Two Important Bio Papers on the idea of "Zinc World"

Musea E-mail Club #483 Zinc World



Readers,



This week's e-mail club message is a special one for me. I

heard from Dr. Mulkidjanian, concerning two new science papers he has

recently published. They talk about his ideas for a ZINC WORLD, and

how zinc may have played an important role in the start of life.

And not only does it support some of the ideas I had,

but he even mentioned me in the acknowledgments​.​

So it is a real honor to pass on the… Continue

Maximizing the use of computer in term paper writing

Many of the older generation of students are bemoaning the fact that students nowadays have it easy. Now if they have term paper work they wouldn't have to slog through manual typewriters (or handwritten even) but can just boot up their computers and do their work. Researching for students nowadays also means browsing through the internet and searching for websites instead of going through tons of books at the library.



Of course, having computers is not useful if the users would not… Continue

So What's With the Vampires?

Based From the Movie Twilight



Just recently, the youth became so into the Twilight phenomenon. No doubt, this series have really captured the interest of the young generations. A lot of teenagers where so into it that they even got the thought of finding their own Edward Cullen or Bella Swan.



But what's with the series and the vampire thing that made these youngsters get hooked into it? Perhaps a research paper about this would become a hit!

ZINE PAR-TAY!

Yeee-haw! So finally "released" the SUMMER zine last night! Midnight Swim - 9 pm, Oakesdale Pool!



It basically consisted of remembering to put the stack of neon-covered zines of the table that the sound system was on. Man, I had to take a quick break from DJ-ing to snatch em' out of the Blazer.



But it seemed to go over pretty well. Most of the kids that attended the hang-session at the pool were from different schools, so they didn't really know what "the zine" was. (But… Continue

THE SPOTTED COW

No guessing what the title is referring to. The Spotted Cow probably fits into the top ten of country pub names that are dotted around the UK and Channel Islands. However, there is one Spotted Cow which has a relevance and energy all of its own. In years to come, I wonder how much of this short story holds an irony which proves very special.



"The Meadow" novel features locations all around the world, and different times in history. Its characters are more than colourful… Continue

How do I make a quarter sized zine?

Indigo has always been half sized, which is relatively easy to set up in MS Word and then cut & paste. Issue #17 done and ready to print, but it's a double issue, and I want to make the second part a quarter sized zine. Can anyone offer any advice/tips/techniques? Thanks!

Mental Health Zines

I'm a member of this group for a good reason. All people, mental illness or no, deal with feelings of alienation, loneliness, heartbreak, chaos, anxiety, and paranoia to a certain degree. I know--I'm definitely not mincing words here. Nonetheless when I'm lonely or down, it has often been mental health-related art that has transcended me from my problems. I honestly feel that when people laugh at others with mental illness, they don't even know what they're laughing about. Their laughter is… Continue

Girl Photographer Four



I've completed a 24 hour zine challenge zine - unintentionally! I should have got it done weeks ago but it ended up being a last minute crazy dash before the Ffotogallery Book Arts Fayre on Saturday. This issue is full colour, quarter sized and 24 pages long - a mite smaller than usual since I made it in such limited time.



Girl Photographer 4 features a story about being an extremely un-corporate person attempting the early morning London… Continue

Everybody Moon Jump #4

1/4 perzine, 80 pages

$3 or trade for some of your zines. This be a text heavy zine.

Sew I taught myself how to sew and it's sew easy and that's how I bound my zine. I won't needle you with anymore sewing puns, but let me know how you felt...thimble.

EMJ #4 is about meeting a woman who tells me of this story of when she went to Australia, buying balloons, and getting my bike stolen.

LAFFS! GAGZ! CATHARTIC LOLZ!

Media Overload and Zines

Billy the Bunny (loop distro), Kate (Sandler) and I have been having various discusses among ourselves over the past few weeks on the nature of zines, what’s changed over the past years, and the direction of where they might be going in the future. We decided to take some of the finer points from our conversations and write them down to hopefully start an interesting discussion. I'd love to get some other people's thoughts. Check out what Billy has to say here:… Continue

Musea Art Contest 8/18/09 Zinesters Look if you Dare to be Quizzed!

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,

our last contest question of:



When I write my piano pieces – I call them bagatelles -

I most often write them in the ABA form. That means that I start

with a melody passage or theme. Then I switch to

a second melody passage or variation of that theme. And finally I repeat the first passage to end it. That’s the ABA form.

(Personal note: In my case I like to do a major key part, then minor key, then back to the major key… Continue

Musea E-mail Club #481 Bio #2 What That Could Mean

Start with the basic concept of catabolic and anabolic biochemistry. I suggest that that biochemistry evolved to many novel forms and developments.



I suggested a list in the first part of this two parter of what that could mean if proven true.



Then at the end I suggest reasons why the catabolic and anabolic divisions have stayed separate for all these billions of years.

At last Crone!

Yes, at last I have finished Crone! It's 20 pages A5 and is a more, I would say, literary zine than Estrones. It has a piece about getting older, a recipie, a story written by me, another short article, an article about the four daughters of the late Tsar from the "Girls' Realm" magazine of 1901 and an article about Lady Charlotte Guest (one of my heroes).



My husband took it with him to London today and he'll be photocopying it at work. (My worries that he wouldn't be… Continue
