Rainbow EucalyptusThe bark is smooth, but flaky as it sheds layers on various places at different times along the tree, revealing new colors and keeping up the appearance of a rainbow. As the newly exposed bark slowly ages, it changes from bright green to a darker green, then bluish to purplish, and then pink-orange. Finally, the color becomes a brownish maroon right before exfoliation occurs. Since this process is happening in different zones of the trunk and in different stages, simultaneously, the colors are varied and almost constantly changing. As a result, the tree will never have the same color pattern twice, making it like a work of living art.

These stats come from the Perry Preschool Project, possibly the most famous early intervention study which used a Randomised Controlled Trial to assess the impacts of a very high quality intervention with both children and parents from extremely deprived backgrounds. Whether the effects are so large on children from less deprived backgrounds is much less certain and that needs to be borne in mind. In particular when talking about govt policy (at state or federal/national level) it will be extremely hard to produce a programme that is of such high quality.
The big returns for Perry Preschool were in the areas of crime and justice, by hugely reducing offending and arrest rates (particularly of boys). Interestingly it didn’t just affect the children in the programme, but their younger siblings also had lower rates of arrest.
There is a lengthy Star Wars argument behind the readmore. You have been warned.
I’ve only just managed to watch the original trilogy of Star Wars films (only just as in I can’t really remember them and didn’t watch them in the right order, rather than very recently), so I don’t have much investment, but this is a very interesting take.
Sometimes I wish I could sit these actors down and buy them a beer and explain to them in firm but gentle tones that fangirls and fanboys are not as hysterical or ridiculous as they are so often played up to be.
I would tell them about this one artist who once designed a trueform…
Tumblr has shown me so many amazing creations thanks to fandom. From something as simple as an amusing gif to really astonishing cosplay. I have a newfound respect for fans who put their energies into these things.
