“Fauxvist” Arcadia

You might remember James Barnett‘s “fauxvist” series of videogame landscapes, which I posted on Offworld last summer. He was also one of the very first Kickstarter projects and, because of certain internet community affiliations, I was an early supporter. Thanks in part to all of these things I had the option to have a specially commissioned painting from James. As I very much enjoyed the fauxvist landscapes, I went for more of that.

Examples of fungicides include hexachlorobenzene, organomercurials, pentachlorophenol, phthalimides, and dithiocarbamates. Do not use fungicides developed for outdoor use in any indoor application, as they can be extremely toxic to animals and humans in an enclosed environment. When you use biocides as a disinfectant or a pesticide, or as a fungicide, you should use appropriate PPE, including respirators. This section presents remediation guidelines for building materials that have or are likely to have mold growth. The guidelines are designed to protect the health of cleanup personnel and other workers during remediation. Urologic examinations usually do not reveal a specific etiology for urethritis. A four-glass Meares-Stamey lower-urinary-tract localization procedure (or four-glass test) might be helpful in localizing pathogens to the prostate ( 255). WBCs per high-power field were detected in expressed prostatic secretions ( 256). Referral to a urologist should be considered for men who experience pain for more than 3 months within a 6-month period. Gonococcal urethritis, chlamydial urethritis, and nongonococcal, nonchlamydial urethritis might facilitate HIV transmission. In short, artificial life is central to our attempts to understand who we are. A display of two outflow water clocks from the Ancient Agora Museum in Athens.

This ensures I remain in touch with the realities of frontline practice and helps me deliver my civil service role and retain clinical credibility. I remain an active researcher, teacher and lecturer on subjects such finasteride as falls and bone health, health services for older people, age discrimination and healthcare ethics and law. I am excited to see how increasingly healthcare is harnessing this astonishing potential for healing. I have always wondered how unhappiness gets into the cells, and why exercise, meditation and a healthy diet impact so powerfully on mood and morbidity..

Those identifying solely as American Indian or Alaska Native comprise less than 1 percent of the US population. Most American Indians live in western states, including California, Arizona, New Mexico, South Dakota, Alaska, and Montana, with 42 percent of this population residing in rural areas, compared to 23 percent of whites. For the purposes of this paper, the following terms will refer to this population: American Indian, Native people, and indigenous people. The number of American Indians living on reservations and trust lands (areas with boundaries established by treaty, statute, and executive or court order) has decreased tremendously in the past few decades.

I thought about what videogame vistas I liked and wanted to see recreated in this fashion (leaned towards Metroid Prime, to be honest) but it soon became apparent that I was going abroad and a painting wasn’t the most practical thing to bring with me, so it morphed into a thank you gift to my friend JP. The setting became obvious: Bioshock‘s Arcadia. I must have a thing for big, artificial environments being consumed by nature (see Metroid Prime) because that was my unbiased favourite area in Bioshock. I figured he’d appreciate it more anyway on account of, you know, his design work on that specific map. The painting arrived yesterday so I can finally post it:
