Filmové mýty o mečoch

Stále som chcela držať meč, bojovať proti všetkým nepriateľom a stať sa prekrásnou rešpektovanou hrdinkou. Keď pozerám všetky tie filmy, kde dobro bojuje so zlom a skoro vždy víťazí. prinútilo ma to zamyslieť sa…Ako sa vyrábajú skutočné meče?

Meče Katanas

Quentin Tarantino alebo japonské komiksové knihy zobrazujú Katanas ako kúzelnú zbraň. Je ostrá a silná natoľko, aby preťala kov, kosť či pevné objekt. Je však tento meč taký skvelý, pretože bola oceľ pri výrobe skladaná viac než tisíckrát?

Realita : Japonskí kováči mečov používali kov známy ako tamahagane. Západ odmietal použitie tohto kovu na výrobu zbraní, pretože obsahoval veľa uhlíka (karbónu). Proces skladania kovu teda začal ako spôsob zbavovania sa karbónu. Skutoční japonskí kováči skladali kov asi osemkrát, keďže vedeli, že mnohonásobné skladanie kovu by viedlo k oslabeniu meča Katana a stal by sa tak hračkou pre deti. Odhliadnuc na fakt, že aj keby ste jeden z takýchto pravých nožov vlastnili, museli by ste mať špeciálny výcvik na to, aby ste ho vôbec vedeli použiť.

“Only a Japanese blade can end something this perverted.” Pulp Fiction

Meče boli na začiatku vždy roztavené

Veľa ľudí verí, že každý meč vznikol z roztavenej a horúcej ocele. Je naozaj veľmi čarovné predstaviť si, že meče, ktoré boli na začiatku roztavené, potom zabili toľko zlých postáv.

Realita : Vyrábať meče takýmto spôsobom ich robím nepoužiteľnými. Oceľová čepeľ, ktorá bola na začiatku roztavená, by sa mohla stať súčasťou akurát tak domácou zbierkou mečov. Každý meč začína svoj život ako veľký tuhý kus kovu, ocele a naberá na tvrdosti.

Alien Machinery Found In Russia

300 million year old machinery has been found in Russia – experts say the steel gear is not the result of natural forces, and may be extraterrestrial.

alienmetal

According to Yulia Zamanskaya, when a resident of Vladivostok was lighting the fire during a cold winter evening, he found a rail-shaped metal detail which was pressed in one of the pieces of coal that the man used to heat his home.

Mesmerized by his discovery, the responsible citizen decided to seek help from the scientists of Primorye region. After the metal object was studied by the leading experts, the man was shocked to learn about the assumed age of his discovery. The metal detail was supposedly 300 million years old, and yet the scientists suggest that it was not created by nature but was rather manufactured by someone. The question of who might have made an aluminum gear in the dawn of time remains unanswered.

4 Real-Life Hidden Treasures You Could Still Find

Have you ever dreamt as a child of finding buried treasure? Maybe you chased the end of a rainbow to find the pot of gold. Well, this article was written for the child inside you as we account for the hidden treasure that is still waiting to be discovered.

Over the years metal detecting enthusiasts have uncovered a number of treasures, including; underground stolen money (1946), pirate treasure (1952), a lost gold mine (1966) and an alleged J.F.K assassination bullet (1974). But many still await discovery.

El Dorado

eldorado

Located just a couple hours north of Colombia’s capitol city of Bogotá, Lake Guatavita is believed to be the site of the El Dorado legend, with actual gold being recovered from the lake since the Spanish arrival in 1536. And, there are many more hidden treasures to be found, as the children’s movie proved.

Butch Cassidy’s Stash

butchcassidy

He was such an outlaw that he even formed an outlaw group, called the Wild Bunch who buried $20,000 somewhere in Irish Canyon in Colorado USA.

Inca Treasure

incas

There is between $12-60 million worth of treasure stolen from the Spanish guard who attempted to hide it during a revolt. It is theorized to be in the formerly known Cocos Island, near present day Costa Rica.

Nazi gold in Austria

nazigold

In the last few months of World War II, Nazis sunk containers and various other objects into Lake Toplitz for still not entirely known reasons. Many divers have died trying to retrieve it, but what keeps interest so high in the lake is that many believe the Nazis sunk millions worth of gold, diamonds and other treasures, possibly even including art wonders.

Virtual Reality Used To Teach

In a fast changing world, people can’t afford to ignore new technology. So, gaming equipment has been matched with an environmental cause to create a learning platform for sugar cane farmers in Australia.

Australian researchers use the online world of Second Life to teach sugar cane farmers about climate change and new technologies they can use to reduce water use and fertilizer run-off.

second-life

Second life is game with the tagline, “The largest-ever 3D virtual world created entirely by its users.” It is a 3D world where everyone you see is a real person, and every place you visit is built by people just like you. At its most basic level, Second Life is an online environment created by Linden Lab, a company based in San Francisco. Second Life is an online world in which residents create virtual representations of themselves, called avatars, and interact with other avatars, places or objects.

The pilot phase of the programme was so successful the plan’s being expanded to include 400 Queensland cane growers, so keep an eye out for this new teaching platform. This is not the first time unconventional teaching methods have been used, and may one day extend to children’s classroom. Gaming and education do not have to be separate entities in today’s innovative world.

Sliding Doors Moment – Is Fate Real?

Did you ever see the 1998 Gwenyth Paltrow movie where her character gets fired from her job and we get to watch her parallel lives unfold, based on whether she made it into the tube before the sliding doors closed? Watch here for a reminder:

In an instant, life can change and we can lose everything: our health, our jobs, or the people we love. But, think about how much we can gain in an instant too. There are moments like this one in the movie that you do not control, do not choose and cannot decide. However, there other situations where you clearly make a decision, that you know it is affecting, no matter what, the main course of your life.

The New Age Cure For Insomnia

“This is how it is with insomnia. Everything is so far away, a copy of a copy of a copy. The insomnia distance of everything, you can’t touch anything and nothing can touch you”

― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

fightclubart1

Insomnia can be very detrimental to your health – it can cause stress, apathy, impaired memory, weight gain and a decrease in your immune system power. A study by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) showed that as high as 70% of us suffer from sleep deprivation, and most of these go undiagnosed and untreated.

sleepmonitor

Among other conventional methods such as changes to your diet or exercise, one way to get control of your sleeping habits is a sleep monitor. These can vary in their features, but the best of which automatically detects running, biking or walking as well as sleep. For example, Basis’ Body IQ™ 2014 Carbon Steel Edition features all of this in addition to personalized sleep reports for each phase of the sleep cycle.

basissleepanalysis

The Daily Mail reports that sleep monitors can actually disrupt your sleep because it gives the user an extra thing to worry about. Alternatively the BBC reports that carefully monitored sleep and exercise patterns can give athletes a competitive edge.

goodsleep

The sleep monitor industry is worth up to $3bn (£1.8bn) also according to the BBC. So, if you would like to see improved mood, weight, and lifestyle why not consider this new age option? I bet Chuck/ Tyler wished he had.

Shanghai Metal Corporation manufactures value added carbon steel products like this sleep monitors.

The Law of Finders Keepers

When amateur ‘land fishers’ (or metal detector users) make an archaeological discovery, who receives the proceeds? Should academics get automatic claim upon the find, the owner of the land, or should we follow the childish yet simple rule of finders keepers?

traesurechest2

Economists have long claimed that property rights have incentivized innovation and discovery, so to motivate future finds the finders keepers rule should be maintained. However this infringes on the land owners and the much older monarchist rules where from example in ancient Rome, half went to the finder, half to Hadrian. So what have other countries decided?

treasurewallpaper

In the UK, to encourage artifacts to be enjoyed by the public, the Treasure Act of 1996 stipulates if something of worth is discovered, museums or the government will bid or offer the fair market price for them. For example $5.3 million was paid by the successful bid from a British Museum, and split between Herbert and the owner of the Staffordshire field where the Anglo Saxon copper was found.

underwatertreasure

However in the US, various statues and precedents make the rules murky. For example, US treasure seekers in 1993 discovered the wreckage of a steamer containing millions of dollars worth of gold coins, but had to fight a court battle with both the government and the original insurers of the accident. They eventually won back most of the value, but these decisions are made by case by case and are very much subject to opinion,  and muddled by the American culture personified by the ‘no trespasser’ signs.

gavel-reverse

So which system should prevail? Ultimately, 90% of finds are by amateurs, so without incentivizing them, future discoveries will never see the light of day and be enjoyed for its academic value. But unfortunately as there is a lot of money involved it will inherently be plagued with conflict.

So like the recent Roman copper coin find in the UK, the value of copper can be quite pricey. At Shanghai Metal, we manufacture competitively priced value added copper products. As an ISO 14001 (International Quality Management System) Company and recipient of the “Star Enterprise Award,” Shanghai Metal Corporation prides itself on exceeding international standards of quality and reliability.

Privacy Unveiled …By Lampposts

Lamposts and laptop webcams have reportedly been used to listen in private conversations in the USA, UK and China.

lampostvforvendetta

In the UK, the so-called Sigard system has been tested in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Coventry. The microphones, connected to CCTV cameras, can recognise aggressive “trigger” words and sounds, then automatically direct cameras to zoom in on the speakers. Manufacturers denied the system is used to record conversations. It analyses sound patterns to pick out angry or distressed voices. But the makers would not pledge that in the future Sigard would not be used to record whole sections of speech.

The USA will start collecting data through Web-connected sensors installed on lamp poles this summer in an effort to ‘better understand the urban environment and ultimately make Chicago a safer, more pleasant place to live’ according to Bloomburg Business Week.

hacker

A 2009 report from the University of Toronto described a surveillance program called Ghostnet that the Chinese government allegedly used to spy on prominent Tibetans, including the Dalai Lama. The authors reported that “web cameras are being silently triggered, and audio inputs surreptitiously activated,” though it’s not clear whether the Ghostnet software is capable of disabling camera warning lights.

In response Kyle McDonald and Brian House say they hope to raise questions about the nature of public and private spaces in an era when anything can be broadcast by inventing an eavesdropping lamp that live tweets private conversations.

lampostspies

What questions does this raise about privacy? Should humble items like PC’s and lampposts be exploited to curb on civil rights? Infowars reports that the manufacturers of these lampposts have since taken down any reference on their websites to avoid a backlash. Shanghai Metal Corporation maintains its integrity in its field and manufactures the carbon steel used in lampposts. As an ISO 14001 (International Quality Management System) Company and recipient of the “Star Enterprise Award,” Shanghai Metal Corporation prides itself on exceeding international standards of quality and reliability.

How To Do A Better Job Than Jack

Spoiler alert – Jack didn’t do a great job maintaining the Overlook. The hotel’s overworked boiler was an ongoing metaphor for Jack’s own simmering insanity. And as his temper did, so did the boiler explode.

boiler

Proper maintenance of that boiler might have avoided the fate that eventually hit Jack.  Avoid unqualified maintenance workers as was shown here and hire a professional. But, you can perform some small forms of maintenance on your own. Depending on the type of system you own – forced air, hot water or steam — you can conduct various maintenance tests and clean areas that require routine maintenance. Well-maintained boilers function more efficiently and ensure that your family will be safe from potential hazards:

  1. Examine your boiler’s vent connection pipe and chimney, because these parts deteriorate over time. Determine that no holes or cracks are present and that all areas that should be sealed are intact.
  2. Inspect your heat exchanger for proper function. Heat exchangers typically leak water, so if you notice a water leak, that’s likely the problem.
  3. Readjust the controls on your boiler so they provide the optimum levels of efficiency and heat. The more efficient a system, the more money your family will save on heating costs.

stainless steel bar- boiler heat exchanger

Shanghai Metal Corporation manufactures stainless steel boiler heat exchangers. We are one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of metal products. Shanghai Metal Corporation produces about 8000-10000 Metric tons of stainless steel every month. As a holder of large stores of metal products, we are able to provide low prices, high quality, excellent support, and quick delivery times.

Thor’s Hammer: The Science

Thor’s hammer isn’t real, unless you believe recent Swedish news that Thor’s hammer has been found in Stockholm. No, only in the hearts and minds of comic book and movie fans does it exist. But, assuming it did, would anyone be able to lift it?

thors hammer1

Legend says only the worthy can lift it, and depending on which source you read, it’s made from a dying star. If that is the case, then it would have to weigh as much as a herd of 300-billion elephants according to Neil deGrasse Tyson. If you’re wondering, the average weight of a male African bush elephant is a bit more than 12,000 pounds, so about 4.6 trillion metric tons. Watch a video by Vsauce3 which nicely explains the concept:

If we were to follow the legend that Thor’s hammer was made from metal from Asgard, it would only weighed 42.3 pounds. That is far less than 4.6 trillion metric tons.

ThorHammer4

Most likely if it was made from existing metals it would be made of carbon steel.  Die steel refers to a variety of carbon and alloy steels that are particularly well-suited to be made into tools. Their suitability comes from their distinctive hardness, resistance to abrasion, their ability to hold a cutting edge, and/or their resistance to deformation at elevated temperatures (red-hardness).

carbondiesteelforhammers

Shanghai Metal manufactures the carbon steel in hammers. Die Steel is mainly used for manufacture of cold-work dies with high abrasive resistance and small shock load. SMC is delighted to provide wide range of alloy steel to the customers; we also accept customizations according to your requirements.
