  • Electricity is so necessary…
  • Everyone has their dark corners.
  • Wolfram Alpha is taking a shot at a very impressive goal: to produce a free-form, accessible database of all data represented knowledge. A computer that can answer all questions (in whatever form you input) with data.
  • https://www.mathway.com/ is a very helpful math tool. It can solve all major types of problems and even provide step by step guidance.
  • A lot of the people younger than me actually use Google+ as their primary social network. I don’t see much of other social networks because my group of friends and I are habituated to Facebook.

  • Working almost a full day without electricity in the workplace was rather difficult.
  • Watching one of my fellows in a moment of distress made me aware of a different side of his personality.
  • Suggested to download the Wolfram Alpha app. Decided to Google search it and ended up on their “about” page. http://www.wolframalpha.com/about.html
  • Listed as a useful tool on a newsfeed I monitor.
  • Conversation with my students reveal that many of them and their friends have full networks on Google+. Their networks include other kids from their schools and even neighborhood friends.

  • If the electricity bill isn’t paid, the lights are abruptly cut off.
  • Pokemon has a well balanced advantage/disadvantage system.
  • Your eyes need to calibrate and adjust a bit to use anaglyphic 3D glasses. But as an inexpensive way to simulate the 3D effect, they’re pretty cool.
  • Anaglyphic 3D images are produced by taking a second photo with a slight horizontal displacement.
  • Anaglyph 3D uses red on the left eye and blue on the right eye to produce a gradient brightening effect on your eyes from left to right.
  • Average sink depth in the U.S is about 8-10 inches.
  • Raised panels on the sidewalk are usually caused by trees.
