Happy Native American Day!

September 28 is an official holiday in the state of California – Native American Day. Established in 1998, it is celebrated in our schools and government offices, but mostly ignored everywhere else 가면라이더 카부토. Only a few states (South Dakota, Tennessee) have a similar holiday, and there is no Federal recognition.

That’s really sad – we should have a nationally recognized day to celebrate Native Americans 다운로드.

If you live in California there are some festivities to enjoy. San Diego is hosting a series of events, here is one:

Abel Silvas will combine comedy, storytelling and mime, offering an interpretation of Native American history and culture from past to present 다운로드.

And just outside Los Angeles:

The soundtrack of the brooding ocean and the jazz of surf

The Mattson2

 

 

From the Mattson2’s website:

If you could soundtrack the brooding ocean and the jazz of the surf, the Mattson 2 would most certainly be the composers 갤럭시 s8 유심. The foot stomps of a shoe-gazed salty air meets the tight groove and polished shake of the night with each of the duo’s multi-layered tracks.

Tighten that tie, turn up the volume, dig your toes in the sand and soak in the shimmery whitewash of the Mattson 2 보컬로이드 유니.

 

A sampler with five more songs.

 

They have two albums out, Introducing the Mattson2 (2009) and Feeling Hands (2011) 다운로드.

Final report issued on San Onofre Nuclear Plant – Edison not to blame, it was a Mitsubishi computer glitch

The final review of the radiation leak at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Stations (SONGS) has been completed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 다운로드. Among its findings are that Southern California Edison (SCE) responded appropriately to the issue, while Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, a company based in Japan, is to blame 다운로드. They found that Mitsubishi’s “faulty computer modeling” resulted in mismatched components that, after only a year, had worn down significantly 노브레인 mp3.

The good news is that we caught this issue before a catastrophic problem occurred, hinting that the safety protocols from SCE were adequate. The bad news is that we were one computer glitch away from a national disaster 우분투 16.04 이미지 다운로드.

The outcome of all this is uncertain. You can bet that SCE would like to restart SONGS to start making money again, and they can do so by completing the checklist in the NRC report 애프터이펙트 2018 다운로드. They have said publicly this will not be until at least September, probably longer, meanwhile the public is digesting this news and preparing a public hearing from the NRC ssl 인증서.

Many are speculating that since the plant was not needed during the heavy-use summer days, maybe it is not needed at all. But, that ignores the fact that other power plants were operating above capacity to compensate 카카오스토리 멀티 다운로드. Either way something will need to change, whether it’s an acceptance of the restart of SONGS, a new plan to make normal the over-operation of natural gas plants, or some blended model that takes into account the renewable energy sources coming online in the next few years 공학용계산기.

 

More on this…

Universal Music Catalog – just a few years away

With the announcement of Amazon’s new Cloud Player iPhone app, the Universal Music Catalog is one step closer 도라에몽 극장판 달 탐사기 다운로드. For years I have dreamed of this Star Trek-like device, where I can find any song I want and listen to it, from anywhere. Preferably this will be an app on a device I already own (smartphone), rather than a new iPod or something 다운로드.

Though, I would buy an iPod that had the Universal Music Catalog on it 아이작 애프터버스 세이브파일 다운로드.

You may be skeptical but let’s work through this.

First, all three major online music retailers, Apple/Amazon/Google, give you the ability to upload thousands of songs to their cloud for free or at nominal costs fckeditor. Which means that each of them has the most massive music catalog you can possibly imagine. They also highly promote the “matching” ability of these mega-drives, which means that they probably already have the song you’re uploading so don’t worry, you can just use their copy 시네마 4d 무료 다운로드.

But, if they don’t have your song then they will store a copy on their drive, a brilliant way to continue growing their catalog.

Second, the details here are awesome zeromq. Amazon just announced that if you pay $20/year you have unlimited storage space for music 다운로드. Google offers space for 20,000 songs for free and Apple is charging $25/year for storage of 25,000 songs 다운로드. This even includes those mixtapes you’ve been carrying around, rare CD’s, and even live recordings.

Yeah, the piracy debate is dead in the water here 다운로드. Theoretically, one person could pirate 20,000 songs and then upload them to Google for free, with forever storage.
