Olympic Rings INspired Bridged in China

Penda has designed a prestressed double-helix bridge spanning China’s Gui River that will become an integral part of the infrastructure system for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. The San Shan Bridge, which translates to 3 Mountains Bridge, draws inspiration from the interlacing of five rings in the Olympic Symbol to create a form evocative of the area’s mountainous landscape.

I love my friend. This is one of the many things that makes her awesome.



office

post-its on the white board, development diagrams taped to the wall, hiroshige prints in black frames behind me, inherited ikea lamp that largely remains off, and mismatched but comfortable office chairs.

IT life at a university.

the ears?

oh, those are because i have an ‘open door’ policy. my door is **always** open. if i’m wearing my ears it helps folks to know i’m trying to get some bullshit bureaucratic paperwork done on a deadline, but i gladly welcome an interruption.

really, they’re my “there’s a lot of dumb in the job, but we can still dance” ears. cuz i may have to do some lame ass shit, but i can do it in red vans and cat ears.

never let the turkeys get you down.

Photographs of a Microburst Rising Over Phoenix Appear Just Like a Mushroom Cloud

by Christopher Jobson
storm-1

Photos by Jerry Ferguson, with help of pilot Andrew Park.

While helicopter pilot Andrew Park was flying over Phoenix this week, photographer Jerry Ferguson captured what appears to be a giant foreboding mushroom cloud hanging over the city. In actuality the scene is a weather cluster called a “microburst,” a phenomenon that occurs when cooled air from a thunderstorm rushes to the ground and spreads over the land at speeds over 100 miles per hour causing a powerful and centralized air current.

Ferguson captured the sight while filming the weather for a local TV station. A timelapse video by Bryan Snider shows the same microburst from Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport, the camera positioned at what looks like just a couple hundred feet from the center of the storm. (via Mashable)
