CicLAvia From Downtown LA to Venice April 21, 2013 @ciclavia
 

This past Sunday April 21, 2013 was one of the most highly attended CicLAvia events. This was the 6th event in the past few years and the first to run from Downtown Los Angeles to Venice.  It was lots of fun and so  did 100,000 to 150,00 other participants.

There was a variety of different modes of transportation but most on bikes.

Here’s some pictures to enjoy from the event.

One notable bike was this one.

Watch this video from 14′ in the air.

 

14.5ft at the Seat
Built in 12 work hours
One Huffy beach cruiser, 2″ square tubing, 3/4″ round tubing, and 1″ round tubing
26″ single speed coaster brake wheelset
6 1/2 single speed bicycle chains (32.5ft of chain)

To bend the pipe i used an upside down shopping cart and a split log. Ghetto, i know, but hey – IT WORKS.

My last tallbike was just under 10ft tall at the seat and you can see us featured in 30 Seconds to Mars’ music video, “Kings and Queens” – youtu.be/hTMrlHHVx8A
STOOPIDTALL, is the inbetween from that one (Kafourki) and the world record tallest bike that i’ll be building next this year.

Thank you to all the Angelopes who guided STOOPIDTALL through the sea of fellow cyclists!

And thanks to all the photographers and videographers who documented STOOPIDTALL’s Maiden Voyage!

Much love, Richie

LA BIKE CULT

Music:
“Contact High” – Architecture in Helsinki (misspelt in video, DAMN)
“Amoebaz” – RUNE!

Caltech FREE PUBLIC LECTURE Airships: A New Horizon for Science
 
Thursday, May 2, 2013
8:00 pm
Cahill Center, Hameetman Auditorium

FREE PUBLIC LECTURE Airships: A New Horizon for Science

Robert Fesen, Professor, Dartmouth

No registration is required for this free event. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

Over the last decade, a few commercial telecommunication ventures as well as several well-funded military programs have attempted to develop autonomous, solar powered, high-altitude light-than-air (LTA) vehicles known as airships, which could maneuver and station-keep for weeks, months, or even years.

Wireless communications using a single, high-altitude airship could provide commercial high-bandwidth data services to consumers over a large area cheaper than via satellites, and there is increasing military interest in airships for real-time communications and long duration, persistent ‘over-the-horizon’ surveillance capabilities. For science applications, there are several distinct advantages using such a LTA platform over conventional high-altitude balloons and spacecraft and he will outline how this technology might be used to develop a remote sensing Earth observing post or as an astronomical observing platform which could return high-resolution data rivaling those from space-based systems at a fraction of the cost.

Speaker Biography

Robert Fesen is a professor of Physics and Astronomy at Dartmouth College where he has been since 1989. He received his B.S. in astronomy from Villanova University, a M.S. from the University of Hawaii, and a Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of Michigan.

After graduation in 1981, Fesen took a two year postdoc position at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt MD, followed by another postdoc (which later turned into a research staff position) at the Center for Astrophysics and Space astronomy at the University of Colorado in Boulder. He stayed in Colorado for six years before moving back east to Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH. He has been Acting Director of the MDM Observatory at Kitt Peak outside of Tucson AZ, and is currently on the board of Directors for the 10-meter SALT telescope being built in South Africa.

Fesen’s main interests lie in the field of supernovae and supernova remnants and he makes use of X-ray, ultraviolet, optical, and infrared observations from both ground-based and space-based telescopes. A current area of study is the infrared spectra of supernovae and their remnants.

One of his favorite objects is the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant, which is the youngest known in the Milky Way galaxy and exhibits the highest expansion velocities. This object has also been a favorite of one of the other team members, Dr. Sidney van den Bergh, who did many of the important initial studies of the Cas A supernova remnant using the Palomar 200-inch telescope.

Getting Wasted: L.A.’s Food Excess
 

Getting Wasted: L.A.’s food excess
https://www.scpr.org/events/2013/05/20/getting-wasted-las-food-excess/

Forums about food issues typically focus on access, origin, health. What’s often missing from those talks is conversation about excess: not in body weight, or in the types of food abundantly available in some areas and sorely lacking in others, but in what’s thrown out or wasted in the day-to-day.

On Monday, May 20, be part of an audience-inclusive, moderated discussion at The Crawford Family Forum that’ll explore how industry, community, policy, and individual efforts to both share and reduce the “extra” might move Los Angeles toward a more food-secure future.

Guests:
–  Robert Egger – DC Central Kitchen and forthcoming L.A. Kitchen founder
–  Michael Flood – LA Regional Food Bank CEO
–  Dr. Jonathan Fielding, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, Director and Health Officer
–  Bonnie Lee and Jean-Francois Chenier, 222 Million Tons blog and app creators

Moderator:
–  Desiree Gutierrez

6:30 p.m. – Doors Open
7:00 p.m. – Program

Admission is FREE, but RSVPs are required. RSVP at : https://kpcc.ticketleap.com/getting-wasted-las-food-excess/

Monday, May 20, 7pm
