COMPONENTS OF YOUR LCD TV SCREEN
1.Polarizing filter film with a vertical axis to polarize light as it enters.
2.Glass substrate with ITO electrodes. The shapes of these electrodes will determine the shapes that will appear when the LCD is switched ON. Vertical ridges etched on the surface are smooth.
3.Twisted nematic liquid crystal.
4.Glass substrate with common electrode film (ITO) with horizontal ridges to line up with the horizontal filter.
5.Polarizing filter film with a horizontal axis to block/pass light.
6.Reflective surface to send light back to viewer. (In a backlit LCD, this layer is replaced with a light source.)

TYPES OF CLOUDS
There are different types of clouds. Each has a different altitude and appearance.
1.Cirrus Clouds
These are the most common high altitude (above 18,000 feet) clouds. They are thin, wispy, and made of ice. They are usually white, and kids can use them to predict fair to pleasant weather.

2.Cirrostratus Clouds
These are sheet-like, cover the sky, and usually appear 12-24 hours before rain. While they cover the sky, the sun can still be seen through them.

3.Cirrocumulus Clouds
These appear as small puffs in a long row covering the sky — almost like the scales of a fish. They’re usually seen in the winter and indicate fair, but very cold, weather.

4.Altostratus Clouds
These mid-level (6,500-18,000 feet) clouds are gray or blue-gray, and are made up of ice crystals and water droplets. They fill the whole sky and usually form just ahead of continuous rain or snow.

5.Altocumulus Clouds
These are gray puffy masses made up of water droplets. They form in groups, and when you see them in the mornings in the summertime, prepare for thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening.

6.Stratus Clouds
These cover the sky like fog that doesn’t reach the ground, are gray, and produce a light drizzle or mist.

7.Stratocumulus Clouds
These clouds are low, puffy, and gray. They form in rows with blue sky showing through, and rarely produce rain.

8.Nimbostratus Clouds
These are wet looking and dark gray. They form in a layer that produces steady falling rain.

9.Cumulus Clouds
White and puffy, these look like cotton candy and indicate fair weather. These clouds can eventually tower upwards to form cumulonimbus clouds.

10.Cumulonimbus Clouds
These are thunderstorm clouds. High winds flatten the top of them. These clouds produce heavy rain, hail, thunder, lightning, and can even develop into tornadoes.

Fun with ice and water
Make your ice grow
First
you need to place some unopened bottles of water in your freezer and leave them there for about 2 hours and 45 minutes…

You can color the water first if you would like to make colored ice grow. I tried it both ways with the same success. Be sure to seal the bottle closed tightly before placing them in your freezer. Set your bottles flat in the freezer like I have here for best results…

After the 2 hours and 45 minutes, your water should still look like water and not be frozen. The photo below is too frozen…

Gently take your super icy cold water out of the freezer and handle very gently. Don’t shake, knock, or jar the bottle or your water will now turn into ice before you are ready. Set out a tub of ice (you need to use a container that will allow for plenty of water overflow so a bigger container might be better than the cup you see here). Then pour a steady stream of water over the ice and you will see the ice begin to grow. You can do this on one ice cube or a bunch of ice cubes…

Keep the stream of water going. Move it around a bit as your ice grows taller and grow more ice around your container. You can create as many ice towers (or castles) as you like until your bottle runs out of water or your container starts to get too full and spill out onto the floor! By keeping the water pouring in one spot, your ice will grow…

and grow…

And grow!

Why is liquid ammonia used in ice plants?
Liquid ammonia acts as a refrigerant in ice plants. Evaporation of a liquid needs heat energy. When liquid ammonia vapourizes, it absorbs large quantities of heat without changing its temperature. For these reasons, ammonia is widely used as a refrigerant. About 17 g of liquid ammonia absorbs 5,700 calories of heat from the surrounding water. This cools the water and ultimately freezes it to ice.

बैंकाक । बैंकाक हवाई अड्डे पर दुनिया का सबसे तेज वाईफाई सेवा उपलब्ध है। यहां इसकी स्पीड 41.45 एमबीपीएस (मेगा बाइट पर सेकेंड) है। यह जानकारी शनिवार को जारी एक नए अध्ययन में दी गई है।
यह अध्ययन स्पीड-टेस्ट वेबसाइट रोट्टेनवाईफाई डॉट कॉम ने किया है। वेबसाइट ने दुनिया भर के 130 हवाई अड्डे पर वाईफाई की गुणवत्ता और स्पीड की जांच की। अध्ययन में परिणाम दर्शाया गया है। परिणाम में बैंकाक का सुवर्णभूमि हवाई अड्डा शीर्ष स्थान पर है। वाईफाई स्पीड के शीर्ष 10 में से पांच यूरोप के, दो अमेरिका के और तीन एशिया के हवाई अड्डे हैं।
सुवर्णभूमि हवाई अड्डे पर वाईफाई की स्पीड चट्टानूगा, टेनेसी हवाई अड्डों की गति से कहीं आगे है। इन हवाई अड्डों पर वाईफाई की स्पीड 30.99 मेगाबाइट प्रति सैकेंड है। डबलिन, आयरलैंड में 19.45 एमपीबीएस, विलनियुस, लिथुआनिया में 18.04 एमपीबीएस और हेल्सिंकी में 17.46 एमबीपीएस स्पीड है। ये हवाई अड्डे पांच तीव्र वाईफाई स्पीड वालों में गिने गए हैं। एशिया के दो हवाई अड्डों में बाली का नग्रह राय अंतरराष्ट्रीय हवाई अड्डा छठे स्थान पर और ताइवान का काओहसिउंग अंतरराष्ट्रीय हवाई अड्डा सातवें स्थान पर है।

In a proud and noble tradition stretching back a whole two years, NASA yesterday did Black Hole Friday, rather than just flogging a few Apollo mini-figs for 25 percent off. We got science, we got knowledge, and of course, a bunch of jaw-dropping images of black holes. Here are the best.

The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of him, and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept. "I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it" she said. "I think that's what he would have wanted".

Not sure what is more honorable: Being married to this faithful wife to the end or the Marine standing next to the casket watching over them both.

Every day - at the same time - she waits for him. Sometimes she barks to call him. He comes; they rub and greet each other and they go for a walk. They have done this for 5 years and no, they don’t belong to the same owners.

The owners didn’t know until neighbors seeing them together so frequently commented to the cat’s owner, who then followed the dog home which was a distance away - not in a house close or next door. How it started no one knows
