North Jutland "Bjerger"

Having family in Hirtshals for many years, my wife and I were always greatly amused by places with names like Degnbjerg (81m), Vennebjerg, Gammel Roennebjerg and so on. The best reason we have been able to think of that these places should be called mountains is that they were probably dry when t...

I can see other uses...

Hmmm. It would be easy with these in most mobile phones, to flood buildings with a low level of an unusual gas. The moment the phone becomes aware of it it rings fx the police and they pick up someone in the wrong place at the wrong time. Are these chips going to be smart and sensitive enough t...

English (mis)Managers

I had to laugh when reading this: "Han nævner som eksempel, at englændere ofte i højere grad end danskere hænger sig i deres titler, og at en degradering for dem er det værst tænkelige." I was employed as Radiation Protection Adviser in a leading English University, had a breakdown, took early ...

Why bother

My memories of Herning Sygehus's medical and psychological skills around 1990 make me feel that, unless the place has improved, the best thing to do would be to shut both it and Holstebro down permanently and shift all patients out to Aarhus. The quality of care envisioned by the doctor (ge...

Hmmm!

Having started my working life in research virology and retained an interest throughout my working life, the amount of heat generated on this issue (as against light) appears to relate directly to the inverse of the biological knowledge of the writer. As a highly trained and experienced Health an...

Shooting Admirals

At the end of the 18th century, an English admiral was shot for not pursuing the enemy and for cowardice. I believe it was Voltaire who wrote ironically the "The English shoot an admiral now and then to encourage the others". The real question must be whether, if it turns out that this engineer...

I've been very sceptical for some years as to whether electric cars actually will reduce the amount of CO2 released, when every part of the equation has been carefully measured. Now we'll see. Also, when this big a change in infrastructure is put in place, it gains a life of its own. ...

Why make things worse?

While I agree that the majority of road traffic "accidents" are due to what is known in English as "the nut that holds the wheel", there's no point in allowing manufacturers to make things worse then lie about it. I can remember back in 1991 driving to work in Vejle in fog and watching car ...

There's a bit more to it!!!

It never ceases to astonish me how naive engineers are about human behaviour. Suppose that a system where people who do not know each other can via a system arrange to travel in one of them's car. A group of criminals now realise the potential and arrange for 3 of them to travel with a mot...

Re: Tysk tromleformet vindmølle

Du tænker nok på en Savonius type mølle - den kan i princippet fremstilles af to gamle olietønder. Prøv at google "Savonius rotor". Problemet med den er bare at den leverer et godt startmoment, men at hastigheden er meget langsom. Der er gennem årene forsøgt produceret flere sjove versioner af de...
