It’s a Palestine struggle for existence, freedom and human rights. Israel’s bombing of this university, the IUG, the best university of Gaza and ranking on Palestine’s top universities, is a deliberate Israeli attack on the right of education and Palestine’s future. Zionism is a dark hole, fully supported by Europe and the US.
A friend writes:
"The top university in Gaza was bombed yesterday in Israeli forces.
Israel said it had “laboratories” used for “research” on weapons. A university used for research, shocker!
The university was also bombed six times in 2008.
Meanwhile, Tel Aviv University has offered students who participate in the assault on Gaza one year of free tuition.
In case you needed more reason to support the academic boycott of Israel, here you go.”
Some preliminary observations—similarities and contrasts between Israel and the Resistance :

…The design of the new library is both timeless and bold. Its vast circular form alongside the circular Alexandrian harbor recalls the cyclical nature of knowledge, fluid throughout time. It’s glistening, tilting roof recalls the ancient Alexandrian lighthouse and provides the city with a new symbol for learning and culture.

New Camera Stabilizer Could Change Cinematography Forever
Not really future, more likely tomorrow, but add this gimbal to a drone and welcome 1984. Only 15k plus the price of a drone. From Gizmodo:
A new piece of filmmaking gear was just announced that could completely re-invent the complex process of camera stabilization. It’s currently being tested and endorsed by Vincent LaForet, who’s given us a little taste of what it’s capable of.
The product is called MōVI, created by Freefly, longtime maker of crazy camera-drone equipment and stabilizers. LaForet is presenting a short film and behind-the-scenes video to illustrate its abilities, which consists of a completely custom-made gimbal and 3-axis gyroscope that digitally stabilizes the camera (a Canon 1DC in this case). It looks to be very light and portable, a far cry from giant metal arms, vests, and weights that almost the entire camera support world is based on.
