Photography is a technique of producing permanent images on sensitized
Photography is a technique of producing permanent images on sensitized surfaces by means of the photochemical action of light or other forms of radiant energy. In today's society, photography plays important roles as an information medium, as a tool in science and technology, and as an art form, and it is also a popular hobby. It is essential at every level of business and industry, being used in advertising, documentation, photojournalism, and many other ways. Scientific research, ranging from

During the wartime, blackouts aided his observatons and allowed him to indentify and classify stars in a new and useful way, and led him to increase and improve Hubble's values for the size and age of the universe (to the great relief of geologists.) He also worked on supernovae and radiostars. Milton Humason :

Artificial Intelligence ABSTRACT Current neural network technology is the most progressive of the artificial intelligence systems today. Applications of neural networks have made the transition from laboratory curiosities to large, successful commercial applications. To enhance the security of automated financial transactions, current technologies in both speech recognition and handwriting recognition are likely ready for mass integration into financial institutions.

Digital photography, which is also called ‘digital imaging’ since it does not involve the use of film started in the sixties. The original development of the technology is at NASA when they required that exploration spacecraft, unable to return to earth, to be capable of sending back pictures of their voyages. The digital camera, like the standard film camera, uses a lens to focus the image on a sensor. The usual film camera depends on a film to capture the image but the digital relies on a sen
The Binary Number System
The Binary Number System
The Binary Number System The binary number system is a system in which numbers are represented as linear combinations of the powers of two. A binary number is a number written in base two. This means that each position in a numeral represents a particular power of two. In the more common decimal system, powers of ten are used. A positive integer is represented in base two by a line of zero’s and one’s.The binary number system is important because of its application and value in computers. Digit

Hexadecimal Notation
Hexadecimal Notation Ninety-nine percent of the data you see in the registry is hexadecimal. Computers use hexadecimal notation instead of decimal for a good reason, which you'll learn in a bit. You must learn how to read and convert hexadecimal numbers to use the registry as an effective tool. And that's the point of this section. Binary and decimal notations don't get along well. You learned decimal notation as a child. In this notation, 734 is 7 x 102 + 3 x 101 + 4 x 100, which is 7 x 100 + 3

While human societies have traditionally been organized according to complex, multi-membered class hierarchies, the demise of feudalism effected by the French Revolu

Mitosis Cells can divide, and in unicellular organisms, this makes more organisms. In multicellular organisms, cell division is used for growth, development, and repair of the organism. Cell division is controlled by DNA, but exact copies of the DNA must be given to the daughter cells (note use of “mother” and “daughter”). Bacteria reproduce by a simple process called binary fission. They have one chromosome which is attached to the cell membrane. This chromosome replicates, then the two copies

Antigone The Greek audience would have been familiar with the story told in Antigone and with the background of the characters. An understanding of Antigone's family and her father's fate helps to put the events of the play in context. Antigone is of the Labdacids, a great but star-crossed family. Her father was Oedipus. Oedipus was born of Laius and Jocasta, the rulers of Thebes, but his parents were warned in prophecy that the boy would grow up to murder his father and marry his mother. A herd

Comparison of BST and AVL Binary Search Tree (BST) is a tree that left item is less than root, right item is greater than root and each sub-tree is it itself a binary search tree. For BST, the first piece of data is the root of the tree. Balancing is not important in BST. On the other hand, AVL tree is alike BST but it is a highly balanced tree, which mean the number of sub-trees on the left almost equal on the right. From the result of program two, we can see the difference between two trees an

Discuss the issues of publishing pictures that have been altered using a computer. Picture and subject manipulations have been a part of photography since it was first invented. But because of computer technology, digital manipulations are relatively easy to accomplish, hard to detect and perhaps more alarming, alter the original image so that checking the authenticity of the picture is impossible. Some critics have predicted that in a few years, images -- whether still or moving -- will not be

It also cuts those immense file download times from the Internet. Wouldn�t it be nice if we could compress all files down to just a few bytes? There is a limit to how much you can compress a file. How random the file is, is the determining factor to how far it can be compressed. If the file is completely r

A common misconception about computers is that they are smarter than humans. Actually, the degree of a computer¹s intelligence depends on the speed of its ignorance. Today¹s complex computers are not really intelligent at all. The intelligence is in the people who design them. Therefore, in order to understand the intelligence of computers, one must first look at the history of computers, the way computers handle information, and, finally, the methods of programming the machines.

Cloning: Is It Right? The biological definition of a clone is an organism that has the same genetic information as another organism or organisms (Cloning, 1997). From this definition and from information about the science behind cloning, my current view on cloning is that it is ethical. This statement ignores information about how we can misuse cloning and what consequences occur when the procedure is unsuccessful. I currently do not think cloning should be used until it is perfected. I doubt

The Evaluation of the Microprocessor. The microprocessor has changed a lot over the years, says (Michael W.

As more competition develops in this $150 billion a year business, power and speed of the microprocessor is expanding at an almost explosive rate. The changes have been most evident over the last decade.

Cells divide for four important reasons; reproduction, growth, repair, and replacement of damaged or worn out cells. Most cells divide at least once during their life cycle and some divide divide dozens of time times before they die. There are three types of cell division. They are binary fission, mitosis, and meiosis. When cell divisio
