Azita: Scatter brain

"The Scissor Girls took a cue from the gods in the No New York Pantheon, then twisted their barbed-wire deconstructivism into the corpse of their elders' art. Music For Scattered Brains provides more irrefutable proof of Azita's distinctive vision, both sonically and visually."

ON THE ORIGIN OF THE ROTATION OF GALAXIES

Dr. Azita Valinia
LHEA, NRC

Understanding how galaxies form and how they acquire rotation are some of the fundamental challenges of astrophysics today. After briefly reviewing possible scenarios for the origin of the rotation of galaxies, I focus on the hydrodynamical mechanism.

Paper: Modular Decomposition in Visuomotor Learning

"The principle of `divide-and-conquer,' the decomposition of a complex task into simpler subtasks each learned by a separate module, has been proposed as a computational strategy during learning. We explore the possibility that the human motor system uses such a modular decomposition strategy to learn the visuomotor map, the relationship between visual inputs and motor outputs."

Turn any web site backwards

From: Karim Ardalan <karim@misinc.net>

Do you want to see any web site backwards? Type in this URL and just add the URL of the site you want to see after the '=' sign.

http://smeg.com/backwards/b3.cgi?url=

For example to see CNN's site backwards goto:

http://smeg.com/backwards/b3.cgi?url=http://www.cnn.com

Like a lot of things on the web it is totally useless, but hey...
