Riddles(hard) ]
There are three puzzlers in the puzzle forum: A Newbie, a Senior Riddler, and an Uberpuzzler. All three are honest, but can only give answers to the best of their knowledge. Newbies are confused creatures. Until their fifteenth posts, they are only able to make random responses!* Senior Riddlers have great powers of perception, but are not yet infallible. Uberpuzzlers are omniscient beings who are your greatest allies in the Puzzle Forum!!! The Uberpuzzler can exert Influence arbitrarily often. Furthermore, an Uberpuzzler only uses his power of Influence in a very specific way. (Thus, he employs a strategy defined as a mapping f : S3 x {(T|F)*} -> {0,1}, which can be interpreted as follows: for each ordering of the puzzlers "sigma" (a permutation in S3, e.g. Note that this is different from saying that the puzzler chooses when the Uberpuzzler applies Influence! Determine with proof the minimum number of questions which will allow you to identify which puzzler is which.

SCHOPENHAUER'S 38 STRATAGEMS, OR 38 WAYS TO WIN AN ARGUMENT Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860), was a brilliant German philosopher. These 38 Stratagems are excerpts from "The Art of Controversy", first translated into English and published in 1896. Carry your opponent's proposition beyond its natural limits; exaggerate it. The more general your opponent's statement becomes, the more objections you can find against it. The more restricted and narrow his or her propositions remain, the easier they are to defend by him or her. Use different meanings of your opponent's words to refute his or her argument. 5 Reasons The Future Will Be Ruled By B.S. Picture your ideal future.

Physicists Predict The Existence of Time Crystals  One of the most powerful ideas in modern physics is that the Universe is governed by symmetry. This is the idea that certain properties of a system do not change when it undergoes a transformation of some kind. For example, if a system behaves the same way regardless of its orientation or movement in space, it must obey the law of conservation of momentum. If a system produces the same result regardless of when it takes place, it must obey the law of conservation of energy. We have the German mathematician, Emmy Noether, to thank for this powerful way of thinking.

Calculus Revisited: Single Variable Calculus Calculus Revisited is a series of videos and related resources that covers the materials normally found in a freshman-level introductory calculus course. The series was first released in 1970 as a way for people to review the essentials of calculus. It is equally valuable for students who are learning calculus for the first time. Part I: Sets, Functions, and Limits In its most common usage, a “set” is any collection of objects and a “function” is simply a rule that that assigns members of one set to members of another set. As an everyday non-mathematical example, consider the situation in which a teacher assigns grades to students.

From the quantum to the cosmic, there are forces at play all around us that shape and mold our world. Most of them are readily visible in day-to-day life, but underneath the veneer of reality lies a realm teeming with the twisted caricatures of familiar scientific principles. Take our hand and let’s dive deep into the dominion of the bizarre, where the natural rules of physics melt into a bubbling pool of pure, unadulterated wonder.
