Spirograph The name has been a registered trademark of Hasbro Inc. since 1998 following purchase of the company that had acquired the Denys Fisher company. The Spirograph brand was relaunched with original product configurations in the USA in 2013 by Kahootz Toys and in Europe by Goldfish and Bison. History[edit] The mathematician Bruno Abakanowicz invented the Spirograph between 1881 and 1900. It was used for calculating an area delimited by curves.[1] Drawing toys based on gears have been around since at least 1908, when The Marvelous Wondergraph was advertised in the Sears catalog.[2][3] An article describing how to make a Wondergraph drawing machine appeared in the Boys Mechanic publication in 1913.[4] The Spirograph itself was developed by the British engineer Denys Fisher, who exhibited at the 1965 Nuremberg International Toy Fair. Operation[edit] Animation of a Spirograph Several Spirograph designs drawn with a Spirograph set Mathematical basis[edit] Consider a fixed outer circle of radius from on

Littlepixel internets™ Legendary Animator Chuck Jones Creates an Oscar-Winning Animation About the Virtues of Universal Health Care (1949) While our country looks like it might be coming apart at the seams, it’s good to revisit, every once in a while, moments when it did work. And that’s not so that we can feel nostalgic about a lost time, but so that we can remind ourselves how, given the right conditions, things could work well once again. One example from history (and recently rediscovered by a number of blogs during the AHCA debacle in Congress) is this government propaganda film from 1949—the Harry S. Directed by Chuck Jones, better known for animating Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, and the Road Runner, "So Much for So Little" follows our main character from infancy—where doctors help immunize babies against whooping cough, diphtheria, rheumatic fever, and smallpox—through school to dating, marriage, becoming parents, and settling into a nice, healthy retirement. The film won an Academy Award in 1950 for Documentary Short Subject—not best sci-fi, despite how radical this all sounds. So what happened?

MyMiniFactory - Guaranteed 3D Printable Designs Elegant gifs for a more civilized age. Saikutatko? Työnantaja voi puuttua poissaoloihin: palkka pois, korvaavaa työtä ja keskustelu | Yle Uutiset | Sairauslomalapun hakija saattaa yllättyä kovasti, kun työnantaja sanookin, että työntekijä voikin tehdä vaikkapa paperitöitä kun asiakaspalvelu ei sujukaan esimerkiksi äänen menetyksen vuoksi. Varatuomari Kaija Kess toteaa suoraan, että lääkärin kirjoittama sairauslomatodistus on vain lääkärin antama lausunto potilaan työkyvystä tai työkyvyttömyydestä. – Tämä tarkoittaa sitä, että lääkäri ei päätä sairauslomasta, eikä varsinkaan sen palkallisuudesta. Töissä pitää olla kivaa.Riitta Uhrman Terveystalon työterveyden ylilääkäri Minna Pihlajamäki vahvistaa asian. – Se on vain suositus poissaoloon. Työntekijä voi potilassalaisuuteen vedoten piilottaa sairauden tunnistetiedot työnantajalta, mutta työnantajalla on palkanmaksua varten oikeus pyytää lisäselvityksiä. Lääkärin suositus poissaolosta ei velvoita työntekijääkään. – Potilaallakaan ei ole mitään velvollisuutta noudattaa sitä, mutta hyvässä hoitosuhteessa näistä asioista keskustellaan niin, että myös potilas sitoutuu hoitoon.
