The Articles section of the site houses a database of art and photography tips and short articles that members have written. The idea is that this section of the site will form a knowledge-base of articles on different subjects that can easily be sorted and viewed in one place. Members are encouraged to upload new articles, in order to contribute to the database and to pass on their top tips, knowledge and experiences. Members and Guest visitors to the site can rate and comment on the articles which Members have uploaded to the database. Rating and commenting on the individual articles helps to highlight the best and the most popular ones - making it easier for Members and Guest visitors to quickly sort the articles by the most viewed; those with the highest ratings; articles with the most comments and a number of other fields, in order find the most useful ones for their purpose.

Forums for discussing art, photography and other topics of general interest

It seems that discussion forums are 'old hat' these days and forums-based websites are considered, by many, to be a relic from the age or the dinasours!! No matter... artfreaks.com was originally - (in the first decade of the 21st century, by the way!) a forums-based website - with a gallery tagged-on for good measure. Now, with the Articles, Blogs and Downloads areas of the site, artfreaks.com is so much more than that - but the Forums are staying. Some people still like them... If you don't, then please do feel quite free to ignore them completely!

    • Of course, we can all find an article or three that fit our own view - and those that don't agree with us, can equally find as many alternative articles or scientific papers to back their own views... Anyway, this is one that makes perfect sense to me: blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/covid-19-policy-must-take-all-impacts-into-account That tells me why a lot of epidemic modelling is inadequate... (The only scientific models that I personally have any great faith in are those that are used for producing our weather forecasts...)   So, while we are at it, here's another paper that explains why a lot of so-called "research" produces false results: Why Most Published Research Findings Are False - John P. A. Ioannidis - 2005  
    • As I write this, I am looking at a figure of 33,509 deaths from Covid 19 so far... Worldwide... In a population of roughly something like around 6,000,000,000 people? So, again, very roughly, about one out of every 180,000 people on this planet? So far...?   Obviously that figure will be a whole lot higher by the end of the year. So... What's it going to do... Bring the normal average annual death rate of 60 million from various causes up to 60.1 million worldwide? Or maybe even 61 million worldwide??   I'm really sad about all of the people who have - and will die from Covid 19 - even me, if I happen to be one of the unlucky ones... Just as I am also very sad about the roughly 15 million people who will have already died so far this year from other causes: A plethora of other diseases and illnesses, starvation, murder, accidents, wars and well, believe it or not - natural causes, even? (60 million on average, per year, divided by the first three months of the year... I'm hopeless with maths but even I can work that one out.) And it's "maths," by the way - with an "s" - if you please!     Yes, SARS-CoV-2 (the so-called new coronavirus) is extremely contagious at the moment, because it is a new causative agent for disease in humans - (although not, obviously, in the bats or whatever other animal host it may have come from...) But I honestly don't believe that it is significantly more "deadly" than any of the other virus that causes flu-like symptoms - which, strangely enough, also happen to hit the elderly unfairly hard...   A sensible amount of social distancing, massive (albeit somewhat belated) investment in our health services, taking care of our immune systems - and TRYING not to cause too much unnecessary extra stress by totally destroying our economies in the meantime might be a big help in fighting the disease caused by this virus, I think...??     One final note... I am a miserable old so-and-so and I genuinely prefer writing, to actually having to talk to people... So you can bring on all the social distancing you like, as far as I am concerned!  
    • And for all of my dear Filipino and Filipina artist and photographer friends...   We don't usually hold an "exhibit..." We hold an "exhibition," OK? An exhibit is usually just one of many individual items, which may or may not be exhibited in an exhibition of several, or indeed, many other items.    Kasi...!!!        
    • To all my very dear American friends:   "Maths" is short for "mathematics," whereas... "math" is short for "mathematic." (sic.)   So, could we please put the "s" in the abbreviation for "mathematics?"   It's MATHS - not "math" - OK?!!      Thank you!!    
    • This makes lemmings seem sensible!! From the same article quoted in the post above: https://www.statnews.com/2020/03/17/a-fiasco-in-the-making-as-the-coronavirus-pandemic-takes-hold-we-are-making-decisions-without-reliable-data/

      Well... Something in the news today actually made me smile! A Financial Times reporter, in an article she wrote about the difficulties she was having when trying to use cash, after having lost her wallet... It seems that people in the UK these days won't touch cash with a barge pole. (In case it is contaminated...??!???)
      Whilst waiting for her replacement credit card to arrive, she had to ask her Dad for some help... (to make a payment for her, using his own credit card...)
      Hehe...!! Well, that's what Dad's are for!!!

      Well... 'Just finished a two month job working on a project off the coast of Somalia. This is usually a time for getting all excited about going home but, now, who knows when I will make it back there?
      I'm still at stage one: shock/denial - and the tragedy is only just beginning...
      Time for some prayers. And a little bit less of the old blind panic. And a lot more international cooperation, if you please?
