Sanskrit, Tamil, Sumerian, Hangul – grammars, literacy, the Internet

Clif, I am looking at the origins of Sumeria. The language is similar to Tamil, and the roots of the early languages include Sanskrit. An Indian grammarian named Panini studied and formalized a grammar notation for Sanskrit in a way that is considered to be an early context free grammar.  The reliance on “string rewriting

Comment on a sunset image posted on Facebook – purpose, uses and sharing of live camera streams on the Internet

Peggy, I keep suggesting that you put in an all sky camera as a live feed to YouTube. I have been reviewing live videos like that on the Internet, and there are many of beaches, cities, mountains, forests, nature. I have found thousands of them and study them as a new Internet resource for education,

Who the heck sleeps with a Fan and AC on? – my comment Groups asking questions on Facebook not sharing results

⁠Donna Kutac Janak My air conditioner is really inefficient so I keep it at high temperature setting and run two fans continuously. The cost is half of running the air conditioner alone – and more comfortable. I enjoy the noise. You should be asking people why they would run their air conditioner “without” a fan!?

The Internet is a mess. It encourages duplication, falsification, and excludes more than it includes.

Hi, Ann O’Keeffe. I am titling this “The Internet is a mess. It encourages duplication, falsification, and excludes more than it includes.” In the last 30 years I must have said to myself, a few million times, “Why are there so many topics where people all over the globe work on them, but never ALL

Create arbitrary fields through simulation, measurement, and calibration.

A wave traveling between two parabolic antennas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0cZjOIfwos You might try receiver-transmitter pairs, where each inverts the signal to build a standing wave.

Comment on Viki playback speeds, image controls, and search screens

I have reviewed the use of video playback speeds in various services.  YouTube uses 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2.0 but it is not sufficient.  I have experimented with speeds from 1/100 to 100x or faster.  Rather than a fixed set of speeds, an intelligent assistant can help. For action movies, they have

Comments on PubFacts.com – is it for real? What and who is it for?

I came across PubFacts.com while searching for “parallel sequential” “fluorescence in situ hybridization”.  There is no location or identification information. No team.  It looks like someone copied material from PubMed and MedLine then put really basic queries and listings.  I wrote to ask them who they are, where they are, and what their goals might
