Concorde question. Hi Stilton, that is a question that we all used to ask ourselves; not having an APU was a major pain in the butt for the fleet, particularly at charter destinations, where air start trucks, GPU's and air conditioning trucks would all have to be pre-arranged. One problem with 'Conc' was always one of weight, (for every extra pound you carried, another pound of fuel was required) so any APU installation would have to have been light, and worth the extra weight.

But the main problem was one of 'where to put the darned thing. The only suitable space available for an APU was in the tailcone, aft of the tail wheel. Now a ready supply of fuel would have been available either from the aft trim tank, #11, or from one of the two trim galleries. (For stability reasons, tank 11 was invariably left empty during ground transits). ) or externally around the fuselage, which would have been 'draggy' to say the least.

Inspired by a blog post to run your own cloud gaming service which uses a VPN and Steam's In-Home Streaming, I thought I could do this, too, but in the browser. With the tech I developed for Instant Webcam I had all the major building blocks ready and just needed to glue them together in nice, useable Windows App. The result is jsmpeg-vnc – a tiny Windows application written in C. It captures the screen at 60 frames per second, encodes it into MPEG1 using FFmpeg, sends it over WebSockets to the browser where it is finally decoded again in JavaScript using jsmpeg.

All the mouse and keyboard input in the browser is captured as well and sent back to the server again. This works way better than it should. Full source code and binary releases are on github: jsmpeg-vnc. Zoomquilt. The Higher Learning. Sam Van Aken is an art professor at Syracuse University in New York. He wasn’t always immersed of the world of art though- as a child, he grew up working on his family’s farm before pursuing his art career.

So, in 2008, when Van Aken learned that the orchard at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station was about to be destroyed because of a lack of funding, he knew he had to put his farming past to use. Many of the trees in the orchard were 150-200 years old, and grew ancient, antique native stone fruits varieties that have been mostly hybridized or modified by modern agricultural practices (commercially-grown fruits are selected for their look and size more than any other factors, including taste).

Syracuse art professor and “Tree of 40 Fruits” creator Sam Van Aken Aken knew he had to save these rare and ancient fruit varieties, so he bought the orchard and spent the next couple years trying to figure out how to graft parts of multiple trees onto one single tree. 273.

Extreme Street View: Google Employee Maps Deserted Island Article by Urbanist, filed under Urbex & Parkour in the Global category. Street View has mapped much more than roads in its, but sending a lone urban explorer through the haunting multistory ruins of a remote island may be one of their riskiest geographic ventures yet. Strapped with panoramic photography equipment, this video shows a lone Google employee crawling through rubble, scaling partially caved-in abandonments and standing on precarious roofs, all to document one of the most unique deserted cities on the globe. Occupied for over a century, and briefly the world’s most densely-populated island, Gunkanjima, Japan (aka Hashima) is now one of the loneliest places on the planet. Side trivia: if it looks familiar, you may be remembering it from scenes of Skyfall, the James Bond film. A giant concrete wall surrounds the ship-shaped Battleship Island, giving it its nickname.

By Paul Taylor Published April 10, 2014 Two Dramas in Slow Motion Demographic transformations are dramas in slow motion. America is in the midst of two right now.

Our population is becoming majority non-white at the same time a record share is going gray. Each of these shifts would by itself be the defining demographic story of its era. The fact that both are unfolding simultaneously has generated big generation gaps that will put stress on our politics, families, pocketbooks, entitlement programs and social cohesion. The Pew Research Center tracks these transformations with public opinion surveys and demographic and economic analyses. Let’s start with what demographers call an “age pyramid.” But from 1960 to 2060, our pyramid will turn into a rectangle. The New Us America’s Racial Tapestry Is Changing At the same time our population is going gray, we’re also becoming multi-colored. But every so often societies experience “aha” moments, when the change is right there in plain sight.
