Ex-Hindus: Why Did You Convert From Hinduism Or Became an Atheist?

I asked myself looking at the question, did I really convert?You see, everyone is a born atheist till whatever inherent mumbo jumbo the culture they are born in gets introduced to them, this could be believing that looking atmirror at night is bad or believing different versions of god and religion.I have always needed valid reasons for accepting things even as a kid, don't ever remember when I didn't so it still baffles me to this age how people are okay with accepting things withoutevidence. The brief period I could be called a hindu/believer was during early age as well when I had the notion of "adults are smarter so must be knowing more than me to be able to acceptthings that didn't make sense". This notion kept dissolving slowly as I started growing up and saw adults don't have much idea as well. This notion was completely gone by the age of 12.As I grew older I read scriptures of other religions (quran/bible)and could see it was same old wine in different bottles, same mumbo jumbo. So this can be called the point where I converted back to agnostic-atheism.That being said, many might point out, you can be a hindu atheist and can see hinduism is a way of living. To answer this, I have an example to share.

I might come to know as my first introduction tofire that it is hot and I pass on the information to others and ask not to touch it and rules similar to these can accumulate over time and can become "way of life" it can keep getting viral.People will not know "why" not to touch it but majority is somehow okay with it because it is going on for years.The problem with this approach is, some of these rules might be correct but some of these passed on information can be made up of half information (example a rulethat is only aplicable in hot climate but not in cold but as followers, people are blindly doinng it all over the year) or even complete bulshit.

My point being, this approach might be considered okay at ancient times when we didn't know much of the science about how world around us works but today it's diferent or at least it should be different.Even if the passed on information is correct, it's very important to know the "why".I don't need a "way of life" determining things for me, if I see "way" which has evidence based backing and "scientific" theories that has been peer reviewed and replicated successfully in differentconditions, I might accept it. For simpler things I am well capable of determining for myself using the same tool (crtitical thinking) and know what to accept and what not to accept.Critical thinking develops out of both curiosity and education. Education is really important to develop critical thinking and when you add the juice of curiosity with it, you end up creating an atheist.

Is BJP really good for the nation (India)?

Ah, a good question that has a very obvious answer. Allow me to begin by bringing to your attention words said by some very honorable people of the party in said contextBJPs take on evolution(sad homosapien noises)Since the man is seen on Earth he has always been a man, nobody, including our ancestors, in written or oral, have said they saw an ape turning into a man. No books we have read or the tales told to us by our grandparents had such a mention

- BJP MP Satyapal SinghThis man is not only discrediting the most authentic theory on evolution but also expressed his intent to call for scrapping of Evolution chapter from school textbooks. 2. Sir Biplabs theory of availability of internet during the events of Mahabharata"India has been using internet since ages. In Mahabharata, Sanjay was blind but he narrated what was happening in the battlefield to Dhritarashtra anyway. This was due to internet and technology. Satellite also existed during that period."

-Tripura CM Biplab Deb3. Real Doctor Sambit Patra showing off his exclusive knowledge on decomposable organic matter (read: cow dung)(talk about setting the bar low, that too on national television)

Cow dung is more precious than Kohinoor diamond

-Shhh Not A Doctor ( BJP Spokesperson Sambit Patra)4.Not so guilty MP Sadhvi Pragya Thakurs miraculous recoveryI was a patient of cancer, and I cured myself by consuming cow urine coupled with ayurvedic herbs"

(What she didnt mention though, was that she also underwent surgical procedures to get rid of cancer)5. Minister of Human Resourc Educations logical reasoningNEET & JEE to be held next month, 80% Students have downloaded the Admit Cards for JEE, they want the exams to happen-Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal(Wait! going by that logic - ah never mind)6. Cannot leave out our very beloved Prime Minister from this list!We all read about Karna in the Mahabharata. If we think a little more, we realise that the Mahabharata says Karna was not born from his mothers womb. This means that genetic science was present at that time. That is why Karna could be born outside his mothers womb.We worship Lord Ganesha. There must have been some plastic surgeon at that time who got an elephants head on the body of a human being and began the practice of plastic surgery

-Prime Minister Narendra ModiComing to the question, Is BJP good for the nation?

No, this is a party whose own leadership gives power to politicians who make laughable statements and whose propaganda thrives on spreading misinformation and hate among the less educated. They know that their Hindu-Muslim strategy will get sabotaged by making important issues like education, employment, poverty their primary objective. Even after 6 years of governance, all they have managed to do is scare independent journalists and establish themselves as a brand of hollow nationalism and whitewash young minds into questioning the now weakened opposition, as if that would bring employment.I know my opinion may not go well with the Namo Brigade, youre all invited to make your pappu jokes in the comment section.Image sources: Google.com

What darts practice routine led you to a breakthrough?

It depends how far along in your development you are and what kind of breakthrough youu2019re hoping for.For me, the huge early breakthrough was throwing fat 20u2019s, and I mean fat, donu2019t throw at the trips. Each session, Iu2019d challenge myself as to how many I could hit in a row without missing. Next session I had to beat it by one. Up to you if you want the doubles and triples to qualify ( I counted them generally, but only as one.) You really want to be shooting for the fattest part of the 20, where your chances of success are greatest.Why is this effective? To excel at darts, you must develop a very consistent throwing motion/mechanic and thereu2019s no better way to do that than repetition. Not only is the 20 the most important scoring wedge on the board, so something you want to be good at anyway, but it is also the highest position and aligned vertically so it will really help you get your stroke sorted out.With some self-awareness and patience, your body will start to teach itself the best stance, grip, release point, pace of throw. Etc. Once those mechanics are in place and you can reliably throw 20u2019s with confidence and little effort, youu2019ll have a strong foundation for moving to other areas of the board, repeating the same mechanics.

Some of my personal takeaways were, in order of importance:Solid foundation - Donu2019t move! I mean it. If you are lunging, falling forward, whatever, youu2019ve missed before youu2019ve thrown. When you can keep your body still even while throwing, you will feel a great deal more control and progress MUCH more rapidly. By example/extreme, imagine trying to be accurate standing on a surfboard in water. Darts is a game of millimeter precision - lock down your foundation.Over the elbow - try to recreate a pendulum of your forearm dropping back over your elbow You want this verticle plane created by throwing over your elbow. You may need to adjust your grip/release to facilitate this. This is part and parcel of the 20u2019s routine above, curing your left/right errors, limiting your error to up/down depending on how hard you throw and release point.Visualize the arc - Visualize a gentle arc trajectory where the dart peaks an inch or two before reaching the board. This keeps you from throwing too hard, helps your concentration/focus, and the darts will stick better and bounce less when falling into the board at this slight angle. Proper darts requires very little effort. When I am playing my best I feel I am almost laying the darts upon my targets, letting them fall into place. It is remarkable how much control you can achieve when you are finessing the darts instead of forcing them in.My practice routines often include many things (doubles, around the board, simulated games, etc.) but always starts and finishes with that string of throwing 20u2019s without a miss to get/keep the stroke dialed in.

Best of luck!.

Knowledge About Grandfather Clocks,Production of Grandfather Clocks
Production of grandfather clocksThe plot is a remake of one the greatest television hits of Benedito Ruy Barbosa, the novel Sinh Moa, which was shown in 1986. The author received endorsement to make a new version of the novel in 2005 after the great success of Cabocla, shown in 2004.The novel was recorded with an image, which looked like cinema or high definition TV, was edited with computer graphics in post-production, to gain a cinematic effect. Also it was the first Globo's that used the equipment of High Definition Edition, software able to leave the images closer to those of cinema. This fact, in the beginning caused a certain strangeness on the viewers. Also was used base light, a Dutch software, that gave to the novel ares of miniseries.The recordings of the novel began in 2006 of January, in the cities of Trs Rios, in Campinas and Bananal, in the inner of So Paulo. In addition to the colonial farms in So Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, a scenic city with 8,868m2 was also made at the Projac - Globo's main Base, in Jacarepagu.Carolina Dieckmann was announced as the protagonist of the novel, Sinh Moa. However the direction of Globo moved the actress to the novel Cobras & Lagartos and decided to keep Dbora Falabella as the main character.The inverse happened with Bruno Gagliasso. At first he had been chosen to live the protagonist of Cobras & Lagartos, but the author Benedito Ruy Barbosa made a point of the presence of Bruno in his novel. For that reason the actor was redirected to the novel of the 6 pm.The actress Juliana Baroni played until the end of the role as Ana of The Veil. However the character was with the debutant Isis Valverde. The direction of the novel preferred an unknown name, to create mystery, since the face of the character would only be revealed with the unfolding of the estory. The actress was also banned from appearing in public, as that would end the mystery of the novel. The director kept hidden the face of Isis Valverde, so that it was revealed only during the novel, when his character would take out the veil that covered her face. This would make the curiosity of the "gossip magazines" and viewers. The character took off the veil and the face of the actress was finally known in the chapter aired on April 18, 2006.Guilherme Berenguer entered the plot to cause some twists. He played Eduardo, an engineer who is enchanted by Ana do Vu (Isis Valverde). Later, she would fall in love with the boy. The first appearance of the actor in the plot was on the Chapter 129, which aired on August 9, 2006.The telenovela was criticized by scholars and representatives of the black movement in Brazil. According to them, the plot tackled racism abruptly and through scenes of violence and ill-treatment against blacks, it conveyed "an idea of racial inferiority".------Political career of grandfather clocksTelerman's political career started at an early age. He was a student delegate in the secondary school, and a member of the Young Communist Federation of Argentina. Influenced by his father's political ideas, and sympathetic to its populist platform, he became affiliated with the Peronist Party, in 1974. Exiled in Europe during a subsequent, right-wing dictatorship, he returned in 1982 and resumed his political activities ahead of the imminent return to democracy. He was introduced to longtime Peronist leader Antonio Cafiero, and he organized the Movimiento Unidad, Solidaridad y Organizacin (MUSO), searching and advocating for an internal renewal of the party. There, he started his long political career in Peronism, working as communications director and spokesperson for Cafiero, who was a successful candidate for Governor of the Province of Buenos Aires, in 1987.Guido di Tella, the newly designated ambassador to Washington, named Telerman his press attach in 1990. He later took on various diplomatic responsibilities: he was secretary for institutional relations and spokesman to the Foreign Affairs Office between 1991 and 1992; in 1993 he became the press attach of the Argentine embassy in Pars, and from 1995 to 1998 a consultant to the General Secretary of the Organization of American States, former Colombian President Dr. Csar Gaviria, as well as its public information director. In 1998 he was appointed ambassador to Cuba. He returned to Buenos Aires to be an advisor and consultant for the unsuccessful presidential campaign of Peronist candidate Eduardo Duhalde, and in 1999 he was elected to the Argentine Chamber of Deputies, representing Buenos Aires.Between 2000 and 2003 he held an executive position as Secretary of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires. He had a very prolific administration, mainly because of the multiple activities he undertook in this area, and the national and international attention these activities helped bring to the City of Buenos Aires, in the cultural field. He was sworn as Vice Mayor to Anbal Ibarra on December 10, 2003. The Vice Mayor oversaw the Secretariat for Social Development and was President of the Buenos Aires City Legislature. At the end of 2005, he resumed his office as Vice Mayor and President of the Buenos Aires City Legislature. The tragic Repblica Croman nightclub fire in late 2004 ultimately resulted in Mayor Ibarra's March 13, 2006, impeachment, however, upon which Telerman became Mayor of Buenos Aires. He decided to run for re-election as Mayor but came in third, with 20.7% of the votes. He placed behind a candidate advanced by President Nstor Kirchner (Education Minister Daniel Filmus), with 23.7%, and businessman Mauricio Macri, whose Republican Proposal (PRO) Party won with 45.6% of the total votes. Telerman relinquished his office on December 9, 2007.------Religious work of grandfather clocksIn the Epistle-dedicatory to Sir Henry Fanshaw, knight, the king's remembrancer in his highness's court of Exchequer, prefixed to Attersoll's 'Historie of Balak,' he speaks, among other of Fanshaw's acts of kindness shown towards him, 'of the fauour you shewed me at my repaire vnto you, in that trouble which befell me about the poore liuing that now I enioy.' Succeeding sentences state that the 'trouble' was occasioned by a suspicion on the part of Attersoll's parishioners that the new parson was too much of a scholar, and unlikely to be a preacher after the type of their former.Attersoll was the author of many biblical commentaries and religious treatises. His earliest works were entitled 'The Pathway to Canaan' (1609) and 'The Historie of Balak the King and Balaam the false Prophet' (1610). These, with others of the same kind, all in quarto, were, severally, expositions of portions of the book of Numbers, and were ultimately brought together in a noble folio of 1300 pages in 1618. In the quartos and folio alike there is abundant evidence of wide if somewhat undigested learning, penetrative insight, and felicitous application in the most unexpected ways of old facts and truths to present-day circumstances and experiences. All this applies especially to his 'New Covenant' (1614), and to his next important work, which reached a second edition in 1633, viz. 'A Commentarie upon the Epistle of Saint Pavle to Philemon Written by William Attersoll, Minister of the Word of God, at Isfield in Sussex. The second edition, corrected and enlarged' (1633). It is this volume that has been wrongly assigned to William Aspinwall.In 1632 Attersoll published a volume called the 'Conversion of Nineveh.' In the Epistle-dedicatory to Sir John Rivers he writes of himself as an old man: 'Having heretofore upon sundry occasions divulged sundry bookes which are abroad in the world, whereby I received much encouragement, I resolved, notwithstanding being now in yeares, and as it were donatus rude, preparing for a nunc dimittis, utterly to give over and to enjoyne myselfe a perpetuall silence touching this kind of writing, and content myselfe with performing the other more necessary duty of teaching. Nevertheless, being requested, or rather importuned, by friends to publish some things which had been a long time by mee ... I deliuered into their hands these three treatises.' The other two treatises (besides 'Nineveh') are 'God's Trvmpet sovnding the Alarme' (1632)and 'Phisicke against Famine, or a Soueraigne Preseruatiue' (1632).He was the maternal grandfather of Nicholas Culpeper. Shortly after his birth Culpeper's father died, and he was removed to Isfield where he was brought up by his mother. Attersoll was a great influence on the young boy's political and religious beliefs, and taught him up to the age of 16 both latin and greek. As a boy Culpepper became interested in astronomy, astrology, time, his grandfather's collection of clocks, and the medical texts found in Attersoll's library. It was his grandmother who introduced him to the world of medicinal plants and herbs.
LED Lights Save Endangered Sea Turtle Hatchlings
Artificial lighting is threatening the sea turtle population. After emerging from their shells in the wee hours of the morning, sea turtle hatchlings instinctively find their way to the sea by the light reflected on the ocean. Modern society is now posing a threat to their survival as the brightest light is no longer coming from the ocean, but from hotels and shops along the ocean front. This causes the turtles to become disorientated, lose their bearings and either die of dehydration, get run over by cars or are eaten by birds, according to Scientific American.Tens of thousands of sea turtle hatchlings die a year along Florida coasts, posing a great threat to three endangered sea turtle species. To help protect the population, new LED lights have been installed along the beach front that operate at lower levels of visible light and wavelength to reduce disorientation for the turtles. The LED lights have a wavelength that is too low to affect the sea turtles as it is on the yellow/orange part of the light spectrum.The Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) reported that areas that have made the switch have already seen a rapid decline in disorientation for the turtles. Some areas have reported numbers falling from hundreds each year to zero.More info you can visit: lead-lighting.com/led--high-bay-light/ld-hbl-30w-cl1led-high-bay-light-30w.htm·RELATED QUESTIONWhat are some of the cleverest inventions and ideas ever?

Plain and simple.Additionally, any time that it is suggested that a programs funding be frozen at current levels, or even not increased as much as expected over the previous budget, those in D.C. always cry to the media about important programs being defunded. That means that by use of the term that Biden has used in the past, and surrounded himself with for forty years that he was talking about defunding the police.But, yes, Wallace was correct that Biden did not say abolish the police, nor did he say to completely defund them.------When i connected 4 LEDs i read 0.5 volt on my voltmeter.I added 4 more LEDs and it reads 1 volt,why is that?Assuming they aren't connected to a power supply, probably the ambient room light is charging them up and your voltmeter is loading them down a little bit, too. LEDs work as light sensors as well as light emitters.If you are trying to use your LEDs as light sensors, that's one thing. (A lot of methods are available there.) If you are trying to use them as a power source, that's going to be a lot more complicated (and mostly impractical except in rare circumstances where you actually know what you are doing and why.)Regardless of any of that, you can't expect to increase both voltage and current without an external power supply. Useful power out is always less than useful power in. You can "optimize" the load point to improve the net power extracted from a solar cell (or, for gosh sake, an LED.) But that's circuit design, not a violation of physical laws.------How much have you grown as a person from the time of your first Quora answer to your most recent?I think I have grown as a person. I like Quora because it gives me a chance to think and write on subjects that are important to me, learn and possibly, on rare occasion help someone.I get a lot of satisfaction from writing on Quora and so far I havent been trolled which I have an aversion to. I think a lot of questions have answers that are easily found elsewhere but not the qualitative kind.I would turn off my stats if I could but I dont really want to be anonymous. My picture and name are not my own and thats enough. I am not really interested in the numbers game, just the questions and answers. I dont care about being upvoted or not. It is nice to be published and have a database that has all of my musings. It is a modern form of self-reflection or contemporary intellectual snapshot.As far as things to do on the internet there is a lot worse out there.------What is the worst personnel ratio in which wars have been won?The battle of Auerstedt in 1806. (1:2 ratio)A single corps of the French Army defeated the entire Prussian army. The French were measly 27,000 and the Prussians were 62,000, more than double the number of French.The battle started when they collided with single divisions in morning. Both the sides started getting reinforcements piece-meal. However, the Commander of the French III corps was none other than Louis Nicholas Davout, whose superb training and stern discipline created the best fighting force of the Grand army. The Prussian Army had somewhat rotted. From the days of Fredrick the Great, the Prussians had lost their discipline.In the end, the entire Prussian line was broken, their commanders were mortally wounded and the French were counter attacking.In an age where line formations formed and even small number of troops could be used for flanking formations, this battle can be considered epic.Another battle that comes to my mind is the Battle of Saragarhi Ratio (21 Sikhs vs. 10,000 Afghans). The sikhs fought to the last man and killed or wounded approximately 180450 Afghans. So yes its a strategic victory.Hope this helps !------Why has Norway not joined the EU?HiNorway let its citizens decide and they voted against. Instead of that, Norway joined the EEA, and is therefore part of the European Market (including the right to enjoy and the plight to grant the Four Freedoms to other European citizens).To be a member of EEA, Norwayhad to accept the basic constitution of the single markethad to accept the jurisdiction of European Courtshas to accept new laws and regulation from the EU, to a certain degreepays substantial amounts to the European Union, without having a say in its politics and decisionsSo You might argue that itd be more clever for Norway to be an EU member. However, it would also mean giving away more juridical power, and accepting external policies (e.g. on fishing, which is much more regulated by Norway then by other EU members). At least, being a member of the single market is as valuable to Norway that theyre willing to accept all this to gain acces.------Why is Russia apparently such a big threat to the US?Russia and the United States do not share the same agendas and have contradicting interests in regards to peace and stability. Russia isnt necessarily a threat to US national security but more of a threat to their national interests and agendas (though national security and interest do coincide).Path to U.S.-Russia CooperationAmerican Interests, Russian InterestsRecently, the Middle East has become a hot debate with the two nations conflicting agendas.U.S.-Russia Competition in the Middle East Is BackUS and Russia Interests in Middle EastThe two nations contradicting interests heated up in UkraineThe True Interests of the US and Russia in UkraineThe Obama Doctrine and UkraineBut most of all, Syria has been the center of the two nations heated agenda rivalry, some calling it a proxy conflict between the twoSyria crisis: Where key countries stand - BBC NewsThe Syria Strike: Are the United States and Russia On a Collision Course?Russia versus the United States in SyriaRussias interests - What Russia Wants in SyriaUnited States interests - Americas Vital Interests in Syria------Some scientists often consent to this statement: "For every creation, there should be a creator." Would you deny this?Im not sure if it was intentional, but your question commits the fallacy of begging the question. An argument begs the question when it assumes what it claims to prove. The Mona Lisa is a creation. Does the Mona Lisa have a creator? Well, of course it does. It couldnt be a creation if it didnt!Its a pedestrian truism that all creations have creators. The meaningful question is whether the natural worldor at least certain aspects of itare creations. If it can be shown that they are, then the theist has established something significant. Of course, he still hasnt proven theism. Even if the natural world has a creator, it doesnt follow that the creator is omnipotent, omniscient, morally perfect, eternal and possessed of the other properties ascribed to the theistic god. Still, it would be a nice start. But many people have proposed arguments for this conclusion and so far none has survived rational analysis.

LED Light Pole Material Is Complete
Sprint Cup Series of light poleCar No. 52 historyPaulie Harraka drove the No. 52 Ford at 2013 Sonoma, using Brian Keselowski Motorsports' owners points to make the field. Harraka crashed his car before the start of the race but the team was able to make repairs and finished 39th.Car No. 79 historyFor the 2012 season, Go Green Racing added a part-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team to their racing efforts, with driver Tim Andrews being hired to drive and his father Paul Andrews acting as crew chief; they were the first father and son driver and crew chief combination in the series since 1987. The team planned to attempt 10 to 12 races over the course of the season. Andrews failed to qualify in the team's first effort at the STP 400 at Kansas Speedway; veteran Scott Speed was hired to drive the No. 79 Ford, qualifying for the Bojangles Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway for the team's first race, where he finished 42nd; at Dover later that spring, he qualified for the team's second straight race, only to be caught up in an early wreck and finish 43rd.Car No. 32 historyIn late 2013, Go Green and FAS Lane Racing announced that they were entering into an alliance to jointly field the No. 32 in the Sprint Cup Series in 2014.------Beach Soccer Intercontinental Cup of football soccerThe 2017 Beach Soccer Intercontinental Cup, also known as the Huawei Beach Soccer Intercontinental Cup Dubai 2017 for sponsorship reasons, was the seventh edition of the Beach Soccer Intercontinental Cup, an annual international beach soccer tournament contested by men's national teams, held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.After the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, the Intercontinental Cup is the biggest tournament in the current international beach soccer calendar. Similar to the FIFA Confederations Cup, eight nations took part, with one team representing each of the six continental football confederations (except for the OFC) as well as the current World Cup champions, Brazil, and the hosts, the United Arab Emirates.The tournament started with a group stage, played in a round robin format. The winners and runners-up from each group advanced to the knockout stage, in which the teams then competed in single-elimination matches, beginning with the semi-finals and ending with the final. A third-place deciding match was also contested by the losing semi-finalists. The third and fourth placed nations from each group played in a series of consolation matches to decide fifth through eighth place.This tournament was the last in a deal signed between Beach Soccer Worldwide (BSWW) and the Dubai Sports Council (DSC) in 2012 in which it was agreed the two parties would organise the tournament until 2017. This year's event occurred between October 31 and November 4.Brazil were the defending champions and successfully retained their title by beating Portugal in the final to claim their third Intercontinental Cup crown.------Neo Geo Cup '98: The Road to the Victory of video cableNeo Geo Cup '98: The Road to the Victory is a soccer video game based on the FIFA World Cup 1998, despite being released after the 1998 FIFA World Cup. It features 64 teams' countries. Each team enters a "Regional Qualifying Round Final" where it plays a team it actually played in the 1998 FIFA World Cup qualification. For example: Spain would face Yugoslavia, an opponent it actually faced in its qualifying group. Or Italy would face Russia, an opponent Italy faced in the UEFA play-offs. If the player beats the opponent, it goes to a group much like the real life World Cup. In fact, the team faces opponents that were actually in its group. For example: Mexico would face the Netherlands, Belgium and South Korea. It is a re-make of Super Sidekicks 3. However, animations and designs were exactly the same. The only difference is teams to reflect the World Cup, kits again to reflect the World Cup, and players to resemble squads from the World Cup (teams that did not qualify use line-ups from friendly games and qualifiers). Its slogan is "We got the kick".Unlike its arcade counterpart, the Neo Geo version tries to be more of a soccer simulation game. Differences include the Neo Geo version being more slowed down, and more realism added in shooting, passing, etc. A color version of the game was released for the Neo Geo Pocket Color as Neo Geo Cup '98 Plus Color.------Challenge Cup of JOINThe 2016 Challenge Cup, (also known as the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup for sponsorship reasons) was the 115th staging of the Challenge Cup the main rugby league knockout tournament for teams in the Super League, the British National Leagues and a number of invited amateur clubs.The cup was won by Hull F.C. who beat Warrington Wolves 1210 in the final at Wembley Stadium on 27 August 2016.The defending champions, Leeds Rhinos who were looking to win the trophy three times in a row were defeated by Huddersfield Giants in the sixth round.The format of the competition is eight knock-out rounds followed by a final. The first two rounds are composed entirely of amateur teams. The nine winners of the second round ties are joined in round 3 by the 15 Championship 1 teams. For the fourth round the 12 Championship teams are included in the draw. Starting in 2015 and continuing for the 2016 competition round 5 sees four Super League teams entering the competition. These are the four teams that finished in the bottom four positions of the 2015 Super League and are; Widnes Vikings, Hull Kingston Rovers, Salford Red Devils, and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats. These are the same four teams that joined at this stage in the 2015 competition. The remaining eight Super League teams join in round 6.------Stanley Cup playoffs of wristThe 2007 Stanley Cup playoffs of the National Hockey League began on April 11, 2007. The sixteen teams that qualified, eight from each conference, played best-of-seven series for conference quarterfinals, semifinals and championships, and then the conference champions played a best-of-seven series for the Stanley Cup. The series ended on June 6 with the Anaheim Ducks defeating the Ottawa Senators in five games to win their first ever championship.For the first time in NHL history, neither of the two teams that played in the previous year's Stanley Cup Finals (the Carolina Hurricanes and the Edmonton Oilers) qualified for the playoffs. For the first time since 1994, all four former WHA teams; Carolina (formerly the Hartford Whalers), Colorado (formerly the Quebec Nordiques), Edmonton, and Phoenix (formerly the Winnipeg Jets) missed the playoffs in the same year, this would not happen again until 2013. Also for the first time since 1994, the Philadelphia Flyers missed the playoffs. This was the only time that the Atlanta Thrashers qualified for the playoffs in their twelve years in Georgia (they became the new Winnipeg Jets in 2011).Only two Original Six teams made the playoffs this year, the New York Rangers and the Detroit Red Wings (this included the Montreal Canadiens' and the Toronto Maple Leafs' first absence from the tournament together since 1970). This only happened twice before in 2000 and 2001, and would not happen again until 2018.------World Cup qualifying of JOINThe only time that the Saarland entered the World Cup was for the 1954 event. They were drawn in Group 1 alongside West Germany and Norway, in a triangular series. In the opening round in summer 1953, they won their only competitive away match, beating Norway 32 in Oslo after trailing 02, and with only 10 effective players, after an early substitute due to injury, and Theodor Puff staying on the field with a broken fibula. Thus they still topped the group after West Germany drew their game in Oslo. Saarland were emphatically beaten 30 by West Germany in Stuttgart and could only manage a 00 draw at home against Norway. Both German teams were placed joint first until West Germany beat Norway 51, putting an end to Norwegian hopes. The remaining inter-German match, to be played after a four-month winter hiatus, would decide which one of the German teams should advance to the tournament in Switzerland.Saarland, which had already secured second in the group ahead of Norway, needed a win at home to finish first, yet lost 31. Unbeaten West Germany topped the final ranking, went to Switzerland and won the 1954 World Cup there. Sepp Herberger would have capped Kurt Clemens for West Germany, but he was ineligible like all others who had played international games for Saarland.This was the Saarland's only separate entry in the World Cup; its players, coaches and staff would join West Germany to assist in the defence of the World Cup in 1958.------Cup game rhythm of gamingThe cup game begins with a cup placed upside down in front of each player. Assuming a right-handed player, the rhythm normally proceeds as follows:Beat #1: Clap twiceBeat #2: Alternating hands, quickly tap the top of the cup with the fingertips three times (In some variations, the table on either side of the cup is tapped)Beat #3: Clap oncePick up the cup with the right hand and move it to the rightBeat #4: Put the cup down onto the table (still upside down) with a firm percussive motionBeat #1: Clap oncePick up the cup with the right hand so that the cup is now right-side upBeat #2: Tap the top of the cup (the open end of the cup) with the flat of the left hand so as to make a hollow-sounding hitPut the cup down onto the table (now right-side up) with a firm percussive motion, but keeping the right hand on the cupBeat #3: Switch the cup into your left handSlap the right hand down flat onto the tableBeat #4: With the cup still in the left hand, return the cup to its original starting position, upside down on the table in front of the player.Repeat the above sequence indefinitely until a mistake is made by a player, such as being off-beat, knocking the cup over, missing a step, etc. Some versions involve variations where the players exchange cups during the performance of the rhythm, or players slap hands with each other.------Stanley Cup controversy of end capAs a result of the lockout, no Stanley Cup champion was crowned for the first time since the flu pandemic in 1919. This was controversial among many fans, who questioned whether the NHL had exclusive control over the Cup. A website known as freestanley.com (since closed) was launched, asking fans to write to the Cup trustees and urge them to return to the original pre-NHL Challenge Cup format. Adrienne Clarkson, then Governor General of Canada, alternately proposed that the Cup be presented to the top women's hockey team in lieu of the NHL season, but this idea was so unpopular with NHL fans, players, and officials that the Clarkson Cup was created instead. Meanwhile, a group in Ontario, also known as the "Wednesday Nighters", filed an application with the Ontario Superior Court, claiming that the Cup trustees had overstepped their bounds in signing the 1947 agreement with the NHL, and therefore must award the trophy to any team willing to play for the cup regardless of the lockout.On February 7, 2006, a settlement was reached in which the trophy could be awarded to non-NHL teams in the event the league does not operate for a season, but the dispute lasted so long that, by the time it was settled, the NHL had resumed operating for the 200506 season, and the Stanley Cup went unclaimed for the 200405 season.
What Are Some False Things That People Are Led to Believe About US Culture From Hollywood Media?
no cause i agree. The business of america is show business1. In the US culture, what 'lies' are acceptable? Which are not? What are some examples?An old story:As the weather is getting warmer, the wife gets out last summer's wardrobe and tries on her slacks. "Does this outfit make me look fat?" She asks her husband. There is only one correct answer, as all husbands should know. "No, dear. " It does not matter if that is the truth. There is a higher purpose here - preserving the relationship. The same things happens when the husband is combing his hair and asks, "Am I getting bald?" The wife can answer, "A little thin on top," but that is all. Never say yes to this question.But joking aside, "white lies" are okay - The dinner is wonderful. Your bride is beautiful. Such a handsome son. Such a cute baby. A lovely home. Only someone, like your mother, can tell you that you need to use deodorant, or that you have bad breath. Being blunt is something that is very difficult to pull off socially.Perhaps this is because in a place with so many people who are new arrivals, and many people who move to new towns or states, public friendliness and politeness help keep the social world moving. It is one thing if you mostly socialize with your close relatives and friends from childhood, but quite a different thing when you are often in situations where you must establish harmonious relations with new people2. Conservatives love to speak against multiculturalism, so let me ask you this: what exactly is our US culture?look to the stereotypical deep south, THAT is the ideal conservative culture3. What makes the current US culture so broken?The U.S.has NEVER had much of a culture4. In US culture, should I tip the cashier/waiter if I am getting a to-go order from a restaurant/bar inside a hotel?Yes, but not as much as you would dining in.I tell you what... I blame it all on Starbucks & those damn tip jars that stare you in the face when you are paying for your coffee! Prior to those tip jars being at every Subway, Starbucks, Cold Stone, Cinnabon & every other place that employs pimply faced teenagers... People, in general, knew when a tip was required. Things have changed a lot in this industry. When I started, servers earned minimum wage & were NOT required to report any tips to their employer. I had been at my first waitressing job for over a year before they required us to start reporting 8% of our credit card sales. That Was in CA. My most recent job, in Idaho, I made significantly less than minimum wage & how they did the tips there, was they just taxed you as if you were making minimum wage. i would work some lunch shifts where I would eave with $5 in tips, but dinner shifts on the weekends, I could pull in $150. God... I hated that job! EXCEPT, those who receive a tip out from someone else, such as your server, unless you feel that person exceeded expectations & you want to give them "more". Depending on the establishment, your server will generally tip out busboys, hosts & bar staff. Sometimes, as in sushi restaurants, they will tip out the chefs. So, it is important to always leave a tip. Take out orders do not require nearly the same amount of service as a sit down meal, but they do require a server to break away from the customers who ARE dining in, to ensure that your meal is up to standard, pack it, ring it up, etc. When it's busy, that can be a tremendous hardship to do that. I worked at a very popular restaurant in LA, that was KNOWN for their take-out service. We had a separate level downstairs dedicated to just take-out. Weekends would have 4-6 people in a very tight space, each with a different duty, from phones, to packing, to making salads! We did app. $2000 in take-out & delivery & we earned every penny we made in those tips. I always say it is good practice to tip those who could possibly mess things up for you to the point where you could potentially have a bad experience. People get mad at me for suggesting that a server would do something to your food, or stop refilling your water, but I would not leave any of that to chance, personally. I once had a friend who would leave $20 in her hotel room every day she expected maid service. She told me she did that to ensure that none of her belongings would come up missing. I thought that was brilliant! Just sayin'...
Diy 8 X 8 Rgb Led Matrix with Controller
After making the 8 x 8 LED Matrix and Controller as part of my DIY Arduino Word-Clock, I had a view to making an RGB version of the LED Matrix.Unlike a monochrome LED Matrix, an RGB LED Matrix uses either Common Anode or Common Cathode LED. On the one hand, this simplifies matters somewhat, as you do not have so many connections and you can control a single set of Anodes (or Cathodes) in your multiplex of LED. On the other hand, this also means that an RGB LED Matrix is not simply an extension of a Monochrome LED Matrix, so I can't simply expand the controller to accommodate the additional LED colours.Before I continue, let me just say that there are many different approaches to achieving an RGB LED Matrix and the approach that I have taken is, by no means, the best or only method. The method that I have adopted makes use of 4 x 74HC595 Shift Registers to control the switching on and off of the LED.Initially, this instructable will deal with the physical construction of the matrix and controller as a "recipe" without any correspondence to the software side of the control for the matrix. I will touch on the software as a "conversation" and to give you an idea of where I am heading with the hardware.I will, at a later date, delve more into the software for driving the RGB LED Matrix.Parts ListAll parts were sourced from EBayOptional StuffThis is other stuff that I have used in making the matrix, such as a timber border for the plywood board. You might want to mount the board differently, so don't let me oppress your design id.When designing your LED Matrix, it's a good idea to sketch it out first so that you can work out some of the design problems before committing yourself and your resources to something that may just end up hanging in your workshop until you can find a use for it :) I have a couple of frames in my workshop that will languish there until I can come up with another project for them.Underpinning the LED Matrix is the soldering of each LED in the matrix into columns of Anodes and rows of Red, Green and Blue Cathodes (for Common Anode LED).The arrangement of the pins of your LED are critical to the predictable (and functional) working of the Matrix.The first image shows the arrangement of the pins.My RGB LED pins areRed - Anode - Green - Blue.The Red, Green and Blue pins are spread into a three tined (or pronged, if you prefer) fork. While the Anode pin is bent down and then across (as shown in the latter images).To achieve this, I first measured out and drilled the 5 mm holes in the plywood. In my matrix, the holes are 35 mm apart and I have left a 20 mm margin around the board for affixing a border onto the panel (both for aesthetics and for imparting some rigidity into the 6 mm panel).I then sprayed the upper side of the panel with a gloss white paint to give a good reflective surface for the lights.The LED were then inserted into the panel from the back and the Cathode pins were bent into their forks.I cut and stripped some solid core copper wire (from old telephony cabling) and soldered the rows together in their respective colours.With the rows soldered, I then bent the Anode pins, leaving, a 3 gap between the Anode pin and the lower layer of Cathodes. I cut and fitted some shrink tube at the bend so that there was some protection from shorting.Finally, I soldered the columns together and heated the shrink tube to "set" it.With the rows and columns soldered, the next task was to test each LED and each colour to ensure that there were no short-circuits. Usually, this is seen as two LED coming on when only one should :) I did have some shorts in my connections, but fortunately, these were all as a consequence of the forceps used to hold the copper wire touching other row/column traces.With the LED Matrix soldered, it's time for a well earned break.I have opted to make my RGB LED Matrix Controller using the 74HC595 Shift Register. This handy IC is often used to control 8 LED with the Arduino in a very simple Chasing Lights circuit. You can find any number of circuit designs on the Chasing Lights circuit on the interweb, so I won't go into much detail here.Shift Registers take a byte of data (an 8 bit binary number) and send each bit to it's corresponding data pin (of which there are 8). Shift Registers can be "daisy-chained" together with the Serial Output feeding the next Shift Registers Data Input pin. Should you feed a 2-byte (16 bit) number to the network of Shift Registers, the 1st 8 bits are consumed by the 1st Shift Register and the 2nd 8 bit number is consumed by the 2nd, and so on.I have designed my daisy-chain of Shift Registers to be modular - interconnecting "sister" boards, that is, each board has an input and output block of pins which can be connected together to make 4 boards in total.The boards for the Cathodes are the same as each other, the only variation is that the Red Cathode board uses 330 ohm resistors, while the Green/Blue Cathode boards use 220 ohm resistors. This difference in Red versus Green and Blue is as a result of the difference in the forward voltage of the Red element when compared to the Green and Blue elements. If they all had the same value resistor, the board would be strongly red biased, so this is balanced by changing the resistor used.The board for the Anodes is different again as it does not have any resistors, nor does it have an output block (this is the terminal board). The other difference is that the Anode Shift Register does not have the "Output Enable" pin connected, as it is not used in output.The controller is expected to receive a 32 bit binary number from the microcontroller, which is handy, because Arduino doesn't directly handle > 32 bits (AFAIK).The modularity of the boards also means that I can locate them more freely within an enclosure.I made a platform for the Controllers out of an off-cut piece of plywood and some timber stand-offs cut from the 12 mm x 12 mm pine from the frame. The platform serves two purposes:The stand-offs were glued to the underside of the matrix and then the platform was screwed into the stand-offs. Each of the daisy-chained 74HC595 modules were then attached to the platform with 4 M3 nuts and bolts.I'll make another of my Small Footprint ATMEGA328P board to drive the matrix and attach it to the platform.This task is pretty much a procedural one.It's important to progress methodically and with some patience.I started with the Anode (black) rows by measuring each wire in turn, stripping, tinning and adding a Du Pont female connector at one end and then soldering the wire to the appropriate row. As I went, I fitted the Du Pont connector into an 8 pin Du Pont Housing and then tested each anode wire as I went.As I am a little bit OCD, I made sure that I had a heat sink clamp attached to the row when I soldered the line to the row of anodes so that I could be sure that I wouldn't overheat the LED while I was still constructing. This was probably a little bit of overkill as I was not applying heat for more that 1.5 seconds and my iron was set to 320 degrees. The likelihood of heat damage was very low. But, then again, replacing a burned out LED in this matrix would be a pain in the butt.After soldering the Anode rows, I then moved on to soldering the Red, Blue and then Green columns. When I was soldering the columns, I passed the wire under the anode line so that there was an isolated spacer separating the anode from the cathodes ... although, that doesn't protect the other anode rows.With the platform, circuitry and wires the clearance that I need behind the LED matrix is approximately 30 mm. When I come to building the housing for the LED Matrix, I will need to make allowance for this in my design.I've made a Small Footprint ATMEGA328P board to control the 4 x 74HC595 boards and fitted it onto the platform at the back of the matrix.To connect the ATMEGA328P to the controller boards, I made a simple connector board with a couple of pin headers soldered to wires with a 5 pin Du Pont connector. This means that the connections to the controller boards is as low profile as I can manage (without soldering the wires directly to the ATMEGA328P board. I don't want to do that because I want to be able to plug in my ICSP add-on board to program the ATMEGA328P, maybe change the sketch, maybe add in some other jiggery-pokery (such as a WiFi module later on).I've made use of MadWorm's PWM/SPI sketch to control the matrix, and I am very pleased to say that it works just peachy.The last two images show the 8 x 8 RGB LED Matrix in action with the sketch.All in all, I am very pleased with the results.I hope that this instructable is useful for y'all.So far, the LED Matrix and Controller are independent of any software. The Matrix doesn't care about the controller, so long as it can send HIGH/LOW instructions, it isn't bothered.The Controller doesn't care about the Matrix, nor does it care about the microcontroller. All that the Controller cares about is GND, Vcc (5V), Data, Latch, and Clock data. Where that comes from ... it doesn't care.This is a classic case of functional abstraction. Each of the components manage their own functionality.Before I start coding, I need to work on manufacturing a case for the LED Matrix. The overall design is still an open question. I am building the LED Matrix as a fairly simple piece of wall art, so the case design that I am leaning toward is a fairly standard square "shadow box" frame.In terms of my design goals for the software to run the LED Matrix, initially, I am going to work on a simple bit of control where each colour is either On or Off. When I have that working, I will start working on a design using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) so that I can have each of the colours on for a given percentage. As the Arduino doesn't allow me to do this via hardware PWM, I will have to implement software PWM ... luckily for me, there are some pretty good libraries and examples for that out there.Anyway, I will see you all soon.
