Bullets, Sliced in Half

(left) 7.62x51mm Plastic short-range training tracer, a type of 'Simunition' training ammo, designed for short-range training ranges where stray bullets and ricochets could be a concern (the whole blue section is the projectile). This one has a radiogenic tracer pellet that allows visual tracking of the round in daylight and night conditions. 2. (center) 7.92mm Mauser - an early German bullet used during the wars of the first half of the 20th century, however, during WWII, it was one of the few cartridges used by both the Axis and Allies.

This particular specimen seems to be a 'sabotage' exploding cartridge, as it appears to be loaded with a blasting cap and a small amount of explosive. 3. (right) 6.5x55mm wood bullet, usually used for drill rounds or for blanks in automatic weapons. 1. 1. 1 (left). .455 Webley, a British handgun cartridge, innovated in 1887, most commonly used in the Webley top break revolvers Marks I through VI.

You can easily set up a new Mac from: •Another Mac •Time Machine backups of another Mac •A "clone" of another Mac (such as those made by CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper).

OSX Tips Setting-up a new Mac from an old one, its Backups, or a PC

•A PC (on Lion and later) Usually, the best way to do that is with Setup Assistant, when your new Mac first starts up. The alternative, Migration Assistant, can be used later, but there are some downsides to waiting. If you have Time Machine or "clone" backups of the old Mac on an external HD, it's usually simpler and faster to transfer from them, rather than directly from the old Mac. Usually, you'll be transferring either "forwards" to a newer version of OSX, or to the same version. You cannot transfer "backwards" from a newer "major" version of OSX to an earlier one (such as Mountain Lion 10.8.x to Lion 10.7.x). The X Lab. Delicious Library 2. Terms of Service; Didn't Read.

Cambridge University Library holds the largest and most important collection of the scientific works of Isaac Newton (1642-1727).

Cambridge Digital Library

Newton was closely associated with Cambridge. He came to the University as a student in 1661, graduating in 1665, and from 1669 to 1701 he held the Lucasian Chair of Mathematics. Under the regulations for this Chair, Newton was required to deposit copies of his lectures in the University Library. These, and some correspondence relating to the University, were assigned the classmarks Dd.4.18, Dd.9.46, Dd.9.67, Dd.9.68, and Mm.6.50. In 1699 Newton was appointed Master of the Mint, and in 1703 he was elected President of the Royal Society, a post he occupied until his death. After his death, the manuscripts in Newton's possession passed to his niece Catherine and her husband John Conduitt.

In 1872 the fifth earl passed all the Newton manuscripts he had to the University of Cambridge, where they were assessed and a detailed catalogue made. See also. Big Think. Top TED talks. You've read several posts already.
