”The elements used referred to the graphics of Russian constructivism at the beginning of the 20th century, who used black and red. The cover is also inspired by the work of other artists, notably those of Lincoln Agnew, who has produced numerous graphic subjects for M.”

An Israeli company says it has pushed back the launch of what it hopes will be the first private spacecraft to land on the moon.
Officials from SpaceIL and the state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries told reporters that the landing craft, dubbed Beresheet – or Genesis, will travel in February to Florida, where, propelled by a SpaceX Falcon rocket launch, it will commence its months-long voyage to the moon.
It had been planned to launch this month.
Israel Aerospace Industries manager Opher Doron stressed that the small craft, about the size of a washing machine, faces a “difficult, arduous journey” because it will have to make a number of orbits before landing.
If successful, the team promises the landing will be a breakthrough for Israeli technology and commercial space travel.
Israeli engineers on Monday added the final element to a spacecraft destined for the moon – a digital time capsule – saying they aim to land the craft early next year, somewhere between the landing sites of Apollo 15 and 17. It will be the first mission of its kind since 2013. If it is successful, Israel will be the fourth country to carry out a controlled “soft” landing of an unmanned vessel on the moon. Since 1966, the US and the former Soviet Union have put around a dozen of them on the moon and China last did so in 2013. “The spacecraft is completely built, tested… and will be ready to ship to Cape Canaveral in a few weeks,” according to Ido Anteby, CEO of the SpaceIL non-profit that has led the project. The craft, is shaped like a round table with four carbon-fiber legs, stands about 1.5 meters tall and weighs 585 kg, with fuel accounting for two-thirds of that weight. It will blast off from Florida on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
Womens in blood-red hoodies covered in silver paint evoked the French revolutionary icon on Champs-Elysees avenue on Saturday.
Their appearance was in stark contrast to the black and blue uniforms of gendarmes and police officers, and the yellow vests of hundreds of protesters around them.
Marianne, the Goddess of Liberty, is a national symbol of the French Republic which stands opposed to the monarchy and champions freedom and democracy.
She is depicted as an embodiment of liberty leading the people over the barricades in the iconic Eugene Delacroix’s painting.

Rams introduced the idea of sustainable development and of obsolescence being a crime in design in the 1970s. Accordingly he asked himself the question: is my design good design? The answer formed his now celebrated ten principles.
- Is innovative – The possibilities for progression are not, by any means, exhausted. Technological development is always offering new opportunities for original designs. But imaginative design always develops in tandem with improving technology, and can never be an end in itself.
- Makes a product useful – A product is bought to be used. It has to satisfy not only functional, but also psychological and aesthetic criteria. Good design emphasizes the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could detract from it.
- Is aesthetic – The aesthetic quality of a product is integral to its usefulness because products are used every day and have an effect on people and their well-being. Only well-executed objects can be beautiful.
- Makes a product understandable – It clarifies the product’s structure. Better still, it can make the product clearly express its function by making use of the user’s intuition. At best, it is self-explanatory.
- Is unobtrusive – Products fulfilling a purpose are like tools. They are neither decorative objects nor works of art. Their design should therefore be both neutral and restrained, to leave room for the user’s self-expression.
- Is honest – It does not make a product appear more innovative, powerful or valuable than it really is. It does not attempt to manipulate the consumer with promises that cannot be kept.
- Is long-lasting – It avoids being fashionable and therefore never appears antiquated. Unlike fashionable design, it lasts many years – even in today’s throwaway society.
- Is thorough down to the last detail – Nothing must be arbitrary or left to chance. Care and accuracy in the design process show respect towards the consumer.
- Is environmentally friendly – Design makes an important contribution to the preservation of the environment. It conserves resources and minimizes physical and visual pollution throughout the lifecycle of the product.
- Is as little design as possible – Less, but better – because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.
The appearance of the calculator application included in iOS 3 mimics the appearance of the 1987 Braun ET 66 calculator designed by Rams and Dietrich Lubs, and the appearance of the now playing screen in Apple’s own Podcast app mimics the appearance of the Braun TG 60 reel-to-reel tape recorder. In Gary Hustwit’s 2009 documentary film Objectified, Rams states that Apple Inc. is one of the few companies designing products according to his principles.

Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1568) – The Blind Leading the Blind, De parabel der blinden
Each figure has a different eye affliction.
In contrast to earlier depictions of the blind as beneficiaries of divine gifts, Bruegel’s men are stumbling and decrepit, and portrayed without sympathy. They are well dressed.
… let’s start with decentralization.
It’s easy to understand since email is a decentralized and federated service we all use, or used once.
Decentralized means everybody can send email to anybody, and in turn receive email from anybody. All these emails are stored at your inbox and outbox.
Sounds natural right?
But if you check your networks — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Telegram, Tumblr, Tinder, what else? — they are all centralized.
Which means no one from Facebook can send or receive a Tweet; you can’t read your Tinder messages in Messenger. Half of your music is on Spotify, another half in Apple Music. Your friends’ music is on Google Music so you can’t access them.
Every piece of content is walled into their respective owner’s garden without any ways to interact with each other, grow freely, and grow the authors.
But wait, who will pay for it, and with what currency? Up until now you’ve paid with your attention to ads in exchange for the data you’ve stored on Facebook. That’s why all these old social networks were closed and ”free”.
In fact, they were data hosting companies where the currency was advertising and attention. And they’ve closely guarded their assets — you – with logins everywhere, separating you from other networks.
…, monoliths are decomposed into micro-services, and either you stay small for free, or have to pay to more, more, and more to get on the train of the ever growing new and handy services.
