Off-line – 13 Oct , The s was not a good time to innovate in toolmaking. The second world war meant that many Sheffield manufacturers switched to armament production, and even for those still making tools, steel would soon have been in short supply. So, as a generalisation, tool making slowed down or stopped for the duration. After the war, it took a long time for production to pick up again, what with war damage and the loss of many skilled workers.
So by the time things were ‘back to normal’ much of the market for hand tools had disappeared, ready for small electric motors to become widely available and change everything again. That’s one reason why Marples planes are relatively rare, though they did at least continue to make them. I have a Woodworker magazine which features a supplement listing all the planes generally available then, with prices, and Marples are there alongside Stanley, Record and Woden.
Of course, the pictures are not in colour, so there is no help there. Another factor to bear in mind is that almost everything branded as Marples could also be had branded as Sorby – same tools, same price. I don’t know of any published studies that will help you, but it’s very likely that there will be relevant information in the Hawley Collection – catalogues, accounts and mint samples of tools in their original boxes. It’s a huge resource with a handful of dedicated volunteers looking after it.
I’m sure they would be welcome you if you wanted to make a study – but you’d have to go to Sheffield to do it. Andy By Phil – 13 Oct ,
The rules on this page originally comprised two main categories. Alcohol slide rule by J Long, London, made of boxwood and probably dating from the early twentieth century. The rule is almost certainly from a box containing a Sikes hydrometer, which it would have been used in conjunction with see Miscellaneous instruments pages. This appears to be primarily a gauging rule for determining the content of casks whether standing or lying and also functions as a comparative rule.

List of fossil bird genera From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigation Jump to search For a list of birds extinct in Late Quaternary prehistoric times and usually known from specimens not completely fossilized, see List of Late Quaternary prehistoric bird species. For birds that have gone extinct since the year , see List of recently extinct bird species. A replica of the Berlin specimen of Archaeopteryx , most famous of prehistoric “birds”.
Modern research considers it unlikely to be a bird ancestor, though it was certainly a close relative of these. Birds evolved from certain feathered theropod dinosaurs, and there is no real dividing line between birds and dinosaurs , except of course that some of the former survived the Cretaceous—Paleogene extinction event while the latter did not. For the purposes of this article, a ‘bird’ is considered to be any member of the clade Aves sensu lato.
This page contains a listing of prehistoric bird taxa only known from completely fossilized specimens. These extinctions took place before the Late Quaternary and thus took place in the absence of significant human interference. While the earliest hominids had been eating birds and especially their eggs, human population and technology was simply insufficient to seriously affect healthy bird populations until the Upper Paleolithic Revolution.
Rather, reasons for the extinctions listed here are stochastic abiotic events such as bolide impacts, climate change due to orbital shifts, mass volcanic eruptions etc.
This is the text of my keynote speech at the 34th Chaos Communication Congress in Leipzig, December You can also watch it on YouTube, but it runs to about 45 minutes. As a working science fiction novelist, I take a professional interest in how we get predictions about the future wrong, and why, so that I can avoid repeating the same mistakes.
Science fiction is written by people embedded within a society with expectations and political assumptions that bias us towards looking at the shiny surface of new technologies rather than asking how human beings will use them, and to taking narratives of progress at face value rather than asking what hidden agenda they serve.

Sir Richard Weston – The founder of the Wey Navigation, Weston was an agricultural reformer who introduced revolutionary new land management practices that were to transform British farming. Owner of Sutton Place near Guildford, Weston was to build the canal after his experimentation with controlled flooding of pastures to boost hay yields. Weston is credited with introducing white clover and turnips into Britain. White clover is a protein rich fodder crop for cattle that has the added benefit of replacing nitrogen into the soil.

Marxism , first developed by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels , has been the foremost ideology of the communist movement. Marxism considers itself to be the embodiment of scientific socialism and rather than model an “ideal society” based on intellectuals’ design, it is a non-idealist attempt at the understanding of society and history through an analysis based in real life. Marxism does not see communism as a “state of affairs” to be established, but rather as the expression of a real movement, with parameters which are derived completely from real life and not based on any intelligent design.
At the root of Marxism is the materialist conception of history , known as historical materialism for short. It holds that the key characteristic of economic systems through history has been the mode of production and that the change between modes of production has been triggered by class struggle. According to this analysis, the Industrial Revolution ushered the world into a new mode of production:
