Millstone

Millstones or mill stones are stones used in gristmills, for grinding wheat or other grains. Millstones come in pairs; the base or bedstone is stationary. Above the bedstone is the turning runner stone which does the grinding; the runner stone spins above the stationary bedstone creating the "scissoring" or grinding action of the stones. A runner stone is slightly concave, while the bedstone is convex; this helps to channel the ground flour to the outer edges of the stones. The runner stone is supported by a cross-shaped metal piece fixed to a "mace head" topping the main shaft or spindle leading to the driving mechanism of the mill. Neolithic and Upper Paleolithic people used millstones to grind grains, nuts and other vegetable food products for consumption; these implements are called grinding stones. They used either rotary querns turned by hand; such devices were used to grind pigments and metal ores prior to smelting. In India, grinding stones were used to grind spices; these consist of a stationary stone cylinder upon.

Smaller ones, for household use, were operated by two people. Larger ones, for community or commercial use, used livestock to rotate the upper cylinder; the type of stone most suitable for making millstones is a siliceous rock called burrstone, an open-textured, porous but tough, fine-grained sandstone, or a silicified, fossiliferous limestone. In some sandstones, the cement is calcareous. Millstones used in Britain were of several types: Derbyshire Peak stones of grey Millstone Grit, cut from one piece, used for grinding barley. Derbyshire Peak stones wear and are used to grind animal feed since they leave stone powder in the flour, making it undesirable for human consumption. French buhrstones, used for finer grinding. French Burr comes from the Marne Valley in northern France; the millstones are not cut from one piece, but built up from sections of quartz cemented together, backed with plaster and bound with shrink-fit iron bands. Slots in the bands provide attachments for lifting. In southern England the material was imported as pieces of rock, only assembled into complete millstones in local workshops.

It was necessary to balance the completed runner stone with lead weights applied to the lighter side. Composite stones, built up from pieces of emery, were introduced during the nineteenth century. In Europe, a further type of millstone was used; these were uncommon in Britain, but not unknown: Cullen stones, a form of black lava quarried in the Rhine Valley at Mayen near Cologne, Germany. The surface of a millstone is divided by deep grooves called furrows into separate flat areas called lands. Spreading away from the furrows are smaller grooves called feathering or cracking; the grooves help to channel the ground flour out from the stones. The furrows and lands are arranged in repeating patterns called harps. A typical millstone will have eight or ten harps; the pattern of harps is repeated on the face of each stone, when they are laid face to face the patterns mesh in a kind of "scissoring" motion creating the cutting or grinding function of the stones. When in regular use stones need to be dressed periodically, that is, re-cut to keep the cutting surfaces sharp.

Millstones need to be evenly balanced, achieving the correct separation of the stones is crucial to producing good quality flour. The experienced miller will be able to adjust their separation accurately. Grain is fed by gravity from the hopper into the feed-shoe; the shoe is agitated by a shoe handle running against an agitator on the stone spindle, the shaft powering the runner stone. This mechanism regulates the feed of grain to the millstones by making the feed dependent on the speed of the runner stone. From the feed shoe the grain falls through the eye, the central hole, of the runner stone and is taken between the runner and the bed stone to be ground; the flour exits from between the stones from the side. The stone casing prevents the flour from falling on the floor, instead it is taken to the meal spout from where it can be bagged or processed further; the runner stone is supported by a cross-shaped metal piece, on the spindle. The spindle is carried by the tentering gear, a set of beams forming a lever system, or a screw jack, with which the runner stone can be lifted or lowered and the gap between the stones adjusted.

The weight of the runner stone is significant and it is this weight combined with the cutting action from the porous stone and the patterning that causes the milling process. Millstones for some water-powered mills spin at about 125 rpm. In the case of wind-powered mills the turning speed can be irregular. Higher speed means more grain is fed to the stones by the feed-shoe, grain exits the stones more because of their faster turning speed; the miller has to reduce the gap between the stones so more weight of the runner presses down on the grain and the grinding action is increased to prevent the grain being ground too coarsely. It has the added benefit of increasing the load on the mill and so slowing it down. In the reverse case the miller may have to raise the runner stone if the grain is milled too making it unsuitable for baking. In any case the stones should never touch during milling as this would cause them to wear d

Qifu Chipan

Qifu Chipan, formally Prince Wenzhao of Qin, was a prince of the Xianbei state Western Qin. During his reign, Western Qin reached its prime after he destroyed and seized the territory of the rival state Southern Liang in 414, but it began a gradual decline under attacks by Xia and Northern Liang; when he died in 428, he left his state in a troubled position, by 431, the state was destroyed, his son Qifu Mumo captured and killed by the Xia emperor Helian Ding. It is not known when Qifu Chipan was born to his father Qifu Gangui, nor is it known for certain who his mother was. However, it appears that he was born prior to Western Qin's establishment by his uncle Qifu Guoren, because he was Qifu Gangui's oldest son, it appears that his mother was Qifu Gangui's wife Queen Bian. In 388, after Qifu Guoren died, Qifu Gangui became prince; the first historical reference to Qifu Chipan was in 393, when Qifu Gangui created Qifu Chipan crown prince. By this point, he was described as brave and intelligent, more capable than his father.

He became a key official in his father's administration. In 400, Qifu Gangui suffered a major defeat at the hands of the Later Qin emperor Yao Xing, most of his state was seized by Later Qin. Qifu Gangui concluded that he could not sustain a state any more, instructed his officials to surrender to Later Qin, while he himself surrendered to Southern Liang's prince Tufa Lilugu, who welcomed him as an honored guest. Tufa Lilugu's brother Tufa Juyan suspected Qifu Gangui's intentions, suggested that Tufa Lilugu exile him to the Yifu tribe, a suggestion that Tufa Lilugu rejected. However, worried that Qifu Gangui would try to reestablish his state, he sent an army to watch over him. Qifu Gangui, fearing that he would be executed regained trust from Tufa Lilugu by sending Qifu Chipan, his brothers, their mother to the Southern Liang capital Xiping as hostages, he himself, however, as soon as the Southern Liang guard was down, fled to Fuhan and surrendered to Later Qin. It might have been around this time that Qifu Chipan married the daughter of Tufa Lilugu's brother Tufa Rutan, when Qifu Chipan tried to flee to Later Qin to join his father but was captured on the way, Tufa Rutan urged for his life against Tufa Lilugu's initial desire to execute him, Tufa Lilugu agreed with Tufa Rutan.

After Tufa Lilugu died in 402 and was succeeded by Tufa Rutan, Qifu Chipan escaped and fled to his father, who by had been made a key Later Qin general. Tufa Rutan sent Qifu Chipan's wife and children to him. Qifu Gangui, in control of his old capital Yuanchuan, sent Qifu Chipan to the Later Qin capital Chang'an to visit the emperor Yao Xing, Yao Xing made him a commandery governor. In 407, concerned that Qifu Gangui was becoming stronger and more difficult to control, Yao Xing detained him while he was visiting Chang'an, had Qifu Chipan take over his post; that year, when Tufa Rutan, who had nominally been a Later Qin vassal, considered renouncing that status, he sent messengers to Qifu Chipan urging him to join the rebellion. Qifu Chipan sent their heads to Chang ` an. In 408, believing that Later Qin was growing weaker, he built a castle at Kanglang Mountain to both prepare to defend himself against Later Qin's enemies and against a potential Later Qin campaign against him. In 409, he captured Fuhan from the Later Qin rebel Peng Xi'nian and secretly sent messengers to inform Qifu Gangui of this.

Qifu Gangui, attending Yao Xing at Pingliang escaped and fled back to Yuanchuan to join him. Soon, Qifu Gangui left Qifu Chipan in command of Fuhan. Late that year, Qifu Gangui redeclared independence with the title Prince of Qin, he created Qifu Chipan crown prince again. Qifu Chipan became the person, he made the scholar Jiao Yi Qifu Chipan's teacher, told Qifu Chipan to serve Jiao like a father, Qifu Chipan did so. In 411, Qifu Gangui, after some campaigns against Later Qin, agreed to nominally resubmit as a vassal, Yao Xing created him the Prince of Henan and Qifu Chipan the Duke of Pingchang; that year, Qifu Gangui sent Qifu Chipan and his brother Qifu Shenqian on a campaign against Southern Liang, they had a major victory over Tufa Rutan's crown prince Tufa Hutai, capturing more than 100,000 animals. In spring 412, Qifu Gangui moved the capital to Tanjiao, leaving Qifu Chipan in command of Yuanchuan. In summer 412, while at Tanjiao, Qifu Gangui was assassinated by Qifu Guoren's son Qifu Gongfu, who killed more than 10 brothers of Qifu Chipan.

Qifu Gongfu took up a defense position at Daxia. Qifu Chipan sent his brothers Qifu Zhida and Qifu Muyigan to attack Qifu Gongfu, while moving the capital to Fuhan. Qifu Zhida, defeated Qifu Gongfu and executed him, his sons, his brother Qifu Achai. Qifu Chipan was now the undisputed heir, he claimed the title Prince of Henan. Early in his reign, Qifu Chipan continued his state's expansion at the expense of Tuyuhun, Southern Liang and Later Qin, he further forced local tribes which were not under his father's rule into submission. In 414, upon receiving news that Tufa Rutan was attacking rebellious Tuoqihan and Yifu tribes, leaving Tufa Hutai in command of the S

MotoGP 3

MotoGP 3 is a Grand Prix motorcycle racing video game developed and published by Namco for the PlayStation 2. Released in 2003, it's the third game in the Namco series, which coincided with the THQ series for a number of years; the gameplay is similar to past games by Namco, like MotoGP and MotoGP 2. MotoGP 3 is based off the 2002 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season, but with the introduction of four stroke bikes, the gameplay has some slight differences; the new 990cc 4-stroke bikes are faster, but tend to be a bit of a handful while the 500cc 2-strokes are less faster but better to handle. MotoGP 3 has far more tracks than the previous game, with 15 real world courses which include Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, Paul Ricard and Mugello. There are a combination of fantasy layouts which can be as simplistic as a straight line or as complex as having a cross road in it; when starting the game up for the first time, as per usual with Namco MotoGP games, players will be allowed to create a custom rider.

After that, they will be brought to the menu screen. The first is arcade, where the players can choose the bike they wish to ride as, number of laps, weather and settings to do a race. Season mode puts them into a season with any team and the player races on a combination of circuits to try and win the championship. Time Trial is like Arcade, except rather than racing against a number of opponents for a number of laps, they're racing against the clock to try to get the best time for as long as desired. Challenge mode is that players can play, they range from beating another rider, riding between cones, setting a specific lap time in Time Trial or winning a race at a specific track. Completing challenges will unlock riders and pictures. Multiplayer allows players to race against their friends, which can be up to four of them, at the same time. Legends mode is, like Time Trial, similar to Arcade mode, except rather than facing riders from 2002, they face riders from past seasons, including the likes of Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Gardner and Mick Doohan to name a few.

There's Options to make the game to the players liking and a Load/Save section. The game includes fictional riders based on Namco game franchises. Susumu Hori is only available in the PAL and Japanese version of the game; the game received "favorable" reviews according to the review aggregation website Metacritic. MotoGP 3 was successful in Italy: Sony Computer Entertainment Italia reported just under 100,000 sales by March 2004. MotoGP 3 at MobyGames
