All You Need to Know About Night vision Equipment

by Rory H. Hawkins

Night Vision is an optical device consisting of high-quality image intensifier tubes and optics that amplify existing light. The Night Vision makes it possible for you to see in conditions that are otherwise not possible for naked eyes. Night vision products are empowered with Infrared Illuminator that provides a light source for the system. The light source amplifies the images and as a result we can see the objects in dark. We can see the objects in low light conditions as well such as in dark caves, where there is no source of available ambient light.

The working principle of a Night Vision is not at all complex. It is quite interesting on the contrary. In very dark conditions, the night vision gathers any available light like starlight, moonlight or infrared light through its front Objective Lens. The objective lens transmits this light through a set of optical lenses and passes it to the Electronic Intensifier Tube (EIT.). Located on the front of the Electronic Intensifier Tube is the photocathode screen that rap out electrons to produce a high level of energy.

A high static field is generated from EIT that pushes the electrons at the back of the EIT. This is a very sensitive layer and is known as phosphorescent screen. The electrons gathered, strike the Phosphorescent Screen with indefinite high speed and allow it to illuminate. During this process, an image is produced that gets magnified by the Ocular Lens located at the back of the Night Vision. The ocular lens makes it possible for us too se in the dark.

The image that you perceive in the Night Vision is not at all clear at the initial level. It appears as an indistinct, blurred green color. The Ocular Lens slowly makes the adjustment that fits your eyesight.

There are different types of Night Vision glasses available in the market are Generation1, Night Vision Monocular, Advanced Night Vision, Night Vision Binocular and the Audio Monocular. The Generation 1 works without active infra red light source. It amplifies the existing light several thousand times to make our vision clear in the dark. It is a low budget night vision and most popular all across the world. The other types of Night Vision are for specific purposes only and quite expensive too. They are mostly used by professionals and are not for ordinary fun and adventure loving persons.

RUN! Hide your vegies! The Ware-Rabbit Lives!

Yahoo News:LONDON (AFP) - In a tale reminiscent of the last Wallace and Gromit movie, furious villagers in northeast England have hired armed guards to protect their beloved communal vegetable gardens from a suspected monster rabbit.

Leeks, Japanese onions, parsnips and spring carrots have all been ripped up and devoured by the mystery were-rabbit -- prompting the 12 allotment holders in Felton, north of Newcastle, to hire two marksmen with air rifles and orders to shoot to kill.

"It is a massive thing. It is a monster. The first time I saw it, I said: 'What the hell is that?'" the Northumberland Gazette newspaper quoted local resident Jeff Smith, 63, as saying on its website (

He claims to have seen the black and brown rabbit -- with one ear bigger than the other -- about two months ago, and at least three fellow allotment holders say they have seen it as well.

"I have seen it and it is bigger than a normal rabbit. It's eating all our crops and we grow the best stuff here," said retired miner George Brown, 76, quoted by the domestic Press Association news agency.

Smith could not be reached for comment Friday, but his mother told AFP that the hare-raising story is true -- and no less an authority than the British Rabbit Council said it was credible.

"Certain breeds do grow very big, like the Continental Giant" which can be 66 centimeters (26 inches) in length or more, a spokesman for the Nottinghamshire-based council, which represent rabbit breeders, told AFP.

In the last hit movie featuring Wallace and his dog Gromit, the two cartoon characters battled a monster rabbit that was cutting a swathe of destruction through locals' prize vegetable plots.

Toast on a stick anyone?

I suppose I should ramble tonight about the Flavor Wave Oven.

After burning almost everything I put my hands to, *keep that fire alarm plugged in*. I’ve got too many things to do, so I’m always multi-tasking, and when I cook I run off to do other things … but then I forget I was cooking … and … opps, toast again.

Today I found hiding in a closet, like are many thing that Mom bought and never got around to using, or bought for backups, (she had enough Christmas gifts stashed away for years to come), *ahem*, I found a “Flavor Wave Oven”. It’s a convection oven, the first model no doubt (#20007). This oven has a TIMER on it, *joy*, that’s what I need. Something to stop the burning process that I begun and forgot about.

But I found no manual for it, and wasn’t sure if I was operating it correctly. Naturally I can push enough buttons to figure anything out, but how they though it would be operated and how I’m deciphering it, might be separate realities. So I looks for a manual in the great ether of knowledge, and Shazzam, I find Thane who now markets it. Mine was made by Hearthware (TM) Home Products, but remember mine is the original *lightning, thunder, echo* “Flavor Wave Oven”. (Oven, not Onion, I keep wanting to say onion. I must still be hungry)

I found the Thane site here. And they actually have their manuals available for download here.

So now I’ve found a great Oven to do my burning for me :-) I can set it and if I forget, it shuts down, unlike my stove and oven. I really like convection ovens anyway. I hate microwaves, I don’t use them! Microwaves are for radio communications, not for mounting in your kitchen. Dangerous on your health, and on your food. Try watering a plant from microwaved water (cooled back down) and see if it lives.

Perhaps I’ll let you know how this all works out. Cheers.
Let the flames begin.

Cutting edge, or over the edge?

So you’re looking for some “out-there” stuff are you?  After all, this is ‘tHe wARp cOiL ReLoadEd’. Then try some of these on for size:
Jeff Rense is on the edge sometimes, but probably more on the right side then he looks --

Alex Jones and his InfoWars and PrisonPlanet is on the cutting edge, this is a must see, visit it often.  This site I will endorse --  &

And try this one too --

Check out this video --

I know that’s not much, but those there will take you quite some time to digest, so have at it, and keep your head up.

May Day, and you thought Communism was dead.

If communism is dead, and the cold war is over, then why do they still celebrate May Day and have their military parade in Russia?!?

1.5 million people participated in May Day rallies in Russia.  In Switzerland, Sweden, Chile & Turkey protesters clashed with police, and demonstrators denouncing the International Monetary Fund and the U.S.

Under communist rule, an annual parade in Moscow’s Red Square marked the international labor holiday known as May Day. Although the parade honored the working people of the Soviet Union, communist leaders such as Joseph Stalin, used the event to display the country’s military forces and to honor themselves.

Associated Press reports that THIS year:
“communists in Russia honored Lenin and Marx.”
“Some of the biggest traditional gatherings were in Moscow, where 25-thousand people gathered to hear speeches from trade union leaders and the city mayor.”
“Meanwhile, communists marched from a square where there is a statue of Lenin to their usual rallying spot opposite the Bolshoi Theatre, where there's a statue of Karl Marx.”

Hmmm, response, interesting

So I write a little gibberish and it sells.  Interesting.  I seem to have moved far from my being a journalistic reporter, to just a dull blogger.  What’s become of me?!?  Perhaps I’ll wake up soon and get out of the rabbit hole – or not.

The day here was striking, and yet had a chill to it that one couldn’t bring himself to accept.  Why it looked so nice, and it’s been so warm, and after all – it’s supposed to be spring isn’t it?  The mind just couldn’t bring it’s self to understanding just why it had to turn the heat on with such a sunny day as it was.  Why it’s 230am now, and it’s just as warm as it was in the bloody daylight.

Watched a couple movies this even.  Too much cussing going on.  I know we don’t want censorship, but what about morals, can we get some of them!?  That would help the foul mouth problem, and many others as well.
