Working On It! The Remodeler as Entrepreneur.

When it gets steamy on the homefront.

Just in case you have been reading these columns of mine, and you might have come to the conclusion that I live in a different world than you do, I thought this time I would prove to you that we live in the very same world, and that it does get steamy on the homefront.

Meaning, life can be a troublesome when you run a business, or even worse, when your business runs you. That’s when I’ve found most often that working on it becomes impossible to do.

Thinking strategically becomes warped by

UNCOMMON MAN

Новый студийный альбом Deep Purple Now What?!, вышедший спустя долгие 8 лет после своего предшественника, похоже, оправдал все ожидания. А возможно, даже превзошёл их — ведь некоторые опрометчиво заявляют, что группа никогда не звучала настолько хорошо. Интересно, что же скажет по этому поводу человек, который всегда был в Deep Purple.

Дамы и господа: мистер Иэн Пейс!

Иэн, прежде всего, хотелось бы поздравить вас с выходом долгожданного альбома. И надеюсь, что вы довольны полученным результатом.

Да, мы весьма и весьма довольны. Фактически, ещё в процессе работы над пластинкой, заведомо можно понять, какой она получится. Ведь некоторые записи даются легко, а некоторые

The physical deep and with my camera…

The highs and lows of adventure photography.

I’ve always had an interest in art and creativity and at school my point and shoot accompanied me on most adventures. When it came to picking a university degree I decided on natural science course thinking this was my best opportunity for a career that would take me outdoors, the p ace where . I am happiest. After studying science for four years I realized something was missing. Unsure of what this was I looked for a place to get lost in introspection and the ocean seemed the perfect destination: The day after

The ES-150 was essentially a jazz box with the deep body of existing archtop acoustics, but at the time it was a revolution

Gibson’s ES series began with the ES-150 of 1936, generally recognised as the world’s first successful electric guitar. The ES-150’s name – like many Gibson models that preceded and followed – simply denotes price: in 1936, $150 bought you the guitar, an amplifier and a cable. Gibson had previously fitted pickups on acoustic guitars in 1935, but the ES-150 was the first specifically-designed electric guitar to make a real impact.

Perhaps surprisingly, it was two retail companies – Montgomery Ward and Spiegel May Stern – who pushed Gibson to design and build the ES-150. Early pickup-loaded L-00 and L-1 models

Next-gen Rockets

Right now, companies around the world are building a new breed of super launcher that will have the capability to take bigger payloads in greater numbers beyond low Earth orbit (LEO) than ever before.

Known as heavy-lift rockets, these behemoths are essential if we are to continue our unmanned exploration of the Solar System as well as taking humans to new destinations. But there’s a reason the last such vehicle, the Saturn V, was retired over 40 years ago; these massive launchers are not only expensive but complicated and a huge engineering challenge, too. Now, however, it’s time to take

New dark matter detector placed deep underground

A tank of water and a fire extinguisher over 2.4 kilometres (1.5 miles) beneath the surface aims to find dark matter.

COUPP-60 is an underground dark matter experiment consisting of apparatus that includes a large jar containing purified water and CF3I, a chemical found in fire extinguishers. The aim of the detector is to search for signs of dark matter particles. When a particle passes through the detector its energy will produce tiny bubbles in the clear liquid.

“It’s an underground observatory,” explained Fermilab’s Hugh Lippincott, who oversaw the installation of the detector. “So it’s looking for the same thing

A new look at the deep Krenken.

Among all the little crankbaits stand out Krenken — active bait with a very own game. They deserve the people’s love and acceptance is for ease of use and ability to catch the predator on the most primitive wiring — uniform. No wonder the US called them a bit rude idiot baits, as they work well and are caught in a dull ravnomerke, ie they do not need to revive especially wise, and lead only to throw a wobbler, monotone rotating reel handle.

Originally it developed so that the most popular for fishing vzabros our spinnings shallow and sverhmelkovodnye

Deep space: Lethal gamma rays

Releasing more energy in a mere ten seconds than the Sun will during its entire 10 billion-year lifetime, gamma-ray bursts reign supreme as the most deadly source of radiation known to man, pipping X-rays to the post.

Taking a trip just outside of the Earth’s atmosphere, you’ll find that gamma rays are everywhere, however, one of the greatest difficulties in detecting gamma-ray bursts is their incredibly short life span, lasting from just a fraction of a second to over 1,000 seconds. While they can’t be seen by our visible light-sensitive eyes, space observatories such as NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope,

BIG SHOT

AMMO opened with a hang in May, treating Hong Kong diners to gourmet food in an edgy, industrial space. Boutique design studio WANG created the space, taking a cue from 1965 sci-fi film noir Alphaville, which explores the links between art, technology and society. AMMO is located in the Asia Society Hong Kong Center, a former explosives magazine compound converted by New York architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien.
