Cold Chisel

Cold Chisel are an Australian pub rock band, which formed in Adelaide in 1973 by mainstay members Ian Moss on guitar and vocals, Steve Prestwich on drums and Don Walker on piano and keyboards. They were soon joined by Jimmy Barnes on lead vocals and, in 1975, Phil Small became their bass guitarist; the group disbanded in late 1983 but subsequently reformed several times. Musicologist Ian McFarlane wrote that they became "one of Australia's best-loved groups" as well as "one of the best live bands", fusing "a combination of rockabilly, hard rock and rough-house soul'n'blues, defiantly Australian in outlook." Seven of their studio albums have reached the Australian top five, Breakfast at Sweethearts, Circus Animals, Twentieth Century, The Last Wave of Summer, No Plans and The Perfect Crime. Their top 10 singles are "Forever Now", "Hands Out of My Pocket" and "The Things I Love in You". At the ARIA Music Awards of 1993 they were inducted into the Hall of Fame. In 2001 Australasian Performing Right Association, listed their single, "Khe Sanh", at No. 8 of the all-time best Australian songs.

Circus Animals was listed at No. 4 in the book, 100 Best Australian Albums, while East appeared at No. 53. They won The Ted Albert Award for Outstanding Services to Australian Music at the APRA Music Awards of 2016. Cold Chisel's popularity is restricted to Australia and New Zealand, with their songs and musicianship highlighting working class life, their early bass guitarist, Les Kaczmarek, died in December 2008. Cold Chisel formed as Orange in Adelaide in 1973 as a heavy metal band by Ted Broniecki on keyboards, Les Kaczmarek on bass guitar, Ian Moss on guitar and vocals, Steve Prestwich on drums and Don Walker on piano, their early material included cover versions of Deep Purple material. Broniecki left by September 1973 and seventeen-year-old singer, Jimmy Barnes – called Jim Barnes during their initial career – joined in December; the group changed its name several times before settling on Cold Chisel in 1974 after Walker's song of that title. Barnes' relationship with the others was volatile: he came to blows with Prestwich and left the band several times.

During these periods Moss would handle vocals. Walker emerged as the group's primary songwriter and spent 1974 in Armidale, completing his studies in quantum mechanics. Barnes' older brother, John Swan, was a member of Cold Chisel around this time, providing backing vocals and percussion. After several violent incidents, including beating up a roadie, he was fired. In mid-1975 Barnes left to join Fraternity as Bon Scott's replacement on lead vocals, alongside Swan on drums and vocals. Kaczmarek was replaced by Phil Small on bass guitar. In November of that year, without Barnes, they recorded their early demos. In May 1976 Cold Chisel relocated to Melbourne, but "frustrated by their lack of progress," they moved on to Sydney in November. In May of the following year Barnes told his fellow members. From July he joined Feather for a few weeks, on co-lead vocals with Swan – they were a Sydney-based hard rock group, which had evolved from Blackfeather. A farewell performance for Cold Chisel, with Barnes aboard, went so well that the singer changed his mind and returned.

In the following month the Warner Music Group signed the group. In the early months of 1978 Cold Chisel recorded their self-titled debut album with their manager and producer, Peter Walker. All tracks were written by Don Walker, except "Juliet", where Barnes composed its melody and Walker the lyrics. Cold Chisel was released in April and included guest studio musicians: Dave Blight on harmonica and saxophonists Joe Camilleri and Wilbur Wilde. Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane, described how, " failed to capture the band's renowned live firepower, despite the presence of such crowd favourites as'Khe Sanh','Home and Broken Hearted' and'One Long Day'." It reached the top 40 on the Kent Music Report and was certified as a gold record for shipment of 35000 units. In May 1978, "Khe Sanh", was released as their debut single but it was declared too offensive for commercial radio due to the sexual implication of the lyrics, "Their legs were open/But their minds were always closed." However, it was played on Sydney youth radio station, Double J, not subject to the restrictions as it was part of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Another ABC program, Countdown's producers asked them to change the lyric but they refused. Despite such setbacks, "Khe Sanh" reached No. 41 on the Kent Music Report singles chart. It was popular among their fans, they remixed the track, with re-recorded vocals, for inclusion on the international version of their third album, East. The band's next release was a live five-track extended play, You're Thirteen, You're Beautiful, You're Mine, in November 1978. McFarlane observed, "It captured the band in its favoured element, fired by raucous versions of Walker's'Merry-Go-Round' and Chip Taylor's'Wild Thing'." It was recorded at Sydney's Regent Theatre in 1977, when they had Midnight Oil as one of the support acts. Australian writer, Ed Nimmervoll, described a typical performance by Cold Chisel, "Everybody was talking about them anyway, drawn by the songs, Jim Barnes' presence on stage, sweating, as he roared his vocals into the microphone at the top of his lungs." The EP peaked at No. 35 on the Kent Music Report

Princess Deongnyeong

Princess Deoknyeong was a Mongolian princess, queen of Goryeo by marriage to Chunghye of Goryeo. Following her husband's deposition in 1344, she served as regent for her son from 1344 to 1348, she was from the wife of king Chunghye of Goryeo. Princess Deoknyeong was born in Yuan dynasty, her name was Borjigin Irenchenppan. In 1330 she married with Chunghye of Goryeo. In 1337, she gave birth to a prince, the future king Chungmok of Goryeo, she followed the Yuan Dynasty custom of marrying Goryeo princes into the family line. In 1344, her husband was deposed, he was succeeded by her son. Due to her son's minority, she became his regent. At the time of her reign, she led the national army and national affairs on behalf of king Chungmok, only eight years old, she formally stepped down as regent in 1348. Princess Deoknyeong was involved in political affairs after her son was succeeded to his majority. After the appointment of king Gongmin, she was treated with great hospitality in Goryeo. Princess Deoknyeong died in 1375.

DM3 density meter

The DM3 density meter, is a newly developed system for density measurement. A part of a continuous, in-line measurement device, used in major slurry industries and applications to and safely calculate density. Invented by Sciam Worldwide; the DM3 weighs media as it travels through a metered section of pipe using a patented, high resolution load cell. Using linear, direct sensing of mass per unit volume, measurement system within a reinforced rubber tube; this in-line section of pipe calculates % dry solids, wet density and wet or dry mass flow units. When coupled with compatible volumetric flow meters and processing units, this system gives a true value for density and mass flow; the DM3 is a bi-directional unit. "C" Clamps located within the DM3 allows the flow tube to withhold high levels of pressure encountered. The flow tube was designed to focus on the highest amount of accuracy and least amount of weight without compromising mechanical stability and reliability; because of the sensitivity of measurement provided by DM3, each unit must be programmed and calibrated to accommodate the variation in Earth's gravitational force.

Until now, the most critical problem with traditional density measurement systems is the effect of externally induced vibration and media noise superimposed on the weights signal. Designed for this purpose, the DM3 absorbs a significant amount of energy from external media noise and vibration due to low natural frequency, it is necessary to compensate for these forces. Pink noise is interrogated by the DM3 transmitter over 110 times per second to ensure repeatability to and calculate the positive and negative values for each period to ensure accurate and repeatable measurement of the slurry within a 45 millisecond response time. Carbon steel pressure chamber: Pressure Limits: 0 – 10,000 psi Flow tube: reinforced walls up to 36 mm thick, lined with natural gum rubber. Resistant to wear, including abrasive media. Load cell: sensitive, NIST traceable DM3 transmitter Key traits Operates at < ±0.5% full scale accuracy with values repeatable to ±0.1% full scale. Continuously measures a large representative sample in real time Ability for buried for use on land.
