GF2 600 - 12 Alton Library Southwest





Alton Library - viewed from one of the many car parks over the road.

On the left one can see the gate which opens onto an area for bikes. One of the metal support posts is just visible behind the hinge on the main gate. The support posts apparently stop gate from opening fully inwards, even without bikes attached. If the gate opens outwards (thereby across the pavement), then nothing near the full width of the gate could fit through, due to the bike holders. Which rather undermines the point of having a full width gate.

The building itself:
- I think the whiter upper window has a blind over it (on an exceptionally dull and cloudy day).
- I've no idea what the thing which looks like a vent is in the middle of the first window under the eaves (but whatever it is, surely there was an alternative to sticking it right in the middle of a window?)
- I've also no idea why the top of the single storey box to the left of the main building has apparently been rebuilt (judging by the four lines of new bricks and much more obvious mortar). I'd guess whatever it is has a hidden flat roof which leaked.

Sedum acre




Sedum acre





Sedum acre, the Goldmoss Stonecrop, Goldmoss Sedum, Biting Stonecrop or Wallpepper, is a perennial plant native to Europe, but also naturalised in North America. This plant grows as a creeping ground cover, often in dry sandy soil, but also in the cracks of masonry. It grows well in poor soils, sand, rock gardens, and rich dirt, in a variety of light conditions. It does not thrive in dense shade with limited water.
The leaves are simple, smooth-margined, and succulent. The flowers are yellow, Spring-blooming, in sprays held above the foliage. It spreads when allowed to do so, but is easily removed as it has shallow roots. It is used in hanging baskets and container gardens as a trailing accent, borders, or groundcover.

La Borracina acre (nome scientifico Sedum acre L.) e una piccola pianta carnoso - succulenta di aspetto erbaceo, strisciante, perenne e sempreverde appartenente alla famiglia delle Crassulaceae.
La forma biologica e camefita succulenta (Ch succ) : sono piante che frequentano ambienti piuttosto aridi, con gemme perennanti radenti il suolo (disposte ad una altezza non maggiore di 20 cm) e con organi (fusti, foglie e fiori) adatti a conservare l’acqua.
Il Sedun acre e una pianta a foglie succulente quindi caratterizzata da una grande abbondanza di tessuti acquiferi e da un basso numero di stomi (per ridurre al minimo l’evaporazione dei liquidi) e una spessa cuticola fogliare: riesce cosi ad ottimizzare il consumo di acqua e a farne copiosa riserva nei suoi organi interni.
Le radici sono superficiali e sottili prodotte da stoloni. La pianta si strappa facilmente dal terreno.
Il fusto e esile a volte prostrato (se porta solo foglie) e a volte ascendente (se all’apice porta l’infiorescenza). Se il fusto e sterile allora e fittamente foglioso (con struttura embricata) ed e persistente, mentre se e fertile (con fiori) le foglie sono distanziate e si secca durante la stagione fredda (o generalmente dopo l’ antesi). Spesso la pianta forma un esteso tappeto (o cuscinetto) in quanto i fusti possono essere anche direttamente radicati. Altezza : da 5 a 15 cm.
Le foglie sono glabre, carnose e sessili. Sono disposte a spirale embricata molto regolarmente e in modo alterno sul fusto. La forma e ovale (pagina superiore piana, quella inferiore convessa), arrotondata alla base (parzialmente amplessicaule) e ottusa all’apice. Larghezza : 2 mm; lunghezza : 3 - 6 mm. Il sapore e lievemente pepato.
I fiori sono raccolti in corte spighe cimose composta da 1 – 3 fiori quasi sessili (subsessili).
Calice : i sepali sono ovato – lanceolati (ottusi all’apice) e lunghi circa 2 - 3 mm, molto simili alle foglie. La base dei sepali si prolunga in una piccola appendice.
Corolla : e formata da 5 petali disposti a stella di colore giallo oro intenso, eretto – patenti, lanceolati e acuti all’apice. Larghezza : 2 mm; lunghezza 7 - 10 mm (quindi il doppio del calice).
I frutti follicoli disposti a stella al centro dei fioriIl frutto consiste in 5 follicoli eretti (lunghezza 3-5 mm) e sono disposti a stella le cui punte a maturita si aprono per far uscire i semi di forma ovale.
Questo perche l’ovario durante la crescita forma una stella.
L’origine della pianta e Europea- Caucasica. Si trova anche in Africa settentrionale e in Asia. In Italia vegeta in prevalenza nelle regioni settentrionali. Meno frequente nel Meridione e isole. Facilmente cresce sui muri, greti, rupi e luoghi rocciosi. Diffusione altitudinale : 0 – 2000 m s.l.m..

Hollyhock Alcea Rosea 9-25-09





Here's how the Hollyhock Alcea Rosea I planted on August 13, 2009 look today, September 28. The seeds I sprouted are an "Indian Spring Mix," which will eventually grow on "tall flower stalks covered with single and semi-double blossoms in shades of rose, pink and white." Can't wait.

HOLLYHOCKS

Hollyhocks shrivel like crepe.

The ground dries white,
so bright I can't open my eyes

I get lost in its thin shadow and cannot pull
myself away.

A man enters through the gate.
His forehead is hot.

Inside the house, a naked baby sleeps with squinted eyes.

A small penis swells.

AOYAMA MIYUKI's first book of poetry was published in 1998 from Shicho-sha. Other poems have appeared in Collection of Linked Quatrains and Poems Against the War: Independent (anthologies), and Gendaishi-techo, and Shi-to-Shiso (mazazines), and others. She was a visiting professor at San Francisco State University in 1999-2000.

Strobotolgical Info: A) Two 285HVs into draped black velvet in the background. They measured at the same exposure as the main light. B) Hair light from directly above and set to measure one stop less than the main light. C) One Calumet Travelite 750 for main light through umbrella and on camera left set to 1/125 @ f/11. I used a handheld light meter to measure lighting.

Sidenote: Check with your local fabric shop. I was a able to get this swath for $4 because it had been damaged. Makes for a great gray or black background.

HANGING EXTERIOR SHUTTERS - REMOTE BLINDS.



Hanging Exterior Shutters





hanging exterior shutters

Adelaide House & Clarence House: Park Road - Teddington




Adelaide House & Clarence House: Park Road - Teddington





Grade II listed. Materials: Stock brick in Flemish bond, facades and return to No 14 stuccoed. Extensions to rear in red brick. Late C19 tile-hanging to rear second-floor elevations. Slate roofs.

No 14 (Clarence House)
PLAN: Three storeys and two bays. Plan of main house rectangular, comprising entrance hall with stair to rear, front and back room to each floor.
EXTERIOR: Shallow porch to left bay carried on pair of Doric columns. Mid C19 Gothic door with glazed panels. Large curved bay window with three sashes divided by pilasters. Moulded architraves to windows. Six-over-six pane sashes. Sun Insurance plaque on first floor. Parapet with moulded cornice. Hipped roof. Later windows on ground and first floor of side elevation. Rear elevation has tripartite sash windows.
INTERIOR: The ground floor front room has a curved corner on return to rear hall. The hall and first-floor landing have plaster modillion cornice. The stair rises, in two separate flights, and has slender turned newels, stick balusters and mahogany handrail. The interior retains early-mid C19 joinery, including door and window architraves, shutters, skirtings, with some later C19 and C20 replacements. There is very little visible evidence of early C18 fabric, although a section of full-height panelling in the second-floor rear room may be of this period.

No 16 (Adelaide House)
PLAN: Three storeys and three bays. The plan comprises a rectangular frontage block with rear wing on N side forming L-plan. Frontage block comprises off-centre entrance hall with one room to either side, and with stair to the rear. The rear wing appears originally to have been two storeys, with a second floor added in C19. There is a two storey extension to rear of this wing, with a further single storey range extending to W.
EXTERIOR: The porch is placed slightly off-centre to right, with pilasters and side windows with margin-light sashes. Six-panel door. Moulded architraves to windows. Six-over-six pane sashes. Hipped roof behind parapet with moulded cornice. Rear elevation: Ground and first-floor windows to the main house are blocked. Second-floor stair landing has sash window with coloured margin lights. The late C19 windows to the second floor are raised above parapet level. C20 brick toilet extension in angle of house and rear wing.
INTERIOR: Doors to ground-floor rooms, and entrance, of main house have reeded architraves with corner rosettes. Plaster modillion cornice to hall and first-floor landing. The dog-leg stair with winder to turn has slender turned newels (that to ground floor replaced), stick balusters and mahogany handrail. The interior retains much early-mid C19 joinery, including six-panelled doors, door and window architraves, some plaster cornices and ground and first floor, shutters, skirtings, and chimneypieces, some with original grates. Later C19 cornice to upper floor S room; that to N room modified.

HISTORY: The houses occupy the site of a pair of cottages, possibly of C17 or earlier date. No 14 is thought to have been built on the site of the northern cottage in 1728. In 1834 the cottage to the south was sold, and a new house built on the site the following year, believed to be No 16 Park Road. It is possible that the remodelling of No 14 took place c1842, when the two properties were in one ownership.

SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE: Of special interest as pair of early-mid C19 neo-classical houses which retain their essential plan form, staircases and a number of original features. No 14 may contain earlier fabric from an C18 house. They are important survivals of the elegant houses built throughout the Georgian period when Teddington, like neighbouring Twickenham and Richmond, was an affluent, semi-rural retreat from London.











Antimano EP - Satellites




Antimano EP - Satellites





Photography for EP Album Cover by Ice Arrojado Basit

Two weekends ago, I had a really awesome time shooting pictures of the alternative rock band “Antimano”. One of their guitar players, Tati, is a close friend and she invited me to conceptualize the art for their album cover and leaflet. They are launching their EP this month, and I’m really excited for them.

Their album is called “Satellites” and as soon as I heard the word I wanted to interpret it almost literally. We did two sets…

The first idea was to capture the band as they seem to defy gravity, like satellites hovering above ground. I asked them to jump in sync over and over, set my shutter in burst, and picked the best moments that’ll make it to the final set.

The second concept was inspired by SaAha Goldberger’s serial work on “Grandma Mamika”. I found his collection quite amazing and knew I had to try that out after seeing it for the first time. So, I photographed the guys on ground, and later went around the location to shoot high-rise building exteriors. Later in processing, I placed the cropped photos against the building backgrounds, and recreated the shadows and reflections to make them appear as if they were actually standing or hanging out on the walls in mid-air.

To tie the two sets together with a coherent look, I applied “anamorphic” lens flares –the kind that J.J. Abrams used on the TV series Fringe, and the same kind of lighting found in the 2009 Star Trek movie. I learned that those flares weren’t visual effects at all; instead, they’re optical, quite real, and are achieved by placing cylindrical glass in front of the lenses. So no one really had a tutorial or Photoshop brush for recreating the effect digitally. I had to base my flares on a screenshot from an episode of Fringe, and slowly built the light fractions on top of it, layer by layer until I achieved a realistic flare. That was totally fun!

So here’s Antimano for you. Catch them during their EP launch at B-side, The Collective, Makati City on September 23, 2011.

thinking about how to develop my 'quick' sketches especially in the context of travel sketching.
These are doodles that I have donethis morning at work on scrap paper while waiting for some drawings to print. I have some trip photos on my desktop changing every few minutes...so I have no idea when it will change so have to work FAST!
Lots of things floating around in my head (as usual) it is just hard to find the time to get them on paper!

Day 43 of 365 - Realizations & Appreciations




Day 43 of 365 - Realizations & Appreciations





I by no means want to come across as being unappreciative of Shelley (the subject in the photo) with any comments I make. She put the pressure on me to photograph her so that I would have my 365 photo, instead of going home and having to figure something out after a long, long day. I'm so glad she did, because I would have strled trying to come up with something. So thank you for that Shelley.

I'm going to write a little more than I normally do, because I sometimes like talking through things out loud... hoping that maybe its a benefit to someone else that chooses to look at my images and read what I write. So here it goes...


When I got home this evening, I went back and forth about whether I should post another image of Shelley in my 365 (I photographed her and used that image as my "Day 37" photo). However, I eventually realized that from a technical perspective this photo definitely qualifies and I should use it as my photo of the day. The process of creating this image, from the moment Shelley talked me into doing it, until the moment we took the final image, was 15 minutes. The reason why 15 minutes was significant to me, was because I thought about how many technical problems were solved in those 15 minutes... and that's when I became extremely appreciative of the education, and studying, and learning, and teachers, and investment of my time/life to become better at photography (at least from a technical perspective). Keep in mind too as you read this, that Shelley and I walked across a fairly large parking lot twice, and drove our cars across it once, all within that same 15 mintues.

Here are some of the technical things that I had to deal with, and what I did to deal with them:

Scene - I knew I didn't have a whole lot of time to do any "story telling", so I just decided that I would try and create a pleasant scene. I saw this neat looking building across the river and figured I could use it somehow. Knowing that I want to use it though, and knowing "how" I want to use it, are two different things. I sort of knew what I wanted, here's how I got it...

Lens - I knew that I wanted the building in the background to fill-up the frame. The building is quite a distance from us, in fact there's a waterway that separates this building from the parking lot we were in. Anytime I hear myself say I want my background to "fill up my frame", it usually means I'll need a lens that can do some compression (a long focal length). I immediately changed lenses to my 80-200mm.

Exposure - It was dark... very dark... almost 10pm dark. In most cases that means a slower shutter will be necessary, but I didn't want a slow shutter because I was being lazy about getting my tripod (I needed to hand-hold the camera). My aperture was about as low as it could go, so the only option left is to use ISO and pray it will allow me to keep my shutter fast enough to help me avoid camera shake/motion. ISO definitely got me the exposure I wanted, but left me at 1/40th on the shutter, which is not good when shooting at 145mm. Somehow I managed to get a pretty sharp image, which I'll chalk-up to luck (because I drank 4 cups of coffee at dinner).

Lighting - I wasn't worried about the light on the background building, it was fine. The lighting on the subject though was less than ideal. About 4 feet in front of the model is a street light (and many more street lights in the immediate area). The illumination on the model actually isn't bad... but it's direction (downward light) doesn't flatter the subject. I could use a flash to light the model, which will cure the light direction problem... but here's where it gets tricky. The exposure on the model (from the street light) is very close to the exposure of the building in the background. If I just light the model with a flash, it will have an additive effect (the light from the flash will add onto the light from the street light), which means my subject will now be significantly brighter than my background (which isn't what I want). One solution would be to put something over the model (to shade her from the street light), but the problem with this is I don't have anybody else to help me shade her, and it's WAAAAYYY to windy to think I'll be able to suspend something over her with a lightstand. So I looked at the ground and I noticed that there was a shadow coming from the street light's post. It was a faint shadow, but it was a shadow nonetheless. I told the model to stand in that shadow to see how it would affect the exposure on her, and I could see right away that it brought the exposure on her down enough so that she was now under-exposed in comparison with the background. That's a huge win for me, because now I can use a flash to improve the direction of the light, AND, any additive effect is a win for me because I need more light anyway to get the exposure on the model to be just a bit mor

What is happening at this site?





The real story has more than six words.

We had just sat down in the shade of an outdoor street cafe in a section of Vancouver that I had dubbed “Thunderdome” for its collection of colorful characters and eclectic architecture. We had observed and enjoyed many of these characters all morning in Stanley Park and along the waterfront in downtown Vancouver. As we ordered, we noticed a man across the street, out in the sun, speaking loudly with a street lamp pole. Not kidding. We could not hear what he was saying to the lamp post. To his credit, it appeared he was winning the argument.

Despite the extremely warm weather, the man remained in the sun. He removed his vest, but kept on his long pants and long sleeved shirt. His long hair was pulled up to the top of his head and tied into a sumo topknot. He had a wad of white cotton material stuffed into each nostril in an unexplainable deterrent for too much oxygen to reach his lungs. Folding his vest, he set it on the curb next to what appeared to be a box of crackers…unopened.

As we waited for the lunch, he began stepping through a series of what I will call “exercises.” They were not random routines. He had done this before. There was a long pole and he had plastic bags on each end with something heavy in the plastic bags that he used as makeshift barbell for increased resistance to his muscles. He went through sets of ten repetitions of each exercise, pausing between each to rearrange the barbell/plastic bag weights.

Crazy street person or a genius beating the high Vancouver monthly gym fees?

After about twenty minutes of this, the man dismantled his barbell and opened one of the plastic bags of weight. Removing a full water bottle, he washed his hands with water from his “weight.” The street was his sink. It was very ritualistic. When finished washing his hands, he put on his vest and picked up all his belongings. He walked down the street about 100 yards and then crossed to our side. Pushing back his shirt tail, he pulled a key ring out with about a hundred keys on it. He unlocked a door to an apartment building and walked in. It is a mystery.

Look closely at the photo above. The man’s chambray shirt has been ironed. The clothes are all new. It appears he had just come from the grocery store. Except for the cotton stuffing in his nose and the extended discussion with the street light, I have to choose “B”…genius beating the high Vancouver monthly gym fees.

The sign in the back posing the question of the day was completely serendipitous to the photo. I did not realize it was even in the shot until I saw the photo in the computer later. As serac said, it makes the shot.

Picture Windows: How The Suburbs Happened


Picture Windows: How The Suburbs Happened



Picture Windows chronicles how suburbia sprawled, proving to be a hothouse for scores of disaffected artistic types and mopey teens.-Vanity Fair

This fascinating study of the suburbs of Long Island, New York (and by analogy, those across America) arose from the authors' daily commute from Manhattan to SUNY Old Westbury, which is near Levittown, one of the earliest and perhaps the most famous of American suburbs. Initially they had imagined suburbia "as an anaesthetized state of mind, a no place dominated by a culture of conformity and consumption." Their research quickly taught them otherwise. While Picture Windows does document a growing obsession with middle-class consumer goods, like the televisions that came with 1950 houses at Levittown, it disrupts the myth of suburban serenity to reveal "a rich and stormy history" of political and social conflict. The planners and visionaries of suburbia, as the authors attest, tried to create a place "where ordinary people, not just the elite, would have access to affordable, attractive modern housing in communities with parks, gardens, recreation, stores, and cooperative town meeting places." Shunning the "snobbery" of cultural critics who deplored the "neat little toy houses on their neat little patches of lawn," Baxandall and Ewen find much to celebrate in the burgeoning suburbs. Most of those who flocked to the new towns had been crowded into city slums during the depression and war; they never questioned the architectural conformity of the suburbs, but only rejoiced in the chance of owning their own brand-new homes, places empty of anyone else's memories and rich with potential. Picture Windows is a quintessentially American story, told with skill and conviction. --Regina Marler

Red, paisley, or creme?

The Matlisse pillow that all are draped over is the pillow sham from my bedding. To the lower left is the creme chiffon I'm thinking will be my sheer.

So ... look at these and tell me which curtain. I think I like the green paisley - the red is pretty but not quite the exact red, of course ... and the creme is a bit too beige for the golden walls (see rest of set) although it does meld well to the bedding.

All sheets are white, if that helps. You can tell in later pictures where I've been worrying about windows all day instead of making the bed.

Normally a Rasta's locks are not blond, but he is a diver/fisherman and thus his bleached hair is a result of years of diving in the sea.

Lethally Blond (Bailey Weggins Mystery)






Whenever a celebrity throws a phone, crashes a car, or kills a spouse, celebrity journalist Bailey Weggins is there to cover it for the gossip magazine Buzz. Now, the new television show Morgue is the talk of the town, and just as Bailey starts reminiscing about her brief summer fling with the show's gorgeous star, Chris Wickersham, he calls. But Chris isn't thinking about rekindling their old flame. His friend and fellow actor on the show has gone missing, and while nobody else seems to be alarmed, Chris can't believe his friend would just run off while on the brink of stardom. When Bailey starts to investigate as a favor for Chris, she soon realizes there is much more to the disappearance than meets the eye, and unless she can unearth the truth, she could become the inspiration for Morgue's next episode.

1930s house, Crittall windows, Chase Side, Southgate, London





The sole remaining, untouched and unaltered house in a row of fairly large, detached, 1930s houses in Chase Side, Southgate, North London.
Note the interesting, original garage doors!
The wooden shutters, which are an original feature, are purely decorative and serve no real purpose. All the windows are the original metalframe Crittall ones - the only one of these houses that still has them!
To the left hand side, there is a very nice landing window: a classic Art Deco sunburst motif in leaded, stained glass! Sadly, this doesn't show up in this photo - it was a dull, murky day in November with a very grey and overcast sky.

As you can see, the house is very neglected: a long section of guttering is missing, there are holes in several window panes, there is thick, green moss growing on the roof tiles, and there is green algae on the render of the facade. Such a pity!

Got a new toy camera for my birthday, GE A1255.

Was looking for an inexpensive point-and-shoot, and after paying $80, discovered that I could set all kinds of manual controls, including white balance, an old-fashioned 'bulb' setting on the shutter speed, and several other little details.

The truly important criteria were:
a) it runs on double A rechargables* and
b) it fits in my jeans pocket (3 5/8 by 2 1/2 by 1 1/8 )

*I'm standardizing all my small electronics on double or triple A batteries that can be recharged using solar panels.

Liftmaster MODEL LGJ Light-Duty Gear-Reduced Jackshaft Garage Door Opener






Light-Duty Gear-Reduced Jackshaft Operator for Rolling Grilles and Shutters Applications: The Model LGJ door operator is designed for use on rolling grilles and shutters, and small rolling doors. Maximum recommended duty cycle: 7 cycles per hour. Standard Features: Internal door lock sensing circuit 3-button control station Solid state control and motor drive High starting torque motor with overload protection 24VAC control circuit Long-life dry type capacitor Heavy-duty wormgear-in-oil-bath speed reducer Prewired to accept sensing devices Fully adjustable linear driven limit switch mechanism Motor removable without affecting limit switches NEMA 1 type electrical enclosure Floor level disconnect for emergency manual operation 41B32 door sprocket and #41 drive chain included Baked-on high-durability black powdercoat finish Approximate shipping weight - 35 lbs. 2-year warranty The Door Lock Sensing Circuit: The Model LGJ includes a speed sensor in the electrical enclosure and a sensing circuit which sends a signal to stop the motor if the door jams, such as would be caused by failure to release the lockbar of a rolling grille before starting the operator. In addition to stopping the motor, if the door or grille is in fully closed position, it will drive the motor in the opposite direction for approximately 1 inch of door travel. This releases the pressure on the lockbar thus allowing the lock to be easily opened. This modification also contains logic that can be used to sense obstruction to door movement in mid-travel. The circuit is programmed to stop a door that is obstructed while opening and reverse a door that is obstructed closing. Warning: THIS FEATURE SHOULD NOT BE USED IN LIEU OF A BOTTOM BAR SENSING EDGE OR OTHER ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION DEVICE. THE CIRCUIT FUNCTIONS ONLY WHEN THE OPERATOR IS STALLED; THEREFORE, IN THE CLOSING MODE, A ROLLING DOOR OR GRILLE WILL "BUNCH UP" BEFORE THE CIRCUIT FUNCTIONS.

Blackburn Buccaneer

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedi

Buccaneer S.2B, RAF Mildenhall, 1988
Role Strike aircraft
Manufacturer Blackburn Aircraft Limited
Hawker Siddeley
First flight 30 April 1958
Introduced 17 July 1962
Retired 1994
Primary users Royal Navy
Royal Air Force
South African Air Force

The Blackburn Buccaneer was a British low-level strike aircraft with nuclear weapon capability serving with the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force between 1962 and 1994, including service in the 1991 Gulf War.

Designed and initially produced by Blackburn Aircraft it was later known as the Hawker Siddeley Buccaneer when Blackburn became a part of the Hawker Siddeley group.

Design and development

In the early 1950s the Russian Navy introduced the Sverdlov class cruiser into service. Light cruisers by Second World War measure, they were fast, effectively armed, and numerous.

They presented a serious threat to the merchant fleets in the Atlantic, similar to the German "pocket battleships" of the war, but in far greater numbers and over 25% faster.

To counter this threat the Royal Navy decided to counter the Sverdlovs not with a new ship class of their own, but a new specialised strike aircraft employing conventional or nuclear weapons. Operating from their fleet carriers and attacking at high-speed and low-level, they would offer a solution to the Sverdlov problem.

A detailed specification was issued in June 1952 as Naval Staff Requirement NA.39, calling for a two-seat aircraft with folding wings, capable of flying at Mach 0.85 at 200 ft (61 m), having a combat range of over 400 nmi (460 mi; 740 km), and carrying a nuclear weapon internally.

Based on the requirement, in August 1952 the Ministry of Supply issued specification M.148T, and the first responses were returned in February 1953.[1]

Blackburn's design by B. P. Laight, Project B-103, won the tender. Due to secrecy, the aircraft was called BNA (Blackburn Naval Aircraft) or BANA (Blackburn Advanced Naval Aircraft) in documents leading to the obvious nickname of "Banana Jet". (Other sources have described the initial project title as 'ARNA,' 'A Royal Navy Aircraft,' with Blackburn ARNA quickly becoming 'Banana'.)


An RAF Buccaneer S.2B in 1981.

The wrap-around camouflage was applied as observers would often be looking at the undersides of the aircraft as it manoeuvered at extremely low level.

The Buccaneer was a mid-wing, twin-engine monoplane with a crew of two seated in tandem under a sliding canopy.

To meet the demands of the specification, the Buccaneer featured a number of advanced design features. The fuselage was area ruled; meaning it was designed to reduce drag at transonic speeds.

This gives rise to the characteristic curvy "Coke bottle" shape. It featured a variable incidence tailplane that could be trimmed to suit the particular requirements of low-speed handling or high-speed flight.

At the low-levels and high speeds traditional bomb bay doors could not be opened safely into the air stream, therefore doors were developed that rotated into the fuselage to expose the payload. This was also useful in assisting ground-level access.


RAF Buccaneer S.2 with wings foldedThe small wing of the Buccaneer was suited to high-speed flight at low level.

Such a wing, however, did not generate the lift that was essential for low-speed carrier operations. Therefore, the wing and horizontal stabiliser were "blown" by bleeding compressor gas from the engine through surface vents.

A consequence of the blown wing was that the engines were required to run at high power for low-speed flight in order to generate sufficient compressor gas for blowing.

Blackburn's solution to this situation was to provide a large air brake. The tail cone was formed from two leaves that could be hydraulically opened into the airstream to decelerate the aircraft.

The nose cone and radar antenna could also be swung around by 180° to reduce the length of the aircraft in the carrier hangar. This feature was particularly important as contemporary British aircraft carriers were small.

The first Buccaneer model, the S.1, was powered by a pair of de Havilland Gyron Junior turbojets producing 7,100 lbf (32 kN) of thrust. [2]

This mark was somewhat underpowered, and as a consequence could not take off fully laden with both fuel and armament.

A temporary solution to this problem was the "buddy" system; aircraft took off with a full load of weaponry and minimal fuel and would sortie with a Supermarine Scimitar that would deliver the full load of fuel by aerial refuelling.

This was not an ideal solution, however, as the loss of an engine during take-off could have been catastrophic, and the Gyron Junior gave a poor range due to high fuel consumption.

The long term solution was the S.2, fitted with the Rolls-Royce Spey turbofan, providing 40% more thrust with a greatly reduced fuel consumption.

Look up, look waaaaaaaaaaaaay up! For Our Daily Challenge - Abstract. Laying in the hammock with small aperture and slow shutter speed I was able to blur the view looking up into the canopy. Then, in photoshop duplicated the image, flipped the duplicate horizontally, moved it on to the original, changed the blending mode to lighten and then moved the top layer to reveal the patterns. Swinging in the hammock for 1/5 of a second @ f40.

The 2011-2016 Outlook for Residential Aluminum Awning Window Sash and Frames Excluding Storm Sash in India


The 2011-2016 Outlook for Residential Aluminum Awning Window Sash and Frames Excluding Storm Sash in India



This econometric study covers the latent demand outlook for residential aluminum awning window sash and frames excluding storm sash across the states, union territories and cities of India. Latent demand (in millions of U.S. dollars), or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.) estimates are given across over 2,500 cities in India. For each city in question, the percent share the city is of it's state or union territory and of India as a whole is reported. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a city vis-a-vis others. This statistical approach can prove very useful to distribution and/or sales force strategies. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each state or union territory and city, latent demand estimates are created for residential aluminum awning window sash and frames excluding storm sash. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.

This study does not report actual sales data (which are simply unavailable, in a comparable or consistent manner in virtually all of the cities in India). This study gives, however, my estimates for the latent demand, or the P.I.E., for residential aluminum awning window sash and frames excluding storm sash in India. It also shows how the P.I.E. is divided and concentrated across the cities and regional markets of India. For each state or union territory, I also show my estimates of how the P.I.E. grows over time. In order to make these estimates, a multi-stage methodology was employed that is often taught in courses on strategic planning at graduate schools of business.

Wendy and I spent a few hours building out our first window awning.
The first stick of bent rebar was the most difficult. It was slipping
out of the C-clamps and wanted to spring on us. After a dozen welds it
stabalized.

The 2007-2012 Outlook for Residential Aluminum Awning Window Sash and Frames Excluding Storm Sash in Greater China






This study covers the latent demand outlook for residential aluminum awning window sash and frames excluding storm sash across the regions of Greater China, including provinces, autonomous regions (Guangxi, Nei Mongol, Ningxia, Xinjiang, Xizang - Tibet), municipalities (Beijing, Chongqing, Shanghai, and Tianjin), special administrative regions (Hong Kong and Macau), and Taiwan (all hereafter referred to as “regions”). Latent demand (in millions of U.S. dollars), or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.) estimates are given across some 1,100 cities in Greater China. For each major city in question, the percent share the city is of the region and of Greater China is reported. Each major city is defined as an area of “economic population”, as opposed to the demographic population within a legal geographic boundary. For many cities, the economic population is much larger that the population within the city limits; this is especially true for the cities of the Western regions. For the coastal regions, cities which are close to other major cities or which represent, by themselves, a high percent of the regional population, actual city-level population is closer to the economic population (e.g. in Beijing). Based on this “economic” definition of population, comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a city’s marketing and distribution value vis-a-vis others. This exercise is quite useful for persons setting up distribution centers or sales force strategies. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each region and city of influence, latent demand estimates are created for residential aluminum awning window sash and frames excluding storm sash. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.

Gloster Meteor NF 11 Nightfighter




Gloster Meteor NF 11 Nightfighter





The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet fighter and the Allies' first operational jet. Designed by George Carter, it first flew in 1943 and commenced operations on 27 July 1944 with 616 Squadron of the Royal Air Force (RAF). The Gloster Meteor was not an aerodynamically advanced aircraft but the Gloster design team succeeded in producing an effective jet fighter that served the RAF and other air forces for decades. Meteors saw action with the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in the Korean War and remained in service with numerous air forces until the 1970s. Two Meteors, WL419 and WA638, remain in service with the Martin-Baker company as ejection seat testbeds.

Development of a turbojet-powered fighter by Sir Frank Whittle's firm, Power Jets Ltd., and the Gloster Aircraft Company began in November 1940. The first British jet powered aircraft, the single-engined Gloster E28/39 prototype, had its maiden flight on 15 May 1941. The Air Ministry subsequently contracted for the development of a twin-engined jet fighter under Specification F9/40. The aircraft was to have been named Thunderbolt, but to avoid confusion with the USAAF P-47 Thunderbolt the name was changed to Meteor.

The Meteor's construction was all-metal with a tricycle undercarriage and conventional low, straight wings, featuring turbojets mid-mounted in the wings with a high-mounted tailplane to keep it clear of the jet exhaust.

Eight prototypes were produced. Delays with getting type approval for the engines meant that although taxiing trials were carried out it was not until the following year (1942) that flights took place. The fifth prototype, DG206, powered by two de Havilland Halford H.1 engines due to problems with the intended Whittle W.2 engines, was the first to become airborne on 5 March 1943 from RAF Cranwell, piloted by Michael Daunt Development then moved to Newmarket Heath and, later, a Gloster-owned site at Moreton Valence. The first Whittle-engined aircraft, DG205/G, flew on 17 June 1943 (it crashed shortly after takeoff on 27 April 1944) and was followed by DG202/G in July. DG202/G was later used for deck-handling tests aboard aircraft carrier HMS Pretoria Castle. DG203/G made its first flight on 9 November 1943 but was soon relegated to a ground instructional role. DG204/G (powered by Metrovick F.2 engines) first flew on 13 November 1943 and crashed on 1 April 1944. DG208/G made its debut on 20 January 1944, by which time the majority of design problems had been overcome and a production design approved.

The two remaining prototypes never flew. DG209/G was used as an engine test-bed by Rolls-Royce. DG207/G was intended to be the basis for the Meteor F.2 with de Havilland engines, but when the engines were diverted to the de Havilland Vampire the idea was quietly forgotten.

On 12 January 1944, the first Meteor F 1, serial EE210/G, took to the air from Moreton Valence. It was essentially identical to the F9/40 prototypes except for the addition of four 20 mm (.79 in) nose-mounted Hispano Mk V cannons and some changes to the canopy to improve all-round visibility. For the production Meteor F.1, the engine was switched to the Whittle W.2 design, by then taken over by Rolls-Royce. The W.2B/23C turbojet engines produced 7.56 kN of thrust each, giving the aircraft a maximum speed of 417 mph (670 km/h) at 3,000 m and a range of 1,610 km. The Meteor Mk.I was 12.5 m long with a span of 13.1 m, with an empty weight of 3,690 kg and a maximum takeoff weight of 6,260 kg.

Typical of early jet aircraft, the Meteor F 1 suffered from stability problems at high transonic speeds, experiencing large trim changes, high stick forces and self-sustained yaw instability (snaking) due to airflow separation over the thick tail surfaces .

The first 20 aircraft were delivered to the Royal Air Force on 1 June 1944 with one example also sent to the U.S. in exchange for a Bell YP-59A Airacomet for comparative evaluation.

No. 616 Squadron RAF was the first to receive operational Meteors, 14 of them. The squadron was based at RAF Culmhead, Somerset and had been previously equipped with the Spitfire VII. After a conversion course at Farnborough for the six leading pilots, the first aircraft were delivered in July. [1] The squadron was soon moved to RAF Manston on the east Kent coast and, within a week, 30 pilots were converted.

The RAF initially reserved the aircraft to counter the V-1 flying bomb threat with No. 616's Meteors seeing action for the first time on 27 July 1944 with three aircraft active over Kent. After some problems, especially with jamming guns, the first two V1 "kills" occurred on 4 August. The Meteor accounted for 14 flying bombs. The anti-V1 missions of 27 July 1944 were the Meteor's (and the Royal Air Force's) first operational jet combat missions.

After the end of the V-1 threat, and the introduction of the supersonic V-2, the Meteor F 1 was not deployed further in combat against the Luftwaffe. The RAF was at this tim

Wrought Iron Canopy Beds





wrought iron canopy beds






    wrought iron
  • A tough, malleable form of iron suitable for forging or rolling rather than casting, obtained by puddling pig iron while molten. It is nearly pure but contains some slag in the form of filaments

  • iron having a low carbon content that is tough and malleable and so can be forged and welded

  • Wrought iron is an iron alloy with a very low carbon content, in comparison to steel, and has fibrous inclusions, known as slag. This is what gives it a "grain" resembling wood, which is visible when it is etched or bent to the point of failure.

  • Used for wrought iron, as opposed to cast iron; usually a building or structural material.





    canopy beds
  • Beds with four posts that are connected together by rods at the top. Gorgeous fabrics are usually draped over the entire Bed. Beds are available in iron, wood, metal, and metal/wood.











A Streamline Moderne Villa of Clinker and Brown Bricks - Thornbury




A Streamline Moderne Villa of Clinker and Brown Bricks - Thornbury





Built on what was formerly a dairy, this 1930s clinker and brown brick Streamline Moderne Art Deco villa in the Melbourne suburb of Thornbury is much newer than the Edwardian houses directly across the street. The brown brick horizontal lines along the walls and chimney, the Art Deco swirls on the wrought-iron vestibule grille, "waterfall windows" and the rounded edging of the porch are typical of the uncluttered lines of Australian Art Deco architecture in the late 30s, just before the Second World War. Even the wrought-iron house number and the light to the left-hand side of the enclosed vestibule are very Art Deco in design.

The whole house is surrounded by a well kept garden with trimmed lawns, exotic ferns, camelias, fragrant roses and perennials. The garden path and garden beds are all original from when the garden was set out in the 1930s.

Defiance


Defiance



The prevailing image of European Jews during the Holocaust is one of helpless victims, but in fact many Jews strled against the terrors of the Third Reich. In Defiance, Nechama Tec offers a riveting history of one such group, a forest community in western Belorussia that would number more than 1,200 Jews by 1944--the largest armed rescue operation of Jews by Jews in World War II. Tec reveals that this extraordinary community included both men and women, some with weapons, but mostly unarmed, ranging from infants to the elderly. She reconstructs for the first time the amazing details of how these partisans and their families--hungry, exposed to the harsh winter weather--managed not only to survive, but to offer protection to all Jewish fugitives who could find their way to them. Arguing that this success would have been unthinkable without the vision of one man, Tec offers penetrating insight into the group's commander, Tuvia Bielski. Tec brings to light the untold story of Bielski's strle as a partisan who lost his parents, wife, and two brothers to the Nazis, yet never wavered in his conviction that it was more important to save one Jew than to kill twenty Germans. She shows how, under Bielski's guidance, the partisans smled Jews out of heavily guarded ghettos, scouted the roads for fugitives, and led retaliatory raids against Belorussian peasants who collaborated with the Nazis. Herself a Holocaust survivor, Nechama Tec here draws on wide-ranging research and never before published interviews with surviving partisans--including Tuvia Bielski himself--to reconstruct here the poignant and unforgettable story of those who chose to fight.

Read the Foreword
Writer and director Edward Zwick reveals the challenges and personal significance of making a film adaptation of Nechama Tec's Defiance. Among his extensive film credits, Zwick is best known for his direction of Blood Diamond and The Last Samaurai.
An inevitable rite of passage in any Jewish child’s informal initiation to adulthood is to study, with grim fascination, the grainy, out-of-focus images of hollow-eyed survivors in striped pajamas, the amateur photos of corpses piled high in freshly dug pits, or possibly the 16 mm handheld GI footage of living skeletons clinging to barbed wire during the liberation of the camps. Such grisly iconography of passivity and victimization was, during my childhood, and probably is still today, not only an article of faith, but also a source of secret shame. As an assimilated suburban kid growing up in the Midwest, I had thrilled to World War II stories about John Kennedy and PT 109 (Cliff Robertson in the movie version), the leatherneck marines at Guadalcanal (John Wayne), the flying fortresses over Germany (Gregory Peck), and so many more. In feeble contrast, Jewish heroes were the ancient biblical warriors evoked by uninspired Sunday school teachers--Bar Kochba and Judah Macabee wielding spears and jawbones, or young David with his little slingshot.
So when my friend and collaborator, Clay Frohman, came to me with a book called Defiance, I was skeptical. "Not another Holocaust movie," I said. What was to be accomplished, I asked myself, in telling yet another story of familiar and unspeakable horror, especially when an entire canon of literature, not to mention films both documentary and fiction, have already dramatized it in the most exacting and harrowing detail? What’s more, the greatest historians and philosophers of our time have devoted entire careers to plumbing the roots and magnitude of its evil. What could I possibly add?
But Clay was insistent. Here, he said, was something fresh and utterly provocative. And so, somewhat grudgingly, I plunged into Nechama’s Tec’s remarkable book and found myself deeply moved. That was ten years ago. And the feelings I had upon that first reading have only grown stronger with time. To read of the Bielski brothers and their fight to create a safe haven in the midst of a hell-on-earth evokes in me something utterly primitive and deeply personal, a roiling wave of fear, awe, humility, and admiration. And outrage, too--that such a story was not better known.
Here, clutching captured Schmeisser submachine guns and "potatomasher" grenades, were Jewish fighters whose deeds were as stirring and brave as any I had ever encountered. And what’s more, it was all true. In an age when the term "hero" has been so overused as to become meaningless, the Bielskis remind us that real heroism is not the stuff of comic books. Rather, it is a set of decisions, sometimes impulsive, often made by simple men of whom nothing of the sort could ever have been expected. Their story is not simply one of courage or fortitude in the face of adversity; it includes any number of daunting moral decisions--whether to seek vengeance or to rescue, how to re-create a sense of community among those who have lost everything, how to maintain hope when all seems forsaken.

The Catholic Worker Movement: Intellectual And Spiritual Origins






This book is essential reading for understanding the legacy behind the Catholic Worker Movement.
The founders of the movement, Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin met during the Great Depression in 1932. Their collaboration sparked something in the Church that has been both an inspiration and a reproach to American Catholicism.
Dorothy Day is already a cultural icon. Once maligned, she is now being considered for sainthood. From a bohemian circle that included Eugene O’Neil to her controversial labor politics to the founding of the Catholic Worker Movement, she lived out a civil rights pacifism with a spirituality that took radical message of the Gospel to heart.
Peter Maurin has been less celebrated but was equally important to the movement that embraced and uplifted the poor among us. Dorothy Day said he was, "a genius, a saint, an agitator, a writer, a lecturer, a poor man and a shabby tramp."
Mark and Louise Zwick’s thorough research into the Catholic Worker Movement reveals who influenced Peter Maurin and Dorothy Day and how the influence materialized into much more than good ideas. Dostoevsky, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, Francis of Assisi, Therese of Lisieux, Jacques and Raissa Maritain and many others contributed to fire in the minds of two people that sought to "blow the dynamite of the Church" in 20th-century America.
This fascinating and detailed work will be meaningful to readers interested in American history, social justice, religion and public life. It will also appeal to Catholics wishing to live the Gospel with lives of action, contemplation, and prayer.
