The word you are looking for is **optometrist**. An **optician** works in the glasses/contacts field in dispensing the lenses and fitting the glasses/contacts to your face. Source: Wife is an optician.
Steel tubes have much more natural rigidity than steel sheet metal, requiring less metal overall to provide adequate stiffness. Also, since a mountain bike must be significantly sturdier than a city cruiser, that comparison is a bit apples to oranges. You could build this
The line is called “Livingstones” and they start at ~$75 for the ~1ft sized stones [for anyone curious](http://shop.smarin.net/en/7-cushions-pebbles-livingstones-smarin). 100% wool. The “techincal sheet” on [this page](http://www.smarin.net/en/collections/livingstones-11-1-0.html) is pretty cool too, it shows all the different sizes and shapes and has some more pictures. I’ve
Oh stop! （＾∇＾）I lived in Japan for two years, in Fukuoka-ken, Amagi-shi. 福岡県の甘木市. I was wondering if you might be from the south too. Near me was a town called 朝倉 Asakura where many of the kamikaze pilots came from the local high schools.
I love this. What is it made from? It looks like the zipped part is just a sheet and not likely meant as a blanket making direct contact with the sleeper. It also looks like satin, so it would rarely need washing, despite the
[Here’s an article about the watch.](http://www.boredpanda.com/astronomical-watch-midnight-planetarium-van-cleef-and-arpels-christian-van-der-klaauw/) The Van Cleef & Arpels website doesn’t say much about the watch, but there’s a link to the site from the *Bored Panda* article.

You guys did catch that this was from 1929, right? The design fits the era well. [Here](http://outlet.sale.de/images/outlets/jacques_heim_logo.gif) is a link to the current logo.
If it’s not practical, it’s not good design and therefore not designporn. > Design (noun) a specification of an object, manifested by an agent, **intended to accomplish goals**, in a particular environment, using a set of primitive components, **satisfying a set of requirements, subject
Those are quite a bit smaller than this one.

[Here](http://www.designboom.com/weblog/cat/10/view/17538/miami-airport-installation-harmonic-convergence-by-christopher-janney.html) are bigger / more pictures and a few diagrams, as well as a brief explanation. Also, [the designer’s page about the project](http://janneysound.com/urban-musical-instruments/harmonic-convergence/) has more info, including photos, videos, and words on his intentions behind it.
Usually the argument is between *just intonation* or *equal temperament*. I’m not familiar with the phrase “true temperament” but i guess it probably refers to some kind of just intonation. #Just intonation In Just intonation, all intervals are defined as simple fractions of the
I’ve noticed the going rates on eBay climb considerably in the last few years. I won this clock in 2006 for $32 and now I see people asking near $100 for the same model in inferior condition to the specimen I have. Back in
Everytime I see this its from the two angles I already know. I wanna see the top and back. It’s a 3d object, it has more than 2 sides, and as such, it should look good from all sides if actually is designed well.

I try to use a mix of both, but mostly I use sketching to flesh out any initial concepts. Sometimes it’s easier to go into Illustrator and mess around with different elements (thank you pathfinder tool.) Whenever I’m working with a client, though, I
I imagine this could work if they’re soft chew cookies, and being packed right on the spot at a cookie stand like [Boston Chipyard](http://s3-media4.ak.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/MQDnv87tnIHWdfLkWP6y8Q/l.jpghttp://s3-media4.ak.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/MQDnv87tnIHWdfLkWP6y8Q/l.jpg)
Hate to be that guy, but in a lecture about Frank Lloyd Wright, the design of the building is horrible. The seals on the glass atrium weren’t that good and caused leaks within the whole building. Also the curved stairways don’t actually have stairs;
Yep, looks pretty photoshopped. Also the mirrored font has these blurry wobbly edges. On first glaze it looks normal because it’s a fluid but the reflection would still look sharp no matter how wobbly that fluid is, as long as it’s dark and filling
$120?! Wow, now I’m seriously considering to get one. I’ve been thinking about getting a classic, simple watch, but I was under the impression that anything vaguely reminiscent of quality would cost ten times that. I assume it was recommended to you because it’s
if you’re in the UK we are the official UK stockist. this may ( excuse the pun) sound bias but these really do sound awesome. everything just comes out balanced. you’ll hear the tops and the bass. Even better if you plug them into
This entire argument sounds like an old curmudgeon criticizing the kids these days and telling a “back in my day” story. As someone who also does algorithmic design and has products 3D printed, you have no clue. >As they say, ideas are worthless (unless
Speaking as a mediocre downhill skateboarder ~~this design is catastrophic. From moving from your aerodynamic tuck to a sliding/turning position you need to slide your feet a few inches and/or in different directions. Those holes could catch your shoes in transition and move the
