  1. following on from post #161 In both of these calculations I assume the structures being square, level and plumb. I think that's a reasonable thing. Obviously there will be slight deviations and errors compounded by a not so clear photo as well as the how of choosing lines of projection by eye. Nevertheless, such a derived Azimuth of 212.3 giving a time of 14.10 + and a derived Elevation giving a time of 14.00 + is an indication that this way of working out the time of a photo in a particular place on a particular day is useful. A number of more careful derivation may lead to more precise
  2. Just for fun I calculated the time of the photo on post 93 using an online right angle calculator, a pythagoras theorem calculator and a us navy sun table calculator and found the time to be just past two o'clock. 13:50 32.3 207.1 14:00 31.3 209.6 < I found the elevation to be 31.5 degrees. 14:10 30.2 212.0 This table also tells that the Azimuth (E of N) is 209.6+ at that time. I can use that to double check. ie that must be the Azimuth as derived from the photo. I should also compute error margins. Later. http://aa.usno.navy.mil/cgi-bin/aa_altazw.pl?
  3. MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. The command of Ukraine’s armed forces are moving their headquarters and control centers closer to the line of engagement in Donbass as part of preparations for an offensive, Eduard Basurin, a spokesman for the defense ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), said on Tuesday. "According to our reconnaissance, the headquarters and control centers of the 72nd and 128th brigades of the Ukrainian army are being moved from the rear of the Kiev’s force operation in Donbass closer to the line of engagement. This fact testifies that Ukraine’s military p
  4. Denounces Against Poroshenko Affect Creation of Alliance in Ukraine Kiev, Apr 5 (Prensa Latina) The publication of the so-called Panama Papers, with allegations of corruption against President Petro Poroshenko, decrease the chances of creating a new parliamentary coalition in Ukraine, said a member of the Parliament. Svetlana Zalishchuk, deputy of the Petro Poroshenko block said that, in contrast to the government and parliament, the president seemed to be an institution that enjoyed relative credibility. The war of "all against all" is entering a new
  5. I now looked at the two different photos at link (post 131) to robins. Obvious. Away from corner by wall, on landing, not step, in shadow, cup, ~5.4 ft..
  6. The person is standing near the corner having an after lunch cuppa in a white mug. If it had sun shining on it it would be much brighter. The persons presence didn't register well as eyes are adjusting to dark after the bright sun when heading back indoors.

  10. Read also Source says two Donbass militia fighters were killed by sniper fire last night MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. Ukrainian forces have moved artillery, heavy weaponry, ammunition and volunteer battalions to the contact line on Gorlovka and Mariupol directions, the spokesman for defense ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Eduard Basurin said on Wednesday. "DPR intelligence continues registering movement and build-up of military weaponry along the contact line," Donetsk News Agency quoted Basurin as saying. He noted that Ukrainian forces moved five self-propelled
  11. off top of head : One way to look at it is that the closer the figure is to the corner the less of it is obscured. iow. If it is LHO then knowing his shoulder width and the location of the camera it should be possible to work out where the figure is with a set shoulder width by working out how much of the backgound is obscured. ?
  12. At first look I think you need to establish the angle between true north and line A-B. (triangle abc horizontal) This plus the angle between line A-B and line A-C gives the westward angle of the sun. The angle between X-Y and Y-Z gives the elevation of the sun and a sun chart of the date, lat, long, will give the time of day. (I think. Prob use some wrong words but thats roughly it. If the people weren't there the shadow would be along the red line. Not including minor things like column plinths etc.) edit add: a few corrections. A bit quick off the mark there. You need to establish true

  15. That's a very broad, almost meaningless, stroke, Ernie. It applies to every single news print article ever written, every polemic, biography, monologue. Biased in favour of ones own view and in turn ones own view becomes just that.
  16. See, it seems it is a stupid question as knowing this: "CHAPTER 7000 http://tfm.fiscal.tr...v2/p4/c700.html PROCEDURES FOR PROCESSING POSTAL MONEY ORDERS Appendix B – Processing Postal Money Orders Purchaser of the PMO designate a “Payee” and fills out the purchaser’s information Purchaser pays for the PMO – Postal clerk tears PMO from stub and hands to Purchaser Purchaser provides PMO to designated Payee for deposit in exchange for goods/services Payee endorses the back of the PMO and deposits PMO in their Bank The Bank will then PROCESS the PMO, adding whatever marks, electronic or o
  17. I'm not. I imagine a scenario of money transfers. Then I try to see if it fits the needs of simplifying a manual process and saving lots of money. When a money order is 'cashed' at the postoffice by a relatively high volume client it is honoured by the post office by stamping it and then arranging a money transfer as per the order which is then retired to storage. Believe me, there is nothing desperate about it at all. It's just a stupid question that obviously has triggered off something.
  18. I'm thinking official rubber stamp in this instance with the bank name, then the account number and name of the account to which this money is transferred to. Used at the post office where klein's take their stacks of orders to be paid (into account). It's then stamped to be paid to the bank to that account. From that and other stacks a specific disbursement money order is issue internally to deal with the periods collated orders.? edit add once stamped and stacked they are read by a tabulation data processing machine machine. The bank then receipts that transfer and and in time issue a bank
  19. "And see page 211, section 762.11a: "Disbursement Postal Money Orders have words of negotiability -- "Pay to the Order of" -- printed on their face, while other postal money orders simply bear the words "Pay to" on their face."" - a postal money order converted to an internal disbursement money order by being stamped on the back?
  20. Sorry if this is a stupid question. What does the stamp on the back mean? I try to think of something. Is not the PAY TO THE ORDER OF The First National Bank of Chicago 50 91144 KLEIN'S SPORTING GOODS, INC. where the numbers are an account number and the name the name of the account? Maybe in being stamped with the words of a disbursement money order it signifies as having re-entered the postal system which means as far as the account holder is concerned it has been paid? edit clarification, typos
