Octopus steals camera and wins underwater photography competition - SCUBA News

Two winning photos told particularly compelling stories. The Best of Show by Gaetano Dario Gargiulo is a once-in-a-life-time moment where a curious octopus took a selfie of itself with the photographer’s family. Another notable photo is the winning image of the conservation category by Christophe Chellapermal which reflects on the need to preserve our environment as well as take care of ourselves. This picture was taken in Antibes on the French Riviera in the summer of 2020. Every week, activist Laurent Lombard with the NGO ‘Operation Mer Propre’ organizes meetings with local environmentalists in an effort to clean up the coast.

Custom LEGO tree houses & tree house sets

Although tree houses may not be the most practical, there is something magical about having a house in the trees! Many childhood stories, fantasy novels and movies include tree houses, and most of us have considered living in a tree house for real. Today we will explore the world of LEGO tree houses that come in official LEGO sets, as well as some of the sweetest tree houses built by LEGO fans (tree house below by Legopard). For the purpose of this collection we would consider both dwellings made inside the hollows of trees and houses built in the trees as tree houses.

Reading a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book can feel like being lost in a maze and running through twists and turns only to find dead ends, switchbacks, and disappointment.

In the books—for those not familiar with them—you read until you come to a decision point, which prompts you to flip to another page, backward or forward. The early books in the series, which began in 1979, have dozens of endings, reached through branching storylines so complex that that trying to keep track of your path can seem hopeless—no matter how many fingers you stick into the book in order to find your way back to the key, fateful choice. You might end up back at an early fork again, surprised at how far you traveled only to reemerge at a simple decision, weighted with consequences that you couldn’t have imagined at the beginning. The last installment of the original “Choose Your Own Adventure” series came out in 1998, but since 2004, Chooseco, founded by one of the series’ original authors, R.A. 10 Basic Principles of Visual Design – Prototyping: From UX to Front End.

Background In 1989, I wrote an article for the magazine Engineering & Science about the state of technical folding, which, even then, seemed to be progressing by leaps and bounds due to an infusion of scientific and mathematical principles.

In recounting some of the connections between origami, math, and technology, I wrote: Computing succumbed to the appeal of folded paper when, in 1971, Arthur Appel programmed an IBM System 360 computer to print out simple geometric configurations at the rate of more than one hundred a minute. Ninety percent were considered unsuccessful, but it raises an interesting question: could a computer someday design a model deemed superior to that designed by man? Google Image Result for.

Paramus, New Jersey might not seem like Ground Zero for the eco-friendly movement, but perhaps that will change. That's the site, on an unassuming suburban street, of the Zenesis House, a brilliant piece of green architecture, engineering and smart technology.

Designed by real estate agent Asit Parikh, his engineer father Raj and architect Eric Velez, the Zenesis House has no boiler, but produces enough hot water not only for the house itself, but to power their snow-melting system. Best of all, Mother Nature provides all of the resources for the system, which is run through a combination of solar power, geothermal power and rainwater. "What we are doing is using the environment to battle the environment," Asit told local paper The Paramus Daily Voice. Graphics Software.

How To Import, Render & Re-Export LEGO® 3D Data from "LDraw" .dat & .ldr Files For those who are not aware of the fact, there is a huge community of people and WEB sites dedicated to the modeling, rendering and documentation of LEGO models and how to build them. The following tutorial was written to educate the visitors to the Okino WEB site, and Okino software customers, about the existence of this 3D graphics world of LEGO models, and second, to show how this vast wealth of LEGO 3D parts and model data can be converted into a format most often used by Okino software customers.

As serious as the rest of the Okino WEB site is to our professional customers, we thought we would write this interesting and off beat tutorial for those who still yearn for their earlier days of playing with LEGO. The primary goals of this tutorial are: To understand which free programs need to be downloaded to your machine first. To learn where to find 3D LEGO parts data.
