I once was invited to examine Chinese bronzes at the Freer Gallery of Art. The purpose of the gathering was to develop suggestions for research into the technology of Chinese bronze casting, to share knowledge and to avoid duplication. We were about six or eight, and I will never forget the scene. Most participants were art historians or museum people; I was the only researcher coming out of Engineering. We were all looking at bronze fragments and we all had magnifying glasses, but my magnifying glass was different […]. ‘They’ had magnifying glasses that they put to their eyes and then lifted the object into proper viewing distance. I had a magnifying glass that I put on the object, and I manoeuvred my head into a good viewing position. They took one look at my magnifying glass and I was out. I was classified as an outsider.

Always ok for mnp when we see a critique of the blogosphere like this!

The War Against Terror Unfolds

In the form of a llama.

Llamas are not just for transportation anymore. It turns out that the animals’ blood could be useful for detecting all sorts of maladies in the surrounding environment-from deadly pathogens to industrial emissions. A research effort has done just that, manipulating a rare type of antibody found in llamas to make an inexpensive and diverse biosensor.

1,000,000 MPS

Not long after his divorce, Peter Gilbert treated himself to a new sports car - a Saab 900 SPG, which stands for Special Performance Group.Seventeen years and more than 1 million miles later, Gilbert donated his car to the Wisconsin Automotive Museum. The car survived eight deer collisions, including one that punched a hole in the radiator, before it was parked for safekeeping at the museum in Hartford.

"I couldn’t kill that many deer with a gun," said Gilbert, a financial services salesman from Glendale.

Here is a shocking story of Russian pilot, now living in the USA who was on the air 9th September 2001 and have made photos right from the air when planes crashed the WTC.

He worked at that time as a programmer in one of the dot coms and had some free time which usualy he spent flying Cessna 172SP plane around NYC.

We have this photos today.

Just when he took off he spotted a smoke coming from WTC towers. He was very surprised and headed in that direction

How to reduce your CO2 emissions

One Ton sells some pretty snazzy t-shirts, and for each one they sell, they purchase one-ton of CO2 offsets from the Chicago Climate Exchange.

The site also has some great recommendations (easy too!) for reducing your carbon emissions:

  • Eat meat-free meals every other day.
    Vegetarian food requires much less energy to produce.
    CO2 savings = 487 pounds
  • Park the car for 60 days this year.
    Walk, cycle, or take public transit.
    CO2 savings = 917 pounds
  • Switch from hot to warm or cold water for every load of laundry.
    CO2 savings = 600 pounds
