Van Gogh's Sunflowers are among the Dutch artist's most familiar paintings and, as such, a popular item for decoration.

Image


Van Gogh created several paintings on the same theme and details make it possible to tell one version from another.

From the light blue background, it is possible to tell it is not F453, F454, F457, F458 or F459.
Image


So we're left with two possibilities : F455 or F456.

The bottom of the flowerpot is darker in F455 but there's no way to see this difference, no matter the angle :

Image Image


Although the disk flowers on both paintings look almost the same (F455 being a variation of F456) ...

Image


... it is possible to discern, in the top of the ray flowers, a green wisp which tells us that we are, beyond a shadow of a doubt, actually looking at F456 !

Image


Thanks for your attention.

Interesting. Van Gogh isn't really my thing but this puts a whole new perspective on it.

"(CNN)The signs at Glacier National Park warning that its signature glaciers would be gone by 2020 are being changed.

The signs in the Montana park were added more than a decade ago to reflect climate change forecasts at the time by the US Geological Survey, park spokeswoman Gina Kurzmen told CNN.

In 2017, the park was told by the agency that the complete melting off of the glaciers was no longer expected to take place so quickly due to changes in the forecast model, Kurzmen said. But tight maintenance budgets made it impossible for the park to immediately change the signs."


You forgot all the interesting bits in the article :

"But the glacier warning isn't being removed entirely, she told CNN. Instead, the new signs will say: "When they will completely disappear depends on how and when we act. One thing is consistent: the glaciers in the park are shrinking."

And also :

Humans are responsible, scientist says
In 2017, a study released by USGS and Portland State University said that in the past half century, some of the ice formations in Montana had lost 85% of their size and the average shrinkage was 39%.
"In several decades they will be mostly gone. They will grow so small that they will disappear. They will certainly be gone before the end of the century," Dan Fagre, the study's lead scientist, had said.


Also noteworthy :

And humans are responsible, Fagre said after the study's release.
"There are variations in the climate but it is humans that have made all those variations warmer," he said. "The glaciers have been here for 7,000 years and will be gone in decades. This is not part of the natural cycle."


I could go on forever so here's the link to the full article :

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/01/08/us/g ... index.html

Not an essential read for Deplorables, though ...

No You forgot all the interesting bits in the article....

Yet again hyper dire predictions were made they weren't even close to accurate, or seemingly based in that much reality.

Of course they're going to melt, we've been coming out of an ice age for quite a while now and it's to be expected. And I'm sure you're right that humans have responsibility, but is that responsibility .0001% or 100%?

Are we ready to start building nuclear power plants, to bridge the gap until either we discover nuclear fusion or we become 100% solar and wind? It's the most surefire way to rapidly reduce carbon emissions.

The US reduced its carbon emissions, I think we can continue to strive to reduce all forms of pollution. But considering that China and India have been given a complete free pass for the next 10 years on their emissions levels, it makes me think the people pushing these concerns aren't actually serious and fixing this problem.

Predictions about glaciers shrinkage aren't "even close to accurate , or seemingly based in that much reality." ? Them glaciers be advancing, then ?

Do we want them glaciers to be advancing? If they were would we be cool with that? Or instead of the earth turning into a flaming ball would we be saying it's going to turn to ice? We people have an issue with change. We want things to stay the same...fear over climate change illustrates this really well.

The prediction was that by 2020 the glaciers would be completely gone. How is there any reality in that prediction?

Now if you want to make an open and prediction that a day will come when there will be no more glaciers and they will be completely melted away, for what it's worth, I think we can all agree that that will eventually happen given enough time.

I remember when I pirated my first program via 56k. Left it running overnight, got up in the morning, and there it was... all 6.8 MB. Saved hundreds of dollars!

It's great as an appetizer.

I buy the cauliflower florets in small portions

Image

I then mix mayonnaise with some ketchup and it's ready.

Unlike boiled cauliflower, raw cauliflower is crunchy and tasty.

Per AOC, cauliflower is racist!
