A photoshop drawing by a friend of mine, glitched through Wordpad, exported as PNG and then glitched through CoolEdit. Replacing very small data chunks with chords seems to work pretty well.

Heres the thing, I'm not as worried about my smart devises interfering with my idea of privacy as much as i worry about global warming or my soul, besides am twisted enough to probably love the attention more than the privacy as long as it was anonymous interactive, funny and kind. On the other hand, the thing is, what is all this electro magnetic energy, data, accumulated, molecules electrons neutrinos, carbons clusters, ions (some tech-no weeny can laugh madly here haha ikr idk !) whatever the fuck makes up the signal carrying energies that shoots through these invisible smart routs or pathways and layers; well THAT. ----WHATS that, doing to me and everyone? I think its these technologies are coming so hot of the plate that they are not tested for deadly affects,long term, let alone any affect except just ones people are interested in having or the ones that have the most influence physically and mentally on people, thus, make the most money. No safety studies were published that I know of first before obama singed a law that said every new appliance and electronic household/auto item sold new here in the usa now will be smart capable. (even candy coating the whole green thing to make it seem like for the global best) Maybe for the Corp Best not the biological global best. These technologies are microwave electro magnetic streams of information saturating our earths surface and penetrating through everyone animal and living thing in the billions of little and massive accumulated pathways. While Universities gain funds to create awareness of global warming, which, I definitely believe is crucial, why cant I find anything that supports the possibility all of our beloved phones, tablets, and televisions and now all household smart gadgetry, plus all the commercial big and small data, the world wide -all this core to life as it is now and is using microwave bandwidth-(or renamed electro-magnetic to sound safer than the radiation that all of these really do emit).-----THAT this may possibly have the entire planet on a defrost cycle?--------I wonder this to myself while (thinking of course not, silly me Idk) watching sat tv the discovery channel. As the scientists in the arctic using his cell phone or connected camera sends real time live feed of videos of polar bears drowning in the ocean stranded, as ice melts under their feet. A world so connected we can all be privy to anyone persons view of events if he so shares it, just like the scientist recording the polar crisis, with each our gadgets, at least those of us who are living above slavery, even the homeless and unemployed receive cell phones in usa anyway, would consider perhaps these are the very things accumulating the major cause of Global warming? No matter how complicated the other causes are, wouldnt that be tragically Ironic? Especially if because of a human love of these are instead collectively willing to look with but away from that and only address less obvious, causes of the climate crisis.Just because I've never even seen anything suggesting sat/cell/smart meter/cell& satellite tower based electro magnetic communication even as a possible factor in this fairly recent escalating crisis, of global warming, Im inclined to have 2 fundamental self made and hopefully flawed, ;-) conclusions to chose from #1) All humans, no mater if in Scientific data, Commercial use, Gov use, Public or Private, as groups or individuals All humans love our electronically connected gadgets as much as we love our own loved ones or may be as even as much as we love an arm or a leg and that it would take losing more then even our very lives before we would personally or collectively even consider going back to not using them.This would be 1000 times more difficult to accomplish than solving our current rapidly escalating globe-wide deadly weather effects. Especially if the use of these electronics would be considered to be the far greater cause of the climate crisis. --- OR Conclusion #2: My limited grasp of knowledge of the dangerous radiation emitted from my smart phone my pc my laptop my smart meter those cell towers on the hills by my house, my awareness that I'm just one of many using the same products and I dont know how to do algebra let alone calculate bandwidth or signaling or how to even program or assemble such products so suddenly radiation is very safe just based on my observation of how eventual it is to likely die from and how much more a worthwhile popular an addiction then the deadly ones and it is not an addiction because it is a tool and is far more an interaction then say most leisure entertainment activities, like reading a book or watching tv. (which are now also part of the connected electronic generation anyway) That I really dont know much about any electronics, let alone learning to use my phone, or tv, antique or new radio device except how to push a button, or raise a simple antenna or change a battery or a bulb. I even eat food I've radiated (Fast result orientated) I only know dont stand in front of the door. Only my wildest imagination would allow me to think my logic is reasonable about my first conclusion. Especially considering I know the my second conclusion is based on my knowledge of the lack of having enough of it because I myself would rather think totally incorrect about this as a cause so I can continue to go on using my connected gadgets just like writing this, consciously or unconsciously, any vaguely literate, I dont care to quit and dont do guilt or responsibility much! These apples are the sweet ones what was the other tree and curiosity keeps the soul inspired, why does it get confused for doubt, hence snowballing the current plague if it. Why have I not been inclined to be about unity, if everyones thinking alike, they likely stopped altogether, sold on the sigals of a critical agenda. Ego or ascension curve? Well then solid ground is wonderful too .-------------------------------GOT FEEDBACK?

*****************************************

 

Looking back on some old photos from 40-50 years ago, I was struck by how visible the differences were between the culture of then, versus the culture of now. In some cases, it was evident from the things people wore, or carried, or did, back then which they no longer do today. But sometimes it was the opposite: things that didn't exist back in the 1960s and 1970s have become a pervasive part of today's culture.

 

A good example is the cellphone: 20 years ago, it simply didn't exist. Even ten years ago, it was a relatively uncommon sight, and was seen usually only on major streets of big cities. Today, of course, cell phones are everywhere, and everyone is using them in a variety of cultural contexts.

 

However, I don't think this is a permanent phenomenon; after all, if you think back to the early 1980s, you probably would have seen a lot of people carrying Sony Walkmans, or "boom-box" portable radios -- all of which have disappeared...

 

If Moore's Law (which basically says that computers double in power every 18 months) holds up for another decade, then we'll have computerized gadgets approximately 100 times smaller, faster, cheaper, and better -- which means far better integration of music, camera, messaging, and phone, but also the possibility of the devices being so tiny that they're embedded into our eyeglasses, our earrings, or a tattoo on our forehead.

 

So the point of this album is to provide a frame of reference -- so that we can (hopefully) look back 10-20 years from now, and say, "Wasn't it really weird that we behaved in such bizarre ways while we interacted with those primitive devices?"

Duration: 5 seconds

 

This video is essentially a test upload, using a 3D CGI video which I originally made by following a tutorial using the 3D modeling and animation package Cinema 4D. The design of the spaceship presumably belongs to Maxon.

 

Update: Note that subsequent to the writing of this account, it appears that flickr have adopted a policy of "letterboxing" videos with a non-standard aspect ratio into a standard 16:9 "widescreen" format.

 

How to customise the shape of your flickr video

 

(All about aspect ratios, and pixel aspect ratios)

 

I wanted to preserve a "non standard" aspect ratio (the proportions of the height against the width of the video) when uploading a video in flickr.

 

My previous flickr video upload was automatically slightly "squished" into a default 500 x 400 pixels frame. This account / description of the process I used to avoid this "auto squishing" might be useful to other flickr users who want to avoid the problem. It is specific to Final Cut Pro and Quicktime Pro, but the principles should apply to any video editing software.

 

The original "Stingray" video file was 720 x 576 pixels, in MiniDV PAL format.

 

Note that PAL pixels are not square, they are slightly "fat". NTSC - conversely - has pixels that are slightly "skinny". This is a consequence of having to "hammer" the different TV formats used by US (NTSC) and European (PAL) consumers into the same MiniDV tape format!

 

25 frames a second times 576 (visible) lines times 720 pixels per line in Europe

- exactly matches / equals the same data storage requirements of:

30 frames a second times 480 (visible) lines times 720 pixels per line in the US

 

(Each method requires the MiniDV tape to store exactly 10.368 million pixels per second. Fortunately for the tape, considerable compression results in a much smaller data rate!)

 

Both PAL and NTSC analogue formats actually have more lines per frame than stated, but they are "off the edge" (above and below the screen) - so MiniDV does not bother recording these empty lines.

 

Because they are a bit "fat", on a European (PAL) TV, the 720 x 576 pixel picture - properly displayed - would be stretched sideways to appear equivalent to 768 x 576 square pixels (or a 4 x 3 ratio) - just like a proper old fashioned TV.

 

Computers do not always take into account non-square pixels because it is a lot of effort to do so - in terms of valuable processing time - and all for not much seeming benefit if the pixels are "almost" square anyway. (In fact, compensating for slightly non-square pixels can slightly reduce the overall resolution of vertical edges in the images.)

 

With non-HD "16:9" / "widescreen" the problem of pixel aspect ratio can be much more extreme. This is why news and other hastily produced TV content often has noticeably "too fat" or "too skinny" footage. (Because they mix footage from different formats of video.)

 

Most newer HD digital video formats usually have exactly square pixels, so this PIXEL aspect ratio malarkey - thankfully - will eventually go away.

 

What I did to deal with all this...

 

In Final Cut Pro I created a CUSTOM 500 x 250 pixel sequence with SQUARE pixels and imported the PAL DV "Stingray" video, scaling it to crop off the top and bottom. I chose 500 as the maximum dimension, as this used to be the limit (both vertically and horizontally) for flickr video, but I don't know if this is still the case. [Update: since early 2009 flickr HD supports dimensions up to 800 x 800 pixels - see my experiment here.] I exported the sequence as a Quicktime file using the MPEG 4 codec.

 

Among other things, these previous steps "flushed out" any pixel aspect ratio problems associated with the original source video. (The exported pixels are square, because I made them so, when I defined my Final Cut Pro sequence settings.)

 

In Quicktime I then opened the file and exported it as a .mov file using the H.264 codec. (The main reason I did this step was have a .mov file, which is one of the video file formats that flickr video support.)

 

This is how the file information changed during the process.

 

MiniDV PAL file

frame size 720 x 576 pixels

(individual) pixel aspect ratio 1.066:1 (slightly "fat")

file size 17.3 MB

 

MPEG 4 file exported from Final Cut Pro

frame size 500 x 250 pixels

(individual) pixel aspect ratio 1:1 (exactly square)

file size 2.5 MB

 

H.264 .mov file exported from Quicktime

frame size 500 x 250 pixels

(individual) pixel aspect ratio 1:1 (exactly square)

file size 1.1 MB

 

I ended up with a 2:1 aspect ratio (500 pixels by 250 pixels) .mov video file with square pixels which correctly uploaded, and appears here on this flickr page.

 

Video is a bit complicated. There are eight million ways to skin a cat (in the naked city!)

; this has been one of them.

A sequence of frames from a 16mm camera recovered from a General Electric Mark 2 Re-entry/Recovery vehicle aboard Thor 187/Thor DM-18A launch vehicle, 12 May 1959. The curvature of the Earth, along with the Florida peninsula is clearly visible.

 

From the GE Film Catalog description of the footage. It's a self-promotional write-up, so they really lay it on THICK:

 

"On May 12, 1959, Air Force Thor Missile Number 187 lifted off its launching pad at Cape Canaveral and headed Southeast out over the Atlantic Missile Range, To most observers, it was apparently just another routine test; however, this flight was different. In its blunt General Electric Mark 2 nose cone, Thor 187 carried a very special payload installed in a small data capsule that would be recovered when the flight was over. As usual, the reliable Thor was right on course. Fifteen minutes and 1500 miles after leaving the launching site, it came down so close to the predicted impact point that crew-members on the recovery ship standing by actually witnessed the data capsule plunge into the sea. In record time the sphere was hauled aboard and the vessel headed for shore. There, General Electric scientists began the careful processing of the capsule's contents. They were not long in finding the results they had hoped for—in the subdued light of a photographic dark room, on a still-dripping strip of developed motion picture film, the eyes of man beheld for the first time the image of the earth as it appears from beyond the atmosphere."

 

The amazing footage is at:

Not too bad for 1959.

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission says that the new tolls have reduced the peak time to get to and cross the Bay Bridge from University Avenue in Berkeley by four minutes, and maybe it is true, even though crossing times from other places seem to be no faster. That 8:00 am spike in 2008 was pretty terrible, although many other times of day show no improvement or are worse than they once were. Or it could just be noise. This is an awfully small data set (4961 crossings) I am working with.

Another image from my October 2009 visit to Mt. Pinos. Rather small data set hampered by wind and half the data thrown out. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the result considering. I was surprised to pick up some of the tidal tails in Stephan's Quintet galaxy group. About 4 1/2 hours of LRGB data taken with the DSI RC10C 10" R-C scope and the STL-11K camera.

110 THE BRITISH BEE JOURNAL. [March 10, 1887 held her in my hand before (he fire for nearly an hour. She just moved a leg or two, showed her sting', and became quiescent. Is she dead, or only a case of suspended animation ? I send her to you by this post, to see if you, pcre editor, can tell me the cause of death, or how it was. Are they getting ready for swarming, and thrown out a surplus queen ? Is my hive queenless ? what am I to do? See what my ambition to have a Ligurian stock lias come to. I now have eight blacks and brown stocks, and one stock of half blacks and half Ligurians. If they have no queen, will they rear one now ? What was she doing outside the hive ? Please help me out of my dilemma. I await your verdict with interest. I believe, two weak stocks, that are covering'six or eight frames, better than joining; I don't want to join.—Chas. J. Jelfs, Dodford, Broms- yrove, Worcestershire, \£th February. [Your Queen-bee is as dead as Queen Anne. It is im- possible to say what was the cause of the queen's death. Sometimes bees will supersede a queen, without any apparent reason, and it is probable that yours are raising a queen. As you do not wish to unite, on the first suitable opportunity examine the colony, and, if you find queen-cells in progress, use your discretion as to allowing it to stand. Were the case our own we should certainly unite it to our weakest colony, first cutting out the queen-cells. If there are no queen-cells, uniting is the only alternative, since it is too early to obtain queens, and, if this were possible, the risk of introduction now would be great. For your consolation, however, we may state that, in March last, a strong Italian colony, in our own apiary, taking a fancy to change its queen, destroyed her, and raised another in her place, which mated successfully about the middle of April, and is now a most prolific breeder, and a beautiful queen in size, shape, and colour. It must be noted, however, that drones were plentiful in our apiary at the time this queen matched.—Ed.] REVERSING FRAMES. [855.] 1 beg to take the opportunity of -writing to you, in reference to the article which appeared in the B. B.J. of December 1, 1886, on ' Reversing Frames and Hives,' in which you were of opinion that if reversible frames were to come into general use, a simple appliance must be used that will utilise our present frames and in no way interfere with their size, with which I quite agree. I now submit to you the following simple plan, whereby any one might try reversible frames for a few pence. I first cut off the ears of the top bar, then glue O o

in little angle pieces in the angles at the bottom of the frame, so as to strengthen the bottom part of the frame, which also forms a hold for screws which are screwed in about half an inch from the sides of the frame. I get tint a new top bar, which may be either broad-shouldered or metal-ended, and in this bore two holes of the size of the head of the screws, and from these holes are two wedge-like slots, which, when the bar is pushed, tighten both the bars. This same top bar would do for any frame, and section-cases, if worked in the rear of the hive, might by the same be inverted and kept in position, —R. G., West End, Bodmin. 'CROAKING QUEENS' (203.) [850.] ' Amateur Expert,' in ' Jottings' for the 3rd ult., ' hopes that all who own " croaking" bees are satisfied with Mr. Grimshaw's excellent paper on the " Vocal Organs of the Bee," and that they will endeavour to notice the different " croaks" in future, and, moreover, that none of them will ever " croak " themselves.' I read Mr. Grimshaw's paper with considerable in- terest, and I beg to assure your facile and racy corre- spondent that—as in the past, so in the future—the different ' croaks ' will receive their due share of notice from me at least. ' A. E.' hopes that all who own, &c. This is pressing into the service the whole army of bee- keepers—a mighty host! An attentive examination of the paper in question discovers nothing that in any degree militates against— much that favours—the possibility of the existence of such a sound; and this whether we investigate and analyse the minute anatomical structure and arrangement of the spiracles and their relations to the wing's, or simply follow Mr. Grimshaw in his description of some of the sounds. ' We all know,' sa3Ts he, ' the lazy contented boom of the drone as contrasted with the whizz and whirr of the disturbed honey-gatherer. We recognise the con- tented hum of the quiet prosperous hive in opposition to the sharp " poop ! poop !" of the lost queenless hive.' Now this sharp' poop! 'poop!' is clearly a species of 'croak.' It is just possible, however, that this 'poop! poop!' sound or croak is never uttered by a queenless stock. ' Stahala,' quoted in the Journal of the 10th ult., states that the sound " H-u-u-u-u-u-u!" is pro- duced by queenless stocks both in summer and winter,' a very different sound from ' poop ! poop !' ' Stahala ' furthermore adds, 'A loud " wuh-wuh-wuh!" is only heard when breeding is going on, but never when the hive is queenless or Jias an unfertilised queen.' This ' wuh-wuh-wuh !' or rather, to give it its proper pro- nunciation, this ' vuh-vuh-vuh !' is the abrupt croak, rattle, or, drum-roll that I have on former occasions de- scribed as peculiar to the queen, and, as I have never heard such sound emitted by a virgin queen, possibly peculiar to one fertilised. It does not, however, neces- sarily follow that an unfertilised queen is, anatomically, incapable of uttering such sound, but only that her con- dition and surroundings, in the virgin state and in the fertilised, differ, and that the necessity for the emission of this sound is, therefore, in the former state absent. This, Sir, is an apparently trivial subject upon which to write, but occasionally gieat truths and important facts are evolved and receive their elucidation from very small data, and I consider it the duty of each of us, no matter how humble-so-ever his intellectual status, to do what he can for the general good.

Bore five small holes in the tin lid near the centre, fill the tumbler with the syrup, put on the lid and turn down on the stage, which is placed over the feed-hole. The stage is a square piece of wood J of an inch thick, about i\ inches square, with a round hole in it 1J inches across, and covered with perforated zinc, cut with scissors and nailed on. No shovel is required, not a drop is spilt, and the tumbler can be turned up any time, and be refilled before it is quite empty.—Beeswing.

One final image started at CNSP 2009 in Nevada and finished at home. A very small data set of rather poor data to work with. In honesty, shouldn't have bothered and just tossed the data due to very poor star shapes from bad guiding and lots of wind. A (HaR)GB combine of about 1 1/2 hours total.

After a stressful battle to find out what was wrong with my colour calibration, I think I have it worked out (After two years of having the problem, and not knowing it). The main fault resulting in over the top saturation that I couldn't see - very embarrassing. I'm praying it now looks okay?

 

This is a smallish galaxy at only 7.8 arcminutes, and close to 10th mag. This is a small data set of 2.5 hours, but enough data to have some fun.

 

This is my first LRGB image for about 18 months, following a long testing period of working with my equipment at home with new software. I'm now looking forward to many more new LRGB data sets flowing in.

Comment: Reasonable seeing conditions, but a very small data set for this fainter object.

Author: Steven Mohr

Hi Everyone,

 

My system is slowly collecting data, with a small data set just becoming available for this shady character [total: 2.5 hours].

 

This is HMSTG84, or CG4 [CG stands for cometary globule], or more commonly known as "The Hand of God" or "God's Hand". Located in the constellation of Puppis, it's a faint object hiding in the shadows. Being about 1,300 light-years from Earth, the galaxy at its grip is ESO 257-19 which lays way in the distance.

 

Thank you for having a look.

"On May 12, 1959, Air Force Thor Missile Number 187 lifted off its launching pad at Cape Canaveral and headed Southeast out over the Atlantic Missile Range, To most observers, it was apparently just another routine test; however, this flight was different. In its blunt General Electric Mark 2 nose cone, Thor 187 carried a very special payload installed in a small data capsule that would be recovered when the flight was over. As usual, the reliable Thor was right on course. Fifteen minutes and 1500 miles after leaving the launching site, it came down so close to the predicted impact point that crew-members on the recovery ship standing by actually witnessed the data capsule plunge into the sea. In record time the sphere was hauled aboard and the vessel headed for shore. There, General Electric scientists began the careful processing of the capsule's contents. They were not long in finding the results they had hoped for—in the subdued light of a photographic dark room, on a still-dripping strip of developed motion picture film, the eyes of man beheld for the first time the image of the earth as it appears from beyond the atmosphere."

Another non-Cape May shot and small data point in my life and times.

 

I received fun response from last week's Spring into shape photo, showing the after effects of a self induced 3 month fitness regime from a few years back. Thanks, really!!!

 

I appreciate the visits and encouraging words (and even strangely, enjoyed the reading some of those creative invitations. :o)

 

Many asked what kind of shape I was in at the start. That's shown here in the upper left before shot. The larger after shot here was taken right after I had completed my routine, before I decided to lean out a bit (shown in the other photo).

 

What I find interesting here, is that start to finish I gained only two pounds total. But net net I lost over 20 pounds of fat, and replaced it with close to 20 pounds of muscle through a series of common sense, simple techniques that we all know how to do. Truly! :o)

For some reason I cannot fathom, I want to make a chart of our cats ages over time. So far, this is what I've come up with. Each of our seven cats (five still living) is charted as a line of increasing circles. The circles represent the number of months of age they are at a given date. The data starts with when we adopted them, not when they were born, which is why Nobuo appears to have been born at the age of 5 or so.

 

I think this type of chart is good for small data sets but when you have seven series, they start to overlap and make it hard to see. I'll keep on trying different things to see what I come up with.

The easiest Ping irons to hit are the  Ping Rapture V2 Irons, these are known as super game  improvement irons. Although, the G15s are very easy to hit, and even the G20 Irons are easy to hit and also very workable... Chris Stroud once said that the Ping K15 irons " PING engineers made the iron clubface larger and added 27 grams to the perimeter for a higher MOI. The iron’s extra-wide sole features a low and deep center of gravity to promote high trajectories and low spin. High launch angles allowed iron lofts to be strengthened without compromising control. A large internal weight pad in the hybrids produces a high MOI for added forgiveness." Dscount  Ping K15 irons have been designed to give golfers the ultimate in performance and flexibility. Some testers feel its trajectory is higher than optimal; a few testers find that overall distance isn't quite as long as they'd like. The larger K15 iron combines a lightweight titanium face with a stainless-steel body to increase both forgiveness and launch conditions. Two hybrid options (4 and 5) replace the harder-to-hit long irons, and rely on a patent-pending design that creates lower-spinning, higher-launching shots that fly straighter and longer. PING’s Top Irons Set in more than 40 years, to score 40 stableford points using clubs fresh out of the box with not even a warm-up session on the range calls for a little skill, a modicom of luck and a handicap that barely reflects your ability.  Related Searches:  Ping G15 Irons Ping was also the first to offer factory fitting, via a variety of clubheads in different lies and offsets. Beginning about 1980 Ping began offering their fitting program based on a checklist of the player's physical characteristics, common problems and distances. The Ping G15 Irons are the successors to the G20 range which sat a little uncomfortably and PING range. If the iron has an "A" on the sole, it's an "Approach" wedge, otherwise known as the "Gap" wedge. It fills the gap between pitching wedge and sand wedge.  Ping G15 Iron is a dream comes true for any golfer.  If you are somewhat inconsistent, the forgiveness will help. If you fight the hook, these will be great. If you need legal grooves, these are ready to go. Every single element that you will find in the G15 Irons is made to perfection and to give the buyer the ultimate in the ability to be able to fare excellently well in the game.  Weight savings from a thinner face is re-positioned to the toe for added forgiveness on mis-hits and its wider sole produces a higher launch angle. Stronger lofts combine with a center of gravity located low and farther from the face to produce longer shots without sacrificing the higher trajectory required in a maximum forgiveness iron. Related Searches: Ping G20 Irons Ping - in computing terms - is the action of a computer sending a small data 'packet' down the network cable to the host computer, and calculating the time taken (in milliseconds) for the host, and Ping is a small tool that you can find in a command prompt of any windows machine. It is invaluable when it comes to networks and networking. While good accuracy is all but a given with Ping G20 Irons, we were plenty excited to put the entire set through our updated review process and see how successful our 6 testers would be hitting long, middle, and short irons to a target. That information and data can all be found below, but first, there’s some things PING might want you to know. The Fast Face Insert Design provides you with a much larger sweet spot to generate more ball speed, and the SureFit Tour Technology allows you to adjust the club head position to match your swing style, by tweaking the loft and lie angles to optimize both launch trajectory and ball flight for maximum distance and control.  Discount Ping G20 Irons Features: 1.Thinner face 2.Stainless Steel Irons 3.Wider sole provides a higher launch angle 4.Strong lofts and a low center of gravity produce long shots with a high trajectory and maximum  forgiveness Complete Ping G15 Irons Color Dots: Black Dot | Blue Dot | Brown Dot | Yellow Dot | Green Dot | Red Dot | Orange Dot | Purple Irons | Silver Dot | White Dot | etc. More information on the shafts available, and the specifications for the Rapture V2 Irons can be found at  Discount golf clubs for sale for 2012 here: www.feelgolfclubs.com/shop-by-brand-ping-c-4_5_6_14.html Here Coupon Code For Discount golf clubs: Click Here 1.  Save 5% Off  Purchases of $100-$399  PLUS FREE SHIPPING Coupon Code:df9151a9fc 02/05/2012-03/31/2012 2.  Save 8% Off  Purchases of $400-$999  PLUS FREE SHIPPING Coupon Code:feb2f46d90 3.

Mercom's Q1 2018 report shows only $2 billion raised during the quarter, a 2/3 fall from the previous quarter and a decline on a year-over-year basis.

 

After six months of suppressed global solar power investment in mid-2017, we saw clouds begin to part towards the end of the year on mitigated recommendations from the International Trade Commission in the Section 201 case. In its latest report Mercom Capital is suggesting these clouds have partially returned with ‘trade war’ talk between President Trump and China as the first quarter rolled out.

 

However, even in the investment fog, the juggernaut of growing capacity continued its expansion as 7.7 GW of solar assets changed hands. New project funding also stayed stable quarter over quarter at $1.9 billion, even in the face of falling prices.

 

Marcom Capital has released its Q1 2018 Funding and M&A Report., which finds that $2 billion of corporate funding entered the sector, down 65% from the fourth quarter of 2017, and from $3.2 billion in the first quarter of 2017.

 

Multiple sectors saw overall investment fall:

 

VC funding, including venture capital, private equity and corporate venture capital – $161 million invested in 22 deals, down from $639 million in Q4 and $588 million in Q1.

 

Public market financing – $103 million for four deals, down from $657 million in Q4 and $461 million in Q1.

 

Debt financing – $1.8 billion in 17 deals, down from significantly from $4.4 billion in Q4 and $2.2 billion in Q1.

 

And in a small, but growing market – we’re seeing the U.S. residential solar power loan market continue its love affair with the American consumer. In a small data set, we saw only a single residential solar funding for the quarter of $400 million by Sunlight Financial. This compares to $213 million in Q4, and $630 million in Q1’17.

 

This is accelerating, and the first five days of the second quarter saw at least $325 million ($225M/$100M) in residential funding.

 

As the global capacity of solar power projects keeps growing we’re seeing continued strength in large project financing, and as global solar assets continue to cumulate we saw 7.7 GW of solar power plants change hands during the first quarter. The estimated 99 GW of solar installed in 2017, pushes the global capacity to over 400 GW, and these projects are producing well more than 560 terawatt-hours of electricity annually – roughly worth $28 billion a year (at 5¢/ per kilowatt-hour). With the global market expected to grow to potentially 113 GW (or up to 126 GW by some estimates) – we expect to see the global installed capacity expand by at least 25% this year alone.

 

This will drive asset management markets upward, significantly and continually as corporate and pension fund groups look to lock in long term fixed energy rates and cash flow.

 

Large scale project funding in Q1 totaled $2.7 billion in 58 deals, versus $3.7 billion in 49 deals in Q4 and $2.6 billion in 33 deals in Q1’17.

 

80 large scale project acquisitions, vs 67 in Q4 and 49 Q1’17. The announced values for 16 of the projects was $1.9 billion, with the Q4 announced values at $3.7 billion, and $1.9 billion in Q1.

 

20 projects totaling 1.2 GW were purchased by investment firms, 30 projects at 1.3 GW by utilities and independent power products, and 3.4 GW were acquired by project developers in 14 projects.

 

2017 saw growth over 2016 in solar power funding globally, and the 4th quarter of 2017 was especially strong as a lot of global pressure let loose. However, we are seeing complexity again – India, soon to be the second largest global market is considering import tariffs against Chinese supported manufacturers, while the U.S. is ramping up language against China as well.

 

Growth will come – it is inevitable, to a degree. The UN says $161 billion was invested in solar in 2017 – more than oil, gas and nuclear combined, while Green Climate Bonds blew past projections to hit $155 billion globally. We saw record 96 GW of new solar manufacturing capacity announced – from wafers, to cells and module assembly. This capacity will need funding, and with margins being tight – corporations will probably reach out to the markets for capital.

 

Much of this technology investment happening in the largest solar module manufacturers globally, which raises the question if the solar industry has matured to a point that limits the ability of venture capital groups to get in at the edges.

 

As the solar industry continues to expand, it is becoming a much more nuanced, broad and complex industry to forecast and describe, much like a healthy ecosystem.

The HRSC-camera recorded images of Phobos on 9 January 2011 at a distance of 100 km with a resolution of 8.1 m/pixel. Due to the stereo viewing geometry during the flyby a small part of the moon’s edge is only visible for the right eye resulting in odd 3D-perception in this area. This part has been slightly adjusted for better viewing. Also, for the left eye at the left edge of the image four small data gaps have been interpolated.

Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep 1970-1971 Fig. 3.2. A. Precipitation and mean monthly discharge of the Westport River, normalized by its drainage area. B. Comparison of normalized discharge from 2 years of data from the Westport and Weweantic Rivers. From Signell (1987) inputs and discharges results primarily from strong seasonal shifts in recharge rates that are due to losses via evapotranspiration and to a lesser extent the stor- age of ice and snow during winter until spring melt. Annual return of rainwater within the watershed to the atmosphere is about 65% (45% recharge; LeBlanc et al. 1986). The integrated result of the cycles of precipitation, temperature, and evapo- transpiration is a distinct seasonal variation in water table elevation with resulting variations in discharge. Although river discharge data are limited, long- term measurements were conducted on the major river system, the Westport River (Fig. 3.2B), with smaller data sets available for the Weweantic River (cf. Signell 1987) and Red Brook (Moog 1987). The seasonality of river discharge is clear in the Westport and Weweantic rivers (Tig. 3.2B). Similar temporal variations caused by seasonal changes in hydraulic gradient were found in groundwater discharge into Buttermilk Bay (Weiskel 1991). The similar discharge rates per unit of water- shed for the Westport and Weweantic rivers over the same period (Fig. 3.2B) support the use of a generalized ratio of discharge/subwatershed area for each of the major rivers discharging to Buzzards Bay (Signell 1987). The ratio from the long-term Westport data is 0.0198 (m7s)/km:, similar to a study by Bue (1970) for a nearby Cape Cod River of 0.0191 (mVs)/km2. The bay-wide total freshwa- ter inflow estimated from this approach is 22 mVs with the Westport and Weweantic rivers accounting for about one-third of the total flow (Table 3.1). While this technique does not separate the contribution of runoff versus groundwater inflow to total discharge, baseflow within this watershed is probably signifi- cant based on the geology and Red Brook, where approximately 69% of the total flow is baseflow (Moog 1987). Because of the relatively small wa- tershed area versus bay area, the freshwater inflow (22 m3/s) is nearly equivalent to the direct rain input to the bay surface (18 mVs), although evaporation of bay water must also be considered. Nonethe- less, the importance of considering direct precipi- tation is clear. Although direct precipitation leads to dilution of bay salinities, it is less important than streamflow in producing salinity gradients within the bay waters. The apparent temporal variation in freshwater discharge through surface and groundwater path- ways and the nearly uniform monthly precipitation input directly to bay waters are consistent with the salinities observed in the open bay surface waters near the mouth. Salinity measurements collected over 14 years in Woods Hole, which receives a mean mass flux of water from Buzzards Bay and has almost no nearby freshwater discharges, indi- cate a small annual range of less than 1 ppt. with a minimum in April, maximum freshwater discharge in February-April (Fig. 3.2), and a maximum of 31.9 ppt in October at the end of the low discharge period (cf. Signell 1987).

A few years ago I decided to try and create, write, and illustrate a short story to share with others. Rather than use a publisher which would be expensive I begin by self-publishing the story in the form of greeting cards. I created a small data base of 50 folks that knew, used a local printer to produce the cards in batches, and begin mailing them out. I had just finished mailing out the 3rd edition in the illustrated story when a series of health issues in my family derailed me. This is a scan of the cover and interior of the 1st edition of the unfinished story. The cover is from a watercolor and the inside stampings were from rubber stamps that I managed to carve. Hopefully I can find the creative juices to resume it.
