5D Data Storage Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2017 - 2025

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/09/2019 -- Five dimensional (5D) data storage is the technology invented by a team of scientists at the University of Southampton, England with a view to store data in a disc made up of Nano structured glass. This data storage disc is expected to store data up to 13.8 Billion years which is an estimated age of the Universe. This Nano structured glass is etched microscopically with a laser. The 5D disc can be best explained as a result of XYZ dimensions along with time referred to 4th dimension. The 5th dimension inside of the discs are the size and orientation in relation to the 3-dimensional position of the nanostructures. The tiny patterns printed on the 3 layers allow an optical illusion to the viewer giving different view of the patterns when viewed from different angles. Each disc layer of the 5D data storage has multiple layers of macro and micro images.

The thought behind creating a data storage disc using 5D technology is owing to the present options of data storage devices getting damaged, rotten, or obsolete. Also, harsh or extreme weather conditions such as excessive dampness, heat, humidity, etc. can also damage the storage devices. Such factors lead to the thought of a rugged compact data storage product and hence, 5D data storage disc is considered as an option. The Nano structured glass is long lasting with chemical, heat and other reaction resistant. These Nano-structures tend to adapt to the light's polarization so that positive and negative values can be read effectively. The Nano structured discs are hit with ultra-laser rays to form structured dots with short, strong light pulses. The scientist team has named this disc as 'superman memory crystal'. The scientist team from the University of Southampton is looking for industry partners to commercialize the disc for storing rich information to pass it on to the next generation. Some of the famous documents printed into 5D data storage are the holy Bible, Magna Carta, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and Sir Isaac Newton's Opticks.

The expected driver for the 5D data storage market is the need for a secure and portable form of data storage product. Within the military and other related industry verticals secured data communication or transfer becomes a problem. Hence, this factor of secured data storage product can drive the future years across diverse industry verticals. Furthermore, big data is expected to allow commercializing of 5D data storage discs to diverse applications as data is increasing exponentially with time. On the other hand, one of the main challenge for the 5D data storage market is that the commercialization of the disc is not expected to reach the market soon as the University is not yet ready to disclose the key for the 5D data storage disc for reading the rich information to the industries. Another challenge will be the high cost of the glass making it less accessible to wider applications. One of the anticipated opportunities are no mere substitution for ultrafast lasers which will make the product grow across the high technology adopted regions. Another opportunity for the 5D data storage is that civilization around are looking forward to record their culture and developments to pass it on to their next generations. Additionally, secret military agencies emerging on a huge scale across territories is also expected to be an opportunity for the 5D data storage market.

To conclude, the 5D data storage disc featuring 360TB data capacity, withstanding up to 1000°C temperature, able to have a life of 13.8 billion years at 190°C is expected to rule the big data market in near future once leading industry players invest in R&D to come up with more products in the 5D data storage market.

The scene: the Winco 122nd And Halsey store. Me and The Wife™ leave the Mighty Multnomah County Library midland branch after enjoying a recharging day amongst the books complete with Dutch Bros Coffee because that's the way you Library Day, and we decide we want to get a few absolute necessities before Snowzilla comes to town.

The commute is pretty much normal for 1800 on a Friday night. I had heard, via staccato signals of constant information, that the stores in the Seattle area were getting astoundingly mobbed. Saw the pictures. Astounding. And, I figured the impending trip to the grocery was going to be a bit of an endurance trip but not ...

Well, I get ahead of myself. But I figured it would be a task needing fortitude but not like the penultimate scenes to When Worlds Collide or Deep Impact, or maybe half that bad. At most.

But how do you prepare yourself for something you've never seen and couldn't therefore envision? That you can't intellectually encompass because you have nothing to compare it to?

The store was thronged, to be sure, but it was channelled chaos; bumpy but negotiable. Wife finds us a handy parking spot; with her awareness of human nature, while every last parking spot in the lot in front of the store was taken, the spots on the side near the Shari's were NOT all full. People think of the area in front and everyone (including me) gets that tunnel-vision; they don't think about the small lot on the side.

Getting a cart was another challenge. There was not a free cart to be had. We had our library and Powell's City of Books bags and we went to work.

The first real clue that we were not operating under normal rules came in produce, when we found that there was not one bunch of bananas left in the place. At Whole Foods, they came for the kale, first. Here in more proletarian Outer East Portlandia, first they came for the 'nanas.

Walking off to bulk foods, we sang bars from "Yes, We Have No Bananas". because that's the way we roll.

The rest of the trip was uneventful if not for the immense crowd. The 122nd WinCo is laid out like most WinCos; the dairy is at the back.

As was the end of the line to the checkout. Down the dairy case on one side of that aisle; another proceeding the other way in front of the frozen foods case on the opposite side of that aisle. For a short time I worried it was all *one* line and I was going to be coming back that other way, but the WinCo logistics were immaculate; That line went to one end of the register line, our line to the other.

WinCo planning for this was straight-up rockstar, in other words.

Numerous incidences of simple human friendliness. This is when Oregon Nice comes out, in the transition between normal operations and crisis; oh, sure, if the apocalypse extends any more than a few days we'll be eating each other alive, but for the first few days, at least, we'll be cool with each other.

My wife comes back with a cart after I, having secured a place in the line with a few groceries already, had moved out of the dairy aisle alongside the bottled water area, which was by now as dry as the Atacama. The only cat litter available was in a 40-pound bucket, at which point an estimable gentleman donated his cart to her after concluding that he could carry what he had out to his car in his arms.

And I'll never have the opportunity to thank him, alas. Well, we paid that forward in our turn anyway. So that goes.

We waited in the line for check out, chatted philosophical (I can't speak for my spouse but I'm definitely in that phase of life) and exchanged conviviality with the others in the line ... and we checked out of Checkstand 1.

That's how you know this was a capital-E EVENT. Because, my friends, Checkstand 1 at your average WinCo is the one farthest away from the entrance. It's in the booneys, as the WinCo layout has it.

In that way, it's a shame that me and my spouse never had kids. We'd have grandkids who were infants by now, and in a few years, we'd be able to tell them the tale.

About how the weather was so bad, back in Feb of '19, that we checked out of WinCo at Checkstand 1.

And so it goes.

WINERY

Chapelle de Potensac was created and fi rst sold by Jean-Hubert Delon with the 2002 vintage. This elegant, traditionally made second wine possesses beautiful balance founded on smoothness and freshness. Its terroir of fine gravel and clay sands can be found in various parts of Potensac's historical terroir, on the edge of the village. The Chapel, reproduced on the bottle's packaging, stands in the centre of the hamlet. It is characterized by the absence of its neo-Gothic tower.

 

HARVEST PERIOD: From 25th September to 10th October 2015

 

LAB ANALYZES

abv : 13,35 %vol.

pH : 3,47 - IPT : 59

Total Acidity : 3.83 gH2SO4/l 

 

VINTAGE 2015
Very favourable weather conditions in April and June allowed a very even bud-burst and flowering in 2015. The hot and dry summer then ensured a complete degradation of any vegetal aromas as well as a welcome hydric stress, beneficial for the thickening of the grape skins and a rapid maturation of the pips. The colour change was also beautifully even thanks to the regular rain showers. The careful thinning out and vine care during the growth cycle meant the bunches remained perfectly healthy right through to the end of harvest-time.

 

TASTING AD HOC

The wine is clear with medium ruby colour, bright with legs.

Some close aromas at the beginning, but in 30´it is opened. Clean medium aromas, some dark berries as dark cherry, plum, and brumble. Some malolactic notes as cream and yogourt. At the end, clove, black pepper, tabac, some wetty terroir.

Dry wine on the palate, smooth medium+tannins, medium+ alcohol and medium+ acidity. Full body.

Silky texture and medium+ intensity with dark berries, mahogany, tobbaco and leather.

Medium finish.

Matching with broken eggs and ready peppery french fries.

          Re: What does financial peace look like to YOU?      Cache   Translate Page      
I haven't ever read a DR book or listened to the show, but financial peace to me means having the knowledge to weather the inevitable curve balls life throws at you, and taking steps to minimize the impact of those curve balls.



So, for me/us, that knowledge has lead to the following actions:

-paying off student loans

-paying off car loans

-saving 20% into retirement accounts

-saving an extra 3% into savings accounts to continue bulking up the e-fund

-making tax-efficient decisions when possible

-buying an undervalued house at under 2x gross income in a highly desirable area and putting some work into it (top school district in my state means houses hold their value and )

-working for a company which is profitable and nearly as stable as the government (although this has probably cost some earning potential, there are some top notch benefits including a 457b (huge benefit for early retirement if desired), remarkable healthcare and plenty of PTO)

-thoughtfully choosing a career path that is not likely to be automated or outsourced and specializing to become unique and hard to replace w/in my org



So, all of those things combined mean that while our NW is not particularly large yet (both are only 30) i feel at peace. I paid off our car loan a few days ago and that was the last piece of the puzzle. Still have a mortgage, but very manageable and in no rush to pay off.

He had not eaten for days, hunger struck him this morning.  I have cooked and fed him all day.
I am glad he ate, but I am exhausted.  Partly from stress, and partly from spending the day in the kitchen.

Yesterday we had record temps, almost 80 degrees.  Today it was maybe in the low forties.
Talk of snow/sleet/ice tonight, my head is spinning from the weather change.

Hot tea is waiting for me, so is the bed.  May we all have a good night's sleep and a joyful day tomorrow.

So it snowed in Seattle. Like, a lot. And wouldn't you know it, the city's canine residents can't get enough. 

An unusually powerful winter storm dropped over six inches on the Pacific Northwest city Feb. 9 — a "new daily record" according to the National Weather Service, which also happens to report that more snow is on the way. That hasn't stopped Seattle's dogs from making the most of the surprise snow day.

It's good to compare debt levels by looking at the industry norms but remember debt (capital) is what they are selling and so you not only look at the cost of their capital but also their exposure/risk of their loans and then balance that out on how much they are leveraged. It's very hard for me to get my head around that especially w/ larger banks and financial institutions and understanding the accounting.

I tend to just pass on companies in this sector. Also, look to see if any of the value activist investors see value. Remember Buffet's best FCF generator is Geico. It is somewhat similar in the way they structure/limit future liabilities hedging risk.

You need to dig down deeper and see what type of lending is done, how risky are those loans (do they do car loans bottom tier, high risk credit card lending) and see if the overall portfolio of loans meet your risk level. How over are their loans turned over. Business would be subject to economic cycles too so can they weather a down cycle and how might that impact earnings?

Too complicated for me especially if I plan to hold 18-24 months (that is Graham typical holding period). Remember the GN number is just a first pass/filter I use and in every value Buy there are special circumstances/opportunities that make the investment attractive.

Good luck

          Prince Philip Surrenders Driving Licence Following Car Crash Disaster      Cache   Translate Page      

The Duke of Edinburgh has voluntarily surrendered his driving licence, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Prince Philip, 97, escaped injury on January 17 when the Land Rover Freelander he was driving collided with another vehicle when he pulled out of a driveway on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk on to a busy A road.

The duke’s car flipped over in the crash, which occurred when he was apparently dazzled by the low sun, and he was initially trapped and had to be rescued by a passing motorist.

The other vehicle involved, a Kia, was carrying a nine-month-old baby boy, his mother who was driving, and Emma Fairweather as a passenger.

The baby was unhurt, but both women had to be treated in hospital.

A statement released by Norfolk Police today said: “Norfolk Police can confirm that the 97 year old driver of the Land Rover involved in the collision at Sandringham on Thursday 17 January 2019 has today (Saturday 9 February 2019) voluntarily surrendered his licence to officers.

“We will follow the standard procedure and return the licence to the DVLA.

“The investigation file for the collision has been passed to the Crown Prosecution Service for their consideration.”

A CPS spokesperson said: “We review each file carefully before a decision is made and will take this development into account.”

In the days following the car crash, Fairweather, who broke her wrist, called for the Duke to be prosecuted if found to be at fault.

In a letter dated January 21, Philip wished Fairweather a “speedy recovery” and said he “failed to see the car coming”, the Sunday Mirror reported.

He blamed the low, bright sun for obscuring his vision, adding he was “very contrite about the consequences”.

Prince Philip's 'car crash parts' have been put up for auction on eBay.

The driver told the Sunday Mirror she was “chuffed” with the letter, adding: “I thought it was really nice that he signed off as ‘Philip’ and not the formal title. I was pleasantly surprised because of the personalised nature.

“A lot of people said it was unrealistic that I wanted that human kindness from Prince Philip – which is what I saw this letter as.”

Fairweather had previously complained that while the Queen, who had no involvement in the accident, had been in contact through a lady-in-waiting, she had not had any direct communication with the Duke.

It is understood a similar letter was sent to the driver of the Kia.

The Duke was photographed driving without a seatbelt 48 hours after the crash.

Norfolk Police are reported to have given him “suitable words of advice” after  images were published showing him back behind the wheel of a replacement Freelander on the Queen’s Sandringham estate.

At the time of the collision, celebrity lawyer Nick Freeman said the duke could face a prosecution for driving without due care and attention, which carries an unlimited fine.

But the lawyer, dubbed Mr Loophole, said he could avoid prosecution by surrendering his licence.

          It is in the bag      Cache   Translate Page      
Happy Saturday, Amigos. I'm practicing my six word Spanish vocabulary in advance of another trip to the land of tacos and sombreros. Dos cervases por favor. Gracias. I think I have it covered. This will be my third trip to Mexico since the start of December. Unfortunately, it is work, not vacation. On the bright side it will be near 80 degrees as opposed to 18. There is that. Warm sunny weather always helps brighten my attitude.

I had to get a new suitcase. The airline broke one "spinner" wheel when I went to China a couple of years ago. A second wheel was damaged coming home from Mexico in the days before Christmas. The trip last week demonstrated the bag just won't roll well with two broken wheels.

If I have learned anything in more than 25 years of travel it is that decent luggage is worth it. The last suitcase was not the cheap WalMart stuff, but it was the low-end model from a reputable company. The bracket that holds the wheels is plastic; thus the breakage. The new bag has the "skateboard" spinner wheels mounted in a metal bracket, a far more robust design.

I cannot really complain much about the last bag. It took me to China twice, Mexico twice, two cruises, a trip to Hawaii, and a couple of times to Florida on vacation in addition to countless miles throughout the country on ordinary business trips. In and out of trunks, backseats, overhead bins and bellies of airliners is rough. Trust me, those pavers in hotel entryways and the transition from floor to carpet and up and down curbs is hard on the little bearings in the wheels. It is amazing the suitcase lasted as long as it did.

Geez, just thinking about where that suitcase has been makes me reflect that I have travelled a lot more than your average bear. I cannot remember exactly when the wife bought it for me, but that bag has been to at least six countries and maybe 16 or 18 different states. I guess I shouldn't be surprised it is starting to fall apart.

The wife is not thrilled I will be travelling on the upcoming Hallmark Holiday. I better go get something nice this morning to have ready when I get back. I don't think a chocolate sampler is going to cut the mustard this year, especially since my Christmas gifts were a little lame*. Heck, I might even get a card.

Ah Joe, you romantic devil.



* see above, I travelled basically the whole of December for work. My shopping time was limited to pretty much the weekend before Christmas.

I use a wool sock with a cut out toe on my cylinder hummingbird feeder and a wool cap on my disc hummingbird feeder. I cover the bottom portion of the feeding disc with the hat The nectar has not frozen on mine using this method.

To aid in keeping feeders thawed and the birds warm, we have created something that keeps hummingbird feeders warm enough to feed from throughout the winter months and gives our hummingbirds a place to get warm while they drink. As anyone who has enjoyed a hot meal after playing in the snow knows, restorative heat gives you the strength to go on. This is even truer for the tiny hummingbird. Any warmth and energy we can give them increases their chances of survival in the winter months. Please visit us at http://hummingbirdheiniewarmer.com

Thanks everyone these are all great ideas. I have been making 3 parts water to 1 part sugar, glad you told me 4 to 1. And I didn't know about hummingbird houses, and the hand warmer idea is great. So many hummingbirds stick around. I love the birds and was glad I got out and refilled the feeders yesterday before the big snow. I use the no mess seed and use a product that help keeps it dry - just a little - they must have dry food, no moldy wet food as you all know. Carolynne Harris

I tape chemical hand warmers to the bottom of the feeders. These will prevent freezing in all but the coldest weather.

          Seattle's Unusually Frigid Temperatures And Heavy Snowfall Stretch Into Next Week      Cache   Translate Page      
A powerful winter storm in the Pacific Northwest is taking the region by surprise, with bitter temperatures and extensive snowfall prompting a state of emergency in Washington State. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared the emergency on Friday, saying residents should limit time outside and stay off the roads. "Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years," Inslee said in a statement . More than 200 flights at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport were cancelled on Friday, and more than 300 were delayed according to the flight tracking website, FlightAware . As of Saturday morning, more than 7 inches of snow had fallen at Sea-Tac airport. It's an occurrence Meteorologist Marc Chenard of the Weather Prediction Center deemed significant. "It does happen in Seattle, typically more in December and January," Chenard said. "Even with that, it's an event that happens once a year, once every couple of years."

DB had a problem sleeping last night, so we were reading till well after 1am.

So late waking up, it was 9am before my feet touched the floor.

Raining again, it did clear at lunchtime, but its still very windy. Have not even been over the doorstep, DB tells me its fairly mild, but the wind makes it feel cold. Looking forward to some better weather so we can get out for a walk each day.

Not much done this morning except the veg for tonight supper. On Thursday I cooked beef and bean stew in the PKP, its been in the fridge, so we are going to have it tonight.

Yesterday afternoon I went over to see my friend. She told me she had fallen in the sitting room on Monday and had to ring for help to get up. She is still very shaken and says her legs are weak, so she is using her walker. I had her a cup of tea before I came out, she did not want anything to eat. Her son and his wife have been over today to see her. I will be ringing to see how she is.

I spent several hours this morning clearing the pictures on my lap top. I have transferred them to a portable hard drive all 4,500 of them. Have just kept a few files with photos of the GGC on the lap top.

Scotland are playing Rugby this afternoon, DB said he was not bothered watching it, so we have sat reading.

The pillow cushions have arrived, so not I have no excuse not to start the book pillows. I did spend 10 minutes tidying the sewing room, so hopefully I will get started next week. I have kept the bag the pillows came in, I may need to use it for Denny's cushion if I have to post it.

Just have to re heat the stew and cook the veg for supper. There is enough bread and butter pudding left for dessert.

Newton First Day Cover *BFDC.co.uk



It is impossible to be a mathematician without being a poet in soul.
~Sofya Kovalevskaya

The 41st day of the year; Euler (1772) observed that the polynomial f(x)= x2 + x + 41 will produce a prime for any integer value of x in the interval 0 to 39. In 1778 Legendre realized that x2 - x + 41 will give the same primes for interval (1-40).
 n^2 + n + 41 is prime for n = 0 ... 39 and Is prime for nearly half the values of n up to 10,000,000. *John D. Cook

If you multiply 41 by any three digit number to produce a five digit number, every cyclic representation of that number formed by moving the last digit to the front is also divisible by 41. (for example 41*378 = 15,498. 41 will also divide 81,549; 98154; 49815; and 54,981 *The Moscow Puzzles
41 can be expressed as the sum of consecutive primes in two ways, (2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13), and the  (11 + 13 + 17).

41 is the smallest integer whose reciprocal has a 5-digit repeating decimal.  \(\frac{1}{41} = \overline{.02439}\)

And even more from @Math Year-Round 41=1!+2!+3!+1¹+2²+3³

*JAIPREET VIRDI, From the Hands of Quacks

1880 On 10 February 1880, an article ran in the Daily Times (of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) describing a remarkable invention recently demonstrated by a local inventor, Dr. H.E. Licks. The invention allowed images to be transmitted by telegraph. In other words, it resembled what people today would recognize as a television. However, Licks called his invention a "diaphote," from the Greek dia meaning "through" and photos meaning "light".
Despite the excitement it generated, the diaphote turned out to be a hoax. However, it wasn't until 1917 that "Dr. H.E. Licks" revealed the hoax in a book, Recreations in Mathematics. Licks himself is believed to have been the pseudonym of Mansfield Merriman (1848-1925), a professor of engineering at Lehigh University. *Museum of Hoaxes

This (2012) is the centennial year of the Girl Scouts. The organization has declared 2012 the "Year of the Girl", and the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery opened a year-long exhibit "Juliette Gordon Low and 100 Years of Girl Scouts" on January 13, 2012.*Wik

In 1958, radar signals were bounced off the planet Venus by MIT engineers at Lincoln Laboratories in experiments conducted during an inferior conjuction with Venus. A maser installed at the Millstone Hill radar site, Westford, Mass., was used. The return echoes were distinguished from the background noise using digital signal processing. The results were confirmation by other researchers, and together led to a more precise determination of the value of the astronomical unit (AU), the Earth's mean distance to the sun. A new value of the AU, 149,600,000 km was adopted at a general meeting of the International Astronomical Union in Hamburg (1964). Radar was also bounced off the Sun (7 Apr 1959). Lincoln Laboratories had been set up to conduct military rather than astronomical research.*TIS

1747 Aida Yasuaki (February 10, 1747 – October 26, 1817) Japanese mathematician who published about 2000 works. Aida compiled Sampo tensi shinan which appeared in 1788. It is a book of geometry problems, developing formulae for ellipses, spheres, circles etc. Aida explained the use of algebraic expressions and the construction of equations. He also worked on number theory and simplified continued fraction methods due to Seki. *SAU

1785 Claude Louis Marie Henri Navier (10 Feb 1785 in Dijon, France - 21 Aug 1836 in Paris, France) Claude-Louis Navier was a French mathematician best known for the Navier-Stokes equations describing the behaviour of a incompressible fluid. We should note, however, that Navier derived the Navier-Stokes equations despite not fully understanding the physics of the situation which he was modelling. He did not understand about shear stress in a fluid, but rather he based his work on modifying Euler's equations to take into account forces between the molecules in the fluid. Although his reasoning is unacceptable today. *SAU

1885 Hardy Cross (10 Feb 1885; died 11 Feb 1959 at age 73) U.S. professor of civil and structural engineering whose outstanding contribution was a method of calculating tendencies to produce motion (moments) in the members of a continuous framework, such as the skeleton of a building. By the use of Cross's technique, known as the moment distribution method, or simply the Hardy Cross method, calculation can be carried to any required degree of accuracy by successive approximations, thus avoiding the immense labour of solving simultaneous equations that contain as many variables as there are rigid joints in a frame.

1888 Selig Brodetsky (10 February 1888 - 20 May 1954)was educated at Cambridge and Leipzig. He became a lecturer at Bristol and later lecturer and professor at Leeds. He worked on fluid flow with particular emphasis on aerodynamics. He was President of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem for a short time. *SAU

1901 Richard Dagobert Brauer (10 Feb 1901; 17 Apr 1977 at age 76) German-American mathematician and educator, a pioneer in the development of algebra theory. He worked with Weyl on several projects including a famous joint paper on spinors (published in 1935 in the American Journal of Mathematics). This work provided a background for Paul Dirac's theory of the spinning electron within the framework of quantum mechanics. With Nesbitt, Brauer introduced the theory of blocks (1937). Brauer used this to obtain results on finite groups, particularly finite simple groups, and the theory of blocks would play a big part in much of Brauer's later work. Starting with his group-theoretical characterisation of the simple groups (1951), he spent the rest of his life formulating a method to classify all finite simple groups. *TIS

1907 Agnes Mary Clerke (10 Feb 1842, 20 Jan 1907) Irish astronomical writer who was a diligent compiler of facts rather than a practicing scientist. Nevertheless, by 1885, her exhaustive treatise, A Popular History of Astronomy in the Nineteenth Century gained international recognition as an authoritative work. In 1903, with Lady Huggins, she was elected an honorary member of the Royal Astronomical Society, a rank previously held only by two other women, Caroline Herschel and Mary Somerville. Her publications included several books and 55 pieces in the Edinburgh Review. She contributed some astronomer biographies to the Dictionary of National Biography and some astronomical entries in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. *TIS More detail about her here


DEATHS
1576 Wilhelm Xylander (born Wilhelm Holtzman, graecized to Xylander) (December 26, 1532 – February 10, 1576) was a German classical scholar and humanist.
Xylander was the author of a number of important works. He translated the first six books of Euclid into German with notes, the Arithmetica of Diophantus, and the De quattuor mathematicis scientiis of Michael Psellus into Latin. *Wik

1865 Heinrich Friedrich Emil Lenz (24 Feb 1804, 10 Feb 1865 at age 61) was the Russian physicist who framed Lenz's Law to describe the direction of flow of electric current generated by a wire moving through a magnetic field. Lenz worked on electrical conduction and electromagnetism. In 1833 he reported investigations into the way electrical resistance changes with temperature, showing that an increase in temperature increases the resistance (for a metal). He is best-known for Lenz's law, which he discovered in 1834 while investigating magnetic induction. It states that the current induced by a change flows so as to oppose the effect producing the change. Lenz's law is a consequence of the, more general, law of conservation of energy. *TIS

1868 Sir David Brewster (11 Dec 1781; 10 Feb 1868) Scottish physicist noted for his experimental work in optics and polarized light (light in which all waves lie in the same plane.) He is known for Brewster's Law, which relates the refractive index of a material to its polarizing angle (which is the incident angle at which reflected light becomes completely polarized. He patented the kaleidoscope in 1817. Later, he used lenses to improve three-dimensional images viewed with a stereoscope. Brewster also recommended the use of the lightweight, flat Fresnel lens in lighthouses.*TIS A nice blog about Brewster is here.

1891 Sonya Kovalevsky (Sofya Vasilyevna Kovalevskaya) (15 Jan 1850; 10 Feb 1891) professor of mathematics at Stockholm. In her youth, her bedroom was wallpapered with the pages of a text from her father’s schooldays, namely, Ostrogradsky’s lithographed lecture notes on the calculus. Study of the novel wallpaper introduced her to the calculus at age 11. She became the greatest woman mathematician prior to the twentieth century. *VFR a Russian mathematician and novelist who made valuable contributions to the theory of differential equations.*TIS She died of influenza in 1891 at age forty-one, after returning from a pleasure trip to Genoa. She is buried in Solna(Stockholm suburb), Sweden, at Norra begravningsplatsen (Northern Cemetery). Alfred Nobel is buried in the same cemetery.

1923 Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (27 Mar 1845 - 10 Feb 1923 at age 77) was a German physicist who discovered the highly penetrating form of radiation that became known as X-rays on 8 Nov 1895. He received the first Nobel Prize for Physics (1901), “in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by the discovery of the remarkable rays subsequently named after him.” This high-energy radiation, though first called Röngen rays, became known as X-rays. His discovery initiated revolutionary improvements in making medical diagnoses and enabled many new advances in modern physics. *TIS "In 1901 he became the first physicist to receive a Nobel prize." *VFR


1927 Alfred George Greenhill (29 Nov 1847 in London, England - 10 Feb 1927 in London, England) graduated from Cambridge and became Professor of Mathematics at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich. His main work was on Elliptic Functions but he published widely on applications of mathematics to practical problems. He became an honorary member of the EMS in 1908. *SAU

1936 Eleanor Mildred (Balfour) Sidgwick, (11 March 1845 – 10 February 1936) was an activist for the higher education of women, Principal of Newnham College of the University of Cambridge and a leading figure in the Society for Psychical Research.
She was born in East Lothian, daughter of James Maitland Balfour and Lady Blanche Harriet. She was born into perhaps the most prominent political clan in nineteenth-century Britain, the 'Hotel Cecil': her brother Arthur would eventually himself become prime minister. Another brother, Frank, a biologist, died young in a climbing accident.
One of the first students at Newnham College in Cambridge, in 1876 she married (and became converted to feminism by) the philosopher Henry Sidgwick. In 1880 she became Vice-Principal of Newnham under the founding Principal Anne Clough, succeeding as Principal on Miss Clough's death in 1892. She and her husband resided there until 1900, the year of Henry Sidgwick's death. In 1894 Mrs Sidgwick was one of the first three women to serve on a royal commission, the Bryce commission on Secondary Education.
As a young woman, Eleanor had helped (John William Strutt, who was married to her sister, Evelyn) Lord Rayleigh improve the accuracy of experimental measurement of electrical resistance. She conducted several experiments in electricity and with him published three papers in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.
She subsequently turned her careful experimental mind to the question of testing the veracity of claims for psychical phenomena. She was elected President of the Society for Psychical Research in 1908 and named 'president of honour' in 1932. Her Husband, Henry, her brother and future Prime Minister, Arthur, and Lord Rayleigh all were also Presidents of the Society.)
She was a member of the Ladies Dining Society in Cambridge, with 11 other members.
In 1916 Mrs Sidgwick left Cambridge to live with one of her brothers near Woking; she remained there until her death in 1936.
She was awarded honorary degrees by the universities of Manchester, Edinburgh, St Andrews and Birmingham.Most of her writings related to Psychical Research, and are contained in the Proceedings of the Society for Psychical Research. However, some related to educational matters, and a couple of essays dealt with the morality of international affairs. *Wik & encyclopedia.com

1951 George Abram Miller (31 July 1863 – 10 February 1951) was an early group theorist whose many papers and texts were considered important by his contemporaries, but are now mostly considered only of historical importance.
Miller was born in Lynnville, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, and died in Urbana, Illinois.*Wik

1994 Fritz John (14 June 1910 – 10 February 1994) was a German-born mathematician specialising in partial differential equations and ill-posed problems. His early work was on the Radon transform and he is remembered for John's equation.*Wik

1997 Jerome Namias (19 Mar 1910, 10 Feb 1997 at age 86) American meteorological researcher most noted for having pioneered the development of extended weather forecasts and who also studied the Dust Bowl of the 1930s and the El Niño phenomenon. *TIS In 1971 he joined the Scripps Institution and established the first Experimental Climate Research Center. His prognosis of warm weather during the Arab oil embargo of 1973 greatly aided domestic policy response.*Wik

Seven take-aways from the Green New Deal launch

Sweeping in scope, an agenda to transform the US into a green leader has been launched in Washington DC, here are the key points

 Cong Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen Ed Markey

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and senator Ed Markey present their Green New Deal resolution to reporters on Thursday (Photo: 350.org) 

On Thursday, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and senator Ed Markey presented an outline of a sweeping federal programme aiming at decarbonising the US economy.

The text makes for the most earnest attempt yet to define a concept that has been backed by many a Democratic presidential candidate, often with little detail.

The agenda would touch every aspect of the US economy and calls for carbon emissions and inequality to be tackled as one.

“Today is the day we truly embark on a comprehensive agenda of economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a press conference launching the resolution.

There are many legislative hurdles for the deal to leap if it is ever to become US policy – not least the Republican-controlled senate and White House.

The plan was the beginning of a phase of “political education”, said Markey, that would eventually lead to the adoption of the package. The pair said the document had attracted 60 Democrats as cosponsors, from across the party.

          The third edition of Doha Triathlon achieves huge success      Cache   Translate Page      

More than 400 athletes from Qatar and around the world took part in the third edition of Doha Triathlon which took place at MIA Park on Friday 8th February 2019.

The event which is supported by Qatar Tourism Council, Qatar Triathlon Federation, Qatar Olympic Committee and Qatar Museums featured different races for men and women including Olympic-distance triathlon, sprint, super sprint for youth and adults, in addition to a kids duathlon.

The excellent Doha weather helped greatly in the success of the event that included swimming in the bay next to the Museum of Islamic Art, cycling at Doha corniche and running in the scenic Mia Park. The event kicked off with the sprint race of national championship series, which included 750m swimming, 20 km cycling and 5km running. Saad Al Mejali from Q-Tri emerged as a new Qatar champion with 1:11:52h, taking over Ebrahim Al Romaihi, and reducing his last year’s time by 51 seconds to shift him to the third place, while Abdulrahman Al Jaber was second. It was followed by the Olympic-distance triathlon that involves 1500m swimming, 40 km cycling and 10km running.

The best overall men top place was won by Seyed Hassan Babaei, an international participant from Iran, with a time of 2:04:52, while on the ladies’ section, Toni Snoxell from TriClub Doha won first place with 2:23:59. In the team relays, Police Sport teams had an outstanding performance with Ismail Dergaa/Thomas Whateley/Ahmed Sebbar in first place (1:51:19) and Aziz Moullah/Fadhel Elhativ/Mohamed Mehdi in third (2:01:38). Next was the sprint distance (open category), where last year’s champion Bernard McCullagh kept his title as best over all male reducing his time from 1:06:14 to 1:02:32.

He was followed by Ethan Bennett who also was second last year and veteran international participant from Spain, Ruben Hernando Ferrero with 1:03:34. Aday Alvarez was third in the open category with 1:04:03. In the ladies’ section Isora Sosa Caballero took the first place with 1:12:19 overtaking last year’s champion Carla Pegigueiro who was second with a time of 1:16:20 and international participant Mary Shepro from USA, Endurance Sports, who finished third with 1:17:23 . On team relays, Police Sport took the first place with 1:04:44 by Adam Ayari/Alvin Quimzon/Houssine Lahdou. 

More than 50 participants took part in the Super Sprint distance, with adult beginners and teenagers’ categories, Kids Duathlon, which only included swimming and running, was also overbooked with a variety of ages that ranged between 7 to 12 years old. The morning started with cold temperatures but turned to a very beautiful sunny day with high public attendance. All the participants received a commemorative medal after crossing the finish line, before celebrating in the festive finish line area. Later, Qatar Triathlon Federation officials and representatives of the sponsors and partners took part in the medal ceremony, where top three finishers received special medals and prizes from Al Tawfeeq Travels and Royal Air Maroc.

The success of Doha Triathlon 2019 came as no surprise, as the number of triathlon events in Qatar nearly tripled over the past few years, the country’s population of triathletes is constantly growing, and Qatar Triathlon Federation is working hard to promote the sport and form a strong national team through organizing various events that include the national triathlon series. Doha Triathlon was the third stage of the series, with the fourth and final stages scheduled for Lusail and the Pearl over the next couple of months. Doha Triathlon also clearly strengthened its position as one of the top triathlon events in the region. This year the event attracted triathletes from different countries around the world including Oman, Kuwait, Iran, USA, Great Britain, France, Spain and Romania. 

The third edition of Doha 3 [qatarisbooming.com].jpg

Dr. Nasser Al Mohannadi, Qatar Cycling and Triathlon vice-president, and head of triathlon at the federation, said: “We are proud of the success achieved by the third edition of Doha Triathlon. It is great to see more than 400 participants, coming not only from Qatar, but also from all around the world joining us today. MIA Park provided the perfect setting for the event. We would like to thank Qatar National Tourism Council and Qatar Museums for their support to the event which will in turn support Qatar’s tourism and economy. We also, of course, would like to thank all the participants, our sponsors and our partners, without them it would have not been possible to organize such a wonderful event.”

“The sport of triathlon has seen rapid growth in Qatar during the past few years, thanks to the great support of Qatar Olympic Committee headed by HE Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al-Thani. The number of Qatari participants at this year’s Doha Triathlon increased by 20 percent compared to last year. It is an indication that we are heading in the right way. I was keen on participating in the event today as a triathlete to encourage the younger generation, and we were also honoured by the participation of the Qatar Cycling and Triathlon Federation President, Dr. Mohammed Jaham Al Kuwari and the Qatar National Team members. The future of triathlon in Qatar looks bright,” he added.

Doha Triathlon partners include Al Tawfeeq Travel, Royal Air Maroc, Movenpick Hotel, LES Luxury Equipment Solutions, Qatar Living, Red Bull, Qatar Airways, Royal Riviera, Aqua Carpatica, Vita Coco, Almond Breeze, Eat Natural, Carbon Wheels and Padel Qatar.

A powerful winter storm in the Pacific Northwest is taking the region by surprise, with bitter temperatures and extensive snowfall prompting a state of emergency in Washington State. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared the emergency on Friday, saying residents should limit time outside and stay off the roads. "Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years," Inslee said in a statement . More than 200 flights at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport were cancelled on Friday, and more than 300 were delayed according to the flight tracking website, FlightAware . As of Saturday morning, more than 7 inches of snow had fallen at Sea-Tac airport. It's an occurrence Meteorologist Marc Chenard of the Weather Prediction Center deemed significant.

I took my friendships seriously. They were my family. I would have crawled over hot rocks and broken glass for them. After what happened to Sean, I made it clear to my other friends that I wasn't afraid to be around someone with AIDS and I wasn't afraid to hug them. I wanted them to understand that I am not a fair-weather friend. My parents didn't raise me like that.

Needless to say, some of my friends still decided to disappear and die in private. One friend claimed he was visiting family in Texas. He was really in the hospital. The last time we spoke, I told him I loved him and asked when he was coming home. He promised he'd be home by Christmas. Christmas morning I had a dream that he was fully recovered. He was his old self and full of energy. In the dream, he kept telling me to stop worrying about him, because he was much better.

That morning, I called his house. His sister answered the phone. When I asked to speak to him, she said, hold on. Then, his mother took the phone. She told me that he died that morning.

          A New Generation of Carbon Farmers: Organic, Grass-Fed Ranch Connects Young Women to Agriculture      Cache   Translate Page      
February 6, 2019
Organic Consumers Association
Julie Wilson

For millennia, women have played a central role in farming and ranching communities. Today, a new generation of women are taking on new roles of carbon farmers and ranchers managers.

 

In the U.S., there are more than 900,000 women farmers, according to data collected in 2012 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  That means women constitute 31 percent of the agricultural sector, and contribute upwards of $12 billion to America’s economy.

 

Historically, men have been considered a better fit for work in the agriculture field, work often characterized as rugged and ruthless. But as regenerative agriculture becomes more popular, women are bringing unique strengths to the field.

 

At San Juan Ranch in Colorado’s San Luis Valley, a woman’s kindness and affinity for animals is viewed as a key component in producing humanely raised livestock. The 4,000-acre ranch, owned and operated by Julie Sullivan and George Whitten, is a certified organic, 100-percent grass-fed beef ranch that doubles as a teaching center. Sullivan told the Colorado Springs Gazette:

 

“I think a deep relationship (with the land and animals) really appeals to the young women who want to go into agriculture, or at least the young women that come here. I think that they’re looking for a way for their life to have meaning, for a way to feel their strength and their capacity inside the context of a relationship.”

 

For more than a decade, Sullivan and Whitten have hired interns or apprentices through the Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program. The interns work full time on the ranch for one year, learning about holistic management, animal husbandry, planned grazing, herding, ranch infrastructure maintenance, soil health, cover cropping, low-stress livestock handling, organic certification and the process for finishing grass-fed cattle. According to Quivira’s website:

 

Apprentices emerge from the program with tangible skills, both technical and interpersonal, that are essential for successful employment in sustainable agriculture, and for eventual ownership and management of their own operation.

 

The majority of interns hired to work at San Juan Ranch thus far have been women. In the beginning, Whitten was hesitant to hire women because he was unsure of their willingness to tackle some of the grittier parts of ranching. Again, from the Colorado Springs Gazette:

 

“Ranching communities have always had really strong women outside doing ranch work, but often those were people that either their husband had died or there were no sons in the family. George just didn’t think that young women would want to be covered in blood and puss and do branding and do castrating and want to lay underneath the truck and get oil in their face. It just hadn’t been his personal experience that women would want to do sort of some of that dirty messy part of ranching.”

 

Whitten, however, changed his mind—and his view of the role women play on the ranch—after their first female hire.

 

Among the women apprentices at San Juan Ranch is 25-year-old Morgan Atkinson, an Idaho native whose love for the great outdoors led to an interest in western land management and ranching and grazing practices. Growing up, Atkinson spent summers working at her family’s local grocery store. It was through this experience, as well as her education in environmental science, that Atkinson developed an interest in the way landscapes are used to produce food. She realized that maintaining a healthy ecosystem is key to producing healthy food, healthy soil and healthy animals. Atkinson says:

 

“Being raised in a small community taught me the necessity of supporting the local farmer we knew rather than blindly buying food unaware of where it was coming from. Because we are a local and independent grocery store, we rely on the same kind of local support and reciprocity. When I became independently interested in agriculture, I recognized that these ideas were already ingrained in my values."

 

By connecting young women to ranching and organic regenerative agriculture, San Juan Ranch is helping to build a new generation of carbon farmers with an emphasis on animal welfare. The cows at the ranch are 100-percent grass-fed, and when finished, are mainly sold wholesale through Sweet Grass Cooperative, a co-op co-founded by Sullivan and Whitten that’s comprised of small, sustainable ranchers.

 

With more than 30 years of experience in holistic management, Whitten understands the symbiotic relationship between purposeful cattle grazing and the carbon-sequestering potential of healthy grasslands. Through cover cropping and holistic grazing, the land at San Juan Ranch remains productive despite enduring severe droughts and other unpredictable climate change-driven weather patterns.

 

The ranch also partners with organic farmers who raise green cover crops as grazing forage. Grazing cattle on these fields allows ranchers to increase soil carbon and improve soil structure, while also finishing the cattle on high-quality forage.

I love the booties with a dress! I actually think booties are a better look with thick black tights than pumps. For black tights generally, I think any color shoe other than black can look odd, and while the black on black can look slimming, any difference between the tones of the black can throw off the outfit. If the rights are quite a bit thicker, like a fleece-lined tight, then I think they look very odd indeed with a pump. Seasonally, for a cold weather tight I think a bootie is a much better match.

          Auburn, California       Cache   Translate Page      

At last, I’ve taken my Carnegie-quest to California, where a bounty of 87 await me.  If it weren’t for the wrecker’s ball, it would be 144, the most of any state other than Indiana with 167. The 57 it has lost are more than were built in all but eleven states, but not the highest percentage of loss.  That ignominy goes to Texas, where only thirteen of its thirty-three remain.

It will be the first winter in a while that I won’t be touring in some distant land—Senegal and Madagascar the past two winters, and Taiwan and the Philippines, the previous two.  I had planned to stick to this hemisphere this winter,  flying into Uruguay, then biking through Brasil to the Guyanas for the lone Carnegie in South America in Georgetown, while knocking off the four countries I’d yet to bike in South American—the three Guyanas and Uruguay—but I would have had to have left by November to avoid the brutal summer heat of Brasil and couldn’t get the visas in time.  

California and it’s Carnegies have beckoned for a long time, so they made for an excellent, though far less exotic, second choice.  California in a way is like another country with an economy even larger than Brasil’s, so I know I will have an enriching ride and without having to flash my passport.   I’d have been here a month already, nearly completing my mission and moving on to the four Carnegies in Arizona, but Janina had an exhibition of her water colors in Bloomington, Indiana, where she received her MFA, that opened February 1.  No way could I  miss that.  It was a most productive delay allowing me to track down six books on Carnegie libraries, three at Indiana University’s library, that I just had enough time to read during the three days Janina hung her work.  One was on the Carnegies of Indiana and another on those of Ohio, each written by a fanatic with photos and brief descriptions of each.   The other was on 71 of the Carnegies in the states of Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, California and Idaho, written by an academic.  

Back in Chicago I took advantage of my Northwestern library privileges to read its copy of a book on the Carnegies of Ireland and to have it send away for the University of Illinois’ copy of a book on the Carnegies of Kansas.  I had the option of the University of Chicago or National Louis University in downtown Chicago for a book on the Carnegies of Ontario.  The latter, across the street from the Art Institute, was a little easier to access, so I availed myself of it, denying myself the pleasure of reading in the hallowed stacks of the U of C. I have yet to determine if there is a book on the Carnegies of California.  The only other states I know that have a book written on their Carnegies are Illinois, Wisconsin and Nebraska.  Only Nebraska awaits me. 

This deep Carnegie immersion had me plenty eager to be witnessing Carnegies in the flesh, or brick.  It was a fifty-three hour train trip, three hours longer than scheduled, to Sacramento for my first.   The train was less than half full, so I could comfortably sprawl on the floor at the back of my car on my sleeping pad both nights, arriving in Sacramento plenty refreshed.  Unfortunately the train arrived with less than an hour of daylight left, so I only had time for a quick look at Sacramento’s Carnegie before pushing to get out of the city to find a place to camp.  And I only had a few minutes to talk with Tim, my long-time occasional traveling buddy and fellow nomad (or yes-sane) who happened to be hanging out in California for the winter tending to Maria’s sister, who is undergoing chemotherapy in San Jose.  She presently is between sessions and can get along on her own, so he was able to meet me at the train with his bike, adorned in a day-glow jacket, and will tag along with me for a while in his car  as we did several years ago on one of my  rides to the vigil at the School of the Americas in South Carolina.  Time with Tim is as alluring as Carnegies.

We biked over to the Carnegie, just a few blocks away.  It had a huge glassy addition to its side along a main thoroughfare in the heart of the city, but the three-story original continued to radiate a century’s worthy of majesty.  The new entrance with automatic doors and with no steps to navigate might be more user-friendly, but the original through a pair of columns and up a set of steps was far more soul-satisfying. 

After a quick peak inside, we had to get down to the business of finding a place for the night.  Tim returned to his car.  He had several possible sites where he could park and sleep, including a Walmart.  I had seen a handful of hobo encampments from the train on the route I’d be taking north out of the city, that I might intrude upon if I found nothing better. I passed a couple of very uninviting clusters of tents along the road surrounded by clutter. I didn’t have to resort to any of them as I came upon a golf course just before the airport as pitch dark settled in that offered a thick cluster of trees between fairways far enough from the road for some quiet.  It  made for a fine first night in the tent in 2019.  

It was 43 in my tent at daybreak, so I didn’t anticipate any golfers.  It was two miles to the Walmart.  There were RVs in its lot, but no Tim.  I went inside for some chocolate milk and a phone card to revive the phone I had last used four years ago on that trip to South Carolina with Tim, to better enable us to advise each other of our whereabouts between rendezvousing at Carnegies.  After two hours and failing to activate three different cards, the kindly, well-intentioned young man helping me, told me I would find a more knowledgeable person at the Walmart Superstore in Roseville, fifteen miles north where the next Carnegie awaited me.  The guy there was knowledgeable enough to tell me my Virgin Mobil phone was too old to be reestablsihed and that his store could not give me a refund on the $20 card I had bought at the other store.  The loss of three hours on this ordeal was worse than the loss of $20.  The phone was just going to be a luxury anyway, as Tim and I have done fine without it on other occasions.  


When I showed up at the Roseville Carnegie a couple of hours later than expected, Tim’s car with his bike mounted on top awaited me.  The handsome building was now the town museum. When I entered the attendant warmly greeted me and told me my friend was downstairs.  Tim was coming up the stairs accompanied by a docent who had spent the past hour giving him a thorough tour of all the museum had to offer.  One of the highlights was a train set that filled one of the rooms.  Tim pointed out a billowing cloud that represented a huge explosion that had taken place in the local train yard of a train that was transporting ordinance in the ‘70s for the Vietnam War.  The docent said she was 12 years old at the time and heard it in Sacramento twenty miles away.  It caused massive damage but miraculously resulted in no fatalities.  

The next Carnegie was ten miles to the north in Lincoln.  The traffic remained thick and so did the homes and businesses along the road.  At least there were periodic bike lanes or wide shoulders.  This was a flat valley floor with the Sierras within site to the east. With the temperature in the 50s I was wearing tights, but this was almost tropical compared to the polar vortex that had just plunged temperatures to near record lows of 50 below zero with the wind chill the week before I left.  I escaped the brunt of it in Bloomington, 200 miles south of Chicago, but was still out riding in minus ten degree temperatures, including a five-mile ride to and from Dwight’s farm outside of town. 


Once again Tim welcomed me to the Carnegie in Lincoln.  As with Roseville’s, it was easily the most distinguished building in town.  Likewise it hadn’t been adorned with an addition and had a plaque announcing it was on the National Register of Historic Places.  It had recently been replaced and presently was looking for a new inhabitant.  

The fifteen-mile ride over to Auburn gained over a thousand feet and at last had a rural flavor, though not much.  This was on old highway 40, the Lincoln Highway, the first coast-to-coast Road constricted in 1913 to promote automobile use.  It intersected with Interstate 80 just before Auburn.  Bikes were allowed to ride on it for half a mile, with no other alternative in the rugged terrain just before Auburn, an old gold-mining town with a statue of the town’s gold-miner founder at its entrance.


It’s Carnegie was up a steep road and once again Tim was there to welcome me and give me a synopsis on what he had scouted out in the vicinity.  He had stopped to see an old Finnish miners hall recommended by the docent at the Roseville Carnegie and also a pyramid an artist had constructed on his property.  He had no report on the contents of this Carnegie, now at Art Gallery, as it was closed.  The only art we saw were some sculptures of stacks of books on pikes behind the library in an enclosed garden with a few chairs that looked like a nice space for warmer-weather gatherings.  The plaque on this library said it had been replaced by a larger library in 1968, fifty years after it had been built.  It described it’s style as Greek Revival.  It had been designated a significant California building, but had yet to be given NRHP status.  It was the first of the four Carnegies so far to have “Free To All” on its front facade.


Despite the Walmart run-around, it had been a fine first day of biking.  I knew I had the favor of the gods as I had gathered two neckerchiefs along the way, both nicely-faded reds.  I can never have enough.  I can imagine a thousand and one or even a million and one uses for them.  I am most eager though to find a few license plates to add to my wall in one of Dwight’s out-buildings. At present my most westerly state is Colorado.  North Dakota is the furtherest north and Alabama the furthest south.

Some of the biggest challenges our society faces are related to climate change and the impact this will have on the environment and on our own activities. The increasing concentration of the greenhouse gases is a prominent driver of a changing climate, but the extent of their impacts is sector dependent and generally more difficult to characterise. In order to build a climate proof society, we need to improve the way in which climate datasets are processed and used to inform decisions in different businesses and societal sectors. The Copernicus climate change service (C3S) has been developed to meet these needs, aiming at supporting policymakers, businesses and citizens through the provision of high-quality usable information. The Service consolidates many years of preparatory research and development and delivers through the Climate data store a long list of quality-controlled and operationally-produced climate relevant datasets. This ITT is about setting up and demonstrating downstream applications, known as “Demo-Cases”, using one or more of the C3S products as input. It aims at demonstrating the full potential of the C3S infrastructure, including the diverse set of datasets in the CDS catalogue and the CDS toolbox. This ITT will facilitate the creation of indicators, tools and visualisations that do not necessarily have a sustainable business case, but are excellent communication tools and will show-case the CDS and, hence, increase uptake. ECMWF expects that individual bids in the range between 50 000 and 150 000 EUR will be adequate to achieve the objectives of this call, depending on the scope of the proposed demo case. Nevertheless, ECMWF may consider bids outside of that range if duly justified by the bidder. The ITT call is open to all demo-cases addressing any societal sector and C3S products. Notwithstanding the above, ECMWF is looking forward selecting a number of proposals related to data visualization and scientific communication through the arts, as they offer a strong potential to enhance the uptake of the C3S service with wide communities. Please see Volume I (Instructions and Conditions) of the ITT documents Please see Volume V (Contract for Procurement - Services for Copernicus) of the ITT documents ECMWF will only enter into a contract with a single legal person/entity. Due to the need to include performance and compliance obligations in the contract, ECMWF will contract only with a single legal person or entity which is competent to undertake and commit to these obligations. ECMWF recognises that some bids will involve a number of organisations which may wish to work together to deliver the contract requirements. In such cases, these organisations must identify a lead contractor who will sign the contract with ECMWF and who will be responsible for putting in place legal arrangements to ensure that it can guarantee that all other organisations will also meet the contract obligations. ECMWF will not enter into multiple contracts with individual members of consortia or groups of service providers. See Volume V (Contract for procurement — Services for Copernicus) and Volume II (Specification) of the ITT documents. Tenders will not be eligible unless they are submitted by persons or entities based or registered in a member state of the EU or in a member state of ECMWF. Tenderers must complete the online questionnaire in ECMWF's eProcurement Portal.

In submitting this notice ECMWF does not waive the privileges and immunities granted to it by virtue of its status as an Intergovernmental Organisation or submit itself to any jurisdiction. Tenders must be submitted using ECMWF’s eProcurement Portal as described in Volume I of the ITT documents. Hard copy (paper) submissions will not be accepted. This is a rolling Invitation to Tender, whereby bids will be evaluated on a quarterly basis, with closing dates every three months (14.9.2018, 14.12.2018, 14.3.2019, 14.6.2019), when bids submitted during the previous calendar quarter will be evaluated. Bidders will be informed about the outcome of the evaluation within six weeks following each closing date. Reminders on the evaluation dates will be posted on the C3S website (https://climate.copernicus.eu/) at regular points in time. As an outcome of each quarterly evaluation, bids will be either selected for negotiations in that round, rejected, or included in a reserve list for future consideration. 6 weeks upon each evaluation date, ECMWF will update the C3S website with an overview of the sectors and C3S products for which a use-case has been selected.

          A Beginner's Guide To Dressing For Cold Weather      Cache   Translate Page      


It was rainy and disappointingly cold on day two of NYFW, but that doesn't mean anyone wore a boring old trench coat to match the disgusting day; quite the opposite, actually. Everyone brought their A game in terms of rainy day wear, and matched the rest of their outfit to their outerwear. Most people didn't abandon the bright colors from yesterday, either. As a wearer of the same fluffy black coat each winter, I have a thing or two to learn about dressing for the weather from the street style stars of day two.

Below, learn how to appropriately dress for the weather with me, and get some major jacket envy with our favorite street style looks from NYFW day two.

If so then look no further, we are just the team you are looking for. We take pride in our work, with high quality craftsmanship, excellent customer service and with affordable prices.We build entire structures, from start to finish - for that you need experience, commitment, integrity and the peace of mind that comes with a guaranteed commitment to quality first.Seasonal MaintenanceWinter Seasonal Maintenance ChecklistIt feels as if fall only just got here, but before you know it winter will be reaching out to envelope us with its frosty embrace. For many, winter means freezing temperatures, long dark nights, and snow and ice so you'll want to be prepared for when the first snowflake falls. By following a simple checklist of winter seasonal maintenance you can avoid everything from burst pipes to astronomical heating bills while staying safe and toasty warm.Winterize Exterior Faucets and Sprinkler SystemsWhen the temperature drops below freezing, pipes are at risk of freezing. Drain outdoor faucets and wrap in insulating covers like foam or towels held tight with a bungee cord. While you're at it, drain water from any built-in irrigation or sprinkler systems and garden hoses to prevent freezing and cracking.Clean Out GuttersWithout a doubt, the fall has left your gutters overflowing with dead leaves, pine needles, and debris. Winter weather is notorious for rain and snow, so keep those gutters from overflowing by cleaning them out with a gloved hand or shovel. Don't feel comfortable going on the roof? Hire a professional to make quick work out of it and keep your feet safely on the ground. Also make sure the downspout runs off into an absorbent area to avoid floodingAdd Insulation to the Attic and BasementWith fluctuating winter temperatures, there is the potential for water to freeze and unfreeze and seep into your home through the roof or basement. Avoid icy messes and keep the cold winter air out by adding extra insulation to your attic ceiling and basement walls. You can utilize traditional insulation or go for the more modern spray-foam that acts as an instant barrier against those negative temps.Service Your Furnace and Duct SystemYou don't want to be caught in 15-degree weather without a working furnace. Before the cold temperatures really set in, have your furnace and duct system serviced to ensure that it is all in tip-top shape. Worried about spending too much on heating over the winter months? Install a programmable thermostat so you can control temperatures (i.e. only turning on when you are home, turning off before bed, etc.)Inspect Fireplaces and Wood stovesFireplaces and wood stoves are great ways to heat houses on the cheap and are also cozy to sit by when the weather turns foul. Ensure that you are prepped by stocking up on firewood and checking the dampers and flues to make sure you don't end up with a room full of smoke and soot. If your chimney looks questionable or hasn't been cleaned in a long time, hire a professional chimney sweep to get it in wood-burning shape again.Check Seals on Doors and WindowsYou don't want any of that precious heat escaping right out of a poorly insulated window! To avoid this problem, check window and door seals and repair with caulk or draft guards if necessary. Retain even more heat by layering curtains to keep out chilly breezes, or install storm windows and doors if you live in a particularly frigid area.It may seem like a lot of work to get your home prepared for winter, but in the long run you'll not only save money, but you'll also avoid any expensive accidents like burst pipes. Take the time to follow preventative steps and you'll be reaping the benefits by the time the first snow dusts your door you will be ready.Insulation and Weather-StrippingWindows and doors keep outside air out inside air in helping keep your house cooler during the summer and warmer during the winterPower WashingWant your home to look its best? You should consider our professional pressure washing services. By power washing your deck, siding, driveway, and other exterior areas around your home, you can quickly and effectively remove built-up dirt, sediment, and other debris. This not only helps the areas look beautiful, but it can also reduce wear and tear by getting rid of mold, algae, chalk, insects, weeds, and more. Such build-up will, over time, break down and cause damage to wood / masonry and degrade paint / stains.Concrete WashingConcrete cleaning is as much protection and maintenance as aesthetic. Pressure washing concrete removes built up dirt and salt deposits from weathering and general use over time. Once cleaned, your concrete will hold its look for months, turning heads around the neighborhood. Our flat surface pressure washing professionals specialize in driveway cleaning, pressure washing concrete in patios, pool-sides, sidewalks, and stamped concrete.- High pressure cleaning for exterior flat surfaces- Re-sand and seal paver stones- Clean and seal flat surface concrete driveways- Graffiti clean upWindow WashingGeneral Updates Repairs and RenovationsHome improvement, home renovation, or remodelling is the process of renovating or making additions to one's home. Home improvement can be projects that upgrade an existing home interior (such as electrical and plumbing), exterior (masonry, concrete, siding, roofing), or other improvements to the property (i.e. garden work or garage maintenance/additions).- Upgrading heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC).- Upgrading rooms with luxuries, such as adding gourmet features to a kitchen or a hot tub spa to a bathroom.- Increasing the capacity of plumbing and electrical systems.- Waterproofing basements.- Soundproofing rooms, especially bedrooms and baths.Maintenance and repairEditMaintenance projects can include:- Roof tear-off and replacement.- Concrete and masonry repairs to the foundation and chimney.- Repainting rooms, walls or fences- Repairing plumbing and electrical systems.Additional spaceEditAdditional living space may be added by:- Turning marginal areas into livable spaces such as turning basements into recrooms, home theaters, or home offices - or atticsinto spare bedrooms.- Extending one's house with rooms added to the side of one's home or, sometimes, extra levels to the original roof. Such a new unit of construction is called an "add-on".[2]Saving energyEditHomeowners may reduce utility costs with:- Energy-efficient thermal insulation, replacement windows, and lighting.- Renewable energy with biomass pellet stoves, wood-burning stoves, solar panels, wind turbines, programmable thermostats, and geothermal exchange heat pumps (see autonomous building).Safety and preparednessEditEmergency preparedness safety measures such as:- Home fire and burglar alarm systems.- Fire sprinkler systems to protect homes from fires.- Security doors, windows, and shutters.- Storm cellars as protection from tornadoes and hurricanes.- Bomb shelters especially during the 1950s as protection from nuclear war.- Backup generators for providing power during power outages.Adjust/Repair Patio DoorsRecognizing when your slide door needs adjustment and being able to make those changes correctly is important to the longevity of the sliding screen door as well as its proper movement. This is a cheap and usually easy fix instead of replacing the door you can just adjust it for youAnimal Critter Damage RepairThe reason that animal-proofing is necessary is because very few homes -- even brand-new ones -- are animal-proof until a wildlife control professional makes them that way. That's because carpenters, roofers, and other professionals who build houses almost never have a sufficient appreciation for the ability of animals to get into a building if they really want to.Most homes have what we call "constru itction gaps," by which we basically mean any gap that's big enough for an animal to squeeze through. Because some animals (like mice) can squeeze through cracks as narrow as the thickness of a pencil, and others (like rats and flying squirrels) can squeeze through a hole roughly the size of a quarter, it really doesn't take much of a gap for critters to get into your home.Once they get inside you home or commercial building, animals or birds can cause all sorts of problems, including:- Health hazards, odors, and allergenic dusts due to droppings, urine, shed parasites, and shed skin, dander, fur, hair, or feathers.- Physical damage to the building or stored items due to gnawing, scratching, and nesting.- Contamination or damage of stored property due to urine stains and droppings.- Damage and overheating due to clogging of cooling fans and other parts of mechanical equipment such as air-conditioning compressors, HVAC equipment, and generators.- Damage to vehicles stored in garages.Proactive Animal ExclusionAnimals, in this case flying squirrels, can cause you to lose your home by creating a fire risk.We have lots of customers who have had animal problems in the past, and when they move to a new home, one of the first things they do is call us to inspect the house and animal-proof it, if necessary. That's because having gone through the problem of having animals in their previous homes, when they move, they want to be proactive and seal the animals out of of the new home right from the get-go.As mentioned above, once animals get into your home or building, they do damage. They do damage to your home, as well as to anything stored in the areas where the animals decided to stay. They can also damage HVAC equipment, insulation, electrical wiring, and sometimes even plumbing. These problems can be very costly, so obviously it's better to seal the animals out than to wait until they've already moved in.When you sign up for animal-proofing from Rid-A-Critter, we begin with an exhaustive inspection by a skilled animal control professional, who will look at every inch of your home, from top to bottom, for even the tiniest of gaps. Once we've identified all the potential animal entry points, we animal-proof your home or building, using whatever methods are needed given your situation.Animal Damage RepairAnimal damage repair to a roof done with professional care and workmanship.Animal damage repair is exactly what it sounds like: Repairing the damage that animals caused in and to your home. It also includes animal-proofing as part of the job because it would be kind of dumb to fix the damage caused by animals without also sealing your home to prevent more damage in the future.Animals can cause all sorts of damage from the moment they set their minds to getting into your home. For example, a rat or a squirrel may come across a small home, take a look at it, and decide it's not quite big enough to get in. No worries for the rodent, though: They just use their powerful jaws and teeth to gnaw away at the hole until it's big enough for them to use nice and comfortably.In fact, almost any animal that gets into homes will cause some sort of damage to the structure and any items you have stored inside of it. Some damage will be physical damage to the building, for example, the rodent gnawing we mentioned before. Other damage can be related to the animals' urine and droppings, which contaminate stored items, and which contain pathogens that can become airborne and spread through the home.Appliance Installation / RemovalWe're here for you every step of the way. Our appliance experts can deliver, install, protect and repair your major appliances, plus haul away and recycle your old ones.Ceiling Fan InstallationAn easy-to-install ceiling fan can make a real difference in your home's climate. A simple ceiling fan is can be more beneficial than other heating and cooling options, as its operating cost is much lower.In almost all homes, the fan is installed in the center of the room, replacing a central light fixture in the ceiling. This spot provides a smooth air flow throughout most of the room, and since a fan draws about the same amount of power as a ceiling light fixture, the electrical circuit shouldn't be overloaded.Childproof Home- Custom baby and child safety gates for top and bottom of stairs, hallways and play areas.- Durable easy to use child proof cabinet and drawer locks and latches not found in stores .- Safety straps for your TV's, furniture, dressers, changing tables and bookshelves.- Self close electrical outlet, outlet plugs, power strip covers, CO and smoke detectors.- Specialized door locks, window locks and window guards.- Bathroom safety items including toilet locks, spout cushions and shower locks.- Customized Plexiglas for stair banisters, balconies and decks- Grab Bars for bathrooms, showers, bathtubs, hallways- Childproofing Tailored to YOUR Needs!Dryer Vent Installation / CleaningThis is an item everybody forget to do.

          Seattle's Unusually Frigid Temperatures And Heavy Snowfall Stretch Into Next Week      Cache   Translate Page      
A powerful winter storm in the Pacific Northwest is taking the region by surprise, with bitter temperatures and extensive snowfall prompting a state of emergency in Washington State. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared the emergency on Friday, saying residents should limit time outside and stay off the roads. "Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years," Inslee said in a statement . More than 200 flights at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport were cancelled on Friday, and more than 300 were delayed according to the flight tracking website, FlightAware . As of Saturday morning, more than 7 inches of snow had fallen at Sea-Tac airport. It's an occurrence Meteorologist Marc Chenard of the Weather Prediction Center deemed significant. "It does happen in Seattle, typically more in December and January," Chenard said. "Even with that, it's an event that happens once a year, once every couple of years."

          Comment on The Pilot Turned Back: Engine Failure Leads to Fatal Crash by Rudy Jakma      Cache   Translate Page      
Chip, yes I agree with you. Somehow, somewhere it seems that this pilot somehow got "tunnel vision", a fixation on one aspect of his problem. Was it vapout lock? Maybe. We just don't know what went on in the Bonanza during the last few minutes of his flight. Was he distracted by his passenger? We will never know. Was he experienced on this type of aircraft? That can be ascertained. One thing is for certain: Once the human brain goes into a panic, reason will be the first victim. In an aircraft this may be manifested by a fixation on one aspect of the problem and losing the ability to finding a solution by reasoning it out. Many years ago, actually I think it was in 1969, I was working as a commercial pilot. There were virtually no jobs for pilots. Banner towing was a way to keep the licence and earn a bit in the process. In the period between roughly 1955 and 1975 this was still good business. I did about 3700 hours flying advertsiing banners, mainly behind Piper Super Cubs but we also used C172 and other types. One company even used a Dornier Do28, a twin with STOL capacity. My first employer was called Westdeutsche Luftwerbung Theodor Wuellenkemper KG. I believe it still exists as a cargo operator, now called "WDL Flugdienst". I got the job in an unusual way: After getting my CPL - basic, no IF nor ME ratings - I went to Hilversum where my aviation career had started. It was 1969, Easter and that always attracted a lot of air advertising activities. There were two companies based there: One called Skylight, the other Luchtreclame Nederland, later Reclamair. In fact it was actually the start of the Dutch air charter comapny Martinair. Reclamair was very busy that Easter weekend, they had even rented aircraft from other companies. In those days it was not unusual to have 20 or more banner towers in the air. The chief pilot, whom I knew well, told me that he was not running a flying school. No work for a novice CPL. But Reclamair had hired a few Super Cubs from WDL and the boss, Herr Wuellenkemper himself, was there to supervise his pilots. I approached him, he told me that he needed pilots. So a weeklater I drove to Essen-Muelheim where they were based. In Germany there had just been a change in the law that required that first officers working for an airline would need an ATPL. Which forced many German pilots to ask for a furlough and go back to school. Many pilots who had a job flying light twins and who did have an ATPL filled their positions, it caused a surge for the few better jobs, leaving the bottom ranks: banner towing, sightseeing, photo flying, vacant. Which, temporarily, opened those positions to be filled by Dutch and Norwegian pilots. But even applying for one of those jobs I was promptly sent away by the chief pilot there, a Herr Pfannkuch. But just as I was driving out of the gate he ran after me and called me back. They had just let one pilot go and I could start. Immediately. Which in those days meant getting a German CPL with aero tow rating ("including in-flight object pick-up") and I did two seasons there. The pay was miserable: Basic pay 300 Deutsche Mark per month, plus DM 3 per flying hour. We often did more than 40 hour per week, so weather permitting we could earn DM 1500 a month. Gross. Where is this going? I hear you ask. Well, soon I was promoted to "Verbandsfuehrer" or formation leader. Which meant a basic pay of DM 500 a month and DM 5 per flying hour. Nearly all flights were three aircraft and often there were 21 Pipers in the air, every day except Sundays. We were paid on the strength of a barogram, carried in the leader's Super Cub. After flight, we had to bring it to the "Luftaufsicht", this was not ATC because most of the guys in the control tower spoke no English. He would give ADVISORY instructions "Landen sie nach eigenem Ermessen" or "land at your own discretion". Anyway, the barograph would be opened, the barogram checked, stamped and signed after which a new roll would be entered, the ink replenished and the barograph sealed. Some of the pilots were Norwegian. One had been a flying instructor and had been involved in a very nasty accident when his pupil, a sturdy fellow, froze at the controls during a spinning exercise. The instructor was not able to overpower him and they crashed. I am not sure if the student survived, but the instructor still bore the scars of extensive facial reconstruction. He had recovered and went back to flying. One of the very few jobs available was in Germany with the WDL. He was in my formation when one day he reported engine trouble. We were not in controlled airspace and communicated using a VHF frequency assigned to our company. He reported fuel starvation. The aim was to stay the maximum time up in the air. In order to do that, we took off on one tank, then switched to the other until it ran dry. Then switch back to the still nearly full tank and finish the mission. Somehow, this pilot got confused. His body had recovered from the crash, his nerves had not. We could see him losing height, then the engine would pick up again. Between us and a nearby airfield was a military area where they were shooting with live grenades. I called the military, asked them to suspend their artillery to allow an aircraft in distress to pass through. I told the pilot to drop the banner and we crossed the firing area. He landed safely. I called the company. The chief pilot arrived soon after in another aircraft with a relief pilot. The banner was reovered by sending a car. The cause was soon established: after running one tank dry, he (I won't betray him by giving his name) switched first, correctly, to the full tank. But then, for some unexplained reason, back to the dry one. This he did repeatedly until he got totally confused. This man had no doubt been a fine pilot. He had suffered an awful accident but had the guts to try and get back flying. Before the chief pilot's arrival I gave him a detailed briefing on the tank selector operation. He calmed down and I reckoned that the best course of action would be to allow him to complete the flight. The chief pilot thought otherwise, put him in the passenger seat and the relief pilot took over. This was of course an extreme example, but it does show how panic can take over and prevent the affected brain to function rationally. This pilot was sent home. I don't know if he ever flew again. But there is a fine twist here: This was a large operation for it's kind of business. Up to 21 aircraft in the sky at any given time, 6 days a week, meant an equal number of pilots. I was at the time the only Dutchman, there were some 6 Norwegians. In the weekend we would on occasion visit a local disco. Not often, we simply could not afford it, not on our salary. But we met a few girls there and the Norwegian who was sent home has befriended a nurse there. She joined our group and we all chatted and danced. When I saw her again, of course she wanted to know where her friend was. She had not seen nor heard from him for several weeks. I had to explain what had happened. Well, we are already more than 48 years married. She is Irish, we live near Dublin.

A powerful winter storm in the Pacific Northwest is taking the region by surprise, with bitter temperatures and extensive snowfall prompting a state of emergency in Washington State. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared the emergency on Friday, saying residents should limit time outside and stay off the roads. "Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years," Inslee said in a statement . More than 200 flights at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport were cancelled on Friday, and more than 300 were delayed according to the flight tracking website, FlightAware . As of Saturday morning, more than 7 inches of snow had fallen at Sea-Tac airport. It's an occurrence Meteorologist Marc Chenard of the Weather Prediction Center deemed significant. "It does happen in Seattle, typically more in December and January," Chenard said. "Even with that, it's an event that happens once a year, once every couple of years."

CBD Oil, Dogs, Cancer: Why You Haven’t Heard More About It

Dr. Demian Dressler

Top Veterinary Articles of the Week: CBD Oil and Dog Cancer, and more ...

I have never tried CBD oil for my dogs yet but it is filed in my mind as something to consider depending on circumstances. If there was a lack of better, more effective treatment, lack of options or if it was a prudent addition to an existing treatment, I am open to it.

In his article, Dr. Dressler talks about CBD oil and its use for dogs with cancer.

"Why don't vets talk about CBD oil for dogs with cancer?"

Cookies physiotherapist used CBD for her dog who had cancer and it was very helpful. One day she ran out and before she could get more she quickly learned how much difference in pain management it really made.

Unfortunately, there is more than medical aspect to deal with when it comes to CBD oil--a legal one. Your veterinarian might not even be allowed to discuss this with you. That makes the situation very frustrating.

Read Dr. Dressler's article to learn more about the legal challenges surrounding the use of CBD oil for dog cancer.


How Much Sleep Should Your Dog Get?

Dr. Karen Becker/MercolaHealthyPets

How much do my dogs sleep? Depends on what else they have to do. When Cookie goes for walks and rides, she'll sleep very little during the day. She does sleep like a log after. When the weather is too terrible to go anywhere, she'll spend most of the day napping.

I'd say a dog's sleep pattern depends on both nature and circumstances.

On average, dogs sleep for 12 to 14 hours a day. That just about fits Cookie as well. I imagine that dogs who are home alone all day sleep a lot more. Cookie's normal routine consists of 3 hours of outside activity, about 1 hour of car rides. About an additional 3 hours go to chewing a bone and social interactions. Some time is spent on meals, getting massages, following us around and stuff like that. Overall, it seems that it leaves her 12 to 14 hours for a good night sleep and naps during the day.

Like with everything, any changes in sleeping habits, unless they correspond to changes in lifestyle, should be considered an important clue about your dog's wellbeing. This applies to changes in both directions.

To learn more about dogs' sleeping patterns, what's behind them and when it is a concern, read Dr. Becker's article.

I know some people have put a lot of effort into backtesting this thing, and thank you for that. I am thinking about doing the same thing and sticking a small chuck in a Roth IRA and letting it rip on this strategy.



One thing though, how does this approach compare to a 3x leveraged all weather portfolio? Given the inclusion of intermediate treasuries and gold to help during some of the other scenarios mentioned I would love to see how it stacks up. I see the back testing run during the 50-70 and 60-80 stretch was favorable, but these periods are specifically what the addition of gold and intermediate treasuries into the all weather portfolio were for.


While my strategy shares certain characteristics with the All-Weather Portfolio, I don't think All Weather is the most efficient thing to hold for the long term. Mainly because it devotes 25% of the risk budget to fight inflation - yet unexpected inflation has not been a problem for almost 40 years. To me, the smarter thing to do is to weight the long term likelihood of each "risk quadrant" to determine your asset allocation. In which case, sure, Gold and TIPS will have a role, but not 25%.



To put it another way, if you live in Florida, should your closet be 25% winter clothing?

SAD

This is a complaint.

I have been living a long time and some people might feel too long, however, the fact remains. This is not done out of spite but because I don’t know any better. But something is bothering me lately that I find sad.

As we develop new means of communications, we are losing our manners and ability to communicate!
 
No longer do we talk to each other, instead we text one another. It is quick and states: “I really don’t feel like talking to you so read this and don’t bother me. I remember when a phone call was a part of the social niceties of society. When you called it seemed that you were communicating in a nice way, saying hello and how are you?  You enquired about one’s health and the health of the family, you asked how life was treating one and you left answering the same questions.

If someone sent you a gift, a thank you call or note went out. I don’t understand today’s courtesy: it stinks. Texts messages are rude and I wish they never existed. I might be convenient but it is rude. Then again, that cell phone is an instrument that should have been invented and buried in the inventor’s backyard under the dog poop.

Go into a restaurant and you see families eating dinner. Are they looking with each other, are they conversing with one another? No! Instead, they are looking into their cell phones with their heads down. The damned thing rings with some annoying sound to show how cool we are and conversations are interrupted and people are ignored because e someone is calling, interrupting.

Now don’t get me wrong it is a great invention, it takes pictures so we can annoy one another with ‘selfies’ and become more obnoxious that we think we are, it can answer questions and if can do other things like give us the weather forecast or provide apps for other things to make our lives easier.

But they are nothing but an annoyance.

Those people are all wrong :slight_smile:#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

I write software for a living, but on very resource-constrained devices. My job involves getting a lot of functionality out of not a lot. And here I am holding this device which runs at 20x the clock speed of the stuff on my bench, with four main CPUs and an array of GPU cores, plus 100x the memory on a DDR3 bus, and there it sits, thinking about who-knows-what for 15 seconds, while I’m waiting for it to do something trivial like render a page of text. FFS. 15 seconds is enough CPU time to forecast next week’s weather and play a few games of chess during idle cycles.

I get it. A general-purpose device demands a lot of general-purpose software overhead. But the way I see it is this: if my fingers can move faster than your UI can update the display, then you, the UI designer, got something wrong somewhere.

I don’t think it’s just me with one underpowered device: I’ve had several that do the same thing. A bit like Windows, they tend to start off OK and then become increasingly unresponsive over a period of months, even with a junk-cleaning app.

Then there are the inexplicable reboots, the occasional failed shutdown (which drains the battery and ruins it), hit-and-miss WiFi connectivity, touchscreen malfunctions in the presence of minor EMI or damp, pointless updates to the OS that break compatibility … maybe I’m a crusty old technophobe, but seriously, just give me something with clicky buttons on it and a proper RTOS underneath.

For what it’s worth, I think it started off as a very solid concept. Then somewhere along the line, somebody decided to make it like Windows, except more painful to develop software for. They forgot what sort of hardware it was going to run on, and what it was going to be used for.

This campground was almost perfect! We called ahead for reservations and used our Passport America discount. We arrived around 4pm and were glad we had reservations because the park had no more open spots. Check in was quick and the office has a small camp store with some basic necessities, fishing supplies, and firewood. They also have propane. They have FHU sites, but our site (#24) was a back-in site with 30 amp and electric. There is a dump station. It was mostly level and sandy. Our spot was great because it was at the end of the "cul-de-sac". The spaces are not uncomfortably close together. We did have a picnic table and fire ring. They do have WiFi, but it was not the greatest. The best reception we got with our Verizon cell service was about 2 bars of 3G! It made it difficult to get any work done. There is a laundry room ($1.50 for each machine). They had a pretty small playground with swings. They did have horseshoes and basketball. The clubhouse had a pool table, TV, puzzles, and books, but it was locked when we tried to check it out. They did offer free coffee in the morning in the clubhouse (which is the only reason we knew what was inside). They allow fishing on the bank and have a small boat launch for guests. The restroom/shower was fairly clean with plenty of hot water. There is only one shower stall and 2 toilets. You can lock the bathhouse door for privacy. We really enjoyed the setting with the big trees and the riverbank. The slow internet and low cell signal was the only downside for us personally. We made a day trip into Navarre Beach and Pensacola Beach. The weather was cool, windy, and overcast but we still enjoyed it.

Success in meeting the Paris Climate Pact’s most ambitious target might not be enough, a recent study says, to prevent a serious meltdown in the Hindu Kush Himalayas. Released on Monday, the Kathmandu-based International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development’s (ICIMOD) “Hindu Kush Himalaya Assessment” reveals that more than 35 per cent of the glaciers in the region could retreat by 2100, even if the global temperature rise is capped at 1.5º C. This could destabilise the hydrology of large parts of South Asia, China and Myanmar.
Regions in higher altitudes tend to warm faster than low-lying lands. So, a global temperature increase of 1.5ºC could mean at least a 1.8ºC temperature rise in the Hindu Kush Himalayas, the ICIMOD study warns. This will have a major bearing on the ice-fields, which are the largest repository of permafrost outside the polar regions. The region’s snow is the source of 10 major river systems — including the Ganga, Indus, Brahmaputra and Mekong — in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China and Myanmar. Large-scale warming could drastically alter the river flows in these countries. The receding glaciers could cause a deluge in the rivers during the monsoon while the flows are likely to plummet during the dry seasons, with serious implications for irrigation, hydropower and ecosystem services.
Climate scientists have tried to link the Subcontinent’s erratic monsoons over the past 10 years — days of intense rainfall combined with drought-like conditions — to global warming. They have, however, stopped short of identifying the exact causes of these extreme weather events. The ICIMOD study offers clues that the receding glaciers might be the reason for the changing monsoon. “The number of intense precipitation days and intensity of extreme precipitation have increased overall in the last five decades. If these trends persist, the frequency and magnitude of water-induced hazards in the (Hindu Kush Himalaya) region will increase,” it says. This is a significant conclusion given that developments in the Himalayas are known to have a spin-off on the monsoon in the Subcontinent. The ICIMOD researchers point out that more studies are required to firm up the links between extreme weather events in the higher reaches of the Subcontinent and the erratic weather in the plains. For this, they advocate more data sharing between the countries that share the Hindu Kush Himalayas. Even more salient is their message that political differences between these countries should not come in the way of joint efforts to build resilience of vulnerable communities and shore up the region’s water security. Such cooperation must go alongside meeting the Paris Climate Change Pact’s goals.

          Seattle's Unusually Frigid Temperatures And Heavy Snowfall Stretch Into Next Week       Cache   Translate Page      

A powerful winter storm in the Pacific Northwest is taking the region by surprise, with bitter temperatures and extensive snowfall prompting a state of emergency in Washington State.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared the emergency on Friday, saying residents should limit time outside and stay off the roads.

"Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years," Inslee said in a statement.

More than 200 flights at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport were cancelled on Friday, and more than 300 were delayed according to the flight tracking website, FlightAware.

As of Saturday morning, more than 7 inches of snow had fallen at Sea-Tac airport. It's an occurrence Meteorologist Marc Chenard of the Weather Prediction Center deemed significant.

"It does happen in Seattle, typically more in December and January," Chenard said. "Even with that, it's an event that happens once a year, once every couple of years."

Winter storm warnings are in effect for many western states, from Northern California to Northwest Montana, according to the National Weather Service.

"We have a very strong mid and upper level low pressure system that centered off the Pacific Northwest coast that's bringing in colder conditions than what we would typically see," Chenard said.

The snow in the Seattle area is expected to wind down by Saturday afternoon, however, another system is expected to bring some lighter accumulations on Sunday.

"There are more systems coming off the pacific that will have the potential to bring snow," Chenard said. "So it's not going to be a continuous snow but there are chances of snow in the Seattle area off and on pretty much right through the week."

Chilly temperatures are also expected to stretch into next week, meaning the snow will most likely stick around.

Drivers are being urged to stay off the roads and Washington's Department of Transportation is warning of extremely long travel times due to snow.

Some Washington state residents who are more accustomed to winter rain are taking precautions due to the different weather. On Friday, many locals tweeted photos of empty grocery store shelves.

One person is reported to have died from the freezing temperatures. A 59-year-old man, who may have been homeless, was found at a light-rail station sometime before 5 a.m. Thursday. He is thought to have died from the exposure, according to the Seattle Times.

The Seattle Times reports that homeless service providers are bracing for the coming week of low temperatures and snowfall by opening more shelters to accommodate those who need a place to stay out of the cold.

I don't think All Weather is the most efficient thing to hold for the long term. Mainly because it devotes 25% of the risk budget to fight inflation - yet unexpected inflation has not been a problem for almost 40 years. To me, the smarter thing to do is to weight the long term likelihood of each "risk quadrant" to determine your asset allocation. In which case, sure, Gold and TIPS will have a role, but not 25%.



To put it another way, if you live in Florida, should your closet be 25% winter clothing?


Isn't the point of the all weather portfolio to give acceptable results no matter the economic conditions. So you don't have to make any judgement on how likely inflation is. That is its not supposed to be the most efficient thing its supposed to protect you from uncertainty.



It occurred to me that combining your strategy at say the 15-20% of assets as you planned with a all weather could make a kind of sense. Things go well and you do very well in your leveraged portfolio. Things go poorly and the all weather is likely to give you an acceptable portfolio no matter what caused problems.

          обзор для Европы: Rain and gales north - Warm southern Spain, февр 10 - 07:45      Cache   Translate Page      

Sunday Low pressure moves across north-central Europe, bringing heavy rain and strong winds, local gales or severe gales for a time for France, Germany and the Low Countries. Clusters of heavy showers follow from the west. A cold front associated with this system extends southwest across France into northern Spain, producing cool and showery conditions with hill snow. Meanwhile, southern Spain and Portugal stays dry and warm, topping 20C on eastern Spanish costas. Heavy snow moves into the western Alps, and patchy rain reaches northwest Italy, but much of the Mediterranean stays dry. Lots of sunshine for Greece and areas around the Black Sea. Rain moves into Poland and the Czech Republic later. Scandinavia lies beneath a broad area of low pressure, with snow showers in places. Rain and 5C for southern Sweden, later may turn to snow. The far north stays very cold, sub-zero by day.

Monday High pressure builds across western Europe, maintaining fair weather for much of Spain and Portugal. Warm in the south, reaching 20C. Fairly mild too for France, up to 14C in the southwest, but colder toward the Alps. Another substantial snowfall is likely across the north and western Alps from Sunday night into Monday daytime, as fronts come down from the northwest. Showers for Italy, and some more organised rain or mountain snow for the Balkans as low pressure moves southeastwards. Greece and the Black Sea stays dry, but winds will freshen. Showery across east-central Europe, with snow over mountains. Blustery west to northwesterlies for Denmark, Germany and Poland, with low pressure centred over the southern Baltic. On the northern side of this depression, persistent snow is likely for south-east Sweden and southern Finland. Snow showers for the west/northwest coast of Norway. Dry for southern Norway and much of Sweden.

          Conor McGregor Heaps Praise on Anderson Silva, Blasts Kelvin Gastelum      Cache   Translate Page      

Conor McGregor Post-Mayweather Fight

Conor McGregor may not be able to step foot into the Octagon and compete until sometime after April, but that isn't keeping him from weighing in on the fights that are going on. He took to Twitter on Saturday night to heap praise on former middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva, while simultaneously blasting Kelvin Gastelum for parading around UFC 234 with the middleweight title belt.

Silva's bout with rising star Israel Adesanya was elevated to main event status at UFC 234 after middleweight champion Robert Whittaker was forced to withdraw from his fight with Gastelum because of a medical emergency. Whittaker was diagnosed with an internal hernia and underwent same-day surgery to correct it, as well as a collapsed bowel.

Adesanya walked away the winner in a changing-of-the-guard sort of bout with Silva, though the former middleweight champion gave a solid accounting of himself at 43 years of age. McGregor took note, praising Silva, while again tipping his hat to the idea of one day stepping into the cage with him.

"Anderson is one crafty, craft martial artist," McGregor wrote. "You only develop these methods through years of hard fought experience. Phenomenal performance. The crafty veteran. Big respect always. It would be an honor!"

https://twitter.com/TheNotoriousMMA/status/1094465862822703105

The Irishman wasn't so kind to Gastelum, who repeatedly sent his well wishes to Whittaker, but also grabbed a UFC championship belt and paraded it around the arena in Melbourne, doing interviews with it and claiming that he was the rightful UFC middleweight champion; a claim that UFC officials told MMAWeekly.com is untrue.

TRENDING > Robert Whittaker Emerges from Emergency Dual Surgery

"Why is that worm holding the 185-pound belt? There are worms crawling on his skin!" McGregor tweeted, making note of Gastelum admitting in interviews that he had developed a staph infection earlier in the week.

"It was absolutely ludicrous to even consider allowing him to compete. Let alone, now walk around the arena shaking our fans' hands. Someone sort this this instant. And sterilize that belt. Immediately."

          Europe: Rain and gales north - Warm southern Spain, 10 fév - 05:44      Cache   Translate Page      

Sunday Low pressure moves across north-central Europe, bringing heavy rain and strong winds, local gales or severe gales for a time for France, Germany and the Low Countries. Clusters of heavy showers follow from the west. A cold front associated with this system extends southwest across France into northern Spain, producing cool and showery conditions with hill snow. Meanwhile, southern Spain and Portugal stays dry and warm, topping 20C on eastern Spanish costas. Heavy snow moves into the western Alps, and patchy rain reaches northwest Italy, but much of the Mediterranean stays dry. Lots of sunshine for Greece and areas around the Black Sea. Rain moves into Poland and the Czech Republic later. Scandinavia lies beneath a broad area of low pressure, with snow showers in places. Rain and 5C for southern Sweden, later may turn to snow. The far north stays very cold, sub-zero by day.

Monday High pressure builds across western Europe, maintaining fair weather for much of Spain and Portugal. Warm in the south, reaching 20C. Fairly mild too for France, up to 14C in the southwest, but colder toward the Alps. Another substantial snowfall is likely across the north and western Alps from Sunday night into Monday daytime, as fronts come down from the northwest. Showers for Italy, and some more organised rain or mountain snow for the Balkans as low pressure moves southeastwards. Greece and the Black Sea stays dry, but winds will freshen. Showery across east-central Europe, with snow over mountains. Blustery west to northwesterlies for Denmark, Germany and Poland, with low pressure centred over the southern Baltic. On the northern side of this depression, persistent snow is likely for south-east Sweden and southern Finland. Snow showers for the west/northwest coast of Norway. Dry for southern Norway and much of Sweden.

The story covers the creation of these people and more and all their long journeys and travails from their arrival to the realms of the day. The Andanuth is generously sprinkled with stories and tales of gods and men, dwarves and goblins, war and peace. You'll not wonder what happened before...you'll know.

There are over 50 gods outlined for play, a dozen peoples including all your favorites (dwarves, elves, men, halflings, gnomes, orcs, goblins, giants, trolls, dragons and more). Each of 30 plus realms are intimately detailed with history, government, economy, military, present rulers and other specific information. Beyond that we have terrain that is detailed as well.

“Chesapeake Shores” Part of the Legacy of the Network’s Top 5 Series Sundays

PASADENA, CA – February 9, 2019 – Hallmark Channel announces it has renewed the network’s hit, original series “Chesapeake Shores” for a fourth season. Airing on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT, “Chesapeake Shores” was one of Hallmark Channel’s most-watched original series and joins the network’s other primetime scripted shows as a top five-rated series on Sunday nights. Production on six episodes for season four is scheduled to commence this year for a season four premiere Summer 2019. The announcement was made today as part of Crown Media Family Networks’ bi-annual Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour. “Viewers have found a home in their hearts for ‘Chesapeake Shores’ and have consistently made it a top performing show year-after-year,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks.

“We look forward to further exploring the show’s heartfelt and compelling storylines as characters navigate the complexities of life and love,” Vicary concluded. Based on the novels of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods, the series stars Jesse Metcalfe (“Dallas”), Meghan Ory (“Once Upon a Time”), Golden Globe® nominee Treat Williams (“Everwood,” Hair ), Academy Award® nominee Diane Ladd ( Wild a t Heart ), Barbara Niven (“Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove”), Laci J. Mailey (“Falling Skies”), Emilie Ullerup (“Sanctuary”), Brendan Penny (“Motive”) and Andrew Francis (“Final Destination 3”). The multi-generational family drama “Chesapeake Shores” follows Abby O’Brien (Ory), a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to two daughters, as she adjusts to life back in her hometown of Chesapeake Shores.

Abby now balances a budding relationship with her former high school sweetheart, Trace (Metcalfe), working for a firm that does business with her uncompromising father Mick (Williams) and raising her children. Returning to her hometown means engaging in the lives of her siblings: Jess (Mailey) a free-spirit trying to succeed as a bed and breakfast owner; Bree (Ullerup), a playwright who buys a bookstore in Chesapeake Shores after moving back home from Chicago; Kevin (Penny), a soldier adjusting to civilian life and new romance; and Connor (Francis), a new lawyer establishing his professional career. Having returned to Chesapeake Shores shortly after Abby, the O’Brien’s once-estranged mother Megan (Niven) strives to reestablish relationships with Abby and her siblings, though the O’Brien clan primarily looks to its wise grandmother Nell (Ladd) for guidance.

“Chesapeake Shores” is a Daniel L. Paulson Production. Dan Paulson, Michael Berns, Nancey Silvers and Sherryl Woods are executive producers. Matt Drake serves as producer.

          Republican Mike Hill Goes Door To Door For Votes      Cache   Translate Page      
In the race for the Florida House District 1, it’s come down to a contest between Democrat Vikki Garrett and Republican Mike Hill. Just a few weeks out from the Nov. 6 General Election, the candidates are working to drum up support. Both were out on the campaign trail this past Saturday. WUWF caught up with Hill as he was canvassing voters in the Cantonment area. “Takes care of her yard, she loves plants,” said Hill just before a friendly knock on the door of 73-year-old Doris Hawkins. Hill waits a bit for her to answer. But, on this sunny, pleasant day, it appears Mrs. Hawkins is not home, so the Republican candidate leaves a note and some of his campaign literature. He explains, “On days like this, when the weather is so beautiful it’s not unusual to find a lot of people not at home because they’re out enjoying the weather.” Hill spent a few hours knocking on the doors of potential voters in a neighborhood off West Roberts Road in north Escambia County. He’s being guided by the

The subzero weather hardly predicts  short wait for Spring, as the groundhog did last week.  There is a lot of sports to heat up your February, so there's that. 

March Madness is very closer, so the NCAA top 10 rankings for men's basketball become much more interesting.  Saturday's first unveiling of the top 16 seeds by the NCAA tournament selection committee provided a glimpse into the future. But the day's game slate also served as a reminder that there's still plenty of basketball to be played in the next five weeks up until Selection Sunday. So, thanks NCAA, for March's ratings today. 


In a battle between two forecasted No. 1 seeds, Duke once again out-dueled Virginia. The Blue Devils started the day as the top overall seed, per the committee's assessment, and ended the day with an even stronger profile. The Cavaliers, meanwhile, only suffered their second loss of the season, but this one was a much more convincing loss and on their home court.

Villanova was perhaps the most notable snub on the selection committee's list of top four seeds in each NCAA tourney region, and the Wildcats had an opportunity to beat a No. 3-seeded Marquette team on the road. Instead, they lost their first game in Big East play and the Golden Eagles got a statement win to bolster their already impressive résumé behind Markus Howard's 38 points. More than that, it was a statement win that punctuated the progress of the Steve Wojciechowski era in Milwaukee.  



In the Coaches' Poll, the top ten teams are currently:
1.  Tennessee  20-1
2.  DukeDuke  19-2
3.  Virginia  20-1
4.  Gonzaga  21-2
5.  Kentucky  18-3
6.  Nevada  21-1
7.  Michigan  20-2
8.  North Carolina  17-4
9.  Marquette  19-3
10.  Virginia Tech 18-3

Meanwhile, in Daytona Beach, all is gearing up for the weeklong festival of racing preceeding the Daytona 500.  More on that next week. 

This is weekend two of five in the Rugby Six Nations Tournament.  Today England takes on France at the Twickenham Stadium.  Saturday, Wales already bested Italy at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, as the Etruscans lost 26-15.  Meanwhile, Ireland beat Scotland at Murrayfield, 22-13.  Wales currently sits, undefeated, atop the rankings.
