2023·06·10 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

Joining The Herd Of Lemmings

I’ve had cause to consider a few things. Maybe we’re going about it the wrong way, and we need to ditch Trump

Yeah, NO

Trump all the way! Why? Because being hated by the people who hate him is a sign of impeccable character, that’s why.

The haters can go fuck themselves with rusty twelve gauge bore brushes. I’d prefer ten gauge but that’s kind of scarce, so…I’m willing to compromise.

The RINO’s Dilemma

The RINOs who who have burrowed in and taken over most GOP organizations, from the state down to local organizations, have quite a dilemma on their hands, and most of them have their heads too far up their asses to realize it.

OK, I’m not talking about the liberal in a Republican area, who knows they’re in the wrong party, but is there because it’s the only game in their town; they hope to capture a nomination someday, at which point they’re guaranteed to be elected…otherwise, they never will be. These people are a hazard in any heavily conservative area.

No, I’m talking about the guys who are a little bit conservative and want to do some good by going into politics, and they’re in a closely matched area, closely enough that they can join the party they are most aligned with and still have a chance. They think the Democrats…particularly the ones who end up running for office…are nuts.

They don’t think much better of the Deplorable types, either. A bunch of bumpkins whose hearts are in the right place, mostly…OK a bit extreme. But they think Deplorables can’t understand that first you have to get elected, then work within the system to change things…a slow process. They genuinely want many of the things Deplorables want…just not as much. The government is spending too much. Or they need to spend money on highways instead of welfare for illegal immigrants. But they want to work within the system to get these things done.

Or maybe they think things are pretty close to ideal right now, and they want to nail it in place.

The problem is, that means they don’t stand for anything in particular. And it shows. They’re about as unappetizing to the electorate as a puddle of dog vomit. The folks in the middle, who they think they are appealing to because they themselves are not extreme, would honestly prefer a clear-spoken radical to someone who qualifies everything they say to the point where they sound like they don’t believe anything at all.

The problem these “Mild RINOs” have, is they just can’t see that. And the reason they just can’t see that, is their entire sense of self-worth is tied up in not seeing that. In their minds, they’ve worked tirelessly for their party, to keep those crazy Democrats out…only to have to constantly fight with a small number of crazy Republicans–who are only liabilities if they end up as candidates. They’ve fought the good fight, and if they can just find the right candidate, someone with some charisma, they might stop the crazies…without being too beholden to the OTHER crazies. In the meantime it’s not working. What’s a responsible guy in politics to do?

They simply cannot understand that the Republicans can’t succeed as the party of nothing in particular. Not really in the past, and certainly not today when people are starting to realize that no matter what they do in the voting booth, the country is still about to fly off a precipice. If they did see it, they’d suddenly have two choices: Go away and let the GOP succeed, or stay and fight. But “go away” isn’t really an option, because what’s the point of having a party now owned by the crazies, win?

Well, they have a dilemma…and WE, therefore have a problem. And we would have that problem even IF they realized that they had a problem…that they were the problem.

No one ever thinks they are the bad guy. Even Epstein probably thought he was the good guy. Right up to the moment where he didn’t kill himself.

So if you ever wonder why these unappetizing dufuses cling on even when their fingernails are being left behind…that’s why. They don’t understand no one wants them, and can’t imagine that no one should want them. And oftentimes their greatest pride is in all the hard work they’ve done for the party. They’re not going to give that up; it’d be psychological suicide.

If you’ve worked with these people, there’s a good chance you like them and consider some of them your friends. But even if so…we’re going to have to give them a good, hard shove. Because America is more important than those milquetoasts’ egos.

Justice Must Be Done

The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system.

Nothing else matters at this point. Talking about trying again in 2022 or 2024 is hopeless otherwise. Which is not to say one must never talk about this, but rather that one must account for this in ones planning; if fixing the fraud is not part of the plan, you have no plan.

OK now for the fine print.

This is the WQTH Daily Thread. You know the drill. There’s no Poltical correctness, but civility is a requirement. There are Important Guidelines,  here, with an addendum on 20191110.

We have a new board – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.

And remember Wheatie’s Rules:

(Hmm a few extras seem to have crept in.)

Spot (i.e., paper) Prices

Last week:

Gold $1,948.50
Silver $23.68
Platinum $1,015.00
Palladium $1,459.00
Rhodium $7,450.00

This week, 3PM Mountain Time, markets have closed for the weekend.

Gold $1,961.70
Silver $24.38
Platinum $1,018.00
Palladium $1,356.00
Rhodium $7,100.00

Silver up a decent amount. Gold a bit less so (and it went down a few bucks on Friday). Palladium and rhodium continue to slide which either means, someone is finally mining the stuff and meeting the demand, or…the economy is in a world of hurt. (The problem is they tend to piggyback on platinum mining, and no one is bothering with platinum because it’s been a glut on the market for years.)

Arbitrary Powers

No, this is not political, even though our would-be overlords are exercising arbitrary powers.

The last two posts on e and π have probably bent a few minds as people read them. I talked about some pretty wacky arithmetic…and it is arithmetic. Some few people here might not know what fractional and negative powers mean, or that they can even exist, so I’m going to take a break and bring ’em up to speed. Then I’ll bring in the Taylor series.

It seems like it would be a bit tricky multiplying an irrational number by itself, or even by some other irrational number. If it’s a rational number, even a repeating decimal, you can do the multiplication with fractions (where you get an exact answer), then if necessary convert to a decimal. But when the number doesn’t end as a decimal and can’t be represented as a fraction what do you do? You can just take it out to about twice as many digits as you need, do the multiplication, then throw away the digits you don’t need….only some of them at the end were wrong anyway. But that’s not really satisfying to mathematicians (engineers settle for it, because this is the real world and computers can only go so far for rendering numbers–there is a whole branch of mathematics devoted to estimating the errors in approximations).

And especially in the post on e, I talked about raising numbers to fractional powers. OK…at first blush, that is just plain screwy. e you might have a grip on. e2…well you multiply e x e. And e15…well it’s a lot of work and even the most sadistic math teacher wouldn’t expect that done longhand, but you just multiply 1.0 times e, then repeat..a total of fifteen times. But what in the heck does it mean to raise e to the 2.4th power? e2.4 is 1.0 times e…2.4 times. But multiplication is a single operation, you can’t do 4/10ths of a multiplication. It’s either done or it’s not done. And that’s not because e is irrational and transcendental, you have the same issue with 2x.

A similar question arises when someone talks about raising a number to a negative power…what does it mean to multiply 1 by xnegative three times? That one’s a bit easier, and I’ll give you a hint up front…division is the opposite of multiplication. Read on for the answer.

Yet with all these questions about what powers other than 1, 2, 3, etc. mean, you see a nice smooth graph of ex, like this one, with values drawn in between the integer powers:

You’ll note that the line goes through x=1, x=2 and so forth as if it’s meaningful to raise e to any power…fractions, compound numbers, irrational numbers, transcendental numbers, you-name-it. How do we know that line is smooth between e1 and e2, e2 and e3, and so forth, instead of jiggling all over the place in some wacky way that only just has to cross through the integer powers?

Well, it seems fairly intuitive that e2.5, whatever the heck it means, should be somewhere between e2 and e3. And that e2.25 really ought to be somewhere between e2 and e2.5. Follow that one far enough and you have a plausible argument that whatever that line should do, it should climb the whole way between e squared and e cubed, and not jiggle around. That’s not a solid proof, but a fairly strong suggestion. And of course that still leaves the possibility of the line being straight or even convex upward between the knowable, sensible points.

But we can actually go there, in a much more rigorous way–and the graph has it right. Nice smooth curve.

Consider what it means to raise some number, like, say, two, to an integer power…like, say, ten. In other words, 210. That;s simply 2·2·2·2·2·2·2·2·2·2 = 1024 (and that’s where You-Know-Who’s fraction of Indian (feather, not dot) ancestry comes from).

What happens if you multiply 24 by 23? Let’s see…that’s 2·2·2·2 multiplied by 2·2·2…which is to say, 2·2·2·2·2·2·2 or 27. And 7 happens to be 4 + 3. That’s not a coincidence. Provided you’re working from the same base, here 2 in both cases, (rather than doing 24 times 35, where they are different) you simply add the exponents. That’s a quick shortcut in algebra, where you might have to multiply x4 by x3. You just write x7. (But if you’re faced with x4 multiplied by y3, you’re stuck with x4y3.)

You can similarly divide by subtracting exponents, because dividing is the opposite of multiplying, and subtracting is the opposite of addition. So: x4/ x3 is x4-3 = x1 = x. Or written out, x·x·x·x/x·x·x. The three xs on the bottom cancel out three xs on top leaving you with x. And if the latter number is bigger than the first number, you end up with a negative power. That means more xs on the bottom, and (if you’re dealing with x3-4, you end up with x–1 = 1/x.

So a negative power is just the reciprocal of the same positive power. Thus x-3 is 1/x3, etc.

And you now know that any number raised to the zeroth power is 1. In other words, x0 = 1, no matter what x is. Don’t believe me? Do some algebra. Divide x2 by x2 to get 1, then do the same thing by subtracting the exponents.

OK, now for the next trick. There is a number–let’s call it s, which, when you square it, gives you 2. So s2 is 2. Or, s·s = 2. Or strictly speaking, s·s = 21. But we’ve already seen that you can get a number, raised to a power, by raising that number to other powers and adding the powers. So, you could figure s is two raised to some power, and multiply them together, like this 2p·2p=21. So what is p then? What is the one number, which when added to itself equals one? That’s ½.

So we have: 2½·2½=21.

Of course, s, which is equal to 2½, is simply the square root of 2. So…raising a number to the 1/2 power gives you its square root. And raising a number to its 1/3 power is the same as taking its cube root. And so on. That means to take the nth root of a number…you can divide the exponent, whatever it is, by n. The cube root of some number, x, is symbolized by first writing x as x1, so that it has an exponent…then dividing the exponent by 3.

So do you want to know what 22.4 is? Now we can figure it out. It’s 22 x 21/5 x 21/5 because 2.4 = 2+1/5+1/5. Or you can treat it as 212/5. To compute that, multiply 1 by 2…repeating 11 times for a total of 12 multiplications. Then take the fifth root.

No, I am not suggesting you do this, but at least now you can see what a calculator might be doing behind the scenes when you enter 2, then xy, then 2.4.

How about raising the power of some number, to yet another number? Like, say, raising 2 to the third power, then raising that to the fourth power? In other words, (23)4? Well, let’s see, that would be (23)·(23)·(23)·(23) which we already know you can figure out by adding 3+3+3+3 to get 212. But it’s also multiplying 3 by 4 to get 12. So when you raise a power to another power, you multiply the two exponents. (And again the base…the number you’re raising…has to match–in this case it will match.)

I said a couple of paragraphs ago that your calculator might be raising a number to a power, then taking some root of it, to compute a fractional power. But it’s probably not. Taking some weird root of a number is hard. (It’s easier using certain tricks, but still…) There is instead something called the Taylor Series. And unfortunately, deriving it requires calculus, but it can be used for any “infinitely differentiable” (i.e., “smooth-curve”) function.

You use it to approximate the value of some function that might be otherwise very hard to compute. Just run it out as far as you like; eventually you’ll see your answer isn’t changing enough to change the last digit on the calculator’s display, and you stop. (That’s called “converging on the value.”)

Here’s the full Taylor series. Don’t worry too much about it; it’s about to get much simpler.

{\displaystyle f(a)+{\frac {f'(a)}{1!}}(x-a)+{\frac {f''(a)}{2!}}(x-a)^{2}+{\frac {f'''(a)}{3!}}(x-a)^{3}+\cdots ,}

(For calculus geeks and the brave: A is some number you want to start from; most of the time that just gets set to zero and when you do that, it’s called the Maclaurin series. The fs with all the tick marks are derivatives of the function f. And the ! notation means to multiply a number by all the smaller numbers, so 6! is 6x5x4x3x2x1=720.)

As I said, you can use any smooth function here. And it just so happens that raising a positive number to the power x gives you a smooth function. So we can use the Taylor/Maclaurin series.

If that number you’re raising happens to be e then it gets very simple. The Taylor series for ex simplifies as follows if a=0…because the derivatives of ex are all themselves ex. So you’re taking ex of zero…over and over again. But that’s just one. And with a equals zero all of those (x-a)s become simply x. So you’re left with:

{\displaystyle {\begin{aligned}\sum _{n=0}^{\infty }{\frac {x^{n}}{n!}}&={\frac {x^{0}}{0!}}+{\frac {x^{1}}{1!}}+{\frac {x^{2}}{2!}}+{\frac {x^{3}}{3!}}+{\frac {x^{4}}{4!}}+{\frac {x^{5}}{5!}}+\cdots \\&=1+x+{\frac {x^{2}}{2}}+{\frac {x^{3}}{6}}+{\frac {x^{4}}{24}}+{\frac {x^{5}}{120}}+\cdots .\end{aligned}}}

(Sorry if you don’t know calculus…you can take my word for it…or dig, somewhere. If you can’t dig, ask other people who know calculus to confirm I’m not just some guy on the internet bullshitting you…rather, I’m just some guy on the internet actually giving you the straight dope. Will miracles never cease?)

Notice One Very Cool Thing: You’re computing ex without actually using the number e. And you’re doing it without having to take some weird root of the number for a fractional case. And x can be a fraction, a compound number, the square root of 2, some negative version of any of these…you name it! It’s all multiplication, division, and addition. You just have to keep going until it converges. Which, granted, might be a long time.

Yes, it’s a lot of arithmetic…but arithmetic is what calculators do.

I just set this up in a spreadsheet. Each term is simply x/n times the previous term, then you add them all up. So if I raise e1, it converges on 2.718281828 after twelve steps (and you’re just adding 1+1+1/2+1/6+1/24+1/120…). So you can compute e this way, as far out as you like. However, if I raise e10, it takes 35 steps to converge on 22,026.46579. The farther away from zero you get, the longer it will take to converge. Your calculator would probably take some shortcuts; I could guess what they are (and bore you, if I haven’t already) and probably be wrong anyway.

OK, well that’s bloody nice, you might be saying. But what if I want to raise some other number to a fractional exponent? Like, say, ten? Surely ten is a more useful base than friggin’ e is! So….just for an example, what’s 103.7?

This series can help you do that!

There is some number, call it q, that if you raise e to that power, you get 10. In other words, eq=10. Or in yet other words, q is the natural logarithm of 10, q = ln(10). (Apparently ln was chosen as the symbol for this by the French…or some other language that would want to put “natural” after “logarithm.”)

[Logarithms deserve their own post…and they’re not going to get one, at least not in this little miniseries. Suffice it to say you can figure out what two numbers multiplied together is…by adding their logarithms. Calculators probably use them a lot, too, inside and behind the scenes.]

How does that help us? Well, your original problem, “what’s 103.7?” is equivalent to “what’s (eq)3.7? But we already know that that is the same as: eq·3.7. Remember how you multiply exponents, to take the exponent of an exponent? And we know how to raise e to any power; use the series!

You just need to know what the natural log of your desired base is. And your desired base can be anything…a fraction, an irrational number…you name it, as long as you can get there by raising e to some notional power, you can use it. You just need to know what that notional power actually is.

Well, guess what, there’s a Taylor series for that too, a series for ln(x). I’m not going to hit you with that, though, because it won’t matter down the road. Suffice it to say natural logs are readily obtainable…naturally.

OK…so where are we?

We went from wondering how the heck you can raise numbers to negative and fractional values, and wondering how to raise an irrational, even transcendental, number like e to a power…to realizing that fractional and negative powers actually do mean something, and being able to raise e to any fractional or negative value without even having to use the number e to do it, using nothing but multiplication, division and addition. Pretty slick. And going from there to being able to raise any real number to any real power.

You might not be impressed but your calculator loves it.

A lot of the problem is that people are taught half of what they’ll need to know about, say, exponents…..and then are given YEARS to forget all that before they are taught anything more.

Gail Combs

Coothie, you asked about Benedryl and ponies yesterday.

First, the smell of smoke has arrived in my neck of the woods and my allergies have gone nutz … DARN IT!!!

Ponies DO get allergies, either heaves (sort of like asthma where they cough and their lungs fill up and they can die.) Also they can get hives from insect stings or they get runny eyes. I actually have one pony allergic to hay (The mold in the hay to be precise.)

So far it has ALWAYS been the ‘red heads’ who have the problems.

It used to be you could get Tri-Hist Granules## that worked for 12 hours. It is in a corn meal base and very easy to feed. Unfortunately the product contained Sudafed so it was taken off the market and now we have NOTHING to replace it. For a while my vet gave me Guaifenesin which is used to help clear mucus or phlegm from the lungs in humans. However he found it was pretty useless in ‘heavy’ horses and quit prescribing it. So that leaves OTC benedryl. I grind up 2 caplets per 100 lbs of body weight. I spread molasses on bread and then add the powder — CAREFULLY — and try to get the molasses to ‘wet out’ the powder without having the powder spill onto the bread. A real PITA!! The powder likes to sit on top of the molasses and NOT mix so it takes a while to get the powder coated.

The powder is very bitter and Hubby did not mix it well one time. I now have a pony who panics at the sight of a slice of bread. 🙄 So with him I use a LOT of molasses mixed with the powder and placed in a syringe. I layer it. pure molasses/ medicated molasses/ pure molasses so he gets the proper dose.

## I am going to have to ask the vet if I can now get it via prescription although now it has more than doubled in price.

Yesterday, the air quality index of 113 in the Raleigh-Durham area was the worst one has ever experienced. You could smell the smoke in the atmosphere even in the house with the windows closed. The atmosphere was filled with a weird-looking “haze.” They closed the golf course that backs up to one’s property for the day.
Today’s index isn’t much better.

TradeBait2

Ours has gone up higher, but is still under 50 in east TN. Got some rain coming tomorrow night and Monday that will help.

But there are times you can really smell the smoke and see the haze in areas that normally don’t have it.

Gingersmom2009

113, really? We were thanking God when it got DOWN to 113, as it had been 350+ for an extended period. You don’t even want to know how it looked and smelled. On the candy-ass east coast.

What a tiny bunch of self-absorbed jackasses this place has become – going around your cul-de-sac.

I realized I had not signed out. Done deal.

mollypitcher5

I must be sporting an iron lung or something but in my neck of the woods in Cali there were so many times it was bad smoke and ash but I never heard of many having hospital visits and major issues other than it being irritating.
Is there something in this Canadian smoke, like chemicals or something ?

I was at a Fish Club meeting, talking with one of the guys, and mentioned Candy Ass East Coast — and he said, “that’s just what my wife calls ’em.”

Gingersmom2009

Right. Almost 400 air quality for an extended period, right here in NJ, the candy-ass east coast. As I said above, we were happy when it went DOWN to 113. What a jerk.

Ozzytrumpster

Cali has a lot of eucalyptus which is used on inhalants. May counterbalance the smoke

You might not be impressed but your calculator loves it.

I am impressed, and my calculator wishes I would use this sometimes instead of just adding numbers and figuring percentages. 😀

cthulhu

Sadly, calculators seem to make people less familiar with numbers — they want to stuff ’em in a box and hit “equals” instead of thinking about what they are doing.

There’s a famous tale of a young mathematician in Elementary School. The teacher, looking to fill time, had the entire class add up the numbers from 1 to 100. This kid (IIRC, Goethe), popped up with “5,050” before the class even got rolling.

He reasoned as following — take the first number, 1, and the last number, 100 — they add to 101. Then, take the second number, 2, and the second-to-last number, 99 — and they also add to 101. If he kept doing that 50 times, he’d end up with 50 and 51 — which still add up to 101. Fifty times 101 is 5050.

If he’d taken the “easy” way and used a calculator, he’d still be punching numbers….but he lived in a pre-calculator world. He had learned to understood numbers in a different way.

TheseTruths

Interesting!

cthulhu

Then, again, I always liked the one about the student measuring the height of a building with a barometer….

“Find the Building Super. Offer to give him the barometer if he tells you the height of the building.”

cthulhu

Another method — pick a sunny day and measure their shadows….

cthulhu

Sell the barometer at a pawn shop (or to a passing stranger) and get a subway ticket. Go downtown to City Hall and ask to review the permits for the building…..

cthulhu

In case you’re wondering, the “official” answer is to use the barometer to measure air pressure at the top and bottom of the building. A pesky kid refused to give the “official” answer on a test and got an F. He was offered a “make-up” and took it, using a different method which was not “official” — so he got an F. Then he sued, and made the school system eat their stupid question — slowly, chewing it thoroughly.

cthulhu

Ah, it is said that this was raised in an academic setting — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barometer_question

Nothing like a Smart Ass Kid that is really really intelligent.

NOTE TO TEACHERS: ALWAYS check if the kid has lawyers for parents, BEFORE you pull stupid commie schiff on the kid.

TheseTruths

And accommodate the kids’ intelligence. Encourage them instead of punishing them.

Gail Combs

They used to sort kids by intelligence so the teachers could make the correct adjustments based on the kids abilities.

Then the Commies got into the act. So now they mix the kids and give Ritalin to the intelligent kids to MAKE them like the slower kids….

And NO I AM NOT KIDDING!

I can not find the article I want, No doubt it is long gone, but I did find this:

Ritalin stunts growth of children; long-term risk to children’s health unknown

…The truth is that ADHD kids aren’t diseased at all: Most schools are simply boring beyond belief, and children don’t learn well by being forced to sit still at their desks and listen to teachers ramble their way through meaningless memorization exercises dubbed “history” or “science” or whatever the topic may be. Children learn by doing things, and all that extra hyperactive energy has a useful function if it’s channeled into experiential learning exercises….

Nutritional research has shown that the symptoms of ADHD can be completely reversed in 80 percent of children in just two weeks by eliminating processed foods and chemical food additives from their diets. The so-called “disease” of ADHD is really just an expression of behavior caused by extreme dietary imbalances. The entire theory of ADHD can also be completely shot down by simply handing an ADHD child an X-Box or Wii gaming system, after which the child will sit down and engage in extremely focused, attentive and mentally demanding gaming activities for as long as six hours without a single break, and without distraction. If there really were such as disease as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, such behavior would not be possible….

This new research about Ritalin stunting the growth of children does not answer the question of whether children ever regain their normal height and body weight, or whether Ritalin causes a permanent stunting of growth that cannot be reversed. It does make us wonder, however, whether a drug that stunts physical growth might also stunt the growth of brain cells and the nervous system, leading to intellectually stunted children at the same time that it produces physically stunted children…

Get the kids OFF sugar and caffeine and ON to bikes or other good exercise! There was a reason we had a bit of ‘recess’ before classes started and again after lunch as well as Gym. Kids NEED to run around just like puppies or kittens or goat kids!

Ritalin ‘may cause damage to brains’

…..Children given Ritalin to control hyperactivity could be permanently brain damaged, it was claimed yesterday. Research suggests the controversial ‘chemical cosh’ drug raises the risk of depression and anxiety in adulthood. Ritalin alters the brain’s chemical composition so that it has a lasting effect on mental health, US scientists believe.

…The 700% increase in psychostimulant use that occurred in the 1990s justifies concern about potential overdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment of child behavior problems… from the early to mid-1990s the rate of ADHD treatment (i.e., school-administered Ritalin) among white boys in Baltimore County elementary schools was over 15%….

…As many as 20 percent of college students have used Ritalin or Adderall to study, write papers and take exams, according to recent surveys focused on individual campuses.

His doc that diagnosed ADHD when I thought he had dyslexia (he’d get the beginning & end of a word correct but just make up the middle) said if he had another year with that teacher he could be scarred for life. Fortunately she left that school & his issues eventually dissipated to some degree.

Sorry, overcome by flashbacks…..

If you’re looking for financial information about any public company, you can look for it here — https://www.sec.gov/edgar/searchedgar/companysearch

If you want to see a quarterly report, that’s a 10-Q. An annual report is a 10-K. In it, they include financial statements.

When you’re maintaining the books of a company, everything has to balance to the penny. When you’re presenting financial statements to the US markets and the SEC, you typically round to the millions or something…..

The thing is, the stuff on the page has to add up.

Let’s say you have 10.4 + 10.4 + 10.4 + 10.9 = 42.1.

Then you round it to even numbers and it says 10 + 10 + 10 + 11 = 42.

So someone, generally a junior staff member, has to manually screw around with rounding to make it 10 + 11 + 10 + 11 = 42.

You have to preserve the big number, the 42. You can’t change a number that will have to be changed back in a subsequent year — so you can’t revalue your headquarters building. You can’t change a number that shows up in a bunch of different parts of the financials. You can’t change anything that the CFO has mentioned in a conference call….but you have to bury the rounding discrepancy — and there’s no automated way of doing it (at least, back when I was involved).

Valerie Curren

There was some fictional End Times book I read way back, I think it was written by the late Christian author & financial “guru” Larry Burkett. Anyway his creative solution to funding the survivors of the Apocalypse was to somehow take the fractional pennies of bank rounding calculations & collect them in an account for use by the latter day Christians. He made is sound “legal” & plausible…if only we could get those crumbs from our “masters'” tables, hmmm 😉

I read a novel where some type of space time wormhole effect dropped a small section of modern America into the midst of the Hundred Years War (actually 30 years war), like in Germany I believe. I think it was called 1517 or some other year…oops, 1632. Very interesting to see how modern theories could be adapted to make middle ages situations & industry so much more productive. AND finding a way to meld disparate times & cultures. I got one of my history buff kids to read it too 🙂

FREEDOM AND JUSTICE — AMERICAN STYLE 1632 And in northern Germany things couldn’t get much worse. Famine. Disease. Religous war laying waste the cities. Only the aristocrats remained relatively unscathed; for the peasants, death was a mercy. 2000 Things are going OK in Grantville, West Virginia, and everybody attending the wedding of Mike Stearn’s sister (including the entire local chapter of the United Mine Workers of America, which Mike leads) is having a good time. THEN, EVERYTHING CHANGED…. When the dust settles, Mike leads a group of armed miners to find out what happened and finds the road into town is cut, as with a sword. On the other side, a scene out of Hell: a man nailed to a farmhouse door, his wife and daughter attacked by men in steel vests. Faced with this, Mike and his friends don’t have to ask who to shoot. At that moment Freedom and Justice, American style, are introduced to the middle of the Thirty Years’ War.

An abacus is an adding machine. Slide rules multiply using logarithms and force people to understand magnitudes.

Logarithms are the opposite of the exponential functions such as e^x or 10^a or 2^n. To the extent that these exponential functions also are called antilogs.

The practical utility, which was big before the days of calculators, was that in order to multiply or divide some large numbers, it was easier to take the logarithms of them, (done by looking their digits up in a table) then add or subtract these, then do the antilog (the exponent, look for the value of this in the logarithm table, using it in the opposite direction) on the sum or difference, in order to convert back to what is the product or quotient.

This will work no matter whether the base of the logarithm and the antilog is e, 10, 2, or anything else, but as most practical numbers are decimal, the base-10 logarithms were the most useful for this.

Valerie Curren

So they were a form of a shortcut mathematically speaking…as long as one had access to the table (or perhaps the slide rule?) so Not knowing How to “do” a log wasn’t necessarily the issue but being able to Use a log table (when & how) was?

Valerie Curren

That was some math genius who came up with the slide rule apparently. Thanks for this explanation, which makes a lot of sense to me 🙂

slowcreekno

We learned about the logarithms and what they were useful for, back in high school. We had a booklet, with the various tables for logarithms, sine, cosine, tangent, error-functions; as well as the factors, 2nd and 3rd powers and roots of all the integers up to 1000.

This was just before small handheld calculators with scientific functions were available and affordable. The practical uses was in physics classes where things were measured and values calculated — in the math classes the answers usually should be exact, that is, leaving square-roots and fractions as such: sqrt(2)/2 in math class, 0.7071 in physics class.

I must have hit HS just after that so I missed the pre-calculator tables as far as I can recall.

I think that I was exposed to logs in college in calculus but cannot recall now. HS was 3 years for me & one was algebra, one was geometry, & one was trig. Physics was in college for me too. HS was bio, chem, & anatomy I think.

Valerie Curren

I had a toy abacus as a kid but just liked to make noise with the pretty colored beads 🙂

cthulhu

You were halfway there.

cthulhu
Valerie Curren

That was very understandable. My toy wasn’t aligned like that so may not have actually been an abacus at all but just some beads on wires in a curving frame 🙂

There is another sort of abacus that has four beads down and one bead up — it’s like the “speedster version” but is less easy to get to know.

Websites nowadays have to take into account your browser so all the html and other scripts present the info to you the way the website designer intends. It’s purely about helping them get through the variations in how different browsers handle things. MSoft always seems to deviate from the standard because their engineers always thought they had to rewrite stuff. They wrote their own memory manager that Apple provides for the Mac OS and that’s why Msoft was always slower to release Mac updates of their software.

NOTICE THE PURPLE!!

Hilary Clinton and the PURPLE REVOLUTION

November 11, 2016 The Clintons and Soros Launch America’s Purple Revolution

Defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton is not about to «go quietly into that good night». On the morning after her surprising and unanticipated defeat at the hands of Republican Party upstart Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, entered the ball room of the art-deco New Yorker hotel icomment image midtown Manhattan and were both adorned in purple attire. The press immediately noticed the color and asked what it represented. Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic «Blue America» and Republican «Red America» into a united purple blend…

Unlike the author, I interpret that to mean the DemonRats and RINOS are UNITING to DESTROY POTUS Trump.

BEWARE: The Purple Revolution Comes To Americathemillenniumreport.com — 2016/11

Truly, it was only a matter of time before a CIA color revolution was staged right in America’s own back yard.

Soros’s “Purple Revolution” brewing for Trump presidency

As a matter of historical fact, the US Department of State in collaboration with the CIA, DIA and NSA has carried out so many color revolutions around the globe over the past century that it boggles the mind. Hence, the seeds of karma have been insidiously planted only to emerge as the tree of destiny now being experienced by every U.S. citizen.

First, Obama was permitted to execute a slow-motion tearing of the social fabric throughout the USA now known as the Obamanation. His creation of various Czars and installation of key appointees guaranteed that a Stasi state would be surreptitiously built. The resulting quasi-communist, part-fascist progressivism known as “political correctness” has taken the United States into a place not too different from the USSR. Had Hillary R. Clinton won the election, the USSA would have manifested as a full-blown socialist A M E R I K A.

The Soros-Clinton-Obama Crowd Will Not Stand Down

Everyone and their brother have always known that the Clintonistas WOULD NOT LOSE THIS ELECTION, gracefully or otherwise. That they would not tolerate a Trump victory even when he won by an electoral vote landslide. Paid fanatical anarchists and agents provocateur simply don’t have to accept the democratic result of a free and lawful election—just ask George Soros.

Here’s How Every 2024 GOP Candidate Responded To Trump’s DOJ Indictment
https://trendingpoliticsnews.com/heres-how-every-2024-gop-candidate-responded-to-trumps-doj-indictment-mstef/?utm_source=sheri&utm_medium=twitter

My summary: They clutched their pearls about the fact of it, then threw Trump under the bus.

Asa Hutchinson called for Trump to drop out of the race. 😂 Nice try, but no dice.🤣

Chris Christie said we don’t get our facts from Trump’s Truth Social account, that we have to see what the facts are, and that no one is above the law. 😡😡😡

Tim Scott made an empty promise: “As President of the United States, I would purge all of the injustices and impurities in our system so that every American can have confidence that they will be seen by the Lady of Justice with a blindfold on.” How he would do that, we don’t know, of course.

Same for DeSantis: “The DeSantis administration will bring accountability to the DOJ, excise political bias and end weaponization once and for all.” Yawn.

Vivek Ramaswamy, too: “We have to restore the rule of law in America.” Yesterday he was generous enough to say he would pardon Trump. (/sarc , but he really said it)

Nothing in the article from Nikki Haley, Larry Elder, Doug Bergum, or other no-name people who have zero chance of even making it to the debate stage (which is probably why they were left out).

cthulhu

Let’s see how many show in Miami….

TheseTruths

IMO, the most politically savvy of them all is Vivek, although I don’t trust him since his first reaction was not to state Trump’s innocence, but to say he would pardon him. (In other words, campaigning off of this.) It would not surprise me if he showed up.

The poor babies are in a tough position. If they show up, someone might think they have an ounce of support for Trump in their selfish, power-hungry psyches. And if they don’t show up, the MAGA base will chalk it up as another strike against them, never to be forgotten.

But if they do go, it will be to campaign, so I’d rather they stay away.

Gail Combs

“…the most politically savvy of them all is Vivek…”

Yes, I would agree. He, unlike the rest, knows he has to woo the diehard Trump supports and NOT antagonize them. It is a real tightrope walk. Ronda is TOO STUPID to realize that and is losing ground FAST!

Valerie Curren

no Pence posturing?

How could I have left out Pence? 😀

Former Vice President Mike Pence, on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, called on Attorney General Merrick Garland to hold a press conference and explain his reasoning for bringing charges against Trump directly to the American people.

Not a bad idea on its face, but given the players, it would just be a meaningless exercise.

Otherwise, Garland has nothing I am interested in.

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said Thursday she has introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden and other members of his administration.

On Wednesday, Greene announced during a House hearing Wednesday her intention to impeach Matthew Graves, U.S. attorney for Washington, saying he has refused to prosecute “real criminals” while targeting Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol protesters.

On Thursday morning, she targeted Biden and others over the executive branch’s failure to secure the country’s southern border.

The Georgia Republican said she intends to impeach the president and those tasked with protecting the country’s sovereignty….

TheseTruths

Then I repeat my question above, only regarding getting on with it. I saw Nancy Mace being interviewed yesterday, and Congress is investigating, to their credit. There are other 1023 forms that they are trying to get from Wray. If they have to wait on all that to actually impeach, it could take years.

Amazing rant by “Five Times August” in response to being asked why they’re afraid of gay people. 👏👏👏

Nobody is afraid of gay people. Have you considered the possibility, though, that the vast majority of America is just exhausted of an obnoxious, self absorbed, entitled, narcissistic, confused and angry rainbow cult religion being shoved down our families throats every single day? And that none of you are actually victims but extremely privileged brats? And that maybe you’ve been programmed by mainstream media to regurgitate words like “hate” or “afraid” as a knee-jerk response to anyone who’s just not putting up with your insane crap perspective on life? Because maybe we have certain values we’re trying to teach our kids without rainbow barf interfering every time we leave the house? Like the idea they’re actually perfect just as God made them the day they were born, and maybe they don’t need to cut up their body and irreversibly hurt themselves to be happy, especially before they’re old enough to drive? Or that they have more to offer the world than dressing in drag and dancing for cash tips in front of five year olds? Have you considered the world doesn’t actually revolve around you and what your pronouns are? I understand this is a hard concept to grasp because the world, quite literally right now, *is* revolving around the Pride cult in every way possible… from TV and movies, books and children’s entertainment, corporate brands and commercials, up to the highest levels of government down to the public elementary school system… but guess what? It’s all a show, buddy. It doesn’t represent reality. It’s an agenda designed to divide and conquer, confuse kids, sexualize them and separate families. It’s perverse. And if you’re going to stand there and tell me all of this is in the name of progress or that my perspective is “outdated” as your friends in the movement enjoy doing, you tell me what we’re progressing to then. Once drag queen story hours and kink parades are truly accepted by society as “kid friendly” and appropriate “family entertainment” where do you “progress” from there? When are those things going to be looked back on as “outdated” and what comes next? 🤔 I think you know. We all know. And that’s why so many are putting their foot down here. It goes no further.
