You Can't Do That on Television

You Can't Do That on Television is a Canadian sketch comedy television series that first aired locally in 1979 before airing in the United States in 1981. It featured preteen and teenage actors in a sketch comedy format similar to that of American sketch comedies Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In and Saturday Night Live; each episode had a specific theme relating to pop culture of the time. During its original run, the show was seen as one and the same with the cable network Nickelodeon in its early years on the air, achieved high ratings, is most famous for introducing the network's iconic green slime; the show was notable for launching the careers of many performers, including alternative rock musician Alanis Morissette, filmmaker Patrick Mills, screenwriter Bill Prady. The show was produced by and aired on Ottawa's CTV station CJOH-TV, was marketed for an American audience. After production ended in 1990, the show continued in reruns on the Nickelodeon cable network in the United States through 1994, when it was replaced with the similar themed sketch-comedy variety program All That.

The show is the subject of the 2004 feature-length documentary You Can't Do That on Film, directed by David Dillehunt, released in North America by Shout! Factory in 2012. You Can't Do That on Television debuted on February 3, 1979 on CJOH-TV in Ottawa as a locally-aired and produced one-hour low-budget variety program with some segments performed live; the show consisted of comedy skits, music videos and live phone-in contests in which the viewer could win a variety of prizes. The format included performances by local disco dancers and special guests such as Ottawa-based cartoonist Jim Unger; every week the show took its "Roving Camera" to hangouts around town, recording kids' jokes or complaints about life, which would be played on the following week's broadcast. The show made several tie-ins with Ottawa radio station CFGO a popular Top 40 music outlet, including having one of the station's personalities, Jim Johnson, emcee the disco dance segments and share tidbits about the artists featured in the music videos played on the show, yet the show never took off.

Veteran comedy actor Les Lye played numerous recurring characters and was the only adult to perform in the show's sketches. Actress Abby Hagyard, who played "Mom" opposite Lye's role as "Dad", would not join the cast until 1982; the older children in the cast played adult characters. The show was meant to offer a program for children on Saturday mornings that made no attempt to be an educational program; the idea was successful, as the show scored a 32 share of the ratings for CJOH in its 10:30 a.m. Saturday time slot; the studio masters for the first-season episodes no longer exist, thus all but three of the episodes from this season were believed lost until early 2013, when copies from off-air recordings of the missing episodes from that season were contributed by Roger Price and posted on YouTube. After a successful first season, a national network version of You Can't Do That on Television entitled Whatever Turns You On was produced for CTV and debuted in September 1979; the show's creators shortened it to a half-hour, removed local content, added a laugh track, replaced music videos with live performances from popular artists from Canada at the time, including Trooper, Max Webster, Ian Thomas, Ottawa's own Cooper Brothers, disco singer Alma Faye Brooks.

Ruth Buzzi joined the cast playing many of the adult female characters, which included a strict schoolteacher named Miss Fitt and the studio secretary Miss Take. In addition, 22 children from the first season were trimmed down to seven: Christine McGlade, Lisa Ruddy, Jonothan Gebert, Kevin Somers, Kevin Schenk, Rodney Helal, Marc Baillon; the show was placed in the 7:00 pm timeslot on Tuesday nights, which due to low ratings, some CTV affiliates opted not to carry the show due to content. As a result, CTV cancelled the show in December 1979 after only 13 episodes. In January 1981, production on YCDTOTV resumed, a new set of episodes aired locally on CJOH through May of that year; the format of the 1981 episodes as aired on CJOH was similar to that of the inaugural 1979 season, but each episode featured skits that revolved around a certain topic, as the music genre's popularity had died down by this time, the disco dancers were replaced by video game competitions, which had become popular by then.

In the meantime and Darby decided to try to syndicate the show, they edited each 1981 episode into a half-hour format similar to Whatever Turns You On. Some scenes were re-shot to filter out any Ottawa-based or Canadian content, the half-hour syndicated edits became sketch comedy; the 1981 season was rerun on CJOH in early 1982 in the half-hour syndicated format. The YCDTOTV team made a pilot television film for Disney in 1981 titled Bear Rapids, never picked up. Four of the hour-long CJOH episodes from the 1981 season ("Strike Now", "Sexual Equality", "Crime and Vandalism", "P

Taff Vale Railway A class

The Taff Vale Railway A class was a class of 0-6-2T steam tank locomotives designed by J. Cameron and introduced to the Taff Vale Railway in 1914; the A class was an enlarged version of the Taff Vale Railway O4 class designed by Tom Hurry Riches in 1907. 42 of the A class locomotives were rebuilt with taper boilers and superheaters by the Great Western Railway and vacuum brakes for passenger working in 1924. All 58 passed to British Railways in 1948, until the introduction of the BR 82xxx 2-6-2Ts in the mid-1950s, these engines were used on passenger workings in the South Wales Valleys. Several were employed as Works Pilots in Swindon; the first loco withdrawn was 344 in November 1952 from Cardiff Cathays shed. The last seven locos 370, 373, 381, 383, 390, 398 and 402 were withdrawn together in August 1957 from Abercynon shed. None are preserved; the locomotives were built in several batches by Hawthorn Leslie, Nasmyth and Company, Vulcan Foundry and North British Locomotive Company. Their GWR/BR numbers were in the range 303-440 but they were not consecutive and were intermingled with other classes.

Wind tunnel

Wind tunnels are large tubes with air blowing through them. The tunnels are used to replicate the actions of an object flying through the air or moving along the ground. Researchers use wind tunnels to learn more about. NASA uses wind tunnels to test scale models of spacecraft; some wind tunnels are large enough to contain full-size versions of vehicles. The wind tunnel moves air around an object, making it seem as if the object is flying. Most of the time, large powerful fans blow air through the tube; the object being tested is held securely inside the tunnel so that it remains stationary and does not move. The object can be a small model of a vehicle, it can be spacecraft. It can be a common object like a tennis ball; the air moving around the stationary object shows what would happen if the object was moving through the air. The motion of the air can be studied in different ways. Coloured threads can be attached to the object to show how the air moves around it. Special instruments can be used to measure the force of the air exerted against the object.

The earliest wind tunnels were invented towards the end of the 19th century, in the early days of aeronautic research, when many attempted to develop successful heavier-than-air flying machines. The wind tunnel was envisioned as a means of reversing the usual paradigm: instead of the air standing still and an object moving at speed through it, the same effect would be obtained if the object stood still and the air moved at speed past it. In that way a stationary observer could study the flying object in action, could measure the aerodynamic forces being imposed on it; the development of wind tunnels accompanied the development of the airplane. Large wind tunnels were built during World War II. Wind tunnel testing was considered of strategic importance during the Cold War development of supersonic aircraft and missiles. Wind tunnel study came into its own: the effects of wind on man-made structures or objects needed to be studied when buildings became tall enough to present large surfaces to the wind, the resulting forces had to be resisted by the building's internal structure.

Determining such forces was required before building codes could specify the required strength of such buildings and such tests continue to be used for large or unusual buildings. Still wind tunnel testing was applied to automobiles, not so much to determine aerodynamic forces per se but more to determine ways to reduce the power required to move the vehicle on roadways at a given speed. In these studies, the interaction between the road and the vehicle plays a significant role, this interaction must be taken into consideration when interpreting the test results. In an actual situation the roadway is moving relative to the vehicle but the air is stationary relative to the roadway, but in the wind tunnel the air is moving relative to the roadway, while the roadway is stationary relative to the test vehicle; some automotive-test wind tunnels have incorporated moving belts under the test vehicle in an effort to approximate the actual condition, similar devices are used in wind tunnel testing of aircraft take-off and landing configurations.

Wind tunnel testing of sporting equipment has been prevalent over the years, including golf clubs, golf balls, Olympic bobsleds, Olympic cyclists, race car helmets. Helmet aerodynamics is important in open cockpit race cars. Excessive lift forces on the helmet can cause considerable neck strain on the driver, flow separation on the back side of the helmet can cause turbulent buffeting and thus blurred vision for the driver at high speeds; the advances in computational fluid dynamics modelling on high-speed digital computers has reduced the demand for wind tunnel testing. However, CFD results are still not reliable and wind tunnels are used to verify CFD predictions. Air velocity and pressures are measured in several ways in wind tunnels. Air velocity through the test section is determined by Bernoulli's principle. Measurement of the dynamic pressure, the static pressure, the temperature rise in the airflow; the direction of airflow around a model can be determined by tufts of yarn attached to the aerodynamic surfaces.

The direction of airflow approaching a surface can be visualized by mounting threads in the airflow ahead of and aft of the test model. Smoke or bubbles of liquid can be introduced into the airflow upstream of the test model, their path around the model can be photographed. Aerodynamic forces on the test model are measured with beam balances, connected to the test model with beams, strings, or cables; the pressure distributions across the test model have been measured by drilling many small holes along the airflow path, using multi-tube manometers to measure the pressure at each hole. Pressure distributions can more conveniently be measured by the use of pressure-sensitive paint, in which higher local pressure is indicated by lowered fluorescence of the paint at that point. Pressure distributions can be conveniently measured by the use of pressure-sensitive pressure belts, a recent development in which multiple ultra-miniaturized pressure sensor modules are integrated into a flexible strip.

The strip is attached to the aerodynamic surface with tape, it sends signals depicting the pressure distribution along its surface. Pressure distributions on a test model can be determined by performing a wake survey, in which either a single pitot tube is used to obtain multiple readings downstream of the test model
