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.

This is fucked and stupid. 

I hope this isn’t true.    

Seems like an interesting idea, but ierno.

Idk, I really like this. Don’t know if it’s realistic to talk about changing the currency altogether, but I do dig these.

It is definitely an interesting idea. Looks more like other countries’ money a bit to me, as well (i.e. Canada, Euros). Yet, it’s distinctly American. I like the concept very much, just dunno how it’ll be in long-term…while we’re respecting the natives, we’re ignoring pre-twentieth-century…then again, assuming the coins are the same, that’s that…

It IS a good idea, I don’t know how well it’ll go over. The different lengths can be both convenient and annoying, and no one is gonna know what in the hell they’re doing when paying with anything anymore. XD

not a bad concept for the US.. but I feel like this is still too new and that it could be done… but just in the long future rather than now. This new concept is ahead of this decade as of now.

bluekindofmusic:

if you live in the US and have ever sent a message telling the recipient to kill themselves, you’ve committed the felony of encouraging suicide and, depending on the state’s laws (meaning, what class of felony it is), you could be looking at a fine of $25,000+ and 10+ years in prison, just for encouragement

and if they actually do it, you are legally responsible and, in some states, you can also be charged with manslaughter

do people not realize this or

Also important things that happened today with the US General Election:

blaidddrewg:

- Maine and Maryland have voted for marriage equality
- Minnesota DID NOT vote for banning marriage equality
- Washington has it on the ballot as well, but it hasn’t come in yet


- The first openly gay senator was elected (Tammy Baldwin, in Wisconsin)
- The first disabled woman veteran was elected (Tammy Duckworth, in Illinois)
- Sens. Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin and Richard “Rape is a gift from God” Mourdock were ousted.

Breaking News: Gunman Kills 12 At Colorado Dark Knight Rises Premiere [UPDATED]: A lone masked gunman who has been identified as 24-year-old James Holmes, armed with a rifle, a shotgun, and two handguns, entered a movie theater outside Denver, CO, this morning just minutes after the 12:05 a.m. premiere of The Dark Knight Rises began, killing at least 12 people and wounding at least 38.
A witness said Holmes entered the Aurora theater through the emergency exit door, “threw a canister across the theater,” unleashing gas, “then started shooting.” Another witness said movie-goers were confused when the shooting started because they thought the sound of gunfire was coming from the movie.
“We were maybe 20 or 30 minutes into the movie and all you hear, first you smell smoke, everybody thought it was fireworks or something like that, and then you just see people dropping and the gunshots are constant,” said witness Christ Jones, speaking to Denver ABC affiliate KMGH. “I heard at least 20 to 30 rounds within that minute or two.”
Another witness said, “He looked so calm when he did it.”
Holmes, was arrested outside the theater.
A search of Holmes’ apartment is under way; officials say it is “booby-trapped” with “very sophisticated” explosives and they could be there “for hours or days.” Five nearby buildings have been evacuated.
Holmes had no history with police other than a speeding ticket. He went to high school in San Diego, where his family still lives; he was studying for a Ph.D. in neuroscience at the University of Colorado Denver but withdrew last month.
Here’s what we know:
Warner Bros. has canceled the Paris premiere of The Dark Knight Rises: The company “is deeply saddened to learn about this shocking incident.”
Holmes’ mother told ABC News: ”You have the right person. I need to call the police… I need to fly out to Colorado.”
President Obama has called for a national day of reflection: ”Such violence, such evil is senseless. It is beyond reason… There are going to be other days for politics. This is a day for prayer and reflection.”
Obama and Romney have pulled their negative ads from Colorado airwaves.
The Denver Post has video from the aftermath of the shooting.
Fox News has released 911 calls from inside the movie theater during the shooting.
Among those killed was Jessica Redfield, an aspiring sportscaster who had blogged recently about her narrow escape from a shooting at a shopping mall in Toronto.
A man who claims to have been injured in the shooting has posted pics of his injuries online.
ABC is apologizing after correspondent Brian Ross incorrectly linked the shooter to the Tea Party.
[lat / gawker / dailyintel]

Escape one shooting, only to get hit in another one…and that’s only one leg of what’s breaking my heart — this entire thing, just, why…
RIP…and may those injured recover.
