  The release of the show season is good news for the squadron’s Airmen, who normally spend up to 220 days a year traveling. Aside from performing impressive aerial demonstrations, Thunderbird Airmen visit with local schools and hospitals, hold enlistment ceremonies and conduct media engagements to speak with people about the Air Force.

” We are extremely excited to represent the Air Force during the upcoming season” said Lt. Col. Greg Moseley, U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron commander and lead pilot. “Our newest team members have been training rigorously to ensure we execute our mission safely while showing the public what their Airmen can do.”

  Moseley is expected to depart the squadron after a change of command ceremony scheduled to occur Jan. 7, 2015. Lt. Col. Christopher Hammond, an experienced fighter pilot with more than 2,000 flight hours, will assume command of the squadron for the 2015 and 2016 demonstration seasons.

” It’s an honor to share the story of U.S. Airmen serving at locations around the globe,” said Hammond. “We hope these stories inspire others to learn more about aviation and opportunities to serve.”

  The Thunderbirds were formed in 1953, and since have been charged with demonstrating the professionalism of Airmen and the capabilities of modern airpower. The 2015 season marks the 33rd year the squadron has performed in the F-16 Fighting Falcon.

Assigned to Air Combat Command, the squadron is composed of nearly 130 Airmen serving in more than two dozen Air Force job specialties.

  The primary product of that teamwork is a Thunderbirds aerial demonstration, which includes approximately 40 maneuvers, featuring formation flying and solo routines. The entire show, including the beginning ground ceremony, lasts about one hour. A typical air show travel season extends from March to November.

Navdy: Feels Like Driving In The Future

 

 

 

Published on Aug 5, 2014

” Pre-order Navdy here at: http://navdy.com

  Navdy announced on 8/5 a breakthrough Head­Up Display (HUD) aftermarket car console that allows drivers to access their smartphone’s apps while keeping their eyes on the road. Navdy combines a high quality projection display with voice and gesture controls to create a safer, highly intuitive driving experience. Combining advanced display technology with touch­less controls means drivers no longer need to fumble around with their phone to navigate, communicate or control their music.

Navdy is the world’s first in­ car platform that offers:

1. Breakthrough display technology: Projects a bright transparent image directly within your field of vision that appears to float six feet in front of your windshield, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road while simultaneously seeing navigation instructions or incoming phone calls. The device comes with advanced dimming and stabilization controls, to optimize usability in any driving conditions.

2. Car­tailored Interface: When your smartphone apps appear on Navdy they are purposely simplified to show you only what you need, when you need it, and minimize distractions. Your navigation will not disappear when a call comes in; Navdy will display both notifications and navigation at the same time in a split screen. Visual elements such as image complexity, placement, or font size, are consistent across apps to make the user experience pleasant and predictable.

3. Voice and gesture controls: You’ll never need to look away from the road to use Navdy. Your app’s simplified Navdy menus can be navigated with intuitive hand gestures. Voice recognition captures more complex commands and text message responses. Navdy’s noise cancellation and wide angle gesture sensors are specifically designed to create an optical driving experience.

4. Works in any car: The device mounts on a flexible footer that fits on practically any car dashboard, and is powered by plugging in to the onboard computer (OBD II port), available in all cars produced since 1996. This makes the only required cord less intrusive, while providing car status information to the Navdy processor.

5. With all the Apps you need: Navdy works with popular navigation apps like Google Maps to display turn­by­turn directions; it controls your music apps like Spotify, Pandora, or Google Music; it reads or displays notifications from text messages or social media apps, fully controlled by its Parental Control settings; and it displays car alerts such as true­ speed, miles ­to ­empty, or battery­ voltage from its access to the car’s computer.

6. Portable and compatible: Navdy works with iPhone (iOS 7+) and Android (4.3+) smartphones, and can move easily to another car or another smartphone. Once a Navdy has been paired over bluetooth for the first time, it can share data with your phone over wifi. Navdy does not require it’s own data subscription service. Initial device dashboard placement takes 60­90 seconds. Slightly longer if you read instructions.

Availability & Pricing:

  Navdy is available for pre­order for 30 days at the introductory price of $299, at 40% discount from its projected retail price of $499. Early adopters can get a 10% refund of $30 for each friend they refer to buy the product ­with 10 referrals, your Navdy is free! Navdy is running a 30­ day pre­order campaign on navdy.com to gauge consumer demand and collect feedback from early adopters. Backers will have early access to the Navdy device so that they can provide feedback and help guide the app development process as the company ramps up to a wider release. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You Can Now Make GIFs Directly From YouTube

 

 

 

 

” If you love making GIFs (and really, who doesn’t?) today is a happy day for you. YouTube has finally heeded the call of millions of users and quietly added a GIF-creator tool to some of its videos (for example, anything uploaded by the PBS Idea Channel). The share button (which previously only had share, embed, and email as options) now includes an extra feature: GIF. 

  It’s a pretty bare-bones affair: tap share, set your start and end points, add any captions if you’d like, and click “create” — YouTube will host the GIF itself. The clip can only be a maximum of 5 seconds long, which makes it somewhat of a crude tool for GIF-makers, but it will help keep file size small. The ease with which one churn out GIFs and add meme-like bottom and top text will certainly be enough for the casual user and perhaps spur on a Mememageddon the likes of which we haven’t seen since 2011. The future is now. “

Brilliant New Device Lets Protestors Block Surveillance And Stingrays

 

tun angles 2

 

 

 

” Reports about agents using a Stingray on protesters to unconstitutionally monitor their phones are circulating widely, and now protesters have a way to fight back.

  Earlier this week an anonymous leaked recording exposed the agents monitoring the protesters’ movements by tracking their phones. A Stingray mimics a cellular tower, letting agents pry into citizens’ cell phones and gather their data/location without a warrant.

  Stingrays were supposed to be used for “terrorists,” but now they’re being used against us locally — which is unconstitutional.

  And that’s where a new product called Tunnel enters the scene .

  We’ve known that the NSA spies on us ever since Edward Snowden blew the whistle on them.

  But have you ever wondered if it’s possible for somebody to spy back on them?

  The NSA has a special way of protecting itself against such a possibility.  And you’ve probably never heard of it.

  To hide its own privacy, the NSA installs copper  – yes, you read that correctly: copper – around the equipment in its buildings.

  It turns out that copper has a unique conductive property that allows it to block surveillance, letting those who use it hide their activities from would-be spies.

  The main NSA headquarters is described as ”a building covered with one-way dark glass, which is lined with copper shielding in order to prevent espionage by trapping in signals and sounds.”

  The question becomes: if they can protect their own privacy with copper, why can’t we use this same technique to protect our privacy from them?

  Well now we finally can.

  Tunnel is a portable Faraday enclosure that uses a 100% authentic copper shielding system to surround your phone.  When your phone is inside, it forms a topologically near-complete surface to prevent non-ionizing radiation from penetrating its boundaries, letting you avoid surveillance.

  Thankfully, it’s not going to cost thousands of dollars, which has come as great news for protesters and other privacy advocates. “

7 Survival Life Hacks That Could Save Your Life

 

 

 

 

 

 

Published on Aug 31, 2013

” Here are some AMAZING quick and simple life hacks in this survival edition. Enjoy!
Check out AUDIBLE! http://audible.com/household

1. Need some light in a pinch and a candle alone won’t cut it? Grab a soda can and cut open the sides, fold them out and place the candle in. This will reflect your light and give you some decent protection from the elements.

2. If you ever find yourself without a clean water source grab a piece of cloth and 2 containers. Put the dirty water in one container and run the cloth from it to the empty glass. After a short while you will have filtered, muck free water. Remember to boil..

3. Need to get a cooking fire going with minimal effort? Grab an empty egg carton and place charcoal into the slots. Seal it up, light a corner and enjoy.

4. If the mosquitoes are getting bad you can repel them easily using common household herbs. Since you already have that little cooking fire going, sprinkle some basil or drop some rosemary on the coals. The bugs can’t stand it and will stay far away.

5. How about a solar microwave? Grab a small food box and cut out a fold. Wrap the top in aluminum foil and line the inner box with it as well. Place your food inside and give it some time. You now have a solar charged grilled cheese sandwich.

6. Need to find the right direction home? Get a small sliver of metal such as a needle and rub it against your clothing several times. Place the needle on a leaf and float it in some water. The needle will point you North.

7. And finally, the emergency oil lamp. Grab some old cloth and bundle it up. Take a soda can and fill it about half way with olive oil. Place the cloth into the can and light. You have yourself a makeshift oil lamp that will last hours. “

” Wanna see a world-record stunt? Something crazy and mind-blowing and death-defying? How does a tractor-trailer breaking the Guinness World Record for jump length tickle you? Oh, and for good measure, a Lotus Formula 1 car. Yeah, that’ll do.

  So here’s the setup: Mike Ryan, the guy who can race a big rig up Pikes Peak or drift it around a racetrack as if he was driving a normal-size car, designed the stunt and is the wheelman in the truck. Martin Ivanov pilots the F1 car. Both guys have extensive experience as stunt drivers in various Bond, Bourne, and Fast and Furious movies. In other words: these are very experienced professionals, so definitely don’t try this at home. “

Bunny Mellon’s Blue Diamond Sells For More Than $32.6 Million, Sets Two World Auction Records

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A 9.75-carat fancy vivid blue diamond from the collection of Mrs. Paul Mellon sold for more than $32.6 million, shattering its high estimate of $15 million at Sotheby’s New York Thursday. The price set a world auction record for any blue diamond; and at more than $3.3 million per carat, it set a world auction record for price-per-carat for any diamond.

  The pear-shaped diamond was sought after by seven bidders who competed for 20 minutes for the gem, Sotheby’s said. It ultimately sold to a Hong Kong private collector who named it “The Zoe Diamond.”

“ From the moment I saw this diamond, I knew that it would be one of the most important stones that I will ever have the privilege of presenting at auction,” said Gary Schuler, head of Sotheby’s Jewelry Department in New York. “Mrs Mellon’s diamond absolutely deserves the place in the record books that it achieved tonight.” “

2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Debuts With Flat-Crank V-8 And MagneRide Shocks!

 

 

 

 

 

” The GT350 is back, baby. The last factory Ford Mustang to wear the vaunted badge disappeared nearly a half-century ago; based on the Mustang GT, it was a street-legal track weapon produced in partnership with Carroll Shelby. Ol’ Shel may now be gone, but the ties between his name and Ford’s pony car are as strong as ever. And the new GT350, which picks up where the original GT350 and the 2013 Boss 302 left off, may be the best-ever example of the breed.”

 

 

 

 

” The outgoing GT500, the most recent Mustang with a Shelby badge, was all about violent, face-flattening velocity, teaming 662 bombastic, supercharged horses with a solid rear axle. Ford’s newest Shelby takes an entirely different approach. For starters, it’s based on the latest “S550” Mustang chassis, which packs a fully independent rear suspension. The GT350 builds on that with Ford’s first suspension with magnetorheological dampers, unique bodywork that’s shaped for aerodynamics first and everything else second, and a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-8 with a flat-plane crankshaft. It’s a thoroughly modern pony built for racetracks with apexes instead of those with burnout boxes. (Ford isn’t abandoning that niche, however, as a new GT500 is in the works.) “

39-Foot Sandcastle In Brazil May Be World Record

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A California sand artist’s 39-foot-tall sandcastle on a Brazilian beach is being considered for a world record by Guinness officials.

  Guinness World Records adjudicators traveled to the Niteroi, Brazil, beach to examine the detailed castle built by Rusty Croft, a sand artist and co-owner of California-based Sand Guys, which has created sculptures for companies including Google and Facebook.

  The castle was built using 20 truckloads of sand and was sponsored by Caterpillar Inc. Archie Lionce of Caterpillar said a decision from Guinness is expected within days.

  The current Guinness World Record holder for largest sandcastle is Ed Jarrett, who constructed a 37-foot, 10-inch castle in Farmington, Conn., in 2011. “

DJI’s New Inspire 1 Quadcopter Lifts Its Arms To Shoot Stunning 4K Video

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Cinematographers and geeks alike already use DJI drones to shoot some pretty epic aerial photography. Those airborne images and video are about to get a lot better with the company’s newest quadcopter, the Inspire 1, which has a built-in 4k camera. The sleek, streamlined black-and-white drone transforms in mid-air into a V design by lifting its carbon-fiber arms above the camera assembly, allowing the user to shoot unobstructed video in any direction.

  The on-board camera can capture 4K video at 24, 25, and 30 fps, and 1080p video at 24, 25, 30, 50, and 60 fps. The Inspire 1 can snap 12-megapixel stills with its 94-degree wide-angle lens — the camera itself rotates a full 360 degrees and can tilt down 125 degrees. It’s also detachable, meaning you can upgrade the camera when a new version comes along.

” We see this as the perfect combination of the Phantom and Spreading Wings series, being able to take off at the touch of a button while simultaneously giving users fine control of the images they capture,” says Frank Wang, DJI CEO and co-founder. 

  DJI says the drone can fly stable and steady even in strong winds or navigate the indoors without GPS. Inspire 1 uses an optical flow camera that maintains a stereoscopic image of the ground, which helps to prevent it from drifting while you’re trying to record video. “

The RC Airbus A400M Is The King Of Fully Functional Scaled Military Aircraft

 

 

 

 

” This fall, at the model air show in Grenchen, Switzerland, the first-ever remote-controlled model of the Airbus A400M debuted in an impressive 3-minute test flight. The detailing and control shown on this model military plane are super impressive. Aviation fans and military geeks, you have got to check this one out!

  The action opens as a couple of pit crew members wheel the model Airbus out on the airstrip for its 6th ever flight. The plane looks just as big as the two guys, which might make you wonder how effective it is really going to be in the air. What does it take for a plane that large to be piloted effectively by a remote control?”

Atlas Robot Tries To Do The Karate Kid “Crane” Stance

 

 

 

 

 

” If robots of the future start trying to become our new overlords, we could probably trace it back to this day. Well, sort of. Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IMHC) is teaching its Atlas robot a few kickass moves. Or at least is trying to. The latest stunt this humanoid contraption is trying to pull off is that iconic stance from 1984’s Karate Kid, popularly known as “The Crane”. But while it seems to have its arm movements down to a T, it still needs a lot of work on its legs.

  OK, the Atlas won’t be kicking enemies, humans or robots, any time soon. Flapping your arms up and down is relatively easy. Jumping from a single foot to the other is easier said than done, especially for a robot that weighs 150 kg, almost thrice as much as Daniel-san back in the days. But smooth karate moves isn’t actually the point of this exercise, but more about the extremely difficult task of keeping a robot of that weight and mass balanced on one foot a top a few concrete blocks, with its arms moving around. And yes, at least one of its legs does try to make a kick. “

The First Photograph Of A Human Being

 

 

 

 

 

 

” This picture, the earliest known photograph to include a recognizable human form, was taken in Paris, France, in 1838 by Louis Daguerre. The human in question is standing in the bottom-left of the photograph, on the pavement by the curve in the road.  He is having his boots shined.  

  The exposure time for the image was around seven minutes, and although the street would have been busy with traffic and pedestrians, it appears deserted. Everything moving was too fast to register on the plate.

  The exception is the man at the lower-left who sat still long enough to appear in the photograph. The person cleaning his boots is also visible, although not as distinctly.

  It has been speculated that instead of a shoeshine boy, the man stood at a a pump. However, comparison with another image taken by Daguerre of the same spot at noon reveals boxes used to hold brushes and polishes.

  Like every Daguerreotype — the first publicly announced photographic process, and named after Daguerre — the photograph was a mirror image.  Here is the image reversed back to show the view as Daguerre saw it: “

New Device Detects Nearby Cops, Officers Not Happy With Product

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A new car device called “Target Blu Eye,” developed and sold by the Dutch company Target Automotive, advertises the ability to warn drivers of nearby police officers, and cops are upset about this.

  The device is marketed as a way to warn drivers of nearby emergency vehicles which have not turned on their emergency lights or sirens, signalling their proximity to the driver.

  Blu Eye works by monitoring frequencies used by various emergency vehicles, including ambulances, firetrucks, and police cars, and then alerts the driver to the presence of such vehicles.  According to the Free Thought Project, the monitor also works when radars and other equipment used by police even when the equipment is turned off.  Even a turned off police radio on a foot-patrol is reportedly detected by the device.

  Dan Bizley, chief engineer for Blu Eye, said, though it warns people of nearby emergency vehicles, it cannot distinguish between the type of emergency vehicle.  “As it does not distinguish between a police car, ambulance or fire engine responding to an emergency,” said Bizley, “this particular device is sadly just as likely to be bought by a minority of motorists who wish to evade being caught behaving illegally.”

  Because Blu Eye does not distinguish or  interfere with the signals and frequencies used by emergency vehicles, there is no legal precedent to make the device illegal, at least in parts of Europe where the device is sold.”
