Packing Your Festival Essentials Even though Christmas is more than 7 months away, and is one of the furthest things from most Long Islanders" minds, but this cold and dreary weather this week has me thinking of happier times while wearing a sweater... Fishing is another popular pastime in Lorne. Beach fishing can be good but most anglers seem to prefer the Lorne pier where you can catch just about anything. Whiting and Flathead are a common catch and in winter you can get on to a school of Snapper. Squid can also be caught by jigging at the end of the pier. If you don"t have any luck there is no need to worry because the local fishing co-op is right near the pier and they do sport wristbands very good fish and chips.

KEN STRINGFELLOW: I love a couple bands I worked with recently--Oh, Libia! from Spain, who are like freaked out Apples In Stereo; and Hanggai, from Beijing, who mix Mongolian folk music with rock and indie sounds. The Black Weirdo Tour began in Austin, Texas where the group performed for the city"s annual, South By South West festival wristbands. Next on the list was a trip to California where the duo performed two shows. Now they"re here in Toronto for a 3 day performance set. It"s been more than a decade from the time when that first Funk Fest was performed, the event wristbands has blossomed into a 5 city annual event that attracts more than 10,000 people per city and is expected to invade a total of 15 cities by 2015. Funk Fest can be seen in Atlanta GA, Memphis TN, St. Petersburg/Tampa FL, Jacksonville FL, and now in Orlando FL. It may fall on any day during May depend on which calendar year. If you"re at Kuching during this period, visit the Buddhist temples, the place that the crowds are gathered on this special occasion. The rhyme does go into strange details about the horse, that most of it is made of hay or straw. Unless this is a metaphor for tangled hair it unlikely that this was a real horse, I should imagine... Maybe the rhyme came from a toy horse. The hay is described as "pounce" which I haven"t heard used as an adjective, and draw a blank.

BEIJING -- Chinese researchers are celebrating a breakthrough in the development of an unmanned semi-submersible vehicle that can launch a rocket to perform weather observations at sea.

Developed by the Institute of Atmospheric Physics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the unmanned submersible has passed a series of river and sea trials and successfully launched instrument-carrying rockets to obtain meteorological data in real-time over a wide area of the ocean that previously could not be monitored by traditional methods.

The results were recently published in the journal Advances in Atmospheric Sciences as a cover story.

According to lead author Chen Hongbin, traditional observation platforms to obtain meteorological and oceanographic data are ships, buoys, satellites and aircraft. However, they have limitations, such as high costs, poor endurance and inflexibility. The data collected by these platforms is always patchy and unreliable for research.

In 2016, to obtain long-term and real-time data, especially in remote areas or under severe sea conditions, researchers developed a new autonomous marine meteorological observation platform. It is an unmanned navigation vessel that can travel submerged, with only the equipment compartment exposed above the waterline. Such a structure can minimize the effect of waves on the vehicle, making it very stable, said Chen.

From May 2016 to May 2017, researchers conducted a series of trials, including launching meteorological rockets that can fly up to 8,000 meters into the atmosphere. They obtained real-time data including sea surface temperature, humidity, wind speed and wind direction, which are important for ocean research.

The structure and performance of the unmanned semi-submersible vehicle have been validated by these trials.

"The unmanned semi-submersible vehicle is an ideal platform for marine meteorological environmental monitoring, and the atmospheric information provided by the weather rockets launched from this platform can improve the accuracy of numerical weather forecasts at sea and in coastal zones," co-author of the study Li Jun said.
