Science et spiritualité - Tout est énérgie. Tout vibre. Tout communique. Tout vit. Physicien intervenu au Congrès « Science et Applications informationnelles et Quantiques » d'Agde en mai 2011, par Miriam Gablier, journaliste... MG : Qu'avez vous découvert ? NH : Tout d'abord, j'ai réalisé que les compréhensions qu'on a en physique n'ont pas de base pour expliquer la réalité. Si vous demandez d'où vient le monde, un curé va vous répondre : « C'est dieu qui l'a fait », et un physicien : « Ca vient du Big bang ». On a, à peu près le même niveau d'information. Ca ne dit rien. Et si on pose des questions fondamentales comme d'où vient la masse ? MG : C'est intéressant cette notion d'infini omniprésent. NH : Oui, ma théorie est basée sur le concept qu'on ne peut pas éliminer l'infini. MG : Il y aurait donc un montant infini d'énergie dans l'univers ?

NH : Si ce que je dis est vrai, ça veut dire que toute l'information, tous les points dans l'univers et dans le multivers sont présents dans chaque point. MG : Vous avez reçu un prix... The Reverse Cantor. Starflower Mandala Pattern. Rainbow Vermicelli Mandala Pattern. The Rainbow Vermicelli Mandala was designed for a few ladies new to the art of crochet, who wanted to join in the Mandala fun. The pattern is extremely easy!

No fancy stitchwork and lots of repeats (so it does not require too much concentration) The design is very simple too - making it perfect for almost any type or colour of yarn Row 16: Join yarn in any 4ch space, 5ch (counts ad 1sc, 4ch) in same space as join; *1sc, 4ch in next 4ch space* *to* to end, ss into 1st of start 5ch to closeRow 17: Repeat Row 16Row 18: Join yarn in any 4ch space, 3ch (counts as 1dc), 2dc in same space as join (3dc group) ; *3dc into next 4ch space (3dc group) *to* to end, ss into top of 3ch at start to close.

My mandalas did not really need "blocking", but I did give them a nice puff of steam with the iron (cotton is not quite as well behaved as the acrylics I am used to working with)! Bougainvillea Doily Pattern. This is a little adaptation of a DESIGN I did a while back - I was going to scrap the pattern altogether as it just was not working for me - but then inspiration struck. I changed a few rows, made it a bit smaller and VOILA!! Although I used DK cottons for all the doilies the different brands differ quite a bit in thickness - so adjust your hook size to suit your yarn.

********Pattern Terms: My patterns are all written in US terms I have included this little chart to make it easier for my UK readers to reference the difference in stitch terms. Link party today at The Crochet Owl. Acheter des tweets, la nouvelle stratégie des grandes marques. Acheter des tweets, la nouvelle stratégie des grandes marques. The state of the Future. I took that picture last night from the bedroom in the Fairmont Hotel here in Singapore. Part of the ever changing cityscape of Singapore. Today was the last day of the Foresight week and I didn't keep detailed notes as I was in part preparing for the final session of the day when our conference and that on complexity come together. During the day I argued for sidecasting again rather than forecasting or backcasting when the situation is highly uncertain. There was a lot more discussion today on technology and it's role.

Technology however was the dominant theme of the day. So to the final session and five us got a chance to say things and respond to questions. We need to realise the limits of models. I majored on this last point so its worth a second set of bullet points here: The need to shift from thinking about categories or individuals to working with identities. Random color generator for JavaScript - randomColor.js. Why does this ex­ist? There are lots of clever one-lin­ers for gen­er­at­ing ran­dom col­ors: '#' + Math.floor(Math.random()*16777215).toString(16); Un­for­tu­nately, this code nat­u­rally pro­duces murky greys, browns and greens. ran­dom­Color gen­er­ates at­trac­tive col­ors by de­fault. More specif­i­cally, ran­dom­Color pro­duces bright col­ors with a rea­son­ably high sat­u­ra­tion. This makes ran­dom­Color par­tic­u­larly use­ful for data vi­su­al­iza­tions and gen­er­a­tive art. Ex­am­ples Once you’ve in­cluded ran­dom­Color.js on your page, call­ing ran­dom­Color() will re­turn a ran­dom at­trac­tive color.

A typology of Foresight. I enjoy the responsibility of summary type presentations. You have to sit through a whole day of speeches that vary from the mundane to the brilliant and rapidly evolve a set of material that will allow you to go beyond a simple he said this, she said that type of approach. Now after two days of slides on methods and practice it was time to try and create some structure to allow me, and ideally the audience as well, to make some sense of what they had seen and heard.

I wanted to both show how the different approaches fitted together, but also what had been missed and more critically how we should define the boundaries of applicability for each. What I needed to do was to create a conceptual framework within which I could position all that we had talked about, and all that maybe we should have discussed. The resulting framework was very well received, and was still being recommended by luminaries such as Peter Schwartz the next day. Models Filling in the gaps.

Distance calculator. The tool is not designed for individuals to determine how much they should receive in funding; these amounts are dependent on various factors, including administrative costs incurred by participating organisations and the National Agencies.

The distance calculator is designed for organisations taking part in the Erasmus+ Programme to calculate travel distances for grant support to individuals. For grant support to travel costs in the Erasmus+ Programme, travel distances must be calculated using the distance calculator provided below. Based on the distance expressed in km, the corresponding distance band must be chosen in the application and report forms. In order to use the calculator, you should: Begin typing a location in the "From:" boxwhen provided with the list of locations, click on the correct one.

Repeat the procedure for the "To:" box. Click "Calculate" to obtain the distance, provided in kilometres. (9.38 Mb) Mouvement des officiers libres. SHA-2. SHA-2 is a set of cryptographic hash functions (SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, SHA-512/224, SHA-512/256) designed by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and published in 2001 by the NIST as a U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS). SHA stands for Secure Hash Algorithm.

SHA-2 includes a significant number of changes from its predecessor, SHA-1. SHA-2 currently consists of a set of six hash functions with digests that are 224, 256, 384 or 512 bits. SHA-256 and SHA-512 are novel hash functions computed with 32 and 64-bit words, respectively. They use different shift amounts and additive constants, but their structures are otherwise virtually identical, differing only in the number of rounds. Currently, the best public attacks break preimage resistance 52 rounds of SHA-256 or 57 rounds of SHA-512, and collision resistance for 46 rounds of SHA-256, as shown in the "Cryptanalysis and Validation" section below.[1][2] Hash standard[edit] is addition modulo 232. Cartography of the Anthropocene - Globaïa. The Anthropocene: A primer. The Anthropocene. We’re already there. This is our time, our creation, our challenge. Officially, this epoch does not exist. Yet. Unofficially however, the term is used more frequently in the scientific literature and, more recently, in publications dedicated to the general public.

So, might you ask, what is the Anthropocene? First, the etymology. The term was proposed in 2000 by Paul J. Technically, the Anthropocene is the most recent period of the Quaternary, succeding to the Holocene. The Pleistocene (2.588 Ma to 11.7 Ka) was a tumultuous era, during which more than eleven major glaciations occurred. The Holocene (11.7 ka until about 1800 AD) was a time comparatively smoother in terms of climate variability.

We are officially still in the Holocene. We collectively rolled over into a new era, which includes its stakes and challenges but also its opportunities and great qualities. Mapping the Anthropocene: first few steps. Comments? Tiny Casita.
