Supposedly, some mother had posted that picture on Facebook. She said her daughter had drawn it and she has no idea why.....

I think NY Lili was the one that came across it.

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position..
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
the wife asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?'
'Yep,' the husband replied, 'in-laws.'

Swamp,

A good list, but the real point is missing.

I don't know how many tv channels you have access to, I have about 40. All the subjects in both lists are to be found at any time if I choose the appropriate channel.

I don't watch anything in the right hand list unless it is mentioned in, say,, the news.

I do watch programs on all the subjects in the left hand list.

So, it is down to the viewer.

The question should be ' why are people so apathetic ? '.

Everything is there. You makes your choice and press the button.

Crazy Contraption Is Part Architecture, Part Water Filter



User Image



Beneath the streets of New York City lies a maze of pipes through which some two billions gallons of water flow each day. Few people ever see this, and like so much of the infrastructure that powers our cities and lives, it escapes the notice and understanding of those who rely upon it.

Andres Jaque thinks that’s going to change. The Spanish architect believes infrastructure should and will be a highly visible aspect of our lives, and that we ought to engage with the systems that produce our water and electricity—or at least know how they work. Put another way, Jaque sees infrastructure as the future of architecture.

Last week, Jaque debuted COSMO, a temporary Rube Goldbergesque pavilion erected in the MoMA PS1 courtyard for its annual Young Architects Program. Every year, the museum gives one emerging architect the opportunity to build an experimental structure. Last year we saw David Benjamin’s The Living, built a tower made of mycelium (mushroom) bricks. Jaque’s COSMO is similarly inspired by biology.

Clocks to read 11:59:60 as time lords add leap second

Software could crash and markets suffer as a leap second is added to world time at midnight on June 30

By Sarah Knapton, Science Editor
1:31PM BST 29 Jun 2015

Airlines, trading floors and technology companies are braced for chaos on June 30 as world timekeepers prepare to add a leap second to global clocks.

Immediately before midnight dials will read 11:59:60 as clocks hold their breath for a second to allow the Earth’s rotation to catch up with atomic time.

When the last leap second was added in 2012 Mozilla, Reddit, Foursquare, Yelp, LinkedIn, and StumbleUpon all reported crashes and there were problems with the Linux operating system and programmes written in Java.

In Australia, more than 400 flights were grounded as the Qantas check-in system crashed.

Experts at Britain’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL) who will officially add the second to UK time, warned that markets which are already jittery from Greece could suffer transaction delays if their software was not prepared.

“There are consequences of tinkering with time,” said Peter Whibberley, Senior Research Scientist in the Time and Frequency group at NPL, who is known to colleagues as ‘The Time Lord.’

“Because leap seconds are only introduced sporadically it is difficult to implement them in computers and mistakes can cause systems to fail temporarily.

"Getting leap seconds wrong can cause loss of synchronisation in communication networks, financial systems and many other applications which rely on precise timing. Whenever a leap second occurs, some computer systems encounter problems due to glitches in the code written to handle them. The consequences are particularly severe in the Asia-Pacific region, where leap seconds occur during normal working hours."

European markets including London are largely closed when the event is scheduled to occur, but the change will hit trading floors in the US, Japan, Australia, South Korea and Singapore.

To make matters more complicated stock exchanges are approaching the leap second differently, with Asian markets planning to trade as normal, while US exchanges are expected to stop activity early.

Dr Leon Lobo, Strategic Business Development Manager at NPL added: “Anyone who conducts transactions with those markets when the change occurs could have a synchronisation issue if they are not ready.”

Many computing systems use the Network Time Protocol, or NTP, to keep themselves in sync with the world’s atomic clocks. But most are not programmed to deal with an unexpected extra second.

Google has even developed a special technique to deal with what it refers to as a ‘leap smear’ and has been gradually adding milliseconds to its system clocks prior to the official arrival of the leap second.

BT's speaking clock will add a second's pause before its third pip.

Atomic time is constant, but the Earth’s rotation is gradually slowing down by around two thousandths of a second per day.

Leap seconds are therefore essential to ensuring civil time does not drift away from time based on the Earth's spin. If not corrected, such a drift would eventually result in clocks showing the middle of the day occurring at night.

While it would take hundreds of years for the difference to become obvious to most people, astronomers and celestial navigators rely on time being consistent with the conventional positions of the Sun, moon and stars to within a fraction of a second.

It is the task of scientists and officials at the International Earth Rotation Service based in Paris to monitor the planet's rotation and tweak time where necessary. Some years the Earth runs bang on time and no adjustment is needed.

Rory McEvoy, Curator of Horology, Royal Observatory Greenwich, said: "Since antiquity the Earth’s rotation has provided us with our timescale – it is the Earth’s rotation that gives us our most basic unit of time, the solar day.

"The Earth’s speed of rotation has a tendency to slow – caused principally because of the relationship between Earth and the Moon – but it can speed up. There is a possibility that a negative leap second could be added to UTC.”

The first leap second was added in 1972, and it will be the 26th time it has been added to clocks in history. It means that the rotation of the Earth has slowed 26 seconds since the early 1970s.

British cities kept their own time until the mid-19th century, which meant that Bristol and London were five minutes apart. But the advent of the railways and telegraph communication brought the need for larger time zones and use Greenwich Mean Time began to be widely adopted from 1847.

The US wants to get rid of leap seconds claiming they're too disruptive to precision systems used for navigation and communication. But Britain opposes the change, saying that it would forever break the link between our concept of time and the rising and setting of the Sun.

Experts fear that once this link is broken it could never be restored because although the Earth's timekeeping systems are built to accommodate the occasional leap second, adding a leap minute or hour to global time would be virtually impossible.

The fate of the leap second is expected to be decided at the World Radiocommunication Conference in November 2015.

DIRK VANDER PLOEG, UFO DIGEST PUBLISHER, PASSES AWAY


By Robert D Morningstar
June 28, 2015


DIRK VANDER PLOEG

UFO DIGEST PUBLISHER HAS PASSED AWAY

IN HAMILTON, ONTARIO ON THE NIGHT OF JUNE 26TH -27TH, 2015


A Personal Message from Robert D. Morningstar

Co-Editor, UFO Digest
New York City
June 28th, 2015

Ms. Anna Vander Ploeg has announced on Facebook that her father, Dirk Vander Ploeg, founder and publisher of UFO Digest, has passed away. Anna's statement announcing Dirk's passing over is linked below:

www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1455699988083016&id=100009290875466&fref=nf&pnref=story

As a colleague and co-editor of UFO Digest with Dirk Vander Ploeg, I feel heartbroken to receive the news and regret to inform all friends of UFO Digest of Dirk's passing, peacefully in his sleep, on Friday night, June 26-27, 2015 at his home in Hamilton, Ontario

This is the saddest news that I have had in many years. Dirk and I worked together for more than 10 years together on developing and expanding UFO Digest, and we shall miss him dearly.

Words cannot express my grief and deep sorrow. Dirk and I were looking forward to meeting in New York City right after July 4th. I shall surely miss greeting him, welcoming him to New York and showing him the beauties and marvels of "The Big Apple."

My heartfelt condolences and deep sympathies go out to his wife, Caroline, his daughter, Anna, and the entire Vander Ploeg family. UFO Digest will go on, carrying on his legacy and the tradition of excellence that Dirk Vander Ploeg established and leaves behind for us to continue in UFO research.

Sincerely,
Robert D. Morningstar
