What is Foam Board

Foam board or Foam core board is a strong and lightweight material that is easily cut with a sharp craft knife or picture framing mat cutter.
It is commonly used for the mounting of prints and photographs and as backing in picture frames.
Foamboard is easily formed into shapes that can be used for interior design and architectural models.
Foam board usually consists of three layers, an inner layer of polystyrene or polyurethane foam that is clad with an outer facing on each side of either a white clay coated paper, cotton archival paper or common brown Kraft paper.
For picture framing use we recommend the acid-free alpha cellulose clad boards as they have a longer lifespan and do not leach acids into the artworks. In high end conservation framing a further barrier of cotton rag boards or alpha-cellulose boards should be placed between the foam board and the original artwork. For more details on conservation framing and the Endurart Process please download a free PDF brochure here.

Since 1957 foam core board was made in 1/8 inch (3 mm) and 3/16 inch (5 mm) thicknesses by Monsanto under the trade name of Fome-Core®

It has now become a popular backing in picture framing, with archival-quality variants now available from several manufacturers.
Thicknesses from 3mm to 10mm are commonly available and a 20mm version is available for construction of large displays and art mounting applications.
There are other foam cored materials produced under various brand names that have a cladding of solid styrene or other rigid plastic coating. These are useful for signage and for situations where rigidity is required. Normally these boards are cut using a panel saw.
Some specialised boards are made with aluminium facing to allow mounting of high gloss photographic prints and some are made with fire-retardants for use in museum situations.
Clay-coated Foamcore does not accept certain types of paint and some glues, such as superglue is not suitable for bonding.  Solvents used in some paints and glues can dissolve the foam centre causing weakness and the breakdown of the structural integrity of the foamboard.
Water-based glues can warp the fibers in the outer layers upon drying causing warping so adhering a layer to the reverse side can minimise this issue. Best results are typically obtained from using double sided adhesive sheets or use our pre-coated self-adhesive foamboard if you wish to “drymount” your prints and photographs.
Self-adhesive foam boards can be unforgiving when it comes to mounting some items. If you want to watch a simple video on “How to mount a photo using foamboard” please watch it here.
After you have mounted your photograph or print onto self-adhesive foamboard you should allow some curing time where you keep the mounted work flat to ensure it does not warp before you assemble the image in a picture frame.
 For temporary mounting applications use plain foam board and then apply re-positionable spray adhesive to one of the surfaces, either the back of the image or the face of the board.

IBM Systems Technical University Australia Day 2 Poster Session


This week, I was in beautiful Melbourne, Australia for IBM Systems Technical University. On Wednesday evening, we had a poster session.

(I have so many photos that I will split this post up into topics. This post will focus on IBM Z systems, see my other posts for storage and IBM Power systems.)

Topics can be anything that is of interest to your peers and colleagues. It can be research-related, a specific solution you implemented or an interesting customer case you want to share.

Linux Scalability at a Small Scale (or, An Adventure In Minimalist Multitudinousness)

Vic Cross, IBM Senior Systems Engineer, used the Ganglia Monitor System to generate traffic and measure 1,680 Linux guests on a single IBM Z mainframe LPAR with only 16GB of memory! His poster consisted of 18 pages of material, a mix of traditional presentation slides, screen shots of web pages, and densely detailed performance results.

Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and Grids. It is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters. It leverages widely used technologies such as XML for data representation, XDR for compact, portable data transport, and RRDtool for data storage and visualization. It uses carefully engineered data structures and algorithms to achieve very low per-node overheads and high concurrency. The implementation is robust, has been ported to an extensive set of operating systems and processor architectures, and is currently in use on thousands of clusters around the world. It has been used to link clusters across university campuses and around the world and can scale to handle clusters with 2000 nodes. Learn more at []

Spectrum Scale 2 site cluster

Antony Steel, IBM Senior Consulting IT Specialist, presents an option to configure a 2 site GPFS (Spectrum Scale) “almost active-active” cluster when a 3rd site is not available. This option will require simple administrative tasks to make DR filesystem available should Production site fail. Spectrum Scale runs on IBM Z, IBM Power and x86 servers.

The poster used 13 traditional landscape slides, printed on what appears to be A4 paper. A4 is 297 mm wide, so three side by side exceeds the 841 mm width of the poster foam board. These were arranged with a title slide on top, and then 12 content slides in four rows of three.

While I was glad that someone else had a QR code on their poster, the placement was way at the top, and difficult for anyone to actually scan it. I thought of this, and had mine at waist level in the middle right side of my poster.

Life is better with Linux

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the back of this guy’s tee-shirt, which says “Life is better with Linux”

In effect, tee-shirts can also be “posters”, although that would make for an awkward “poster session” if everyone wore them? Pointing at your chest would be weird, and pointing to your back would be near impossible!

In 1999-2001, I helped the port of Linux to IBM S/390 mainframe chip-set architecture by testing and debugging the disk and tape device drivers. I was the first to install Linux on an IBM mainframe in Tucson, AZ!

I would then go on to work with SAN Volume Controller, Tivoli Storage Manager (now called Spectrum Protect), Tivoli Storage Productivity Center (now called Spectrum Control), and the General Parallel File System (GPFS, now called Spectrum Scale). All of these run on Linux!

I would become the “Linux storage expert” at conferences like SHARE and GUIDE. While my co-workers in DFSMS and z/OS felt Linux was just a fad, I predicted that Linux was going to be a major force in the IT industry. I was right, not only does Linux run on all of our IBM Z and Power servers, it is the underlying operating system for nearly all of IBM storage devices.

Today, I run Linux directly on my laptop, using a Windows KVM guest image as needed for specific projects or applications.

Erina Araki poses for a photo with one of the attendees, Marco. Erina was the organizer for this poster event, and was my primary contact to answer all of my questions. I think the poster session was a big success!

Foamcore Australia | The Light-Weight Board With Heavy Duty Applications

V-Flats are used to control light when photographing different subjects.

They are basically two large pieces of foam board taped together in the middle with gaffer’s tape or held together with Velcro. The most flexible v-flats are white on one side, black on the other and fold together to create a a right angle or Vee shape.

Many local art shops or signage stores carry a variety of materials you can use to make your V-Flats but often they don’t stock the large sheets required. A better option is to either get full sheets of foam board from somewhere like They have large sheets of both black and white foam core board that can be glued together to form the reversible reflector.

You’ll need two 4ft x 8ft pieces to make one V-Flat. It is best to get them around 10mm thick as anything thinner can bow and buckle and also fall over. The large sheets of foam board cost around $50-60 a piece and can be used in a variety of ways for shooting fashion, beauty and portrait images.

Two sided v-flats allow you to create three different looking scenarios. When used with the black side facing you, place your subject very near the front and make sure the triangle edges are right at each shoulder. This creates a strong front light with a sharp drop off in light that allows the subject to pop out from the background. This can work great for black and white portraits as well.

When the white side is behind your subject you can create a lighter backdrop and clean background much like the infinity background favoured by Steve Jobs when presenting Apple products. This is great for lively portraits and bright shining smiles.

A third option is to back-light your subject and let the background blow out, sticking the flat open on the white side at the back of the shoot.

There are several other studio designs of setting up multiple V Flats and most professional photographers would have at least a set of two white and two black reflectors.

In Australia you can get a pre-fabricated reversible v-flat and also a portable variety from or follow the link below.

Background and Scope


During World War I, the impact of the poster as a means
of communication was greater than at any other time during
history. The ability of posters to inspire, inform, and
persuade combined with vibrant design trends in many of the
participating countries to produce thousands of interesting
visual works. As a valuable historical research resource,
the posters provide multiple points of view for
understanding this global conflict. As artistic works, the
posters range in style from graphically vibrant works by
well-known designers to anonymous broadsides (predominantly

The Library of Congress Prints & Photographs
Division has extensive holdings of World War I era posters.
Available online are approximately 1,900 posters created
between 1914 and 1920. Most relate directly to the war, but
some German posters date from the post-war period and
illustrate events such as the rise of Bolshevism and
Communism, the 1919 General Assembly election and various

This collection’s international representation is among
the strongest in any public institution. (For other major
holdings, see the Related
Resources page.) The majority of the posters
were printed in the United States. Posters from Australia,
Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Italy,
the Netherlands, and Russia are included as well.
The Library acquired these posters through gift,
purchase, and exchange or transfer from other government
institutions, and continues to add to the collection.

World War I and the Role of the

World War I began as a conflict between the Alllies
(France, the United Kingdom, and Russia) and the Central
Powers (Germany and Austria-Hungary). The assassination of
Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the heir to the throne of
Austria-Hungary and his wife Sophie ignited the war in
1914. Italy joined the Allies in 1915, followed by the
United States in 1917. A ceasefire was declared at 11 AM on
November 11, 1918.

The poster was a major tool for broad dissemination of
information during the war. Countries on both sides of the
conflict distributed posters widely to garner support, urge
action, and boost morale. During World War II, a larger
quantity of posters were printed, but they were no longer
the primary source of information. By that time,
posters shared their audience with radio and film.

Even with its late entry into the war, the United States
produced more posters than any other country. Taken as a
whole, the imagery in American posters is more positive
than the relatively somber appearance of the German

Poster Themes

The posters in the Prints and Photographs Division deal
primarily with recruitment, finance, and home front issues.
Although produced in different countries, many designs use
symbols and messages that share a common purpose. (To
explore the full array of topics and symbols supplied as
index terms on individual poster descriptions, see the Subject/Format browse list.)

Enlistment and Recruitment Posters

Many posters asked men to do their duty and join the
military forces. In the early years of the war, Great
Britain issued a large number of recruitment posters. Prior
to May of 1916, when conscription was introduced, the
British army was all-volunteer. Compelling posters were an
important tool in encouraging as many mean as possible to
enlist. Four rarely seen posters printed in Jamaica and
addressed to the men of the Bahamas illustrate the point
that this war involved many parts of the world beyond the
actual battlegrounds [
view Bahamas recruitment posters].

Women, who weren’t being recruited for the
military, were also asked to do their part. They could
serve through relief organizations such as the YWCA or the
Red Cross, or through government jobs. The Women’s
Land Army was originally a British civilian organization
formed to increase agricultural production by having women
work the land for farmers who were serving in the military.
A Women’s Land Army was also assembled in the United

relief agency posters

Posters for War Bonds and Funds

In countries where conscription was the norm (France,
Germany, Austria), recruitment was not such a pressing
need, and most posters were aimed at raising money to
finance the war. Those who did not enlist were asked to do
their part by purchasing bonds or subscribing to war loans.
Many finance posters use numismatic imagery to illustrate
their point. Coins transform into bullets, crush the enemy,
or become shields in the war effort.

Posters Dealing with Food Issues

Food shortages were widespread in Europe during the war.
Even before the United States entered the war, American
relief organizations were shipping food overseas. On the
home front, it was hoped that Americans would adjust their
eating habits in such a way as to conserve food that could
then be sent abroad. Americans were told to go meatless and
wheatless and to eat more corn and fish. Americans were
also encouraged to plant victory gardens and to can fruits
and vegetables. In Great Britain, eggs were collected for
the wounded to aid in their recovery. In France, the
ComitŽ National de PrŽvoyance et
d’Economies sponsored a poster competition among
schoolchildren to design conservation posters.

National Symbols

Many of the posters rely on symbolism to illustrate
their point. Uncle Sam appears quite frequently on posters
as a symbol for the United States. On other posters, John
Bull and Britannia represent the United Kingdom, while
France is personified by Marianne. Posters produced by the
Allies often depict Germany as a caricature called a “Hun”
who was usually portrayed wearing a pickelhaube (spiked
helmet), often covered in blood.

Whistler’s mother, from the painting “Arrangement in
Grey and Black,” is used to represent all motherhood on one
Canadian poster. Men are asked to join the Irish Canadian
Rangers and “fight for her.”

The Poster Artists

Many well-known artists and illustrators contributed
their work to the war effort. Even though the British
posters were primarily the work of anonymous printers and
lithographers, established artists such as
Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956),
John Hassall (1868-1948), and
Gerald Spencer Pryse (1881-1956) designed posters as

In Germany,
Lucian Bernhard (1883-1972) produced many posters
notable for their typography.
Ludwig Hohlwein (1874-1949), who worked for most of his
life in Munich, was internationally recognized for his
integration of text and image and his brilliant use of
color. In addition to his posters for the war effort, he
designed many travel and advertising posters. Some of his
last works were posters he designed for the Nazi Party
during World War II.

Abel Faivre (1867-1945), a well-known cartoonist, and

Théophile Steinlen (1859-1923), whose cats and
Parisian scenes are some of the most recognizable images of
the Belle Époque, lent their skills to the war effort
and produced posters of considerable emotional depth.

In the U.S., the Committee on Public Information’s
Division of Pictorial Publicity urged artists to contribute
their work in support of the war effort, and hundreds of
poster designs were produced. The Division of Pictorial
Publicity accepted Joseph Pennell’s design for the Fourth
Liberty Loan Drive of 1918, for example, which showed New
York City in flames. Although the likelihood of enemy
attack was small (aircraft of the day could not cross the
Atlantic Ocean), the visual argument made for a haunting
poster printed in approximately two million copies. The
Prints & Photographs Division is fortunate to have
works that show different phases of the design process: the
watercolor sketch, a proof for the
poster, and the poster that was

Howard Chandler Christy (1873-1952) put the Christy
girl into wartime service for the Marines and the Navy, as
did other poster creators.

James Montgomery Flagg (1870-1960) designed what has
become probably the best-known war recruiting poster: “I
Want You for U.S. Army” [view poster].
Said to be a self-portrait, this most recognized of all
American posters is also one of the most imitated. Flagg
had adapted his design from Alfred
Leete’s 1914 poster of Lord Kitchener. Posters
employing a similar composition were used on both sides of
the conflict [
view examples]. The American poster was altered
slightly for use in World War II [view poster ].
Since then, this image of Uncle Sam has been modified and
parodied countless times [

90,000 PAD Allan Carrington’s Learning Wheel – Interactive Learning Planning Tool – Didactor

The taxonomy of educational goals by American Benjamin Bloom still attracts the world’s pedagogical community. Modern teachers are primarily interested in practical goal-setting: how to consistently achieve tangible learning results, including with the help of modern digital tools.

Dozens of visualized models of B.’s taxonomy have appeared on the Internet.Bloom.

Many teachers tried to take Bloom’s taxonomy as a basis and describe the tools for achieving goals.

Didactor also contributed at one time, having published an Interactive taxonomy of educational goals and objectives, in which the taxonomy of educational goals by B. Bloom was organically supplemented by the taxonomy of educational tasks by D. Tollingerova.

The Australian educator Allan Carrington’s model for planning outcomes and learning processes has attracted great interest from teachers in a number of countries.

It was already an extended model, where B. Bloom’s taxonomy was considered as one of the aspects of educational activity.

In A. Carrington’s model there are five main interconnected components (filters), depicted as gears of a single mechanism, the name of which is educational process .

  1. Graduate qualities and abilities.
  2. Motivation.
  3. Bloom’s Taxonomy.
  4. Toolkit.
  5. SAMR technology. (Read more about this technology here) .

First of all, in the Australian teacher’s model, he uses a detailed description of action verbs and activities for all educational goals, as well as a selection of digital tools for them.

Popularizing his “wheel”, A. Carrington conducted consultations, master classes and seminars in a number of countries.

Thanks to the efforts of educational blogger Olga Evstifeeva, a Russian-language version of Wheel A.Carrington.

90,000 20 films of the 2010s that changed the world – Afisha-Kino

It was a time when ceilings were high, hallways were spacious, cars were long, avenues were wide, sidewalks were uncrowded, administrative buildings were immense, and regimes were repressive. Mexico greeted 1971 in a depressed state. Like the 1980 Moscow Olympics, which kicked off in an atmosphere of Afghan events, half-boycotts and a capital purge, the Mexico 68 Olympics began with the shooting of a demonstration that took to the Square of Three Cultures with posters “We don’t want the Olympics, we want a revolution!” the corpses of old people and children were piled on garbage cans.Corrupt circles turned away from the needs of the population, spending, pocketing and laundering money with the help of the Olympic hype. Three years later, the reflections of that fire continued to blaze. The Olympic brigade, which cracked down on the demonstrators, turned into the “Hawks,” the government’s special forces, which continued to shoot at the students.

Mexico that shunned politics hid into private life, accompanied by heartbreaking love songs on the radio, and into hangar cinemas that showed films on ultra-wide 70mm film, twice the width of the standard 35mm, which requires concave 25 -meter screens from floor to ceiling and the entire wall.As is often the case with a regime country, Mexico in the early 70s suffered from gigantomania. 70mm wide-screen cinema is one of its hallmarks, as are administrative buildings the size of an Aztec temple, as well as avenues as wide as the Volga for the rare cars of a few rich people. Their films were shot, and foreign ones were printed on 70 mm on an industrial scale in the countries of General Franco and Secretary General Brezhnev. But Mexico overtook them in terms of the volume of enlarged 70-mm copies. Mexico even saw Solaris as a widescreen – as it was not seen at home in the USSR, and nowhere else.

Alfonso Cuarón’s new film “Roma” was commissioned by Netflix and is mainly distributed through it. The small circulation that is shown at film festivals and in large cities is printed on 70 mm film. This is another tribute to the time that Cuarón recreated in his film through a very private story, closed within a separate family and the walls of her home, as was customary in Mexican songs and films of those years. In the center, he placed an uneducated servant – an ideal subject whom state propaganda stuffs with the sweet poison of the private life of heroes of melodramas and songs when he does not want to share bread with her.Also, a servant is an obligatory character in this kind of series, a resonator, through whose monologues the hidden life of the house is revealed, points of tension that the owners avoid in conversations. Cuarón dedicated the film to a girl who served in their home when he was a schoolboy. How rarely do we remember those who just made sure that we were fed and dressed. Moreover, we devote films to them. But when someone realizes how much these people have done for them, it goes on for centuries: “Let’s drink, nanny, where is the mug?”

Another deeply symbolic gesture – having undertaken the restoration of his childhood, which is usual for great authors, he placed his reference retro film in the year when cinema was born: 1971 is the release date of Peter Bogdanovich’s “The Last Picture Show”, just like Cuaron’s “Roma” , a black-and-white film from the days of the director’s adolescence, which began the era of retro.Today you will not surprise anyone with retro. Today’s cinema succumbs to the too complex and rapidly changing today and hides in the past. Every year, three quarters of the Oscar nominees make films about the past – even if it is at least 15 years distant from us. So this year. But Cuarona’s retro is special.

This is a great movie. Carefully resurrecting the past, he achieves what all art is drawn to, like a flower to the sun – creates a feeling of time flowing through space. A feeling available to everyone if he stops and just listens to life – but more often than not, we do not have time for this.Then they turn off the lights and start a movie. In order to forcibly return to us that experience, which, in fact, by the nature of things and by the world order, was released to us as an every second impression by means of the “time spent on culture” that we understand.

From songs and films, brochures and cars, short skirts and long presidential speeches, Cuarón connects moments that could not have happened otherwise. Unlike other retro films, we are not touched by forgotten melodies – we comprehend the truth that every event, every moment is encoded by a million things, from a political action to a cloud frozen in the sky.And they happen in their only possible way.

It is difficult to cry with Jose Jose when he sings his “Espera‘ peace, mind pokito mas, me moririya si te vas! ” (“Stay a little, well, a little more: I will die if you leave!”), If near the radio, from where he bawls, the maids put out the light and light a candle so that the hostess does not deduct from them for the waste of electricity. It is difficult to laugh and rejoice with Louis de Funes and Bourville when they cross the border of the fascist possessions in France by air, if, under their grimaces on the screen, the guy leaves the hall, forever throwing a helpless pregnant girlfriend among the laughing crowd.And yet José José sings and de Funes laughs. If one did not sing so angrily, and the other did not grimace so harshly, who knows – maybe people would pay more attention to the feelings of this poor girl, a turkey servant. And in the same way – who knows, if Jose Jose and de Funes had not bewitched the world around with their emotions – would she have found the strength to live on, despite the blows of fate? Because, as it always happens, when in bad times we still did not despair and did not lay hands on ourselves, one day, as in the final, the main character of Roma, we catch ourselves doing a completely ordinary thing like hanging clothes in the middle of a perfect day , woven from children’s laughter and the shadow of a vine, and we understand how much we would have lost if we had not resisted then here, in this life.

We say almost nothing about the event outline of the film. There is almost nothing to tell. Even if the servants and owners from “Roma” turned out to be the characters of a Mexican TV series, the authors of which are masters of pulling rubber, with such a plot map they would hardly last longer than three episodes. Cuarón needs two hours of screen time to expose each of the points of this poor canvas in the fullness of the moment he is experiencing. As a cinematographer and film editor, Cuarón encourages rains on the windshield and hailstones on the patio, garlands in the seaside boarding house and nightlights in the maternity ward to add notes to the score of a very concrete memory.He needs it in all its specifics – a person who has decided to resurrect his childhood. Otherwise, the resurrection will not work. The miracle is that if you do something corrosive, painstakingly and be armed with such a very personal and vital task, when solving your particular question, you decide for everyone the main question of being.

Resurrecting a fragment of the past life ordered by his fantasy together with Indian maids, Cuarón resurrects the magic of every moment, which becomes audible when the moment is listened to.Because no matter how different our fates may be, if you convey their essence, then it is one for everyone, always one and always magical: the only final reality is elusive, a split second – and the reality is not the same, new. Catching it through the lens, perpetuating it on film is the ultimate dream, the goal of cinema. Probably, Cuarón decided to end his film instead of the title “The End” with the title “Shanti Shanti Shanti”, when, having examined the result to the end, he felt like the hero of an old well-known book that was thrown into the bedside tables of hotels, thereby creating light and seeing that he’s good.Who will blame him for this? I had full reasons.

And if you compare the film with something from the objective world, then a swing comes to mind, empty, abandoned, but still creaking swing, which everyone happened to stumble upon on a sultry afternoon on the playground, empty on the occasion of a quiet hour. The boys who rocked them have long since disappeared – he jumped off them many years ago, grew up and, probably, forgot them a long time ago. But the swings themselves remember and keep in their monotonous creaking the day when the boy made this sound out of them, swinging at them and calmly looking somewhere beyond the horizon, where caravans of films that have not yet been filmed are wandering in a quick but inevitable meeting with the present and treasures await prizes not yet awarded, and no, he does not dream, does not even believe, but simply knows, knows with all his serene boyish being that when the caravans arrive in today, he will receive all this – and heaven to boot!

90,000 Astronomers first image a black hole

eso1907ru – Scientific release

90,084 ESO, ALMA and APEX participated in a landmark observation in the history of astronomy of a giant black hole in the center of Messier 87

April 10, 2019, St.-Petersburg

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) – a planetary-scale antenna array of eight ground-based radio telescopes combined in an international collaboration – was created to image black holes. Today, at coordinated press conferences around the world, EHT researchers present their findings: the first direct visual image of a supermassive black hole and its shadow.

This revolutionary result was presented today in a series of six articles published in special issue The Astrophysical Journal Letters .An image has been taken of a black hole at the center of Messier 87 [1], a massive galaxy in the nearby Virgo cluster of galaxies. This black hole with a mass of 6.5 billion solar masses is located at a distance of 55 million light years from us [2].

The EHT Array combines radio telescopes located at different points of the Earth into a single whole, forming a unique virtual telescope the size of a globe [3]. EHT opens up a new way for scientists to study the most unusual objects in the Universe predicted by Einstein’s theory of general relativity.And this happens in the year of the centenary of the historical experiment, which first confirmed this theory [4].

We got the first snapshot of black hole ,” said EHT project leader Sheperd S. Doeleman of the Harvard Smithsonian Astrophysical Center. “ This is a scientific achievement of utmost importance and has crowned the efforts of a team of more than 200 researchers “.

Black holes are unusual space objects with gigantic masses and extremely compact dimensions.These objects have a very strong effect on their surroundings, deforming space-time and heating the surrounding matter to extreme temperatures.

When a black hole is immersed in a bright disk of glowing gas, a dark region resembling a shadow should form there. This phenomenon, predicted by Einstein’s theory of general relativity, has never been observed before ,” explains Heino Falcke, head of the EHT Science Council. ) from Redbud University in the Netherlands.” This” shadow “, formed due to the gravitational curvature of light and its capture by the event horizon, says a lot about the nature of these amazing objects. It was she who allowed us to measure the giant mass of the black hole at M 87.

A variety of calibration and imaging techniques have identified a ring-shaped structure with a dark central region – the black hole ‘shadow’ – that has been reproduced in numerous independent EHT observations.

When we were confident that we had indeed captured a shadow image, we compared our results to a vast collection of computer models reflecting the physical features of curved space, ultra-high temperature matter and strong magnetic fields. Many properties of the resulting image are surprisingly good our theoretical understanding is , ”notes Paul TP Ho, member of the EHT Scientific Committee, director of the East Asian Observatory [5].“E then gives us confidence in the correct interpretation of our observations, including our estimates of the mass of the black hole .”

The mismatch between thorium and observation is always a dramatic moment for the theorist. It was a great relief and a source of pride to realize that this time the observations fit your predictions so well ,” adds EHT Scientific Committee member Luciano Rezzolla from the university Goethe in Germany.

The creation of the EHT was a technical task of the greatest complexity, the solution of which required the creation and debugging of a worldwide network of eight already existing radio telescopes installed in hard-to-reach highlands: on the tops of volcanoes in the Hawaiian Islands and in Mexico, in the Arizona mountains in the USA and the Sierra Nevada in Spain, in the Chilean high-mountainous Atacama desert and in Antarctica.

The EHT observations were based on the very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) technique, which assumes synchronization of all telescopes of the worldwide network and uses the rotation of our planet to form a single giant global telescope operating at a wavelength of 1.3 mm. The VLBI method allowed the EHT to achieve an angular resolution of 20 microseconds of arc, which corresponds to the ability to read a New York newspaper from a Parisian cafe [6].

An outstanding result was obtained with an array consisting of the following telescopes: ALMA, APEX, 30-meter IRAM telescope, James Clerk Maxwell telescope, Alfonso Serrano Large Millimeter Telescope, Submillimeter Array, Submillimeter Telescope and South Pole Telescope [7].The petabytes of observational data obtained by these telescopes were summarized by highly specialized supercomputers installed at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy and Haystack Observatory (MIT).

In this global cooperation, the most important role was played by European equipment and funding: the use of modern European telescopes and support from the European Research Council — in particular, a grant of € 14 million to the BlackHoleCam project [8].Support from ESO, IRAM and the Max Planck Society also played a key role. “ This result is based on decades of European research in millimeter wave astronomy ,” comments Karl Schuster, IRAM Director and Member of the EHT Committee.

The creation of the EHT and the observations shown today are the culmination of decades of observational, technical and theoretical work. This is an example of global cooperation that required close collaboration of researchers from all over the world.It took the combined efforts of thirteen partner institutions and the support of many agencies to build an EHT out of pre-existing infrastructures. Major funding was provided by the US National Research Foundation (NSF), the EU’s European Research Council (ERC) and East Asian financial institutions.

ESO is proud of its significant contribution to this result: this contribution is due to the leading position of ESO in European science and the fact that ESO owns two grid components EHT located in Chile – ALMA and APEX , ”says ESO CEO Xavier Barcons.“ ALMA – the most sensitive element EHT and its 66 high-precision antennas were key to the success of EHT ”.

We have achieved a result that a generation ago was considered unattainable ” – concludes Dalimen. “ The combination of breakthrough technologies, the cooperation of the world’s largest radio astronomy observatories and new algorithms has led to the opening of a completely new observation window that allows you to study black holes and the event horizon.


[1] The shadow of a black hole is the closest possible approximation to the image of the black hole itself, a completely dark object that does not release light from itself. The boundary of a black hole – the “event horizon” (this term EHT owes its name) is about 2.5 times smaller than the shadow it casts, and in this case is slightly less than 40 billion kilometers across.

[2] Supermassive black holes are comparatively small astronomical objects — which until now made their direct observation impossible.Since the size of the event horizon of a black hole is proportional to its mass, the more massive the black hole, the larger its shadow. Due to its enormous mass and relative proximity to Earth, the black hole at the center of the galaxy M87, as predicted, is one of the largest in terms of angular size for the terrestrial observer, which made it an ideal target for the EHT.

[3] Although the lattice telescopes are not physically connected to each other, the observational data they receive can be precisely synchronized using atomic clocks — hydrogen masers.During the 2017 global observation campaign, such synchronous observations were performed at a wavelength of 1.3 mm. Each EHT telescope received an enormous amount of data during the campaign: 350 terabytes per day. This data was written to high-performance hard disks filled with helium and then sent to highly specialized supercomputers — so-called correlators — at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy and Haystack Observatory (MIT) for summation. These data, after the most complex processing procedures using the latest computational methods developed by the collaborators, were converted into images.

[4] 100 years ago, two expeditions were sent to Principe Island off the African coast and to Sobral in Brazil to observe the solar eclipse of 1919 and to test the general theory of relativity on the basis of these observations: will the light of the stars bend around the solar limb, as Einstein predicted. A hundred years later, members of the EHT team traveled to some of the world’s highest and most isolated radio telescopes to test once again our understanding of the laws of gravity.

[5] The East Asia Observatory (EAO), a partner of the EHT project, is active in many regions of Asia, including China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, India and Indonesia.

[6] Future EHT observations will be made with significantly higher sensitivity: IRAM NOEMA, Greenland Telescope and Kitt Peak Telescope will join the network.

[7] ALMA is a partnership between the European Southern Observatory (ESO), the US National Research Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Natural Sciences (NINS) of Japan, with the participation of the National Research Council (Canada), Ministry of Science and Technology ( MOST) Taiwan, the Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics Academia Sinica (ASIAA) of Taiwan and the Korea Astronomy and Space Research Institute (KASI) of the Republic of Korea, in cooperation with the Republic of Chile.APEX is operated by ESO, 30m telescope is owned by IRAM (IRAM partners are MPG in Germany, CNRS in France and IGN in Spain), James Clerk Maxwell telescope is operated by EAO, Alfonso Serrano Large Millimeter Telescope – INAOE and UMass, Submillimeter Array – SAO and ASIAA, Submillimeter Telescope – Arizona Radio Astronomy Observatory (ARO). The South Pole telescope is owned by the University of Chicago; specialized equipment for the EHT was provided by the University of Arizona.

[8] BlackHoleCam is an EU funded project aimed at imaging, measuring and understanding astrophysical black holes. The main goal of BlackHoleCam and the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) is to capture the first-ever images of a billion-solar-mass black hole in nearby galaxy M87 and the less massive object Sagittarius A *, a supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way, our Galaxy. These observations allow highly accurate determination of space-time distortions caused by a black hole.

90,000 Australia Traffic Signs – Debian Notes

On April 1, I decided not to petrosyan about Linux anymore, but to give out something else. Since I was carried into a decent wilderness, I’ll write about it. And if you think that insanity happens only in the countries of Northern Eurasia – no, friends, insanity also blooms outside the Russian border post.True, in our area it has its own national characteristics, which, however, does not get easier. Since the topic is vast, I will only write about roads and road signs.

Eh, the roads …
I must say that the roads in Australia are pretty good. Especially after the Moscow region, it’s so easy to almost autobahns. Australians are generally very fond of really wide roads, so that you can park easily, and there is still room for a couple of trucks. So, once in some Muhosransk city, do not be surprised at the sight of wide, three-lane roads in some small village.

Street names also make you smile broadly from time to time. For example, I often ride the Pacific Highway – this is a road that runs throughout New South Wales and is connected to Freeway 1 – this is a highway around the entire continent. And in some village there is Pacific Drive. A huge highway is drawn in my mind’s eye, but in reality it is just a street with three houses, ending in a dead end …

There are local specifics here: many cities and streets are called with words in the language of the aborigines, unusual to the ear and strange in spelling.Here you have Curry-curry, and Waga-Waga, and Wollongong with, sorry, Yeleibana. My favorite in this business is the city of Woolloomoolloo.

Some names smell like the smoke of the Fatherland. The village of Kuznetsy (the same in Pavlovsky Posad, not far from the dacha), Youth street,

There is also a bunch of borrowings from other countries. Recently I was in Toronto – it is much closer to the Canadian one. You can get there by bike. On the way passed Cardiff, and on the other road you can easily look into Oxford.

Traffic signs
Local authorities simply adore all sorts of prohibitive signs, non-alcoholic zones and, in general, restrictions of all stripes. As they are called here, control freaks. Typical example:

That is, absolutely everything is forbidden. You can’t even drink beer. Speaking of beer, it is a national drink here, but you can only drink it in bars. You can drink in the bar, but you can’t smoke there – the law. That is, you come to a bar, drank beer, wanted to smoke – get out of the bar onto the street. Having smoked – again in the bar 🙂

In the parks you can’t drink either:
Especially the bottom postscript delivers: alcohol consumption is prohibited without the written permission of the consul (this is like the mayor of the city).That is, you should make an appointment with the consul ahead of time and at the meeting give something like: “You know, consul, I want to drink something …” speed of 34 km / h? And these are the consequences of thoughtless conversion from miles to kilometers (Australia switched from the Imperial system to the Metric system in the 70s).

Perhaps the most recognizable sign is this one:
Yes, that’s right, because Down Under:

In fact, this is pretty serious: kangaroos are large animals, and often jump out on the highway.Modern cars with an abundance of plastic will not please a collision with this beast. Or here’s another:
This one from Northen Territory is still in bloom. Our Northern Territories generally burn better than the Brazilians: this is the habitat of the most inveterate scumbags. Few people want to live in the eerie tropics, with enormous humidity and terrain inhabited by crocodiles, sharks, snakes and other poisonous creatures of all stripes.

To give you a rough idea of ​​the degree of frostbite northerners, here are a few stories just for the past 2010.

Looshaad! translate? Js = n & prev = _t & hl = en & ie = UTF-8 & layout = 2 & eotf = 1 & sl = auto & tl = ru & u = http% 3A% 2F% 2Fwww. 2Farticle% 2F2011% 2F01% 2F04% 2F204801_ ntnews.html

[Original in Australian English]

local tavern Hampi-Duu. On New Year’s Eve, the pub is naturally full of thirsty people.Not wanting to wait, the jockey decided to drive into the pub directly on his horse, so that he could hurry. Dressed only in shorts and slippers (local national dress), on a faithful horse, the jockey quickly squeezed into the counter, amid the general surprise and hysteria of those present. The maneuver was a success and made it into the local news. The article also lights up: “there was a sign in front of the door that it is forbidden to enter the pub with dogs, but he is like on a horse – nothing is said about horses, so it seems like he has the right to do it.”

Crocodiles in the Northern Territories are the same common occurrence as, say, stray dogs in Moscow.For example: translate? Js = n & prev = _t & hl = en & ie = UTF-8 & layout = 2 & eotf = 1 & sl = auto & tl = ru & u = http% 3A% 2F% 2Fwww. 2Farticle% 2F2010% 2F11% 2F19% 2F195181_ ntnews.html

[Original in Australian English]

Non-machine translation, of course it is written. But the idea is this: two drunk Australian bodies, after swimming in a local pond, found a crocodile there.So that he would not bite anyone, the two of them caught him (!), Tied him up, and, throwing their Toyota overboard, brought him home, since it is difficult to hand over a crocodile to the zoo at 1 am. The police found him in the morning and, together with the veterinarians, five of us (the carcass is 3.2 meters) barely loaded it for transportation. Queensland, traditionally frostbitten, is just a dull swamp against this background 🙂

Grammar Nazis cry and weep inconsolably
The people here are not very puzzled with simple and literacy:
Grammar Nazis are simply crying from this sign.Errors on signs are common, especially in some Flyshittowns:
In general, in English the maneuver “as you hear it, it is written” usually does not work, and if it does, it leads to such incidents. And not only in some provinces:
This is a sign at Curtin University – a highly respected University with a strong engineering school. But on these Internet, just an Epic Refusal was found:

Well, it happens, and on grammarnatsi it finds clouding. Among other things, here they take care of simple Joe Blow in the form:
And the like:
In general, there is such a fashion here: local authorities receive a budget that needs to be spent.If this is not done in time, then either the roads are repaired in shock order, or signs are put up. It turns out very fun: some places on the roads are hung with signs, like New Year trees – it reaches 7-9 signs in a row.

Entertaining geography
Speaking of Mukhosransk – they are here. As mentioned above, many cities and places are named in the Aboriginal language: Curry-Curry, Waga-Waga, Wullumullu and other Wollongongs. So, the analogue of Muhosransk in Australia is Woop-Woop or OneHorse-Town.It is usually located somewhere in the central part of the country, where there are deserts and there is nothing remarkable except for cacti:
This is, if I’m not mistaken, the USA, but the idea is generally the same. Or here’s another example:

In general, such a Dry Humor is very characteristic of Australians. Including over vast distances that represent inhospitable deserts:
This is, apparently, again the Northern Territories, which are inhabited only along the only Stuart Highway connecting the northern and southern parts of the country.

So do not think that everything is perfect across the sea: there is enough insanity everywhere. Hope this collection of funny signs will cheer you up on this day of humor.

Samara Rowing Marathon 2020 date 29.08.2020

The next annual Samara rowing marathon took place this weekend. Sergey Starikov participated in the race from the team.

A total of 140 people, kayakers, canoeists and sappers took part in the competition.The distances for SUP were 8 and 16 km, and for boats 26 and 40 km.

The growth of participants in the SAP category is noted from year to year, and if three years ago the number of athletes in this category was about 5 people, then this year about 50 fans of the paddle board went to the start.

In addition to the Samara athletes, the race was attended by participants from Yekaterinburg, Ryazan, Saratov, Moscow and other cities.

The starting camp is located on the opposite side of the Volga River, i.e.That is, everyone swims to the start. A certain care of the organizers about the participants, so that everyone goes to the race already warmed up. The dissatisfied were not noticed, where the start is scheduled, and we get there.

On the other side there is a tent city, organizers and participants of the race. We quickly register, get start numbers, commemorative badges and start preparing for the race.

Pre-launch briefing and participants line up at the starting line. About 10 participants came to the start of the long SUP distance, almost all of them on hard boards and of course, this added intrigue.Exactly at 11-00, the chief judge starts the race.

The general start, in the company of kayakers, is a separate pleasure. On the first 200 meters, there were leaders in the SUP category, and the top five approached the first buoy, at the 4th km distance, with a fairly large margin. Among them are participants in the Zavidovo SUP Challenge race – Sergey Sinelnik from Saratov, Ilya Karyukhin from Ryazan and local Samara rowers.

The distance in the SUP category ran along the coastline, crossing one channel with a width of about 500 meters.Weekend traffic on the Volga is quite decent and the speed of the participants at this stage has noticeably increased. I would like to note the work of the organizers, a rescue boat was on duty at the site and controlled this location. All SUP riders walked about 4 km, then went around the buoy and returned to the start. Participants in the SUP sport category had to go through 2 laps.

The weather during the race was changeable, but quite comfortable. There was sun and wind and rain, but in general, this did not affect the outcome of the race.

The water during the race was almost calm, even for flat fans from Moscow. Periodically, small waves came from boats and chop, which rose due to the wind. We felt all the delights of the local reservoir the next day, in the company of local SAPers, pretty much swimming in the Volga.

The leaders went through almost the entire race in the same composition, periodically changing places. On the last loop, the champion of recent years, Valentin Kurchatkin, goes into the lead and again takes first place.

Instead of the referee’s whistle, for each participant who passed the distance, a bell was ringing from the shore, in which children cheerfully rang and the shouts of fans who supported the athletes.

Prizewinners for men in the SUP sport category, at a distance of 16 km

1. Kurchatkin Valentin (Samara, board – JP Australia All water 14 × 25.5)
2. Chugurov Evgeniy (Chapaevsk, board – Gladiator Elite 14 ‘)
3. Karyukhin Ilya (Ryazan, board – Red Paddle Elite 14’x25)

Among women:

1.Chupakhina Tatiana (Samara, board – Shark 12’6)
2. Witte Ekaterina (Samara, board – Aquamarina 14 ‘)
3. Belova Galina

Winners in the SUP category at a distance of 8 km, men: 90 233

1. Brekhov Alexander
2. Bekishev Vladimir
3. Sergey Logvinov

Among women:

1. Gerasimova Alena
2. Tsvetkova Svetlana
3. Morozova Maria

Each participant who reached the finish line received a commemorative diploma and, of course, an unforgettable experience from the race, because for someone it was the first experience, but for someone another person.

Throughout the event, the atmosphere was friendly and welcoming, and this is the main indicator of a successful event.

Due to the increase in the number of participants in the SUP category, the organizers promised to add a sup-surfer to the race logo and, in addition to the marathon, hold a technical race. Is this not a reason to return to Samara in 2021.

In general, I really liked the organization, atmosphere and level of the event participants.Thanks for the race!

We invite all Samara SUP riders to the Zavidovo SUP Challenge race. All Aloha! See you on the water!
