Thursday, October 20th at 4:30pm
Rockefeller 002
Operation Shady RAT. Stuxnet. Conficker. International and National Strategies for Cybersecurity. Cyber Czars and Cyber Commands. Digital Pearl Harbors and Cyber Maginot Lines.
How can the US prevent a major cyber attack, and how should it respond to one? Are there policy models from other realms that we can draw upon to develop a strategy for cyber defense, cyber deterrence, or cyber offensives? And how important is cyber defense for national security in the 21st Century? Is cyber war likely to be a means of decisive conflict in the coming decades, or simply one of the many tools of influence and statecraft in international politics? When historians write about conflict in the 21st Century, will cyber operations be a headline or a footnote?
Join us to listen to experts in cyber security and defense policy as they discuss one of the major emerging security challenges of the new century. Moderated by Professor Daryl Press, panelists include: Martin Libicki, RAND Corporation; Herb Lin, National Research Council; and Jon Lindsay, University of California, San Diego.

i am so confused about my chinese brush paining…?

Monday, November 28th, 2011

ok so i just got this new chinese brush painting kit. it came with an ink stick and ink stone. the problem is that i have no idea how to make the ink. it said to grind the ink stick on the stone with 2 drops of water, but it makes barely any! so when i try to load my brush like it says there is only enough for the tip. does anyone know what i am doing wrong or how to do it? please help me. thanks so much!
thanks for answering guys! now i can go on and paint like a mad man! :D

Ok… put more than just 2 drops of water to the stone. You need much more than that! I guess whoever wrote the instruction has a big water dropper, LOL

Get some water onto the flat part of the stone. Use the stick to grind it. Add more water to it every so often when you see the water becomes kind of black. You can push the black ink you already made in the process into the well of the stone. Keep adding more water on the flat part and keep grinding and pushing ink to the well. In no time, you will have plenty of ink in the well.

Writing is an ancient Chinese art?

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Writing is an ancient Chinese art. Chinese calligraphy and painting are well known for the uniqueness of designs. I need all the stuff required for Chinese calligraphy like special ink stick, brushes, etc.

And your question is???

how to paint evenly on small drawings using the chinese brush?

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

using the chinese brush to paint usually causes the drawing to look too watery….how do i aviod that…any suggestions on ow to paint small delicate drawings?

It’s not the brush. Perhaps, It’s the paint or type of ink.

Maybe you need to load you brush more often.
Maybe your not loading your brush as full as it could be.
Experiment with different strokes.

Good luck,
