The water that fills our tap, available with the turn of a knob, has been on a long, expensive journey before it dribbles out as drinking water.The Arroyo Seco Foundation celebrated past successes and visions about to come to fruition in the journey of the Arroyo on Wednesday May 29. Now more than ever change is happening to the Arroyo.This annual event brings special reasons to celebrate the Arroyo. In the past year Arroyo Seco Foundation helped save the Hahamongna Watershed Park from becoming a soccer field and allowed native fish to swim in the central Arroyo. New vegetation has sprouted since the devastation of the 2009 fire, bringing more lilacs and Manzanita.â€œItâ€™s a good time to bring more people into this discussion regarding the Arroyo. Itâ€™s a good time for people to take notice because were seeing things happen,â€ Jonathan Frame said.The speakers gave everyone a real view of whatâ€™s happening with the spectacular natural resource by working their way down the water shed, beginning at the riverâ€™s head in Hahamongna, then hearing from South Pasadena, Altadena, Highland Park, and finally the spot where the tributary joins the Los Angeles River.Big plans are in the works to construct new spreading basins. Spreading basins allow for more water absorption into the ground, which means more local drinking water will become available for Pasadena residents.Arroyo Seco Canyon project, a joint effort of Arroyo Seco Foundation and Pasadena Water and Power, will improve the local water reliability so that Pasadena will not be as dependent on water that comes from hundreds of miles away. Currently two-thirds of Pasadenaâ€™s water supply is imported from the Bay Delta and Colorado River.The Arroyo Seco Canyon Project will address three components in the Hahamongna: increase the local water resources, restore natural habitat, and improve recreation opportunities.Carollo Engineers have finished a conceptual design that will reconstruct the JPL parking lot into a spreading basin as well as add picnic tables, drinking fountains, and native plants. On Memorial Day, 1500 hikers and cyclists utilized this beautiful area. By next Memorial Day those active users will see large improvements.Making a continuous bike trail system from the San Gabriel Mountains to Downtown Los Angeles is another widely anticipated project. Michael Cacciotti of South Pasadena is working on part of that goal with a plan to reconnect the old bike path that was taken over by the golf course. A grant from the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy will help this seven-tenths of a mile path be reconstructed for the first time since 1955.Star-News Columnist and Arroyo River enthusiast Larry Wilson presented ideas about transforming the confluence, the place where the Arroyo meets the Los Angeles River.â€œWe need to use the Arroyo energy in this roomâ€ Larry Wilson said, â€œThis could be a dream space for our grandchildren. â€A celebration of the Arroyo would not be complete without music. Timothy Sellers and Ladee Walsh of Artichoke had the crowd clapping vigorously with songs detailing the Arroyo and Highland Park.Dry River Brewing helped attendees celebrate by providing homebrewed beer made with water from the Arroyo Seco. Their refreshing elderberry blossom home brew is perfect for warm summer evenings. Vanva Ciceryoua and Loie Luna are in the process of establishing their brewing company on the banks of the Los Angeles River where people can come to â€œparty with a purpose.â€The celebration meeting ended with a special guest visit from Princess Haha, who filled the room with laughter with her â€œstrip tease with treesâ€ act.â€œWe want to broaden our base of community support because it is the members who help plant the vision, get grants and develop essential partnerships,â€ Tim Brick, ASF Managing Director said.Omar Delgado of Northeast Trees challenged all the lovers of the Arryo to take a trash bag with them next time they go on a walk and pick up trash because any little bit helps.â€œOne person canâ€™t do this, we all need to work together. Whatever passion we have for the Arroyo Seco, for the river system, for Los Angeles County and the future,â€ Master of Ceremonies and Arroyo Seco Foundation Volunteer Dorothy Wong said. â€œThe Arroyo is the one of the most beautiful, hidden, diverse treasures that Southern California, if not the world has.â€ faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Photo Gallery Celebrate the Arroyo, Go on a Hike By RACHEL YOUNG Published on Friday, May 31, 2013 | 12:33 pm 11 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it First Heatwave Expected Next Week Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Subscribe More Cool Stuff Make a comment Community News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Top of the News Community News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Your email address will not be published.

© 2013 Phys.org Citation: Atheer Labs demos 3-D virtual object-manipulation goggles (2013, July 1) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-07-atheer-labs-demos-d-virtual.html Startup glasses overlay Internet on real world (Phys.org) —Atheer Labs has announced the development of a new type of technology that allows for creating and manipulating virtual three-dimensional objects via goggles or by other types of devices. Calling it a Mobile 3D Platform, the technology is meant to function on a variety of different types of devices running different types of operating systems, such as Android or other open source systems. More information: Press release: www.atheerlabs.com/press-relea … e_Mobile_3D_PlatformVideo demo: allthingsd.com/video/?video_id … 94-9255-66EBD13A940D Devices running the system are capable of creating and displaying virtual 3D objects which the viewer sees by looking through a transparent screen. The company demonstrated its new technology at this year’s Wall Street Journal’s D: All Things Digital conference. Using it, a person is able to pop bubbles that appear in the air in front of them, for example, by simply reaching out and “poking” them with a fingertip. Another application allows users to slice virtual fruit with their finger.To create such effects, the system combines augmented reality with sensors similar to those in a Kinect device, incorporating a gyroscope, accelerometer and Wi-Fi antenna. That means the virtual objects that are created can come from the Internet. Representatives for the company at the conference said the goal is create a transformative device that will allow people to access data and information in an entirely new way. Natural gestures, they contend, are the means by which truly immersive devices should operate. To that end, devices running the new system are controlled by voice commands and hand gestures.The new technology, in essence, takes what Google and others are trying to achieve with project Glass and other similar devices and adds both a 3D element and the ability to manipulate them. Virtual objects can be created that appear to exist in the real world. A person could read a newspaper, company reps noted, using goggles outfitted with their new technology that have moving pictures similar to those seen in the Harry Potter movies. Animated objects could literally leap off the page, grabbing the reader’s attention.Atheer Labs is also demonstrating restraint with the new technology; users are allowed to choose which sort of information reaches their device and an option is included that disallows the device from working in an area where such devices have been banned. They added also that the new technology is still under development and thus no time frame for delivering a product has been set. Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

Darjeeling: Bengal is all set to be promoted as a tourist destination in Europe. For this, a familiarisation tour will be organised soon, whereby renowned tour operators from Europe will be taken around the state to familiarise them with the tourist destinations.”We have plans to tap the European market. Very soon, we will organise a familiarisation programme for tour operators of Europe. The tour operators will be taken around Bengal to familiarise them with the destinations. North Bengal will form an integral and important part of this programme,” said Thendup Namgyal Sherpa, joint director, Tourism department.

However, the potential is still untapped in the avenue of adventure tourism and tea tourism,” added the joint director. The impetus at present by the government is on home stays. “Tourists want to taste local cuisines, experience the culture and want to get a feel of Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in statethe place. Home stays provide the perfect opportunity for this. The process of registration of home stays has begun and we are coming out with a clear cut policy on home stays,” stated Sherpa. The focus is on selling Bengal with intense marketing in all travel marts in the country and across the globe. “However, in national platforms we see at times that there is absence of aggressive marketing. We are doing our part. The stakeholders have to come forward as well and be a part of the journey together,” added Sherpa. Majority of the domestic tourists in Bengal hail from the southern part of the country. The state government has come up with travel guide books and will soon come up with destination-specific brochures. “We will also give emphasis to thematic tourism promotion,” said the joint director. The importance of North Bengal as a tourist destination could be gauged to an extent by the increase in the number of passengers at the Bagdogra Airport. “Bagdogra has evolved as a major airport in the country. A major airport handles over 20 lakh passengers annually. There are 22 major airports in the country. Last year, Bagdogra saw a footfall of 29 lakh passengers,” stated Subramani P, director, Bagdogra Airport. Bagdogra was originally designed as a small airport with a passenger handling capacity of 75,000 passengers annually.
