Le succès commence toujours petitement

Le succès commence toujours petitement

« Les grandes réalisations, au début et pour un certain temps, n’étaient rien d\'autre qu\'un rêve ». Napoleon Hill.

Si vous voulez quelque chose, alors attrapez-le!

Si vous voulez quelque chose, alors attrapez-le!

« Si vous avez un rêve, vous devez le protéger. Les gens qui n\'arrivent à rien vous diront que votre rêve ne se réalisera pas. Si vous voulez quelque chose, allez le chercher. Point. »

Continuez à travailler normalement.

Continuez à travailler normalement.

La seule raison pour laquelle j\'ai eu du succès est que j\'ai continué à travailler alors que les autres restaient au lit

Vous deviendrez celui que vous pensez.

Vous deviendrez celui que vous pensez.

La vision que vous glorifiez dans vos pensées, l\'idéal que vous chérissez dans votre cœur, c\'est là-dessus que vous bâtirez votre vie et c\'est ce que vous deviendrez

La vie est une aventure.

La vie est une aventure.

La sécurité est une superstition. Elle n\'existe pas dans la nature et nos enfants ne l\'apprennent pas. Eviter le danger n\'est pas à long terme plus sûr qu\'y être exposé. La vie est une aventure que l\'on ose ou rien du tout

If, with the literate, I am
Impelled to try an epigram,
I never seek to take the credit;
We all assume that Oscar said it.

27 People Share The One Cool Internet Or Computer Trick They Know

shutterstock_144275002
 

1. A shortcut to any website.

Whatever you type into the URL bar can be surrounded by www. & .com by pressing control + enter.

2. An easy way to browse photos on a subreddit hands-free.

When viewing picture based subreddits, add a “p” into the url like so: redditp.com/r/subreddit to get a picture slideshow of the posts on that subreddit. This is particularly useful when you want to browse a picture based subreddit ahemhands-free.

3. A shortcut to downloading music.

Type -inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(wma|mp3) “weezer” into a google search bar.

And for other searches, replace “weezer” with whatever you’re looking for. It finds music downloads on public ftp and http sites.

4. How to do a reverse image search.

Hold S and right click an image to do reverse image search in Chrome.

5. How to skip the boring intros of most Youtube videos.

The Wadsworth constant, which was proposed by /u/wadsworth, states that the first 30% of any YouTube instructional video is skippable. YouTube added it as a feature. Tutorial video? Add ?wadsworth=1 to the end of the URL and skip the awkward introduction by the host about their hobbies, genetic history, what they had for breakfast, and the explanation you could have gathered from the video’s title.

6. How to restore a closed browser.

ctrl + shift + T

Opens up the last tab you closed.

7. How to make your cursor move by words.

Most of the good ones are gone, but, holding control makes your cursor move by full words, instead of by characters.

So CTRL + backspace will delete the entire previous word. CTRL + arrow keys will jump to the start of the previous word.

8. A shortcut to highlighting a URL.

CTRL + L highlights the url/address bar in Chrome.

9. How to access private Youtube videos and subscription-only sites.

If a YouTube video is marked as private I’m pretty sure you can gain access simply by deleting the “watch?” In the URL.

I didn’t include this before because I never personally tried it, but I’ve heard that if you remove the “?” In a New York Times online URL you can avoid having to buy a subscription or whatever they want you to pay for.

10. The new “cntrl+Alt+delete.”

Don’t hit control+alt+delete, hit control+shift+escape to go directly to the task manager.

11. How to stop a distracting GIF.

One weird trick is pressing ESC to halt animated GIFs that are distracting. Animators hate me.

12. How to switch between open windows.

So many don’t know about alt-tab, which lets you switch between open applications quickly. It changed my life.

13. A shortcut to reenabling browser right-click.

Putting the following into a favorite/shortcut on the toolbar re-enables browser right click. Good for sites that disable it to stop you stealing pictures, or if their own right click context menu is buggy.

javascript:void(document.oncontextmenu=null)

14. How to open up an incognito window (and what it’s good for).

I’m positive everyone knows this, but ctrl + shift + n opens up an incognito mode tab on chrome. You can browse freely being sure that nothing of what you do is saved in browsing or downloads history. No cookies either.

15. A simple way to clear your cache.

CTRL + SHIFT + R = Clear cache and then refresh page.

16. How to access a blocked subreddit.

If certain subreddits are blocked at your school or work you can type the subreddit name with a + at the end of it.

ex. /r/AskReddit+

17. Apparently, plug-ins are what’s up.

Plug-ins make your internet experience 100x better:

  • YouTube Center: allows you to customize YouTube to your liking, auto HD, remove annotations, and other annoying things that normal people have to adjust every time they watch a video.
  • Imagus: allows you to view images by just hovering over the link. Works great for reddit.
  • AdBlock: Everyone should know about this already. Blocks ads. Allows you to whitelist sites that have tasteful, non-intrusive ads (like reddit).

18. An alternative way to pause a Youtube video.

Tired of hitting spacebar to pause a YouTube video and having it scroll down a page instead? Hit “k” instead.

19. How to access paywall sites.

For websites like washingtonpost.com that allow you a certain number of free stories per month before you hit a paywall, just delete the cookies from the site and it will reset your count. Alternatively, you can browse it in incognito mode (yes it’s useful for more than porn).

20. A fast and easy way to track your UPS package.

If you Google a UPS tracking number, it will link you right to the tracking page for your package.

21. How to excise words from a Google search.

When searching things in Google, you can type a minus sign and then the word you don’t want (-stuff) to remove that word from the search.

22. How to make Google do a barrel roll.

Googling “do a barrel roll” results in a barrel roll on Google.

23. How to access video websites that are restricted in your country.

Youtube video or website not available in your country? Try https://hola.org/ lets you proxy from a different country really easily.

24. A hidden game in Google images.

A lot of people probably already know this, but…
Go to Google. Type in Atari Breakout. Go to Images.

Enjoy.

25. How to make Google look off-balance.

Try searching “tilt” in the address bar in chrome…

Google engineers must have fun. :)

26. A website that usually has discounts on everything.

Always check retailmenot.com for coupons before buying anything online.

27. How to find an updated version of a now-dead website page.

Run into an old, dead link? Copy the url to archive.org… they often have a preserved copy. TC mark

Box Of Lightning

Diorama for Box of Lightning.. Backlit etching in plexiglass painted black.

 How to Breathe Underwater

Diorama made out of walnuts, poured and cast candle wax, wire, glitter, peanut shells, flock, plaster, wire, dyed starfish, compressed moss, jellybeans(anemones), sponges, wax coated seashells, toothpaste,
clay, figs, feathers, Q-tips, nonpareils.

 A New Life

Diorama made using painted parchment paper, thread, hand dyed ostrich feathers, carved chocolate, wire, raffia, masking tape, coffee, synthetic potting moss and cotton.

 Breaking Point

 Diorama made out of tile grout, cotton, phosphorous ink. This model volcano was illuminated from within and underneath by six 60 watt light bulbs. 

 DIY Paradise

Making clouds out of drug store cotton balls. Diorama madre from cotton, salt, cooked sugar, tin foil, feathers & canvas.

 

 After The Storm

This model is simply made out of faux fur(fields), cotton (clouds) and sifted tile grout(mountains). The perspective is forced as in all of my images, and the lighting effect was created by simply shifting the white balance.

 Everything We Ever Were

It took two months to store up enough fireplace ash to create this lunar landscape. The darker rocks are made of mixed tile grout, flag crumpled paper & wire. The Earth is a video still projected onto the wall.

 Salt Water Falls

Diorama made out of glass, plexiglass, tile grout, moss, twigs, salt, painted canvas & dry ice. The waterfall was created from a time exposure of falling table salt.

 Sugarland

Made out of 20 pounds of sugar, jello and corn syrup. The crystals were grown in my studio over the course of two months.

 Wildfire

Diorama made from wood, moss, yellow glitter, clear garbage bags, cooked sugar, scotch-brite pot scrubbers, bottle brushes, clipping from a bush in bloom (white flowers) clear thread, sand, tile grout (coloring), wire, paper and alternating yellow, red and orange party bulbs. 

 Icebreaker

25 pounds of sugar cooked at varying temperatures (hard crack & pulled sugar recipes) It’s basically made out of candy. salt, egg whites, corn syrup, cream of tartar, powdered sugar, blue food coloring, india ink & flour. Three days of cooking, and two weeks of building.

 Tornado

Diorama made of steel wool, cotton, ground parsley and moss

 Waterglass Mountains

This one is a mixture of many different materials, tile grout, moss, bottle brushes (pine trees) Actual clippings from ground cover and was built on top of  standard outdoor patio table (water glass).  The sky is canvas painted blue. Coloring was again achieved by shifting white balance.

 Aurora Borealis

This one was made by photographing a beam of colored light against a black curtain to achieve the edge effect. The trees were composited from life ( so far the only real life element in any of these images) The stars are simply strobe light through holes in cork board.

 Paprika Mars

Paprika Mars. Made out of 12 pounds paprika, cinnamon, nutmeg, chili powder and charcoal

Matthew Albanese’s fascination with film, special effects and movie magic—and the mechanics behind these illusions—began early.  Born in northern New Jersey in 1983, Albanese spent a peripatetic childhood moving between New Jersey and upstate New York. An only child, Albanese enjoyed imaginative, solitary play. He loved miniatures and created scenarios intricately set with household objects and his extensive collection of action figures. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography at the State University of New York, Purchase, Albanese worked as a fashion photographer, training his lens on bags, designer shoes and accessories—this small-object specialization is known in the retail trade as “table top photography.” Albanese’s creative eye soon turned to tabletop sets of a more wildly eclectic nature. In 2008, a spilled canister of paprika inspired him to create his first mini Mars landscape. More minute dioramas—made of spices, food and found objects—followed. In 2011, Albanese was invited to show at the Museum of Art and Design of New York. His work has also been exhibited at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, Winkleman Gallery, and Muba, Tourcoing France. Matthew is represented  at Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York

Student Re-Imagines Hungarian Currency with Beautiful, Nature-Inspired Designs

bernat14
 
Student artist Barbara Bernat creatively re-imagines Hungarian paper money with designs that look like pages from a naturalist’s sketchbook.  The artist created these beautiful banknotes for a fictional currency, the Hungarian Euro, as her thesis project. She etched the drawings on copper plates, which allowed her to produce prints recreating the quality and detail characteristic of secure paper currency.

“This subtle and refined form of reproduction enabled me to imitate the original technique used during the production of banknotes, intaglio printing,” the artist says on her website. “My goal was to create a complete series with clear design that transcends the tradition of banknote making.”

Photographer’s Girlfriend Leads Him Around the World

1082116332
 
Photographer Murad Osmann creatively documents his travels around the world with his girlfriend leading the way in his ongoing series known as Follow Me To. Chronicling his adventures on Instagram, the Russian photographer composes each shot in a similar fashion. We see each landscape from the photographer’s point of view with his extended hand holding onto his girlfriend’s in front of him.
With her back turned, never revealing her face to the camera, Osmann’s girlfriend guides us all on a journey across the globe to some of the most beautiful, exotic, and radiant environments. There are also comforting and familiar settings mixed in for good measure. Whether the couple is spending a romantic night in Moscow, having an exotic adventure in Asia, or simply going bowling, Osmann keeps a visual record of their escapades as he trails behind his beloved.
