Metalworks HRC

Dear All

-- Greetings, wonderful show at the PNE; managed to see a few friends from the past...here is a circle divider from Tim McCreight's Book-Complete Metalsmith-use it to divide up circles into equal parts. love the presentations of our club at the show as well as our Presidents display of jewellery/carving. he has gathered some great talent behind him. I see a group of seven in the far future.

cheers

     Metalworks  your makerbot sample request

dear all,
here's a suggestion for a program for the HCR one of these days .. there also is a place (3DSmith) west on Seymour at 518 West Pender on the north side of the street a few stores down that has a range of 3-D printers and he has displays of what it can do ..particularly to jewelry he has a range of pendants/rings n' others that he had cast in silver derived from the 3-d printer...i will get some cards from him to get to  our next meeting..see attached letter. enjoy the attached video file.
 
 We've released new products since then, and we have a wide network of resellers in Canada now, and I'd be happy to set up a demo or talk about time and money-saving uses for Creative jewelers Guild.

For example, you might like this new video we produced with Lockheed Martin about their satellite telescopic lenses: http://mbot.co/2m88i87  MakerBot One MetroTech Center, 21st Floor Brooklyn, NY 11201 W

Enjoy viewing the attached websites...instructional DVD shorts on techniques/tool reviews/tips n' tricks..titanium strip pieces for clamping down your soldering projects (download pics of some clamp configurations)

--Dear all,

 here are 2 websites that are both free and paid for service subscription .. some of the free viewing is listed on Andrew Berry's website and on youtube. They are: www.atthebench.com -over 1000 instructionals available and he is producing 3 DVD shorts each week with techniques/tool reviews/top tricks n tips. he is a definite well versed instructor and covers what we all would like to achieve in jewelry and at a fractional cost of doing a jewelry course in the lower mainland. it might be the way to expand one's experttise in the long run the next website introduces titanium strips for usage as clamps for soldering. you can view the assorted ways they are shaped and view Andrews Berry's use of them on youtube. www.andrewberry.co.uk/product/knew-concepts-titanium-soldering-strips/# you can download pics of the various shaping of his minicamps on this web page

Metalworks-from HCR - Becker youtube on Kinetic jewelry

Dear All

Jeweler Kinetic Rings - Studio Michael Berger


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69kVOM7uQ5Y

 ... loves transforming graceful hands into eye-catching stages. Appropriately, his hand-made collections feature kinetic jewellery pieces that move and spin on the wearer's hand. At first glance, his stainless steel or gold ring sculptures seem to be attractively heavy, clearly shaped pieces. It is when you put them on and start moving your hands that their full magic is revealed: the top elements, which nestle closely together, start to move and rotate.

-this is a beauty of engineering/structure and art...all rolled into one .. savour this !

Metalworks-from HCR-Studio Craft as Career-a Guide to Achieving excellence in Art-Making

Dear all,

discovered a nice synoptic book on art as career containing a 45 year career by author Paul J. Stankard's advice and attendant with this is a synopsis of 48 Artist A-Z showing their works and adding a pithy piece of advice to pursuing one's dreams (as well as their websites)...if you know someone who is younger/eager and artistic this might be a book that could be a good mentoring book to use.

Studio Craft as a Career Guide to Achieving Excellence in Art-making




an example of advice ?

p 191-Sondra Sherman:  Creative:



Growth-protect time to explore and follow curiosity
be fearless (or pretend to be)
be obsessive
cultivate and embrace your idiosyncrasy
be brave, be brave, be brave


for Practical concerns:

recognize the difference between creating and producing; knowing both are necessary in professional practice and not always in desired proportions explore the varied types of practice in your field-try them-directly or as an employee/assistant knowing yourself is key to understanding what motivates your creative growth and what form of practice will be fulfilling and viable.

Motivation must be internal and supported by your personal values or it will be fragile.

now add another 47 words of advice from other artist in glass/wood/metal etc and quotes: i.e.

page 150 - Ferne Jacobs Carl Jung said:   Pick the hardest thing to do, because if you do that, all your energy comes together to focus on it. If it is too easy, not enough energy gets engaged. I always want to be in a mystery, and learn something new, so I take the risk!



Cheers,

Mike

The Breaker News: Christy Flippin' Clark and her necklace

The News1130 Thursday debate was supposed to be presented without banners for the provincial parties.  No RAH, RAH distractions in the background but the News1130 forgot about foreground symbolism.

Christy Clark broke those rules of engagement and wore her BC Liberal Party emblem necklace.

  a gold outlined map of British Columbia that bounced around

and around

 *****************************

Bob Mackin: Debate #1: Next time, rent podiums, a stopwatch and a buzzer


Her Binder Full of Talking Points
The biggest distraction? The most-seasoned political veteran actually looked like the least-prepared. Clark came with a thick binder full of talking points that she flipped through and the microphone caught every fwip-fwip-fwip of her pages. The former talkshow host should’ve known better, and so should her cadre of handlers. The sound of russling papers was distracting for the viewer and probably for the other leaders.
By contrast, Weaver had a notebook and Horgan a very small stack of papers. Clark is a career politician who should really know her files better.

North Vancouver RCMP: Where-did-this-money-come-from? BC Liberal secret donors?

Google Search Criteria:

RCMP’s Sensitive Investigations Unit, part of force’s Federal Serious and Organized Crime division


Metro News
.... a “huge loophole” in British Columbia’s election laws may have allowed corporations and unions in B.C. to keep their hefty donations out of the public eye — at least until long after the May 9 election is over.

According to a government transparency watchdog, B.C. voters should ask every would-be MLA one question at campaign stops and all-candidate forums: “Will you disclose your donors before election day,” suggested Duff Conacher, co-founder of Democracy Watch. “Then watch them all squirm.”

The reason for the question, he said, is that under B.C.’s already lax donations rules — which permit unlimited donations, donors outside Canada, and $3,000 in anonymous gifts per candidate — individual candidates don’t have to reveal who gave them money until three months after every election.  ....

Where did this money come from?

North Vancouver
2017-04-19 15:35 PDT
File # 2017-8001 



That is what the North Vancouver RCMP is asking after they seized a significant amount of cash and rare coins from a male with no fixed address. The monies were discovered on April 06, 2017 at approximately 11:00 pm in the Lower Lonsdale area of North Vancouver after the North Vancouver RCMP Strike Force had observed a male acting suspiciously. The male was arrested for ‘Trespassing at Night’.

Subsequent to the arrest police seized from this 21 year-old male a large amount of cash along with a valuable coin collection of international origins. The male also had in his possession a pair of bolt/lock cutters. When questioned by police the suspect could not provide a lawful explanation of how and where he came to be in possession of the large amount of money.

Investigators are certain that the monies are stolen, perhaps from a break and enter of a residence or business, said Cpl Richard De Jong of the North Vancouver RCMP. Residents, not only of the North Shore, are encouraged to check the places they may hide their valuables to see if they are still there!

If these monies are your property and you can provide accurate and specific details of the total amount the police would be pleased to return them to you. Please quote file number 2017-8001. The North Vancouver RCMP can be contacted at 604-985-1311. By identifying the rightful owner of the money it will assist the police in charging the suspect criminally with ‘Possession of Stolen Property’.

Christy Clark circumvented BC Gaming license as a 'Privilege of Membership' fundraiser event

UPDATE:
 George Abbott website "Join Team BC & Win a Trip to Vancouver to meet the Premier"

Our club had a $2,000 fundraiser ($5,000 or less category) for the Hastings community area with the proceeds going to a youth group within the recreational centre.   We had to fill out multiple forms, submit them for review by the BC Government, and we checked daily to see how the application was proceeding. At the last moment we got the thumbs up.

Whereas .....



 ... the BC Liberal Party has never made an application through the BC Gaming Licensing division nor read, apparently, the Elections Act of BC.  The BC Liberals sought out only one 'law' which they see as a higher authority to circumvent the laws of British Columbia when it comes to running a lottery:


 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066 USA

 
What happens?

 Feb 2, 2015
Watch as Premier Christy Clark phones new members just to say thanks for their membership.
It's just one of the privileges of membership - getting to connect with the leaders of the province who are working hard to build a stronger British Columbia.  You can join those leaders by signing up with just a few simple clicks here: bclib.ca/join .

Plus, if you join right now, you'll be entered to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Vancouver to meet with the Premier over lunch.  We'll announce the winner in May.


What happens when you join the BC Liberal Party?  We hold a lottery!

1) Lottery to determine a winner based upon membership fees
2) One winner only
3) Regulated by You Tube Standard License
4) The winner remains anonymous (no one will know there was an actual winner)
5) We don't declare how much we raised illicitly
6) Bob Mackin will not be able to do an FOI because this is in-house
7) Unlimited Lottery participants


Join Now For a chance to win a trip to Vancouver to meet Premier Christy Clark

What happens when you join Today's BC Liberals? - YouTube

Brought to you Courtesy of a You Tube Standard License
Based upon a past transgression by the BC NDP in the 1990s 'Today's BC Liberal' Party put the fix in so a political party couldn't let it happen again.  Somehow BC Liberal Party Leader Christy Clark who authorized the lottery must have forgotten about ...... it as Premier Christy Clark.

Sounds pretty awesome, right?

Well, if that’s not enough incentive to join, let me remind you that every passing day brings us closer to another election when, once again, BC’s future will be at stake. That’s where you come in – we need you on our roster to help us bring home yet another big win in 2017 – a win that will protect BC’s economy for this generation, and for generations to come.

That’s why we’re offering up a special prize for those who join TEAM BC 2017 early. We’re offering our new and returning teammates a chance to meet with the coach, Premier Christy Clark, over lunch in beautiful downtown Vancouver. We’ll pay the way for one BC resident (and their guest of choice) who signs up between now and April 30, 2015 – all you have to do is register.
 
Oh – and if you renewed or joined at any point this year, you’re also entered – we appreciate your pre-season spirit!

We’ll announce the winner in May. Until then, stay in touch by subscribing to our emails, volunteering, or by attending local events to meet BC MLAs and the Premier’s Cabinet.

All the Glitz and Glamour on Christy Clark being the longest serving Premier is false according to Brad Bennett


Vaughn Palmer
Bennett replied that Clark was not running for a fifth term. She is just now wrapping up her first full term as premier. “She’s running for re-election and she deserves it.”

Gordon Campbell 'won' his election but lied to voters by bringing in the hated HST and was forced out by his incompetent RADAR.  The BC Liberal Party anointed Christy Clark who then proceeded to complete El Gordo's failed FULL term of office.

Part Terms don't count as FULL Terms

Christy Clark has only had ONE full term as a Premier IF she is there for the swearing in of the next Premier.

Therefore Brad Bennett is absolutely correct when he spoke to Vaughn Palmer yesterday.

And furthermore Christy Clark and her handlers, including Brad Bennett, have been lying to the public just so she can have photo ops.

Omhhhhhhhhhh  Omhhhhhhh   Omhhhh Omh


Premiers:


34th Campbell, Gordon Muir     June 5, 2001 - Mar. 14, 2011               37-39

35th  Clark, Christy                    Mar. 14, 2011-  ????                             39-40
