Click for larger view The above photograph shows Ron London and Bill Mottern setting up their low power x-ray machine, the same device that was at least in part responsible for the seizing of all of STURP’s equipment by Italian customs upon its arrival in Italy back in The wooden crate that housed the x-ray machine had a radiation sticker on the outside, and that apparently raised enough concern to cause the customs officials to seize everything and refuse to release it upon our arrival. We arrived a week prior to the scheduled start of our examination while the Shroud was still on public display in order to unpack, set up and calibrate all our instruments and equipment so we would be fully prepared when the Shroud was brought to us. Unfortunately, it took five and a half days before the equipment was finally released so we had to work around the clock for the remaining 36 hours to prepare everything for our testing. We were still finishing our preparations when the Shroud was brought into the examination room, a full hour and a half ahead of schedule! In spite of the pressure and stressful circumstances, everyone pulled together, worked as a team and we got the job done! I wanted to do something special for today’s update and spent a lot of time thinking about it. Since we first went online on January 21, , we have included a Bibliography of STURP’s published papers, but were unable to publish the papers themselves due to copyright restrictions. Considering the historic importance of the work, that has always been one of my biggest frustrations, especially now on our 40th anniversary. However, in the ownership of this website and all of my Shroud photographs and other materials was legally transferred to our c 3 non-profit organization, STERA, Inc.

That sounds pretty cush to me. I would love to do nothing for six hours! While administering a standardized test, the only two things you can do are 1 walk around the room, and 2 watch students take a test. No writing, drawing, doing crossword puzzles, or Sudoku. No lunges, jumping jacks, or anything that would distract students.
No grading papers or getting caught up on work.

As Mark Blumenthal wrote in National Journal , “Over the last week, an anonymous blogger who writes under the pseudonym Poblano did something bold on his blog, FiveThirtyEight. He posted predictions for the upcoming primaries based not on polling data, but on a statistical model driven mostly by demographic and past vote data Most of the public polls pointed to a close race in North Carolina But a funny thing happened.
The model got it right. This model, too, relied in part on demographic information but mainly involved a complex method of aggregating polling results. In , Rasmussen Reports had an apparently short-term partnership with FiveThirtyEight in order to include this unique methodology for generating poll averages in their “Balance of Power Calculator”.

Series overview[ edit ] Applications for the tenth series began in Spring , towards the end of the ninth series’ broadcast, with the selection process of auditions, assessments and interviews held within mid-Summer of that year. As The Apprentice was now entering its tenth year, production staff and Alan Sugar discussed how to celebrate this milestone before filming would begin, opting on a few key decisions.
One such decision was on the design of the tasks; apart from creating more variety in these than in the previous series — some focused on technology and another aimed at dividing teams to work both within the UK and abroad — two traditional tasks — the first sales task, and the bargain-hunting task — were designed around celebrating the programme’s milestone, featuring the involvement of items that had been sold within these tasks. However, the more key decision agreed upon was on the number of candidates that would take part in the series.
While the production staff selected sixteen candidates, as had been done in the past since the third series, they were kept unaware that a further four applicants had also been selected to take part, until filming for the series began. The decision to increase the number of candidates meant that Sugar was required to perform more multiple firings than before, allowing for the series to include a triple firing outside of the Interviews stage, the first time in the programme’s history that this occurred, though reaction from fans was mixed over this decision during the series’ broadcast.

The story goes that in an excursion train to Southport got delayed on the outskirts of Wigan not long after leaving Wallgate Station. This gantry was quite a structure as it had to span the Douglas valley crossing the river, the canal and the main rail line to Southport. George Formby Senior perpetuated the joke around the turn of the century in the music halls in Wigan adding that when he passed the Pier he noticed the tide was in referring to the constant flooding in the low-lying area.
George died in December and, with the demise of the collieries in the area, the gantry had long passed out of existence.
