The Ripple Effect

June 15th, 2010

Fair warning: This blog post is going to possess a lot less snark than I tend to write with here.

First off I’d like to say, it’s really inspiring to watch a grass roots effort take hold and mobilize a group of people. I was pointed in the direction of fellow illustrator Kelly Light’s amazing efforts over the weekend, through multiple folks on my Twitter follow list. Through numerous small steps and what I can only assume is an amazing amount of elbow grease Kelly has started the ripplesketches blog. With it she’s been putting up her own and other’s donated sketchcards or prints, selling them for the price of a ten dollar donation to either The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies or The International Bird Rescue Research Center .

It’s just that simple. She stood up and said out loud she wasn’t going to sit by doing nothing. Instead she used what she had at her disposal, and tried to make something happen. And you know what? It IS happening. In just a few short days and through word of mouth the project has raised as of last update 2,000 dollars. With what I can only imagine is no end in sight.

The cards I’ve submitted will be in the post to their new home tomorrow (Thanks Charlotte if you happen to be reading!). BUT, in saying this there are so many great pieces still available, by so many great artists.

One last plug, go check out the ripplesketches blog, and buy something great, while doing something great.

I’m happy to say in a small way I was a part of this. Thanks again Kelly, for everything you are doing.

    Can i bring my foundation overseas? Yes, you can bring your foundation overseas.

    And you are allowed to put it in your carry-on There is no restriction specifically on cosmetics in carry-on. I don’t know why people think that.
    You could bring a suitcase full of solid cosmetics like eye pencils and
    powder and the security people wouldn’t… show more Yes, you can bring your foundation overseas.

    There is no restriction specifically on cosmetics in carry-on. I don’t know why people think that.
    You could bring a suitcase full of solid cosmetics like eye
    pencils and powder and the security people wouldn’t
    care a bit. What there is, is a restriction on the size and total quantity of bottles
    or tubes of “liquids, creams, and gels”.
    It’s called the 3-1-1 rule, and it is enforced by the TSA Read this explanation carefully: 1) Liquids, creams
    and gels must be in containers that cannot hold
    more than 100ml. A half-empty 200 ml container would not be allowed.
    Even water cannot be in a larger bottle. It doesn’t matter if the containers are glass or plastic or anything else.
    If they leak or break, that’s your problem, not security’s problem.
    And you’re not going to drop your own luggage off
    a balcony, are you? 2) All such containers must fit into a one-quart zip-top bag, and you must be able to close the bag with everything in it.

    I use a Ziploc brand medium size freezer bag, but
    it doesn’t matter as long as it’s the right size and type.
    3) Each passenger can only have one of these one-quart bags.
    If something won’t fit into that one bag, then it has to go
    in checked luggage. If you try to sneak something past them, they’ll confiscate it and you don’t get it back.
    The TSA doesn’t make any restrictions on liquids in checked
    bags. Your airline probably does, and that info will be on its website.

    What is the maximum range of an airgun pellet?

    PBR = Point Blank Range Muzzle energy / ft-lbs to Joules 600 x 600
    x 10.5 divided by 450240 = 8.395ft-lbs 8.395 x 1.356 = 11.384 joules Maximum range?
    If you’re talking about hunting, the utmost “effective” range depends on the overall game.
    For rabbit(minimum 5ft-pounds at impact) that’s going to…

    Do I want a rifled choke to shoot slugs out of a smoothbore barrel, or will rifled slugs independently
    be fine without a choke at all? My estimation only
    so execute a little analysis and find what`s best for you.
    What I would choose for me to end up being as accurate as I could be
    (in my comfort and ease range) by my very own evaluation, is to shoot non-rifled, slugs from
    a soft bore with a rifled choke.(Lee Important Drive 1 oz
    slug for rifled choke) Yes, that little length of rifling does help IMHO
    but not a dire necessity nor a drastic improvement of
    accuracy within the number I would utilize
    them. I have little faith in rifled slugs basically believing they do
    not perform up to statements and surely anticipate some shooters to
    differ.
