5 Wind Turbines which Failed (Enviromental friendly?)

5 Wind Turbines which Failed (Enviromental friendly?)

Windmill Failures Nearly 120 wind turbines catch fire each year, according to a research - ten times the number reported by the industry. The researchers claim that out of 200,000 turbines around the world, 117 fires take place annually - far more than what is reported by wind farm companies. Fire has a huge financial impact on the industry; Each wind turbine costs more than £2 million and generates an estimated income of more than £500,000 per year. Any loss or downtime of these valuable assets makes the industry less viable and productive. Fires are a problem for the industry, impacting on energy production, economic output and emitting toxic fumes, this could cast a shadow over the industry’s green credentials. Wind turbines catch fire because highly flammable materials such as hydraulic oil and plastics are in close proximity to machinery and electrical wires. These can ignite a fire if they overheat or are faulty. Lots of oxygen, in the form of high winds, can quickly fan a fire inside a turbine. We look forward to your feedback !

EXTINCT Animals You'll Be GLAD Aren't Around!!

EXTINCT Animals You'll Be GLAD Aren't Around!!

Check out these EXTINCT Animals You'll Be GLAD Aren't Around!! This top 10 list of biggest prehistoric animals has some of the largest extinct creatures you'll be super relieved are extinct today! We would be in a ton of trouble if not! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "REAL Mermaid Sightings Around The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/ChM0CBRmVsM Watch our "10 Sea Monsters ATTACKING A Boat!" video here: https://youtu.be/0XROvoPCDNc Watch our "STRANGEST Animals People Keep As Pets!" video here: https://youtu.be/OMa96nPqz-Y 8. Titanoboa You may not have heard of Cerrejon, Colombia but if you are interested in fossils, this is the place to be!! It has some of the world’s richest, most important fossil deposits. It might just be the only window into an ancient tropical ecosystem. 7. Pterodactyls One of the most famous flying creatures of the ancient world were the Pterodactyls but they often get confused with pterosaurs. Yet ironically, despite popular belief, they weren't actually dinosaurs, they just happened to live in similar time periods. So of course, they had to be included in Jurassic Park films! Granted, they weren't as big as in those films, they were actually the size of big birds like eagles, but they were still a threat no doubt. 6. Megalania In the Australia during the Ice Age, there was an Apex Predator so feared that it became a part of the legends of the land. The Megalania was a monitor lizard, estimated to be about 23 feet long, even bigger than a crocodile! 5. Utahraptor The name Velociraptor is synonymous with the Jurassic Park films, as they were one of the main "villains" in virtually every movie. But the fact of the matter is...they were about the size of chickens, and might have even had feathers in real life. However, there WERE raptors that were big and dangerous, and could easily raise havoc in the world if they were still alive today, for example the Utahraptor. 4. Short-Faced Bear This bear was one of the fiercest predators to inhabit North America. It lived about 1-2 million years ago and is estimated to have gone extinct about 11,000 years ago. This wasn't just a bear, it was a gigantic bear. When standing on all 4 feet it was about as tall as as a human, about 6 feet tall. 3. Tyrannosaurus Rex The Tyrannosaurus Rex is no doubt one of the most popular and legendary dinosaurs ever discovered. And while the T-Rex may not have been the largest dinosaur around, it was still a terror, and there's a reason many movies and TV shows have made sure to include the T-Rex when they go back to that time period. 2. Saber-Tooth Cats In our world today, we have cheetahs, lions, tigers, panthers, and other "big cats", but not a single one of them compare to the Ice Age wonder that was the Saber-Tooth Tiger. 1. Megalodon Of course I have to include The Megalodon! I know it’s been on all of our minds lately since Discovery’s Shark Week and the new movie The Meg!! If the Megalodon were still alive today, the world would be in trouble. This massive shark was one of the biggest terrors the oceans of the world have ever known. It was THE Apex Predator of the ancient waters, and for good reason. Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

Japan's Most Terrifying Bridge: Eshima Ohashi ★ ONLY in JAPAN #33

Japan's Most Terrifying Bridge: Eshima Ohashi ★ ONLY in JAPAN #33

It's been nicknamed the ROLLER COASTER BRIDGE because of it's super steep slope and appearance of being a bridge to the sky. That's the Eshima Ohashi Bridge straddling Shimane and Tottori prefecture in Japan. Facts about the Eshima Ohashi: ★ 1,446 meters long ★ 250 meters of continupus concrete in the center (the third longest Ramen bridge in the world!) ★ 6.1% grade slope on the Shimane Prefecture side ★ 5.1% grade on the Tottori side ★ The bridge needed to be high in the center to allow large shops to pass under. ☆ From the Shimane side, you can get the optical illusion view at the end of the street by the sea. ☆ If you have a good telephoto lens, go even further to the other side of the sea for a better shot. (Map below) The bridge has a good pedestrian footpath on both sides of the road. Bicycles are not allowed on the footpath so stay on the main road with the car, to the left side. There is an observation point on the top that offers sweeping views all the way to Daisen (mountain). The closest major access point is Yonago Station and airport on the Sea of Japan. From there, take a train to Sakaiminato and rent a bicycle or grab a taxi. Sakaiminato is also famous for Japanese anime and the main street is like a museum of monsters! The bridge is a 20 minute ride from Sakai Minato. Take food with you from the station.

PARIS: Europe's MEGACITY

PARIS: Europe's MEGACITY

Paris, France is the grand megacity of Europe at the forefront of human progress. Video by Bryce Plank Hyper-lapse footage courtesy of: Tyler Fairbank https://www.youtube.com/c/TylerFairbank www.TylerFairbank.com0 Pavel Tenyakov https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHzDhebSXvisNFCLhjuGVgw TDC on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Script: One MegaCity always seems to be at the forefront of progressive movements. Whether it’s innovation in its cuisine, couture, infrastructure, or governance, this refuge for the rebel, artist, philosopher, and scientist, has always held a place in the hearts of romantics and vanguards alike. Because here, in The City of Light, engineers and artists often share a line of sight. This is Paris, the Grand MegaCity. Twenty-three hundred years ago, a group of Celtic Gauls called the Parisii settled on the Île de la Cité, a small island in the middle of the Seine. After falling into the hands of the Roman Empire, the town grew, until the Empire collapsed a short time later. Clovis, the first king to unite all the Frankish tribes is the origin of the name Louis, taken by 18 subsequent French monarchs. For the next thousand years, or the period known as the Middle Ages, Paris saw rulers, religions, wars, and plagues come and go as it became the largest city in Europe. Home to one of the first Universities and the birthplace of Gothic architecture, Paris was ground zero for the enlightenment. Philosophies embracing individual liberty, religious tolerance, and the scientific method, were perfectly captured by the phrase Sapere aude, “dare to know.” In the end, the monarchy and the Church were simply overmatched by the sheer power of a set of ideas whose time had come--ideas that were spread far and wide by books and pamphlets. The stage was set for Revolution. On the afternoon of July 14, 1789, the Bastille, a medieval fortress and prison symbolizing royal authority in the center of Paris, was overtaken by force. It was the opening move in a ten year struggle that featured the overthrow of the monarchy, the establishment of the French Republic, and violent political turmoil. The dictatorship of Napoleon followed, delivering many principles of the revolution to much of Western Europe. By the middle of the 1800’s, Paris had well over a million people, but was made up of tight streets and overpopulated, filthy alleyways. Life for many was a miserable, day-to-day struggle in disease-ridden slums. So Napoleon’s nephew, who had become emperor himself, set out to make the city healthier, less congested, and grander. He turned to a clever man described as big, strong, energetic, and full of audacity and skill: the visionary urban planner Baron Haussmann. He imagined the modern city as a living organism with the boulevards its arteries. Over the next 17 years, the duo oversaw the most epic public works spree since Ancient Rome. Tens of thousands of workers were hired to carry out their plans, which included a new aqueduct and massive reservoir to bring clean water from the Vanne River, and hundreds of kilometers of pipes to distribute it throughout the city; completely rebuilding the sewer system and installing hundreds of kilometers of pipes inside of it to distribute gas for thousands of new streetlights; two brand new rail stations connecting Paris to the rest of France; and more than twenty parks to ensure that none was more than a ten minute’s walk away. Four of these ‘lawns of Paris’ were major parks, inspired by Hyde Park in London which Napoleon remembered fondly from his time in exile. But the innovation that most transformed the city was Haussmann's dedication to wide boulevards, twelve of which converge on the roundabout circling the Arc De Triomphe. Throughout the thirty year undertaking, hundreds of thousands of people were displaced in phases as the entire city became a construction zone. This sacrifice - which wasn’t always appreciated by the residents of Paris - was well worth the end result. The discipline to keep the buildings lining these avenues the same height, all faced with similar colored stone, created a striking visual effect. Over the next 100 years, Paris was thankfully spared the widespread destruction suffered by many other capitals in the wars and conflicts that unfolded across Europe. When the unthinkable happened in 1940, and flags were raised throughout Paris during the German occupation, the city was declared too beautiful to destroy. Famous photos show him posing like a tourist at the base of the Eiffel tower, which was the tallest building in the world at the time of its construction in 1889. Originally planned to be dismantled after 20 years, converting it into a radio tower saved it and today it is the most visited landmark on the planet.

3 Companies Developing Game Changing Technologies

3 Companies Developing Game Changing Technologies

Patreon Page: https://www.patreon.com/neoscribe Merrill Lynch, the wealth management division of Bank of America, predicts that the Space Industry will be worth close to $3, TRILLION in 30 years. What will that look like? There are companies trying to establish the space tourism industry, such as Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic, and Orion Span. Others want to mine asteroids for resources, like Deep Space Industries and Planetary Resources. And today we are going to explore 3 companies who are developing in-space construction technologies. Currently, space stations have to be cylinder shaped in order to maximize the volume capacity of the launch vehicle. But by constructing structures in space, it’s space structures only found in science fiction. And this takes us to the first company, Orbital Assembly. Orbital Assembly is the business arm of the Gateway Foundation, which is the organization behind the mega spaceport, The Gateway, more on that in a bit. So, Orbital Assembly aims to be the first Turn-Key Space Construction Company, designed to build any structure in space quickly and with precision. Orbital’s Chief Architect, Dr. Thomas Spilker worked for more than 20 years as both a scientist and engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and worked on NASA’s Voyager, Cassini, and Genesis missions. The company’s near-term goal is to assemble small to medium sized projects and they are currently developing drones that will be used for such projects. But in the long term, Orbital Assembly wants to eventually build a structure that is true, astonishing. They want to the build The Gateway which looks like it’s straight from a sci-fi movie. Here is a rendering of the Gateway next to the ISS and other space stations throughout history, it’s massive. The Gateway is a Massive Spaceport with artificial gravity that measures 488m wide and 76 meters deep. Orbital’s vision for The Gateway is to be a stopping point for people traveling to and from Earth. People traveling to Earth from colonies on the Moon and beyond will travel to The Gateway on what the Foundation calls true spaceships, and then they will travel between the Earth and The Gateway on shuttles. The Gateway will have a crew of 150 and have a guest capacity of 1,250. The Gateway has 4 main components, first is The Hub measuring 150 m wide and is where the control room, storage, and viewport is located. Second is the Shuttle Bay, the 120 m wide, two deck component that will facilitate transfers between Earth shuttles and lunar craft. The Bay contains 8 large cargo airlocks, 10 gates, and 14 activity pads to move spacecraft around. The third component is the LGA which stands for Lunar Gravity Area, which makes up the rest of the disk area measuring 300 meters wide. As the name suggests, the artificial gravity produced is similar to the gravity experienced on the moon which is around 20% of what you experience on Earth. The LGA consists of a large open-air gymnasium, a restaurant, a Japanese garden and park, concert hall, food court, and a casino. Beneath that layer, there is the LGA Habitation Area which is a layer of hotel rooms. And the fourth component is the Mars Gravity Area or MGA, making up the outer ring of the structure, measuring over 480 meters wide. Similar to the LGA, the MGA produces artificial gravity that is close to what you experience on Mars at 30% of the gravity you feel on Earth.

Its rich soil was ideal for growing rice and attracted farmers from far and wide. In 1600, the great commander Tokugawa Ieyasu won the Battle of Sekigahara, a pivotal moment in history that secured Edo’s status as the most important place in Japan. Unfortunately, the buildings of the expanding city were made of wood and paper, a dangerous combination to confront the warm winds of summer. Legend has it that on one particularly dry afternoon in 1657, a priest made the deadly mistake of burning an unlucky kimono. The fire flared up, ignited his temple, and engulfed 70% of the city. 100,000 people lost their lives. Despite the disaster, by the middle of the 19th century Edo’s population was in the millions. That’s when the military shogunate system that had ruled for almost 700 years ended. A new government led by a young emperor finally made Edo the official capital of Japan, renamed it Tokyo, and made the castle his imperial palace. To celebrate his arrival, everyone toasted with rounds of sake on the house. Around this time Japan opened up to foreign trade and influence, with Tokyo driving the industrial revolution that was modernizing the country. But rapid development had a cost: a strained natural environment. Forests were razed, pollutants choked the air, and Tokyo’s once pristine waterways grew increasingly toxic. It was time for a more conscientious approach. The principle of Satoyama was born, promoting sustainable coexistence with nature, especially in the rice fields covering Japan’s sprawling foothills. Today, a century of conservation has resulted in parks covering 20% of the land in the Tokyo metropolitan area. But while the danger from pollution has been largely overcome, one natural phenomenon poses an unavoidable threat: earthquakes. In 1923, an 8.0 magnitude quake rocked Tokyo, devastating the geologically unstable eastern wards of the city. As firestorms engulfed whole neighborhoods, some took advantage of the chaos to target political enemies and minority groups, like Koreans. When the smoke finally cleared, 140,000 people had perished. Just twenty-two years later, in 1944, Tokyo was hit again. This time from above by allied air forces who waged a relentless nine month campaign that lasted until Japan’s surrender to end WWII following America’s detonation of two atomic weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On the worst night of the onslaught, 279 Boeing B-29 Superfortress heavy bombers dropped more than 1,600 tons of explosives on Eastern Tokyo... It took generations for Tokyo to completely recover, but today - after more than seven decades at peace - Tokyo is thriving... Zee news says in the newspaper that congress should make hawaii renewable like Japan.

15 Abandoned Construction Projects

15 Abandoned Construction Projects

From hotels on the Las Vegas Strip, to nuclear power plants in Eastern Europe here are 15 Abandoned Construction Projects. Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Fontainebleau Hotel and Casino This infamously doomed project began in 2007 on the Las Vegas strip and was set to be the city's tallest complete building with 68 floors. The site it was built on was historically a pretty popular area. However when the housing crisis hit Las Vegas in 2008, and further further development led to bankruptcy with the owner in 2009. An offer was made by Carl Ichan and eventually he auctioned off the furnishing of the building and much of it was scrapped by other casinos basically. While much of the construction is already done, various potential investors have sought to finish the job but not without a few extra billion dollars. Some believe the hotel will be ready to open in 2020 but who knows! 6. Abbey of Santissima Trinita This religious complex found in southern italy contains various buildings and was once inhabited by monks in the late 11the century however they never completed the old church. You can see much of the foundation is set but there’s no roof which is probably the hardest part of construction. Construction this building began around 1075 AD but the date when the monastery's construction began is unknown. Some believe it was once home to crusaders who fought in the holy land and didn’t have time to finish it. Eventually in the late 1899 5. National Monument of Scotland With an important name such as the national monument of scotland, you would assume they would finish this thing right? Meant to resemble the parthenon in greece, it was constructed to pay tribute to the scottish soldiers who fought during the napoleonic wars. But it just didn’t work out! Overlooking the lowland from the top of calton hill, the people below. The foundation stone weighed an impress 6 tons and a ceremony for its placement took place in 1826. Finally the project ran out of funds and now it’s earned nicknames such as Scotland’s disgrace and other shameful names. People still take photos with it nonetheless. 4. Stendal Nuclear Power Plant This was supposed to be eastern Germany’s largest nuclear power plant and in all of Germany. Located near the city of Arneburg, this was deep within soviet territory at the time of its construction. The site houses 4 reactors total with 2 different cooling towers and it almost seems like this one would be ready to be put to use. A critical moment in history however would lead to the demise of the project. During the reunification of Germany, scientists questioned the soviet design again and it’s possible they didn’t even know how to operate it. Instead of taking any chances with the design, they decided to just let it sit there abandoned. Eventually the two cooling towers were demolished with explosives. 3. Death Valley Castle What’s a huge castle doing in the middle of the desert in possibly the hottest place on Earth? Scotty’s Castle is a two story Spanish mission style villa, located in Northern Death Valley. It’s known as Scotty’s Castle and it was built by Alberty Johnson who was convinced there was possibly gold in Death Valley somewhere by prospector Walter Scott. The claim turned out to be false however the two managed to become friends anyways. The mansion went unfinished due to the stock market crash in 1929 but tours are available for those who are intrigued by this place. 2. Wolmirstedt Substation As you’ve probably noticed, the fall of the soviet union caused some construction projects to become abandoned and we see quite a bit of evidence of this in Germany. This substation was built in germany which was going to help improve the soviet grid in Eastern Germany but once again, the germans decided to pick the design from the west to be used. Both sides of germany were not able to be synchronized until 1993. Since the power plants needed to work in the same operation modes, the substation project here was abandoned and much of it was recycled.IN the long run though they felt that it was best to just give up on despite a the full completion of the railroad here 1.Moscow Abandoned Construction Projects While there is the Alexanderplatz in Berlin and Eiffel tower in Paris, you really won’t see more than just one skyscraper in western european countries. Here in this photo, we see the modern skyscrapers that literally look like they're scraping the skies. Although some of these skyscrapers are mainly vacant at the moment, Russia’s financial district proves to be at the very least, an impressive architectural achievement. There are many construction projects here that seemingly never end . It may take a while before people decide to completely inhabit this area so much of it is at least semi abandoned
