Happy Tesla Day! - July 10th

Nikola TeslaNikola Tesla
Inventor, Engineer (c. 1856–1943)

Serbian-American inventor Nikola Tesla was born in July of 1856, in what is now Croatia. He came to the United States in 1884, and briefly worked with Thomas Edison before the two parted ways. He sold several patent rights, including those to his alternating-current machinery, to George Westinghouse. His 1891 invention, the "Tesla coil," is still used in radio technology today. Tesla died in New York City on January 7, 1943. [biography.com]

Hello, I am your substitute teacher...

Bell & Howell 16mm Optical SoundYou stroll into the classroom and notice there is something odd about the place. All the window blinds have been pulled down; transforming what was once your window to the outside world into a wall of dimly glowing amber. Only half the banks of overhead florescent lights are lit. You are about to learn that very soon even those will be extinguished. Looking to the front of the room you see the chalkboard is now shrouded in a bright white sheet of reflective glass beads. You turn to check the rear of the room and discover that magnificent marvel of modern mechanics; that beautiful beast by Bell & Howell. You know what this means...

Yes boys and girls it's "Movie Day!" So come on in and take your seats. No, this will not be a gonorrhea prevention message... No, this will not be a romp through old growth forests showing how they turn a majestic redwood into a toothpick... Sorry but this is not even - and I know it is your favorite - "The Life Cycle of a Water Droplet." No class, today we have a very special animated film from Disney Studios that I am sure you will find both entertaining and educational. If you don't want to watch the movie you may put your head down on your desk (please try not to drool on your textbook; snoring will not be tolerated.) - There will be no talking or I will stop this projector and you will all do worksheets - Suzie will you please turn out the lights - 

Sit back, relax and enjoy the show...

Hey Rocky - Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat... Again?!?In this day and age we take for granted that Computer Generated Imagery is likely behind the special effects we see in movies and on television. The video below illustrates how with ingenuity and coordination, riggers and grips can still blow our minds.

You will probably need to view this a couple of times to follow all that is going on here.

Enjoy!

How They Made The Old Spice "I'm On A Horse" Commercial

Published on Jun 7, 2014 Cody Michel

I LOVED this commercial the second I saw it. But what makes so much cooler, is the fact that it was shot entirely practically, except for the stuff in his hand. ps. I'm aware this isn't video of the take they actually used, but it's so well choreographed that it hardly makes a difference. Original Camera Footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ux4C-...

TV Catchphrase Collection

  • Contributed by:

That's All Folks!

wikipedia says:

A catchphrase (or catch-phrase) is a phrase or expression recognized by its repeated utterance. Such phrases often originate in popular culture and in the arts, and typically spread through a variety of mass media (such as literature and publishing, motion pictures, television and radio), as well as word of mouth. Some become the de facto "trademark" or "signature" of the person or character with whom they originated, and can be instrumental in the typecasting (beneficially or otherwise) of a particular actor.

According to Richard Harris, a psychology professor at Kansas State University who studied why people like to cite films in social situations, using film quotes in everyday conversation is similar to telling a joke and a way to form solidarity with others. "People are doing it to feel good about themselves, to make others laugh, to make themselves laugh", he said. He found that all of the participants in his study had used film quotes in conversation at one point or another. "They overwhelmingly cited comedies, followed distantly by dramas and action adventure flicks." Horror films, musicals and children's films were hardly ever cited.[1]

On The Top Of The World...

NASA's Astronomy Picture of the DayNot long ago, I added a new feature to this website called "Astro Pic of the Day." This addition is visible right now in the left-most column of the home page and brings you the daily photo displayed on NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day page.

Thanks to some creative coding and the services of InfinitelyRemote.com I have been able to harvest NASA's daily image and present it here. I encourage you to click on those daily images to see them in their High-Rez splendor and read their descriptions for a very interesting look into the universe in which we live. In the words of the NASA source page:

Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.

Today's offering was a very interesting video feed that shows a real-time view of the Earth from the ISS (International Space Station.) Not wishing to lose such an awesome "Window on the World," I have chosen to share it here:

ISS High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment


Live streaming video by Ustream

View the "Where is the International Space Station" Map

***QUICK NOTES ABOUT HDEV VIDEO***
Black Image = International Space Station (ISS) is on the night side of the Earth.
Gray Image = Switching between cameras, or communications with the ISS is not available.
No Audio = Normal. There is no audio on purpose. Add your own soundtrack.


For a display of the real time ISS location plus the HDEV imagery, visit here: http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/HDEV/

The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment aboard the ISS was activated April 30, 2014. It is mounted on the External Payload Facility of the European Space Agency’s Columbus module. This experiment includes several commercial HD video cameras aimed at the earth which are enclosed in a pressurized and temperature controlled housing. Video from these cameras is transmitted back to earth and also streamed live on this channel. While the experiment is operational, views will typically sequence though the different cameras. Between camera switches, a gray and then black color slate will briefly appear. Since the ISS is in darkness during part of each orbit, the images will be dark at those times. During periods of loss of signal with the ground or when HDEV is not operating, a gray color slate or previously recorded video may be seen.
Analysis of this experiment will be conducted to assess the effects of the space environment on the equipment and video quality which may help decisions about cameras for future missions. High school students helped with the design of some of the HDEV components through the High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) program. Student teams will also help operate the experiment. To learn more about the HDEV experiment, visit here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/experiments/917.html
