The Blue Nowhere



Streetwise cop Frank Bishop has been charged with the job of halting the mounting body count. He enlists the help of Wyatt Gillette, a young hacker who himself has fallen on the wrong side of the law. They must stalk this faceless criminal through both the real and the virtual universe, combining their old and new world skills to beat this mastermind. But how do you stop a man who knows your every move? You go into the blue nowhere . . .




The Blue Nowhere



The color blue has been important to my work for a while, but specifically as representative of water from the coastline of Grand Cayman. For this new body of work, I pointedly researched the metaphorical and historical relevance of blue. Although still referential, the pieces are more suggestive of open space (water and sky) or as liminal space where they meet. This is the blue seen through the open window or porthole: everywhere, yet nowhere.


Good morning. One joy of sports is the anticipation for an event you know is going to be memorable. Another joy is a memorable event that occurs without anticipation, totally unexpected, out of the blue. Like Baker Mayfield magic.


A notable number of iPhone users have experienced a truly peculiar happening with their iPhone and Siri after updating to the latest versions of iOS; the iPhone may start talking seemingly out of the blue.


Well i have read all the replies and believe me none of them are as weird as mine lol.My phone was charging on a table near where i was reading a book quietly when out of the blue Siri beeped, i looked up and it said : I thought so so i said : You thought what ? and it replied: I was thinking of chocolate, sometimes that happens and i was like WTF !!!So now you all think i am mad but it really happened lol


Located in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, just outside of Bryson City, NC is a road, that literally goes to nowhere. No, we're not kidding, you follow the road for about 8 miles from Bryson City into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The road continues until you get to a tunnel, and then, it just abruptly ends.The road is called the Road to Nowhere by local residents, and not only does it have an incredibly interesting, if not sad history, but it makes for a really unique modern day hiking trail. Recently, we decided to visit the Road to Nowhere, more formally known as Lakeshore Drive, and we explored the road and some of the nearby hiking trails.What you need to knowLocation: Bryson City, NCRoundtrip Distance: Varies, see details below.Difficulty: Easy to StrenuousHandicap Accessible: The road and tunnel are, but not the trails.Dog Friendly: Dogs are allowed on the road and in the tunnel, but not on the trails.Features: Historic old road and tunnel, old homesites, creek, and views of Fontana LakeDirections: From downtown Bryson City, head northwest of of downtown on Everett Rd. Follow Everett Road as it turns into Fontana Road, and then crosses into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and becomes Lakeview Drive. Follow Lakeview Drive until it ends at a parking lot, and the trailhead for Lakeshore Trail.Recommended Gear: Good hiking boots or shoes, Daypack, Dayhiker First Aid Kit, Sunscreen, some snacks, plenty of water and one or more flashlights (for the tunnel).if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[250,250],'blueridgemountainlife_com-medrectangle-3','ezslot_9',320,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-blueridgemountainlife_com-medrectangle-3-0');if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[250,250],'blueridgemountainlife_com-medrectangle-3','ezslot_10',320,'0','1']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-blueridgemountainlife_com-medrectangle-3-0_1');.medrectangle-3-multi-320border:none!important;display:block!important;float:none!important;line-height:0;margin-bottom:15px!important;margin-left:auto!important;margin-right:auto!important;margin-top:15px!important;max-width:100%!important;min-height:250px;min-width:250px;padding:0;text-align:center!important;width:100%Table of ContentsThe Road to Nowhere Bryson City NCRoad to Nowhere VideoRoad to Nowhere Loop HikeRoad to Nowhere Bryson City NC Historyif(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[970,90],'blueridgemountainlife_com-medrectangle-4','ezslot_4',340,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-blueridgemountainlife_com-medrectangle-4-0');The Road to Nowhere Bryson City NCYou can read all about the history of the Road to Nowhere, formally called Lakeshore Drive in the history section below. Long story short, when lake Fontana was created by flooding, old Highway 288 was flooded with it. The National Park Service promised to build another road, through Great Smoky Mountains National Park. For many reasons, it was never completed.What remains today is the construction that was completed, including a fairly long tunnel (1,200 feet) that you can walk through near the beginning portion of Lakeshore Trail. Don't worry, if tunnels aren't your thing, there is a bypass trail you can take.if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[300,250],'blueridgemountainlife_com-box-4','ezslot_12',260,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-blueridgemountainlife_com-box-4-0');If you're there to see the road, you can basically just drive to the parking lot, and walk through the tunnel and back. But if you're visiting to hike, there are a number of options.We would recommend the short 3.2 mile loop hike.Road to Nowhere VideoThis video show the beautiful scenery along Lakeshore Drive, during the Fall. Due to the amount of people at the tunnel, we did not go into the tunnel in this video. We're hoping to do a video of the tunnel soon!


The loop hike will take you onto three different trails: Lakeshore Trail, Goldmine Loop Trail, and finally Tunnel Bypass trail. You'll begin at the parking lot and trailhead, and head towards the tunnel on Lakeshore Trail.The tunnel is generally pretty clean, but use your flashlight to watch where you are walking. There is sometimes debris, leaves, and even manure or dog feces. Decorating the inside of the tunnel is lots of graffiti. On cloudy days, it can be a bit dark too, so the flashlights come in handy.if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[580,400],'blueridgemountainlife_com-large-leaderboard-2','ezslot_8',550,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-blueridgemountainlife_com-large-leaderboard-2-0');Just past the tunnel, the paved road ends ... congratulations, you just arrived at nowhere :-). The real Lakeshore Trail begins here. This trail continues for nearly 35 miles and ends at Fontana Dam. Don't worry, for the loop trail, you won't be going that far.


It's not your fault if your relationship comes to an abrupt end (or any end). Still, it can sometimes leave you wondering what happened. Did you miss any signs? Was there something you could have done? It's the most human thing in the world to ask these questions after an out-of-nowhere breakup, but you don't have to beat yourself up over it. You deserve a relationship that comes with only fun surprises (like that your partner has a king-sized bed). You're not alone for being sad about a breakup, but the good news is there are ways to pick yourself back up.


Getting dumped out of nowhere doesn't mean you have to write your former partner off forever. You get to decide if this event makes you hate them or if you're open to being friends (or somewhere in between). It's OK to be angry and not want to see them again, but don't let anyone else tell you how you have to feel about them.


Getting dumped out of the blue can be extremely painful. One moment, you're having a nice evening with your partner, and the next, it's over. It can often feel like breakups like this are impossible to get over since you didn't have any warning signs. If that fear has taken hold of you, know that it's totally normal, but also know that with the help of these nine mantras, you'll be able to recover.


In a letter to Arno Cammerer, Deputy Director of the Service, Charles Peterson, Assistant Chief Park Service Landscape Architect, questioned on November 1, 1932 why the surveys and land acquisitions for Shenandoah and the Skyline Drive were being terminated at Jarmans Gap and not continuing through to Rock Fish Gap, eight miles to the south and connecting with US #250, the east-west Jefferson Highway. The question was certainly a valid one for Peterson to raise: the proposal to construct the Blue Ridge Parkway was almost a year in the future, and the terminus at Jarmans Gap would have left visitors in the middle of nowhere. The Skyline Drive was to be a dead-end road.


You might call it gloominess or being down in the dumps. While you could briefly feel a little down for no clear reason, you can often trace the sadness that comes with a blue mood to specific circumstances.


If you have the so-called blues, you might feel sad or tearful, want to spend time by yourself, and lack your usual energy or motivation. These feelings usually tend to be pretty mild, though, and they generally pass before too long.


The cloud usually lifts, though, especially when you remind yourself you need to focus on responsibilities like work or childcare. You might continue feeling blue for several days, perhaps longer, but you can usually work around this mood to get things done.


Like nearly all the young men here for happy hour they were in casual slacks and tie-less dress shirts and wore the ubiquitous insignia of Silicon Valley - corporate identification badges on thin canvas lanyards around their necks. These two sported the blue cards of Sun Microsystems. Other squadrons represented here were Compaq, Hewlett-Packard and Apple, not to mention a slew of new kids on the block, start-up Internet companies, which were held in some disdain by the venerable Valley regulars.


She was about to find the pay phone when she glanced up and saw a young man enter the bar and wave at her. She knew him from somewhere but couldn't quite place him. His trim but long blond hair and the goatee had stuck in her mind. He wore white jeans and a rumpled blue work shirt. His concession to the fact he was part of corporate America was a tie; as befit a Silicon Valley businessman, though, the design wasn't stripes or Jerry Garcia flowers but a cartoon Tweety Bird.
