143 New Nazca Lines Discovered in Peru with the help of A.I. Technology | Ancient Architects

Ancient Architects
Nov 18, 2019

Huge thanks to Michael Wolf for alerting me about this story!

A team of Japanese researchers from Yamagata University and IBM Research have discovered an incredible 143 stunning geoglyphs, etched into the desert in southern Peru around the enigmatic Nazca Lines.

It is yet another example of how technology is assisting archaeology because a number of images were found using state-of-the-art AI technology developed by IBM, finds that were then confirmed with an on-site investigations.

The geoglyphs include humans, birds, camels, cats and other animals and were found between 2016 and 2018. They were identified through fieldwork and analysing high-resolution 3D data and aerial photography. Incredibly, one geoglyph in particular was solely discovered with AI technology, without the aid of humans, making it the first geoglyph discovered by an AI.

Back in April 2018 I reported in a video that Peruvian archaeologists in the Palpa province of Peru had discovered more than 50 new geoglyphs (youtu.be/gpkc7-9_604) so this new discovery by the Japanese team builds on the ever-expanding line of study.

This is a pleasant bit of news, I must say. I love it when new pieces of the puzzle are discovered!

“In 1925 through 1927, the Rudge-Whitworth company introduced a line of touring accessories which have never been equaled by any other motorcycle manufacturer…

Specifically, Rudge introduced a full touring caravan, complete with dining table and beds, which could be towed behind one of their ‘4-valve, 4-speed’ models. Added to this, one could order a sidecar chassis carrying a quick-detachable canoe! This was no ‘miniature’ boat, as some manufacturers produced in the 1950s for sidecar haulage; the Rudge canoe was fully 14 feet long. Yet, the company advertised that the “Canoe sidecar can be turned round in a circle of 20 feet diameter, which very few motor cars are capable of doing. To river lovers it gives great mobility and makes it possible to become acquainted with half the rivers in the country.””

I think this is beautiful and perfectly illustrates a time when America really was great and an attitude and practical, empowering philosophy that was so prevalent then.

I doubt that I or anyone else will ever see its like again.

 

 

Bluebird

Speed ace died as his windscreen decapitated him

Published: Saturday 26 October 2002

THE final chapter in the life and death of Donald Campbell was written yesterday to reveal that the legendary speed ace was decapitated by Bluebird’s windscreen exploding at 300mph.

Campbell’s craft crashed on Coniston Water in 1967 as he attempted to better his own world record of 297mph.

Ironically, he succeeded, but only for the seconds before his apparent impatience to become the fastest man alive caused him to make a fatal error, an inquest into his death heard.

The inquest was set up following the recovery last year of Bluebird and Campbell’s remains from the Cumbrian lake.

It was held in a school classroom within sight of where Campbell died.

Details of Campbell’s “second” and fatal race for the record were described to the coroner, Ian Smith.

He heard that Campbell planned to make two attempts on the record hoping to achieve a speed of 328 mph on at least one of the “runs.”

The first run on the “mirror-like” surface went well.

But Campbell, a hero to Fifties schoolboys, who had eclipsed his father’s record-breaking exploits on land and water, turned too quickly into the second and encountered his own wake.

The disturbance caused the nose of Bluebird to rise.

The boat’s plastic windshield shattered and severed Campbell’s head, the coroner was told.

Mr Smith heard the most likely cause of the crash was a sudden “throttling back” at a critical time.

Wow!

Neat looking thing, is it not?

Bummer, it ending as it did.

Cryptids and Monsters: Stoa

Apr 18, 2019

Well, like the videomaker, this class of cryptid reports is far and away my favorite.

I had not heard much from Texas as opposed to Colorado and Wyoming, but, that is really down to my physical and mental conditions causing a whole lot of nothing to take place. The creator is not up on the latest in dinosaur knowledge and he keeps calling them T-Rex, which is kind of annoying, as they are obviously not.

Truth be told, the majority of dinosaurs of all types were small, like most of the subjects of these videos, 2 or 3 feet tall.

Let us forgive him his sins and just enjoy the wonderful collection of stories he has compiled along with some very fine research into these critters, quite a few of which are new to me.

Some good stuff here, folks and Gol dang it, if I had the ability I would be down there with a tonne of recording devices for as long as it took to get some fine stuff.

Highly recommended!

Chris Rodrigues & Abby the Spoon Lady – I Wake Up With The Blues

“Ever wake up with the blues so bad you feel like rolling back over in your bed and going back to sleep? My mother and I were evicted from the home I grew up in first thing on Christmas morning a few years back, shortly after a romantic breakup. The words are true. I made out of this blues through prayer. I wrote this song on the side of my bed. ” – Chris Rodrigues

I wake up with the blues now mama
I just roll back in my bed
I wake up with the blues now mama
I just roll back in my bed
cause I don’t wanna think about
all them troubles rolling round my head
I’m feeling mean feeling mean
I ain’t got one nice thing to say
I’m feeling mean feeling mean
I ain’t got one nice thing to say
I’m asking God for forgiveness
I better get down on my knees and pray
well my rider she done left me
took my world for a spin
well my rider she done left me
took my world for a spin
if I fall back down in love
the same things bound to happen again
some say its a feeling
I think its a dog gone curse
some say its a feeling
I think its a dog gone curse
I wake up with the blues now mama
it gets back then it gets worse
I wake up with the blues now mama
I just roll back in my bed
I wake up with the blues now mama
I just roll back in my bed
cause I don’t wanna think about
all them troubles rolling round my head
cause I don’t wanna think about
all them troubles rolling round my head
cause I don’t wanna think about
all them troubles rolling round my head

Chinese tourist spots fish with ‘human face’ in lake A fish with a “human-like face” was spotted swimming in a lake by a tourist in southwestern China’s Kunming on November 5. A woman says: “See the fish has become a fairy, it has a human-like face.” The markings on the fish resemble that of a human’s eyes, nose and mouth. According to fish farmers, the fish is actually a kind of carp.

That looks just too good!

The Secret Failed Soviet Moon Landing

Dark Docs

Subscribe to Dark Docs – bitly.com/DarkDocs

At the height of the Space Race, the United States and the Soviet Union bitterly tried to outdo one another, each attempting to be the first to succeed in a number of scientific and exploratory challenges. In the beginning the Soviets won many of the ‘firsts’, such as launching the first craft to enter Earth’s orbit, Sputnik 1 in October 1957, sending to space the first living animal, Laika, on Sputnik 2 in November 1957, and putting the first man in orbit with Yuri Gagarin’s mission in April 1961.

In fact, by most accounts, the USSR was even ahead of the United States in sending the first man to the moon by the time US president John F. Kennedy’s famous “We choose to go” speech in 1962. The Soviets had already landed the Luna 2 probe on the moon’s surface in 1959, and they were in the middle of developing a manned-mission that was strikingly similar to the US effort. Yet, that early success would eventually be forgotten as the Soviet Union buried their final moon missions in secrecy. Because just as Neil Armstrong was setting foot on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969, the Luna 15 lander was crashing into the other side of the moon. It is a story the Soviets did not want the world to know…

Jefferson Starship – White Rabbit Recorded Live: 11/8/1975 – Winterland – San Francisco, CA

More Jefferson Starship at Music Vault: www.musicvault.com Subscribe to Music Vault on YouTube: goo.gl/DUzpUF

Personnel:
Grace Slick – vocals
Paul Kantner – vocals, guitar
Marty Balin – vocals, percussion
David Frieberg – keyboards, bass, vocals
Craig Chaquico – lead guitar
Pete Sears – bass, piano
Johnny Barbata – drums, vocals (on track #4)

Summary:
Recorded after the monumentally successful Red Octopus album release, but prior to 1976’s Spitfire album, this Jefferson Starship concert captures the band performing a diverse set before a hometown audience. With singer Marty Balin back in the fold, the group again contained the three primary vocalists from the Jefferson Airplane, now supported by vocalist, keyboardist, part-time bassist, and ex-Quicksilver Messenger Service member David Frieberg; the young guitar prodigy Craig Chaquico; and the superb rhythm section of bassist/pianist Pete Sears and drummer Johnny Barbata. The group was riding high on the multi-platinum Red Octopus album and was arguably at a new peak of popularity.

This set is not only represented by material from the early Jefferson Starship albums and a couple of Jefferson Airplane classics, but interestingly features live performances of material from Grace Slick’s first solo album plus two of the best tracks Marty Balin recorded with his post-Jefferson Airplane project, Bodacious D F.

The recording begins in progress, with the group wrapping up Vic Smith’s “Drivin’ Me Crazy,” the most infectious track from the obscure Bodacious D F album. This sweeping, heart-breaking song about longing for lost love serves as a perfect vehicle for Balin’s romantically emotive vocals. An extended version of the Jerry Gallup/Craig Chaquico composition, “That’s For Sure” follows, clocking in at nearly twice the length of the studio recording featured on the 1974 Jefferson Starship album, Dragonfly. With barrelhouse piano support from Sears, Grace Slick next takes over with a very bawdy take on “Better Lying Down,” a track from her first solo album, Manhole.

In a rare instance of drummer Johnny Barbata fronting the band, they next deliver “Big City,” the song he co-wrote with ex-Canned Heat guitarist Joel Scott Hill and original Flying Burrito Brothers bassist Chris Etheridge. Here Barbata handles lead vocals on a song soon to be recorded for the group’s next album, Spitfire. Returning to Dragonfly material, David Frieberg next fronts the band on “Come To Life,” a song containing words by the Grateful Dead’s lyricist extraordinaire, Robert Hunter.

A second taste of the rare Bodacious D F material is next with “The Witcher.” Beginning introspectively, this becomes an explosive R&B workout featuring Balin’s lustfully unhinged vocals. Dipping back even further, the group next tackles one of Kantner’s early sci-fi classics, “Have You Seen The Saucers.” Sandwiched in the middle of this Jefferson Airplane number is an extended and pummeling bass solo courtesy of Pete Sears. This leads up to a raucous take of “White Rabbit,” one of Grace Slick’s signature songs. The recording concludes with the first taste of Red Octopus material. Craig Chaquico’s “Sweeter Than Honey” clearly shows the band heading in a straightforward rock direction, which would capture the attention of a new legion of fans, while alienating older fans that preferred more thought provoking lyrics and the more experimental sound of the Airplane. This leads into a drum solo by Johnny Barbata, prior to the tape stock running out.

With all three Airplane vocalists again on board and a wealth of diverse material in the group’s touring repertoire, the Jefferson Starship was arguably nearing its peak around this time. With personnel as well as musical changes again in store as the 1970s wore on, the group would rarely be this engaging again and this recording, although not without it’s flaws, represents the Jefferson Starship nearing the end of their golden era.

A bit different…

“The Snow Cruiser”—Antarctica’s Abandoned Behemoth

Calum
Mar 20, 2019

What happened to the Antarctic Snow Cruser? In 1939 a fifty-five feet long, twenty feet wide monster, weighing 37 tonnes and designed to have a range of over 8000 miles arrived on Antarctica. Built in the late 1930s for Richard E. Byrd’s Third Antarctic Expedition, it was one of the most incredible ventures in engineering history, not just in its size and scale but also her failure as an exploratory vehicle and subsequent disappearance.

In this video, I look at the background, design and disappearance of the Snow Cruser and ask what happened to this incredible vehicle (I’m afraid it’s not good news).

Den Beweis dafür, dass an dem Sprichwort „Totgesagte leben länger“ was Wahres dran ist, hat Heino im vergangenen Jahr mehr als eindeutig geliefert. Plötzlich ging alles ganz schnell! Heino überrascht mit neuem Repertoire. Das Album „Mit freundlichen Grüßen“ verkauft sich mehr als 250.000 Mal. Heino stürmte mit knapp 75 Jahren die deutschen Albumcharts und wird zum Downloadkönig des Jahres gekürt.

Jetzt setzt Heino dem ganzen noch die Krone auf! So kommt es, dass er jetzt seine eigenen volkstümlichen Hits, die seine Fans bei nahezu jedem Konzert von ihm einfordern, covert. Doch einfach nur covern wäre langweilig. Mit verschiedenen Produzententeams aus der Rock und Metalszene hat er völlig neue Rockversionen aus seinen alten Schlagern gezaubert! Und so wird – passend zur Musik – aus dem alt bekannten Schlager „Blau blüht der Enzian“ der dem Genre entsprechende Albumtitel „Schwarz blüht der Enzian“.

SCHWARZ BLÜHT DER ENZIAN
HOLLA DI LA HOLLA DI HO
HOLLA DIHO LA HOLLA DI HO
WENN DES SONNTAGS FRÜH UM VIERE DIE SONNE AUFGEHT
UND DAS SCHWEIZER MADL AUF DIE ALM AUFGEHT
BLEIB ICH JA SO GERN AM WEGRAND STEHN JA STEHN
DENN DAS SCHWEIZER MADL SANG SO SCHÖN
JA JA SO BLAU BLAU BLAU BLÜHT DER ENZIAN
WENN BEIM ALPENGLÜHN WIR UNS WIEDERSEHEN
MIT IHREN RO-RO-RO-ROTEN LIPPEN FING ES AN
DIE ICH NIE VERGESSEN KANN
BLAU BLAU BLAU
JA BLAU BLAU BLAU
BLÜHT DER ENZIAN

IN DER ERSTEN HÜTTE DA HABEN WIR ZUSAMMEN GESESSEN
IN DER ZWEITEN HÜTTE DA HABEN WIR ZUSAMMEN GEGESSEN
IN DER DRITTEN HÜTTE HAB ICH SIE GEKÜSST
KEINER WEIß WAS DANN GESCHEHEN IST

JA JA SO BLAU BLAU BLAU BLÜHT DER ENZIAN
WENN BEIM ALPENGLÜHN WIR UNS WIEDERSEHN
MIT IHREN RO-RO-RO-ROTEN LIPPEN FING ES AN
DIE ICH NIE VERGESSEN KANN

Heino – Alte Kameraden Marsch

Germanmusicfan
Oct 26, 2013

15.Geburtstag des Heino-Rathaus-Café in Bad Münstereifel am 26.Juni 2011.
Alte Kameraden Marsch. Lyrics:
Freunde, heut’ wird’s eine lange Nacht,
weil wir alte Kameraden seh’n.
Freunde, heut’ wird einer draufgemacht,
weil wir wieder beieinandersteh’n.

Heute kommen sie von nah und fern,
uns’re alten Kameraden her.
Hoch soll’n sie leben beim Saft der Reben,
darauf freuen wir uns sehr.

Singt und lacht durch die ganze Nacht,
denn wir haben lang uns nicht geseh’n.
Singt und lacht, bis der Tag erwacht,
weil wir immer zueinandersteh’n.

Freud und Leid – alles wird geteilt,
und wir sind doch für einander da.
Denn wir sind Freunde, gute alte Freunde.
Freunde, eines ist doch klar:

Wahre Freundschaft gibt’s nicht oft auf dieser Welt,
wahre Freundschaft ist das einzige, was zählt.
Wahre Freundschaft, echte Freundschaft
ist doch viel mehr wert als Gut und Geld.

Kameraden, hoch die Tassen bis zum Morgenrot.
Wir leben nur so kurze Zeit und sind so lange tot.
Freunde, singt und lacht und bringt das alte Herz in Schwung,
denn wer immer fröhlich ist, der bleibt jung.

Ach, wie schön war einst die Zeit,
als wir jung war’n und zum Glück bereit.
Ach, so vieles ist gescheh’n,
drum seid froh, daß wir uns wiederseh’n.

Lebe heut’, schau nicht zurück,
denn nur heute findest du dein Glück.
Darum hebt das Glas voll Wein
und laßt uns alte Kameraden sein!

Hast du Sorgen, schick sie fort,
denn noch immer gilt das Wort:
schwarz und dunkel ist die Nacht,
immer kurz bevor der Tag erwacht.

Leid und Kummer, das vergeht,
weil die Welt sich weiter dreht,
darum hebt das Glas voll Wein
und laßt uns alte Kameraden sein!

That was a lot of Heino ! Me be smiling.
