If you have problems Parallel Parking – Here is the answer

If you have problems Parallel Parking – Here is the answer ! Video – this fantastic parallel parking device is just what we all need  but if you cannot find one to fit to your car we have included a tutorial on how to do it without the device .

Sometimes everything just falls into place – you turn the wheel and the car slips elegantly backwards into a space that barely accommodates its length.At other times – usually with a queue of traffic building up – a wheel mounts the kerb, a hubcap is scraped, the bumper of a neighbouring car is nudged, or the car is left stranded several feet from the pavement.

 

The parallel parking problem is a motion planning problem in control theory and mechanics to determine the path a car must take in order to parallel park into a parking space. The front wheels of a car are permitted to turn, but the rear wheels must stay fixed. When a car is initially adjacent to a parking space, to move into the space it would need to move in a direction perpendicular to the allowed path of motion of the rear wheels. The admissible motions of the car in its configuration space are an example of a nonholonomic system

AND HERE IS A TUTORIAL on the Classic method !

Well which do you prefer ????

There is nothing like a Dame ! – Joan Collins

There is nothing like a Dame ! – Joan Collins . Video – She has entertained and shocked us as the Bitch in Dynasty and now at 81 years old still looks like a starlet. Her list of 5 husbands looks like a score card BUT we love her .

As Alexis Carrington she became again the bitch portrayed in the novels of her sister Jackie .She knows  USA well since at the age of 22, Collins headed to Hollywood and landed sultry roles in several popular films, including The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing (1955) and Rally ‘Round the Flag, Boys! (1958). While she continued to make films in the US and the UK throughout the 1960s, her career languished in the 1970s, where she appeared in a number of horror flicks. Near the end of the decade, she starred in two films based on best-selling novels by her younger sister Jackie Collins: The Stud (1978) and its sequel The Bitch(1979).

She made her feature debut as a beauty contest entrant in Lady Godiva Rides Again (1951). Her filmography and television credits bear witness to her suitability as a Dame.

Dame Joan  maintains residences in London, Los Angeles, New York and France, describing her life as being “that of a gypsy”

BEFORE – Joan Collins 1950 – www.seamepost.com

“Good girls didn’t lose their virginity in those days and if you did you got married… that was the understanding in the early Fifties. So I married on the day after my 19th birthday.”

THE marriage, which survived long enough for Joan to move to Hollywood at 22 and establish a film career, was a disaster. But despite four divorces she points to the fact she’s been married for 36 of the past 60 years.

She celebrated her 11th wedding anniversary to fifth husband Percy Gibson, 47 – he produces her show – in February.

“I am a fan of marriage and a fan of being committed to the right person.

“I got it right for a few years with Anthony Newley [the late actor, singer and songwriter] but his penchant for other ladies was something I could not live with.

“But I had two fabulous children with him [singer Tara, 49, and artist son Sacha, 47]. I had Katy with my third husband Ron Kass. He went down the dreaded path of addiction and I never believed that anyone should ruin their lives with drugs. I have never been a fan of drugs because I like to keep a clear head.

“My fourth marriage to Peter Holm was an absolute disaster. My life was so screwed up at the time. I did not look screwed up because I was riding so high.

“I was on Dynasty at the time, which had become the biggest TV show across the world and my character Alexis was the most powerful woman. But I was having a tough time with Katy, who had been in a car accident aged just nine and was recovering from brain damage.

“I was seriously screwed by business managers and lawyers. One of my accountants failed to file my tax return for one of the years I made the most money.

“It came to light a couple of years later which meant paying over all the money I made in that particularly year to the taxman. I wish I had known just how incompetent some of these people could be. But I don’t like talking about the bad things. Life is tough for everyone. I prefer to see the good side of everything and know how lucky I am in so many ways.

“I have a wonderful family, wonderful children and a career which has gone on for all these years, which is amazing in this ephemeral age of reality stars.”

Video – Banned after the last Outrageous Party in 1958 at the Albert Hall London  after 50 years of garnering a reputation for being the most outrageous event in the social calendar, the venue’s chiefs were forced to cancel the costume ball after witnessing what they considered a shocking display of terribly uncivilised behaviour indeed!

The balls were well-known reports for public nudity, drunken displays of affection, fighting and unreserved homosexuality, which was then still illegal.

Queen’s Christmas Message 2014 -depressing what was the point ?

Queen’s Christmas Message -depressing what was the point ? WE are the ones in economic depression and need cheering up at Christmas . Completely missing the point that our valiant soldiers who fought for us in the First World War wanted to protect and save a FUTURE life of some enjoyment and pleasure from our hard work – one should sack one’s advisors !

All those young men who lost their lives in the 1st World war were trying to protect their families and their way of life and trying to make a better and PLEASURABLE  life for the future. So enough of this gloom give us William  as soon as possible please -NOT CHARLES – who is already 66 years OLD !

Glass of Red Wine equates to an hour of exercise

Yes – a glass of Red Wine equates to an hour of exercise . Christmas Cheer from a scientific study has discovered that resveratrol found in Red Wine can offer the same benefits as working out.The only bad news? Not-red wines don’t count (sorry, Chardonnay-lovers), and it only works with one glass — so chugging a bottle a week doesn’t equate to four to six gym sessions.

CHRISTMAS CHEER & GOOD Health in one glass of Red Wine -www.seamepost.com

CHRISTMAS CHEER & GOOD Health in one glass of Red Wine -www.seamepost.com

 

The researchers responsible for the glorious study — which was published in Journal of Physiology in May — discovered that resveratrol, a “natural compound” found in certain fruits, nuts, and (you guessed it) red wine, could actually “enhance exercise training and performance.”

 

I repeat: Drinking a glass of  merlot could be just as good for you as an hour of working out at the gym. Feel free to commence rejoicing at this time.

 

According to Leah Kaufman, a registered dietitian, wine is the “most calorie friendly” alcoholic beverages, adding up to only 100 calories in a typical five-ounce glass. Kaufman mentions that wine also contains antioxidants and can help prevent heart disease, as well as lower bad cholesterol and the formation of blood clots. Another bonus? Apparently red wine acts as a mouthwash because the flavan-3-ols in it can reduce “bad bacteria” found in your mouth.

George Rousse – French Artist Photographer -www.seamepost.com

 

When he was 9 years old, Rousse received the legendary Kodak Brownie camera as a Christmas gift. Since then, the camera has never left his side. While attending medical school in Nice, he decided to study professional photography and printing techniques, then opened his own studio dedicated to architectural photography. Soon, his passion for the medium led to devote himself entirely to photography, following in the footsteps of such great American masters as Steichen, Stieglitz and Ansel Adams.

After he discovered Land Art, Malevich’s Black Square Against a White Field’s work. Georges Rousse altered his relationship to photography, practicing an approach that shifted the relationship of painting to space.

SHOOTING STARS – don’t miss them Diary for 2015 -free fireworks !

SHOOTING STARS – don’t miss them Diary for 2015 -free fireworks !Shooting stars look like stars that quickly shoot across the sky, but they are not stars. A shooting star is really a small piece of rock or dust that hits Earth’s atmosphere from space. It moves so fast that it heats up and glows as it moves through the atmosphere. Shooting stars are actually what astronomers call meteors. Most meteors burn up in the atmosphere before they reach the ground. However, once in a while a meteor is large enough than some of it survives and reaches Earth’s surface. Then it is called a meteorite.

WISH UPON A SHOOTING STAR ! www.seamepost.com

A shooting star is another name for a meteoroid that burns up as it passes through the Earth’s atmosphere. So, a shooting star isn’t a star at all.Most of the shooting stars that we can see are known as meteoroids. These are objects as small as a piece of sand, and as large as a boulder. Smaller than a piece of sand, and astronomers call them interplanetary dust. If they’re larger than a boulder, astronomers call them asteroids.

A meteoroid becomes a meteor when it strikes the atmosphere and leaves a bright tail behind it. The bright line that we see in the sky is caused by the ram pressure of the meteoroid. It’s not actually caused by friction, as most people think.

When a meteoroid is larger, the streak in the sky is called a fireball or bolide. These can be bright, and leave a streak in the sky that can last for more than a minute. Some are so large they even make crackling noises as they pass through the atmosphere.

If any portion of the meteoroid actually survives its passage through the atmosphere, astronomers call them meteorites.

Some of the brightest and most popular meteor showers are the Leonids, the Geminids, and the Perseids. With some of these showers, you can see more than one meteor (or shooting star) each minute.

AIDS – Lest we Forget – World AIDS DAY

AIDS – Lest we Forget – World AIDS DAY  – Out of the 34 million HIV-positive people worldwide, 69% live in sub-Saharan Africa. There are roughly 23.8 million infected persons in all of Africa. See our LINKS for how YOU can Help….

World Aids Day  -www.seamepost.com

World Aids Day -www.seamepost.com

1. 91% of the world’s HIV-positive children live in Africa.

2. More than one million adults and children die every year from HIV/AIDS in Africa alone. In 2011, 1.7 million people worldwide died from AIDS.

Freddie Mercury-Lost to AIDS -www.seamepost.com

Freddie Mercury-Lost to AIDS -www.seamepost.com

3. Since the epidemic of HIV/AIDS, more than 75 million people have contracted the illness, and over 36 million have died from an HIV-related cause.

4. 71% of the HIV/AIDS-related deaths in 2011 were people living in Africa.

Rudolf nureyev-lost to aids -www.seamepost.com

Rudolf nureyev-lost to aids -www.seamepost.com

5. Antiretroviral drug treatments can tremendously decrease the number of HIV-related deaths by delaying the progression of the virus and allowing people to live relatively healthy, normal lives.

6. Due to an insufficient supply of antiretroviral drugs and health care providers in 2010, only 5 of the 10 million HIV-positive patients in Africa were able to receive treatment.

7 Because of HIV/AIDs, the average life-expectancy in sub-Saharan Africa is 54.4 years of age. In some countries in Africa, it’s below 49.

Rock Hudson - Lost to AIDS -www.seamepost.com

Rock Hudson – Lost to AIDS -www.seamepost.com

8. The HIV/AIDS epidemic has drastically slowed the economic growth and social development in Africa, because hundreds of thousands of people are unable to work or receive an education.

9. Contraceptive use of condoms has doubled in recent years because it is an inexpensive provision to offer to both the HIV-positive and negative. However, the method is void when couples are hoping to conceive or have already engaged with infected persons

10. A pregnant woman not treated with the proper drugs, has a 20-45% chance that her infant will contract the virus from pregnancy. 59% of HIV-positive people in Africa are women, the majority of children diagnosed with HIV get the virus from their mothers.

Arthur Ashe - Lost to AIDS -www.seamepost.com

Arthur Ashe – Lost to AIDS -www.seamepost.com

Today is World Aids Day – but have we forgotten ? Are we doing enough ? Was it a biologically manufactured disease ? Some  insist that the USA government deliberately injected gay men with the virus during 1978 hepatitis-B experiments in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Still others point to Richard Nixon, who combined the U.S. Army’s biowarfare department with the National Cancer Institute in 1971.

The epidemic did not begin in Africa. The first AIDS cases were uncovered in Manhattan in 1979. At that time there were no reported African cases. In fact, the AIDS epidemic in Africa did not begin until the autumn of 1982 at the earliest.

How was HIV introduced exclusively into the gay community in the late 1970s? The exclusive introduction of HIV into the homosexual population of New York City is an unprecedented event in the history of medicine. This biologic phenomenon has never been fully explained scientifically. There is certainly no evidence to indicate white gay men were the only people exposed to sexual contact with Africans, particularly at a time when the epidemic did not exist in Africa. Furthermore, it is biologically impossible for a purported sexually-transmitted and blood borne “virus out of Africa” to infect only young, white, healthy men in Manhattan! Yet, the impossible did happen. Despite these facts, we are repeatedly told that AIDS began in Africa, even though the American epidemic began before the African epidemic.

France House for sale in Forest with Lake/Beach view Pyrenees

France House for sale in Forest with Lake/Beach view Pyrenees Share on Facebook An Exceptional Modern Country House

with independent Garden Apartment Click here for full details
The only house set in  300 hectares of National Forest 
with
Swimming Lake and Beach

 

 

 

Boasting Stunning Panoramic Views to the Pyrenees.

 

from all principal rooms and terraces.

This stunning modern architect designed property in an enviable location, set as it is in 2.21 ha of forest woodlands on the side of a hill, making it remarkably private. If that were not private enough, the property is then surrounded by a further 300 or so hectares of woodland. Constructed over three levels in the mid-70s when planning laws were much more relaxed (so there is no danger of acquiring unwanted new neighbours as you would never get permission to construct here nowadays) the house has been very well designed and has the style of a building by Frank Lloyd Wright, America’s most famous architect.  

Adhering to the philosophy of organic architecture for which Wright was known, indoor and outdoor living spaces are very well integrated. Despite being a modern building, the house fits very naturally into its environment.  

There is an attractive vine on the side of the house and a huge wisteria growing over the front. Although there is obviously a main door, the most natural way to enter the house is via the ramp from the garden to the first level balcony that runs along the entire front of the house. From this balcony, you have the most wonderful view across the forest to the pretty local market town and beyond that to the Pyrenees. Every floor of the house has either a balcony or terrace and every room on the south side of the house has been designed to take advantage of the beautiful view.

The terrace and the balconies have been cleverly constructed so that in the summer when the sun is high there is no direct sunlight into the rooms so they remain cool whereas in the winter when the sun is lower, direct sunlight floods in to provide additional warmth.

Located just outside the village of Aignan , the property provides ~ 240 m² of habitable surface area with an additional ~ 60m² of space in the annexes.   The property comprises 3 floors.           On the first level: Through the front door into a lobby (3m²) with space for storing coats and boots and with steps down to the lower level. Main hall (8.30m²), with cloakroom, sink and Wc (1m²). Stairs to first floor. There are doors through to the dining room and living room. The living room (32.80m²) has 3 large floor-to-ceiling sliding double doors with access out on to the balcony and providing lots of natural light and wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. The feature fireplace divides this large double Salon heating it from both sides, the other half of the room is 25.5m² and has stairs up to the galleried library/study. The kitchen (8.15m²) has fitted units and views out over the hills.           Next to the kitchen is a room (5.10m²) with a bath (the lady who commissioned the house was elderly) but this could easily be removed and the two rooms could be knocked into one giving you an area of 15m² to create a much larger kitchen. Dining room (17.70m²) with large floor to ceiling double sliding doors out to Terrace.       This huge part covered terrace has disabled access and large summer dining (10 pers) and seating areas with wonderful views.       On the second level:

2 Suites – 3 bedrooms ,WC, 2 bathrooms one with shower ,one with bath.
From the landing there is a corridor with large built-in cupboards.
Immediately to your left is the door to the galleried library (10.90m²).

 

Suite 1 (18m²) Bedroom 1 = en-suite with bath, bidet and sink and fitted cupboards ,private terrace overlooking the hills and Pyrenees

Suite 2 Bedroom 2 (12m²) with doors out to a private terrace. Bedroom 3 (11m²) with large fitted wardrobes.
Bathroom (5m²) with shower, sink – Separate Wc (1.10m²).

Garden Floor:   Independent Apartment   Stairs down from the lobby, Door through to corridor leading to bathroom (2.20m²) with shower, bidet and sink. Separate Wc (1.10m²).   Studio Room (25m²) with doors out to the terrace. Separate Kitchen (9.10m²) with fitted cupboards.   Huge Covered terrace with dining and seating areas   Laundry room (5.40m²). . wine cellar (8m²), large 2 car garage (49m²).                 The Estate – easily managed organic gardens and grounds           The garden and parkland is incredibly peaceful and private with wonderful views .     The area immediately surrounding the house is laid to lawn and includes a croquet pitch, golf practice driving range and tennis practice wall..           The rest of the Organic Park (2.21 hectares in total) is to the sides and front of the property and has not seen chemicals for 10 years and is presently mowed in a regime as a wild flower meadow. The Forested borders  provide firewood .   Wildlife abounds in this forest with roe and muntjac deer ,badgers ,wild boar ,red squirrels and pine marten, lizards and salamanders

The bird life many of whom snack from the feeders on the terrace include hoophoe, golden Oriel , nuthatch, woodpeckers ,woodcock ,Kites, buzzard and peregrine falcons.

 

The Forest of Aignan was donated to the community by the Duchess of Bouillon in 1640
and this is the only house ever to have been built in this Forest.

 

At the other end of the 300 hectare forest there is a swimming and fishing lake with a beach and a small cafe – ideal of long hot summer days and barbacues.

Chinese Billionaire creates world’s tallest Eco friendly building

Chinese Billionaire creates world’s tallest Eco friendly building .Video  with indoor farms capable of feeding 20,000 and to be finished by the end of this year Sky City, a vertical metropolis will have  homes and hotels, schools and hospitals 

 

“It’s always said that the solution to environmental problems starts at the grass roots level,” says Chinese billionaire Zhang Yue, sitting in his office in Changsha, central China, in a building modelled on the Palace of Versailles. Out of the window extends a long ceremonial avenue, lined with ornamental box hedges and cypress trees, terminating in a replica of the Great Pyramid at Giza.

“I think that’s a mistake. Rich people recognise environmental problems first. How can you wake up if your living standard is very poor? Only the richest of the rich, the smartest of the smart, the greatest of the great, wake up first.”

Zhang would know about such things. He was the first man in China to own a private jet, having made his millions selling air conditioning units, but at the age of 54 has now renounced his material possessions in favour of saving the planet. And his answer? Building the tallest building in the world in the fastest possible time: Sky City, a vertical metropolis of homes and hotels, schools and hospitals – along with indoor farms capable of feeding 20,000. To be finished by the end of this year, he hopes.

D-Day -90 year old Veteran escapes Care Home for Normandy

D-Day -90 year old Veteran escapes Care Home for Normandy. Bernard Jordan a former Mayor of Hove secretly left his Care Home , wearing his medals under his grey jacket and boarded a coach to France.

D-DAY Adventure for Bernard Jordan – www.seamepost.com

At 10.30pm on Thursday – 12 hours after he was last seen – a younger veteran called to say he had met the pensioner on a coach on the journey to the commemorations.

He said the pair were sitting in a hotel in Ouistreham, Normandy, where world leaders have been mingling with veterans to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Mr Jordan, a former mayor of Hove, was pictured with “Candy Girl” ferry staff on the way back to England.

Staff member Sonia Pittam told Sky News the 90-year-old was “a game old boy”.

She said: “He certainly has his wits about him, he didn’t say much about the landings, just how pleased he was to be on board and couldn’t believe how everyone was looking after them and all the people waving on the route to the harbour entrance.”

New Google Driverless Car with No steering Wheel

New Google Driverless Car with No steering Wheel. Video .Fantasy or Futile with Space for 2 people, speed of  25mph and no pedals just an emergency Stop !

Google has demonstrated its own driverless car, a design that does away with all conventional controls including the steering wheel, and says it will build 100 of the vehicles for testing with the eventual aim of “bringing this technology to the world safely”.

The company had for several years been testing everyday cars equipped with sensors, navigation equipment and computers to drive themselves but in the meantime it has secretly developed a prototype from scratch that will have no facility for a human to take control, other than an emergency stop button.

An initial 100 testbed versions would retain manual controls, Google said as it unveiled the car on Tuesday. The controls are needed to comply with the law in California which along with Nevada and Florida allows autonomous vehicles but only if a driver can take charge.

Chris Urmson, director of Google’s self-driving car project, said the aim was to run extended tests in California where Google is based. Urmson argued driverless cars would improve road safety, calling the development “an important step toward improving road safety and transforming mobility for millions of people”. Google said its testing had suggested it was safer to remove conventional controls altogether because the results of a human having to take over suddenly and unexpectedly were unpredictable and potentially dangerous. “We saw stuff that made us a little nervous,” Urmson told the New York Times. The toy-like concept vehicle has two seats, a screen displaying the route and a top speed of 25mph (40km/h). An array of sensors allows the vehicle’s computer to determine its location and surroundings and it can “see” several hundred metres, according to Google. Source : New York Times

David Mora suffered serious injuries and had to have a blood transfusion after he was thrown over the horns of a bull called Deslio.

Horrified spectators watched as Mora was dragged like a rag doll by the half-tonne bull until assistants managed to separate the animal from the injured matador.

Bullfighting has been on the decline for years in Spain, with a 2010 survey in leading daily El Pais showing 60 percent of respondents opposed the practice.

Barcelona’s ring held its final bullfight in September 2011 after the Catalonia region banned bullfighting, the second Spanish region to do so after the Canary Islands.

BUT there is are still many bullfights which continue

It seems hard to believe that in this so-called civilised age, a most vicious and cruel spectacle of blood continues to flourish in Spain and certain other countries. Bullfighting is barbaric and should have been banned long ago, as bear-baiting was. It is difficult to understand how crowds of people will pay money and take pleasure in watching one lone creature – who has never done them any harm — getting hacked to death. How can anyone with an ounce of compassion, cheer and chant olé as a banderilla or lance is thrust into the animal’s pain-racked body?

Bullfighting has a very glorified public image — it is presented as a contest between the brave matador, who boldly risks life and limb to tackle a mad and ferocious beast. The matador is always dressed in a traditional costume of brilliant colours: the bullfight is seen by many as the mysterious ritual between man and beast, which is an integral part of Spanish culture and custom. For this reason, many tourists who visit Spain feel that seeing a bullfight is a necessary part of their holiday
