Eco Cycle - Japan Bike Storage
by. Dolvin ≈ April 8, 2009
Echo Cycle
One major deterrent for city bicyclists is lack of parking. Some Japanese cities have taken it upon themselves to remedy the problem with the Eco Cycle, a profoundly weird machine that takes your bike and parks it underground for safe-keeping. It costs 2,600 yen for a monthly ticket to use the park. Students pay 1,300 yen.
Eco Cycle @ Japan
This underground bicycle parking cylinders was impressed.
At each gate there is a simple card reader. One has to take out a monthly contract to use these ones but there are some around Tokyo where anybody can park their bicycle.

to use it... We just swipes our card and a few seconds later the doors open, and docks the front wheel of our bicycle there.

The ArchitectureThis is what the bicycle park looks like underground.

The Eco Cycle can store up to 144 bicycles underground - retrieval and storage in seconds. The longest it takes is 10 seconds.
The company who makes this is Giken who also make stuff like tidal and flood defense systems.

The Eco Cycle caters for bicycles which are less than 1,950mm in length and less than 1,250mm in height. Tyre size has to be less than 28 inches.
Interesting how the Japanese use a mixture of mm, cm and inches.

Why we need a compliment?
by. Dolvin ≈ March 11, 2009
ComplimentYou can lift anyone's spirit with a single comment. Compliments are one of the most extraordinary components of social life. If given right, they create so much positive energy that they make things happen as if by magic.
They ease the atmosphere around two people and kindly introduce people to each other. Of course, there is a way to give compliments. And, just as important, there is a way to receive them. You need to know how to do both.

People benefit from being the objects of compliments, but you also benefit being givers of them. Recipients benefit from knowing that you notice and learn that you value them. So compliments are powerful in motivating continued efforts. People strive to do more of what brings praise from others.

So, here are 5 reasons why it’s a good choice to use more genuine compliments in your day to day life.
  • You can make someone’s day. That’s a nice thing to do.
  • Increased positivity. Keeping your focus on the positive parts in people expands your own positivity. You’ll notice more positive things about yourself, your own life and other things in your surroundings. What you focus on in your everyday life you’ll see everywhere, not just in other people.
  • You get what you give. Don’t keep this in the forefront of your mind while giving a compliment. It may make the compliment seem insincere and like you are just out to get something from the other person. But still, people often have a strong feeling of wanting to give what they got. Perhaps not right away, but over time reciprocity and a positive relationship can build. And in general, what you give you tend to get back from the world around you.
  • Attractiveness. Positivity, appreciation and being able to genuinely express yourself are three attractive traits both in personal and professional relationships. People tend to want to hang around and work with people that have such traits.
  • It’s fun. When you give a genuine compliment you ignite a spark of happy feelings inside of yourself.

But sometimes we protest or object to the compliment, those answers instantly suck the positive energy out of the air and deflate the giver. They make the giver feel stupid for noticing and commenting on something so unworthy of praise. They totally invalidate the person's judgment.

So, the only one way to receive a compliment is graciously, with a smile.  

The art of receiving a compliment teaches us an important lesson about life. It tells us that how we feel is highly subjective, known only to us. And it isn't necessarily observable to the world.

If we allow ourselves to inhale the positive atmosphere created by compliments, it can be powerful enough to transform our feelings. ^^

Pink dolphin appears in US lake
by. Dolvin ≈ March 4, 2009
Yesterday I've got pink dolphin's article from my friend.. 
actually as I know Pink dolphin only shows in Southeast Asia.. but this.. Pink dolphin appears in US? hohoho... nice.. ^^
Pink Dolphin
The world's only pink Bottlenose dolphin which was discovered in an inland lake in Louisiana, USA, has become such an attraction that conservationists have warned tourists to leave it alone.

Charter boat captain Erik Rue, 42, photographed the animal, which is actually an albino, when he began studying it after the mammal first surfaced in Lake Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary, north of the Gulf of Mexico in southwestern USA.

Capt Rue originally saw the dolphin, which also has reddish eyes, swimming with a pod of four other dolphins, with one appearing to be its mother which never left its side.

Ur Avatar Image
by. Dolvin ≈ February 19, 2009
Do you know what is avatar meaning? hmmm..
Among people working on virtual reality and cyberspace interfaces, an avatar (sometimes AV or av) is an icon or representation of a user in a shared virtual reality. The term is sometimes used on MUDs, in computer role-playing games, and shared non-gaming universes such as Active Worlds, There, Second Life, and The Palace.

This definition has recently been applied to online virtual communities and Internet forums in particular, as a picture that a member/user of such a community/forum has elected to display alongside his or her contributions in order to represent him- or herself. Avatars have also become popular in instant messaging, and are sometimes referred to as buddy icons.
