For guidance crossings the first participant, who crossed by one of the known methods to the opposite shore, fastens the double main rope on a tree or relief ledge according to one of the schemes dressing a loaded rope.

On the "starting" bank, on a tree or ledge of the relief, two loops from the main rope are fixed. The working end of the rope is circled around the protrusion of the relief (tree) and fixed on a pulling grasping knot tied at the root end (Fig. 50).

Then a chain hoist is organized with the working end using one loop.

A retaining grasping knot is attached to the second loop (Fig. 50). The pulley pulls the rope. Remember that after the holding grasping rope is not loaded.

When the rope is almost stretched, a figure-eight knot is knitted on it, so that with additional tension on the rope, the carabiner, fastened into the figure-eight, reaches the root end and fastens on it, forming a carabiner noose (Fig. 50). After that, the chain hoist is disassembled, the grasping and rope loops are removed. The taut rope remains hanging on the carabiner choke ("starting" bank) and the "etching system ..." (opposite (originally) bank).

The last participant fastens the auxiliary rope into the carabiner of the carabiner choke and crosses to the other side. With his arrival, the cargo rope is loosened, all knots are untied, and for the auxiliary rope all ropes are pulled out to the opposite (initially) bank.

Artificial leather for touch emulation 15.04.2024

In a modern technology world where distance is becoming increasingly commonplace, maintaining connection and a sense of closeness is important. Recent developments in artificial skin by German scientists from Saarland University represent a new era in virtual interactions. German researchers from Saarland University have developed ultra-thin films that can transmit the sensation of touch over a distance. This cutting-edge technology provides new opportunities for virtual communication, especially for those who find themselves far from their loved ones. The ultra-thin films developed by the researchers, just 50 micrometers thick, can be integrated into textiles and worn like a second skin. These films act as sensors that recognize tactile signals from mom or dad, and as actuators that transmit these movements to the baby. Parents' touch to the fabric activates sensors that react to pressure and deform the ultra-thin film. This ... >>

Petgugu Global cat litter 15.04.2024

Taking care of pets can often be a challenge, especially when it comes to keeping your home clean. A new interesting solution from the Petgugu Global startup has been presented, which will make life easier for cat owners and help them keep their home perfectly clean and tidy.

The Petgugu cat litter bowl is designed for use with water-soluble litters and offers a range of additional ... >>

The attractiveness of caring men 14.04.2024

The stereotype that women prefer "bad boys" has long been widespread. However, recent research conducted by British scientists from Monash University offers a new perspective on this issue. They looked at how women responded to men's emotional responsibility and willingness to help others. The study's findings could change our understanding of what makes men attractive to women. A study conducted by scientists from Monash University leads to new findings about men's attractiveness to women. In the experiment, women were shown photographs of men with brief stories about their behavior in various situations, including their reaction to an encounter with a homeless person. Some of the men ignored the homeless man, while others helped him, such as buying him food. A study found that men who showed empathy and kindness were more attractive to women compared to men who showed empathy and kindness. ... >>

Thoughts are recognized and recorded 09.07.2012

A group of researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson have learned to read the words that appear in the human brain by deciphering the electrical signals emanating from it.

The scientists worked with volunteers with epilepsy who were waiting for brain surgery. Electrodes were implanted into the volunteers' brains, capable of receiving signals that cannot be felt from the outside. Volunteers were read 15 randomly selected words, after a minute they were asked to recall these words in the order in which they would remember them. It was found that a second before the volunteer remembered the next word, the brain gave out his electrical "signature".

Since the patient did not read, hear, or speak any words at the time of "remembering," the researchers concluded that the specific signal corresponding to the word was the result of the inner workings of brain neurons.

Surprisingly, the main point of this study was not only to "read" the words that arise in the volunteer's brain - the scientists wanted to understand by what principle he remembers them, in other words, how his associative memory is organized. That, the researchers say, will be the subject of their next experiments. They want to know what drives memory, what associations first of all cause the memory of a word - the size of an object, sound, color, taste, or some other quality.

“Spontaneous verbal memory,” says Michael Kayhana, one of the leading participants in the study, “is a unique human property. However, this aspect of human memory is very poorly understood today. To understand the role that language plays in the formation of a person’s thought, in his communications with other people , to figure out the essence of neural signals that determine the meaning of a particular word, to understand the mechanism that spontaneously calls them from memory - all this will bring us closer to the ever-elusive goal, to understanding how thoughts are formed in the human brain.
