Building the Pyramids of Egypt with Artificial Stones
** Subtitles available (english, french and polish) ** Prof. Joseph DAVIDOVITS presents, in this 1h20 conference, his famous theory on how the Egyptians pyramids were built with re-agglomerated limestone. This conference was recorded in 2008 representing the knowledge of that time. Since then, recent scientific studies using very powerful and modern equipment found the ultimate evidence that the pyramids stones are synthetic.

Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting (PBF) construction cost analysis
Our view is that Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting (PBF) sits within a performance management framework consisting of three components (the other two being Performance Reporting and Dimensional Profitability) where organisations can seamlessly link top-down, strategic targets to financial and operational forecasts and report performance against such targets. Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting (PBF) should serve to support the business in understanding how its on-going activities contribute to delivering its future longer term strategy. It is a method for allocating scarce resources in-line with the strategic intent of the business and for planning actions to help it meet its strategic goals in response to changing circumstances. The role of each element of planning, budgeting and forecasting is outlined below: 1. CREATE THE RIGHT ORGANISATIONAL CULTURE AND WAYS OF WORKING 2. INTEGRATE THE P.B.F PROCESS, LEVERAGING HIGH QUALITY DATA P PLANNING B BUDGETING F FORECASTING 3. DEPLOY EFFECTIVE AND SCALABLE TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS Technology is moving from providing wide, impacting all areas of the business and the data governance should reflect this.The process must embrace Big Data and be utilised to deliver the strategic goals.A fully integrated performance management framework is essential to provide corporate visibility of the activities that directly deliver growth, and provide a clear framework for determining how to continuously allocate resources to support the strategy.one-off static analysis to a more regular,quicker and dynamic enabler in the process.Cloud solutions are enabling real-time reporting with continuous improvement embedded at a cheaper cost, which enables increased effectiveness and efficiency. 4 TODAY’S WINNERS ARE THOSE WITH THE MOST INSIGHTFUL GRASP OF THEIR DATA The execution of business strategy through the PBF process is hampered by unreliable data. The challenges faced by organisations with regards to data quality is highlighted by the 45 percent of survey respondents who felt data quality was the single biggest impediment to the effective and efficient use of external data. In my experience, poor quality data has resulted in Finance overriding numbers produced by Operations, and updating the business’s budgets and forecasts with projections based on intuition and experience. This kind of process produces a budget and forecast that the business does not feel they own. I have seen previously-successful businesses fail as their environment becomes increasingly complex. agility in planning, as well as quicker and more accurate decisions across the organisation.Budgeting is one example where there is currently very little integration between Finance and other functions, resulting believe the incorporation of external data results insignificant improvements to forecasting accuracy.

How to Achieve Your Most Ambitious Goals | Stephen Duneier | TEDxTucson
How you define Stephen Duneier depends on how you came to know him. Some define him as an expert institutional investor, while others know him as a large scale installation artist, avid outdoorsman, professor, decision strategist, coach, business leader, mindfulness extremist, author, speaker, daredevil or Guinness world record holder. In his talk, Stephen explains that what truly defines him aren't titles, but an approach to decision making that transformed him from someone who struggled with simple tasks to a guy who is continuously achieving even his most ambitious dreams. For thirty years, he has applied cognitive science to investing, business and life. The result has been the turnaround of numerous institutional businesses, career best returns for managers who have adopted his methods, the development of a $1.25 billion dollar hedge fund and a rapidly shrinking bucket list. Mr. Duneier teaches graduate courses on Decision Analysis in UCSB’s College of Engineering. His book, AlphaBrain is due for release in early 2017 from Wiley & Sons. Through Bija Advisors, he helps business leaders improve performance by applying proven, proprietary decision-making methods to their own processes. His artwork has been featured around the world and is represented by the Sullivan Goss Gallery. As Commissioner of the League of Professional Educators, Duneier is using cognitive science to alter the landscape of American education.

Out of the Fiery Furnace - Episode 2 - Swords and Plough Shares
From the Stone Age to the era of the silicon chip — metals and minerals have marked the milestones of our civilization. OUT OF THE FIERY FURNACE traces the story of civilization through the exploitation of metals, minerals and energy resources. Renowned radio and BBC television commentator Michael Charlton hosts seven, one-hour programs filmed in more than 50 different parts of the world. This very unusual public television series combines the disciplines of history, science, archeology and economics in order to explore the relationship between technology and society. The development of iron brings about the collapse of the Bronze Age and mankind shifts from agriculture to industry. From this point, mastery over metals forms the basis of history's greatest civilizations. This episode highlights the value of metal in ancient China and Greece. You'll tour ruins of mining operations in Spain and are invited to ponder the world's first technological empire — Rome.

INTRODUCTION The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II which is a single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole fighters is UNDERGOING FINAL DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING by the United States. The pentagon began the F 35 program in 2001 with an aim to develop a cost effective replacement for the u.s. military’s f-15 fighters, f-16 and f-18 bombers and reconnaissance aircraft, and a-10 close air support warplanes. Apart from United States,the primary customer and financial backer, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, Canada, Turkey, Australia, Norway and Denmark are also part of the program. Many other nations like Japan and Israel are also deploying the fighters. The nine major partner nations, including the U.S, plan to acquire over 3,000 F-35s through 2035, which, if delivered will make the F-35 one of the most numerous jet fighters. The fighter aircraft will be in service till 2050. On 2 August 2016, the U.S. Air Force declared its first squadron of F-35A fighters combat-ready. S 400 Triumph is an anti-aircraft weapon system developed by Russia's Almaz Central Design bureau in the 1990s as an upgrade of the s-300 family. it has been in service with the Russian armed forces since 2007. It is designed to defend against aircrafts including 5th generation stealth fighters ,bombers, awacs, cruise missiles and ballistic missile. It is considered one of the most power anti aircraft defense system in the world. In this video Defense Updates analyze the outcome when F 35 is pitted against S 400 SPECIFICATIONS Here is a list of specifications of F 35 and S 400 respectively. OPTIONS In a combat environment , F 35 has the following options to defeat S 400. 1. OUT RUN 2. OUT MANEUVER A MISSILE 3. STEALTH TO AVOID DETECTION 4. USE EW SUIT TO JAM S 400 5. LONG RANGE PREEMPTIVE STANDOFF STRIKE We will analyze each of these one by one and rate the chances F 35 against S 400 on a scale of 1 to 5. OUT RUN But in case of F 35 , the tactics will be useless since it has a top speed of only 1.6 mach and missiles deployed by s 400 have hypersonic speeds ranging from 6 Mach to 14 Mach. For example, 40N6 missile has a speed of 14 Mach. OUT MANEUVER F 35 is not designed to be a great dogfighter and lacks agility when compared to fighters like F 22 or SU 35. The need for the small F 35 to carry a heavy range of internal engines, fuel and weapons has resulted in what aviation experts labels a ‘high wing loading’. essentially, the wings are small in relation to its weight and this impedes maneuverability. F 35 also has a sluggish rate of climb when compared to modern fighters. STEALTH The trump card of F 35 against any air defense system is that , it is a stealthy aircraft. But F 35’s simplified airframe is far less of the ‘shaped stealth’ found in the F 22. This implies a much greater reliance on radar-absorbing materials. * Against x-band radars, it is only stealthy (lo) from front and rear; * Against s-band radar, it is stealthy from narrow front aspect, * Against l-band radar. limited reduction is achieved from direct front The nabob svn & zebu m have a claimed capability against stealth aircraft. Keeping in view the different aspects, F 35 will be vulnerable in a combat scenario. EM SUIT All three variants of the F 35 carry Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars with sophisticated electronic attack capabilities, including false targets, network attack, advanced jamming and algorithm-packed data streams. This system allows the F 35 to reach well-defended targets and suppress enemy radars that threaten the F 35. LONG RANGE PREEMPTIVE STANDOFF STRIKE S 400 is designed to be mobile. All system components are carried by self-propelled wheeled all-terrain chassis. Even if detected, S 400 will be a very very tough nut to crack. Just one S 400 system can control up to 72 launchers, with a maximum of 384 missiles. This means that system has enough ammunition & targeting strength to take down a saturation attack.Also an important aspect is that for aerodynamic target and ballistic targets, the minimum engagement range is only 2 and 5 km respectively . A separate independent air defense system 42S6 Morfey , is being developed by Russia’s Almaz-Antey corporation. This system is designated as short-range air defense system, and will protect the s-400 from various threats at their terminal phases. CONCLUSION As per our analysis, F 35 will find it difficult to operate in areas protected by S 400. This means the not only us but the partner nations will find it hard to gain air supremacy, which is vital in modern conflicts.

Ancient DNA and the new science of the human past
Ancient DNA and the new science of the human past Air date: Wednesday, September 21, 2016, 3:00:00 PM Category: WALS - Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Runtime: 01:05:46 Description: NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Beginning in 2010, it became practical to sequence whole genomes from DNA extracted from ancient human boness, and to analyze the data to understand changes in biology over time. Since that timethen, the amount of ancient DNA data has increased at an extraordinary rate, with the number of samples with at least one-fold genome coverage being 5 five in 2013, 18 in 2014, and 116 in 2015. Dr. Reich will begin his lecture by describing how present-day Europeans derive from a fusion highly divergent ancestral populations as different from each other as are Europeans and East Asians. He will then summarize the history of modern humans in Europe over the approximately 45,000 years since they first arrived. He will next describe the spread of farming populations from the Near East over the last twelve thousands12,000 years. He will finally conclude by describing explaining how the analysis of ancient DNA has led to. some of the insights about human biological change over time.

Energy Seminar | John Deutch
The declining cost of hybrid electric systems (HES) involving solar, wind, and energy storage suggests that carbon free (or nearly free) electricity generation is becoming competitive with combined cycle natural gas. The distinctive contribution of this article is the suggestion that the best way to establish the credibility of the HES pathway is to organize an early large-scale demonstration of the operation and cost of a carbon free (or nearly free) HES ability to reliably meet the electricity demand of a relatively large service area rather than rely on government sponsored large scale demonstration projects or regulatory mandates compelling deployment of storage. This policy recommendation is supported by an original analysis of the cost of the HES to meet a demand load at a particular location in the ERCOT service area, and the sensitivity of this cost to one-hundred percent availability is reported. Presented by John Deutch. Paper Co-Authored by Marco Ferrara and Yet-Ming Chiang. Speaker Biography: John Deutch is an Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Mr. Deutch has been a member of the MIT faculty since 1970, and has served as Chairman of the Department of Chemistry, Dean of Science, and Provost.

Dissecting gamma frequency activity during human memory processing
Read the paper at: http://bit.ly/2lT1D6r Gamma frequency activity (30–150 Hz) reflects neural processes supporting cognitive functions. Kucewicz et al. use a large dataset of human intracranial EEG recordings to isolate two distinct types of gamma activity induced during memory tasks. These may serve as biomarkers for mapping and modulation of specific neurophysiological processes.

Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie State of VA Community Town Hall
Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie hosted his first State of VA Community Town Hall on September 27, 2018. The secretary and eight guest panelists highlighted the activity and direction of VA since his appointment to lead the department in July. “VA exists to make life easier for Veterans,” Wilkie recently told the crowd of Veterans at the AMVETS annual convention. “So my prime directive is customer service. When a Veteran comes in to VA, it is not up to him to get VA to say ‘yes.’ It is up to VA to give the Veteran tools.” The secretary and panelists discussed how VA is focused on becoming the leader in customer experience and improving services to our nation’s Veterans through various initiatives such as engagement with community partners, leaders, advocates, state/county VA departments, Department of Defense, Veteran Service Organizations, and community Veterans engagement boards. The secretary engaged Veterans directly during this webcast’s live question and answer session. All attendants were invited to submit questions during the webcast. Panelists: Jim Wartski – Veterans Experience Office Dr. Richard Stone – Veterans Health Administration Dr. Paul Lawrence – Veterans Benefits Administration Randy Reeves – National Cemetery Administration Alfie Alvarado-Ramos – National Association of State Directors of Veterans Affairs Herman Breuer – National Association of County Veterans Service Officers Anthony Wickham – National Guard Stephen Austin – Army Reserve

Rittenhouse S model, Royal Hayes
Royal plays a new Rittenhouse hardtail S model through a Marsh Twin Reverb replica 2 x 12 combo amp. weighing just 6lbs. 15oz. is this beautiful hand crafted Sonic Blue Rittenhouse hardtail S model, with Klein Epic pickups, large headstock, mild aging with gorgeous weather checking into the real Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish, slab vintage type Indian Rosewood fingerboard, a fine setup and "killer" vintage tones. You want a superb hardtail? This is the best of 'em. The pickups are Klein Epic Series 1963 , 7.25 radius, med C rosewood slab neck. WOLFE GUITARS, Jupiter, Florida TEL: 561-746-2209 e-mail: [email protected] www.wolfeguitars.com From Klein's web site: Our Epic Series 1963 Pickups use Original Fender Alloy Alnico 5 Magnets From 1963. We sent Original magnets from a 1963 pickup to an Independent Laboratory for Metallurgical Chemical Analysis Testing. We then contracted direct with our magnet manufacturer to get the Alnico 5 magnets Specially Poured to the exact composition of the Originals. We are the only manufacturer who offers this. Pure, Sweet, and Authentic Tone. - Wire, our 42ga Heavy Formvar wire is not just stock wire. We have sent dozens of samples of wire from early stratocasters for analysis. We get our 42ga Heavy Formvar built to the exact specs of the samples we have had analyzed. Exact Resistance, Exact ID & OD, & Color matching. Our 42ga Heavy Formvar Wire is the most authentic and accurate Magnet Wire Available. Our 1963 42ga Heavy Formvar wire for the 1963 Spec is ONLY USED ON THE 1963 Models. Authentic as it can possibly get. Tone, the tone of our Authentic 1963 pickups is a dead ringer. For those who don't know that phrase, it's a complete recreation. 100% identical sonically and tonally to the original 1963 stratocaster's that fetch tens of thousands of dollars in today's markets. The bass is tight for a matter of speaking, not flubby. The mid range is strong and powerful, not to the sense of an overwound pickup, but that round bell curve tone that pushes tube amps. The treble frequencies are clear with just enough brightness but not too dark when they compress. The overall summary of the set would be described as a medium to a medium plus vintage pickup. Not the bright strats and certainly not dark. These have all the woody tones - Compression, the current Alnico 5 alloy is very strong, very bright, & has quite a brittle edginess. One of the first things that is noticeable is that original magnets aren't as strong. This is not due to demagnetizing, but it's due to the chemical composition. 1963 stratocasters are very well known for having a very big and clean driven sound. These pickups offer you that, big, open, and driven sound. Here at Klein Pickups, when we reproduce a pickup 100%, we don't put our own spin, our own tweaks, our own interpretations on it, nothing. We reproduce a pickup 100% the same as the original, every component being 100% identical to the original. Now is your chance to play with the same big round fat strat tones found in Original 1963 stratocasters. We tested these pickups in multiple strats, Alder, Ash, Mahogany, Basswood, in both Maple & Rosewood necks. There was no combination that did not sound excellent. All pickups are "Flash Potted" to avoid microphonic squeal but still retains the natural characteristics just like original pickups. Output Neck 6.1k, Middle 6.2k, Bridge 6.0k How Bout That!!!

Gravity dam
A gravity dam is a massive sized dam fabricated from concrete or stone masonry. They are designed to hold back large volumes of water. By using these materials, the weight of the dam alone is able to resist the horizontal pressure of water pushing against it. Gravity dams are designed so that every dam section is stable, independent of any other dam section. The most common classification of gravity dams is by the materials composing the structure: This video is targeted to blind users.

Ball Mill Critical Speed & Working Principle
https://www.911metallurgist.com/blog/ball-mill Learn about Ball Mill Critical Speed and its effect on inner charge movements. The effect of Ball Mill RPM speed going from sub-critical to super-critical helps understand the Ball Mill Working Principles of ball-on-ball VS ball-on-shell grinding. The Motion of the Ball Charge The input energy in ball milling is that applied by the drive to impart motion to the mill charge. Since the usefull output is that which goes into breakage of the feed material, it is apparent that it is the point at which the energy of motion of the media is dissipated that is of concern. Single Particle Motion: The outer row of balls being acted upon directly by the mill shell is prominent it, determining the motion of the entire charge. Besides dissipating a significant fraction of the total energy consumed by the mill (for example, the outer row of 50 mm diameter balls in a 4 meter diameter mill consumes close to one tenth of the total power delivered by the drive in being lifted and dropped), the outer row is the only portion of the charge in direct contact with the shell, and so forms the key link for energy transmission to the remainder of the charge. The only assumptions required for determination of the single ball trajectory are a coefficient of friction between the ball and mill lining, and unobstructed free fall after movement away from the lining commences. Although recognizably somewhat idealized, two interesting assertions were noted as a result of the analysis, as follows: a) Particle trajectory is independent of mill diameter. Although simply a confirmation of the basis for use of percent of critical, the most common form for describing mill rotational speed, the implication is more far-reaching. If 75 percent of critical speed is considered desirable for efficient grinding in a 2.4 meter (8 foot) diameter mill, then the same will be true for a 5.0 meter (15½ foot) diameter mill. At least in terms of effective charge motion, then, there is no justification for resorting to lower mill critical speeds at larger mill diameters. b) Particle trajectory is highly sensitive to liner lifter face angle. As can be seen in Figures 1 and 2, a change of lifter angle from zero (vertical) to thirty degrees results in a greatly subdued trajectory. The implications for machine performance are first; that power draw will vary with different original liner designs, as well as throughout the wear life, depending on the wear pattern; and secondly, that a desireable trajectory, even if achieved by the original liner design, will not be maintained unless the wear pattern is such that a consistent overall mill lining profile is maintained. Complete Charge Motion: Extension of ball charge motion studies to include the entire charge encompasses numerous complexities beyond both the scope of this paper and the extent of present investigations. However, a few observations considered relevant to this discussion are listed below: a) Ball charge level has a significant effect on overall charge motion. The tendency of the charge to slip back along the rising side of the shell is reduced as charge level increases, until reaching between 30 to 40 percent of mill volume (in one particular test mill) where slip ceases. Increased charge level (given fixed critical speed) beyond this level results in more cataracting (flying) as opposed to cascading (rolling) action of the balls, but only to the extent of about 50 percent of mill volume where swelling and crowding obliterates cataracting action by leaving no space for free falling. b) A definite transverse segregation of ball sizes is visible in the cross-section of a normally graded charge, with the large balls found at the perimeter at low speeds, and at the charge centre for high speeds. The reverse is of course true for the small balls, and more importantly, for coarse ore particles, which are more closely associated with the small balls in their dimensions. c) Increased lifter height, or reduced ball diameter, results in higher trajectories of the outer row of balls. However, within the range of normal (North American) operating practice (i.e. 35 - 40% mill loading, and 70 - 80% of critical speed) and for ball-size approximating the lifter height, the trajectories of the outer row are relatively unaffected by subsequent rows. This may be expected due to the lack of direct support from a lifter and the lower percentage of critical speed at reduced diameter.

Киммерийцы, скифы и сарматы в генетическом исследовании кочевников железного века
Исследования демографических изменений на обширных территориях Евразийской степи в бронзовом и железном веках продолжаются. Этот район был заселен различными кочевыми популяциями, которые оказали значительное влияние на культурное развитие как в Азии, так и в Европе. Самыми известными из западных евразийских групп являются представители ямной культуры. Прошлые геномные исследования выявили значительные миграции кочевых народов связанных с ямной культурой бронзового века, по всей Евразии, около 5 тыс. лет назад. Миграции привнесли кавказские компоненты в более поздние популяции Европы. Также в Центральной Европе ямная культура была родоначальницей культуры боевых топоров, названной по отличительной традиции класть в мужские захоронения каменные топоры. После чего генетические следы ямной культуры были обнаружены во многих последующих древних и современных популяциях. Однако Причерноморско-Каспийская степь имела решающее значение не только для миграции раннего бронзового века, но и для последующих передвижений и демографических преобразований в позднем бронзовом и железном веках, между 1800 г. до н.э. и 400 г. н.э. Этот период охватывает развитие этнокультурного объединения срубной культурно-исторической общности и алакульского варианта андроновской культуры, около 1800-1200 гг. до н. э., связанных с небольшими поселениями от Урала до Приднепровской возвышенности. А примерно с 1000 г. до н. э. в западной части Причерноморско-Каспийской степи начали появляться предскифские кочевые группы, в том числе киммерийцы, известные из исторических источников. Несмотря на региональные различия и местные особенности, киммерийцы не были связаны с однородными типами археологических материальных культур. В седьмом веке до нашей эры их сменили скифы, которые вытеснили киммерийцев в Анатолию. Между 700 и 300 г. до н. э. скифы, представляющие собой скотоводческие, кочевые группы нового военизированного типа, доминировали в Причерноморско-Каспийской и Казахской степи, занимая площадь от Алтая до Карпат. Однако около 300 г. до н.э. их позиции значительно пошатнулись из-за усиления враждебных отношений с македонцами на западе и вторжения сарматов с востока. Сарматы и скифы, как считается, сосуществовали в течение нескольких столетий, но в конечном итоге произошло падение скифов под натиском сарматов. Сарматы, как полагают, состояли из ряда схожих кочевых групп, они и стали наиболее влиятельной политической силой на восточных окраинах Римской империи в те времена. А падение сарматов было связано с нападением готов, около 400 г. н.э., и последующим вторжением гуннов. Однако популяционные взаимодействия кочевников Причерноморско-Каспийской степи между собой остаются недостаточно изученными.

21. Exchanges, Brokers, Dealers, Clearinghouses
Financial Markets (2011) (ECON 252) As the starting point for this lecture, Professor Shiller contrasts the view of economics as the theory of the allocation of scarce resources with the view of economics as the study of exchange. After a discussion of the difference between brokers and dealers, he outlines the history of securities exchanges from ancient Rome, to the Amsterdam Stock Exchange and Jonathan's Coffee House in London, until the formation of the New York Stock Exchange. He complements this historic account with an overview of securities exchanges all over the world, covering India, China, Brazil, and Mexico. An example of a limit order book allows him to elaborate on the mechanics of trading at the National Association of Securities Dealers Automatic Quotation System (NASDAQ). Subsequently, he turns his attention to the growing importance of program trading and high frequency trading, but also discusses their impact on the stock market crash from October 19, 1987, as well as on the Flash Crash from May 6, 2010. When talking about fairness in financial markets, particularly with regard to the relation between private investors and brokers, he discusses the National Market System (NMS), the Intermarket Trading System (ITS), and consolidated quotation systems. He concludes this lecture with some reflections on the operations of dealers, addressing the role of inside information and the Gambler's Ruin problem. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
