SORT BY Relevancy
In this episode, blogger Sacerdotus will speak on the topic "The Universe as a Simulation." Some philosophers and even some physicists believe this may in fact be true. Even Hollywood has touched on the hypothesis via blockbuster movies such as "The Matrix" where humanity is cognitively enslaved in a simulation of the universe.
Are we a "brain in a vat?"
Are we really here or projections on a machine?
Is what we call reality in fact a "Sims game" of sort?
Who made this simulation?
What powers this simulation?
Is this even possible?
Does this prove God exists?
Sacerdotus will touch on these questions and more in this program using philosophy of science paradigms and physics.
The Death of Drawing: Architecture in the Age of Simulation by David Scheer. Published by Routledge, June 2014.
This is a significant book at the time of widespread uncertainty and confusion in architectural theory, education and practice - Juhani Pallasmaa, architect and author of The Eyes of the Skin
In this timely and important study, David Scheer offers a lucid analysis of a dramatic, unprecedented, epistemological shift in architecture and its production - Michael Sorkin, architecture critic, Distinguished Professor of Architecture and Director of the Graduate Program in Urban Design, City College of New York
David Scheer offers a clear and unvarnished assessment of what architects have to lose and gain as we move from representative to simulated experiences, from controlling to collaborative practices, and from Euclidean to parametric/algorithmic form-making - Thomas Fisher, author of Designing to Avoid Disaster, professor of architecture and the Dean of the College of Design, University of Minnesota.

The bay area celebrated the 25th anniversary of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. I was 14 at the time. Had just finished interviewing for a job at the deli in Montgomery Ward in Bayfair Mall.
In this flashback, we relive what it would have been like, if the new early warning system at UC Berkeley, was around at the World Series. The audio is a simulation of the EWS, and what it would have sounded like on that fateful day.
From there to explore the alternate solution to the same sex marriage debate. I have recently been trolled by many a fellow homosexual for not sharing their "me too" position on rights and privileges,
Presidents will be the downfall of democracy, and civility, peace and mashups. But thank Allah we have Benjamin Netanyahu finally coming to his senses and embracing the Palestinians as their bretheren. All is right with the world.
Quantum physics aside, we are living in a simulation. Possibly. Potentially. Well, put it this way: at present, there is no way to prove that it isn't, or that it is. So put that in your pipe and smoke it.
Freedom to connect. Aaron Swartz in a moving speech about how grassroots activism and determination stopped a draconian bill on a fast track to being signed. We have to stop SOPA and all other internet censorship bills they try to slide in unnoticed for the future.
Join Dr. Scott Imlay and Dr. Durrell Rittenberg from Tecplot, Inc. for another informative show. The dramatic growth in computer power has driven an increase in both size and number of CAE simulations used in engineering and scientific analysis. The increase in number of simulation cases has revealed a gap in current post-processing analysis capabilities which were designed to analyze one simulation case at a time. Simulation Analytics software fills this gap. Simulation Analytics is the application of visualization, data management, statistics, and data mining to related collections of datasets generated by computer-aided engineering (CAE) codes. In particular, simulation analytics involves the coupled analysis of the detailed field data and the associated meta-data for a related collection of data-sets. In this talk, Dr. Imlay will discuss the nature of simulation analytics discuss its application to production and exploratory CFD calculations.
Are you managing CFD projects with multiple simulation cases? Then you should consider Tecplot Chorus. It helps scientists and engineers evaluate overall system performance and visually compare simulation cases in a single interface. Find out how Simulation Analytics can help you.
And now Tecplot Chorus has been updated to allow you to:
Manage image views more quickly
Get access to Tecplot Chorus Resources from the Dashboard
Have more flexible data importing
Achieve faster physics exploration and visualization
More easily analyze surrogate models

Join us as we discuss another special radio show where the dead will come back to
do a one night only howdy doody... we also will discuss the paper and whatever
dk or scott feels like talking about today... DUM DUM DUMMMMM!!!!!
So ready up strap in and lets rock and roll... we might even play music if we can
be bothered... :p
Tune in to the next episode of #ACHradio when we'll be discussing the critical role clinical education plays in our culture. Tina Spagnola, RN, Director of Clinical Education will be our guest. She will be describing the extensive program for both new and experienced clinical team members as they join All Children's; as well as, the ongoing support we provide in our state-of-the-art Simulation Laboratory.
You won't want to miss this behind-the-scenes look into the extensive support we provide our team members! Join us Wednesday, October 1st at 12:30 eastern time to learn more!
