Naomi "Sexy Cyborg" Wu is a liar and a fake. Anonymous 18/04/04(Wed)14:46 No. 16638 ID: aeab35 [Reply]

More evidence connecting Timaz to Sexy Cyborg Naomi Wu. This pair is using her "fame" to rip people off. They hide behind their army of White Knights and SJW feminists when anyone critiques her bullshit backstory and cry sexism instead of addressing the points made. Now they are trying to ruin people's careers. They are scumbags and the truth needs to be shared.

In this thread, user Timaz talks about his Up Plus 2 and Leapfrog Creatr



In this article, Wu talks about the same type of printer

Is cold air denser than hot air? Anonymous 18/02/27(Tue)19:46 No. 16630 ID: dfa669 [Reply]

Plz help

Anonymous 18/02/28(Wed)01:07 No. 16631 ID: a5c275

Yes. You would have known that by now: hot air balloons rise due to the warm air being less dense. The molecules in warm air spread out, becoming less dense, conversely, cold air molecules remain close, making it dense.


Anonymous 18/03/02(Fri)04:56 No. 16632 ID: 6914e6

volume = mass / pressure * temperature * constant

If you hold all the variables on the right side but increase the temperature, the volume also increases, and since density = mass / volume, when the volume increases, the density decreases. So an ideal gas under constant pressure becomes less dense as the temperature increases.

I'm hoping to return to college and do a second degree in math/a math related subject (ideally Computer Science). Unfortunately, I haven't done math in well over a decade, and when I did math previously it wasn't exactly the highest level math.

Can anyone recommend how I can best learn/re-learn/catch up to college level math and be ready and prepared?

If he’s catching up to college level stuff he has to do highschool math first, best starting with analytic geometry ending somewhere in calculus I or II.
Arithmatic mastery will make the difference between doing well on a timed test, and the discipline from mastering arithmatic when used to master secondary school math concepts will make the difference between getting 80s n 90s vs getting 100s.

So please explain how arithmetic helps you solve quadratic equations, or systems of linear equations.
Like, if I need to find the exact roots of f(x) = -sqrt(pi) * x^2 + e*x + 10, how does it help me to know how run a multiplication algorithm by hand?

Arduino is a great place to start! Anonymous 16/12/30(Fri)09:26 No. 16404 ID: 01d2f8

Code academy and cybrary are pretty helpful sites but I really learned a lot building and programming little projects with the arduino mega2560. Jeremy Blum has some great tutorials on you tube to get you started. Also building raspberry pi projects is a great way to get your feet wet. Best of luck to you.

Also use Udemy if you have a little bit of money their courses are very informative and useful. Also very good for Python beginner courses.

Good luck bro

So I've read the n:th alarmist article about how robots will replace some 800 M people before 2030 and so fucking on. It will be an endless summer citizen's wage afternoon until the AI exterminates us and so fucking on.

Tell you why this is not going to happen?

Easier, maybe. The wage is a strict union question. Maybe we have to re-assume a lot of things. The post-WW2 economy was founded on the assumption that there would be an constant growth. Then the financial markets got de-regulated and the financial sector grew too large. That was some 40 years ago and the unions haven't still caught up.

And another thing the unions have to catch up is the introduction of computers. I don't recall the name, but there was a french sociologist who in the 70-s warned that computerization would change the work. Back then computers was magic boxes that no one cared about.

but hes not
hes catching up to college level math
hes doing highschool analytic geometry and precalculus and basic calculus.

Hello /sci/. If there was a giant hole in the earth leading from one end to the other and- if you jumped in- would you just be pulled to the other side, or just be trapped in the middle by gravity?

>people still doesn't know how gravity doesn't work

If there was a hole like that then the planet would just merge back into a ball because o gravity. Let's say it doesn't then it means the whole planet somehow lost a lot of mass which means that the planet is going to fall to you because your gravity pulls it to you.

Difference between instruments playing the same note Anonymous 17/11/30(Thu)16:21 No. 16585 ID: 864454 [Reply]

At the same pitch? I'm trying to create a piece of music from an advert since I cannot seem to pay anyone enough to recreate it as they fear copyright backlash as a piece of production music.

The original track uses several synthetic guitars



This is my reasonable attempt :

I'm an expert at the piano but unfortunately don't really know much about guitars and that's why despite me playing the same notes at the same pitch, it sounds almost entirely different.

It's not possible to explain it in analogy to sine waves, because instruments are not sine wave generators. If instruments were capable of producing perfect sine waves at consistent phases, frequencies, and amplitudes then yes, they would all sound the same.

Comparing an electric guitar to a piano:
1. Plucking a string causes it to vibrate differently vs. striking it. For a given pitch, this generates differently shaped "main waves", which itself gives the sound different harmonics. Compare the sound of a piano to that of a harpsichord. The harpsichord has more harmonics.
2. The guitar doesn't have a resonance chamber, nor do its strings vibrate the air directly. Instead it uses electromagnets to measure the distance of a piece of metal several thousand times per second. Because the strings vibrate perpendicularly to the pickups, this adds a non-linear distortion to the wave, which adds harmonics.
3. Certain maneuvers are possible in a guitar but impossible in a piano. For example, a piano is not capable of doing a proper glissando, because it can only produce notes at discrete ranges. A guitar is also able to do tremolo, which I think it's impossible with a piano.
4. Finally, different mechanisms of producing sound cause the attack, decay, sustain, and release phases to have different lengths, which also affects the "feel" of the sound.

i think some of your later notes are off
also it will sound slightly different if it's in the context of a chord or if there are other parts playing
i think i phrased that wrong
a phrase will sound different in terms of "mood" or "tone" (not tone as in timbre, etc) if it has accompanying notes
i think i phrased that wrong again
Also yes the timbre of an instrument and the harmonics/partials will effect how it is perceived
it probably shouldn't be so different that it sounds so wrong
try a different register, play higher
check your notes again
