How to Best Communicate Online

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 09:06:18 -0500

When you're speaking to someone face to face, it's easy to understand what they're saying. After all, we don't only speak with our mouths; we actually communicate using our bodies too.

A Suspicious Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 09:22:26 -0500

I have discovered over the years several types of minds. The "open mind" which catches everything except the truth. The "analytical mind" which organizes everything to the point of sterility. The "closed mind" which you can bounce ideas and they never stick.

Hearing and Listening Are Not Necessarily the Same

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 21:09:11 -0500

As big as my ears are, you would think I would be able to hear everything I am listening to. I like to think I am hearing what I am listening to but I have so many illustrations that prove otherwise. I'm not sure what it is, but I am working on it with the help of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. It was on a Friday and I was very busy trying to get things done for the weekend. Some in our domicile can multitask and then the other can hardly do one thing at a time.

Failure Analysis of Mechatronic Systems

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:25:58 -0600

The failure modes of a mechatronic system include failure modes of mechanical, electrical, computer, and control subsystems, which could be classified as hardware and software failures. The failure analysis of mechatronic systems consists of hardware and software fault detection, identification (diagnosis), isolation, and recovery (immediate or graceful recovery), which requires intelligent control. The hardware fault detection could be facilitated by redundant information on the system and/or by monitoring the performance of the system for a given/prescribed task. Information redundancy requires sensory system fusion and could provide information on the status of the system and its components, on the assigned task of the system, and the successful completion of the task in case of operator error or any unexpected change in the environment or for dynamic environment.

Wireless and Mobile Communication Networks

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:25:54 -0600

Communication without being physically tied-up to wires has always been of interest and mobile and wireless communication networks promise that. The last few years have witnessed unprecedented growth in wireless communication networks. Significant advancements have been made in the technologies that support wireless communication environment and there is much more to come in the future.

The General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB)

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:24:11 -0600

The interface described by IEEE 488 standard, which will be referred to as GPIB in this chapter, is used to connect instruments to test and measurement systems. Examples of such instruments are digital voltmeters, storage oscilloscopes, printers, and plotters. In general, these instruments are called GPIB devices. These devices operate under the coordination of a controller. Most modern systems consist of a cluster of such devices connected to one or more computers. In such a system, one of the computers will become the controller. Historically, the interface was developed by Hewlett-Packard in 1965.

Nano Machines

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 09:37:33 -0600

Nanomachines are devices that range in size from the smallest of MEMS devices down to devices assembled from individual molecules. This section briefly introduces energy sources, structural hierarchy, and the projected future of the assembly of nanomachines. Built from molecular components performing individual mechanical functions, the candidates for energy sources to actuate nanomachines are limited to those that act on a molecular scale. Regarding manufacture, the assembly of nanomachines is by nature a one-molecule-at-a-time operation.

Microprocessors and Microcontrollers

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 09:34:15 -0600

There is no strict border between microprocessors and microcontrollers because certain chips can access external code and/or data memory (microprocessor mode) and are equipped with particular peripheral components. Some microcontrollers have an internal RC oscillator and do not need an external component. However, an external quartz or ceramic resonator or RC network is frequently connected to the built-in, active element of the clock generator. Clock frequency varies from 32 kHz (extra low power) up to 75 MHz. Another auxiliary circuit generates the reset signal for an appropriate period after a supply is turned on.

Did Someone Just Hack My Thermometer?

Sat, 21 Jan 2017 11:01:24 -0600

I do not like to complain (except on certain occasions when nobody is listening) but I am not too happy with the weather these days. I have never felt so cold before. Is it true that the older you get, the less cold temperature you can stand? If it is not true, it sure is true with me. The older I get, the colder I get and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. After all, how many sweaters can you wear at one time?

Are You Really Sorry - How Are Your Communicating Skills?

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 08:08:36 -0600

But the truth is that there are still very many situations and circumstances when sending a letter is inevitable and actually the most professional way of conveying a given message. Whether you are sending a formal or informal letter, there are things you must remember to ensure that your letter mailing efforts yield good results.

Apart From That, I'm Doing Fine!

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 08:27:46 -0600

I know I am not correct on many things, just ask the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. If I could be right as many times as I am wrong, I would be a genius. The problem is, I am more wrong than I am right, which puts me a little bit out of balance. People always say things they really do not mean. I guess they are just trying to be nice and courteous. For instance. My wife will say as I leave the door to go somewhere, "Drive safely."

Verify Emails Online - 4 Reasons You Should Do It

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 08:58:09 -0500

The internet has changed the way we communicate. Emails have replaced letters as the primary means of communication. Each day, there are thousands of new emails being created. But not all of them are genuine as there are dozen methods to create email addresses. To add a few more may be incorrect and others non-operational. It becomes the personal responsibility of the sender to verify emails online. The verification procedure involves identifying whether the email address is valid and deliverable.

How Did the Devil Get My Cell Phone Number?

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 07:50:04 -0500

I am not one easily rattled. When I am rattled, look out for anything can happen. For the most part, I try to stay calm, cool and collected. Then there are times when I have had enough and I am not going to take it anymore. When I am rattled about something, it is not small or insignificant. I can swat pesky little bugs all of my life and never get rattled by a bug.

What If the Corporation Tells You to Lie in a Disclaimer?

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 10:04:33 -0500

To say a disclaimer that is not the truth is a lie. So what does an Executive Producer do when one is pressured to lie in a 'specifically-worded' disclaimer? Under the threat of not having their regular series shows aired on television, some Executive Producers are being threatened that their own shows, their series shows, will not be on air anymore. They "must" have a 'specifically worded' disclaimer on the show, or 'else' the show will not air. What do you think?

Get Me to the Airport on Time

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 07:47:06 -0500

I was off to the airport on another trip. I started out early, arrived at the airport on time, but when I arrived the plane had canceled and I had to apply for another plane. The next plane headed for my destination was about two hours away. This would, in fact, make me miss my connecting flight. I suppose I ought to be grateful that I was able to catch a later flight. It gave me some time to sit in the airport with nothing to do but think. Talk about a boring afternoon!

Disarticulated America (Commentary, and Personal Thoughts)

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:30:35 -0500

The Government of the United States under Obamaism, and preceding with Hillary Clinton, to which surely will remain so if she is to run the country in the near future, will boil us alive, little by little, without us even noticing it. Like a frog in a kettle, turning up the heat little by little, unaware of it, and then never to be aware of it, once dead. This awareness of what is going on at the White House, is short on providing straight answers to simply questions.

Communication Woes

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 07:35:32 -0500

The communication flow within the same age group is always natural and comfortable. There is invariably a communication gap between parents and married children. However there is no communication gap between siblings, although they may not enjoy harmony in their relationship. Children avoid sharing communication with those parents, who are ever ready to offer unsolicited suggestions. They start hiding information from parents. Spouses may accept suggestions from respective parents, but resent the same from in-laws. Parents must respect the privacy of their children's families. An optimum, balanced communication between married children and old parents is a coveted goal for all of us.

What Is an Abstract Ideas Article?

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 11:46:26 -0600

The formation of abstract ideas - While thought and ideas, like language, originate from labour, men likewise develop their thinking and their ideas in the course of the whole of their social activity. Writing of the development of ideas or of human consciousness for the peculiarity of human consciousness is that man is conscious of things not only thorough perceptions but also through ideas Marx and Engels showed that man's consciousness arises and develops "only from the need, the necessity, of intercourse with other men. Consciousness is therefore from the very beginning a social product, and remains so as long as men exist at all."

Was It a Miracle or What?

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 15:57:47 -0600

"Was It a Miracle?" "Are you married?" asked one of my friends. "No, not yet" said I. "I have heard that you have". "No, I say, no" was my answer. "OK! Are you interested in marriage?" said my friend, "I have a match for you, if you so desire". "Well, I am ready". "So we should go to theirs when you are free". "I am ready when you are free, tell me and we go". "No, you see and tell me when you are free". "OK, then let it be on coming Sunday" I said. So it was decided. Time was fixed for us to get together and start for the concerned city, a big one in Pakistan.

Simple Binary-Weighted and R/2R Ladder DAC

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 11:08:53 -0500

A simple 4-bit digital-to-analog converter that is constructed from a digitally controlled switch (74HC4066), a set of binary-weighted resistors, and an operational amplifier. The basic idea is to create an inverting amplifier circuit whose gain is controlled by changing the input resistance Rin. The 74HC4066 and the resistors together act as a digitally controlled Rin that can take on one of 16 possible values. (You can think of the 74HC4066 and resistor combination as a digitally controlled current source.

Analog-To-Digital and Digital-To-Analog Conversion

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 11:08:09 -0500

In order for analog devices (e.g., speakers, temperature sensors, strain gauges, position sensors, light meters, etc.) to communicate with digital circuits in a manner that goes beyond simple threshold triggering, we use an analog-to-digital converter (ADC). An ADC converts an analog signal into a series of binary numbers, each number being proportional to the analog level measured at a given moment. Typically, the digital words generated by the ADC are fed into a microprocessor or micro controller, where they can be processed, stored, interpreted, and manipulated.

Analog Switches and Multiplexer

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 11:07:30 -0500

Analog switches are ICs designed to switch analog signals via digital control. The internal structure of these devices typically consists of a number of logic control gates interfaced with transistor stages used to control the flow of analog signals. The CMOS 4066B quad bilateral switch uses a single supply voltage from 3 to 15 V. It can switch analog or digital signals within _7.5 V and has a maximum power dissipation of around 700 mW.

Tips To Create A Great Whatsapp Status

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 09:16:02 -0500

Whatsapp is a messenger application that has become very popular not just amongst youngsters but also amongst adults because it makes it easy for people to chat and keep in touch. Perhaps the major reason as to why this mobile platform is loved is because messages can be exchanged across all operating systems and all mobile phones. It is also a platform that uses the normal data plan for email and browsing the internet and therefore does not add any extra costs to chat, share videos and audio messages with friends and family.

Op Amp Specifications

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 10:49:41 -0500

Common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR):The input to a difference amplifier, in general, contains two components: a common-mode and a difference-mode signal. The common-mode signal voltage is the average of the two inputs, whereas the difference- mode signal is the difference between the two inputs. Ideally, an amplifier affects the difference-mode signals only. However, the common-mode signal is also amplified to some degree. The common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR), which is defined as the ratio of the difference signal voltage gain to the common-mode signal voltage gain provides an indication of how well an op amp does at rejecting a signal applied simultaneously to both inputs

Things to Know About Diodes

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 15:33:40 -0500

Diodes come in many shapes and sizes. High-current diodes are often mounted on a heat-sink device to reduce their operating temperature. It is possible to place diodes in parallel to increase the current-carrying capacity, but the VI characteristics of both diodes must be closely matched to ensure that current divides evenly (although a small resistor can be placed in series with each diode to help equalize the currents).

Kinds of Capacitors

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 15:32:56 -0500

There are a number of different capacitor families available, each of which has defining characteristic features. Some families are good for storing large amounts of charge yet may have high leakage currents and bad tolerances. Other families may have great tolerances and low leakage currents but may not have the ability to store large amounts of charge. Some families are designed to handle high voltages yet may be bulky and expensive.

Impedance Matching and Unmatched Impedances

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 09:41:30 -0500

Since a transmission line has impedance built in, the natural question to ask is, how does the impedance affect signals that are relayed through a transmission line from one device to another? The answer to this question ultimately depends on the impedance of the devices to which the transmission line is attached. If the impedance of the transmission line is not the same as the impedance of, say, a load connected to it, the signals propagating through the line will only be partially absorbed by the load. The rest of the signal will be reflected back in the direction it came. Reflected signals are generally bad things in electronics.

Future Communications of Mankind

Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistors

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 15:09:49 -0500

Metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) are incredibly popular transistors that in some ways resemble JFETs. For instance, when a small voltage is applied at its gate lead, the current flow through its drain-source channel is altered. However, unlike JFETS, MOSFETs have larger gate lead input impedances (e1014 ?, as compared with 109 ? for JFETs), which means that they draw almost no gate current whatsoever. This increased input impedance is made possible by placing a metal oxide insulator between the gate-drain/source channel. There is a price to pay for this increased amount of input impedance

The 555 Timer IC

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 12:51:33 -0500

The 555 timer IC is an incredibly useful precision timer that can act as either a timer or an oscillator. In timer mode, better known as monostable mode, the 555 simply acts as a "one-shot" timer; when a trigger voltage is applied to its trigger lead, the chip's output goes from low to high for a duration set by an external RC circuit. In oscillator mode-better known as astable mode-the 555 acts as a rectangular-wave generator whose output waveform (low duration, high duration, frequency, etc.) can be adjusted by means of two external RC charge/discharge circuits.

Why Use Prepaid Phone Cards?
