Which is what Southampton manager Graeme Souness (pictured, with head in hands) did when a university student prankster insisted that hapless non-league striker Ali Dia was a chip off the old block, a possible superstar in the mould of the former World Player of the Year. Nowadays he would be asked to submit DVD evidence, attend a trial at the very least, but this was 1996 and Saints were in the middle of an injury crisis. After only one training session and a cancelled reserve match Dia - who was not even Liberian but French-Senegalese - was called to the bench for a Premier League game against Leeds United. When Matt Le Tissier picked up an injury after half an hour, Dia was brought on and his headless-chicken performance quickly showed that someone had been pulling Soueys leg. Taken off after three quarters of an hour, Dia turned up for some physio the next morning, left, and never came back. It turned out he was not a Senegal international, had never played for Paris Saint-Germain and that Weah didnt have a clue who he was. A short spell back in non-league followed before he did the decent thing and went back to university. •Tuesday 16 August 2011

  133. 133. 10 • Amdahls law, also known as Amdahls argument,[1] is named after computer architectGene Amdahl, and is used to find the maximum expected improvement to an overall system when only part of the system is improved. It is often used in parallel computing to predict the theoretical maximum speedup using multiple processors. John L. Gustafson pointed out in 1988 what is now known as Gustafsons Law: people typically are not interested in solving a fixed problem in the shortest possible period of time, as Amdahls Law describes, but rather in solving the largest possible problem (e.g. the most accurate possible approximation) in a fixed "reasonable" amount of time. If the non-parallelizable portion of the problem is fixed, or grows very slowly with problem size (e.g.O(log n)), then additional processors can increase the possible problem size without limit.Tuesday 16 August 2011

The other, he claimed, was X Probably no one would ever know this; it did not matter. In the 1980s,X and Good had shown how neural networks could be generated automatically—self replicated—in accordance with any arbitrary learning program. Artificial brains could be grown by a process strikingly analogous to the development of a human brain. In any given case, the precise details would never be known, and even if they were, they would be millions of times too complex for human understanding. —Arthur C. Clarke, 2001: A Space Odyssey X is an actor in a Koan (attributed to his student, Danny Hillis) from the Jargon file: In the days when Sussman was a novice, X once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6. "What are you doing?" asked X . "I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-tac-toe," Sussman replied. "Why is the net wired randomly?", asked X "I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play," Sussman said. X then shut his eyes. "Why do you close your eyes?" Sussman asked his teacher. "So that the room will be empty." At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.Tuesday 16 August 2011

Shiv Kant Shukla, popularly known as the Y case, which came up for hearing in front of the Supreme Court in December 1975. • Given the important nature of the case, a bench comprising the five seniormost judges was convened to hear the case. The others being future Chief Justices of India----JusticesA. N. Ray, P. N. Bhagwati, Y. V. Chandrachud, and M.H.Beg, stated in the majority decision During the arguments, X at one point asked the Attorney General Niren De: "Life is also mentioned in Article 21 and would Government argument extend to it also?". De answered, "Even if life was taken away illegally, courts are helpless". Justice Beg even went on to observe: "We understand that the care and concern bestowed by the state authorities upon the welfare of detenues who are well housed, well fed and well treated, is almost maternal." However, X resisted the pressure to concur with this majority view. He wrote in his dissenting opinion: The Constitution and the laws of India do not permit life and liberty to be at the mercy of the absolute power of the Executive . . . . What is at stake is the rule of law. The question is whether the law speaking through the authority of the court shall be absolutely silenced and rendered mute... detention without trial is an anathema to all those who love personal liberty.

After receiving his A.A. degree, X transferred to Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where he moderated in the biology department and ultimately completed his senior thesis project in political science and philosophy. He went on to become the colleges youngest ever graduate at age 15. • At age 16, X was accepted into law school at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. He deferred his admission until the fall of 2006 to work as an advisor to Richard Holbrooke, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, and for additional work with the United Nations Childrens Fund(UNICEF). • Holbrooke would later incorporate X as a key member of his team upon his return to government as Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2009. X was among the close staffers reported to be present the night of Holbrookes death in December 2010. • During his time at Yale Law School, X was a summer associate at New York-based law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell. In 2008, he headed a study for the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the Kibera slums of Nairobi, focused on post- traumatic stress disorder stemming from Kenyas election violence. • Still, and rather unfortunately I must add, he is known to the larger pop-culture obsessed crowd because of his estrangement with his famous father.

The way we did it in Z Working with visual effects supervisor Dan Glass, X used a variety of materials for the creation of the universe sequence. “We worked with chemicals, paint, fluorescent dyes, smoke, liquids, CO2, flares, spin dishes, fluid dynamics, lighting and high speed photography to see how effective they might be,” said X. “It was a free-wheeling opportunity to explore, something that I have found extraordinarily hard to get in the movie business. Y didnʼt have any preconceived ideas of what something should look like. We did things like pour milk through a funnel into a narrow trough and shoot it with a high-speed camera and folded lens, lighting it carefully and using a frame rate that would give the right kind of flow characteristics to look cosmic, galactic, huge and epic X,Y and Z.Tuesday 16 August 2011
  182. 182. 8 • Douglas Huntley Trumbull (born April 8, 1942, Los Angeles) is an American film director, special effectssupervisor, and inventor. He contributed to, or was responsible for, the special photographic effects of2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Blade Runner and The Tree of Life, and directed the movies Silent Running and Brainstorm.[Tuesday 16 August 2011
  183. 183. 9 • X himself first came to prominence as a prodigy. When at age 11 he became the youngest student to attend Bard College at Simons Rock inGreat Barrington, Massachusetts. Although Simons Rock specializes in teaching "younger scholars," most of its incoming first-year students are age 16. After receiving his A.A. degree, X transferred to Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where he moderated in the biology department and ultimately completed his senior thesis project in political science and philosophy. He went on to become the colleges youngest ever graduate at age 15. • At age 16, X was accepted into law school at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. He deferred his admission until the fall of 2006 to work as an advisor to Richard Holbrooke, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, and for additional work with the United Nations Childrens Fund(UNICEF). • Holbrooke would later incorporate X as a key member of his team upon his return to government as Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2009. X was among the close staffers reported to be present the night of Holbrookes death in December 2010. • During his time at Yale Law School, X was a summer associate at New York-based law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell. In 2008, he headed a study for the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the Kibera slums of Nairobi, focused on post- traumatic stress disorder stemming from Kenyas election violence. • Still, and rather unfortunately I must add, he is known to the larger pop-culture obsessed crowd because of his estrangement with his famous father. The reason is rather icky with his mother and sister being a rather big part of the problem. • Who is he? Who is his more famous father?Tuesday 16 August 2011

  189. 189. 7 • In 1902, agents of X bribed a theater owner in London for a copy of Y by Z. X then made hundreds of copies and showed them in New York City. Z received no compensation. He was counting on taking the film to the US and recapture its huge cost by showing it throughout the country when he realized it had already been shown there by X. This effectively bankrupted X. • Other exhibitors similarly routinely copied and exhibited each others films. • To better protect the copyrights on his films, X deposited prints of them on long strips ofphotographic paper with the U.S. copyright office. Many of these paper prints survived longer and in better condition than the actual films of that era.Tuesday 16 August 2011

  193. 193. 9 • There are 2 main theories as to the origin of a certain practice. The nature of the dying process of Y and the post-war poverty of the country is one reason.The other reason that has its origin more in myth than reality.is the notion because the original X founders never washed Y. The proponents of this theory assert that Y gets gradually dirtier and dirtier. • What are we talking about here?Tuesday 16 August 2011
  194. 194. 9 • The colour of belts in Karate • In the old days the white belt was simply dyed to a new color. This repeated dying process dictates the type of belt color and the order of the colors!. The standard belt color system is white, yellow, green, brown, and black. In some Karate school and styles, the color order is white, yellow, orange, green, blue, brown, black. •Tuesday 16 August 2011

  200. 200. 11 • White Light is a book by Rudy Recker where the concept of infinity is explored through many scientists and concepts. Much like Flatland which explores the idea of multiple dimensions. • In this new world, Felix encounters famous scientists and mathematicians such Albert Einstein and Y , who all reside in a hotel that is based on X. Felix stays there after Kathy leaves him; the hotel is full, but Felix has the desk clerk move everybody one room up, leaving an empty room for him. • The paradox is not a paradox so to speak more of a method of counter-intuitive thinking a hypothetical hotel with countably infinite many rooms, all of which are occupied – that is to say every room contains a guest. One might be tempted to think that the hotel would not be able to accommodate any newly arriving guests, as would be the case with a finite number of rooms. • Y especially has a lot to do with the funda behind X since he came up with the concepts of countably infinite sets and one of Yʼs theorems states that the power set of a countably infinite set is uncountably infinite. Suppose that the Grand Hotel does not allow smoking, and no cigars may be taken into the Hotel. Despite this, the guest in room 1 goes to the guest in room 2 to get a cigar. The guest in room 2 goes to room 3 to get two cigars - one for himself and one for the guest in room 1. In general, the guest in room N goes to room (N+1) to get N cigars. They each return, smoke one cigar and give the rest to the guest from room (N-1). Thus despite the fact no cigars have been brought into the hotel, each guest can smoke a cigar inside the property. The fallacy of this story derives from the fact that there is no inductive point (base-case) from which the induction can derive. Although it is shown that if the guest from room N has (N+1) cigars then both he and all guests in lower-numbered rooms can smoke, it is never proved that any of the guests actually have cigars. The fact that the story mentions that cigars are not allowed into the hotel is designed to highlight the fallacy. However, unless it is shown that in the limit there is a guest with infinitely many cigars, the proof is flawed regardless of whether or not cigars are allowed in the hotel. X and Y please.Tuesday 16 August 2011

The killings, credited to Kim Jong-ils power consolidation,[1] and the response three days later (Operation Paul Bunyan) heightened tensions between North and South Korea as well as their respective allies, the Soviet Union, the Peoples Republic of China, and the United States. • Korean DMZ • TIL Operation Paul Bunyan involved the US military sending 800 troops, 7 Cobra attack helicopters, B-52 bombers, and F-4 fighters and mobilizing 12,000 additional troops in order to cut down one single tree.Tuesday 16 August 2011

  212. 212. Part-1 • These two fake/humourous units(A and D) of measurement are related in more ways than one. • The A is a measurement of Twitter followers relative to celebrity A1. The measurement was standardized when A1 achieved half a million Twitter followers, with the effect that A1 now has 3.4 As himself. As few Twitter users have millions of followers, the milliB (500 followers) is more commonly used. • He is the arch nemesis of B. • B attempts to collaborate with C who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2006 for his work as cited “the black body form and anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background radiation.” He fails miserably. • C is a first cousin of D.Tuesday 16 August 2011
  213. 213. Part-I(contd.) • The D is a unit of length, defined as the height of D1 — who, fittingly, was later the president of the E. • The unit is used to measure the length of the Harvard Bridge. The bridge was measured to be 364.4 Bs, plus or minus one ear, using Mr. D himself as a ruler. At the time, B was 5 feet, 7 inches, or 170 cm, tall. • Google Earth and Google Calculator includes the D as a unit of measurement. • The 182.2-D mark is accompanied by the words "Halfway to Hell" and an arrow pointing towards F.Tuesday 16 August 2011

The game is especially popular with American children and is frequently played as a party game or as a pastime. • X was invented in 1953 by Leonard Stern and Roger Price, who published the first X book themselves in 1958. It resembles the earlier games of Consequences and Exquisite Corpse. X books are still published by Price Stern Sloan, an imprint of Penguin Group, cofounded by Price and Stern. • The origins of X are as follows :Tuesday 16 August 2011

  217. 217. • Z (June 25, 1908 – December 25, 2000) was an American philosopher and logician in the analytic tradition. From 1930 until his death 70 years later,Z was continuously affiliated with Harvard University in one way or another, first as a student, then as a professor of philosophy and a teacher of mathematics, and finally as a professor emeritus who published or revised several books in retirement. He filled the Edgar Pierce Chair of Philosophy at Harvard from 1956 to 1978. He won the first Schock Prize in Logic and Philosophy in 1993, for "his systematical and penetrating discussions of how learning of language and communication are based on socially available evidence and of the consequences of this for theories on knowledge and linguistic meaning."Tuesday 16 August 2011
  218. 218. • The name "Z1" was coined by A , in his popular science book B, in the honor of philosopher Z (1908–2000), who made an extensive study of indirect self- reference, and in particular for the following paradox-producing expression, known as • "Yields falsehood when preceded by its quotation" yields falsehood when preceded by its quotation.Tuesday 16 August 2011

  220. 220. • All these theories and programs and philosophy find their root/origin/ reason in the following : • The D effect is named after the image on the tins and boxes of D cocoa powder, one of the main Dutch brands, which displayed a nurse carrying a serving tray with a cup of hot chocolate and a box with the same image.This image, introduced in 1904 and maintained for decades with slight variations, became a household notion. Reportedly, poet and columnist Nico Scheepmaker introduced wider usage of the term in the late 1970s. • Another famous use of this is E defined by E1 that, when graphed in two dimensions, can visually reproduce the formula itself(seen above). It is used in various maths and computer science courses as an exercise in graphing formulae.Tuesday 16 August 2011
