Het Zwaard van Radch

I finished reading the book Het Zwaard van Radch, the Dutch translation of Ancillary Sword by Ann Lecki, which I start reading last Friday after I bought it on last Thursday. By the fact that I finished the book in such a short time, it is clear that the book did captivate me. But it was also a lot because I wanted to know how the plot developed into something dramatic. The middle part had a lot of relational type of contents and felt kind like a detective. (Somehow the main character, Breq, made me think of Vera Stanhopefrom the TV series Vera.) Then at the end there was suddenly some dramatic action. Know I want to read the first book of the series.

Folding a circle into a triangle

This evening, I was playing with the round paper cover of an icecream, trying to fold it into a triangle and I noticed that the three folded parts came together at the same point. In a sense, did not surprise me, as I knew the triangle has many so called centers. (There is even an encyclopedia of it.) However, I have not been able to found the given center. Below an animation of folding the black circle into a red triangle and the grey circles representing the folded parts crossing at the same point.
