Hiro-Meshi【Talk】x Yuki Sato (佐藤祐基)-Vol.2 : Hiro Mizushima (水嶋ヒロ)のヒロメシトーク


Hey, what were we talking about? Oh ya, so my priority is my family. And I found difficulties in schedule
Management for acting career. Yea, that’s difficult. I wanna talk a little more about my priority. So when we have baby,
I need to take care of him/her with my wife. What if I say “I can’t make it,
I gotta go to work tomorrow”? I’m afraid there would be
lack of communication between us. I agree. I also feel it’s difficult to manage schedule. For example, friend’s wedding party,
I’m always not sure if I can make it. Right. That kind of problem…. I get your point. Yea, like… Even though we know they need our response ASAP. And we feel bad that
we only can tell right before the day, Yes, sometimes we can’t help it… For example,
like ceremonial occasions, like a funeral. I have to make it to no matter if I have shooting. So it’s easier to ask for day off. But for wedding, it’s a little….you know… We can’t. That’s not easy right? No, that’s not. If that’s family’s wedding,
it’s easier to tell ahead of time not to put anything
on my calendar. Right. So I also had that kind of difficulties… I feel you. Especially in my 20s.
Now I feel it’s getting easier to request though. I get your point.
Especially when we are young. Well, so I was struggling with like…
that kind of scheduling things And I thought
I could not be swamped with those things. So now
I’m taking current style to manage
the schedule by myself. I see. But I think you were originally that type. Yea, kind of. Yes. Like “I don’t wanna be managed!” Exactly. Because I am the type who thinks
it’s better to handle everything by myself. Yea, I know I was like that for sure. You know… When we were shooting Kamen Rider series, You left an impression like
you were alway lacking time. I mean…like…
we got free time during the shooting. Yes. In the free time, for example… Do you remember you were writing lyrics ? Oh, yea. Writing lyrics… Because I was writing songs. That also made me feel like.. like you want to be more free, you like to be free. You thought so ? Yes, I did. Wow. I was just tired and slept,
saying like “Free time! I can sleep!”. Yea, I remember you did. It was so tight schedule
that we needed to sleep when we got free time. But you are right, Well…it’s always hard for actors
to have too much waiting time. To be honest, I didn’t want to waste the time.
Some people said I live my life too fast. But I thought like somehow…
I gotta make use of the time. I don’t know why I was in such a hurry. Yes, right. Now I wonder. But I’m sure I was that kind of person. I was thinking like…
like I gotta get immersed in acting. Yea, you were… You are very good at acting.
I think you were always facing acting straightly. Once you decide what to face,
you don’t see anything more than that. That’s true. That’s kind of the style
I feel comfortable with most. I see. I know that…
Sometimes I’m kind of irresponsible. Are you? So once I get something decided,
I just need to head toward it. I see. For example, if I don’t have anything, I know I need to set the goal by myself.
Now, I know that we need the skill to decide
what to do by ourselves. But at that time,
I was just like I got a thing to do, and just do it. I could not do anything more than that. I see. Yea. Now I know you face yourself seriously,
finding out that kind of things. I guess we were not enough to talk about
those things at that time. No, we were not. In acting career, those things are reflected in our acting
as our styles, right? Yes, absolutely. You think so? Well… Looking back on the past…
I guess now you can control many things though. Well, I think it changed what is reflected. Different from the past? Totally different. And when you just stay there without words… If people feel something from you, or people feel you have something, it must be what your life made. I’m pretty sure it is. I guess it’s fun for you to act now. I’m not sure about that. Is it? Yes. I think it’s fun now. But because now I am here for being free… I’m not sure if I can be free as an actor. You can make the environment by yourself. Wow that’s cool. Impossible. Yea, that’s impossible. In Japan, people would say like “what’s with you?”. Yea, so that’s fine. Sometimes
I have chance to do something like acting. On that occasion,
sometimes I enjoy acting,
looking forward to how I am reflected now. But it has been for a while since the last time
I did acting, being absorbed in the role. I see. I know that’s both tough and fun for actors. Right. That’s tough… so while we are trying to be absorbed in the role, Handling troubles to get there,
struggling like this way and that way, it is hard time, but at the same time ,
that’s the only motivation. I see. I feel like “now it’s tough situation, but I am getting by.
“So I gotta feel happy”. I’m sure you are good at acting. No, I’m not. I think you are, listening to you. You are much better than me. I can’t do anymore than this. But If I were you, you know, if I try to be absorbed,
being obsessed with acting like that,
I would die. Really? Too tough. But you like to be bullied, don’t you? Ah, yes. I guess so. Sometimes I see your happy face when you are teased. Really. I guess so. I believed I am more like sadistic. Yes, exactly. Right? You act like sadist,
but you smile when you are teased. Yea, I’m a strong masochist. Yes, you are. That’s why you are good at acting. Because acting is really tough. And lonely. Fighting to face the role. For me, I think that is not free. I see. I feel like I want to do it in my own way. Don’t get me wrong. Of course I know there is a director
and he has his intention. And I know he has kind of general perspective but… I feel uncomfortable when I think we can make it better. Ah, I see. So I see your way of acting has been changed. Sorry, I have not seen the recent ones. No problem. But that kind of people would feel it. You know,
recently I have acted a role of the eldest of brothers,
who is living in countryside during the war. Then co-starred with
Shunsuke Kazama as a younger brother. Yea, yea. And Nana Seino as well. I was the eldest brother with tough look. Shaven head. Wow. I was just like this, without words. I see. I needed to express without words. That is… kind of higher level… as an actor. Yea, that was challenging. So I am glad to do it now. At this age, the encounter with roles is also important. I see. Well, there is no answer even after experiences. No. That’s just the result of every step we take. True.

Hiro-Meshi【Talk】x Yuki Sato (佐藤祐基)-Vol.3 : Hiro Mizushima (水嶋ヒロ)のヒロメシトーク


We have been talking about acting. I have been away from acting… not totally away though… anyway it’s been a while. Yes. I’m afraid people can’t catch up. OK. Let’s talk about other things too. Alright, no problem. Now we have chance to talk… Yes. Oh, this is topic of acting again. What’s that? The other day, Didn’t you transform? I did. I saw that scene. I transformed. I saw that in SNS. I see. Today I made saba-miso. Right. I made it for you. And I think that’s the important point. Yes. Why I eat saba-miso. Why you made saba-miso. Yes. It’s because you did a great job. I see. I transformed for your share. I entrust you with it. entrust me… It’s all done though. Yea, it’s done. It’s done. But I was watching it and saw you… I felt something. What… what did you feel? What did you feel? Something like… My progress? No, I’m not talking down to you like that. I felt more like…”Good, that’s right for you.” Yea, I understand. But the set has not been changed. Really. Just as it used to be. I see. There was some changes in staffs though. So you remember well? Remember what? I feel bad for fans of Kamen Rider. But when I decided to make saba-miso,
I tried to remember the episode of saba-miso. But I could not remember some parts. What do you mean? Well… I don’t really remember
why that role left such a big impression of saba-miso. You made saba-miso at every opportunity. I made it so often? I remember you made it very often. You were a specialist of cooking. Right. But why that was saba-miso? Was it the first one you made for us? No. I remember you showed up with tofu in your hand. Yea, tofu. And when I started this channel… No. I mean, this program, well… Everyone asks me to make saba-miso
relating to that role on comments. The impression of saba-miso is so strong. Yea, it is. I made something with tofu as well. What is saba-miso… What was that? I don’t know… But it was not only one time, not one or two times. I guess it was kind of…symbolic food. I don’t know why. But you did cooking very often. Yes, I did a lot. So the shooting was tough. Saba-miso… you don’t like fish right? No, I still don’t. I don’t really like it. I do remember you don’t like fish. Yea, so it was kind of tough. That’s good. Keep cooking fish. Hmmm… You are not starting to like it? Well… I think I am… What about raw fish? I can eat raw fish. I don’t like it when it’s cooked.
I feel like I’m eating aquarium. That’s stupid. No. Have you ever smelled aquarium? Yes, I have. That smell. You mean fishy smell right? Yes, yes. You don’t like blueback? Hmm, I guess I still don’t like it. Silver-skinned fish? Is sablefish a blueback? Sablefish… I guess it’s whitefish… Right, Ms. Noguchi? Whitefish? I can eat sablefish,
like Saikyo-zuke (pickled in sweet Kyoto-style miso). Now I can eat those fish. I see. And bream. I can eat it. You can eat whitefish. Yes, I can. Light ones. Yes. Blueback fish…
If it’s grilled, I don’t really like it. What about marinated mackerel? OK. OK?
So you can eat raw fish. Yes, that’s OK. So you can’t accept any fishy smell. No, I can’t. You feel like you are eating aquarium. Yes, just like eating aquarium. But I didn’t feel any aquarium from this. Really? No, I didn’t. Thanks to Ms. Noguchi. There was about 3 steps to get rid of the smell. That might be necessary to eat it. I hope you keep going. And one more thing…
We are reaching our late 30s. Somehow… Do you have any expectation…in the future? What I expect? It’s kind of like… For me,
I think 40 will be one of the turning point in my life. So sometimes I think about many things toward it. Yes. Maybe as an actor, and as myself. After all, I have some reason why I want to be free,
such as my family. So I want to know
if you have something like family to me… or you wish to have success as an actor or… Actually that’s changing. I would rather be bound by either one in my nature.
Although I prefer to be free. So I’m kind of relieved when I have it. Yes. So I feel like I don’t need to be only actor. I just found myself enjoying other than acting. Uh huh. For example, I do have an interest in making channel
or contents just like this. As a rough plan, I want to have this kind of filming team. That sound very good. Yes, so I wonder what to do for the plan,
or what kind of thing I want to make with my team. Of course it’s OK to work individually,
but I also feel I can do in that way. I don’t need to set any limitation on myself,
and I am working on making environment to try
a lot of things. Now I feel I don’t persist in being actor. Well, that’s a big change. Yes, I changed. Different from you
who used to be facing acting squarely. But after all, that’s also one of expression. Yes, exactly. But I think I still want to be the one who expresses. And I am, kind of in my nature. I agree. You like to appear in public.
I think that’s to your taste. But I was brought up by my dad in the way
like I was always the second. I see. Like I’m not the first, the second. That’s one of the reason I feel like this. That’s complicated. So I mean I am the type of backseat player? I see. Supporting behind the scene. Not the sun? But my job is to appear in public. I have come to understand the meaning though.
I like this kind of work for sure. It might not be correct to say “backseat.” But I feel I am kind of good at supporting
behind the scene. If I don’t care if I like it or not,
I just feel I’m kind of good at it. I see. But I know I still have a lot of things to do,
and things to study. I think I get your point. In my case, it’s kind of like… I feel like I would rather be the moon than the sun.
That’s always on my mind without being told. So, it’s about 7 years… since I established my company to support
my wife’s business. I have been throwing myself into the role
of support and management. And I know I am happy to see people shine out. Yea. So I mean you are also interested in those things? Exactly. That is good. Moreover,
it is important for backseat player to understand
the feeling of the one who appears in public. Most of them don’t. That could be a difference. Yes, true. There should be suitable advice. So some ideas have come up to my mind
through the experiences. Cool. It’s kind of like… For example… Let me go back to acting topic. Sure, sure. For acting, to understand the logic
how things are composed, I have been studying something like method
from united states. I see. So when I approach around 40,
then I can be the one who teach it to people. I see, that sounds good. Including that part, I am still taking lessons. Are you? You are great. Such a hard worker. I still take lessons by a teacher who I really like.
I respect him a lot. That’s good, that kind of encounters with people. I hope I can develop things in many ways. Wow, awesome.
I look forward to you to succeed in that field. Right. Then you are gonna make me a meal here again? I would say “How’s it going?” Cool. “Working hard?” So please visit me again. Of course, you have to invite me. Really? Why not. I guess that… Of course I will eat.
I would rather cook too. You will cook too? You know, In my program… In HIRO-MESHI… You are very good at cooking right? I might be good at it. See? So that doesn’t go well. I’m not sure, but… That doesn’t suit to the format of my channel. But maybe… If it’s a problem of liking or disliking it, I love it. That sounds cool. But if when I cut something… I might be interrupted with unnecessary thought
like I gotta cut it quicker. This again right? Like I gotta do it in that way. But I think I will somehow improve, not only bungling. It will be easier to collaborate together in the future,
when you have a channel too. Do you think so? You want to try a lot of things right?
I think you can try because you are already motivated. True. So we gotta do it now. Let’s do it. I will try to improve my cooking soon. No worries. You like cooking right? Yes, I have been like…
I want to do something for others since I was a child. I was a child who draw for my mom. I see. I think it is to my taste. With Ms. Noguchi. Yea, so asking Ms. Noguchi… Right. Learning general things.
I hope I can make my own style. It’s important. We need to do it to improve ourselves. That’s right… That’s also the point I recently… you know. So, looking forward to the day. Sure. Always welcome. Come to enjoy my dish again. Of course. I guess we gonna have an episode again
to make a dish related to our co-starring work. Cool. I will ask you then. Sure. Thanks. Just send me LINE for a meal. Got it. It’s always welcomed. OK, then I will ask you casually. See you again. Thanks for the meal!

Professional Logo Design – Adobe Illustrator CS6 (Pixel)

Professional Logo Design – Adobe Illustrator CS6 (Pixel)


Let simplify this design first. If we see
this logo, its main attraction is letter P. so to form this logo, the concept of pixels
is used. In digital imaging, a pixel, pel, or picture element is a physical point in
a raster image, Every image you see is made of pixels. It
is the sample of original image. Each pixel are very small square shape consist of various
color. Thus this logo represent the visual feature of pixal.
If we study this design, there are number of square of different shades of color, whole
forming a rectangle. There are 5 by 8 division of square placed horizontally and vertically.
the empty space representing letter ‘P’ To create this : 1. To Draw a rectangle , first select the
Rectangle tool. Click the left mouse click button. A pallet will appear, with attributes
height and width. fill the space with Width and Height in the ratio 5 by 8.
2. To divide the rectangle into 5 by 8 division. Select the rectangle and go to Object>path
>Split into grid. The option pallet will appear. Fill the value with 5 columns and
8 rows. This will divide the rectangle into multiple number of squares.
3. Now delete the squares to form an empty shape of letter P. And delete few more squares
randomly from below. 4. If we see the logo carefully, the upper
right corner and the inner corner have rounded edge. So select the rounded rectangle tool
and click the left mouse button. A pallet box will aprear, fill the corner radius 20
points and ok. 5. Now place this rounded rectangle
over the design in such a way that there top and
right edges overlapping the lower design. Now select the rectangle and the top square
, with the shape builder tool divide the top edge and delete the piece.
6. In the same way we will do for the inner portion , scale down the rounded rectangle
to match the inner space. Select
the rectangle and the squares and
with shape builder select
the empty space. This will fill the empty space.
7. Delete the rounded rectangle 8. Now from the color pallet, which we have already prepared, select the appropriate color
an fill the square boxes. 9. Finally the we will finish the logo by
adding some drop shadow. In this way we have prepare this logo representing the feature of pixel.

I-ta-da-ki-ma-su(Let’s eat) OK? Here you go. I-ta-da-ki-ma-su(Let’s eat) Alright. Hahaha. Well, it’s kind of embarrassing. I’m kind of nervous. You know,
this is actually my first time to treat others
than my family to handmade cooking. That’s an honor. It’s so exciting. Yea, but looks very tasty. Ms. Noguchi supported me, so I believe it’s OK. Wow that’s cool. I-ta-da-ki-ma-su. (Let’s eat.) How is it? Good, good. Is it? Good, it’s delicious. It’s… properly… I did it, Ms. Noguchi! It’s delicious, Ms. Noguchi. I was bossy saying like “I did it, Mr. Noguchi.” This saba-miso has been elaborately cooked. Don’t you feel any strong taste? No, you mean fishy smell or something? Yea, yea. Not at all. At all? No. I guess people who used to eat fish
don’t care very much about the smell. But mackerel is normally easy to get fishy. Yea, that’s right. But I don’t feel any fishy smell from this. Really? Yes. Glad to hear that. This is seriously good. Thank you, Ms.Noguchi. Not too sweet, not too salty. Really? Yes. Cool, I made it. Hey, how many kinds of miso did you use, 2? 2 kinds. In my case,
I usually use ordinary miso bought at supermarket
when I cook at home. Using only ordinary miso,
not like aka-miso (red miso) or shiro-miso (white miso). Oh ya? So it results in salty taste. Well, I guess shiro-miso works well. This is good. That relieves me a lot. Then, let’s keep going while you are eating. You are the first guest for HIRO-MESHI. That’s right. But I believe we have co-starred before. Yes, we have. I think our fans who watched the work will be glad. It’s been 10 years, or more than 10 years. Right. And it was the same composition as now. We had a talk after the work had been done. Yes, we did. Do you remember that? Yes, I do. So I thought like we can have one more… One more chance to have a talk. Well,
I feel this time is kind of similar to the previous talk, without MCs. Like we need to do it by ourselves. You do remember. Of course I do. Moreover, for some reason that was tilt shot. That was tilt and two-shot and each was like this. Yea, yea. Just like that. That was exactly like this. I still remember that… Now it is not tilt shot though. I wondered why that was tilt shot. Well, we are getting old. I don’t want to be compared with that time by image. True. But all of us get old. We can’t help it. Hey, you are still 35 this year? Yes. So your birthday is coming up next February? I’m turning 36, yea 36 ! Yes, 36. Rounded up to 40. Gosh. We were in our early 20’s at the time. Yea, right. Yes, we were. So how many years have passed?
Then… 10… 15 ? It was 2000… No, 2006. I don’t know. 6 years, if it was 2006… No worries there should be answer by telop.
(Co-starring in special effects TV drama broadcast
from Jan, 2006 to Jan, 2007.) 13 years? 13 years. 13 years… There must have been a lot of things after 13 years. There have been ups and downs for sure. Right. I’m sure you have been through a lot. Yes, I have. You have? Meetings and partings. There must be. Repeatedly. It happens. There were a lot. Well,
but I’ve been married for 11 years out of the 13 years. Yea. Right,
so I have been through changes more like in life stage
than such meetings and partings. We have been steadily walking in any way. I was depressed sometimes. You were? There were good and bad.
But still I feel this is human nature. I see.
So you mean “you were depressed,”
it was as an actor? Well, it was a time when everything was not going well.
And I blamed it on others, turning to drink… Really, I didn’t know you had such a time. Yes, I did. I like this vibes we can talk about anything each others. I like it. It’s YouTube, you know. We can talk about anything. Yes. I really had a lot of failure. Really. Is that so? Hey, like, I guess some people might get surprised
that I don’t know about your story. Can I explain it just in case? We have co-starred for a year in the works. And we became close friends. We are close friends for sure, but for some reason,
we don’t really see each others in private. We rarely meet. You just send me bullshit on LINE sometimes. Right, I remember you sometimes.
And our wedding anniversary is your birthday. Yes, yes, yes. That’s why. So at that time… Like “Hey, what’s going?” I feel like texting you like that. But not in a direct way. I get your point. I feel embarrassed. Your blood type is AB right? I also have blood type AB. Oh, yea. That’s why I thought I understood the feeling. You understand it. For example,
sometimes we have lively conversation on LINE… …but sometimes not, like no answer at all. It happens. I can understand that vibes too. I feel like that’s the blood type AB, like we are similar. That’s why I feel relax when I am with you. I feel like….
like we can talk without worrying about anything. We made our debut at the same time before that work. Oh yes, I forgot. Yea, we debuted at the same time. We have been together since then,
I mean in our show business. True.
I just got out of it after 3-4 years though. No way,
you still have big impact. Do I? Of course, for sure. But I have been away from it for a while.
How long is it… I just well… something like that. Are you still interested in acting? Interest…
Well, you know, my priority has been changed. My family is my priority.
More than anything. That’s beautiful. I learned that working as an actor takes a lot of time. In show business,
it’s natural to spend like 3-4 months for one work. Yes, it depends though. And worse, schedule depends on the script.
And it’s hard to know the schedule after a week. That’s normal. Sometimes we don’t know even tomorrow’s schedule. In that case… I finished! Hey! It was very delicious. Awesome, there was no bone? No, not at all. Thanks to great filleting. Amazing, Ms. Noguchi. It was very good, Ms. Noguchi. I made it. Oh, that’s right. Thanks to Ms.Noguchi. Sounds nice. Thank you very much. Thanks for the meal.

Professional Logo Design – Adobe Illustrator cs6 (ABC)

Professional Logo Design – Adobe Illustrator cs6 (ABC)


Before we start our design in the software
we need to understand its proportions. If we go through the LOGO, we see that it consist of three alphabet, but made
using basic shapes. We need to breakdown our design into basic shapes.
In this logo basic circle has played an important role in forming the words. Three circle are
being used with some constant thickness. In the same way a rectangle of same thickness
is used to complete letter “b”. The whole designing process behind this LOGO
is the combination of both technical as well as manual.
To start
with the Logo design. 1. We need to draw a grid of 3*3 division
of equal sides using the “split into Grid” option in PATH (Object). This gride should
be tilted to 45 degee angle by rotating with mouse with shift key pressed in keyboard.
This grid is our guide line to prepare a logo. (Lock it with CTRL+2)
2. Now draw 3 circle using elipse tool in the three box inside the grid. Ensure that
their edge are overlapping with the lines of the grid. Give a constant thickness to
the circle by adjusting the stroke thickness. Apply the same thickness to all the other
circles. 3. Using the line segment tool, now
draw a line connecting the two corresponding
circles with 45 degree angle.do the same for the other one. Draw a straight line to form
letter ‘b’. 4. Select all the shapes and convert them
into Object by going to Object>Expand. This will convert every selected shapes into object
with fill color. 5. Duplicate the small tilted rectangle for
three times. Now place it over the places where we want a division .
6. Now
select all
the object accept the three rectangle pieces and combine it to form one object.
Windows>pathfinder>combine. 7. Select one of the rectangle piece and the
object and subtract it. Pathfinder>subtract Do this for all the other pieces. In this
way you got the appropriate design. 8. Finally type “EXTRA” below the logo with a suitable text. Give
it
white color and the background red with some
gradient. This is the final result. We made this logo
by following few useful steps, which has reduced our time .

Did NASA’s Twin Study Results Just Change Spaceflight Forever?

Did NASA’s Twin Study Results Just Change Spaceflight Forever?


Most of you probably know the name Scott Kelly. He’s a retired astronaut who holds the current
U.S. record for the longest ever single spaceflight, clocking in at 342 consecutive days in space. Some of you may also know that he has an identical
twin…who is ALSO an astronaut. What are the chances of that?! Mark and Scott Kelly were the central figures
in a brand new, totally unique twin study. NASA just published the results that let us
know, in unprecedented detail, what happens to our bodies during long-term spaceflight—and
we’re here to give you the rundown. In the decades since first sending humans
into space, we’ve been monitoring spaceflight-induced physiological changes in hundreds of astronauts. We can compare an individual to themselves
before, during, and after a mission—allowing NASA to develop countermeasures against issues
like decreased bone density and decreased muscle mass. But so far, we’re most familiar with the
results of 1-4 months of spaceflight, and comparing an individual to themselves doesn’t
clearly let us know what could be caused by spaceflight vs. something that may have happened
to that individual anyway. If we’re expecting humans to survive years
for something like transport to Mars, how do we prep for that? How do we know what’s going to happen to
our bodies? Well, Scott and Mark Kelly presented an incredibly
exciting opportunity for NASA. While Scott spent a year in space, Mark served
as his ‘genetically matched ground control’. Both twins were monitored closely before,
throughout, and after the mission—physiologically, genetically, and cognitively—creating a
massive amount of data in the first twin study of its kind. Some things changed during spaceflight that,
while SUPER interesting and important to keep measuring in future studies, don’t seem
to pose a significant health risk. For example, body mass decreased, gut microbiome
composition changed, and inflammation increased—all temporarily. Plus the flu vaccine works just as well on
someone in space as it does for someone on earth, which is a relief. Then we’ve got the medium-risk stuff, stuff
we may need to be careful about. Urine sample metabolites indicated that spaceflight
could interrupt collagen regulation in the body. While we may most often hear about collagen
in the context of our skin, it’s also part of all our veins and arteries and valves,
and disturbance in its production and incorporation could result in issues like blood pooling
at the bottom of our legs or issues with blood pressure regulation. And don’t even get me started on the telomeres—these
are the caps on the end of your chromosomes that protect your DNA from damage and that
deteriorate as we age. Scott Kelly’s telomeres actually lengthened
during his year on the ISS—but then shortened rapidly and significantly when he returned
to Earth. They’ve since recovered to around pre-spaceflight
length, but given the essential nature of telomeres in protecting genomic integrity
and the role we think they play in aging, further research into this aspect of space-induced
genetic changes could be really fruitful, not only for spaceflight, but for other areas
of science and medicine. And now for the high-risk stuff, the stuff
we really need to work on solutions for. A comprehensive suite of computerized tests
indicated that while some measures of cognitive function increased, especially early in the
mission, other cognitive functions—like emotion recognition and abstract matching
accuracy—actually declined during spaceflight, along with cognitive speed. And these declines persisted for about 6 months
after return to Earth. In a weightless environment, our veins and
arteries can also get a little…confused. Usually, they have to work with or against
Earth’s gravity to move blood around our body, but in microgravity, we see thickening
of vascular walls, an increase in vascular stiffness, and a ballooning effect in the
vasculature of the upper body. We’re actually still not sure if all of
this is reversible after an astronaut comes back to earth—that remains to be seen. We also confirmed observations made in many
other astronauts: spaceflight is associated with altered optical function. .We see swelling of the optical disc, a flattening
of the actual globe of the eye, along with other structural changes, which can lead to
onset of blurry vision, blind spots, and more. We haven’t been able to pinpoint what causes
these changes but they’re obviously not good for your eyesight, and may be permanent. And lastly, blood samples pre-, during, and
post- flight determined that spaceflight can significantly increase genotoxic stress. Space is highly radioactive, and while galactic
cosmic rays may sound awesome, they can really do a number on your DNA. Cytogenetic analysis, which means looking
at changes in your chromosomes, revealed higher levels of genomic instability for the spaceflight
twin. This comes in the form of increased chromosomal
translocations and inversions, which can be linked to disorders like infertility and cancer. Genetic analysis also revealed dysregulation
of genes, especially those associated with immune function and DNA repair, and these
changes did not return to normal when they got back to Earth. All this talk of DNA changing may make it
easy to ask the question, “Are they still twins?”. The answer is YES. Media outlets a while back went a little overboard
with the ‘news’ that 7% of Scott Kelly’s DNA was different. If 7% of Scott’s genes were completely different,
not only would he not be Mark’s twin anymore, he would be an entirely different species. The real way to think about it is that yes,
some genetic mutation occurred, but most of the change was epigenetic change. This means that something like DNA methylation,
or a little add-on unit to a gene, changed the expression of the gene, not the actual
makeup of the DNA itself. This can result in upregulation or downregulation
of the genes in charge of things like immune function and bone growth..So yeah. They’re still related. All of this data represents, as the researchers
put it, “a uniquely controlled and integrated framework for comprehensively quantifying
astronaut biology in space”. And opens up so many exciting questions that
are going to be fascinating to build on. Even though NASA doesn’t currently have
any more twins in the pipeline, this kind of research can continue with those who take
on longer and longer spaceflights. Building a better understanding of the effects
of long-term spaceflight on the body and the mind will prepare us to test even more spaceflight
boundaries that no human has ever broken before—while hopefully keeping us all in one piece. We’re working on a new series that we’re stoked
to share with you that’s all about what goes on in your body when you get sick. And it’s called…well…Sick. And here’s our sneak peak of our first episode Beyond treatments and symptoms, we’re curious
about how exactly viruses, parasites, and other invaders wreak havoc on our health. Is there a disease or illness you want us

Badge Logo Design | Adobe Illustrator Tutorial | Mountain

Badge Logo Design | Adobe Illustrator Tutorial | Mountain


Hey guys welcome back to another episode
of creatnprocess. Today we’ll be creating a logo badge inside illustrator. There are plenty of logo badges templates available on the web and if
you search for it, you find a variety of designs which are easily editable and
can be used directly for the business. so
our goal here is to create an exclusive logo badge, in the fastest and the
easiest way. And during the process I’ll
be using some vector resources from Vexels.com, where you can download in
several formats. Vexels also offer monthly subscriptions
starting at 9.99 with licenses for every download. You can also buy individual
licenses for a single graphic. so let’s begin with the designing process. So we’ll be
creating this logo badge for the mountain climbing event. So the first
thing we need to understand is the theme of the logo. And now I’ll go to Vexels and
look for the vectors related to our theme. let’s search for mountain and
let’s download this vector. I’ll be
needing one more vector of ribbon. So let’s look up for that and I think this one is good. Now we are ready to
design the logo. First add a dark background on the artboard using the
rectangle tool and lock it up using the keyboard shortcut command or ctrl + T. now
open the mountain vector which we have just downloaded and drag and drop it to
work area. Scale up the size and fill it up with white color. Now we’ll do some
modification with the vector, so using the pen tool draw out curves extending the path
of the vector and merge it with the design. Click and drag to give smooth curves and
also break the points to give pointed edges. By adding these details we are
giving an organic look to the design. The
smooth and curved region represent the shape of frozen ice. Next we’ll type out the text, for the logo. Type mountain and
scale up the size. Remove the Alphabet M and choose a proper font for the rest. Apply white stroke color with a stroke thickness around 2 points,
and change the font style to Agency FB. Now create a duplicate of the text and
type M alphabet. We will increase its size and place it somewhere in the middle. Also change the font style to bold to maintain the thickness of the fonts. Reduce the stroke thickness to 1 point, maintain equal distance between each
alphabet. Now create another duplicate and type out snow. For this change the font
style to regular and reduce its size. we’ll place it somewhere here on the top. next we’re going to be modifying the shape of the text, so select the text and
go to Object>Envelope distort>make with mesh. Set the rows and columns
to 2 by 2 and click OK. This will give us the anchor points to modify the shape. let’s place it around here. Now using the direct selection tool, select the right
side anchor points and drag it down. Now select the middle anchor points and drag
it out, then select the left anchor points and push it down. Now using the
handle tools try to maintain the curve flow. Select the handles and adjust the
direction. Now bring in this snow text. Apply mesh with the same values and the
anchor points and set the flow, according to our main text. Adjust the handles
properly to get the exact curve. Next we’ll bring in our next vector “ribbon”. Place it inside the Artboard and scale up the size. we will flip the direction
using the selection tool from one side, then ungroup it. Now delete the top
pieces. Then delete out this piece also. For this overlapping region, we will
extract it using the shape builder tool. Select all and click and drag to extract
the region. Now place the vector below the text. Do
some little tweaking with the anchor points, to make the corner round. Also let’s
apply color to the shapes. Select the shape and apply red color from the color
panel. Then select the second one and give
little darker shape to it. Now we’ll type out one more text, give it
a white font color and we’ll give Arial Black font style and under character
panel, increase the distance between each alphabets. Then go to object and Envelope
distort and make it mesh. Give the same values 2 by 2 rows and columns
and start modifying the shape according to the flow of the ribbon. uUse direct
selection tool to edit the anchor points. Adjust each handles to get a perfect
curve, parallel to the edge of the vectors. Also place it in the middle of
the design. Once you are set with a path, double click inside and select the text. Then increase the spacing. And place it back to its original position. Now we’re
going to be creating the outline of the logo. We will be using ellipse tool to create
this circular region. So draw the circle and apply only the stroke color. we’ll
set the stroke thickness to 4 points. Now create one more diplucate of the
circle, using the keyboard shortcut command or ctrl + C to copy and command
ctrl + F to paste in front, and increase its radius. Now select both the ellipse
and choose Scissor tool to delete out the unwanted curves. Give one cut here and
the other on the opposite side. Do the same for the second curve, then
delete out the extra pieces. Now we’ll draw the rest of the outline using the pen
tool, by following the overall shape of the design. Once you reach the arc curve, click
on the last anchor point to connect the path. Then continue drawing from the
other side and finish it at the starting point. This way we got a nice outline. Now
carefully adjust of the vertices, to do the final refinement. And Adjust handles to
give a proper spacing. Next draw the shape at the ends of the stroke to give
a round end. Fill this shape with a background color. Now select our outline shape and fill it up with dark blue color. tThen arrange it
at the back of all the elements. Now selecting the shape go to object>path>outline
stroke, this will convert it into fill object. Ungroup it and we got two
different shapes for background and stroke. select the other stroke and apply
the same option. Apply light blue color to both the strokes. You can use this
code to get the color. Give the same color to the snow texture also. Now we’ll
add some details to our Mountain vector. So first of all, select all the pieces and
combine it under Pathfinder. Than using pen tool start drawing out curve path. To
create a division, try to create a wavy curve in order to get a random look. Now
select the stroke and the shape and extract of the region using the shape
builder tool. Ungroup it to select individually and apply light blue color. And now lastly we’ll create this frozen ice effect for our design. The designing
process very simple. We will first create out the shape, using the pen tool. The
shape can be in any form. Try to get that feel in your design. Fill it up with white color and start tweaking the sheep using the Direct
selection tool. Next Create one more duplicate of the shape and fill it up
with a background color. Then arrange it to back of the shape and drag it down. This
shape will be used to give shadow. The
placement will decide, how much depth you want to give to your design. Then using the direct selection tool, adjust the anchor
points properly. Now we’ll add highlights to our design. Draw a curve like this. Draw under go for the other shape. nNow select the Cove and the shape and using
the Direct selection tool, click here and then here to extract out the region. Select
the extracted shape and apply light blue color and this will add a highlight
effect to the frozen Ice. we’ll be following the same steps and create all
the other two vectors with different volume and shape. Finally we have
completed designing a logo badge. To give
more details to our design. we can use
Photoshop to add more depth, highlights and glossiness. You can also add lens
flare effect and it will be make your design more standout. Finally our logo is ready. tThe designing process was very simple. By using the
ready-made graphic resources, we have saved up lots of our time. I hope you liked the techniques and enjoy this tutorial. To check out the various
graphic design bundles provided by Vexels you can just go and check out their
