With all the hoopla over the U.S. election, there is one thing ya can say ...., it sure is entertaining!
Something occurred to me last night, and I think it might lie at the base of Bernie and Hillary's appeal, or disavowal, in the perception of the voters.
Hillary starts off her statements with "I" ........, I want to do this ....., I will do that!
Whenever you hear Bernie speak he always says "we" ......., we are going to do this ....., we are going to do that, etc.
This is a small, but very important difference kids, and it might have a lot to do with Sanders incredible rise in the popularity poles!
Well they found another foot on a beach on Vancouver Island. No, not something that's a foot long, but rather "A FOOT!"
No word on whether it's a left or right foot, as if that makes any difference, but officials did say that it was separated naturally from the leg, not ripped off!
That's all well and good bunky, but my question is ............, "what's with all these feet?"
Here's a headline that is causing waves [sic] in the scientific community!
After years of research physicists have finally observed direct evidence of gravity waves from this old picture of Marilyn Monroe back in the fifties!
Gravitational waves, first theorized by Albert Einstein in 1916 as part of his theory of general relativity, are extraordinarily faint ripples in space-time, the hard-to-fathom fourth dimension that combines time with the familiar up, down, left and right. When massive objects like black holes or neutron stars collide, they send gravitational waves across the universe, stretching space-time or causing it to bunch up like a fishing net.
Scientists found indirect proof of the existence of gravitational waves in the 1970s — computations that showed they ever so slightly changed the orbits of two colliding stars — and the work was honored as part of the 1993 Nobel Prize in physics. But Thursday's announcement was a direct detection of a gravitational waves, and that's considered a big difference.
NEVER MIND THE DISCOVERY OF GRAVITY WAVES FOLKS, HERE IS SOMETHING THAT WILL REALLY HELP US OUT!
Alone, it can tell you where you are to within 30 feet.
More recently a technique called Differential GPS (DGPS) improved on that resolution by adding ground-based reference stations—increasing accuracy to within 3 feet.
Now, a team from the University of California, Riverside, has developed a technique that augments the regular GPS data with on-board inertial measurements from a sensor. Actually, that’s been tried before, but in the past it’s required large computers to combine the two data streams, rendering it ineffective for use in cars or mobile devices.
Instead what the University of California team has done is create a set of new algorithms which, it claims, reduce the complexity of the calculation by several order of magnitude. In turn, that allows GPS systems in a mobile device to calculate position with an accuracy of just an inch. The research is published in IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology.
The team hopes that the new GPS units could be used where accuracy is far more important that it was in the past. Autonomous vehicles is an obvious application, where knowing exactly where the vehicle is on the road is absolutely crucial—but it could be included in your phone, too.
