alewife going up river to spawn - blows your mind

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Mon, 05/13/2013 - 14:14.

The 70 year old lady next to me watching this scene was from Germany.   

The Atlantic Alewife herring were running up the river to spawn - and to feed the Great Blue heron and the terns.

Very dramatic life and death stuff going on here.

Below is a list of names and the links found on the Cleveland Police Department Website of the Missing Persons in Cleveland, Ohio. The link has photos but more photos are needed. Thanks a million for everyone's continued vigilance and help in finding these girls. It is unbelievable that these people cannot be found after years...but it's time to map this out Cleveland and find our people. The police keep saying that they won't map it out geographically because they want to respect the privacy of the families....but we need to find our citizens.....prayerfully alive!!!

How does the diameter of the hole in the wall act with regard to focal distance?

The image above has about a 4 foot focal distance.

Camera Obscura - lots to learn!

Image: George Samuel - about 3.5 minute exposure.

Phase out US nuclear plants, Fukushima

 I read here that the massive disaster at Fukushima was because the operator was too cheap to keep up needed repairs, and now has no incentive to clean up the disaster. www.washingtonsblog.com/cat/sciencetechnology

REALNEO at a glance...living in Cleveland nightmares... 1) Homeowner's Insurance is Redlined and inflated costs make it costly to own a home due to crime rates. 2) Auto Insurance is high because of same crime rates. 3) Mail Theft. 4) Identity Theft 5) Income Tax Return Theft 6) Casing by neighbors to rob your house. 7) Predators everywhere eyeballing your children. 8) NGO, City Leadership, and County Leadership all collusively engaged in fraud upon the public. 9) Social Service Agencies thriving off the quotas of the low income; the disabled, and the elderly.

The Big Owe - Montreal's 1976 Olympic Stadium fiasco

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 04/30/2013 - 11:13.

If you look at the image, you can just barely see the roof lift cables extending between the "arm" and the white roof of the stadium.   But, the roof doesn't lift.

As it turns out, this 1976 Montreal Olympic stadium - though still standing and still used -  is forensicly studied as an example of engineering failure and cost over runs.

Getting Old Together after years of friendship - so beautiful it's hard to look at dry eyed

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Mon, 04/29/2013 - 22:09.

Sunday I went with a friend to the municipal (not Cleveland's expensive) botanical garden.  As we approached the front entry there was a little plaza, and on the plaza the couple in the image above enjoyed the sun and passer bys.  

It was one of the first warm days of spring, a good time to be outside enjoying being alive.
