Cleared To Land

Seen here is the small runway/airport known as the Farrenberg aerodrome (FAR1). It sits atop a hill of the same name in the Baden-Württemberg region of Germany. You can see the tiny airport and runway on Google Maps by entering the following coordinates: 48°23’8.49″N 009°04’37.76″E (interestingly, in the Google Maps link you can see a handful of sailplanes preparing for launch)

Due to Farrenberg’s elevation, it is often above the cloud ceiling and makes for dramatic pictures like these when viewed from above.

The Supercell

In this dramatic capture by Ryan Shepard, we see a supercell thunderstorm never Ovid, Colorado on 28 May 2013.

A supercell is a thunderstorm that is characterized by the presence of a mesocyclone: a deep, persistently rotating updraft. Of the four classifications of thunderstorms (supercell, squall line, multi-cell, and single-cell), supercells are the least common and have the potential to be the most severe. Supercells are often isolated from other thunderstorms, and can dominate the local climate up to 32 kilometres (20 mi) away.

Supercells can occur anywhere in the world under the right pre-existing weather conditions, but they are most common in the Great Plains of the United States in an area known as Tornado Alley and in the plains of Argentina, Uruguay and southern Brazil.

Exit
 
The picture is a self portrait taken half a second after exiting the aircraft. Michael Nordqvist held the camera in his hand pointing it to the helmet to catch the sky and aircraft in the mirror of the visor. The jump was performed over Skydive Skåne DropZone in southern Sweden.

Magnificent Leopard

In this beautiful capture by Dwi Rahmaputra Judha, we see a leopard (Panthera pardus) laying by the water.

The leopard is a member of the Felidae family with a wide range in some parts of Africa and tropical Asia, from Siberia, South and West Asia to across most of sub-Saharan Africa. It is listed as Near

Threatened on the IUCN Red List because it is declining in large parts of its range due to habitat loss and fragmentation, and hunting for trade and pest control.

The leopard is the smallest of the four “big cats” in the genus Panthera which also includes tigers, lions and jaguars. The species’ success in the wild is in part due to its opportunistic hunting behavior, its adaptability to habitats, its ability to run at speeds approaching 58 kilometers per hour (36 mph), its unequaled ability to climb trees even when carrying a heavy carcass, and its notorious ability for stealth. The leopard consumes virtually any animal that it can hunt down and catch.

Mobile Lovers

Banksy unveiled a new artwork entitled Mobile Lovers, spotted in Bristol on Clement Street; we see a couple ‘embracing’ each other with their faces lit by their smartphones. A classic tongue-in-cheek artwork from Banksy and the placement is spot on.

The Calypso Pass
 
Two U.S. Air Force Thunderbird F-16 Fighting Falcons execute a precision acrobat technique known as a Calypso Pass for a crowd March 23, 2014, at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida. The Thunderbirds performed for more than 185,000 during the MacDill AFB presents Tampa Bay AirFest 2014.

The Calypso Pass is when two planes flying at high-speed perform a mirror image. Interestingly, the Guinness World Record for closest Calypso Pass belongs to Major Scottie Zamzow and Major Brian Farrar of the 2005 Thunderbirds. They were a mere 18 inches (45 cm) apart! The feat was accomplished on 12-13 November 2005 at the Aviation Nation Air Show in Nellis, Las Vegas.

The Thunderbirds are the air demonstration squadron of the United States Air Force (USAF). The Thunderbirds are assigned to the 57th Wing and are based at Nellis AFB, Nevada. Officers serve a two-year assignment with the squadron, while enlisted personnel serve three to four years. As the squadron performs no more than 88 air demonstrations each year, replacements must be trained for about half of the team each year, in order to provide a constant mix of experience.

How do you start your day? Coffee or Tea?

I can't start my day without a big cup of coffee.

The British exported a tea preference to many of their colonies. But not all—people in the U.S. drink three times as much coffee as tea, same in France. Tea wins big in Russia (77.5%), India (89%), and China (98.9%). The most evenly divided nation, according to The Economist, is Australia.

To see the exact coffee/tea breakdown, here's an interactive version: http://goo.gl/nqyQGX

Ce restaurant est une véritable merveille! Nous cherchions un bon restaurant pour célébrer un anniversaire en famille avec des enfants sur Grasse. En cherchant bien, la Fleur de Lys était sans doute la seule option correspondant à tous ces critères. Le pari était risqué! Nous sommes arrivés tard vers 21h30 en semaine et nous avons été accueillis avec le plus grand sourire par Christelle, la patronne des lieux. En arrivant dans la rue, on ne peut se tromper, l'entrée est magnifique, un havre de paix! Une belle table nous attendait, digne des plus grands restaurants. Ensuite, le bonheur a été dans l'assiette, un régal pour les yeux et les papilles. Quelle créativité de Sylvain, le chef et mari de Christelle. On voit une réelle passion pour la cuisine, pour la présentation des plats. Enfin, le dessert avec la belle attention d'une bougie pour fêter l'événement, merci! On ressort heureux, on a surement trop mangé mais c'était tellement bon! Et le portefeuille adore, des menus à 28€ et 36€ pour les parents et 10€ pour les enfants. En conclusion: ce restaurant mérite d'être complet tous les soirs, nous y retournerons à chaque passage dans la région. C'est tellement rare de trouver des lieux qui savent combiner accueil, présentation et bonne cuisine.

Le restaurant est très intimiste, idéal pour une soirée romantique. La présence d'une épicerie dans le restaurant est risquée mais elle est bien amenée. Le patron pourrait être plus avenant, parlez lui de sa passion pour la truffe et vous verrez il vous en parlera à merveille. Les plats sont bons, la truffe toujours à l'honneur. Et on repart évidemment avec des produits comme le risotto ou la polenta à la truffe à cuisiner chez soi.

Le restaurant est à la hauteur de son titre: de superbes saveurs composées avec une dose de coïncidences pour vous surprendre avec délectation. Le service est très cordial et efficace. Nous étions les derniers à partir et nous avons eu le droit à un digestif offert par la maison.
