Last week, local teachers received quite the surprise when they were greeted with cheers, balloons and money to fund very special classroom projects.

By next week, more than $40,000 in Bright Ideas grants will enable teachers in Bryan, McIntosh and Liberty counties to bring their Bright Ideas to life.

Funding for Bright Ideas grants comes from members of the Coastal Electric Cooperative who round up their electricity bills to the next dollar through Operation Round Up. These nickels and dimes are pooled and reinvested in the community through the Coastal Electric Cooperative Foundation.

Since the Bright Ideas program was established in 2002, nearly $450,000 has been awarded to empower local teachers to put their creative teaching ideas into practice.

“These children are our future and our most precious resource,” said Chris Fettes, CEO of Coastal Electric Cooperative, who presented donations on behalf of the Foundation. “We are here to support the dedicated people who work hard every day to provide quality education and improve the quality of life for our students.

Bryan County Grant Summaries: With eight winners, Richmond Hill Middle School received the most Bright Ideas grants of any school this year. Below is a summary of each of their projects:

• Andrew Robertson’s $1,007.86 grant project, “The Effect of Color,” will allow students to research the effect of lighting of different colors on mood, mood, attention and creativity. Students will use nature-inspired LED lighting and light blankets to make spaces more inviting and conducive to learning, while also learning how to wire and install lighting.

• Lisa Tuttle’s $1,940.50 grant project, ‘Exploring Energy Alternatives’, will allow students to investigate the use of alternative energy sources to power neighborhoods and then build a model of their community. They will learn about renewable energies, sustainability and their benefits for the planet.

• As part of Mary Bowden’s $1,999.16 grant project, ‘Live to Give through Math’, students will work in groups to determine how a problem facing our community could be solved through 3D printing . Students will use their math skills regarding fractions, unit conversions, scale factors, ratios, measurements, and more. to create, design and 3D print their solutions.

• Robert Hodgdon’s $1,340.00 grant project, “Technology and Applications of Precision Horticulture”, will provide the necessary equipment to enable students to collect data on soil and crop health, which will which will result in higher crop yields, more efficient water use and less fertilizer runoff. , which is one of the main sources of environmental degradation in many rivers.

• As part of Tammy Luke’s $1,934.03 grant project, “Designed to Sew, Print and Learn”, students will research science topics such as biology, ocean research, Mesozoic creatures and chemistry, then express their discoveries through artistic expression, namely embroidery on fabric, painting and animation.

• For Tracy Thompson’s $1,974.66 grant project, “Teacher,” students will build and program a hexapod robotic spider so they can learn fundamental skills in engineering, design, and programming. They will interpret code results in real time, as the robots will mimic real organisms while making connections to their real-world use to help humans.

• Dennis Moore’s $1,690.00 grant project, “Sustainable Sources of Energy,” focuses on the use of renewable energy and will give students hands-on, real-world opportunities to see how it works and how it can to be used. Students will use a mobile solar electric generator for various functions, such as energizing pumps that circulate the water/fertilizer mixture through the school’s hydroponic systems and power the electric vehicles that students will build.

• Dustin Barnwell’s $1,645 grant project, “Etching the Earth,” will provide students with small, app-controlled laser cutters to create and design logos, artwork, and more for a project entrepreneur in their social studies class.

All that glitters isn’t gold, but apparently all that pink is now Barbiecore.

Ok, maybe not everything it’s pink, but the latest trend in fashion and design is a strong argument. Fuchsia sofas, blush poufs and pink rugs are all over the internet. Actress Anne Hathaway practically broke it after stepping out in a hot pink sequin dress and platform shoes.

That’s because Barbiecore revolves around, you guessed it, the iconic Mattel doll that has long peddled that particular shade. Let them be fueled by behind-the-scenes photos of actor Ryan Gosling and actress Margot Robbie – dressed in the Jazzercise Nines for director Greta Gerwig’s 2023 film Barbie or the fact that every trend seems to be coming back (looking at you, overalls), Barbiecore comes to life in plastic and makes it fantastic for adults and kids alike.

What is Barbiecore?

Barbiecore is about “having fun with design,” says Los Angeles-based designer known as Dani Dazey, whose self-proclaimed “human-sized dollhouses” have garnered tons of fans on social media. The trend is “returning to a time when we were less afraid to make bold decisions and embrace things that make us happy, despite what other people think,” Dazey continues. “It doesn’t have to be totally juvenile either. There are many ways to elevate the Barbiecore aesthetic.

For inspiration, look no further than Dazey’s approach to the recently opened Trixie Motel in Palm Springs. Full of playful pink spaces, the hotel — named after co-owner Brian Firkus’ drag character Trixie Mattel — is filled with candy-colored decor that oozes a sense of whimsy. (You can see how the team transformed the entire property on Discovery+.)

Interested in trying out a few pieces in your own home? There are plenty of options to choose from. The team at Los Angeles furniture company Joybird, for example, recently launched limited-edition pieces of furniture that bring the Barbie Dreamhouse to life. The collection includes a range of nostalgia-inspired beds, dressers, chairs and more that offer playful yet elegant color choices, often with curvilinear shapes. A speckled marble dining table is accented with a gold frame. A low sofa rests on gold covered legs.

The Joybird x Barbie furniture collection includes pieces like the Dreamhouse Chelsea sofa.

“For us interior lovers, this year marks the 60th anniversary of the Barbie Dreamhouse,” Gifty Walker, Joybird’s director of merchandising, said in a statement provided. “The Barbie x Joybird partnership is truly a life-changing moment for our team, as many of us have discovered and developed our personal and creative styles while playing with our very own Barbie Dreamhouses. It’s also a reminder to continue expressing our unique style, whatever our age!

“Barbie style can be easily added to your space in a variety of ways,” says Walker.

Like those featured in the Joybird collection, jewel-toned fabrics are a way “to add a pop of color to a more neutral space or layer the bold in a more maximalist space,” according to Walker. Other glamor-inspired features are “luxe marble” and “golden accents,” says Walker.

Dazey likes to incorporate accent walls that feature playful prints or colors. They are the “perfect backdrop” for a very particular type of sofa: “Nothing makes my heart beat like a beautiful pink velvet sofa”, explains the designer, who also offers a clothing line with colorful prints.

“Along with the fact that Barbie is so present in our culture right now, from fashion to movies, I think there’s a sense of escapism, nostalgia and joy in the Barbie aesthetic that we all have. really need it right now,” Natalie Ebel, co-founder of Backdrop, said in a statement provided.

Ebel also notes that Barbie, along with the doll’s range of career moments, “has also evolved over the years and there’s a new spirit of inclusivity and the evolution of the brand that’s been amazing to watch.”

MAL LOGAN, AC June 3, 1931 – September 17, 2022

Professor Mal Logan was a transformative figure in higher education in Australia with a profound legacy. As Vice-Chancellor of Monash University from 1987 to 1996 and as an internationally distinguished scholar in geography and public policy, he made an extraordinary contribution.

At Monash, his belief that Australia’s future lay in Asia led to the internationalization of the university – both by opening offshore campuses in Malaysia, India, China and Indonesia and by expanding the composition of its student body. His commitment to giving everyone a better chance of accessing higher education is a gift he gave to thousands of people. Many of them, like him, were the first in their families to go to university.

Professor Mal Logan.

His life was made up of great ideas, people, different landscapes and international relations. But it didn’t start that way, which made everything that followed all the more remarkable. He was born in the small town of Inverell and spent his early years in Bunnan, halfway between Scone and Merriwa in NSW’s upper Hunter Valley.

Her father, Alexander, was a teacher in the one-teacher school that Mal attended. As he wrote in a memoir, most of his family had “practically no skill, no money, and being good Presbyterians, were content to serve their lives as herdsmen, shed shearers, trimmers , fence repairers and everything else on offer vast surrounding properties that wealthy individuals or corporations had carved out of the land”.

The land, however, made a deep impression on Mal. He remembers being inspired by a geography teacher at Tamworth High School who drew maps spanning the entire blackboard showing in bright colors the distribution patterns of corn and cotton, telling a story that would otherwise take many pages to tell. . He later said that these maps reminded him of Aboriginal art in their shapes, patterns, and subtle stories.

From Tamworth he won a teacher’s scholarship to New England University College just outside Armidale, then a college of the University of Sydney. Hid did his Honors year in Geography at the University of Sydney, then completed a one-year Diploma in Education at Sydney Teachers’ College. It was there that he met his future wife, Toni.

His first teaching job was at Forbes Intermediate High School, from where he moved to Armidale; then to a post of lecturer in geography at the Sydney Teachers’ College; followed by a full professorship at the University of Sydney.

After 10 years, feeling the need for a change from 1960s Australia, he and Toni moved to the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where the geography department had been ranked as one of the best in North America. After spending part of a sabbatical year in Wisconsin, he then received an offer of tenure-track associate professorship. It was here in Madison that their daughter Kate was born.

SIOUX FALLS, SD — It’s hard to talk to Joe Kirby for long without the conversation turning to government.

Specifically, the idea that the way things are structured in South Dakota doesn’t always work for the state’s largest city.

Joe, as many will recall, was one of the architects of Sioux Falls’ push to embrace the interior system in the early 1990s, which led to the overhaul of city government. Our current strong mayor system with a part-time city council is the product of this change which began in 1994.

One can quibble about the effectiveness of our current local government, but overall most would agree that the change was good. The old city commission, in which five separate elected members oversaw specific areas of government operations, from public safety to public works, was ill-prepared for the complexities of growth that were already upon us.

It’s hard to predict exactly how this would work today, but it’s not hard to envision a rather chaotic environment, a sort of federation of individual fiefdoms.

The Kirby Dog Park in downtown Sioux Falls.

City of Sioux Falls

The Kirbys are a Sioux Falls legacy family that has been around since the state’s earliest days. They built a financial empire in the surety business before selling the business in 1992.

Today, you see the family name attached to features at the Washington Pavilion, Avera McKennan Hospital, Levitt at the Falls, and the Downtown Dog Park, among other philanthropic works.

Which just suggests they have the means and the connections to influence change.

Joe Kirby.jpg

I met Joe recently at a rooftop event at Railyard Flats, one of those rehab projects that have converted old industrial buildings into upscale lofts and retail in downtown East Bank.

As noted above, our conversation quickly turned to the philosophy of local government.

It wasn’t completely by chance.

Joe recently started a blog where he posts comments on the state of affairs and what changes he thinks would be beneficial. You can read his ideas at SiouxFallsJoe.com.

I told him that I had read and enjoyed his messages.

A recent article touched on the notion of how Minnehaha and Lincoln counties would be better served by adopting a self-government charter, similar to what the city did three decades ago. The upside, says Joe, is that you could eliminate a range of elective jobs that are essentially administrative in nature – such as auditor, treasurer and registry of deeds – and hire competent staff.

Despite the details of this plan, it led us to discuss the idea of ​​a metropolitan government for Sioux Falls.

It’s an intriguing idea as the city continues to grow. One ring to rule them all, to use an expression from JRR Tolkien.

Consider all the different levels of government and authority in the four counties that make up the Sioux Falls metropolitan area. It’s a bit overwhelming and probably not as responsive to the needs of the over 300,000 people who live here as we’d like.

Just inside the city limits of Sioux Falls, there are seven separate school districts.

There are four sheriffs in the subway.

Twenty county commissioners.

And who knows how many dog ​​catchers. (Probably not that much but it’s interesting to think about and funnier than the listener.)

It’s also a huge undertaking.

In the coming months, I plan to explore some of the possibilities for operation in Sioux Falls.

If you have any thoughts on the idea, drop me a note.

I suspect we’ll hear more from Joe Kirby as well.

Halloween is one of the most fun holidays on the calendar. Whether you’re dressing up for a trick or treat or digging into Barmbrack while telling ghost stories, this is a special night to be enjoyed by all ages.

However, the scariest thing about this spooky celebration shouldn’t be the leftover trash, which is why we’re sharing some eco-friendly tips ahead of All Hallows Eve.

1. Durable Suits

Instead of buying a plastic costume that will inevitably end up in the trash, why not make your own Halloween costumes from household items?

Alternatively, you can find pre-loved costumes from friends and family or contact local groups (School Costume Swap/Freecycle Facebook groups/Adverts.ie). If you have something specific in mind, visit your local charity shop or sites like Thriftify.ie.

You could even wear all black and make your makeup the highlight of your costume by becoming a witch cat or a creepy skeleton. Jiminy.ie (Ireland’s eco-toy store) offers a range of child-safe and eco-friendly mascaras, face paints and nail polishes.

2. Eco-Friendly Treats

Avoid all those chocolate, crisp and candy wrappers this year. Instead, why not buy a large jar of candy, chips or chocolate and dispense the treats in biodegradable brown paper bags rather than the plastic alternative. Not only is it good for the planet, but also for your pocket, as it will be cheaper than buying multiple multipacks.

3. Eat your pumpkin

Instead of carving your pumpkin, you can decorate it with decorations, draw on windows, glue leaves or paper ghosts. Then, once you’ve taken your photos of your masterpiece, you can wash it and cook your pumpkin for a delicious curry, warming soup or tasty pie.

4. Sort your waste

With a large volume of trash, it can be tempting to throw it all in the black bin, but make an effort to slow down and recycle things properly.

Remember that everything in the recycling bin must be to clean, dry and ample. And soft plastics can now be recycled in Ireland.

5. Freeze leftovers

If your kids have come home with enough treats to send them into sweet comas, consider melting down some of their stash to create freezer treats to enjoy in the months to come.

Rachel Allen’s Chocolate Nut Clusters recipe might be just what you need.

Will fall in full swing and the leaves will start to change, it’s the perfect time to get out and photograph the change of seasons! Autumn offers great opportunities for all types of photographers to capture the landscape in their photographs. Here are 15 creative photography ideas for the fall season:

People

Playing with the leaves – Tossing leaves in the air is sure to bring a smile to the stage, no matter what age. This is especially a great idea for young children, as you can create a fun environment that will not only capture a smile, but also bring in some fall scenery.

Halloween Costumes – This one goes without saying. If you have kids or have friends with kids, capturing their Halloween costumes is a must. But have a little fun with it. Go outside or into a dark room and turn it on with a single flash and a softbox, low power. It will create that spooky look that Halloween is known for and make the kid really cool in the process. And if you don’t have kids, try it with your pet, or even yourself (with your camera’s self-timer function and a tripod).

Family photos in the woods – Find a forest and take your family there for some photos. Take advantage of Golden Hour and the colors the fall season brings – it’s an easy way to fill the frame with something that adds a great background to your family. Be sure to dress your family in colors that will also pop with the colors of fall.

Visit a pumpkin patch or apple orchard – Going pumpkin picking or apple shopping is a great way to capture your family or friends having fun with the fall season. If you have kids, having them try to carry a big heavy pumpkin will create big laughs that you can capture too. And if you prefer posed photos, a pumpkin patch or apple orchard is a great backdrop for fall-centric family photos.

Focus on the details – While it’s fun to capture your kids playing in the leaves, you can also create extra interest by focusing on the details. Try to crop your photo so that the focal point is on the leaves, not your child playing with them. Or zoom in on her hands as they’re ready to toss the leaves in the air. It creates a dynamic scene that helps tell a story, and it’s great to pair with the more traditional portraits you’ve already captured.

Landscapes and nature

Mix fall colors with everyday scenes – Take the photo of the covered bridge above, for example. By taking wide shots, I was able to capture the bridge, the sky, and the nature around it. While waiting for early November when the leaves fell, I was able to capture a long exposure of the leaves swirling in the water, with the focal point still on the deck.

Highlight colorful trees with wide-angle photographs – Being from Michigan, there’s nothing like taking a day trip to experience the local flavor. By taking wide shots, you can shoot a canopy of trees above a road or trail, perfectly capturing the fall season.

Bokeh and Macro Leaves – One of the very first autumn photographs I took was of some leaves in my garden. They were a bright red color, so I got as close as I could and shot them wide, creating a very surreal scene that brought out the fall colors. Or, using a macro lens, you can create a larger than life photograph of a leaf and its textures.

Capture the Golden Hour – Golden Hour is a great time to capture landscapes regardless of the time of year, but in the fall it mostly makes the scene shine with the fall colors.

Mix interesting light with leaves – Play around with a flashlight or other small light source and mix it with a few leaves in a dark space. This will create a moody shot that will still highlight the season, but with a slightly different feel. You could even try having your child hold a leaf and shine a light on it, illuminating both the leaf and parts of their face.

Weddings and engagements

Warming up – Have your subjects stand close together, donning a scarf or blanket that keeps them warm together.

Give equal parts to autumn elements – By shooting your subjects wider than you usually would, you can include fall elements. For example, try splitting your photo in half. For the bottom half, capture your subjects from their torso up. On the top half, focus on capturing an autumn element, like a tree with colorful leaves on it. This creates a balance in photography.

Sit on steps covered with leaves – If you can find steps with leaves on them, shoot with a shallow depth of field to focus on the subjects, with the leaves fading behind.

Surround the details with autumnal colors – Ask your bride to put her hand next to a leaf to show off her ring and make sure there are fall colors present.

Dance in the leaves – Warm up the couple for their first dance by having them dance through the leaves. For added effect, throw a few leaves in the air and photograph them falling to the ground.

Try to crop your photo so that the focal point is on the leaves, not your child playing with them. Or zoom in on her hands as they’re ready to toss the leaves in the air. It creates a dynamic scene that helps tell a story, and it’s great to pair with the more traditional portraits you’ve already captured.

Landscapes and nature

Mix fall colors with everyday scenes – Take the photo of the covered bridge above, for example. By taking wide shots, I was able to capture the bridge, the sky, and the nature around it. While waiting for early November when the leaves fell, I was able to capture a long exposure of the leaves swirling in the water, with the focal point still on the deck.

Highlight colorful trees with wide-angle photographs – Being from Michigan, there’s nothing like taking a day trip to experience the local flavor. By taking wide shots, you can shoot a canopy of trees above a road or trail, perfectly capturing the fall season.

Bokeh and Macro Leaves – One of the very first autumn photographs I took was of some leaves in my garden. They were a bright red color, so I got as close as I could and shot them wide, creating a very surreal scene that brought out the fall colors. Or, using a macro lens, you can create a larger than life photograph of a leaf and its textures.

Capture the Golden Hour – Golden Hour is a great time to capture landscapes regardless of the time of year, but in the fall it mostly makes the scene shine with the fall colors.

Mix interesting light with leaves – Play around with a flashlight or other small light source and mix it with a few leaves in a dark space. This will create a moody shot that will still highlight the season, but with a slightly different feel. You could even try having your child hold a leaf and shine a light on it, illuminating both the leaf and parts of their face.

Weddings and engagements

Warming up – Have your subjects stand close together, donning a scarf or blanket that keeps them warm together.

Give equal parts to autumn elements – By shooting your subjects wider than you usually would, you can include fall elements. For example, try splitting your photo in half. For the bottom half, capture your subjects from their torso up. On the top half, focus on capturing an autumn element, like a tree with colorful leaves on it. This creates a balance in photography.

Sit on steps covered with leaves – If you can find steps with leaves on them, shoot with a shallow depth of field to focus on the subjects, with the leaves fading behind.

Surround the details with autumnal colors – Ask your bride to put her hand next to a leaf to show off her ring and make sure there are fall colors present.

Dance in the leaves – Warm up the couple for their first dance by having them dance through the leaves. For added effect, throw a few leaves in the air and photograph them falling to the ground.

Ali Clarke: Outdated Ideas Putting the “Raw” in the Grocery https://poterefotografico.com/ali-clarke-outdated-ideas-putting-the-raw-in-the-grocery/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 02:32:41 +0000 https://poterefotografico.com/ali-clarke-outdated-ideas-putting-the-raw-in-the-grocery/ A simple change could make a huge difference to the shocking amount of food Australians waste each year, claims Ali Clark.

A simple change could make a huge difference to the shocking amount of food Australians waste each year, claims Ali Clark.

If I close my eyes, I can see it perfectly. One hand resting on the refrigerator door to keep it from bouncing off her hip, the other fumbling around, looking for something to serve for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

I know what will follow.

The lifting of the package, the search for the tiny black imprint and then the inevitable sniffle. Sniff, sniff, sniffffffff.

You see, my father has olfactory abilities that would make truffle dogs cry. Meals from my childhood were usually preceded by that strong nasal hold, the look back at the best-before or best-before date and the inevitable words, “Smells good.” She will be right.

Then the dollop of the questionable cream, yoghurt or cheese would be accompanied by a lecture that these dates on the containers “mean nothing bloody” and “eat” because “there are people in the world who would like that “.

I wish I could say the resulting meal was gobbled up on its merits, but even now I remember the worried delicacy associated with ignoring an instruction on the packet – the hunch that I might eat something which would leave an unfortunate flavor.

Today I get it, and in the ultimate example of “makes you feel good” I now find myself having the same argument with my kids.

“Don’t be silly, it’s just a best-before date,” I say, wondering why they’re so loyal to ambiguous and hard-to-read food labeling rules, but absolute anarchists. when prescribed screen time is involved.

Now imagine my joy (and my dad’s) that some UK supermarkets have decided to abandon the ‘best before’ labeling system.

Imagine throwing away about one in five shopping bags.

For those who aren’t there, best before dates are all about food safety, while “best before” is more about product performance: ie; whether or not it will have the quality of taste/experience you are shelling out your hard-earned for.

While the UK is moving away from such prescriptive labeling seems to have started in 2018, it has only really gained popularity this year. Last month or so, a wave of stores signed on to the changes.

Not so much here.

While food labeling has been much discussed in Australia, we have focused more on country of origin declarations than the idea of ​​food waste caused by labels.

According to our largest charity hunger relief food bank, we waste approximately 7.6 million tons of food per year, the majority of which is edible.

It costs the economy $36.6 billion a year, and if you break that down, it’s between $2,000 and $2,500 per household every year.

Raise your hand if you think cash might come in handy the next time a bill comes?

If you don’t think about numbers, consider throwing away about one in five shopping bags.

This puts the crude in the grocery store.

The Australian government has pledged to halve our country’s food waste by 2030, while Aldi and Woolies aim to send zero waste to landfill five years earlier.

Although food waste happens all along the supply chain, we need public opinion to push for it, but given that a recent Canadian study showed overwhelming opposition to the removal of expiry dates, it may not be as simple as following in the footsteps of British gastronomy.

I can also imagine there will be resistance from some manufacturers and retailers who are looking for the turnover. Then there’s the broader consideration of low-income consumers who live off items that are pushed into the “reduced for quick sale” section because that turnover would slow down dramatically.

If we are serious about food waste, all of these considerations, while valid, should be set aside.

Our stricter food laws might not allow something as simple as the sniff test to the abroad and my dad, but when it’s the psychology of a few little black numbers that’s really holding us back, surely we can make changes that would see our environment win by a nose.

MrBeast Claims Copycat YouTubers Are “Getting Out of Control” Stealing His Ideas https://poterefotografico.com/mrbeast-claims-copycat-youtubers-are-getting-out-of-control-stealing-his-ideas/ Mon, 19 Sep 2022 12:52:40 +0000 https://poterefotografico.com/mrbeast-claims-copycat-youtubers-are-getting-out-of-control-stealing-his-ideas/ MrBeast calls friends in a YouTube video YouTube star Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson called out other YouTubers who copied his content to get views.

YouTube star Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson called out other YouTubers who copied his content to get views.

MrBeast has enjoyed huge success on YouTube in 2021 and 2022. Having reached the milestone of 100 million subscribers, he has also broken records with his mind-blowing content, one of his most memorable being his recreation Squid Game IRL.

It’s no surprise, then, that various YouTubers also wanted to get a taste of the action in hopes of getting half of the success that MrBeast achieved.

However, various creators took the opportunity to completely copy MrBeast’s content, which became increasingly frustrating for the 24-year-old.

MrBeast calls on creators to stop copying his content

On September 18, MrBeast shared his response after a fan Louis-Philippe Papineau expressed their displeasure that more and more YouTubers are copying MrBeast’s content formula.

“I’m so tired of MrBeast impersonators,” they tweeted. “We’ve all been there, we’ve all [tried] this. But now it’s time to move on […] Keep in mind that it is perfectly acceptable to copy others when we start out, this is how we create our own identity.

MrBeast agreed to add that the situation was starting to spiral “out of control”, even for him.

Well-known for his various good deeds, MrBeast has given several up-and-coming YouTubers a helping hand by sharing tips to help their popularity grow. But many have gone ahead and copied his style in order to attract viewers, which is causing growing concern among YouTube creators like TommyInnit.

A famous MrBeast copycat incident in 2019 involved fellow YouTuber Morgz as the two got into a long-running feud over who was stealing whose content.

MrBeast certainly doesn’t struggle to hit viewer count every time he posts a new video. However, given the time and amount of money he spends creating them, it is undoubtedly frustrating to see other designers copying his signature style.
