vorticity

Seven waterspouts align as lava from the Hawaiian volcano Kilauea pours into the ocean in this striking photo from photographer Bruce Omori. Like many waterspouts–and their landbound cousins dust devils–these vortices are driven by variations in temperature and moisture content. Near the ocean surface, air and water vapor heated by the lava create a warm, moist layer beneath cooler, dry air. As the warm air rises, other air is drawn in by the low pressure left behind. Any residual vorticity in the incoming air gets magnified by conservation of angular momentum, like a spinning ice skater pulling her arms in. This creates the vortices, which are made visible by entrained steam and/or moisture condensing from the rising air. (Photo credit: B. Omori, via HPOTD; submitted by jshoer)

instead of watching the SOTU...

I’m reading climate papers. This one is about storm tracks affecting continental Alaska, the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea:

“The strong formation area over the North American continental interior is largely a result of lee cyclogenesis behind the coastal mountain ranges, that is, cyclogenesis initiated by the conservation of potential vorticity (Holton 2004)” - Mesquita et al 2010

Vorticity is my new favorite term. I take it to mean the degree of vortexiness.

This is actually really interesting. I didn’t realize that nepal is very close to the earth chakra of the Crown. 

“The shift is happening!!!! No fear and follow your intuition. If you feel the desire to move, move! These are exciting times and earth is going through a major transition and literally is SHIFTING it’s plates due to the inner poles flip.

The ring of fire has been more active than ever. First Japans big quake, then Chilis volcano and now two huge quakes near the epicenter of the crown chakra.

If anyone has been having intense migraines or headaches, dizziness or light headed symptoms due to the crown chakras area shifting, temper to ground your energies.

Here is a great link as well as some photos of what’s been taking place recently. Being ‘in tune” with nature and having a conscious awareness on how we connect within our own vessels and bodies is how we can assist in this shift as well as avoid any physical uncomfortableness.

Nepal is near this crown chakra and this upcoming full moon is Scorpio. Below is a text with a link on more information on why this full moon is special.

“Kailas is the most sacred mountain in the Himalayas, and is the centre of the world crown chakra. Located in Tibet, it is the focus for the annual Scorpio full moon event, in April or May. For the Earth, and for all immortals, this moon marks the new year, in terms of global evolution. For those who have never worked with the lunar calendar, this particular full moon, associated with Mt. Kailas, is a good place to start.” Read more at: Darkness To Light 

Reader unquietcode asks:

I saw this post recently and it made me wonder what’s going on. If you look in the upper right of the frame as the camera submerges, you can see a little vortex of water whirring about. Even with the awesome power of the wave rolling forward a little tornado of water seems able to stably form. Any idea what causes this phenomenon?

This awesome clip was taken from John John Florence’s “& Again” surf video. What you’re seeing is the vortex motion of a plunging breaking wave. As ocean waves approach the shore, the water depth decreases, which amplifies the wave’s height. When the wave reaches a critical height, it breaks and begins to lose its energy to turbulence. There are multiple kinds of breaking waves, but plungers are the classic surfer’s wave. These waves become steep enough that the top of the wave  overturns and plunges into the water ahead of the wave. This generates the vortex-like tube you see in the animation. Such waves can produce complicated three-dimensional vortex structures like those seen in this video by Clark Little. Any initial variation in the main vortex gets stretched as the wave rolls on, and this spins up and strengthens the rib vortices seen wrapped around the primary vortex. (Source video: B. Kueny and J. Florence)

Literature is full of descriptions of monstrous whirlpools like Charybdis, which threatens Homer’s Odysseus. While it’s not unusual to see a small free vortex in bodies of water, most people would chalk boat-swallowing maelstroms up to literary device. But it turns out that, while there may not be permanent Hollywood-style whirlpools, there are several places in the world where the local tides, currents, and topology combine to produce turbulence, dangerously vortical waters, and even standing vortices on a regular basis. 

One example is the Corryvreckan, between the islands of Jura and Scarba off Scotland. In this narrow strait, Atlantic currents are funneled down a deep hole and then thrust upward by a pinnacle of rock that rises some 170 m to only 30 m below the surface. The swift waters and unusual topology produce strong turbulence near the surface and whirlpools pop up throughout the strait. Other “permanent” maelstroms, such as those in Norway and Japan, arise from tidal interactions with similar structures rising from the sea floor.

The world’s most powerful artificial tornado is part of the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. Though popular enough with visitors that the staff will bring out smoke generators to make it visible, the tornado was not built as an attraction - It’s actually part of the building’s fire protection system. The modern open design of the museum meant that conventional smoke removal systems were inadequate. Instead vorticity is generated in the central lobby with 144 wall-mounted jets. The angular velocity created by the jets is strongest at the middle, in the vortex core, due to conservation of angular momentum - exactly the way a spinning ice skater speeds up by pulling his arms in. The core of the vortex is a low pressure area, which draws outside air toward it - this is how the tornado pulls in smoke when there is a fire. The fan on the ceiling provides the pressure draw necessary for the smoke to be pulled up and out of the building at a supposed rate of 4 tons per minute. See the tornado in action here.

Vortex Fever! A dozen dichroic vortices comprise this irresistible marble by my friend, David Sigler of Galactic Glass. This is one of his first successful attempts at a “dodecahedron” vortex marble and my oh my is it a stunner. This style of marble requires an entire day to prep the sections and another day for the build. Woah! I will be posting a video to my instagram in the next day or two before it becomes available in the public gallery.

A drop of fluorescent dye falling into quiescent water forms fantastical structures that are a mixture of vorticity, turbulence, and molecular diffusion. The horseshoe-like shape near the front of the drop is a typical shape for two fluids strained by moving past one another. The main section of the drop billows outward like a parachute, but the turbulence of its wake stretches the dye into fine threads that quickly disperse in the water. (Photo credit: D. Quinn et al.)

Una fiamma che mi arde dentro, mi tormenta, mi brucia l’anima, è un dolce dolore che mi porta alla follia, mi piace il tuo lento e continuo tormento, mi avvolge in un vortice di colori e suoni, mi stordisce, sono pazzo, pazzo di te!

These are a few of the pages of Beyond the Black Thing. I made this magazine in 1978. Some copies were better than others, depending on the copy machine I was using. Beyond the Black thing comes out of

A Wrinkle in Time, Dada, Tristan Tzara, Andy Warhol, Iggy Pop, Feminism, Futurism, Vorticism, the Buzzcocks, Wilhelm Reich, anarchism and being a maid.

I was hoping to put it all in one post but there is not the room. Now I will make separate posts of all the pieces with diary entries.

La droga è uno schifo. Distrugge qualsiasi cosa. A partire da noi stessi, fino ad arrivare ad ogni minima sfaccettatura della nostra vita.
Per colpa della droga ci allontaniamo da ciò che amiamo, dalle nostre aspirazioni, dalla nostra vita. La droga è un vortice di dipendenza, menzogne, sotterfugi. Chi ci ama perde lentamente fiducia in noi. Non riesce a guardarci più allo stesso modo, ha sempre paura del dolore che possiamo causare, dei guai in cui possiamo finire ed in cui siamo già finiti.
È un gioco di resistenza, in cui l'unica forza a contare davvero è quella di volontà. E magari possiamo anche non andare ad impelagarci con cocaina, eroina, acidi, ma vale la pena di perdere lo sguardo caro di chi ci ama per una semplice canna?

Have you read bladekindeyewear's theory on how the Ring of Life/Void might contain the trapped souls of Jane/Roxy? (Check his almost-4/15/2015 update response.) I figure as the royal regent of Homestuck inanimate TFs that "Jane/Roxy fusing into the Ring of Life/Void" might get your artistic gears going. *wonk*

One night, while strolling through the Dream Bubbles, the Rogue of Void and Maid of Life discover the Rings of Orbs Nofold. Finding themselves captivated by the golden rings, the cotton candy goddesses don the bewitching jewelry upon their fingers.

However the consequences of the cursed artifacts soon become apparent as they feel their very beings be pulled into and twisted into their rings. Jane and Roxy panic, they struggle as they try to remove their fingers from the golden vortices. But alas, their bodies were already fused with the accursed rings.

They eventually felt their entire bodies compress, reshape, spiral and solidify into their ring. They drop the the ground, their transformation complete. Jane and Roxy laid on the ground, immobile but full conscious of their surroundings. Their attempts of calling out for help were futile as they quickly realized that they were no longer able to speak. 
Only minutes later did they hear footsteps approach them. Looking down, Porrim notices a pair of rings. A smirk stretches upon her face as she picks up the two golden beauties, unaware of the significance of what, or for that matter who, she has holding in her hands.
“I kno+w exactly what I can use yo+u two+ fo+r~”

 ==> WHAT DOES PORRIM HAVE IN MIND FOR THESE TWO? YOU DECIDE!

Observations show Jupiter’s iconic Great Red Spot is shrinking, most recently at a rate of more than 900 km a year. As it gets smaller, the storm is also changing shape and becoming more circular. Scientists don’t yet have an explanation for the shrinkage or its recent acceleration, but this is unsurprising given the rich complexity of the storm. For example, the source of the Red Spot’s longevity–it may be more than 300 years old–is still an open topic of research. Some of the most recent observations show smaller eddies feeding into the storm; the current hypothesis is that these eddies may be increasing the Red Spot’s dissipation and accelerating its breakup.
