          Building the Casper homepage      Cache   Translate Page      

In September, I decided that it was time to take a break from client work. I would focus 100% of my time on my freelancing app, Cushion, and hopefully reach a point where I could live off its income.

One week later, however, I received an email from Gabe Flateman, CTO and co-founder of Casper. If you live in New York, you’re probably well aware of Casper because their subway ads are everywhere. In short, Casper is a mattress startup with emphasis on quality, affordability, and customer support.

Typically, I would’ve stuck to the plan of going clientless, but Casper is an enticing client—I simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity to at least chat. If anything, this would allow me to work full-time on Cushion for even longer.

I met with Gabe and he filled me in on their plan to start offering pillows and sheets along with their signature mattress (not my typical client). To announce their new products, they needed a fancy new homepage.

I’ve worked on a few animated websites in the past, and that’s exactly how Gabe found me. These websites are fun because they give me the chance to experiment. I also do my best work under the pressure of their challenges and countless unknowns, like whether the website is even possible.

“Dream Sandwich” sketch from Alex Malkin, Digital Experience Director at Red Antler

Gabe told me about their “Dream Sandwich” concept, designed by the creative studio, JaegerSloan. The bed would separate in mid-air and each product would float up the page as the user scrolls. Then, the products would float back down and land as a complete bed.

We discussed possible approaches, like scrubbing through a video or swapping out still images. Video is easy, but sacrifices quality and control. Stills are more flexible and higher quality, but at the cost of file size. Regardless of the direction we took, it was clear that this would be a real challenge.

I had experience animating with still images from my work on the FiftyThree Pencil page, where a hand holding a Pencil rotates as the user scrolls. That, however, was only a small section of the page using only a dozen images. The Casper website, on the other hand, would potentially be hundreds of hi-res images spanning the entire window.

FiftyThree Pencil website

The countless challenges raced through my mind as Gabe and I chatted—file size, performance, file size, image quality, file size, deadline. I could’ve walked away, but after brainstorming and talking through all the obstacles, I felt invested in the website—I wanted to be the one to make this special.

I accepted the gig.

I need to constantly remind myself of how fortunate I am to attract this caliber of client, and more importantly, that building websites even counts as a profession—let alone a valuable one. At any time, tides could shift and the industry could take a nosedive. It sounds far-fetched, but I was once a skilled Flash developer.

Gabe sent me a CodePen prototype they made for scrubbing a video with the scrollbar. CodePen and other web-based IDEs were completely foreign to me, so this was a first. I forked Casper’s prototype and added friction to make the scrubbing smoother. I was blown away by how easy it was to set up and share iterations. So much, in fact, that I decided to use it for the rest of the project.

Iterations in CodePen

These websites tend to go through dozens of iterations, so CodePen was the perfect tool for me to quickly make changes and get instant feedback from Casper. Whenever we decided to go in a different direction, I would simply fork the latest prototype and move on. This left me with shareable save points that I could easily link to.

After considering all of the potential issues with video, like aspect ratio and browser compatibility, we decided to ditch that approach. This was definitely for the best because if we were to discover a deal-breaker after shooting the video, we would be in a really sticky situation. By using still images, we would at least have some outs if anything went south.

The Gazelle camera crane photographing the Casper mattress

JaegerSloan was smart and shot each product individually—this gave us more control over scaling and positioning. They used a Gazelle camera crane on a green screen, which provided us with a smooth series of angles that we could select from. If I learned anything throughout this project, it’s that Casper does not mess around when it comes to big ideas.

With a tight deadline and no readily available assets, I had to make the most of my time. While JaegerSloan worked on touching up the images, I started coding a prototype using colored blocks as placeholders. This allowed me to focus on the timing, positioning, and feel of the animation before even thinking about actual images.

A prototype using colored blocks as placeholders

A few days later, JaegerSloan provided us with draft images for picking which frames we would need for the final animation. Because of the tight deadline, we didn’t have the luxury of touching up every single image from the photoshoot. And because of the concern with file size, we needed to know the frame rate that would require the fewest number of images while still feeling smooth.

With the FiftyThree page, I was able to keep it simple by loading a dozen images individually. With Casper, however, I’m dealing with hundreds of images, so the number of requests became a big concern as well.

Instead of loading images one-by-one, we needed to use sprite sheets—combining every frame of a product as one image. If we have 5 products on the page, the browser would only need to load 5 images with 100 frames versus 500 single-frame images. The file size would also be much lower because the images within the sprite sheet could share colors.

A sprite sheet of Casper sheets

I wrote a script that takes a folder of images, compiles them into a sprite sheet, and optimizes the sheet to save even more on file size. The result is a single image and a CSS file of the background positions of the frames within the sprite sheet. In the Javscript, I simply change the class name of an element to display the correct frame.

The code I used to control the positioning and timing of the animation is step-based, similar to the system I wrote for Dropbox’s Carousel website. Each step has a duration and an array of items to animate. And each item has start/end values for each property (x, y, etc). The current step is detected based on the scroll position. The items then animate based on the scroll position within the current step. Everything is based on relative percentages, so if a specific step needs to be shortened or lengthened, I can increase the duration of that step and the animation will adjust itself.

A prototype using draft images

Now that we were using draft images instead of colored blocks, I was able to get a much better sense of the animation’s feel. It was exciting to see everything coming together—even as a draft. I tweaked the timing and positioning to smooth out the rough spots and shared the new prototype with Casper.

When we received the final images from JaegerSloan, it felt like Christmas. I had been working with the draft images for so long that I forgot that they were drafts—my brain learned to ignore their rough edges and color. Once I swapped out the drafts for the retouched images, everything instantly felt like a real webpage—no longer a prototype.

A prototype using final images

While I worked on the website, the Casper QA team performed user tests with each major iteration I sent them, rather than launching and hoping for the best. With the final images in place, they were able to discover a few difficult truths.

  • Users weren’t connecting with the room
  • Users didn’t realize that Casper was announcing pillows and sheets
  • Users thought Casper was introducing pajamas

With two weeks remaining before launch, these results were hard to swallow. We had to make some big changes, but fortunately, not all was lost. To make the room feel more relatable, Casper brought back the hero image with one of their lifestyle photos. This provided a more realistic image of a bedroom with more emphasis on the announcement copy. Instead of distracting the user with an animation right off-the-bat, the still image would give them time to digest the copy and realize that Casper now has sheets and pillows.

The rest of the page, including the animation, was more up-in-the-air at this point. Casper’s Director of Design, Huy Vu, and Senior Designer, Jarrod Barretto, focused on a new design. It would reuse the elements of the animation, but ditch the idea of the step-based animation.

A sketch of the new direction

After the hero, the user would see the separated “Dream Sandwich” with buttons linking to each product. They would then scroll through the individual products before hitting the rest of the page. As the products move up the page, they would “rotate” with the scroll to create the illusion of 3D perspective.

I started on the new prototype and was blown away by how much code I was able to remove. I treated each section of the page as a self-contained block with its own scroll percentage. The items would move up the page like normal HTML elements, but the “rotation” would be determined by their independent position on the page. This approach cut the code to roughly 30 lines, down from over 600.

The final iteration

The final design immediately felt more like a webpage than any of the previous iterations, and I find the design much more effective than a complex animation—it doesn’t hijack the scroll or move elements against the grain of the page. If the user scrolls quickly from top to bottom, they might not even notice the rotating products, but once they do, it will wow them even more.

I spent the last week before launch moving the code from Codepen into Casper’s repo. Joseph Cortwabi, one of Casper’s front-end engineers, worked closely with Jarrod to fine-tune the hero across screen resolutions and orientations while Kei Sato, another front-end engineer, helped with the shop modules at the bottom of the page.

In the final hours, Betty Liao, Casper’s Digital Project Manager, tested a gnarly iOS7 bug for me while I attempted to blindly fix it (without the device). A few stressful minutes later, I merged my final pull request and called it a night. Casper launched the next day.

In the end, I’m thrilled with how everything turned out. The homepage fits that perfect balance between subtle and special without going overboard with animations. I had a blast working with the team and witnessing them build the rest of the website around my small contribution. I look forward to watching Casper grow, and I hope to hear from them again when they inevitably launch pajamas.

          Building the Pencil Page with FiftyThree      Cache   Translate Page      

FiftyThree has always been an inspiration of mine—their dedication to craft is admirable. When they asked me to work with them on the product page for their first piece of hardware, Pencil, I jumped at the opportunity.

The project started out with a meeting at the FiftyThree office—a beautiful loft in Tribeca. KJ Chun walked me through the design he prepared for the page and Ian Curry showed me a few interaction prototypes for the fancier sections. I wore the serious professional face, but on the inside, I felt like a kid on Christmas Eve, and Santa was giving me a sneak peek at all my presents.

The Pencil product page was my first foray into scrolling effects—no pressure. I’ve never been a fan of scrolling effects, mainly because most implementations hijack the scrollbar. With that in mind, I coded it in a way that would maintain the integrity of the scroll, while still surprising the viewer. I wanted the parts to reveal themselves as if you could feel them sliding out. The animation works when resizing the window as well, so if you drag from the bottom, you can actually pull the pencil apart.

The “Inspired Form” section was originally designed to rotate the pencil with the horizontal tracking of the cursor, but it felt unnatural. If someone were to scroll the entirety of the page, they might miss it, as it required them to stop and move their cursor perpendicular to the scroll. As an alternative, I experimented with scrolling to rotate the pencil, so everyone would discover it. The pencil starts by facing left and rotates a full 180 degrees, exposing the front of the pencil half-way through. Luckily, this accomplished the natural feel I’m always aiming for in my work.

The page is fully responsive—even the scrolling effects. The FiftyThree team was open to suggestions on how to reflow the content across each breakpoint. I took a few cues from their existing product pages for consistency, but also tried a couple new directions of my own.

After a long week, I handed the code off to Tara Feener and Scott Olson, who prepared it for production. Not knowing when it would launch, I continued with my other work, but kept an eye on the site. A few Twitter mentions started to roll in and I knew it was live. I couldn’t be happier with the end result, as well as the response. It was an absolute privilege working with the FiftyThree team and tagging along for a small part of their adventure.

          These 3D-printed homes can be built for less than $4,000 in just 24 hours      Cache   Translate Page      

New Story printable homes 7

  • Last March, the 3D printing company Icon produced a 350-square-foot tiny home that cost $10,000 and took just 48 hours hours to build.
  • The company was confident that it could print a larger structure in just 24 hours for even less — around $4,000 — since the printer wasn't running at full speed. 
  • A year after its prototype was released, Icon is now selling an upgraded version of its 3D printer.

Printable homes represent the latest wave in construction, but they're not always cheap or easy to build.

In March, New Story, a housing nonprofit based in San Francisco, and Icon, a construction-technology company that designs 3D printers, defied these stereotypes by producing a $10,000 tiny home in just 48 hours.

Icon called the structure "the first permitted, 3D-printed home in America."

At 350 square feet, the house was far cheaper than the average tiny home, which has a price tag hovering at around $25,000, but can often reach six figures. Before using 3D-printing technology, it took New Story eight months to build 100 homes, each costing about $6,000.

While the prototype was being developed, Icon's printer, known as the Vulcan, was running at only 25% speed. That gave the companies confidence that they could build a 600- to 800-square-foot home in just 24 hours for $4,000 or less.

When it comes to producing an average-sized home — around 2,000 square feet — the savings aren't quite as stark. A year after releasing its $10,000 prototype in Austin, Texas, Icon told the Wall Street Journal that printing a 2,000-square-foot home would cost around $20,000.  

More remarkable is the fact that the company's upgraded printer, the Vulcan II, is now available for purchase, and could soon be used to produce affordable homes in places like Austin and Latin America. 

Icon's first 3D model offers a glimpse of what the machine could produce in the future. Take a look. 

SEE ALSO: This 24-year-old uses a 3D printer to make prosthetic limbs for people in the world's poorest countries

The Vulcan II can produce a home seamlessly onsite, without having to piece together individual units.

The printer churns out layers of cement, which amass to form the walls of the home. Non-printed fixtures like doors and windows are installed later. 

The Vulcan II is capable of producing walls that are up to eight-and-a-half feet tall and up to 28 feet wide.



The printer is designed to be mobile and weighs about 3,800 pounds.

The Vulcan II is operated by a tablet, which means only a few workers are required to produce a 3D home. 



It's also made to withstand rural weather conditions, meaning it could operate during a power shortage or without access to potable water.

The home's cement mixture is also able to withstand extreme weather conditions.

          Michigan researchers to install data-tracking sensors on Mackinac Bridge      Cache   Translate Page      
Mackinac Bridge in Michigan; bridge monitoring sensors

Image: Justin Billau [CC BY-SA 2.0] via Wikimedia Commons

Researchers in the state of Michigan are planning to install up to 2,000 infrastructure sensors on the Mackinac Bridge in order to explore the logistics of a large-scale deployment and provide useful monitoring data to the Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA). 

 

According to a press release from the MBA, the first 20 prototype infrastructure sensors were installed a few years ago on the bridge and were powered solely by vibrations from traffic. These devices have proven their durability and performed as intended. Researchers from Michigan State University (MSU) and Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) are ready to roll out the next phase of testing.

 

Beginning in 2016, MSU and WUSTL researchers started deploying prototype sensors beneath the bridge as part of a demonstration project sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The Mackinac Bridge provided a high-profile testing ground for these self-powered sensors. Since then, the new and improved versions of the self-powered sensors have been developed as a part of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Cyber-physical Systems program and have been successfully deployed on the bridge.

 

The team of researchers view the sensing technology as a way to transform the process of bridge preservation and management, and to improve the serviceability of bridges. The aim of the large-scale deployment is to show that the system can autonomously monitor loading experienced on the bridge, and that the sensors can collect information without too much human intervention and at a lower cost.

 

Several of the sensors' features make them attractive to infrastructure managers. Because they have no external power source, the sensors eliminate the issue of requiring battery changes or wiring to power sources. They also do not need wires to access the data they collect, as staff can access that information wirelessly. 

 

MBA staff will assist with installation of the additional sensors, offering both equipment and access to the bridge. The MBA will retain ownership of the data gathered by the sensors, with WUSTL providing the sensor prototypes and MSU providing tools to analyze and interpret that data for bridge staff to use in guiding engineering and maintenance decisions. The research team can use the data for research publication with approval from the MBA. The team plans to start installation of the additional and improved sensors this summer.

          15 Top Prototyping Tools Go Head-to-Head      Cache   Translate Page      

@SitePointTeam wrote:

Originally published at: https://www.sitepoint.com/invision-marvel-justinmind-prototyping-tools-compared/

As the number and variety of prototyping tools continues to grow, it’s becoming harder and harder to figure out which tools meet what needs, and who they’re suitable for. Since we first wrote this article back in 2015, countless design apps have dominated (and changed) the prototyping space.

Stakeholder feedback and user testing is now taking a far greater role in UI design and this new generation of tools aims to connect these two previously separate stages of the design process. Clients want to be involved, and email isn’t cutting it anymore. Some apps like UXPin are also taking care of the wireframing stages, whereas others like InVision App are bridging the gap between designer and developer by offering design handoff tools.

Plus, there’s now a clear divide between desktop tools with cloud sharing (Adobe XD, Axure, Balsamiq, Sketch+InVision) and collaborative online tools (Figma, UXPin, Fluid UI, Proto.io).

Many of these tools appear to be converging on a feature set that defines the role of the modern user experience designer. TL;DR—here’s a swift comparison of prototyping tools.

Adobe XD

Adobe may have been caught napping during the rise of Sketch, but they’re rapidly making up for it with Adobe XD. Launched in March 2016, and still in beta as of July 2017, it’s the latest addition to Adobe’s Creative Cloud Suite. While you can prototype interactions in Sketch with the help of the Craft Plugin, Adobe XD impressively offers these tools right out of the box, so designers are already comparing Adobe XD to Sketch like longtime rivals.

It’s definitely worth a look if you’re interested in a tool that covers all your bases (low-fidelity prototyping, high-fidelity prototyping, user flows, sharing and feedback) in a single app.

Strengths

  • Available for macOS and Windows
<li>Everything you need in a single app</li>

Weaknesses

  • Still in beta (although pleasantly mature as a design app)
<li>Plugin workflow non-existent, you’re locked into the Adobe ecosystem</li>

InVision App (with Sketch and Craft)

InVision App is the largest and most successful design collaboration tool currently on the market, the primary go-to tool for serious designers and enterprise teams alike. With tools like whiteboard collaboration, dynamic prototyping, comments, device preview, video calling, user testing, version control and design handoff, InVision is already a colossal force in the prototyping space, but when you factor in its Sketch and Photoshop integrations, it becomes an all-in-one design suite, especially when you throw in Craft, the Sketch/Photoshop Plugin that brings a lot of that functionality directly into your design app of choice.

Strengths

  • Powerful, mature platform
<li>Fully-integrated with Sketch for high-fidelity design</li>


<li>Constantly being updated with new features</li>

Weaknesses

  • Feature-set can be a little overwhelming at first
<li>Sketch is only available for macOS users only (but you <em>can</em> pair InVision with Photoshop on Windows, although Photoshop isn’t strictly a UI design tool)</li>

Marvel App

A very strong favourite for those looking for simpler, friendlier alternatives to InVision App. Marvel App has excelled at creating a prototyping tool that works for both advanced UX designers and those simply looking to communicate high and low fidelity concepts. Plus, while they champion working with Sketch, they also offer component libraries to allow for a complete online workflow in Marvel. Marvel App also recently integrated fan-favourite POP, which allows designers to transform their pen/paper ideas into iPhone and Android apps.

Strengths

  • Great support for transitions for additional realism
<li>Friendlier for non-designers, especially when giving feedback</li>

Weaknesses

  • Web based only
<li>No offline designing</li>

UXPin

UXPin is the most complete online solution for UX designers in terms of their offering. While you can import from Sketch and Photoshop, you can also design complex and responsive interfaces with UXPin’s built-in libraries, making UXPin something of a wireframing tool as well. With their design systems features, UXPin becomes one of the most complex tools in terms of automated documentation, designer/developer handoffs and collaborative features.

Strengths

  • Responsive design with breakpoints
<li>Powerful animations (<em>not just linking screens</em>)</li>


<li>Complete design collaboration and handoff solution</li>

Weaknesses

  • A little pricey versus the competition at $49/user/month
<li>Additional features increase the complexity of use</li>

Webflow

Webflow is a visual tool for designing responsive websites that also exports clean code—it removes the headache of going from design to published on the web. Competing as much with WordPress as it does with Sketch App, Webflow lets you design fully functional responsive websites incorporating back-end (API) data and can automatically deploy to fully scalable, worry-free hosting with a single click of a button. It’s basically Adobe Dreamweaver for the modern-day designer who cares about clean code and mobile-friendly web design.

Strengths

  • Real data can be included (from APIs/JSON/etc)
<li>Creates high-quality, reusable code</li>


<li>Responsive websites can be designed and deployed with ease</li>

Weaknesses

  • Not useful for designing native mobile apps
<li>Requires some knowledge of HTML/CSS to be at its most effective</li>

Figma

A somewhat recent addition to the prototyping space, Figma boasts the most mesmerising real-time design collaboration features of any prototyping tool while modelling its feature-set on many of the intuitive design tools of Sketch and Adobe XD (such as symbols and device preview), along with a bunch of tools usually reserved for the online crowd (such as versioning and design handoff). Version 2.0, launched in July 2017, includes a prototyping mode with hotspots and developer handoffs to further streamline the design workflow. It works in the browser, on macOS, and on WIndows, although it sometimes can be slow.

Strengths

  • Real-time collaborative design features are second-to-none
<li>Fully-featured, ideal for designers from start to finish</li>

Weaknesses

  • Figma can can be laggy at time, especially with real-time collaboration

          The ATLAS EventIndex and its evolution towards Run 3      Cache   Translate Page      
The ATLAS experiment produced so far hundreds of petabytes of data and expects to have one order of magnitude more in the future. This data are spread among hundreds of computing Grid sites around the world. The EventIndex is the complete catalogue of all ATLAS events, real and simulated, keeping the references to all permanent files that contain a given event in any processing stage. It provides the means to select and access event data in the ATLAS distributed storage system, and provides support for completeness and consistency checks and trigger and offline selection overlap studies. The EventIndex employs various data handling technologies like Hadoop and Oracle databases, and is integrated with other systems of the ATLAS distributed computing infrastructure, including those for data, metadata, and production management. The project is in operation since the start of LHC Run 2 in 2015, and is in permanent development in order to fit the production and analysis demands and follow technology evolutions. The main data store in Hadoop, based on MapFiles and HBase, has worked well during Run 2 but new solutions are explored for the future. This paper reports on the current system performance and on the studies of a new data storage prototype that can carry the EventIndex through Run 3.

          At SXSW, New Dutch Wave Presents an Optimistic View of the Future      Cache   Translate Page      

For the third year in a row, a selection of top Dutch designers are representing the Netherlands at SXSW in Austin. New Dutch Wave brings together six cross-disciplinary innovators who are thinking through some of the world's biggest issues and presenting new ways forward. They all seem to ask the question: "If not now then when?" The selected designers (including our very own Dave Hakkens) were chosen based on the following criteria: impact, innovation, experiment, and originality. Some, like Hakkens, will be expanding on existing projects, while others will debut new work at SXSW. Read on to find out more about three of the projects.

Urban Safety Kit by Bas Timmer

Bas Timmer was inspired to create the Sheltersuit—a coat that doubles as a sleeping bag—after his friend's father was turned away from a maxed-out shelter and ended up dying of hypothermia on the streets. He used sleeping bags gathered from the aftermath of music festivals to create the first samples and launched Sheltersuit in 2014. Since then, Timmer has distributed 5,100 coats to refugees and homeless people around the world and picked up the Dutch Design Award in 2017 and the German Design Award in 2018.

In addition to being wind and water-proof, the Sheltersuit is insulated and comes with a hood, an integrated scarf, and large pockets. The bottom portion zips on and off to give the wearer mobility and a seamless transition between the coat's two functions. The suit also comes with a backpack that can be used to store the coat/sleeping bag as needed.

At SXSW, Timmer is introducing the latest evolution of his project: an Urban Safety Kit comprising the tools one would need to ensure their safety on the street: access to medical help, protection from violence, and connectivity. With support from various industry and research partners, Timmer has developed a prototype that embeds smart technology to tackle these issues. He's added sensors that pick up heart rate and body temperature and emit alarms if hypothermia is detected, as well as a proximity alert sensor that will react if a person is robbed, or worse. Timmer also integrated solar panels into his latest design which will allow wearers to charge their devices and remain connected to society.

Precious Plastic by Dave Hakkens

You're probably already familiar with Dave Hakkens' long-term project Precious Plastics. A few years ago the Dutch designer and Core77 contributor decided to take a grass-roots approach to the complicated process of large-scale recycling and developed simplified, DIY versions of industrial recycling machines that anyone could replicate. Maker spaces, workshops, and designers around the world have used the open-source instructions to build their own tools, recycle plastic and manufacture new plastic products on their own.

Fundamentally a project about social engagement, Hakkens continues his movement at SXSW in a workshop developed alongside Andre Amaro. Together with 25 students from Texas University, they will pick up plastic waste around Austin's Waller Creek and immediately turn it into various one-of-a-kind products that will be available for sale.

KozieWe and KozieMe by Tom Kortbeek and Roos Meerman

The KozieWe is an interactive wall tapestry that reacts to motion and allows users to generate their own musical compositions. When you touch the wall, you'll hear an instrument playing. If another person starts interacting with it, another instrument will be heard, and so on. Tapping into research that shows a link between music, sound, and the recovery of memory, KozieWe has been used to help dementia patients living at home and in care facilities. The sounds can be personalized to better suit individuals. For example, a soundtrack of forest sounds might help a nature lover reconnect with those memories.

Whereas the KozieWe was designed to foster connections between multiple people, Kortbeek and Meerman's latest design, the KozieMe, is more intimate. Inspired by research into multi-sensory environments, the design is a simple plush pillow with built-in speakers that are activated by touch. Highly intuitive, it has an SD card slot so it can be customized with personal messages.

March 12 is Dutch Design Day at SXSW and participating designers will host a full day of events, including lectures and performances.

          Fashion careers: How to succeed in fashion with the co-founder of Lucas Hugh, Anjhe Marcus      Cache   Translate Page      
#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Lucas Hugh is a London-based activewear brand that incorporates futuristic design with technical performance. Established in 2010 by co-CEO and Creative Director Anjhe Marcus, Lucas Hugh was the first to incorporate the fully-bonded seam –used in Olympic-quality swimwear –into activewear. The brand caught fire with the release of The Hunger Games in 2013 where Marcus designed and developed the training outfits featured in the film.

Anjhe Marcus tells FashionUnited how her experiences working in the fashion industry inspired her to start a business that promotes well-being and encouragement. Designing with a purpose, Lucas Hugh continues to deliver unparalleled products for the modern entrepreneurial woman with an active lifestyle. Here she shares her tips on how to succeed in the fashion business.

What are your 3 tips for success?

  • Stay focused and don’t divert from your goal.
  • Find a way to maintain a positive mindset. Try not to let negativity drag you down.
  • Be open-minded, you’re not the best at everything. Find the right talent for your team.

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

As the co-CEO and creative director of Lucas Hugh, what does a workday look like?

Currently, I’m the co-founder (along with my husband) and a creative director who is deeply involved in the brand. Depending on the day, I’ll be planning a photo shoot, managing product development, fittings, branding, marketing, web development and even overseeing customer service. I’m definitely on the go and in a lot of meetings, but I always try to include fitness into my day. As a mother of two young children, the time I work-out now revolves around them. Since my youngest is only 1 year old, I’m running on lack of sleep so I come into the office early and use my lunch break for a work-out. If I need to focus on a project, I may pop outside and work from the Soho House to refresh my environment.

What challenges do you face in the fashion business? How do you stay motivated?

Running a business, you’re constantly challenged on a daily basis and 50 percent of your job is to find solutions for the problems. So many obstacles happen every day that the most important thing I find is how to manage it personally by staying internally positive and not let the negativity get you down. Sticking to a routine with exercising has helped me stay motivated. At Lucas Hugh, our values are being smart, considered and first. Internally we try to practice a positive solution-focused approach, whereby team members are accountable to providing solutions alongside problems.

How was Lucas Hugh founded, what inspired you?

After studying fashion design in New Zealand, I was a swimwear designer for about 15 years. After launching my own swimwear brand, I went to New York to work for Marc Jacobs and then for Alexander McQueen in London. I always had the desire to start my own business, but I wanted to develop a product that was necessary in the market. In 2007 I noticed that there wasn’t a product for women which combined high fashion prints and cuts with technical sportswear.

Because of my love of swimwear, I understood how to use technical fabrics and saw opportunity to adapt techniques – such as the bonded seam - that had been traditionally used in swimwear into activewear. However, because the product was so specialized, I spent 2 years researching and working on different prototypes before we launched the business in 2010. The name was inspired by both my British and New Zealand grandfathers, Lucas and Hugh, who were really into fitness and well-being. Originally from New Zealand, having an active lifestyle has been an important part of my daily routine since I was little. I felt a versatile product that could be worn from the gym to the boardroom was missing for women.

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

You used to design for your own swimwear brand and also worked for influential fashion design houses. How did these past experiences working in fashion influence you?

Coming from the fashion industry is an interesting experience and working for prominent fashion designers showed me how hierarchal and competitive the environment is. Not to mention the long hours, low pay and the feeling that you “must swim or you’ll drown.” This impression really informed me on how I’d want to set up my own business as an open, collaborative and encouraging environment despite your level within the company. Especially as an activewear brand, health and wellness are extremely important for us. You’ll find Lucas Hugh employees working out together as a team and taking breaks outside is encourage to reset and focus. We believe in being “fit in the body, fit in the mind.”

We believe in being “fit in the body, fit in the mind.”

Why did you decide to specialise in premium activewear for women?

To place an emphasis on the term premium, this was a conscious decision we made since the beginning. When you look at swimwear, there are different tiers and people would invest in a beautifully designed piece from a premium label. Within activewear, there was a gap in this category where a product was well designed and functional.

Inclusive exclusivity is an approach that we’ve found resonates with our customers. For example, our limited collections often fly off the shelves. Through consumer feedback we have learned that although women want to be unique and stand out from each other, they also want to be in the know and be the expert that shares quality products with their inner circle. The Lucas Hugh customer is not of a specific age group, but a woman who is decisive, knows what she wants and being active is part of her daily routine.

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

How is technology integrated into the production of Lucas Hugh designs?

Since day one, Lucas Hugh has been a European manufactured product so we’ve selected the best quality Italian fabrics which are moisture wicking, quick to dry and tend to have a high compression content so are very supportive and even help with muscle recovery. Designs we’ve built into our products feature details such as integrated key pockets and high visibility triangles. We’re known for using the fully bonded seam which is a laser cut heat seal originally designed for racing swimsuits and makes the garment more aerodynamic.

Our product development cycle is about 2 years. With our prototypes we’ll do different types of testing such as abrasion, wash and colour fade. Then we’ll do physical testing with various sports from yoga to running on the treadmill. Trainers in London will wear and test our products before they’re ready to hit the market.

Driven to advance the future of activewear, Lucas Hugh incorporates a new performance stretch satin fabric for SS 2019. The collection carries energy and sophistication beyond the gym with the limited-edition pieces such as Tapeology and the Pivot Skirt styles.
This interview was created in cooperation with Lucas Hugh to promote working in fashion.

VTT joins in developing cancer screening device

DF Report

SniffPhone, currently in its prototype phase, enables early diagnosis of gastric cancer from a person's exhaled breath.

The VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has participated to the development of SniffPhone prototype and concept  with nine other project partners, said an official press release.

SniffPhone is a small sensor device developed for cancer screening that can be attached to a smartphone.

In practice, the user holds the device in front of his or her mouth and exhales onto the sensor to give breath sample.

The device measures the contained Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) using highly sensitive nanotechnology-based chemical sensors. The measurements are sent via Bluetooth using a smartphone to a dedicated cloud platform, where they are analysed by the appropriate medical personnel.

The new cancer screening method has many advantages over traditional methods: the device is comfortable and painless to use. In addition, it provides a simple, fast and cost-effective alternative for screening gastric cancers. In the project, SniffPhone prototypes have been developed and validated by means of, for example, clinical studies. The next step in the project is finding financiers for this kind of novel cancer screening method. Commercialisation of the device is planned to take place through a spin-off company.

VTT's role in the project was the implementation of the platform for transferring data from the smartphone to a cloud-based storage space. It has also been building analysis tools and methods for recognising high-risk patients. In addition, VTT developed a mobile application that guides the user in giving a breath sample and provides the user with a preliminary analysis of the sample. Furthermore, a physician's analysis tool has been developed to display the analysis results of breath samples.

 VTT was also in charge of the implementation of responsible research and innovation in the project by such methods as engaging final users and stakeholders in the development work through interviews and workshops and integrating responsible design practices into project operations.

The SniffPhone project is part of the EU's Horizon 2020 Funding Programme. The project consortium consists of nine partners: the coordinator Technion - Israel Institute of Technology (Israel), NanoVation (Israel), Cellix Ltd (Ireland), microfluidic ChipShop (Germany), University of Latvia (Latvia), University of Innsbruck (Austria), Siemens (Germany), JLM Innovation GmbH (Germany) and VTT.

On 21 November 2018, the SniffPhone project was awarded the 2018 Innovation Award by the European Commission for Most Innovative Project.

As the saying goes: "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". More companies than ever are beginning to heed this advice. They're realizing that it is okay to make an extra effort to avoid usability issues. It is far less expensive than having to resolve problems later.

Debugging a software application before launch is a standard operating procedure. Any bugs that manage to sneak through can be potential troublemakers. Most problems users encounter are usability issues. These can and should be addressed during the initial prototyping.

Check for potential usability issues early in the design phase. Even though this often requires additional time and budget, it saves money in the long term. Designers and project managers need to think in terms of ROI. This is instead of working to satisfy short-term goals.

The right tools and resources can be invaluable for getting things right. All this at minimal extra expense.

Let's look at several of the best.

1. Mason

Mason

Mason provides a front-end feature building experience par excellence. Designed for modern teams, it enables them to come together to create front-end features for their apps efficiently and economically.

With Mason you can bypass additional prototyping, wireframing, or additional coding to get the job done. Mason integrates seamlessly into your existing code base to significantly shorten development and deployments cycles. It also enables teams to react and adapt to a feature-building state of affairs with lightning speed, often saving a ton of money in the process.

More than anything else, Mason's feature-building capabilities allow teams to respond immediately to user or customer needs. Teams can provide users with solutions that are sound, extensible, secure, and reliable; and allow a team's developers to work on more complex or higher priority projects.

Mason won't weigh your site or app down. It's an invaluable tool for a team to have on hand when they're responsible for maintaining one or more software products or solutions. It's triggered whenever needed, and only when needed.

2. UXPin

UXPin is a designer's dream. This fundamentally different design tool is used in companies like PayPal and Microsoft to build realistic prototypes, with the powers of code components, logic, states, and design systems. With its extensive library of design components, UXPin can be used to create prototypes that look and feel like real products, from start to finish without ever leaving the app.

UXPin provides powerful team collaboration and product handoff features as well. Since it's cloud-based, you can prototype and collaborate from browsers as well as desktop apps – both on Mac OS and Windows. Easily iterate from low-fidelity to high-fidelity prototypes that feature complex interactions and look real without a need for any other tools.

With this all-in-one web and app design tool, you can ensure consistency across product lines while at the same time reducing design, development, and deployment time and costs.

3. Interfacer

Interfacer is a great source of free design resources to have at your fingertips. Their collection of more than 300 resources includes web template libraries, eCommerce, blockchain, travel app and other UI kits, more than 80 different icon mini libraries, and nearly 100 mockup solutions.

Feel free to use any of these high-quality free design aids on commercial projects.

4. Webflow

If you're in the market for an all-in-one tool to design, build, and launch fully customized and responsive websites, Webflow is a great choice.

With Webflow, you can also create a customized and client-friendly CMS for every site and enjoy super-fast, managed hosting, all without coding or troublesome setup issues. Webflow is also the ideal solution for prototyping and for building eCommerce solutions – also without coding.

Why should you care about UX and these tools?

A Well-Designed UI can Help to Increase Conversions

You've been there before, probably many times. Let's say you're doing some comparison shopping for a product or service. You have come across several websites that address your problem.

One clearly stands out.

You easily found the information you needed. Your experience was in fact so enjoyable that you bookmarked the website.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to design a website or app like that one?

Increase Your Brand Loyalty with UX Design

A good user experience accomplishes a great deal for a business. Your site's UX can contribute greatly to build trust in your brand, your product, or your service. It can play a vital role in establishing a relationship with your customers.

A friendly UX encourages customer activation and fosters loyalty to your brand. Same goes for your products and services.

Don't Forget the Importance of Word-of-Mouth Referrals

Whether it's a book, a movie, a YouTube video, or a website, people like to share things they enjoy with others. People buy into good experiences, and if you provide them, they're going to tell the world about them.

You should make the buying process not just easy, but as easy as possible for a customer. That customer is going to remember it – and recommend it to others to experience.

Conclusion

What you want and expect from a top UX or UI tool or source naturally depends on your needs. But those we've presented here have several things in common that should appeal to you.

They can save you time and money, the tools are fast, efficient, and reliable. The resource for design aids can relieve you of having to reinvent the wheel.

Ford Fiesta based SUV Ecosport replacement winter testing
Bulky camouflage masks a Fiesta-aping front grille and bumper
Reinvented compact crossover shows close alignment to Fiesta as prototypes begin winter testing

New images show Ford's Fiesta-based small SUV, which will replace the Ecosport in the firm’s range, carrying out winter testing.

The new compact crossover has been photographed sporting heavily disguised Fiesta-based bodywork but with a clear SUV-style raised ride height.

The as-yet-unnamed model, which could retain the Ecosport nameplate or take on a new identity more closely aligned to the Fiesta, will serve as a replacement for the ageing Ecosport as the smallest model in Ford’s SUV range.

Linking the styling of the new car closer to the Fiesta could help Ford increase its competitiveness in the fast-growing crossover market. The Fiesta was the best-selling car in Britain in 2018, while the Ecosport has long struggled against rivals such as the Nissan Juke and Seat Arona.

The car is set to share a platform - and possibly an engine range, including the popular Ecoboost petrol powertrains - with the Fiesta. That means it's likely to be front-wheel drive, although a four-wheel-drive system could potentially be carried over from the current Ecosport.

It will sit alongside the Fiesta Active, a jacked-up version of the supermini.

          How about a Le Mans McLaren?      Cache   Translate Page      
McLaren Speedtail McLaren's F1 and Speedtail have shown us that the best place for a driver to sit is in the middle

Even after the last Speedtail rolls out of Woking at the end of next year, Mike Flewitt is not yet done with central driving positions. 

He said: “Three seats can’t go more mainstream because the safety legislation is complex. This means, for instance, customers in North America have to privately import in their cars. But I’d love to see that centre seat idea in a pure track car, like a GTR. It’s so great to drive, we can do it, so why not?” 

He’s right. Anyone who has driven anything from a McLaren F1 to a Formula Ford will know central driving positions just feel right. But I wonder if there’s something else here: McLaren has always said the Speedtail’s configuration is a homage to the McLaren F1, but the comparatively heavy car is by no means a replacement for perhaps the most iconic hypercar of all. 

McLaren is working on a P1 successor, so perhaps that’s where it will pop up next: an ultralight hybrid hypercar with a central driving position introduced in time for a racing version to qualify for the 2021 street-car-based Le Mans prototype category. 

Wishful thinking? Perhaps, but wouldn’t it be great if it was true?

          These 3D-printed homes can be built for less than $4,000 in just 24 hours      Cache   Translate Page      

New Story printable homes 7

  • Last March, the 3D printing company Icon produced a 350-square-foot tiny home that cost $10,000 and took just 48 hours hours to build.
  • The company was confident that it could print a larger structure in just 24 hours for even less — around $4,000 — since the printer wasn't running at full speed. 
  • A year after its prototype was released, Icon is now selling an upgraded version of its 3D printer.

Printable homes represent the latest wave in construction, but they're not always cheap or easy to build.

In March, New Story, a housing nonprofit based in San Francisco, and Icon, a construction-technology company that designs 3D printers, defied these stereotypes by producing a $10,000 tiny home in just 48 hours.

Icon called the structure "the first permitted, 3D-printed home in America."

At 350 square feet, the house was far cheaper than the average tiny home, which has a price tag hovering at around $25,000, but can often reach six figures. Before using 3D-printing technology, it took New Story eight months to build 100 homes, each costing about $6,000.

While the prototype was being developed, Icon's printer, known as the Vulcan, was running at only 25% speed. That gave the companies confidence that they could build a 600- to 800-square-foot home in just 24 hours for $4,000 or less.

When it comes to producing an average-sized home — around 2,000 square feet — the savings aren't quite as stark. A year after releasing its $10,000 prototype in Austin, Texas, Icon told the Wall Street Journal that printing a 2,000-square-foot home would cost around $20,000.  

More remarkable is the fact that the company's upgraded printer, the Vulcan II, is now available for purchase, and could soon be used to produce affordable homes in places like Austin and Latin America. 

Icon's first 3D model offers a glimpse of what the machine could produce in the future. Take a look.

The Vulcan II can produce a home seamlessly onsite, without having to piece together individual units.

The printer churns out layers of cement, which amass to form the walls of the home. Non-printed fixtures like doors and windows are installed later. 

The Vulcan II is capable of producing walls that are up to eight-and-a-half feet tall and up to 28 feet wide.



The printer is designed to be mobile and weighs about 3,800 pounds.

The Vulcan II is operated by a tablet, which means only a few workers are required to produce a 3D home. 



It's also made to withstand rural weather conditions, meaning it could operate during a power shortage or without access to potable water.

The home's cement mixture is also able to withstand extreme weather conditions.

          El 93 % de todos los coches eléctricos vendidos en 2018 usaron motores de imanes permanentes, según un estudio      Cache   Translate Page      

El 93 % de todos los coches eléctricos vendidos en 2018 usaron motores de imanes permanentes, según un estudio#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Green Car Congress se ha hecho eco de un interesante estudio llevado a cabo por la consultora Adamas acerca del peso que han tenido los materiales y metales en la fabricación de motores eléctricos durante 2018.

El resultado ha sido que el año pasado el 93 % de todos los motores de coches eléctricos puros, híbridos e híbridos enchufables utilizaron imanes permanentes, lo que supone un incremento del 1 % respecto a 2017. Uno de los principales ingredientes de este tipo de motores son las tierras raras.

Más eficientes y más económicos

Según la consultora, los motores eléctricos de imanes permanentes precisan de materiales más caros para su fabricación que los de inducción, pero son sustancialmente más económicos desde el punto de vista de un fabricante de automóviles ya que su alta eficiencia permite que la batería pueda ser de menor tamaño sin sacrificar la autonomía. Son, así, más compactos.

Adamas Fuente: Adamas.

Como ejemplo, la consultora asegura que aumentar la capacidad de un paquete de baterías de 60 kWh en un 5 %, para compensar el uso de un motor de inducción puede aumentar el coste del tren motriz en más de 300 dólares.

Además son hasta un 15 % más eficientes que los motores de inducción y alcanzan mayor densidad de potencia tanto en kW/kg como en kW/cm3.

Sin embargo, los imanes permanentes utilizados en un motor eléctrico tienen una capacidad magnética limitada y se ven además afectados por el aumento de temperaturas, dos inconvenientes que pueden llegar a afectar al crecimiento de este tipo de motores.

Hay varias empresas que destacan en el mercado global de motores de imanes permanentes, como ABB Group, General Electric Company, Siemens AG, YaskawaElectric Corporation, Rockwell Automation Inc., Nidec Corporation, AMETEK, Inc. o Toshiba Corporation.

En la parte de 'ingredientes' necesarios para desarrollar este tipo de motores encontramos las tierras raras. Son 17 elementos químicos cuyo nombre, más que a su disponibilidad, se refiere al hecho de que su extracción no está concentrada, ya que algunos elementos como el cerio, el itrio y el neodimio son más abundantes.

Sin embargo, muchas veces, se extraen de otros procesos productivos que requieren usar mucha agua así como procesos químicos y físicos, los que los hace muy cotizados.

El problema de las tierras raras y sus alternativas

tierras raras

El principal productor de tierras raras es, hasta ahora, China, que tiene el monopolio de su producción en la actualidad. Sus minas en Baotou, donde se producía cerio -el principal ingrediente de estos motores-, obligaron a evacuar a sus 2.000 habitantes y su superficie se convirtió en un vertedero de desechos tóxicos y radioactivos. Fue bautizada como el peor lugar de la Tierra.

Y es que la extracción a cielo abierto de estos minerales provoca un serio impacto medioambiental: por los terrenos que se usan para extraer las tierras raras y porque algunos elementos van asociados a otros elementos radiactivos, como el torio y el uranio.

Ya en 2012, Toshiba desarrolló un imán de samario-cobalto, libre de disprosio (que es muy caro y escaso), y con alta concentración de hierro, para sustituir a los imanes de neodimio, utilizados en la fabricación de motores eléctricos. También Honda decidió iniciar un proceso de reciclado de tierras raras a gran escala.

Pero ha sido en 2017 cuando esta firma japonesa anunció el lanzamiento de un motor para vehículos híbridos que no requiere de estos minerales pesados. Se montó en el extraño Honda Freed.

          Real-time neural sliding mode field oriented control for a DFIG-based wind turbine under balanced and unbalanced grid conditions      Cache   Translate Page      
This study proposes a real-time sliding mode field oriented control for a doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG)-based wind turbine prototype connected to the grid. The proposed controller is used to track the desired direct current (DC) voltage reference at the output of the DC link, to maintain constant the grid power factor at the step-up transformer terminals controlled by the grid side converter, and to force independently the stator active and reactive power to track desired values through the rotor currents controlled by the rotor side converter. This control scheme is based on a recurrent high-order neural network (RHONN) identifier trained on-line by an extended Kalman filter. The RHONN is used to approximate the DC link and the DFIG mathematical models. The adequate approximation helps to calculate the exact equivalent control part of the sliding mode controller and to eliminate the effects of disturbances and unknown dynamics appearing in the grid, which improves the robustness of the control scheme. This controller is experimentally validated on a 1/4 HP DFIG prototype and tested for variable wind speed to track a time-varying power reference and to extract the maximum power from the wind, under both balanced and unbalanced grid conditions.

          Curry with JS      Cache   Translate Page      

Partial application and currying with Javascript

In the strict way, currying is the technique of transforming a function that takes multiple arguments (a tuple of arguments) to one function that receive only one. In such way, currying techniques allow transform one multi-parameter function in a chain of functions, each one with a single argument. Looks complicated? Blah.. it is not true.
In this little article, we are actually more interesting in partial applications. Let’s take the Mozilla Example for replace function in String. As we know, we can use a “replacer” function as paramenter for replace method in String object.
Let’s say that we want to split a String defined by a non-numerical part, a numerical part and finally a non-alphanumeric part. Here is how:
function replacer(match, p1, p2, p3, offset, string){
// p1 is nondigits, p2 digits, and p3 non-alphanumerics
return [p1, p2, p3].join(' - ');
};
We can try it as usual…
var newString = "abc12345#$*%".replace(/([^\d]*)(\d*)([^\w]*)/, replacer);
So far so good. Let’s say now that the delimiter should change according with some conditions, e.g. locale specific.
function replacer(delimiter, match, p1, p2, p3, offset, string){
return [p1, p2, p3].join(delimiter);
}
That’s bad. We cannot apply that replacer in regexp replace function. What can you do?
We want to have a partial application for that function. Take that!
function makeReplacer(delimiter) {
return function replacer(match, p1, p2, p3, offset, string){
return [p1, p2, p3].join(delimiter);
}
}
So now, we can create a replacer for comma-separated-value:
var delimiter = ',';
var csvReplacer = makeReplacer(delimiter)
That constructor is so simple, so elementar that we could create a generic way to do that. Let’s create a curry function.
Function.prototype.curry = function() {
var fn = this, args = Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments);
return function() { // new function
return fn.apply(this, args.concat(
Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments)));
};
};
How does the magic work? Closure!!! That dammit word is what defined the whole magic.
var fn = this;
var args = Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments);
First, arguments is a special object to access the parameters. However, arguments type is very similar to Array but it is not an Array. To use it in apply method we need to convert it to real Array. For that, we gonna use slice function. But slice function is a method defined on Array. Ok. Ok. Let’s use the slice function from Array replacing “this” object (within slice context) by “arguments” object. with the mighty call method…
Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments);
In that way, we have this and arguments saved on context. The Closure magic will keep that context (those local variables fn and args) within the context of new function. In that new function context, we also have a new values for this variable (now keeping the new function reference) and arguments (now the arguments of that function). So we can concat (add all elements) from arguments the to our args and we gonna have all arguments necessary for the original function.
return fn.apply(this, args.concat(Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments)));};
So here we can rewrite the makeReplacer with curry… (because it is more spicy):
var delimiter = ',';
var csvReplacer = replacer.curry(delimiter)

It all began with my idea about toe shaping in toe-up socks.  Why shouldn't the effort of all those increases result in something more than a plain toe?  Something like this:

At least, that is the toe I envisioned.  It isn't the first one I knit.  There's a photo of the first toe I knit in the reprinted post, the one just before this one.  Although I could have, and should have, continued the original pair of socks, knitting the mate to the first one, I didn't.  I abandoned the toe-up sock and knit a cuff-down sock, the mate to the one in the photo above.  My reason for abandoning the first sock was simple.
That pretty little leg in the photo above is just that--little.  It is a bit too tight.  Starting the next sock from the cuff allowed me to solve that problem right away.  The first sock, the one in the photo above, has only 7 repeats in the leg.  The one I knit next has 8.

Since the leg now fit, I stuck with the cuff-down sock, designing a special heel and making sure the foot fit well.  Along the way, I refined the stitch pattern and the color sequence.  Then I returned to the first sock and knit it a mate.  Now there are two versions, toe-up and cuff-down.  Click this link to see my Ravelry project for the toe-up pair.
          Hitinis, the first knitting      Cache   Translate Page      
The text and photos below are from an entry I posted in September 2011.  I was raiding it for the photos when I noticed that it doesn't display properly.  Since this is the first I blogged about my now finished design, I have reworked the entry and placed it in 2014.  I'll continue writing about the development of my Hitini sock pattern in my next post.  Here's what I first wrote:

Sometimes, as I knit, I think about knitting. I'm not usually that obsessed. Usually, I'm watching or listening to something or someone and my hands are knitting. Occasionally, though, I will look down at what I am knitting, hands still moving, and think of knitting something else entirely. Often, this thought becomes a puzzle. Even after years of knitting, I can't visualize the stitches. I think of the stitches that are required to form a shape, but I can't see the shape until I knit it. I become curious about the shape I can't quite see. I want to know how my idea will look in reality. I want to put down what I'm knitting and cast on this new idea.
I try to make myself wait. I try to focus on what I'm knitting. Usually I have something else on the needles that I ought to finish. I may be able to postpone casting on the new idea for days, even weeks. I have to fight it, because I know that once I give in and cast on, I will be obsessed. I will drop my other projects, or at least give them very limited attention, and devote my available time to the new idea.
My latest new idea is, no surprise, a sock. Even after I cast on, the design was slow to evolve. At the beginning, I was thinking about the Double Heelix pattern in the latest Knitty, a sock pattern that uses the heel shaping to create a design on the heel. I began to consider how the same concept would work for a toe. My first thought was that since toes and heels are basically the same, the same set of spirals could be worked and used as a toe. Since knitting a heel and using it as a toe didn't seem very challenging, I considered what other patterns might evolve from a toe. The longer I postponed knitting this project, the more curious about it I became. I knew I'd better start with the toe. After all, I'd never be able to last while knitting a leg, heel, and a foot!
Thus I began, simply, with a toe.
I cast on from the toe up and began shaping the toe with increases. After a few rounds, I had enough stitches to begin a pattern. I used the shaping increases as part of the pattern. I had found a chevron design that includes the same increase I was using the the toe. I modified the pattern to make it fit the stitches I had on the needles. As I added more stitches, I worked them into the pattern. Once the toe was done, I had to decide how to knit the foot. I was working with leftovers and couldn't find a yarn that worked with the first two bits. I had reluctantly sacrificed one of my favorite hoarded sock yarns, some Koigu KPPPM in beautiful light greens, hoping one hank might be enough for a pair if I used the bits for the toes and heels. I must not have been completely happy with this choice for the foot, because I let it sit like this for days. Nothing in my sock yarn stashed looked good with the toe I had knit out of leftovers. Once I realized I needed to continue with the design as I had begun it, I reallized how to knit the foot. I ripped out the hoarded yarn and put it back in the hoard. With just a basket of leftovers and enthusiasm, I finished the sock in a few days.
There's just one sock, though. This prototype has some features I don't like. I'm going to start another with a different set of colors and an altered pattern. I'll start this one from the cuff and work down to tackle the problem I'm having with cuff sizing.
          Matrix-oriented discretization methods for reaction-diffusion PDEs: comparisons and applications. (arXiv:1903.05030v1 [math.NA])      Cache   Translate Page      

Authors: Maria Chiara D'Autilia, Ivonne Sgura, Valeria Simoncini

Systems of reaction-diffusion partial differential equations (RD-PDEs) are widely applied for modelling life science and physico-chemical phenomena. In particular, the coupling between diffusion and nonlinear kinetics can lead to the so-called Turing instability, giving rise to a variety of spatial patterns (like labyrinths, spots, stripes, etc.) attained as steady state solutions for large time intervals. To capture the morphological peculiarities of the pattern itself, a very fine space discretization may be required, limiting the use of standard (vector-based) ODE solvers in time because of excessive computational costs. We show that the structure of the diffusion matrix can be exploited so as to use matrix-based versions of time integrators, such as Implicit-Explicit (IMEX) and exponential schemes. This implementation entails the solution of a sequence of discrete matrix problems of significantly smaller dimensions than in the vector case, thus allowing for a much finer problem discretization. We illustrate our findings by numerically solving the Schnackenberg model, prototype of RD-PDE systems with Turing pattern solutions, and the DIB-morphochemical model describing metal growth during battery charging processes.

           Refrigerants not required: Flexible metal cooling prototype demonstrates extreme efficiency       Cache   Translate Page      

The prototype heating/cooling system uses the remarkable properties of shape-memory nitinol metals for environmentally friendly cooling ...#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

A German research team has prototyped an extraordinary heating/cooling system that stresses and unloads nickel-titanium "muscle wires" to create heated and cooled air at twice the efficiency of a heat pump or three times the efficiency of an air conditioner. Crucially, the device also uses no refrigerant gases, meaning it's a much more environmentally friendly way to heat or cool a space.

Estos son los más de 600 juegos disponibles ya en PSNow en España#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Ha tardado más de lo deseado, pero PlayStation Now ya se puede disfrutar en España y lo único que necesitas para acceder al catálogo de más de 600 juegos (según la web oficial) son tres cosas: disponer de una PS4 o un PC, una conexión de internet y -lógicamente- al menos un mando.

Un servicio que significa acceso a una enorme colección instantánea de juegos, pero también la supondrá la puerta de entrada de títulos esenciales de PS2, PS3 (como Red Dead Redemption) y PS4 a los sistemas en los que es compatible. Por no hablar del hito de jugar a Bloodborne o The Last of Us en PC.

No está de mas recordar que PS Now da la opción de descargar los videojuegos de PS4 y PS2 directamente a la consola PS4 para poder jugar sin conexión y a la resolución nativa de cada título.

Dicho lo anterior, la pregunta es obvia: ¿a qué juegos tendré acceso por lo que cuesta una mensualidad? Bueno, está la opción de activar los siete días de prueba gratuita del servicio, aunque estamos seguros de el siguiente listado es mucho más práctico, sencillo y está ordenado por consola y alfabéticamente:

          ATLAS: High Granularity Timing Detector, Focus on sensor performance      Cache   Translate Page      
The expected increase of the particle flux at the high luminosity phase of the LHC (HL-LHC) with instantaneous luminosities up to L ? 7.5 × 1034 cm-2 s-1 will have a severe impact on the ATLAS detector performance. The pile-up is expected to increase on average to 200 interactions per bunch crossing. The reconstruction and trigger performance for electrons, photons as well as jets and transverse missing energy will be severely degraded in the end-cap and forward region, where the liquid Argon based electromagnetic calorimeter has coarser granularity and the inner tracker has poorer momentum resolution compared to the central region. A High Granularity Timing Detector (HGTD) is proposed in front of the liquid Argon end-cap calorimeters for pile-up mitigation and for bunch per bunch luminosity measurements. This device should cover the pseudo-rapidity range of 2.4 to about 4.0. Two Silicon sensors double sided layers are foreseen to provide a precision timing information for minimum ionizing particle with a time resolution better than 50 pico-seconds per hit (i.e 30 pico-seconds per track) in order to assign the particle to the correct vertex. Each readout cell has a transverse size of 1.3mm × 1.3 mm leading to a highly granular detector with about 3 millions of readout electronics channels. Low Gain Avalanche Detectors (LGAD) technology has been chosen as it provides an internal gain good enough to reach large signal over noise ratio needed for excellent time resolution. Through a 4 period test-beam campaign at the CERN SPS H6A & B beamlines, proton and neutron irradiated LGAD prototypes for the HGTD upgrade were tested from several different technologies and manufactures. Gallium, boron and carbon implanted 1.3x1.3 mm2 diodes and 2 x 2 arrays are compared for achieved timing performance, post-irradiation efficiency and uniformity at fluences up to 6e15neq/cm2. Laboratory characterisation of large sensors arrays recently delivered (5x5 and 15x15 pads) will be also discussed. In addition the beam test measurement of a first HGTD module prototype made of 2x2 array sensor bump bonded to an ASIC called ALTIROC0, will be presented.

          Comment on Bob’s Predictions for 2019 — The Year When Everything Changes… Forever by Mark      Cache   Translate Page      
Interesting. I have been thinking more around a 60-year cycle. I have been predicting the coming decade (2020-2030) is going to bring more dramatic change than the decade of the 1960s (1960-1970). You can widen the time frame a bit, to see the larger effect, the edges of the normal distribution. If we look starting from late 1957, we see the the first satellites and the rise of jet airplanes. By the end of the decade man walked on the Moon and the prototype Concorde SST and Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet had flown. The 747 entered passenger service in January of 1970, just 11 years and 9 months after Boeing's first jetliner, the 707. Apollo 11 landed on the Moon just 11 years and 9 months after Sputnik 1. What is it about 11 years and 9 months? Like the late 1950s, the late 2010s foreshadow the decade to come. Things like self-driving cars, AI, etc. are on the fringe now. Where will the be 11 years and 9 months from now? Transportation could be radically different in 11 years from now. Higher education could be radically different 11 years from now. Medical treatments could be radically different 11 years from now.

After printing the rocket I drilled 9mm holes to rocket's bottom so I was able to insert and glue 2 of 8x3mm round magnets inside. after all that was done I used various sandpapers, spray filler and white spray to hide all the magnets and layers. Next, I've glued magnets with matching pole of magnets on the rocket to exhaust with superglue. I tested all the electronics and code on breadboard and after that was done, I soldered everything on piece of prototyping perfboard. I set up the battery pack with cheap modules that provided charge protect and boost functions and after testing everything together I noticed that the step-up module was making some quiet, weird sound. I tied adding a 100uF 50v capacitor to its output and the noise magically disappeared.
Now I have a very good looking model of Falcon Heavy rocket lighting my room at night.

"The basic idea from October is still the same. In the flagship Twitter app, replies appear in a chaotic jumble. On twttr, replies are threaded in a way that might be familiar to users of Reddit. As more users interact with a tweet, additional replies are indented, giving the conversation a better visual hierarchy. Replies from the original tweeter are shadowed in black, rather than the blue of other responses, giving them added weight.

Another notable change in this design is the decision to remove engagement counts from the design. You won’t know how many likes or retweets a response got unless you tap it, a step most users will never take. The idea is to avoid rewarding people for attacking one another with zingers in the way that more visible engagement counts do.

Finally, the new design hides some replies under a “show more” button. That includes replies that “could be abusive or spammy,” a Twitter spokeswoman said in an email."

          By Eliminating a Major CAD Drawback, SimSolid Gives Designers New Opportunities for Workflow       Cache   Translate Page      

We've just learned about a fantastic CAD tool—one that works with whatever CAD package you have—that will be a game-changer in the industrial design space. Altair's SimSolid is a simulation plug-in (also available as a stand-alone app) that completely eliminates meshing, that tedious process of simplifying geometry for Finite Element Analysis (FEA). By running SimSolid over your CAD model, you can do simulations nearly instantly—on your original geometry, with no clean-up required.

I know what you're thinking: "Isn't that FEA stuff for engineers? I'm a designer, why should I care about this?" To answer that, let's explain what has been the traditional FEA process up until now, then show you how SimSolid's new advantages would make a difference in your design workflow.

SimSolid is structural analysis software developed specifically for design engineers, enabling the analysis of fully-featured CAD assemblies in minutes without meshing.

Traditional FEA: Useful, But Often Difficult to Use

Finite Element Analysis, or FEA, has become a crucial step in the CAD process. The more simulations you can do, the less prototypes you have to build, saving you both time and money. The problem is that no CAD program is sophisticated enough to run simulations on original CAD geometry, particularly with complicated assemblies, and requires the dreaded meshing step.

So traditionally, you'd design something and draw it up in CAD. It then goes over to an analyst or CAE department, where your CAD geometry is converted into a mesh so that simulations can be run on it. This geometry conversion is time-consuming and a bit of a black art: Should we run a coarse mesh for greater speed, and sacrifice accuracy? Or should we run a finer mesh for accuracy, waiting hours or even days for the computer to produce it?

Another problem with meshing is that it plays havoc with CAD geometry, creating extra busywork and providing opportunities for error. Often lost in translation during the meshing process are crucial connections, gaps and overlaps. Mating parts that you slaved over no longer line up precisely. Designs with small features, both thick and thin parts and/or irregular transitions all provide headaches that must be hunted down and re-worked. To save time, a common trick is to break your assembly into parts and analyze them separately. This introduces the opportunity for errors that can cost end users even more time down the road.

According to the website of one major CAD manufacturer, "Meshing a model is an integral step in performing any simulation. There's no getting around it—it has to be done." Well, with the arrival of SimSolid, that's no longer true.

SimSolid Simplifies FEA, Making it Easy for Designers to Use

SimSolid can run analyses nearly instantly—on your original CAD geometry. There's no meshing required; you pull your CAD file in and it's ready to go within seconds. You don't need to be an analyst with a background in mesh voodoo. You, the designer, can run simulations to figure out if your concept is even viable before kicking it over to ME.

SimSolid eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time-consuming and expertise-extensive tasks done in traditional FEA.

And if you're a designer working without the benefit of a dedicated engineering department—let's say you're a design entrepreneur or part of a small team crafting low-tech objects for a crowdfunding campaign—the utility of SimSolid should be obvious. Where is the clamp for your new bike light design most liable to break? Will your design for a cantilevered monitor stand support the 21.5 pounds of a 27" iMac Pro? Is the wall thickness for your object appropriate for the application? Are two mounting bolts enough, or do you need four?

A complex machined part with more than 100 small holes. It's time-consuming to mesh and solve this using traditional FEA. SimSolid does it in seconds.

To be able to see these results in seconds to minutes—rather than hours or days—can let you know, early on, if you're barking up the right design tree. And as you refine the design, having the ability to definitively see whether you're over- or under-engineering an object can give you a more accurate idea of BOM and eliminate that "Hey Kickstarter backers, sorry, but we screwed up" update down the line.

For a designer working within an organization that does have access to a dedicated engineering branch, SimSolid can provide an entirely new workflow. Even if ME ultimately needs to sign off after doing their own analysis, you can learn if your initial designs are viable well before knocking on their door. And by being able to spot problems early, you can tackle them with design proposals that hew more closely to your original vision, rather than you designing a unicorn and the engineers coming back with a rhinoceros.

Without having to ask the engineers, you can quickly find out exactly where this stepladder's liable to break if overloaded. That gives you the power to foresee problems and tackle them with design first.

"SimSolid a very empowering piece of software for those users who were locked out of a part of the process; now they can participate," says co-developer Ken Welch. "Let's say you're an industrial designer, and you realize 'I can run a structural simulation right now, without having to wait.' Well, now you can ask a question, and answer it yourself.

"That allows you to develop your designs faster, because now you can use simulation as an integral part of the design process. When you have performance insights available to you early on in the design process, that opens up the possibility for new workflows that were simply not possible in the past."

You can use SimSolid to quickly check where the stress points are on this pull-up bar, and how they change depending on which of the three handle sets are pulled on.

"And you can explore more. Not just with simple parts, as with most other FEA systems; with SimSolid you can look at full assemblies and very complex geometries."

Video Demonstrations

The following videos can give you a better idea of what SimSolid can do for you.

An Introduction to SimSolid

In this first video Warren Dias, Altair's Director of Global Business Developmen, explains the benefits of the software. This is the video you show to your manager:

Demonstration #1: Modal Analysis

Here you can see not only the multitude of CAD formats supported, but just how fast it is to pull a complicated part into SimSolid and run a quick modal analysis:

Demonstration #2: Comparing Multiple Design Variants

In this second demo, Dias r?uns a linear static analysis on two models, showing you how easy it is to compare them directly:

Demonstration #3: Performing a Non-Linear Static Analysis

In the third demo a non-linear static analysis is run, revealing separating contacts with as much ease as the first two demos:

As you can see, results are nearly instantaneous; that little flashing green bar at the bottom left of the screen seems to finish impossibly quickly. I noticed the same during demonstrations given to us by Welch, and I asked him what kind of high-powered hardware the program required.

"I'm just running it on a laptop," he explained. "A lot of people see the demos and think 'I need to run this on a supercomputer in the cloud, right? Or buy a really expensive GPU?' But no, I'm running this on a standard-core i7 laptop, and it runs great."

In short, SimSolid is fast, accurate, and doesn't require extra computing. It opens up a world of possibilities to designers working within today's fast-paced timelines, removing a barrier between ID and ME that seemed intractable. "Analysis never really had the impact it could," Welch says, "because it just couldn't work at the speed of design."

Well, now it can.

To confirm it yourself, you can try SimSolid for free. Altair has also launched a social media promotion where SimSolid users can post a simulation for a chance to win weekly cash prizes. 

"Post your SimSolid simulation results to social media throughout the months of March and April 2019," the company writes, "and every week, five people will be selected to win $50 Visa Gift Cards. The best model at the end of the promotion will win a $1000 grand prize."

Taxi products and services provide men and women. The fleet of yellow-checkered cabs is the pride of the New York Town. For many years, these legendary cabs have been having folks to their desired destination. Roadways search incomplete devoid of these taxis. Approaches To Seek the services of A Taxi Taxi There are two means to retain the services of a taxi: *Choose an vacant taxi right off the avenue. The taxi expert services have taxis in several sections of the city for individuals who need to use them. *Dial a number of taxi assistance. These are get in touch with-in providers. Explain to them the deal with from the place you want to be picked and the place to be dropped. The dispatcher connects to the special radio technique of the taxi company and finds a taxi that is the closest to your tackle. The taxi reaches you in five-ten minutes. It is significantly a lot more easy. You can e book a taxi services with out leaving the ease and comfort of your home. Certain taxi solutions accept progress reservations. A single these kinds of is the limousine support. If, you have a marriage ceremony to attend following week, you can reserve a limo a week prior to the celebration. Taxi Prices Costs count on the common preliminary fare of the distinct place. This contains the cost of selecting a taxi, tariff rate, journey length, waiting around time in website traffic jams, and at the curbside for you. If you do not very own a auto, you can locate several taxi cabs at airport terminals or exterior hotels. You ought to know the base air taxi charges to and from the airport to essential spots of the metropolis, to the heart of the metropolis and suburbs. The standard rate is $forty five. A taxi company will ordinarily demand according to the miles traveled. This retains the dealing crystal clear. Rewards Of Choosing A Taxi Most of the taxi motorists are professional about the town. They are common with the targeted traffic cases and know how to get you to your vacation spot immediately and safely. You may possibly fear about how you will access the significantly end of the city. But for a taxi driver, it's no big offer. You preserve a great deal of trouble and time by employing a taxi service. Moreover, in a metropolitan city, taxis are a superior eco-pleasant alternative to journey. It is finest to park your motor vehicle in the garage and hail a taxi. You can also motor vehicle-pool. You can travel with your pals or colleagues in 1 taxi. Yet another reward of hiring a taxi is that you are saved from the headache of finding a location to park. Parking room is quick emerging as a massive difficulty. While taxis might not match the luxury of touring in your possess auto, they provide a practical and a lot quicker touring resolution inside the metropolis. With the regulation of taxi services market, taxi fares have become better but they make certain that the driver has a legitimate license and permit for his cab. You only have to have to elevate a hand even though standing on the sidewalk and a taxi will get there!

          The Origin of Türkic Script.      Cache   Translate Page      

Introduction
There are two main hypotheses about origin of Türkic “runic” script. The most of authors handled with it, supposed a Semitic origin of the script which came to Türks through Iranian or Greek prototypes (loan hypothesis).1 The rest scholars argued that it had autochthonic invention developed from ideography and pictography including the tamga (autochthonic hypothesis).2 Both sides do not exclude the mutual influences and path dependence of both roots. Both hypotheses do not provide an explanation of extraction of all letters of the script (table 7).3
Without full-length going to previous hypotheses and opinions, we would like to suggest a hypothesis that Türkic “Runic” script genetically traces its roots back to civilization which began to set in its developmentin the period of Shan-Ying and Zhou (II – I millennia B.C.). The origin of above-mentioned dynasties and cultures is still uncertain, but its cultural clusters spread among many peoples and cultures in the Eastern Eurasia.
In our opinion, Türkic peoples were bearer of (some) Shan-Ying and Zhou traditions (or inherited them through historical intercommunications) and the origin of Türkic script is closely related to the two elements that underlay the ancient Zhou canon Zhouyi (or Yijing), line and abortive line. Line and angle (abortive line turned to angle) constitute all letters of the Türkic alphabet, sometimes with curved varieties: curved line and semicircle (curved angle) and with account of this cause, we would like to name Türkic “runic” script as ‘linearly-angular’. 
The raising a new problem of origin of Türkic script from initial elements of Yijing hexagrams requires putting forward two groups of evidences in favour of suggested hypothesis. First group concerns evidences of intrinsic links of extraction of all letters of Türkic alphabet based on technique of operating with two suggested elements connected both language and script. Second one suggests the data retrieval which could help to connect Türkic culture with some main distinctive characteristic features remained from Shan-Ying and Zhou civilization(s). Hence we divided the article into two parts described above-mentioned groups of tasks.

Important Note: In the article we used both the real etymologies and meanings of Türkic words and the popular ones which could be used in the making of legends and mythology in ancient and medieval times.
Part I

Initial Elements of Türkic Alphabet  
The line, angle, triangle, square, curved line, semicircle and circle are the main geometric figures used in Türkic script. Line and angle (curved line and semicircle) underlie more complex entitles as triangle, square, and circle.4
Symmetry, reflection, asymmetry, turn, and curving are the main operations to produce the letters in Türkic script.
The principle, when the diverse combinations of two same, identical elements give birth to the many new signs and symbols, is used in ancient canon Yijing consisted from 64 hexagrams employed for divination and fortune-telling.5
The Zhouyi (Alternation Canon) includes canonic part the Yijing and commenting part the Yizhuang. The 64 hexagrams – peculiar graphic symbols composed of 6 strokes (intact and abortive) set one over another in all combinatorially possible conjunctions.



The eight trigrams are considered as half components of hexagrams. The origin of canonic part of Zhou I traditionally bound with divination practice and goes back to the end II – beginning of I millennium B.C. The most ancient palmistry modes in Zhouyi were converted to number system of mathematics-like operations with numbers and geometric figures to “divide all qualities of countless multitudes of things by types”.6
The essence of this cultural-intellectual process reduced to that people determined the simplest components of the Universe and began to systematize outward things based on mentioned initial constituents. We would like to argue that the region of civilization where philosophers organized, categorized, and sort out the world on the basis of two elements (yin-yang), could produce its own peculiar alphabetical system. This process logically bound with common basic tendency of development of philosophy in the region which reflected, for example, in Taoism, when Taoist alchemists, searching for elixir of life, were trying to produce pure substances.



The Türkic language(s) subdued to strong dual system of vowel and consonants harmony (soft/hard, open/close, voiced/surd) and it could influence [philosophers] to produce alphabet based on two elements system. The dual system could be observed even in words meant contrary kinds of things: aca ‘–’ / ‘>’ eçi, aγ|qa ‘–’ / ‘>’ öge, aba ‘–’ / ‘>’ apa – an older brothers and sisters from paternal [‘–’] and maternal sides [‘>’]. As appears from the above, here we can pose a question about strict, literal sense of the words ‘yin and ‘yang. It could be connected with ene/ana [variation ini/ïnï (?)]7
 mother/father (?), female/male (?). Samples from Türkic epitaphs of ~731 A. D.: ‘’ inijegün – ‘junior kin’ [from maternal side] (jegen – modern nephew from female’s side), ini eçi – ‘old and little brothers’ [from maternal side]. On the etymology of the word “Taiji” see below: Part II, Ïrq Bitik. Thus Türkic alphabet is the result of combinations of two initial elements extracted from words and connected to language.



Graphic Affixment of Türkic Letters to Türkic Language(s)
The letters of Türkic are reflected common features of Türkic language(s) and probably dialectic differences and inner structure of script closely coupled with particular qualities of Türkic language(s).


 As table 3 shows, letters O/U and Ö/Ü are reflected “proto-Türkic” language, as for letters A/Ä and Ï/I, they also indicate gradation of slender and broad, anterior and posterior vowels described first by W. Radloff:8 al ~ ïl ~ il ‘front’, ana ~ enä ‘mother’, ẹ(r)- ~ i(r)- ‘[to] be’, aq- ~ ïq- ‘flow’, te- ~ ti- ‘speak’, bič- ~ piči- ‘cut’ – bïčaq ‘knife’, bučuq ‘half’, taš//daš ~ tïš//dïš ‘outside’, jaŋï ~ jeni ‘new’ ect.9  The Türkic inscriptions of VII-IX A.D. belong to different Türkic peoples, bearers of j-language (Oquz, Qïpçaq: ajaq ‘foot’, qoj- ‘put’), d-language (Uigur: adaq, qod-), z-language (Kyrgyz: azaq, qoz-). Meanwhile the language of Türkic inscriptions written by linearly-angular script is language of super-dialectical literary standard which allows phonetically-morphologic variations;10 there are also such phonetic phenomena which do not depend on positional or phonetic conditions: parallel usage of: i ~ ẹ; s ~ š, š ~ s; lt ~ ld, rt ~ rd, nt ~ nd, nk ~ ng; b ~ m.11



Table 4

These phonetic phenomena are taken into consideration in the Türkic script. The parallel vowels and consonants are reflected the internal structure of Türkic language(s) and these interconnections between parallel letters mean the local origin of the script and its subordination to dual elements’ system [tables 3, 4].
The nj case considered here in connection with theory of A. von Gaben [table 5].12



Table 5

The rest letters are also made by usage of line and angle (with curved clones) sometimes with additional element – dot, which probably symbolized human being. The comparison with other hypotheses brings confirmable result, when explanations of origin of the letters of Türkic alphabet from Semitic one or/and from ideography and pictography suggest the graphic similarities and resemblances between prototypes and letters of Türkic alphabet, but do not mean internal connections between letters bound by their dual parallel usage in Türkic language(s) [tables 7].


Three ‘Peculiar’ Letters

There are three peculiar letters called by Turkologists as syllabic: oq/uq ~ qo/qu; ök/ük ~ kö/kü; ïq/qï. They recognized as additional; A. M. Scherbak supposed that “creator of runic script… introduced [them] for increasing elements of cryptography”. They do not mean syllable always; sometimes they written with corresponding vowels. Scherbak  called these letters as pseudo- syllabic.13
 The extraction of these letters and probably consonant diphthongs (lt, nt~nd, ) could be connected to Chinese hieroglyphic script.
Taking into consideration that two first letters resembles wide-spread masculine and feminine symbols, we supposed their meaning and linked them to paternal and maternal sides in both divine and laity [see: table 6]. An existence of celestial bless boon ‘qut’ should be reflected and duplicated by similar terrestrial blessing, which is probably ‘qït’.
It is possible version found by logical way described below; there is a name from Uigur juridical documents: Qïtï Qara,14 which probably means ‘pure blessing of Umaj (Earth)’. Among Türks there is different reading of this letter: ‘qïv’/’qïb’. Thus dual qut qïv – usually translated as ‘happiness, well-being, blessing’, should be translated as ‘dual grace’ [from (late Teŋir?)/Heavens and Umaj/Earth]. Ethnonim Qïbçaq originally meant ‘bearer of qïb (qïvqït) [Umaj’s grace]’; the real name of them was ‘sir’ and Tonjukuk, representative of conjugal qatun’s side from aşïde clan, was belonged to them. The Qypçaq left after themselves a great number of stone female statues (kamennye baby) probably served for cult of Umaj in Pontic steppe. The word qïb gave birth to “revision” of reading of ‘oq/uq ~ qo/qu’ letter; they began to read it as qub, and the Quban/Quman (Cuman) are ‘bearers of qut/qub/qum [Teŋir’s grace]. The name of the wife of atabek Mohammed ibn Ildegiz (XII A. D.) was Qubtuba-Qatun.15
Taking into consideration the name of her son Qutluq Ïnanç ‘Blessed Trust’ or ‘Ïnanç (trustee) with celestial grace’, the name Qubtuba-Qatun translated as ‘qatun gave birth to [one who has] celestial grace’.



Table 6

Most likely Kök tied with ‘pair grace’; the syllable itself is elemental of ‘paired’ words: köz – [two] eye(s); kök – dual colour (blue/green); köküz – [two] breast; köt – seat [two thighs]; köt – genitals of both male and female in Kyrgyz; ökkö – two [together] in Kyrgyz. Flag of the medieval Türks, bearers of qut – celestial grace, was blue; flag of the Kyrgyz, bearers of qït – terrestrial grace, was green. The Kyrgyz get Umaj’s blessing through marriage of Chinese commander Li Lin to daughter of Jui-di-heu, Hsiung-nu shanyü; he was appointed to head the Kyrgyz in 99 B. C.






Part II
The immediate proximity to China or/and Taoist influence on Türks could explain the hypothesis of origin of Türkic linearly-angular script, but there are evidences of existence of some ties between nomadic [Türkic] world and Shan-Ying and Zhou cultures. One is the spread of Karasuk culture (Bronze Age’s of pastoralists) which is genetically close to these cultures. Another one is the tradition of the binary ‘religion and power’ among [Türkic] nomads related to structure of Yijing hexagrams. To find evidences in favour of the origin of Türkic script from Zhou tradition, scientific methods require to trace its development between the period of Zhou and the period of documentally dated monuments of the script (at least VII A. D.). In frameworks of the article, we shortly tried to establish this connection through Karasuk (XIII – VII B. C.) → culture of “early nomads” (VII – III B. C.) → Hsiung-nu epoch → the Türks.
There are a lot of literature on origin and spread of Karasuk culture16 and we would like to concentrate on similarities between world outlook of Türkic nomads and Shan-Ying and Zhou pastoralists. We would like to show some similarities between two main symbols which could make such links: Taiji and yin-yang. 1) Taiji, in Chinese art, the symbol of the Great Absolute. It consists of a curved line bisecting a circle, one half of which is red and the other black. Taiji is the starting-point, which was also the finishing-point, of a cyclic cosmic process. 2) Yin-yang are two cosmic contrary powers which synthesis gives birth to all existing. Their relativity and inseparability are symbolized by the inclusion, in the Chinese yin-yang symbol, of a small portion of each within the other. Here we concentrated on finding some characteristics of Türkic culture which show the idea of the balanced division and the idea of numerical order originated from that balance and its influences on picturing and constructing outward thing by the Türks. Second part of the article is in searching ethos17 of the Türkic culture.
The Scytho-Siberian Animal Style

The animal style typical for Karasuk culture. The goats – symbols of [middle] world are used as top of bronze daggers. The “early nomads” inherited many characteristics of the Karasuk culture. One can surmise that the idea about Taiji resulted from the idea of yin-yang (but it must not be ruled out that both matters could develop simultaneously). The dual principles of male and female beginnings are spread widely among different civilizations. After division into two initial elements, the next question has arisen was: “who divided them?” The image of such divider is the mainstream of so called “Scytho-Siberian animal style” [table 8]. There are many interpretations of the “torment scenes” in the animal style of nomadic art. Usually one predator is tearing to pieces and pulling about some other animal (generally herbivorous). S-shaped form of the predator (commonly it is feline predator – qabïlan) is the additional pattern similarity with Taiji symbol which is also has S-shaped form embodied within well known yin-yang symbol. Words ‘to create’, ‘to cleave, to chop’ have one root: ‘jar-’, ‘car-’.



According to Theothilaktus Simocatta (VII A. D.) the Türks “worship to one who created sky and earth”.18 Skies had two levels: near sky – kök (kök çïγïsï – ‘firmament’, kök qalïq – ‘air’, ‘firmament’), and far, high sky – space itself. Ïşbara Qaγan has mentioned about “four seas” lay beyond the bounds of inhabited mainland.19
The S-shaped form resembles the process of making a felt (kijiz), when they strengthening it by the S-shaped scheme rolling from both sides of half-finished felt [table 9 (b) - kijiz]. Making felt or earthenware with its cyclic, circular process could influence ancient minds to factor it into signs symbolized creation of the Universe (about kijiz see below: “The Şïrdaq”).  The circle or/and spiral (labyrinth) is the ancient symbol of the universe and they preserved in the Türkic patterns and symbols [table 9].
Ïrq Bitik 



Ïrq Bitik – the Türkic divination book, it is considered that it has 65 parables. It almost equals to 64 hexagrams. S. E. Malov himself told that short Türkic inscriptions could have rebus, enigma sense, why we cannot surmise the same for long one? Ïrq Bitik begins with the words of Tänsi and three junior divinities which connected to four hexagrams of one kind (one main and three secondary). Two birds in third and fourth parables confirm that this part of the book belongs to ‘celestial’ half. We consider that the first paragraph of the book is not one of 64 omens and predictions collected in this manual for soothsayers. Ïrq Bitik begins from words of Taiji Itself: 
Tänsi män. Jarïn kiçä altun örgin üzä olurupan, mäŋiläjür män. Ança biliŋlär: ädgü ol!20
D. Sinor offered the following line of division of medieval dialects of Eastern Turkestan:21







Ïrq Bitik is written in mixed language, but we cited the instance to show the probable development and variants of the word Taiji: parent-Türkic täňsi tänsi, 2) täjsi. Etymology of the word täňsi is connected with its ‘balance, equal’ meaning; the word could be divided into two parts täň – ‘equal, balance’; as for affix ‘-si’, it is better to ask to speak the Teacher of Türkic turkologists: «‘S’ is a part of verbs, which meaning connected with desire to make particular action. For example ‘suv içisädi’ – ‘he wanted to drink a water’».22
Thus literal sense of the word ‘täňsi is ‘desire to balance’ or ‘[someone who] desires to make a balance’. The word ‘täňsi has synonym which preserved in the Kyrgyz language: täŋir, probably here we have the present progressive tense ‘-r’: täŋir/ täŋer – ‘making balance’, or verbal noun ‘–r’: “balance doer”; ‘er’ as separate word also translated as ‘split’, ‘cleave’, ‘chop’.23



There are a lot of evidences when many words connected to sacral things interpreted literally. It could be reflection of the period when Türkic language was the language of elite and religious rites, which is Shan-Ying and Zhou period.



The Türkic Cosmogonic System
The line of numbers 1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10.11.12… found among Türkic world picture consists of proportions: ½ ↔ 2/4 ↔ 3/6 ↔ 4/8 ↔ 5/10 ↔ 6/12 etc; ⅔ ↔ 4/6 ↔ 6/9 ↔ 8/12 etc; ¾ ↔ 6/8 ↔ 9/12; ⅓ ↔ 2/6 ↔ 3/9 ↔ 4/12, ¼ ↔ 2/8 ↔ 3/12. The Türks organised outward things with definite system based on such numbers and proportions.
It concerns the structure of Türkic state, based on the model of the Türkic cosmogonic system. The genealogies of the Türkic peoples could help to reconstruct the Türkic cosmogonic system and world picture.
The Turkmen

The numeric line 1.2.3.4 underlay the organization of twenty four Turkmen tribes. The legendary Oguz and his deputy balanced their state out to get steady, eternal structure (beŋgü el – ‘eternal state’) similar with universal one. This numeric line also shows the subordination  order in their state: 1 → ½ → ⅓ → ¼ (direction of subjection). Four tribes (Qayi, Qajat, Alqaraulï, Qaraujlï) of one branch subordinates to branch head (Kün) = [¼], three branches (Kün, Aj, Julduz) subdue to wing head (Buzuq) = [⅓], two wings (Buzuq and Uçuq) are under the One (Oγuz Qaγan) = [½]. All this system reflected in the genealogy of the Turkmen written by Rashid al-Din Fazlulah Hamadani. According to the Persian historian Rashid al-Din, the Turkmen had following structure [table 11]. 
The ‘names’ (epithets?) of six sons grouped into two wings: Buzuq (cosmic) and Uçuq (earthly) are forming dual structure – symmetric and reflective. The ‘names’ of three older sons of Oγuz Qaγan are: Kün Qan, Aj Qan, and Julduz Qan. Kün – ‘sun’, Aj – ‘moon’, and Julduz – ‘star’ are celestial origin. The ‘names’ of three little sons: Kök Qan, Tak Qan, and Deniz Qan are terrestrial ones: Kök – ‘[blue] sky’, Tak – ‘mount’ [taγ], and Deniz – ‘sea’, ‘ocean’. Heavens (right wing) are superior to Earth (left wing). 
Their oŋgons can describe us following picture of the Universe. The oŋgon of these six branches are belonging to different ‘substances’. The word oŋgon probably comes from – ‘lot, destiny, fate’.24
The following branches had ‘heavenly’ oŋgon: Kün Qan – ‘white falcon’, Aj Qan – ‘eagle’, Julduz Qan – tauşandil – ‘eagle for hunting for hares’, Kök Qan – ‘merlin’, and Deniz Qan – ‘red-footed falcon’. But one branch has oŋgon of earthly origin: Tak Qan’s oŋgon is goat.25
These six ‘names’ now picturing structures of two triads: right triad is cosmic, left triad is earthy. These triads symmetric with two reflections on both ends: the STAR – Julduz is reflection of the SUN – Kün, and the SEA – Deniz is opposite to the SKY– Kök.





Table 11



The ‘genealogical’ structure of the Turkmen tells us the representations of the Türks about the nature. Sun, moon, and stars are astronomical bodies. The [blue] sky (atmosphere), mount (land, continent), and sea are constituted the Earth (Umaj). Umaj in Türkic is placenta, afterbirth enveloped a Man.  A dual similarity is clear: sun ↔ star, sky ↕ sea.



The Selçük dynasty was from Qïnïq tribe, Deŋiz branch. Selçük means ‘little river’, see: ‘subï seläŋä ermiş’ – “Selenga (river in Mongolia) was their water” (Mojun-Çur inscription);26  sel-äŋä means ‘river-mother’. There was atabek in the late Selçük period – Shems al-Din Ildegiz (531[1136]--570[1174]). Ildegiz is Il-deŋiz (‘state-ocean’); ‘-ŋ’ is often reproduced as ‘-g’ in Arabic script, for example Moŋol → Mogol.
Six ‘sons’ of Oγuz Qaγan are eating him at all-Turkmen councils (şölen); each one has his own portion of the bull. It probably means that they consist of some part of their ‘father’. Both shoulders, both haunches, both sides of the bull are eaten by branches with celestial oŋgons and spinal column was given to Tak Qan’s branch. Levels of the Turkmen genealogic structure increases from one source and so forth: 1.2.3.4; one ancestor (source of origin) → Oγuz Qaγan; two wings (balance of contrasts; right/left) → Buzuq/Uçuq; three branches → Kün, Aj, Julduz; four tribes → Qayi, Qajat, Alqaraulï, Qaraujlï etc. 
Rashid al-Din wrote that “word oŋgon comes from inäk, and inäk means ‘blessed’ in Türkic, because they say «inäk bulsun» i.e. be blessed”. ‘Inäk’ also means ‘cow’; the Kyrgyz also consider that they are descendant of one deity and cow. ‘Inäk’ is ‘female tortoise’ – tortoise-shells used in the ancient practice of divination. Both words resembles ‘inä’ – ‘mother’. Thus ‘in’ means something female, maternal. Oγuz itself means ‘bull’ (öküz, ögüz); ögüz probably comes from ‘ög’ – “mind, knowledge, thought” because ‘–z’ is not word-formative, derivational suffix, but plural affix (or duality’s affix). Probably his name tells us the story about the origin of the Universe when it was division of Oγuz Qaγan into two contraries (Buzuq – right wing/Uçuq – left one). The name itself of right and left halves – ‘wing’ –  belongs to celestial one. The word ‘wing’ – ‘qanat’ could be divided into two parts ‘qan’ – ‘khan’ and ‘at’ – ‘horse’ or ‘name’. It could give birth to additional sacral and meanings.
The Oγuz Qaγan gave a bow (semicircle which is curved angle – ‘bozuq’) to three older sons of right wing, and three arrows to three little sons of left wing (‘line and angle’ or most likely triangle) with words: “Since the way of right hand is higher, I gave them the bow, which [equals] to Padishah’s degree; as for arrows, which [equals] Messenger’s degree, I gave it to those, who are from left wing.” In accordance with it, he assigned to them all pastures of right and left wings and ordered: “A throne of sovereign belongs to Bozuq branch; if after me [my] old son Kün be alive – all would proceed to him, otherwise – to second son Aj Semicircle is the half of circle – symbol of Heavens, and angle or triangle is the half of square – symbol of Earth. Semicircle and triangle symbolized the half of visible sky and thereafter [according to balance] the half of earth. Because of the legend about origin of tribal structure of the Turkmen we named the primary elements of the script as ‘Buzuq’ and secondary ones as ‘Uçuq’ [table 1].
It is significant to mark that names, titles, epithets’ list of Türkic ancestors (legendary or real) contain determinant things of Türkic cosmologic order. Twelve tribes of right wing of the Turkmen symbolize twelve year circle and twelve tribes of left wing – twelve months. Could we suggest the same for 24 tribes of Hsiung-nu?
It is reasonable that such kind of sequences modeled from the highest divine order or by the divine’s order. Even in this late legend influenced by Islam, it contains the history that the order was introduced by a certain Er-Jangikent Ïrqïl khwaja who was deputy of Oγuz Qaγan. By that period khwajas, linked with Heavens (or/and with world of ancestors worshiped by Türks) by golden chain of selsela, became divine patrons of many ruling courts of Türkic peoples. The Kyrgyz, another one Türkic people, were presented the divine structure owing to Sufi order Ïşqïyya. Imam Ibrahim Sultan Zarandish, while struggling against Qara-Qïtajs, appointed sons of Ana-l Khakk27  as sardars [commanders] of two wings of the Kyrgyz, Lur khan (left wing) and Lur buzurg (right wing) in 1127. His late successor Mir Jalil sayyed (posterior head of Sufi order Ïşqïyya), sheikh of city Şïrkend, descendant of Imam Ibrahim, son of Jalal al-Din constituted the structure of the Kyrgyz el.
Both legends constructed by one model. Holy ancestor and initiator of the way (Oγuz Qaγan and Imam Ibrahim) structured main rules and organized two wings: Oγuz Qaγan → Bozuq and Uçuq; Imam Ibrahim (Ana-l Khakk?) → Lur khan and Lu buzurg. Their deputies: [Oγuz Qaγan’s] Er-Jangikent Ïrqïl khwaja and [Imam Ibrahim’s] Mir Jalil sayyed constituted the rest structure of the Turkmen and of the Kyrgyz putting them in universal order, bringing them a word of God.
The Kyrgyz
The genealogic structure of the Kyrgyz is also subordinated to cosmic order, but more complicated. It is difficult to decide if it was a union of two formerly separated els or/and very complicated cosmic order and calendar. According to Majmu at-Tavarih (by mullah Saif al-Din Akhsikenti in Tajik language in XVI A.D.),28  possible elteres (or eletmiş)29 Aq Timur Qïpçaq and his seven sons was the first who embarked on the path of spiritual perfection in committed legend, i.e. accepted the divine order. Mullah Saif al-Din coded within text the origin of that celestial scheme reflected in the Kyrgyz el’s structure. The names of his seven (3+4=7) sons: Daulati Jar, Khuda Jar, Berdï, Ali Jar, Musa Jar, Isa Jar, Tule Jar, are code which could be red as: “State was Given by God, Ali,30 Musa, Isa Asked”; daulat –Persian ‘state’, Khuda – Persian ‘God’, berdï – Türkic ‘gave’, jar – Persian ‘friend’, tule – Kyrgyz (tülöö) ‘entreaty’, ‘[pleading] sacrifice’.
The Kyrgyz have got two wings: Aq Oγul [right wing] and Qu Oγul Sol [left wing]. They descendants of Ana-l Khakk: Aq Oγul ibn Boz Oγlan ibn Köktemiş ibn Dolon etc [20]; Qu Oγul ibn Sarï Buγa bij ibn Lakla-k bij ibn Atan etc [24]. According to traditional genealogy the Kyrgyz have three wings, which exist indeed: the ancestor is Dolon bij who has three sons: Aq uul, Quu uul, and Qïzïl uul [3]. Fourth father of Aq Oγul is Dolon, and fourth father of Qu Oγul is Atan; literal meaning of Atan is “your father”. 
The next after Aq Timur Qïpçaq with his seven sons [7], who came to “show his devotion” [to divine order] was Aq uul. Aq Oγul had two sons: Otuz Oγul and Salusbek Bulγaçï [2]. Sons of Bulγaçï: Boston, Tejit, Coo Kesek, Döölös, Qïdïr shah, Qaŋdï [6]. Otuz Oγul had four sons: Adine, Muŋkuş, Qarabaγïş, Taγai [4]. Taγai had six sons: Qojlon, Qïlcïr, Boγoston, Döölös, Qaraçoro [6]. Otuz Oγul and Taγai branches together equal ten [10]. After Taγai Mir Jalil went to the land of Qu Oγul who asked a pray from sayyed. Qu Oγul Sol had six sons: Basïz, Quşçï, Munduz, Çoŋ Baγïş, Saru, Suncek Qïtaj bahadur — they stopped in the house of Lalïm Quşçï. All of them came out to meet the guest and together entered to dwelling of Lalïm Quşçï. Bürkütçi, Kepekçi, Quçşçï [3] served them. Bürkütçi and Quçşçï celestial oŋgons similar with the Turkmen ones, Kepekçi is sea oŋgon resembles terrestrial branch of the Turkmen – Deŋiz.
It is interesting to compare the Kyrgyz genealogic structure with the Yenisei Kyrgyz one in numbers. According to T’an shu: “[Its] bureaucracy subdivided into six [6] categories: ministers, commanders, stewards, secretaries, marshals, and dagans. It is considered that there are seven [7] ministers, three [3] commanders, ten [10] stewards. All those are in command of army. It is considered that there are fifteen secretaries: marshals and dagans do not have ranks… The Kyrgyz sovereign had three ministers: Giexi, Guishabo and Amii bei. All of them managed all state affairs”.31
The el [state] structure of the Kyrgyz of Teŋir Too (‘Celestial Mounts’) inherited all main characteristics of the el [state] of the medieval Kyrgyz in Yenisei: seven ministers of Yenisei qaγan equal to seven sons of Aq Timur Qïpçaq, the rest structure subordinates to particular numeric line which balanced everything. The Kazakh have three wings: senior zhuz, middle zhuz, junior zhuz, which also could be connected to Zhou trigrams.

This is not a Blimp. It's a sort of flying Queen Mary 2 that could change the way you think about air travel. It's the Aeroscraft, and when it's completed, it will ferry pampered passengers across continents and oceans as they stroll leisurely about the one-acre cabin or relax in their well-appointed staterooms.

Unlike its dirigible ancestors, the Aeroscraft is not lighter than air. Its 14 million cubic feet of helium hoist only two thirds of the craft's weight. The rigid and surprisingly aerodynamic body—driven by huge rearward propellers—generates enough additional lift to keep the behemoth and its 400-ton payload aloft while cruising. During takeoff and landing, six turbofan jet engines push the ship up or ease its descent.

This two-football-fields-long concept airship is the brainchild of Igor Pasternak, whose privately-funded California firm, Worldwide Aeros Corporation, is in the early stages of developing a prototype and expects to have one completed by 2010. Pasternak says several cruise ship companies have expressed interest in the project, and for good reason: The craft would have a range of several thousand miles and, with an estimated top speed of 174 mph, could traverse the continental U.S. in about 18 hours. During the flight, passengers would peer at national landmarks just 8,000 feet below or, if they weren't captivated by the view, the cavernous interior would easily accommodate such amenities as luxury staterooms, restaurants, even a casino.

To minimize noise, the aft-mounted propellers will be electric, powered by a renewable source such as hydrogen fuel cells. A sophisticated buoyancy-management system will serve the same purpose as trim on an airplane, allowing for precise adjustments in flight dynamics to compensate for outside conditions and passenger movement. The automated system will draw outside air into compartments throughout the ship and compress it to manage onboard weight.

The company envisions a cargo-carrying version that could deliver a store's worth of merchandise from a centralized distribution center straight to a Wal-Mart parking lot or, because the helium-filled craft will float, a year's worth of supplies to an offshore oil rig. "You can land on the snow, you can land on the water," Pasternak says. "It's a new vision of what can be done in the air."

          Venturi 600 LM      Cache   Translate Page      
French gentleman racer Stéphane Ratel had been the driving force behind the one-make Venturi 400 Trophy series introduced in 1992. For the 1993 season, he encouraged the French niche manufacturer to step up and enter GT racing. Ratel had recognised a switch in top level racing to production based GT cars, away from the Group C prototypes. As a result, the new and aptly named Venturi 500 LM would be eligible for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Again aimed at gentleman racers, Venturi offered extensive support to their customers to run the 500 LM.

Like the Trophy model, the 500 LM was based on the mid-engined 400 GT production road car. It featured a steel chassis built around a central backbone. Suspension was by double wishbones on all four corners. The styling was inspired by the Ferrari F40 with an integrated rear wing. For the 500 LM, a separate wing was used as it allowed for easier adjustments. The car was powered by the ubiquitous PRV V6, which featured four valves per cylin ...

We’ve already seen spy shots of what we believe are new BMW M3 prototypes, and we’ve heard a few rumors about performance, but so far, BMW has kept most of the official details to itself. But according to a report from Evo, Carsten Pries, the M division’s head of product planning, recently spilled some juicy M3...

          Wonderlijke uitvindingen, waarin ons landje groot is      Cache   Translate Page      
Eureka Je wil een beschuitje uit de rol trekken maar krijgt hem niet te pakken, ergernis ten top natuurlijk. Eureka: bak die koeken met een kleine inkeping aan de zijkant en je wipt hem er zo uit met je vinger. Typisch gevalletje: dat had iedereen kunnen bedenken, toch? Theo Tempels deed dit ook, hij vroeg er vervolgens ook nog eens patent op aan. Dit octrooi werd toegekend, en daarmee won Tempels inmiddels meerdere rechtszaken. Onder meer tegen Bolletje, recenter ook tegen crackermaker Haust. Die mogen hem nu dus mooi betalen als zij beschuiten met een gripgleufje bakken. Nederland voorop In Nederland worden vaker slimme dingen bedacht. Vorig jaar werden er maar liefst 7.140 octrooiaanvragen ingediend door Nederlandse bedrijven en 3.782 werden er dat jaar toegekend. Daarmee staat Nederland wereldwijd op de achtste plek als het om aanvragen gaat, binnen de EU op de vierde. Omgerekend per hoofd van de bevolking worden er zelfs alleen in Zwitserland meer aanvragen gedaan. Wat er zoal is uitgevonden blijft dan nog even geheim. Vanaf de octrooiaanvraag anderhalf jaar om precies te zijn. Welke baanbrekende ontdekkingen ons te wachten staan, is nu dus nog even koffiedik kijken. Over toppers uit de recente geschiedenis valt meer te vertellen. Desgevraagd opent vrijwel iedereen met het voorbeeld van de deuk in het beschuit, gelukkig zijn er meer voorbeelden te noemen. Aangebrande tomatensoep Thomas Logan is stagiair bij NOVU, de Nederlandse Orde van Uitvinders. Hij zag er verschillende succesnummers langskomen, waaronder de multifunctionele Quooker kranen en de Airfryer. Bij de vereniging zijn ruim 500 uitvinders aangesloten. „Die komen bij ons langs met een idee. Een goed idee kan worden uitgewerkt tot prototype.” Daar houdt Thomas zich mee bezig. Naar de buitenwereld geldt uiteraard strikte geheimhouding om te voorkomen dat geniale vondsten voortijdig op straat belanden. Over recente projecten kan hij dus niets loslaten. Over een idee dat Thomas zelf had, mag hij wel iets zeggen: „Ik heb een zelfroerende pan bedacht. Een variant met dubbele bodem, waarbij de binnenkant door middel van stoom zou gaan draaien. Dan hoef je niet meer naar je risotto om te kijken. Ik kwam erop toen ik tijdens mijn studie tomatensoep liet aanbranden. Dat dit mogelijk was, wist ik tot dat moment ook niet.” Een mooi voorbeeld van hoe nieuwe uitvindingen ontstaan. Helaas is het wel bij een idee gebleven. „Productontwikkeling kost al gauw 20.000 euro en dat had ik natuurlijk niet als student.” Slimme aardappel Als een idee wel wordt uitgewerkt, dan kan er patent worden aangevraagd. Meestal wordt dit gedaan door octrooigemachtigden. Deze bedrijven zoeken uit of er al patent op het idee is aangevraagd. Zo niet dan stellen zij een nieuw octrooi op. Marco Molling is partner bij octrooibureau V.O. Patents & Trademarks. Zij vroegen onder meer patenten aan voor The Ocean Cleanup, het idee van de jonge entrepreneur Boyan Slat om de plasticsoep uit de oceaan op te ruimen. Dit project kreeg internationaal veel aandacht, maar niet alle nieuwe uitvindingen springen zo in het oog. „Vaak gaat het om doorontwikkelingen, verbeteringen op producten die al bestaan. De anti-lek fietsbanden van nu zijn bijvoorbeeld een wereld van verschil met die van jaren geleden”, legt Molling uit. De ontwikkelingen komt hij wel op alle vakgebieden tegen. „Solynta heeft bijvoorbeeld een nieuwe aardappel ontwikkeld. Niet door genetische modificatie, maar door biologisch te kruisen. Deze is resistent tegen een enge aardappelziekte die er in de 19e eeuw voor zorgde dat vrijwel de hele Ierse bevolking honger had. Dit is een oplossing waar bijna honderd jaar naar is gezocht.” Bambi Belt Een mooi voorbeeld van een Nederlandse ontwikkeling in de medische wereld is de Bambi Belt (zie foto). Vroeggeboren baby’s belanden vaak in de couveuse, waar elektroden aan draden op hun tere huid worden geplakt om vitale functies te registreren. Bij het verwijderen van de elektroden kan de huid beschadigen. Bovendien maken de draden het moeilijk voor de ouders om de baby op te tillen. Lichamelijk contact is bij een baby van essentieel belang. Kinderarts Sidarto Bambang Oetomo zag dit als neonatoloog en ontwikkelde de Bambi Belt. Een zachte band die om de buik van de baby wordt bevestigd. Vitale functies worden draadloos geregistreerd en doorgegeven via sensoren in de band. Deze hoeft ook niet te worden vastgeplakt. Niet alleen ziet het er minder beangstigend uit, het is voor de baby ook vele malen minder oncomfortabel en voor de ouders is het veel gemakkelijker om het kind op te tillen. Volgens planning komt dit product in 2020 op de markt. 10 bekende Nederlandse uitvindingen: De microscoop - 1595 Telescoop – 1608 Onderzeeboot – 1620 Brandslang – 1673 Vierwielaandrijving – 1903 Flitspalen – 1958 Cassettebandje – 1962 Compact Disc (CD) – 1983 Bluetooth – 1994 WIFI - 1997 Bekijk ook: IJsontbijt, unicorn en peerhoorn: ijsseizoen is los!

          MALAYSIAN CHESS: WHAT TO WATCH IN YEAR 2014      Cache   Translate Page      

The rise and rise of young guns...
Yeoh Li Tian
Li Tian’s chess rating can be describe like a marathon runner....steadily moving at cruising speed of 30 or 40 ELOs a year (he seems to be not in hurry) and now he has breaching 2300 for first time in year 2013...What to watch in 2014 is will he ready for 2350 assault and starts collecting norms in the process.

Aron Teh
Aron Teh’s chess rating can be describe like a sprinter...zooom!! (boy o boy, he seems to be man in a hurry) Where is he, ah?...cannot see already. So fast...He gained about 300 points in single year and what to watch in 2014 is whether he still got that inhuman energy to repeat this performance and breach 2300...or maybe 2400 who knows?

Fong Yit San
Yit San’s chess rating can be describe like a middle distance runner....for a few years running at a steady cruising speed but last year saw he is increasing his speed (gaining more than 100 points in single year, suddenly... he seems to be man in a hurry). What to watch in 2014 is whether he will continue progressing at this rate and breach 2250...

The rise and rise of Cerdik Catur Enterprise...
Cerdik Catur Enterprise, lead by Mr Fadli, is no doubt the most active chess organiser around. His tournaments is everywhere...from city center to forest reserve...and easily attracts 200 or 300 contestants per tournament.

What to watch in 2014 is whether he will be progressing outside KL/ Selangor...and also on his political ambition...

His other initiative, CCR Rating, is also fast gaining popularity and now being use by even non Cerdik Catur organizer.

National Rating vs CCR reminds me of MS Office vs OpenOffice...for a long time local rating is being monopolized by MCF’s National Rating...like MS Office, it is not free and of Premium Quality. Suddenly last year, Fadli produce CCR...its free (i think so) and works just as fine and now fast challenging National Rating as rating of choice for local events.

What to watch in 2014 is whether CCR will continue progressing and being adopted into more local tournaments..

The fall and fall of chess centers...
Heard that DATCC has closed its operation on 1st January 2014 and Khairun Nishais seriously toying with the idea of closing her chess center too...it is a sad period to chess centers operators.

To me, chess centers to chess community is like ports to trading civilization...it must exist in order to prosper!...and i hope magical economic law of supply and demand will work and produce new centers...(demand in chess centers will result in the creation of chess centers (supply))

What to watch in 2014 is whether there will rise a new and better chess center after this sad chapter...a new center that rise like a phoenix rise from ashes...

MCF’s official website...
Shortly after MCF’s AGM, a demo or prototype of MCF website is being shown...from what i read and heard about this website, i am impressed but after that silent....

What to watch in 2014 is whether this much awaited MCF’s website will finally be on line and running...

First GM...
There is saying that the proof of the pudding is in the eating. First GM, arguably the most vocal blogger in 2013, championing (among others) for correct chess training while at the same time criticizing other chess players/ coaches methods. 

As such naturally (and unfortunately too) the spotlight will be on First GM’s student, Mark Siew who so far performed within close band of 2000 elo (plus minus 10 points)...not bad but not impressive either...

What to watch in 2014 is the effectiveness of FGM’s training method via Mark Siew’s performance...and whether he can breach 2050 to be in Malaysia’s Top 25.

Players for Tromso Olympiad...
In about 200 days from now, 2014 Chess Olympiad will be held at Tromso. Tromso Organizer is now busy recruiting volunteer for this event and naturally MCF should also by now be busy in determining the criteria to represent Malaysia.

What to watch in 2014 is how the players will be chosen and who will be chosen...is it MAS (Mana Ada System) style? or is it MCF (My Chess Friends) style?... I don’t know and i hope not...what i hope is MCF’s Committee for National Player Selection (headed by Mr Ghalam Sani) will come up with guidelines on the criteria to represent Malaysia in Olympiad 2014. Amin.   

(Well, actually I have a list of players for My Dream Team but that is story for another day....)

The fate of Malaysian Open...
Just like previous year...and years before it...there is always rumours that there will be no Malaysian Open but somehow...abracadabra!...Malaysia Open is magically being held promoting players such as Irene Karisma and Nafisa Muminova to come and play here. I thank God for it!

This year again i heard a scary rumors that maybe there will be no Malaysia Open, and with closure of DATCC ,this rumors might be frighteningly true...

What to watch in 2014 is whether there will be 2014 Malaysian Open this year ( i hope yes, it must be held in 2014 Visit Malaysia years and that rumor will be just rumor...an unfounded rumor...how come we deny pretty, young players from especially Indonesia or Uzbekistan not to come and play here especially during Visit Malaysia Year? )

          3D Printed Calf Feeder Model 2.0      Cache   Translate Page      
Challenge: To produce an authentic to scale model of a calf feeder that was capable of feeding up to eight cavles at one time.
Background: This is the second version of this project.  In the inital version on this blog the student had produced a four calf feeder which was for potential use with a commercial business.   This model had to be produced as detailed in previous post.   This has taken number models and prototypes until the 'four feeder' was successfully produced.  The next step was to change the colour varation, which is a simple matter of changing the print colour and then increasing the size of the print.    This has involved significant testing and reworking to get the dimensions to scale - as this is is a potential collaboration between our school/students and a local business creating something to use with existing products not easily available on the market.
Level of Difficulty: High - this is a precision piece that needs to work to a specific size, be mounting successfully on a model fence and meet the needs of the cow models to interact with.  There is no margin for error and this requires precision, which has been a positive if challenging experience for the students.
Timeframe: Two hours - this has been produced with a 8mm nozzle which is our default size.  Consideration has been given to reducing the size of the nozzle to increase the quality of the print.
Size: This print is 80mm long and 25mm wide.   Crucial to the success of the print has been the hinges at the back which have been designed by the students.   These have allowed the feeder to be clipped into place on the fence.    Students have been experimenting with producing the best fit design to do this. 
What we would do differently: Our students are having a meeting examing the commercial aspects and considerations of mass production, they have identified a potential fault with the design and want to look at the considerations of its use (as a toy) relative to the strength of the print (specifically on the hinge that they have deisgned to hang it to the model fence.    As noted there is a potential issue with the size of the nozzle as well - it may be a print that we produce a higher quality print with my reducing the nozzle size. 
          Mail Woes & Other Juicy Tidbits      Cache   Translate Page      
I was very surprised by something today. I found out yesterday that my FB account, once again, had been hacked. So I took measures to fix that. 

Today I get an email from Google asking me if I'd signed in with a Mac in the past hour. Well, no, I don't have a Mac, and so I email them back and said no. 

So I kept clicking the links and came to this...



Now it won't let me copy everything, but it let me save this photo. 

Apparently someone in the city of Pontiac, Illinois, someone with a Mac, has hacked my Google account. 

Yeah, they've zoned in on them!

I have changed my password and added another measure of security where they have to send you a code for you to be able to access your account. Yeah, a pain in the arse, but so are the damned hackers.

It also gave me a map with an arrow to the place and said it is sunny and 82 degrees in Pontiac, Illinois today!

Great job, Google!

In other news...

I ordered some photos to be developed by Walgreens. I paid for it to come to my residence. Probably won't do that again.

They are photos I've taken while driving out in the country, and I intend to frame them. So waiting on them is holding up a decor project I am eager to get done to show you.

Said package has been sitting somewhere in town for four days now, and no one knows where.

It might be faster to go this route...

I called and was told that because it's between two companies, (UPS Mail Innovations; what the heck is that) it is difficult to communicate, so they don't know who has it. I hope I got that right, because the fellow did not speak good English.

So I Google "what is UPS Mail Innovations? And get this info...

What to do?

I asked the guy where he was, and he said Guatemala. (Don't you know that they absolutely hate being asked that question?)

For some reason, knowing that US mail has been somewhat out-sourced makes me kind of sad, if that's what has happened.

I'm sure someone will email or comment and let me know if I am inaccurate about this matter...if so, please be nice.

I've always kind of thought of the US postal service as being somehow inviolate from the transferring of work in the US to other countries.

Like it's kind of an un-American thing to do. Ya know? 

So I Google "is US mail being outsourced to other countries?"

Facebook's having an outage.

The Silicon Valley social network, as well as its photo app Instagram and messaging platform Messenger, went down for some users on Wednesday.

Some users reported they were able to open the social network (albeit slowly) but couldn't post anything, while for others it wouldn't load at all. 

DownDetector, a website where people can report outages of popular internet services, indicates there has been huge spikes in complaints about Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram over the last hour.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

          Twitter’s new prototype Twttr to be used for testing new features      Cache   Translate Page      
Twttr

Twitter rolled out a new prototype app called Twttr that would be used to test new features to a select number of users. One of the tests on Twttr shows a revamped version of replying thread. It appears less cluttered and better threaded. Replies from the original tweeter are outlined in black and replies from others you follow are outlined in blue. You can also see the original tweet you are replying to, while you reply. The number of retweets and likes are hidden in the thread view and only appear when tapped. It’s unsure why the engagement count was removed from the design but it may be directed towards influencing organic behavior on the platform, in the wake of instances where users are buying engagement. Also Read: Twitter improves reporting options for tweets sharing personal information The platform is also working on hindrances like replying with just media being hard to select and replies being “too narrow” to read. In an emailed statement to Buzzfeed, Twitter spokesperson Liz Kelley said, “Public conversation helps the world learn faster, solve common problems, and realize we’re all in this together. We know it could be easier to follow and join conversations on Twitter, so we’re openly testing early explorations and with this app and continuing to build Twitter with the people who use it.”

A German research team has prototyped an extraordinary heating/cooling system that stresses and unloads nickel-titanium "muscle wires" to create heated and cooled air at twice the efficiency of a heat pump or three times the efficiency of an air conditioner. Crucially, the device also uses no refrigerant gases, meaning it's a much more environmentally friendly way to heat or cool a space.

          Rise of the Mobile App Builder Tool      Cache   Translate Page      

I've been hit up recently for a lot of freelance work for mobile app development. Most are simple apps, needing a quick turn around and a cross-platform solution. I told a friend of mine a few months ago who was relaying one of these freelance gigs "It used to be that you had to hire a developer if you wanted to make even a simple website. Now there are a ton of tools that let people make their own sites. It seems like whomever figures that same thing out for mobile apps is going to make a pretty penny." I even contemplated and sketched out what a simple drag-and-drop jQueryMobile-based (with the new jQueryMobile Theme Roller) tool might look like. Well, I'm glad I didn't invest too much time in to that, because other people saw the exact same thing and went for it. Here are 4 mobile app building sites that I've come across just in the last month. Feel free to add more if you come across them.

 

UPDATE 11/9/2011: I've added Mobjectify to the list having been introduced to it by the creator.

iBuildApp - The first I came across but probably the most constrained to a template. They offer their service for free actually and seems like they make money if you need the assistance getting the app on to the iTunes store, of if it is a mobile web app they charge for hosting. Some how they are also able to build out native apps, again, you have to do the leg work getting your app on to the app store

 

Application Craft - They have an interesting take on this space by trying to be the simplest, all-in-one application development tool. The apps created in Application Craft are designed to work on all screens, desktop, tablet, and mobile using what I assume is CSS progressive enhancement techniques. In addition, they also let developers get in there and modify the underlying web code. The thing is, I think in an attempt to completely simplify, they sacrifice the UI experience on mobile, which is the hard to reach itch that most people have. I'm not really a fan of jQueryMobile on desktop screens, the UI feels wrong. The development tool reminds me of Visual Studio or Dreamweaver, which are not particularly inviting to non programmers. That being said, I'd consider using it and just design for the mobile and possibly tabled screens only.

 

 

Tiggr is another web-based IDE app obviously constructing a UI using jQueryMobile. They seem to be trying to tackle the whole app development experience even trying to tackle data service consumption. So often when people ask about creating an app, they are really asking for an app that connects to a web service of some kind. That's the same evolution that "websites" went through. First it was a company needing a 5-page, static content site, then everyone seemed to want rich data-driven capabilities. Tiggr is trying to pounce on that space first.

 

 

Proto.io - Ironically, it would seem like some of their UI controls are the most polished / most native-looking of the bunch. Yet, they are calling their finished products "prototypes". Go figure. From what I can tell, it's  a really polished experience from start to finish designing and testing an app.

Mobjectify is another tool aimed at the prototype space and provides a hosted space for a prototype to be edited by multiple people and shared via link. I followed the tutorial and also played with the tool free form and found it to be intuitive for someone like me, who knows about jQueryMobile and how that all works. I think a non-techy could build a prototype, but to accomplish the demo tutorial the user is getting their hands dirty with links, HTML5 storage, JSON stringification, and form tag posting. At that point, I don't see the user who could deal with that needing a web-based tool for the easy stuff, so I'd suggest Mobjectify try to either make those tasks easier for normal users, or emphasize the drag-n-drop capabilities more to the target audience (non-programmers or people collaborating with programmers).

On a side note, they did take the initiative to create a custom theme tool before jQueryMobile rolled out their own that looks great and is no more complicated than it needs to be.

Any others I missed worth taking a look at? What do you think of do-it-yourself app creator tools for consumers?

          Undersized Squads: A Tale of Two Games      Cache   Translate Page      
This week was stressful and hectic in a myriad of ways and I had virtually no time or energy for much of anything most days, but I did play around with the idea of fielding undersized squads for 1:1 platoon-sized WWII games - particularly so I could begin learning Bolt Action.

In 54mm, I find 5-7 figures gives the impression of a squad, has a 'playing with toy soldiers' appearance to my eye, takes up less space than a true full strength squad does, and works with my existing figure collection so I don't have to wait to play while I paint up the figures in the queue.

Two US squads (BAR team of 2 figures, and rifle team of 3, with NCO) and Platoon HQ. Wall prototypes in background.
Friday night, I gave it a try with an old and arguably familiar set of rules, Disposable Heroes / Coffin for Seven Brothers (1st ed.) using Scenario J from Platoon Forward, 'Patrol'.

US squads arrived on the table on turn 5. By that point the blinds for the German patrol had nearly crossed the entire table. 
BAR team peeks around corner. Rifle team in the background would enter the building. And be pinned there until eliminated eventually by ...
The German MG., once set up it didn't move - it just pelted the US team in the farmhouse repeatedly. 
Mechanically the undersized squads worked pretty well. Unfortunately, two-figure BAR fireteams go to man alone rather quickly. I think if I do this again, I'd use 7 figures (which my current painted collection supports, at least for two squads), split into 4 and 3 . It could have been the late hour (I started playing at midnight!), my table setup (randomly generated from Platoon Forward), my rusty-ness with the rules, or maybe the scenario, but I was more drained than enthused by the end of the game.

Frankly though, I think it was because I was in the mood for something more beer & pretzels and less serious.

Enter my first attempt at Bolt Action.

I acquired these rules for the sake of playing with others at a (relatively) nearby game store. That my 28mm French starter force has been delayed two months now with no sign of being shipped any time soon has put a damper on that, but I had time Saturday afternoon unexpectedly and I thought I'd give the rules a go.

The scenario is Meeting Engagement. Terrain by Platoon Forward. Putting the squads in line, combined with my peculiar wargame table aesthetic looks something like an 18th C battle at this point.
Squad 'Matchbox' runs from building to building. They would be intractable
Squad 'Airfix' makes life hell for the US squad in the woods opposite.
US squad 'Winter' sweeps behind a hill to try to take out the HMG, but the Germans move to stop them. In a contrived test of close combat, the US squad was destroyed.
The US mortar went to work to rout the Germans from the farm house, but it was not to be. Instead, the opposite happened: they were taken down by squad 'Matchbox' at the end of turn 6. A die roll decreed the game over, but the US had little left anyway.
This had a much more game-like, beer & pretzels feel to it and I rather enjoyed it. The rules are mostly well laid out and drawing order dice is fun (not as fun as turning over a card but more fun than rolling a die).

Admittedly, the inability to split your squad into fire teams felt odd. I'm not a snob about historical tactics, but I like the idea of being able to duplicate the things I've seen in manuals and Ospreys - like  have my LMG laying down suppressing fire while my rifle team advances to lob in some grenades and destroy the target. However, keeping the entire squad together prevents the problem of the BAR fireteam being decimated in a single exchange when using these undersized units.

As for the learning the rules, I spent a lot of time flipping virtual pages (I have the PDF), and I got quite a few things wrong I'm sure, not the least of which was how terrain works with LOS, and not having enough terrain, but it was definitely closer to what I want when I'm not feeling like a 'serious' game. And, rather conveniently, Bolt Action builds squads from just 4 infantry and an NCO so I don't feel the need to rush painting the necessary additional figures to fill out my squads - 6 figures worked fine.

That said, I'm not really sure how I feel about games of this scale (platoon-ish + support).

Even though I have played platoon-sized games and enjoyed them, I very much prefer games like Company Command and Morschauser  w/figures on stands and fielding a company or fielding a squad in a cinematic fashion, a la One Hour Skirmish Wargames. This middle ground often doesn't feel quite right to me but I'll be damned if I can figure out why.

On the other hand, I like a challenge and I think I might be able to come up with something that takes what I like from Bolt Action and DHC7B and adds greatly simplified artillery and armor rules - maybe using a heavily modified G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. as a starting point (in G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T., you activate by squad, but figures can do different things).

Meanwhile, I'll probably stick with Bolt Action so I can learn the rules in case my French force ever arrives.

          Twitter Preparing Changes to App and Service      Cache   Translate Page      

NBC reports that, according to Twitter, the company has been working for over a year on changes to the platform to improve the experience and promote 'healthy conversation.' Some of the changes have already been shown off, specifically a new Twitter app prototype called 'twttr' that has improved camera features. With this prototype the camera can be more quickly accessed from the timeline, and in the camera the user can add one of six colors, captions, locations, and hashtags to an overlay for the picture, video, or live broadcast they are doing. The camera also has some 'smart' features so it can recognize where you are and what is going on around, so it can intelligently suggest hashtags.

Another change this prototype makes is the removal of engagement counts, including retweets or likes. The purpose is to make Twitter friendlier. Changes to the product and policies are also being worked on to improve the health of conversations, including more proactive enforcement, taking down accounts spreading hoaxes and conspiracy theories.

以前とあるWikiにまとめていたものをブログへ移植。

そしてそのWikiは削除。二重管理イクナイ。

内容は5年前ほどの勉強時のまとめなのでご注意を。

変数

変数宣言

宣言

var foo;

複数宣言

var foo,var

代入宣言

var foo = 5;

定数宣言

ECMAScript規格に定数の構文はありませんが、JS独自拡張。 規格に存在しないので動作に明確な仕様はない。

宣言

const FOO = 'FOO';

慣例として定数名は大文字で定義。

関数

関数

構文

function 関数名(引数,引数...){
  処理
}

宣言

function foo(){
  alert('bar');
};

呼び出し

foo();

関数リテラル

関数はオブジェクトとして扱われ、変数への格納も可能。

構文

function(引数,引数..){
  処理
}

用例

var foo = function(bar){
  alert(bar);
}
foo('hello'); // 呼び出し

オブジェクト

名前と値のペアの事を指し、連想配列のような扱いをする。

備考

クラスのようなものは存在するが、JSには言語仕様上クラスは存在しない。

(一般的にクラスと言っても差し支えない)

特徴

  • プロパティ値に関数の指定
  • プロトタイプチェーン

オブジェクトリテラル

構文

{プロパティ名:プロパティ値,プロパティ名:プロパティ値,プロパティ名:プロパティ値..}

プロパティアクセス

ドット演算

var foo = {bar : 'hello'};
foo.bar;
入れ子
var foo = {bar : {hello : 'world'}};
foo.bar.hello
代入
foo.bar.hello = 'hello!';

存在しないプロパティ名を指定して代入する事で新規プロパティを追加。

foo.new = 'world'

ブラケット

var foo = {bar : 'hello'};
foo['bar'];
文字列でのアクセス
var name = 'bar';
foo[name]; // barにアクセスし'hello'の文字列が戻る
追加
foo['new'] = 'world';

メソッド

プロパティに関数を持たせる

foo.fn = function(bar){return 'hello ' + bar;};
alert(foo.fn('world')); // 'hello world'

配列

JSは組込み型として配列型は持たないがArrayは存在する。

配列リテラルにて配列を宣言できる。

構文

var 配列名 = [値,値,値...]

用例

var arr = [ 10, 20, 30];
arr[0]; // 10

変数、計算式、異なる型も扱う事が可能

var val = 100;
var arr = [ val, 'magic', val + 30];

複数代入

var a, b;
[a, b] = [1, 2];

文字列

文字をシングルクォーテーションまたはダブルクォーテーションで囲む

var str1 = 'single';
var str2 = "double";

JSはシングルクォーテーションとダブルクォーテーションではエスケープシーケンスの動作は変わらない。

エスケープシーケンス

シーケンス 内訳
\n LF
\t タブ
\b ベル
\r CR
\f フィード
\v 垂直タブ
\ バックスラッシュ
\' シングルクォート
\" ダブルクォート

演算

var str1 = 'foo';
var str2 = 'bar';
str1 + str2; // foobar

JSの文字列型は不変型なので文字列の値は変更できない。

var ref = str1;
ref; // 'foo'

str1 += 'hello'; // 'foohello'
ref; // 'foo'を参照

比較

==,!=

暗黙的に型変換を行なって比較

===,!==

型変換せずに比較

比較基準

文字列同士でも大小の比較が可能。

比較順序(Unicode)は下記。

  • アルファベットは辞書順(ABC)
  • 大文字は小文字より前(ABC…abc…)
  • 数字や記号はアルファベットより前(123…ABC…abc)
  • 平仮名は片仮名より前(あいう..アイウ)
  • 漢字は平仮名、片仮名より後(あいう..アイウ…亜)
  • 漢字の並び順はコード体系に従う

Stringクラス

文字列型とは別にStringクラスが存在する。

var str = 'abc';
str.length; // 3
'abc'.length; // 3

上記はstr(文字列型)へのプロパティアクセスに見えるが文字列値からStringオブジェクトへの暗黙的な型変換が行われている。

「strや文字列型」へのプロパティへのアクセスではなく、「Stringクラスのインスタンス」のlengthプロパティにアクセスしている。

明示的な宣言
var str = new String('abc');
比較
var str1 = new String('abc');
var str2 = new String('abc');
str1 == str2; // false
str1 === str2 // false

参照先が異なるのでfalseとなる。

var str1 = new String('abc');
var str2 = 'abc'
str1 == str2 // true
str1 === str2 // false

==では暗黙的な型変換が行われるのでtrueとなる。

Stringクラスの機能
プロパティ名 機能
length 文字列長を返却。
charAt(pos) インデックス指定で1文字返却。範囲外は空白文字列。
concat([str,str,str..]) 文字列連結。
indexOf(searchString[,pos]) searchStringで最初に見つかるインデックスを返却。posは開始位置。
match(regexp) 正規表現のマッチ結果を返却。
replace(searchVal,replaceVal) searchValをreplaceValで置換した値を返却。
search(regexp) 正規表現マッチ位置のインデックスを返却。
slice(start,end) startからendまで指定したインデックスの文字列を返却。負数で逆インデックス。
split(separator,limit) separatorで分割して文字列値の配列を返す。(正規表現可)
