Gadzooks – pushing camera sensors to their limit!

October23

News just in from dpreview.com: Sensor manufacturer OmniVisionhas created what has now been confirmedas the smallest commercially-available image sensor in the world by Guinness World Record. The OmniVision OV6948is an ultra-compact 1/36-inch backside-illuminated sensor that measures just 0.575mm x 0.575mm. The sensor, designed specifically for medical applications, features a resolution of 200 x 200 pixels, […]

Doing Maths can be a real pain, but…

July27

“Mathematics can be difficult, and a new study shows even thinking about doing it can physically hurt. Researchers Ian Lyons and Sian Beilock at the University of Chicago have shown how increases in brain activity appear in regions associated with pain and threat detection, when people with “high levels of mathematics-anxiety” are presented with mathematic […]

The graph on the left (Coronavirus) is for a time period of 30 days, while the one on the right (SARS) is for 8 months! Very poor graphical comparison and hardly relevant, unless it is attempting to downplay the seriousness of the coronavirus?

10 x 9 x 8 + (7 + 6) x 5 x 4 x (3 + 2) x 1 = 2020

NCEA Level 2 Algebra Problem. Using the information given, the shaded area = 9, that is:
y(y-8) = 9 –> y.y – 8y – 9 =0
–> (y-9)(y+1) = 0, therefore y = 9 (can’t have a distance of – 1 for the other solution for y)
Using the top and bottom of the rectangle,
x = (y-8)(y+2) = (9-8)(9+2) = 11
but, the left side = (x-4) = 11-4 = 7, but rhs = y+? = 9+?, which is greater than the value of the opp. side??
[I think that the left had side was a mistake and should have read (x+4)?]
