Nemean lion – Wikipedia02.04.19

The Nemean lion (; Greek: [1] Nemos ln; Latin: Leo Nemeaeus) was a vicious monster in Greek mythology that lived at Nemea. It was eventually killed by Heracles. It could not be killed with mortals’ weapons because its golden fur was impervious to attack. Its claws were sharper than mortals’ swords and could cut through any armor.

Today, lions are not part of the Greek fauna. The Asiatic lion subspecies formerly ranged in southeastern Europe. According to Herodotus, lion populations were extant in Ancient Greece, until around 100 BC when they became extinct.[2]

The lion is usually considered to have been the offspring of Typhon[3] (or Orthrus)[4] and Echidna; it is also said to have fallen from the moon as the offspring of Zeus and Selene, or alternatively born of the Chimera. The Nemean lion was sent to Nemea in the Peloponnesus to terrorize the city.

The first of Heracles’ twelve labours, set by King Eurystheus (his cousin), was to slay the Nemean lion.

Heracles wandered the area until he came to the town of Cleonae. There he met a boy who said that if Heracles slew the Nemean lion and returned alive within 30 days, the town would sacrifice a lion to Zeus; but if he did not return within 30 days or he died, the boy would sacrifice himself to Zeus.[3] Another version claims that he met Molorchos, a shepherd who had lost his son to the lion, saying that if he came back within 30 days, a ram would be sacrificed to Zeus. If he did not return within 30 days, it would be sacrificed to the dead Heracles as a mourning offering.

While searching for the lion, Heracles fetched some arrows to use against it, not knowing that its golden fur was impenetrable; when he found the lion and shot at it with his bow, he discovered the fur’s protective property when the arrow bounced harmlessly off the creature’s thigh. After some time, Heracles made the lion return to his cave. The cave had two entrances, one of which Heracles blocked; he then entered the other. In those dark and close quarters, Heracles stunned the beast with his club. During the fight the lion bit off one of his fingers. He shot arrows at it, eventually shooting it in the unarmoured mouth.

After slaying the lion, he tried to skin it with a knife from his belt, but failed. He then tried sharpening the knife with a stone and even tried with the stone itself. Finally, Athena, noticing the hero’s plight, told Heracles to use one of the lion’s own claws to skin the pelt.

When he returned on the thirtieth day carrying the carcass of the lion on his shoulders, King Eurystheus was amazed and terrified. Eurystheus forbade him ever again to enter the city; in the future he was to display the fruits of his labours outside the city gates. Eurystheus warned him that the tasks set for him would become increasingly difficult. He then sent Heracles off to complete his next quest, which was to destroy the Lernaean hydra.

The Nemean lion’s coat was impervious to the elements and all but the most powerful weapons. Others say that Heracles’ armour was, in fact, the hide of the lion of Cithaeron.

According to some authors, Heracles was helped in this labour by an Earth-born serpent, which followed him to Thebes and settled down in Aulis. It was later identified as the water snake which devoured the sparrows and was turned into stone in the prophecy about the Trojan War.[5]

Melanoma Causes, Types, Symptoms & Treatment02.04.19

Melanoma Symptoms and Signs

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that forms in pigment-forming cells (melanocytes). (A mole, or melanocytic nevus, is a benign tumor of these pigment-forming cells.) Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer. Rarely, melanomas can be found in other areas of the body that contain pigment-forming cells, including the eye, the tissues around the brain and spinal cord, or the digestive tract. Melanomas of the skin produce changes in the appearance of the skin, but these changes can sometimes be seen with other skin conditions. The characteristic symptoms include a change in an existing mole or new mole with asymmetric borders, uneven coloring, increasing size, scaling, or itching. Melanomas are typically not painful. It is always important to seek medical advice when you develop a new pigmented spot on the skin or have a mole that is growing or changing.

What is melanoma?

Melanoma is a cancer that develops in melanocytes, the pigment cells present in the skin. It can be more serious than the other forms of skin cancer because of a tendency to spread to other parts of the body (metastasize) and cause serious illness and death. About 50,000 new cases of melanoma are diagnosed in the United States every year.

Because most melanomas occur on the skin where they can be seen, patients or their spouses are often the first to detect suspicious tumors. Early detection and diagnosis are crucial. Caught early, most melanomas can be cured with relatively minor surgery.

This article is written from the standpoint of the patient. In other words, instead of describing the disease in exhaustive detail, the article focuses on answering the questions: “How do I know if I have melanoma?” and “Should I be checked for it?”

Guideline # 1: Nobody can conclusively diagnose him- or herself. If someone sees a spot that looks as though it is new or changing, he or she should show it to a doctor. When it comes to spots on the skin, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Everybody gets spots on their skin. The older we are, the more spots we have. Most of these spots are benign. That means they are neither cancerous nor on the way to becoming cancerous. These may include freckles, benign moles, collections of blood vessels called cherry angiomas, or raised, irregular, pigmented bumps on the skin called seborrheic keratoses.

Guideline # 2: The vast majority of moles (melanocytic nevi) stay as moles and do not turn into anything else. Most melanomas do not arise in preexisting moles. For that reason, having all of one’s moles removed to “prevent melanoma” does not make sense.

Some people are born with moles (the medical name is “nevus,” plural “nevi”). Almost everyone develops them, starting in childhood. On average, people have about 25 moles, though some have fewer and others many more. Moles may be flat or raised, and they may range in color from tan to light brown to black. Moles may lose their color and end up flesh colored. It is unusual to develop new pigmented moles after age 35.

What does melanoma look like? What are melanoma symptoms and signs?

Guideline # 3: A changing spot may be a problem, but not every change means cancer. A mole may appear and then get bigger or become raised but still be only a mole. It is normal for many moles to start flat and dark, become raised and dark, and then later lose much of their color. This process takes many years.

Most public-health information about melanoma stresses the so-called ABCDEs:

These guidelines are somewhat helpful, but the problem is that many normal moles and other benign lesions of the skin are not perfectly symmetrical in their shape or color. Many spots, which seem to have one or more of the ABCDEs, are in fact just ordinary moles and not melanomas. Additionally, some melanomas do not fit this description but may still be spotted by a primary care physician or dermatologist. Not all melanomas have color or are raised on the skin. Amelanotic melanomas have little or no color may be confused with traumatized benign nevi or basal cell carcinoma. Desmoplastic melanoma may appear to be a thickened area of skin like a scar. As a rule, melanoma is not painful unless traumatized. They sometimes itch, but this has no diagnostic or prognostic importance.

What if the skin changes are rapid or dramatic?

Guideline # 4: The more rapid and dramatic the change, the less serious the problem.

When changes such as pain, swelling, or even bleeding come on rapidly, within a day or two, they are likely to be caused by minor trauma, often a kind one doesn’t remember (like scratching the spot while sleeping). If a spot changes rapidly and then goes back to the way it was within a couple of weeks, or falls off altogether, it is not likely to represent anything serious. Nevertheless, this would be a good time to say once again: Nobody can diagnose him- or herself. If one sees a spot that looks as though it is new or changing, show it to a doctor. If one see a spot that doesn’t look like one’s other spots, it should be evaluated.

What are the causes and risk factors for melanoma?

Guideline # 5: Individual sunburns do raise one’s risk of melanoma. However, slow daily sun exposure, even without burning, may also substantially raise someone’s risk of skin cancer.

Factors that raise one’s risk for melanoma include the following:

The presence of close (first-degree) family with melanoma is a high risk factor, although looking at all cases of melanoma, only 10% of cases run in families.

Having a history of other sun-induced skin cancers, such as the much more common basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas, indirectly raises one’s risk of melanoma because they are markers of long-term sun exposure. The basic cell type is different, however, and a basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma cannot “turn into melanoma” or vice versa.

How can people estimate their level of risk for melanoma?

The best way to know one’s risk level is to have a dermatologist perform a full body examination. That way one will find out whether the spots one has are moles and, if so, whether they are abnormal in the medical sense.

The medical term for such moles is atypical. This is a somewhat confusing term, because among other things the criteria for defining it are not clear, and it’s not certain that an atypical mole is necessarily precancerous. Patients who have lots of “atypical moles” (more than 24) do have a higher risk for developing melanoma but not necessarily within one of their existing funny-looking moles. It may be a challenge to find the “baby melanoma” in the middle of a back full of large, dark, or irregular moles. If someone has such moles, a doctor will recommend regular surveillance and may recommend biopsy of the most unusual or worrisome looking moles.

Sometimes, one learns at a routine skin evaluation that one does not necessarily need annual routine checkups. In other situations, a doctor may recommend regular checks at 6-month or yearly intervals.

What are the types of melanoma?

The main types of melanoma are as follows:

There are also other rarer forms of melanoma that may occur, for example, under the nails (subungual), on the palms and soles (acral lentiginous), uveal or choroidal (ocular), oral or other mucosal areas such as the vulva or penis, or sometimes even inside the body such as the brain.

What tests do health care professionals use to diagnose melanoma?

Most doctors diagnose melanoma by examining the spot causing concern and doing a biopsy. A skin biopsy refers to removing all or part of the skin spot under local anesthesia and sending the specimen to a pathologist for analysis. A small shave or punch biopsy which may be adequate for the diagnosis of other types of skin cancer is not the best for melanoma. To diagnose melanoma, the best biopsy is one that removes the entire extent of the visible tumor. Fine-needle aspiration may have a role in evaluating a swollen lymph node or a liver nodule but is not appropriate for the initial diagnosis of a suspicious skin lesion.

It is no longer recommended to do large batteries of screening tests on patients with thin, uncomplicated melanoma excisions, but patients who have had thicker tumors diagnosed or who already have signs and symptoms of metastatic melanoma may be recommended to have MRIs, PET scans, CT scans, chest X-rays, or other X-rays of bones when there is a concern of metastasis, blood tests of liver, and any other studies that will assist in staging (determining the extent of spread of the tumor).

The biopsy report may show any of the following:

Some doctors are skilled in a clinical technique called epiluminescence microscopy (also called dermatoscopy or dermoscopy). They may use a variety of instruments to evaluate the pigment and blood vessel pattern of a mole without having to remove it. Sometimes the findings support the diagnosis of possible melanoma, and at other times, the findings are reassuring that the spot is nothing to worry about. The standard for a conclusive diagnosis, however, remains a pathologic examination of a skin biopsy.

What are melanoma treatment options?

In general, early localized melanoma is treated by surgery alone. Doctors have learned that surgery does not need to be as extensive as was thought years ago. When treating many early melanomas, for instance, surgeons only remove 1 centimeter (less than inch) of the normal tissue surrounding the melanoma. Deeper and more advanced cancers may need more extensive surgery.

Depending on various considerations (tumor thickness, body location, age, etc.), the removal of nearby lymph nodes may be recommended. For advanced disease, such as when the melanoma has spread to other parts of the body, treatments like immunotherapy or chemotherapy are sometimes recommended. Many of these treatments are still experimental and, for that reason, their use may be limited to patients willing to participate in a research study.

An Internet search will name a variety of home remedies and natural products for the treatment of skin cancers, including melanoma. These include the usual topical and systemic antioxidants and naturopathic immune stimulators. There is no scientific data supporting any of these, and their use may lead to unnecessary delay in better established treatments, possibly with tragic results.

How do doctors determine the staging and prognosis (outlook) of a melanoma?

The most useful criterion for determining prognosis is tumor thickness. Tumor thickness is measured in fractions of millimeters and is called the Breslow’s depth. The thinner the melanoma, the better the prognosis. Any spread to lymph nodes or other body locations dramatically worsens the prognosis. Thin melanomas, those measuring less than 0.8 millimeters, have excellent cure rates, generally with local surgery alone. For thicker melanomas, the prognosis is guarded.

Melanoma is staged according to thickness, ulceration, lymph node involvement, and the presence of distant metastasis. The staging of a cancer refers to the extent to which it has spread at the time of diagnosis, and staging is used to determine the appropriate treatment. Stages 1 and 2 are confined to the skin only and are treated with surgical removal with the size of margins of normal skin to be removed determined by the thickness of the melanoma. Stage 3 refers to a melanoma that has spread locally or through the usual lymphatic drainage. Stage 4 refers to distant metastases to other organs, generally by spread through the bloodstream.

What is recurrent melanoma?

Recurrent melanoma refers to a recurrence of tumor at the site of removal of a previous tumor, such as in, around, or under the surgical scar. It may also refer to the appearance of metastatic melanoma in other body sites such as skin, lymph nodes, brain, or liver after the initial tumor has already been treated. Recurrence is most likely to occur within the first five years, but new tumors felt to be recurrences may show up decades later. Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish recurrences from new primary tumors.

What is metastatic melanoma?

Metastatic melanoma is melanoma that has spread beyond its original site in the skin to distant tissue sites. There are several types of metastatic melanoma. There may be spread through the lymphatic system to local lymph nodes. This may show up as swollen lymph glands (usually painless) or as a string of skin tumors along a lymphatic chain. Melanoma may also spread through the bloodstream (hematogenous spread), where it may appear in one or more distant sites, such as the lungs, liver, brain, remote skin locations, or any other body location.

What are the signs of symptoms of metastatic melanoma?

Signs and symptoms depend upon the site of metastasis and the amount of tumor there. Metastases to the brain may first appear as headaches, unusual numbness in the arms and legs, or seizures. Spread to the liver may be first identified by abnormal blood tests of liver function long before the patient has jaundice, a swollen liver, or any other signs of liver failure. Spread to the kidneys may cause pain and blood in the urine. Spread to the lungs may cause shortness of breath, other trouble breathing, chest pain, and continued cough. Spread to bones may cause bone pain or broken bones called pathologic fractures. A very high tumor burden may lead to fatigue, weight loss, weakness and, in rare cases, the release of so much melanin into the circulation that the patient may develop brown or black urine and have their skin turn a diffuse slate-gray color. The appearance of multiple blue-gray nodules (hard bumps) in the skin of a melanoma patient may indicate widespread melanoma metastases to remote skin sites.

What are the treatments for metastatic melanoma?

Historically, metastatic and recurrent melanoma have been poorly responsive to chemotherapy. Immunotherapy, in which the body’s own immune system is energized to fight the tumor, has been a focus of research for decades. A variety of newer medications target different points in the pathways of melanoma cell growth and spread. While the most appropriate use of these medications is still being defined, the best treatment for melanoma remains complete surgical excision while it is still small, thin, and has not yet had a chance to spread.

Initial therapies to stimulate the immune system to help contain metastatic melanoma included infusions of interferon-alpha and interleukin-2 (both parts of the immune response to cancer and infection), and a few patients have responded to these therapies. There has, however, been an explosion recently in the approval of a number of targeted therapies that act on specific stages in the cell cycle, especially those of abnormal cells, and affect those growth processes of the tumor cells. Drugs that inhibit the kinase enzymes such as MEK, which is necessary for cell reproduction, include cobimetinib (Cotellic) and trametinib (Mekinist). Others target the signals for cell growth from abnormal BRAF genes and the enzymes they drive. Such medications in this family include dabrafenib (Tafinlar), vemurafenib (Zelboraf), and nivolumab (Opdivo). Pembrolizumab (Keytruda) blocks the tumor’s ability to inhibit T cell activity. Ipilimumab (Yervoy) works directly on the T-lymphocyte pathway to activate the immune system. Many of these medications are now being used in combination to get better therapeutic effects than they would by themselves. All of these medications have significant side effects, including some that are life-threatening, and are indicated only for stage 3 tumors to try to prevent recurrence and spread and stage 4 metastatic tumors that are no longer amenable to surgery.

What are the survival rates for metastatic melanoma?

Survival rates for melanoma, especially for metastatic melanoma, vary widely according to many factors, including the patient’s age, overall health, location of the tumor, particular findings on the examination of the biopsy, and of course the depth and stage of the tumor. Survival statistics are generally based on five-year survival rates rather than raw cure rates. Much of the success reported for the targeted therapies focuses on disease-free time because in many cases the actual five-year survival is not affected. It is hoped that combination therapy discussed above will change that.

What methods are available to help prevent melanoma?

What research is being done on melanoma?

Research in melanoma is headed in three directions: prevention, more precise diagnosis, and better treatment for advanced disease.

Where can people get more information about melanoma?

Tattoo Nightmares – Tattoo.com02.04.19

Im not one to evoke fear in people, but there are a few tattoo nightmare situations you should be cautious of if you are in the process of selecting a tattoo artist or a permanent design.

The following tattoo nightmares are real. They actually CAN happen.

Make sure you check the shop, ensure the safety of the place and the use of autoclaves and new needles, verify artist licensing and certificates, and then follow your professional tattoo artists aftercare instructions with due diligence. Should you find yourself in pain, or if you feel dizzy, sick, feverish, and have an oozing tattoo, seek immediate medical treatment.Skin infections can be life-threatening once they enter the bloodstream.

Do not pick such a highly sensitive area for your first tattoo. Instead, experience the joy of getting inked somewhere more tolerable the first time around. Good spots for a first tattoo include calves, upper arms, and upper thighs.

Its bad enough you cant get her outta your life. From now on, every girl you date will want to know who Lila is, and if youll get her name tattooed instead. (Youll be arguing about this every night.)Not good for the black book, my friends. Avoid name tattoos, unless youre going to love Lila, for like, ever. Or only date people named Lila.

Movies Featuring the Nmap Security Scanner02.03.19

For reasons unknown, Hollywood has decided that Nmap is thetool to show whenever hacking scenes are needed. At least it is a lotmore realistic than silly 3D animation approach used in many previousmovies (e.g. “hacking the Gibson” on Hackers, or the much worseportrayals on Swordfish). We always like to see Nmap in the movies,so we have catalogued known instances here.

If you catch Nmap in another flick,please mail Fyodor. Thefirst person to do so wins your choice of a signed copyof Nmap Network Scanning or a T-shirt of your choice from the Zero Day Clothing Nmap Store. You also get credit on this page when the movie is added!

Movie script writers, artists, and digital asset managers are alsowelcome to email Fyodor foradvice. We’ve been pleased to help out to make a number of movies slightly more realistic and entertaining by improving the hacking scenes.

This page only covers movies, we have a separate page coving news articles, reviews, books, and popular culture references.

While Nmap had been used in some previous obscure movies, it was The Matrix Reloaded (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon) which really turned Nmap into a movie star!

We have all seen many movies like Hackers which pass off ridiculous 3D animated eye-candy scenes as hacking. So Fyodor wasshocked to find that Trinity does it properly in The Matrix Reloaded.Needing to hack the city power grid, she whips out Nmap version2.54BETA25, usesit to find a vulnerable SSH server, and then proceeds to exploit itusing the SSH1CRC32 exploit from 2001. Shame on the city for being vulnerable (timing notes).

Ocean’s 8 (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon) is a 2018 comedy heist film starring Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, and Anne Hathaway that continues the series started by Ocean’s Eleven in 2001. Rihanna plays the film’s main hacker, Nine Ball. She uses Nmap in many scenes to compromise people and companies responsible for guarding the $150 million diamond necklace they want to steal. Nmap is normally shown in the background as context to her hacks rather than taking the leading role.

In this screen (full version), Nmap is shown in the two screens on the right while they are 3D-scanning their target necklace on the left:

And here is the whole gang gathered together to (presumably) analyze their Nmap results (image is from here):

Even the movie trailer has a glimpse of Nmap at 1:50:

Congratulations to Alejandro Hernandez for being first to discover and report the Nmap scenes!

Oliver Stone’s 2016 Snowden film (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon) dramatizes Edward Snowden’s massive leak of classified documents revealing NSA widespread surveillance of U.S. citizens. In one early scene, Snowden is given a network security challenge at a CIA training class which is expected to take 5 to 8 hours. But with the help Nmap and a custom Nmap NSE script named ptest.nse, Snowden stuns the professor by completing everything in 38 minutes! Nmap’s distinct tabular output is visible on other students’ screens too, though we may have to wait for the 4K resolution film release to read the exact text. Here are a couple screen shots from the Nmap scenes:

Congratulations to Prabesh Thapa from Nepal for being first to discover and report the Nmap scenes!

Dredd (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon), a film adaptation of the famous Judge Dredd comics, was released in 2012 and contains multiple Nmap scenes.

In the vast, post-apocalyptic metropolis of Mega City One, the only law is provided by the Judges of the Hall of Justicecops with the power of judge, jury and executioner. Most feared among these law-keepers is the ruthless and implacable Judge Dredd (Karl Urban). He and Cadet Judge Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) infiltrate a notorious high-rise slum tower controlled by former prostitute-turned-drug-lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey). For network reconnaissance and exploitation of the slum tower network, they turn to Nmap! The three minute movie trailer briefly shows an Nmap version scan against TCP port 22 (SSH):

Who Am INo System is Safe (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon) is a 2014 German cyber-thriller about dueling hacker groups (patterned after Anonymous) vying to commit the most audacious system compromises and pranks. During an initiation scene 13:40 into the movie, the protagonist Benjamin proves his skills by compromising the local power company and causing a brief blackout. He does so by running an Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE) script that he has presumably written. The script is named iec-backdoor.nse, referencing the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards which control utility power grid equipment. This bit of realism is a nice touch!

In The Bourne Ultimatum (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon), the CIA needs to hack the mail server of a newspaper (The Guardian UK) to read the email of a reporter they assassinated. So they turn to Nmap and its new official GUI Zenmap to hack the mail server! Nmap reports that the mail server is running SSH 3.9p1, Posfix smtpd, and a name server (presumably bind). They also make substantial use of Bash, the Bourne-again shell. Congratulations to Roger Chui for being the first to spot this.

Yippee Ki-Yay! In Die Hard 4: Live Free or Die Hard(Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon), Detective John McClane (Bruce Willis) is dispatched to retrieve hacker Matthew Farrell (Justin Long) because the FBI suspects him of breaching their computer systems. Later, Justin is enlisted to help thwart terrorist mastermind Thomas Gabrial’s attempts at total World destruction. In this Scene, Farrell demonstrates his Nmap skills:

Thanks to Andrew Hake for catching the cameo and sending these HD screen shots.The scene occurs about 8 minutes into the movie.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Swedish: Mn som hatar kvinnor) is a 2009 Swedish thriller film (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon) based on the Internationally bestselling novel by Stieg Larsson. It follows Lisbeth, a troubled young hacker suffering from Asperger syndrome and a history of abuse by authority figures, as she works with a journalist trying to solve a 40-year old murder mystery. It was the third-highest grossing non-English film of 2009.

The Nmap scene lasts only moments and occurs about 6 minutes in. Note that this is the original film (English subtitled version available on Amazon). A big-budget Hollywood remake was released in 2011 (IMDB, Wikipedia, Amazon), though they may have ruined it by cutting the Nmap scene!.

Here are screen shots followed by the movie trailer:

Thanks to Dillon Korman for catching the scene and sending screenshots!

Nmap and NmapFE were used in The Listening (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon), a 2006 movie about a former NSA officer who defects and mounts a clandestine counter-listening station high in the Italian alps. Thanks to Addy Yeow Chin Heng for the screenshots.

Nmap is used in the opening credits ofJustice League: Doom (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon). This 2012 animated superhero film features Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern battling a team of supervillains. Thanks to Spencer Davenport for catching this and sending screenshots. It is interesting that in most cases (but not all), they changed the Nmap URL (http://nmap.org) in the Nmap output to http://we.inc (Wayne Enterprises). Also, they ran the command in August 2011 using a version of Nmap (4.20) from 2006. I realize that Batman has a lot of important and heroic work to do, but surely he can spare 5 minutes to download and install the latest version of Nmap!

Abduction (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon) is a 2011 thriller about a teenager (Taylor Lautner from the Twilight series) who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website. In the process he is chased by, among other villians, an Nmap-using Serbian hacker henchman. If you notice something familiar about the background Nmap scans in the screenshots below, it’s because the film makers directly cribbed some of them from The Matrix Reloaded.

The 2012 science fiction thriller Extracted (IMDB, Amazon) portrays a scientist who invents a technique to watch people’s memories, but finds trouble when entering the mind of a heroin addict suspected of murder.

A trailer is also available here. Thanks to Sander Ferdinand for discovering and reporting the Nmap scene.

Nmap was used in the acclaimed Thai thriller 13:Game of Death(Wikipedia,IMDB, Amazon), also known as “13 Beloved” and “13 game sayawng”. This movie follows the story of a man given the chance to complete 13 challenges to win $100,000,000. Successive challenges become increasingly intense, dangerous, illegal, degrading, and grotesque. What would you do for $100 million? Eventually one of his sysadmin friends gets worried about him and she demonstrates Nmap hacking skills by breaking into the twisted game’s website (longer summary).

We have receivedan AVI video (5MB)of the scene, and also numerousscreenshots.

Thanks to Tazman for first notifying me of the scene, and to Laga Mahesa and Ithilgore for sending screenshots.

Broken Saints (Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon) is an award-winning animated film series (motion comic) produced in 24 chapters first published online between 2001 and 2003. It was then improved for the 2006 DVD release distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is a complex, 12-hour tale of four strangers from “the quiet corners of the globe” connected by a vision they all receive of coming evil.

One of those four strangers, Raimi, is a young security software developer who uses Nmap to compromise systems and uncover corporate treachery at his estranged employer. The Nmap Scene is in Chapter 2, Cryptic, and can be viewed free on Youtube. You don’t really need to watch Chapter 1 first, but it is available here. The Nmap cameo was first discovered by David Alexander. Screenshots:

Nmap (and then telnet) are used by a teenage hacker (Gena) to deface Microsoft.Com in the 2006 Russian film Khottabych(Wikipedia, IMDB). Microsoft and the US authorities are understandably upset by the attack, so they send the attractive female hacker Annie to flush him out. The movie also features an epic battle between powerful genies (the kind which come in a bottle) fighting for dominion over Earth. Thanks to Paul Shatov for notifying us and sending the screenshots! I bought this DVD from Amazon, but it is region 5 and offers no English dubbing or subtitles. I had to use this subtitle file. Wikipedia claims that a region 1 English DVD was released.

With the risque “HaXXXor” series of low-budget films, Nmap makes the leap from Science fiction to soft-core pornography. HaXXXor Volume 1: No Longer Floppy includes a lengthy Nmap training scene by model E-Lita. Here are some photos from early in the scene while she is still clothed:

In the Japanese drama series Bloody Monday, a hacker named Falcon must use his computer skills to unravel a mysterious project Bloody Monday and prevent a biological terrorist attack from devastating Tokyo. Nmap is used in multiple episodes, starting with Season One, Episode One. You can also find Nmap used about 20 seconds into this clip (Season 2, Episode 4). Other security tools portrayed realistically include Netcat, Rainbow Crack, and an Sadmind exploit. Thanks to Shirase Akira for reporting this first.

Ariana Grande Is Totally Over the Tattoo Misspelling Debacle02.02.19

Kevin Winter/Getty Images

Ariana Grande has no tears left to cry when it comes to her misspelled tattoo.

On Jan. 29, Grande debuted a new tattoo on the palm of her hand right under her fingers. There was just a bit of a mishap, however, because people noticed that the ink said “shichirin” and not “7 Rings,” which it was supposed to say in Japanese. Ashichirin is actually a small charcoal grill.

She wrote about the typo in a now-deleted tweet and made fun of herself a bit too while she was at it. “It hurt like f–k n still looks tight. I wouldn’t have lasted one more symbol lmao. But this spot also peels a ton and won’t last so if I miss it enough I’ll suffer thru the whole thing next time,” she wrote. “also.huge fan of tiny bbq grills.”

The singer fixed it two days later, but there was apparently yetanother mistake. The additional kanji made the tattoo translate to “Japanese BBQ Finger.”

Perhaps that was intentional?

The tattoo debacle comes just before she’s set to release her second album in six months,Thank U, Next. It’s due to drop Feb. 8.

On Saturday, Grande took to Twitter (where she normally shares much of her information) and told her fans she just wants to focus on music and not the mistake. She wrote in one tweet, “i also went back and got it fixed with the help of my tutor to be more accurate. i can’t read or write kanji obviously.what do you want me to do? it was done out of love and appreciation. what do you want me to say?”

The “God Is a Woman” artist then defended her choice and said she really made an effort to correct it. “u kno how many people make this mistake and DON’T care just cause they like how it looks? bruh…. i care soooo much,” she wrote. “what would u like me to do or say? forreal.”

She also said the tattoo wasn’t meant to be any type of cultural appropriation, just “appreciation.” She wrote, “there is a difference between appropriation and appreciation. my japanese fans were always excited when i wrote in japanese or wore japanese sayings on my clothing. however, all of the merch with japanese on it was taken down from my site not that anyone cared to notice.”

Grande got really personal in one tweet and described her “crippling anxiety.” She wrote, “i have crippling anxiety lol. i don’t like hurtin ppl. people on this app really don’t know how to be forgiving or gentle when someone has made an innocent mistake.”

Grande wrote in another tweet that she “wanted” to move there one day” and loves Japan. She had one final request for her fans: “i’m made of love and nothing else. i jus wanna sing, man. wake me up when tour starts.”

Ocean Gem | Steven Universe Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia02.01.19

I’m going to bring the ocean back, or get really thirsty trying.

September 25, 2014

“Ocean Gem” is the 26th episode of the first season of Steven Universe, and the 26th episode overall.

The ocean disappears on the first day of summer, and Beach City is in a panic.[2]

The Gems angrily tellSteven that he is grounded for disobeying orders. Amethyst is unfamiliar with the term and takes itliterally, threatening to bury Steven until he has learned his lesson. Before the Gems try to take away his privileges, Greg arrives and brings everyoneoutside to see that the ocean has disappeared. Mayor Dewey, nervous and shouting loudly, blamesthe Crystal Gems. He cries, claiming that no one will come to “Desert” City. Garnet tells him that it was Lapis Lazuli, and Pearl explains the current situation. Still upset, Mayor Dewey frantically begs them to fix it. Steven, while inside the Beach House, prepares to find Lapis, as he acknowledges that the whole situation was his fault. Not wanting him to be alone, Connie, Greg, and Lion all want to join him on his quest, with the Gems adding in that they obviously have to go. Garnet also adds that Steven is ungrounded. As the Gems, Steven, Connie, Lion, and Greg are leaving, Mayor Dewey sadly starts a garden hose in a futile effort to refillthe ocean.

While driving, Greg plays some of hismusic that Rose liked.Garnet dislikes it so much that she jumps out of the van and spends the rest of the trip riding on the roof. Before they arrive Steven questions why Lapis is fighting them. Pearl admits that not all Gems are good, and explains that the monsters they fight were Gems that became corrupted and broken. When they arrive, they see a large tower of water that reaches into the sky. Lapis, sensing them, yells that they should not be there and should leave her alone, and Steven responds that they are not leaving unless they get the ocean back. Lapis then makes water clones of the Crystal Gems, and the Gems fight them. During the battle, Greg’s leg is broken when the water clone of Stevenlifts and drops the van from a height. Steven, telling Lapis that he does not want to fight anymore,activates his shield due to his anger towards Lapis for attacking Greg and Connie, and his fierce protective feelings toward his father and friend. The shield deflects a water attack causing a vibration that forces the water clones to dissipate. Steven tells Lapis that he is coming up to see her, pleads not to be drowned, and walks into the tower. The water gently carries him to the top, at the edge of space.

Lapis explains that she does not believe in protecting Earth and wants to go back home, but her gem is cracked, so she is attempting to stretch the entire ocean into a pillar of water that will reach all the way to Homeworld. Steven, remembering his healing powers, licks his hand and applies the saliva to Lapis’ gem on her back. The crack heals, Lapis’ eyes are restored, and she sprouts wings madeof water. Thanking him, Lapis flies off into space.Suddenly, the tower collapses and Steven falls with it. Teaming up, Lion and Connie are able to teleport and catch him before he lands. As the Gems, Steven, Connie, and Greg return, the residents of Beach City congratulate him as their hero. Garnet acknowledges that Lapis made it offplanet, and Pearl asks what it means for them. Garnet says to wait and see. Steven says goodbye to Lapis Lazuli wherever she may be, as the star iris closes on a glimmering sparkle far away.

101 Cute Butterfly Tattoo Designs to get that Charm01.31.19

Butterfly tattoo designs are the epitome of classic feminine tattoos. They are the entry point for even the most girly of girls to discover their love of ink and body modification, but if you take a deeper look youll see that butterfly tattoo designs are not just for beginners.

Have you read The Very Hungry Caterpillar?If you do, you will see that the deep meaning of transformation through a chrysalis can be applied to your life in many ways, and thus a tattoo that some might consider merely cute is actually quite meaningful to the bearer. Plus, Eric Carles illustrations will give you some wonderful inspiration for unique color combinations and effects to get your creative juices flowing!

If youve gone through a transformational experience in your life, it may be time to explore how you can commemorate that experience on your skin! Weve collected some of the most beautiful and creative butterfly tattoo designs weve ever seen to give you the inspiration you need to find your next custom butterfly tattoo.

This article explores some of our favorite butterfly tattoo design trends in detail, including Monarch butterflies, black and whites, creative use of colors, and teeny weeny tats. Make sure to scroll through the bonus photo series at the end, were not able to elucidate on all of them!

The monarch butterfly is the most recognizable specimen of butterfly youll find. The vibrant orange and black wings have high contrast, which lends them well to a great and long-lasting tattoo.

Monarchs are known for always finding their way home through a dangerous and meandering route to their mating grounds in South America. This lends an even deeper meaning to your butterfly tattoo: your ability to persevere and find your way home even through the toughest of trials and tribulations. The piece above adds a tasteful shadow andsofter color borders, which fade into each other giving the vibrant wings a dreamy quality. Talk to your artist about the feel you are looking for.

This more classical monarch design shows the crisp contrast naturally found on these stunning creatures, and utilizes white highlights to add more lifelike definition. Your artist will appreciate this straightforward design that will stand the test of time, and can be added to as you continue on your journey through life.

The more basic your design, the more straightforward the tattoo. If youre simply in love with monarch butterflies, you can always keep it simple with a hip tattoo and basic outlines. Placement of these simple designs is key. Choose a place like the hip above, which will allow your design to peek out without fully revealing itself. The bonus: youll often save some cash (not to mention some chair time) at the shop with an easy to execute design like the one above.

The placement of your tattoo is just as important as the design! Check out how this stylized monarch butterfly is perfectly positioned to make the most out of an unusual tattoo location. Consider unconventional placementand exaggerated proportionsto take your standard tattoo design to the next level.

Your hands are some of the most valuable tattoo real estate that you have. A colorful butterfly motif can be an attractive addition. This tattoo takes it up even further by splitting the ultra-realistic design between both hands. The subtle blue highlights are an attractive addition of complimentary color that shows this artist knows what he is doing. Hand tattoosmake an interesting icebreaker with anyone that you meet, and give you instant credibility in body modification circles.

Another bold choice is shown in this large butterfly series, accentuating the subtle curves of your body with careful placement. Try different positioning of the butterflies to keep things interesting, rather than always the default looking-down-on-the-wings approach. This series even uses subtle differences in colors and shading to give each monarch maven its own distinct personality!

A stylized stunner like the one above will set you apart from the flash-friendly crowd, and the additional flourishes lend a sense of whimsy and movement to the piece. Who says black and white is boring? Have your artist add some skillful shading and your tattoo will have both depth and movement. Have a small initial tattoo that youd like to conceal? Talk to your artist about a piece like this and youll turn that headache into a beautiful piece that youll love to look at.

Teeny tats in a series like this one make the best use of a stark black and white motif. Placement on the inner wrist is ideal for a cute peek-a-boo effect that is at once sweet and sexy. A combination of wing designs and sizes creates even more interest in this tattoo series, and you can even get one at a time to build your collection and mark significant moments in your life.

This tattoo combines several of the latest trends. We see elements of the watercolor craze, a trail of butterflies of different sizes, and the piece spanning several body parts. Let your artist take a stab at combining modern trends, and youll end up with a timeless custom butterfly tattoo design that you can be proud of. Another buildable tattoo, this one will likely spiral up the leg and onto the hip before this butterfly lover is ready to move on!

This simple style was intriguing enough to make the cover story! Add a friend to your butterfly design, and youve got instant custom look. Keep it interesting by using a difference in size and position. The classic outlines above are artfully placed so show off the contours of her shoulder and thus flatter her body in a subtle and yet unmistakable way.

Accentuate your curves with a series of fluttering friends to create movement and interest. This series uses different butterfly positions that generate interest and requires no colorful embellishment to look complete and timeless. You can always add color later!

Peek-a-boo! I see your perfectly shaded monarch mamma. This piece will bring a smile to your face every time you look down. Note the subtle combination of stippling and classic shading with impeccable outlines. Not as simple as it seems! Centering the design on your forearm gives you instant badass credibility, that can be covered up if need be. Want to surprise your colleague and let them know youre not a pushover? Simply roll up your sleeves and watch their jaw drop.

Let creativity reign! You dont need a ton of color to get a ton of attention. This moth-like butterfly tattoo does away with the sweetness in favor of the intriguing. A great use of geometric bold lining and stipple shading! See if your artist would like to play with these concepts, and get your own intriguing insect to set you apart.

Take the concepts of heavy outlining and stippling down a notch for a more feminine finished product. The smaller size of this piece allows the heavy lining and black and white concept to remain flirty and fun. Angle it to follow your shoulder and its instantly more interesting.

Why not create a nature scene with your butterfly inspiration? After all, they are one of the most beautiful pollinators out there. Combine your love of flowers with your love of butterflies, and youll create an unusual black and white motif that you and your artist will be proud of. Time to sign up for the next tattoo contest!
