Hooray for Friday!
Who’s with me?
Let’s check the videos…
“A time-lapse view of Lake Erie during the lake-effect snow storm of November 18, 2014. This was taken from my office window in the Guaranty Building where I work as an intellectual property attorney at Hodgson Russ”
This made the rounds but it’s maybe the very best example of how “lake effect” snow is formed. Beautiful. Scary.
This is a satirical “lyric video” that was actually edited together by the very talented (and funny) Neil Cicierega.
“This series on Albert Michelson’s Harmonic Analyzer celebrates a nineteenth century mechanical computer that performed Fourier analysis by using gears, springs and levers to calculate with sines and cosines – an astonishing feat in an age before electronic computers.”
For those of you who want an extended look at this device, there is acomplete playlist of several videos that describe several mathematical functions this machine can do. I find it fascinating.
Have a great weekend everybody.
