But, somehow they got it to work and produces the attractive curved shape shown in the middle of figure 3. Figure three also shows the origami pyramid. Over the past five years, handsets have been reduced to commodities, most often offered free, that serve only as conduits for mobile-carrier services.sci techsci tech

I must have at least a dozen more branches of suitable dimensions for some pretty cool walking sticks. It is good news—for now—that Google is pushing major newspapers to open up their vaults. Not being in an overly ambitious mood, I made a simple triangle out of a square piece of paper (Figure 1). Big whoop.

Well I have been into providing manipulative brain teaser puzzles for the kids in my math classes, so I though it would be good to add to my puzzle collection. The mobile phone industry may be in for a paradigm shift in 2008. While …

In September 2004, Microsoft released in Thailand a low-price, ‘watered down’ version of its Windows operating system, named Starter Edition. I had previously stashed away some materials with which to make one, so today is the day I begin. One that works is at Minds in Bloom That’s where I saw how to make the seven shapes.sci tech

Today I tried to paint the seven pieces of the Soma Cube. It was a tweet from Make Magazine that got me interested. The advertising revenues are shared between the content provider, on whose site the ad link appears, and Google. Baird, along with colleagues and volunteers, has been studying these animals since 1999, and every season spent in the islands has brought new knowledge of the individual species and the ecosystems they influence and inhabit.

Under the umbrella of TechBridgeWorld, two new courses – both focused on technology consulting for communities, particularly …

But, interesting enough to make me think something along these lines, done in more vibrant colors with acrylic paint, would work well for the toilet paper roll piece I had in mind (more on that later). In doing this they seek to continue to figure favorably—that is, among the top results— on result pages of search engines and hence more readers to their articles and Web site.sci tech

Plans to build a large floating experimental wind farm off the coast of Fukushima prefecture, which was hit by a nuclear disaster last year, a report said Tuesday. Its revenues for this year are expected to be $11.5 billion—up 58{b2ad4701019a2d48c4572069af24a4bdc560ed22d15daf1c3e71cbb64cb01f7f} from last year’s.

It involves lots of reading and research, but the creative part for the purposes of 30 Days of Creativity is that I wrote a blog post about it. In Sixty Days in a Library I outline my plan to become skilled in the art and science of information theory with application to problems in biology.sci tech

Today I put two more coats of red paint on the pieces. The beeswax feels good in the grip (ever so slightly sticky, but not too much) and gives the wood a subtle but pleasant luster. Dias stresses two reasons why it is important to listen to local communities and develop partnerships with non-governmental organisations.

Working on robotics at the Qatar branch of CMU, says Dias, is an attempt to rectify what she sees as a common misconception: the tendency for consultants and experts to assume that technology that works in the West will also …

The tessellation book recommends mulberry paper, which apparently is very tough and holds a crease well. Today I put on two coats of clear acrylic as a final finish (Figure 1). They came out pretty well. Which explains why it did not turn out very good. After that, smooth accurate cuts proved impossible (or at least very unlikely-see Figure 3). I have always wanted to build a foam cutter , and that is what it would take to cut a foam plastic sponge into cubes.sci tech

So when a Wikipedia entry ranks high on Google’s result pages, it is a translation of the number and weight of links that forward readers to the open-to-all encyclopedia. I’ve had the honor of talking with Dr. Baird about a paper I’m writing on cetacean tracking, and he’s done extensive work in this area.
