Photonic Travel: Riding on a Beam of Light

Photonic Travel: Riding on a Beam of Light


This short technical paper describes the technology that will be used to colonize distant planets in other solar systems. It is the most efficient form of transportation that is possible utilizing physical matter. A 5 watt laser pulse can be used to “push” a vehicle from Earth to Mars in about 12 minutes, at the speed of light. The passengers, however, do not feel any g-forces because they are essentially massless. The technology is described along with the mathematical considerations. Suggestions for further research are made. Each reader must comprehend that our universe is literally blinking at about 1 trillion times each second. For those unconvinced that our universe is blinking – please see the related ebook, “The First Periodic Table for Elementary Particles.”ATTENTION: GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND THEIR CONTRACTORS: Theft of Intellectual Property and violation of copyright are serious matters.

Harley Davidson Boots Women’s 83542 Black Shelby Leather Riding Boots

Harley Davidson Boots Women’s 83542 Black Shelby Leather Riding Boots


They say you can judge someone’s personality by the boots they wear. If this is true, then when people look down at your feet and see that you’re wearing these Harley Davidson Women’s 83542 Shelby Black Leather Motorcycle Boots, they’ll see that you’re a strong, independent, stylish woman with discerning taste.Made with leather uppers, these black leather boots have a motorcycle design, featuring a round toe. The round toe gives these Harley Davidson Shelby boots a softer-look and is more comfortable to wear. Your toes will have a bit of wiggle room, as opposed to pointy-toe shoes that offer little to no room. Twin buckle straps add a bit of style and function. In addition to adding visual appeal to the motorcycle boots, the buckles are adjustable so you can tailor the fit around your calves for a tighter or looser fit and feel. Inside, you’ll welcome the cushioning insert. Your feet will thank you for giving them a pillow-like surface to rest on all day.A lot of women’s riding boots can be a little tricky to get on. Ever have “stomping foot syndrome?” You know, where you repeatedly try to stomp your foot into each boot. How about the “grab and hop?” That’s where you put your foot halfway into your boot, grab the shaft and hop around trying to get your foot inside all the way. You won’t have to stomp or hop anymore if you’re in these women’s Harley Boots. The inside zipper ensures an easy slip-on construction. In addition, the smooth lining helps your feet glide inside these side-zip boots much easier.The 1 1/2-inch heel on these women’s motorcycle boots gives you just enough lift. They’re not so flat that you’ll feel like you’re walking barefoot, and they’re not so high that you’re afraid you’ll topple over. Speaking of toppling over, the traction heel gives you some great gripping ability. Lightweight and flexible, the cement construction of these Harley Davidson boots attaches the rubber outsole for reliable traction on a variety of surfaces.It’s a fact of life that people judge you based on your appearance. If you’re an independent , stylish, bold woman, let your true self shine through by wearing these Harley Davidson Women’s 83542 Black Shelby Leather Motorcycle Boots.Manufactured Sizes: 5-10, 11

Properly fit Bates shoes and boots will be comfortable to wear right out of the box; they don’t need to be broken in.

The boot should feel snug across the ball, around the instep, and in the heel. The arch should be comfortably supported and the toes should be free to wiggle and curl.The toes should not jam into the front of the boot. Check this by lightly tapping the toe of the boot into the floor. If the boot fits correctly, the toes should gently touch the end of the boot.Bates footwear is made in an array of widths in order to provide our customers with the best fit possible.

Victorian and Edwardian North Riding

Victorian and Edwardian North Riding


The North Riding of Yorkshire is a fortunate land – favoured by some of the most magnificent scenery in England and with a number of the country’s most attractive towns. A century ago this remote and sparsely populated area stubbornly maintained a distinctive way of life. For most, that life was a struggle against ferocious winters and unforgiving agricultural land. And although the county was spared the worst brutalities of the Industrial Revolution, lead-miners, woolknitters, quarrymen and others led a daily existence that was harsh, narrow and inescapable. But there were compensations. When working life was so punitive, entertainment of any kind was savoured to the full. Weddings, fairs, markets, brass bands and travelling showmen were enjoyed with a special intensity. For the more affluent members of society this was truly a ‘Golden Age’. Labour was cheap, the sun was always shining on some domain of the British Empire and (almost) everyone knew his place. Their leisured lifestyle contrasts painfully with the stark conditions endured by their less fortunate neighbours.But what emerges most powerfully from this fascinating compilation of photographs and words is the mutual respect and tolerance that flourished among the people of this time, one that must have seemed indestructible. This collection comprises about one hundred and fifty old photographs, reproduced to an exceptional standard, complemented by contemporary accounts of life a century ago. Together they record a lively community of strong-minded personalities, linked by closely shared interests and concerns, and offer the reader an insight into the lives of those who are separated from the modern world by only a few generations.
