Sailing Uma - Our Boat

https://www.sailinguma.com/our-boat

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

They say a journey of a thousand miles, begins with a single step. For us, rather than a step, our journey began with a leap. We sold everything we didn’t need, cars, computers, motorcycles, furniture — everything. What we couldn’t sell, we donated and we used the money to buy a sailboat. Our boat “Uma” is a 1972 Pearson 36. She is neither fancy and expensive, nor cheap and flimsy—to us, she is perfect. We wanted a name that carried with it the motivation and rational that led us to buy her in the first place. Her name was inspired by the Portuguese number 1 (uma), meaning first or primary. She is our first step

Electric Boats, In General

http://www.growleymonster.com/eboat/eboatsgeneral.html

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

Have you just bought an old sailboat with a dead or dying engine? You might have a boat worth less than a third of what a new diesel would cost, and you don't want to buy a used engine and inherit someone else's cast-off problems. Or maybe you are tired of smelling fuel, buying fuel, spilling fuel, running out of fuel, or hearing a smoke belching valve clattering clankasaurus hard at work, or crossing your fingers and hoping it will start when you actually need it. There are a lot of reasons to repower with electric drive. Electric is not for everyone. It has a lot of cons to balance out the obvious pros. But one con that is widely diseminated by self proclaimed experts is that it is expensive, and that is not necessarily the case at all. It is quite possible to replace that cranktankerous old infernal combustion engine very cheaply indeed. I did it, for less than $2500. I didn't know it at the time, but I could have spent even less.

How to Keep Polished Brass From Tarnishing - Hunker.com - By Brenda Priddy

https://www.hunker.com/13419830/how-to-keep-polished-brass-from-tarnishing

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

Brass will automatically start to tarnish if exposed to oxygen. The only way to prevent polished brass from tarnishing is to coat it with a layer of clear sealer that will prevent air from reaching the brass itself. Many brass surfaces come with this finish originally, but it can wear down over time. Refresh the coating every few years to keep the brass shiny and like-new without frequent polishing. A clear polyurethane sealer will protect the brass from oxygen exposure without causing discoloration.

How TF-IDF algorithm determines keyword importance - arbitrue Blog

https://www.arbitrue.com/blog/tf-idf-algorithm-for-keyword-importance/

Saved by uncleflo on December 23rd, 2018.

There are many tools in the developer’s toolbox when it comes to automatic data extraction. A good example is TF-IDF algorithm (Term Frequency – Inverse Document Frequency) which helps the system understand the importance of keywords extracted using OCR. Here’s how TF-IDF can be used for invoice and receipt recognition. In this article we focus on other techniques in order to make this text file “understandable” to a computer. For this purpose, we must delve into the world of NLP or Natural Language Processing. We will focus mainly on how we can transform our file of raw text into a format that will easily be understandable by our algorithm. In a nutshell, TF-IDF is a technique for understanding how important a word is in a document which is often used as a weighting factor for numerous use cases. TF-IDF takes under consideration how frequent a word appears in a single document in relation to how frequent that word is in general. Search engines can use TF-IDF to determine which results are the most relevant for a search query.

I realise when I first released this post, it was January, a time of year that not everyone is throwing themselves into water without a wetsuit. A lot of you have been asking about sustainable swimwear options again over the past month with this never-ending heatwave we are having, so I thought I’d update and repost this guide. With environmental issues becoming much more prominent in the mainstream media, a quick google into the textiles and fashion industries will provide you with endless reasons to choose slow fashion. If you didn't follow Fashion Revolution and the #whomademyclothes movement go and check it out, alongside the documentary The True Cost. The price is often more because these companies pay workers a fair living wage, and source sustainably grown and produced materials. I've been trying to buy everything I wear consciously and not fall into the consumerism trap too often (although I'm occasionally slip up and find myself on the high street, damn those glittery topshop dinosaur socks).

Can You Fly Drones In London?

Saved by uncleflo on December 20th, 2018.

Drones are big business, and thousands of you would have received your very own for Christmas this year. The plummeting cost of components and the ease of buying remote controlled aircraft off the Internet has skyrocketed the use of consumer drones across the globe. Headlines are made every day, whether that’s new drones at CES, drones almost hitting passenger jets, or drones spying on unassuming victims. The CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) has already prosecuted two drone operators in the UK for breaching safety regulations, with numerous other investigations ongoing. In October, a man was arrested for operating a drone over Manchester City’s football stadium in a match with Tottenham Hotspur.

Mike Curtis over at hdforindies.com recently posted a brilliant rant/advice list called 10 Things Not To Do, detailing his "don't" list for indie/digital filmmakers. Inspired by this, I have attempted to concoct my own finger-wagging list for the audio sound of things, for filmmakers as well as other producers, directors and DP's. (Edit: I'll preface this by stating this is mainly based on my professional experience, the majority of which has been shorts, both DV and S16; indie DV and HD features; corporate and industrials; documentaries and some reality TV. Additionally, much of what I've come up with is echoed to an extent in The Letter, which you should already have framed on your wall:)

Different Types of Chairs For Your Living Room!

https://gharpedia.com/types-of-chairs-in-living-room/

Saved by uncleflo on November 29th, 2018.

Merriam Webster dictionary defines ‘chairs’ as a seat typically having the legs and a back for one person. It’s interesting that following this simple definition we have around us so many variations of this basic type of furniture. There are different types of chairs that you must know before you plan for your home furniture. For every activity that we do while sitting our comfortable postures needed are different and so the types of chairs, we need for the same should also be differently designed! For instance, a dining chair cannot be used for relaxing and vice versa. It is for the same reason that, more than colour and material it is the usage which makes one chair different from another.

Fundamentals of Restoration Projects

http://www.docksidereports.com/fundamentals_of_restoration_proj.htm

Saved by uncleflo on November 29th, 2018.

During my three decades as a marine surveyor, I've always been amazed about two aspects of restoring old boats what, in the marine trade, is known as a refit. First is that the people who can best afford to do them, usually don't. Followed by those who can't afford such projects are usually the ones that attempt them. Such projects usually go wrong because the owner failed to appreciate the costs, and to estimate them in advance. There are no good deals on fixer uppers with boats. There is just expensive and more expensive. Money is the name of the game, and if you haven't got it, then it's a mistake to think that you can do a refit on the cheap.

Wireless Tethered Shooting With Your Canon DSLR Via Wi-Fi

Saved by uncleflo on November 29th, 2018.

If you have followed my blog over the past few years, you may have read some of the articles I wrote on the subject of tethered shooting with your Canon DSLR together with either a tablet or smartphone. I love tethered shooting with portable devices, mainly because they are small and easy to carry around, I can trigger the camera remotely and I can see a larger review image on the remote screen afterwards. In fact, my most widely read blog post is one I wrote in November 2013 titled Tethered Shooting With Your Canon DSLR And Android Tablet. But since then, a lot has changed. Many of the newer Canon DSLR bodies now offer Wi-Fi, such as the Canon 6D, 80D, 70D, 1DX Mark II (via the Canon WFT-E8 adapter), all versions of the Rebel T6, and the 7D Mark II (via a recently released Canon W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter). But best of all, the newest Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, which was just released last month, is Canon’s first high-end, full frame DSLR to have full Wi-Fi built in. So an updated post on this subject was needed.

Is making clothing in the UK really more expensive?

https://makeitbritish.co.uk/clothing/making-clothing-uk-really-expensive/

Saved by uncleflo on November 28th, 2018.

There is a myth that making clothing in the UK is much more expensive than manufacturing overseas. We’d like to dispel that myth and show you why that’s not the case, even on simple products such as T-shirts. Let’s first start by looking at all of the different costs associated with making a good quality, branded T-shirt that retails for £25. The average manufacturing cost for that T-shirt in the Far East, making a small quantity of a few hundred pieces, is around £4.24*. That price includes the fabric, cutting and stitching of the garment, labelling, pressing and packing, and the factory overhead and margin. The same T-shirt made in the UK is around £8.85. It’s seems like it’s more than double, but hear us out! When clothing is made overseas there are several other costs that need to be taken into account before that product is ready to hit the shop floor. Shipping and duty can be as much as £1.75 on a simple T-shirt, depending on the size of the order. And if the brand is buying through an agent they will take their cut too. So now you get to a more likely cost of £7 for the Far Eastern-made T-shirt, compared to the £8.85 for the British one. But it doesn’t stop there. Retailers traditionally work on a profit margin of around 60% on a branded item when they sell it in their stores. A simple way to work that out is roughly double the wholesale cost plus VAT. The problem is that retailers have to take into account the fact that not all of the product that they buy sells at full price.

Nandini Jammi - October 10, 2014 Seth Godin issued a challenge in his blog recently as he questioned how businesses are still collecting user feedback. “If you live in the US, you might try calling 800-398-0242. That’s the number Fedex Print lists on all their receipts, hoping for customer feedback. It’s hard to imagine a happy customer working her way through all of these menus and buttons and clicks, and harder still to imagine an annoyed customer being happy to do all of this data processing for them. The alternative is pretty simple: if you’re about to lose a $10,000 customer, put the cell phone number of the regional manager on the receipt. That’s what you and I would do if we owned the place, wouldn’t we?”

Best Cruising Catamaran

Saved by uncleflo on September 14th, 2018.

Another category that showcased great diversity in design and execution was the cruising cats. The HH 55 from China unanimously claimed the prize. In this unusual Boat of the Year fleet, the Best Cruising Catamaran class was yet another category made up of three boats that were very different in terms of size and execution: the 38-foot Maine Cat 38, the 47-foot Fountaine Pajot Saona 47 and the 55-foot HH 55. All three addressed their respective stated purposes very well, once again leaving the judges a challenging task in sorting out a winner. “We’ve got small, medium and large in this class,” said Bill Bolin. Starting with the smallest of the three, the Maine Cat 38 was, according to its entry form, “a performance cruising multihull designed to be fast, comfortable and easy to singlehand from a central weather-protected helm with excellent 360-degree visibility.” Built of thermoformed Corecell-infused polyester resin, it was one of the highest of high-tech boats in the entire contest.

Review of Catamaran Designers

http://www.time-for-a-catamaran-adventure.com/review-of-catamaran-designers/

Saved by uncleflo on September 14th, 2018.

If you have carefully reviewed our “9 Essential Features for the Cruising Catamaran” you are now armed with the things to look for in a catamaran design. Our evaluation of the designers and their designs is from the point of view of the home builder. This means we are looking at the boats that can be readily built by an individual or husband/wife team. As Richard Woods says in his literature, “Boats of over 40 feet should not be built by the solo home builder because they just take too long. Life is too short,” and I would agree. The boatyards and backyards of the world are littered with uncompleted boats which have simply overwhelmed their builders. The comments that follow may be a little candid but they are based on our boat- building experience. All the boats described below, if built properly, are ocean-going boats. Our ratings of these designers are not an evaluation on whether their designs are good or bad, but more on their suitability for you building the design as a solo home builder. Some of their larger designs may also be good projects only if you are going to have the boat custom built for you or if you have hired help assisting you in your project.

Data Warehousing Summary Tables

Saved by uncleflo on June 27th, 2018.

This document discusses the creation and maintenance of "Summary Tables". It is a companion to the document on Data Warehousing Techniques. The basic terminology ("Fact Table", "Normalization", etc) is covered in that document. Summary tables are a performance necessity for large tables. MariaDB and MySQL do not provide any automated way to create such, so I am providing techniques here. (Other vendors provide something similar with "materialized views".) When you have millions or billions of rows, it takes a long time to summarize the data to present counts, totals, averages, etc, in a size that is readily digestible by humans. By computing and saving subtotals as the data comes in, one can make "reports" run much faster. (I have seen 10x to 1000x speedups.) The subtotals go into a "summary table". This document guides you on efficiency in both creating and using such tables.

A mile offshore from San Benedicto, a volcanic island in the Eastern Pacific, and 75 feet deep, I raise my GoPro to take a selfie. I want to preserve this moment, not only because it’s the first dive of what promises to be a truly memorable adventure, but also because on my wrist is a very rare watch. I’m wearing a vintage Tornek-Rayville TR-900, a watch built by Blancpain for the United States Navy in the 1960s, and this is likely the only surviving one that has been fully serviced and suitably sealed for modern dive use. It’s a photo for bragging rights, or perhaps an epitaph, should I be the one to lose or flood such a rare horological treasure.

Do you like TV ads? How about magazine ads? Do you pay attention to them or do you just skip them? Now let me ask you another question: Do you like stories? Do you enjoy being immersed into an exciting narrative allowing you to escape reality and enter a new world? I like stories. I like to let my brain follow the imaginative flow of a good story and visualise the narrative, the heroes, the actions and happenings of what I am reading, watching or experiencing. As a marketer you are probably used to relying more on hard facts and lists of benefits rather than engaging stories. That might have worked in the Mad Man era, but in the world of real-time, non-stop social interactions and online content it no longer does.
