Aston Martin’s limited edition submarine is totally my next car ;)

Aston Martin has a new concept submarine designed in partnership with submarine maker Triton Submarines. The project is codenamed “Neptune,” and the concept designs envision a sleek underwater craft with aggressive pointy-ended pontoons and a central passenger bubble cockpit with an unobstructed, all-around view.

The Neptune submersible combines Aston Martin’s design skills with Triton’s ability to produce functional submersibles for researchers, explores and the super-rich. Triton’s expertise lies in making sure that submarines can actually submerge safely, which is what gives me hope that this concept will indeed proceed to the limited edition production phase, as Aston Martin says it will.

Project Neptune is based on an existing three-person submarine platform from Triton’s lineup, so that’s another win in terms of production viability. And even when it does get made, it’s going to be an “exclusive, strictly limited edition vehicle” so you probably won’t see these dotting the local harbor regardless.

SanDisk’s 400GB microSD card is the solution of everything !

 


SanDisk has a new record-breaking microSD coming to market, which will deliver so much storage you might be at a loss as to what to do with it all. The new 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card is the world’s highest capacity card of its type, and is ideally suited for use in Android smartphones that feature an expansion slot.

Android’s most recent versions allow you to adopt microSD-based storage as “native internal” storage, which allows you to use it to install apps, store photos and more as if you were using a built-in flash memory drive. Most recent Android devices that offer a microSD slot will support the new 400GB chip out of the box, meaning you can get your phone up to almost double what the top-end iPhone currently offers in onboard storage.

The SanDisk 400gb microSD card can hold up to 40 hours of 1080p HD video, Western Digital notes, and offers transfer speeds of up to 100mb/s. It’s also designed to comply with the A1 App Performance Class specification for flash memory, which means it can load and run apps faster when operating as adopted internal storage.

Even though it offers so much added storage, the price won’t break the bank – at $250, it’s actually very reasonable for in terms of price to storage ratio. It also comes with a 10-year limited manufacturer’s warranty, and its already available on amazon or via SanDisk website directly and all the usual retail suspects.

Lonely Subway Station in China


In Chongqing, China, this station subway seems abandoned in the middle of a wild nature who claimed its rightful place. However, it is a brand new station. The municipality of Chongqing, one of the four in the country, spreads on 82 000 km2, that is Austria’s surface area. In order to develop its transportation network, the city built this odd station that looks like it is closed down in spite of its modernity inside. The station has barely any visitors and offers us a surreal setting.

 

Japan’s Wisteria Flower Tunnel Is Like Walking Through A Rainbow

 

This isn’t a Monet painting—it’s a photograph.
It shows a flower tunnel at The Kawachi Fuji Gardens, a private garden on rural Kyushu Island in southern Japan. The garden is open to the public for only a few months a year.

 

 

The garden includes 20 different species of wisteria plants, but the wisteria tunnel is the garden’s prime spot. The pastel passageway looks like something straight out of a fairytale when the flowers are in bloom—all you need are roaming unicorns to complete the picture.

 

 

In the Buddhist religion, wisteria is a symbol of prayer. The Chinese flower is a member of the pea family and is known for its climbing vines and winding branches. The plants can climb as high as 65 feet above ground and can spread 32 feet laterally, according to University of Florida’s Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants. The flowers bloom in lavender, violet, pink and white.

 

 

Visit in late April or early May to experience the full magic of the tunnel. Try to go during the “Fuji Matsuri” (“Wisteria Festival”) when the tunnel is in full bloom.

These houses can survive natural disasters

 

Japan Dome House, a modular home manufacturer, has been making and selling its styrofoam dome houses for over fifteen years, but since the April 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes, there has been a surge of interest in the company’s products.

Some readers may do a double take, as the material used for these homes is indeed styrofoam.

Polystyrene (more commonly known as styrofoam) is widely used for everything from cups and food containers to packaging material. Polystyrene is a petroleum-based product made from the styrene monomer, which is classified as a possible human carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

 

Some countries and municipalities around the world (including Taiwan and Portland, Oregon and Orange County, California in the U.S.) have also banned the use of polystyrene foam.

Nevertheless, the future of earthquake-resistant home building in Japan may very well come in the shape of domed houses built from this material.

Aso Farm Land
On April 16, 2016, a magnitude 7.0 main shock struck the city of Kumamoto in Kyushu Prefecture (following a foreshock two days earlier). The two earthquakes killed at least 49 people and injured some 3,000 others.

Many structures in Kumamoto and Oita Prefectures collapsed and caught fire, and more than 44,000 people were evacuated from their homes due to the disaster. Thousands of evacuees are still living in temporary housing.

However, among the structures that were not damaged was a small village of 480 houses at the Aso Farm Land resort, a health-themed national park built on a somma volcano, in Kyushu. Visitors to Aso Farm Land can enjoy numerous open-air hot springs and stay overnight in differently-themed accommodations.

The “Village Zone” of Aso Farm Land consists of 480 closely-packed dome-shaped houses made of a next-generation form of polystyrene foam. When the Kumamoto earthquake struck, none of these dome houses were damaged. This has has lead to a surge of interest in the technology behind their construction.

Fourth-Generation Building Material
Japan Dome House, based in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture, claims that it has developed a fourth generation building material (following wood, iron, and concrete); and that its dome house has a number of characteristics that makes it superior to conventional materials and house shapes.

Using proprietary technology, it has developed an expanded polystyrene (EPS) product that is much stronger and more compact than the foam that is used for shipping material and food containers.

 

The company believes that its dome houses have a number of benefits. These include:

Ultra-Short Building Time

A dome house can be assembled in about a week by three or people, using modular dome pieces that weigh only about 80-kg (176 pounds).

Ultra-Low Cost
The company says that the total construction cost of a basic dome house is between ¥7 million and ¥8 million ($68,700 and $78,500) for a house with a floor space of about 36-sqm (387-sqft) and a ceiling height of 3 meters (9.8 feet).

Highly Earthquake Resistant
Because of its dome shape, the lack of a need for posts and beams in construction, and its extremely light weight the dome house is highly earthquake resistant.

Ultra-Thermal Insulating

Expanded polystyrene also has very high thermal insulating properties. This combined with the dome shape (which allows air to circulate by convection and prevents it from accumulating in corners) makes the dome house highly energy-saving.

Highly Durable
Polystyrene also does not rust or rot and is not subject to termite infestation. After assembly, the walls of the Dome House are also coated with fire retardant making the houses fireproof.

The dome shape of the house also makes it resistant to high winds.

Antioxidant Building Construction
The company also claims that its houses are healthy to live in because an anti-oxidant solution is kneaded into the polystyrene foam building material. Formaldehyde is also not used in the construction process which means that Japan Dome Houses do not suffer from “sick-house” syndrome.

Certification
The Dome House and the company’s specially developed polystyrene foam have also been certified by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Tourism and Industry as being compliant with national building codes.

Customizable Dome Houses
Japan Dome House has developed a number of modular parts for its dome houses, which makes them highly customizable.

The company says its dome houses are used around Japan not only as residences but also as small hotels, steam rooms, temples and churches, child care centers and educational facilities and even karaoke bars. Because they can be quickly assembled there is also growing interest in using them as temporary housing for evacuees from natural disasters.

Prinker Introduces Tattoos that Are Pain-Free and Non-Permanent

SketchOn’s Technology Recognized at Finland’s Slush

Launched in 2008 in Helsinki, Finland, Slush is Europe’s largest startup conference, where startup
hopefuls gather to attract investment and share information and anyone interested in startups comes
to discover the next “big thing.” Last year’s Slush, held for two days in November, drew about 1,700 startups,
800 investors, and 16,000 visitors. This startup event has given rise to some of the world’s largest mobile game
creators, including Rovio and Supercell, the creator of “Clash of Clans,” as well as a series of Fintech startups
representing Finland.

Notably, SketchOn, a Korean startup under Samsung Electronics’ in-house venture “C-Lab,” was selected
as one of the top four companies in Slush’s pitching competition last year. Of the 100 companies that pass
the competition’s preliminary round, the top 20 are selected and given a chance to pitch their products.
Among them, four finalists are selected and pitted against each other, with only one winner coming out on top.
Although, SketchOn did not emerge as the winner, it was a strong runner-up, proving that its technology rivals
that of other startups around the world.

 

Harmless, Easy-to-Erase Printed Tattoos

SketchOn has developed “Prinker,” a printer capable of printing images on human skin.
All you need to do is draw the image you want using the Prinker smartphone application and apply Prinker
to the part of your body where you want the image to be, and the image will be printed on your skin,
just like a tattoo. Creating something similar to a tattoo sticker, the biggest advantage of Prinker,
however, is that it poses no risk to human health, as it uses only cosmetics-grade color materials.
It is easy to remove as well, and lasts only about a day, unless you rub it with your hands.

Prinker has applications in a wide range of areas. It can be used at amusement parks, clubs, or stadiums
to replace paper tickets or bracelets, thereby preventing loss and helping preserve the environment.
It can also be used to draw pictures on children’s faces or bodies at amusement parks. Another interesting
application is the printing of QR codes on skin for marketing purposes.

 


CEO Lee Jong-in says that Prinker is not looking to compete in the tattoo industry; he believes that
the tattoo is an art of its own. Rather than replacing existing tattoos, Prinker is targeting those people
who are reluctant to get tattoos, due to the health risks, permanence, and pain involved.
People can enjoy Prinker’s “contemporary tattoos” at festivals, special events, or amusement parks
and then remove them and go back to normal when the fun is over.
There is also a certain “analogue-meets-digital” aspect to the device, in that it prints hand-drawn images.
Lee said, “Tattoo stickers provide a limited number of choices, and can irritate the skin and cause allergic
reactions. Also, the disadvantage of body painting is that it requires professional skill and takes a long time.”

 

Planning to Expand into the Amusement Park, Premium Club, and Sports Markets


SketchOn is expected to begin selling Prinker in earnest this year. Starting in the business-to-business
(B2B) market, the company plans to gradually target the B2C market.
The main target customers in the B2B market include premium clubs, amusement parks, and sports companies.
A version of Prinker designed for the B2C market will be launched in the second half of this year, with a price
around USD 200. With this, SketchOn aims to post sales of USD 4.37 million this year. With the market for
devices designed to print on skin expected to grow from USD 480 million in 2016 to USD 1.15 billion by 2020,
SketchOn has strong growth potential. CEO Lee Jong-in said, “I hope that Prinker will be able to position itself
as a “self-expression tool,” with which people can express themselves through images printed on their bodies.”

VW New Californian hippies Microbus is Back & Will Hit the Road in 2022



The Microbus is Back

On August 19, Volkswagen announced at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California that its electric microbus, the I.D. BUZZ concept car, will go into production. The new microbus will debut in dealerships throughout China, Europe, and North America in 2022, after the compact four-door version arrives.


“After the presentations at the global motor shows in Detroit and Geneva, we received a large number of letters and emails from customers who said, ‘please build this car’,” Volkswagen CEO Dr. Herbert Diess said at the event. Diess explained to attendees that the location of the announcement was deliberately chosen: “The Microbus has long been part of the California lifestyle. Now we’re bringing it back by reinventing it as an electric vehicle.”

New Tech, Classic Style

The production model I.D. BUZZ will feature all of the benefits of electric drive components, including a long wheelbase and lots of interior space. According to a CNET reviewer who drove the bus, its doors open and close automatically, like Tesla’s Model X, and with a 0-60 acceleration in under 5 seconds, it has the speed to match other electric vehicles— not that anyone driving one will be in much of a rush. The battery pack has a range of around 270 miles, on par with the Model X and the Chevy Bolt, and more than the Tesla’s Model S. The nearly flat front of the classic VW microbus will be retained, because the batteries will be mounted in the floor of the vehicle, just as they are in the concept version shown in Detroit in April.

The I.D. BUZZ is designed for multiple purpose: as a passenger vehicle, but also to carry freight just as the classic T2 did. “Along with a minibus version, we’ll also be offering an I.D. BUZZ CARGO variant for zero-emissions delivery of goods,” Volkswagen’s CEO of Commercial Vehicles, Dr. Eckhard Scholz said at the event. “With Level 3 autonomous capability, this is an ideal concept for an electric van, particularly for delivering packages and goods to the inner cities.”


The iconic VW microbus has a long history in America. It began production in 1950, and by the late 1960s had become a symbol of the hippie counterculture, with enough space to transport groups to rallies, concerts, and anyplace else. This new version of the classic retains a lot of this classic style and nostalgia, with maximum space utilization and recognizable elements of the beloved microbus style. The I.D. BUZZ will also incorporate various design ideas from the concept car, including interactive connectivity, multi-variable seating, and highly automated driving. It’s the hippie’s choice for the electric car revolution.

Dr. Nise da Silveira The Most Underrated Woman in The History of Humankind !

Nise da Silveira was born in Maceió, in the northeastern state of Alagoas, Brazil, in 1905. After graduating from the Medical School of Bahia in 1926 (the only woman among 157 men), she devoted her life to psychiatry and never was in agreement with the aggressive forms of treatment of her time such as commitment to psychiatric hospitals, electroshock, insulin therapy and lobotomy. Her method was basically to treat patient which she refused to call them patients instead she called them “Clients” and called the doctor and nursing staff. The hospital ward where she was supposed to work at was dirty and in absolute mess which she arrived, she and one nurse took by their own the job of cleaning the ward to make it appropriate place to live for the clients AKA patients. It is worth mentioning that the male nurse (nurse) hired to work with her was aggressive to patients and used to abuse them and beat them not only that he refused to clean up the ward with the doctor claiming that its not his job. She managed after a while to transform this person into very kind human that treat patients with love and compassion.

 

 

After that a male nurse (Murse) who was interested in painting suggested to Dr. Nise to start bringing basic drawing instruments and let the patients draw. They first refused and acted aggressively towar this concept, she actually fought other nurses not gave patients medicine to calm them down and asked them to leave the patients be them selves only few of them refused to participate in drawings and art work, by time they all got very interested and started drawing what’s in their subconscious and one single man chose to sculpt using clay (none of the patients had art back ground) After that Dr Nise with her nursing staff started getting stray dogs for each patients, of course male doctors along with the head of the hospital refused. They claimed that dogs will bring dirt and infections to the patients although they helped patients to get better massively starting to regain their feelings of love and be loved and the dogs were kept in the outer yard/garden and was taken to vets from time to time. Eventually evil men “doctors” killed the dogs which devastated and traumatized the poor patients who were already half way cured or at least act normally (not aggressive anymore even the most dangerous one who was actually captured in isolated cell and tortured) killing the dogs made the patients conditions worse Dr Nise with her staff had to start from point zero.

Even for normal people dogs give unconditional love and compassion.

The pictures above shows the brutual ways used to treat patients back then and they are still in use for some patients.

Doctor Nise Refused to participate in aggressiveness and brutal method which never improved patients conditions actually it killed their emotions and senses. She fought 157 male doctors to stop this bullshit of treatments, and tried to convince them that her methods actually work and never gave up her dream to stop brutality treatments to stop the hospital dominated by men doctors using aggressive methods that are unproven, she even risked being fired. At the very bottom of this page I will list the reasons why did male doctors refused  and fought back to show that her methods aren’t scientifically proven.

She then came to a genius idea to arrange a gallery in Rio de Janeiro which also serves as a study and research center that collected the works produced in painting and modeling studio. Through her work, Nise da Silveira introduced the only art gallery of psychology ill people in Brazil that includes patients art works and invited one of the most respected artists and critiques, he was stunned and helped her arrange fund for the Museum of Images and art work of the Unconscious and he invited the elite people, psychiatrists and family that have patients thrown and prisoned in the wrong clinics those who suffer from cases related to unconscious and described that these art works created by the patients matches or even exceed the best artists in South America or maybe the world.

A few years later, in 1956, Nise da Silveira developed another revolutionary project for her time from the funds generated from the previous gallery, she created the “Casa das Palmeiras” (Palms House), a clinic for former patients of psychiatric institutions, where they could freely express their art and be treated as outpatients on a daily basis. She also formed the C.G. Jung Study Group, which she chaired until 1968.

Her research on occupational therapy and the understanding of the psychotic process through images of the unconscious gave origin, along the years, to exhibitions, films, documentaries, audiovisuals, courses, symposiums, publications and conferences. She was also a pioneer in researching emotional relations between patients and animals, whom she used to call co-therapists.

In recognition of her work, Nise da Silveira was awarded decorations, titles and prizes in different areas of knowledge. She was a founding member of the International Society for Psychopathological Expression headquartered in Paris, France. Her work and ideas inspired the creation of Museums, Cultural Centers and Therapeutic Institutions in Brazil and overseas. “The Casa das Palmeiras” Is still open to visitors in Rio as a museum.

Reasons why she was never awarded the Noble Prize or her story been recognized all over the world as she absolutely deserves it in my OPINION:

1. She is a woman and sexism is still practiced in every single in the world.

2. Psychiatrist Medicine industry will go bankrupt if these free drug medications was applied.

3. The so claimed psychiatrics ” AKA drug dealers ” at least some of them” who have gigantic contacts with medicine manufacturers will also go vanished. Also the want people to get hooked and addicted to their medicines for ever to make these drug dealers and manufacturers make more and more money convince people believe that they are actually sick or even crazy.

4. Most of the patients cases suffered from lack of love or separation from their loved ones and these two factors (majorly) causes trauma which can heal by time or push the patients to make them self busy through various activities like art in general or working out, taking care of a pet (specially dogs).

I am very sad for her not to receive the recognition she deserved.

DR. Nise died on October 30, 1999, in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

There is a real story movie documenting her live (never edited) every thing in the movie was true. It is available on Netflix called (Nise the heart of madness) its in Portuguese you can use subtitles though. BELIEVE ME IT WORTHS EVERY SECOND.

The movie poster & trailer are below then below the a slideshow its a mix of real events/pictures and from the movie.

Rainbows are actually circules not arcs 🌈

It’s possible to see the whole circle of a rainbow – but sky conditions have to be just right. Plus you have to be up high.


When sunlight and raindrops combine to make a rainbow, they can make a whole circle of light in the sky. But it’s a very rare sight. Sky conditions have to be just right for this, and even if they are, the bottom part of a full-circle rainbow is usually blocked by your horizon. That’s why we see rainbows not as circles, but as arcs across our sky.


When you see a rainbow, notice the height of the sun. It helps determine how much of an arc you’ll see. The lower the sun, the higher the top of the rainbow. If you could get up high enough, you’d see that some rainbows continue below the horizon seen from closer to sea-level. Mountain climbers sometimes see more of a full-circle rainbow, though even a high mountain isn’t high enough to show you the whole circle.
Pilots do sometimes report seeing genuine full-circle rainbows. They’d be tough to see out the small windows we passengers look through, but pilots have a much better view from up front.

The First Ever Evidence of the Multiverse

A recent study on a space anomaly that has perplexed scientists for years has some suggesting that it could be explained by a parallel “bubble universe” — although there are other, more standard potential explanations, as well.

For years, scientists have been baffled by a weird anomaly far away in space: a mysterious “Cold Spot” about 1.8 billion light-years across. It is cooler than its surroundings by around 0.00015 degrees Celsius (0.00027 degrees Fahrenheit), a fact astronomers discovered by measuring background radiation throughout the universe.

Previously, astronomers believed that this space could be cooler simply because it had less matter in it than most sections of space. They dubbed it a massive supervoid and estimated that it had 10,000 galaxies fewer than other comparable sections of space.

But now, in a recently published survey of galaxies, astronomers from the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) say they have discovered that this supervoide could not exist. They now believe that the galaxies in the cold spot are just clustered around smaller voids that populate the cold spot like bubbles. These small voids, however, cannot explain the temperature difference observed.

But now, in a recently published survey of galaxies, astronomers from the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) say they have discovered that this supervoide could not exist. They now believe that the galaxies in the cold spot are just clustered around smaller voids that populate the cold spot like bubbles. These small voids, however, cannot explain the temperature difference observed.

“This means we can’t entirely rule out that the Spot is caused by an unlikely fluctuation explained by the standard model. But if that isn’t the answer, then there are more exotic explanations,” said researcher Tom Shanks in the press release. “Perhaps the most exciting of these is that the Cold Spot was caused by a collision between our universe and another bubble universe.”

 

If more detailed studies support the findings of this research, the Cold Spot might turn out to be the first evidence for the multiverse, though far more evidence would be needed to confirm our universe is indeed one of many.
