I have been looking forward to this game for some time now, and why not, if past experience with the Total War series have anything to say, then this version will top them all. Who doesn’t like ninjas, samurais, and massive tactical battles. So lets go back in time when Japan wasn’t a place where weird random internet memes get their start and screaming porn stars fill your computer screen. This is the review for Shogun 2 Total War.
Ever wondered how much your hard earn Bison Dollars are worth.
Official website - OST – BGE.ZIP is the file name
Trent Reznor is said be in talks to start playing a vampire in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but I think he is a perfect Abraham Lincoln, I mean just take a look.
I say we start a petition right now to make this happen
Backward Pulling Force from a Forward Propagating Beam – Cornell University Library
A photon carries a momentum of, so one may anticipate light to “push” on any object standing in its path via the scattering force. In the absence of intensity gradient, using a light beam to pull a particle backwards is counter intuitive. Here, we show that it is possible to realize a backward scattering force which pulls a particle all the way towards the source without an equilibrium point. The underlining physics is the maximization of forward scattering via interference of the radiation multipoles. We show explicitly that the necessary condition to realize a negative (pulling) optical force is the simultaneous excitation of multipoles in the particle and if the projection of the total photon momentum along the propagation direction is small (as in some propagation invariant beams), attractive optical force is possible. This possibility adds “pulling” as an additional degree of freedom to optical micromanipulation.
