The core of a wire carries no radio fre-quency current and performs no electricalservice, because of this radio frequency phe-nomena called skin effect. The core maytherefore be made to perform a greater me-chanical duty. Hence the ideal wire forradio antenna should have a core of greatstrength (steel) and an outer covering of highconductivity (copper).

33 Postcards- Ritz

33 Postcards Movie Premiere At Randwick Ritz Sydney, by Eva Rinaldi

Tonight saw 33 Postcards enjoy its premiere at the Randwick Ritz, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The night was not only a movie premiere but also an event somewhat designed to raise awareness and funds for educational and arts programs, tied into the film.

33 Postcards enjoyed strong media support by popular radio station 2UE and benefiting Sydney Children’s Choir and their Bursary Program, giving disadvantaged kids musical and educational opportunities that would have otherwise likely been out of their grasp.

The acclaimed cast and crew of 33 Postcards enjoyed drinks and bites with their fan base, insiders, and entertainment media, and also lapped up performances from the Sydney Children’s Choir and Chinese Lion Dancers.

Then it was time for the Australian theatrical premiere of the flick.

The film was shot in both China and Sydney, Australia in 2010. It’s the story of Chinese orphan Mei Mei (Zhu Lin) who for a decade of dreams about embracing her Australian sponsor Dean Randall (Guy Pearce). It’s not until she reaches 16 years of age, when her orphanage travels down under to Australia to attend a Choir Festival, Mei Mei takes the opportunity to look him up. What she finds however is a far cry from the idyllic life he depicted in his postcards. Initially mismatched, together they begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance. It’s trial, tribulation, and living to fight and survive another day.

Dean is actually a convict in prison for manslaughter, so you can imagine the issues that brings on.

33 postcards won the Community Relations Commission Award at Sydney Film Festival and Victor Dominello MP NSW Minister aptly stated "33 Postcards, inspired by real life stories, explores how two individuals come together despite two different cultures, ages and unexpected circumstances." This evocative film portrays sensitively how people of vastly different cultural backgrounds can interact effectively in our society."

This is an unique and touching story that is rarely told about the relationship that some Aussies have with Chinese Orphans.

It’s not quite for everyone, but if you like a story of survival, beating the odds and the world coming together as one sort of thing, this is likely for you.

Well done to everyone involved in making the event a success.

Stars:

Guy Pearce, Zhu Lin, Claudia Karvan, and Lincoln Lewis

Produced by: Australia-China co-production

Displaying a Scrolling image at center of browser window

Displaying a Scrolling image at center of browser window

In this article, we will learn to display an image that initially appears at the center of  the browser window. On clicking the image, it will scroll to the left and will become invisible. That is, we will learn to surround the image in an invisible window so that when we click the image, it should scroll to the left (in the boundary of the invisible window) and disappears gradually.

Let us make an HTML file to define the image element to display the image that we want to appear on the screen. The HTML file may appear as shown below:

HTML code for “Displaying a Scrolling image at center of browser window”

<body>

<div id=”scroller”>

<img src=”image1.jpg” width=150px height=150px class=”image”/>

</div>

</body>

In the HTML code, we can see that the img element is enclosed within a div element which is assigned the id: ‘scroller’. The reason of making use of the div element is to assign the width and height to  the invisible window for the image (within which we want it to scroll).

Style Sheet code for “Displaying a Scrolling image at center of browser window”

We write the id selector  ‘#scroller’ in the style sheet so that the style properties defined in it can be automatically applied to the div element of id:’scroller’ without any need of jQuery code. The style sheet will also contain the class selector ‘.image’ to assign ‘relative’ property to ‘position’ property to the img element that is  very necessary to make the image scroll.

The style sheet: style.css may appear as shown below:

style.css

#scroller{

width:155px;

height:155px;

margin:auto;

overflow:hidden;

position:relative;

}

.image{

position:relative;

}

We can see that the id selector ‘#scroller’ contains the width and height property set to value ‘155px’ to define the width and height of the invisible window for the image. The margin property is set to value ‘auto’ so that window takes the margin space from the browser window automatically making the window to appear at the center of the width of the browser window. The value of the overflow property is set to hidden to make the region of the image that has scrolled out of the boundary of the window to become invisible. The position property is assigned the value ‘relative’ to make the image scroll relative to the enclosed window

The class selector ‘.image’ contains the position property set to value ‘relative’ to make the image scroll from its current position

jQuery code for “Displaying a Scrolling image at center of browser window”

The jQuery code to attach the click event to the image and the animate method (defined in the event handling function) to make the image scroll to the left and stop at the distance of -160px from the left side of the enclosing window (to become completely invisible)  is as shown below:

$(document).ready(function() {

$(‘.image’).click(function (event){

$(this).animate({‘left’: -160}, ‘slow’);

});

});

Initially, the image will appear completely at the center of the browser window as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1.  Image that appears on loading the web page

On clicking the image, it will start scrolling to the left and will disappear slowly and slowly as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2.  Image partially visible as being scrolled to the left

Increase your Intelligence through image streaming

Increase your Intelligence through image streaming

There are claims floating in Internet blogs and elsewhere that you might increase your personal IQ by as much as 20 points by the use of image streaming (cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_streaming).

You might have seen them yourself: there are thousands of web-sites and books peddling all kinds of methods for self-improvement and personal growth. We know because we’ve read perhaps not most of them but at least one typical specimen of each category, a (re)search quest that started over fourty years ago.

But let’s get back to the basics: what does (physiologically) constitute intelligence?

There’s but one thing that sets a more intelligent brain apart from one a little less so, its internal “wiring”:

1. the amount of connections (synapses) that relate brain cells with each other and equally important

2. the strength of these pathways

3. and how they relate with each other.

The way brain cells can interact with each other is virtually unlimited, that is to say, trying to calculate all possible combinations leaves us with a figure that’s many times higher than even the amount of atoms in the whole universe.

Then there’s also the speed with which new connections are formed, but research seems to suggest, that both human “subspecies”, those who are forming new connections rather quickly and the “neurologically slow” both have their mutually exclusive advantages in survival which is why both sets of genes are still transmitted down through the generations. We’ll discuss this topic in a forthcoming article.

Now, if the three points shown above by and large constitute the physiological basis for intelligence as it seems to be measured by standard tests, then we must only find out how these connections between cells (neurons) are increased? Well, as everyone knows, this process is simply called learning. The interesting thing is though, that learning can as much happen by interacting physically (including smelling, listening and seeing!) with your environment as well as interacting with a virtual world, like in thinking, meditation, contemplation etc.

This virtual world is for your brain cells every bit as real as the outside world, and the reason is easy to understand: that “outside” world does not exist for your brain – it is transmitted to your nerve cells via electrical impulses and it makes no real difference where these impulses are generated.

So when you vividly remember something you are training those pathways as much as if you experienced the scene physically that is now a memory! You can only exercise a limited amount physically per day without completely exhausting yourself but you can relive as many memories as you wish per day and you can create new experiences in your brain by … well, being creative! Since your subconscious mind does handle about ten million times more data over time than your conscious mind does, the most powerful method of creating an extra load of traffic on your neural pathways is to let your subconscious take over. That pretty much describes what image streaming is all about: associate freely and let flow and come forth everything that your subconscious produces. Since most of your memories are visual images, even if you are not consciously aware of it, this requires to let images flow freely, or, in other words, image streaming. And if you practice steadily and repeatedly you will eventually increase your IQ considerably as you beat new paths and create new paths (associations) between hitherto less or unconnected areas of your knowledge. And that, in essence, is intelligence.

Here are some resources that prove the point or shed more light on the subject:

Image-Streaming – Learn it here now—your most powerful mode of thinking and perceiving, by Win Wenger, Ph.D. http://www.winwenger.com/imstream.htm

Two GUARANTEED Ways to Profoundly Improve Your Intelligence, by Win Wenger http://www.winwenger.com/ebooks/guaran4.htm

Image Streaming – A Technique Review http://futureimperative.blogspot.com/2005/03/image-streaming-technique-review-al.html

It doesn’t matter, if it’s really 20 IQ points or less, the main point is: no matter where you start from, if you practice only a few times you will notice a much richer stream of visul imagery that helps you find creative solutions and helps to keep your brain fit – which is even a good way to stave off dementia, Alzheimer’s disease etc.

Stored inside a stone in the holographic image

Stored inside a stone in the holographic image

300 000 000

  Shijiazhuang out a grand ornamental stones fairs. My colleagues and I bought three stones with 570 dollars, and hire someone to transport home. A few days later, the stone surface has changed. A colored stone Bahrain there was a positive female head shape. Detailed observation, there was the image of many animals, including: Panda, dinosaurs (prototype), bear, fox, bird, oriole, peacocks, bats (image), Kirin (prototype), gecko (video), swan goose, Yunnan golden monkey, white swans, eagles, African chimpanzees, the African white macaws and other various video is not like other stones that pictograms, but, like the holographic images and photos, especially the bat Photos include more technical content such as holographic images, normally do not see images in a digital camera after shooting, two unidentified animal images, change the angle, great changes will occur after the observation (with photo).

Few signs of the back of the stone grinding, polishing the surface should not have appeared more than a fish, frogs and other aquatic animals of the image, but also as a clear and modern photographs. In the stone surface, the proportion of total external organs of various animals and nature in proportion consistent with animal organs. In the legend, with “angular” predators, were two legendary “Dragon”, lived in the water; First, the “unicorn” deer head, living in the land. The pattern in the rock face, there is such a graph, deer Longhorn, its mouth a rabbit, is chasing a deer (deer’s image is just a shadow); a dinosaur has a nose with eyes and ears, the neck also like horizontal wrinkles on an elephant nose, the unicorn, and whether the dinosaur’s image is the prototype of their original life? Information reflects the most ancient bat is a holographic image. Images stored in the same location of a stone, bottom width 0.5 cm, 1.5 cm high narrow space, with digital cameras at different camera angles, each shot a 15 degrees to the right, resulting in three different animal images, and is holographic images.

In the stone surface, in addition to the bat image can be identified with the naked eye, other two unknown naked eye can not directly observe the animal, which animal that might goose under the wings are still pressing the stone surface, it is estimated that the formation of stone surface should be a minimum million years, while the holographic image storage time should be more than 3 billion years. This phenomenon has been multidisciplinary picture of scientists and expert analysis identified no suspect fake. This is because the current scientific and technological achievements of mankind has not yet reached such levels. The question is: who is so superb that information stored in a very common stone and? The existence of hundreds of millions of years ago, Earth had higher levels of animals and experienced a higher civilization? This is a mystery to the world in the twenty-first century shows the first human “puzzle.” In addition, she also implies something more ancient and more esoteric scientific exploration? My rocks are not collectors, but also never studied the stone in the phenomenon makes me very confused. In short, I hope that this phenomenon has views of colleagues commented.
