64 Things Every Geek Should Know - The term ‘geek’, once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness. As time has gone on, the word has yet again morphed to indicate a new type of individual: someone who is obsessive over one (or more) particular subjects, whether it be science, photography, electronics, computers, media, or any other field. A geek is one who isn’t satisfied knowing only the surface facts, but instead has a visceral desire to learn everything possible about a particular subject. A techie geek is usually one who knows a little about everything, and is thus the person family and friends turn to whenever they have a question. 1.

Saccade Trace of saccades of the human eye on a face while scanning Function[edit] Humans and many animals do not look at a scene in fixed steadiness (as opposed to most birds, for example[citation needed]); instead, the eyes move around, locating interesting parts of the scene and building up a mental, three-dimensional 'map' corresponding to the scene (as opposed to the graphical map of avians, that often relies upon detection of angular movement on the retina). When scanning the scene in front of you or reading these words right now, your eyes make jerky saccadic movements and stop several times, moving very quickly between each stop. Control[edit] Once saccades are underway, they cannot be altered at will. Timing and kinematics[edit] Saccades are the fastest movements produced by the human body. The amplitude of a saccade is the angular distance the eye travels during the movement. Types[edit] Saccades can be categorized by intended goal in four ways:[10] Pathophysiologic saccades[edit]

Ruby on Rails Guides 7 Unique Ways To Practice Your Coding Skills I am 24 years old and just started learning coding. I want to be a programmer. Am I too late in the game? One of the upvoted answers to this on came from graphic artist Michel Poisson. I’m 63, and eight months ago I decided to teach myself Blender 3D. The 40 years between the respondent and the doubter is the chink in our thought process that says it’s a young man’s game. If you have picked up a programming language to learn, let’s start the class with some innovative websites. Dash – Learn With Projects Learn: HTML, CSS, JavaScript Dash is similar to Codecademy with its immersive project-based approach, and the tutorials walk you through five projects of increasing difficulty. Dash is designed for incremental learning – you cannot go to the next skill unless you unlock the previous one. The Code Player – Learn From Screencasts Learn: HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript. Learning with screencasts from coders is another interesting take on how to build something with code. Learn: Python

Топики / Избранное / Хабрацентр им. marchevsky Недавно я прочитал о том, что Гэйб Ньюэлл всерьёз настроен на то, чтобы перенести хорошие и качественные игры в Linux. Как он считает, это именно то, чего не хватает, и что на данный момент ограничивает развитие платформы. Безусловно, он прав. Тем не менее, лично для меня есть и другая область, которая мне даже намного важнее, чем игры — это музыка. На картинке ­— рабочее место Niels Ott, на компьютере запущен Ardour. Моя жена тоже музыкант, и когда она увидела, какие секвенсоры и синтезаторы есть в Linux — она даже не стала пытаться в них разобраться, просто вернувшись к своим Cubase и Reason. Я же, пользуясь Linux уже около 10 лет, не могу так просто отказаться от того, чтобы хотя бы пробовать имеющиеся программы.

Shepherd's Pie (Cottage Pie) When the English, who seem to have a national fascination with minced meat pies, combined mashed potatoes with minced meat, a truly remarkable dish was born. For over two hundred years, Shepherd's Pie has been made by cooking chopped up lamb or mutton mixed with gravy, topped with mashed potatoes, and baked until a crispy crust forms. When made with beef, this dish is traditionally called Cottage Pie. This recipe, handed down to me by a friend in the form of index cards, was originally from the beloved Joy of Cooking. Start by chopping up 1-1/2 lb. potatoes into rough 1-inch cubes for boiling. While, cooking the potatoes, prepare the vegetables. Dice the carrot, celery, and onion and place in a bowl. When the potatoes are tender, remove them from the water into a large bowl, reserving 1/2 cup of the water. After the potatoes have been mashed, set them aside. Add the diced onion, carrot, and celery and stir until the vegetables are coated. Add 1 Tbs. flour to the mixture. Shepherd's pie Введение PowerShell и администрирование будущего Долгое время визитной карточкой Windows служил графический интерфейс, а желающим поработать в консоли приходилось довольствоваться весьма урезанным функционально cmd.exe. Появление PowerShell с гибким языком сценариев изменило ситуацию к лучшему. Используя его возможности, можно легко выполнить практически любую задачу, возникающую перед администратором. Зачем админу PowerShell? Если настройку при помощи графических утилит можно назвать наглядной, то консоль вырывается вперед, когда говорят об автоматизации задач и обработке большого количества данных. Ранее админу, чтобы упростить себе работу, необходимо было использовать командные BAT-файлы, VBScript, JavaScript, Windows Script Host, Perl и прочие инструменты, позволяющие управлять системной информацией. Сейчас PowerShell встроен в Win2k8/R2/Se7en и доступен как опциональный компонент для WinXPSP2/2k3/Vista. Начинаем исследование PS> Get-Process | Sort CPU -Descending | Select -First 10 Все просто!

Spacing effect Researchers have offered several possible explanations of the spacing effect, and much research has been conducted that supports its impact on recall. In spite of these findings, the robustness of this phenomenon and its resistance to experimental manipulation have made empirical testing of its parameters difficult. Causes for spacing effect[edit] Decades of research on memory and recall have produced many different theories and findings on the spacing effect. In a study conducted by Cepeda et al. (2006) participants who used spaced practice on memory tasks outperformed those using massed practice in 259 out of 271 cases. As different studies support different aspects of this effect, some now believe that an appropriate account should be multifactorial, and at present, different mechanisms are invoked to account for the spacing effect in free recall and in explicit cued-memory tasks. Not much attention has been given to the study of the spacing effect in long-term retention tests.

VARK: A REVIEW OF THOSE WHO ARE MULTIMODAL Recently my views about those who are multimodal have been extended. Here is my current thinking. Multimodal preferences dominate the database for all populations and it is clearly the most used set of preferences when making decisions about learning. Usually one third of respondents are in the four-part VARK set and another large group are in the groups who have three or two preferred modalities. This dominance can seem disappointing as some people feel that their special characteristics have been lumped into a largely undistinguished category and inappropriately recognized. It also means that teachers, trainers and coaches may be at odds as to how they might help people those people. Context Specific Approach Those who have a multimodal approach to learning and decision-making are now seen in two groups with an indistinct boundary or transition between them. Whole-Sense Approach Some, may criticize them for taking a long time to make a decision. Sequencing

Все по полочкам Немалая часть задач, связанных с обслуживанием локальных вычислительных сетей, представляет собой выполнение рутинных операций, ручная реализация которых может потребовать значительного времени. Вероятно, решения, позволяющие автоматизировать выполнение административных задач, которые могли бы повысить производительность, возникли почти сразу же с появлением профессии системного администратора. Наиболее распространенным средством «экономии времени и избавления от головной боли» стала запись и последовательное пакетное исполнение необходимых операций - исполнение сценариев или скриптов в интерпретаторе команд операционной системы. Попытки улучшить состояние дел в области управления и администрирования Windows с помощью командного интерфейса привели не к адаптации чужеродного для системы языка сценариев или созданию супер-утилиты, работающей в DOS, а к появлению PowerShell – новой командной оболочки. Знакомство В состав PowerShell включена довольно обширная справочная система. Параметры
