The teahouse is one of the many Taoist temples to be found on each of the five peaks that make up Mt. Huashan. As the original inhabitants practiced asceticism, and didn't make a habit of traveling, they daily meditation was heavily accented by drinking tea. For this reason, over the years, this temple has turned into a teahouse. When seen on a map, the mountain range forms a sort of flower shape. The temple was built here because each of the five peaks needed to be populated in order to complete the flower.
For the last several years, X.Org was a participating mentoring organization in Google's most excellent Summer of Code (GSoC) program. This program provides approximately US$5000 to students to spend their summer developing code for an open source project. Each student proposes a project and is matched with an organization mentor who guides and evaluates the work. GSoC was great for X.Org; we saw more than a dozen students through it, and some of these students went on to be extremely active contributors to X.Org. However, for whatever reason some students with good project proposals who would like to participate in GSoC have been unable to do so. Typically, this was because Google funded fewer high-quality GSoC proposals than we had available in a given year, or because the rigid timing of GSoC was entirely incompatible with a student's calendar.
Functions versus Scripts Anatomy of a MATLAB function Creating function m-files with a plain text editor Function Defintion Input and Output parameters Comment statements Some simple examples Calling MATLAB Functions Local Variables Flow Control if constructs Logical comparisons while constructs for constructs Functions versus Scripts See Scripts versus Functions . Anatomy of a MATLAB function MATLAB functions are similar to C functions or Fortran subroutines. MATLAB programs are stored as plain text in files having names that end with the extension ``.m''.
April 23, 2011 04:14pm EST Remember watching those time-lapse videos of growing plants in science class? They look pretty dated once you've checked out the same sequence through Google's new "GigaPan Time Machine" application, which lets you zoom in and out of a time-lapse video without losing resolution. "With Time Machine, the cameras capture these image mosaics at regular intervals to create a video with hundreds of millions or even billions of pixels in each frame. The result is a video that viewers have the ability to zoom in on while it's playing and see incredible detail," Google wrote in a blog post (see video demo below).
My share in the forum. mbed + android home control system. This was supposed to be my submission for the recently held contest but I wasn't able to finish the wireless part of the project. Anyway, the idea is having an Android based application capable of controlling parts of your house (lights, AC, locks, fridge temperature, garage doors, etc).

By Rajeev Mantri Shortly after Singapore became an independent nation in 1965, its founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew is said to have remarked that he wanted his city-state to be like Calcutta. Bereft of any mineral wealth and in a hostile neighborhood, few would have given Singapore, a then-poor island nation covering an area of less than 1,000 square kilometers, any chance of surviving, let alone thriving. But today, Singapore frequently ranks among the top echelons of economic and human development indices.
As a software engineer, programming is not the only skill you need to develop.
When MATLAB 5 was released, some users noticed that the default image had changed. image colormap(gray(32)) axis ij A few users also noticed that the pixel values in the new default image were not integers. h = findobj(gcf, 'type' , 'image' ); cdata = get(h, 'CData' ); cdata(1:3,1:3) ans = 11.2307 12.4251 10.4251 14.4251 15.7483 13.7483 12.3938 13.7483 12.7483 Is there something interesting about the fractional part?
