Bugger it, close enough, Beer O'clock time (watching all the activity out of my window on the oval has given me a thirst).

Bottoms up & cheers!

Australia's 1st taste of ‘Lone wolf’ terrorism by middle eastern persons happened well before al Qaeda and ISIS were even thought of.

Looks like Vlad is trying very hard to provoke an international incident.

Going on recent photos it looks like he must need money for another facelift.

Kaci Hickox a nurse who was confined against her will at a New Jersey hospital after returning from West Africa where she treated Ebola patients said she’s prepared to go to court if the state of Maine tries to quarantine her.

Even modern Russian rocket engine designs have a bad habit of blowing up so why use a design that dates back to the 1960's?

http://www.news.com.au/technology/science/russian-engines-from-the-1960s-may-have-caused-antares-explosion/story-fnjwlcze-1227106766686

Even before Tuesday’s failure, Orbital Sciences had been reviewing alternatives to the Russian-made engines, Thompson said. The company recently had selected a different main propulsion system for use in a couple of years, and the switch may be accelerated if the Russian engines prove to be the culprit, he said.

The AJ26 engines — modified and tested in the U.S. — originally were designed for the massive Soviet rockets meant to take cosmonauts to the moon during the late 1960s.

Three years ago, an AJ26 leaked kerosene fuel and ignited on the test stand at a NASA centre in Mississippi. Just this past May, another of the engines exploded during a test firing there.

In 2012, SpaceX’s billionaire founder and CEO, Elon Musk, called the Antares rocket “a punchline to a joke” because of the Russian engines. SpaceX, by contrast, makes its own rocket parts.

“I mean they start with engines that were literally made in the ‘60s and, like, packed away in Siberia somewhere,” Musk said in an interview with Wired magazine.

Cheers.

Urs - those work units have been validated, but there are ghosts hanging around which need to be purged. This is done every now and then, and is a semi-manual task.

Well, yes.

And will be the reason why the number remaining will not hit zero until a manual clean up is done. ;-)

Cheers.

Many of you will enjoy this article. I saw it a couple weeks ago and then forgot to post it until now.



150 year old beer! Like to guzzle some of those...


Would be interesting to try but i have my doubts.


Ancient ingredients are the best my friend:) Cheers!

They've been taking their time with this as I remember when that beer was found and the plans they had for it back then.

Cheers.

hmm?

CDC admits droplets from a sneeze could spread Ebola

Ebola is a lot easier to catch than health officials have admitted — and can be contracted by contact with a doorknob contaminated by a sneeze from an infected person an hour or more before, experts told The Post Tuesday.

http://nypost.com/2014/10/29/cdc-admits-droplets-from-a-sneeze-could-spread-ebola/


Those droplets are bodily fluids distributed by particles, I'd consider the underlined not a hypothesis, but a fact.

+1

G'morning everyone, as I watch a fog bank move down along the river behind all the activity on the oval getting ready for the wool & scarecrow festival which starts here tomorrow.
