According to Wegener, this historical Hawaiian surfcraft – which appears to be little more than a flat piece of wood in the shape of an ironing board – may not only be the most enviro friendly surfboard available today, it might be part of one of surfing’s next big leaps in modern board design 전국 지도 다운로드.
It is also a much-needed design, since the foam boards of today are nearly as toxic as you can make something. The recent movie, ‘Manufacturing Stoke’, discusses this strange development, as well as a detailed post I wrote on Green Surfboards다운로드.
The next step is finding the right type of wood that can match the ultra-high performance of the industrial-era poly/resin/chemical boards used by professional surfers today 다운로드.
Phil Joske introduced him (Tom) to a sustainable board building material called Paulownia wood. With a much greater strength-to-weight ratio than balsa, an easy-to-work-with nature, and an imperviousness to saltwater, Tom used this unique wood and his innovative longboard designs to help revolutionize the genre of hollow wood surfboards 언밸런스x2 다운로드.
Many in the industry are taking note of these designs, there is a certain beauty to a glossy wooden board. Especially, knowing that it is handcrafted and great for the environment 다운로드.

It’s a sentiment echoed by many style arbiters: men of a certain age and distinction, the thinking goes, cannot wear shorts and be taken seriously 다운로드. This applies not only to the workplace, but also in social settings.
I find myself battling this essential summer question, to go shorts or not 로그레거시?
Making the article a delightful read, especially when it get’s serious by bringing in the fashion industry. It appears that “dress shorts” are surging in popularity 다운로드.
They are “worn with summer blazers and gingham shirts” or “a suit jacket with a great pair of brogues or a desert boot.”
Then, going back into pre-Victorian style, saying that men used to wear Capri’s (breeches) that showed off the calf muscle, “it was part of a code of masculine beauty to have a perfect leg.”
Thankfully, that is gone but two things that haven’t, and the fashion world considers nasty, are long shorts (anything below the knee) and socks 천하수담 다운로드.
Today we’re bringing you a roundup of some of the great Science Fiction, Fantasy and Dystopian classics available on the web 다운로드. And what better way to get started than with Aldous Huxley reading a dramatized recording of his 1932 novel, Brave New World. The reading aired on the CBS Radio Workshop in 1956. You can listen to Part 1 here and Part 2 here다운로드.
By my count there are over 30 stories in all forms – audiobooks, movie, e-text, and even a few live readings from the author 일러스트 2018 다운로드.
Does this sound like an Indiana Jones adventure or what!
Two archaeologists deep in the jungles of Guatemala are searching the lost empire of El Zotz, an ancient Maya city-state 다운로드. First, they discover Diablo’s Pyramid, a 45-foot tall royal palace that is 1600 years old.
Then, they spot another building but it’s buried deep in the jungle 다운로드. Two years later they have it uncovered (ok, that is not-so adventurous but realistic archaeological work), and find beyond the overgrowth some devilish faces, from the National Geographic article:
The sides of the temple are decorated with 5-foot-tall stucco masks showing the face of the sun god changing as he traverses the sky over the course of a day 텔레그램 파일 다운로드.
One mask is sharklike, likely a reference to the sun rising from the Caribbean in the east, Houston said.
The noonday sun is depicted as an ancient being with crossed eyes who drank blood, and a final series of masks resemble the local jaguars, which awake from their jungle slumbers at dusk 낭만닥터 김사부 무료.
The Mayans sure were fascinated with power, death, and the sun 다운로드.
In a surprising turnaround, the amount of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere in the U.S 다운로드. has fallen dramatically to its lowest level in 20 years, and government officials say the biggest reason is that cheap and plentiful natural gas has led many power plant operators to switch from dirtier-burning coal 다운로드.
Isn’t that great news?
I think we need some uplifting climate change news with all the “doom and gloom” stories out there 슬롯 머신 게임 다운로드. Let’s keep it going.
The United States has cut its CO2 output more than any other country in recent years, with our output dropping since 2007 eq두이노. We are now close to 1990 levels and may be able to fit in with the Kyoto Protocols.
Of the fossil fuels, natural gas releases the least amount of air pollution and CO2 스포티파이 앱 다운로드. It is a homegrown source which improves our energy independence and stability, as well as keeping our money at home.
Coal has gone from producing half our energy to only one-third 다운로드.
** Fracking for natural gas – it is unknown how destructive this new, hugely popular process is.
A newly discovered cluster of galaxies, more than 5 billion light years from Earth…is among the most massive clusters of galaxies in the universe, and produces X-rays at a rate faster than any other known cluster 다운로드.
It also creates new stars at an “unmatched” pace of more than 700 per year, said Michael McDonald. “This extreme rate of star formation was unexpected,” he said during a NASA news conference Wednesday, noting that the Milky Way forms just one or two stars a year 컴퓨터 바탕화면 다운로드.
In addition to being massive, unique, and the biggest star-nursery in the universe, this area, called Phoenix, also helps theorists with something, the galactic cooling problem 다운로드.
For years scientists have been coming up with explanations for how stars are formed 다운로드. The earliest being a mass of molecules would collapse in on themselves as fusion begins. The mass would then accumulate until its gravity becomes strong enough to spin, turn into a sphere, and pull on everything around it, collecting planets, asteroids, and other debris into its solar system 2019년 달력 한글 다운로드.
But, this doesn’t take into account thermodynamics, specifically why doesn’t the star expand as it heats up. Indeed, several half-stars were observed in the universe stuck in this state of expansion unable to contract into the ultra-compact ball of a star 다운로드.
That’s where a new theory comes in, the galactic “cooling flow”.
**There appears to be no name for the theory, all references are to a general theory theory of star formation 자백 14 다운로드.
This says the creation of stars is a lot like an explosion, with an initial burst of heat which then dissipates bringing cool air back into the explosion zone 앵무새 다운로드. In this case, thermonuclear fusion ignites much of the galaxy and begins sucking into the center lots of mass, including the surrounding galaxies.
As the (star) forms, this plasma initially heats up due to the gravitational energy released from the infall of smaller galaxies 여신의 키스 다운로드.
As the gas cools, it should condense and sink inward, a process known as a “cooling flow.” In the cluster’s center, this cooling flow can lead to very dense cores of gas, termed “cool cores,” which should fuel bursts of star formation in all clusters that go through this process. Most of these predictions had been confirmed with observations – the X-ray glow, the lower temperatures at the cluster centers – but starbursts accompanying this cooling remain rare. – TG Daily
A step forward in our knowledge of star formation, but something tells me we are not there yet.
