TATTOO TREASURES with DANA BRUNSON

FUN IN PHILLY

I recently wrote about Les Skuse, Jimmie Skuse , the Bristol Tattoo Club, and the upcoming Philadelphia Convention. This is a follow up of the whole experience. As a collector, talking and sharing with other collectors is always great fun and a learning experience. The history is as important as the collectable item itself.

This year was truly historical at Troy Timpel’s Philly Convention due to the fact that the Bristol Tattoo Club (est. 1953) was making its first appearance in the United States since founder, Les Skuse, visited in 1956. Just the history of the members

Appeal to bring back Balmoral coastal cruising

A £350,000 appeal has been launched to return the excursion ship Balmoral to service in 2014, the greater part of the money being needed for a major survey and refit during the coming winter. This year Balmoral is out of service in Bristol but volunteers continue to work on board amid fears that if the survey does not take place it will prove difficult, if not almost impossible, to return the 1949-built vessel to future operations.

Balmoral was built by John I. Thornycroft’s yard in Southampton for Red Funnel ferry and excursion work, and was later used on the Bristol

High seismic activity, tearing Africa in two parts

Cracks began to appear a few years ago. But in recent months, seismic activity in the north-eastern Africa has intensified, reflected in a slow and gradual break of the continent. Researchers say that lava in this area as a result of magma streamed, usually seen on the sea floor, and that eventually

Fish with silvery scales violated the laws of physics

October 26, 2012 18:30

According to a new study conducted by researchers from the University of Bristol, silvery scales of some fish species — in particular, herring, sardines and sprats — arranged in such a way as to reflect the incident light, not polarizing it, depending on the angle of incidence. Fishermen and photographers eliminate this effect by polarizing sunglasses or polarizing filters. Fish cover this feature endowed by nature. It helps them hide from predators, the official portal of the University of Bristol.

Previously it was thought that the fish scales, which contains a "stacked" layers of guanine
