F1 teams and drivers changes from 2009 to 2010

I made this image to make easier for me to understand the changes between teams and drivers from 2009 to 2010.

As you can see, there are 6 places still available, as some teams haven’t decided yet which drivers will be in their cockpit during the next season.

One team is withdrawing (Toyota) and 4 entering (Lotus, Campos, US F1 and Virgin Racing).

Thanks to 3D Export (images) and F1 Fanatics (data).

Walnuts

As nozes que compramos no Brasil, na casca dura, não caem assim da árvore! Eu achava que era assim que ela nascia, num pinheiro, como viamos nos desenhos do Tico e Teco, com a casca seca e dura.

Mas conforme podemos ver nesta foto, a verdade é que elas possuem uma casca externa verde e mais mole, que deve ser removida antes. Com a noz bem madura (quando caem no chão) fica fácil de tirar.

E a árvore é no formato de angiospermas comuns, e não pinheiros.

Windows media errors

Foto de TV de plasma LG 50 polegadas de R$ 2.729,00, na vitrine do shopping Diamond Mall, em Belo Horizonte. Parece bacana, o problema é o programa que resolveram usar para ficar rodando as animações, Windows Media, deu pau, e ficou mostrando por horas a famosa mensagem ‘este programa realizou uma operação ilegal e precisa ser fechado’.

Update: No shopping Patio Savassi, outro computador, em outra loja, usando o mesmo aplicativo e exibindo a mesma mensagem de erro.

The best place to stay in Sheffield over summer: Opal One

I’ve been in sheffield last year and my tip for those who need accommodation from July to September is Opal One.

Opal is probably the nearer hall of residence, just 2 blocks from West Street and Tesco. I used to live in Endcliffe Village too and that one is quite far away and up the hill.

Opal One is always fully booked for the academic year (and for the next couple of years too) but there are plenty of rooms available during summer break.

And the best of all is that you can get a good discount. Talk to Richard, the manager at the reception desk. Tell him that you know Luis, the Brazilian guy.
