Qigong. Qigong, qi gong, chi kung, or chi gung (simplified Chinese: 气功; traditional Chinese: 氣功; pinyin: qìgōng; Wade–Giles: chi gong; literally: "Life Energy Cultivation") is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for health, spirituality, and martial arts training.


With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi) or what has been translated as "life energy".[1] According to Daoist, Buddhist, and Confucian philosophy, respectively, qigong allows access to higher realms of awareness, awakens one's "true nature", and helps develop human potential.[2] Mnemonic. Knuckle mnemonic for the number of days in each month of the Gregorian Calendar.


Each protruding knuckle represents a 31-day month. A mnemonic (RpE: /nəˈmɒnɨk/,[1] AmE: /nɛˈmɑːnɪk/ the first "m" is silent), or mnemonic device, is any learning technique that aids information retention. Mnemonics aim to translate information into a form that the brain can retain better than its original form. Even the process of merely learning this conversion might already aid in the transfer of information to long-term memory.

Transforming Suffering and Happiness

Statement of Intent I am going to put down here a partial instruction on how to use both happiness and suffering as the path to enlightenment. There are two parts: 1) how to use suffering as the path, 2) and how to use happiness as the path. Each one is approached firstly through relative truth, and then through absolute truth.

Numerical analysis

The approximation of the square root of 2 is four sexagesimal figures, which is about six decimal figures. 1 + 24/60 + 51/602 + 10/603 = 1.41421296...[1] Numerical analysis is the study of algorithms that use numerical approximation (as opposed to general symbolic manipulations) for the problems of mathematical analysis (as distinguished from discrete mathematics). One of the earliest mathematical writings is a Babylonian tablet from the Yale Babylonian Collection (YBC 7289), which gives a sexagesimal numerical approximation of , the length of the diagonal in a unit square. Fast Fourier transform. Frequency and time domain for the same signal A fast Fourier transform (FFT) is an algorithm to compute the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) and its inverse.

Fast Fourier transform

A Fourier transform converts time (or space) to frequency and vice versa; an FFT rapidly computes such transformations by factorizing the DFT matrix into a product of sparse (mostly zero) factors.[1] As a result, fast Fourier transforms are widely used for many applications in engineering, science, and mathematics. The basic ideas were popularized in 1965, but some FFTs had been previously known as early as 1805. The Electric Shock Questions. Effects and Symptoms Evan Mayerhoff High Voltage Connection, Inc.

The Electric Shock Questions

Questions that cross everyone’s mind who has worked on electronics are: what does it take to feel a shock, and at what level can you get into serious trouble. The simple answer is that low levels of electricity have the possibility to cause injury, either directly or indirectly. There is some data that indicates that under certain extreme conditions the maximum reasonable safe voltage is only 10V ac. Included in this article are physiological effects of varying magnitude of current, and a listing of symptoms. While previous articles in these newsletters have dealt with defining high voltage, a glossary of related terms, and spacing considerations, it is safety that we think about all the time. Physiological Effects The following, table 1, is adapted from a table that appears on the Georgia State University website, among other sites. Category:Mandarin idioms.
