    They Knew God; For the Wrath of God is Reveal Part 2

    in The Bible

    Notice what Paul says about this wrath:


    "Is being revealed from heaven"--to understand this we must see the parallelism in the language and structure between verse 17 and 18. He said in verse 17 that God's righteousness is being revealed in the Gospel, so in verse 18 we see that God's wrath is also being revealed in the Gospel. Paul's Gospel reveals God's covenant faithfulness, which involves the announcement that God will judge the covenant breakers, and that the agent of this divine judgment is Jesus. Notice what Paul says in Acts 17:


    because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead." Acts 17:31 NASB

    Dr. Sheldon Brown, Parallelism in the Artist's Studio.

    in Education

    Professor Brown combines deep technical expertise in parallelism methodologies and techniques with an artistic vision and that puts him at the forefront of both computer science and the arts. This discussion will revolve around the intersection of computer arts and computer science and it implications for the teaching of computer and computational sciences.

    African Traditional Religions (Understanding World Religions #12)

    in Religion

    Our quote for today is from Desmond Tutu. He said, "God's dream is that you and I and all of us will realize that we are family, that we are made for togetherness, for goodness, and for compassion."


    In this podcast, we are making our way through Garry R. Morgan's book, "Understanding World Religions in 15 Minutes a Day." 


    Our Understanding World Religions topic for today is, "African Traditional Religions" 


    In terms of adherents, the largest animistic family is the African Traditional religions. Africa contains fifty-plus countries and more than one thousand different people groups, each with its own religious variations on the animistic theme. Here, too, generalizations are possible, with exceptions. 


    African Traditional religions have proven exceptionally resilient in the face of modernization. As Christianity and Islam spread across Africa, it was widely predicted that traditional religions would disappear by the end of the twentieth century. On the contrary, though a majority of today's Africans claim to be either Christian or Muslim, traditional religions are widely practiced. Both monotheistic religions face the problem of nominalism (from Latin, meaning "in name only"). Syncretism and parallelism are pervasive.

    Parallelism in the Text: The new edition of Computer Organization and Design.

    in Education

    David Patterson, Pardee Professor of Computer Science at the University of California at Berkeley.

    Professor Patterson's book, "Computer Organization and Design" is arguably the most used text for the computer architecture course taught in every CS curricula. The new addition, with its increased focus on parallelism, as well as the content on GPUs and multithreaded multiprocessors for visual computing and other uses,will bring important changes to teaching and the introduction of parallelism. Join us for a discussion on this topic.

    Computational Sciences and Parallelism

    in Education

    Professor Rubin Landau, Professor Emeritus of Physics, Oregon State University.
    Computer architecture has moved to many cores, the problem sets Scientist are forced to deal with are growing more complex yet the disconnect between computer science and other computational domains in the academy is growing. What can we do to ameliorate this situation? Professor Landau will discuss curriculum based solutions to move towards coherency.

    Dr. Wen-mei Hwu, Strategies for Parallelism and Performance

    in Education

    This talk will revolve around a small set of "common strategies" (tricks) that practitioners use to achieve regular patterns: tiling, data structure padding, data transposition, data binning, locality based layout, hierarchical data structures, and loop transformations.
    These tricks manifest themselves differently in different types of applications and different types of hardware architectures. These strategies complement the "dwarfs" view of the world.
    The tricks often conflict with software engineering practice. I currently cannot see an elegant way of injecting the course into the mainstream undergraduate CS curriculum.
    However, I have a feeling that these tricks cannot be ignored by mainstream CS education for much longer since they are the reality of effective parallel programming.

    Teaching High School students to Think Parallel: Brooklyn Technical High School Follow-up

    in Education

    Just returned from Brooklyn, Intel will share insights on the program to introduce parallelism into the high School curriculum and their take on next steps for industry and academia.

    Intel brought together 15 top notch technical high school students and 6 faculty members from technical high schools in New York City for a 3-day bootcamp to teach parallel programming through real-life experiences and Intel software development tools.
    Scott Apeland, Director, Intel Software Network. & Robert Chesebrough, Course Architect, Intel Innovative Software Education.

    AfRAkan Snake dANKHce: Come get your Number and Code for Renewal

    in Spirituality

    The Physical Universe does everything to mimic the Spiritual Universe. Water and fire must never cross paths. When they do, the fire will pay the price. Wind will run parallel to water, which is why boats with sails will glide on the surface of the oceans.

    The Snake also builds tension by coiling as it moves. The coils form Waves. The peaks and troughs of the Waves form parallels. The snake will uncoil into serial form to move. Again parallels will not meet with serials.

    Similarly, Spirit will not meet with soul, but will live side by side with each other. Therefore rituals are not Spiritual. Ask Credo Mutwa.

    The Dohgon message is: Keep the parallelism in Spirit, while letting your soul express the serialism (surrealism = the concept of juxtaposing elements of contradiction) and cubism. All serial functions are dichotomic. They contradict, and that’s what Credo Mutwa proved.
