Comment on Dr.STONE – 18 [Stone Wars] by Lenlo

 Cache   
So doing my best without spoiling anything, its like this. You know how we just spent 10 episodes or so to get Penicillin? And it was a good time, because each step was slow and felt earned? The progress was substantial, but never came off as "easy"? Well, in future arcs, Dr.STONE speeds that process up alot. Imagine we got Penicillin in... 5 episodes? To take an example from a most recent arc, they need to make a drone for aerial stuff. So what do they do? They make a drone... in 5 pages of manga content. (Thats not an exact number, just what it felt like). So they still use science to solve the problems and thats still the focus, but the science lacks the... depth and exploration it has in these early sections.

Britney Spears Reveals She Has ‘Self Esteem Problems’ That Cause Her to ‘Slouch’

 Cache   


Living legend Britney Spears has revealed that self esteem issues have caused her to slouch. Brit has turned to aerial yoga to help improve her posture.

“Body language is everything! The way you speak to yourself and carry yourself can effect[sic] your mood …. I have self esteem problems so I slouch,” she wrote on Instagram.

“These poses help me everyday become stronger and it’s quite fun doing them … I feel so different everytime I do it, cause I’m not used to the feeling of my back being out!!!!” she said.

“So basically what I’m going to do today with my gym coach is basically, arch my back,” she said. “And by hanging upside down it opens my back and enables me to breathe better and to open up and to feel better. So, here I go.”

Spears is a regular in the gym and posts many videos of her workouts. She also shared in June that she’s “working really hard” to lose weight.

Reflections on the Work of Reuben Wu

photo-eye Gallery Reflections on the Work of Reuben Wu Jamey Stillings
Photographers view the work of other artists using photographic processes through a unique and illuminating lens. This week, using his keen visual literacy and skilled eye, photo-eye Gallery Artist Jamey Stillings reflects on the work of Reuben Wu, currently on view at photo-eye Gallery.
 by Jamey Stillings 

Reuben Wu, AE 1144, 15 x 20 inches, Archival pigment print, edition of 10, $950

If you have yet to spend time with the photographs of Reuben Wu, please do so soon.

Photographers are both blessed and cursed when we encounter the work of fellow artists. By one measure, our visual acuity is refined and deep, having assimilated a vast aesthetic and historical lexicon of photographs throughout our lives – imagery that contextualizes new work we experience. But by another measure, this visual literacy interferes with our ability to observe new work on its terms with focus, curiosity, and naiveté. Instead of simple observation, we can easily be distracted by the technical.

Fortunately, Reuben Wu’s work manifests a visual sensitivity and finesse, which fuses with a refined aesthetic sensibility and technical mastery of his tools. Thus, we are freed to quietly be in the presence of each photograph appreciating it on its terms.


Wu’s work AE 1144, from the series, Aeroglyphs, places us in a different space than many of his other images. Instead of geometric light forms interacting with pristine, seemingly untouched natural landscapes, we encounter a scene that bears the unmistakable marks of human activity. The eerily glowing turquoise waters of the irregular canal, or ditch, are at once seductive and troubling. If we were to enter these waters, would they provide comfort and relaxation, or toxicity? Details along the water’s edge reveal information that, in theory, should help us discern scale, but these forms dissolve into a blackness where our ability to know what is geological or human-formed is masked. The twilight sky, with its panoply of colors and quiet drama, is inviting. Are we looking only at desert clouds or also the dissipating contrails of evening flights? While contemporary in the print’s vibrancy and hues, the surreal tones of water and sky, out-of-balance with how they would be seen in situ, evoke the mystery of Magritte.


Installation view of AE1144 and XT1768 in Aeroglyphs & Other Nocturnes at photo-eye Gallery 


Upon this scene, perhaps fully pre-visualized by the artist, but never experienced as a single moment, Wu scribes three central vertical parallel lines with the light of his drone. As with all light painting, these lines never exist in space to be seen by the naked eye. Instead, the open sensor, which replaces the sheet of film, collects the sum of his temporal activity. Thus, the landscape becomes a set or stage in which a performance occurs, but the results of this ephemeral series of events become apparent only in the finished image. While traditional land art leaves permanent or semi-permanent marks in the landscape, Wu’s art cannot be experienced except in the photograph.

Reuben Wu’s photographic vision – quiet, serene, contemplative, meditative, and formal – adds a valuable perspective to our collective photographic lexicon. Make the time to savor it.

Palo külastas Iisrael kõrbesse rajatavat hiiglaslikku tehnoloogiaparki

 Cache   
Ettevõtlus- ja infotehnoloogiaminister Urve Palo külastas täna Iisraeli lõunaosas asuvat Beer Sheva tehnoloogia- ja kosmoseparki. Tehnopargis töötab kokku üle 200 idufirma, mis kõik tegelevad kõrgtehnoloogiliste lahenduste väljatöötamisega. Kohalikud ettevõtjad vahetasid Eesti äridelegatsiooniga kogemusi riigi ja erasektori koostööst teadusarenduse valdkonnas. Samuti toimus kohtumine Iisraeli teadusministri Ofir Akunisega, kellega arutati pikemalt teadusarenduse, digitaliseerimise ja  kosmosetööstuse viimaseid arengusuundi. Iisraeli peaminister Benjamin Netanyahu on võtnud üheks prioriteediks ehitada Lõuna-Iisraeli riigile oma küberpealinn. Keset ümberringi laiuvat kõrbe asuvad Gav-Yami nimeline muljetavaldav tehnoloogia- ja kosmosepark ning Ben Gurioni ülikool, kus üle 20 000 tudengi õpivad arvutiteaduse, küber-, inseneri- ja kõrgtehnoloogiaerialadel. Liivaväljade keskmes asuvates kõrghoonetes töötavad Iisraeli idufirmad on tihedalt seotud ülikooli, riigiasutuste ja ka kohaliku sõjaväe organisatsioonidega. Samuti on siin oma esindused maailma tehnoloogiahiidudel nagu IBM, Dell, Oracle ja PayPal. Rohkem kui 2000 kohalikku ja välismaist IT-eksperti on koondatud piirkonda, kus seni inimasustus oli hõre ning leidusid vaid üksikud kõrbes rändavate beduiinide eluasemed. Iisraeli valitsus meelitab ettevõtjaid ja teadlasi siirduma tehnoloogiaparki, pakkudes neile maksusoodustui või muid toetusi, näiteks makstes töötajate palkadest märkimisväärseid osasid valitsuse poolt kinni. „Täna külastatud tehnoloogiapark pakub võrdluspilti Eesti 2000 IT-spetsialisti programmile. Eesti IT-spetsialistide programmi raames plaanime samuti toetada Eesti ettevõtteid, et nad saaksid värvata endale helgeid päid üle maailma. Plaanime finantseerida uute töötajate värbamist summaga, mis katab suurusjärgus 30% uue töötaja esimese kolme kuu palgast. Lisaks on Eesti riigi jaoks oluline investeerida eestlaste ümberõppesse, mis pakub võimalust omandada tasuta digivaldkonna eksperdi oskused. Meie pilootprojekt sai eelmisel aastal läbi ning järgmisel aastal hakkab juba umbes pool tuhat inimest õppima „Vali IT“ programmis,“ sõnas ettevõtlus- ja infotehnoloogiaminister Urve Palo. Minister Palo kohtus täna ka Iisraeli teadusministri Ofir Akunisega, kellega arutati pikemalt teadusarenduse, digitaliseerimise ja  kosmosetööstuse viimaseid arengusuundi. Iisraeli ministri portfellis on lisaks teadusarendusele ka tehnoloogia ja kosmose valdkond. Lepiti kokku ka kahe riigi vahelise koostöökokkuleppe allkirjastamine. „Oleme väga avatud koostööle Eestiga. Mul on tõeliselt hea meel tänase kokkusaamise üle. Tänapäeval on kõige suuremaks väärtuseks ei ole raha, vaid teadmised ja kogemused ning usume, et Eesti teadlastega oleks meil hulganisti  võimalusi teha koos teadusarenduse projekte. Järgmiseks plaanime tulla Eestisse ja leppida juba konkreetsemalt kokku,“ ütles Iisraeli teadusminister kohtumisel minister Paloga. Minister Palo juhitud äridelegatsiooni visiit kestab reedeni ning viib kümme Eesti ettevõtjat, EASi ning Kaubandus-Tööstuskoja esindajad Iisraeli. Äridelegatsioonis osalevad ettevõtted on Amisco, Datel, Ecomatic, Estonia Piano Factory, Hedman Partners, TGS Baltic, Primus Legal, Tamro Baltics, Velma Mööbel ja Zell Aronovich.

Parim väikeettevõttest praktikakoht on Gurmeeklubi

 Cache   
Parima väikeettevõttest praktikakoha tiitli pälvis isikupäraste hõrgutiste loomisega tegelev Gurmeeklubi OÜ, kellele andis täna auhinna üle ettevõtlusminister Liisa Oviir. „Gurmeeklubi on igati imetlusväärne ettevõte, kes võtab igal aastal praktikale sama palju inimesi, kui selles ettevõttes töötab. Kui seda eeskuju järgiks ka suurettevõtted, poleks meil probleemi noorte väljaõppe vastavusega tööandjate soovidele või noorte suundumisega tööturule pärast õpinguid,“ ütles Oviir. „Gurmeeklubi on hea näide vastutustundlikust ettevõttest, mis tahab panustada ühiskonda. Loodan, et seda eeskuju hakkavad järgima paljud!“ sõnas minister. Gurmeeklubi tootmisjuhi Kaire Kase sõnul on Parima väikeettevõttest praktikakoha tunnustus neile väga oluline eelkõige seetõttu, et ka väikeettevõtete panust praktikakohtade loomisel märgatakse ja väärtustatakse. „Meil on hea koostöö mitmete erinevate koolidega praktikantide leidmisel, kuid loodame, et kondiitri, pagari ja kokaeriala praktikahuvilised märkavad meid senisest veelgi rohkem ning leiavad ka ise tee meie juurde praktikale.“ Eesti Tööandjate Keskliidu esmakordselt korraldatava Parima praktikakoha konkursi eesmärgiks on tunnustada ja tõsta esile neid Eesti ettevõtteid, kes panustavad märkimisväärselt kutseõppuritele ja tudengitele praktikavõimaluste või õpipoisiõppe pakkumisse, aidates lähendada kooliharidust ja reaalse tööturu vajadusi. Parima praktikakoha konkursi tunnustused anti välja kolmes kategoorias: parima praktikakoha tiitli pälvis ettevõte ABB AS, parima regionaalse praktikakoha tiitli sai Narva ettevõte Fortaco Estonia OÜ ning parim väikeettevõttest praktikakoht on 24 töötajaga Gurmeeklubi. Konkurss viidi läbi Haridus ja Teadusministeeriumi tööturu ja õppe tihedama seostamise programmi tegevuste „Praktikasüsteemi arendamine kutse- ja kõrghariduses“ ning „Õpipoisiõppe laiendamine“ raames. Programmi eesmärk on viia õppimisvõimalused vastavusse tööturu vajadustega. Konkurssi rahastavad Eesti riik ja Euroopa Sotsiaalfond. /28.03.2016/

Majandusministeerium kutsub külastama Põhja-Euroopa suurimat robootikaüritust Robotex 2015

Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeerium ja MTÜ Robotex sõlmisid koostööleppe, millega ministeerium toetab Põhja-Euroopa suurimat robootikaüritust ning selle raames toimuvat tehnoloogianäitust ja töötubasid.   „Eesti majanduse kasvumootoriks saab olla  tehnoloogia rakendamine erinevates sektorites. Selleks on aga vaja nutikaid inimesi ning haridussüsteemi, mis pakuks piisavalt võimalusi heal tasemel tehnoloogiahariduse omandamiseks,“ ütles majandus- ja taristuminister Kristen Michal.   Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeerium on Infoühiskonna arengukava 2020-ga seadnud eesmärgiks kasvatada Eesti IT-sektoris töötavate inimeste arvu aastaks 2020 võrreldes aastaga 2013 50% võrra.  Selle eesmärgi toetamiseks on ministeerium suunanud 8,5 miljonit eurot ning viib ellu Euroopa Sotsiaalfondi programmi, mille sihiks on inimeste konkurentsivõime tõstmine eeskätt info- ja kommunikatsioonitehnoloogiliste oskuste omandamise kaudu.   „IT-sektori tööjõupuuduse vähendamiseks on oluline luua paindlikud täiend- ja ümberõppe mudelid ning suurendada vastuvõttu ülikoolide IKT-erialadele. IT-spetsialistide järelkasvu kindlustamisel on aga populariseerimistegevustel märkimisväärne roll. Robotex on suurepärane võimalus noortes tehnikaerialade ja teaduse vastu huvi tekitamisel ning insenerierialadele õppima suunamisel,“ kommenteeris koostööd Robotexiga minister Michal.  „Olen mitmel aastal Robotexil lastega käinud ja soovitan kõiki, kel huvi ja pisut vaba aega, huvitavat ja hästi korraldatud võimalust kasutada,“ lisas minister.   4 .– 6. detsembril Tallinna Tehnikaülikooli spordihoones toimuvale tehnoloogia suurüritusele on oodata üle 650 roboti ning 15 000 pealtvaataja. Viieteistkümnendat korda toimuva Robotexi põhialadeks on erinevad võistlused robotite vahel. Läbi aegade on võisteldud joonejärgimises, labürindi läbimises, võrkpallis, köieronimises, toa koristamises, jalgpallis, merepäästes ja teistes ülesannetes.   Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeerium toetab Robotex 2015 Euroopa Sotsiaalfondi programmist „Digitaalse kirjaoskuse suurendamine“.   4/12/2015

MKM toetab IT-huvitegevuse kättesaadavust

Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeerium ning Vaata Maailma Sihtasutus allkirjastasid lepingu IT-alaste huviringide juhendajate pilootkoolituseks.    Lepingu raames töötatakse välja spetsiaalne koolitusmetoodika ning katsetatakse selle sobivust sihtrühma peal, kelleks on näiteks lapsevanemad, IT-tudengid, noorsootöötajad või teised kogukonnaliikmed. Koolitustele on oodatud kõik, keda huvitab töö lastega ning kes oskavad arvuteid kasutada tavakasutaja tasemel.   „Eesti IT-sektori tööjõupuuduse vähendamiseks on vajalik astuda konkreetseid samme – suurendada vastuvõttu ülikoolide IKT-erialadele, jätkata IT-Akadeemia initsiatiivi, toetada IKT-valdkonna doktorante ning teadustegevust jne. Kuid IKT-spetsialistide järelkasvu kindlustamiseks on oluline panustada ka tehnoloogiaerialade populariseerimisse, mille üheks võimaluseks on IKT- alase huvihariduse pakkumine“ rääkis Majandusministeeriumi IKT oskuste koordinaator Ave Lauringson.    Vaata Maailma Sihtasutusega koostöö raames piloteeritakse esmalt mõnekümne inimese peal, kuidas varasema pedagoogilise hariduseta inimesed saavad hakkama huviringi juhendaja rollis. Projekti eduka läbiviimise korral on soov sarnaseid koolitusi jätkata veelgi suuremas mahus.    “Teame, et on palju lapsi, kes väga tahaksid NutiLaborites ja teistes IT-huviringides osaleda, kuid uute ringide avamise üheks hädavajalikuks eelduseks on juhendajad”, selgitas IT-huviringe NutiLabor korraldava Vaata Maailma Sihtasutuse juhataja Kristi Kivilo. “Tahame näidata, et IT-ringe saavad juhendada kõik, kes lapsi või tehnoloogiat ei karda”, lisas ta.    IT-erialadele õppima asujate uuringust (TÜ, TTÜ; 2015.a) selgub, et kõige suurem mõjutaja just IT-õpingute kasuks otsustamisel oli varasem praktiline kokkupuude tehnoloogiaga – 36% küsitletutest pidas esimest arvutit ning isetegemise võimalust murdepunktiks IT vastu huvi tärkamisel. Uuringu poliitikasoovitustes tuuakse riigipoolsete sekkumisvõimalustena välja just huviringide kättesaadavuse suurendamise koolide, kõrgkoolide ja kogukonna kaudu. Samuti ringijuhendajate koolitamist, ringitöö läbiviimist toetavate vahendite soetamist ning töötasu.    „Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeerium panustab järgmisel Euroopa Liidu programmeerimisperioodil IT-haridusse 8 miljonit eurot. Meie jaoks on oluline anda lisafinantseerimise kaudu enda osa nii IT-spetsialistide järelkasvu tagamisse kui ka juba töötavate inimeste konkurentsivõime kasvu“, kommenteeris Lauringson.    Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeerium viib Euroopa Sotsiaalfondi 2014-2020 perioodil ellu programmi „Digitaalse kirjaoskuse suurendamine“, mille üheks eesmärgiks on IKT hariduse populariseerimine ja kättesaadavuse suurendamine.     Täpsem info koolituste kohta: http://www.nutilabor.ee/juhendajakoolitused

You Sunk My Battleship

 Cache   
Preface

People who make military policy and amateurs who follow it alike are in something of a vacuum when it comes to naval warfare.  While the Navy is a very large share of the United States Defense Department budget, there have been so few skirmishes in the past fifty years or so that it is hard to get a reality check on the multi-billion dollar expenditures involved. The few incidents which have occurred, meanwhile, have taken on disproportionate importance.  

While some naval history is too distant to be of much use, from the ramming battles between glorified rowboats of the Greeks, to the days of sails and cannons, it is fair, at least, to look at the experience of World War II, the last full fledged blue sea naval campaign in world history.  This experience has informed much of the current conventional wisdom regarding naval warfare, and while the lessons learned in World War II need to be updated to reflect technological advances that have taken place since then, they are too recent to safely ignore.

Among other things, World War II taught the lesson that the heavy armor of a battleship was no match for modern offensive weapons. 

As the Wikipedia article linked above explains:
Battleships were the largest and most complex, and hence the most expensive warships of their time; as a result, the value of investment in battleships has always been contested. 
As the French politician Etienne Lamy wrote in 1879, "The construction of battleships is so costly, their effectiveness so uncertain and of such short duration, that the enterprise of creating an armored fleet seems to leave fruitless the perseverance of a people". The Jeune École school of thought of the 1870s and 1880s sought alternatives to the crippling expense and debatable utility of a conventional battlefleet. It proposed what would nowadays be termed a sea denial strategy, based on fast, long-ranged cruisers for commerce raiding and torpedo boat flotillas to attack enemy ships attempting to blockade French ports. 
The ideas of the Jeune École were ahead of their time; it was not until the 20th century that efficient mines, torpedoes, submarines, and aircraft were available that allowed similar ideas to be effectively implemented. The determination of powers such as Germany to build battlefleets with which to confront much stronger rivals has been criticised by historians, who emphasise the futility of investment in a battlefleet that has no chance of matching its opponent in an actual battle.
Large Warships In Existing Navies

Today, there are only two ships of the battleship class in the world, both in the Russian Navy, only one of which is in active service, the 28,000 ton Admiral Nakhimov commissioned in 1988 is currently undergoing refit and is out of service, and the 28,000 ton Pyotr Velikiy, of the same class commissioned in 1998 is in active service.  

The 14,564 ton Zumwalt class destroyer of the U.S. Navy, the largest warship in the U.S. Navy that is not an aircraft carrier or non-combatant logistics ship, and is is arguably misclassified as a destroyer deserves a battleship designation. Just three Zumwalt class destroyers have three have been built (and no more have been ordered). One was commissioned in 2016, one was commissioned in 2019, and one is awaiting a commission later this year. It cost $7.5 billion per ship of total cost to build and has been severely criticized:
Mike Fredenburg analyzed the program for National Review after Zumwalt broke down in the Panama Canal in November 2016, and he concluded that the ship's problems "are emblematic of a defense procurement system that is rapidly losing its ability to meet our national security needs." Fredenburg went on to detail problems relating to the skyrocketing costs, lack of accountability, unrealistic goals, a flawed concept of operations, the perils of designing a warship around stealth, and the failure of the Advanced Gun System. He concludes:

"The Zumwalt is an unmitigated disaster. Clearly it is not a good fit as a frontline warship. With its guns neutered, its role as a primary anti-submarine-warfare asset in question, its anti-air-warfare capabilities inferior to those of our current workhorse, the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, and its stealth not nearly as advantageous as advertised, the Zumwalt seems to be a ship without a mission."
Indeed, only twenty navies in the world have surface warships (including aircraft carriers, but not transport ships) larger than a frigate: U.S. (111), Japan (48), China (33), Russia (20), India (14), France (14), United Kingdom (7), Norway (5), Italy (4), Taiwan (4), Netherlands (4), Denmark (3), Germany (3), South Korea (3), Egypt (3), Saudi Arabia (3), Spain (2), Brazil (1), Thailand (1), and Morocco (1).

Only seven of these countries (China, Russia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Thailand and Morocco) would plausibly be U.S. naval warfare adversaries in the foreseeable future (while many of the remaining thirteen countries would likely be allies of the U.S. in an future naval warfare in their region). These seven plausible adversaries have 62 large surface warships ships combined. Of these only China and Russia are really serious concerns militarily and they have 53 large surface warships combined.

The Russian fleet's large ships, moreover, are split between several global regions that are distant from each other in some case (Northern, Baltic, Black Sea and Pacific). The aircraft carrier, the battleship, one smaller cruiser, and six destroyers are in Russia's Northern fleet. One smaller cruiser and five destroyers are in Russia's Pacific fleet. One of its smaller cruisers and one of its destroyers are in Russia's Black Sea fleet. Three of its destroyers are in Russia's Baltic fleet.

Several other plausible U.S. naval warfare adversaries such as Iran and North Korea have submarines but no large surface combatants.

Currently, the U.S. has 20 aircraft carriers (11 "super carriers" of 100,000 tons or more, and 9 amphibious assault ships which can carry helicopters, Osprey aircraft, Harrier aircraft or F-35B aircraft of 40,000-45,000 tons), Italy has 2, Japan has 4, France has 4, Australia has 2, Egypt has 2, and Brazil, China, India, Russia, Spain, Thailand and the United Kingdom each have one. In all there are 42 aircraft carriers in active naval service in the world.

Five aircraft carriers (one each from the U.K., China, Russia, India and France in order of size) are between the size of a U.S. super carrier and the smallest U.S. amphibious assault ship ranging from 42,000 to 65,000 tons (and only four of these from the China, Russia, India and France, and the ten U.S. super carriers, allow for something other than a vertical landing). The other eighteen aircraft carriers range from 11,486 tons to 27,100 tons (eleven of which are restricted to vertical takeoff and landing aircraft such as helicopters and the MV-22 Osprey). All twenty-seven carriers under 42,000 tons and two larger aircraft (one from the U.S. at 45,000 tons and one from the U.K. at 65,000 tons) are restricted either to short takeoff vertical landing aircraft such as an F-35B or a Harrier, or to vertical takeoff and landing aircraft.

Eleven more carriers (including two that are only VTOL carriers) are undergoing sea trials or ordered: the U.S. 3, China 3, and South Korea, India, Italy and Turkey one each.

Currently, the U.S. has 22 cruisers (10,000 tons each) and Russia has 4 (one battleship with 28,000 tons and three cruisers with 12,500 tons) in active service. In all there are 27 cruisers in active naval service in the world. The U.S. cruisers are virtually indistinguishable from its destroyers and slightly inferior to them as they are older designs.

Currently, the U.S. has 69 destroyers (including 2 of the Zumwalt class), Japan has 44, China has 32, Russia has 15, India has 13, France has 10, the U.K. has 6, Norway has 5Taiwan has 4, the Netherlands has 4Germany has 3, Denmark has 3South Korea has 3Saudi Arabia has 3, Italy has 2, Egypt has 1, Morocco has 1, and Spain has 1. The largest destroyer in active service (other than the two Zumwalt class destroyers in active service) is 10,290 tons and many of which are considerably smaller. Some of the destroyer class ships are larger, more capable ships actually called frigates in an effort to make comparisons comparable. All ships classified as frigates for these purposes are under 5,000 tons, although a few particularly capable frigates between 4,000 and 5,000 tons are classified as destroyers. There are 219 destroyers in all of the world's navies combined.

In all there are 42 aircraft carriers over 11,000 tons and 7 other surface combatants over 11,000 tons in naval service in the world. Of those, 20 aircraft carriers and 2 other surface combatants are in the U.S. Navy and 1 aircraft carrier and 4 other surface combatants (one battleship and three cruisers) are in the Russian Navy. The other navies of the world have 21 aircraft carriers, only 10 of which are more than VTOL helicopter carriers. There are 244 other surface combatants bigger than frigates in the world in active naval service (of which 67 are in the U.S. Navy and 15 are in the Russian Navy).

The Japanese Naval Experience

The case that really brought this home for the Japanese was the sinking of the battleship Yamato.  This 71,000 ton ship with massive 18 inch guns was tough.  It  had previously survived a hit from a torpedo delivered by a U.S. submarine on Christmas Day in 1943, and two bombs that hit it in October of 1944, in the Leyte Gulf.  Two more 36,000 ton Japanese battleships, the Fuso and the Yamashiro, were sunk by naval gunfire and torpedoes in that same October battle.  Bombs damaged the 39,000 ton Japanese battleship Nagato in the battle of the Leyte Gulf badly enough to remove it from action. Ultimately, air power prevailed over the big guns and heavy armor of the pinnacle of the battleship era.  On April 7, 1945, the Yamato was sunk by carrier based U.S. aircraft and it took 2,498 Japanese sailors with it.  The 32,000 ton Japanese battleship Ise (already removed from service nine months earlier by a mine), and Japanese battleships Hyunga and Haruna were sunk by carrier based U.S. aircraft in July of 1945.

Japan had already lost its 32,000 ton battlecruiser Kirishima to 16” naval gunfire from the 47,000 ton American battleship Washington in 1942 in one of the last of the battles that went according traditional naval models of close range ship to ship combat, in this case, at a range of a mile and a half.  The 28,000 ton Japanese battleship Kongo was sunk by a submarine in November of 1944.  Its three sister ships were sunk by U.S. aircraft in World War II.

The American Naval Experience in World War II

Americans remember Pearl Harbor.  Yes, this carrier based air attack was a surprise.  But, a heavily armored hull did not prevent this attack from sinking the 32,000 ton U.S. battleship Arizona and three other battleships.  Four more battleships were seriously damaged, the 29,000 ton American battleship Nevada among them, although the Nevada was ultimately returned to service and survived further battle damage on multiple occasions.  Few naval strategists before Pearl Harbor had realized how vulnerable the fleet was to aerial attack.

The 33,000 ton American battleship Idaho ran aground off Okinawa in June of 1945.  American battleship Pennsylvania,  a sister ship of the Arizona, was taken out of action by enemy aircraft in August of 1945.

The 45,000 ton American battleship Indiana did exhibit the resilience in the face of damage which battleships are legendary for notwithstanding a mixed experience in real life.  It survived both a collision and a hit by a kamakazi pilot in 1944, and serious storm damage in 1945, yet survived until decommissioning in 1963.  The 45,000 ton South Dakota similarly sustained and survived repeated battle damage. The 56,000 ton American battleship Iowa likewise survived serious damage from shore fire sustained in March of 1944, and the 47,000 ton battleship Washington survived a 1942 torpedo hit from a Japanese submarine and a 1945 friendly fire incident.

The German Naval Experience in World War II

Germany’s 51,000 ton battleship the Bismark found its fate at the bottom of the sea in May of 1941.  The British Royal Air Force damaged the 40,000 ton German battleship Gneisenau to the point that it never again was useable as a battleship in 1942.  Sister German battleship Scharnhorst, however, survived in the face of a seemingly never ending barrage of hits sustained.

The Italian and Vichy French Naval Experiences in World War II

Both Italy and Vichy France both saw battleships destroyed in port before they were ever launched.  

The planned 48,000 ton battleship Clemenceau was destroyed in its French port during a bombing raid in August 1944.  The 36,000 ton battleship Dunkerque, in the hands of the Vichy French, was damaged sufficiently to be taken out of action, and lost one in seven of its crew members, in July of 1940, by a combination of British warship attacks and torpedoes in two separate incidents.

The 30,000 ton Italian battleship Duilio wasn’t actually sunk, but a British bombing raid in November of 1940 took it out of service for about a year, and the ship served only a brief secondary role in World War II thereafter.  The 46,000 ton battleship Vittorio Veneto was taken out of action by British aircraft in 1941, then by a submarine, and then 1943 by another aircraft.  The 47,000 ton Italian battleship Littorio was taken out of commission by British aircraft by June of 1942.

The Spanish Naval Experience in World War II

The 16,000 ton battleship Espana was sunk by a “friendly” mine in July of 1937 during the Spanish civil war, killing a third of the sailors on board.

The British Naval Experience in World Wars I and II.

While it predates World War II, it is worth recalling that the 22,000 ton British battleship Dreadnought (the second of that name launched in 1906) which became synonymous with the very notion of a battleship, sank only one enemy vessel, a German submarine, in all of World War I.  It achieved this end not with its ten 12” guns, but with a methodology as old as Greek naval warfare.  It rammed it.

German dive bombing planes took the 30,000 ton British battleship Iron Duke out of service on October 17, 1939.  It Italian airplane’s torpedo took the 38,000 ton British battleship Nelson out of service for a year on September 27, 1941.  The British lost the 42,000 ton battleship Prince of Wales in December of 1941 to an attack by Japanese aircraft, after having suffered serious damage from naval guns, which was repaired, earlier that same year.  The 33,000 ton British battleship Queen Elizabeth was removed from service when an Italian frogman bombed it while it was in harbor that same month.

Fenway Golf Club is currently seeking a Student Intern for the 2020 season. The following is a brief job description along with a summation of future construction plans and club history. Under the Superintendent's supervision the Student Intern will participate in the golf course maintenance department’s day-to-day activities, while maintaining a high standard of quality to meet the expectations of a demanding membership. The Student Intern will work with existing management staff in the planning, scheduling and supervising the maintenance of the: putting greens, tees, fairways, roughs, bunkers and associated support facilities.

The successful candidate must be self-motivated, organized, dedicated, detail-oriented and able to work in a team environment. Fenway is ranked in the Top 100 of Classic Golf Courses, built and designed by A.W. Tillinghast in 1924. In its continual quest to maintain the quality of its facilities, the membership retained the services of renowned Golf Course Architect, Gil Hanse, to perform "a gentle restoration" of the original Tillinghast design. Hanse, aided by Tillie's original plans and aerial photographs of the course (believed to be taken in the late 1920's) painstakingly went about restoring many of the green and bunker complexes originally created by Tillinghast and orchestrated the removal of hundreds of trees in order to reestablish the sightlines originally envisioned by the master himself. Gil continues to serve as the club's architect and is entrusted to ensuring that this Tillinghast treasure loses none of its glorious luster. Fenway is currently working with Gil Hanse and has completed Phases 1 and 2 of a Master Plan Update. Phase 3 will start this fall. The Master Plan Update consists of: - Putting green enlargement - The addition of bunkers and movement of existing bunkers - Adjusting fairway contour lines - The addition of forward tees on 14 holes - Rebuilding and lengthening back tees on 7 holes - Fairway drainage as needed on approximately 14 holes - Irrigation relocation as needed based on putting green enlargement - The creation of a sod nursery from cores for putting green enlargement

Dear Sir/Madam,

I propose the scheme “Anatoliy Aleksenko’s Mechanism of renewal of energy” the AUTONOMOUS engine of the FUTURE which is able to create the efficiency of more than 1(ONE) and to have almost perpetual motor life.
It doesn’t need COOLING SYSTEM, it doesn’t use the FUEL but some lubricant, it doesn’t need any FILTERS and it is able to work “openly” underground, underwater, in GASEOUS ATMOSPHERE and in the OPEN SPACE. It is reversible, can work without transmission.
It’s a COLD MECHANISM which doesn’t need heating and then COOLING. Neither heat of deserts nor the Antarctic cold can hinder it’s work.
It’s production is not expensive, it is simple in operation. Any transportation (AUTO, AIR, SHIP’S, RAILWAY and other) will become profitable with this mechanism. It can not only compete with electric stations, atomic included but to give them odds. Neither the earthquakes nor other natural calamities frighten it. This is IDEAL for (ELECTRO-GENERATOR, BUS, TRUCK, SUV & VAN, HELICOPTER, DIRIGIBLE, EKRANOPLAN, UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE, JET PACK, HOVERCRAFT, AMPHIBIAN, SUBMARINE, REFRIGERATOR, RAILWAY, METRO, RAILGUN, LASER, DESALTER OF SEA WATER, OPEN SPACE,SMOG…).
It can save the WORLD CIVILIZATION from the GLOBAL increasing of the temperature (HOTBED EFFECT, FLOODS, WATERSPOUTS…); oil pollution; energetic crisis; industrial breakdown; toxic gas ejection (CO, NO, CH); further destroying of the Ozone laver of the Earth; progressing AIDS (during the temperature increasing and organism dehydrating), and also diseases cancer.
In case you are interested in this INFORMATION and you are going to become the Co-participant of the PROJECT, you are WELCOME to SEND SUGGESTIONS in Russian language to the address:

Aerial shot of a bowl of creamy carrot soup

There is such a variety of thickeners to choose from, it is often difficult to know the most appropriate one to use. In this module we answer:

  • How does the level of viscosity influence the thickener?
  • Which is the best thickener to formulate with, when a product demands a high level of process tolerance?
  • What influence do thickener properties have on the sensory characteristics of food?
  • How can a thickening starch help to optimise shelf stability in a frozen product?

With a curriculum taught by scientists for scientists, Texture University, a part of Tate & Lyle’s TEXTURE-VANTAGE® Expert Systems, is the first starch-based scientific education program of its kind. Our scientists have a full curriculum of Texture University courses that will help you start from the basics and learn to tackle even the hardest formulation challenges. A new session is introduced quarterly and attendees will receive a certificate of completion at the end of each module.

Urban Aerial Imagery Collection and Other Things

 Cache   

An awesome group of OpenStreetMap PH volunteers and drone enthusiasts visited Lupang Arenda in Taytay, Rizal to collect aerial and street-view imagery. With the help of Barangay Sta Ana officers, we were able to conduct the survey smoothly. I was part of the drone team and our goal was to provide high-resolution imagery for mapping buildings, roads and other attributes using OSM.

As my first urban aerial imagery collection experience, it was a trial by fire. I used to have that confidence with my skills but those unpredictable factors and unpreparedness made me question my skills as a drone pilot. It was challenging but at the end of two days, the images were collected, the high-resolution orthophoto, digital elevation models were produced and I learned to be prepared even in unpredictable times.

July 7 Fieldwork:

gras Team photos from @GOwin

  • I did no pre-flight checklists except charge the batteries and identify take off points because I was complacent. So, as expected, I had a hard time with almost everything.
  • I used Pix4D mapper to create the flight plan and fly the drone. A few minutes after take off, the controller was disconnected from the drone itself! Good thing is that I have a very reliable spotter with me to check if the drone is still flying. It was still flying the flight plan I loaded on the application. Other than my trusted spotter, there’s no way for me to identify the drone's location and I can’t control it to return home. I was in a state of panic and had to call the other team to ask for advice. They said to wait it out it will surely come back. But seriously, who can relax in these dark times?
  • I was flying in an open space but it’s difficult to maintain a visual line of sight of the drone because of the buildings. Also probably decrease the connectivity between the drone and controller.
  • After 15 minutes, lo and behold! The drone and the controller connected, I immediately pressed Return-To-Home (RTH) and retrieved the drone with only 30% battery left. No photos were taken. Worst 15-minutes of my life.
  • Tried again twice using my spare two (2) batteries but it failed. It was only able to capture the images when the drone and the controller are connected.
  • I was only able to take 16 photos in total. Hurraaay life!
  • Actions / Steps to resolve the problem:Updated the drone to the latest software, read forums why it happens.

gras Failedt Pix4D mission

October 12 Field Work

gras *Team photos taken by @maningsambale

  • I was prepared and anticipated the loss of signal during flight. I was able to fly in Dumaguete with no problems months before this 2nd field work.
  • Same thing happened. It disconnects immediately and continues following the flight plan.
  • I modified Pix4D mapper settings so the drone can still take photos even without the drone-controller connection.
  • This, however, affected the duration of each flight. Originally from three(3) flights to cover half of the area, I did more.
  • A portion of the area was on a no fly zone. The flight was cancelled and RTH. Luckily, there is a good internet connection so I was able to unlock the drone I was using in under 10 mins.
  • At 3:00pm, we finally covered all area!

There’s a gap in the upper-left portion of the image. It was because I couldn’t find the drone (VLOS is sooo bad) I had to abandon the mission.

gras Taking photos like a baus! I used DJI Mavic Pro 2 for this and the drone-controller connectivity is sooooooooo good! Totally better than my experience using Phantom 4 Pro gras Total of ten (10) flights to cover LA

What happened at the Nov. 5, 2015 Council meeting? Council passes a request for immigration reform, a trans day of remembrance and raises parking fees. Defers aerial ad prohibition and new fee for fencing.

 Cache   

This meeting is 2 hours and 49 minutes long.  If you are going to watch the meeting, you will get a lot more out of the meeting if you know what is under discussion. If you are going to watch it, you can probably watch in double time and not miss much context. To access the agenda, agenda analysis and my commentary on the agenda, follow this link.

I am providing my summary of the meeting below. However, be advised that I only hit the high points and report on what is important to me, so you may want to watch it for yourself. I do not even attempt to form an opinion on each zoning bill and normally only report on those that are controversial or are bills disapproved by the Planning Commission. Also, if you view the minutes of the meeting you can find out from the official record what happened without watching. Unfortunately, the minutes are often not posted until a week later. You can access the minutes at this link.

Followings Pat Nolan's introduction and summary of what is important that is on the agenda, the meeting is graveled to order at timestamp 8.55. Following the prayer, pledge and ceremonial presentation of a recognition of a member of the armed forces, the Council gets down to business with consideration of elections and confirmations at timestamp 23:08.

Elections and confirmations
Election of School Board members: There are four nominees. A nomination speech if offered by the nominating council member for each of the candidates and then each candidate addresses the Council.  Player-Peters was elected with the votes of 26 council member. The runner-up who got 14 votes was Kevin Stacy, a licensed teacher who has worked as a schools administrator for Metro, Clarksville and Williamson County. His area of specialty is administering English as a Second Language programs. There really does not seem to be an ideological consideration in this vote. Some of the conservatives voted for one but some conservatives voted for the other and the same among the more progressive council members.
There were several other position in other agencies filled but none are of very much interest to the general public. Seats were filled on the Industrial Development Board, which is of interest to a lot of people in segments of the business community, but I do not know enough about the candidates to have much interest who won the seats. Also seats were filled on the Community Education Commission.
Resolutions and Bills on Public Hearing.  The Council begins Public Hearing at timestamp 1:14:00.
The resolutions are exempting businesses from the minimum distance requirements for obtaining a beer permit. The bills are zoning bills. On bills, public hearing is occurring on Second Reading of the bill. None of the bills have been disapproved by the Planning Commission. Very few people speak on any of the items on Public Hearing. This is the only item on public hearing I find of interest: 
Bill BL2019-3   authorizes Metro to opt into the historic properties tax abatement program under state law and would establish a historic properties review board. This would give a property tax break to historic properties that are restored. I support this. I am a strong advocate of property rights and do not want to prohibit someone from tearing down a historic property but also want to see old significant buildings saved.  If we can incentivize people in preserving historic properties I favor it. This passes and is referred back to the Planning Committee for more work.
Resolutions. The consideration of resolutions begins at timestamp  1:43:19. Most resolutions are lumped together and passed on the "consent agenda."  If there is no dissension then the resolution is considered to have passed unanimously by all present.  Any member may have an item taken off of the consent agenda or have an abstention or "no" vote recorded. They may avoid voting in favor of a item on consent by being out of the room when the vote is taken. At the start of consideration of resolutions, Councilman Glover has Resolution RS2019-86 and Resolution RS2019-87 pulled off of consent.  I am so proud of him for this action. For way too long council members who don't agree with super liberal politically correct memorializing resolution have, nevertheless,  let them just slid on through without opposition.  It is time for that practice to end! These two resolutions are explained below.
Resolution RS2019-86  "request that the President of the United States and Congress of the United States enact comprehensive immigration reform and give Nashville’s qualified undocumented neighbors a path to citizenship and an opportunity to fully participate in the life of our community without fear." The resolution's sponsor, Councilman Robert Nash, speaks in favor of the resolution. At Large Council Member Zulfat Suara, Council Member Sandra Sepulveda, and Council Member Delishia Danielle Porterfield speak in favor and no one speaks in opposition. The vote is by machine and is 34 in favor, 3 abstentions, and 3 not voting.

While someone could have voted "no" or at least have explained why they were voting "abstain,"  I am not unhappy with this outcome.  The bill is so vaguely worded that one could reason that their understanding of what they want in comprehensive immigration reform is different than what someone else wants. I am sure President Trump's favors comprehensive immigration reform if it gave him adequate funding to build a wall and funded more immigration agents and courts and made some other changes to immigration policy.  Also, this really does nothing. It changes no policy and spends no money. It simply expresses the view of those who voted for it. If I had a vote, I would have voted "abstain."  See timestamp 2:03:07- 2:10:14 to see the deliberation. When the minutes are posted, I will report how each member of the Council voted.

Resolution RS2019-87 recognizing November 20, 2019 as Transgender Day of Remembrance in Nashville and Davidson County, Tennessee.The sponsor, Councilman Withers speaks in favor. No one speaks against it. I do not blame anyone for not speaking in opposition, but my objection is that we should not be pandering to the advocates of identity politics and that any loss of life is important and that there are many other groups of people at least, if not more, deserving of a day of remembrance. I express this view in this essay:How about a day of remembrance for American military killed in action? For policemen killed in action? For firemen? For babies killed by abortionist? For Americans killed by illegal aliens? For ....
This resolution changes no policy nor spends any money and amounts to nothing more that those who voted in favor of it recognizing that date for that purpose. The vote is taken by machine and is 34 in favor, 2 abstentions and 4 not voting. Once the minutes are available, I will post the record of how members voted.
On the above two resolutions, I was unsure why there was a machine rather than voice vote. On the second one, the vote was taken by voice vote, and the Vice Mayor had moved to the next item of business and then came back to the resolution and had a machine vote.  He then explained this was because a Council rule requires a recorded vote on any resolution with a "no" vote or an abstention.
 Bills on Second Reading. These are the ones that I find of interest.

Bill BL2019-4 prohibits aerial advertising.  I see no logic for this bill and if I served in the council I would vote against it.  It is deferred one meeting..
Bill BL2019-31 would require a permit for all new fencing. This was deferred one meeting.  
Bills on Third Reading. This is the only one of interest.
Bill BL2019-1 raises the parking violation fee for most parking violations from $11 to $25. It passes. With the scarcity of parking places and the increase in the value of a parking space it seems reasonable to increase this fee. This will help fund parking meter modernization.

Covenant in Ezekiel, Part 3

 Cache   

Read the series.

A Valley Full of Dry Bones

The first vision in Ezekiel 37 is the best known in the book. If people are ignorant of everything else in the book, they are often aware of the valley of dry bones, though frequently they have no idea what it means. It surely doesn’t help when commentators apply the whole passage to the Christian church.

The bones stretch out over a wide area, and the prophet is given an aerial view of them. When the inspection is over, God asks Ezekiel, “Son of man,1 can these bones live?” (Ezek. 37:3). The prophet is wise. He knows that the answer to all such questions lies with the living God. So, the Lord gives Ezekiel a command to speak over the bones, and as He speaks the words of God the bones came together and flesh covered them (Ezek. 37:7-8). As so often in the biblical record, the Lord does not bypass the human instruments He has created to exercise dominion upon earth. Ezekiel speaks for God and God’s power stands behind the words.

State Estimation, Control, And Planning For A Quadrotor Team

 Cache   

Teams of aerial robots have the potential to become effective information gathering instruments, specially in the fields of infrastructure inspection, surveillance, and environmental monitoring due to their ability to operate in environments which may be difficult or impassable for ground robots. This dissertation addresses the problem of developing a team of autonomous quadrotors that can be quickly deployed and controlled by a single human operator.

First, we describe the system design and algorithms for robust single robot autonomy and demonstrate it with experiments in a variety of environments. The developed robot uses onboard cameras for state estimation and is capable of autonomous navigation through natural and man-made environments at high speeds.

Next, we develop the system architecture and components to allow a single operator to deploy, control, and monitor a team of robots.

In order to focus on the multi-robot coordination problem, the robots used for this part utilized GPS for state estimation and required known maps of the environment for obstacle avoidance, which limited the usage of the system to known outdoor environments.

Finally, we combine the robots from the first part with this multi-robot framework. The main challenge here is that due to using onboard sensing for state estimation, each robot has a different reference frame for its state estimates, typically with the origin at the starting pose of the robot while the high-level planner for the team requires all the robot state estimates to be in a common reference frame.

We propose a method that uses the relative position/bearing measurements of nearby robots detected using the onboard camera to solve this problem. The complication in this method is that these relative measurements do not contain any identity information since all the robots in the team are equivalent and look the same. In order to fuse these unlabeled measurements and estimate the states of the robots in a common reference frame, we used the Coupled Probabilistic Data Association Filter (CPDAF) and developed an approximation to reduce its computational complexity enabling online estimation with a team of up to 15 robots.

Football 2019: Dartmouth 9, Harvard 6
Gallery View

If you play football for 146 seasons, you are bound to experience bitter losses. But few in the annals of Harvard gridiron lore have been as heart-ripping, soul-sucking, and gut-tearing as the last-play, 9-6 defeat literally snatched from victory suffered at the hands of Dartmouth on Saturday at Harvard Stadium.

It was all the more galling for being so improbable. To overhaul the Crimson, the Big Green, which had trailed all game, in the last minute had to go 96 yards, the final 43 traveled on a Hail Mary pass from quarterback Derek Kyler, deflected by Harvard defenders, and caught by receiver Masaki Aerts. That one play negated a brilliant defensive effort by the Crimson, which had kept the Football Championship Subdivision’s leading offense out of the end zone until the final gun.

Dartmouth’s victory runs its record to 7-0 and 4-0 in the Ivy League—the exact marks attained by Princeton, whom the Big Green plays next week in a de facto championship showdown. (See “Coming Up,” below.) Harvard drops to 4-3 overall and 2-2 in league play; the loss effectively eliminates the Crimson from the Ivy title race.

This defeat was a stale madeleine that evoked a remembrance of losses past. There was a last-play field goal by Dartmouth that won the 1971 game for the Green, 16-13. A last-play field goal by Penn (preceded by a questionable roughing-the-kicker penalty) that gave the Quakers a 23-21 win at Franklin Field in 1982. More recently, in 2012, there was Princeton’s 29-point, fourth-quarter comeback that provided the Tigers with a 39-34 victory. Switching sports, this loss dredges up sad recollections of the 2011 Ivy League men’s basketball playoff, which Princeton pulled out on a buzzer-beater 63-62.

But for sheer devastation, this was as bad as it gets, mainly because the Crimson controlled the game until the last minute. Harvard’s Tim Murphy, who has been coaching for 33 seasons (the last 26 in Cambridge), was asked in the postgame media conference if this was the toughest loss of his career. “It definitely is,” he answered. (Pouring salt in the wounds, it came against his lifelong friend, Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens.) “To say that we got our guts ripped out might be the understatement of the century.”

 

The game was an old-school slugfest, one you might have seen in 1919. Both offenses were held at bay by rugged defenses. It may have helped Harvard a bit that Dartmouth’s first-string quarterback, Jared Gerbino, a terrific power runner, left the game for good near the end of the first half with a leg injury, to be replaced by Kyler.

Harvard scored first—a rarity this season—on a 41-yard field goal by senior Jake McIntyre early in the first quarter. Harvard 3, Dartmouth 0. In the second quarter, McIntyre missed on a shorter try, after which Dartmouth’s Connor Davis pumped through a 44-yarder with 59 seconds left in the first half. At the break, it was 3-3. The Crimson had controlled much of the action, outgaining the Green 195 yards to 107.

The second half started as a rerun. After Harvard reached the Dartmouth 18, its drive stalled and McIntyre drilled a 38-yard field goal. Harvard 6, Dartmouth 3. And there the score sat, for almost 25 more minutes. McIntyre did miss on another field-goal try, the result of a bad snap. (Clearly, those two missed field goals would figure into the outcome.)

Cut to 1:31 left in the game. Harvard has just failed to make a first down on a third-and-one run by junior Devin Darrington, after which Crimson junior Sean McKeogh has placed a punt on the Dartmouth eight. On first down, Kyler is sacked by Harvard sophomore defensive tackle Truman Jones, who strips the ball. Crimson senior defensive lineman Brogan McPartland recovers on the 10. Game over, right?

Dartmouth has two timeouts left. It uses the first after Darrington runs to the six. On the next play, Darrington runs right and attempts to reach the end zone. He gets as far as the two, and here he makes a fatal mistake. Instead of staying in bounds and keeping the clock moving, he goes out of bounds, stopping it. Now the Green does not have to use its final timeout. This may have been the knife edge of the denouement. “Clock management, somehow in the heat of passion, in the heat of a game, can go out the window real fast,” Murphy would say later, disconsolately.

On the next play Darrington is thrown for a four-yard loss. Now Dartmouth does use its final timeout.  Fourth and goal for Harvard, with 1:06 left. What to do? Kick a field goal and take the points, thus taking a tying Dartmouth field goal off the table? Murphy opts to go for the touchdown.  “The thought was, you don’t want to get a kick blocked,” he said later. “At the end of the day, they’re gonna need a touchdown to win the game. And they have to kick the extra point. So mathematically you’re looking at the clock. They’ve got 59 seconds to go how many yards?” On the next play, Darrington is stopped for no gain. Dartmouth ball.

To get downfield, Kyler cannily throws medium-length passes to wideouts Hunter Hagdorn and Drew Estrada. A 22-yarder to Estrada moves the ball to the Harvard 43. Eight seconds left. Kyler runs up behind center and spikes the ball, which stops the clock. Six seconds left.

Now it is desperation time. Kyler takes the snap and somehow eludes several Harvard rushers. Finally, he throws it into the end zone. At the goal line, Harvard junior defensive back Isaiah Wingfield has a bead on it. He leaps—and is jolted by teammate Wes Ogsbury, who also is going for the ball. “We had a bunch of guys deep ready to knock the ball down,” said Ogsbury, the team captain. “We’re all looking down to the line of scrimmage. It looks like [Kyler] got sacked twice. He heaves one up. We’re all trying to make a play on it. It takes the wrong couple of bounces. We wanted it to bounce down but it bounced up, for whatever reason.” It bounces, for whatever reason, into the hands of Aerts. Touchdown! Game over! Dartmouth 9, Harvard 6.

“Every Thursday it’s the last play of the practice,” said Murphy of the Hail Mary pass-defense drill. “It always ends with a spike [batting down the ball]. Every Thursday at 6:30 p.m.”  He shook his head.

What does Murphy tell his players after such a crusher? “There’s not much solace,” he said. “But if you’ve given it everything you possibly can, you’ll have no regrets. Plenty of pain. But no regrets.”

 

Tidbits: With 1.5 sacks against Dartmouth, senior defensive lineman Brogan McPartland now has 7.0, leading the Ivy League in the category….Junior Devin Darrington rushed for 102 yards, his third game this season with more than 100….Saturday’s attendance, 20,112, was the largest for a non-Yale game at the Stadium since September 19, 2008, when 21,704 saw the Crimson defeat Holy Cross 25-24.

Coming up: On Saturday Harvard travels to New York to play Ivy rival Columbia. Kickoff: 1 p.m. The game will be telecast on SNY, streamed on ESPN+, and broadcast on WRCA 1330 AM, 106.1 FM and 92.9 FM-HD2, and on WHRB FM 95.3. The Lions are 2-5 overall and 1-3 in Ivy League play. Harvard has won the last 15 in the series, including 52-14 last year in Cambridge. In a rivalry that began in 1877, Harvard leads 62-14–1.

Meanwhile, only a few blocks away, at Yankee Stadium, unbeaten Princeton will be playing unbeaten Dartmouth. (A rematch of last year’s battle of unbeatens at Princeton, won by the Tigers 14-9.) This is believed to be the first time that two Ivy games will take place at the same time in the same city—either a stroke of genius or poor planning. Actually, the game is part of College Football’s 150th anniversary celebration. It will be played 150 years to the week of the first contest. Princeton was a participant in that game, on November 6, 1869, in New Brunswick, New Jersey. (On November 7, 1869, no doubt, came the first calls for the abolition of football.) The Tigers were defeated by Rutgers 6-4. For football’s first half-century, the Ivy League schools set the template—huge stadiums, overemphasis, braggin’ rights, frenzied recruiting (yes, even at Harvard), eligibility squabbles, academic probation, tinhorn dictator coaches—for what became a national mania, one that has afforded millions of followers equal measures of pleasure and, as we saw this week, pain.

  

A CENTURY AGO: THE ROAD TO PASADENA, GAME 6

On November 1, 1919, Harvard withstood an aerial barrage from visiting Springfield and achieved two aims: victory and maintaining its shutout streak. In the triumph, back Eddie Casey, A.B. 1919, scored two touchdowns. Knowing that they could not match the Crimson’s power, the Chiefs (as they then were called) attempted 31 passes—an astonishing number for the time—and completed 11. One almost resulted in a touchdown, but it was batted down by Harvard captain Billy Murray, A.B. 1918. (Casey and Murray had served in the military during World War I.) Maybe we needed Murray defending against the Hail Mary this past Saturday!

 

The record so far:
September 24    Harvard 53, Bates 0
October 4           Harvard 17, Boston College 0
October 11          Harvard 35, Colby 0

[중국] 11월 6일 경제동향, 상하이경찰 중국 국제 수입 엑스포 기간동안 상하이에서 드론 운행 금지 등

 Cache   

중국 상하이(上海)경찰에 따르면 11월 2일 오전 8시부 터 11월 11일 자정까지 상하이에서 드론 운행을 금지할 계획이다. 

이 조치는 11월 5일부터 10일까지 열리는 제2회 중국국제수입엑스포(中国国际进口博览会) 기간 동안 상하이의 영공을 안전하게 유지하기 위한 목적이다.

 

중국 농업용 드론제조업체인 엑스에이지(XAG)에 따르면 광저우에서 열린 연례 기술 컨퍼런스에서 최신 XAG XP2020 모델을 출시했다.

이 모델은 정밀 스프레이, 향상된 배터리 및 포지셔닝, 장애물 회피, 야간 운영 및 지형 추적과 같은 새로운 기능을 갖춘 것으로 분석된다.

 

중국 드론업체인 이항(Ehang)에 따르면 미국 증권시장에서의 기업공개(IPO)를 통해 $1억달러를 모금했다. 광저우에 본사를 둔 이항은 나스닥에 EH로 표시될 예정이다. 

이항은 여객 및 물류운송의 상업적 사용에 중점을 둔 AAV(autonomous aerial vehicle) 전문 기술기업이다. 자율항공 승용차를 시험할 수 있도록 중국 민간 항공국(Civil Aviation Administration)의 승인을 받은 최초의 회사이다.

[중국] 이항, 미국 나스닥에서 기업공개를 통해 $1억달러 확보

 Cache   

중국 드론업체인 이항(Ehang)에 따르면 미국 증권시장에서의 기업공개(IPO)를 통해 $1억달러를 모금했다. 광저우에 본사를 둔 이항은 나스닥에 EH로 표시될 예정이다. 

이항은 여객 및 물류운송의 상업적 사용에 중점을 둔 AAV(autonomous aerial vehicle) 전문 기술기업이다. 자율항공 승용차를 시험할 수 있도록 중국 민간 항공국(Civil Aviation Administration)의 승인을 받은 최초의 회사이다.

현재 광저우에서 저고도 실험을 위해 무인 항공기로 출퇴근하고 있다. 이항은 세계 최초의 전기 무인 드론 택시 서비스의 개시를 준비하고있다.

이항은 유럽 최대 통신사 인 보다폰(Vodafone)과 전략적 파트너십을 맺고 아제르바이잔 항공(Azerbaijan Airlines)과의 협력을 통해 세계적으로 명성을 얻었다. 

이번에 기업공개를 통해 확보된 자금은 주로 제품의 연구와 개발, 서비스/기술, 판매 및 마케팅을 포함한 5개 영역에서 사용될 예정이다.

특히 제품 용량을 지속적으로 확장하고, 도시 항공교통, 잠재적인 전략적 투자 및 인수를 위한 솔루션 개발에 사용될  방침이다. 글로벌 드론 산업분야에서 이항의 빠른 성장이 기대된다.

Dr. J. Michael McGrath Elementary School is in the area. Aerial video showed students and staff members evacuating from the school and boarding school buses.

An evacuation also was ordered for The Master's University campus.

At least two water-dropping aircraft were over the fire.

Crosby Blitz Beach in Crosby, England

 Cache   

The detailed masonry of prewar Liverpool is gradually being washed away.

Five miles north of Liverpool, what remains of the city before World War II is strewn across two miles of coastline. From pebble-sized remnants of bricks eroded by the adjacent Irish Sea, to large keystones of major civic buildings, the expanse of Crosby Beach is a stark reminder of the conflict that consumed the world in the middle of the 20th century.

Liverpool was one of the most heavily hit British cities by the German Luftwaffe, the Nazi air force. The blitz came in waves, with barrages beginning in 1940 and continuing throughout the war. In total, the Liverpool Blitz killed nearly 4,000 people, and rendered over 70,000 homeless. The German bombing was indiscriminate—banks, churches, single family homes—no structure was spared from the aerial onslaught.

In the rush to clear the streets and make the city livable, some of the rubble was shipped abroad as ballast, and much was carted out of town, to Crosby Beach, just to get it out of the way. There it was unceremoniously dumped, as a devil-may-care bedazzling of the seashore. While some report that the rubble was set there as a barrier to erosion, and others say the rubble may have been placed there to impede a potential German invasion by foot, there is no conclusive evidence for either claim.

Following World War II, Liverpool, like many British cities, found itself strapped for cash, and many areas hit by the blitz were merely filled in, turned into parking lots, or languished as piles of pulverized stone and splintered woodwork for decades. Since there was hardly money to get the city back on its feet, very little mind was paid to cleaning up the beach that had become cluttered with houses and civic structures deemed impossible to rebuild. Over the decades, the Irish Sea lapped away at the rubble, softening the crisp marble finishes of decorative pre-war design, and turning many of the proper, rectangular bricks into oblong red stones. While some of the rubble is broken and transformed beyond recognition, some pieces of humanity shine through: a gravestone; the shattered sign of a storefront; an old jumper, caught in the debris.

The rubble stretches from the banks of Crosby Beach up to the village of Hightown, though more crops up further north at Formby Point, part of the British National Trust, and where British soldiers prepared for the D-Day invasions. Though there are no formal demarcations of the site or the rubble’s origin, the expanse of the wreckage is a testament to the lives uprooted and overturned by the bloodiest conflict in human history.

3DEP Lidar Proposal for 2020

 Cache   

In October a partnership of Utah organizations submitted a proposal to the USGS 3DEP FY19/20 BAA for over 18,217 square miles for 2020 Lidar acquisition projects. A couple projects (i.e., Kane County [Greater Sevier Addition] and Strawberry River) have already begun.

While we’re months away from any preliminary or final funding decisions, the partnership is sharing this proposed project area map in advance in an effort to promote coordination between the partners and avoid duplication of effort in these project areas.

The proposed areas have the following square mileage: 3DEP Proposal

Projects Already Underway

  • Kane County (QL2) - 6,055
  • Strawberry River (QL1 and 4-band aerial photography) - 88

Proposed Projects

  • Wasatch Back (QL1 or QL2) - 1,103
  • Iron County (QL1 and QL2) - 3,067
  • NRCS (QL1 or QL2) - 2,706
  • Sanpete and Sevier Counties (QL2) - 2,397
  • Garfield County (QL2) - 2,891

A shapefile of the proposed Lidar coverage areas is available for download.

The Air Force's first stealth aircraft, which was retired a decade ago, was spotted flying over Nevada again

  • Not one, but two F-117s were photographed flying together over Tonopah Test Range in October.
  • The F-117, the Air Force's first stealth aircraft, was officially retired in 2008, but the service has hung on to a few of them, and they're still spotted in the air over the West.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

It's not a secret that the US Air Force is still flying the F-117 Nighthawk stealth aircraft at Tonopah Test Range (TTR) although the iconic Black Jet was officially retired from active service in 2008.

As explained in a detailed story, back in 2014, after a few videos and photographs had already appeared online, the US Air Force admitted that the Nighthawk was kept in a "Type 1000" storage at TTR, which meant that the type is had to be maintained until called into active service. Desert conditions of Nevada are perfect for maintaining the stealth jets in pristine conditions (due to the low level of humidity and hence, lower probability of corrosion), hence the reason to operate the enigmatic aircraft from TTR.

North Carolina schools use mapping tools to improve school safety

 Cache   
Students and teachers may participate in safety evacuation drills on a regular basis, but worrying about safety isn’t an educator or a student’s job, according to Hope Morgan, a technology official with the North Carolina Department of Public Safety. That’s why in 2016, in the midst of a rise in active shooter incidents, the state chose to develop two applications that generate safety plans and have mapped more than 2,400 K-12 and higher education facilities throughout the state  — potentially shaving valuable time off of responses and evacuations. School officials can upload information and schematics into the School Risk Management Planning Tool, or SRMP, to design risk management plans. Another application, called the State Emergency Response Application, or SERA, converts that data into detailed aerial maps and updates the representations in real time when changes are made in the planning tool. Public safety officials can use the tools to coordinate with school administrators […]

Seorang Melayu M'sia, Di Balik Pembinaan Royal Clock Tower, Makkah.

 Cache   
royal-clock-tower-makkah-aerial

KISAH ini diceritakan oleh Tuan Azmil Abrar, seorang Pengurus Pembangunan dan Kawalan Konten di TV Al Hijrah.
Ia berkisarkan tentang Tuan Wan Nazri Wan Aria, seorang Jurutera Struktur yang dipertanggungjawabkan sebagai Ketua Konsultan untuk pembinaan Royal Clock Tower, Makkah oleh sebuah syarikat terkemuka di German, SL Rasch.
Struktur binaan ini disifatkan sebagai the Miracles of Modern Engineering adalah mengkagumkan, dan kisah bagaimana seorang lelaki yang dibesarkan di Segambut, dan kemudian dipercayai oleh sebuah syarikat ternama German, adalah lebih mengkagumkan.
Kita ikuti kisahnya di bawah:
A MALAYSIAN LEGEND – FIND YOUR TURNING POINT
Siapakah lelaki muda, multi millionaire berusia 33 tahun di bawah ini? Mungkin ramai yang tidak mengenali beliau. Tetapi semalam adalah hari yang sangat mengujakan saya. Saya berpeluang untuk beliau yang saya sifatkan sebagai a Malaysian Legend, A Living Legend.
Nama beliau adalah Wan Nazri Wan Aria. Apa hebatnya beliau?
Royal Clock Tower, Makkah yang disifatkan sebagai the Miracles of Modern Engineering. (Boleh tonton pelbagai video berkenaan pembinaan Royal Clock Tower itu di Youtube). Dinyatakan di pelbagai tempat bahawa Clock Tower it dibina oleh sebuah syarikat terkemuka di German, SL Rasch.
Selain itu, projek pembesaran Masjidil Haram agar dapat memuatkan 10 juta jemaah haji juga telah disiap dirangka dan dirancang.
Berdasarkan kajian dilakukan, dapat diketahui bahawa individu yang dilantik selaku ketua untuk menjalankan projek Clock Tower berkenaan serta bertanggungjawab merangka pelan pembesaran Mekah adalah seorang anak muda dari Malaysia, bernama Wan Nazri Wan Aria.
Kebetulan dia sedang berada di Malaysia, maka kesempatan itu digunakan saya untuk bertemu beliau.
Kehebatan sebelum ini memang diketahui berdasarkan kajian. Tetapi setelah duduk berbual, banyak lagi perkara hebat diketahui mengenai individu ini.
Beliau berasal dari sebuah keluarga yang susah dan menetap di sebuah kawasan belum membangun di Kuala Lumpur. Bukan lulusan mana mana sekolah hebat. Hanya bersekolah biasa di Segambut. Kemudian menyambung pelajaran dan berjaya lulus Degree di dalam engineering dari UiTM dan pada mulanya bekerja di sebuah syarikat tempatan. Pada usia 25 tahun, beliau berasa tidak puas dan ingin mencabar diri.
Maka beliau meletakkan jawatan dan bertekad menyambung belajar peringkat Master di Germany menggunakan wang sendiri.
This is what i always said “all successful people had their turning point some point in life. We just have to make ours.
Mengapa Germany? Sebab beliau merasakan bahawa di situlah tempat paling utama dan paling mencabar untuk seseorang engineer di Dunia. Walaupun pada mulanya tidak pandai berbahasa Germany, beliau telah memaksa diri untuk belajar segera. Sebab semua pelajaran adalah di dalam bahasa berkenaan. Belajar Engineering dah susah, belajar peringkat Master dah susah, belajar bahasa german dah susah, apatah lagi belajar kesemuanya serentak!
But he did. And he did very well. Selepas berjaya mencapai keputusan yang cemerlang, pelbagai syarikat besar terutamanya di dalam otomobil berebut menawarkan beliau kerja. Namun semuanya ditolak beliau di atas minat beliau kepada Structural Engineering. Maka beliau telah memohon kerja di sebuah syarikat SL Rasch, sebuah syarikat Germany yang terkenal di dalam bidang structural engineering.
Pada mulanya, syarikat berkenaan tidak minat untuk mengambil beliau kerana mereka tidak percaya akan kebolehan engineer bukan dari Germany atau Eropah. Kerana bagi mereka, orang Germany paling pandai di dalam bidang engineering dan mereka sudah mempunyai ramai German Engineers.
Namun, the boss opened the door for him. “Impress me in 6 months or you have to go”, he said. Impress him he did. Dia terus ditawarkan kerja berkenaan.
Kemudian syarikat berkenaan telah berjaya mendapatkan tender membina Royal Clock Tower di Mekkah, melalui design yang dibuat oleh Wan Nazri. Atas kejayaan itu, SL Rasch telah menghantar Wan Nazri sebagai ketua konsultan untuk projek berkenaan bagi mengawasi pembinaannya dari A – Z.
Engineer Arab sangat skeptikal terhadap Engineer dari Asia juga. Tetapi memandangkan Wan Nazri datang dari German, beliau sangat dihormati, apatah lagi beliau memperlihatkan kecekapan dan kepakaran beliau. Sehingga ada syarikat besar di arab menawarkan gaji ratusan ribu sebulan untuk memancing beliau.
Kini beliau ada di Malaysia dengan tujuan kata beliau adalah untuk mencari bakat – bakat baru di Malaysia dan melatih mereka bagi mengenengahkan mereka di peringkat dunia. Beliau tidak mencari engineer yang berpengalaman, tetapi beliau mengumpulkan ramai anak muda yang baru graduate dan mempunyai potensi besar.
Beliau kata, the world is a different game altogether. Before accepting any project outside to give to my fellow Malaysian, i need to prepare them first.
Seorang world player, tetapi tidak lupa untuk kembali ke negara asal bagi memberi ruang dan peluang kepada anak muda lain. Kata beliau, “my boss at SL Rasch helped to open the door for me, now i am helping to open the door for others. I am just returning the favour”.
Bila diterangkan kepada beliau mengenai projek yang sedang kami usahakan, beliau sangat supportive dan berjanji memberi apa jua bantuan yang boleh beliau berikan.
Soalan terakhir saya, “Encik Wan, boleh cakap melayu tak?”
“Sudah tentu, saya orang Melayu”

What happened at the Nov. 5, 2015 Council meeting? Council passes a request for immigration reform, a trans day of remembrance and raises parking fees. Defers aerial ad prohibition and new fee for fencing.

 Cache   

This meeting is 2 hours and 49 minutes long.  If you are going to watch the meeting, you will get a lot more out of the meeting if you know what is under discussion. If you are going to watch it, you can probably watch in double time and not miss much context. To access the agenda, agenda analysis and my commentary on the agenda, follow this link.

I am providing my summary of the meeting below. However, be advised that I only hit the high points and report on what is important to me, so you may want to watch it for yourself. I do not even attempt to form an opinion on each zoning bill and normally only report on those that are controversial or are bills disapproved by the Planning Commission. Also, if you view the minutes of the meeting you can find out from the official record what happened without watching. Unfortunately, the minutes are often not posted until a week later. You can access the minutes at this link.

Followings Pat Nolan's introduction and summary of what is important that is on the agenda, the meeting is graveled to order at timestamp 8.55. Following the prayer, pledge and ceremonial presentation of a recognition of a member of the armed forces, the Council gets down to business with consideration of elections and confirmations at timestamp 23:08.

Elections and confirmations
Election of School Board members: There are four nominees. A nomination speech if offered by the nominating council member for each of the candidates and then each candidate addresses the Council.  Player-Peters was elected with the votes of 26 council member. The runner-up who got 14 votes was Kevin Stacy, a licensed teacher who has worked as a schools administrator for Metro, Clarksville and Williamson County. His area of specialty is administering English as a Second Language programs. There really does not seem to be an ideological consideration in this vote. Some of the conservatives voted for one but some conservatives voted for the other and the same among the more progressive council members.
There were several other position in other agencies filled but none are of very much interest to the general public. Seats were filled on the Industrial Development Board, which is of interest to a lot of people in segments of the business community, but I do not know enough about the candidates to have much interest who won the seats. Also seats were filled on the Community Education Commission.
Resolutions and Bills on Public Hearing.  The Council begins Public Hearing at timestamp 1:14:00.
The resolutions are exempting businesses from the minimum distance requirements for obtaining a beer permit. The bills are zoning bills. On bills, public hearing is occurring on Second Reading of the bill. None of the bills have been disapproved by the Planning Commission. Very few people speak on any of the items on Public Hearing. This is the only item on public hearing I find of interest: 
Bill BL2019-3   authorizes Metro to opt into the historic properties tax abatement program under state law and would establish a historic properties review board. This would give a property tax break to historic properties that are restored. I support this. I am a strong advocate of property rights and do not want to prohibit someone from tearing down a historic property but also want to see old significant buildings saved.  If we can incentivize people in preserving historic properties I favor it. This passes and is referred back to the Planning Committee for more work.
Resolutions. The consideration of resolutions begins at timestamp  1:43:19. Most resolutions are lumped together and passed on the "consent agenda."  If there is no dissension then the resolution is considered to have passed unanimously by all present.  Any member may have an item taken off of the consent agenda or have an abstention or "no" vote recorded. They may avoid voting in favor of a item on consent by being out of the room when the vote is taken. At the start of consideration of resolutions, Councilman Glover has Resolution RS2019-86 and Resolution RS2019-87 pulled off of consent.  I am so proud of him for this action. For way too long council members who don't agree with super liberal politically correct memorializing resolution have, nevertheless,  let them just slid on through without opposition.  It is time for that practice to end! These two resolutions are explained below.
Resolution RS2019-86  "request that the President of the United States and Congress of the United States enact comprehensive immigration reform and give Nashville’s qualified undocumented neighbors a path to citizenship and an opportunity to fully participate in the life of our community without fear." The resolution's sponsor, Councilman Robert Nash, speaks in favor of the resolution. At Large Council Member Zulfat Suara, Council Member Sandra Sepulveda, and Council Member Delishia Danielle Porterfield speak in favor and no one speaks in opposition. The vote is by machine and is 34 in favor, 3 abstentions, and 3 not voting.

While someone could have voted "no" or at least have explained why they were voting "abstain,"  I am not unhappy with this outcome.  The bill is so vaguely worded that one could reason that their understanding of what they want in comprehensive immigration reform is different than what someone else wants. I am sure President Trump's favors comprehensive immigration reform if it gave him adequate funding to build a wall and funded more immigration agents and courts and made some other changes to immigration policy.  Also, this really does nothing. It changes no policy and spends no money. It simply expresses the view of those who voted for it. If I had a vote, I would have voted "abstain."  See timestamp 2:03:07- 2:10:14 to see the deliberation. When the minutes are posted, I will report how each member of the Council voted.

Resolution RS2019-87 recognizing November 20, 2019 as Transgender Day of Remembrance in Nashville and Davidson County, Tennessee.The sponsor, Councilman Withers speaks in favor. No one speaks against it. I do not blame anyone for not speaking in opposition, but my objection is that we should not be pandering to the advocates of identity politics and that any loss of life is important and that there are many other groups of people at least, if not more, deserving of a day of remembrance. I express this view in this essay:How about a day of remembrance for American military killed in action? For policemen killed in action? For firemen? For babies killed by abortionist? For Americans killed by illegal aliens? For ....
This resolution changes no policy nor spends any money and amounts to nothing more that those who voted in favor of it recognizing that date for that purpose. The vote is taken by machine and is 34 in favor, 2 abstentions and 4 not voting. Once the minutes are available, I will post the record of how members voted.
On the above two resolutions, I was unsure why there was a machine rather than voice vote. On the second one, the vote was taken by voice vote, and the Vice Mayor had moved to the next item of business and then came back to the resolution and had a machine vote.  He then explained this was because a Council rule requires a recorded vote on any resolution with a "no" vote or an abstention.
 Bills on Second Reading. These are the ones that I find of interest.

Bill BL2019-4 prohibits aerial advertising.  I see no logic for this bill and if I served in the council I would vote against it.  It is deferred one meeting..
Bill BL2019-31 would require a permit for all new fencing. This was deferred one meeting.  
Bills on Third Reading. This is the only one of interest.
Bill BL2019-1 raises the parking violation fee for most parking violations from $11 to $25. It passes. With the scarcity of parking places and the increase in the value of a parking space it seems reasonable to increase this fee. This will help fund parking meter modernization.
