40 maps that explain the world By Max Fisher By Max Fisher August 12, 2013 Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable.

Computer display standard Computer display standards are often a combination of aspect ratio, display size, display resolution, color depth, and refresh rate. This article describes the different display standards for computer displays. History Various computer display standards or display modes have been used in the history of the personal computer. They are often a combination of aspect ratio (specified as width-to-height ratio), display resolution (specified as the width and height in pixels), color depth (measured in bits per pixel), and refresh rate (expressed in hertz). Associated with the screen resolution and refresh rate is a display adapter. Beyond display modes, the VESA industry organization has defined several standards related to power management and device identification, while ergonomics standards are set by the TCO. Standards A number of common resolutions have been used with computers descended from the original IBM PC. Display resolution prefixes Quarter (Q or q) Wide (W)

A while back I wrote an article “ How Many Social Media Channels Should Your Brand Be Using? “ Which commenced like this. “I sent an invite to a past colleague of mine to be a friend on Facebook just recently and he sent me back an interesting email, which in essence said. ” I only have time for one social media channel (it happened to be LinkedIn), so don’t be offended if I politely refuse, but if you want to communicate through LinkedIn, I am more than happy to” This was both refreshingly honest and revealing about the social media “avalanche” that invites us to participate and sweeps past us every day. So this begs the question, how many social media channels should you be using for your company? Some of the big brands engage in more than ten. Multiple channnels provides many benefits.

The nonagon (Method „A“) « Sacred geometry THE NONAGON (Method „A“)with example of trisection of angles larger than 90° Foreword to Chapter Eight Before we say anything about the nonagon, we will „single out“ one of the fundamental laws of sacred geometry that we might have noticed in our presentations up to now and which will be deepened in our forthcoming chapters. In addition to the fact that in sacred geometry all curves and straight lines are given in their full circumference, meaning in arched full circles and straight lines across all areas of the circles, and as we have said, all intersection points incurred by such inscribing are new data and as “controllers” of the accuracy of the geometric plotting and data, the fundamental law would read: The initial – central circle is the mirror of all the other radii originating outside it and within it. An example is the hexagon (scheme – pattern – validity). The basic or initial circle is a mirror of all geometrical on-going procedures within it or outside of it. with the nonagon
Bisection of Yin and Yang The flag of South Korea (and of Kingdom of Korea from 1883) contains the ancient yin-yang symbol (Taijitu in Chinese, Tomoye in Japanese and Taegeuk in Korean) that represents the struggle, merger and co-existence of two opposites (could be hot/cold, male/female, sky/earth, moon/sun, etc.) In the diagram Yin (the negative aspect) is rendered in black, with Yang (the positive aspect) rendered in white. The symbol is composed of two regions of a circle separated by two semicircles of half the radius of the big circle. Solution 1 This one requires no proof. Solution 2 Part of the Yin (black) piece below the horizontal diameter of the big circle is a semicircle with area πR²/8, where R is assumed to be the radius of the big circle, so that the small semicircle is of radius R/2. Solution 3 The dashed circle has radius R/√2. Solution 4 The reflection in the horizontal diameter of the big circle creates a second Yin-Yang pair of regions whose borderline supplies the necessary cut. Solution 5 Reference
