Post Boring Stuff Here... Like Schoolwork :P

I like to post essays and crap and I would actually like to read others' "boring" work like career and school-related stuff. Don't ask. Just do it.

Needs tarting up with some Ye Olde Fontes of Olden Dayes


Come, seeling night,
Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day,
And with thy bloody and invisible hand
Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond
Which keeps me pale! Light thickens, and the crow
Makes wing to th’ rooky wood;
Good things of the day begin to droop and drowse,
Whilse night’s black agents to their preys do rouse.


...and slip in a non-genuine verse somewhere

And keepeth self calm and carry on

Abstract


This study reformulates the community-unit and individualistic concepts of plant communities as hypotheses concerning the distribution of species’ boundaries along a gradient. These hypotheses are tested by an analysis of deviance on data derived from a direct-gradient analysis of a freshwater marsh plant community in Breckenridge, Quebec, Canada. Boundaries are clustered at certain intervals along the gradient (p < 0.001), contradicting the individualistic hypothesis. Upper boundaries are not consistently clustered at the same intervals as lower boundaries (p < 0.001), contradicting the community-unit hypothesis. Thus, neither of the two usual models of community structure explain the patterns found in Breckenridge Marsh, suggesting that the historical dichotomy is too limited. Hypotheses of pattern should be tested using inferential statistics. Hypotheses of mechanism should be tested by experimentation. The way out of the community-unit vs. individualistic community debate is to deny the dichotomy and to consider multiple working hypotheses of community structure.

I'm trying to work on some code for a computer class.
Need to have it take user input, load the file of their choice, display contents (thats the part I want to do), and arrange the contents in alphabetical order.

No more programming after this class

I'm in Biology learning about Archaea organisms. Which are microscopic organisms who live in places other organisms can't. For example they can be found in a volcano or extremely cold climates.

I'm just trying to remember this haha I've been in the course for 3 weeks and we are having our midterm next week DX

Alkynes/structure of ethyne (organic chemistry)

The carbon atoms in ethyne are sp hybridised. 1 s-orbital and 1 p-orbital combine to form 2 sp-orbitals. The triple bond itself is formed from the 2 sp hybrid orbitals and the remaining 2 p-orbitals off carbon's valence electrons. One sigma C-C bond results from the overlap of 2 sp-orbitals, and two pi C-C bonds from the intersection between both p-orbitals from each carbon. The triple bond disallows any rotation about it, thus the molecule is linear in shape and no geometric isomerism is possible.

C-C triple bond length = 1.2 angstroms
C-H bond length = 1.06 angstroms

What's the difference between "make the most out of an opportunity" or "make the most of an opportunity"? Are they both formal enough to be in an application letter?

Take a gander at a real programming assignment:bigsmile::


I had to design and code that (meaning I made that diagram and wrote code to implement it based on the assignment). The actual code I wrote is a mess of template-heavy C++ spread over 8 source files. I can post that, if anyone wants some really boring stuff.

They both convey the same meaning, but I think "make the most of an opportunity" sounds better. I doubt whoever is reading the letter would be that picky anyway.

He therefore advised me to look for a reliable,trust worthy and God-fearing person who will assist me to transfer this funds abroad strictly for a good investment purposes,this is because he did not want his associates to raise an eyebrow on his funds.He also advised me to avoid his associates who will be running after my dear life,he finally died in the hospital after two days of admission.I am soliciting for your assistance to transfer the $4.8m into your account for an investment purposes in your country.I hope to travel with you to your country after a successful transfer of this funds.The contact of the bank will be given to you as soon as you show your interest and willingness to me.You can now instruct them on where and how the money will be transferred.I am offering you 10% of the total sum of $4.800,000.00 as commission for your assistance to the transfer of this funds into your country.May i strongly re-emphasize that this transaction is highly confidential,hitch fr ee and this will be successfully

I have to do a report on variation of invertebrates from leaf litter samples from various locations. I really don't want to do it :(
