Great News Tony Stark Gifts Web Wings in SpiderMan Homecoming

first_imgThere’s a case from Tony Stark with an “upgrade” for Spidey. Then we see Spidey leap off a building, open his arms, web wings! #ccxp2016 2/?— Ryan Penagos (@AgentM) December 2, 2016If you aren’t familiar with what “web wings” are, you might not understand just how pleasing this is to a long-time fan of classic Spider-Man. The reference is a visual one to how Spider-Man’s co-creator, Steve Ditko, drew the original Spider-Man costume.The more we see of the new Sony/Marvel Studios take on Spider-Man, the more obvious it is that the entire production, from director Jon Watts to producers Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige, are trying to bring the oldest elements of a Spider-Man story to the forefront. In Captain America: Civil War, Tony Stark engineers Spider-Man’s classic costume to have moving lenses that can widen to be expressive like in Spider-Man cartoons, but also narrow to a thick-lined angular eye, like the original Steve Ditko-drawn Spider-Man lenses.In the post-credits scene to Civil War, Peter Parker is recuperating in his room when he gets a visit from Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) and it’s revealed that the web shooters Tony Stark made Spidey (from Peter’s web formula) has an operating system display that looks like a digital update to Spidey’s old belt light (let’s call it a Spidey signal), also nodding to the original Ditko design for the character.Captain America: Civil War post credits sequence.Considering Amazing Spider-Man 2, the last Sony attempt at a Spider-Man movie, designed it’s costume to look more like the Mark Bagley drawn Spider-Man (of The Clone Saga and Ultimate Spider-Man), it must be the Marvel Studios impulse to bring the character back to his roots as an unsure high school student wearing a costume that is cool, but not aggressively branded as a spider.The web-wings represent the final missing piece from the Ditko inspired suit, which makes this Spider-Man super-fan happy, but that’s only because Marvel Studios is heavily in this Spider-Man mix. Back in the day (Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released in 2014), it was hard to tell if the old Spider-Man production teams were more dedicated to looking cool or telling a distinctly Spider-Man story. Marvel continues to find success in even the most unlikely characters by committing to those characters.On its face, the idea of having web wings is ridiculous for Spider-Man: he’s living in New York so he can almost always swing instead of glide, for one. For two, wings made out of webbing seem like they wouldn’t be good for gliding or flying because of how little drag they’d create on the air. For three, Spider-Man with web wings is a comic book character with an excessive amount of cross hatching lines. However, what we’ve heard or know about Spider-Man: Homecoming makes me think this can be pulled off without being needlessly silly.Other internet reports say that Spider-Man’s web wings will be in the trailer when he uses them to jump off the Washington Monument and glide towards an oncoming Vulture (Michael Keaton). Taking Spider-Man out of New York and placing him on the Washington Mall would necessitate another method of Spider-transportation that isn’t web-slinging. The Vulture as a villain would also suggest that a different method of aerial maneuvering could be a benefit to Peter. The gliding suit also appears to be a gift from Tony Stark delivered via Happy Hogan, which keeps with the technology in Spider-Man’s suit being a collaborative hybrid between natural Parker genius and limitless Stark funding.All the plot elements are lining up for Spider-Man: Homecoming to have a complete Steve Ditko suit on screen without having to over-correct the whole story with a gee-whiz Ditko/Stan Lee Spider-Man story. Which isn’t to say the classic stories aren’t good, just that the visual styling is something that can (and should!) be brought forward to create familiarity as we’re introduced to our third on-screen Spider-Man franchise.There are hints that other Silver Age Spider-Man story tropes might seep into Homecoming. Tony Revolori is playing Flash Thompson and Laura Harrier is Liz Allan in the movie, the former being Peter’s classic rival and the latter being one of his earliest crushes. The problems Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be facing will be both of the superhero and teenage variety, like the times before adult Peter Parker became a mainstay on the pages of the comics.The most welcome of all the classic Spider-Man characteristics to return is Peter’s scientific mind amongst Marvel Universe scientific minds. The webbing he creates convinces Tony Stark to bring him aboard in Captain America: Civil War, signaling that Iron Man can see Peter’s young brilliance. For Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first big-screen iteration of The Vulture, looks to be a tech-based villain that will require these upgrades to the Spider-Man suit. It’s just icing on the cake that those upgrades are the classic web wings.There’s even a new trailer for Homecoming!Tomorrow, Spider-Man comes home.

Inslee: Light rail is a must

first_imgOLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee has a message for Southwest Washington: The replacement of the Interstate 5 Bridge spanning the Columbia River will include light rail, or it won’t be built.Speaking at a preview of the 2019 legislative session, which begins Monday, Inslee said that light rail will be a feature of the replacement bridge because Oregon will pay for half of the project and has insisted that it be included. Inslee said the situation might be different if Washington was paying for the entire project. But, he said, it “takes two to tango.”“What I want to make clear, though, is that the Southwest Washington community needs to come together around a consensus,” said Inslee. “At the moment, unless Oregon changes its view, you’re going to have to put light rail on the bridge if you want a bridge.”In December, Washington and Oregon lawmakers had their first public meeting to discuss replacing the century-old bridge since the last proposal for a new crossing was scuttled in 2013. Inslee included $17.5 million in his proposed budget for a bridge replacement project office that included the assumption light rail will be included.While all but one member of Clark County’s Republican lawmakers support the bridge-replacement effort, they’ve voiced their support for bus rapid transit rather than light rail, which they’ve criticized as costly and inflexible. Last month, U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, and seven Republican Southwest Washington state lawmakers wrote to Inslee expressing dismay over his move to include light rail and asked him to keep other options on the table.last_img read more

Saxman Regains Rural Status

first_imgSaxman Totem Park and Clan House. Shared via KRBD-Ketchikan.The Organized Village of Saxman is now officially rural again.Download AudioThe Federal Subsistence Board voted during a work session Tuesday in Anchorage to return communities to the status they held before 2007. That’s the year the board decided to make Saxman non-rural, an action that Saxman residents and other Native leaders have fought against ever since.Theo Matuskowitz works for the Office of Subsistence Management in Anchorage. He says the board took three actions yesterday (Tuesday) related to rural determination.The first adopted a proposed rule that simplifies the rural-determination review process. The third action starts the ball rolling on options for determining communities’ rural statuses in the future.The middle action is the one that makes an immediate difference to Saxman.“They decided to go back to the pre-2007 final rule. Because, basically, everyone seemed pretty happy with the non-rural determinations there. It was after the 2007 final rule that people expressed unahappiness with their action. So, by the board deciding to go back to the pre-2007 rule, this makes Saxman rural once again.”Matuskowitz says there are still some administrative actions that need to be taken before the action is published, but Tuesday’s vote makes it official.Rural status for an Alaska Native community allows residents to subsistence hunt, fish and gather traditional foods and other materials.last_img read more

Scientists reach milestone in 3D laser writing in bulk silicon

first_img Citation: Scientists reach milestone in 3-D laser writing in bulk silicon (2017, October 18) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Researchers fabricate 3-D silicon structures with a focused infrared laser More information: Margaux Chanal et al. “Crossing the threshold of ultrafast laser writing in bulk silicon.” Nature Communications. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-00907-8 Journal information: Nature Communications The researchers expect that the results will open the doors to 3D laser writing for silicon photonics applications, as well as for studying new physics in semiconductors.The scientists, Margaux Chanal et al., from institutes in France, Qatar, Russia, and Greece, have published their paper “Crossing the threshold of ultrafast laser writing in bulk silicon” in a recent issue of Nature Communications.In previous attempts at ultrafast laser writing in bulk silicon, scientists found that femtosecond lasers simply weren’t capable of structurally manipulating the bulk silicon, even when the laser energy was increased to the highest pulse intensity technologically possible. In the new study, the researchers found that, fortunately, there is no physical limit that prevents ultrafast laser-induced structural manipulations of bulk silicon. Instead, they found that the laser energy has to be delivered in the medium in an abrupt way in order to minimize losses from nonlinear absorption. This finding revealed that the problem of all past efforts arose from the laser’s small numerical aperture (NA), which refers to the range of angles over which focused laser light can be delivered. The researchers calculated that, in order to achieve the desired results, it would be necessary to obtain extreme NA values that have so far not been realized in this area.In order to reach these extreme NA values, the researchers borrowed a technique from advanced microscopy called solid-immersion microscopy. The idea is similar to the commonly used liquid-immersion microscopy, in which a small drop of oil is placed on the slide. As oil has a larger refractive index than air, the oil reduces the amount of optical refraction (bending of light) as the light travels between the slide and the microscope lens. This, in turn, increases the NA and the associated microscope’s resolution (the NA for a microscope measures the range of angles over which light is collected rather than delivered). The difference with solid-immersion microscopy is that a solid material with a high refractive index is used instead of a liquid. (—It has taken more than 20 years, but researchers have demonstrated for the first time that femtosecond lasers can be used to structurally manipulate bulk silicon for high-precision applications. Since the late ’90s, researchers have been using the ultrashort pulses of femtosecond lasers to write into bulk materials with wide band gaps, which are typically insulators. But until now, precise ultrafast laser writing has not been possible for materials with narrow band gaps, such as silicon and other semiconductors. © 2017 This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. In the new study, the researchers used silicon spheres as the solid-immersion medium. They found that, when focusing the laser at the center of a sphere, they could completely suppress refraction and greatly increase the NA. The extreme NA values allowed the laser pulses to achieve sufficient ionization to break chemical bonds in the silicon, which in turn causes permanent structural changes in the material.”The in-depth understanding of the physics of the interaction and propagation of ultrashort laser pulses in low-band-gap semiconductors, like silicon, enabled us to solve this long-standing problem and achieve controlled material structural modifications, appropriate for applications,” coauthor Stelios Tzortzakis, at the Texas A&M University at Qatar, FORTH, and the University of Crete in Greece, told “Even more, the localized energy deposition in the medium results in out-of-equilibrium phases with extreme thermal and pressure gradients that can enable the creation and study of new states of matter, previously unreachable in laboratory environments.” In the future, the researchers plan to further push the boundaries of this approach by borrowing another microscopy technique called 4-Pi arrangement. This concept involves crossing multiple laser pulses with extreme NA values at the centers of spheres, which may lead to even greater possibilities in ultrafast laser writing in bulk silicon and other semiconductors.”3D laser writing applicable to silicon may drastically change how things are designed and fabricated in the important field of silicon photonics,” said coauthor David Grojo at CNRS/Aix-Marseille University in France. “Silicon photonics is seen as the next revolution of microelectronics using light at the chips level for ultimate speed data processing. However, it remains today a 2D world because of the planar lithographic methods used for fabrication (SOI technology). With our method we can envision the equivalent of a 3D printer for rapid prototyping of any innovative architecture. This will make possible for silicon photonics specialists to design things in 3D that must represent a real booster for the emergence of disruptive technologies and new concepts.” Experimental setup of using 60-femtosecond laser pulses for laser writing in silicon.

Countdown begins to the arrival of Singapore Airlines Ca

first_imgCountdown begins to the arrival of Singapore Airline’s ‘Capital Express’Singapore Airlines today began the countdown to the historic launch of the ‘Capital Express’ service in September, marking 100 days until the first flight lands at Canberra Airport.The historic service, which for the first time will directly connect Canberra to Wellington and Singapore, is scheduled to arrive in Canberra on Wednesday 21 September. To mark the 100 day countdown, Singapore Airlines has teamed up with Canberra Airport and Wellington Airport to display a ‘countdown’ clock in the respective terminals as anticipation builds towards the inaugural flights.Regional Vice President, South West Pacific, Mr Tan Tiow Kor, said today’s milestone was another exciting step towards the new service beginning.“A lot of work has been undertaken since we announced our decision to fly to Canberra and Wellington in January,” Mr Tan said.“Our recruitment process for our ACT office is well underway, we have announced that we will extend our national partnership with The Smith Family to the Canberra region and there is still plenty more to come.“There are some exciting announcements about the appointment of contractors as well as the physical establishment of our offices at Canberra Airport and plenty more to look forward to over the coming weeks and months.“Our team has been working around the clock to get everything ready for 21 September and while it is daunting to think we are now just 100 days away from the arrival of the ‘Capital Express’ it is also very exciting.“Beginning the 100 day countdown today highlights just how close Canberra’s dream of welcoming direct international flights is.”The countdown clock will display images of Singapore, Canberra and Wellington along with the number of days until the arrival of SQ291 from Singapore. The countdown clock will be projected in the departure area of Canberra Airport, near to where the new international gates will be located.With 100 days until the first flight, Mr Tan said ticket sales continued to be strong but encouraged those who had not yet booked to do so.“Since we launched ticket sales in January we have been very encouraged with strength of sales,” Mr Tan said.“We want everyone in the ACT and surrounding regions to take advantage of Canberra’s first regularly scheduled international flights.“Regardless of whether it’s a trip to New Zealand, a long weekend in Singapore or a holiday to any number of the almost 100 destinations we fly to around the world, I encourage those who have not booked their tickets yet to do so.” Fly Singapore AirlinesSource = Singapore Airlineslast_img read more

Homeownership Increases in Q3 Rate Remains Flat

first_img October 30, 2012 416 Views in Data, Government, Origination, Servicing Homeownership Increases in Q3, Rate Remains Flat Sharecenter_img The number of owner-occupied homes reached 75,076,000 in the third quarter, increasing from 74,832,000 in the second but down from 75,251,000 a year ago, the “”Census Bureau””: reported Tuesday. At the same time, the nation’s homeownership rate (seasonally adjusted) remained at 65.5 percent.[IMAGE]The homeownership rate remains near historic lows. In the first quarter, it was 65.4 percent, the lowest since the first quarter of 1997, when the rate was also 65.4 percent. The homeownership rate peaked at 69.2 percent in the second quarter of 2004. The rate measures the proportion of households owning their primary residence, computed by dividing the number of households that are occupied by owners by the total number of occupied homes.The Census Bureau also reported the homeowner vacancy rate fell in the third quarter to 1.9 percent nationwide, down from 2.1 percent in the second quarter and 2.4 percent one year ago. The homeowner vacancy rate–the proportion of the homeowner inventory for sale that is vacant for sale–is at its lowest level since Q3 2005.The number of housing units for sale in the third quarter, Census reported, was 1,476,000, down from 1,595,000 in the second quarter and 1,862,000 in third-quarter 2011. The number of housing units held off the market was 7,190,000, down from 7,612,000 in second quarter but up from 7,190,000 a year ago.[COLUMN_BREAK]The stagnant homeownership rate combined with a decline in the number of units held off the market suggests opportunities for home sales. At the same time, the profile of homeowners by age is changing.The homeownership rate for older Americans–defined as 65 and over–fell in the third quarter to 81.4 percent from 81.6 percent in the second. The homeownership rate for Americans younger than 35 fell to 36.3 percent. The 45-64 age bracket was actually the only group to see an increase in homeownership; the rate for that group increased 0.6 percentage points to 72 percent.The rental vacancy rate–the proportion of the rental inventory that is vacant for rent–in the third quarter remained at 8.6 percent, the lowest level in 10 years, underscoring a shift in housing patterns.According to the quarterly report, the number of housing units in the third quarter was 132.8 million, an increase of 121,000 from the second quarter and 487,000 since third-quarter 2011. According to the Census Bureau, 18,145,000 units were vacant, down from 18, 518,000 in the second quarter and 18,804,000 in third-quarter 2011. The highest homeownership rate in the third quarter was in the Midwest–69.6 percent, unchanged from the second quarter. Homeownership also increased in the West (to 60.1 percent) and the Northeast (to 63.9 percent), making the South the only region to experience a decline (to 66.9 percent).The median asking sale price for a vacant home rose to $137,000 in the third quarter from $134,600 in the second and from $136,700 one year earlier. The median asking rent in the third quarter fell to $706 from $716 in the second quarter but is up from $700 in the third quarter of 2011.
