Goodbye Flickr, Hello SmugMug!

As useful as Flickr has been for posting photographs, we at CameraArts have decided to overhaul our Photos of the Month competition. The good folks at SmugMug will be hosting from now on, and they have gone so far as to provide free subscriptions to our winners! To find out about how you can submit and see your image immediately,
read our updated rules here.
 blog it
The CameraArts Community is our gateway at SmugMug, and I encourage you all to sign up for SmugMug and join. Fresh submissions are posted at this gallery until the end of the month. Until that happens, anyone can give any image a one-time rating.
Simply hover over the image with your cursor and give it a "thumbs up" or a "thumbs down." The makers of the three most popular photos will be declared at the end of the month. It should be noted that SmugMug's popularity system applies to the entire directory, not just the CameraArts Community. This is a great chance to get exposure, and to score a free SmugMug account, along with our other great prizes!

Just as before, with Flickr, you do not need to be signed up with SmugMug to enter.
Simply click here, attach your photo to the email, and type "hello2403" in the subject line. You must type your name and email address in the email message body. If you would like to leave a description, type it below your name. If not, simply leave it blank.

We will keep posting new entries here at The CameraArts Blog. The only difference is that we will post every entry we receive, not just the five from every week that we have chosen. This means that judging all entries will be in the hands of our readers.

A Whale of a Time Capsule

Category: Animalia ⢠Wow!
Posted on: June 14, 2007 5:03 PM, by "GrrlScientist"

This bomb lance fragment, patented in 1879, was removed from the neck of a male bowhead whale, Balaena mysticetus, killed near Barrow, Alaska, in May 2007. The shiny scars are the result of a chain saw cut.

Here's an interesting twist to a sad story: In May of this year, eskimos killed a 49-foot male bowhead whale, Balaena mysticetus, off the coast of Alaska and unexpectedly discovered that he had survived a similar hunt more than a century ago. While butchering the whale's body with a chainsaw, they found that he was carrying a 3 1/2-inch arrow-shaped bomb lance fragment (top) that was embedded 13 centimenters under the blubber in his neck, providing researchers with rare insight into this individual's age, which was estimated to be between 115 and 130 years old.

quoted:"The recent discovery of a 19th-century bomb lance in a bowhead whale suggests that this species can live well over 100 years. The bowhead whale was hunted to near extinction in its native Arctic and subarctyic waters for its thick layer of blubber, oil and baleen."
"Scientists calculate a whale's age by chemically analyzing the amino acids in the animal's eye lenses. Individual amino acids accumulate structural changes in whales' eye lenses making them cloudier as they age. Experts mentioned that even though it's unusual to find a whale that is more than a century old, several bowheads have been found that were close to 200 years old. Based on what is known about the bomb lance fragment, this individual was estimated to be roughly 130 years old, so it would have been born in 1877."

Why We Need Electric Cars, Part I
June 14, 2007

Posted by Innovation Catalyst in Energy Tech, Creative Thinking Techniques, Electric Cars, Creativity, Innovation, Business.

Electricity is generated by a more diversified portfolio of energy sources - coal, natural gas, oil, nuclear, hydroelectric and even small amounts of wind and solar.  But because the plant-to-wheels efficiency of the electric car is in the neighborhood of 30-35% - inefficiencies are distributed fairly evenly across the process - it takes a lot less energy to make the electric car move than it takes for a gasoline equivalent.  

At the same time, solar thermal and solar photovoltaic technologies are maturing and will result in an even further drop in non-renewable energy usage. 
To summarize: of the three paths, the electron economy has the most potential and the liabilities are the easiest to mitigate.

Quoted:"To summarize: of the three paths, the electron economy has the most potential and the liabilities are the easiest to mitigate. Biofuels can serve as a bridging factor that help us achieve energy independence, but when DCFCs become practical the majority of biofuel feedstocks should be shifted to carbon production.

Part II will discuss improvements at the other end of the plant-to-wheels energy chain - innovations in battery technology."
