Tumblr, Alien, and Blog: enrique262: Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Disaster, liquitadors, soviet personnel in charge of the clean-up operation, “the liquidation”, of the disaster, are sent onto the rooftop of the stricken reactor 4 building to clean it up of highly radioactive debris, many coming from the inside of the destroyed reactor itself, as to ensure minimal working conditions could be established, enabling workers to begin construction of the containment building around the stricken reactor, the Sarcophagus.  These men, sent after remote-controlled robots originally tasked with this mission constantly broke down due to damage from the heavy radiation, were nicknamed bio-robots, and worked in such heavily radioactive environment, they couldn’t afford more than a minute of working time each on the rooftop, as more than that would ensure absorption of a fatal dose of radiation. Notice the white flashes at the bottom of the pictures, remnants of the radiation itself present in such alien, hostile environment, which was so strong it reflected itself onto the film inside the cameras, as stated by the journalist behind these pictures, Igor Kostin. The world’s most dangerous job, in the world’s most radioactive place, during the world’s worst nuclear disaster, these men, perhaps unknowingly in many cases, rose to the challenge and ensured the world would never known the horrors they suffered during that fateful year of 1986 in the Ukraine.

Advice, Anaconda, and Asian: STEAMPUNK &other genres thewritingcaf <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://nimblesnotebook.tumblr.com/post/61794170451">nimblesnotebook</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><em>Guide to Writing Steampunk</em></p> <p><strong>BASICS</strong></p> <blockquote> <p><strong>Punk Genres:</strong><span> </span><em>most common genres are in italics</em></p> </blockquote> <div> <ul><li> <em><strong>Atomicpunk</strong></em><span>: Optimistic retro science fiction based on the Space Age. Think <em>The Jetsons</em>.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Biopunk</strong></em><span>: </span><span>This genre is about altering genetics and DNA. These stories often take place in the near-future in which humans have been altered or in which human experimentation is common.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Candlepunk</strong><span>: Similar to clockpunk, but darker and with less technology.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Clockpunk</strong><span>: </span><span>Think Da Vinci’s inventions, but more advanced while. This genre follows the aesthetics and technology of Western civilization during the mid to late middle ages, though sometimes it’s set in the Victorian era.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Cyberpunk</strong></em><span>: Has advanced technology and often focuses on artificial intelligence and the cyber world. The setting is often near-future rather than far-future. Blade Runner is an example.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Dieselpunk</strong><span>: Based on aesthetics and technology between World War I and World War II, sometimes up until the Cold War.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Decopunk</strong><span>: Ranges from the aesthetics of the 1920’s to the 1950’s. Decopunk aesthetic is heavily based on modernism. Less gritty than dieselpunk.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Elfpunk</strong><span>: Basically urban fantasy, but with common high or epic fantasy creatures put in an urban setting rather than vampires and werewolves.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Nanopunk</strong><span>: Similar to biopunk, but biotechnology is less available and nanotechnology is common.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Sandalpunk</strong><span>: Set in ancient worlds, such as Rome, but with advanced technology.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Splatterpunk</strong><span>: Extremely graphic and contains a lot of gore.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Steampunk</strong></em><span>: This genre gets its name from the heavy steam-powered technology involved. Aesthetics are based on the Victorian and industrial eras of the Western world, though other cultural elements may be used.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Western Steampunk</strong><span>: Similar to steampunk, but with Western (as in Wild West) aesthetics and settings.</span> </li> </ul><span>So why are there so many sub genres? For starters, they help agents and publishers get an idea of what they’re in for if you’re going through the traditional publishing route. While bookstores usually just put these genres within science fiction or fantasy, you can still market your book through sub genres to reach a specific group of people who are looking for these genres.</span><br/><span> </span><br/><span>However, there are a lot of sub genres, most of which many have not heard of. If you’ve written one of these genres and intend to publish it, the best would be to put it under another name (with the exception of steampunk, cyberpunk, and biopunk). For example, if you have written a candlepunk story, you can propose it as fantasy, alternate historical fiction, or any other genre it may fit in. While atomicpunk is quite common, it’s not well known by that name. If you have written an atompunk story, the best way to market it would be to call it retro science fiction.</span><br/><span> </span><br/><span>But what’s the difference between punk genres and historical fiction? The technology is a big difference. It’s usually more advanced for the time it’s modeled after.</span> </div> <div><span> </span></div> <div><strong><span>TECHNOLOGY</span></strong></div> <blockquote> <div><span>The technology is one of the defining aspects of steampunk. It’s the basis for the world you’re writing in. For the typical steampunk story, technology will be (of course) steam powered.</span></div> <div><span> </span></div> </blockquote> <div> <ul><li><a href="http://ageofsteam.wordpress.com/2010/11/22/a-guide-to-steampunk-gadgets-and-technology/">A Guide to Steampunk Gadgets and Technology</a></li> <li><a href="http://steampunk.wikia.com/wiki/Airship">Airship</a></li> <li><a href="http://pinterest.com/steamcircus/steampunk-airships-submarines/">Steampunk Airships Inspiration</a></li> <li><a href="http://science.howstuffworks.com/transport/flight/classic/steampunk-blimp-pictures.htm#page=0">Steampunk Blimps</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-technology/channel-steampunk/">Technology Steampunk Instructables</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.pinterest.com/jdh2812/steampunk-technology/">Steampunk Technology Inspiration</a></li> <li><a href="http://people.howstuffworks.com/steampunk.htm">How Steampunk Works</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.pinterest.com/jouhaan/steampunk-gadgets/">Steampunk Gadgets</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.trendhunter.com/slideshow/steampunk-gadgets">100 Functional Steampunk Gadgets</a></li> </ul></div> <div><strong><span>CHARACTERS &amp; FASHION</span></strong></div> <blockquote> <div>Another defining feature of steampunk is the aesthetics and the characters.

Jail, Meek Mill, and Memes: Meek Mill's Legal Team Says Judge Gave Him a Heavy Sentence Because He Refused To Give Her a Shout Out in A Boyz ll Men Remake @balleralert Meek Mill’s Legal Team Says Judge Gave Him a Heavy Sentence Because He Refused To Give Her a Shout Out in A Boyz II Men Remake – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier this week, MeekMill was sentenced to 2 to 4 years behind bars for violating probation, again. Despite the judge’s 10-year history with the rapper and several previous easy breaks, many believe the sentence was harsh and heavy-handed. In fact, the rapper’s legal team says the judge has a vendetta against him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to TMZ, Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, says the judge passed down the heavy sentence even after prosecutors recommended no jail time because of her own personal issues with the rapper. Tacopina says the two are from the same part of Philly and know some of the same people, the publication reports. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tacopina cited an incident from last year, when the judge asked the rapper to do a remake of Boyz II Men’s, “On Bended Knee,” and give her a shout-out. According to the attorney, Meek thought the judge was joking, but she said “I’m not kidding,” and when he refused, she said, “Okay, suit yourself.” Since then, Tacopina believes she has had it out for him, which explains the heavy sentence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, Meek’s legal team says they plan to appeal the sentence.

Reports say that over 41 million people have been affected by the direct impact of the rain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In already deeply impoverished rural areas, homes have been completely wiped away by landslides and the rising waters. People were forced to use elephants to rescue trapped tourists and residents. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The most recent city hit is Mumbai, the financial center of India, parts of which are under several feet of water. On Thursday, a building collapsed due to the heavy rain, leaving 21 people dead and more than a dozen others trapped under the building. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Police, rescue workers, and residents were able to pull 13 people out of the rubble but are still searching for others who are buried underneath.

Clothes, Facebook, and Gym: AGE: 21 DORIAN YATES HOW DO BUILD A WIDE BACK? IG: @LEGIONS PRODUCTION AGE: 30 🔥😳HOW DO I BUILD A WIDE BACK? Founder 👉: @king_khieu. Before we begin this, I want to be clear on several things. For building a well developed back, the heavy core movements such as deadlifts, barbell rows and chin-pull ups are the fundamentals. The compound movements are crucial for building a strong back and core foundation. Use cable exercises and machines to chisel and define your back afterward. But never neglect the core movements. Building width requires consistency and hard work. Again, focus on core movements first and define after. Here are some variation, movements and tips which are great if you want to build a wider back. 1 - Weighted pull ups and chin ups if you can. 2 - Straight arm pushdowns. 3 - Wide grip exercises such as pull ups and pulldowns. 4 - Pre-exhaust training for the lats. 5 - Work your back twice a week. 6 - Focus on the squeeze and build-mind muscle connection. 7 - Deadlifts are key for width and thickness. Thoughts? 🤔Opinions? What do you guys think? COMMENT BELOW! Athlete: @thedorianyates. TAG SOMEONE who needs to lift! _________________ Looking for unique gym clothes?
