La Buena Vida

La Buena Vida is an indie pop group from San Sebastián, Spain. The band continues to make music as of today, they have recorded 14 EPs. Their music is a form of pop known as the Donosti Sound, a 1990s indie pop movement in San Sebastián; the band's career can be divided into two stages. Their music bore many similarities in sound and attitude with groups known as "twee pop", in particular those of the legendary UK label Sarah Records and of their countrymen Aventuras de Kirlian, they were influenced by pop music of the late 1960s like Love, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Velvet Underground, Pic Nic and Vainica Doble, with touches of bossa nova and soul. They have recognized the influence of French chanson, their lyrics in this first stage reflect everyday life situations, as well as the feelings and concerns of average kids of their age using a melancholy and evocative but natural tone. Their second stage began with the LP Soidemersol. Parting from their usual influences while keeping their own personality, they began to use complex orchestral arrangements in their songs.

Their lyrics began to mature, reflecting more complex sentiments and being much more bitter and less innocent than before. Today, La Buena Vida is one of the most influential indie pop groups in Spain.

Chyeranovskii BICh-14

The BICh-14 was a twin-engined tail-less sport / touring aircraft designed and built in the USSR from 1934. Further development of the BICh-7A led to an enlarged twin-engined version, a model of, tested in a wind tunnel, as the BICh-10, with two M-11 engines on the leading edge of the parabolic wing either side of the cockpit nacelle. Full scale development emerged as the BICh-14, a 2x scaled up BICh-7A, with Townend Ring cowlings and up to five seats in the cabin. Construction was of covering, four spars and sixty ribs. Flight testing began late in 1934 piloted by Yu. I. Piontkovskii, in 1936 at the NII VVS by P. M. Stefanovskii, M. A. Nyukhtikov and I. F. Petrov. Results of the flight tests were not encouraging as the aircraft was found to have marginal control and stability, with high stick forces required to raise the nose on landing, as well as an in-effective rudder. Despite the shortcomings of the BICh-14 testing continued through to 1937. BICh-10 – initial twin-engined version tested in a wind tunnel, in 1933, as a model only.

Skaramagas

Skaramagas is a port town in the western part of the Athens agglomeration, Greece. It is part of the municipality of Haidari, it is known for its large shipyard. It took its name by the Chiot merchant Amvrosios Skaramagas. Skaramagas is situated on the east coast of the Bay of a bay of the Saronic Gulf; the Aigaleo mountain to the east separates it from the rest of Athens. Skaramagas is 5 km west of Chaidari town centre, 6 km south of Aspropyrgos, 7 km southeast of Eleusis, 11 km west of Athens city centre. Greek National Road 8 passes through Skaramagas. Since 1937 Skaramagas harbour has been home to a shipyard of the Hellenic Navy. After destruction in World War II, it was refounded as a commercial shipyard in 1957, the Hellenic Shipyards Co.. In 2002, the port became owned by a German group of investors under the industrial leadership of Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft, which became a subsidiary of ThyssenKrupp in 2005. In 1973, the Skaramagas harbour was the scene of an experiment carried out by Greek scientist Ioannis Sakkas, to test whether or not it was possible for Archimedes to use focused sunlight as a "heat ray" to burn Roman ships during the Siege of Syracuse.

This event is mentioned in ancient accounts but doubted by modern historians. In the 1973 experiment at Skaramagas harbour, 70 mirrors with a copper coating, such as were available in Archimedes' time, did focus enough sunlight to set on fire a plywood mock-up of a Roman warship at a distance of around 50 metres. Between November 1978 and May 1979, the Greek destroyer Tombazis underwent structural modifications at the shipyard. Official website of Municipality of Chaidari Hellenic Shipyards Co
