Changyu’s Ningxia estate to become 100% biodynamic

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Speaking to db in London this week, Changyu’s chief winemaker, Lenz Moser, said the company hopes to be certified biodynamic in three years. “My big aim for Changyu is to convert the estate to being 100% biodynamic. We’re in the early stages of conversion at the moment and want to be fully certified by a European body in three years. If we achieve this, we’ll be the first certified biodynamic wine estate in China. “I practiced biodynamics in Austria. It brings Mother Nature in sync with the vineyard and keeps the ecosystem in tact. There’s the voodoo and cow shit element, which if you believe in it then it works. “Biodynamics is all about living with the vineyard on a daily basis and taking care of the land in a much more intense way.” As for the motivation behind the move, Moser said he’s doing it for ethical reasons. “People say that being biodynamic makes the wines takes better, but I doubt it. “I’m doing it for ethical reasons the same way you might drive an electric car. If a side effect is that the wine taste...

Climate change is set to kill off most of our nation’s Joshua trees by the end

Climate change is set to kill off most of our nation’s Joshua trees by the end of the century, according to a recent study. While some Joshua trees will hang on if humans rapidly lower their carbon emissions, if no action is taken to stop climate change we’ll lose nearly all of these iconic spiky trees, which only live in the area near southern California’s Joshua Tree National Park. Published in the journal Ecosphere in June, the study combines on-the-ground observations with climate models to determine that a worst-case scenario where we continue with business-as-usual emissions would result in just 0.02 percent of the trees’ current range remaining in Joshua Tree National Park between 2070 and 2099. Even if we do all we can to mitigate climate change, only 18.6 percent of the trees’ original habitat would remain, the researchers found. Rising temperatures, worsening drought, and a loss of groundwater spell serious trouble for this tree. In a bizarre decision on Wednesday, Joshua Tree National Park reversed course on closing its gates, … This study adds to the previous literature by coupling models with observational data. The scientists and a group of more than a hundred volu...

Library celebrates Apollo 11’s 50th anniversary | Ledger Independent

Join us on Sunday, July 21, at 2 p.m. in the Ripley Library Annex for a talk and visual program by Tom Zachman, detailing the space program that led up to the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. This is a free program, and everyone is welcome to attend. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that first landed humans on the Moon fifty years ago. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20,1969. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours later July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him 19 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hour together outside the spacecraft and collected 47.5 pounds of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Command module pilot Michael Collins flew the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon’s surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface at a site they named Tranquility Base before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit. Tom will address the engineering decisions of both the Soviet and American moon programs highlighting comparisons between the Russian N-1 and the United States Saturn V moon launch vehicles. He will...

Turning, drilling, cutting, deburring, roughing, and finishing operations

The higher-capacity 7mm SwissNano features 7mm x 50mm workpiece machining capacity, 2.5kW spindle output, and accommodations for 18 standard tools. The machine’s 6-axis kinematics enable turning, drilling, cutting, deburring, roughing, and finishing operations for producing precision parts in markets such as medical, dental, micromechanics, and electronics. While only slightly larger than the standard model, the 7mm SwissNano has the smallest footprint in its category, is ergonomic, boasts high thermal stability and precision, and is 180° accessible with its easily-removed bubble-type enclosure. Programming can be done with Tornos’ TISIS and TISIS computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software, which reduces setup time with efficient programming and workpiece optimization. Depending on the tool carrier, 2, 3, or 4 tools can be mounted underneath the counter-spindle. The machine also can be equipped with high-frequency spindles. Additional supplementary machining functions include thread whirling for main machining operations, gear hobbing, polygon milling, or cross-drilling for back-machining operations. Various part collection systems are offered depending on the part length and c...
