Had Computers and Internet an Impact on Us?

Posted in Humor by admin | Tags: , , ,

Probably no man could imagine what will from this small network evolve in the future. In the beginning of this story there was Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the U.S. Department of Defense. This led to creating the ARPANET and, much later, the Internet.

But what is sure? Sure is, that the Internet has completely changed how we communicate, how we think, how we buy products, how we make money, how we are dressed and even how we die.

“In the Beginning, ARPA created the ARPANET.
And the ARPANET was without form and void.

And darkness was upon the deep.

And the spirit of ARPA moved upon the face of the network and ARPA said, ‘Let there be a protocol,’ and there was a protocol. And ARPA saw that it was good.

And ARPA said, ‘Let there be more protocols,’ and it was so. And ARPA saw that it was good.

And ARPA said, ‘Let there be more networks,’ and it was so.”
Danny Cohen

Winning Moments of Haile Gebrselassie

Posted in People and Society by admin | Tags: , , ,

Haile Gebrselassie was born in Ethiopia on April 18, 1973. He grow up in family of ten children. What is the best on his life story and what every marathon runner know, is that he everyday ran 10 km to school with books in his hand and evenings runned back the same distance long. That has still impact on his left hand movement technique. But be honest, when I would have at least 50% of such pose running technique like he has, I would be overall happy.

Because Haile won so many championships, I will mention just the most impressive ones. If you preffer Olympic games gold medals, than he won two on 10000m long distance run – in Atlanta (1996) and in Sydney (2000).

If you preffer world records than all you have to remember is the following: Year 2008 – Berlin Marathon and magic time: 2:03:59.

That is half of mine time. But that is good news, I have a lot of space for improvement;)

Haile annouced retirement after New York City Marathon in 2010 because of problems with his knee. I assume that he has reconsidered his opinion and we can meet him on Vienna City Marathon 2011 on 21.1K (I am already training to catch him;) and on 2012 London Olympics. Keep running.

Unusual Bicycles and a Little Bit of Vehicles

Posted in Technology by admin | Tags: , , , ,

Bicycles are daily vehicles for many people. For some of them, it is a sport. And for the rest, it is a fun.

It is hard to find out who invented bicycle. After a search, I ended with two names that are somewhere in the beginning of history.

In 1418, Giovanni Fontana, built the first human powered land vehicle based on four wheels and used an endless rope connected via gears to the wheels.

And Leonardo da Vinci, sketches from the year 1493, showing a primitive version of a bicycle.

Anyway, today the construction and material of bikes are so different and automated that even the inventors would not recognize that it is a bike.

But one thing remains the same. You have to learn to ride the bike;)

“The bicycle is a curious vehicle. Its passenger is its engine.”
John Howard

Apes in the Bananas Caravan Alias Human Evolution

Posted in Animals by admin | Tags: , , , , ,

Before we look on some funny apes pictures bellow, lets have a look on some basic important facts.

Apes and humans are grouped together in the superfamily Hominoidea, which includes gibbons, orangutans, gorillas, and chimpanzees.

Evolutionary biologists do believe that humans evolved from primate ancestors, but those ancestors were not apes or monkeys. Apes are modern creatures, just as humans are. So biologists believe in “common ancestor to human” evolution, as well as “common ancestor to ape” evolution.

So to recapitulate – humans did not evolved from apes but humans and apes have common ancestors which confirm DNA analysis.
