Creating an AVI from a series of images - Windows — Continuum Mechanics, Image analysis, Signal processing and System Identification. This tutorial will describe a method of compiling a series of images saved from CMGUI into an AVI format movie file on the Windows operating system. There are other methods, but the one described here can be achieved easily, with free software, and produces excellent and highly customizable results. An AVI file is a Windows format - however, it can be played on most computers including those running Mac OS X or Linux.

It can also be uploaded to online video sites such as YouTube. Compiling a series of images into a movie When making a movie from a sequence of images, it is important to make sure that the images you created in CMGUI are saved at a usable resolution. Creating a movie from a series of images using VirtualDub is very simple: Load VirtualDub. VirtualDub will automatically load the entire numbered sequence of images in as movie frames, in the correct order. The next step is to set up the compression and codec settings of the movie you are going to save. Figure 5: Progress window. Critical Halloween Architecture Costume Competition. On October 29, Storefront for Art and Architecture will host Critical Halloween: On Banality, An Architecture Costume Party, at 3-Legged Dog in Lower Manhattan. The competition portion will continue on DomusWeb through November 11th. At Critical Halloween, artists, architects and all creative individuals in New York are called upon to exercise their critical judgment and creative action against one of the most feared ghosts of artistic and architectural production: Banality.

Guests will sip drinks such as the Storefront Sunrise, Graham Ram, Renfro for President and the Vito Vodka Holl while enjoying architectural acoustics curated by "This is Care Of" with a special performance by the Danish group Hess is More and DJ sets by Tiffany Roth [Midnight Magic], Kap10Kurt and Popdaddy [Fagget Fairys]. Competition: On Banality Framed as an Art-Architecture Costume Party, the event is an exercise of critical debauchery.

TOO SCARED TO ATTEND? Architects Create Design-Themed Costumes for Storefront for Art & Architecture's Halloween Party | Inhabitat New York City. Stormy weather couldn’t keep guests away from dressing to the nines and traveling to the West Village where they entered a fantastical room filled with Christian Wassman air dressing balloons and Fellini’s 8 1/2 playing along the walls. Banality themed costumes ranged from the mundane like stick figures, scale models, an X-acto knife, to an architect’s evil challenges like sheet rock, critical mass, and greedy profiteers. Architizer CEO Marc Kushner attended the festivities dressed as a Photoshop lasso tool, and there were even a couple iconic King Kong and Empire State Building duos, including Bjarke Ingles as a King Kong. Though there was a live competition the night of the party, votes are still being collected for the people’s choice favorite costume online.

Prizes include a print by architectural photographer Dean Kaufman, a print by Madelon Vriesendrop, a drawing by Ryue Nishizawa, and a year long membership to Storefront. Vote for your favorite costume HERE until November 11th! Architecture Costume Parties: A Primer. Cutting out the cubes. How to weave a cube out of paper. Weave three strips of paper with the same over-and-under pattern as you would use to braid hair and you will create a cube.

The model is surprisingly solid and doesn't require any tape or glue. Materials This model works well using either card stock or normal weight paper. Steps Cut out the three strips from the pattern. Place the strips on top of each other as shown. Notes John Gorham developed the technique of weaving polyhedra to make models that are useful when studying crystallography.

Musculoskeletal System - Biology Encyclopedia - body, human, specific, membrane, water, produce, common, first. Photo by: Alila The musculoskeletal system includes bones, joints, skeletal muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Muscles generate force; tendons transfer it to bones; and the bones move if enough force is transmitted.

The force must be enough to overcome the weight of the moving body part, gravity, and other external resistance. Motion occurs at joints associated with one or both ends of the bone. The force is produced in the muscle belly, which consists of muscle tissue. Classes of levers. To other muscles, or to fascia, which are connective tissue sheets between muscles. The surfaces of the bone making up the joint have a layer of hyaline cartilage, the articular cartilage, which forms a smooth surface for easy movement.

Biomechanics applies the principles of physics to human movement. Levers are classified by first, second, and third class, depending upon the relations among the fulcrum, the effort, and the resistance. Third-class levers have the effort (the muscle) in the middle. Head and neck anatomy. Head and neck anatomy focuses on the structures of the head and neck of the human body, including the brain, bones, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, glands, nose, mouth, teeth, tongue, and throat. It is an area frequently studied in depth by surgeons, dentists, dental technicians, and speech language pathologists. Musculoskeletal system[edit] (a) cranium (8 bones: frontal, 2-parietal, occipital, 2-temporal, sphenoid, ethmoid), and (b) facial bones (14 bones: 2-zygomatic, 2-maxillary, 2-palatine, 2-nasal, 2-lacrimal, vomer, 2-inferior conchae, mandible).

As the fetus develops, the facial bones usually form into pairs, and then fuse together. As the cranium fuses, sutures are formed that resemble stitching between bone plates. In a newborn, the junction of the parietal bones with the frontal and occipital bones, form the anterior (front) and posterior (back) fontanelle, or soft spots.

The human eye is an organ that reacts to light and has several purposes. As a sense organ, the mammalian eye allows vision. Rod and cone cells in the retina allow conscious light perception and vision including color differentiation and the perception of depth. The human eye can distinguish about 10 million colors.[1] Structure[edit] Blood vessels can be seen within the sclera, as well as a strong limbal ring around the iris. The eye is not shaped like a perfect sphere, rather it is a fused two-piece unit. Size[edit] The dimensions differ among adults by only one or two millimeters; it is remarkably consistent across different ethnicities.

Components[edit] Vision[edit] Field of view[edit] Dynamic range[edit] The retina has a static contrast ratio of around 100:1 (about 6.5 f-stops). Eye movement[edit] Main article: Eye movement The light circle is where the optic nerve exits the retina Normal anatomy of the human eye and orbit, anterior view Extraocular muscles[edit] Rapid eye movement[edit] Visual perception. Visual perception is the ability to interpret the surrounding environment by processing information that is contained in visible light. The resulting perception is also known as eyesight, sight, or vision (adjectival form: visual, optical, or ocular). The various physiological components involved in vision are referred to collectively as the visual system, and are the focus of much research in psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, and molecular biology, collectively referred to as vision science. Visual system[edit] Main article: Visual system Note that up until now much of the above paragraph could apply to octopi, mollusks, worms, insects and things more primitive; anything with a more concentrated nervous system and better eyes than say a jellyfish.

The perception of objects and the totality of the visual scene is accomplished by the visual association cortex. Study[edit] Early studies[edit] Unconscious inference[edit] Inference requires prior experience of the world. See also[edit] Lens (optics) A biconvex lens. Lenses can be used to focus light. The variant spelling lense is sometimes seen. While it is listed as an alternative spelling in some dictionaries, most mainstream dictionaries do not list it as acceptable.[1][2] The oldest lens artifact is the Nimrud lens, dating back 2700 years to ancient Assyria.[3][4] David Brewster proposed that it may have been used as a magnifying glass, or as a burning-glass to start fires by concentrating sunlight.[3][5] Another early reference to magnification dates back to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs in the 8th century BC, which depict "simple glass meniscal lenses".[6][verification needed] Excavations at the Viking harbour town of Fröjel, Gotland, Sweden discovered in 1999 the rock crystal Visby lenses, produced by turning on pole lathes at Fröjel in the 11th to 12th century, with an imaging quality comparable to that of 1950s aspheric lenses.

The Viking lenses were capable of concentrating enough sunlight to ignite fires.[10] where and. Mouth. Statue at Buddha Park, near Vientiane, Laos In animal anatomy, the mouth is the opening through which many animals take in food and issue vocal sounds. It is also the cavity lying at the upper end of the alimentary canal, bounded on the outside by the lips and inside by the pharynx and containing in higher vertebrates the tongue and teeth.[1] This cavity is also known as the buccal cavity derived from the Latin bucca meaning a "cheek".[2] Some animal phyla, including vertebrates, have a complete digestive system, with a mouth at one end and an anus at the other.

Which end forms first in ontogeny is a criterion used to classify animals into protostome and deuterostome. Development[edit] Development of the mouth and anus in protostomes and deuterostomes In the first multicellular animals there was probably no mouth or gut and food particles were engulfed by the cells on the exterior surface by a process known as endocytosis.

Speech. Speech is the vocalized form of human language. It is based upon the syntactic combination of lexical and names that are drawn from very large (usually about 10,000 different words) . Each spoken word is created out of the phonetic combination of a limited set of vowel and consonant speech sound units. These vocabularies, the syntax which structures them, and their set of speech sound units differ, creating the existence of many thousands of different types of mutually unintelligible human languages. Most human speakers are able to communicate in two or more of them,[1] hence being polyglots. The vocal abilities that enable humans to produce speech also provide humans with the ability to sing. Speech is researched in terms of the speech production and speech perception of the sounds used in vocal language.

Production[edit] Perception[edit] Speech perception refers to the processes by which humans are able to interpret and understand the sounds used in language. Repetition[edit] Elocution. History[edit] In Western classical rhetoric, elocution was one of the five core disciplines of pronuntiatio, which was the art of delivering speeches. Orators were trained not only on proper diction, but on the proper use of gestures, stance, and dress. (Another area of rhetoric, elocutio, was unrelated to elocution and, instead, concerned the style of writing proper to discourse.) With the publication of these works and similar ones, elocution gained wider public interest. While training on proper speaking had been an important part of private education for many centuries, the rise in the nineteenth century of a middle class in Western countries (and the corresponding rise of public education) led to great interest in the teaching of elocution, and it became a staple of the school curriculum.

American students of elocution drew selections from what were popularly deemed "Speakers. " Sample curriculum[edit] Principles of Elocution I. II. III. IV. V. VI. New Sixth Reader. IV. On Inflection. Enunciation. Sound. A drum produces sound via a vibrating membrane. Sound is a vibration that propagates as a mechanical wave of pressure and displacement, through some medium (such as air or water). Sometimes sound refers to only those vibrations with frequencies that are within the range of hearing for humans[1] or for a particular animal. Acoustics[edit] Acoustics is the interdisciplinary science that deals with the study of all mechanical waves in gases, liquids, and solids including vibration, sound, ultrasound and infrasound. A scientist who works in the field of acoustics is an acoustician while someone working in the field of acoustical engineering may be called an acoustical engineer.[2] (Not to be confused with an audio engineer.) Physics of sound[edit] Propagation of sound[edit] The behavior of sound propagation is generally affected by three things: A relationship between density and pressure.

Spherical compression (longitudinal) waves Longitudinal and transverse waves[edit] Speed of sound[edit] U.S. Acoustics. Acoustics is the interdisciplinary science that deals with the study of all mechanical waves in gases, liquids, and solids including vibration, sound, ultrasound and infrasound. A scientist who works in the field of acoustics is an acoustician while someone working in the field of acoustics technology may be called an acoustical engineer. The application of acoustics is present in almost all aspects of modern society with the most obvious being the audio and noise control industries. The word "acoustic" is derived from the Greek word ἀκουστικός (akoustikos), meaning "of or for hearing, ready to hear"[2] and that from ἀκουστός (akoustos), "heard, audible",[3] which in turn derives from the verb ἀκούω (akouo), "I hear".[4] The Latin synonym is "sonic", after which the term sonics used to be a synonym for acoustics[5] and later a branch of acoustics.[6] Frequencies above and below the audible range are called "ultrasonic" and "infrasonic", respectively.

History of acoustics[edit] Ear. Structure Anatomy of the human ear. The length of the auditory canal is exaggerated for viewing purposes. The shape of the outer ear of mammals varies widely across species. However the inner workings of mammalian ears (including humans') are very similar. Outer ear The auricle consists of the curving outer rim (the helix), the inner curved rim (the antihelix), and opens into the ear canal, properly called the external acoustic meatus.

Two sets of muscles are associated with the outer ear; the intrinsic and extrinsic muscles. The auricle consists of a single piece of fibrocartilage with a complicated relief on the anterior, concave side and a fairly smooth configuration on the posterior, convex side. The outer ear is one of the best locations to measure body signals, which is why many in the wearable technology space are developing earbuds with biometric technology to measure critical vital signs during activity.
