Facebook note about models and simulations of all things

Most of my life I have been interested in solving games like chess on the computer, starting in high school (1963-1967). I took a graduate course in Artificial Intelligence as a sophomore at Case Institute of Technology (now CWRU). Then, because all my jobs drew on my background in computing and large scale problem solving,

Feedback on ScienceDirect.com pages and purposes

https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/engineering/manufacturing-tolerance Your selection of articles for “manufacturing tolerances” is not representative of the topic which has broadened and deepened since that term was created. All your pages suffer from that. My suggestion is that you survey (random samples) the whole of each topic on the Internet, in addition to indexing and processing your “own” content.

Twitter APS pay per view

The Internet, even on Twitter, is for everyone. Every person in the world should have access to global tools, data, models. Always include the open link. If APS cannot stay in business otherwise, tell me why.   Nice paper, needs shared symbolic simulator. https://arxiv.org/abs/2106.13817 Collective effects on the performance and stability of quantum heat engines

Twitter to Sony about lossless formats for global sharing of science data

@Sony Sony donated an Alpha 7S for a live webcam at Maunakea Subaru Telescope. Could Sony also help promote better Internet standards for lossless video? Look at these poor star pixels. Live stars need lossless formats. Global sharing for science data. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eH90mZnmgD4  

Posted on my Facebook about Olbers paradox and an infinite universe

You might never have heard of “Olber’s paradox”, but it is one of those perennial provacative items that gets served with most introduction to physics and astronophysics classes. For the lecturer to strut their stuff and appear learned. Olber is Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers (1758-1840) and the link is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olbers%27_paradox I like to watch the night

Comment on Why does light slow down in water

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUjt36SD3h8 You explained part of the problem, but not why it follows those paths. That takes mathematics, and you did not use any. Memorizing animations might seem a way to learn processes and use them later, but equations, measurements and precise models are better. You could have at least shown the equations, and more, provided

Comment on a product on Amazon

Digital Voice Recorder; Modea Portable Digital, USB Disk Audio Voice Recorder https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CHNBJQR I wanted a low cost way to record while the recorder is plugged in. I hate batteries, and charging and guessing when the battery will fail. So I specifically looked for one that said “will record while charging”. Someone complained bitterly there are

Comment on Electret Mic: How it Works and How to Connect it to a Computer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqLhvg0I2BU Your microphone link says that particular model is “discontinued”. I use Amazon for convenience and there are several electret microphone items worth seeing at https://www.amazon.com/electret-microphone/s?k=electret+microphone They have the electret microphone elements, but there are also some “electret microphone amplifier” breakout boards that are inexpensive and might work. I ordered some, but have not tried

Models at CCMC, Vitmo ModelWeb Browser Results, Fundamental constants and equations used
