The most expensive and largest destroyer built by the United States

The first of three commissioned destroyers, the Zumwalt, is the most expensive and largest destroyer built by the United States to date. The new destroyer’s exorbitant cost is almost seven billion dollars, and is the result of dozens of new prototype systems installed in the warship’s hull and control room. The Zumwalt can fire rocket propelled warheads as far as one hundred miles, and features a wave piercing hull and new stealth technology. While in excess of six-hundred meters long, the ship will only need about half the crew of a normal destroyer due to increased automated technology and weapon systems. The Zumwalt is by far the largest, heaviest, and most expensive destroyer built for the U.S. Navy in its existence.

The technology laden warship represents the Navy’s future as told by several high ranking Navy admirals, who had originally opposed the destroyer’s building due to its immense cost and inclusion of experimental technology that has yet to prove itself in battle. Though reviews are generally positive by military officials, there are still those who vehemently oppose the creation of this behemoth of a destroyer. Those not won over by the ship’s long range missile capabilities are quick to point out that it is not as effective in missile and point defense as other destroyers, who are primarily used for escort and fire support missions. The Zumwalt and ships like it would be increasingly vulnerable if it ever had to provide support close to the coastline, but its long range missile capabilities would render it unnecessary to loiter at close range to enemy weapon systems. However, a top heavy hull could leave the ship incredibly unstable at extreme conditions such as high winds and heavy waves.
The Zumwalt, and destroyers in construction like it, are now viewed as a crucial part of President Obama’s Asia-Pacific strategy. This plan sees increasing the number of long range and interdiction Navy ships patrolling off the coast of Asian countries in the Pacific. This new strategy was proposed in reaction to China’s influence as a rising world military power. The strategy places numerous destroyers and carriers in the region for quick responses any military action by countries long seen as potential adversaries to the United States.
However, the Zumwalt’s cost could potentially derail the program before it even churns out a dozen of the warships. The cost, originally predicted at three to four billion per ship, skyrocketed to seven billion after research and installation of experimental weapon systems was factored into the equation. The initial order of thirty-two dwindled to twenty-four, and then further to just seven. Months later the order was revised to just three of the expensive craft. The Zumwalt’s new technology could possibly bring huge change in the art of ship based warfare, but the prohibitive cost and dwindling production numbers may relegate this ground breaking craft to just a footnote in the Navy’s long history.

Submarine Structure & Systems: "The Submarine: Construction" pt2-2 1955 US Navy

The submarine shown at the end of the film is the USS Tusk, SS-426, a Balao class submarine which was sold to the Republic of China (Taiwan) in 1973, and, as of 2008, was still in use at Kaohsiung Naval Base, under the name Hai Pao, numbered SS-792.

USS Tusk (SS-426), a Balao-class submarine, was the only ship of the United States Navy to be named for the tusk, an alternate name for the cusk, a large edible saltwater fish related to the cod. Her keel was laid down on 23 August 1943 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by the Cramp Shipbuilding Company. She was launched on 8 July 1945 sponsored by Mrs. Carolyn Park Mills, and commissioned on 11 April 1946 with Commander Raymond A.

The Balao class was a successful design of United States Navy submarine used during World War II, and with 122 units built, the largest class of submarines in the United States Navy. An improvement on the earlier Gato class, the boats had slight internal differences. The most significant improvement was the use of thicker, higher yield strength steel in the pressure hull skins and frames, which increased their test depth to 400 feet (120 m). Tang actually achieved a depth of 612 ft (187 m) during a test dive, and exceeded that test depth when taking on water in the forward torpedo room while evading a destroyer.


The propulsion of the Balao-class submarines was generally similar to that of the preceding Gato-class. Like their predecessors, they were true diesel-electric submarines: their four diesel engines powered electrical generators, and electric motors drove the shafts. There was no direct connection between the main engines and the shafts.

Balao-class submarines received main engines from one of two manufacturers. Fairbanks-Morse supplied Model 38D8-⅛ opposed piston engines, and General Motors' Electro-Motive Diesel division supplied Model 16 V16 engines. Earlier Fairbanks-Morse boats received a 9-cylinder version of the Model 38D8-⅛, while boats from USS Sand Lance (SS-381) onward received 10-cylinder engines. Earlier GM boats received Model 16-248 engines, but beginning with USS Perch (SS-313) Model 16-278A engines were used. In each case, the newer engines had greater displacement than the old, but were rated at the same power; they operated at lower mean effective pressure for greater reliability...

Two manufacturers supplied electric motors for the Balao-class. Elliott Company motors were fitted primarily to boats with Fairbanks-Morse engines. General Electric motors were fitted primarily to boats with General Motors engines, but some Fairbanks-Morse boats received GE motors. Allis-Chalmers motors were to be used in SS-530 through SS-536, but those seven boats were cancelled before even receiving names.

Earlier submarines carried four high-speed electric motors (two per shaft), which had to be fitted with reduction gears to slow their outputs down to an appropriate speed for the shafts. This reduction gearing was very noisy, and made the submarine easier to detect with hydrophones. A handful of late Balao-class submarines received low-speed double armature motors which drove the shafts directly and were much quieter, but this improvement was not universally fitted until the succeeding Tench-class. As the diesel engines were not directly connected to the shafts, the electric motors had to drive the shafts all the time.

The Balao class was successful, and one of its class USS Archer-Fish (SS-311) brought down what remains the largest ship sunk by a submarine, the Japanese aircraft carrier Shinano (59,000 tons).

As of 2007 USS Tusk (SS-426), a Balao-class submarine, was one of the last two operational submarines in the world built during World War II. It was transferred to the Republic of China in the early 1970s...

YouTube now converting all 1080p video uploads to 3D

Last year, YouTube rolled out a beta feature that let users convert standard 2D videos to 3D with one click. While the feature is still in beta, YouTube is feeling confident enough in it to roll things out on a wider scale — now, every "short form" 1080p video uploaded to YouTube will automatically be converted to 3D. If you want to watch in 3D, there's now an option in the quality menu — just remember to bust out your 3D glasses.
YouTube also took a moment to explain some of the background on how its 3D conversion process works: part of the process involves machine learning based on the growing library of true 3D videos on YouTube. It also analyzes color, spatial layout, motion, and other video characteristics to estimate a depth map for each frame of a standard video. While we can't say this is a feature we've been longing for from YouTube, it's not that surprising to see the internet's biggest video site jump on the 3D bandwagon.

Google si ASUS planuiesc sa lanseze o tableta quad-core din seria Nexus care va costa 199$

Google si ASUS lucreaza de cateva luni de zile la o tableta quad-core care ar urma sa coste doar 199$ insa deocamdata prototipurile concepute de catre companii ridica pretul de achizitie pana la valoarea de 249$ si Google nu este prea multumita de acest lucru. Google vrea sa introduca o alternativa viabila pentru tableta Amazon Kindle Fire si produsul sau ar putea deveni exact ceea ce isi doreste compania. Vorbesc despre o tableta cu ecran de 7 inch care ar urma sa aiba un procesor quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 si la pretul de 199$ cred ca va fi extrem de cautata.
Desi tableta trebuia sa intre in productie in luna mai, Google a amanat planurile pentru a mai reduce 50$ din pretul final al dispozitivului si ramane de vazut daca decizia lor va fi una buna sau nu. Tableta lor va intra pe o piata in care nu exista prea multa concurenta deoarece Kindle Fire se vinde extrem de bine si restul tabletelor cu ecran de 7 inch nu prea au succes. Cu o tableta de acest gen Google ar putea afecta vanzarile tabletei iPad si ar putea fura o parte din cota de piata a produsului din Cupertino insa ramane de vazut cum se va prezenta “Google Nexus Tab”.

The Mountain View team plans to make some design changes and hopes to lower the price from the current $249. The tablet, made in partnership with Taiwan’s Asustek Computer, currently comes with a 7-inch screen, an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and is Wi-Fi-only. It runs Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. The $249 price tag on the current Google-Asustek tablet is higher than previous reports of a $149-$199 device. Amazon’s Kindle Fire, another 7-inch tablet that retails for $199, is the obvious competitor that Google will be taking on in that size and price range.
