Comments and Suggestions for Gresham Meggett Oral History Project Kick-Off Meeting

Gresham Meggett Oral History Project Kick-Off Meeting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-Ii8Iwc-As This would be much better and more accessible if there were English captions and transcript. The auto translations to other languages is something that Google/YouTube does pretty well. Desegregation and oral history are global cross-cutting issues of interest to most cultures. But (oral history aside) the

Comment on Video Removing Heavy Wind Shake from FPV footage

Removing heavy wind shake from FPV footage at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDRJCyCKWfQ I have been collecting live video streams on the Internet for some time. I call the collection “shake wind”. Mainly beaches, bridges, mountains and places where the wind is fierce and the camera will often shake, sometimes violently. But the equation of motion of the camera is

Can You Modify A Car To Save Fuel? – Fifth Gear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39g5D7h7jf8 The weight reduction impact shows up if you start and stop as part of a test. Aerodynamic drag goes as the density of air times the velocity squared. You should have waited for a day identical to the first. You guys are in

Comment on Houston Astronomical Society website and practices

Debbie, First, your novice videos should be globally public on your website.  Either HAS is an organization devoted to all people knowing about the sky and heavens, or not.  Share openly.  If there are things specific to secure gatherings at private places, those should not be shared, but minimized or separate.  I tell groups like

Comment on Why does light slow down in water

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUjt36SD3h8 You explained part of the problem, but not why it follows those paths. That takes mathematics, and you did not use any. Memorizing animations might seem a way to learn processes and use them later, but equations, measurements and precise models are better. You could have at least shown the equations, and more, provided

Comment on Electret Mic: How it Works and How to Connect it to a Computer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqLhvg0I2BU Your microphone link says that particular model is “discontinued”. I use Amazon for convenience and there are several electret microphone items worth seeing at https://www.amazon.com/electret-microphone/s?k=electret+microphone They have the electret microphone elements, but there are also some “electret microphone amplifier” breakout boards that are inexpensive and might work. I ordered some, but have not tried

Comment on Applied Sciences Video – Measuring Human Digestive Efficiency vs a flame

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wZ0wTqJIxY I am fairly certain you are just seeing the fiber that is concentrated in the feces. It has about the same heating value per unit mass as the original, but indigestible. Most all the sugars, starches and lighter fats are likely to be used for energy – converted to energy, CO2 and water with

Comment on Nuclear Desalination Report

http://Article Nuclear Desalination: A State-of-the-Art Review Thank you for putting this together. This is a clear, and fairly complete, review of the issues, economics, performance and maintenance of nuclear desalination processors. I just wish that each site’s operational, financial and social impacts were public on the Internet in a form for comparison and optimization. Encouraging

Self reproducing robot societies that live in the desert and convert sunlight to cities

I have had deserts on my mind a lot over the last few decades.  All during the 1980’s I worked on populations forecasts and issues in Africa, then the Famine Early Warning Systems (FEWS.net), then global climate change.  I sort of keep up with any efforts to turn those vast areas into something more suitable
