“Flying-V” Dutch developed futuristic aircraft makes successful maiden flight

“Flying-V” Dutch developed futuristic aircraft makes successful maiden flight

Dutch Researchers ‘“Flying-V” has completed a successful maiden flight of the futuristic and fuel efficient aircraft that could one day carry passengers in its wings. 

The unique design of the Flying-V places the passenger cabin, the cargo hold and the fuel tanks in the wings, and experts hope that the plane’s aerodynamic shape will cut fuel consumption by 20% compared to today’s aircrafts.

The Flying-V is developed by researchers at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and partner Dutch airline KLM, to take the highly anticipated aircraft along its next developmental steps.

Experts worked hard to optimize the plane: in order to improve telemetry, the team was forced to change the aircraft’s center of gravity and adjust its antenna.

A team of researchers and engineers tested the aircraft at a guarded airbase in Germany, where they worked with an Airbus team to test takeoffs, maneuvers and approaches, and landing.

National Dog Day – August 26th

National Dog Day – August 26th

Over 15,000 years ago, a lone hunter came across an injured wolf and aided the animal by nursing him back to health.

Or so the theory goes. One thing is for sure, that when early humans domesticated wolves they formed a friendship that has endured the test of time.

National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th annually and was founded in 2004 to bring attention to the plight of animals around the globe and encourage adoption.

National Dog Day celebrates all dogs, mixed breed and pure. Our mission is to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day…for personal protection, for law enforcement, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage, now they’re detecting cancer and seizures…things even humans cannot do.

Women’s Equality Day – August 26

In a perfect world, Women’s Equality Day wouldn’t even be a thing. On August 26, 1920 women in America were first legally given the right to vote. Fifty years later,  Congress commemorated the day by designating August 26th as Women’s Equality Day.

The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality. Workplaces, libraries, organizations, and public facilities now participate with Women’s Equality Day programs, displays, video showings, or other activities.

Joint Resolution of Congress, 1971

Designating August 26 of each year as Women’s Equality Day

WHEREAS, the women of the United States have been treated as second-class citizens and have not been entitled the full rights and privileges, public or private, legal or institutional, which are available to male citizens of the United States; and

WHEREAS, the women of the United States have united to assure that these rights and privileges are available to all citizens equally regardless of sex; and

WHEREAS, the women of the United States have designated August 26, the anniversary date of the certification of the Nineteenth Amendment, as symbol of the continued fight for equal rights: and

WHEREAS, the women of United States are to be commended and supported in their organizations and activities,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that August 26th of each year is designated as Women’s Equality Day, and the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation annually in commemoration of that day in 1920, on which the women of America were first given the right to vote, and that day in 1970, on which a nationwide demonstration for women’s rights took place.

Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, Fifty-one years ago, on Aug. 18, 1969

Conservatives cringed @ his rendition of Star Spangled Banner @ the time, but now it is iconic piece of American music. RIP Jimi.

WORCESTER, Mass. – Fifty-one years ago, on Aug. 18, 1969, legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix stepped onto the stage at the Woodstock, N.Y., Music Festival and started upon an uninterrupted set lasting nearly two hours — one of the longest performances of his career. It concluded with a long medley that included the solo performance of the Star Spangled Banner that would become emblematic not only of Woodstock, but of the 1960’s.

Woodstock Music & Arts Festival 51st Anniversary. Held on August 15 – 17, 1969

The historic Woodstock Music & Arts Festival began on this date in 1969. Held on August 15 – 17, 1969, the landmark event for the era’s counterculture drew hundreds of thousands of people to Max Yasgur’s farm in Bethel, New York for a rain-drenched, muddy, three days of peace, love and most of all, music.

As we mark Woodstock’s 51st birthday, we celebrate not only our history, but look squarely at our present and the better future we all aspire to create.

Richie Havens’ festival-opening performance. Havens took the stage first because Sweetwater, the intended openers, were stuck in traffic and ended up needing a police escort to get on site. The rest of the playlist follows chronologically through the weekend, ending with Jimi Hendrix’s legendary sunrise performance the morning of Monday, August 18, 1969.

Included are partial or complete sets performed by Tim Hardin, Melanie, Joan Baez, Santana, Mountain, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Sly & The Family Stone, The Who, Jefferson Airplane (with Nicky Hopkins), Joe Cocker, Country Joe & The Fish, Ten Years After, The Band, Johnny Winter, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Sha Na Na.

Rendle, will be on the company’s board of directors, joins an elite group of women who are running corporate America’s top firms. Though her addition to the Fortune 500 group will bring the number of women CEOs to a record high.

Right now, women comprise less than 8% of the leaders on the Fortune 500 list, and none of those women are Black or Latina. When looking at the overall C-suite, women comprise only a fifth of these roles despite making up nearly half of the entry-level workforce.


Best Comedians on Netflix

With today’s Political climate may I suggest the following six comedians who are the best (In my humble opinion) comedians on Netflix. For the most part fairly low potty mouth. If a comedian or writter has to hide behind profanity to be funny then they aren’t that funny. These six comedians are the Super Bowl of Funny. I hope you like them. 

Comedians:

1.) Jim Gaffigan – Grammy-nominated 

2.) John Mulaney – Intellectually he is at the very top. Both of his parents were Attorneies. Very classy guy, former writter for SNL. 

3.) Jerry Seinfeld – “23 Hours” routine. 

4.) Sebastian Maniscalco

5.) Dana Carvey – Surprisingly funny 

6.) Kathleen Madigan 

* I do not recommend Ali Wong, what a Potty (Filthy) mouth!

In contrast to the Beatles' first two albums, all 13 tracks on A Hard Day's Night were written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, showcasing the development of their songwriting partnership.

How does the Beverly Hills Dog Show work? The American Kennel Club recognizes 205 breeds and varieties of dog (though every single one may not be represented at the Beverly Hills Dog Show from year to year).

In the first round of the Beverly Hills Dog Show, dogs of the same breed will compete against each other based on how the dog fits the breed standards. The winner, named “Best in Breed,” will represent their breed at the next level: the group.

The American Kennel Club categorizes every breed into seven groups (sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy, non-sporting and herding). At the group level, dogs are not judged against each other, but rather against how well they fit their breed standards. Each group winner, named “First in Breed,” will go on to compete in the final round for the coveted Best in Show.

OSCAR STATUETTE FACTS

Official Name: Academy Award® of Merit

Height: 13½ inches

Weight: 8½ pounds

Number of Awards Presented: 3,140

The Academy Awards, more popularly known as the Oscars, are awards for artistic and technical merit in the film industry. Given annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), the awards are an international recognition of excellence in cinematic achievements as assessed by the Academy’s voting membership. The various category winners are awarded a copy of a golden statuette, officially called the “Academy Award of Merit”, although more commonly referred to by its nickname, the “Oscar”. The statuette depicts a knight rendered in the Art Deco style.

92nd Academy Awards

The award was originally sculpted by George Stanley from a design sketch by Cedric Gibbons. AMPAS first presented it in 1929 at a private dinner hosted by Douglas Fairbanks in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in what would become known as the 1st Academy Awards. The Academy Awards ceremony was first broadcast by radio in 1930 and was televised for the first time in 1953. It is the oldest worldwide entertainment awards ceremony and is now televised live worldwide. It is also the oldest of the four major annual American entertainment awards; its other three equivalents – the Emmy Awards for television, the Tony Awards for theater, and the Grammy Awards for music – are modeled after the Academy Awards.

The 92nd Academy Awards ceremony, which honors the best films of 2019, will be held on February 9, 2020. The ceremony will again be broadcast on ABC. It will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, for the 18th consecutive year

While his previous stints haven’t been universally acclaimed, Gervais’ penchant for off-color jokes and celebrity roasts do have tendency to go viral.

The top film nominees for the 2020 Golden Globes are Marriage Story, which picked up six nominations, and The Irishman, which garnered five. For television, The Crown, Fleabag and Succession all picked up multiple nods.

The earliest Tournament of Roses welcomed 3,000 spectators to its first parade filled with beautiful, horse-drawn carriages covered in flowers. More than a century later, the parade floats are a marvel of state of the art technology, all tucked away beneath flowers and other all-natural materials.

ROSE PARADE HISTORY

PARTICIPANTS

Each year more than 80,000 hours of combined service are supplied by 935 volunteer members of the Tournament of Roses Association. Nicknamed “White Suiters” because of the distinctive white suits every volunteer wears, these community-spirited men and women give up their evenings, weekends and holidays to ensure the success of the Rose Parade® and Rose Bowl Game®.

2020 ROSE PARADE THEME – THE POWER OF HOPE

The 2020 theme, “The Power of Hope,” celebrates the influence of optimism and hope.

The belief that what is wanted can be attained. From the struggles of those who came before us to dreams yet fulfilled, hope is more than simply the possibility of fulfillment. Hope is dignity and respect, joy and happiness, aspiration and achievement. Hope never, ever quits. Through hope, we can aspire to be our best and in turn inspire those around us to reach higher.

With hope – anything, in fact, everything is possible.
