http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2018-08-07 - Unknown rotten egg odor on two days blows through Kuna (Idaho):

http://www.idahopress.com/kuna/news/kuna-officials-point-to-pond-as-culprit-of-strange-odor/article_36fed146-bd2b-59f9-842b-8d538235a10f.html

http://kpic.com/news/offbeat/dispatch-multiple-calls-for-bad-smell-in-kuna
http://wow1043.com/what-is-that-stench-in-kuna/

Quote: "Intermountain Gas has received more than 100 calls reporting a gas odor in and around Kuna, according to the Kuna Fire Department. The cause of the odor has not been determined yet. The Kuna Fire Department first received reports of the gas odor at 6 a.m. Monday. Intermountain Gas investigated and found there were no breaches or leaks in their system. By 1 p.m. Monday, the smell had gone away, but reports started again around 3 a.m. Tuesday and lasted until 11 a.m."

Quote: "Intermountain Gas technicians have responded to roughly 100 calls about a natural gas-like odor."

Quote: "In a statement issued Wednesday afternoon, The L & R Group said results from a third-party tester to determine if its facility is the source of the smell have been inconclusive. The company also said: 'While our facility does produce odors under certain conditions, we have never had any complaints of smell outside a two-mile radius of our facility. Based on historical information it is unlikely that the smell at our facility is traveling as much as twenty miles, as reported by some.'"

Note: So some people wanna blame a wastewater pond, but independent testing has been unable to verify that, and the company who owns the pond thinks that it's unlikely any odor from their pond could travel 20 miles. So, back to rotten egg odor from unknown source...

Quote: "A group of leading climate scientists warned in an article published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that the Earth is at risk of being driven into 'hothouse' state from which it cannot recover."

Note: That's not a risk, it's a certainty. Enough self-reinforcing feedbacks have ALREADY been activated that the Earth entering a hothouse state is unavoidable - we are irrelevant now, and soon enough we'll be eradicated too. Extinction incoming...

2018-08-07 - Warming Earth causing plants, trees and soil to absorb less methane:
http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2018-08/asrc-wsi080118.php

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/08/180806152021.htm
http://www.earth.com/news/climate-change-forests-methane/

Quote: "Trees, plants and soil play a vital role in absorbing and preventing many of the greenhouse gases responsible for global warming from entering the earth's atmosphere. But a new paper from researchers at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York finds that the existing effects of global warming are decreasing the soil's ability to absorb methane gas--one of the major drivers of global temperature increases--and creating a positive feedback loop between the effects of global warming and the variables that cause it."

Note: And there's yet another self-reinforcing feedback. As the world warms, the plants, trees and soil absorb less methane, so more methane accumulates in the atmosphere, which causes more warming, which causes less methane to be absorbed AND causes more methane to be released, which causes more methane to accumulate in the atmosphere, etc, etc. This is only one of the degrading methane sinks. Another big methane sink involves hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere, and the amount of hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere is also in decline...

2018-08-07 - Atmospheric methane levels hit a peak of 3046 ppb:
http://robinwestenra.blogspot.com/2018/08/a-peak-methane-reading-of-3046-ppb.html

Quote: "On the morning of August 6, 2018, mean global methane levels were as high as 1896 ppb at 293 mb. More importantly, peak levels that afternoon were as high as 3046 ppb, as illustrated by the image."

Note: Methane is a lighter-than-air gas, so it tends to accumulate in the upper atmosphere, and it's highly flammable. One has to expect that to have some effect on planes...

Quote: "A plane made an emergency landing at New York's Kennedy Airport after reports of smoke in the cockpit. Officials say United Airlines Flight 4697 from Washington to Providence, Rhode Island was diverted about 2 p.m. Tuesday. About 50 people were evacuated from the twin-engine Embraer ERJ-145 regional jet and bused to a terminal."

Note: This is the 132nd aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2018. In all of 2017, 116 planes came down smoking or burning or exploded, so we're already well past that count, with nearly five months to go in the year. The number of planes coming down smoking or burning is rising, even as the amount of flammable methane in the atmosphere is rising...

Quote: "The largest wildfire in California's recorded history expanded to almost 300,000 acres on Tuesday, postponing the start of the school year as ash choked the air and thousands of people remained driven from their homes. The Mendocino Complex, encompassing two fires lapping the northern and western shores of Clear Lake about 80 miles northwest of Sacramento, added 17,000 acres overnight to reach 290,000 acres, authorities said."

          Iconic FAO Schwarz returns with LaGuardia Airport store       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Get ready to make some music on that infamous piano mat: FAO Schwarz is returning to New York City later this year when the iconic toy store sets up shop at LaGuardia Airport.

FAO Schwarz, which closed its Fifth Avenue flagship in July 2015, is among the first retailers moving into Terminal B at LaGuardia Airport. Its neighbors include SoHo-based indie bookseller McNally Jackson, Hudson, LaGuardia Dufry Duty Free Shops, MAC, Spa Here and District Market, which will feature Made in Queens products.

“The latest retail offerings in the new Terminal B promise a best-in-class visitor experience that both New Yorkers and travelers can be proud of,” said Ed Baklor, chief commercial officer of LaGuardia Gateway Partners. “By listening to guest feedback and collaborating with our partners, we’ve created a unique environment you can only find at LaGuardia Terminal B, featuring the best of New York City.”

In addition to FAO Schwarz and other retailers, Terminal B at LaGuardia Airport will include food and drink spots Shake Shack, Irving Farm Coffee Roasters, Osteria Fusco, La Chula Bar & Taqueria, Kingside Bar & Restaurant and Five Boroughs Market.

Terminal B shops and gates will open in phases, with the first coming later this year. The terminal’s $5.1 billion redevelopment project will eventually bring more than 50 new eateries, shops and services to this eastern portion of LaGuardia Airport. Even more will be added when the main and western parts of the terminal are completed.

The new-and-improved Terminal B is part of the $8 billion LaGuardia Airport development plan unveiled by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2015. Private financing and existing passenger fees are funding 80 percent of the initiative.

The rest of the project, which is being constructed as the airport remains operational, will include a new Terminal C, to replace the current Terminal C and D, roadway improvements, new parking infrastructure and more.

          Watch Antifa Storm Portland City Hall, Smash Security Guard In Head      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Black-clad activists stormed Portland City Hall on Wednesday to protest the city's crowd control techniques used by police during last Saturday's counter-protest of a conservative march. The group assaulted one security guard with a megaphone and scuffled with several others, reports Oregon Live

Some of those who say they were injured by officers dressed in military gear and wielding batons or non-lethal munitions were on scene Wednesday, trying to speak with city officials.

One demonstrator, who was masked and wearing a baseball helmet, smashed a security guard over the head repeatedly with a megaphone. The guard was seen afterward clutching a bag of ice, a bruise beginning to form on his cheek. -Oregon Live

City Hall chief of security, Dorothy Elmore, reports being struck in the arm by a protester, while an unidentified bandana-clad man who was found sprawled on the floor outside the mayor's office was arrested and carried out by his arms and legs. Also arrested was 67-year-old Diane Keeauve, according to Portland police spokesman Sgt. Chris Burley. 

Each of the protesters face second-degree trespassing charges, said Burley. 

The demonstration started on a less rowdy note. A few dozen protesters converged near City Hall's east portico beginning around 9:30 a.m. to rail against police brutality after riot cops injured multiple people at Saturday's downtown protests.

Among them were those who say they were physically harmed by officers as police attempted to clear the rally against the right-wing group Patriot Prayer. -Oregon Live

"I should be home recovering from the pain and trauma I'm suffering. But I'm also suffering from complete outrage and powerlessness," said Michelle Fawcett, who lives in Portland.

The 52-year-old Fawcett sustained third-degree chemical burns after being struck by a flash-bang grenade fired by police. 

civil disturbance was declared at Saturday's march, after police say Antifa counter-protesters threw projectiles at them. 

Portland police chief Danielle Outlaw said on Monday that the bureau had temporarily suspended the use of flash-bang grenades, which they refer to as "aerial distraction devices," until they determine of they are working correctly after at least three people were hospitalized Saturday according to the activists. 

Leo Lacroix said he was injured when a non-lethal projectile fired by police grazed his head. He showed a reporter photos of his bloodied forehead and a scab from the small wound.

"I'd like to know why I was shot in the head by the cops," said Lacroix, 28. -Oregon Live

The Portland city council meeting began on Wednesday with little disruption, however after a man was escorted out of the building for swearing at council members, people in the audience broke into chants of "end police brutality," which mayor Ted Wheeler admonished them for. When they would not stop, he called a recess to the session and reconvened with city commissioners in a conference room outside of his office - where the meeting was conducted despite muffled chants of "shame on you" from protesters outside. 

Commissioner carried on through their agenda despite muffled chants of "shame on you" from protesters outside.

"What's happening downstairs?" Commissioner Amanda Fritz asked during a break between hearings.

"Well, there's actually a gentleman laying on the floor right outside," replied Matt Grumm, chief of staff to Commissioner Dan Saltzman.

Grumm turned to Commissioner Nick Fish: "Jumped on an e-scooter yet?"

Fish replied that he had not, but that they "seem to be everywhere."

Though the meeting went on in ho-hum fashion, with discussions of property liens, eminent domain and parks bonds, the atmosphere outside was anything but. -Oregon Live

At that point, the protesters broke in and began assaulting city employees, only to stop after they were threatened with arrest.

          Police Are Acquiring Surveillance Tech in Secret      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A California bill would give the public a say and require more transparency from law enforcement.

Recent stories about Amazon’s invasive face scanning surveillance technology and Cambridge Analytica’s exploitation of Facebook data have brought the impact of surveillance and data misuse to the fore. But many people don’t realize how often local law enforcement agencies acquire and use similar technologies in their own communities. A groundbreaking bill pending in California would bring this day-to-day local surveillance out of the shadows and give communities a way to fight back against surveillance systems that are disproportionately aimed at immigrants and people of color.

The bill, SB 1186, requires greater transparency and public oversight when law enforcement agencies seek to acquire surveillance technologies that collect sensitive location or other personal data. It builds on a workable model that several California localities have already enacted.

Right now, a key California legislative committee holds the power to advance the bill, which is supported by a broad coalition of California civil rights and civil liberties organizations. In this political climate, it’s a necessary tool for protecting immigrants and other vulnerable residents from surveillance systems that are readily exploitable by the federal government.

The bill requires local law enforcement to get the approval of elected local representatives before acquiring surveillance technology. Before that vote, law enforcement agencies like police departments, sheriffs, and district attorneys must propose a set of written rules that explain their plans for the technology as wells as limits on its use and collection and sharing of data. Next, residents get a chance to weigh in on these rules and the proposal at a public meeting. If a city council or board of supervisors doesn’t approve a proposal, law enforcement cannot acquire or use that technology.

As surveillance technology becomes more powerful and easily available, California needs this bill now more than ever — and hopefully other states will follow its lead. Often bankrolled by federal funds, technologies like automatic license plate readers, drones, and social media surveillance systems have invaded our communities without our knowledge or input. These technologies collect information about our whereabouts and other sensitive details about our lives, and they are frequently turned on local activists.

Warrantless surveillance not only feeds databases that can be abused, it leads to real-world harms that disproportionately affect immigrants, people of color, and Muslim-Americans. Many law enforcement agencies have used social media monitoring products advertised as tools to track activists of color. For example, San Jose police used it to spy on protesters during a visit by India’s prime minister. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department monitored the residents of Compton using high-powered aerial surveillance. San Francisco police stopped and held an elderly Black woman at gunpoint — all because an automatic license plate reader improperly identified her car as a stolen vehicle. Elsewhere, police have used that same technology to monitor mosque visitors.

Federal immigration authorities are increasingly seeking to exploit these local surveillance systems, often without local knowledge. Earlier this year, for example, news broke that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had obtained access to a database operated by a company called Vigilant, which hosts license plate location data collected by local law enforcement agencies across the United States.

The ACLU of Northern California has sued to learn more about this arrangement, and some California communities have stood up and rejected this company’s technology. However, these systems continue to prowl cities and rural areas, collecting data about immigrants while they’re driving to work, running errands, or bringing their kids to school. ICE should not be able to exploit this data to target and separate families. SB 1186 gives communities statewide a way to ensure that local law enforcement is not facilitating practices like this.

Communities such as Santa Clara County, Oakland, Davis, and Berkeley have already passed ordinances that require law enforcement agencies to be transparent about surveillance proposals, submit those proposals to a vote by elected leaders, and write strict rules for how the technologies can be used. SB 1186 — which would be the first statewide law of its kind — would ensure that all Californians can benefit from these important reforms. Community voices must be heard if surveillance proposals are on the table.

This bill is a piece of a larger movement. Localities across the country are taking part in a national campaign called Community Control Over Police Surveillance (CCOPS), a reform effort spearheaded by 17 organizations, including the ACLU, aimed at putting local residents and elected officials in charge of decisions about surveillance technology. To date, local CCOPS efforts have sprouted up in more than 20 cities, including New York and St. Louis.

After passing through the California Senate, the California Assembly Appropriations Committee will decide this bill’s fate in the next week. If you live in California, contact your state assembly representative and encourage them to support SB 1186 across the finish line.

This will not be an easy fight. Law enforcement agencies strongly oppose this bill’s transparency and oversight mechanisms. But public safety in the digital era requires that elected representatives and community members have a voice in important decisions like these.


          Compact Energy and Delay-Aware Authentication, by Muslum Ozgur Ozmen and Rouzbeh Behnia and Attila A. Yavuz      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Authentication and integrity are fundamental security services that are critical for any viable system. However, some of the emerging systems (e.g., smart grids, aerial drones) are delay-sensitive, and therefore their safe and reliable operation requires delay-aware authentication mechanisms. Unfortunately, the current state-of-the-art authentication mechanisms either incur heavy computations or lack scalability for such large and distributed systems. Hence, there is a crucial need for digital signature schemes that can satisfy the requirements of delay-aware applications. In this paper, we propose a new digital signature scheme that we refer to as Compact Energy and Delay-aware Authentication (CEDA). In CEDA, signature generation and verification only require a small-constant number of multiplications and Pseudo Random Function (PRF) calls. Therefore, it achieves the lowest end-to-end delay among its counterparts. Our implementation results on an ARM processor and commodity hardware show that CEDA has the most efficient signature generation on both platforms, while offering a fast signature verification. Among its delay-aware counterparts, CEDA has a smaller private key with a constant-size signature. All these advantages are achieved with the cost of a larger public key. This is a highly favorable trade-off for applications wherein the verifier is not memory-limited. We open-sourced our implementation of CEDA to enable its broad testing and adaptation.

          Sampling-Based Tour Generation of Arbitrarily Oriented Dubins Sensor Platforms. (arXiv:1808.02985v1 [cs.RO])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Doo-Hyun Cho, Dae-Sung Jang, Han-Lim Choi

This paper describes a formulation and develops a novel procedure for a fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from the perspective of remotely executable tasks. In a complex mission environment, the characteristics of vehicles can be different in terms of sensing capability, range, direction, or the motion constraints. The purpose of this paper is to find a set of paths that minimizes the sum of costs while every task region is visited exactly once under certain reasonable assumptions. The heterogeneous multi-UAV path planning problem is formulated as a generalized, heterogeneous, multiple depot traveling salesmen problem (GHMDATSP), which is a variant of the traveling salesman problem. The proposed transformation procedure changes an instance of the GHMDATSP into a format of an Asymmetric, Traveling Salesman Problem (ATSP) to obtain tours for which the total cost of a fleet of vehicles is minimized. The instance of the ATSP is solved using the Lin-Kernighan-Helsgaun heuristic, and the result is inversely transformed to the GHMDATSP-formatted instance to obtain a set of tours. An additional local optimization based path refinement process helps obtain a high-quality solution. Numerical experiments investigate and confirm for the validity and applicability of the proposed procedure.


          Passive Compliance Control of Aerial Manipulators. (arXiv:1808.03037v1 [cs.RO])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Min Jun Kim, Ribin Balachandran, Marco De Stefano, Konstantin Kondak, Christian Ott

This paper presents a passive compliance control for aerial manipulators to achieve stable environmental interactions. The main challenge is the absence of actuation along body-planar directions of the aerial vehicle which might be required during the interaction to preserve passivity. The controller proposed in this paper guarantees passivity of the manipulator through a proper choice of end-effector coordinates, and that of vehicle fuselage is guaranteed by exploiting time domain passivity technique. Simulation studies validate the proposed approach.

Medina Annex Gate - Looks different now, I seem to remember Satan's imps guarding the old one back in '87.
Google Streetview
As I mentioned yesterday, there were three types of folks typical of the victims students at OTS, back in the day:
  1. one group were recent college grads who wanted to fly for the Air Force but didn't manage an ROTC scholarship during their college days,
  2. the second group couldn't find jobs they liked with their (perhaps useless) college degrees, so "what the heck" they joined the Air Force,
  3. the third group were the enlisted, looking to get a commission in Uncle Sam's Aerial Follies.
Yes, dear readers, Your Humble Scribe fell into that last category. We had a mixture of groups two and three in my flight, we had one chap from the first group. Fellow named Marks, hence the nickname "Karl."

This guy.
(Source)
Karl was at OTS for one reason, and one reason only, to eventually fly A-10s. He didn't care about any of the horse manure going on around him, dude was freaking focused. As you can see, that focus paid off. I don't remember if he already had a slot for flight training or not. I'm guessing he probably did, I can't imagine putting up with that OTS crap for "you might get a slot in flight training."

So, OT Marks did make it through, after my departure he was the only one of my flight mates I ever heard of again. When I was at Offutt, I saw a story in the Air Force Times about an A-10 flight lead and his wingman (one 1Lt John "Karl" Marks) destroying a bunch of Iraqi tanks during Desert Storm. Twenty-three Iraqi tanks, if one was counting, and they were. You can read about that here.

So other than the stud future fighter pilot Sarge, what other sort of folks were with you aboard the Good Ship Medina? Well, they were a mixed lot.

One guy was an aircraft maintainer who had had a couple of years at the Air Force Academy prior to being shown the door there and getting to pay back his two years of free college by working on Uncle Sam's airplanes. Somehow he received the whole "second chance" thing and was now at OTS. Dude was the best analogy guy I have ever seen. He had an analogy for every occasion. The rest of the flight gave up trying to say "well, that's just like..." because OT AnalogyDude would top it, every single time.

He's also the guy who stunned us all by calling someone by their first name, rather than the "required" Mr. (or Ms.) So-and-So. As he had "been there, done that" at the Academy, he had a good nose for what he could and could not get away with. Great guy, I often wonder if he made it through.

Two other guys stand out in my mind, one of whom I actually remember his name. Well, his last name. That would be Mr. Gordon. Why do I remember his name and not the others? Well, Mr. Gordon did not look like a Gordon. He was an Israeli, an actual sabra who had emigrated to the U.S. and decided to join the USAF.

Dark complected, with that rugged look that so many kibbutzim seem to have. (I have no idea if he had lived on a kibbutz or not, but he looked like the kind of guy who could create farmland out of desert.) His attitude was also very similar to mine, the difference? He kept it to himself. He would bemoan the stupidity of the system when among the rest of us rebels but when the staff was around he was Joe Air Force, Mr. OTS all the way.

I don't know how he did it. (Not to get ahead of myself, but when I stopped by OTS to get some paperwork done in late March, I ran into Mr. Gordon. He was, believe it or not, the OTS Wing Commander. Heh. He had fooled them all!)

My roommate I remember his name and everything, which I suppose isn't that surprising. A more unmilitary guy I couldn't imagine. I actually got yelled at once for his bed not being made properly.

"OT! Why is your roommate's bed such a disaster?" barked Ahab.

"Um, I don't know Captain. Perhaps you should ask him?"

"We expect you priors to take care of the civilians." Ahab admonished.

"Okay, so we're supposed to compete against each other, yet we who have been in a while are supposed to babysit the new kids?"

"Yes, exactly."

"Hhmm, pardon me if I don't agree with that. I showed Mr. C. how to make his bed. I was only shown once in Basic, why should he need more? After all, he wants to be an officer, seems that he should be able to perform a task an airman with three days in the Air Force can get right nine times out of ten."

"I don't like you OT."

"I think we've had this conversation before..."

"BEFORE WHAT?!?!?" barked Ahab.

"Um, before today?"

As she was glaring at me, about to stroke out, I showed pity, in order to save her life I added, "Ma'am?"

Yup, for some reason she didn't like me.

I really remember only one other guy in the flight. Well, him and the guy Mr. AnalogyDude called Mr. Roboto, as the guy marched like a robot, a robot with a broom up his ass. Mr. AnalogyDude would march behind him and mutter, "Dude, dude, you're out of step." Fun to watch as Mr. Roboto would hop around trying to get back in step. When he already was in step. Anyhoo, the other guy I remember had been a BB stacker, er, I mean weapons loader, at some bomber base before going to OTS. The dude actually flipped out, told Ahab that he couldn't take the pressure and was considering ending it all with his OTS-issued scissors. (Which Mr. AnalogyDude mentioned that he'd like to see him try. OTS scissors were very similar to the ones you get in kindergarden.)

Yeah, that's the guy!
(Source)
Well, Mr. BBStacker was drummed out of OTS. He was allowed to stay in the Air Force, but he wasn't allowed to stack BBs anymore, I think they made him a clerk. They also jerked his security clearance, all of which one of our flight captains relayed to us after the fact. Hhmm, I don't see him as having much of a career after that. On the other hand, he'd be a perfect candidate to become a senior enlisted advisor. (Are you guessing I have a low opinion of that species? You'd be correct, I might explain that someday. POCIR.)

Shortly after Mr. I'mNotAllowedAroundWeaponsAnymore left the building, our flight captains (I may have neglected to mention that's what our two upperclassman were called, they trained us, sort of, while being trained themselves, in reality, they were rather glorified babysitters) called for a meeting in one of the dayrooms.

We all showed up and the senior of the two walked in wearing a second lieutenant's uniform.

"This gentlemen, is what it's all about!" gesturing at the gold bars on his collar.

Of course, I just had to chime in.

"So, impersonating a commissioned officer is what it's all about?"

"No, I'm doing this to make a point. You have to understand..."

"All I understand is that we are all witnesses to a felony. You might wish to reconsider this move. Sir."

Yeah, the meeting broke up rather quickly after that. As I headed back to my room, I could hear the shouts from down the hallway, it was time for all the OTs to gather and sing "Wild Blue Yonder."

No, seriously.

I felt as if I was in a really bad movie from the '40s. I guess the stuff worked on the kids, but to an old sergeant, it was so much nonsense. I once remarked to Mr. AnalogyDude that attempting to generate an atmosphere of esprit de corps amongst a bunch of 90 Day Wonders, who were competing against each other, seemed like rather a waste of time. It seemed to me that the ones who bought into that nonsense were the last folks you would want as officers.

All he said was, "Watch Karl. Karl gets it, he says all the right things, he does the whole 'Yessir, nosir, three bags full' thing but generally stays out of things. He pretty much does what they want, when they want."

"He's like a trained animal who..."

"Who wants to fly A-10s."

Which made me think, why the Hell did I want to be an Air Force officer anyway? I couldn't fly, not with my eyesight, I was destined to be a computer puke at Tactical Air Forces Headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

Well, making a lot more money for one thing. I also had a feeling that I would like Virginia (which I do, hadn't been there before the kids were stationed there, I would have liked Langley I think). As to the more money thing, yeah, about $650 bucks a month more, pre-tax.

Then the straw, or rather straws, which broke the camel's back happened. At the same mass briefing on the same day. Put me over the top it did.

On base there was a theater, which the school referred to as the "Mass Briefing Facility" as all of the various OTs would fit so we could be brain-washed briefed at the same time. The troops called it the Master Bedroom. Once the lights were down low, at least half of the OTs would fall asleep. Sleep was not something one did at OTS. When you could get it, you went for it.

Anyhoo.

All gathered together, one of the school staff got up on stage and told us that one of the school's prime goals was to teach us to be officers. (I would have thought that was their only goal, but who was I to quibble?) And...

"For you prior enlisted, we need to break you from the habit of thinking like sergeants."

Much muttering ensued. Mr. AnalogyDude said to me, "Ah, we're not supposed to think at all!"

"Well, the goal is to make us second lieutentants. Right?"

Hilarity ensued, glares were directed in our general direction.

After that "brilliant" observation, the guy on stage said...

"You all came here with follow on orders for your first assignment as officers. Except for the pilots, all those orders have been cancelled. We think that we here at the school are far better judges of where you would best suit the needs of the Air Force after graduation."

Oh shit, oh dear.

Though it was years before Star Wars, I sensed a disturbance in the Force. I was not to be a computer officer at Langley AFB in Virginia, the bastards would find a way to send me to some freaking desolate outpost. Like Thule, or Shemya.

I was freaking doomed. I could almost sense Ahab's glee, no doubt she thought she had a glimpse of the White Whale.

Thursday yowls and roars, good Kittens All...the crucial war for our FREEDOM OF SPEECH goes into superdrive, and will continue to relentlessly firestorm across our beloved country, and yes, across the entire world... 1776 FREEDOM WORLDWIDE, baby...
Oh, and believe this Big Cat, the people of China want their FREEDOM too-- from commie tyranny... okay, as Drudge exposed, now the Red Chinese tyranny is threatening to close down their Apple factories because of tariffs... well, to be honest, the Kougar says PLEASE SHUT THOSE SLAVE FACTORIES DOWN!!! NOW!
Okay, this Big Cat has no apple device, relies on no apple device, thus in her case, big effing deal ... now those of you do use apple devices might care a lot ... yeah, who gives a damn about the horrors of working in a China slave factory ... you think the Kougar is lying? Just do the research for yourself ... why are WE THE PEOPLE?  from the land of FREEDOM? buying slave-produced products??? Not to mention every last iota of your personal info, your login info, etc. is on the apple cloud, which is now OWNED by the Chinese Despot government ... isn't that fun, kiddos? Or, as the late great George Carlin might say, THE COMMIES GOT YOU BY THE BALLS.
And who has been warning you about this Chinese Cyber takeover for the last five years, at least? This Big Cat, and those like her, who can actually foresee this obvious developing future. Really, who couldn't have foreseen something like this happening? Given what was has happened in our world?

Russian Fleet Rushes To Arctic Over Fears US May Have Started War With Unknown Alien Species
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
At the same time the highly influential Veteran Intelligent Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) organization is warning President Trump that the “Deep State” intelligence on Iran he is receiving could be catastrophic, a new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today suggests that the United States, if not the entire world, may have even bigger things to worry about—and is due to a believed to be shootdown by the US Air Force of a known and accepted “interstellar-interdimensional device” (most commonly referred as a UFO) within the Arctic Circle on 25 July, whose explosive force was registered at 2.1 kilotons—and has now seen this “devices” suspected “pair-mate”, on 4 Augustenter our Earth’s atmosphere in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Region-Yugra in West Siberia from where it began transversing the globe—until yesterday, 7 August,when it hovered in the skies over the Philippines, then raced towards the Arctic Circle where it plunged into the Greenland Sea with enough force to cause a 5.8 magnitude earthquake—and in response to President Putin, just hours ago, ordered the immediate deployment of the entire Russian Northern Fleet to Arctic waters.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

Massive “interstellar-interdimensinal” device (above) makes rare appearance over Philippines before racing to, and then plunging into, the Greenland Sea on 7 August 2018

According to this report, throughout the entirety of recorded human history, one of our planet’s most enduring mysteries has been the sudden and unexplained appearance of massive “interstellar-interdimensional” devices in our skies—and who, in the concealing of their presence, use unknown technology to envelope themselves in massive cloud formations—so gigantic, in fact, the late American physicist William Corliss Ph.D., in his 1983 scientific research paper titled “Tornadoes, Dark Days, Anomalous Precipitation, and Related Weather Phenomena”, documented them being able to cover entire regions, resulting in what he called “Dark Days”, as the Sunwould be completely obliterated from the sky.
One of the most written about “Dark Days” associated with these “interstellar-interdimensinal” devices in near historic times, this report details, occurred on 19 May 1780 throughout the entire region of the United Statesknown as New England—and where, shortly before Noon on that day, the sky turned yellowish, then went completely black.  


Shortly before Noon, on Friday, 20 July 2018, this report notes, another of these “Dark Days” occurred that covered the entire Eveno-Bytantaisky and Zhigansky districts of Russia’s coldest region Yakutia—and whose residents of refused to accept official explanations, with many of them stating it was, indeed, caused by what they called a massive UFO.
Though not having the technology to fully track these “interstellar-interdimensional” devices when they enter our Earth’s atmosphere, this report says, this particular “Dark Day” cause, five days later, on 25 July, was determined by the MoD to be operating within the Arctic Circle—with it then being observed that a missile had fired by the US Air Force from their Arctic Circle air base, and that was immediately followed with the registering of a 2.1 kiloton explosion—but that the Americans claimed was due to a crashed meteorite.   

US Air Force fighter pilots admit their being ordered to fire on UFO’s

Near simultaneously with this 2.1 kiloton explosion occurring in the Arctic, this report continues, and also on 25 July, the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) sent out an urgent astrogram (astronomer’s telegram) notifying the world that they had just detected a mysterious fast radio burst (FRB) they designated FRB 180725—and whose frequency of 580 MHz is nearly 200 megahertz lower than any other radio burst ever detected in history.
MoD analysts, this report concludes, have formed a hypothesis that this mysterious never seen before FRB was directed to the “interstellar-interdimensional” device fired on by the US Air Force—and that caused its “pair mate” device to come to its rescue as it may be lying disabled on the seafloor within the Arctic Circle—but whose full consequences of, should the worst have happened, and the Americans, indeed, fired upon an alien craft, are contained in the most highly classified section of this MoD report we’re not allowed to mention—other then to note its containing the full details of the most infamous “Dark Day” event occurring in recorded human history on 14 April 1561—and was when the inhabitants of the German city of Nuremberg witnessed a massive aerial battle involving hundreds of UFO’s in the skies above them—but whose cause of has never been known.

ANCIENT ET SPACESHIP, OR LOST TECHNOLOGY ON EARTH? 

WHEN RON PAUL GETS SERIOUSLY CENSORED, YOU KNOW THE FALSE FLAGS ARE ON THE DRAWING BOARD... BIGTIME... 

‘TRUTH IS TREASON IN EMPIRE OF LIES’: RON PAUL ON BIG TECH CENSORSHIP

“Challenging the status quo is what they can’t stand and it unnerves them, so they have to silence people.”

‘Truth is treason in empire of lies’: Ron Paul on Big Tech censorship


After the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute got suspended on Twitter, the former congressman from Texas told RT that social media crackdowns are part of a broader effort to silence dissent in the US.
While social media could be a “real delight” and very informative, the biggest role social networks are playing is “working with the government,” Ron Paul told RT on Tuesday. The government is indirectly regulating speech through companies like Twitter and Facebook, he added.
“You get accused of treasonous activity and treasonous speech because in an empire of lies the truth is treason,” Paul said. “Challenging the status quo is what they can’t stand and it unnerves them, so they have to silence people.”

Paul served in the House of Representatives for over 25 years before retiring in 2013 and setting up the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. The institute’s executive director, Daniel McAdams, found himself suspended from Twitter on Monday, apparently for retweeting a comment by radio show host Scott Horton.
Horton, who is also the editorial director of Antiwar.com, was suspended for criticizing journalist Jonathan M. Katz, after Katz complained to Twitter and got former former State Department employee and author Peter Van Buren banned from the platform.
“I’m just hoping that technology can stay ahead of it all and that we can have real alternatives to the dependency on Twitter and other companies that have been working hand in glove with the government,”Paul told RT.
“And if we, some of us, tell the truth about our government, they call us treasonous and say we’re speaking out of line and they’d like to punish us, and I think that’s part of what’s happening with social media,” he added.

As Globalists And Big Tech 'Identify, Vilify, Nullify And Destroy', Totalitarian Attempts To Ban The 1st Amendment Could Lead To Rivers Of Blood Flowing Through The Streets Of America

support_the_2nd.jpg

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

With 'big tech' and the globalists having launched an all-out war upon the 1st Amendment with Alex Jones and Infowars clearly the 'canary in the coal mine' of tyranny, Steve Quayle recently warned while linking to this story over at Intellihub about the fiasco: "when there is no 'alt news', murder and death will rule the day". 


With Senate Democrats now actually floating plans that would see the US government taking over the internet according to a leaked memo circulating among them that details a plethora of authoritarian proposals for regulating digital platforms such as Infowars and ANP, allegedly to "get tough on Russian bots and fake news", the fact that one Democratic senator recently said "the survival of our democracy depends on banning sites like InfoWars" tells us everything that we need to know going forward in 2018. (REMINDER TO CONGRESS: Your job approval rating SUCKS at 18%!)

As Quayle also mentioned while linking to this story over at Zero Hedge which reports that the censorship crackdown continues with twitter suspending several accounts of prominent libertarians, including the account of the Director of the Ron Paul Institute, "the first victim in any war is truth - 'propaganda is the execution squad' to all truth - the full-scale NWO pogrom begins!

Trump Taunts “Deep State” Daring Them To Assassinate Him As Historic US-Russia Alliance To Save World Gains Speed

An astonishing historically centered new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today says that 48-hours after a suspected to be CIA assassination plot failed to kill their nations leader in Wilkes-BarrePennsylvania, an appearing to be fearless President Donald Trump appeared openly again before a cheering crowd of his supporters in Lewis CenterOhio where he actually taunted his “Deep State” demonic anti-Christ globalist enemies daring them to try to assassinate him again—and that he did so by his unmistakably declaring his allegiance to the 25th President of the United States William McKinley—and afterwards Trump’s allegiance to McKinley spreading like wildfire across the globe spurring comments like “Did you pick it up? CONFIRMED!  The Trump US government will begin to fund itself by everything else EXCEPT INCOME TAXES.  That's the future economic plan and I'm so jealous I'm not an American!!!”—with the true significant origins of what Trump is doing being able to be traced back to “The Two Liberators”, Tsar Alexander II and President Abraham Lincoln.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

Down through the centuries, very mysterious individuals have appeared at certain moments in human history and provided convincing demonstrations that "impossible" inventions are possible.

Click here to enlarge top photo.

A "respectable burgher of North Holland" appeared "modest and simple" to the alchemist Helvetius one day in 1666. It was the stranger’s incredible knowledge that startled and inspired the alchemists of Helvetius's day, and though these learned and determined men never did acquire the philosopher's stone that would transmute lead into gold, they did fashion the seeds of the science of chemistry that has accomplished so many transmutations of the human environment and the human condition in the last three hundred years.

Out of the smoky laboratories of the alchemists, Albert le Grand produced potassium lye; Raymond Lully prepared bicarbonate of potassium; Paracelsus described zinc and introduced chemical compounds in medicine; Blaise Vigenere discovered benzoic acid; Basil Valentine perfected sulfuric acid; and Johann Friedrich Boetticher be-came the first European to produce porcelain.

While each of the above is an important discovery, there are rumors that lying amidst the musty pages of certain ancient alchemical laboratories there are recorded experiments with photography, radio transmission, phonography, and aerial flight.

Throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, there were many scholars who claimed that they had received late-night visits from mysterious members of a secret society that had accomplished the transmutation of metals, the means of prolonging life, the knowledge to see and to hear what was occurring in distant places, and the ability to travel across the heavens in heavier-than-air vehicles.

Numerous occult groups have been created around the belief that centuries ago a secret society achieved a high level of scientific knowledge that they carefully guarded from the rest of humanity. According to these occultists, certain men of genius in ancient Egypt and Persia were given access to the records of the advanced technologies of the antediluvian world of Atlantis. Many hundreds of years ago, these ancient masters learned to duplicate many of the feats of the Titans of the lost continent.

There are persistent legends in nearly every culture that tell of an Elder Race that populated the Earth millions of years ago. The Old Ones, who may originally have been of extraterrestrial origin or the survivors of highly advanced terrestrial civilization that was destroyed after the last Ice Age, were an immensely intelligent and scientifically sophisticated species who eventually chose to structure their own environment under the surface of the planet's soil and seas. The Old Ones usually remain aloof from the surface dwellers, but from time to time throughout history, they have been known to visit certain of Earth's more intelligent members in the guise of alchemist or mysterious scientists in order to offer constructive criticism and, in some cases, to give valuable advice in the material sciences.

The decision to form an ancient secret society may have been based on the members' highly developed moral sense and their recognition of the awesome position of responsibility that the discovery of such applications of ancient knowledge had placed upon them. They may have decided to keep their own counsel until the rest of the world had become enlightened enough to deal wisely with such a high degree of technical accomplishments.     

From time to time, the secret society may decide the time is propitious to make one of its discoveries known to the "outside world." Such intervention in the affairs of humankind is usually accomplished by carefully feeding certain fragments of research to "outside" scientists whose work and attitude have been judged particularly deserving. When these scientists accomplish the breakthroughs in their research, they credit the success of the experiments to their own diligence, and the secrecy the society prizes so highly is maintained.

On the other hand, the secret society may feel little or no responsibility of any kind to those humans outside of their group. They may be merely biding their time until they turn the great mass of humanity into their slaves.

By the 1840s, the legend of Agharta had already been widely circulated among the mystically minded in Germany. According to this ancient tradition, the Master of the World already controlled many of the kings and rulers of the surface world by exercising his occult powers. Soon this Master and his super race would launch an invasion of Earth and subjugate all humans to his will.

If certain master magicians, disciples of the Titans, individuals of exceptional intellect, power, and wealth, actually did achieve a high degree of technical accomplishment sev¬eral centuries ago, then they could very well be responsible for a good many of the strange and mysterious vehicles seen in our skies. And if alien life-forms apprehended their advanced technology at the end of the previous century, then they might have established an alliance with the society of humans that easily appeared to be the more advanced and worthy to receive the benefits of their extraterrestrial super science.

The year 1897 may have seemed an ideal time to show the “outsiders” just how far advanced the members of the ancient secret society really were.

The science of the outsiders seemed as though it had gone about as far as it could go, and it was poised confidently on the brink of the twentieth century. Many of the world's most learned men and women were filled with pride over a host of new technological accomplishments.

In 1893, Karl Benz and Henry Ford built their first four¬wheeled automobiles. Thomas Edison's Kinetoscope (1889) was among the first practical systems of cinematography, and in 1895, Louis and Auguste Lumiere presented the first commercial projection. In that same year, Wilhelm Roentgen dis¬covered X rays, Marconi invented radio telegraphy, and Konstantin Tsiolkovsky formulated the principle of rocket reaction propulsion. In 1896, William Ramsay isolated helium, Ernest Rutherford accomplished the magnetic detection of electrical waves, and Henri Becquerel discovered radioactivity. The Royal Automobile Club was founded in London in 1897, and cars were going faster every year.

However, with all of these scientific marvels about which to boast, there were as yet no heavier-than-air aerial vehicles to occupy the efforts and the interests of potential aviators; and a good number of brilliant scientists of great reputation had gone on record with their arguments that it was aerodynamically impossible to build such a flying machine. On the other hand, the future of balloon transport seemed promising, and gondolas could be attached to carry passengers. With all the other wonders of modern science, how could anyone bemoan the lack of heavier-than-air flying machines?

And yet, in March of 1897, a bizarre aircraft, often described as resembling a cone-shaped steamboat, was seen flying across the United States and later throughout the world.

The German Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin did not build his famous airship, a rigid dirigible, until 1898. Could some mysterious unknown inventors have beaten Count von Zeppelin to the drawing board with a much more impressive vehicle, a forerunner of the modern passenger plane? Or was a secret terrestrial society of master magicians once again displaying their superiority over the outsiders?

The flights of the enigmatic airship continued until August of 1897 when the craft was sighted off the coast of Norway and over Vancouver, British Columbia on the same day.

After a twelve-year absence, the airship reappeared over England in 1909. Within a matter of days, it was sighted over New Zealand, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, West Virginia, and Tennessee. Its final appearance seems to have been over Memphis on January 20, 1910.

In 1871, occultist Edward Bulwer-Lytton wrote The Coming Race, a novel about a small group of German mystics who had discovered a race of supermen living within the Earth’s interior. The super race had built a paradise based on The Vril Force, a form of energy so powerful that the older beings had outlawed its use as a potential weapon. The Vril, was derived from the Black Sun, a large ball of “Prima Materia” that provided light and radiation to the inhabitants of the inner Earth.

In 1919, Karl Haushofer founded the Brothers of the Light Society in Berlin, and soon changed its name to the Vril Society. As Haushofer’s Vril grew in prominence, it united three major occult societies, the Lords of the Black Stone, the Black Knights of the Thule Society, and the Black Sun and chose the swastika, the hooked cross, as its symbol of the worship of the Black Sun.     

As with many secret groups, there appears to have been more than one order--those who followed the Golden Sun and those who followed the Black Sun. The Black Sun, like the Swastika, is a very ancient symbol. While the Swastika represents the eternal fountain of creation, the Black Sun is even older, suggesting the very void of creation itself. The symbol on the Nazi flag is the Thule Sonnenrad (Sun Wheel), not a reversed good luck Swastika. The Black Sun can be seen in many ancient Babylonian and Assyrian places of worship.

While these societies borrowed some concepts and rites from various Hermetic groups, they placed special emphasis on the innate mystical powers of the Aryan race. The Vril and its fellow societies maintained that the Germanic/Nordic/ Teutonic people were of Aryan origin, and that Christianity had destroyed the power of the Teutonic civilization.     

The secret societies formed in Germany wanted desperately to prove themselves worthy of the super humans that lived beneath the surface of the planet and they wished to be able to control the incredibly powerful Vril force. This ancient force had been known among the alchemists and magicians as the Chi, the Odic force, the Orgone, the Astral Light, and they were well aware of its transformative powers to create supermen of ordinary mortals.

In 1921, Maria Orsic (Orsitch), a medium in the society, now renamed Vril Gesellschaft, began claiming spirit messages originating from Aryan aliens on Alpha Tauri in the Aldeberan star system. Orsic and another medium named Sigrun, learned that the aliens spoke of two classes of people on their world--the Aryan, or master race, and a subservient planetary race that had evolved through mutation and climate changes. A half billion years ago, the Aryans, also known as the Elohim or Elder Race, began to colonize our solar system. On Earth, the Aryans were identified as the Sumerians until they elected to carve out an empire for themselves in the hollow of the planet.

Students of the Vril Society also insist that extraterrestrials worked with Nazi scientists to create early models of flying saucers. According to some researchers, an alien tutor race secretly began cooperating with certain German scientists from the Thule, the Vril, and the Black Sun societies in the late 1920s. Working in underground bases with the alien intelligences, the Nazis mastered antigravity space flight, established space stations, accomplished time travel, an developed their spacecraft to warp speeds.

In 1922, members of Thule and Vril claim to have built the Jenseitsflugmaschine, the Other World Flight Machine, based on the psychic messages received from the Aldebaran aliens. W. O. Schulmann of the Technical University of Munich was in charge of the project until it was halted in 1924, and the craft was stored in Messerschmitt’s Augsburg. In 1937, after Hitler came into power, he authorized the construction of the Rund flugzeug, the round, or disk-shaped vehicle, for military use and for spaceflight.

In April, 1942, Nazi Germany sent out an expedition composed of a number of its most visionary scientists to seek a military vantage point in the hollow earth. Although the expedition of leading scientists left at a time when the Third Reich was putting maximum effort in their drive against the Allies, Goering, Himmler, and Hitler are said to have enthusiastically endorsed the project. Steeped in the more esoteric teachings of metaphysics, the Fuehrer had long been convinced that Earth was concave and that a master race lived on the inside of the planet.

The Nazi scientists who left for the island of Rugen had complete confidence in the validity of their quest. In their minds, such a coup as discovering the opening to the Inner World would not only provide them with a military advantage, but it would go a long way in convincing the Masters who lived there that the German people truly deserved to mix their blood with them in the creation of a hybrid master race to occupy the surface world, truly a New World Order.

In 1991when President George H.W. Bush began speaking about a New World Order to beef up his campaign for reelection, evangelist Pat Robertson, who was briefly a presidential candidate, passionately spoke out that "new world order" was actually a code for a secret group that sought to replace Christian society with a worldwide atheistic socialist dictatorship.

Bush, the conspiracy buffs charged, was a member of one of the world's most devilish and powerful secret societies: the Order of Skull and Bones. What was more, according to these same conspiracists, Bush was linked to the Bilderbergers and the Trilateral Commission, dangerous elitist organizations.

At about the same time that President Bush's alleged secret affiliations were being exposed, a number of fundamentalist evangelists began to take their first real notice of the UFO phenomenon and saw the mysterious aerial objects as the "signs in the skies" referred to in apocalyptic literature and in the book of Revelation. It was a short leap or many evangelists to begin to blend accounts of UFOs with the secret societies of top U.S. government officials, politicians, corporate chairmen, international bankers, and many others who sought to bring into being the dreaded "New World Order."

According to the proponents of this cosmic conspiracy, when President Ronald Reagan gave his famous "alien invasion" speech to the entire United Nations General Assembly in September of 1987, he had already secretly advised representatives of the 176 member nations that the leaders of their respective governments must meet the demands of the technologically superior extraterrestrials or be destroyed.

As Reagan said in his speech: "I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet I ask you, is not an alien threat already among us?"

Some UFO researchers have warned that highly placed members of an ancient secret society that can trace its origins beyond the temples of ancient Egypt to Atlantis have established a plan to create a carefully staged "alien invasion" that will convince the masses of the world that a real-life War of the Worlds alien attack is about to begin. People of all nations will believe their leaders who say that it has been learned that the aliens are a benevolent species and that unconditional surrender to them is for everyone's own good.

Immediately following the "surrender" to the aliens, the leaders of the ancient secret society will form a One World Government, a New World Order, thus fulfilling biblical prophecies about a return to the days of Babylon.

Concern over interference by secret societies in the affairs of government was considered very real long before our present-day paranoia. For hundreds of years, certain scholars have worried about global conspiracies being conducted in secret by such groups as the Knights Templar, the Vril, the Thule, the Black Sun, and the Illuminati--who may all be waiting until the pro¬pitious time to complete world domination.

In 1876, Benjamin Disraeli, British prime minister, warned: "The governments of the present day have to deal not merely with other governments, with emperors, kings, and ministers, but also with the secret societies which have everywhere their unscrupulous agents, and can at the last moment upset all the governments' plans."

          Uber is working with UT Austin and the army to build what amount to sky taxis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Uber has chosen a pair of partners to help it develop technology for uberAIR, its proposed ride-share service in the sky. The company will be working with The University of Texas at Austin, as well as the U.S. Army Research Laboratory to, according to UT, develop new rotor technology that will be used by vehicles in the network of what amount to basically sky taxies. Uber is focused for now on working to get flights up and running and have the service commercially available in Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles and in Dubai by 2023. Helping make that a reality will be researchers in the UT Austin Cockrell School of Engineering, who'll be working with the army lab to give an assist to Uber Elevate -- the latter being a kind of catch-all term to encompass anything Uber does in the skies behind uberAIR. According to a report from the university, the Uber project includes vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft that feature an electric design and a cruising speed of between 150 and 200 mph. They'll have a cruising altitude of 1,000 to 2,000 feet and able to complete trips of a maximum 60 miles on a single charge. "UT is uniquely positioned to contribute to this new technology, and Uber has recognized that,” Jayant Sirohi, associate professor in UT’s Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics and the UT team leader on the project, explained in a statement. “In addition to the technical expertise we bring to this area, we also already have a rig to test new rotor configurations right here on campus.” The university describes Sirohi as one of the leading experts in the country on unmanned aerial vehicle technology, VTOL aircraft and fixed- and rotary-wing aeroelasticity. He and his team, among other things, will be studying the use of stacked propellors for VTOL aircraft, which the university says is a novel technology in which two rotor systems are stacked on top of each other and rotate in tandem. By way of explaining the need for the technology, the university goes on to note that "the proposed Uber Elevate launch cities suffer from major traffic congestion, especially during rush hour. For example, the current drive from DFW International Airport to the nearby city of Frisco, a distance of less than 25 miles, could take up to an hour during rush hour. In an uberAIR vehicle, it could take less than 10 minutes." In a white paper available here, Uber says it thinks that long-term VTOLs will be more affordable for most people than owning a car. The reason people think of flying as expensive and an infrequent travel option, the paper explains, is largely a result of low production volume manufacturing of today's aircraft. The paper also adds this fun fact: even though small aircraft and helicopters are of similar size, weight and complexity to a car, they cost about 20 times more. Thus, the race is on to take this to the skies. Other companies, of course, are getting in on the act too, with brands like Audi and Rolls-Royce eyeing this space, so Uber most definitely is not alone here.

          Kansas City 'Anti-Art School' Expands Community While Holding It Together      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A nearly decade-old art movement called Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School is one of the more quirky ways artists find community in metros across the globe. But Kansas City's version is known for taking that quirkiness a step further, and for uniting a new and growing artist community when it needed it most. F ounded in Brooklyn, N.Y., by art school dropout Molly Crabapple in 2005 , Dr. Sketchy’s anti-art sessions are generally held in bars, but in Kansas City, participants head to an old Russian Orthodox church in Kansas City, Kan., that also serves as the live/work space of Rachel McMeachin. The 'sketchy' church McMeachin chose the church for its high ceilings because she is a professional aerialist — an acrobat that spins through the air suspended by long strands of silk. “They’re done in London, New York, Tokyo, and all around the U.S., but I think Kansas City is a little different because it’s always been held in someone’s home. A relatively large home, granted, but someone’s home,"

I am fully aware that the festa season is upon us but why do we have to suffer the noise pollution that petards generate? The normal colourful fireworks are pretty to watch but are preceded/followed by thumping powerful bangs. Is this necessary? It is a fact that the Maltese islands were among the most bombed countries in the early years of WWII. I am sure there are people still living who can remember those darkest of days and are, possibly, not pleased to hear such noise. Come on Malta pull your socks up and banish these petardsforever. I am sure the money spent could be better put to charitable causes.

A new algorithm could allow drones to reduce collisions between birds and planes#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

A lot has been made of the dangers of drones mixing with other aircraft, but one team of engineers is exploring how they can help guard planes from threats rather than present new ones. The work centers on a new algorithm developed specifically to allow a drone to shepherd birds away from flight paths like robotic aerial sheepdogs, and the early results suggest that this could prove an effective way to cut costs and improve safety.

          Best Cameras According to Adventure Travelers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Capturing moments and memories through images isn't anything novel or revolutionary. While the cave drawing charcoal of the past may have been replaced with high-tech lenses, the overall concept and sentiment remain the same -- albeit at a greater frequency today.

With the rise of social media, capturing said moments through snapshots and videos has become almost second nature. With smartphones holding the place as the go-to camera for many. And we won’t argue with that. Smartphone cameras are great. The latest models are engineered to capture vibrant, high-quality shots. However, if you really want to step up your photog game and dive deep into the world of photography, you're going to need a high-quality digital camera.

Since a great camera is an investment and not an impulse buy, we called in the experts -- in the form of professional photographers, adventure travelers and Instagram influencers -- to give you a rundown on the cameras they rely on to capture everything from landscapes to portraits across the globe. Because who better to share the best camera modes and models than the men who have garnered thousands of followers through their work behind the lens?

Sony a7riii Camera


"My Sony a7riii travels with me wherever I go and I’m blown away by the features Sony was able to pack into the camera. The size and weight make it the ideal companion for longer hikes and allow me to pack more lenses and equipment on jobs. Being able to shoot at 42MP allows me the flexibility to crop in on larger scenes and I’ve never seen such crisp image quality in a sensor. One of its most powerful features is the dynamic range and low light performance which allows me to shoot way past sunset handheld. It’s the ultimate combination of performance and design!"

Canon 6D Camera


"I shoot with a Canon 6D and I primarily use a 28-135mm lens because it has such a wide focal range. I use the Canon 6D because it’s a smaller sized camera, but still capable of photographing in full frame. However, I prefer my 17-35mm L lens for night sky stuff because the wide aperture allows me to shoot at slightly lower ISOs. For aerial stuff,  the DJI Mavic Is my go to because it's so compact. All this fits comfortably in my Wandrd PRVKE Pack with ample space left over for chocolate bars and granola."

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Camera


"In one hand, tethered to my wrist for quick access is my Samsung Galaxy Note8, equipped with Moment smartphone camera lenses built at different focal lengths. In my other hand and suspended across my chest will be my ever-trusty Canon EOS 5D Mark II. I heavily employ the available technology in my Samsung in tandem with my Canon camera in my daily life and across my adventures. Now more than ever, the lines are being blurred between smartphones and digital SLR cameras. We can even shoot the Northern Lights on our handheld devices! Using this technology allows me to share professionally-photographed moments faster while in the field, and being waterproof and dust-proof, my device goes with me everywhere. "

SONY A6000 Camera


"This mirrorless, compact camera is the perfect on-the-go model. Don’t let its small size fool you: inside it features speedy autofocus with 179 points of focus, a 24.3 megapixel HD sensor, a BIONZ X image processor, and crazy high ISO range . Video makers will love being able to shoot at full 1080 HD in 60p or 24p. If you’re new to mirrorless cameras, it’s important to note that they don’t have viewfinders . Instead, the A6000 features a beautiful, OLED electronic viewfinder with exposure control, focus zoom and histogram info right on the screen. Use any of Sony’s E-mount lenses to up your game, like the powerful SELP1650 16-50mm or E 55-210mm zoom lenses."

Canon 6D Camera


"I shoot with the Canon 6D. It’s a full frame DSLR with a smaller body size and less weight than the popular Canon 5D series. It’s also quite a bit cheaper than the 5D, yet is an excellent choice for those wanting a quality full-frame camera. I love it because it features built-in wi-fi, so I can connect to my phone, download images on the go, edit and post to Instagram without having to bring along a laptop. It’s also very durable and has survived many wild weather situations with me. 

The lenses I use most regularly are the 16-35mm F4 and the 24-70mm F2.8. These two lenses give me a good variety of focal lengths, with the wide being perfect for landscapes and the versatile 24-70 is an ideal walk around lens. "

GoPro Hero 6


"I've been loving the option of having a GoPro to record video to go along with my travel stories. It just adds another marketable element to my freelancing that I didn't have before. And since it's fully waterproof up to 30 feet, recording fish, coral and shipwrecks has been the best. While it has been a helpful tool, it isn't as reliable as, say, an iPhone. It's been frustrating to see how quickly it eats through the battery and how often it seems to freeze."

Celebrating a shared Singapore
25,000 spectators celebrate diversity and shared Singaporean past at 53rd birthday bash
By Tan Tam Mei, The Straits Times, 10 Aug 2018

Lifting their heads to the sky, the 25,000 people at Singapore's 53rd birthday bash raised their voices to sing Majulah Singapura as fireworks in the formation of five stars shot up into the night sky.

The triumphant pyrotechnic show that ends every National Day Parade was an emotional coda to a day when Singaporeans celebrated their unity in diversity, their home and country, and felt like the sky, indeed, was the limit.

The ninth parade to be held at the Marina Bay floating platform stoked the exhilaration, utilising the elements that have made it a crowd favourite - of sky, sea and that gleaming downtown backdrop.



Making their aerial debut were divers from the Republic of Singapore Navy, who drew thunderous applause as they jumped out of a plane in freefall, opening their chutes to land in the calm waters with their operational gear and fins on.

The cheers got even wilder with the act that followed them, the skydiving Red Lions, who landed gracefully on the platform.

Sports instructor Debbie Poh was thrilled to see the Red Lions and divers together at the show.

"This couldn't have been done elsewhere because the floating platform is right next to the water," said Ms Poh, 30. "It's the perfect venue."



President Halimah Yacob attended the parade for the first time as Singapore's head of state. The crowd rose to its feet as one, cheering and waving flags at her arrival.

Singapore's first female president, with her trademark warmth, stayed after the parade was over to mingle with fellow Singaporeans.

At home, Singaporeans watching the sundown parade on TV got the best view when spectators in the stands held up red and white placards from their funpacks, to form the sentence "WE (heart) SG".

It was a smart idea, said student Jasdev Singh, 14. "The coordination required is really cool and the results turned out awesome... It shows how each one of us can play our part and contribute."



Also contributing were more than 3,000 participants, who performed in the spectacular mass displays of song and dance that showcased home-grown creativity.

We are Singapore, said the 2018 National Day Parade. It was also the year's theme song - a 1987 classic by Hugh Harrison made new by musician Charlie Lim, but still familiar and beloved.

Ms Doris Lim, 40, who works in the IT industry, said the remade version was refreshing. Of the new lyrics, she said: "They are as meaningful as the old ones."



The affection for a shared Singaporean past was palpable, as the audience sang heartily along with the combined schools choir - back after five years - to National Day favourites such as Chan Mali Chan and Munnaeru Vaalibaa.

Like the parades of previous years, this one melded people's favourite things about Singapore into a satisfying whole.

The past was very much with the present, when Singaporeans planted their feet and stood together, and looked to the future.





































































Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's 2018 National Day Message






Bold, creative planning key to reimagining the future: PM Lee
He points to Kampung Admiralty, where Govt has transformed delivery of key public services
By Tham Yuen-C, Senior Political Correspondent, The Straits Times, 9 Aug 2018

The work of building Singapore is not done, and in reimagining the future, bold, creative planning is paramount, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said yesterday.

Giving an example of this innovative vision, PM Lee cited Kampung Admiralty, the site he chose to deliver his message for National Day this year.

The estate in Woodlands is Singapore's first retirement community, and is also where the Government has transformed the way it delivers education, healthcare and housing to improve lives, he said, adding that these are the three key concerns of Singaporeans when they fret about the cost of living.

"In Singapore, we ensure these key public services are both of high quality and affordable for all Singaporeans, rich or poor. This is how we have helped families to manage their cost of living and given an extra hand to those who need it. For more than five decades, this approach has worked well," he said.

"We are not done building Singapore yet. By planning boldly and creatively, we can reimagine Singapore, remake our heartlands and rejuvenate our communities."



The 11-storey Kampung Admiralty complex took in its first residents last August, and comprises public housing integrated with healthcare, wellness and eldercare facilities plus a childcare centre.

PM Lee described it as a "high-rise kampung where residents are out and about, socialising with family, friends and neighbours, and yet never too far from home".

It is where education, healthcare and housing policies come together for the residents in a "tangible and holistic way", he said, adding that it is a model for future public housing.

Similarly, across Singapore, childcare centres have been opened to ensure all children can have a good start in life, and community healthcare facilities are in the works to bring quality care to people where they live, he added.

"These services will always be affordable," he said.



As for existing public housing estates, the Housing Board will continue to maintain and upgrade them, he said.

Alluding to the hotly discussed issue of the fate of HDB flats when their 99-year leases run out, he added: "Though the leases still have many years to run, we should think ahead about how we can keep older estates in good living condition, and also start to redevelop them, in order to build new homes and towns for future generations."

Unlike in previous National Day messages, PM Lee did not mention the economy's forecast growth figures for the year. But he noted that the economy has continued to grow steadily, around 3 per cent to 3.5 per cent in recent years.

He cautioned, though, that worsening trade tensions between major economies could have repercussions for Singapore, and may even affect international security.

Though tensions in the Korean peninsula had eased after Singapore successfully hosted the summit between United States President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un two months ago, PM Lee said, there are many more challenges to overcome before denuclearisation and peace can be achieved.

Closer to home, PM Lee said Singapore will "strive for good relations with Malaysia, based on mutual benefit and respect" and "continue to work with Indonesia to further our wide-ranging cooperation".



Wrapping up, he said that building Singapore for the next 50 years will be a massive undertaking that will last more than a generation.

"To sustain this project, we will need a strong economy and sound government finances. Most importantly, we need social cohesion, political stability and good government for many years... to carry out and realise our vision."





























Former president Tony Tan tops National Day 2018 awards list
By Elgin Toh, Deputy Political Editor, The Straits Times, 10 Aug 2018

Former president Tony Tan Keng Yam, 78, has been conferred the nation's highest civilian honour, the Order of Temasek (First Class). He tops this year's National Day awards list of 4,041 civilian and 583 military recipients.

Dr Tan, whose public service career spanned nearly four decades, said he was "deeply humbled and greatly honoured" by the award.

In a statement, he said: "Together with many of my generation, I was privileged to serve my country, to see it grow and thrive. It has been truly rewarding to work for, and alongside, so many Singaporeans who envisioned a better future for their children and grandchildren."



Dr Tan is the ninth Singaporean in history to receive the Order of Temasek (First Class). The last to be given the honour was former minister S. Dhanabalan, in 2015. Other recipients were: former presidents S R Nathan and Wee Kim Wee, former ministers Goh Keng Swee, S. Rajaratnam, Hon Sui Sen and Lim Kim San, and former chief justice Yong Pung How.

Dr Tan earned a first-class honours degree in physics from the University of Singapore. He also has a master's degree in operations research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Adelaide.

In 1979, he left his job as general manager of OCBC Bank to enter politics, winning a by-election for the Sembawang seat. He was MP for Sembawang for the next 27 years.

In his ministerial career, he helmed five ministries, starting with education. He was credited for expanding vocational and technical training opportunities and setting up Singapore's third university, the Singapore Management University.

Dr Tan also helmed the finance, health, trade and industry and defence ministries. In 1995, he became deputy prime minister, a role he stayed in for a decade. He left politics in 2006. He was founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew's first choice to be Singapore's second prime minister, but he declined the post. Mr Lee once praised him for his quick mind and decisiveness. "He would say 'yes or no' and he would stick to it," said Mr Lee. Dr Tan, who is married and has four children, was elected Singapore's seventh president, and served one term from 2011 to 2017.



Mr Dhanabalan paid tribute to his former Cabinet colleague, noting his significant contribution in running for the presidency. The other candidates in the 2011 election made promises beyond the constitutional role of the president, said Mr Dhanabalan, noting: "Dr Tony Tan entered the fray and brought sanity to the whole process."

Coming after Dr Tan in the awards list are two recipients of the Distinguished Service Order: Singapore University of Technology and Design's former chairman Philip Ng Chee Tat, and National University of Singapore Board of Trustees' former chairman Wong Ngit Liong.

Mr Ng, 59, is chief executive of property giant Far East Organization while Mr Wong, 77, founded and heads Venture Corporation.

Besides recognising individuals who have served the nation, this year's National Day awards also paid tribute to two groups which worked on the Pedra Branca case and the Trump-Kim Summit. Formed from various ministries and agencies, the groups received the President's Certificate of Commendation.

As Singaporeans prepare to celebrate National Day today, Dr Tan called on one and all to continue the task of nation-building, saying: "Our nation remains a work in progress, and Singapore needs the service of men and women from all walks of life to build on our strong foundations to ensure an even brighter future for our nation."

A new algorithm could allow drones to reduce collisions between birds and planes#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

A lot has been made of the dangers of drones mixing with other aircraft, but one team of engineers is exploring how they can help guard planes from threats rather than present new ones. The work centers on a new algorithm developed specifically to allow a drone to shepherd birds away from flight paths like robotic aerial sheepdogs, and the early results suggest that this could prove an effective way to cut costs and improve safety.

Boston: Contributor Jan Nargi reviews MOULIN ROUGE, writing "Satine (a powerful Karen Olivo) is the glittering diamond in the rough at the Moulin Rouge. She is the star attraction promoted (and pimped out) by the club's owner and impresario Harold Zidler (a fabulously flamboyant Danny Burstein). When the club falls on hard times, Zidler coerces Satine into becoming the courtesan to the psychopathic Duke of Monroth (a sneering Tam Mutu) in exchange for a hefty infusion of cash."


Salt Lake City: Contributor Tyler Hinton reviews THE PRINCE OF EGPYT at Tuacahn, writing "Director Scott S. Anderson carefully balances this understated theatricality with thrilling visual spectacle. The natural setting of the amphitheater is gorgeous, with imposing red rock cliffs that make the audience feel they are actually in Egypt as the story unfolds. The backdrop is utilized to great success by scenic designer Brad Shelton, lighting designer Cory Pattak, and projection designer Jon Infante. Massive obelisk and sphinx set pieces look as if they were hewn from the red rock, the cliffs and trees are lit in different ways at just the right moments to augment the action, and projections of effects such as lightning and fiery hail reflect from the dark cliffs to astonishing effect."


Nashville: Contributor Jeffrey Ellis reviews SISTER ACT, writing "The focus and commitment of Wilkinson's talented cast is apparent from the very first scene, never once flagging for the two-and-a-half hours of playing time during which Deloris and her cohorts cavort about the magical floating stage at Chaffin's (yep, the stage once again descends from the flyspace above to the delight of audiences) to bring the farfetched, if immensely entertaining, story to life. Based on the 1992 film that starred Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith."


UK / West End: Contributor Marianka Swain reviews BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL at Southwark Playhouse, writing "Leading a company brimming with triple-threat talent, Robyn McIntyre nicely conveys Campbell's intensity and fervent desire to create one perfect moment now - ahead of an uncertain adult future. Chisara Agor brings nuance to Danielle, whose toughness acts as a shield, and who's allowed to be dignified and also a little petty. Both have strong vocals and slick moves."


Austin: Contributor Jesse Griffith reviews THE MUSIC MAN at The Long Center, writing "This is just an all-around fine production. I watched each moment with my old man's hawk-eye and I caught not one little hitch. When directors tell actors that "If you can see the audience they can see you", they had best heed this good advice. Old 'show trash' like me can spot a hesitation or a flubbed line or really any imperfection instantly."


UK / West End: Contributor Charlie Wilks reviews CLUB SWIZZLE at Roundhouse, writing "Everything you see feels like something new. From clowning to aerial hoop, burlesque to pole dancing, there's something in this show for everyone's taste level. The action you see is underscored to perfect time by a live bad, who improvise along to what's happening in front of them. And of course there's a little bit of audience participation, which if anything like tonight is to go by, is sure to be a definite highlight."


Tampa: Contributor Deborah Bostock-Kelley reviews ANNIE at University Area CDC, writing "Despite wishing the musical itself showed the relationship build between Annie and Daddy Warbucks, the song "Why Should I Change A Thing" was sung with beautiful emotional uncertainty by Rick. KariAnn made an excellent decision adding in the optional song to fill in the storyline. Annie and Rick had a unique father daughter chemistry. When he sang "Something Was Missing," you believed he'd been unknowingly looking for Annie as much as Annie was looking for her parents. They both found a chance to love and be loved."

Boston: Contributor Jan Nargi reviews MOULIN ROUGE, writing "Satine (a powerful Karen Olivo) is the glittering diamond in the rough at the Moulin Rouge. She is the star attraction promoted (and pimped out) by the club's owner and impresario Harold Zidler (a fabulously flamboyant Danny Burstein). When the club falls on hard times, Zidler coerces Satine into becoming the courtesan to the psychopathic Duke of Monroth (a sneering Tam Mutu) in exchange for a hefty infusion of cash."


Salt Lake City: Contributor Tyler Hinton reviews THE PRINCE OF EGPYT at Tuacahn, writing "Director Scott S. Anderson carefully balances this understated theatricality with thrilling visual spectacle. The natural setting of the amphitheater is gorgeous, with imposing red rock cliffs that make the audience feel they are actually in Egypt as the story unfolds. The backdrop is utilized to great success by scenic designer Brad Shelton, lighting designer Cory Pattak, and projection designer Jon Infante. Massive obelisk and sphinx set pieces look as if they were hewn from the red rock, the cliffs and trees are lit in different ways at just the right moments to augment the action, and projections of effects such as lightning and fiery hail reflect from the dark cliffs to astonishing effect."


Nashville: Contributor Jeffrey Ellis reviews SISTER ACT, writing "The focus and commitment of Wilkinson's talented cast is apparent from the very first scene, never once flagging for the two-and-a-half hours of playing time during which Deloris and her cohorts cavort about the magical floating stage at Chaffin's (yep, the stage once again descends from the flyspace above to the delight of audiences) to bring the farfetched, if immensely entertaining, story to life. Based on the 1992 film that starred Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith."


UK / West End: Contributor Marianka Swain reviews BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL at Southwark Playhouse, writing "Leading a company brimming with triple-threat talent, Robyn McIntyre nicely conveys Campbell's intensity and fervent desire to create one perfect moment now - ahead of an uncertain adult future. Chisara Agor brings nuance to Danielle, whose toughness acts as a shield, and who's allowed to be dignified and also a little petty. Both have strong vocals and slick moves."


Austin: Contributor Jesse Griffith reviews THE MUSIC MAN at The Long Center, writing "This is just an all-around fine production. I watched each moment with my old man's hawk-eye and I caught not one little hitch. When directors tell actors that "If you can see the audience they can see you", they had best heed this good advice. Old 'show trash' like me can spot a hesitation or a flubbed line or really any imperfection instantly."


UK / West End: Contributor Charlie Wilks reviews CLUB SWIZZLE at Roundhouse, writing "Everything you see feels like something new. From clowning to aerial hoop, burlesque to pole dancing, there's something in this show for everyone's taste level. The action you see is underscored to perfect time by a live bad, who improvise along to what's happening in front of them. And of course there's a little bit of audience participation, which if anything like tonight is to go by, is sure to be a definite highlight."


Tampa: Contributor Deborah Bostock-Kelley reviews ANNIE at University Area CDC, writing "Despite wishing the musical itself showed the relationship build between Annie and Daddy Warbucks, the song "Why Should I Change A Thing" was sung with beautiful emotional uncertainty by Rick. KariAnn made an excellent decision adding in the optional song to fill in the storyline. Annie and Rick had a unique father daughter chemistry. When he sang "Something Was Missing," you believed he'd been unknowingly looking for Annie as much as Annie was looking for her parents. They both found a chance to love and be loved."

Efficiency First California posted a blog post

On-The-Job Experience: Why Electrification Is Better And Cheaper

Sean Armstrong is the Managing Principal of Redwood Energy, one of the nation’s leading ZNE design firms and an Efficiency First California board member. His argument for electrification is based on his extensive experience in multifamily housing. The conventional wisdom is that when it comes to home heating, gas is cheap. So why is the trend toward building all-electric homes accelerating?It turns out that building an all-electric home actually costs at least $4,500 less than a gas-powered one, according to KB Homes and City Ventures (SF Chronicle 4/20/16 by CEC and CAISO Commissioners Hochschild and Ferron). In apartments, I have documented $3,500 savings per residence by building all-electric.These initial building savings have always been there, and in temperate climates, running air source heat pumps has been cost-effective. However, cold climate performance has historically been the Achilles Heel of air source heat pumps. Below 40 degrees Fahrenheit the compressor wouldn’t put out heat, and electric resistance heaters were required—an option that became too expensive in the 1970s in all but the hydro-heavy Pacific Northwest.That was then—for almost 15 years now there have been inverter-controlled compressors that can operate inside the Arctic Circle and are effective down to 27 degrees below zero, as proven by the Canadian ZNE homes designed by Habitat Studio. Growth in all-electric homes with heat pumps is a national phenomenon, illustrated by ICF International in their 2016 Propane Market Outlook that was commissioned by the propane industry (Figure 1). According to this report, since at least 2010 space heating with electricity has gained more market share than any other source in almost every county in the United States. Mentally compare this map to the 2016 Electoral Map, and you can see that electrification is a non-partisan trend.Figure 1. Electric heating has gained market share nation-wide since at least 2010.(Source: 2016 Propane Market Outlook, ICF International)My experience in multifamily electrificationThe trend to electrify buildings is accelerating because they’re cheaper to build, and in most states, they are cheaper to operate. This unconventional understanding came to me slowly, and I thought it might be helpful for me to share the story of how I learned about all-electric construction with you, my peers in building science.In 2005 I was hired out of my first career as a local high school science teacher to be a project manager for six years with Danco Communities, an affordable housing developer and the largest general contractor in our area. I learned at Danco that estimating construction costs is core to the business of building—profits are 0 to 15 percent and depend on the accuracy of the initial cost estimate. As a Project Manager, I had to cost-estimate proposed subdivisions, apartment complexes, and even a small town. I particularly enjoyed learning about construction pricing for green building features --I had spent a decade training at HSU’s Campus Center for Appropriate Technology (Figure 2), a student-led demonstration house on campus for renewable energy and sustainable living. Our goal at CCAT was to “dispel the myth that living lightly on the Earth is either burdensome or difficult.” I learned that people on tours were excited to retrofit their homes and install solar arrays, but worried about upfront financing—money, not willingness, was the barrier.Figure 2. The Campus Center for Appropriate Technology at HSU is student-led and funded, giving Co-Director students like the author in 1999 the opportunity to learn what it costs to install new 2.3 kW PV array, 500W wind turbine, pedal-powered TV, and biodiesel refinery.(Source: ccat.humboldt.edu)At my Danco developer job it was the same situation as a CCAT tour—my CEO and VP of Construction were reasonably supportive of green building, but they saved their deepest enthusiasm for any new trick that would lower old costs. The faded company town of Samoa was my biggest challenge—100 existing homes and 300 new ones planned. The gas line ran down Main St. out to the old lumber mill, but extending gas to the homes would have cost $15,000 per house, almost double the cost of using existing wiring and installing efficient electric heat pumps to replace propane water heaters and wood stoves.Our experience at Samoa was typical. In April of 2017, Stone Energy Associates submitted a study to the California Energy Commission using actual quotes to illustrate the range of costs for installation of gas heating. As Table 1 shows, the cost just to install the gas lateral to the building from the main pipe in the street ranges from $1,000 to nearly $15,000. Table 2 shows the cost of plumbing gas inside the walls to gas appliances--$200 to $1,000 more per building. In other words, it can cost up to twenty thousand dollars to install gas from the street and through the house—not cheap.Table 1. Additional Cost of Installing a Gas Lateral from the Main to the Gas Meter.(Source: SEA letter to the CEC, Docket # 16-BSTD-06 4/21/17)Table 2. Additional Gas Fixture Costs(Source: SEA letter to the CEC, Docket # 16-BSTD-06 4/21/17)And just when you thought gas costs couldn’t get worse, it turns out that buying a gas furnace with AC is 50% more expensive than buying the same AC without a furnance, but with heat pump functionality. A heat pump is just a reversible air conditioner—it has a reversible pump, an extra thermal expansion valve, and a little more programming. It’s a cheap to change an AC into a heater, about $200, but adding a gas furnace costs $800-$1200. It’s the same with Carrier, Goodman, and other manufacturers—heat pumps are cheaper to buy than identical air conditioners with a furnace.Cheaper to BuildIn my experience at Danco, we learned that all told, avoiding the cost of gas saved at least $3,500 per apartment, similar to the finding of KB Homes that they saved $4,500 per house. $3,500 per apartment moves the dial—it’s enough to pay for all HERs inspections and efficiency upgrades required for certifying a house to Energy Star for Homes, which is the most expensive and significant green building commitment within programs like LEED.Using the savings from all-electric design to invest upgrading to LEED Platinum, Zero Net Energy housing, Danco’s rural affordable housing could finally beat out the big city competition for scarce Federal grant and loan funds, and Plaza Point is now a local landmark in rural downtown Arcata—twenty-nine 107% solar powered, LEED Platinum low-income senior apartments. Going all-electric and Zero Net Energy has won Danco projects in small towns like Eureka, Fortuna, Fort Bragg (see HEM cover story, Fall ’15), Samoa, Bakersfield and Crescent City. Now I work under the auspices of Redwood Energy, and since 2011 we have helped more than 2000 low-income apartments get built with the competitive strategy of cost-savings with all-electric construction, and cheap electricity pre-purchased via a ZNE-scale solar array.  Lest you think I only play with other people’s money, in 2008 my wife and I bought an old 1916 farmhouse requiring strategic, cost-effective retrofits with limited funds. We had four-month-old premature twins to keep warm, so after insulating the floor to R-13 with open cell foam for $3,000, we replaced the 55 percent efficient gas wall heater with a 330 percent efficient (HSPF 11) air source heat pump for $2,400. This combination allowed us to keep toasty warm, and dramatically lowered our utility bills. It worked for other low-income households, and it worked for us too.The old thinking is “gas is cheap” but today’s math shows this is wrong. True, a BTU of gas heat is one-third the cost of a BTU of electric resistance heat, but as our experience showed, a 330 percent efficient heat pump uses one-sixth the energy of a 55 percent efficient wall furnace. Our heating budget was cut in half with electrification. Jeff Harkness, a Redwood Energy graduate student intern, kindly compared the energy use of a house like mine and ran it through the EIA average energy pricing for each state. We found that in every state of the U.S., a retrofit like ours would lower a family’s monthly utility bills (Figure 3).Figure 3. Comparative bills analysis showing that an existing low-performance gas house would save monthly utility costs with a high-performance electric retrofit in every state.A nice example of the utility bill savings from going all-electric is the inspiring Trinity River Elder Village on the Native Sovereign Nation of the Hoopa Indians in rural Northern California. The village of 13 Energy Star-certified homes is 45 miles from a natural gas line, and in this remote area, propane costs are among the highest in the nation. The question remained whether an all-electric or highly efficient propane package would produce the lower bills, so we set up a side-by-side comparison (Table 3). Even a 95 percent efficient propane furnace cost more than a mid-efficiency ducted heat pump (10 HSPF, 19 SEER), and all-electric shaved $15 off a house’s monthly utility bills (Table 4). Had this 2015 project used top-of-the-market heat pumps available today (HSPF 14, SEER 33), the bills would be even lower. Importantly, adding solar power to an electric home makes for the lowest bills. Keeping propane reduces the bill available for solar offset, a problem when utility bill reductions via solar arrays raise needed revenue.Table 3.Table 4.(Tables 3 and 4 show an aerial photo of the completed ZNE homes, a comparison of efficiency measures and the resulting utility bills that favor all-electric.)Natural gas is more expensive than electricity for hot water heating as well. Ken Rider, Advisor to California Energy Commissioner Hochschild, studied the delivered cost of water heating, comparing high-performance, 0.96 EF natural- gas combustion (red with stars in Figure 4) to a 3.0 EF midrange heat pump (blue with stars in Figure 4). Note that over the last 30 years, the two are neck and neck with real-world pricing. But with current heat pump water heaters now operating at 3.84 EF, there is no natural-gas product that can compete.Figure 4. Energy pricing comparison of domestic hot water fuels and efficiencies by Ken Rider, advisor to California Energy Commissioner Hochschild.Cheaper to OperateThe fact that all-electric is cheaper to build has always been true, and for a few decades after the second World War electricity was also cheaper per BTU than fuels. But the OPEC Oil Embargoes of 1973 and 1979 quadrupled electricity prices in the U.S., and it took decades of efficiency investments to bring all-electric operating costs back down. Now that electricity is cheaper again, it’s fun to revisit that thirty-year period between the 1940s and 1970s.For example, to spread the good news about low costs with all-electric design, in 1954 180 utilities teamed up and hired Ronald Reagan to be the face of a publicity campaign called Gold Medallion Homes. The future governor and president first lent his talents to the General Electric Theater weekly radio show and then filmed tours of his Pacific Palisades mansion with his wife, Nancy. Reagan had so much charisma that he succeeded in selling colored light bulbs in a black and white film.More than a million Gold Medallion Homes were built nationwide until the early 1970s. A fancy futuristic home came with the iconic statement Live Better Electrically emblazoned on a brass Gold Medallion plaque mounted next to the doorbell, on ashtrays, key chains, wall clocks and even cufflinks emblazoned with the phrase. During this period Julia Child’s “French Chef” show taught American’s how to cook haute cuisine on resistance element stoves with the support of an electric utility. The Live Better Electrically movement was like today’s Energy Star program but run by master Hollywood marketers with an order of magnitude more money.In a prescient 1958 Live Better Electrically advertisement, one is introduced to an “all-electric heat pump” that “provides year-round comfort from a single unit which automatically heats or cools as the weather requires.” The 1950s era heat pumps had serious limitations—the compressors stopped working at 35 degrees, and at which point more expensive electric resistance heating kicked in, using 2.5 times as much energy as the compressor. This limited heat pumps to the warm South and the hydroelectric Northwest. Today’s inverter-driven air source heat pumps operate at an amazing 27 degrees below zero, low enough to go all-electric in almost any climate on Earth.It was true once, in some parts of the country, that operating with natural gas cost less than operating with a heat pump. This is no longer true—electricity is cheaper. It was once true that drilling for domestic natural gas was a national security strategy to prevent the impact of oil embargoes. This also is no longer true—natural gas represents climate change and profound international instability. Now that wind farms and solar fields are cheaper to build and operate than gas plants, there is simply no reason to waste money on gas for heating—better to save it for making plastic.This blog was originally posted at www.efficiencyfirstca.orgSee More

Boston: Contributor Jan Nargi reviews MOULIN ROUGE, writing "Satine (a powerful Karen Olivo) is the glittering diamond in the rough at the Moulin Rouge. She is the star attraction promoted (and pimped out) by the club's owner and impresario Harold Zidler (a fabulously flamboyant Danny Burstein). When the club falls on hard times, Zidler coerces Satine into becoming the courtesan to the psychopathic Duke of Monroth (a sneering Tam Mutu) in exchange for a hefty infusion of cash."


Salt Lake City: Contributor Tyler Hinton reviews THE PRINCE OF EGPYT at Tuacahn, writing "Director Scott S. Anderson carefully balances this understated theatricality with thrilling visual spectacle. The natural setting of the amphitheater is gorgeous, with imposing red rock cliffs that make the audience feel they are actually in Egypt as the story unfolds. The backdrop is utilized to great success by scenic designer Brad Shelton, lighting designer Cory Pattak, and projection designer Jon Infante. Massive obelisk and sphinx set pieces look as if they were hewn from the red rock, the cliffs and trees are lit in different ways at just the right moments to augment the action, and projections of effects such as lightning and fiery hail reflect from the dark cliffs to astonishing effect."


Nashville: Contributor Jeffrey Ellis reviews SISTER ACT, writing "The focus and commitment of Wilkinson's talented cast is apparent from the very first scene, never once flagging for the two-and-a-half hours of playing time during which Deloris and her cohorts cavort about the magical floating stage at Chaffin's (yep, the stage once again descends from the flyspace above to the delight of audiences) to bring the farfetched, if immensely entertaining, story to life. Based on the 1992 film that starred Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith."


UK / West End: Contributor Marianka Swain reviews BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL at Southwark Playhouse, writing "Leading a company brimming with triple-threat talent, Robyn McIntyre nicely conveys Campbell's intensity and fervent desire to create one perfect moment now - ahead of an uncertain adult future. Chisara Agor brings nuance to Danielle, whose toughness acts as a shield, and who's allowed to be dignified and also a little petty. Both have strong vocals and slick moves."


Austin: Contributor Jesse Griffith reviews THE MUSIC MAN at The Long Center, writing "This is just an all-around fine production. I watched each moment with my old man's hawk-eye and I caught not one little hitch. When directors tell actors that "If you can see the audience they can see you", they had best heed this good advice. Old 'show trash' like me can spot a hesitation or a flubbed line or really any imperfection instantly."


UK / West End: Contributor Charlie Wilks reviews CLUB SWIZZLE at Roundhouse, writing "Everything you see feels like something new. From clowning to aerial hoop, burlesque to pole dancing, there's something in this show for everyone's taste level. The action you see is underscored to perfect time by a live bad, who improvise along to what's happening in front of them. And of course there's a little bit of audience participation, which if anything like tonight is to go by, is sure to be a definite highlight."


Tampa: Contributor Deborah Bostock-Kelley reviews ANNIE at University Area CDC, writing "Despite wishing the musical itself showed the relationship build between Annie and Daddy Warbucks, the song "Why Should I Change A Thing" was sung with beautiful emotional uncertainty by Rick. KariAnn made an excellent decision adding in the optional song to fill in the storyline. Annie and Rick had a unique father daughter chemistry. When he sang "Something Was Missing," you believed he'd been unknowingly looking for Annie as much as Annie was looking for her parents. They both found a chance to love and be loved."

Sky Riders (1976)
Genre: Action | Adventure | Thriller
Country: USA | Director: Douglas Hickox

Robert Culp plays Bracken, whose life seems perfect until his wife Ellen and their children are kidnapped by terrorists one day. After failed attempts to capture them back by the police, Ellen's ex husband enters the fray and plans his own rescue attempt. James Coburn plays McCabe, Ellen's ex-husband who hires a crew of professional hang gliders to help him rescue her and the kids from the terrorist's mountain top lair. 

Directed with tight, brisk, straight-down-the-line concise and unpretentious razor efficiency by Douglas Hickox, from a similarly taut, smart and sharply honed script by Jack DeWitt, Stanley Mann and Garry Michael White, further enhanced by one of Lalo Schifrin's customary lush, stirring and majestic full orchestra scores, a pleasingly prompt, unflagging pace, top-rate aerial photography, frequent outbursts of excitingly fast'n'furious violence, solid acting, glossy production values, a properly no-nonsense let's get down to brass tacks attitude, and a wild bullets and bodies a flyin' everywhere mondo destructo shoot 'em up finale, this nifty little number overall sizes up as a satisfyingly terse and to the point action/suspense thriller.

Drone Security & Surveillance Operations Made Easy

Drones have already been in use in the security and surveillance industry, bringing a significant change in how the operations are carried out. However, most current aerial security and surveillance systems are either tied to a particular drone hardware, or need significant manual intervention during operation. These solutions lack critical features and software capabilities, such as, AI and machine learning for automated alerts, automatic mission scheduling, compatibility with wide-range of drone hardware, etc. This makes it expensive, and often infeasible, to deploy the drone-based security/surveillance solutions at scale.Drones have already established the value that they bring to the table, in terms of mobility, unrestricted bird’s eye view and accessibility. The focus is now on efficiencies and realising a meaningful return on investment for wide commercial adoption. This calls for integration of “intelligence” and “connectivity” with drones, to build completely automated and integrated workflows.FlytSecurity offers a plug-and-play, drone-agnostic, SaaS platform to quickly deploy and scale drone-based automated security operations. This significantly cuts down the cost of development and time to market, translating into an attractive ROI for the drone security service providers. With a wide range of features, like, 4G/LTE connectivity over unlimited range, live video, control and telemetry, fleet management (for simultaneous coverage of a large, distributed facilities), AI/ML for automated alerts, automated mission schedules, FlytSecurity enables fully-automated 24×7 operations at scale. Compatibility with any drone hardware, further makes FlytSecurity easy to adapt to variety of customer requirements (large/small drone, long/short endurance, quad-planes/multicopters, thermal/RGB sensor, etc.), and makes it easy to upgrade hardware at any time.For early access to FlytSecurity, please visit: https://flytsecurity.aiRead how FlytSecurity is transforming drone security & surveillance operationsSee More

Tampa: Contributor Deborah Bostock-Kelley reviews ANNIE at University Area CDC, writing "Despite wishing the musical itself showed the relationship build between Annie and Daddy Warbucks, the song "Why Should I Change A Thing" was sung with beautiful emotional uncertainty by Rick. KariAnn made an excellent decision adding in the optional song to fill in the storyline. Annie and Rick had a unique father daughter chemistry. When he sang "Something Was Missing," you believed he'd been unknowingly looking for Annie as much as Annie was looking for her parents. They both found a chance to love and be loved."

          Regional Roundup: Top New Features This Week Around Our BroadwayWorld 8/10 - MOULIN ROUGE, THE PRINCE OF EGYPT and More!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

BroadwayWorld presents a comprehensive weekly roundup of regional stories around our Broadway World, which include videos, editor spotlights, regional reviews and more. This week, we feature MOULIN ROUGE, THE PRINCE OF EGYPT and More!

Check out our top features from around the BroadwayWorld below! Want more great global content? Check out our "Around The World" section!


Boston: Contributor Jan Nargi reviews MOULIN ROUGE, writing "Satine (a powerful Karen Olivo) is the glittering diamond in the rough at the Moulin Rouge. She is the star attraction promoted (and pimped out) by the club's owner and impresario Harold Zidler (a fabulously flamboyant Danny Burstein). When the club falls on hard times, Zidler coerces Satine into becoming the courtesan to the psychopathic Duke of Monroth (a sneering Tam Mutu) in exchange for a hefty infusion of cash."


Salt Lake City: Contributor Tyler Hinton reviews THE PRINCE OF EGPYT at Tuacahn, writing "Director Scott S. Anderson carefully balances this understated theatricality with thrilling visual spectacle. The natural setting of the amphitheater is gorgeous, with imposing red rock cliffs that make the audience feel they are actually in Egypt as the story unfolds. The backdrop is utilized to great success by scenic designer Brad Shelton, lighting designer Cory Pattak, and projection designer Jon Infante. Massive obelisk and sphinx set pieces look as if they were hewn from the red rock, the cliffs and trees are lit in different ways at just the right moments to augment the action, and projections of effects such as lightning and fiery hail reflect from the dark cliffs to astonishing effect."


Nashville: Contributor Jeffrey Ellis reviews SISTER ACT, writing "The focus and commitment of Wilkinson's talented cast is apparent from the very first scene, never once flagging for the two-and-a-half hours of playing time during which Deloris and her cohorts cavort about the magical floating stage at Chaffin's (yep, the stage once again descends from the flyspace above to the delight of audiences) to bring the farfetched, if immensely entertaining, story to life. Based on the 1992 film that starred Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith."


UK / West End: Contributor Marianka Swain reviews BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL at Southwark Playhouse, writing "Leading a company brimming with triple-threat talent, Robyn McIntyre nicely conveys Campbell's intensity and fervent desire to create one perfect moment now - ahead of an uncertain adult future. Chisara Agor brings nuance to Danielle, whose toughness acts as a shield, and who's allowed to be dignified and also a little petty. Both have strong vocals and slick moves."


Austin: Contributor Jesse Griffith reviews THE MUSIC MAN at The Long Center, writing "This is just an all-around fine production. I watched each moment with my old man's hawk-eye and I caught not one little hitch. When directors tell actors that "If you can see the audience they can see you", they had best heed this good advice. Old 'show trash' like me can spot a hesitation or a flubbed line or really any imperfection instantly."


UK / West End: Contributor Charlie Wilks reviews CLUB SWIZZLE at Roundhouse, writing "Everything you see feels like something new. From clowning to aerial hoop, burlesque to pole dancing, there's something in this show for everyone's taste level. The action you see is underscored to perfect time by a live bad, who improvise along to what's happening in front of them. And of course there's a little bit of audience participation, which if anything like tonight is to go by, is sure to be a definite highlight."

          Russian air defense downs another hostile drone approaching Khmeimim air base in Syria      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Russian air defenses in Syria have shot down yet another unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone, that was approaching the Khmeimim air base from terrorist-controlled territory, the military has said. Shooting down hostile drones has become somewhat of a routine for the Russian forces stationed in Syria's Latakia province. Over the past month the Russian air defenses have neutralized at least 25 drones approaching Khmeimim armed with various types of explosives. On Thursday, yet another UAV was spotted on approach, and the target was successfully shot down by the air defense systems at a safe distance from the base, the head of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of opposing sides in Syria confirmed.

          Home is Where the Art Is      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Painted utility boxes, colorful murals, more artists per capita than any other place in California ... Eureka, art has found it! The city by the bay is about to get a bit splashier as local and international artists set upon its streets and liven them up with new murals and art during The Eureka Street Art Festival, Aug. 11-18 (free).

Old Town will grow brighter and more visually diverse all week with the creation of more than 15 new pieces of artwork — focusing primarily on Opera Alley, which runs between Second and Third streets. Participating artists include visitors Cix (Mexico City), Elle (New York), Xavi Panneton (Oregon) and Dave Van Patten (Long Beach). Local artists include Anna Sofia Amezcua, Phyllis Barba, Julie McNeil, Blake Regan, Stock Schlueter and Rachel Schlueter. In addition to the artists creating all week, the festival will also feature art talks, events and daily mural tours at 5:30 p.m. leaving from the Black Faun Gallery. On Saturday, Aug. 18, the festival culminates with the Opera Alley Street Party from noon to 6 p.m. to celebrate the completion of the work (free). Check out the finished artwork, as well as live painting, while cruising the three beer gardens, a Kids' Zone with crafting activities brought to you by SCRAP Humboldt, face painting and chalk art, and live music and performances by Bandemonium, the Synapsis Aerial Collective, Barnett and the Boys, the James Zeller Trio, 707 Band, the Cold Light of Day and various DJs.

She is the star attraction promoted (and pimped out) by the club's owner and impresario Harold Zidler (a fabulously flamboyant Danny Burstein).

Chisara Agor brings nuance to Danielle, whose toughness acts as a shield, and who's allowed to be dignified and also a little petty. Both have strong vocals and slick moves."


Austin: Contributor Jesse Griffith reviews THE MUSIC MAN at The Long Center, writing "This is just an all-around fine production. I watched each moment with my old man's hawk-eye and I caught not one little hitch. When directors tell actors that "If you can see the audience they can see you", they had best heed this good advice. Old 'show trash' like me can spot a hesitation or a flubbed line or really any imperfection instantly."


UK / West End: Contributor Charlie Wilks reviews CLUB SWIZZLE at Roundhouse, writing "Everything you see feels like something new. From clowning to aerial hoop, burlesque to pole dancing, there's something in this show for everyone's taste level. The action you see is underscored to perfect time by a live bad, who improvise along to what's happening in front of them. And of course there's a little bit of audience participation, which if anything like tonight is to go by, is sure to be a definite highlight."


Tampa: Contributor Deborah Bostock-Kelley reviews ANNIE at University Area CDC, writing "Despite wishing the musical itself showed the relationship build between Annie and Daddy Warbucks, the song "Why Should I Change A Thing" was sung with beautiful emotional uncertainty by Rick. KariAnn made an excellent decision adding in the optional song to fill in the storyline. Annie and Rick had a unique father daughter chemistry. When he sang "Something Was Missing," you believed he'd been unknowingly looking for Annie as much as Annie was looking for her parents. They both found a chance to love and be loved."

          Regional Roundup: Top New Features This Week Around Our BroadwayWorld 8/10 - MOULIN ROUGE, THE PRINCE OF EGYPT and More!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

BroadwayWorld presents a comprehensive weekly roundup of regional stories around our Broadway World, which include videos, editor spotlights, regional reviews and more. This week, we feature MOULIN ROUGE, THE PRINCE OF EGYPT and More!

Check out our top features from around the BroadwayWorld below! Want more great global content? Check out our "Around The World" section!


Boston: Contributor Jan Nargi reviews MOULIN ROUGE, writing "Satine (a powerful Karen Olivo) is the glittering diamond in the rough at the Moulin Rouge. She is the star attraction promoted (and pimped out) by the club's owner and impresario Harold Zidler (a fabulously flamboyant Danny Burstein). When the club falls on hard times, Zidler coerces Satine into becoming the courtesan to the psychopathic Duke of Monroth (a sneering Tam Mutu) in exchange for a hefty infusion of cash."


Salt Lake City: Contributor Tyler Hinton reviews THE PRINCE OF EGPYT at Tuacahn, writing "Director Scott S. Anderson carefully balances this understated theatricality with thrilling visual spectacle. The natural setting of the amphitheater is gorgeous, with imposing red rock cliffs that make the audience feel they are actually in Egypt as the story unfolds. The backdrop is utilized to great success by scenic designer Brad Shelton, lighting designer Cory Pattak, and projection designer Jon Infante. Massive obelisk and sphinx set pieces look as if they were hewn from the red rock, the cliffs and trees are lit in different ways at just the right moments to augment the action, and projections of effects such as lightning and fiery hail reflect from the dark cliffs to astonishing effect."


Nashville: Contributor Jeffrey Ellis reviews SISTER ACT, writing "The focus and commitment of Wilkinson's talented cast is apparent from the very first scene, never once flagging for the two-and-a-half hours of playing time during which Deloris and her cohorts cavort about the magical floating stage at Chaffin's (yep, the stage once again descends from the flyspace above to the delight of audiences) to bring the farfetched, if immensely entertaining, story to life. Based on the 1992 film that starred Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith."

A new algorithm could allow drones to reduce collisions between birds and planes#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

A lot has been made of the dangers of drones mixing with other aircraft, but one team of engineers is exploring how they can help guard planes from threats rather than present new ones. The work centers on a new algorithm developed specifically to allow a drone to shepherd birds away from flight paths like robotic aerial sheepdogs, and the early results suggest that this could prove an effective way to cut costs and improve safety.

          Regional Roundup: Top New Features This Week Around Our BroadwayWorld 8/10 - MOULIN ROUGE, THE PRINCE OF EGYPT and More!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

BroadwayWorld presents a comprehensive weekly roundup of regional stories around our Broadway World, which include videos, editor spotlights, regional reviews and more. This week, we feature MOULIN ROUGE, THE PRINCE OF EGYPT and More!

Check out our top features from around the BroadwayWorld below! Want more great global content? Check out our "Around The World" section!


Boston: Contributor Jan Nargi reviews MOULIN ROUGE, writing "Satine (a powerful Karen Olivo) is the glittering diamond in the rough at the Moulin Rouge. She is the star attraction promoted (and pimped out) by the club's owner and impresario Harold Zidler (a fabulously flamboyant Danny Burstein). When the club falls on hard times, Zidler coerces Satine into becoming the courtesan to the psychopathic Duke of Monroth (a sneering Tam Mutu) in exchange for a hefty infusion of cash."


Salt Lake City: Contributor Tyler Hinton reviews THE PRINCE OF EGPYT at Tuacahn, writing "Director Scott S. Anderson carefully balances this understated theatricality with thrilling visual spectacle. The natural setting of the amphitheater is gorgeous, with imposing red rock cliffs that make the audience feel they are actually in Egypt as the story unfolds. The backdrop is utilized to great success by scenic designer Brad Shelton, lighting designer Cory Pattak, and projection designer Jon Infante. Massive obelisk and sphinx set pieces look as if they were hewn from the red rock, the cliffs and trees are lit in different ways at just the right moments to augment the action, and projections of effects such as lightning and fiery hail reflect from the dark cliffs to astonishing effect."


Nashville: Contributor Jeffrey Ellis reviews SISTER ACT, writing "The focus and commitment of Wilkinson's talented cast is apparent from the very first scene, never once flagging for the two-and-a-half hours of playing time during which Deloris and her cohorts cavort about the magical floating stage at Chaffin's (yep, the stage once again descends from the flyspace above to the delight of audiences) to bring the farfetched, if immensely entertaining, story to life. Based on the 1992 film that starred Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith."


UK / West End: Contributor Marianka Swain reviews BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL at Southwark Playhouse, writing "Leading a company brimming with triple-threat talent, Robyn McIntyre nicely conveys Campbell's intensity and fervent desire to create one perfect moment now - ahead of an uncertain adult future. Chisara Agor brings nuance to Danielle, whose toughness acts as a shield, and who's allowed to be dignified and also a little petty. Both have strong vocals and slick moves."


Austin: Contributor Jesse Griffith reviews THE MUSIC MAN at The Long Center, writing "This is just an all-around fine production. I watched each moment with my old man's hawk-eye and I caught not one little hitch. When directors tell actors that "If you can see the audience they can see you", they had best heed this good advice. Old 'show trash' like me can spot a hesitation or a flubbed line or really any imperfection instantly."


UK / West End: Contributor Charlie Wilks reviews CLUB SWIZZLE at Roundhouse, writing "Everything you see feels like something new. From clowning to aerial hoop, burlesque to pole dancing, there's something in this show for everyone's taste level. The action you see is underscored to perfect time by a live bad, who improvise along to what's happening in front of them. And of course there's a little bit of audience participation, which if anything like tonight is to go by, is sure to be a definite highlight."


Tampa: Contributor Deborah Bostock-Kelley reviews ANNIE at University Area CDC, writing "Despite wishing the musical itself showed the relationship build between Annie and Daddy Warbucks, the song "Why Should I Change A Thing" was sung with beautiful emotional uncertainty by Rick. KariAnn made an excellent decision adding in the optional song to fill in the storyline. Annie and Rick had a unique father daughter chemistry. When he sang "Something Was Missing," you believed he'd been unknowingly looking for Annie as much as Annie was looking for her parents. They both found a chance to love and be loved."

          WWF-Greater Mekong: Consultant for Re-Branding of Dawna Tenasserim Landscape (DTL)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Dawna Tenasserim Landscape (DTL), straddling the Myanmar-Thai border, has some of the largest remaining areas of tropical forests in Southeast Asia. Over 83% of the landscape is still forested and it harbors exceptional biodiversity, including tigers and one of the largest populations of Asian elephants. It is also home to other endangered species such as leopard, bear, gaur and banteng

 
The 178,896 km2 DTL represents one of the Earth's most biologically significant areas for biodiversity conservation and is one of WWF's top five priority landscapes globally. 
 
The  ecosystems of the DTL provide multiple services that support both natural and human communities. These include water, forest products that support subsistence and livelihoods of local communities, nutrient cycling, crop pollination, and carbon sequestration. The forests are also central to the identity and spiritual values of indigenous communities living there.

The Challenge

This landscape is facing immediate and increasing threats. The direct challenges include infrastructure projects that would see the landscape fragmented in several key locations.
 
  • The 'Dawei Road' will cut across the Southern Corridor connecting Bangkok to the deep-water port in Dawei via Kanchanburi.
  • East West Economic Corridor - a road located to the north of the Western Forest Complex (WEFCOM). will traverse mainland Southeast Asia including linking Phitsanulok in Thailand with Mawlamyine in Myanmar.
  • On the Myanmar side, there is also a road cutting off connectivity north of proposed Lenya National Park to the proposed Tanintharyi national park.
 
More roads will come and each road divides the forest into smaller blocks, disrupts the movement of wildlife, gives access to poachers and illegal loggers, increases deforestation and brings more roads.
 
WWF is working to mitigate the negative impacts of these infrastructure projects but we need more people to care.
 
Most people in Myanmar and Thailand aren't even aware of this landscape, how spectacular and intact it is, and that it is home to tigers, elephants  and other charismatic species. It's often assumed that there aren't any true wilderness areas left in this region and what their value is. We need to change that mindset. 
 
What we need:
 
  1. Name for the initiative and tagline
    1. We need a name and tagline that embody the spirit of this beautiful and vast landscape while stressing the urgency of the need to protect it. This does not necessarily need to be a new name for the Landscape but a name for an initiative built around the Landscape. The DTL name alone does not resonate with many audiences, so we want something that resonates with donors, stakeholders, and the general public that is easy to remember and conveys a sense of "place" (geographic location), urgency and importance. Similar WWF initiatives include "The Coral Triangle" and "The Heart of Borneo," which have become well-known names that are attached to location-specific conservation initiatives.
  2. Visual identity
    1. The conservation initiative needs a visual identity that will resonate with a broad audience and make the landscape memorable. We need a distinct visual theme -- a "look and feel" that can be applied across the webpage and print and promotional materials while maintaining the WWF branding and familiarity.
  3. Initial ideas on how to market the initiative / DTL -- activities, venues, exhibition
    1. Broad ideas on ways to introduce the public to the DTL and the wider initiative. Any ideas are welcome at this point and can then be whittled down into what is realistic. But at this point, be bold and creative. We have one activity that we are currently looking at:
      1. Exhibition: We have a commissioned aerial photography and video series that we want to turn into an exhibition that can be used to "launch" the DTL and fundraise for our work.
  4. A package of creative products (following agreement on the general visual identity) including:
    1. Key visuals
    2. Website
    3. Introductory brochure
    4. Social media package
    5. TBC
 
  1. Objective of the consultancy
 
To create a cutting edge visual identity and 'brand' for the DTL with a view to increasing public awareness and political support for its conservation.  
 
  1. Outputs/deliverable of performance and time schedule
 
  1.  Campaign Articulation
    • Mission
    • Vision
    • Campaign Name
    •  Slogan/ tagline
    • Powerpoint overview of the Initiative
 
  1. Campaign Style Guide
    • Visual identity: brand marks, campaign colors
    • Campaign typography: headline, sub-head & body copy typeface selections
    • Delivered as .PDF document
 
  1. Initial Campaign Strategy and Plan
    • Campaign Activity Ideation
    • Initial strategy and plan outline
    • Delivered as .PDF document

 All products to be delivered by October 20, 2018.

Closing date: 21 August 2018 (Tuesday)

Interested applicants may submit their proposal stating the expected consultancy fee together with CVs of consultants to lee.poston@wwfgreatermekong.org.

I watched each moment with my old man's hawk-eye and I caught not one little hitch. When directors tell actors that "If you can see the audience they can see you", they had best heed this good advice. Old 'show trash' like me can spot a hesitation or a flubbed line or really any imperfection instantly."


UK / West End: Contributor Charlie Wilks reviews CLUB SWIZZLE at Roundhouse, writing "Everything you see feels like something new. From clowning to aerial hoop, burlesque to pole dancing, there's something in this show for everyone's taste level. The action you see is underscored to perfect time by a live bad, who improvise along to what's happening in front of them. And of course there's a little bit of audience participation, which if anything like tonight is to go by, is sure to be a definite highlight."


Tampa: Contributor Deborah Bostock-Kelley reviews ANNIE at University Area CDC, writing "Despite wishing the musical itself showed the relationship build between Annie and Daddy Warbucks, the song "Why Should I Change A Thing" was sung with beautiful emotional uncertainty by Rick. KariAnn made an excellent decision adding in the optional song to fill in the storyline. Annie and Rick had a unique father daughter chemistry. When he sang "Something Was Missing," you believed he'd been unknowingly looking for Annie as much as Annie was looking for her parents. They both found a chance to love and be loved."

Boston: Contributor Jan Nargi reviews MOULIN ROUGE, writing "Satine (a powerful Karen Olivo) is the glittering diamond in the rough at the Moulin Rouge. She is the star attraction promoted (and pimped out) by the club's owner and impresario Harold Zidler (a fabulously flamboyant Danny Burstein). When the club falls on hard times, Zidler coerces Satine into becoming the courtesan to the psychopathic Duke of Monroth (a sneering Tam Mutu) in exchange for a hefty infusion of cash."


Salt Lake City: Contributor Tyler Hinton reviews THE PRINCE OF EGPYT at Tuacahn, writing "Director Scott S. Anderson carefully balances this understated theatricality with thrilling visual spectacle. The natural setting of the amphitheater is gorgeous, with imposing red rock cliffs that make the audience feel they are actually in Egypt as the story unfolds. The backdrop is utilized to great success by scenic designer Brad Shelton, lighting designer Cory Pattak, and projection designer Jon Infante. Massive obelisk and sphinx set pieces look as if they were hewn from the red rock, the cliffs and trees are lit in different ways at just the right moments to augment the action, and projections of effects such as lightning and fiery hail reflect from the dark cliffs to astonishing effect."


Nashville: Contributor Jeffrey Ellis reviews SISTER ACT, writing "The focus and commitment of Wilkinson's talented cast is apparent from the very first scene, never once flagging for the two-and-a-half hours of playing time during which Deloris and her cohorts cavort about the magical floating stage at Chaffin's (yep, the stage once again descends from the flyspace above to the delight of audiences) to bring the farfetched, if immensely entertaining, story to life. Based on the 1992 film that starred Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith."


UK / West End: Contributor Marianka Swain reviews BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL at Southwark Playhouse, writing "Leading a company brimming with triple-threat talent, Robyn McIntyre nicely conveys Campbell's intensity and fervent desire to create one perfect moment now - ahead of an uncertain adult future. Chisara Agor brings nuance to Danielle, whose toughness acts as a shield, and who's allowed to be dignified and also a little petty. Both have strong vocals and slick moves."

          The Pepperhill household waste and recycling centre in Station Road, Southfleet, will now open tomorrow      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A waste recycling centre is set to open this weekend earlier than expected after it was closed for four months after a fire.

The Pepper Hill tip in Southfleet was due to open on Monday but will now open tomorrow morning after work finished sooner than expected.

While it was closed an estimated 6,000 visitors had to find somewhere else to dispose of their rubbish during its four-month closure.

The tip was closed by Kent County Council (KCC) following a major blaze on Saturday, April 21 in the household waste bay in the waste transfer station at the site in Station Road.

The cause of the fire is still not known due to the quantity of waste taken into the site.

Testing on the building following the fire found dangerously high chloride levels produced from the various types of waste which burnt.

A full two-month decontamination process by specialists was necessary which was followed by several weeks of work to renew lighting, doors, concrete walls, electrics, the sprinkler system, CCTV and cladding.

The Environment Agency has now provided approvals to FCC Environment, the contractor which runs Pepperhill, so the site can reopen.

The news will be welcomed by householders in Medway too, as the Cuxton household waste and recycling centre had been busier since the closure of Pepperhill.

Bosses at KCC also announced earlier today the site will have extended opening hours on Wednesdays until 6.30pm and Thursdays until 6pm in line with the other sites hours.

This arrangement will continue until the end of September.

Kay Groves, KCC waste services manager, said: “I appreciate the closure has been extremely inconvenient for people.

"It was necessary for our contractor to complete significant amounts of cleaning."

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

The so-called Holy Fire has burned nearly 10,000 acres in southern California and is only 5% contained as of this morning. The fire is burning about an hour east of the ocean near the town of Lake Elsinore. Here’s a map showing the area. This is looking east toward the ocean:

Some dramatic images from the OC Register:

Portions of Lake Elsinore are now under a mandatory evacuation:

Here’s an aerial view of the fire from one of several planes dropping fire retardant.

You can see how close the flames are coming to homes in these clips:

Airplanes were dropping red fire retardant trying to prevent the 50-foot tall flames from coming over the ridge:

In some cases the houses sit below the burning hills:
