Over 50 Free, Must-Have Open Source Resources by Sam Dean - Nov. 20, 2009Comments (4) On a regular basis, we at OStatic round up our ongoing collections of open source resources, tutorials, reviews and project tours. These educational toolkits are a big part of the learning mission we try to preserve at the site. We regularly collect the best Firefox extensions, free online books on open source topics, free tools for developers, resources for working with and enjoying online video and audio, Linux tutorials, and much more. In this post, you'll find an updated set of more than 45 collections and resources. Hopefully, you'll find something to learn from here, and the good news is that everything found in this post is free. 1. Sure the world of digital music is loaded with copyright sharks, DRM and other undesirables, but it's also increasingly teeming with cool, free open source tools and applications. It used to be that open source video tools were scarce and often fraught with problems--but no more. 2. 3. 4. 5. Shred It! 6.

Jeff's Utilities Career self-efficacy and perceptions of parent support in adolescent career development. The authors examined the relative contributions of both proximal and distal supports to the career interests and vocational self-efficacy in a multiethnic sample (N = 139) of middle school adolescents. Consistent with Social Cognitive Career Theory, it was found that (a) vocational self-efficacy and career planning/exploration efficacy consistently predicted young adolescents' career interests across Holland (J. L. Holland, D. R. Whitney, N. The role of parents and the role of professional school counselors go hand in hand in the career development of young adolescents. The role of parental influence and support outside the school setting has also been hypothesized to have a significant, positive impact on a child's career development process. Research has demonstrated some of the positive effects of parent support on adolescent and young adult career development. Purpose of the Study Participants Measures Mapping vocational challenges. Career Planning and Exploration Efficacy Scale.

Learned Helplessness The Misconception: If you are in a bad situation, you will do whatever you can do to escape it. The Truth: If you feel like you aren’t in control of your destiny, you will give up and accept whatever situation you are in. In 1965, a scientist named Martin Seligman started shocking dogs. He was trying to expand on the research of Pavlov – the guy who could make dogs salivate when they heard a bell ring. Seligman wanted to head in the other direction, and when he rang his bell instead of providing food he zapped them with electricity. To keep them still, he restrained them in a harness during the experiment. After they were conditioned, he put these dogs in a big box with a little fence dividing it into two halves. You are just like these dogs. If, over the course of your life, you have experienced crushing defeat or pummeling abuse or loss of control, you learn over time there is no escape, and if escape is offered, you will not act – you become a nihilist who trusts futility above optimism.

Two important factors are at work here: timing and wakefulness during sleep. (The term "nap" indicates that the target sleep period is immediately preceded by a period of wakefulness; "morning" indicates the relevant time-of-day.) Discussion Holding the other parameters of this study relatively constant allowed us to assess the impact of varying lengths of wakefulness (10, 30, and 60 minutes) on lucid dreaming in a.m. naps.

The Most Powerful Voices in Open Source | : Soc The Open Source community has many influential and important people. Yet some individuals tend to hold a bigger megaphone than the rest of us. Some of these people are well recognized while others exist in open source niches. In compiling our ranking of the most powerful voices in open source, we struggled to find the appropriate metrics to measure both broadcast power and profundity. I believe we got the MPV formula right by asking the right questions. We first set out to determine reach by examining the number of followers and buzz an individual has on sites like Twitter and Google. The MPV formula illustrates how much additional broadcast power an individual has versus an average active person (defined below). On Linus Torvalds We actually debated whether to include Linus Torvalds due to his inactivity online.

Weierstrass functions Weierstrass functions are famous for being continuous everywhere, but differentiable "nowhere". Here is an example of one: It is not hard to show that this series converges for all x. In fact, it is absolutely convergent. It is also an example of a fourier series, a very important and fun type of series. It can be shown that the function is continuous everywhere, yet is differentiable at no values of x. Here's a graph of the function. You can see it's pretty bumpy. Below is an animation, zooming into the graph at x=1. Wikipedia and MathWorld both have informative entries on Weierstrass functions. back to Dr.
