RADIO OUTFITS DISGUISED AS FURNITURE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926

RADIO OUTFITS ? «., DISGUISED AS FURNITURE Wireless is becoming self-conscious, and is anxious to efface itself — to re semble anything rather than wireless. At the stands at the National Radio Exhibition, iu London this feature was the most notable development. Time and again, -when inspecting a set the salesman would quietly ob serve in effect: 'And, of course, we can deliver it in any cabinet you may desire; to match any piece of furniture.'* For long past this tendency has roost acutely affected the loud speaker. Now ifc masquerades in a variety of disguises — there still remains the horn principle in innumerable fanciful treatments, artistic and otherwise. But the ingenuity of the designer is directed towards a loud speaker that in its architecture is not assertive. Thus i at Olympia you have it in dainty, ?arved cabinettes executed in different woods. It appears in the shape of a elock in dull metal; from the walls it hangs like the ordinary picture. The latter is extremely in...

LIGHTNING HOW IT STRIKES [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926

LIGHTNING HOW IT STRIKES Fifty, years ago a lightning flash was; supposed to take place along the path of minimum electric resistance. After ward Lodge Igare reasons for ^opposing that it followed the path of -minimum electric inductance, and this is the orthodox theory at the present time, says a -writer in 'Nature' (London). We read: In a paper communicated to the Washington Academy of Sciences, N.E. Dorsey describes in detail the effects produced by a flash striking a tulip «ould have been produced by a great rush of 'carriers' analogous to the- well known cathode stream. If an electron attain a sufficiently high velocity it may generate a 'dart'» of electrons, tke leading elflctrone gaining energy at the expense of the trailing ones. A high-speed dart possesses a considerable amount of momentum, and can stride a correspondingly powerful blow. .lii tut: gjfiii,u:uuir i^ibe st/UUiru nit? molecules were so crowded thai Ihey could not pass transversely to ihe grain without actually ...
