• Logging in Transylvania

    Even in the remotest areas of Transylvania you will find intensive logging activity. The timber trade is one of the largest industries in Romania and if managed properly could bring in a sustainable source of revenue. One way of determining responsible forest management is by monitoring the numbers of rare species such as lynx, wolf and bear. http://www.wildtransylvania.com/p/brown-bear.html

    Travis Walton is an American logger who was taken aboard a UFO on November 5, 1975, while working with a logging crew in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest near Snowflake, Arizona. For five days, Walton could not be found, despite an intensive search by law enforcement officers and volunteers. The Walton case received considerable mainstream publicity and remains one of the best-known instances of alleged alien abduction. UFO historian Jerome Clark writes that “Few abduction reports have generated as much controversy” as the Walton case. It is furthermore one of the very few alien abduction cases with corroborative eyewitnesses.

He studied the latest water management practices, with the aim of increasing production on non-performing ground through innovative water management techniques. Greg manages the family farm in northern Tasmania, a 530 hectare intensive farming operation with a cropping program consisting of alkaloid poppies, onions, processing peas, potatoes and wheat. Also grown are an array of seed crops including carrot, beet, clover and ryegrass seed. To complement the cropping, a prime lamb trading operation turns out 7000–8000 head annually. With waterlogging a significant issue in the high rainfall zones of southern Australia, Greg’s studies focused on new and innovative ways to redu...

At the center of many of these systems we find Apache Kafka, the state of the art when it comes to storing and moving around large amounts of data. Kafka, together with Zookeeper, forms a large and complex system. But some of its unique properties like strong ordering and constant time read/write derive from its simple core data structure, the log. We'll briefly define what’s really a “log”, and how logs are at the core of many data stores. We’ll see how a fully functional log-based queue can be rather simple to implement, you can build it yourself, and in this talk I’ll show how I’ve been build...

The term usually refers to a bygone era (before 1945 in the United States) when hand tools were used in harvesting trees. Because of its historical ties, the term lumberjack has become ingrained in popular culture through folklore, mass media and spectator sports. The actual work was difficult, dangerous, intermittent, low-paying, and primitive in living conditions, but the men built a traditional culture that celebrated strength, masculinity, confrontation with danger, and resistance to modernization... Lumberjacks worked in lumber camps and often lived a migratory life, following timber harvesting jobs as they opened. Being a lumberjack was seasonal work. Lumberjacks were exclusively men. They usually lived in bunkhouses or tents. Common equipment included the axe and crosscut saw. Lumberjacks could be found wherever there were vast forests to be harvested and a demand for wood, most likely in Scandinavia, Canada, and parts of the United States. In the U.S., many lumberjacks were of Scandinavian ancestry, continuing the family tradition. American lumberjacks were first centered in northeastern states such as Maine and then followed the general westward migration on the continent to the Upper Midwest, and finally the Pacific Northwest. Stewart Holbrook documented the emergence and westward migration of the classic American lumberjack in his first book, Holy Old Mackinaw: A Natural History of the American Lumberjack, and often wrote colorfully about lumberjacks in his subsequent books, romanticizing them as hard-drinking, hard-working men. Logging camps were slowly phased out between World War II and the early 1960s as crews could by then be transported to remote logging sites in motor vehicles. The division of labor in lumber camps led to several specialized jobs on logging crews, such as whistle punk, chaser, and high climber. The whistle punk's job was to sound a whistle as a signal to the yarder operator controlling the movement of logs and act as a safety lookout, and a good whistle punk had to be alert and think fast as the safety of the others depended on him. The high climber (also known as a tree topper) used iron climbing hooks and rope to ascend a tall tree in the landing area of the logging site, where he would chop off limbs as he climbed, chop off the top of the tree, and finally attach pulleys and rigging to the tree so it could be used as a spar so logs could be skidded into the landing. High climbers and whistle punks were both phased out in the 1960s to early 1970s when portable steel towers replaced spar trees and radio equipment replaced steam whistles for communication. The chokersetters attached steel cables (or chokers) to downed logs so they could be dragged into the landing by the yarder. The chasers removed the chokers once the logs were at the landing. Chokersetters and chasers were often entry-level positions on logging crews, with more experienced loggers seeking to move up to more skill-intensive positions such as yarder operator and high climber, or supervisory positions such as hooktender. Despite the common perception that all loggers cut trees, the actual felling and bucking of trees were also specialized job positions done by fallers and buckers. Fallers and buckers were once two separate job titles but are now combined. During the era before modern diesel or gasoline powered equipment, what machinery existed was steam-powered, and animal- or steam-powered skidders could be used to haul harvested logs to nearby railroads for shipment to sawmills. Horse driven logging wheels was a means used for moving logs out of the woods. Another way for transporting logs to sawmills was to float them down a body of water or a specially-constructed log flume. Log rolling, the art of staying on top of a floating log while "rolling" the log by walking, was another skill much in demand among lumberjacks. Spiked boots known as "caulks" or "corks" were used for log rolling and often worn by lumberjacks as their regular footwear...

Fallers and buckers were once two separate job titles but are now combined... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Log_rolling Logrolling (log birling or just birling), is a sport that originated in the lumberjack/log driver tradition of the northeastern United States and Canada, involving logs in a river (traditionally) or other body of water. After bringing their logs downriver, the lumberjacks have a competition to see who can balance on a log the longest while it is still rolling in the river. The contest involves two lumberjacks, each on one end of a log floating in the river. One or the other starts "walking" (or "rolling") the log, and the other is forced to keep up. The contest involves attempting to stay on the log while attempting to cause the competitor to lose their balance and splash into the water...

The red pine were planted with white pine in the plantation in 1965. Most of the white pine, which weren't growing well, were harvested in 1980-81. The goal for the remaining red pine was to produce quality saw logs. The red pine continued to grow well, but it became apparent about six years ago that even with the removal of the white pine, the heavy stocking was causing a decline in diameter and crown size. It was obvious that a serious thinning was in order. At the same time a major invasives problem was noted, especially in the southern third of the stand. Buckthorn were prevalent along with some honeysuckle and barberry. Our forester recommended that the thinning be held off until the invasives were under control; the opening of the stand to more sunlight would exacerbate the spread of invasives even more. In September and October of the next four years, effort was put into controlling the invasives by hand pulling the smaller buckthorn and by foliar and cut stump spraying the bigger buckthorn, barberry and honeysuckle. These efforts, paid for in part with a WHIP (Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program) grant, were 75-90 percent successful each year, with the understanding that the buckthorn in particular would never be totally eliminated. This is so because of the nature of buckthorn itself (my experience) and the proximity of a great deal of well established buckthorn on a neighboring property. A decision was made to proceed with the thinning with the goal of harvesting at least half of the trees in the stand. In talking with our then forester about how this harvest would proceed and what the remaining stand would be like, the conclusion was reached that we would be better off to skip a thinning and instead harvest the entire stand. Red pine prices seemed reasonable given the sorry timber market, so a contract was drafted and Jack Bell, of Long View Forest Contracting, was shown the stand along with parts of adjacent white pine stands that might be included in a harvest. We let neighbors know that a harvest was in the works, and support was secured from the two neighbors who owned the access road to the red pine stand. In early April a contract with Long View was signed, and immediately thereafter a landing area was decided upon and improvements to the access road (a former town road) were made. The improvements included ditching and the placement of a temporary bridge over a seasonal stream. The harvest then began and was carried out over about a six week period by logger Rod Lampe with his Harvester. Some of the white pine were felled with a chainsaw, being in a stand where special care needed to be taken be save as many young white pine (that had regenerated from an earlier shelterwood cut) as possible. The logs throughout the harvest area were removed by a forwarder and stacked on Elysian Hills land along a town trail. The work was machine intensive and not man-labor intensive. The harvest went smoothly and quickly. The site and plantation were ideal for Rod's machine. He was able to cut each red pine to length, limb it, and stack it in less than two minutes, or so it seemed. These were trees 10-12" dbh, some even larger. With the crowns being as small as they were and the machine doing what it was designed to do, the resulting slash was minimal. There were also four cords of hardwood and 200 tons of white pine pulp. The red pine went to a Canadian mill. Its value after the logging and trucking was $40 a thousand and the white pine $80 a thousand, making it a minimally profitable venture given the 35 years of the plantation's life and the management work and time that went into it. We're now looking forward to the stand's regeneration. With white pine on the north, east and west borders and the remaining white pine near the stand's center, it's likely that white pine will take hold. This past year was also a good seed year for white pine. The site is clean and manageable enough to control any new buckthorn or other invasives that appear. This is something I did not envision when the harvest was first thought of and planned. I have to confess that I'm still getting used to the openness in the area harvested. The views from the log roads and trails that pass by it are considerably different!

I chose to create a video illustrating deforestation around the world and closer to home. It starts as an informational video that calls the viewer to action. The video explains what qualifies a forest. In addition it explains what deforestation is and the qualifications. The video includes graphic images to illustrate what deforestation is and its effects. It illustrates that main types of deforestation; subsistence agriculture, intensive agriculture, logging and ranching. It is explained in the video where these types of deforestation are present, focusing on the main areas of deforestation; Southeast Asia, Latin America and Africa. About halfway through it hones in to the United States. The video explains how the United States forests have transitioned since colonization in 1620. There are maps illustrating these changes as well as pie charts to make that data easily understood to a non-technical audience. There is information about the United States production, consumption and importation of timber to further illustrate the overabundance of usage of wood products. Finally, the video illustrates the negative impacts deforestation is having currently. The list includes loss of biodiversity, climate change and soil erosion and degradation. The last couple minutes of the video calls the viewer to action, asking what you do currently that is contributing to the issue and offers simple options to help.

http://rockstartriathleteacademy.com/triathlontraininglog/ Most triathletes keep some kind of triathlon training log. Yours might be a scrappy old notebook in your gym bag. It could be a computer spreadsheet. It might be a slick online interface. Perhaps it's even some special program on your mobile phone. Regardless of how you keep your triathlon training log, the Rock Star Triathlete Academy, at http://www.rockstartriathleteacademy.com/triathlontraininglog, has some tips on crucial do's and don'ts for your triathlon training log. 1. Do Keep A Log. Even if you're the type of person who likes to "live free as a type B", you must has some method of being able to look back at your training when you get sick or injured, or you have a breakthrough performance, and see what got you there in the first place! Face it...your memory simply cannot keep track of multiple weeks of swimming, cycling, running, cross-training and nutrition. 2. Do Record Your Diet. Nutrition and training are intimately related. Inadequate protein consumption can cause overtraining. Enough carbohdyrate consumption can get your muscles chock full of storage energy for a stellar performance. Too much dietary fat might cause bloating at a key race. By having the ability to look back at your triathlon training log and see how your diet affected your performance, you're giving yourself a big advantage. 3. Don't Be Rigid. The term "adaptive training" refers to your ability to adapt your training to accommodate social obligations, injuries, running out of daylight, or finding out your best buddies are going on a fun bike ride over the weekend. If your triathlon training log, like many triathletes, is combined with your actual schedule, don't be afraid to break out of the mold and be flexible when necessary. While you shouldn't have randomly haphazard training, you should also be flexible enough with your planning and logging to make changes when life happens. Otherwise, triathlon will become more of a "job" and less of a "hobby". 4. Don't Throw Away Old Logs. You never know when your little brother or best friend might want to do a triathlon that you did two or three or ten times back in the day. If you can whip out your old triathlon training logs and offer them as a helpful tool for a friend or loved one, they're going to think you're the greatest thing since sliced cheese. 5. Do Include Stress and Sleep. Not only do stress levels (i.e. 1-10) and sleep levels (number of hours) directly affect your training and appetite, but so do other variables such as morning heart rate, daily weight and motivation to train. Whether it's on a notebook, computer or phone, the best triathlon training log will have a small allowance somewhere to let you include these variables for you or your coach. Now that you have a grasp on your ideal triathlon training log, you should go to http://www.rockstartriathleteacademy.com/triathlontraininglog and check out the online triathlon training school run by Kerry Sullivan and Ben Greenfield! With race season heating up, you'll get practical tips and tricks for every element, including the ability to tell Kerry and Ben exactly what you want in the audios, articles and videos!

Travis Walton is an American logger who was taken aboard a UFO on November 5, 1975, while working with a logging crew in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest near Snowflake, Arizona. For five days, Walton could not be found, despite an intensive search by law enforcement officers and volunteers. The Walton case received considerable mainstream publicity and remains one of the best-known instances of alleged alien abduction. UFO historian Jerome Clark writes that “Few abduction reports have generated as much controversy” as the Walton case. It is furthermore one of the very few alien abduction cases with corroborative eyewitnesses.

Greg Gibson, from Hagley in Tasmania, was awarded a 2014 Nuffield Scholarship, supported by the Sidney Myer Fund. He studied the latest water management practices, with the aim of increasing production on non-performing ground through innovative water management techniques. Greg manages the family farm in northern Tasmania, a 530 hectare intensive farming operation with a cropping program consisting of alkaloid poppies, onions, processing peas, potatoes and wheat. Also grown are an array of seed crops including carrot, beet, clover and ryegrass seed. To complement the cropping, a prime lamb trading operation turns out 7000–8000 head annually. With waterlogging a significant issue in the high rainfall zones of southern Australia, Greg’s studies focused on new and innovative ways to reduce it’s affects. “We cannot continue to spend resources on ground that is not producing — bringing non-performing ground into production through better water management and soil health is my goal. I wanted a better understanding of water management, including Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI), soil moisture monitoring and drainage”, he explains. Greg was particularly interested in utilising a complete systematic approach to water management. He travelled to the USA, Canada and Europe during his travels.

As applications become more data-intensive and with the rise of event based architectures, terms like stream processing, ETL and data integration, become normal vocabulary for many organizations. At the center of many of these systems we find Apache Kafka, the state of the art when it comes to storing and moving around large amounts of data. Kafka, together with Zookeeper, forms a large and complex system. But some of its unique properties like strong ordering and constant time read/write derive from its simple core data structure, the log. We'll briefly define what’s really a “log”, and how logs are at the core of many data stores. We’ll see how a fully functional log-based queue can be rather simple to implement, you can build it yourself, and in this talk I’ll show how I’ve been building my own. We’ll walk through the basic building blocks required to implement a pub/sub queue around a log. Segments, data indexes, offset management, etc. While I demo NetLog (netlog.io), my attempt to create a lightweight and easy-to-use log-based message queue in Go. And BigLog, its building blocks library that you can use to create your own queue.

Silent. Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lumberjack Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ A lumberjack is a worker in the logging industry who performs the initial harvesting and transport of trees for ultimate processing into forest products. The term usually refers to a bygone era (before 1945 in the United States) when hand tools were used in harvesting trees. Because of its historical ties, the term lumberjack has become ingrained in popular culture through folklore, mass media and spectator sports. The actual work was difficult, dangerous, intermittent, low-paying, and primitive in living conditions, but the men built a traditional culture that celebrated strength, masculinity, confrontation with danger, and resistance to modernization... Lumberjacks worked in lumber camps and often lived a migratory life, following timber harvesting jobs as they opened. Being a lumberjack was seasonal work. Lumberjacks were exclusively men. They usually lived in bunkhouses or tents. Common equipment included the axe and crosscut saw. Lumberjacks could be found wherever there were vast forests to be harvested and a demand for wood, most likely in Scandinavia, Canada, and parts of the United States. In the U.S., many lumberjacks were of Scandinavian ancestry, continuing the family tradition. American lumberjacks were first centered in northeastern states such as Maine and then followed the general westward migration on the continent to the Upper Midwest, and finally the Pacific Northwest. Stewart Holbrook documented the emergence and westward migration of the classic American lumberjack in his first book, Holy Old Mackinaw: A Natural History of the American Lumberjack, and often wrote colorfully about lumberjacks in his subsequent books, romanticizing them as hard-drinking, hard-working men. Logging camps were slowly phased out between World War II and the early 1960s as crews could by then be transported to remote logging sites in motor vehicles. The division of labor in lumber camps led to several specialized jobs on logging crews, such as whistle punk, chaser, and high climber. The whistle punk's job was to sound a whistle as a signal to the yarder operator controlling the movement of logs and act as a safety lookout, and a good whistle punk had to be alert and think fast as the safety of the others depended on him. The high climber (also known as a tree topper) used iron climbing hooks and rope to ascend a tall tree in the landing area of the logging site, where he would chop off limbs as he climbed, chop off the top of the tree, and finally attach pulleys and rigging to the tree so it could be used as a spar so logs could be skidded into the landing. High climbers and whistle punks were both phased out in the 1960s to early 1970s when portable steel towers replaced spar trees and radio equipment replaced steam whistles for communication. The chokersetters attached steel cables (or chokers) to downed logs so they could be dragged into the landing by the yarder. The chasers removed the chokers once the logs were at the landing. Chokersetters and chasers were often entry-level positions on logging crews, with more experienced loggers seeking to move up to more skill-intensive positions such as yarder operator and high climber, or supervisory positions such as hooktender. Despite the common perception that all loggers cut trees, the actual felling and bucking of trees were also specialized job positions done by fallers and buckers. Fallers and buckers were once two separate job titles but are now combined. During the era before modern diesel or gasoline powered equipment, what machinery existed was steam-powered, and animal- or steam-powered skidders could be used to haul harvested logs to nearby railroads for shipment to sawmills. Horse driven logging wheels was a means used for moving logs out of the woods. Another way for transporting logs to sawmills was to float them down a body of water or a specially-constructed log flume. Log rolling, the art of staying on top of a floating log while "rolling" the log by walking, was another skill much in demand among lumberjacks. Spiked boots known as "caulks" or "corks" were used for log rolling and often worn by lumberjacks as their regular footwear...
