Looking for traditional folk instruments?

Hi everyone :) Weekend is just round the corner and I am all set to relax myself with my friends by playing my favorite musical instruments. I am sure you all know that I love playing guitar and I have been doing so since many years. Recently, my friend got a brand new musical instrument and upon inquiring, I got to know that he had purchased a Banjo, a traditional folk instrument. BTW, that was the first time I was seeing a banjo, and it looked really good!

I just played it for a few minutes and I was completely hooked on to it. I was really happy playing it and that’s when I decided that I need to buy one for myself. He directed me to a very popular website that offers genuine musical instruments. So if any of my blog readers are looking forward to buy musical instruments, take a look at goodtime banjo online store and browse through hundreds of musical instruments before you make your choice!

World’s fastest supercomp built

China’s defense scientists have built the world’s fastest supercomputer, capable of performing 33.86 quadrillion operations per second, surpassing the US Titan supercomputer, according to survey results announced on Monday. The Tianhe-2 has a peak performance speed of 54.9 quadrillion operations per second, according to the National University of Defense Technology, which built the computer.

The computer’s predecessor, the Tianhe-1A, was the world’s fastest from November 2010 to June 2011, when it was surpassed by Japan’s K computer, state-run Xinhua News agency reported. Tianhe-2, or Milky Way-2, will be deployed at the National Supercomputer Centre in Guangzho, China, by the end of the year, according to TOP500, a project ranking the 500 most powerful computer systems in the world.

The surprise appearance of Tianhe-2, two years ahead of the expected deployment, marks China’s first return to the No.1 position since November 2010, when Tianhe-1A was the top system. Tianhe-2 has 16,000 nodes, each with two Intel Xeon IvyBridge processors and three Xeon Phi processors for a combined total of 3,120,000 computing cores.

The supercomputer Tianhe-2 is capable of operating as fast as 33.86 petaflops per second. It was ranked on Monday as the world’s fastest computing system, according to TOP500. Titan, a Cray XK7 system installed at the US department of energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory and previously the No.1 system, is now ranked No.2. According to TOP500 editor Jack Dongarra, who toured the Tianhe-2 development facility in May, the system is noteworthy in a number of aspects.

Army may be used to quell Turkey protests

Turkey’s deputy prime minister said on Monday the armed forces could be called up if needed to help quell popular protests that have swept Turkish cities in the last two weeks, the first time the possibility of a military role has been raised. Bulent Arinc made the remarks in Ankara, where 1,000 striking trade union workers faced off briefly against police backed by several water cannons, before police retreated and the crowd dispersed.

In Istanbul, the cradle of protests that have presented Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan with the greatest public challenge to his 10-year leadership, several hundred union members also marched in sympathy with the anti government protests. Police prevented them from entering Taksim Square, the focus of the unrest, which flared up again at the weekend with some of the fiercest clashes so far when police fired teargas and water cannon to clear them from the square.
