Thank you to the City of Montreal who chose Geogrid to calculate by drone the volume of snow collected every week!
The calculations make it possible to estimate the snowfall since the beginning of the winter season, to analyze the melting on hot days and to manage the storage in stages to reduce the risks of avalanches. #montreal#drone#uav#dji#calculations#photogrammetry#mapping#3Dmodel
CENTER of GRAVITY (CG)
Every aircraft has a specific point which is it's #CenterOfGravity . If you attached a string to that point and hung the plane, the aircraft would be straight and level. Calculating the weight and balance of the plane ensures you stay within the limits of the #CG and the plane stays straight and level.
Stay with me on this, in every pilot operating handbook #POH , there is a graph called the CG MOMENT ENVELOPE.
After making your W&B calculations, you’ll get two final figures (1) loaded aircraft #WEIGHT and (2) loaded aircraft #MOMENT . You take these two figures, go to the CG Moment Envelope #graph and plot these two figures on the graph. Next, see where these two figures intersect ON the graph.
IF that point of intersection is WITHIN the BLACK LINED BOX on the graph, then the aircraft is WITHIN it’s CG limits. IF the point of intersection is OUTSIDE of the black box, then the aircraft is NOT WITHIN it’s CG limits.
If it’s not within it’s CG limits, you’re going to have to change the #configuration of the weight in the aircraft. This may mean not taking certain items, moving heavier people towards the front seats or reducing the amount of fuel you’re carrying.
TRAINING & REAL LIFE
When training, you have to understand how to perform the W&B #calculations . It’s kinda tedious and you have to make sure you’re plugging the correct figures in the right places and do some basic math. Don’t let all the decimal points and long numbers intimidate you, the actual math is simple.
After training, most people start using a flight app like #Foreflight . It’s a great tool that lets you flight plan, calculate weight and balance and etc. Before a flight, I just plug some weights into the app and it automatically calculates the W&B and I can see where I sit within the #CGenvelope . After training, you can use tools like this to simply #flightplanning .

NEW VIDEO for Friday, January 19 GM Leonid Kritz A Sudden Thunderbolt from Shirov (strategy, tactics) #FreePreview at ChessLecture.com
After the opening White was clearly better – this is actually a very nice example of how to punish Black for small mistakes in the opening. However, one small imprecision and Shirov comes back with his most dangerous weapon – tactics! This game combines both strategic aspects and tactical calculations. #GMKritz#GMShirov#Tactics#Calculations#Chess
It’s night and day from the old ways of spreadsheets and Excel. We’re proud to have witnessed Dropmodel’s latest BETA launch, the next generation real estate analysis tool for everyone. If you dabble in real estate, give it a go 🎯 www.dropmodel.com
This is a drawing I did about 5 years ago.
At that time, I was living very much outside my awareness due to the incredibly ill condition of my body. I don't know how I created this piece of art. It came from no thoughts, just being.
Still, I was compelled to share it with many at the time. I joined a gallery and put it on display. I listened to the theories of others regarding it.
Then, on one particular day, with large crowds all over the gallery; I realized I didn't want to show the original anymore.
There were many people all around this drawing. They were arguing and debating. Many of them saw this as a very spiritual piece. Others thought it was pure evil.
There was a woman who felt very threatened by my drawing and stated that it was the 'evil eye'. This led me to think of all the distortions in history about the unknown. I personally never understood how someone could think an 'all seeing eye' was evil. Why be afraid of something that knows everything. Many people believe God sees all and knows all; yet this doesn't frighten them. It has to do with perception and deceit, Control.
As I listened to these people get louder with each of their opinions, I figured that this was causing a reaction that I didn't want to bring into the gallery.
I am in no way evil. However, it's not in my nature to condemn anyone of a different belief system.
To me, this drawing had a very strong presence of BEING. Not good or bad. Just being. This is understood by those who have reached the state of consciousness that holds no emotions or labels or descriptions.
But people were upset about this. And others were upset by them. It created a strong controversy. So after that night, I took it down and never put it back on display. There were many who wanted to buy it. Even someone who wanted to buy it so she could destroy it. I placed it in a safe place and that was it.
Hi. Here's the thing. I left my glucometer back at home. So we; me, my mind and my heart are going to do some, ahem, math.
Started the day with 175 fasting but took correction bolus and had a nice 1.30 hours of yoga session. I was around 80 before brunch; but the brunch included samolina (sooji) and two pieces of baked wraps made of wheat flour (paratha). Now, I don't know where I stand and how much to bolus for these scrambled eggs, which I am of course going to treat myself with. Although I look fresh, not sick, not tired but my head does feel a bit heavy and the eyes too. By the look and feels of it, I seem to be hovering around 190 mg/dl (which I wouldn't mind considering I had samolina for brunch). I'll go with 190 pre meal sugar to fix my dose for these eggs.
I don't like you samolina, I don't like you.

Everyone is a genius but if you judge this Robin here based on his ability to do sums you’d be forgiven for thinking he’s a dumbcunt. Calculations get harder if people in your life aren’t telling you what the fucking numbers are. That’s when you have to go full algebra on they ass. Timesin x’s and y’s and that. You might be amazing at mathS. Or just really good at guessing ;)
