Pyrite: “Fool’s Gold”

Widely known in the English-speaking world as “fool’s gold” because it has often been mistaken for the precious metal but is vastly less valuable, pyrite is a gold-colored mineral made of iron and sulfur. Despite its nickname and reputation, it does sometimes contain small amounts of real gold. Pyrite is useful in electronics because of its semiconducting properties, but its chief use is as a source of sulfur in the manufacture of sulfuric acid. What are the hazards of mining pyrite? More…Discuss

THIS DAY IN THE YESTERYEAR: BRITANNIA BRIDGE OPENS (1850)


Britannia Bridge Opens (1850)

The Britannia Bridge spans the Menai Strait, connecting the Isle of Anglesey to the Welsh mainland. Though the bridge as it now stands comprises two concrete decks—one for trains and the other for motor vehicles—it was originally built as a single-tier, wrought-iron, tubular span reserved exclusively for rail traffic. Designed by British civil engineer Robert Stephenson, son of famed locomotive builder George Stephenson, the original bridge stood for 120 years before who set it on fire? More… Discus

Suspension Bridges

A suspension bridge, like San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge, features a roadway suspended from vertical cables. Though an early version of the suspension bridge existed in 15th-century Tibet, the first Western design dates back to 16th-century Italy. While suspension bridges are ideal for spanning long distances, their tendency to vibrate during heavy winds can have devastating consequences. Which suspension bridge collapse—caused by severe winds—was caught on film in 1940? More… Discuss

ARTICLE: TECHNOPHOBIA


Technophobia

Technophobia—a fear of advanced technology—emerged alongside the mechanical innovations of the Industrial Revolution and became ever more pervasive as inventions ranging from the light bulb to the atomic bomb demonstrated technology’s astounding capabilities. Mild technophobia is quite common—many experience it when facing an unfamiliar computer system at a new job. More acute technophobes see technology as inherently dangerous. What well-known novel was one of the first to tackle technophobia? More… Discuss

Wilderness Park Downey California My Movie #3_720HD 1.avi (Audio: Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge over troubled water


In case you didn’t visit my YouTube Channel yet:
Wilderness Park Downey California My Movie #3_720HD 1.avi
(Audio: Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water)

This is an edited version of the originally uploaded “Wilderness Park In Downey California”. The main difference is the clips transition, and I think you will enjoy it more this way. Why did I make this movie? Because I believe that our time calls for refocusing on our psyche, on what makes all natural beings live in harmony. In other words I just took the time away from the modern word to look to nature, and rediscover its beauty, empathy, resilience, acceptance, and above all power to restore. It is the intent of the well known “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”, to restore, to build the bridge between the internal, overwhelming at times noise, and the external, harmony in nature.

Happy New Year, And I’ll see you on the trail!

THIS DAY IN THE YESTERYEAR: SOVIET SATELLITE BREAKS UP UPON REENTRY, SCATTERING NUCLEAR DEBRIS (1978)


Soviet Satellite Breaks Up upon Reentry, Scattering Nuclear Debris (1978)

Cosmos 954 was a Soviet reconnaissance satellite that used radar to observe ocean traffic. It was launched in September 1977 and quickly began to experience problems. Within months, it had deviated from its designed orbit. A malfunction prevented the safe separation of its onboard nuclear reactor, so when the satellite reentered the Earth’s atmosphere, it scattered radioactive debris over northern Canada, necessitating an extensive clean-up operation. How much did Canada bill the USSR for this? More… Discuss

Beautiful Music: Silence — Sarah McLachlan



Silence……….. 

Give me release 
witness me 
I am outside 
give me peace 

Heaven holds a sense of wonder 
and I wanted to believe 
that I’d get caught up 
when the rage in me subsides 

In this white wave 
I am sinking 
in this silence 
In this white wave 
in this silence 
I believe 

I can’t help this longing 
comfort me 
I can’t hold it all in 
if you won’t let me 

Heaven holds a sense of wonder 
and I wanted to believe 
that I’d get caught up 
when the rage in me subsides 

In this white wave 
I am sinking 
in this silence 
In this white wave 
in this silence 
I believe 

I have seen you
in this white wave you are silent 
you are breathing in this white wave

All we hope for, (poetic thought by George-B)


All we hope for, (poetic thought by George-B)

GOD’ biggest gift to us is Hope:
to keep our  unreasonable dreams bathing in light…
to bridge over the hopeless depths of all sorts of crevices,
holes,
and cracks,
some more material than others…
Hope that there is life identical to ours-somewhere else
and that we’ll find and reach that place and then
that we will drain its entirety, its life, as we are doing, for whole history,  to ours…

But, above all, the hope that it will be all forgiven and forgotten,
that HE will be back for us, to read to us
bed time stories and sing us to sleep by hermetic lullabies, because:
We are HIS children, and all we hope for is in the hopes.

Landslide in Italy Claims More Than 2,000 Lives (1963)

One of the highest dams in the world, the Vaiont Dam was constructed on the Vaiont River about 60 mi (100 km) north of Venice, Italy. Two years after its completion, a massive landslide fell into its reservoir, causing the stored water to spill over the dam, sweeping away the village of Longarone and flooding several nearby towns. Some 2,000 people drowned. The dam itself surprisingly remained intact. In 2008, who cited the disaster as one of five “cautionary tales” for engineers and geologists? More… Discuss

Two starkly different teams of engineers were employed to create two crafts for passenger travel, one conservative and one more experimental.

PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE


Planned Obsolescence

Planned obsolescence is a policy of deliberately limiting the life of a product in order to encourage the purchaser to replace it, thereby stimulating sales. Now applied to many different products, notably computer software, the concept first emerged in the 1920s when companies began to analyze every aspect of mass production. Planned obsolescence can refer to both technical failures and to “style” obsolescence. What are some examples of modern products that are designed to become obsolete? More… Discuss

RUDIMENTARY HUMAN LIVERS GROWN FROM STEM CELLS


Rudimentary Human Livers Grown from Stem Cells

Researchers in Japan have created tiny functional humanlivers from stem cells. The team’s success may be due to its novel approach, which involved bringing together several different types of stem cells in an attempt to mimic the processes that occur during human embryonic development. When mixed together, the cells spontaneously began to organize themselves into “liver buds,” collections of liver cells with the potential to develop into a full organ. The researchers then implanted the buds into mice and found that they began to perform many of the functions of mature human liver cells. More… Discuss

The cell phone industry has faced criticism in the past for its apparent unwillingness to institute changes that would help combat theft.More… Discuss

How fast that content loads can be a huge driver in your blog’s success. In fact, a 2011 KISSmetrics study showed that you should expect to see about a 25% abandonment rate after a four second page load delay.
