Dowling Duncan and redesigning the American Dollar:

Why the size?
We have kept the width the same as the existing dollars. However we have changed the size of the note so that the one dollar is shorter and the 100 dollar is the longest. When stacked on top of each other it is easy to see how much money you have. It also makes it easier for the visually impaired to distinguish between notes.

Why a vertical format?
When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally. You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense.

Why different colors?
It’s one of the strongest ways graphically to distinguish one note from another.

Why these designs?
We wanted a concept behind the imagery so that the image directly relates to the value of each note. We also wanted the notes to be educational, not only for those living in America but visitors as well. Each note uses a black and white image depicting a particular aspect of American history and culture. They are then overprinted with informational graphics or a pattern relating to that particular image.

$1 – The first African American president
$5 – The five biggest native American tribes
$10 – The bill of rights, the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution
$20 – 20th Century America
$50 – The 50 States of America
$100 – The first 100 days of President Franklin Roosevelt. During this time he led the congress to pass more important legislations than most presidents pass in their entire term. This helped fight the economic crises at the time of the great depression. Ever since, every new president has been judged on how well they have done during the first 100 days of their term.

I get so annoyed with Americans who make fun of Canadian currency because it’s “Monopoly Money.” What? Our currency is multicoloured, see-through, holographic and almost indestructible! I guess that’s not as cool as being impossible to tell apart, wrinkly, bland and super easy to rip?

These designs are slick as hell, though.

These Bacteria Are Wired to Hunt Like a Tiny Wolf Pack

There is an elaborate stealth communication network in the Earth beneath your feet. This smart web acts like a superorganism, fortifying defensive capabilities and coordinating deadly attacks on unsuspecting targets. But it’s not run by the NSA, the CIA, or the military. This web is made of bacteria.

A team of scientists led by Manfred Auer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have used cutting-edge 3-D microscopy to identify a new mechanism for bacterial networking. They observed elaborate webs of a common soil bacterium, Myxococcus xanthus, connected by thread-like membranes. This system of cellular pipelines suggests that some bacteria have evolved complex ways to deliver molecular cargo out of sight from snooping neighbors. Their work appears in the journal Environmental Microbiology.

˝Oh… why not…?˝ Kanika asked with a small pout. ˝We could get some awesome dog or something and it could help us track down the demons! Come on, I know you want it deep inside…˝ She added with a grin, hoping that she could still change the vampire’s mind.

"Tsk. Little brat" Raphael growled. "I’ll have to admit defeat this time. Sleeping next to you has become almost necessary. Your snuggles are addicting" She laughed.

˝Hey, what if I’m the cutest one, huh? I mean, cuter than Nyx and you? After all, the second most adorable thing in this planet needs me for snuggles… That kinda says a lot, doesn’t it?˝ Kanika said with a huge grin on her face.

"Yeah, I guess it does" The vampire smiled. "About snuggles, why aren’t you snuggling me right now?"

"Is this a challenge, kiddo? Then come on, show me what you got " Raphael said, smirking and toying with her set of throwing knives. "Messing with the best isn't wise. I've been doing this way before you were born. I'm so gonna kick your ass".

˝Yes, it’s a challenge.˝ Kanika said with a grin as she held a rather short sword in her hand. Even though Raphael was armed better, the young Slayer didn’t care much about it, convinced that she could take her on. ˝Yeah, you were, and maybe your time’s passed and all. Ever thought of that, vampy?˝

"What a pity, I was planning to move to your neck…" Raphael chuckled. "You’ll be the death of me, kiddo" She smiled and held her tighter.

˝Well, now when you mention it, I might allow you to move to my neck… I know how much you love it.˝ The Slayer giggled and kissed the vampire again. ˝Thank god you’re already kinda dead, huh?˝

"Trust me, I couldn’t be feeling more alive than I am right now" The vampire said in a serious tone. "I know it sounded cheesy, but I mean it. Normal and special at the same time, that’s how you make me feel." 

"What happened last night?"

˝…I don’t know… Raph, I swear I don’t know…˝ The baby Slayer whispered.

Raphael sighed. “The black eye and my bruised ribs are Faith’s doing. She heard of what happened between us and this is her way of saying “we’re still friends but I’m mad at you and if you hurt Kanika again I’m gonna hunt you down and kill you”. Honestly I don’t blame her. I’d have done the same thing” The vampire said. “I’m not mad at her and you shouldn’t be either. I heal fast. Now try to get some sleep, okay?”

Kanika stared at the vampire in confusion, not wanting to believe at first that this was done by Faith. There were three people that she cared for in her life and both women were on that short list. The last thing she wanted was for them to kill each other. ˝B-but.. but it’s our fault… I-I mean, it’s not like… like I didn’t want it… I It wasn’t your fault alone…˝ She mumbled, looking shaken with the fact that Raphael was hurt by Faith. ˝I-I need to talk to F-Faith… D-does she know that… that I had the relapse and all…?˝

"That’s exactly why she got mad at me. She isn’t against us being together. But she blames your relapse on me"

Latin night.

"Mmh… Really? Very interesting. Guess who’s gonna sleep on the couch later?"

˝Guess who’ll be snuggled on the couch with me later.˝ Kanika grinned. ˝Oh yeah, that’s right. Nyx.˝

"Tsk. Little brat" Raphael growled. "I’ll have to admit defeat this time. Sleeping next to you has become almost necessary. Your snuggles are addicting" She laughed.

"Do you really want me to stop?" The vampire asked, a playful smirk on her face.

˝Well… No.˝ Kanika said with a grin and kissed Raphael gently on the lips before pulling back slightly. ˝I just wish you would aim at my lips more.˝

"What a pity, I was planning to move to your neck…" Raphael chuckled. "You’ll be the death of me, kiddo" She smiled and held her tighter.

"Only if you admit that I’m cuter" The vampire decidedly nodded once she laid the slayer on the couch.

˝Never! I will never admit that! Nyx is the cutest being in this universe and no one and nothing can change my mind!˝
