piano juggler

All he’s doing is triggering a pre-programmed MIDI sequence. If you look closely, you’ll see that the keyboard doesn’t even have individual keys—only lines painted on a broad touch panel. In other words, it doesn’t make any difference what keys his balls hit; each ball strike triggers the next note in the pre-written MIDI file. All the juggler has to do is worry about the rhythm; the rest is automated.

This is an amazing illusion! By using the power of suggestion, the authors have taken Carmina Barana and entered silly sub-titles. If you read the sub-titles while listening, it truly sounds like they are singing the silly lyrics!

Gupton’s: A great gun shop in Henderson North Carolina

After a long year being assembled, I recently received my first competition rifle completed, a half MOA beauty which I call The Flame, due to Janet’s excellent flaming paint job on the fore-stock:

This beauty is accurate to inches at 1,000 yards in the hands of an expert marksman, but as a neophyte, I'm happy just hitting the target.

As a beginner in long distance rifle competition I’m often in need of expert assistance, and I’d like to thank the nice folks at Gupton’s for their great help!

The folks at Gupton's Guns in Henderson NC are super-friendly and share decades of experience in firearms.

Gupton’s also carries an extensive line of designer ladies handguns, in colors to match any wardrobe.

For any gun needs in Henderson NC, Gupton’s is the place to be.

Jennifer A. Burleson gives UNM MBA graduation speech!

With greater than a straight A grade point average, Jennifer Burleson was chosen over hundreds of other graduate students to give the graduation class address for her MBA this Spring, from the University of New Mexico, Anderson School of management:

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome. Graduation is an important time for us, and as MBA class speaker, I would like to start by recognizing all those who are here to support us: the families, friends, and of course everyone from the Anderson School of Management. Your support and encouragement throughout this process have been key to our success, and for that we thank you.

To the class of 2012, I would like to talk to you about three things: motivation, dedication, and passion. I believe that the drive to get an MBA requires all three, and without a doubt you all represent these qualities today. We are all motivated – whether it be to advance our careers, make a better living for ourselves, or to learn as much as we can.

We are all dedicated – dedicated to our education, to our community, and to ourselves. And we all have passion – passion in our education and passion in our lives. These elements are what make exceptional students, and the Anderson School of Management has been an exceptional place for us to learn.

We have been challenged, encouraged, and pushed to think outside the box. We have spent long days and nights working on group projects and studying for exams. It reminds me of what I was told when I first got into graduate school: “Study, sleep, or friends. Choose two.” I hope that none of you have had to go to this extreme, but I’m willing to bet that each and every one of us has had to make some adjustments in order to get where we are today.

Perhaps you had to learn to live off of five hours of sleep each night, or had to give up some time with friends in order to study for an exam. Whatever your unique situation, you should realize that any sacrifices you’ve had to make represent a deep commitment to your education; a commitment that should be acknowledged and commended by each and every one of us.

I ask you to now reflect on your own time at Anderson. Think of where you were a couple of years ago and think of where you are today. For me, my time at Anderson starts at the new student orientation back in 2010. I was nervous, unfamiliar with UNM, but eager to begin my studies. I sat at a table with five other ambitious students, all expressing the same enthusiasm that I was feeling. This was the start of four very busy, but very rewarding semesters at Anderson.

In just these two short years, so much has changed, and I can see these changes in myself and in my fellow classmates. We have grown as individuals, both personally and professionally. In my own experience, I feel that my time here has helped me learn more about my strengths and weaknesses, and has helped me develop the skills that I feel I need to become a valued member of any organization.

Of course, your own experiences here may be very different than mine, but I bet that we can all agree that our time at Anderson has helped us gain the knowledge and confidence that we need to succeed in management.

So whether your career path is already mapped out or is still uncertain, proceed with confidence knowing that you received an excellent education from an excellent institution. I encourage you to never stop learning, and remember to stay motivated, dedicated, and passionate in whatever you do. Congratulations to the class of 2012, and best of luck to you in your future careers.

Sandia Labs develops intelligent bullet

I've read that the 50 caliber rifles are legal to own, but difficult to shoot because of their one-mile range.

I'm told that the 50 caliber Barrett rifles are painful to shoot (you can taste blood in your mouth from the shock wave!), and the bullets cost $7 each, too pricey to family use:

To make the trip for distances over one mile, special powders are neded to get to 2,700 fps and you need to fill the shell with no airspace, the bullet resting on the powder.

Sandia Labs has announced a guided missle in 50 caliber!

Note that small space for gunpowder that limits muzzle velocity to 2,400 fps.

The four inch bullet has missle fins and is self guided, zeroing-in, based on a fixed laser beam, which is managed by the spotter.

In the two seconds for the bullet to travel a mile, the terrorist may move, but as long as the spotter keeps the beam on the target, this new missle-bullet promises to be accurate to six inches at a half mile.

Hence, this weapon is a two-man operation, but it is remarkable that Sandia has developed a technology that allows a bullet that is rotating at 200,000 RPM to steer itself!

Don’t get eaten by your pet!

Elderly people love their cats and dogs and numerous studies show that the geriatric crowd benefits from having pets.

Pet ownership reduces their blood pressure and it's a win-win for both the old person and the dog.

But beware, if you die alone, Rover will have no qualms about eating you, and the medical team will have to scrape-up your remains with a poooper-scooper:

Don't let this be your final resting place

Today, a surviving spouse will often live alone in the last years of their lives, and singleton geriatrics are commonplace.

Nobody likes to talk about it, but if you die unexpectedly and your dogs has no long term food supply, you can expect to have your body eaten by Fido.

Can you win a job interview?

Far and away, the most notorious job interview questions are from Goggle. I interviewed with Google and I was asked:

How counld you tiosss a fair coin and come up with a way to generate eqial probabilities for entering one of three doors?

Read this Wall Street Journal just published this great article of Google job interview questions.

Check out the last page of the article for detailed question and answers.

The Monty Hall question:

In some Oracle job interviews, questions are designed to see how
well you think about abstract problems. A favorite is the "Monty Hall"

1 - Contestants are shown three doors.

2 - Behind one door is a new car, while the other two doors have a "booby prize" (a goat).

3 - After the contestant picks a door, Monty Hall reveals a door that he knows to contain a goat

4 - Monty then asks the contestant if they should switch doors of stick to their original choice.

To maximize your chances, please choose the correct option:

a) Always stay with your original choice
b) akways switch to thr othert door
c) It makes no difference

Prohibited animal foods

I’m told that here is a old Chinese saying that they will eat anything that swims crawls walks or flys.

In the USA, there are more cases of people being eaten by their pets, then people eating pets:

Many cultures have meat prohibition by species:

- Sacred Cows: Trying ordering beef curry in an Indian Restaurant sometime, it’s great fun!

- No Pork: Pork ain’t kosher, and ordering baby back ribs in Israel is a waste of time!

But in America we have cultural prohibitions against eating certain critters:

- Eating Horses: Horses deserve a special place in human society because they were indispensible to the advancement of humans, and it remains against the law to eat horses in the USA. President O'Bama made a campaign promise to stop horse slaughter for overseas consumption, but it never happened. Horses do not meet USDA standards for meat, and even simple horse drugs like Bute can cause their meat to be toxic and cancer causing.

- Eating companion animals – Dogs and cats are not on the menu by law in many states.

- Rabbit: While legal., there is an ”ick:” factor, and as a child, my parents always told me it was chicken and I never knew the difference.

One reason people don't eat cats is because predators taste nasty

It’s ironic that in many states it is legal to eat your Roadkill.

In Alaska they encourage people to take home a Moose treat and other states now all you to eat “road pizza”.

In some states, eating roadkill is legal, regardless of the species.

Why eat Possum?

I’ve eaten possum, (tastes like chicken) but hey, it's free meat. I server my kids open face sandwitches with possum gravy. My kids used to say "Mo Possum Dad, Mo Possum!".

On TV, some reporter asked a redneck why bother eating possum when you can buy a chicken at the grocery store. He replied:

Possum is free; chicken costs money!

Yummy Possums!

You don’t mind killing posssums because they are just nasty, giant hissing rats . . .
