JERSEY HOLIDAY 1961 IN OUR ILL FATED DAKOTA G-AMSW
 
08:53
1961 family holiday in Jersey at the Biarritz Hotel, St Brelades Bay. A beautiful Hotel run by the Methodist Church. First you will see our holiday then 5 mins into the film my Uncle filmed us leaving in the ill fated Derby Airways Dakota at Jersey Airport on our way home to Derby Airport. With me waving goodbye through the planes window. Little did we know that the same plane and the same crew a few weeks later crashed into the Pyrenees Mountains. Not one of the 34 on board survived including the crew. The film shows the plane in all its operational glory and acts as a reminder to us of the holiday makers and crew that tragically lost their lives. The Dakota G-AMSW fate can be read in more detail on this link - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1961_Derby_Aviation_crash Also when we flew to Jersey in another Dakota on that same holiday it landed with a bump and then took off again and made another approach to Jersey Airport. Unknown to us at the time the plane had a suspected flat Tyre! Just to add to this on another holiday to Jersey we flew back in a British Midland "Argonaut" (much bigger than a Dakota) Its name was Hotel Golf. We had a very bad landing causing a loud bang in the plane that shocked us all and made some passengers sick but we were told by the hostess it was just the toilet seat falling down! Just a few days later the same plane crashed in Stockport due to fuel starvation, just a few miles short of Manchester Airport. A friend of mine helped to pull 12 people out of the crashed plane before it caught fire having landed on an electrical sub station. There were no other survivors. The Argonaut's fate can be read in more detail on these links - www.casa.gov.au/fsa/2007/aug/46-49.pdf http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockport_air_disaster

Shrewsbury to Llanymynech Disused Railway, part 1
 
12:25
An exploration of the Shrewsbury to Llanymynech disused railway, known locally as The Potts Line due to funding from the North Staffordshire Railway Company. A line that was an economic disaster from the first day, but with a history of stop start during its whole lifetime makes this former railway the most fascinating of them all. In part one we look at the early history and the route to Shrawardine.

“Moore’s Law Is Really Dead: What Next?” at ACM Turing 50 Celebration
 
01:00:45
The 50-year reign of Moore’s Law, which delivered a billion-fold increase in transistors per chip, is finally over. Given that transistors are no longer getting much better, that the power budgets of microprocessors are not increasing, and that we’ve already replaced the single power-hungry processor with several energy-efficient ones, the only path to improve energy-performance-cost is specialized hardware. Microprocessors of the future will include special-purpose processors that do one class of computation much better than general-purpose processors. Accelerators for deep neural networks are but one of many potential targets. Panelists will discuss what old doors this seismic change will close and what new doors it will open. Moderator: John Hennessy, Stanford University Panelists: Doug Burger, Microsoft Research Norman P. Jouppi, Google Margaret Martonosi, Princeton University Butler Lampson (1992 Turing Laureate), Microsoft
Unknown Fields: From the Atomic to the Cosmic - Part 7 - Cornelia Hesse-Honegger
 
31:50
Lecture date: 2011-07-11 Summer 2011 Trajectory Public Forum This year, on the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first manned space flight and the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl Disaster, we pack our Geiger counters and spacesuits and chart a course from the atomic to the cosmic to investigate the unknown fields between nature and artifice. Joining us for the Atomic to the Cosmic forum will be an ensemble of artists, authors, scientists and designers. Through the lens of these two events we will re-examine our preservationist and conservationist attitudes toward the natural world and spin tales of the ecologically fragile and the technologically obsolete.To be the first to enter the cosmos, to engage, single-handed, in an unprecedented duel with nature-could one dream of anything more! - Yuri Gagarin Cornelia Hesse Honegger is a scientific illustrator and science artist. For 25 years she worked as a scientific illustrator for the scientific department of the Natural History Museum at the University of Zurich. Her watercolours are exhibited internationally at museums and galleries. Her work is at the interface of art and science; it plays witness to a beautiful but endangered nature. Since the catastrophe of Chernobyl in 1986, she has collected, studied and painted morphologically disturbed insects, which she finds in the fallout areas of Chernobyl as well as near nuclear installations. Forum Speakers include; Michael Madsen, Mario Petrucci, Cornelia Hesse Honegger, Peter Wynn Kirby, Will WIles, Dr Stephan Trüby, Philips Design Probes, Alicia Fram, Regina Pledszus, Paul Duffield, Louise K Wilson, Nelly Ben Hayoun, Mark Pilkington

Timeline of United States discoveries | Wikipedia audio article
 
01:23:55
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Timeline of United States discoveries Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= Timeline of United States discoveries encompasses the breakthroughs of human thought and knowledge of new scientific findings, phenomena, places, things, and what was previously unknown to exist. From a historical stand point, the timeline below of United States discoveries dates from the 18th century to the 21st century, which have been achieved by discoverers who are either native-born or naturalized citizens of the United States. With an emphasis of discoveries in the fields of astronomy, physics, chemistry, medicine, biology, geology, paleontology, and archaeology, United States citizens acclaimed in their professions have contributed much. For example, the "Bone Wars," beginning in 1877 and ending in 1892, was an intense period of rivalry between two American paleontologists, Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh, who initiated several expeditions throughout North America in the pursuit of discovering, identifying, and finding new species of dinosaur fossils. In total, their large efforts resulted in when 142 species of dinosaurs being discovered. With the founding of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 1958, a vision and continued commitment by the United States of finding extraterrestrial and astronomical discoveries has helped the world to better understand our solar system and universe. As one example, in 2008, the Phoenix lander discovered the presence of frozen water on the planet Mars of which scientists such as Peter H. Smith of the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory (LPL) had suspected before the mission confirmed its existence.

It spans approximately 394,000 square kilometres (152,000 sq mi) and has a population of 45.7 million (as of 2009). The capital of the province is Kunming, formerly also known as Yunnan. The province borders the Chinese provinces Guangxi, Guizhou, Sichuan, and the Tibet Autonomous Region, and the countries Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar. Yunnan is situated in a mountainous area, with high elevations in the northwest and low elevations in the southeast. Most of the population lives in the eastern part of the province. In the west, the altitude can vary from the mountain peaks to river valleys as much as 3,000 metres (9,800 ft). Yunnan is rich in natural resources and has the largest diversity of plant life in China. Of the approximately 30,000 species of higher plants in China, Yunnan has perhaps 17,000 or more. Yunnan's reserves of aluminium, lead, zinc and tin are the largest in China, and there are also major reserves of copper and nickel. The Han Empire first recorded diplomatic relations with the province at the end of the 2nd century BC. It became the seat of a Sino-Tibetan-speaking kingdom of Nanzhao in the 8th century AD. Nanzhao was multi-ethnic, but the elite most-likely spoke a northern dialect of Yi. The Mongols conquered the region in the 13th century, with local control exercised by warlords until the 1930s. From the Yuan dynasty onward, the area was part of a central-government sponsored population movement towards the southwestern frontier, with two major waves of migrants arriving from Han-majority areas in northern and southeast China. As with other parts of China's southwest, Japanese occupation in the north during World War II forced another migration of majority Han people into the region. These two waves of migration contributed to Yunnan being one of the most ethnically diverse provinces of China, with ethnic minorities accounting for about 34 percent of its total population. Major ethnic groups include Yi, Bai, Hani, Zhuang, Dai and Miao.
