Olympic Equestrian Disciplins

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Equestrian events were first included in the modern Olympic Games in 1900. By 1912, all three Olympic disciplines still seen today were part of the games. The following forms of competition are recognized worldwide and are a part of the equestrian events at the Olympics:
Dressage (“training” in French) involves the progressive training of the horse to a high level of impulsion, collection, and obedience. Competitive dressage has the goal of showing the horse carrying out, on request, the natural movements that it performs without thinking while running loose. One dressage master has defined it as “returning the freedom of the horse while carrying the rider.”
Show jumping comprises a timed event judged on the ability of the horse and rider to jump over a series of obstacles, in a given order and with the fewest refusals or knockdowns of portions of the obstacles.
Eventing, also called combined training, horse trials, the three-day event, the Military, or the complete test, puts together the obedience of dressage with the athletic ability of show jumping, the fitness demands the cross-country jumping phase. In the last-named, the horses jump over fixed obstacles, such as logs, stone walls, banks, ditches, and water, trying to finish the course under the “optimum time.” There was also the ‘Steeple Chase’ Phase, which is now excluded from most major competitions to bring them in line with the Olympic standard.

Indiana Pi Bill

Sunday, March 14, 2010

The Indiana Pi Bill is the popular name for bill #246 of the 1897 sitting of the Indiana General Assembly, one of the most famous attempts to establish scientific truth by legislative fiat. Despite that name, the main result claimed by the bill is a method to square the circle, rather than to establish a certain value for π, although the bill does contain text that appears to dictate various incorrect values of π, such as 3.2.

The bill never became law, due to the intervention of a mathematics professor who happened to be present in the legislature.

The impossibility of squaring the circle using only compass and straightedge, suspected since ancient times, was rigorously proven in 1882 by Ferdinand von Lindemann. Better approximations of π than those inferred from the bill have been known since ancient times.

No point in having a speedometer and a tachometer

Friday, July 31, 2009

This is what a tachometer looks like. Read an interesting article at Stock Car Science that talks about the science behind. The divisions on the gauge are 100 rpm. If the driver can read the gauge to 100 rpm, for a typical gear ratio (i.e. let’s say a 1.45:1 second gear and a 4.22 rear end gear), each 100 rpm step on the tach corresponds (for 82.1 inch circumference tires) to 1.37 mph. If you assume that the driver can read the tach to 50 rpm, that’s 0.64 mph. So for a driver, there’s really no point in having a speedometer and a tachometer. Now that Qrodo is going to be used to broadcast motor sports you will see more information about motor sports.

Mobile Broadband

Wednesday, October 1, 2008

Mobile broadband providers Teliasonera, 3, Orange, Telefonica, Telecom Italia, T-Mobile and Vodafone; computer companies  Asus, Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba and Microsoft; mobil chip gigants Qualcomm and Ericsson has joined forces in branding “Mobile Broadband Service Mark”.

Omnipresent wireless broadband is a key catalyst for Qrodo expansion. Events like bouldering, skiing, motor hillclimbing or anything in rural areas can easily be lifecasted via qrodo as long as a resonable reliable 150-200 Kbit/s up-link is established. According to the telco organisation GSMA there are today more than 55 milion subscribers to mobile broadband in 91 countries. The growth rate is 4 milion subscribers a month.
