Day of April 15th 2014

  • Expectations of an individual’s behavior should vary by setting and state of mind.
  • Vacation rental homes in upstate New York and New Jersey are relatively cheap when split by a group, and are a great way to get away and enjoy a few days with friends.
  • Sibilant: a sound in speech which produces a hissing sound. (“sss” or “shhh“)
  • When shipping out large packages with heavy or fragile materials, the contents should be situated at the center, and the container should be packed with filler to the point where the contents do not shift when rattled.
  • Cigarettes never tasted good, the attraction and acquired taste were both totally based around how I felt about cigarettes at the time.

Sources:

  • While hanging out with one of my newer friends, I was surprised by his behavior and attitude. Upon reflection I realized that there was a drastic change in the usual environment and (his) state of mind.
  • A newer friend of mine has extensive experience with renting and organizing group trips.
  • The word “sibilant” came up while I was reading a review of the Bose AE2 headphones on Trusted Reviews.

  • I decided to ship my PS3 out for trade-in credit with Amazon. While packaging the product, my father helped me buffer the package and taught me how to make sure the contents don’t bounce around.
  • I’ve more or less abandoned my cigarette addiction. My transition to an electronic cigarette, plus reasonable health concerns, has completely warped my association to traditional cigarettes.

  • 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.

Sources:

  • 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.
