DeviantART user Smokepaint produces artwork that’s perfect to expose children to. After all, the cosmic colors found within each of her beautiful child-centric illustrations would no doubt spark creativity and inspire children to participate in fantastical adventures of storytelling. Her work is so wondrous, it’s as though viewers are looking up at a clear starry night.
Another defining characteristic of Smokepaint’s work is her mastery over lighting and texture. She often makes her images look as though they’re shining and metallic-hued despite only using digital airbrushes. This is especially effective for the line of work she’s in as children naturally gravitate towards sparkly things. Her use of soft brushes gives most of her images a blurred quality, which is reminiscent of the blurred vision experienced during dreaming.!/photos/138149/4 SMOKEPAINT DeviantART user Smokepaint produces artwork... more

The Smoking Baby - the 2-year old who became a global YouTube sensation in the summer of 2010, has unwittingly become the posterchild and symptom of a Big Tobacco-sponsored battle being waged in developing markets.
In Sex, Lies & Cigarettes, Vanguard correspondent Christof Putzel heads to Indonesia, where he exposes Big Tobacco's successful and deadly expansion into that country, and observes the stage being set for a David vs. Goliath battle, as a small, underfunded group of concerned advocates battle Big Tobacco and a government drunk on profits and denial.

Smoke spewed Monday from two adjacent reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, a nuclear safety official said, setbacks that came despite fervent efforts to prevent the further release of radioactive materials at the stricken facility.
After 6 p.m., white smoke was seen emanating from the facility's No. 2 reactor, according to Hidehiko Nishiyama, an official with Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency. About two hours earlier, workers were evacuated from the area around the No. 3 reactor after gray smoke began to rise from the wreckage of its steel-and-concrete housing, which was blown apart by a hydrogen explosion last week.
The No. 3 reactor has been the top priority for authorities trying to contain damage to the plant and stave off a possible meltdown. Its fuel includes a small percentage of plutonium mixed with the uranium in its fuel rods, which experts say could cause more harm than regular uranium fuels in the event of a meltdown.
Nishiyama said there was no evident explosion, spike in radiation or injuries at the No. 3 reactor. The smoke was coming from the building's southeastern side, where the reactor's spent nuclear fuel pool is located, but the origin of the smoke at either reactor was unknown.
The coolant pools contain spent fuel rods that still generate high amounts of heat, and authorities have been working to keep them full to prevent the rods from being exposed. NISA estimated that, between roughly 9 p.m. Sunday to 4 a.m. Monday, 1,170 tons of water were sprayed on the reactor and its fuel pool.
In Geneva, Switzerland, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency warned that while signs of improvement at the site are evident, the plant "has been seriously damaged by flood water and is littered with debris."
"The crisis has still not been resolved, and the situation at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant remains very serious," Yukiya Amano, the director-general of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency, told its board of governors Monday after a visit to the site.
"Buildings have been damaged by explosions," he said. "There has, for the most part, been no electric power. Radiation levels are elevated. It is no exaggeration to describe the work of the emergency teams as heroic."
On the the other hand, Amano told reporters, rising pressure inside the containment unit at reactor No. 3, a concern from the weekend, was down and power had been restored to some of the reactors.Smoke spewed Monday from two adjacent reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power... more
Tobacco smoking is the leading preventable cause of death and disease in the U.S., with more than 400,000 deaths each year attributable to smoking or its consequences. And yet teens still smoke. Indeed, smoking usually begins in the teen years, and approximately 80 percent of adult smokers became hooked by the time they were 18. Meanwhile, teens who don't take up smoking usually never do.
