Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack,Large

Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack,Large

A completely new concept in compression dry bags - there is no valve. This innovation uses an air-permeable base made of eVent waterproof fabric, which allows air to be pushed out of the sack, but won’t allow water to get back in. Proper Use: Any roll-top dry sack must be closed properly to ensure water can’t get in. Begin by folding the Hypalon strip down first and be sure to have at least three rolls before closing the buckle. Avoid contact with sharp objects or subjecting the sack to high abrasion, as this could compromise the waterproof fabric. Like all manufacturers of roll-top, fabric dry sacks, Sea to Summit recommends that sensitive electronic devices be ‘double bagged’ (i.e. putting electronics inside one dry sack then placing this inside a second dry sack). For maximum protection, the use of a waterproof hard case should be considered.

Event annoyance

Event annoyance

in almost every event now a day, you can guarantee these, what is now call "pretties", will be there as well. As the name suggested, they are suppose to be pretty girls dress in a theme uniform.. which is all nice n stuff to look at. But boy, are they annoying when they grab the mic. It seems like they are trained to shout and make these high pitch "exciting" noises to make your head turns (and ears droop) To make things worse is when there's two or more of them talking at the same time. My god. ears wants to run but eyes do want to look. sensory conflict is disturbing. :D

Some of them are so busy running from one event to another, they have this information overload problem. Each event required them to study their product/services which they are meant to promote.. and not all of them are good at memorizing or understanding the terms, particularly at high-tech product promotion. Now you'll have three combo.. annoying noises, competing babbling, and having no idea what they are talking about. Although, despite all the noise pollution, we men are still happy to 'see' that they are there. In fact, we might not even care what they were talking about. Me for instance, I’m not really sure what the girls in the picture were promoting.. i've sort of developed "auto ignored" program in my brain when I’m near these presenters.

By the way, these are the pretties at the thailand's open tennis @ muangthong thani, bangkok.

You all have a good Monday :]

Event Horizon

Event Horizon

In general relativity, an event horizon is a boundary in spacetime, an area surrounding a black hole, inside which events cannot affect an outside observer. Light emitted from inside the horizon can never reach the observer, and anything that passes through the horizon from the observer's side disappears.

Legend: An Event Group Thriller

Go down a river of no return, toward a fateful meeting with an animal that predates mankind’s existence by ninety million years---after a treasure that has captured man’s desires for centuries. This is what Legends are made of.

The year 1533: Sent by Francisco Pizarro, Captain Hernando Padilla and his small Spanish expedition found the legend that men had only dared to whisper. In a lost valley deep in Brazil, he discovered what had driven men of greatness into sheer madness: El Dorado, the largest gold deposit in the world, hidden away from the march of time, preserved as the pristine Eden of wondrous sights and forgotten people.

But what he found wasn’t just gold.

Instead, Padilla and his crew awakened a devil hidden in the lost valley, a beast of the Amazon who rises from the mother of all waters to viciously kill any who threaten the secret of the long-vanished Incas. But one soldier survives the bloody savagery and, before dying, shares his story with a lone priest in Peru. A secret the Vatican quickly buried away.

The Present: Professor Helen Zachary is searching for a hidden legend, buried deep within the Amazon Basin---a great beast who has survived there since the dawn of time, a being ready to plunge modern science into a world of darkness. And into this darkness, Professor Zachary and her team vanish.

Now a letter from a colleague of Zachary’s sends the Event Group, led by Major Jack Collins, chasing down the professor’s lost expedition and into the legendary darkness of the Amazon. Dedicated to discovering the truth behind the myths and legends propagated throughout world history, the Event Group---an agency within the U.S. government that officially doesn’t exist---ensures that mistakes from the past are never repeated. They are a dedicated collection of the nation’s most brilliant men and women of science, philosophy and the military.

Using cutting-edge technology exclusively designed for the Event Group by the U.S. military, they travel from Brazil to the Little Bighorn, from Columbia to the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery. As they do, the Event Group faces mounting opposition from several different adversaries bent on either discovering the whereabouts of El Dorado . . . or trying to bury the legend forever.

Praise for Event

?Golemon puts his military experience to good use in this promising debut sure to satisfy fans of The X-Files . . . the plotting and hair’s-breadth escapes evoke some of the early work of Preston and Child, and the author's premise offers a rich lode of materials for inevitable sequels.”
---Publishers Weekly

"Imagine mixing in a blender a Tom Clancy novel with the movie Predator and the television series The X-Files. . . . Readers who enjoy nonstop action and lots of flying bullets will enjoy Golemon’s first book in a projected series.”
---Library Journal

?The Roswell Incident--- whether legend, fact, or some combination of both---has inspired countless novels and movies over the years, but David Lynn Golemon’s Event peels back the layers of Roswell with refreshing originality. The action is spectacularly cinematic, the characters compelling, and the story is a flat-out adrenaline rush that pits real-world, cutting-edge military technology against a literally out-of-this-world threat. Even better, the Event Group itself is one of the best fictional agencies to arise in the literature of government conspiracies.”
---New York Times bestselling authors Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens

?Fans of UFO fiction will find this a great read, and fans of military fiction won’t be disappointed either.”

6.24.10 Day 15 - Blending in

6.24.10 Day 15 - Blending in

Today was more of the same; back and forth with professors and my advisor, while in between getting some work done. A mid-afternoon Dunkin Donuts break for a watermelon Coolatta helped...some. It cooled me off some, but right back to the nonsense once I got home. :/

I ended up withdrawing from the course that was the biggest problem, which is killing me right now, but I know in the long run it will prove to be the best option. I am about 95% caught up in one of the two courses I have left, including having about 1/3 of my work done that's due Tuesday...the other class I have a lot to catch up on. Fortunately, by the time I go to sleep tonight I plan to be completely caught up in the first class, so I can jump in tomorrow with getting a big chunk of the work for the second class done. Here's hoping.

When I got to a breaking point, I took a shower to hopefully cool off some again. Having had no motivation earlier to take a good portrait, I went outside afterwards to take a mediocre one. Hope y'all like it. My wet hair providing me with lovely camouflage to hide in this spiky plant. The flash in the pitch dark was way too harsh for me to use any shot that included my skin...even if it is a few shades darker than normal (I KNOW! I have a tan!!! Who woulda thunk!?), that still leaves me paler than pretty much everyone.

I love that my "brass free" blonde hair dye that I used to try to get this patch of weird pinkness out of my hair turned it red. (though I openly admit to playing with the colors on the finished photo, trust looks red) Oh, and the pink patch is still there. Fortunately, I just RSVP'ed for a hair model call to get a free coloring done. I will probably let them do something crazy...most likely I will just listen to whatever they think is best. I'm easy like that when it comes to my hair lately. I have learned that it is the most forgiving thing in my always grows back, eventually. And if I start getting annoyed with how it looks...I can easily change it again. Boosh.

90 minutes to (self-imposed) lights out...I think I can bang out a project and an essay in that time! Positive thinking!!!

And all women love change, after all it is a women's perogative (and has been quoted as such many times).


Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me

I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe her now

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me

Don't want to leave her now
You know I believe her now

You're asking me will my love grow
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around now it may show
I don't know, I don't know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me

Don't want to leave her now
You know I believe her now

Frescoes, athedral, Ani, eastern Turkey

Frescoes, athedral, Ani, eastern Turkey

In 450 (AD 1001) of the Armenians, at the time of Sarkis, honoured by God and Katholikos, spiritual lord of the Armenians, and during the glorious reign of Gagik, shahanshah of the Armenians and of the Georgians, I Katranideh, Queen of the Armenians, daughter of Vasak, King of Siunik, entrusted myself to the mercy of God and, by order of my husband Gagik shahanshah, built this holy cathedral, which the great Smbat had founded... Part of a 21 line inscription on the southern facade of the Cathedral.
Near the southern edge of the city stands the imposing Cathedral. This is the largest and most important building in Ani, and a structure of world architectural importance.
According to various historical sources and inscriptions, it is known that building work started in the year 989 under King Smbat II (977-89) and was completed, after a halt in construction, by the year 1001 (or 1010 depending on the reading of the inscription) by order of Queen Katranideh (Catherine), the wife of King Gagik Bagratuni, Smbat's successor. The cathedral was the work of Trdat, one of the most celebrated architects of medieval Armenia.
During the siege of 1064 the Cathedral held a symbolic importance. As the victorious Turks looted the city, one of them climbed the roof of the cathedral and tore down the large cross that rose from the top of the dome's conical roof. (It is said that this cross was later sealed under the threshold of a mosque so that it could be continuously tramped upon.) The Cathedral was then converted to a mosque and renamed the Fethiye Camisi, the Victory Mosque.
It was returned to Christian usage in 1124, and inscriptions tell of restoration work carried out in the early 13th century. The devastating earthquake of 1319 brought down the dome and may have marked the end of the building's formal religious use.
The Architecture
Like most Armenian buildings, the cathedral is built entirely from stone - a facing of extremely well cut and finished polychrome masonry hides a rubble concrete core. The plan is in the form of a domed basilica. This is a pattern found in Armenia since the seventh century. However, Trdat's design takes this old form to new heights of sophistication and originality.
The Exterior
The loss of the central dome has given the building a cube-like form it originally did not have. The cupola collapsed in an earthquake in 1319 and the rest of the drum is said to have collapsed during another in 1832. The gaping hole in the north-west corner was caused by the 1988 earthquake, which also caused a serious rent in the south-west corner; by 1998 parts of the roof here had started to fall. Blasting explosions from the quarry opposite the cathedral during 2000/2001 caused further damage: the crack in the south-west corner deepened and widened considerably, and the west facade started to bulge out from its original position. There is now a risk of the complete collapse of the west facade.
A decorative blind arcade on slim columns runs around the whole of the exterior, into which are inserted tall slender windows with frames of finely carved fretwork. There are also small porthole windows below the gables of each transept.
There are entrance doorways in the north, south and west walls - these traditionally were for the patriarch, the king and the people respectively. Standing out in front of each doorway was originally a vaulted porch now mostly destroyed, probably a canopy resting on free-standing pillars.
The distinctive triangular niches cut into the north, south and east facades, together with the positioning of the windows, indicate the location of the transepts and apse within. These niches also break up the plain surface of the facades, and give an increased sense of height and solidity to the walls (which are actually very thin). Structurally, the niches also act like a sort of splayed buttress. There are no niches on the western facade because a greater thickness of wall is needed here to counteract the thrust of the large arched vault inside.
The Interior
The inside of the cathedral is tall, and rather dark - and would have been even more so when the central dome was in place. This is not a flaw, but an intention.
Since the apse and side-chambers account for about a quarter of the interior space, the vaults east of the dome are short, considerably shorter than those west of the dome. Four massive clustered piers in the rectangular nave support both the dome and the arches supporting the roof. The barrel vaults along the east-west and north-south axes are almost as high as the base of the drum, and are expressed outside in the two intersecting pitched roofs.
The spacious apse is accommodated beneath the easterly roof and revealed on the outside facade only in the form of a window between two deep niches. The chancel within the apse is elevated from the rest of the floor and has a row of ten semicircular niches containing seats. It is flanked by two-storied chambers whose upper floors are reache



Holloway Road, London
It's only in a certain light, from a certain angle, that the beauty of the Holloway Odeon becomes apparent. It was built in 1937-8 as the Gaumont, by the Chicago architect C. Howard Crane.
The interior was rebuilt, after bomb damage during WW II.
It's a listed building. Extract from the listing below:

Buff, green, brown and black faience, with brown brick, roof of copper on the tower, but roofs over the auditorium and foyer block not seen. The building stands on a wedge-shaped site, and the description falls into four parts: a tower, rectangular in plan, on the corner of Holloway Road and Tufnell Park Road, faced with faience; a lower wing to the tower, also faced with faience, on Tufnell Park Road; a parade of shops in Holloway Road; and the main auditorium block, of brick.

EXTERIOR: Curving entrance on the corner of Tufnell Park Road and Holloway Road with a canopy over, which returns down Tufnell Park Road; tripartite window above the entrance with engaged fluted columns with palm leaf capitals and a frieze of scrolling ornament between the columns; there is a similar window on the Tufnell Park Road side of the tower, but on the Holloway Road side the window is single with the engaged columns in the reveals; original decorative metal glazing. Above this, panels edged by brown faience; the chamfered, slightly inset corners of the tower have windows with original metal glazing and vertical panels of arabesques above; frieze of three narrow recessed bands below parapet which is coped with black faience; attic comprising one low set-back with fluted frieze; second higher set-back with three blind windows to each side; entablature to top parapet; shallow hipped roof with flagpole. The lower, faience-covered wing in Tufnell Park Road has a vertical inset panel of arabesques flanked by fluted pilasters. The shops in Holloway Road are faced in faience and are interspersed with exits; frieze of green faience below the parapet and an open arcade with cornice over, fronting what was originally a terrace cafe. The shop fronts have been renewed and are not of special interest, although the overall composition of faience columns and terrace frieze is an important decorative scheme. The brick auditorium wing at the rear of the site has sparing use of faience decoration. The architectural interest of the site is concentrated in the foyer block and in the elevation to Holloway Road.

INTERIOR:Double-height galleried foyer, with a semi-circular end facing the entrance. Stair at the apsidal end with an octagonal newel-post and squat column-on-vase balusters; closed string decorated with Rinceau, brass handrails; at gallery level the walls are divided by Corinthian pilasters singly and in pairs to the sides, and Corinthian columns to the apsidal end, with bands of latticework and fluting between; valences to windows and other openings; two large panels of mirror-glass with Modern metal grills and another panel with glazing imitating the windows. Full entablature with triglyphs and paterae, modillion cornice with mutules; the plaster ceiling decoration follows a semi-circular pattern at the inner end having a broad band of fluting and a narrow band of ornament, cartouches and paterae. First floor crush hall with Corinthian pilasters, frieze of swags, fluted frieze and cornice; plaster ceiling decoration with ogee patterned ribs. The former caf area has been adapted as an extra screen, but the decorative scheme is thought to survive behind the partitioning. The auditorium has been subdivided into smaller cinemas and is not of special interest.

ANALYSIS:Originally, the Gaumont was one of the most spectacular of Britain s super-cinemas; while the auditorium has been lost, its external impact is still greater than almost any other cinema, an example of trans-Atlantic bravura. Prominent in the field in the USA, C. Howard Crane designed the stupendous Fox cinemas in Detroit and St. Louis and was also amongst the team of architects and designers responsible for the Radio City Music Hall in New York. Crane was only one of two leading American cinema architects to work in Britain; Thomas Lamb's Empire, Leicester Square, has, however, been gutted. Crane was also the architect of the Earl's Court Exhibition Hall. Included for the exceptional quality of the principal elevations and foyer areas.

Blind Alley (Eve Duncan)

Blind Alley (Eve Duncan)

The New York Times bestselling author of Firestorm, Iris Johansen, returns with a psychological thriller so terrifying, so relentlessly paced, it won’t leave you time to catch your breath before the next shock comes. A forensic sculptor is locked in a deadly duel with a serial killer determined to destroy her—one life at a time.

Eve Duncan’s job is to put a face on the faceless victims of violent crimes. Her work not only comforts their survivors—but helps catch their killers. But there is another, more personal reason that Eve Duncan is driven to do the kind of work she does—a dark nightmare from a past she can never bury. And as she works on the skull of a newly discovered victim, that past is about to return all over again.

The victim is a Jane Doe found murdered, her face erased beyond recognition. But whoever killed her wasn’t just trying to hide her identity. The plan was far more horrifying. For as the face forms under Eve’s skilled hands, she is about to get the shock of her life. The victim is someone she knows all too well. Someone who isn’t dead. Yet.

Instantly Eve’s peaceful life is shattered. The sanctuary of the lakeside cottage she shares with Atlanta detective Joe Quinn and their adopted daughter Jane has been invaded by a killer who’s sent the grimmest of threats: the face of his next victim. To stop him, Eve must put her own life in the balance and question everything and everyone she trusts. Not even Quinn can go where Eve must go this time.

As the trail of faceless bodies leads to a chilling revelation, Eve finds herself trying to catch a master murderer whose grisly work is a testament to a mind warped by perversion and revenge. Now she must pit her skills against his in a showdown where the stakes are life itself—and where the unbearable cost of failure will make Eve’s own murder seem like a mercy killing.

Blind Memory: Visual Representations of Slavery in England and America, 1780-1865

A study of Atlantic slavery generated by the visual arts. It considers in detail four "sites" which have generated particularly influential imagery: the middle passage; flight/escape; slave torture/punishment; and the popular imagery which evolved around Stowe's classic abolition text, "Uncle Tom's Cabin". Abolition exploded in the 1780s as an international propaganda movement. From then on until the end of the Civil War the slavery debate generated a deluge of materials. Every conceivable visual resource was drawn upon, including paintings, sculptures, prints, textiles, maps, ceramics, jewellery, needlework, "tableaux vivantes", and theatrical performance. Different forms require different ways of reading and this text is, of necessity, theoretically experimental and essentially interdisciplinary. Developments in trauma theory, Holocaust studies, Diaspora studies, even cartography, are drawn upon. The book thinks about how the West has remembered slavery through its visual art, but beyond this it demands that we reconsider how slavery is culturally constructed in the West now. The study consequently ends by asking what institutions, rituals, narratives and images we have decided are the "right" way of remembering slavery.

What kind of camera do you need?

If your answer is B. This review can help you.?

If you like to have some fun operating a camera, and want to take pictures easily with a stylish camera, Samsung compact digital camera, ST10 will be appealing to you.

Especially, since many users are sharing pictures with others by uploading them on their internet homepage or blog, compact camera users are increasing. And they usually want to carry a camera everywhere.

Now taking pictures have become a popular habit. Lots of users are female, and they want a small camera that fits into a petite purse. But so far, the compact cameras with high portability have been not so good in its functions.

However, thanks to development of digital technology, recently released digital cameras have improved a lot in its functions and features. Samsung’s VLUU series also have introduced a variety of cameras to meet users’ diverse demand.

In the preview of ST10, we’ve looked at its design and functions. So now I want to focus on its functions in detail and how well they work.

My personal impression of it after I’ve taken a few shots was that I could definitely see the improvement from the compact digital cameras form several years ago.

ST10’s appearance looks similar to other compact digital cameras in that it’s quite small in size.

ST10 comes in several colors, and the one I got was metal silver/white two-toned product.

This color is good for both men and women compared to other colors. (not that it’s different in its specification)

I’ll go over in detail below.
I saw silver, red, and black ST10, and personally I liked silver. Red and black are also attractive, but I like silver because you don’t get easily bored with the color. And it’s not simple silver but more of metal grey color, and the rotating cover on the front is made with chrome like mirror. The backside with LCD is white tone which matches well with small compact camera. It’s just my personal opinion, though. :)

What comes to your mind when you look at the chrome rotating cover on the front?

Beeping sound notifies you when the face locates on the center of the screen. (On/Off available)

Self guide is useful when you take self-shots. When the subject’s face is placed on the center of the screen, the beeping sound gets faster. From now on, there’ll be no failed pictures with half of your face or only one person’s face out of two.

The chrome rotating cover on the front can also work as a mirror. If you use it well, it can help take better self-shots. If you turn this rotating cover, the lens of ST10 comes out, and you can check your facial expressions or background on this mirror-like cover while looking at the lens. Its main target is young people, who enjoy taking self pictures daily or when traveling. In those cases, it’ll be the functional bonus for you.

Operation of ST10 is simple but unique. Power turns on when you turn the lens cover to open, and it turns off when you turn the lens cover back. Normally, it protects the lens, and when you turn on the camera, it works like a power button. It is efficient, but this ON/OFF type can be strange to some people.

Basically, when you open the lens cover, it takes about a second to get ready for shooting. Getting into the shooting mode is also pretty fast, so it has good responding time when you quickly want to capture a moment with your digital camera.

If opening and closing the lens cover is troublesome for you, you may use the power button on the top for ON/OFF while the lens cover is opened.

I’ve talked about the design and noticeable ON/OFF with rotating lens cover of ST10 first. But if we only know about this, it is still far from actually getting ready to use it. So from now on, we’ll take a look at the various functions and capability of ST10. If you know more, you can do better. More functions you know, the easier you can take pictures with your digital camera.

Explanation about each part of ST10 digital camera can be redundant since its basic interface is very simple. In my opinion, if you’re older than elementary school students, you can operate it without reading manual. You can see that there’s a ON/OFF button separate from lens cover. I mentioned this before, but since turning the lens cover every time can bother you, so be aware that you can also ON/OFF the camera with power button.

You can record size 800x600 video, so there’s a speaker on the front, and AF assist light ad self-timer lamp on the upper left side. You need to be careful not to block the lights with your finger when you soot in dark places. Multi-functional connecter is used for charging, and connecting USB or A/V. Since you can connect everything with one connector, you don’t need complex connectors. Battery and SD memory holder is combined at the bottom of ST10. You can stick in the SD memory
