FM 23-10 Chptr 8 Tracking/Countertracking
When a sniper follows a trail, he builds a picture of the enemy in his mind by asking himself questions: How many persons am I following? What is their state of training? How are they equipped? Section I Any indicator the sniper discovers can be defined by one of six tracking concepts: displacement, stains, weather, litter, camouflage, and immediate-use intelligence. Displacement takes place when anything is moved from its original position. a. b. c. A stain occurs when any substance from one organism or article is smeared or deposited on something else. a. The sniper can also determine the seriousness of the wound and how far the wounded person can move unassisted. b. c. Weather either aids or hinders the sniper. a. b. c. d. e. A poorly trained or poorly disciplined unit moving over terrain may leave a trail of litter. Camouflage applies to tracking when the followed party employs techniques to baffle or slow the sniper. a. b. c. a. b. c. Section II a. b. c. a. b. c. d. e. f. Related:  sort

army/field manuals Golden Ratio in Art & Architecture Golden Ratio in Art & Architecture by Nikhat Parveen, UGA “Mathematics is the majestic structure conceived by man to grant him comprehension of the universe”- LE CORBUSIER One of the strongest advocates for the application of the Golden Ratio to art and architecture was the famous Swiss-French architect and Painter Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, 1887- 1965). Originally, Le Corbusier expressed rather skeptical, and even negative, views of the application of the Golden ratio to art, warning against the “replacement of the mysticism of the sensibility by the Golden Section.”In fact, a thorough analysis of Le Corbusier’s architectural designs and “Purists” paintings by Roger Herz-Fischler shows that prior to 1927, Le Corbusier never used the Golden ratio. Le Corbusier’s fascination with Aesthetics and with the Golden Ratio had two origins. The Modulor was supposed to provide “a harmonic measure to the human scale, universally applicable to architecture and mechanics.” Modulor man

Horned Nephilim Skeletons Found Several human skulls with horns protruding from them were discovered in a burial mound at Sayre, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, in the 1880′s. With the exception of the bony projections located about two inches above the eyebrows, the men whom these skeletons belonged to were anatomically normal, although at seven feet tall they were considered to be giants. Burial was believed to have been in the neighborhood of 1200 AD. According to the story back in the 1880s, a burial mound was discovered near Sayre at a place called Spanish Hill. But instead of Indian bodies, W.K. Morehead, Dr. “Shining Ones” is an ambivalent term used for both the Nephilim and their first born. Giant, horned human skeletons unearthed just south of Elmira and Wellsville, NY. This is the article that got the “horned skeletons” story going.

SeeSpace InAiR: The World's 1st Augmented Television We have now surpassed the $150K goal to add streaming to the list of features. And if we reach the $200K level, we will also add an Extra HDMI input and Preset Apps to InAiR. Thanks for the continued support for this project. InAiR brings you the world's first Augmented TV experience With InAir plugged in, your TV becomes an Augmented Television. InAir works with any standard television. When activated in 3D mode, the layers of Internet content appear to be positioned in front of the screen and can be dynamically manipulated by the viewer. The following video will allow you to get a glimpse of the 3D vision of our product, where the interface and content appears in layers in front of the screen. But is is important to note that the same dynamic, layered experience can work in 2D mode on any television. Are you frequently using your laptop and television at the same time? We care a lot about quality. InAiR is a smart HDMI cable. Examples of InAiR content Documentary Movies Sports News 1. 2.

Preparedness Capability Checklist – Minimum & Extended Levels Posted on Sep 07, 2011 in Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Featured Articles Kevin Hayden - Source: The Preparedness Blog by Rob Hanus Preparedness Capability Checklist The Preparedness Capability Checklist (PCC) is a list of functions, or capabilities, that you need to provide for in each of the survival categories. Another way of stating it is that the checklist will tell you WHAT you need to accomplish, but not HOW you need to accomplish it. The list is broken up into general categories to help keep things organized and each Category is broken up into several sub-sections, allowing for Minimum and Extended Capabilities. The Minimum Capability is the minimum amount of preparedness that you should strive to accomplish as fast as possible. This Preparedness Capability Checklist is a work in progress.

Call it a virtual Lego set for taking on cancer. A company called Parabon Nanolabs has recently developed a groundbreaking suite of CAD tools and technologies aimed at creating the next generation of cancer-fighting drugs, and the company says it's essentially a 3D printing system to tailor drugs for treating cancer. Parabon NanoLabs was co-founded by Duke University associate ECE professor Chris Dwyer, Dr. Michael Norton, a pioneer in DNA nanotechnology, and Dr. Cancer medicines, typically so expensive that they might reasonably be priced on a per molecule basis, are the target of the work. Armentrout describes the process as creating complementary sequences of DNA which can form structures of virtually any shape. "We can now 'print,' molecule by molecule, exactly the compound that we want," says Armentrout. Parabon's InSequio design studio was built to allow drug designers to construct molecules in a step-by-step process via a series of drag-and-drop menus. Dr.

11 Deep Space Photos You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped It's hard to overstate the excitement back in 1990 when the Hubble Space Telescope left Earth. Scientists had worked the public into a frenzy with this thing since the 1970s, promising that without the stupid atmosphere to hold it back, its vision would be so clear, you could peer right into the butthole of God. So we didn't have a problem when it blew past its $400 million budget and landed at $1.5 billion, because that first picture would be worth every penny. What we got was this piece of shit: Via Wikipedia It was a problem with a mirror, and it was fixed with a simple three-year replacement project. #11. Via Known in the scientific community by its more poetic name of ARP 273, this is an image of two galaxies caught in a gravitational clusterfuck after the smaller one passed through the larger one. #10. Via How detailed is it? Now, let's view just that miniscule selection at the original image's full size: #9. Via Those? #8. #7.

Researchers develop new cloaking technology Researchers at the University of Toronto have found a way to cloak objects from radar by surrounding them with antennas. Researchers have found a way to hide objects from radar detectorsThe cloaking technology covers objects in tiny antennas that create an electromagnetic fieldCloaking technology has potential uses for the military and for improving cellular signals (CNN) -- There are a lot of reasons to want to make things invisible, other than it just being incredibly cool. There are the many potential military uses of cloaking technology, of course, but it could also help improve cellular signals by hiding objects that would normally block and weaken signal strength. Cloaking technology is popular science fiction trope, but real scientists have been researching and developing new ways to make cloaking objects a reality for years. Most recently, two researchers at the University of Toronto have found a new way to cloak an object using tiny antennas.
