20 illustrations about society and its problems, which make you think
The problems of society are the very burning topic that people love to discuss and illustrate in their works by various artists. The fact is that people and their problems are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for many creators who are trying to reach out to society with their works and open their eyes to the things around them. So does the Swiss illustrator Stefan Schmitz, who takes frequently discussed and controversial topics and turns them into deep and thought-provoking illustrations.

Freeing the Mind
Every person who lives in society and has at least minimal contact with it must adhere to simple rules that allow others to understand that you are not an ill-mannered Australopithecus, but a reasonable person. However, some people completely ignore this, preferring to behave in the worst and ill-mannered way. They sit on groceries in the supermarket, park so others can't, and do other annoying things that get in the way of others.
It's hard to imagine how this could even occur to anyone.

Scientific progress shows that the boundaries between imagination and reality are blurred. Robots have ceased to be science fiction. Today they are indispensable assistants in many areas of activity. This article will look at what the most advanced robots can look like and what they can do.
It is easy to see why the most urgent need for humanoid-looking robots is now in Asia, mainly Japan and South Korea. The fact remains: development in this direction is most active there, and the public perceives with an explosion all the new items there - Japanese Aibo dogs, of which over 200 thousand have been sold worldwide, established mainly in Japan. The whole point may be in the specific perception of the world around us.
Smartest robots today and how they impress
Some researchers associate the phenomenon with the fact that the Japanese are interested in robots just as partners assistants and see their roots almost in the Japanese tradition of creating mechanical Karakuri dolls for tea ceremonies in the Edo dynasty (1600-1868). Maybe that's why in most cases, as a result of Japanese developments, we don't get an abstract mechanism of screws and pieces of iron, but rather an alloy of new technologies and design discoveries, whether we're talking about creating a complex humanoid robot, a stylized toy dog or even a simple vacuum cleaner.
Curiosity rover - the Gale crater researcher
It is the most advanced third-generation rover to date. NASA spent ten years and 2.5 billion dollars on its development to obtain a great researcher in the end. It is an independent chemical laboratory on wheels, the size of a small car that can research the crater. It was created specifically for the study of the Gale crater. Curiosity is stuffed with instruments and sensors that can do almost everything, from high-resolution photos to spectral analysis of solid ground rocks.
Geminoid DK - the humanoid robot
This is one of the most realistic humanoid robots. It was built by Hiroshi Ishiguro and his colleagues from Japan's Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International. The appearance of this robot is an exact copy of Professor Henrik Scharfe from Aalborg University. The Geminoid DK can be controlled remotely using advanced motion capture technology. It allows the machine to imitate facial expressions and accurately repeat movements.
Baxter - security robot
Baxter is no ordinary industrial robot, although it looks pretty standard. Such models can be found in almost all more or less modern machine-building enterprises. Its main feature is increased security and checking things to be ok. Ordinary industrial robots do not differ at all in this feature. If a person is unfortunate enough to fall under their mechanical pincer hands, everything can end sadly. But not with Baxter. In his "head," a camera makes sure that there are no foreign objects in the field of activity. If they come across, then the ultrasonic motors that control the grips of mechanical "hands" automatically release the "pliers".
Paul - the drawing master
Paul, perhaps, is the least like a robot in the usual sense. But what he does is fantastic. This is a real robot artist, consisting of only one mechanical hand holding a pencil or fountain pen. The drawing process is straightforward: a person sits down in front of a camera that scans his face, and then Paul's "hand" begins to draw a portrait. Moreover, the robot does not draw according to a template; each picture of even the same person turns unique. There is a specific style in his drawings.
Wild cat - the stable robot animal
The development of Boston Dynamics. This is a reconnaissance robot capable of moving over rough terrain and, in gallop mode, which can accelerate to 25.7 km / h. Yes, this robot can gallop. And stop abruptly and turn around. WildCat is incredibly stable.
S One - the best worker
Rescue robot from the Japanese company Schaft, which Google eventually bought (as well as Boston Dynamics). S-One is a small, stocky, highly stable, and robust robot. He can lift weights, wield a drill, easily cope with valves and doorknobs. Thanks to the particular latest developments, the robot's creators managed to achieve incredible speed and smoothness in completing the tasks.
Sub1 - Rubik's cube master
Two US software developers, Jay Flatland and Paul Rose created this robot. The robot consists of 6 stepper motors, four webcams, and a small number of publicly available parts. And his main task is to solve the Rubik's cube. And he does it, just think, in less than one second. Among people, the record for the fastest assembly of the Rubik's Cube now belongs to the American teenager Lucas Etter. In the fall of 2015, he solved the cube in 4.9 seconds. The Sub1 robot took only 0.887 seconds.
Row-bot - the best cleaner
This is the latest development of scientists from the University of Bristol. Row-bot is a prototype robot designed to move around the surface of polluted water bodies and eat microbes that make the water dirty. It is noteworthy that Row-bot uses the “eaten” microbes as biofuel to generate energy and continue to work.
M-2000iA/1700L - the strong buddy
The Japanese company FANUC has developed the most robust robot in the world. His name, of course, is not very harmonious, but the possibilities are awe-inspiring. A strongman robot with an arm span of 4.7 meters can lift objects weighing 1,700 kg. The previous most powerful robot on the planet, Titan, could manipulate objects weighing up to 1 ton, but its “arm” was also slightly longer - 6.5 meters.
Atlas - the snow runner
Boston Dynamics recently unveiled a new generation of its Atlas robot to the general public. B his abilities are simply unique. A bipedal humanoid robot quickly walks through a winter forest with challenging terrain. At the same time, he maintains balance even when his feet fall into the snow. But if it does fail, the robot can independently rise from almost any position.
Actroid DER2 (ho-ho, Dramatic Entertainment Robot) - the realistic girl
Developed by Kokoro Company (Sanrio Group), this actress (actress + android. Wow, a term from the newspeak of the future!) It has more refined hand movements and improved facial expressions than the 2005 model. Facial expressions are pneumatically controlled.
This model can already be programmed to choreograph the movements of the legs and arms to transmit gestures synchronized with the voice. Amazingly accurate transmission of facial expressions and natural skin tones, Actroid DER, is called silicone coating, corresponding to a soft and silky voice. Kokoro rents Actroid DER2 for events to various companies, with a base rate of approximately $ 3,500 for five days, plus some minor royalties and maintenance fees.
Geminoid - professor's best friend
Regarding the development of facial expressions, Hiroshi Ishiguro, a professor at Osaka University and a developer of ATR Intelligent Robotics and Communication Laboratories, is perhaps the most distant. Its double is called Geminoid (Gemini in Latin is just "double, twin", and "-old" is the well-known suffix of the reflection of "similarity"). The robotics made as an exact copy of the teacher - the body with 46 degrees of freedom was copied by at Ishiguro and created by the Kokoro company - the one that produces "stars", and the shape of the skull is made after a volumetric scan of his head.
Moreover, the android Geminoid also inherited some of the ways of its "parent" twin. Leather material - soft silicone material. Geminoid is connected by a network of power cords and cannot get up from the chair alone. But given what has been achieved in a short time - it took only six months to develop the body and three months to build the software; we can say that the development prospects are very bright.
Robovie-R - moving friend
The third version of this robot costs about $ 41,000 or about 1.4 million rubles. It can communicate with other robots through a local network and is intended for use in museums and malls. Its height is 108 cm, and its weight is 35 kg.
All 17 degrees of freedom of the robot give it high mobility, interaction with users, and understanding of the environment. Due to the large flow of people that can move simultaneously in a small space, the Robovie-R mission becomes difficult but not impossible. A laser rangefinder has been integrated into the robot to determine the safest path to follow. The robot is sensitive to touch due to the 11 touch sensors integrated into its structure.

Cartoons have existed since the 19th century when various optical illusions obtained with the help of devices were very popular. The original, simple form was a toy for children, a notebook, the pages that could be quickly scrolled. On each page, slightly different figures were drawn from the previous page, and if the images were swiftly changed one after the other, they merged and seemed to move. Since then, this principle in creating cartoons has remained unchanged, but modern technologies have perfected this art.
When cinematography was taking its first steps, the animated film was already a popular genre, although it took a long time to make. For just one minute of animation, 1440 drawings had to be made!

Nothing human is alien, even to representatives of the royal families. And if, before the mass appearance of cameras, the ordinary life of monarchs was more of intricacies of myths, conjectures, and mysteries, then with the advent of photography, we got a previously absent chance to look behind the screen and find out how these same monarchs lived and how they behaved in ordinary life.
Photos where the Queen changes the wheel on the car and eats with his hands
One of the brightest representatives of this "life for the show" is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, better known as Elizabeth II. She was not embarrassed by the camera, so you can still find many photographs from infancy and old age on the Internet.

2. Walk with your nannies and stroller with your sister, Princess Margaret:

5. Posing with his dogs in a house in Piccadilly, London:
Queen Elizabeth II was a respected public figure, welcoming foreign officials to state dinners, opening parliament sessions, and watching her subjects smile from their banknotes.
His face appeared on Andy Warhol's tape paintings, on towels or cups, was honored by poets such as Simon Armitage, or mocked by singers such as the punk band Sex Pistols. The Queen seemed to be above criticism and public figures such as the Pope or the Dalai Lama. Even the most vocal critics of the monarchy said, "the Queen has done a good job, though."
How did he achieve this feat in his public image? According to Politico, Elisabeta managed to use the virtue of silence. Refusing to express her own opinion, the queen remained silent and enigmatic. Showing the public only a neutral and vague facade, while no one in the general public had access to the honest Elizabeth, she became the most successful sovereign of recent times.
Behind the symbol was a person. Born by cesarean section on April 21, 1926, Elizabeth was the first daughter of a prince who, although second in line, did not look like he would become king. Home Secretary William Joynson-Hicks was present at her birth, as custom dictates that such an official must ensure that the baby is not swapped, by a plot, for another.
Young Elizabeth grew up in the heart of London, in a 25-room palace with a ballroom and an enormous garden. Although in childhood photographs, she appears with her loving parents, Elizabeth and her sister Margaret were raised by an army of servants and teachers and rarely saw their parents. Her first word was not her mother but "Bobo," one of the nannies who raised her.

This was by his side all his life, and he never gave interviews. She was rewarded with a special status in Buckingham Palace for her fidelity. Other people who raised her were practically erased from the family's memory when they spoke to the media. The monarchy came first, before the person.
At 13, in 1939, the young Elisabeta met the man who would become her husband during a visit to Dartmouth Naval College. At 19, the Greek Philip was worldly, exotic, and raised in Paris in exile. He didn't get along with his family: three sisters were married to Nazis, the father threw the family's money into the casinos of Monte Carlo, and the mother had schizophrenia. The young princess fell in love with this rebel, who she said looked like a "Viking god."
We don't know much about their relationship. Elisabeta's mother was initially opposed to the relationship, but the two young people persevered and managed to get engaged in 1947. We can learn something about young Elisabeta's feelings in a rare letter to a friend. Page after page, she writes about how they went dancing together in nightclubs, how they were followed by a photographer - the words of a young woman whose heels were on.
Elizabeth's wedding to Philip in November 1947 was supposed to be a proper, austere party. Sugar in Britain was still rationed, and many British cities were littered with the rubble of houses destroyed in the bombings.
The country was still facing significant financial problems following the war. However, the wedding was an excuse for festivities that swept the country. Thousands of guests worldwide came to London to attend the wedding, including King Mihai.
Finally, a good party - an excuse for the people to forget, for a few moments, the torment of war and recession and put their hopes in a young and beautiful couple. Everything seemed to signal a new beginning, and the optimistic atmosphere grew in 1949 and 1951.
Then, at just 27, Elizabeth became queen after her father died. The years 1952-1953 seem to have brought, with these challenges, quite a lot of misunderstandings in the young couple's life. Philip felt useless and distanced himself from his wife as Elizabeth took control of the country.
Elisabeta became close to one of her childhood friends, Henry Herbert. The four children of the royal couple were raised by servants and sent to boarding schools. On a lucky day, they could see their parents for half an hour.

Like any royal event in the UK, the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II is subject to age-old traditions and royal code. Including the funeral was partially planned by the Queen herself, who, as you know, agreed in advance with civil servants on the scenario of farewell to her. The death of Elizabeth II stunned the whole world and chained millions of people to TV screens and monitors. But, despite the close attention to the funeral of the royal person, many things remained unnoticed by the public or not understood.
Facts about Queen Elizabeth II funeral
We at Bemorepanda want to tell you how the funeral went, showing you some of the details that you most likely didn't notice or missed.
1. Before the start of the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, the bell in Westminster Abbey began to ring 96 times - so many times one minute before the funeral began - meaning every year of her life.
2. Her coffin was draped with the Royal Standard, a flag representing the sovereign of Britain, the Crown Lands and the British Overseas Territories. The flag consists of three lions representing England, one lion representing Scotland and a harp representing Ireland.
Usually this flag was flown when the Queen was staying at one of her palaces or when she was on official business in her car or plane.
3. The crown on the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II was the Imperial State Crown, made for the coronation of her father, King George VI, in 1937.
4. The crown is made of gold, 2868 diamonds, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds, 269 pearls and 4 rubies.
According to CBS News, the pearl on the crown belonged to Queen Elizabeth I, which has "an incredible connection with the history of Britain."
5. Next to the crown, you can see the scepter and orb of the Sovereign, which symbolize the relationship of Queen Elizabeth II with God and power.
The scepter you see on the coffin of Elizabeth II has been used at every coronation since 1661.
6. A bouquet of flowers on the coffin of the queen was presented by King Charles III.
Among the flowers were garden roses and myrtle grown from Queen Elizabeth II's wedding bouquet, which was presented to her in 1947.
7. Inside the funeral bouquet there is a note from King Charles III.
It reads: "In memory of Charles R. with love and devotion." The "R" in Charles's signature means "Rex" ("Rex"), which in Latin means "king, lord, king." This is the traditional signature of the monarch, which dates back to the 12th century.
8. During the funeral procession, the family of Queen Elizabeth II followed her coffin as it moved through Westminster Abbey.
Notably, Prince George of Wales and Princess Charlotte of Wales were in attendance along with their parents, William, Prince of Wales and Catherine, Princess of Wales. This makes George and Charlotte the youngest members of the royal family to attend a state funeral in recent memory. Incidentally, neither of them attended Prince Philip's state funeral in April 2021.
9. If you look closely, you can see that Princess Charlotte has a small diamond horseshoe brooch that pays tribute to her great-grandmother's love for horses.
The brooch was presented to Charlotte by Queen Elizabeth II.
10. Catherine, Princess of Wales - Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge Catherine - wore a pearl necklace from the Queen's personal collection to the funeral.
Kate also wore the necklace to Prince Philip's funeral.
11. The same pearl necklace of Queen Elizabeth II was worn by Princess Diana in 1982 at a state banquet, which was held at Hampton Court Palace.
12. The Bahraini pearl earrings that Kate wore to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II were a gift to the Queen for her wedding in 1947.
This is not the first time Kate has worn these earrings.
13. Like Kate, Meghan Markle's jewelry at Queen Elizabeth II's funeral is also a big deal.
The diamond and pearl earrings Meghan wore to the funeral were a wedding gift from the Queen in 2018. Markle has worn these jewelry more than once.
14. Instead of a military uniform, Prince Harry put on a formal suit.
Prince Harry has refused public office as a member of the royal family and was therefore not allowed to wear a military uniform to a state funeral.
15. During the state memorial service, several hymns of great importance to Queen Elizabeth II were played.
One of them was Psalm 23, "My Shepherd of the Lord," which was sung at her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip married at Westminster Abbey, where the funeral service was held.
16. Toward the end of the memorial service, the bagpipes began to play.
The Queen's personal piper, Major Paul Burns, played the funeral song "Sleep, Dearie, Sleep".
Almost every morning in the palace, Queen Elizabeth II was woken up by the bagpipes, which began to play at 9:15, giving this moment a special significance. Paul Burns' bagpipe playing is a personal request of Queen Elizabeth II, who was planning her own funeral.
17. As the funeral procession passed Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II's official residence in London, more than 100 Palace employees stood outside and as the Queen's hearse passed, some people bowed and curtsied.
18. Near Windsor Castle, while waiting for the arrival of the funeral procession, journalists saw Queen Elizabeth II's favorite corgis, Muick and Sandy.
19. Her favorite pony also said goodbye to the queen.
20. After the funeral at Westminster Abbey, Queen Elizabeth II was taken to St George's Chapel, which is located in Windsor Castle, where her coffin was placed in the Royal Crypt.
It is the resting place of former British monarchs.
21. In St. George's Chapel, the Lord Chamberlain broke his staff.
The destruction of the wand symbolizes the end of the reign of the monarch and is the last act before the queen's coffin was placed in the Royal Crypt. The staff was buried with her. Also, the breaking of the staff symbolizes the end of the Lord Chamberlain's service to the late monarch.
22. By the way, this was the first time that the destruction of the staff was broadcast on television.
The last time this tradition of breaking the staff took place at the funeral of King George VI in 1952.
23. Much of the music played during the service at St George's Chapel was composed by Sir William Harris, who was the organist at the chapel where Queen Elizabeth II spent most of her childhood.
24. At the conclusion of the service in St. George's Chapel, the crown, orb and scepter were removed from the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II and placed on the altar. This symbolized the end of her reign.
25. The Royal Crypt is not the final resting place of Queen Elizabeth II.
After the funeral, the Queen will be moved to the King George VI Memorial Chapel, which she built in honor of her late father in 1962.
Queen Elizabeth II's final resting place will be among her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, her sister Princess Margaret, and her husband Prince Philip, who will also be moved to the Memorial Chapel.
26. In fact, after the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II was lowered into the Royal Crypt, this was the last time the public saw her coffin.
