Virtue/Moir and Davis/White: Vertical Lift Comparision

***THE DESCRIPTION BELOW IS NOT MINE, IS MADE BY FRIEND OF MINE. SHE STUDIED PHYSICS AND FIGURE SKATING THECNIQUE.


TESSA AND SCOTT -CARMEN -SKATE CANADA 2012

1) Tessa prepares slender -as if she was preparing for a vertical -and Scott gives the base.

2) Tessa is resting on Scott’s right shoulder; in split she gives the impetus to get vertical. NOW soars high in both legs with her strength. Scott accompanies the movement.

3) Same thing in step 3. Notice that Scott’s feet are always perfectly aligned, even in the following points.

4) Tessa is on. Now, since the position, to rhyme such, requires a considerable work of abdominal, Scott supports one of the two legs of Tessa to make sure that she reaches alone its center of gravity balance.

5) Tessa bend her pelvis backward to seek balance. With the strength of the abdominal muscles, biceps and quadriceps remains on. Scott always gives support on his right shoulder (the only obvious support) while continuing to accompany with his hand.

6) Scott leaves Tessa’s leg, the lift is perfectly in balance, the two arrows signify the action-reaction that Scott and Tessa engaged one against the other to achieve the perfect barycentre

7) Due to the fact that Tessa has a perfect center of gravity (as mentioned above the pelvis) Scott unbalanced forces. The figure shows how the line connects perfectly Tessa’s shoes with the midpoint of Scott’s sprrad eagle legs. The lift in fact, works mechanically.

MERYL AND CHARLIE -SHERAZADE -FIGURE CLASSIC 2013

1) Charlie is on the verge of taking Meryl in an “embrace”. Meryl in turn clings to the back of Charlie. Note already the 4 points of support that Meryl has.

2) Charlie puts a hand over Meryl and one beneath her, announcing that he’ll turn it over. Meanwhile, Meryl is always resting both arms on his back.

3) Charlie turns Meryl.

4) While he turns her, he lift her up.

5) Note that we are already seeing the first support which will be those of the lift. Meryl has her whole arm around the shoulders of Charlie.

6) Meryl is completely in a comfortable position. Again with the 4 points of support, both Charlie’s shoulders, and his arms.

7) Now she can raise her legs.

8) Charlie mentions to remove the arm and here already it messes up the balance. Note in fact the two feet of Charlie begin to have a different slant.

9) This is pretty obvious (unfortunately the video quality does not allow it at the most) that the two feet of Charlie are on two different imaginary lines. This is obviously due to the difference in weight unloaded on two feet, which in turn is due to the complete lack of gravity in this lift is not by chance, if it joins an imaginary line between the center of Charlie’s legs and Meryl’s feet, you do not get a straight line.

10) Meryl mentions for a second to leave the left arm from Charlie, while maintaining two supports behind his back and on both Charlie’s shoulders with the other arm. The imbalance between the two feet persists.

11) After less than a second when Meryl pulled off her arm, Charlie takes Meryl to bring her down.


I want to clarify that we are not talking of cleaning, which comes after workouts and workouts. We talk about the basic physics of forces must balance, and those, if the lift has been built in a certain way, will never change.
Both lifts, go ahead to check the protocols, were judged to level 4, although one is easier than the other. In fact, Scott says more MASS (obviously Tessa has a mass much more pronounced then Meryl) and must perfectly balance the weight on the tails of the blades, across Tessa, has a much more difficult position, she has only one support and must find her own center of gravity with the force of the abdomen and pelvis (while Meryl has the support of both of the two arms behind the back of Charlie himself, has no center of gravity and therefore did not need to use her muscles. center of gravity is in fact its about Charlie.

Sooooooo.

My Hunter’s Item Level went from 353 to 362 and my Priests I dont even know what hers was but now its 373. Doing Dragon Soul tomorrow with my Priest and the guild but wanted to try out the LFR tonight with my hunter. I need 11 more item levels to do it on my hunter. =\ And I have class night, suckkkssss D:

The other night I couldn’t sleep. This has happened occasionally over the last few months. Throughout my life I’ve generally been a good sleeper, but now sometimes my mind gets stuck ruminating over all the things I need to do. 

I figured the best way to resolve this problem would be to accomplish some things. Then, even if I have a lot remaining, my mind should be calm because it should know that I did what I could.

So Tuesday evening I accomplished a lot of work work - that is, stuff for my job. At 11:30 pm I emailed off some short pieces that were due last Friday. Yay me!

Wednesday (yesterday) evening I accomplished house things, so many that I get to do a bulleted list.

  • cooked dinner (tuna casserole);
  • washed all the dishes piled in the sink, including 43 cat food can lids, and ran the dishwasher;
  • cleaned the kitchen counters and the tops of the microwave and the printer (yes, a printer is not a kitchen tool, but it sits on the breakfast bar part of the counter, and Lindy sits on it);
  • cleaned the sink, including the yucky slimy stuff around the drain plug;
  • took a load of my clothes out of the dryer and folded them (put them away Thursday morning); took a finished load of towels out of the dryer and left them in the basement because had too many other things to carry upstairs; put another load of towels and sheets into washer and then the dryer so they are now dry and waiting to be taken out; put a load of delicates into the washer so they are now waiting to be taken out and hung up;
  • fed all the cats;
  • refilled the containers of dry cat food;
  • completely emptied 2 of the 3 litterboxes in the hot tub room and refilled them with clean litter;
  • took out 3 bags of trash and one recyclable empty litter jug;
  • moved some miscellaneous things into the laundry room to stay out of the way until they can go elsewhere (2 empty litter buckets, a full bag of empty cans for 4Paws);
  • put out a clean dish towel;
  • took the 10 seconds needed to finally hook one refrigerator shelf bracket firmly where it belongs so that it will stop tilting;
  • made up some sets of newspaper pages for future litter box scoopings.

I did have to leave a cutting board, one pan, and some cat food plates and cans in the sink because I was out of space in the dishwasher and dish drainer.

All of this, including short breaks for eating dinner and talking to The Kid, took almost 3 hours. When I finally sat down on the couch with the laptop, Dorie and Lady B immediately claimed their spots on my lap and legs. “It’s about time, Human!”
