Black Holes Aren’t Black After All, Say Theoretical Physicists
Collapsed stars are just too big to trap light forever
Black holes are a crucial part of the great cultural legacy of Einstein’s theory of general relativity. They have fascinated scientists and laypeople alike since they entered the public consciousness in the latter half of the 20th century.
But it may be time to say goodbye to the notion of regions of space so dense that even light becomes trapped within them. In the last year or so, an intense debate about the paradoxical properties of black holes has left a number of theoretical physicists, including Stephen Hawking, suggesting that black holes might not exist at all, at least not in the form that anyone had imagined.

World’s largest earthquake damper

A tuned mass damper, also known as a harmonic absorber, is a device mounted in structures to reduce the amplitude of mechanical vibrations. Their application can prevent discomfort, damage, or outright structural failure. They are frequently used in power transmission, automobiles, and buildings.(source:Wikipedia)

This 728 tons steel pendulum is installed in one of the world’s tallest buildings, the taipei 101 in Taiwan. It helps stabilize the building in case of strong winds and earthquakes, through simple mechanics, when the building moves in a direction it swings in the opposite direction reducing movement by 40%. You can understand how it works by looking at the small GIF image.

It cost $4 million to install the huge damper in the skyscraper but architects and engineers said it had to be done. It spans across 4 of the building’s stories and it was assembled on site because it couldn’t be lifted by a crane, due to its enormous weight.

Here’s a video of the damper in action, on May 12th,2008, when a horrific earthquake hit one of China’s provinces and the tremors reached as gar as Taipei. As the building started to shake, people ran towards the center to see the damper in action, it did it’s job.

"ところで最近は幼い女の子を監禁した上で「自分の理想の女性に育て、いずれは結婚しようと思った」という男性が話題だけど、これがいたいけな社畜を深夜まで会社に監禁した上で「自分の理想の社員に育て、いずれは幹部にしようと思った」というのと酷似してる事に気づき、若干身の危険を感じてきた。"

"壊れてから直そうとしないで下さい。
もう直りませんから。
普段からメンテナンスすることが大事なんです。
恋人と破局寸前までいってから、謝っても遅いです。
反省しても遅いです。
泣きついても意味がありません。
部下が鬱になってから、不満を聞いても遅いです。
改善案を出しても遅いです。
心配しても意味がありません。
日々良い関係を維持すること以上に大切なことはありません。
壊れたものは直らないんで。"
