Work in Progress wall & suspension lamp by Karman and Matteo Ugolini

The Italian design lighting producer Karman and the Designer Matteo Ugolini have teamed up again for a very interesting new interpretation of the shapes of a classic construction site lamp. The housing, of the Work in Progress called lamp, is made of white cast ceramics and is available as a wall lamp, or to be suspended a pendant from the ceiling.

Kármán Vortex Street - Digital visualization and Satellite Image

Kármán Vortex Street is a repeating pattern of swirling vortices caused by the unsteady separation of flow of a fluid around blunt bodies. 

The first image is a visualization of the vortex street behind a circular cylinder in are, the flow is made visible through release of oil vaopour in the air near the cylinder. 

The second image is a satellite image of a vortex street caused by wind flowing around the Juan Fernandez Islands of the Chilean coast.

-bazı yazarlar var, olduğu gibi içinizi yazmış sayfalarca.. sonra bir şiirin tek mısrasın da kalbinizi anlatmış. Çıkmazlarınızı, umutlarınızı, sevinçlerinizi yansıtmış. Okuduğunuz bir cümlede ‘geçmiş zamanda yüreğinize oturan ’ bir günü hatırlatmış. Bazen gözünüze dolan yaşın sebebi bazen ufak bir tebessümün nedeni olmuş. Düşünceler sarıyor etrafınızı böyle olunca..Doğru bildiğiniz şeyler de yanlış çıkıyor ve biz sanki hayatımızın demir başı'ymış gibi bir insanın peşinden koşuyoruz. Aldığımız onca darbeye rağmen vazgeçmiyoruz..kalbimizden geçip yüzümüze yerleşen acıya rağmen olan hızımızla ona doğru koşuyoruz. Sonra her kapı yüzünüze kapanıyor öyle bir bir.. ve artık hiç açılmıyor o kapılar. Ama ne var biliyor musun ? 'Vazgeçtim’

Que ha de sucederme el día que no te tenga, el día que te hayas ido, el día que no te vuelva a ver, el día que el sol no salga ni un tantito, el día que todas las flores se marchiten, el día que las guitarras dejen de sonar, el día que homero simpson baje de peso, el día que Daria deje su ironía, el día que karman crezca, el día que el oxigeno deje de existir, el día que no pueda caminar o lo peor de todo ¡Qué será de mi el día que no me quieras!

The wake of a cylinder is a series of alternating vortices shed as the flow moves past. This distinctive pattern is known as a von Karman vortex street. The speed of the flow and the size of the cylinder determine how often vortices are shed. Incredibly, this pattern appears at scales ranging from the laboratory demo all the way to the wakes of islands. Von Karman vortex streets can even be seen from space. (Image credit: R.

Hani nererde o uğruna ölünülesi sevdalarımız
İhtimal düşünmek,bütün ihtimalsizliklere rağmen
Yok öyle Leyla, Mecnun olmak
Aşık olmak 
bir kapağın altındaki bedava, kazandınız yazma ihtimalini beklemek heyecanla
Ve hep tekrar tekrar denemek yok
işte sade şeyler, karman çorman her yer
Fotoğraflar renkli, lakin gülümsemeler sahte olmuş insanların yüzünde
En kötüsü de bu ya zaten, güzel yüzlerde yalancı gülümsemeler
Sahi yakan top birilerini fazla yaktığında, tehlike arz ettiği için midir nedir artık o da oynanmıyor sokaklarda
Martılar da ne zamandır simide hasret kalmış
Kimse simit atılmıyor artık martılara hamburger ekmeğinden atılıyor bir kaç parça,
Tamam tamam hadi sustum yeter bu kadar gevezelik ettiğim saat de geç oldu zaten gelen olmaz bu vakitten sonra  belki sabah olur

Blue Origin’s New Shepard relaunches for a second suborbital flight.

For the second time in as many months, Blue Origin successfully relaunched their New Shepard booster first flown in November.

The company posted a video to their website yesterday showing the successful January 22 flight, which reached an altitude of 63.2 miles, a mile higher than November’s flight. The flight profile remained the same, here the crew capsule boilerplate was released at apogee and parachuted to the ground.

It also marked the first time their booster has been reused for suborbital flight. Jeff Bezos, Blue Origin’s CEO, stated that refurbishment protocols were straight forward. The crew capsule’s parachutes were repacked, pyrotechnics were reloaded, and general avionics checks were performed on the booster. He also stated that the largest single change was in landing software used by the rocket.

Instead of targeting the direct center of the landing pad, the booster now takes into consideration its relative lateral movement. This way, the rocket isn’t fighting low-level winds or other circumstances that would push the booster off-course. Bezos compares it to a runway aiming for the centerline of a runway, but still landing even if it’s deviated a few feet from it.

The first test of New Shepard was in April, 2015. The flight and crew capsule reached an altitude of 58 miles, however, the booster lost pressure in its hydraulic system, and it crashed upon impact. November 23 saw a second test vehicle reach an altitude of 62.4 miles and successfully landed 11 minutes after launch.

This was the first time a rocket flew above the von Karman line, the internationally-defined boundary between the atmosphere and space, and returned successfully to the Earth. Blue Origin and SpaceX are both developing rockets that can be reused after flight. However, New Shepard is a suborbital rocket while the Falcon 9 is an orbital-class vehicle.

In 2005 she co-founded the organization “Women Journalists Without Chains” in order to promote human rights and freedom of expression. She has advocated for the banning of child marriage and for more female freedom, making a point of replacing the niqab she was wearing with a colourful hijab in public.
