Hispanic or Latino?

I cringe everytime someone uses the word Latino when generically speaking of Spanish-speaking people. I prefer to be called Spanish or Hispanic. Some people may disagree with me but I think that calling me a Hispanic describes my true ethnical and cultural origin. Although many people will bring the fact that the colonization of America by the Spanish conquerors was bloody and opressive, we still owe to Spain the origin of our countries. From Mexico to Patagonia and the Large Antilles, the Spanish conquistadores left their footprint in the form of language, architecture, religion, cooking, stories, art, crafts and culture. In contrast, a Latino is anyone who descends from people that speak a Romance language like: French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Romanian. By that definition, when we speak of Latin America we include countries like Brasil, Haiti, French Guyana and, Surinam. The same definition could apply to Italian-Americans, French-Americans, French-Canadians, and Cajun people.

3d Printer RESIN

Hi, i'm planning on buying a SLA printer, but i want to be sure that i can get a good amount of resin at a fair price, i found some places but since i'm from Bolivia-Latin America, the shipping and buying from Us Europe or Asia it becomes quite expensive, sometimes like +65% to 80% of the product itself. If someone knows a DIY resin, or some good places that doesn't cost as much per L or Galon plz let me know and share it with everyone else. Anyway, thx a lot for reading and take your time, i hope i can get an answer.

Living Snow Globes

INSTRUCTABLES: www.projectfidgetyfingers.blogspot.com We have been collecting glass jars and bottles for the arrival of our glass cutter. And while we are at the subject of plants, we have decided to make some mini terrariums. We talked about friends without green thumbs and the sweet token of giving something green. It is going to be a disaster if the gift dies before the next time you visit them. So, we thought of fool-proofing it by making terrariums. Terra is a word meaning Earth in Latin. It is an area, usually enclosed, for keeping and raising animals or plants for observation or research. Often, a portion of the ecosystem for a particular species is simulated on a smaller scale, with controls for environment conditions. The main requirement is that it be watertight to keep the moisture in. So, non-green thumbs ahoy! This means light watering every month or longer. The plants are usually hardy and do not grow quickly if you keep the water circulating. This is a fabulous mini sustainable environment to create, a sort of 'living snow globe'. A magical gift for kids and the office desk.

Flow Circus brings DIY skill toys to the world with Fundama

Flow Circus is a group of jugglers and skill toy artists dedicated to promoting creativity and play among kids and adults. Based on the Kendama and other ball, stick, and cup games from cultures around the world, they have created what they call "Fundama". From the site: Fundama: 1. Easy-to-make toy using basic elements such as string, tape, cups, and sticks that provide hours of challenging play; 2. From the Latin fundus: the bottom or basis for engaging programs for children, tweens, & teens Brief History: ...We know that budgets are tight and programmers are always looking for ideas that can be done on a shoe-string budget. We love encouraging skill-based play so we sat down with paper cups, string, tape, sticks and Fundama was born! There are videos and instructions all over the site telling how to create your own Fundama using sticks, strings, cups, and tape.  Great DIY and wonderful for parents and kids to do together at home, church, library, and school.

Facebook tweaks

I've just pushed out a small set of changes, mostly around the Facebook integration.  The Facebook login button isn't so obvious, and we've now got some admin features to handle a case that turns out to happen more than we expected.  Here's what it is: Some people have both an Instructables account and a Facebook account.  Some of these use different email addresses for each.  When a person clicks the Login with Facebook button and approves Instructables with their Facebook account, one of the pieces of information we get is their email address, and we check it against our existing email addresses so as to link the correct account if we find a match.  Often there is no match, and in the vast majority of these cases the person doesn't already have an Instructables account.  So we make them one, and link it to their Facebook account. However sometimes they do have an Instructables account already, and now all of a sudden they have two!  This is confusing and wrong, and we'd been dealing with it in a rather arduous manner involving direct database changes, which is always something to avoid.  Now we've got a system for admins to handle this case with just a few clicks. Other than that, there are some bugfixes, for example around character display -- a few of our new Facebook visitors don't use the Latin alphabet!  So we handle that a little better now.  We have some more sensible default actions for new registrations, and a couple things to help our admins manage contests more easily, which they've been asking for for some time.

Facebook login is here!

I've just pushed out a rather large set of changes.  I'd like to present to you, the ability to log in using your Facebook account.  If you already have an existing Instructables account, you may link up your Facebook account to it on your You screen.  Watch upcoming releases for the ability to post automatically to your Wall, use your Facebook pictures, and more.  We will be rolling them out one by one as we get them complete and tested.  It's pretty hard to test this integration before it's live, so it's quite likely we'll find issues -- please bear with us (For example, we don't handle non-Latin alphabets in user names right quite yet).  Tell us when something goes wrong by filing a bug in the Bugs Forum. Another significant change is to the layout of Instructables.  We've made it easier to read with a slightly bigger font size, and put the pictures above the text which many users have been asking us to do for some time.  The editor has also had some improvements - bigger size text area and a cleaner look too. And of course we've fixed a bunch of bugs.  Notably, the problem some users were having with featuring, and the image notes not displaying right.  At least, they looked fixed when we tried them - if you are still seeing these or other issues, and you've cleared your browser cache to get rid of old javascript or CSS, let us know!

Add it to my list below and I'll pick out a few ;)If the house is quiet enough (family of 6 et. al.) - I can probably take video of the process (from how to make a bobbin --> set the top thread --> fabric stabilizers --> needle selection etc.) and post it. I know it is a bit specialized to the machine -- but from what I found at the quilt shop... There's a lot of people that own the machine and don't know how to use it...Running List#Stercus fit (Translated from Latin: Shit Happens) <-- my girlfriend wants this :D#Jag Lik Bananerna (From Swedish: I like Bananas)#I Do My Own instructables#This T-Shirt Is Now VoidIf I like your post -- I'll make a second T-shirt for you. So post your T size with your submission. You can eMail me if you don't want to post your T size ;) Be aware - I'm learning through use. So there might be minor defects.

The VQS range

Hi! These are my guns that are coming out in September when i can get my camera sorted. I've actually finished the 1st one, the SS-90 and this can be found here: instructables.com/id/90_SS_Desechos_P_90. Now these will be the VQS range after the initials of the latin for 'swift and silent'; 'volitas quod silensis'. You know in car firms like Mercedes and Audi you have upgrade lines? AMG and the 'S' line respectively. Well , this is one for knex guns. So for example, the P-90 style gun will be the (VQ)90-SS . V, Q, 90 (as in P-90) ,S ,S(sears sytsem). They all have individual names as well. Here is the guns they are based on - 1. Will be the SS-LE/'Bastille'. This is an old MK. 2 Sten. It has a firing pin and a side loading mag, with a working silencer (hopefully). 2,3 and 4. This is finished ! The 90-SS/'Desechos' - Spanish for refusal. This next gun is a cross between these 2. It has a sears system and 6/10 round hopper - also TOTAL customisability. 5. Hopefully the next to be built. Will be the M-1G/'Adamantine'. An M1 Garand. 6+7. Will be the CD-94/'Flint'. A cross between these 2, although they are essentially the same. The first is a Mauser C96 'Broomhandle', the 2nd a DL44 blaster used by Hans Solo. 8+9. Will be the HM-5S/Cetaebro - Greek for dangerous shadow. These are the H&K MP5SD and the MP5 Navy repectively. Hopefully it will be a choice of 2 - real semi auto, or firing pin for proper power. A detachable silencer too. Note: 10. I could be trying to make a Henry Repeater Action .22 rifle too.

Crows and Ravens in Mythology.

Crows n RavensFor centuries the corvids, ravens and crows in particular (corvus corax is the Latin name for the common raven and corvus corone for the carrion and hooded crows), have had a special place in the mythology of various cultures. In modern times this fascination has barely diminished. From Edgar Allen Poe's literary classic to the film of James O'Barr's cult graphic novel "The Crow", these birds still exert a powerful hold over the psyche of a significant fraction of the population. The Goths who paint their faces with white make-up and the weekend warriors who expect Raven to take them to the Otherworld to meet the dead do not see the same animal as the farmers who set up decoys in order to shoot large numbers of them every year in late spring. This is, however, typical of a creature that presents a paradox wherever one looks.Corvids are sociable birds. They tend to form social groups, and this can be seen particularly in the case of rooks, which stay in their flocks all year round. Ravens, the largest of the family, reaching as much as 3 feet from beak to tail, form groups as juveniles, pairing off into lifelong monogamous and extremely territorial relationships at around the age of three. The courtship can involve such fun and games as synchronised snow sliding, and, of course, the synchronised flight test. The corvids can be found all over the world, and are the largest of the passeriformae, or songbirds. The common raven is widely distributed throughout the Northern hemisphere, and the adaptability and intelligence of this family have made it extremely successful.As far as the mythology goes, the first confusion arises over the distinction between Crow and Raven, at least on the European side of the Atlantic. The two appear, in many instances, to be interchangeable, and the appearance of one or the other in a story depends as much on which author is transcribing it as it does on story itself. Whereas John Matthews 1 gives Bran the raven almost exclusively, Miranda Jane Green 2 ascribes to the God's companion animal either the crow or the raven, much as both authors do for the Morrigan. The confusion on the American side of the Atlantic is not so profound. There is a distinct geographical trend in the likelihood of Raven appearing in a story, and so we will start our examination there.

From My Brother: Halloween Advice

It's getting close to Halloween, so very strange things are about to happen, therefore please use these helpful hints this and every year. 1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER check to see if it's really dead. 2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke. 3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out. 4. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run. However, it will probably take several rounds to kill them, so be prepared. This also applies to kids who speak with somebody else's voice. 5. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go alone. 6. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell. 7. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This would apply to any other house of the dead as well. 8. If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and find out that it's just the cat, GET OUT! 9. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short circuits; just get out. 10. Do not take ANYTHING from the dead. 11. If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it. Don't stop and look around. 12. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you're doing. 13. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice, more if you are female. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you. 14. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, kill them immediately. 15. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, anywhere in Texas where chainsaws are sold, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine. 16. If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help. If you think that it is strange you ran out of gas because you thought you had most of a tank, shoot yourself instead. You are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten. 17. Beware of strangers bearing tools. For example: chainsaws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawn mowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any devices made from deceased companions. 18. If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is the time to move in with the in-laws. This also applies to houses that had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices. 19. Dress appropriately. When investigating a noise downstairs in an old house, women should not wear a flimsy negligee. And carry a flashlight, not a candle. 20. Do not mention the names of demons around open flames, as these can flare suddenly. Be especially careful of fireplaces in this regard. 21. Do not go looking for witches in the Maryland countryside. 22. Machine-guns can't kill EVERYTHING. 23. If you happen to come upon a giant web or nest, DO NOT look for what made it. 24. If you find that your puppet is not how you left it the night before, find the axe. If you own a fireplace, that sometimes works better. 25. Don't wear extremely loose clothing, as it will catch on something as you are running away. 26. Do not chase after the big monster trying to camcord it, you WILL die. 27. Do not pet a foaming dog. 28. BELIEVE ALL URBAN LEGENDS. 29. If you have to pair up, do not go with the snobby rich guy, he will be one of the first to die. 30. If you find a secret doorway, don't go exploring it, chances are something happened in there. 31. Not all clowns are happy. 32. If the housekeeper never smiles and/or seems to hate you, do them and yourself a favor and leave. 33. Just because you come in peace doesn't mean they do. 34. Learn to scream AND run, it will save your life. 35. Never give hitch-hikers a ride. 36. If the crazy old man says leave, take his advice; what do you think made him crazy? 37. Unless your neighbor is a grave keeper or a gardener, carrying a shovel is not a good sign. HAVE A HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!
