5 Things You Wanted To Know About Mold Making

A mold is a negative impression of the object you want to cast. It captures every surface detail of the object right down to the slightest undercut or indentation. It is not just inanimate objects either – it is even possible to capture a negative of a living, breathing person before using the body mold to reproduce a stunning life cast.

1. How to make a mold? – Mold making is an intricate art in itself. There are many techniques such as block molds, blanket molds, glove molds, poured molds and more. The making varies from simple to intricate and some can get quite time-consuming. Similarly, you can make the mold as a single piece or in two or more multiple parts depending on the shape and complexity of the object. The choice of mold type depends as much on the object as your own dexterity and comfort level.

2. What do you need? – You have to stock up on various materials, supplies, tools and equipment to make molds. There is a varied choice of mold making materials such as clay, plaster, alginate, moulage, polyurethane resin, latex rubber, silicone rubber, thermoset mold rubber and so on. Each of them has specific features, functions and suitability. You will also need gloves, containers, spatulas, mixer, brushes, knives, rasps and sometimes even a vibrating table or vacuum chamber. You should source all your art materials and tools from a trusted brand and supplier to ensure good quality and value.

3. How to go about it? – Once you have settled on the most suitable mold making material and method, you begin with the actual mold making. You will need a mold box to contain the object and seal the object first. It’s better to apply a release agent over the model. Then you have to apply or pour the mold making material all over the object. Technical aspects like spues and keys will have to be considered. The mold has to set properly before demolding it carefully from the object.

4. How to use the mold? – Once the mold has cured properly, it is ready for use. Clean and finish it properly before proceeding to the casting. You have to carefully choose a complementary casting material as the latter should not react or interfere with the mold in any manner. Sealing and coating with release agent follows again before pouring the casting material.

5. If you need help? – Mold making is interesting, enjoyable and even makes for a lucrative profession. You can learn how to make a mold by apprenticing under an expert, watching videos, reading how-to books or even experimenting on your own. Or you can choose to join a workshop that is led by an experienced professional for some valuable hands-on learning.

10 Good and Bad Features of the New Tecno Camon X Pro

For those who rushed to get the Tecno Camon X after its release, a series of things would be running through your minds right now. More storage space? A higher resolution display and aspect ratio? These and many more come with the phone that was released in 2018 alongside the Tecno Camon X, Yes! I’m talking about the Tecno Camon X Pro.

This phone hit stores at the same time as the Tecno Camon X which is a lower variant and it is worthy of being called the “deal-breaker” as it boasts even more upgrades than the Camon X.

The Camon X Pro, a sequel to the Camon CX comes in Bordeaux Red and Midnight Black, housing Face ID, 1080 x 2160 pixel display, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory (ROM) and a host of others is what I’m calling Tecno’s best smartphone on the market.

In this review, I would be highlighting 10 new features of the Tecno Camon X Pro and the setbacks, those features we hate.
Tecno Camon X Pro Display

  1. Camon X Pro comes with a 6.0 inch IPS screen with Gorilla Glass 4. A built to withstand screen, not lacking in the display, as it has an aspect ratio of 18.9 and a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. High definition graphics! A huge step up for the gamers and the movie lovers.
  2. Sunlight readability with up to 500nit brightness level. Meaning you can enjoy the interaction with your phone screen, in the sunlight, in the dark, any time of the day.

Tecno Camon X Pro Camera

  1. An eye-popping 24-megapixel front camera with f/20 aperture and dual-LED has HDR capabilities and an AI beauty; where installed algorithms are put to work in beautifying your pictures.
  2. A rear camera with a 16-megapixel sensor and a f/20 aperture that guarantees great photos as it is packed with a focus that’s faster than that of its predecessors. Able to deliver quality photos in both good and even poor lighting conditions with its quad-LED flash.

Note: I will like to point out, though, that the Camon X Pro doesn’t have a really good camera, I mean perfect for low lights, as much as we would expect. The front camera isn’t as great as the Camon CX, and I wouldn’t have made the upgrade if camera was my thing.
I expected that with the massive 24 MP front camera, we’ll get something superb, but what we received was way below par. It’s even worse when you try to take pictures at night. So here is my HONEST take on the camera, hope you’ll be able to make an informed decision after reading this.
Tecno Camon X Pro Hardware

  1. Inside the Camon X Pro is MediaTek’s System on a chip; Helio P23 octa-core which is more powerful than the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430. A processor that is based on 64-bit architecture bringing together eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores that possesses an integrated Mali-G71 MP3 graphics processor which operates at 770MHz.
  2. More speed and more storage space for the hoarders; The Camon X Pro features a 4GB RAM, and a 64GB Internal memory (ROM) with an SD card slot, more expandable storage space.
  3. At the back of the phone is Camon X Pros fingerprint sensor which is a lot faster than that of the Phantom 8. This more precise fingerprint sensor is built in a way that allows for a better finger placement.

Tecno Camon X Pro Software

  1. The new HiOS V3.3 layered Android Oreo 8.1 keeps the Camon X Pro in sync with every other smartphone running the Android OS, and it’s not looking to get old any time soon as it can be upgradable to the next OS version when that time comes.
  2. The Camon X Pro takes security a notch higher with Face ID. Taking an in-depth map of your face, Face ID is a lot faster compared to the Iris scanner, giving you the option of unlocking the phone by just looking into the front camera of the Camon X Pro.

Tecno Camon X Pro Battery

  1. Its battery, with a capacity of 3750 mAh, would keep your phone awake with 4 to 5 hours of screen on time.

Just as there are a number of noteworthy things to look forward to in the Camon X Pro, here are a number of things that can’t be liked:

  • With the midrange Adreno GPUs embedded in Qualcomm chips, be sure to expect some hiccups during gameplay owning to its graphics chip.
  • Some apps found in the HiOS could really have been done away with, they just sit there redundant. I mean who needs an app for something you can access in the Settings Menu?
  • Without the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Professional Mode, the camera doesn’t look as limitless as you’d expect.

Our Verdict
The Tecno Camon X Pro, Tecno’s best Camon till date, which boasts a continuous performance, decent battery life and a lot of camera power, the main feature the Camon series is known for. This is a phone that you won’t want to replace anytime soon, hopefully till Tecno releases another. It isn’t a disappointment but a statement of the Chinese OEMs maturity.

Buying Used Textbooks for Profit

College students need textbooks to help them learn and earn an academic degree. However, on top of tuition, room and board and meals, why are textbooks so expensive? Textbooks cover many areas of knowledge. They are prepared specifically with a lot of information that include many original pictures, special charts, and specific data. Textbooks are extremely useful to students for learning and profitable for the companies that publish them. While textbooks can be a financial burden on the student, they can be profitable for a book scouter.

A book scouter is an opportunist who buys cheap used books at thrift stores or book sales, and sells them for more money, particularly on Amazon. Brand new textbooks are the most coveted of books for scouters since they typically cost over $100. Of course, used textbooks don’t cost as much. But when the scouter goes to a thrift store, such as the Salvation Army, Goodwill, and book sales at libraries, textbooks can cost as little as several dollars. Among all types of books, a seller can “flip” – buying a book and selling it for more money, textbooks generally lead to great deals on Amazon. So, buying used textbooks that are new is one of the most profitable books that sellers can buy. To sell textbooks on Amazon, some rules need to be applied for maximizing profits. If you buy ones that are relatively new, Amazon might be selling the same edition and condition for roughly $10 to $150.

Collect new ones that are still in relatively good condition, specifically those that have kept their glossy, clean covers. Plus, there should be as few underlined or highlighted marks or writing on the inside. Buy brand new or those that are one to three years old.

Look for textbooks about most subjects which do not change over time, such as: history, math, science, even business and nursing. Old computer textbooks become obsolete with time, except for computer coding.

The closer the seller lives to a major university, the better luck he or she will have of finding more textbooks at local thrift shops.

Search thrift stores for high school textbooks in your area. High schools replace textbooks much less often than colleges or universities. Therefore, they carry their value better.

Unfortunately, many college textbook editions change every year, which eliminates the student’s chance to use last year’s edition. So, they will have to pay more money for brand new textbooks. The sad reality is that very few changes are generally made between editions.

Book scouters search for textbooks as well as other categories of books available at local thrift stores or garage sales. Textbooks that are new or relatively new are marked down to just a few dollars. Then they can be sold on Amazon for potentially high profits. Amazon buys new textbooks for a lot more money than most other types of books. If you want to try scouting textbooks to make a profit, buy their newest editions or the ones preceding them. Buy it in the best condition possible. If you live in a town or city where there is a university, you have a better chance of finding good textbooks. Don’t just buy college textbooks; try searching for high school textbooks, as well.

Although textbooks can be expensive for the average student, he or she could potentially sell them on Amazon for the same price that they were purchased. Just remember, knowledge is power and can be profitable too.

A Tree With Strong Roots

Paul sends Timothy out into the world to do his work with the following words: 18I’m passing this work on to you, my son Timothy. The prophetic word that was directed to you prepared us for this. All those prayers are coming together now so you will do this well, fearless in your struggle, keeping a firm grip on your faith and on yourself. After all, this is a fight we’re in.

One thing’s for sure: Timothy was called by God to proclaim his Word in the world. Timothy was young and would experience many things on his journey. Some days things wouldn’t go so well; some days he would be filled with doubts wondering what he was doing. Some days he would receive much more criticism than positive feedback. On those days he needed to hold on to one thing- his calling.

The more he would focus on and live his calling, the stronger the winds would blow. We all know the higher the tree, the stronger the winds up there. That is why Timothy had to be grounded, his roots grown deep into the foundation so that he could remain standing strong in the storms.

Why are some trees blown over in the storm and others not? Normally, trees that have a good root system would remain upright. Timothy had to ensure that his roots were well established. He had to plant himself in God’s words. And then, when it felt as if the wheels were coming off, he had to hold onto the calling spoken over his life.

Abigail’s story (not her real name) is about the storm winds that blew so hard in her everyday life that she was nearly uprooted:
This was not an easy year. I was planning my wedding, had a lot of stress at work, and had to complete my master’s thesis.

Two weeks ago, I called off my wedding. I prayed to God for guidance and through various things that happened He gave me clarity.

God gave me the strength to call off the wedding. I had to adjust my focus and repair my relationship with Him. I focused more on my fiancé – to such an extent that my values and my relationship with God broke down.

It wasn’t easy, but I’m grateful that I could remain true to my calling.

Without realising it, everyday things come between us and God. Without realising it, everyday things come between us and our calling. Slowly but surely our own dreams to come out at the top move in and gradually we shift God to the edge of our lives. We don’t have time. Life becomes chasing after wind and before we know it, the wind uproots our tree and blows it over.

God planted you where you are now. God has beautiful plans for your there. The question is whether you still know what they are? Do you believe that God had a plan for you there? Or have you chosen the way of least resistance and not grown so that the winds don’t blow that badly?

My friend, don’t you want to have another look at your original purpose? Don’t you want to stand up like Timothy and Abigail and do the right thing? Do you believe so strongly in God and your relationship with Him that you won’t allow anything to come between you?

To Make a Difference

Nadia (not her real name) tells this story:
I want to witness about God’s change in our place of work.

On 1 April 2017, I started as supervisor in a new subdivision. This subdivision was going through a difficult period due to sensitive enquiries in the public service.

The first day that I called a meeting in the new subdivision, the oldest woman there asked if she could ask something. “May we please start by reading from the Bible and praying. Every week.” Please note: our division was multi-cultural.

So I called the others and every one welcomed the suggestion with open arms. It grew from there and now we do it on Fridays too. We ask God to guide us over the weekend. We read from the Bible in Afrikaans, and then translate it into English and South Sotho. We pray and sing in English and South Sotho. Everyone is so enthusiastic about sharing scripture and we bless everyone, Mondays and Fridays.

That specific subdivision was so demotivated, couldn’t work, and was afraid to make decisions because of the investigation. But after we invited God into our workplace and even during the week encouraged one another with God’s Word, the atmosphere changed completely. Despite everything, instead of stress, we experience calm.

There is a feeling of inhuman peace in our building and all of us can feel it. We work in harmony and where this one woman got upset by even the smallest problems, she has grown calmer and we can resolve our differences calmly.

GOD IS GREAT!!

How many stories do we have to tell to know that when we invite God inside, it brings peace. It becomes peaceful. Then stress disappears, even if the circumstances are not so good.

Each of us must make God real more and more and involve Him wherever we go. We need God to bring peace to our world.

And as I type this devotional, my cell phone rings. It’s 06h00. I see it’s my pal and when he calls so early, I know something’s wrong.

He asks for advice and wisdom. There was a break-in at a teacher’s home. Her husband was murdered. Tis on the day that people were requested to wear black to create awareness of all the murders in our country…

And before I become negative, I reread Nadia’s story. We cannot allow the actions of people who mess up like that get us down. Our country and our world need God.

Therefore, each of us needs to live our calling. Through her position, Nadia allowed God to come into her workplace. She was living her calling.

Paul couldn’t stop himself from living his calling: 7This and this only has been my appointed work: getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth.

And now we get back to ourselves. Are you living your calling there where you work, live and play?

Reflection

Where is God’s peace required in your world?
What is your calling?
What can you do to bring about God’s peace?

Prayer

Lord, we need your peace. Our world is such a big mess. We know we cannot make it work. You are the only solution. Please help us to make You part of our world. Please help us to live our calling wherever we go. Amen.

How to Develop a Perfect Mind

When man’s mind is made perfect, then — and then only — will the body be able perfectly to express itself.

Charles F. Haanel wrote that. And he was right.

Because it all — everything — begins with your mind.

So…

How do you get a perfect mind?

You learn.

And…

How do you learn?

While we learn from experience and teachers, the best way is…

… to read.

Read books. Great books. The best books.

Because you will become what you read.

So find incredible books to read. Continuously feed your mind. Reading is a source of…

… inspiration…

… ideas…

… knowledge…

… entertainment…

… and information.

Don’t get caught up in reading things that do not feed your mind properly. If you whittle away your time by reading slop, then you run the risk of ruining your best and only tool that you have.

That is not to say that you should neglect your entertainment, but let’s face facts, some people only tend to their entertainment wants to the exclusion of everything else. Likewise, while it is fine and well to be informed about current events, there comes a point when getting information (reading newspapers and news blogs) is akin to gossiping. Know the difference.

As a guide for you, here is how you can model your reading habits for peak effect.

Self-Help/Inspiration – 35%

Education/Knowledge – 30%

Newspapers/Information – 15%

Entertainment – 20%

Read books from which you can become educated and inspired.

Biographies and autobiographies will introduce you to people and lives that will inform and inspire. You will see the world in a different way with each person you meet.

When you read history, you will discover that more often than not, truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction.

And there is so much more…

If you own a business, then read books about, for example, tax methods or marketing.

Are you a writer? Then it would do you well to read books on style.

Brush up your math skills.

What is the nature of quantum reality?

You live in a world where information flows like water. Knowledge pours into your life from every corner. You have…

… libraries…

… the Internet…

… your sundry devices.

Fill your glass with what you desire to learn and know.

As you think, thus you will do.

The brain leads and the body follows.

That should be ingrained into your psyche.

Put it into operation for yourself.

Begin by reading great books.

4 Useful Tips for Cosplay Beginners

Cosplay can seem a little intimidating for those just starting out, especially if planning to attend a convention. Dressing up to match the look of a favorite character from a comic book, anime, television series, movie or video game is now a very enjoyable pastime for more and more people every year. But the process of choosing the right outfit needs to be carefully chosen for the most enjoyable experience.

Let’s take a look at a few useful tips for beginners:

Carefully choose the outfit

The best type of outfit to wear at a convention has the ability to naturally complement your build and looks. However, with such a varied range of characters to get inspired by, there is certain to be an outfit that can fit virtually all sizes and shapes. Also, if you are planning to create the outfit, it helps to match your sewing skills to what you intend to make. For instance, there are plenty of outfits that involved catsuits and leotards which are mostly easy to accessorize to achieve the desired look of a favorite character.

Pack your gear wisely

A big and bulky outfit can easily get crushed or damaged while traveling to a convention. Therefore, it is essential to go with an outfit that is easy to travel with if planning a long-distant journey. Any armor or large pieces should give the option to reduce the size or fold to ensure everything fits in a vehicle. For the complete beginner one of the easiest options is likely to be the zentai suits or a similar style of outfit.

Use outfits with light materials

Some of the most impressive outfits are large creations, but they often make use of plenty of thick and bulky materials. This can leave the person wearing the outfit hot, sweaty and tired even after a short period. If you plan to visit a convention in the summer, make sure to pick an outfit with light materials that will go well with the temperature.

Using face or body paint

The use of face or body paint is a common mistake that many new to cosplay make. Most of the paints don’t last that long and will soon start to run and look quite streaky, as well as clogging up the pores. Alternatively, one of the zentai suits or nylon stockings can be painted to create the desired look. Also, face powder can be applied to create a lighter look that is less likely to run.

The Wheel of Destiny

Are we the product of our actions, or do the dictates of destiny control us? Do we get everything by effort, or does fate have a different story to tell? Read on.

PK Mahanandia, an artist from Delhi, was sketching portraits of people for a modest fee. Along came Charlotte Von Schedvin, intrigued by the claims of a gentleman with ruffled hair, and dark mustache, that he could sketch in 10 minutes.

Flashback years ago: Little Mahanandia from Orissa, India, was told by his mother that he would marry a girl from Royalty, from a faraway land, the possessor of a musical ear, and the owner of a forest. She would belong to the Sun Sign Taurus.

Present Era 1975 A.D., New Delhi: Charlotte was not pleased with the rendition of the portrait. She came back a day later, but wasn’t satisfied. Offhand Mahanandia asked her if she owned a forest, and if she was a Taurean. She replied in the affirmative.

She had come from Sweden to India along the Hippie trail of the 70’s, running across Turkey, Iran, and Afghanistan. She, along with Mahanandia, visited the Sun Temple in Konark, which has the famous giant stone wheel. Charlette exclaimed in surprise, that she had a similar miniature version of the wheel, back home in Sweden.

He promised her that he would come to Sweden, but being an artist of modest means, he bought a bicycle. From thereon, started his journey of love, on his bicycle, along the hippie-trail across the various countries that Charlette traversed. He worked as an artist drawing portraits for people, who shared money, food, and shelter with him. Those days, in the 70’s, one did not need a visa to travel across many of these countries.

Afghanistan, a landlocked country surrounded by mountains, was a peace-loving country, with a taste for music, art, and culture. He would traverse 70 kilometers (approximately 40 miles every day)on his bicycle till his legs hurt. He finally reached Germany, and from there, took the train to reach his destination in Sweden.

Charlotte helped him get over the cultural shock he experienced in Sweden, was accepted by her parents, and he married her, all for love-that love, as per him, had not diminished since 1975, when the now 64-year-old gentleman got married to Charlotte. They have two children; her piano continues to play the tune of eternal love. They have their forest; he continues to sketch, and they live happily ever after.

So coming back to the question, are we the product of our actions, or do the dictates of destiny control us? Maybe both- Little Mahanandia being told of his musical Princess, the owner of a forest, and believing it, Charlotte relating to the miniature version stone wheel of the Sun Temple of Konark, as part of her collection, and the coming together of the two individuals in Delhi.

However, without his action of cycling across countries, would they have got married? Who knows? Who can explain the inexplicable? It was all just for love.

Mind Mapping for Creating Characters

Whether you consider it using flow charts, whiteboards or even just free association, Mind Mapping has been around for some time now. People have used it for taking notes, brainstorming, and problem-solving. A Mind Map is a tool used to visually organize information or ideas. As a writer, it can be used for solving writer’s block or creating a workable outline. Today I am going to show you how to create a character sketch.

Character sketches can be very basic or incredibly detailed. It can include eye and hair color or blood type and your heroes first kiss. Many writers go online and look for pre-made character sketches that include hundreds of questions that may not apply to your work. This is where the idea of a mind map comes in handy.

For those who are not familiar with the process, don’t worry creating a mind map is not complicated. It can be done on a piece of paper, a whiteboard or using software programs. It doesn’t have to be expensive. There are several FREE programs that will do an excellent job, including xmind.net, mindmaple.com, and freemind.sourceforge.net. Some of these programs have paid versions, but as a writer, the free versions will do everything you need.

To create a mind map on any subject there are 4 basic steps.

Step 1 – Start by writing a single concept in the middle of a blank page.

Step 2 – Add related ideas to this concept and use lines to connect them.

Step 3 – Branch off each of these ideas to expand and create new thoughts.

Step 4 – Use different colors, symbols, and images to make each branch unique.

To help visualize this process I will use one of my own characters as an example. Every character you create will be different, but if you use these points as a starting place, it will be much easier.

My starting point is always very specific. I use my character’s name and a photo of what I think he or she will look like. Why do I add a photo? Because as the saying goes, “a picture IS worth a thousand words.” Personally, I put the name and photo inside a red circle at the center of the page, like a bullseye.

I add new ideas to focus on around my character. Each idea is placed in its own circle and connected by a wavy line. Why a wavy line? Because straight lines are boring and analytical, I am trying to tap into the creative side of my brain. I will also use a different color for each circle and the line that connects it, for the same reason.

I focus on six main points with each character. These include Family, Friends, Work, Skills, Physical and Secrets. At this point, it might be hard to come up with a photograph for each category, but you can use symbols like a question mark for the section that says Secrets.

This is where the fun begins. Under each main point listed, I include 5 additional sub-ideas. For example, under Family, I would list Mother, Father, Siblings, Other and History. Each of these would also have their own circle, and I would color that circle the same as the primary idea Family.

I can already hear someone saying this won’t work for me, my character’s parents are dead, or my character is an orphan. So? This is only to spark ideas. If the mother is dead, this will remind you of that and be a memory for your character to ponder about. If she’s not, you can describe what he liked or disliked about her the most.

The same idea applies to Siblings, if he has them he can tell stories of when his brother did this, or his sister did that. If he never had one, did he ever wonder what it would be like to have a brother or sister?

You might wonder why I included the word Other. Whether your character’s parents are living or not at some point someone else had a major impact on his life. That could be a babysitter, a scout leader or a teacher. All of us are created by those we have interacted with.

History would include things like who was the black sheep of the family, are all the women in this family short, have there always been anger issues? These are the things the character himself may not even realize affect his (or her) way of thinking.

I could write an entire article on how your character’s family affects the way they act or think or believe. That’s kind of the point of a mind map, you can go as deep as you want. By keeping it simple, (one word at a time) it allows your mind to keep filling in the blanks. Don’t believe me? Just say the word Mother out loud and see what images and thoughts pop into your head.

Most of the categories I listed are obvious, but I do want to take a moment to talk about Secrets. Every person on the planet has them and if you think you can create a character without them, you are sadly mistaken. It could be as simple as they never learned to swim, or as dramatic as they killed their own sister. This is also a good place to include habits. For example, if you wrote Taps, it could remind you when he gets nervous he always taps his fingers. If you wrote the word Ring, you would know she twists her ring when upset. You don’t have to write the whole reason why she twists her ring just write the word to keep your imagination going.

Key points to remember:

1st point – Keep is simple. One word at a time. You are not writing the story you are capturing ideas to include in the story.

2nd point – Use color. Bright, vibrant colors stimulate the mind. The more stimulated the mind, the easier it is to be creative.

3rd point – Use curved lines to connect thoughts. Why? Because if you just use straight lines, the brain gets bored quickly.

4th point – Add images whenever possible. Why? Because if a picture is worth a thousand words, then 10 pictures are worth ten thousand words. By using a word AND an image you engage both sides of the brain without limiting your potential.

Once you start using mind mapping to write, ideas will flow one after another. It’s actually very hard to have writer’s block if ideas come so fast you can’t keep up. It may not solve all your writing problems, but it will make things easier.

Lawyerizing Imagineering

In 1967, The Walt Disney Corporation filed a copyright for a term that combined the word imagination with engineering. At some point after they received the copyright from the U.S. Copyright Office, they used the word and its meaning in their animation business. Then, Disney filed and received a trademark on the term from the U.S. Patent and Trademark office. The Disney Corporation owns the term, and when they use it, you will often see the registration symbol ® behind it.

The term, coined before the Walt Disney Corporation existed, traces back to the 1940’s. Disney attorneys successfully “lawyerized the term.” In this article, I use the terms “lawyerize” and “lawyerizing,” which I found listed in the online Urban Dictionary as trending new terms. I did not conceive those terms, but they pair well with the point that I make about how an idea, a reality, and even a word can be protected even though someone else conceived those things. In other words, when your “magic happens,” you may not own the concept, the reality, or even the terminology. By the way, by placing magic in The Magic Kingdom®, Disney created another lawyerized trademark.

Magic means that something mysterious happened. We do not know how it happened. We all benefit from the reality of Walt Disney’s vision for producing and providing public entertainment. Visit their parks, view their films, experience Disney magic for fun, and especially do that for your young children. But, don’t mess with Disney copyrighted and trademarked stuff. The power of lawyerizing protects their entertainment, art, engineering, and intellectual property. The Disney Corporation has copyrighted and trademarked many terms associated with their creations.
