Nu-i suficient sa stii sa vinzi, trebuie sa existe si cineva care sa vrea sa cumpere.  :happy:
Iar fatuca aia cu petecelul, are hoarde de masculi care stau la coada. Dar trebuie sa se grabeasca, ca sezonul de vanzari nu tine mult.

October 12, 2017
https://www.si.com/nba/2017/10/12/michael-jordan-smokes-cigars-six-day
Michael Jordan has joined Winston Churchill as perhaps the most iconic cigar smokers in history. Jordan's post-playing aesthetic is chilling on a golf course, with that one hoop earring in, and puffing on a stogie. The guy's earned the right to do basically whatever he wants.
Jordan did an interview with...wait for it...Cigar Aficionado for the magazine's upcoming 25th anniversary issue that hits newstands on Oct. 31, and he was asked how often he smokes.
"I smoke six cigars a day," Jordan said.
Yooooooooo! That's a lot of cigars! I'm not here to judge, but six cigars a day seems a bit indulgent, if not harmfully hedonistic.
Jordan spoke on a number of other interesting topics, including who he thinks is the greatest basketball player of all time
"I never played against Wilt Chamberlain, Jordan said. "I never played against Jerry West. To now say that one’s greater than the other is being a little bit unfair…I won six championships. Bill Russell won 11. Does that make Bill Russell better than me or make me better than him? No, because we played in different eras."
He also nixed the idea of his ever coaching an NBA team:
"I have no patience for coaching. My biggest problem from a competitive standpoint is the focus of today’s athlete. For me to ask an individual to focus on the game the way I played would, in some ways, be unfair. And if he didn’t do it, there’s no telling where my emotions would be."
That's some first class passive aggression right there. He's basically saying that he can't coach because mamby-pamby millennial athletes today simply can't focus like MJ could.
Never change, MJ.

I Translate it

US Air Force Wants To Put Lasers On Fighter Jets By 2021, Bringing Us One Step Closer To Star Wars

[/size]



The US Air Force's scientific research wing is giving Lockheed Martin $US26.3 million ($34.3 million) "for the design, development, and production of a high power fibre laser" which it expects to start testing on a tactical fighter jet in four years. Sounds cool and certainly futuristic, but the jury's still out on whether these weapons have any real tactical value.

[/size]It sounds like science fiction, but lasers - formally known as "directed-energy weapons" - have been used by the US Army's ground forces for years. But now, the Pentagon's Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) wants to take the next step and give these seemingly futuristic weapons a set of wings. As announced earlier this week, Lockheed Martin was awarded the contract as part of AFRL's Self-protect High Energy Laser Demonstrator (SHiELD) program.[/size]

[/size]"Lockheed Martin continues to rapidly advance laser weapon systems and the technologies that make them possible," said Rob Afzal, a Lockheed laser weapons expert, in a statement. "We have demonstrated our ability to use directed energy to counter threats from the ground, and look forward to future tests from the air as part of the SHiELD system."[/color]
[/size]Earlier this year, Lockheed unveiled a 60 kilowatt-class laser that can be installed on trucks, such as the Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck - the US Army's largest ground vehicle. But now Lockheed has to make a laser that can be installed onto a fighter jet - no small task given that laser systems tend to be big and heavy. They're also energy hogs that need to cooled both during and after use. The new laser will need to work in a tight, compact environment, and be immune to the effects of vibrations, temperatures and tremendous G forces. At the same time, the system cannot impair aeronautic performance.[/size]
[/size]"It's a completely new and different challenge to get a laser system into a smaller, airborne test platform. It's exciting to see this technology mature enough to embed in an aircraft," said Afzal. "The development of high power laser systems like SHiELD show laser weapon system technologies are becoming real. The technologies are ready to be produced, tested and deployed on aircraft, ground vehicles and ships."[/color]
[/size][/color]
[/size]The SHiELD program itself consists of three different components, all of which are being designed and developed by different manufacturers. Northrop Grumman is currently at work on the beam control system, called STRAFE, which will be used to direct the laser to the target. Boeing is current developing a pod that will be mounted on the fighter jet to power and cool the laser, and Lockheed Martin is working on LANCE - the high energy laser itself. Once all these components are brought together, and as part of the SHiELD program, AFRL will test the capabilities of a laser-equipped fighter jet to defend itself from the air or ground.[/color]
[/size]Lockheed did not disclose the power of the pending laser weapon, but did say it will be in the "tens of kilowatts" range. And as reported in Defence News, it also isn't known which fighter jet will carry the laser or how the Air Force will test the weapon during the 2021 demos.[/size]
[/size]At an initial $US26.3 million ($34.3 million) price tag, it's reasonable to ask if an extravagant weapon such as this is even worth it. Fighter jets already have an assortment of air-launched weapons, including conventional bombs, missiles (including ground-to-air missiles), and even torpedoes. Lasers (as already noted) require a tremendous amount of energy, they have a short range, and they suck in settings where there's haze, smoke and dust.[/color]
[/size]"Lasers are no substitute for guns and missiles," according to an analysis put out earlier this year by the Strategic Culture Foundation. "They can add to the defensive capabilities but cannot be used as primary strike weapons."[/color]
[/size]But the US War Machine is a hungry beast, and futuristic-sounding weapons are an easy sell - even if they are redundant, limited in scope, and often ineffective.[/color]

Io am inteles ca releele de semnalizare se potrivesc la bemeweie, om ma fac daca vind asa ceva, ca alea de le pune nemtii pe masini e proaste, se strica imediat ce cumpara omu bemweul, cred ca de aia nu am vazut bmw in trafic sa semnalizeze cind schimba banda sau face stinga.

A man has to be careful not to over-accessorize. Too many rings, necklaces, and cuffs and you lose the magic an expertly chosen accessory provides. It’s why we’ve always gone to bat for the most timeless accessory there is: the watch. The men profiled in [/size]A Man and His Watch[/color][/size] got it right. The 216-page, gorgeously shot hardcover is an ode to iconic watches and the men who wore them. Paul Newman and his Rolex Daytona are profiled, as are JFK and the Omega he wore at his inauguration, Nas and his Patek Philippe, and so many more. From author and watch collector Matt Hranek comes this beautiful coffee table book that’s filled with 76 captivating stories. We will warn you, however. You will want a statement timepiece of your own after you flip through this book.

 ARKUP MOBILE OVERWATER VILLAS

Combining elements of a houseboat, luxury yacht, and oil rig, Arkup Mobile Overwater Villas propose a new solution for maritime living. Designed by Dutch architect Koen Olthuis, the 4,350 square-foot solar-powered inaugural model offers four bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and laundry room, outfitted with high-end finishes and floor-to-ceiling windows. Its unique hydraulic self-elevating system can lift it above the waves, keep you safe in a storm — it's designed to withstand a Category 4 hurricane — and transform the moving vessel into a stationary home, making it more permanent than a yacht yet far less constricting than a shoreline condo.

Eu drept să spun, nu ştiu ce mi-a venit să scriu de data asta.
Scriu şi eu aşa, poate că-mi place de ce zice stăpânul topicului,
sau de numele lui, ori de frumoasa lui familie, sau poate de
plăcerile şi realizările lui, sau poate că dacă toţi românii ar fi
ca ungurul ăsta, am fi un popor deştept şi desţelenit la minte,
la care toţi s-ar uita cu invidie.
Dar nu despre asta vreau să scriu.
Sau poate aş zice ceva despre cei doi R, care scuipă pe spiritul
taclalei, sau poate despre acoliţii lor, sau despre limbajul de
vatmaniţă al frumoasei M (phd), ori despre topicele cu nume
idioate deschise de oameni cu şcoală multă şi minte puţină.
Şi ce spuneam, c-am uitat de la mână pân' la gură?
A, da!
La mulţi ani, Dorele, ţie şi celor născuţi pe 15 noiembrie! :)

Set along the trails of Iceland, the Skyli Trekking Cabin is a refuge for hikers from the harsh elements. The structure is comprised of four gabled roofs. Although it resembles a tent, this shelter is clad in a steel facade to protect you from the elements. A bright blue color makes it easily visible in the rugged landscape while also paying homage to the architecture of the country's capital. The interior is lined with cross-laminated timber and features enough fold-out beds for up to 15 people, water, power, and even emergency supplies. Beneath each peak, large triangular windows take advantage of the surrounding scenery. Its prefabricated design allows for materials to be easily transported by helicopter. Once they're delivered, the assembly can be completed in as little as a couple days.

The Earth, the Sun, Andromeda galaxy, they have all been around for as long as you can remember and as long as humanity has been around. So when a new light suddenly shows up in the distance, it's a weird occurrence. But a newly-detected explosion could be one of the weirdest - and it isn't the only one.

An international team of scientists is reporting a new kind of explosion that they can't quite explain, billions of light years away. Maybe it's a supernova. Or maybe it's a star being eaten by a black hole. Or maybe it's something entirely different.

"I'm a supernova person to start with so I got really thrilled that this could be the most energetic supernova ever," Peter Lundqvist from Stockholm University in Sweden told Gizmodo. "But I had second thoughts."

The brightest of the new sources is called PS1-10adi, an outburst of energy a thousand times brighter than a normal supernova near the center of a distant galaxy. It was about as bright as its host galaxy.

This explosion appeared in telescopic surveys of the distance Universe, including Pan-STARRS1 in Hawaii. The researchers followed up with other telescopes and watched the source's light flare, then fade regularly for a thousand days. Typical supernovae dim after around 200 days.

While completing their survey, the researchers found an entire population of explosions just like PS1-10adi. They say these explosions were incorrectly associated with black hole activity at the center of these galaxies, according to the paper published in Nature Astronomy on Monday.

Aside from incredibly bright supernovae, the scientists proposed it could be an entirely new kind of tidal disruption event - an event where a black hole eats a star. Perhaps the high-density environments surrounding supermassive black holes can create the ripe conditions for different kinds of explosions.

But no matter what PS1-10adi is, it's definitely interesting.
