And Now for Something Completely *

Well?

 

What then?

 

Something here doesn't hook up. There was no application of the brakes. There was time for the truck to have slammed on the brakes... even after hitting the bike... the driver would've been standing on the brakes... don"t see it. No dive in the front end of the truck... no sliding of the rear wheels.

This is a rip directly from the Youtube site:

 

This is a 24 hour observation of all of the large aircraft flights in the world,

condensed down to 1:11. From space we look like a bee hive of activity.

What you will see, is a video showing air traffic around the world for 24

hours, taken from a satellite.

 

The yellow dots are airplanes in the sky during a 24 hour period.

Stay with the picture. You will see the light of the day moving from the east

to the west, as the Earth spins on its axis. Also you will see the aircraft flow

of traffic leaving the North American continent and traveling at night to

arrive in the UK in the morning.

 

Then you will see the flow changing, leaving the UK in the morning and

flying to the American continent in daylight. This is something that

everyone should see. For us old-timers it is really fascinating. For our

children/grandchildren it provides a superb learning moment and an

opportunity to open up what could be a very interesting discussion.

 

This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. There are lots of people

in the sky at any given moment. You can tell it was spring time in the north

by the sun's foot print over the planet. You could see that it didn't set for

long in the extreme north and it didn't quite rise in the extreme south.

 

I have never seen this before. We are taught about the earth's tilt and

how it causes summer and winter and we have had to imagine just what

is going on. With this 24 hour observation of aircraft travel on the earth's

surface we get to see the daylight pattern move as well.

 

Remember; watch the day to night... Day is over in Australia when it starts.

 

 

EDIT: If you want the full screen version, click the "Youtube" icon at bottom

right of the movie frame. That should take you to the Youtube site where the

full screen mechanism will work. (I could not get full screen on the TL version here)

 

And enjoy!

While we are in space having a look around,

here is another time lapse series from the

International Space Station.

 

Kind of touches something a bit deeper

than the local drama, doesn't it!

Probably the longest Video I have watched while waiting for a trade to mature.

 

The scientist in this story, Bert Hoelldobler, and cameraman Wolfgang Thaler, tell an amazing educational and enriching story.

 

I didn't know that of the two creatures that domesticate and farm other creatures on earth, ants are one. (Humans are the other creatures to keep domestic animals).

 

If you are finding the video a bit long (I didn't) take a look from the 46:00 minute mark, where they pour 10 tons of liquid cement into a giant nest, and wait one month before excavating. The workings, design and construction of that underground world is a scientific miracle.

 

The smallest colony they discuss lives in a single Acorn - a complete life-cycle perpetuated within a 25mm Oak seed!

 

For those traders stressed out while watching the gyrations of market price, settle your mind and nerves by enjoying this interesting vid.

After viewing the above... I went looking for a computer simulation of how ants find food sources. I didn't find the particular one that I was looking for but, stumbled across a monolithic manufacturing method for producing very small robots... pretty cool:

That takes miniaturisation to "the next level" Jpennybags.

 

And I think ... just for today ... that this next effort takes it to what is currently possible.

 

Tomorrow?

 

I would like to credit the Australian ABC as the source for this story:

 

"Scientists reveal world's smallest movie"

 

Scientists reveal world's smallest movie - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

 

There is a lot more commentary about it at that link, compared to the little you will hear on the video.

This thread as been dormant for some time. Ran across this broadcast from "Radiolab" about "emergence"... kinda cool stuff. Radiolab... always entertaining:

This guy says that when putting his kids to bed and reading them a story, he realised that "they could have been without a dad tonight."

 

I'd have to agree ... but with more ... how did someone this crazy make the decision to have kids anyway, knowing that at any time he could, through his actions, rob them of that?

 

Base jumper survives equipment malfunction in Norway - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

 

It is just natural. We human beings feel the need to procreate,see our own offsprings and feel proud of ourselves. As much as he knows he could rob them that,he wanted to have them. Besides,we all live through risks daily....someone can die anytime and we all don't know when it is our time.

    • Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Platinum COT Change (52W) / C - 18%, LS – 20% / FTG Score / D -7.4, W -19.4, M -16.1 / The larger than average change in Large Specs and Commercials positions, together with the negative reading from FTG suggest we could see some weakness from platinum in the coming days… Bitcoin (CME) COT Extreme / LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 25.0, W 60.3, M 24.5 / We do not have such a history of cot data to be certain that we have cot signal that we can act upon, nevertheless it is interesting to see Large specs continuing to increase their net short positions, seeing Commercials net short and only Small specs taking the long side of the market. The all time extreme signal in LS would be generally considered a bullish signal, small spec net long a bearish FTG scores, especially the weekly show significant support for further rally in the market. Canadian Dollar COT Extreme / C - 72, LS – 68 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D 37.5, W -26.2, M -25.7 / In the past few weeks we have witnessed traders changing their positions towards a more bearish situation. The example from May 2017 to October the same year suggests that we could see this trend continuing for some time before the market dips back down. Daily FTG scores seem to back this, although the weekly and monthly already expect changes happening to the CAD. All the best,  Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
    • Bitcoin Price Prediction: Long-term (BTC) Value Forecast – July 20   BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging Resistance  $10,500, $11,000, $11,500 Support levels: $10,000, $9,500, $9,000   The BTC/USD pair had been trading in the bearish trend zone after facing resistance at the $13,000 overhead resistance level. On July 10, the BTC price reached a high of $13,000 but was resisted. The bears broke the 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA as the price fell to the bearish trend zone. In the previous resistances, the price fell within the bullish trend zone. On the upside, if the bulls break above the EMAs, the crypto’s price will rise to retest the $13,000 resistance level.   On the other hand, if the bulls fail to break above the EMAs.  the crypto's price  will commence a range bound move below the EMAs,Meanwhile, the MACD line, and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal.     The views and opinions expressed here do not reflect that of BitcoinExchangeGuide.com and do not constitute financial advice.

    • Deal Butler was an excellent trading system/forecaster with about 85% accuracy.  it worked very well until the 5th anniversary when it suddenly shut down.  i guess Mac X had made his and moved on.  i am surprised no one has resurrected the system in the intervening 10+ years since shutdown. 
    • The only thing I'd disagree with is "compared to a trend following approach." Many Ultra systems were fully or partially trend-following.  And I haven't seen any trend-following systems (not counting over-optimized with little real-time exposure ) that have worked very well over the last 15 years. The only one I use is a simple one with a very unique filter (not found in Ultra or anywhere else to my knowledge). But the UltraFS systems are as good as any of the trend-following strategies I'm aware of.
    • I pefer to consider how decisive the candle is when looking at the market sentiment at that exact moment. I think it's a more reliable source of information.
