Lee Stern 27 Apr 2017 Digitisation is sweeping across the motoring world. It has already pushed the windscreen tax disc and the paper part of our driving licence out of existence - much to the dismay of many drivers. But one bit of paper that is yet to bite the electronic dust is the V5C document, also known as the plain old ‘V5’ or your carlogbook’. The V5C still exists in hard copy form (though we’re not sure how long that will last!) but that’s not to say it’s been left untouched by the digital world. If you’ve not bought or sold a car for a few years (or have simply let a dealership handle the nitty gritty) then you may not be aware of the latest developments the DVLA has made when it comes to notifying it of a sale. While the paper logbook remains virtually unchanged, you can now notify DVLA of a vehicle sale online - without having to fill in the logbook, post it off and wait for a response.

He said alien evidence was likely to be buried beneath the ground, allowing it to survive asteroid impacts. “Structures buried beneath surfaces might survive and be discoverable as long as they do not suffer a collision so severe that their artificial nature is obliterated,” Wright added. “Merely destroying them would render them nonfunctional, but they might still be recognisably technological. “We might conjecture that settlements or bases on these objects would have been built beneath the surface for a variety of reasons, and so still be discoverable today.” Astronomers use telescopes like this to search for life out in deep space – but could evidence of aliens be found much closer to home? The astronomer suggested that very old spaceships could still be lingering in the Asteroid Belt or Kuiper Belt, a disc at the very edge of the solar system that’s made up of icy objects.

A NEW study has found that running can help to strengthen the spine, potentially helping to prevent and manage back pain. Carried out by Deakin University's Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition (IPAN), Australia, the team recruited 79 participants for the study, which is the first to find evidence in humans that running can benefit the intervertebral discs (IVD) in the spine. Before this study discs were thought to be a "slow tissue" and were believed to take much longer to respond to exercise than muscle. "Prior research in the last decade had shown that the IVD components are replaced extremely slowly, leading researchers to think it would take longer than the average human lifespan to have an impact on the disc with interventions like exercise or medication," explained lead researcher Associate Professor Daniel Belavy. "However, in this study we have been able to show that regular physical activity, such as jogging, can actually strengthen the IVD.

Last year John Heisz replaced his table saw blade with a paper disc, and discovered it could actually cut through wood . This month two different YouTube channels, "The Q" and "Mr. Hacker," put paper wheels into their angle grinders to see what other materials they could cut through: While the food stuff is a bit silly, I was surprised to see what clean cuts the paper discs made in the polycarbonate Coke bottle and the corrugated cardboard. I also didn't think it would penetrate the coconut shell. Obviously the big problem with a paper blade is blade wander. I was thinking that if they reinforced both sides of the blade with large arbors made of a stiff material, and with a smaller diameter that left just 1/2" of the blade exposed, that might keep the blade tracking straight; but then you'd lose depth-of-cut. Do you have any ideas for other ways to stiffen the blade?

So how about a 61 Norton Manx 350, as raced by Eddie Byers in the Isle of Man Classic Manx Grand Prix, for 12 consecutive years in the 1990s and 2000s? This matching numbers Manx—one of the last produced—just sold for a measly GBP18,400 (that's a touch under 24 grand, US). All the work on it was done by well-known tuner, Reg Dearden. It's packing upgrades like a titanium con-rod, ceramic coated cylinder bore, belt drive, Gardner carb, a six-speed box, a disc brake up front and shocks from Falcon. It's also an absolute stunner—from the generous race fairing to the classic Manx tank and tail, there's a lot here to love. Since I'll never be able to afford one of these, I think I'll just add see and hear one in the flesh' to my moto-bucket list. [ More ]

Jenkins, Stephen Zyzanski, and Ray Rosenmen sought a way to measure the correlation between certain behaviors and coronary heart disease. That study lead to the development of the Jenkins Activity Survey (JAS): a multiple-choice questionnaire that was distributed for use among psychology professionals in 1979 . Today, many A/B personality tests are adaptations of the JAS, like this one -- designed primarily for university students -- available through UNC Charlotte's Department of Psychology. Source: UNC Department of Psychology Today, it's hardly the only personality inventory of its kind, and almost seems a bit antiquated. In the last few decades, we've seen more complex assessments emerge, like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ® (MBTI®), DiSC , and Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI®). Sure, we might still make general references to it -- for example, I've lost count of the number of times each day I declare how Type A I am -- it seems like the classic A/B dichotomy isn't sufficient enough to comprehensively measure someone's personality anymore.

Haochen Zhang (BIS) Haochen Zhang is both a prodigiously award-winning pianist and a self-confessed introvert, and the wide-ranging choice of repertoire on his first studio disc reflects this. He captures the childish, quickly dissipating seriousness of Schumann’s Kinderszenen , and plays it with the kind of artistry that sounds sincerely artless. Liszt’s Ballade No 2 has Zhang creating great rumbling waves in the left hand, then closing in an atmosphere of hard-won peace. In this, and in Janáček’s Sonata 1 X 1905, he excels in conveying the larger shape of the piece, knitting the phrases together into long paragraphs, yet he doesnt short-change the showier passages. Brahms’s Three Intermezzos, Op 117, make for an understated close to an intimate, inward-looking disc, and their feeling of slow rise and fall evokes the breathing of a huge creature asleep. Rarely on this recording does his playing make a forceful bid for the attention, but it certainly rewards close listening. Continue reading...

The most extravagant goods you can find in Hong Kong may not be in its upscale shopping malls, but on an old street where a sharp, salty smell pervades the air. Here, customers pay HK$1,000 for a kilogram of black fungus that look like human hair, while a few pieces of a yellow disc resembling plastic cost as much as HK$20,000. On Des Voeux Road West, nicknamed Dried Seafood Street, about 200 shops have been providing Hong Kong families with their banquet staples for almost half a...
