System - LifeSun. Life is a characteristic distinguishing objects having signaling and self-sustaining processes from those that do not, either because such functions have ceased, or because they lack such functions and are classified as inanimate.

Biology is science concerned with the study of life. Any contiguous living system is called an organism. Organisms undergo metabolism, maintain homeostasis, can grow, respond to stimuli, reproduce and, through natural selection, adapt to their environment in successive generations. More complex organisms can communicate through alternative means. A diverse array of living organisms can be found in the biosphere of Earth, and the properties common to these organisms—plants, animals, fungi, protists, archaea, and bacteria—are a carbon- and water-based cellular form with complex organization and heritable genetic information. The Earth was formed about 4.54 billion years ago. It is a challenge for scientists and philosophers to define life in unequivocal terms.

A possibly breakthrough idea is proposed. Fuzzy set calculations comprise part of the system of this paper and they are implemented by means of continuous mathematical functions, which map a variable of the fuzzy function’s x-axis into a membership value which ranges from 0 to 1.

Figure 1: The fuzzy function f(x) calculates a sigmoidal curve, with k1 being the center of the curve , and k2 the slope of the curve. [Link to open this graphic in a separate page] Figure 2: g(x) calculates the fuzzy function labelled “at_the_center”, k1 is the “center” or peak membership value of the abscissa (x-axis), k2 is the “Q” or slope of the function (“sides”).

Graphic Organizers

Introduction One way to help make a curriculum more supportive of students and teachers is to incorporate graphic organizers. Graphic organizers come in many varieties and have been widely researched for their effectiveness in improving learning outcomes for various students. The following five sections present a definition of graphic organizers, a sampling of different types and their applications, a discussion of the research evidence for their effectiveness, useful Web resources, and a list of referenced research articles. Top Definition A graphic organizer is a visual and graphic display that depicts the relationships between facts, terms, and or ideas within a learning task.

I've been thinking again about graphic notation / graphic scores, after some recent conversations with brilliant visual poet / wonceptual criter, derek beaulieu.

Notation, n. f. - C'est l'art de marquer ou simplement l'action par laquelle on marque les notes de musique sur la portée, soit en manuscrit, soit par les divers procédés connus de gravure ou d'impression.

Notation (musique).

Le terme désigne également l'ensemble des signes conventionnels par lesquels on indique les sons de la musique et leur interprétation. Les notations ont varié suivant les périodes et les genres de musique. Nombre de peuples, dotés d'un système de musique à une époque très ancienne, n'ont jamais eu l'idée même d'une notation, tels en Orient (musique syrienne, chaldéenne, arabe, etc.). Dans l'Antiquité, les Grecs inventèrent un ensemble de notations très compliqué. Alternate notation systems. Planet Haskell. Browsing deviantART.
