“A camera is basically a lightproof box with an aperture at one end and an image sensor or a piece of film at the other.” Believe it or not before you were born it took a complex series of steps to reproduce photos. There is much more to it than just clicking a button and it started all the way back in 330 BC. Reproducing photos is a process using light and chemicals made possible by the ideas of Aristotle in 330 BC, it 's evolution continued with the first photograph in 1838, and now we can use modern technology to save and reproduce photos. Aristotle may not have been the final publisher of the pinhole camera but it is noted that his references to the optic laws made it possible. Aristotle questioned why could the sun make a circular image when it shines through a square hole?
Ptolemy described about the geocentric view (“geo” referring to Earth and “centric” meaning center”) in his book Almagest. In this piece of work, Ptolemy presented many convincing evidence, including the reason behind retrograde motion, or the backward motion of a planet as observed from a particular vantage point. (Text 2 by BHP). He proposed that epicycles, or planetary orbits, was the reason for
Some of his observational claims included subjects relating to the location of elephants, the shadow of lunar eclipses, the way bodies fall, and how stars are seen from different locations. One of his assumptions related to the way earth, the element, behaves. One of Aristotle’s most convincing observations examined characteristics
The human brain contains about half as many individual cells as our galaxy has stars (Voytek). There are over 7.4 billion humans living on Earth now (“Population”). Each human brain interacts with the others in a unique way and provides unique things to its community. With their great size and great social interconnectedness, human brains have evolved two especially notable traits: the ability to reason and the ability to empathize. The power of reason is our strongest, and it is what has enabled us to dominate the Earth.
Our closest allies and most similar foreign counterparts surpass us in their updated firearm laws. Why does the U.S. continue to lack in reform and change in our 2nd amendment? Since the inception of the 2nd amendment in 1791, we have seen a massive technological advancement in firearm technology. (1) Back in those days, firearms were only capable of firing only 1-2 shots a minute, 3 if you were lucky. Today, firearms are capable of firing 100’s of rounds per minute with the option of high capacity magazines holding 200 rounds or more.
This amounts to about $55 a month. In one year, including startup and data backup, to outfit 100 officers it costs around $86,000. In conclusion, we have covered the pros, cons, and cost of body cameras for police. I believe that not all of the police officers are terrible, but I’m not saying that they’re all perfect.”Too often a story is examined through biased eyes, without a sensitivity for everyone who forged it.” - Jeffrey
Now try again with this one: MTV-CNN-ABC-FOX The material in this string could be chunked into four sets of three letters each, you would only have to remember the names of four television stations. Chunking changes the number of items you have to remember from 12 to only four. Chunking can be very helpful when you need to process complex information. It helps your brain run more efficiently. After that first sight, the data is stored in short-term memory, for an only limited period of time, 20 to 30 seconds, holding not more than seven items at the time.
Around the world today each generation advances further than the other, many generations of different people shaping the society we live in. We have mainly the Baby boomers and Millennials, who share a huge age gap within each other. The baby boomers have an age range from 50 to 70 .The Millennials are from a younger, advanced generation including that they just graduated from college with a degree. The baby boomers are way different from the millennials . The baby boomers are from a “Old – Fashioned” time where their communication were lacking different ways to communicate and most were without phones and computers , whereas the Millennials have all of the technology and various forms of communication that includes social media .
The invention of machines and deep knowledge on how to operate them was first developed in the baroque, which commenced officially in the 17th century and lasted to the early 18th century. It was during the Baroque that minds and imaginations were opened to new vast worlds of philosophy and scientific knowledge. The breathtaking artistic work and the new changed thinking served as an inspiration to the flamboyant concepts of scientific knowledge we have
The notion of modern state started emerging in the sixteenth century and with the span of time, this idea of modern state became universal through conquest and overpowering. Modern state, i.e. the enriched and the precise form of absolutist state aspires for the pursuit of central power in the state and makes its way regularized for the national system of power to get implemented. The concept of modern state has been there since the Westphalia Peace Treaty in the mC17. But even before that peace treaty, the similar form of state was there in the form of imperialism and there existed the princely states which used to be governed by the imperial authorities.
The first picture was named The Geocentric Universe of Ptolemy by Claudius Ptolemy in 100 CE. He was a astronomer who was living in Alexandria, Egypt that believed the Sun would rotate the Earth. His theory involved him with stating Geocentric which means “Earth-centered” .Later around 1500, Nicolaus Copernicus had the theory The Heliocentric Universe of Copernicus. Instead of the sun rotated the Earth it was the other way around, he called this Heliocentric which means “Sun-centered”. But this was only the beginning of science.
It was used to predict the location of the sun, moon, planets, and stars. The astrolabe was also used to find the direction of Mecca just like the compass and also the times of Salat. The astrolabe could determine the latitude on land. Muhammad Al- Fazari is credited for creating the first astrolabe in the 8th century. Another astronomer Al-Sulfi found one thousand plus uses for the astrolabe.
It was a major forerunner to the modern day camera. How does it work? The hole in the wall allows light through but flips it horizontally to be projected onto the wall or screen on the wall opposite. What is a daguerreotype? The daguerrotype was the first publicly announced process of photography.
Network Monitoring Management I definitely feel that Linux and Windows machines provide very different sets of traits that work better for different things. Linux is clearly the more easily secured server as it allows a lot more granular control of every piece of the operating system and the data that is housed there. Also, being completely open source, it allows for a lot more options for software as well as control over every aspect of the system. Windows, on the other hand, has what I feel is a lot more developed approach to managing users, groups, and machines. Active Directory is a lot more user friendly than OpenLDAP as well as a lot more “feature-rich”.
Not everybody in the NBA gets $80-100 million contracts either. The league minimum is $525,000 and a ten year vet gets nearly $1.5 million. While they are not the giant salaries that get front page press, both numbers are higher than those in the NFL. The NFL has an annual revenue stream that is greater than any other league in the world: $11.2 billion. The NBA brings in less than $5 billion.
