Chaos in Toronto – Subway stations shut, buses and streetcars parked in garages!

This morning hundreds of thousand of Torontonians were stuck on subway and bus stations. Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) confirmed that 700,000 people couldn’t get to work following “an illegal job action” by transit workers. They also mentioned that on one particular line where normally there would be 1,300 buses, only seven buses were operating before 8 a.m. The Ontario Labour Board has quickly issued a ‘cease and desist’ order to all subway… [Read more…]

Cislo PI alebo neuspesna logika…

Number PIJedneho dna, par rokov dozadu, mi prebehlo hlavou, ze nekonecne cislo PI, musi automaticky obsahovat vsetky mozne ciselne kombinacie. To samozrejme znamena, ze vsetky veci z pocitaca prekonvertovane do ich digitalnej/ciselnej podoby sa musia v cisle PI niekde nachadzat. Napadlo ma hned to aj vyskusat v praxi. Z internetu som si stiahol 4 milliardy uz vypocitanych cisiel cisla PI v hexadecimalnej podobe… [Read more…]

Digital collage in couple of examples.

Picture20.jpgDigital collage is the technique of using computer tools in collage creation to encourage chance associations of disparate visual elements and the subsequent transformation of the visual results through the use of electronic media. History of technique of collage started with cubist painter, Pablo Picasso, who invented the collage technique in 1912 with his Still Life with Chair Caning (Nature-morte à la chaise cannée)[1], in which he pasted a patch of oilcloth with a chair-caning design to the canvass of the piece… [Read more…]

Flying the aircraft while pouring the tea!

bob-hoover.jpgThe pilot in this video is Bob Hoover (legend of the aviation community), demonstrating that you can pour a drink in the cockpit of a plane, while doing a barrel roll, not spilling a single drop. As you will see, Bob Hoover is an awesome pilot and one of the best in the flying game. From what I heard, he also performed this routine at Oshkosh in 1973. Here I have to say that friend of mine is heading for Oshkosh 2006 and I just wish I could go there with him… Anyhow, to give you little bit of history, Bob Hoover learned to fly at Nashville’s Berry Field while working at a local grocery store to pay for the flight training… [Read more…]

J. Horvath a P. Jablonicky na New York Pro 2006

Jaroslav_Horvath_-_Prejudging Individual Compulsories7.jpgZaznam zo sutaze New York Pro, ktora sa konala 20 Maja, 2006 v Tribeca Performing Arts Centere v New Yorku. Jaroslav Horvath opat pobil Pavla Jablonickeho, ktory sa aspon mne osobne zdal hrozne strhany. Za kulturistikov je vela driny a sebazapierania, ale Pavol Jablonicky sa mi prave na tejto sutazi nezdal to prave orechove. Ale to sa nam to diskutuje pri hranolkach s vyprazanym syrom, ze? Cize jeho formu uz nejdem dalej rozoberat. Pavol skoncil na peknom 10-tom mieste v dobrej konkurencii a na Americkej pode, kde sa europskym sutaziacim zriedka podari umiestnit do 6teho miesta.

The Architecture of Moscow – Unrealised projects.

01.jpgThe Architecture of Moscow – Unrealised projects. The Architecture of Moscow from the 1930s to the early 1950s. Moscow architecture from the 1930s to the early 1950s undoubtedly occupies a central place in domestic construction of the socialist epoch. Its specific nature and scope is the most outstanding illustration of the socialist Utopia in architecture. This period saw the work of the greatest Soviet architects; B. Icfan, A. Schusev, I. Zholtovsky, the Vesnin brothers, I. Fomin, L. Rudnev, I. Golosov, V. Schuko. Among the far-reaching projections of the first stalinist “five year plans”, the 1935 General plan for the reconstruction of Moscow overshadowed all others… [Read more…]

How to build a working ruby laser…

laser_0 (Custom).jpgThe incredible ruby ray is the hottest scientific discovery of the decade, but practical uses are still scarce. Here’s your chance to join the search. IT MAY sound like science fiction, but it’s really science fact: You can build a working ruby laser. It could be the most challenging and rewarding home workshop project that you have ever tackled. A ruby laser is a source of coherent light. All of the light waves in the pencil-thin, bright-red ruby laser beam are in phase or in step with each other. This extraordinary property of the laser beam shared by no other light source has spurred a world-wide search for practical uses…. [Read more…]

David Gilmour v Massey Hall, Toronto.

David Gilmour Ak ste mali take stastie ako ja, v 5 milionovom meste dostat sedacku do pol roka dopredu vypredanej haly s kapacitou len 2000 ludi, tak viete ze ste asi svedkami niecoho velmi specialneho. Gilmour a jeho 6 clenna skupina, kde sme na klavesach mali to stastie vidiet clena Pink Floydu Richarda Wrighta a tiez ex-Roxy gitaristu Phila Manzera, hrala plne 3 hodiny…  [Read more…]

Svalovica az na druhy den po treningu?

Muscles - BicepsOneskorena intenzivna bolest svalov, tiez nazyvana aj ‘Svalovkou’ ci ‘Svalovicou’, je velmi dobre znama vsetkym nedelnym sportovcom. Vynimkou vsak nie su ani profesionalny atleti podrobeny novemu druhu ci typu treningu. Niekedy je tato bolest svalov natolko silna, ze je mylne povazovana za natiahnutie, ci ine serioznejsie poskodenie svalu ci sliach… [Read more…]

Blue Man Group v Toronte

Blue Man Group

 Kratky zaznam z navstevy Blue Man Group v Panasonic Theatre 22 Marca 2006 tu v Toronte… Neviem ako by som najlepsie opisal tuto skupinu divadelnikov hudobnikov… Dalo by sa povedat ze je vela dovodov si neoblubit Blue Man Group. Su hlucny, vystredny, eklekticky a ich humor je rozhodne intelektualny.Takto povedane to znamena asi tolko, ze vela ludi odchadzalo z vystupenia neohureny a ako poznam svojich severo-americkych kolegov, urcite si par islo aj vypytat naspat svojich 54 dolarov za vystupenie, ked ani po 15 tich minutach stale nevedeli o co vlastne ide.

Kulturista Jaroslav Horvath, v Toronte

Jaroslav Horvath“Ako pokracuje dieta, kulturista je az ku korenom svojho bytia suzovany hladom. Zpociatku ma hlad mnoho foriem, vybavujete si farby a chute zakazanych jedal, mate rozne prestavy… ale mozog – zatial – odolava… Dalsim predlzovanim diety hlad neuproste podkopava zbytky sil. Mozog vysiela poplasne signaly do zmuceneho tela, kulturista ledva pletie nohami, chcel by spat, a len zelezna vola ho prinuti ist do posilovne trenovat. Ked sa uz unavu nedari zahnat volou, je treba sa s nou zmierit. Popieranie hladu a vycerpania v kulturistickej diete je nekompromisny boj vole proti sebe.” .. uryvok z knihy kulturistu Libora Minarika – Krucek od vrcholu.Na uvod mi dovolte predstavit najuspesnejsieho slovenskeho kulturistu Jaroslava Horvatha.

Do Prdele s Nabozenstvom

clanok_foto4.jpgVolny preklad clanku “F*ck Religion” z online casopisu ShoutWire, ktory sposobil vlnu zmiesanych reakcii od ludi z celeho sveta. Roky dozadu, nie ale zas az tak davno co som ja sam prisiel na svet, jeden velmi znamy clovek napisal jednu pomerne super pesnicku. Volal sa John Lennon a skladbu nazval “Imagine” – “Predstav Si”. V tejto skladbe bola veta, ktora ma mozno aj viac pravdy dnes ako v dobe ked bola napisana. Tato veta bola: “Imagine no religion” – “Predstav si svet bez nabozenstva”. [Read more…]
