Optical illusions by Aaron “A Major” Mackinson”

Aaron and I have been mates for a while now so it was only right, that after a shoot, I asked him to be my guinea pig while I figure this whole video thing out. So here guys, my first video!

He’s always been packed full of talent and I’ve always appreciated my little listening sessions with him so, I thought it might be a good start to share some of his magic with you.

I totally love this song. I really like the melody and the meaning both literally and metaphorically. I think skin is beautiful and will go as far as to say it is your best accessory. So taking care of yourself and being confident enough to not have to wear a truck load of make up or Photoshop your all your photos is important. Be able to live with the understanding that social networking is an optical illusion: filters/airbrushing/Photoshop all creating this misconception of what true beauty is. “It’s fine to be just who you are” – that’s where the true beauty lies.

AND YES! My name was harmed in the making of this video. Its Olaide {or-lie-day}

World’s languages traced back to single African mother tongue: scientists.

New Zealand researchers have traced every human language — from English to Mandarin — back to an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.

Scientists say they have traced the world’s 6,000 modern languages — from English to Mandarin — back to a single “mother tongue,” an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
New research, published in the journal Science, suggests this single ancient language resulted in human civilization — a Diaspora — as well as advances in art and hunting tool technology, and laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures.

The research, by Quentin Atkinson from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, also found that speech evolved far earlier than previously thought. And the findings implied, though did not prove, that modern language originated only once, an issue of controversy among linguists, according to the New York Times.

Before Atkinson came up with the evidence for a single African origin of language, some scientists had argued that language evolved independently in different parts of the world.

Atkinson found that the first populations migrating from Africa laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures by taking their single language with them. “It was the catalyst that spurred the human expansion that we all are a product of,” Atkinson said, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Atkinson traced the number distinct sounds, or phonemes — consonants, vowels and tones — in 504 world languages, finding compelling evidence that they can be traced back to a long-forgotten dialect spoken by our Stone Age ancestors, according to the Daily Mail.

Atkinson also hypothesized that languages with the most sounds would be the oldest, while those spoken by smaller breakaway groups would utilize fewer sounds as variation and complexity diminished.

The study found that some of the click-using languages of Africa have more than 100 phonemes, or sounds, whereas Hawaiian, toward the far end of the human migration route out of Africa, has only 13, the Times reported. English has about 45 phonemes.

The phoneme pattern mirrors the pattern of human genetic diversity as humans spread across the globe from sub-Saharan Africa around 70,000 years ago.

We are on the cusp of my favourite season and I’m rather excited. I’m in love with my autumn colour pallet and I’ve had to update my nail polish collection soooo- I got these and I am very pleased. Plus I have some major issues with chippage so finding this adhesive base coat has been a blessing. Normally within 24 hours I can literally peel the whole layer of nail polish off, with this basecoat however, I’ve happy done loads of cleaning and gardening and two days later they still look perfect. Thumbs up to Essie.
