Total solar eclipse

A total solar eclipse "visited" the north of Australia yesterday evening - I watched it live on the internet. 


Panasonic's project , “Filming the sun, using the sun”, captured and broadcast the eclipse to the world using only the power of sunlight. Using Panasonic's high efficiency solar power-generating system, “HIT” to generate power with a portable battery back for power storage, the eclipse was filmed from 2 locations, Port Douglas & Fitzroy Island, and then streamed live to the world.

It really was a quite remarkable display of technology and the power of the internet, and I found it strangely moving - almost spiritual. No wonder our ancestors worshipped the sun.

I captured a few screenshots

Many of the models of calculators are an auto turn off; one who is working has to keep the calculator non-operating for a few seconds to turn it off, and some can be switched off by closing their lid. Some of the calculators are provided with the power off button. The displays of Calculators are liquid crystal displays. Some of the modern calculators are provided with memory cards and make the calculator able to store data. The storage capacity can be increased by putting the memory cards with large storage space. Initially many of the schools allowed their students to use calculators for solving their mathematical problems but many of the parents and teachers opposed this idea of allowing calculator in schools because they thought that the students will then totally rely on calculators. There was an agreement made that the students will be allowed to use the calculators only after when they attain proficiency in solving the sums themselves. After a brief research it was proved that calculator restrict the mathematical thinking power of the children’s and lack mathematical problem solving skills.
