  • Racism and the Zimmerman trial. How do you feel and why does anyone care?

    Despite what you all say, you love racism and you need it. The media keeps giving you more because it sells and it sells well. If there isn't anything particularly racist about a story that's no problem, they can just fabricate something. Racism sells and you are the consumer. People love dichotomies and the good vs. bad of racism is one that will likely stand the test of time. People love picking a side to stand by until their death. It's sort of like a sad version of the rivalries between sports teams. I could see why racism in this country could exist maybe 100 years ago, but now there is no major cause for it. Nonetheless, we keep it alive through the news and through our debates and endless babbling.

    All this hubub about something that should have died years ago. It's a color and nothing more. It doesn't make you better than the next person, what makes you a better person is what goes on in your mind, your thoughts, morals, and values. So please, turn off your TV, delete that facebook post, and go live your short life doing something productive and respectable.

    Sorry for the rambling and poorly written blob of text above. I had to get that off my chest after months of hearing way too much about an irrelevant trial. Regardless of what side you were on for the Zimmerman trial, you must admit that it was insignificant and a quite silly thing to follow. I'm sorry I spent the time of day writing anything related to that drivel of a "news story". I guess I just wanted to watch the chaos that would ensue, when people started raging about the recently closed case below :).

  • Gaussian elimination of a system ?

    b(x,4,z) + c(-2,4,2)+d(-3,4,3)+(0,-981,0)=0 is a system of three linear equations, where the unknowns are b, c and d (assume x and z are known). Use Gauss's elimination to find b, it will be a function of x and z.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  • Who played Jill in Jack and Jill?

    I just watched it and it was pretty funny. I was too lazy to read the credits, but looking back I would like to see other films that she played in.

  • Are there any programs like adobe flash CS5 for game making?(for c++)?

    I want to make a game in c++, but was wandering if there were any well made game programs similar to flash cs5. I liked it's simplicity and ease of use. I used to make crappy flash games with it (I only knew actionscript 2). Now I am okay with c++ and was wandering if there was an all in one program similar to flash cs5? I doubt one exists, but I still hold on hope :). Please let me know if you know of any :)

    Also I will be making 2d, games that don't need a fancy/ complex engine. Thanks.

  • Simple differentiation (I think) Maximum problem? Basic calc.?

    Find value of t @ which pt a is maximum? : p(t) (12*10^5)t^2(e^1000t)

    Does that question make any sense? I don't understand what point a is? Is it just asking to find maximum? In which case I would just differentiate correct? Thanks.

  • Samsung Galaxy S bluetooth driver? HUGE PROBLEM!?

    I have a samsung galaxy indulge, but I hear the drivers are the same for the more popular galaxy S series. I am trying to pair (not transfer files... I know this works) my phone with my computer for use with an android app called vector IR. I don't think Samsung made any bluetooth drivers for windows 7 and frankly I think that is OUTRAGEOUS! Sorry for my anger, but I have spent the last 4 hours searching for a driver with no luck. If anyone has a work around for Samsung's lack of support for their phones please let me know. I really would love to have this bluetooth working. Thanks

    Also I do have a bluetooth dongle and I do need a driver.For anyone struggling to believe that I need a driver for my bluetooth peripheral device here is a pic:

  • HP computer hdd error? Need help troubleshooting.?

    Okay I have been troubleshooting a computer I received from my parents when it broke down. For the longest time I couldn't get to the bios, but after cycling the memory in and out. I found that two of them were not working and I could only boot to bios with the functional one. So I can get to bios and have been running the hp diagnostic tool. The memory and cpu are fine, but the hard drive always has error code BIOHD-2 (turn off system and check cables). So I have tried this hdd on several different sata ports on two separate sata cables. I also tried it with another hdd with two separate cables on different sata ports. All of these attempts lead to the same error code BIOHD-2. So I know my hdds aren't broken, so what could be the problem? Could it be issues with the motherboard? Any suggestions are appreciated!

    Also I tried booting from a live cd and it wouldn't boot, I don't know why .

    The computer is an hp:

    Product: AY570AA-ABA

    Model: a4316f

    Software Build: A1NAv6PrA1

    Thanks,

  • Metropcs difference in service between two phones?

    At my home I have hardly any service with any carrier. Although, metropcs isn't the best I still can send and recieve texts fairly quickly. I tend to have between one and 0 bars, but as I said texting is not a problem. My sister on the other hand is under the same plan, but doesn't receive texts and sending takes for ever. With her you never really know when the person she is texting will receive the text.

    I have a samsung galaxy indulge: http://reviews.cnet.com/smartphone [...] 99172.html

    She has a Samsung Freeform III:http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phones/samsung-freefo...

    So why do we have such drastic changes in service? Does my phone simply get better reception? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  • A sensor for water/moisture?

    Is there anywhere I can buy say a ten inch strip of water/moisture sensor? I want it to be able to read how wet/moist something is at each point along the strip. For example if the top of the strip is dry and the bottom is wet, I would like to be able to see at what height it changes from wet to dry. Is there any such sensor that I could purchase for a reasonable price? Thanks.
