Ensign Software - ESPL: Dances of the Planets
The planets in the heavens move in exquisite orbital patterns, dancing to the Music of the Cosmos. There is more mathematical and geometric harmony than we realize. The idea for this article is from a book Larry Pesavento shared with me. The book, 'A Little Book of Coincidence' by John Martineau, illustrates the orbital patterns and several of their geometrical relationships. . Take the orbits of any two planets and draw a line between the two planet positions every few days. Earth: 8 years * 365.256 days/year = 2,922.05 days Venus: 13 years * 224.701 days/year = 2,921.11 days (ie. 99.9%) Watching the Earth-Venus dance for eight years creates this beautiful five-petal flower with the Sun at the center. (5 is another Fibonacci number.) Another intriguing fact is the ratio between the Earth's outer orbit and Venus's inner orbit is given by a square. In the following dance patterns, the planet pairing is given and the number of orbits of the outer planet. Article by Howard Arrington Related:  `test 1021

Open Culture Emile Cohl e l'animazione astratta - Giannalberto Bendazzi di Alessandro Castellano Emile Cohl è noto a tutti come il papà del disegno animato. E se vi dicessi che è anche, con ben 12 anni di anticipo, il precursore del cinema d’animazione astratto? A svelare l’arcano è stato Giannalberto Bendazzi, custode dei mille segreti della storia dell’animazione, con la sua relazione “Emile Cohl, pioniere del cinema d’animazione astratto” presentata durante la 29esima conferenza annuale della Society for Animation Studies (SAS) tenutasi a Padova dal 3 al 7 luglio 2017. Ma veniamo al dunque. “Fantasmagorie”, film del 1908 di Emile Cohl, viene ricordato come il primo film a disegni animati ad avere una proiezione pubblica, e quindi indiscutibilmente opera prima del cinema a passo uno. Il cortometraggio è costruito secondo gli schemi dello spettacolo di vaudeville: una serie di scenette, situazioni, gag rese ancora più surreali dalle possibilità metamorfiche del cartoon.

"When two people start a conversation, they usually begin talking alike within a matter of seconds," says James Pennebaker, psychology professor and co-author of the study. "This also happens when people read a book or watch a movie. As soon as the credits roll, they find themselves talking like the author or the central characters." This tendency is called language style matching or LSM. "Because style matching is automatic," says Ireland, a psychology graduate student, "it serves as an unobtrusive window into people's close relationships with others." Ireland and Pennebaker tracked the language used by almost 2,000 college students as they responded to class assignments written in very different language styles.

Examples of how to Calculate Different SQL Server Dates Every now and then, you need to take the current date and calculate some other date. For instance, you might have an application that needs to determine what date is the first day of the month, or need to know the last day of the month. Now most of you probably already know how to separate the date into its piece (year, month, day, etc.) and use those pieces along with a number of functions to calculate a date that you might need. In this article, I will be showing how to use just the DATEADD and DATEDIFF function to calculate a number of different dates you might need to use in your applications. In order to understand these examples, let's first review the DATEDIFF and DATEADD functions. The DATEDIFF function calculates the amount of time between two dates, where the time part is based on an interval of time, such as hours, days, weeks, months, years, etc. First Day of Month For the first example, let me show you how to get the first day of the month from the current date. Conclusion

Eight Questions To Ask Before You Start A Business Are you thinking of starting a web business? Starting a PPC Management agency? Setting up your own site and selling things, or building a web publishing empire? Before you start, ask yourself the following eight questions. The advantage of this Q&A is that you can quickly see if the idea you’re going to throw your money and soul into is likely to work. 1 . Define what service the business provides. Try to focus. McDonalds could, no doubt, provide up-market meals, but they focus on selling quick, cheap food. That is what they do. 2. Who are your customers? Create a mental image of your typical customer. 3. What is your unique selling proposition? If your customers can buy the same services for less elsewhere, or more easily, they will. There is a tendency to model yourself on others. This is not to say doing something wildly new or different is any guarantee of success. 4. This point is so important, it really should be number one. Businesses may have great ideas. Then the bank manager calls.

The Beginning, The End, and all that In Between by sethbernard87 | LOST Theories The epic story of LOST has come to a close. For the past year, this ending was heavy on my mind, as well as the millions of other avid LOST fans around the world. And for all others, our obsession for this show seemed almost comical that we would invest such energy at attempting to dissect each weeks story line. Through polar bears, time-travel, others, other others, and bright yellow lights, the show filtered out only the truest of fans. And it was these fans who grew deeply saddened once the calender hit 2010, because we knew this was the year LOST would justify or smash our long held theories about where our characters were. However, some people, including myself, were nervous for this ending. "Everyone dies sooner or later, kiddo...some died before you, some long after." This side-ways reality was just the place in which one goes after death, before they are able to move on. And that's what's great about this ending.

12.08.2009 - Social scientists build case for 'survival of the kindest' By Yasmin Anwar, Media Relations | 08 December 2009 BERKELEY — Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, are challenging long-held beliefs that human beings are wired to be selfish. In a wide range of studies, social scientists are amassing a growing body of evidence to show we are evolving to become more compassionate and collaborative in our quest to survive and thrive. (Photo illustration by Jonathan Payne) In contrast to "every man for himself" interpretations of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, Dacher Keltner, a UC Berkeley psychologist and author of "Born to be Good: The Science of a Meaningful Life," and his fellow social scientists are building the case that humans are successful as a species precisely because of our nurturing, altruistic and compassionate traits. They call it "survival of the kindest." Empathy in our genes "The tendency to be more empathetic may be influenced by a single gene,” Rodrigues said. Cultivating the greater good
