The bible verses that most bothered me

One of the Bible messages that bothered me a lot (Matthew 10:34–36):

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law, a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’

“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

Trilobites

I thought I should share what I learn today — trilobites. Trilobites are a well-known fossil group of extinct marine arthropods that form the class Trilobita. The reason why it is so fascinating is that they were one of the most successful of all early animals, roaming the oceans for over 270 million years. They’ve developed eyes to see during that period too.

Here’s an excerpt from David Attenborough’s excellent documentary First Life on this specific topic.

Retina-ready images using SCSS mixins

Saw it on 37signals website, an easy way to do Retina-ready images through CSS if you have SCSS installed.

[code language=”css”]@mixin image-2x($image, $width, $height) {
@media (min–moz-device-pixel-ratio: 1.3),
(-o-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2.6/2),
(-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 1.3),
(min-device-pixel-ratio: 1.3),
(min-resolution: 1.3dppx) {
/* on retina, use image that’s scaled by 2 */
background-image: url($image);
background-size: $width $height;
}
}[/code]

Usage:

[code language=”css”]div.logo {
background: url("logo.png") no-repeat;
@include image-2x("logo2x.png", 100px, 25px);
}[/code]

It has also been modified to include Google Nexus 7 with it’s 1.3 pixel ratio as a retina-capable device.
