Mesopotamia
— 

Abibifo civilisation.

It is believed the Mesopotamia created the 7-day week. This is  based on the movement of the sun, the moon and the planets.

Do the Akan people have a 7 day week based on the movement of the planetary bodies? Yes we do.

Do the current occupiers have a 7 day week based on the movement of the planetary bodies? No they don’t. 

The plotting of the movement of awia (sun) the osram (moon) and the kyinkyin nrsoma (planets) are all African concepts, Europeans took and never credited us for it.

This is the reason we call ourselves Kwesi/Akosua. Kwadwo/Adjoa. Kwabena/Abena. Kweku/Akua. Yaa/Yaw. Kofi/Efia. Kwame/Ama all based and named after the planetary bodies.

also worth mentioning - idk who of you have seen this, but on the app there is LIGHT VOTING. which means after each song you can give it 1-8,10,12 points and the average of all points corresponds to a colour, which is then used to light up landmarks in kyiv!! :) there’s a live webcam feed of these landmarks on the app, so it’ a really cool way to promote the city in an interactive way! it’s listed on the app as “OSRAM light voting”

Os sonhos mais absurdos sonhei

Ando dormindo mal nestas últimas semanas. O resultado surpreendente é que, muitas vezes eu sonho quando eu cochilo durante o dia. E numa dessas, eu me lembrei do sonho e de que eu acabei sonhando com coisas que não existem - geralmente o meu cérebro é pouco criativo. Se bem que eu tive uma idéia que seria útil se blogs existissem há 30 anos atrás, quando essas coisas ainda eram o fino da bossa. Mas não, nessa época, quis el Señor que eu apenas sujasse phraldas…
O fato é que eu sonhei que a prefeitura estava instalando postes de iluminação pública, dos grandes, com 5 pétalas. Assim:



Puxe pela memória se você já passou no carro do seus pais pela Marginal Tietê ou Pinheiros. Na Tietê era um show, tinham 2 fileiras de postes no canteiro central (um show de gasto de energia elétrica, com lâmpadas de mercúrio, bem entendido, desde então mudou muita coisa na marginal Tietê.)
O curioso é que existem dessas luminárias com 2, 3 (praticamente extintas em São Paulo) e algumas de outros tipos tem com 6 pétalas (ou 6 extremidades, não sei como se chama isso), na Av. Celso Garcia tem até com 8, mas com cinco eu nunca vi. Se eu tivesse tido essa idéia há 30 anos, os fabricantes poderiam até achar uma boa, já que o visual não é intragável. Mas sei lá onde andam (e quem seriam) os fabricantes dessas baghassas. Essas luminárias foram aposentadas à força nas marginais porquê estavam sendo roubadas por… marginais *risos* que as vendiam pro ferro-velho, e foram substituídas pelas pequenas em forma de “H” que existem hoje, que são de plástico e alumínio, mas essas, ainda estão na ativa em alguns lugares, como o Parque da Independência no Ipiranga, e a nossa querida Av. Nicolas Boer. Mas em nenhum lugar elas podem ser vistas melhor do que na Av. Brasil, em Suzano, entre o viaduto Ryu Mizuno e a Rua Prudente de Moraes, onde elas estão instaladas em postes muito mais baixos que os da marginal (obrigado, Google Street View).

EDIT: Agora serei entendido por parte do pessoal do… samba! Uma dessas luminárias está na sede da internacionalmente famosa G.R.E.S. Mangueira, na Rua Visconde de Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, e à pouca altura do chão, assim como as de Suzano.

Cree highlighted LED tries lighting market of water

The increasingly many general illumination adopts LED, in order to replace traditional steamed undervoltage and light. With technical progress, the policy of decline and environmental protection and energy saving of the cost is in the popularization of various countries, LED has entered the market of general illumination gradually. A few days ago, ended Rui electron and LED supplier Cree held marketing to move about in Shenzhen, intent to promote highlighted LED to enter the ordinary lighting market.

Cree global Peter Walker, manager of channel, introduce, Cree become company place oneself in 1987, research and develop in the world first blue light LED 1989, the sales amount in 2006 reached 423 million dollars, Nasdaq market value exceeded 2 billion dollars now. In March of this year, Cree just purchased LED supplier Hong Kong Cotco (China that individuals controlled interest in Huizhou through cash of 200 million dollars) Lighting equipment limited company, thus enter the lighting market of solid condition of China of snowball.


Peter Walker says, the highlighted LED Luminous efficacy of Cree was promoted constantly, XLamp XR-E series reached 70-80 Lumen/W last August, had reached 90-100 lumen/W especially this year. LED illumination has high efficiency, long life (50,000-70,000 hours) , directivity is good, indefectible, starts, pollution-free instant (have no Hg, Pb heavy metal) Advantage. Brightness ratio of LED offer 3 times 18 months ago, market price dropped by 30%. The highlighted application of LED market is that mine lamp, traffic are lighted at present, the color light and exterior illumination of large-area (street lamp, light of the tunnel, car parking light) ,The next goal is to enter the common illumination. HB LED lighting market will ignite in 2010.


Ai Rui lighting industry develops director Wu BingYan and says, highlighted LED (HB LED) at present Global and annual market is about 230 million dollars. Many HB LED suppliers such as Osram, Avago, Cree, Luminar, Nichia offer at present, it initiates highlighted LED to offer the condition for entering the lighting market that the production cost of the products drops. Cree is heavy-duty (above 1W) The intersection of HB LED and status that technology in a leading position, he believe utilize, end Rui in the intersection of Chinese and more thanth office and on-the-spot technical support of nearly 400, can promote the Chinese market that Cree LED lights in a more cost-effective manner.


End ChaoHui Yang, electronic sales manager of Rui, recommend, end Rui to be acting to fly promise, IR, special driving the chip by Micrel, NS, the intersection of Ann and the intersection of full of trees beautiful, ST and TI,etc. and many of LED Li Ling, lens (Lens) used in combination with Cree There are Dialight L2, Fraen and Asia sources, microcontroller Atmel, flying and thinking of Karl, NXP, auspicious Sa and TI,etc., downstream development and choice of the manufacturer are relatively wide.
