Power Shift 2011: New Date, New Venue, Still Bigger and Better Than Ever

By Caroline Selle, Power Shift 2011 Fellow

Remember Power Shift 2009? The hallways of the DC Convention Center were flooded with thousands of people from all across the country. In our bright green shirts, we attended hundreds of trainings and workshops and rocked out to performances by Santigold and the Roots.

Well, we have some important news. The DC Convention Center -- the largest available space in the city -- just opened up. The dates of Power Shift 2011 have moved to April 15 - 18 to take advantage of this exciting opportunity.

We just launched the official Power Shift Facebook event: RSVP today and invite all your friends!

The larger space means that we’ll be able to offer more opportunities to everyone attending Power Shift: more trainings and workshops, more chances to meet people, and a more central location to all the city has to offer. And, we want to hear your ideas on how to use the space. In the upcoming weeks we'll be asking for your feedback and suggestions so you can help design Power Shift 2011.

We have other great news as well. Right now, we're #1 in the Refresh Everything contest and on the verge of winning $50,000 for Power Shift scholarships. Vote here every day to keep us at the top of the list. We're going to use the money to get students from every corner of the country to DC.

Power Shift 2011!If you want to make sure that your community is represented, sign up to be a Power Shift Coordinator today. Right now, over 437 leaders have signed up. Let's make sure that anyone who wants to on your campus or in your community has the chance to participate.

We're looking forward to seeing you in DC this spring. Don't forget -- we've moved the date to April 15 - 18 so we can fill the Convention Center once again. We'll take over those hallways and then move on to Congress.

See you in DC!

Maybe this sort of thing can make us become more aware of the importance of a transparent form of economy in the absence of corruption. This indeed is the standard that I believe must be met within a country. Especially, if the country wants progress. Bantry

Avions téléguidés - un

Avions téléguidés - un passe-temps en plein essor
Les avions RC sont l'un des hobbies à plus forte croissance qui soit, pour ne pas mentionner l'un des plus amusants. Vous pouvez acheter un kit (ou même découper le bois vous-même), construire un avion, puis utilisez votre télécommande pour piloter votre création autour du parc. Ces dernières années, leur popularité a même commencé à rattraper les voitures télécommandées: les voitures pourraient être amusantes, bien sûr, mais savent-elles voler? Non!
Alors, comment fonctionnent les avions RC? En gros, la télécommande que vous tenez envoie des ondes radio grâce à l'air à l'avion, lui disant quoi faire. Les récepteurs sur l’avion effectuent alors vos actions pour déplacer les ailes et d'autres parties, tout comme les contrôles sur un avion réel envoient des signaux pour déplacer mécaniquement les parties - après tout, il serait presque impossible pour un pilote de déplacer un avion sans assistance mécanique. Les avions RC ont gagné en popularité ces dernières années car leur technologie a avancé à pas de géant. Il y a une décennie, par exemple, les gens utilisaient encore en des carburants comme l'essence pour faire voler leurs avions, mais la technologie d'aujourd'hui a évolué au point où des maquettes d'avions peuvent voler à l'aide uniquement de l'électricité.
Deux critères les plus importants pour un débutant d'avion sont: 1- sa durabilité 2- sa stabilité en vol. Comme vous le savez sans doute déjà, faire voler un avion RC nécessite beaucoup d'essais et d'erreurs lorsque vous venez juste de commencer. Les crashs et les atterrissages difficiles sont tout à fait normaux pendant les premiers vols, en particulier pendant le décollage et l'atterrissage. Vous ne voulez pas d'un avion qui se brise avec juste quelques atterrissages difficiles, parce que cela va vous coûter beaucoup de temps et d'argent, que vous devriez dépenser pour l'apprentissage des bases du vol. Choisissez un avion très robuste et durable et vous économiserez beaucoup de temps, d'efforts et d'argent de réparation et la recherche de pièces détachées.
Lalarola.com est un bon site pour commander des avions et hélicoptères RC, avec différents modèles proposés pour satisfaire toutes les bourses.
