- Communications in 21st century (new)
As we progress into the 21st century, communications are becoming faster and faster. Think of millions of different media images you are bombarded with every day. It is as important now to be able to read and make sense of these images, as it has been to be able to read ordinary text.
- Electronic discourse (new)
Electronic discourse is one form of interactive electronic communication. In this study, we reserve the term for the two-directional texts in which one person using a keyboard writes language that appears on the sender’s monitor and is transmitted to the monitor of a recipient, who responds by keyboard.
- Magnetars (new)
The best comparison is likely a magnetar, a young neutron star with a powerful magnetic field, the researchers said. Magnetars also produce bright X-ray flares. While magnetars are thought to be young stars, the two flaring objects in this study reside near elliptical galaxies, which contain older stars. So the objects are likely too old to be magnetars, the researchers said.
- The preparation of abstract (new)

- Measuring food (new)
I’m a dietitian and I work in clinical weight-loss recently. Accurately estimating portion size is critical in research or real-world settings. For example, if you’re trying to watch your weight and you’re out to dinner and you’re presented with a bowl of food, there’s no really good way to actually estimate how much you’re eating unless you’re gonna whip some scales out of your bag. So we wanted to find a more objective way for people to quantify what they’re eating when they’re out and about. I came up with a more hands-on approach. We got people to measure the dimensions of the food using the width of their fingers and remembering back to primary school maths. We use the geometric volume formulas to estimate the weight of the food. To show you how this works, I’ve ordered a piece of lasagna. And that’s my box, a glass of wine and that’s my cylinder. And I’m feeling pretty healthy, so I order some watermelon for dessert. And that’s my wedge. So this was I know it’s seven by five, by four fingers. In the future, I see this method be incorporated into smartphone applications. So you put your finger, it’s in along with your height and your weight. And the app will do all of the calculations for you. And then you’ve got a more accurate way to estimate the portion size.
- File a Patent（视频）(new)
We’re thinking about this and we’re trying to say, alright, well, let’s file on a patent on this clicker. If I were to go to the patent office and say, alright, I want a patent on a clicker, period. The patent officer would just laugh. You know, the clicker has been around for a while. Presentation clickers have been around for a while. And so there would be a 0% chance that you would actually get that. If we were to somehow to convince the patent office that we should be able to get on a patent on clicker, period. It would, however, be incredibly valuable. Every single clicker that was made after this point would infringe. And when it infringes, maybe we take one or two dollars each. That would be added up to be a decent amount of money. On the other end of the spectrum, let’s go to the million-word version. I go to the patent office and I say, I want a patent on this exact thing. And those million words describe every single radius, every single material, every single thing about this. And the patent officer says, yeah, we ‘ve never seen that before. Go ahead and take it. Almost 100% of chance of getting that patent, but the value of that patent would be close to zero.
- The Silk Road (仅回忆) (new)
The Silk Road is not like what we thought it would be. People traveled in groups to other countries through the Silk Road, exchanged things, and then came back. There were also some side groups who went to other countries such as India, which was called the ‘Amber Route’. At that time, there was also gift changing happened on the Silk Road.
- Innovation and invention (new)
He says innovation equals invention. Let me just stop here. Innovation equals invention often people mistake these two things for the same thing. Innovation equals invention, they are not. Innovation is something that generates value for the world. It makes something faster, better, cheaper. It gives someone some great satisfaction. An invention is an idea, a technology, a patent. In and of itself, it does not generate value. So these two are not the same thing. And sometimes you see them interchange. And that’s not correct. So innovation equals invention times commercialization. So and when we look at this equation of innovation something of value, it requires a new idea and then it requires someone or some organization that is going to commercialize that idea. And to make it a value to the world.
- Questionnaires (new)
What I’ve decided to provide is the steps that I take when analyzing my own questionnaires. However, before I begin, it would be useful to remind you of a few terms we use when talking about questionnaires. Questions can be divided into three types. This is sometimes called level measurement. Firstly, we have category type questions, which are also known as nominal questions. These are when participants select from a list of categories for their response, such as male or female or they may include ethnic origin. Secondly, we have ordinal type questions. These are similar to category questions. But instead of the categories being independent, there is some sort of order between them. If we ask people to indicate their age in categories. This is an ordinal type question. Thirdly, we have continuous questions. These are any questions that can be answered by a number. It could be an open-ended question asking participants to tell you how many times they attended lectures or how often they used a VLE. Or it could involve asking them to rate the importance of intensity of some experience.
This lecture is about real and fake sunglasses. The real Chloe sunglasses worth 300 dollars, whereas the fake ones are only 30 dollars. Researchers gave the real Chloe sunglasses to a group of people，and they found that those who wore fake ones are more cheating when doing questionnaires. But wearing real ones can increase people’s confidence.
