This is a line-by-line analysis of the second verse of 99 Problems by Jay-Z, from the perspective of a criminal procedure professor.  It’s intended as a resource for law students and teachers, and for anyone who’s interested in what pop culture gets right about criminal justice, and what it gets wrong.

Awesome.

Brazilian artists Gabriel Primo, left, and Tiago Primo sit in their installation art work, exhibited on the wall of a building, in Rio de Janeiro (2009).

Two brothers in Rio are living over the edge – literally: sleeping, working and eating on the side of a building 33 feet (10 meters) up in the air.
Twenty-seven-year-old Tiago Primo and his 20-year-old brother Gabriel spend 12 hours a day in the bed, hammock, chair and dining table they’ve attached to a bright red-and-yellow wall as part of an art exhibit in Rio’s old center.
The brothers are equipped with mountain climbing gear, and if nature calls, can scramble over to the verandah of a neighboring art gallery, where an indoor bathroom awaits.

Number 2. So, I don’t know if this is enough stuff that anyone would be interested in, but I don’t want it or need it so I’d be glad to send it to someone who does. It will be free, and I will cover shipping to anywhere.

First of all, each person participating, is, by entering, acknowledging that the contest, sweepstakes, or giveaway isn’t associated with Tumblr (including, without limitation, that it isn’t administered, sponsored, or endorsed by Tumblr), and that the information you provide me with (in order for me to send these items to you) is released to me and not to Tumblr. Tumblr is not responsible. Don’t blame Tumblr if something goes wrong. Blame me.

Also, as per Tumblr rules, you gotta be over eighteen. Sorry, young’uns.

The stuff:

1 - Set of four, soft graphite Derwent drawing pencils, HB, 2B, 4B, 8B (one each).

Rules:

There will be 2 giveaways. Most of the items are different in each set.

You can enter both, but you cannot win both.

To enter you can like or reblog this post. If you don’t want to do either, you can message me. I’ll be logging the names and the winner will be chosen randomly

You do not have to follow me.

You do not have to pay shipping - these are small items that I don’t need, it is my pleasure to give them to one of you.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

The winner will be chosen on June 1st, at midnight Eastern US time. I’ll notify whoever it is asap and ship it out soon after.

I know some of my followers might be interested in this! :D

"We grew up with the Internet and on the Internet. This is what makes us different; this is what makes the crucial, although surprising from your point of view, difference: we do not ‘surf’ and the internet to us is not a ‘place’ or ‘virtual space’. The Internet to us is not something external to reality but a part of it: an invisible yet constantly present layer intertwined with the physical environment. We do not use the Internet, we live on the Internet and along it. If we were to tell our bildnungsroman to you, the analog, we could say there was a natural Internet aspect to every single experience that has shaped us. We made friends and enemies online, we prepared cribs for tests online, we planned parties and studying sessions online, we fell in love and broke up online. The Web to us is not a technology which we had to learn and which we managed to get a grip of. The Web is a process, happening continuously and continuously transforming before our eyes; with us and through us. Technologies appear and then dissolve in the peripheries, websites are built, they bloom and then pass away, but the Web continues, because we are the Web; we, communicating with one another in a way that comes naturally to us, more intense and more efficient than ever before in the history of mankind."
