  1. Not I imagine then for art school - entrance to them was from demonstrating some form of eye hand drawing ability - and this was honed by life drawing , first from plaster casts and then life drawing in the classical tradition. There was in acedemia / pre-camera a heirarchy for artists where the best emarked on careers as Figural / portraitists, then lower down Landscapes, then the lowly Still Life artists. Things now are a bit more flexible - Hitlers work reminds me of when I first attended life drawing at an One year Arts Foundation Course (pre Uni) following A' Levels and I was seated next to an aspiring industrial designer - and he produced a wonderfuly drawn picture of the room inc plumbing/ radiators etc all in perfect perspective but where the nude model was meant to be was just a blank untouched silhouetted outline. Here's what the precociously talented Picasso (b. 1881) and Dal (b. 1904) i were doing in their early teens. https://mymodernmet.com/picasso-early-work/ https://www.wikiart.org/en/salvador-dali/all-works#!#filterName:Period_early-years-1917-1927,resultType:masonry

  3. BJ - Die-hard eurosceptic or opportunist? "Writing for The Daily Telegraph, he (BJ) says that if Britain left the EU, “we would have to recognise that most of our problems are not caused” by Brussels.
  4. That was 2003 after "DPRK's revelation of its nuclear development program in September 2002" after North Korea committed not to develop nuclear weapons. US supplied Oil was meant to tide them over until LWR came on line. https://www.nti.org/learn/treaties-and-regimes/korean-peninsula-energy-development-organization-kedo/
  5. IIRC 2012/13 US was shipping NK foodies and imploring them to desist from their missiles & nuke testing when they promptly banged off a nuke https://edition.cnn.com/2012/02/29/world/asia/north-korea-nuclear-deal/ https://edition.cnn.com/2013/01/23/world/asia/north-korea-nuclear-test/ https://edition.cnn.com/2013/02/12/world/north-korea-nuclear-reax/
  6. Have you created a 'Z' folder to hold mods in the data folder?
  7. http://www.thespacereview.com/article/3756/1 Right after Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon, the Soviet Union landed a spacecraft carrying a chimpanzee named Boris 504. The Soviet plan was to have Boris leave his spacecraft and walk on the Moon right after the American astronauts did, simultaneously mocking and stealing some of the publicity from the American achievement. But despite a successful landing, a malfunctioning hatch prevented Boris from leaving his spacecraft. He died on the Moon when his oxygen ran out, angrily banging a wrench against a faulty hatch. http://www.thespacereview.com/article/3751/1
  8. Looking at the save file - a lot of units are tired / exhausted from sprinting around. FO and HQ in building are both exhausted and hiding which won't help accuracy.
  9. Official explanation is "the explosion was caused by a lightning strike". 😉 Also in the news 😱
