(EN) – Rock Climbing Techniques | Rock & Ice

Learning to free climb—to pull and step on only the rock’s natural holds, never using equipment as an aid—is liberating and exhilarating. When you discover how to bear down on edges, stick to slopers or relax in a handjam, you’ll be stoked.

Though no text could ever substitute for experience, here is an outline of basic movement techniques to help you get going. Learning to free climb is as natural as climbing a tree, but doing it well is a long process. Learn to move efficiently in the vertical realm and you will be rewarded with a lifetime of challenges.

You can broadly divide free climbing into two categories, face and crack climbing, although you will often use combinations of both. Cracks are the most obvious lines of weakness on cliffs, but the techniques to climb them are not as evident as in face climbing. Climbing technique comes down to linking basic foot, hand and body positions into a flowing, upward motion. The basic positions are easily outlined, but the infinite number of permutations complicates the free-climbing experience. Each climb is a Rubik’s Cube with an infinite number of ways to be unlocked, which is why climbing is so beautiful, interesting and addictive.

(EN) – Pants Rise Explained, Low vs. High vs. Regular | BROCK MCGOFF

When it comes to clothing, men have a fairly simple sizing system. Take pants, for example: We get to choose inseam length and waist size. Many women, whose logic-defying sizing system goes all the way down to size 0, would consider us lucky.

The problem is, like women, men’s bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and our trusty length/waist measurements aren’t always the best way to determine if something fits properly.

For pants, one of the most important aspects of fit is rise. This article explains what rise is, how it’s measured and why it shouldn’t be overlooked. I’ll also discuss why low rise pants, though popular, are often inappropriate.

Common Violin Terms

NOTE: Musicians can argue endlessly about these meanings, and indeed, many of these definitions are at least partly dependant on the stylistic practices of any given era, or even a specific composer. I will attempt to be as non-controversial as possible. This is, of course, by no means a complete list.

(EN) – Joints and Skeletal Movement | OpenStax CNX

The point at which two or more bones meet is called a joint, or articulation. Joints are responsible for movement, such as the movement of limbs, and stability, such as the stability found in the bones of the skull.

Classification of Joints on the Basis of Structure

There are two ways to classify joints: on the basis of their structure or on the basis of their function. The structural classification divides joints into bony, fibrous, cartilaginous, and synovial joints depending on the material composing the joint and the presence or absence of a cavity in the joint.

(ES) – Agujas de máquina según el tipo de tela y el hilo | El Rincon De Celestecielo

Las agujas de coser son filamentos delgados rectos, fabricadas de diferentes materiales, entre ellos están el hierro, el aluminio, el acero y el más conocido el acero inoxidable. Las más favorables y de último uso en la industria de las agujas son las de acero especial con aleación de titanio y de cromo. Se les suele añadir pequeñas cantidades de titanio a algunos tipos de aceros para evitar el oxido, afinar y permitir más resistencia. Algunas agujas traen la aleación en la punta. Las agujas de coser a máquina sirven para unir dos o más telas mediante hilos que van enhebrados uno por la parte superior, terminando en el ojo de la aguja de la máquina y el otro por la parte inferior en una bobina o carreta que es incrustada en un porta bobina. Esta costura se produce por el movimiento de los diferentes tipos de mecanismos de la máquina que hacen este trabajo posible, mediante un pedal que mueve un motor.

(EN) – Understanding Shoe Construction: Goodyear Welt, Blake Stitch, & Cementing | TANNER GUZY

As a quick disclaimer, this is a post for the menswear nerds. It’s a heavier, more detailed article that breaks into a lot of the technical details about the differences between quality and cheap shoes. If you’re looking for a quick guide on how to find and buy a certain style of shoes or even which styles are appropriate for given scenarios, we suggest trying some of our other articles.Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a pair of shoes that cost $100 and those that cost $1000. While elements such as quality of leather, name brand, and country of construction are all factors, the largest differentiator is the quality of the construction.By construction, I mean the method through which the sole is attached to the upper of the shoe. For the sake of reference, here’s a quick breakdown of all the major players in a shoe’s anatomy.

(EN) – Shoes Part 1: Construction | The Shoe Snob Blog

The world of shoes is a vast one. There are many different terms to describe not only the shoe’s style name, but also the manner in which it was made as well as the small details that you find on the shoe’s surface and it’s core. And while some of this knowledge might be trivial to many of you, I know that there still are many people who do not know (or confuse) the differences in construction of shoes, as well as their style names, such wing-tip vs. brogues vs. cap toes etc. So, to appease the request of others, I will go through them in a brief yet concise manner, but also leave you with detailed descriptions provided by other blogs & articles, that have explained more thoroughly the differences in shoe construction. For today’s discussions, I will go through some of the different shoe constructions and what I think about them. Next week, I will go through each of the shoe’s style names and will leave it open for commentary on what you would like to learn about in week 3.

(EN) – Antique Tractors: Terms and Terminology | Yesterday’s Tractors

One stumbling block to working on a tractor and sometimes even using it is that the terminology can be perplexing. For those of you that grew up with internal combustion engines and maybe even tractors it may be hard to relate to the need for covering the basics at this level. But for those that have grown up in the last thirty years (and not with a shop handy) when the prevailing opinion was “Don’t do it yourself”, even the basic systems of the engine may have many foreign terms. Couple this attitude with the fact that older tractors may have engine components that have not been present on automobiles and trucks for nearly forty years, and you end up having to deal with instructions that may as well be written in a foreign language. Manuals often expect that you are already acquainted with these terms or you would not be working on your machine.

(EN) – Archaeologically attested cordage | André J. Veldmeijer

Eras Journal – Veldmeijer, A.:Archaeologically attested cordage. Terminology on the basis of the material from Ptolemaic and Roman Berenike (Egyptian Red Sea coast)

The idea of cordage as a separate category of small finds, and the presence of a specialist in it, is a phenomenon that is not often encountered on archaeological excavations. Yet the important role of cordage in society (ancient and modern alike) should allow for such a specialism to be included in archaeological research. The fact that cordage is used to tie, whether it be goats to a gels , meat and fish to a wooden crossbeam or secure the cargo in a ship, is common knowledge, and equally well-known is the fact that sailing inevitably involves the use of cordage. But, for instance, the fact that some ships in ancient Egypt, and indeed in other parts of the world, were and even up to the present day are built literally by ‘sewing’ the various parts together is one less universally known.

(EN) (PDF) – Manual of Basic Techniques for a Health Laboratory | World Health Organization

This manual is intended for use mainly in medical laboratories in developing countries. It is designed particularly for use in peripheral laboratories in such countries (i.e. in small or medium-sized laboratories attached to regional hospitals) and in dispensaries and rural health centres where the laboratory technician often has to work alone. The language used has been kept as simple as possible although common technical terms are employed when necessary.

The manual describes examination procedures that can be carried out with a microscope or other simple apparatus. Such procedures include the following: — the examination of stools for helminth eggs; — the examination of blood for malaria parasites; — the examination of sputum for tubercle bacilli; — the examination of urine for bile pigments; — the examination of blood for determination of the white cell (leukocyte) type number fraction (differential leukocyte count) — the examination of blood for determination of the glucose concentration.

The intention is to provide an account of basic laboratory techniques that are useful to peripheral laboratories and can be carried out with a limited range of basic equipment. Some laboratories may not be able to perform all the procedures described. For example, a laboratory in a rural health centre may not be able to carry out certain blood chemistry or serological tests.

We need to emphasize to our customers the importance of product knowledge. It is not enough to simply highlight the beauty, uniqueness, and versatility of our fabrics, but we also need to make sure that the customer is aware of the properties and characteristics of the fabrics we carry.

It is the designer’s responsibility to select the appropriate fabrics for their intended applications, but it is the responsibility of the Maxwell rep to provide as much information as possible to help our customers make correct fabric selections. Often times, customers who are unaware of a fabric’s construction and natural properties believe those qualities are !aws or have failed expectations of how a fabric should perform, and therefore be used.

We have compiled this brief ‘cheat sheet’ to help you explain some common characteristics of fabrics, care information, and textile glossary, to relay to our customers. In addition to this, every rep must review the list of relevant information listed on the back liner of each collection with their customers when showing the new product.

(TOOL) (PDF) – The Worlds of Langston Hughes, Modernism and Translation in the Americas | Kutzinski, V. M.

The poet Langston Hughes was a tireless world traveler and a prolific writer, translator, and editor. Translations of his own writings traveled even more widely than he did, earning him adulation throughout Europe, Asia, and especially the Americas.

This study contends that, for writers who are part of the African diaspora, translation is more than just a literary practice: it is a fact of life and a way of thinking. “Kutzinski has given us one of the very best analyses and evaluations of Hughes’s seminal texts. We observe him at work translating, but we also see his works being translated. Kutzinski, a preeminent polylingual comparativist who knows the literatures of the African diaspora as well as anyone, brings a keen understanding of both race and ethnicity to her overarching discussion. She has written an exemplary work, which will be widely influential.”—John Lowe, Louisiana State University
