SAD END FOR THE BLUE OCEAN DRAGGER

blue-ocean-dragger-shipwreck-gloucester-ma-29-copyright-kim-smithEarly this morning crews from Cape Ann Marine, Under Pressure Construction, Tally’s, Harbormaster T. J. Ciarametaro, the D.P.W., police, and diver Ted Barnes arrived at Niles Beach to begin work dismantling the FV Blue Ocean dragger. Despite the rough seas and biting wind, tow lines were secured around the vessel by Cape Ann Marine and Ted Barnes. Under Pressure’s Chad Ketchopulos and crew dug a wide trench at the road that opens onto Niles Beach. It appeared the purpose of the trench was to help stabilize the tow trucks. Two Tally’s tow trucks were used to haul the Blue Ocean out of the water, the Merlin to drag the vessel across the beach and the second tow truck to brace the Merlin. By low tide, at 11:27am, the dragger was mostly out of the water, when work began to smash the boat to bits. Last check at 1:00pm and the Blue Ocean was almost entirely gone.

Innovation in Gloucester

My Super Talented Friend

Anyone who follows GMG knows how much we love our friends at Cape Ann Giclee, James and Anna Eves. Not only do they do amazing work, but they are incredibly kind and generous.

So, how happy was I to see that one of my favorite peeps in the world now has reproductions of her gorgeous paintings available at Cape Ann Giclee. One of the coolest things about Paula Morgan?  Well, she’s actually Mrs. Morgan.  As in West Parrish’s very own art teacher.  How great for your child to own a piece of their teacher’s amazing artwork.  However, even if you don’t have a child in one of Paula’s classes, you’d be lucky to have one of these pieces in your home.

Check out Paula Morgan’s work here!  Hopefully more coming soon!

Here is a screen shot of the two paintings that are available now.  Obviously check out other work while visiting the site…including GMG’s, Joey Ciaramitaro. Be sure to visit the link above to see these close up…as this photo absolutely does not do them justice.  So much vibrant color and detail!

You Know That Right Here In Magnolia Is Home To One Of The Most Innovative Companies In The Web Browser Game? Check Out What Vivaldi Can Do With The Internet of Things!

Back In June we interviewed Vivaldi founder Jon von Tetxchner On The GloucesterCast. Jon set up headquarters for his explosive, revolutionary company at the innovation House in Magnolia, just off of Lexington Ave.

Check Out His Interview Here-

Gloucestercast 188 With @KimSmithDesigns, Jon von Tetzchner, Deb and Frank Sacco, Catherine Ryan, Karen Pischke and @Joey_C

Now this-

Vivaldi introduces the world’s first web browser that controls lights. It also includes various enhancements such as drag tabs and tab stacks between windows, reader mode button, delta updates and improved note taking abilities.

Just announced-

Vivaldi releases its latest version 1.5 today accelerating its pace to create a user-centric web browser. Vivaldi gives you a unique ability – a first for browsers – to control the color of smart-home lighting through browsing. Additionally, this release offers a lot of improvements over previous versions, including being able to drag tabs, tab stacks and tab selections between windows. Significant highlights also include delta updates, reader mode button and automatic screen shots in notes. Download Vivaldi 1.5 today from vivaldi.com.

Vivaldi’s Light Bulb Moment

Vivaldi treads an adventurous route, going beyond the browser and into the smart home by integrating with Hue color lights from Philips. After enabling Hue in Vivaldi Theme Settings, a tap on the Philips Hue Bridge confirms the connection. Selecting which lights Vivaldi should control, the browser will synchronize your physical surroundings with the color of the web.

Vivaldi 1.5 - Hue Settings

With this light bulb moment, Vivaldi opens the door for new opportunities for seamless integration between the browser and physical space.

“This is just a first step for us but imagine a world where you get notified for a new email or web notification through a light bulb,” explains CEO Jon von Tetzchner. “Vivaldi is all about customisation and flexibility. Integrating with IoT devices like Philips Hue makes it possible for Vivaldi to adapt to you and your everyday life.”
