly changing color to match the flower on which it’s perched. It does this by moving yellow pigment closer to or farther from its outermost layer of cells. The species is most often found among yellow and white blooms, but it can morph into a green or bluish hue when necessary, or even take on reddish spots or stripes. Thus disguised, the arachnid waits frozen, its front legs poised to snap closed in a deadly embrace on hapless insects that come into range. The spider’s venomous bite can take down bugs as large as butterflies and bumblebees.

Here, a speckled sanddab nestles into the ocean floor, its skin mottled to mimic the pebbly background. A member of the flounder family, Citharichthys stigmaeus can change its topside appearance with cells called chromatophores. Pigment granules in these cells migrate closer to the cell surface to create patterns on its brown skin. This camouflage hides the fish from predators off the Pacific coast where it’s found and enables it to surprise its prey—smaller bony fishes, shrimp and worms.

Its unique black-and-white coloring helps the many-spotted tiger moth both stand out and blend in. Native to the western U.S., this moth may feed on mildly toxic plants like milkweed, taking the plant poisons into its own body as a natural defense against predators. Most often, the species’ white body advertises “I taste bad” to birds who spot it flying in the air, says biologist Rebecca Simmons of the University of North Dakota. But when it comes to rest against a dappled background, like the one pictured here, Hypercompe permaculata’s coloring also breaks up the outline of its body, allowing it to blend in and hide from birds that might not heed its white warning.

The round object in the center-right of this photo is no rock—it’s a rock ptarmigan hiding motionless among the stones and moss of the Alaskan tundra. (Look for its beak to spot its head.) In the winter snow, Lagopus muta exchanges its brown feathers for white, maintaining year-round protection from its main predator, the gyrfalcon. In the spring, males retain their white feathers after the snow disappears, advertising themselves to potential mates. Once they’ve mated, and before the brown feathers grow back, males roll around in the dirt, creating a makeshift camouflage, which is eventually replaced by a summer disguise like the one on the female shown here.

Huddled together against a rocky Canadian cliff face, a typical nesting site, these two gyrfalcon chicks blend into the marbled stone. Adult Falco rusticolus patrol the air in arctic regions, feeding on their tundra neighbors, the well-hidden ptarmigan and other smaller birds. Gyrfalcons are clad in inconspicuous gray, white and brown feathers, with a light underside.

Known for its distinctive high-pitched call, the spring peeper frog’s coloring ranges from grayish to reddish brown, a fitting adaptation to the leaves and dead grass of its wooded habitat in the eastern and midwestern United States. Darker markings, including the cross on its back, help break up Pseudacris crucifer’s silhouette against its surroundings. To add to the illusion, the tiny frog can also adjust its hue slightly within the gray-brown range to better match its environment.

Majesty in Gothic Architecture

The facade of a large church or cathedral, often referred to as the West Front, is generally designed to create a powerful impression on the approaching worshipper, demonstrating both the might of God, and the might of the institution that it represents. One of the best known and most typical of such facades is that of Notre Dame de Paris.

Central to the facade is the main portal, often flanked by additional doors. In the arch of the door, the tympanum, is often a significant piece of sculpture, most frequently Christ in Majesty and Judgment Day. If there is a central door jamb or a tremeu, then it frequently bears a statue of the Madonna and Child. There may be much other carving, often of figures in niches set into the mouldings around the portals, or in sculptural screens extending across the facade.

In the centre of the middle level of the facade, there is a large window, which in countries other than England and Belgium, is generally a rose window like that at Reims Cathedral. The gable above this is usually richly decorated with arcading or sculpture, or in the case of Italy, may be decorated, with the rest of the facade, with polychrome marble and mosaic, as at Orvieto Cathedral

The West Front of a French cathedral and many English, Spanish and German cathedrals generally has two towers, which, particularly in France, express an enormous diversity of form and decoration.[7][8] However, some German cathedrals have only one tower located in the middle of the facade (such as Freiburg Münster).

Happy Tree Friends

Ang saya saya talaga nila...

Happy Tree Friends (Often abbreviated as HTF) is a Flash cartoon series by Mondo Mini Shows, created by Rhode Montijo, Kenn Navarro, Warren Graff and Aubrey Ankrum. Since its debut the show has become a popular internet phenomenon and has won a cult following.

As indicated on the official site, it is "not recommended for small children". Notwithstanding the somewhat childish shape of the series and the cute appearance of its characters, the show is extremely violent, with nearly every episode featuring blood, gore, and extremely painful, bloody gruesome deaths. Hehehe...



Human glyoxalase I. Two zinc ions that are needed for the enzyme to catalyze its reaction are shown as purple spheres, and an enzyme inhibitor called S-hexylglutathione is shown as a space-filling model, filling the two active sites.

Enzymes are biomolecules that catalyze (i.e. increase the rates of) chemical reactions.[1][2] Almost all enzymes are proteins. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process are called substrates, and the enzyme converts them into different molecules, the products. Almost all processes in a biological cell need enzymes to occur at significant rates. Since enzymes are selective for their substrates and speed up only a few reactions from among many possibilities, the set of enzymes made in a cell determines which metabolic pathways occur in that cell.



Belfast Castle

Johnstown Castle

Castle definition:
Originally, a castle was a fortress built to protect strategic locations from enemy attack or to serve as a military base for invading armies. The earliest castles in Europe were constructed of earthwork and timber. Dating as far back as the 9th century, these early structures were often built over ancient Roman foundations. Over the next three centuries, wooden forts evolved into imposing stone walls with narrow windows and high parapets. By the 13th century, lofty stone towers were popping up across Europe. People seeking protection from invading armies built villages around established castles. Local nobility took the safest residences for themselves -- inside the castle walls. Castles became homes, and also served as important political centers. As Europe moved into the Renaissance, the role of castles became divided. Some were used as military fortresses, and were controlled by a monarch. Others were unfortified palaces, mansions, or manor homes and served no military function. Although Europe and Great Britain are famous for their castles, imposing fortresses and grand palaces have played an important role in most countries around the world. Japan is home to many impressive castles. Even the United States claims hundreds of modern "castles" built by wealthy businessmen. Also Known As: A castle built as a military stronghold may be called a fort, fortress, stronghold, or stronghouse. A castle built as a home for nobility is a palace. In France, a castle built for nobility may be called a chateau(the plural is chateaux).

Flying Buttresses

In order to prevent the outward collapse of the arches, Gothic architects began using a revolutionary "flying buttress" system. Freestanding brick or stone supports were attached to the exterior walls by an arch or a half-arch.

In this view of the Sainte-Chapelle in Riom, France, you can see the broad masonry buttresses extending from the stone pillars to the main wall of the cathedral. The Sainte-Chapelle in Riom is modeled after Louis IX's palace chapel in Paris.

I hung up the phone tonight
Something happened for the first time deep inside
It was a rush, what a rush

'Cause the possibility
That you would ever feel the same way about me
It's just too much, just too much

Why do I keep running from the truth?
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized
And I've just got to know


Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we can be, where this thing can go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?
Is it real or just another crush?
Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way I do?
'Cause I'm trying and trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy
Goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy

Has it ever crossed your mind
When we're hanging, spending time girl, are we just friends?
Is there more, is there more?

See it's a chance we've gotta take
'Cause I believe that we can make this into something that will last
Last forever, forever


Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we can be, where this thing can go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?
Is it real or just another crush?
Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way I do?
'Cause I'm trying and trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy
Goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy

Why do I keep running from the truth?
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized

Ribbed Vaulting

Earlier Romanesque churches relied on barrel vaulting. Gothic builders introduced the dramatic technique of ribbed vaulting.

While barrel vaulting carried weight on continuous solid walls, ribbed vaulting used columns to support the weight. The ribs also delineated the vaults and gave a sense of unity to the structure.

You can see the ribbed vaulting in the ceiling above this cloister at Royaumont Abbey in Asnières-sur-Oise, France.

Alnwick castle

According to my sources, ang shooting site ng Harry potter ay ang Alnwick castle, nanakapakita sa mga picture na ito.

Alnwick Castle was built in the mid 12th century, with a circular keep with five semi-circular towers adorned with pinnacles and battlements surrounding the great Castle. When you enter the second and third courts, through massive towers, you reach the inner court, that is the very center of the fortress. It is the second largest inhabited castle in England, second to Windsor Castle. It is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland whose family, the Percys have lived here since 1309. You may walk its wonderful halls and see such rooms as the Library, the Guard Chambers, the Saloon, the Drawing Room, and the Chapel, to name a few. It was a very large castle with lots to view inside and out.

Movies such as: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Elizabeth, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, and Ivanhoe are a few of the films filmed at Alnwick Castle.

Ang aking tula para sa filipino

Hello! Eto yung tula ko para sa Filipino. Sana matuwa kayo rito.

Tulang may malayang taludturan

Ang Mundo ng Dahon

Ang dahon

natanggal sa sangang wumawasiwas sa hagnin

ang dahon naalis sa malayang mundo ng mga panaginip

unti-unting tinatangay ng papalayo.

Ang hangin

tinatangay ang dahon

mula sa kanyang masasarap na panaginip

ng walang kamalayan,

di na maibabalik.

Ang bangin

patuloy na nilalamon ang ang dahong walang magawa


patungo sa mapanganib niyang sarili.

Ang bato,

na pinagulung-gulungan

ng marami nang dahon bago sa kanya,

muling natutuwa sa pagdating

ng kaibigang ligaw at malungkot.

At ang ilog

tinangay papalayo ang kaawa-awang dahon

pinatuloy ito sa kanyang payapang kaibuturan,

hanggang makalimutan na

ang lahat ng

Superstition Scientific Explanation

Superstition Scientific Explanation 2
Do not go along a path a black cat has just crossed.

According to belief, the cat had cast a bad mark on the path, and by crossing that line, the person is able to "catch" the mark, making him unlucky. But there is an exception, according to them, if the person didn't see the cat.
A probable reason for this is that by seeing the cat, the person feels that the journey will go bad so that his mind is blocked by negative thought. On the other hand, if this person does not see the cat, but it did cross his path, his mind becomes free from negative thought, making the day a really lucky one.

Superstition Scientific Explanation 1

Superstition Scientific Explanation 1
Do not continue your journey if you see a snake crossing your path.

This is because your journey will be unlucky, according to them.
The truth about this superstition is that being able to see a snake cross your path means that snakes live along that path. Therefore, continuing this journey can lead to your death, or to your doom.

Superstition Scientific Explanation

Hello to all of you out there. From now on, I am going to write blog posts labeled "Superstition Scientific Explanation", posts concerned about superstitions and their scientific explanations. A link on the right side of this blog will lead you to all posts concerning this. Hope you enjoy them!

The Large Hadron Collider

The Large Hadron Collider, a large atom smasher buried underground the French-Swiss border, had already fired its first beam yesterday, September 10, 2008.

Basically, the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is a huge machine that will make protons collide in order to see what these particles are made of by letting the particles move at a speed nearly equal to the speed of light. After that, the ATLAS and CMS (which are both particle detectors), will detect unusual parictles in the wreckage. With this, the scientists get the answers to the many questions that bothered them for years.

These are the facts about the LHC:
17 miles around. 9,000 magnets. 7,000 scientists. $10 billion. Operating temp: -456.25 F. Power used: 120 MW. Network: 1.8+Gb/s.

Theories that can be answered:
The Big Bang Theory

Best Case: The Large Hadron Colliders' ALICE experiment successfully creates quark-gluon plasma, a substance theorized to have existed just milliseconds after the Big Bang. By generating temperatures more than 100,000 times hotter than the sun, scientists hope to watch as this particle goo cools and expands into the particles that we know. That could help scientists answer why protons and neutrons weigh 100 times more than the quarks they're made of.

Worst Case: Scientists inadvertently make a micro black hole, and the earth is quickly erased from existence. Just kidding: scientists at CERN and elsewhere have ruled out the possibility that the LHC will create any kind of doomsday scenario. The black holes that the LHC could theoretically create don't even have enough energy to light up a light bulb. On the other hand, the U.K.'s Astronomer Royal put the odds of destroying the world at 1 in 50 million (which puts it in the realm of possibilities but still not as likely as hitting the lottery).

String Theory

Best Case: Scientists detect certain types of supersymmetric particles, aka sparticles, which physicist Michio Kaku calls, "signals from the 11th dimension." This would show that string theorists have been on the right path and that the universe really is made up of the four dimensions we experience and then seven others that unite the forces of nature.

Worst Case: String theory's basic assumptions are violated. The LHC will be the first particle accelerator capable of allowing scientists to study W bosons, the elementary particle responsible for the weak force. If they don't scatter in certain ways, it'll be back to the drawing board for a generation of string theorists, or as one physicist told New Scientist, "If we see these violations, people will start working very feverishly on some sort of alternative that will produce these violations."

The "Our Universe Is Not Alone" Theory

Best Case: If scientists find a long-lived gluino, the postulated supersymmetric partner of the gluon, one group of scientists argues that it can be seen as a "messenger from the multiverse" and will lend support to the theory that our universe is just one of many. (Keep in mind though: not everyone is buying this interpretation.)

Worst Case: Our universe really is alone. Or even worse: it's lonely.

The Dark Matter of the Universe Theory

Best Case: Astrophysicists currently believe that 96 percent of the universe is made up of dark matter and energy that we can't see and can barely detect. Dark matter alone is estimated to compose 26 percent of the universe, only we have no idea what it's made of. It has been postulated that the neutralino is the best candidate for dark matter. Many physicists hope that the neutralino -- which, if it exists, will be relatively easy to produce -- will make an appearance in the debris inside the CMS or Atlas detectors, confirming the theory of dark matter.

Worst Case: Proudly, physicists announce that they've observed dark matter's unmistakable signature inside one of the LHC's detectors. But over the next few weeks, the reality sinks in that they've actually made a measurement mistake. Some physicists don't think that the LHC will be precise enough to measure any dark matter that it's lucky enough to create.

The Standard Model of Particle Physics

Best Case: With the standard model so well elucidated, perhaps a curveball is in order. Sean Carroll of Cosmic Variance notes, "There is almost a guarantee that the Higgs exists, or at least some sort of Higgs-like particle," so perhaps the best scenario would be finding the Higgs-like particle rather than the Higgs itself. That wouldn't be such a radical break from the model such that all previous work is too highly devalued, and at the same time it could open new physics frontiers.

Worst Case: The Higgs boson -- the long-postulated particle that is supposed to give mass to particles -- is finally confirmed. Sure, discovering the Higgs at the LHC would be neat, but it would basically just confirm a lot of what physicists already know, without really pushing the science: Boring. Some scientists have even said that their worst case scenario for the entire collider project would be finding the Higgs and just the Higgs.

The Sine Function

The sine function is a really interesting thing to learn. But then it is a hard topic when it is included in the school curriculum because, even though it is interesting, the thought that it is included in your daily dose of requirements is a hard thing to accept.

Vertical Farming

The other processes inside:

LED bulbs save energy and can be tuned to the specific wavelengths favored by each species (only red for lettuce, for example).

Robotic arms equipped with mechanical noses “sniff” plants and harvest them based on the presence of specific alcohols, a more precise judge of ripeness than color.

Raising cattle is inefficient—only 3 percent of the energy used to raise a cow ends up as protein on your plate. Instead, scientists will cultivate slabs of meat in the lab from chicken, pig or cow stem cells raised on a diet of water, glucose and natural proteins. To approximate the texture of meat, they will “exercise” the muscle with electrical pulses. The fatty texture of a porterhouse is too complex to replicate, but sausage and chicken nuggets should be routine in a decade.

New Technology

Vertical farming is a farming strategy in which plants are grown inside urban high-rises. These buildings are called "farmscrapers". Farmscrapers can also house livestock and fish. With this kind of strategy, fruit, vegetables, fish, and livestock would be produced year-round in cities which can help the cities become self-sufficient. The farming techniques used in these farmscrapers would also include recycling of materials and other greenhouse methods.Wind power, solar power, and incineration of raw sewage and the inedible portion of harvested crops can also be included in the farmscrapers to power the building. To see a video about this, click here.

Small space is used
Faster transport of products
Products become more readily available
Crops can be produced in large quantities through combining hydroponic, aeroponic and other related growing methods.

Vertical Farming

Vertical-axis wind turbines are potentially 50 percent more efficient in low wind conditions than conventional turbines.

Ceiling-mounted systems monitor and control humidity, temperature, and nutrient distribution.

Farmers load harvested plants onto a central elevator to be sold at the grocery store below.

Even a few insects or pathogens could decimate the enclosed crops, so farmers entering the building must don containment suits and pass through airlocks. Scientists will coat plants with genetically modified bacteria that glow in the presence of a threatening disease or pest, alerting farmers to an outbreak.
Plants don’t have millions of years to adapt to indoor hydroponic growth cycles, so botanists must select and breed the strains that perform best. Other scientists will blend specialized fertilizers for the plants so that they’ll contain micronutrients essential to the human diet, like selenium and zinc.

Chickens require little space and yield one pound of meat per two pounds of feed—very efficient by farming standards.

Neighbors purchase vertical-farm goods in the tower’s ground-floor grocery store, and electric trucks deliver food to local markets.
