Lego Star Wars Review Set 8036 Separatist Shuttle

california101   October 31, 2017   Comments Off on Lego Star Wars Review Set 8036 Separatist Shuttle

The Star Wars Lego set, Separatist Shuttle, model number 8036 recreates Nute Gunray’s Shuttle as seen in The Clone Wars television series episode Mission to Rodia. In this episode Nute Gunray flew to the planet Rodia to recruit the planet’s leader and Padme Amidala’s old friend Onaconda Farr. Nute hoped to trap Padme as revenge for her role in the Battle Of Naboo, where, as queen, she successfully defended her planet from Separatist Shuttle. With 259 pieces and with a recommended retail price of $29.99 this may seem like a small set for the price but the exclusive minfigures go some way towards making up for the vehicle’s small size. The five figures include two regular battle droids (both are the new arm version that allows them to hold a gun properly) and one pilot battle droid who is distinguished by having a blue torso piece rather than the regular tan. Nute Gunray appears at last in a Lego set, after a decade of absence and he is a screen accurate representation of his Clone Wars character. The color s and detail on the torso are beautiful and his Neimoidian features and ceremonial headpiece make him instantly recognizable. The final figure is another first, the Rhodian senator Onaconda Farr and again Lego have done a wonderful job with the colors and designs on this figure. The vehicle itself is fairly small and simple. As a shuttle there are not many weapons or play features that would feature on a starfighter of similar size. Instead there is an opening at the back which converts to a ramp for Nute to exit the vehicle and an opening cockpit for the pilot droid to sit. The legs of the ship lower and raise manually and the creepy spider-look makes for a nice effect…. Read more »

How to Train Your Voice to Be More Charismatic

california101   October 21, 2017   Comments Off on How to Train Your Voice to Be More Charismatic

There is an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal, by the same title, about the charismatic influence your voice can have in your professional life. Having analyzed the voices of leaders in countries such as Brazil, France, and Italy, scientists have found that those who exhibited charisma -use their voices to dominate, rouse and influence a large audience.- By analyzing the voice and speech patterns of various political leaders and CEOs, they discovered that there were two areas which strongly influenced how these speakers were perceived by audiences. Both the depth of the voice as well as the ability to be expressive were the two most common characteristics of charismatic leaders. As an example, they discovered that -CEOs with lower-pitched voices typically manage larger firms, make more money and last longer on the job than higher-pitched peers, studies at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business have found.- The scientists also found that speaking with expression – which means varying your pitch throughout your delivery is as important as the quality of your sound. I refer to this as color – the life, the emotion, and the animation you express by means of your vocal variety, facial expression and body language. While none of this information was new to me, it is interesting that they seemed surprised by their findings. Let me ask you. Would you prefer to listen to a deep, resonant voice or one which is high-pitched, squawky, or shrill? The title of the article, however, was misleading because they did not discuss how to train your voice to be more charismatic. So I will. There are two things you must do to improve your voice and speech patterns: 1.Use your chest cavity to power and amplify your voice. Most people do not use their chest as a… Read more »

How Transportation Methods Keep Fresh Flowers Fresh

california101   October 17, 2017   Comments Off on How Transportation Methods Keep Fresh Flowers Fresh

Chances are the flowers that arrived on your doorstep today traveled a long, grueling journey from flower farms in the Netherlands or South America. Yet they look just as fresh as they were when they were growing in fields. The secret to their blooming appearance is in the transportation methods used by the flower industry when they ship flowers to any point in the world. Depending on where they are grown, flowers take various routes to their buyers. For local shipments, some growers send their flowers to a packing company, who grades the flowers and arranges them in bunches. The packing company then sends the flowers to supermarkets or flower shops. Other growers cut, pack, and package the flowers themselves in the nurseries and send them out to buyers through mail, or to wholesale markets. International shipments work a little differently. Sometimes, flowers are packed in flat boxes, which allow a large number of flowers to be put in small spaces like airplane holds. Other flowers like expensive tropical varieties will not survive long without a constant supply of fresh water. Delicate tropical flowers are sent with a little water holder at the ends or shipped out in buckets of water. The latter method not only extends the life of the flowers; it also reduces labor time because once the plane or the boat arrives, the flowers are ready to be sold. On the other hand, buckets are heavier than boxes and take up more space. This method costs more and reduces the number of flowers that can be shipped. Thats why tropical flowers are the usually the most expensive in your local flower shop. Even growers in developing countries such as The Philippines now are using modern transportation technology that improves the shipment quality of their local flower industry…. Read more »

The Causes Of Trainrailroad Accidents

california101   October 15, 2017   Comments Off on The Causes Of Trainrailroad Accidents

Train/railroad accidents are different from regular vehicular accidents like cars, motorcycles or buses. Unlike those other vehicles where you can take some precautions to avoid accidents, your life is mostly on the hands of the train operator during the entire ride. The victims in a train accident though are not exclusively passengers. They could be: Motorists Other vehicles like cars and motorcycles can be involved in a train collision in railroad crossings. Pedestrians People waiting on a train stop or those near or crossing a railroad can also be struck by an out of control train. Employees Railroad workers can also be victims in a railroad collision or any accident during train operations. Since state laws are not really applicable to railroad employees and they cannot take advantage of workers compensation, they can sue the railroad company for damages through the Federal Employers Liability Act or FELA. Aside from on the job accidents that injure or kill employees, there are two other common railroad accidents. These are: Train Crashes This could be single crashes where the train is removed from the tracks by force; it could be a collision between two trains on the same track; or it could be a collision with another vehicle like a car or with pedestrians. The most common causes of Railroad crashes are: Poor design of railroad crossing leading to limited operator vision Failure to blow horns at required distances Trains running beyond speed limits Failure to trim plants and vegetations that obscure train paths Malfunctioning crossing arms, warning bells and warning lights Absence of crossing guards at dangerous intersections, especially at locations where there is a history of previous crashes Toxic Exposure Collisions and crashes are not the only danger that people should look out for in trains.
