Hey again, readers, this is Thursday. A couple of weeks ago, the plot dealt with water routes to the interior of Finland, and your columnist was tossing the maps right on the contract. Many sent scolding mail. The first power plant on the Oulujoki River is not Muhos, but Merikoski in the center of Oulu, beyond which the river can only be reached from the Bay of Bothnia by fish.
Another toll was also included in the answer. The longest waterway according to the Water Act does not take you to Kiuruvesi to Iisalmi, but to Iisalmi and the city that follows from it, which is called Kiuruvesi.
Another question dealt with car bows. Juhani Koskinen writes that car headlights were only dangerous until they were banned. In the EU, a directive was passed in 1974 requiring bow ornaments over a centimeter in height to bend or flex. For example, in new Rolls-Royce cars, the bow trim retracts when the impact is encountered inside the bonnet.
I have been wishing for a week after week Saturday’s unwelcome batch of beautiful songs, but to no avail. I have begun to doubt whether my hopes are hopeless. Is passing a wish as difficult as winning the lottery? It would also be interesting to know how many wishes come true at all. Is it easier to win the lottery than to have a wish song on the radio?
– Hope lost hope
The broadcaster has broadcast Saturday unwanted since 1935. The structure of the wish concert has always remained the same: first classical and then the most popular music for decades towards modernity.
All the songs are what the audience wants. There are about a hundred hopes a week. With 12 to 14 songs in an hourly program, random sampling would have a more than ten percent chance of passing the wish – which is more than ten times better than getting four correctly in the Lottery.
Of course, the probability can be improved with suitable wishes. The lord of Tikkaremmi says that no wish is hopeless as long as the song fits into Yle Radio 1’s general music line. So metal or similar hard music is not played, but otherwise the genres don’t matter.
The probable reason for the unfulfilled beautiful wish is that the song has been heard on the program for about a year, when it will not be played again. Saaremaa waltz is therefore heard once a summer.
By far the most sought after is 1950s entertainment music and 1960s pop, music from the youth of the program’s largest audience, so it’s relatively hardest to get through.
If you want to maximize the probability of a hit, you should take advantage of the program’s educational tradition. The weekly wish vocal package must be as diverse as possible and not a hit parade: different decades, genres, musical cultures and singing languages.
So you should hope for songs in German, French or Italian, for example, rather than music in Finnish or English. Because the music made by men is focused on desires, the female soloist also improves the chances of going through.
Usually both wishes can be dug out of something. Most of them can be found in Yle’s record, but every now and then the record’s digital attendant hunts songs with cats and dogs from online music stores or digitizes songs from old clay discs.
Yet the weekly reporter is on the verge of wonder: how anyone has even known about such a rare and wonderful song.
I came across a picture of the mouth of a volcano filled with hot lava and where a drone camera had been flown. It suggested me to imagine I was inside a shimmering molten rock. How can a dense body coming from the earth’s furnace turn into glowing light when heated?
The glow of the discharges is caused by electromagnetic radiation. All objects with a temperature above the absolute zero point emit thermal radiation. The distribution of the wavelengths of the radiation depends on the temperature of the body. For example, animals tend to emit more infrared radiation than their surroundings, so they can be detected in the dark with an infrared camera.
The hotter the object, the more it radiates. At the same time, the share of shorter wavelengths in the total wavelengths of radiation increases. Wavelengths shorter than infrared radiation radiate in the visible light range. Its longest wavelengths, on the other hand, are red wavelengths. When a piece is hot enough, it starts to show up in our eyes as a red glow because the radiation from the heat movement starts to contain enough red light.
In addition, it is worth noting that the magma coming from deep inside the earth is glowing orange at its coolest. The really hot and solid rock that makes up the earth for the most part has melted into magmas. Magma is relatively light in relation to its environment and therefore rises towards the ground. As they rise, the molten magmas cool further and begin to crystallize, but less frequently completely. When erupted to the surface, they give rise to beautiful and awe-inspiring volcanic eruptions.
At the so-called Draper point, i.e. at a temperature above 525 degrees, there is already a visible amount of visible light in the radiation. Iceland’s basaltic magmas are up to 1100 degrees, and so they glow really handsome.
