Extensica. Fotojurnal Instantaneu Din Canton

Authors: Florentin Smarandache
Comments: 171 Pages.

Cum să traduc din engleză în romȃnă cuvȃntul Extenics (care este conectat cu Extension)? M-am gȃndit la „Extenică” pentru început, romȃnizare a noţiunii, dar mai descriptiv se arată neologismul „Extensică” (amintind şi de Extins, sau Extindere - traducerea lui Extension). EXTENSICA este ştiinţa rezolvării problemelor contradictorii din multe domenii, introdusă de profesorul chinez Dr. Cai Wen în anul 1983. (Autorul) *** Această carte, despre sudul Chinei, continuă noul gen literarartistic lansat de Florentin Smarandache în 2004, numit FOTOJURNAL INSTANTANEU adaptat cerinţelor cititorului şi scriitorului contemporan grăbit, bazat pe abundenţa de imagini corespunzătoare textului, plus scrierea directă, rapidă, la prima mȃnă, pe locul vizitei, cu verbe puţine, şi exprimări scurte, neşlefuite.

Faster than Light Speed as Arbitrary

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski
Comments: 2 Pages. 1 reference

There is no experiment to have shown that light travels at a rate faster than 299,792,458 meters per second. Therefore any hypothesis that claims to have measured objects ejecting material in outer space at rates faster than light are simply arbitrary and ad hoc. Scientists can either keep the laws that we understand and can test, or they can make up fantasy after fantasy to suit their imaginations’ desire.

If Anything Can go Wrong, Pass it on to Someone Else! = Florentin’s Laws =

Authors: F. Smarandache
Comments: 26 Pages.

Being paradoxist in nature, Florentin’s Laws are especially deviations, modifications, generalizations, contra-sayings, parodies, or mixtures of the previous Murphy’s Laws and Peter’s Laws. And also of aphorisms, proverbs, known citations, clichés, scientific results (from physics, mathematics, philosophy, ...), etc. Alternatively, collations of opposite ideas - gathered from folklore, from ads, from literature, from familiar speech. For example, Murphy’s law “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong” which in Peter’s law is stated as: “If anything can go wrong, Fix It!” becomes in Florentin’s law, through deviation: “If anything can go wrong, pass it on to someone else!” in a Machiavelli way, as a mixture of pessimism / optimism and laugh! In the above example, while Murphy’s law output is negative and Peter’s law output is positive, Florentin’s law output is indeterminate [perversity] as in neutrosophic logic (i. e. the problem has not be solved, but passed to another person!... it’s a trickery (deception, cunning, dodge, swindle, caper, subterfuge). Each Florentin's Law should include: negative (pessimism) and positive (optimism) attributes, while its conclusion should be moderate – often trickery bended with humor.

The Art of Wag

Authors: Florentin Smarandache, V. Christianto
Comments: 19 Pages.

This is a unique booklet comprised of advices and possible tips you can use on how to make the best out of your pet/dog in workplace and other situations. Some of these gems come from our own experience, and some come from watching these practices surrounding us. As our last advice before you jump through this book, (a) do these advices at your own risks; (b) managing the dog outside is much easier than managing ‘the dog’ inside yourself; (c) don’t take your dog to workplace/office if you are not confident enough that your dog is always at your side.

Intergalactic Plus Time Travel, Hyperspace and Space-Time’s Nature (These Conclusions Address Unusual Things Like Dark Energy by Associating the Work of Einstein, Early Quantum Theorists, Computer Science and Isaac Newton in Unusual Ways.)

Authors: Rodney Bartlett
Comments: 27 Pages.

Here's a detailed, nonfictional explanation of why time travel (into both the future and past) is not impossible – I’ve tried to exclude mathematics as much as possible since my goal is to present an explanation of physical reality, and to make it comprehensible to the nonmathematician (I have referred to some maths, e.g. the Poincare conjecture, but have always used English). My text also seeks to explain, in nonfictional terms, phenomena such as intergalactic travel, hyperspace and space-time’s nature. This last point includes a new way of viewing gravity which explains dark energy and is based on Einstein’s work – as well as viewing gravity as fundamental to the nuclear forces and electromagnetism as well as fundamental to the composition of matter and mass (also based on Einstein’s work). The article does speak of God, but definitely not in any way you’ve heard of. And while I don’t believe evolution accounts for the origin of living species, I have no doubt that it does cause modifications in those species. To grossly oversimplify the article, intelligent beings spend thousands of years learning more and more about science. Then they discover how to time travel into the past (early 21st-century physics only believes in time travel to the future) where they put future biotechnology and computer science into practice (these sciences are far more advanced than today’s science). While the planned Mars mission of 2018 is robotic, we cannot limit our sights to that since we hope to follow with manned exploration of the Red Planet in the 2030’s. The physical bodies and psychology, as well as technology, we possess now or will possess in the foreseeable future are not well suited to prolonged space travel (e.g. our brains and bodies are vulnerable to radiation, muscle and bone loss, abnormal psychology, etc. when travelling in space … and simply reaching nearby stars would take hundreds or thousands of years). However, there is an alternative to astronauts (or cosmonauts, or taikonauts) reaching Mars and being unable to walk, or think clearly. We can thank the theories of Albert Einstein, an electrical engineering experiment conducted at Yale University in 2009, and some conclusions that logically follow from Einstein/Yale, for pointing the way to this alternative. When fully developed, the “Einstein-Yale Bridge” will take us anywhere in the universe and anywhen in time. There are 2 bonuses - Bonus #1 – Infinite universe, and Bonus #2 – How "Pioneer anomaly" refines Einstein's gravitation / space-time

Nutritional Balance of Cured Meats (2e)

Authors: Jose D Perezgonzalez
Comments: 4 pages, Journal of Knowledge Advancement & Integration (ISSN 1177-4576), Wiki of Science, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License

Perezgonzalez studied the nutritional balance of cured meats in 2011. He found that sandwich-ready cured meats in New Zealand tend to be highly unbalanced, with average BNI values of around 145.09 (foodBNI). When cured meats are considered as part of a diet (ie, all cured meats are consumed approximately in the same proportion over time), such hypothetical diet show an average nutritional balance of BNI 140.91na (dietBNI), being particularly unbalanced towards excess of sodium. Being an animal-derived product, they are also high in protein, fat and saturated fat, and low in carbohydrate, sugar and fiber.

Extensica în Conventional şi Neconventional

Authors: Florentin Smarandache, Tudor Paroiu
Comments: 20 Pages.

Extensica nu este altceva decît mult discutata interdisciplinaritate aplicată în practică care în realitate este studiu al simultaneităţii entităţilor/univers. Ea nu analizează doar două sau mai multe contrarii sau “rezolvarea problemelor contradictorii” ea studiază şi încearcă rezolvarae simultaneităţii entităţilor/univers. Mai exact ea nu studiază doar contrariile ca elemente bipolare ci relaţia dintre două entităţi/univers nu neapărat contrare.

Nutritional Balance of Flavored Low-Fat Soymilk

Authors: Jose D Perezgonzalez
Comments: 3 pages, Journal of Knowledge Advancement & Integration (ISSN 1177-4576), Wiki of Science, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License

This article offers descriptive data regarding the nutritional balance of flavored low-fat soymilk. These data were collected for a research on milk and milk alternatives in New Zealand between 2007 and 2008 (Perezgonzalez, 2008). Flavored low-fat soymilk is an illustrative example of the "unbalancing" effects of added sugar to an otherwise closer to nutritional balance low-fat soymilk. Indeed, the average flavored low-fat soymilk (in this sample) turns out to be adequate in protein, carbohydrate and fat, low in saturated fat, low in fiber, high in sodium, and extremely high in sugar. On average, flavored low-fat soymilk has a nutritional balance of BNI 79.18s, being particularly unbalanced towards excess of sugar.

Nutritional Balance of Low-Fat Soymilk

Authors: Jose D Perezgonzalez
Comments: 4 pages, Journal of Knowledge Advancement & Integration (ISSN 1177-4576), Wiki of Science, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License

This article offers descriptive data regarding the nutritional balance of low-fat soymilk. These data were collected for a research on milk and milk alternatives in New Zealand between 2007 and 2008 (Perezgonzalez, 2008). Low-fat (light, or lite) soymilk is made from soybeans and water, and contains around 1.3% fat. This article, however, analyzes the nutritional balance of low-fat soymilk beyond its fat content. Indeed, the average low-fat soymilk (in this sample) is adequate in fat and low in saturated fat, but also high in protein, low in carbohydrate but high in sugar, low in fiber, and high in sodium (for its energetic content). On average, low-fat soymilk has a nutritional balance of BNI 27.08s, being particularly unbalanced towards excess of sugar.

Conservation

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 6 Pages.

Because this is a General Systems website, I will occasionally point out parallels between the intuitive world views and systems of antiquity, mythology, and religion, and the rational world views and systems of modern-day science, as these convergences urge themselves upon me. This is not to be construed as advocacy of any religion, but as a further demonstration of the fractal nature of reality, including that of our intuitive perceptual modes. Nevertheless, I have no doubt that the existence of such parallels, whether consciously recognized or not, is one reason why the major religious systems have persisted so long and so successfully. I use Christian examples only because that is the religion in which I was raised and am most familiar with. Similar examples could certainly be found in the other major religions by those familiar with them - JAG.

This article offers descriptive data regarding the nutritional balance of standard soymilk. These data were collected for a research on milk and milk alternatives in New Zealand between 2007 and 2008 (Perezgonzalez, 2008). Standard (original or regular) soymilk is made from soybeans and water, and contains around 3% fat. This article, however, analyzes the nutritional balance of standard soymilk beyond its fat content. Indeed, the average standard soymilk is high in fat but low in saturated fat, adequate in protein, low in carbohydrate but high in sugar, low in fiber, and within maximum recommended limits for sodium. On average, standard soymilk has a nutritional balance of BNI 43.16f, being particularly unbalanced towards excess of fat.

This article offers descriptive data regarding the nutritional balance of skimmed milk. These data were collected for a research on milk and milk alternatives in New Zealand between 2007 and 2008 (Perezgonzalez, 2008). Skimmed milk (including skim, low-fat, and trim milk, as well as fat-free, and super-trim milk) is that containing very little fat (around 0.2%). This article, however, analyzes the nutritional balance of skimmed milk beyond its fat content. Indeed, the average skimmed milk (in this sample) is low in fat and saturated fat, high in protein, adequate in carbohydrate but high in sugar, low in fiber, and high in sodium (for its energetic content). On average, skimmed milk has a nutritional balance of BNI 123.16s, being particularly unbalanced towards excess of sugar.

Ergonomization Attitudes in General Aviation

Authors: Jose D Perezgonzalez
Comments: 5 pages, Journal of Knowledge Advancement & Integration (ISSN 1177-4576), Wiki of Science, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License

Casner explored the attitudes of general aviation pilots towards advanced cockpit systems (ACS, namely glass-cockpits) in 2008. He asked a group of general aviation pilots from the California Bay area about their attitudes towards ACS. Although the majority of pilots did not have flying experience with glass-cockpit aircraft, Casner's research found that, in general, pilots believed that ACS were a positive step forward, even when they also perceived them to be potentially problematic. These and other related attitudes towards ACS are not necessarily based on direct experience, thus they may not be particularly reliable and may only represent an idealistic understanding of ACS and their features.

Ergonomization Needs in General Aviation

Authors: Jose D Perezgonzalez
Comments: 4 pages, Journal of Knowledge Advancement & Integration (ISSN 1177-4576), Wiki of Science, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License

Perezgonzalez, Gilbey and Diaz Vilela explored the ergonomization needs of general aviation pilots in 2010. Namely, they asked a group of pilots which technological features (including costs) they thought were important to their main general aviation flight activity. The group was mostly made of New Zealand and North American pilots flying for purposes such as training, instructing, business and recreation. Yet, it included airplane, helicopter and glider pilots, male and female pilots, and pilots with licences ranging from no-licence (ab-initio student) to ATPL. The research found that, overall, the cost (of acquisition and operation) of any technology was the main worry for general aviation pilots (the results also suggested that this might be more important than any other benefit the technology may bring to their flying). Yet, among ergonomic features, all those supporting flight operations (from the calculation of weight and balance to traffic avoidance features) were also of medium importance. Less important were features such as tracking and real-time monitoring, followed by post-flight analysis and 3-D displays.

Perezgonzalez & Lee explored the ergonomization needs of student pilots in 2009. They asked a group of student pilots which technological features they wanted to have when flying (with costs also included as part of those features). They also valued the selected features on their relative importance to each other. Overall, the student pilots valued highly technological features that helped them with their flying (eg, onboard display of navigation charts, airspace awareness functionality, pre-flight route planning, and TCAS functionality), low running costs, post-flight analysis displayed on navigation charts, and equipment portability.

Mistake About Time Travel by “Doctor Who” Writer

Authors: Rodney Bartlett
Comments: 10 Pages.

On page 19 of "Doctor Who Magazine 447", Steven Moffat says "Time travel is impossible." Ouch!! That comment hurt. Here's a detailed, nonfictional explanation of why time travel is not impossible. [While the planned Mars mission of 2018 is robotic, we cannot limit our sights to that since we hope to follow with manned exploration of the Red Planet in the 2030’s. The physical bodies and psychology, as well as technology, we possess now or will possess in the foreseeable future are not well suited to prolonged space travel (e.g. our brains and bodies are vulnerable to radiation, muscle and bone loss, abnormal psychology, etc. when travelling in space … and simply reaching nearby stars would take hundreds or thousands of years). However, there is an alternative to astronauts (or cosmonauts, or taikonauts) reaching Mars and being unable to walk, or think clearly. We can thank the theories of Albert Einstein, an electrical engineering experiment conducted at Yale University in 2009, and some conclusions that logically follow from Einstein/Yale, for pointing the way to this alternative. When fully developed, the “Einstein-Yale Bridge” will take us anywhere in the universe and anywhen in time.]

Comments: 3 pages, Journal of Knowledge Advancement & Integration (ISSN 1177-4576), Wiki of Science, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License

The nutritional balance of sugar-free chocolates was studied by Perezgonzalez in 2011. He found that a sample of chocolate bars, chocolate blocks and bonbons currently available in New Zealand shared a similar nutritional profile characterized as being low in protein, high in fat, high in saturated fat, low in fiber and low in sodium. Sugar-free chocolates, however, differed from other chocolates in also being adequate (or low) in sugar and, consequently, low in carbohydrate. On average, no-added-sugar chocolates have a nutritional balance of BNI 82.73f, being particularly unbalanced towards excess of fat.

The nutritional balance of sugary chocolates was studied by Perezgonzalez in 2011. He found that a sample of chocolate bars, chocolate blocks and bonbons currently available in New Zealand shared a similar nutritional profile characterized as being low in protein, high in fat, high in saturated fat, low in fiber and low in sodium. Chocolates with extra source of sugars (eg, added caramel) differed from other chocolates in also being high in sugars and high in carbohydrate. On average, sugary chocolates have a nutritional balance of BNI 128.26s, being particularly unbalanced towards excess of sugars.
