Located in the heart of Sanlitun Beijing, Marina Residence is a Beijing Courtyard Residence in Tuanjiehu District, next to East Third Ring Road. The original site consists of a series of existing buildings with different heights and structures. In spite of their architectural differences, the design aims to “re-connect” to complete as a whole:Save this picture!exterior.

Listen To UM’s Joel Cummins Play An Atrium Set On Jam Cruise, Two Years Ago Today

first_imgWith yet another Jam Cruise looming right around the corner, it’s hard to not go back and listen to some of the best moments of past cruises. One particular set that always seems to hit just right is the low-key, intimate Atrium sets. For those that have not been on the best party at sea you can ever attend, the Atrium sets are roughly 45 minutes long, hosted by one artist on the grand piano, and typically feature a number of special guests, and plenty of interesting stories. It’s the perfect lounge set, and one that you don’t get to witness in most setting.Jam Cruise Announces Jam Room Hosts, Piano Sets & Theme NightsUmphrey’s McGee‘s keyboardist Joel Cummins, a regular on the ship, played a particularly memorable set on 1/6/15, which featured guest spots from Paul Hoffman and Anders Beck of Greensky Bluegrass, who helped perform their own “Burn Them” and Umphrey’s fan-favorite “In The Kitchen.” Jason Hann of The String Cheese Incident also sat-in on “Kitchen” along with a set-closer of Joe Cocker‘s “Feelin’ Alright.”The rest of the set consisted of takes on classical numbers by Dmitry Kabalevsky, Claude Debussy, the jazz standard “Linus and Lucy” by Vince Guaraldi, and the Umphrey’s McGee song “Orfeo” which featured the deft skills that Cummins possesses. If there is one tip that we can give you about a Jam Cruise excursion, it’s to definitely NOT miss an Atrium set.Take a listen to Joel Cummins’ 2015 set below, courtesy of taper Eric McRoberts.Setlist: Joel Cummins | The Atrium of Jam Cruise | 1/6/15Sonatina No. 1 Op 32 [Dmitry Kabalevsky]Pour Le Piano Suite: Piano Prelude [Claude Debussy]In Memory Of My Father [Bill Evans]Doctor Gradus Ad Parnassum [Claude Debussy]Linus And Lucy [Vince Guaraldi]Improv > Orfeo [Umphrey’s McGee]Burn Them * [Greensky Bluegrass]In The Kitchen *@ [Umphrey’s McGee]Feelin’ Alright *@ [Joe Cocker]* w/ Paul Hoffman – Mandolin & Anders Beck – [email protected] w/ Jason Hann – Percussionlast_img read more

Sea Monster Fossils Found in Arctic

first_imgThe BBC News reported the discovery of over two dozen plesiosaurs, pliosaurs and ichthyosaurs (see 04/20/2005) north of Norway.  Skeletons of the large marine reptiles, completely assembled, were found buried in fine-grained sedimentary layers of black shale.  “Everything we’re finding is articulated,” said Jorn Harald Hurum, co-director of the dig.  “It’s not single bones here and there, and bits and pieces – these are complete skeletons.”  The preservation was remarkable also in how fresh they looked, “like roadkill,” a bleached white against the black of the shale.  “Something happened with the chemistry that’s really good for bone preservation,” Dr. Hurum said.    Plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs lived in the age of dinosaurs and went extinct at the same time.  Hurum “was taken aback by the sheer density of fossil remains in one area,” the article said.  Hurum told the BBC, “You can’t walk for more than 100m without finding a skeleton.  That’s amazing anywhere in the world.”  Another said, “These sites are very unusual.  To find that many individuals is a remarkable thing – that’s a bonanza.”  One of the specimens they nicknamed the Monster may be 26 feet in length.The article speculates that these large creatures calmly died and sank to the bottom of the sea, where they were slowly buried.  Would not bacteria and predators have devoured any trace of them?  And even if the bones remained, would they not have disarticulated and spread apart?  They must have been buried suddenly at the same time.  Like so many other fossil graveyards, this area tells a silent tale of catastrophe.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Still great potential with drones in ag

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Farmers and ranchers are eager to use airborne drones to improve their businesses, but they need flexibility to use these tools to their full potential, the American Farm Bureau Federation told the Federal Aviation Administration in comments focusing on performance-based standards, in its rule on the “Operation and Certification of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems.”Farmers and ranchers have increased their yields while reducing their environmental footprint, thanks to advances in precision agriculture.“Drones are the next evolution in American agriculture,” said Dale Moore, AFBF executive director of public policy. “Used properly they let us grow more food on available land using less water and fewer pesticides. High-tech cameras and other airborne sensors give us important tools with which to reduce erosion and keep agricultural runoff to the absolute minimum. This is important not just for farmers but for anyone else who cares deeply about the environment. These tools won’t do anyone any good if they’re grounded by restrictions that make them too cumbersome to use.”Farmers need performance-based standards for drone use that promote innovation while keeping safety a top priority, the Farm Bureau wrote.For all the good they do, new technologies are not without risk, Farm Bureau told regulators. Farmers and ranchers need to be able to manage these tools safely and should be assured that their farm data is secure and cannot be used unfairly against them.“Farmers and ranchers are ready to unlock the potential of new technologies in agriculture, and we’re hopeful that the FAA’s final rule gives them a key to do that safely and quickly,” Moore said.last_img read more

Why plant cover crops?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Randall Reeder, P.E., Ohio State University Extension Agricultural Engineer (retired)Jim Hershey, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, knows the absolute necessity for keeping pollutants out of streams. His family farms in the Susquehanna River watershed, which flows into the Chesapeake Bay. When severe restrictions were placed on crop and livestock farms a few years ago, the Hershey Farm was already in compliance.Cover crops and continuous no-till are keys to meeting restrictions on keeping nutrients and sediment out of streams and lakes. We need to recognize that Ohio farmers will eventually need to meet the “Chesapeake Bay” standards for Lake Erie and the Mississippi River.Jim Hershey spoke at the Aug. 29 no-till field day at Wooster. He emphasized that cover crops should be treated as a cash crop.Here’s what cover crops provide: increased water holding capacity, reduced weed pressure, reduced crop stress, reduced slug pressure, increased organic matter, and herbicides can be cut by two-thirds when planting green.Any green living cover will help reduce carbon dioxide loss into the atmosphere. In contrast, a conventional corn-soybean rotation annually loses about 1,000 pounds of carbon per acre. No-till with cover crops can be part of a solution for global warming.The Hershey Farm is an innovator (and inventor) for interseeding cover crops into corn. They build and sell interseeders, 6- and 12-row. Hershey, and many others, are researching various cover crops to find ones that can germinate and survive the summer without reducing corn yields.At the field day, twenty speakers covered a range of topics. Rory Lewandowski, OSU Extension, organized a session on using cover crops for forage and erosion control that featured three local farmers: Mike Rupp, Doyle Stoller and Alan Kozak. Jim Hoorman, NRCS, spoke on success with no-till corn, and Ryan Haden, OSU-ATI, shared his research with interseeding cover crops into corn.last_img read more

Twitter Puts the Smack Down on Another Popular App: Whither Twitter as a Platform?

first_imgTags:#Analysis#twitter#web Related Posts mike melanson Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditcenter_img The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos This morning TwapperKeeper, the Twitter-based service that allowed users to create and export archives of Tweets around certain words or hashtags, announced that it would be shutting down a number of key features of the service to remain in compliance with Twitter’s Terms of Service. According to the company’s blog post, the archiving and API features will be shut down by March 20. While TwapperKeeper may be just one service among many to be forced into compliance, is its fate indicative of a larger movement in the Twitter ecosystem?“While we realize that these features are very important to many of our users,” writes TwapperKeeper founder John O’Brien, “this change comes at the request of Twitter to bring our service into alignment with the API Terms of Service…regarding redistribution and syndication of content.”The particular clause in the Twitter TOS (1.4.A) says that you will not “sell, rent, lease, sublicense, redistribute, or syndicate the Twitter API or Twitter Content to any third party for such party to develop additional products or services without prior written approval from Twitter.” According to O’Brien, this move by Twitter could signal that any service that engages in providing structured data not solely for personal use will be affected.“What I’m seeing is, anybody who is ‘syndicating’ content, ie allowing it to be downloaded and exported in any structured way, is running afoul of the terms of service,” said O’Brien. “If it’s in HTML, it’s fine. The minute it became structured it became a problem.”The End of An Era?Hacker Advocate, Web API geek, and @answerly developer Abraham Williams lamented the news, tweeting “RIP Golden age of Twitter -Twapper Keeper removes features/API because of Twitter TOS.”Has something indeed changed? Has the “golden age of Twitter” come to an end? Twitter has been cracking down on a number third-party services and features over recent weeks, with the official shut-down of the API whitelist earlier this month and last week’s crackdown on UberMedia. In its announcement that it had shutdown Twidroyd and UberTwitter, Twitter said that every day it “suspend[s] hundreds of applications that are in violation of our policies. Generally, these apps are used by a small number of users.” While TwapperKeeper may be just one of hundreds, it has been around for nearly two years with a number of users relying on its API and export features.So how might this be the end of an era? Williams said that things have changed for anyone considering a startup around Twitter’s platform.“Before Chirp last year and before Twitter bought Tweetie, few thought twice about building a company in the Twitter ecosystem.” said Williams, “With recent events I would more then think twice (probably think three/four times) before building a Twitter based company.”The Question Is, Why Now?TwapperKeeper got its start in June 2009 and has been offering API access for almost that entire time. O’Brien says that he even submitted whitelist requests early on explaining exactly the nature of his service. We asked Twitter about the situation and were told that it is a matter of its TOS and Twitter stability.“We ask all developers in the Twitter ecosystem to abide by a simple set of rules that are in the interests of our users, as well as the health and vitality of the platform as a whole,” said a Twitter spokesperson. “We often take actions to enforce these rules; in fact, on an average day we turn off more than one hundred services that violate our API rules of the road. This keeps the ecosystem fair for everyone.”On the point of Twitter’s “health and vitality”, Williams pointed out that if nobody can create their own API, then everyone has to use Twitter’s, which could put a much larger strain on Twitter’s API.In all, Twitter keeps pointing to this “simple set of rules,” but why hasn’t the company enforced the rules until now? Has TwapperKeeper simply flown under the radar for the past year and a half or has something fundamental changed? Is It So “Simple”?Favstar.fm founder Tim Haines explained that API access to Favstar is something that developers have been asking for, but Twitter has turned him down. Enforcement, he says, has been less than uniform.“I’ve casually asked Twitter if it would be okay to offer one in the past, and they’ve said no,” said Haines. “It’s a rule that’s not very well enforced at the moment, as a lot of services, high profile ones included, offer an API that makes Twitter information available outside the terms they’ve agreed with Twitter.”While Haines plans on continuing to petition Twitter for this sort of functionality, there is another service that we were pointed to by several sources that seems to stand in direct contrast of Twitter’s stated point. Twitoaster, a service that “threads and archives your conversations in real time”, offers an API and has publicly done so for some time. The service was created by Arnaud Meunier, who is now a Twitter employee. The key part of the Twitter TOS that must apply here is the “without prior written approval from Twitter,” though inquiries on whether Twitoaster had this approval went unanswered by both Meunier and Twitter. Whither Twitter As A Platform?In a guest post here on ReadWriteWeb yesterday, TextCapital founder Jeff Pester argued that Twitter is a utility and needs to “get off the fence and start acting like one.”The blogosphere is preoccupied with the notion that this is proof that Twitter is at war with the developer ecosystem and that it’s somehow manipulating the playing field to favor its own homegrown apps.But that discussion misses the larger point: Companies like UberMedia are attempting to profit directly at the presentation and consumption end of the stream infrastructure that Twitter has bought and paid for. In my opinion, UberMedia has the right to monetize “consumption environments” (its apps) that add value to end users. At the same time, Twitter deserves to be compensated for the utility it’s providing to UberMedia.The only issue here should be: Who gets paid and how much?The big problem now, of course, is that developers have been working in a certain system for years and some feel that the rug is suddenly being pulled from beneath their feet. At the same time, developers have pointed out that a more stable service with clear definitions on its rules can benefit everyone. Haines explained that, by shutting down services that don’t meet the TOS, Twitter can clarify its position to all – a position that has been stated rather simply, but enforced less so.“It’ll be good if Twitter is currently taking some time to clean up rogue services,” said Haines ,”and make it clear what they allow and what they don’t allow.”The more general and obvious trend in all of this is Twitter’s move toward monetization. When Twitter killed the API whitelist, the primary suggestion for services that required more historical Twitter data was to pay Gnip, the only authorized reseller of Twitter data. When UberTwitter and Twidroyd were suspended, Twitter just happened (perhaps it was a terrible, coincidental PR failure) to be promoting its own clients with promoted trends. O’Brien couldn’t help but reach a similar conclusion.“I’m wondering if tomorrow they’re going to be saying there’s an archive open,” said O’Brien. “I’m just speculating.” Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationlast_img read more
