“But when I fell in love with black, it contained all color. It wasn’t a negation of color. It was an acceptance. Because black encompasses all colors. Black is the most aristocratic color of all. You can be quiet and it contains the whole thing.”

“When I began to realize how often we quarreled, how often I picked on her with nervous irritation, I became aware that our love was doomed: love had turned into a love-affair with a beginning and an end. I could name the very moment when it had begun, and one day I knew I should be able to name the final hour…. It was as though our love were a small creature caught in a trap and bleeding to death: I had to shut my eyes and wring its neck.”

—   Graham Greene, The End of the Affair (via indypendent-thinking)

“All of this like some ancient anointing. So be it. Evoke the forms. Where you’ve nothing else construct ceremonies out of the air and breathe upon them.”

Ceramic Materials Improve Hydrogen StorageEngineers from UC San Diego have created new ceramic materials that could be used to store hydrogen safely and efficiently. The compounds are made from mixtures of calcium hexaboride, strontium and barium hexaboride. They also have demonstrated that the compounds could be manufactured using a simple, low-cost manufacturing method known as combustion synthesis.The work is at the proof of concept stage and is part of a $1.2 million project funded by the National Science Foundation, a collaboration between UC San Diego, Alfred Univ. in upstate New York and the Univ. of Nevada, Reno. The manufacturing process for the ceramics is faster and simpler than traditional methods used to manufacture these types of materials. The researchers presented their work at the third International Symposium on Nanoscience and Nanomaterials in Mexico.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2014/04/ceramic-materials-improve-hydrogen-storage
