    Wonder what he sounds like.

    Like a weedy beta male, but definitely a male voice.

    Is there a formal name for the algebraic trick where -a/(c-b) = a/(c+b)?

    Dr BG

    Is there a formal name for the algebraic trick where -a/(c-b) = a/(c+b)?

    It isn’t. -a/(c-b) = a/(b-c) follows by multiplying top and bottom by -1.

    Put a= 1 = b and c=2. Then your lhs is -1 and your rhs is 1/3. So the equality is false.

  4. DrBeauGan

    Damn. Right the first time.

  5. .

    Let me put it this way:

    -f(x)/1-g(x)

    Is there any manipulation that can make that f(x)/g(x)+1 ???

  6. .

    No.

    I made an error, I am just multiplying one part of an equation by (-1/-1).

    So -f(x)/1-g(x) = f(x)/g(x) -1

    I tried to generalise it too much.

    Simple stuff, it is really too late.

    No. Not for all functions f and g. Proof: put f(x) =1, g(x) = 2, constant functions.

    You can have -f(x)/1-g(x) = f(x)/g(x) – 1. Again, just multiply top and bottom by -1.

    Where does this come from, dot?

  8. DrBeauGan

    Dunno where the final word came from.

  9. DrBeauGan

    Yes it is after midnight here, and my nutritional intake today has consisted of three glasses of red wine in the last hour, which explains my errors. 😊

  10. .

    You can have -f(x)/1-g(x) = f(x)/g(x) – 1.

    Yeah I know, thanks so obvious when I looked over it again, 1.45 am? Time for bed.

  11. DrBeauGan

    Given an equation, always put simple numbers in to check it. The scope for screwing up in Maths is colossal. So you need to have little checks to catch the bludners. You can be absolutely sure there will be some.

  12. JC

    If you use simple numbers

    a/(c-b) = a/(c+b)

    a = 2 , b = 3, c = 4

    -2/ 4-3 = 2/4 +3

    Eliminate the bottom two lines
    And you’re left with
    -2 =2
    Eliminate that line and you’re left with 0. Isn’t the right,as I haven’t done this sort of arithmetic for decades.

  13. JC

    Should be

    -a/(c-b) = a/(c+b)

  14. DrBeauGan

    JC, -2=2 is not true. In fact it’s a wicked lie. You shouldn’t try to deduce anything from it.

    The statement: If 1=2 then Beaugy is God almighty

    is true. I can prove it. I could also prove:

    If 2=-2 then Beaugy is God almighty..

    You don’t want to go there unless you are prepared to fall on your knees and worship me. Which I should find very embarrassing.

  15. JC

    Doc
    In my mind
    -2 =2 isn’t solved though until it’s reduced to the final conclusion, which is zero.

    However, on this only occasion at the Cat I will defer to you. 🙂

    By the way, the other day I asked if you had been to Oxford. It wasn’t my intention to ask if you’d studied there but rather if you’d visited. I was implying that Oxford is like the Haj for academics.

    the RC Church wouldn’t allow females to sing in church

    I don’t think that’s true. Congregational singing was inherited from Judaism. That was a male-female-children everyone affair. When Christian liturgy became more formalised (e.g. with readers, cantors etc) females also sang in church. St Ephrem the Syrian was famous for organising women’s choirs in the fourth century. Women’s singing was suppressed a bit later in various regions in response to a heretical group full of uppity females (I forget which now). When the Catholics split off they kept that prohibition. Orthodox churches do have female chanters – not common, or rather more common in some places than others – but not prohibited either. And at certain feasts (e.g. Easter) the orthodox have male-female choirs in liturgy. Protestants have never prohibited female singing as far as I know (even if they don’t have female singers) except high church Anglicans (which they got from the Catholics) and weirdo sects (who don’t count as Christians), but happy to be corrected.

  18. DrBeauGan

    I’ve visited Oxford, JC. I didn’t see your post asking me or I should have answered.

    No biggie

    We took a tour and it was hugely interesting . The thing I came away with was the influence Catholicism had on the place. Almost all the churches were originally catholic and Rome had a heavy duty influence at the beginning. It started off as training ground for clergy.

    Also, it sounds accurate when people here accuse Cromwell of being the equivalent of an ISIS leader. The prick ordered the books held in the main library to be burned and closed Oxford down. I didn’t know that.

  22. JC

    Burning books at the time was a really big deal, because they were likely to be very unique. It was a very serious act of desiccation.

    Remember tripe?

    Sure do, the way my mamma cooked tripe was to die for and yes I still remember it, I’ve never found the recipe to do it the way mamma did and besides there’d no takers in my house. I have seen it on the menu at Italian restaurants and order it but it’s rarely the same as mamma’s, so I just remember.

    Hahaha. Tonight Hairy got red-carded. He stood his ground against this:

    extract that precedes tonight’s ‘no choice’ menu: first course Broccoli gnocchi, second course, Mushroom oat cake.

    A growing culinary trend right now is to reduce the human ecological footprint. Of this, we approve! In stores, many producers have now begun introducing minced beef mixed with a certain percentage of vegetables along with vegetable sausages, vegan cheese and other alternative vegan creations. Perhaps this will, for many become a small but important first step to going fully vegan. For us it’s a no brainer: We follow the trend through our recognised vegetarian menu. Enjoy O fellow green enthusiast!

    Hairy stood his ground. I would like an alternative, he says, with meat. Red meat, he adds, rubbing salt into the waiter’s wounded expression. I will have to ask the Head Waiter, Sir, came the stifled reply. Soon he came back and placed a red card on Hairy’s side of the table. And you madam? he asked me.

    Oh dear. I was a good little German. I am quite happy with the vegetarian option, I mumbled, fearing the shame of the second red card ready in his hand, as Hairy’s was the only one in the whole restaurant. The waiter smirked at me with a Certainly, Madam. Avoiding da pain of embarrassment eh Lizzie? enquires Hairy as the waiter departs. Enjoy yer mushroom oatcake, he says sitting back in complete satisfaction, barely containing his laughter at the thought of how I don’t much like muesli. His meal arrives and it is blooded beef with gravy, greens and potatoes which he eats with gusto. I chew through my oats taking one for the B team of wimps who give way far too readily.

    Emma Husar on the hunt for source of leaks

    12:00AM AUGUST 16, 201834 COMMENTS

    Federal Labor MP Emma Husar has made a formal complaint to the NSW ALP, demanding an investigation into how a confidential letter including “the most ­malicious and damaging of alle­gations” related to her dealings with former staff was leaked.

    Ms Husar has asked the NSW party’s ombudsman to find out who else, besides herself, might have received copies of a letter sent to her by barrister John ­Whelan on May 16 that set out 44 allegations of staff bullying and other misconduct.

    An investigation will be conducted for the NSW party by its ombudsmen appointed to handle complaints from party members, former senior federal Labor MPs Leo McLeay and Daryl Melham.

    Ms Husar’s supporters say her main purpose is to smoke out the source of the leak to the BuzzFeed website on August 2, which she claims was a deliberate attempt to damage her before Mr Whelan released the findings of an inquiry he was conducting for the NSW ALP.

    Few had access to Mr Whelan’s letter. He delivered it by hand to Adam Searle, a barrister and NSW Labor frontbencher who had been helping Ms Husar, to pass on to her.

    It is accepted Mr ­Whelan and Mr Searle were not responsible for the leak. The letter was not given to Ms Husar’s former staffers and party general ­secretary Kaila Murnain has told colleagues she was not given a copy.

    Senior party sources told The Australian the NSW ALP had “no interest in destroying one of our own”. The party believed the letter was leaked by someone on Ms Husar’s side — possibly without her knowledge — in an attempt to undermine Mr Whelan’s inquiry process. “They detonated this and it turned into a god-awful mess,” one source claimed.

    Ms Husar did not respond to a request for comment. Her backers say the leak, which resulted in Buzzfeed publishing allegations of lewd conduct and sexual harassment in addition to staff bullying claims already made public, was one of the tipping points for Ms Husar’s announcement on Wednesday last week that she would not contest her western Sydney seat of Lindsay at next year’s election.

    When a summary of Mr Whelan’s findings was released two days later, Ms Husar noted she was cleared of the salacious allegations but said she was “gutted” by the willingness of “certain individuals and certain parts of the media” to defame her on “vexatious and unfounded accu­sations” that had caused “much personal, emotional and professional damage”.

    Ms Husar’s complaint has raised questions inside the ALP about whether she is paving the way for legal action against the party.

    Her relationship with the NSW ALP’s head office appears to have seriously deteriorated, especially after a message was relayed to her via Bill Shorten’s office that her departure could be “her way or their way”. Ms Husar believes she retains Mr Shorten’s support, which would be critical if, as some NSW party sources believe, she is reconsidering her decision to bow out.

    ALP head office says it has accepted Ms Husar’s resignation.

    Religious Colorado cake baker is back in the dock

    Jack Phillips is the Christian cake baker from Colorado who had to go all the way to the Supreme Court to avoid being punished after declining to bake a wedding cake for a couple celebrating their gay marriage. To have baked the cake would have violated his strongly held religious beliefs.

    Now, Phillips is back in the dock. He was asked, apparently on the same day the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case arising from his refusal to bake a cake for the gay wedding, to bake one celebrating the birthday and the “transitioning” from male to female of the potential customer. The cake was supposed to include a blue exterior and a pink interior to reflect the person’s transgender identity.

    Phillips declined to create the cake, given his religious conviction that gender is immutable.

    The request was part of a pattern of harassment of Phillips. Reportedly, his bakery has received requests for cakes featuring marijuana use, sexually explicit messages, and Satanic symbols. One solicitation submitted by email asked the cake shop to create a three-tiered white cake depicting Satan licking a functional nine inch dildo.

    Extremist gay rights activists certainly are charming.

    Once again, Phillips may have to go all the way to Supreme Court in search of relief.

    Lefty activists show their immense humanitarian tolerance by persecuting Christians who just want to live and run a business. No wonder Trump is winning.

Laundry goes into another large linen bag that hangs below the lot. Very efficient storage, and you get three more drawers.

    The possession of old style electrical items, like electric kettles, that cannot be remotely controlled by the State will become a thoughtcrime.

    Vegan ‘honey’ is just hypocritical fake food

    THE lurch towards fake foods gets more ludicrous every day.

    And the latest effort has entered the realm of comedy.

    Vegan “honey” is the newest thing to hit the shelves, manufactured by a Byron Bay (of course) company.

    As it is vegan, and despite the name, it doesn’t contain any real honey, as the vegans argue to do so would mean supporting the stealing of honey from bees, and the death of many bees in the production of honey.

    So this company is producing two types of “honey” — one of which contains apple juice concentrate.

    Now, my Year 11 biology teacher would attest that I should never again be allowed into a science lab, but even I know this fundamental fact — apple trees need bees for pollination to produce the apples.

    Queensland police to be quizzed about attitudes toward Muslims
    Chris Clarke, The Courier-Mail

    QUEENSLAND police will be interviewed about their attitudes towards Muslims as part of a major new study examining whether biases against the Islamic community are preventing the reporting of extremism.

    Research shows that Muslim migrants’ trust in police begins to wane after they have lived in Australia for more than seven years.

    This has led to fears that a major Islamic-inspired terrorist attack could occur if the religion’s community members are unwilling to report their concerns to police.

    Griffith University Criminology Professor Kristina Murphy hopes to sit down with dozens of counter terrorism cops and general duties officers in the coming years to figure out how some of them treat Muslims while on the job and why.

    Griffith University Criminology Professor Kristina Murphy hopes to sit down with dozens of counter terrorism cops and general duties officers in the coming years to figure out how some of them treat Muslims while on the job and why.

    It’s never the muslim’s fault, it’s our fault. Actually it is our fault for electing gutless, capitulating pollies.

  79. Its remarkable

    It all is sounding more like a giant conspiracy:
    Malcolm desperately wanted to join the Labor party.
    They were smart enough to know he was an idiot, but determined he could be a ‘useful’ idiot.
    They had a very quiet and earnest talk with him, and determined that the best thing he could do for the Labor party would be to join the Liberal party, and destroy it from within, using whatever means necessary.
    He has followed the script well< knifing anyone who gets in his way time and time again.
    And he does have some brains, and ability to persuade, hence so many fall for his ‘charm’. But really they are also wanting some of the power, so agree to whatever Malcolm wants.
    Just look at how successful he has been in carrying out what Labor could not do:
    Seen the resignation of thousands of Liberal members and draining of the funds within the party.
    Moved almost all policies to the left
    Installed left and greens in the bureaucracy at every opportunity
    Moved with rude haste to get the Paris deal in place
    Sided with every UN decision he could, notably the immigration charter that passes more control of our country to the UN
    Given funds to every green cause going around, while also looking after his mates as evidenced by the gift the GBR Foundation. This required some outside the rules activity, but he is well versed in that.
    He now has the best of all: a green policy on energy that satisfies both his greenness and installs a carbon tax and scheme where he will probably personally benefit from the trading opportunities.
    Destroyed the conservative side of politics, and arranged for the Labor party to win handsomely at the next election.
    His reward from the left and Labor will be long and generous.

    Aboriginal group angrily tees off against proposed golf course

    Subscriber only

    A COMMUNITY group has ripped into a golf course development in southern Tasmania and accused the State Government of dismissing Aboriginal culture for “white people’s privilege”.

    The developers of the proposed 116ha Arm End recreational reserve and golf course on Tuesday revealed a plan to put a 6.8km pipe under the River Derwent and pump recycled water from Blackmans Bay to the South Arm Peninsula.

    The $3.5 million pipe will connect Class B recycled water from TasWater’s Blackmans Bay treatment plant across the river to irrigate South Arm farms and properties – and the Arm End recreation reserve.

    But Aboriginal Heritage Council chairman Rodney Dillon said the golf course would harm Aboriginal heritage and the cultural landscape.

    “White people’s privilege is again overriding Tasmanian Aboriginal heritage,” he said.

    Sanjeev Gupta’s $US1 billion energy project could see SA export electricity
    Cameron England, Giuseppe Tauriello, The Advertiser
    August 15, 2018 10:19pm
    Subscriber only

    A GROWING pipeline of renewable energy projects across the state, including several solar farms, will not only safeguard against blackouts but pave the way for the export of excess electricity interstate, experts say.

    British industrialist Sanjeev Gupta on Wednesday announced a US$1 billion energy plan for the Upper Spencer Gulf.

    It adds to numerous projects, including the $400 million Bungala solar farm under construction near Port Augusta, and the recently announced Solar River Project near Burra.

    There are now close to 30 solar, wind and battery storage projects under construction or in planning phase across the state, with the potential to add more than 6000MW to the grid. That represents more than double the state’s average peak demand of about 3000MW.

    Clean Energy Council energy transformation director Lillian Patterson said the additional supply would reduce power prices and eventually could be exported to the eastern states.

    “All the extra renewable energy projects entering the system are expected to drive down the average household energy bill for South Australians by hundreds of dollars a year by early next decade,” she said.

    “SA has a genuine opportunity to export solar and wind power to other states on Australia’s east coast … a more flexible national grid with better connection between states will allow clean energy to be exported more effectively as the country’s old coal plants continue to close.”

    No. Here is what will safeguard against blackouts in SA…according to the REAL experts.

    Periods of such high penetration of non-synchronous generation present challenges for managing power system security, particularly in relation to maintaining adequate system strength. The strength of the power system can be low during these periods, due to reduced levels of online conventional synchronous generation.

    Until other viable solutions for managing system strength are available through regulatory frameworks, AEMO has established a requirement for a minimum level of synchronous generation to remain online in SA at all times. The minimum level of synchronous generation required to be online increases with the output of non-synchronous generation.

    The Westminster terrorism suspect is an asylum-seeker who was recently granted British citizenship, had been thrown off a university course and suffered a family bereavement.

    Salih Khater, 29, is from Sudan but is believed to have come to Britain in 2010 after working for two years in Libya. He came as a refugee and was granted asylum, sources confirmed.

    Friends in Birmingham, where he lived before allegedly carrying out Tuesday’s attack using a car outside parliament, claimed that Mr Khater, the son of sorghum farmers, was granted British citizenship in the past few weeks. The Home Office is understood to be checking that process.

    Mr Khater was originally arrested on suspicion of terrorist offences and was arrested again on suspicion of attempted murder yesterday.

    He is alleged to have spent 90 minutes driving around the streets of Westminster in his Ford Fiesta before driving into commuters and towards police officers, crashing into cyclists and pedestrians and hitting a security barrier.

    Friends said that he was a Muslim who did not regularly attend mosque and that he had been anxious to travel home to Sudan to visit his sick mother. His father and a brother both died within a month of each other last year.

    Neil Basu, assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said that the matter was being treated as a terrorism case because of the location and the nature of the incident without officially declaring it to have been a terrorist attack.

    Mr Khater is not co-operating with detectives. Sources confirmed that his phone and other material were being examined, but nothing had been found to establish a motive. Police were downloading hard drives last night from an internet cafe, in Sparkbrook, Birmingham, which Mr Khater regularly used.

    Friends from the cafe said that he was an Aston Villa fan and liked watching films, listening to Celine Dion and playing pool. Abrha Tomas, 35, said: “He’s a good person. I’ve known him for about six or seven years. I don’t think it was terrorism. He’s not that kind of person.”

    Mr Khater’s CV, seen by the BBC, confirmed that he had worked in Libya and spent time as a security guard in Nottingham, where he first lived.

    Coventry University confirmed that Mr Khater studied accountancy last year but was thrown out after failing the first year. South City College in Birmingham said he had studied a diploma in science in 2014-17 after attending an English skills course elsewhere.

    Osman Tergo, 39, who knew Mr Khater and his family in Sudan, and lived with him in Nottingham at a raided property, said he “really loved being here in the UK”.

    He added: “I’m very shocked he is involved in this. He moved here to study. He really loved being in the UK. He really likes playing football and English movies. He was religious, like we all are, we are Muslim and speak Arabic, but he never went to mosque when I lived with him.”

    One of Mr Khater’s brothers who lives in Birmingham has spoken to police. Three other brothers and two sisters live in Sudan and the family, originally from Darfur, were said to be shocked at the allegations.

    Mr Khater told members of the Sudanese community that he was travelling to London this week to obtain a visa to visit his homeland, and was driving down on Monday night to avoid an early-morning trip the next day. Police have confirmed that he spent several hours in the Tottenham Court Road area of central London then drove around Westminster and Whitehall for more than 90 minutes before the incident at 7.37am. Three people were injured, including a female cyclist who remains in hospital.

    Friends said that when Mr Kateh arrived in Nottingham he had become an active part of the Sudanese community in the city, frequently playing football for a community team.

    Dr Siddig Omer, an associate professor of engineering at Nottingham university and chairman of the Nottingham African Consortium, said “Everyone is really surprised he has been involved in this incident — he isn’t at all religious. He didn’t go to mosque, maybe sometimes on Friday. There were never any concerns with extremism when he lived here.”

    Dr Mahdi Khair, who played football with Mr Khater, said: “He wasn’t the kind of man who you’d throw the allegation of terrorist attack at. He was so polite and a decent chap.

    “He never got into conflict with any of us at all. He said he worked for a security company and had lost his dad and brother. He always made peace with everybody. He was working very hard. I don’t know why they’re accusing him. Anything could have happened.”

    Other clearances said to be under review are those of Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr. Stay tuned.

    Which means that these people will find it very very difficult to get future employment (ie revolving door govt->consultant->lobbyist->govt) within the Swamp.

    And also destroys their cred as meeja commentators because they (wink, nudge) “know stuff”.
    It also puts dickheads like Brennan at risk of prosecution because there is no way he will quietly discontinue his practice of badgering his former staff into feeding him intel.

    More than 600 birds removed from suburban Ohio home, workers say

    Crews from Columbus Humane and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) found parakeets, cockatiels, finches, Macaws, African grey parrots, Amazon parrots and cockatoos in the 1,000-square-foot home in Clintonville, FOX28 Columbus reported.

    I laughed. Out loud.

    Michelle Noon, a criminologist at RMIT University, said there could be another explanation for why postcodes like Dandenong’s are such hotspots for numberplate thefts: there are more cars.

    “In some of those areas, there’s a slightly higher car ownership than your average Australian suburb,” she said.

    Alternatively, they may be what she calls “suburban CBDs” — major centres with shopping malls, transport hubs and other services that people from surrounding neighbourhoods drive to.

    “It might just be that people are taking their cars there, and because their cars happen to be there, that’s why the numberplates are being stolen.”

    As for the overall increase in thefts, she said there could be an economic reason for the rise in offences across the state.

    ‘Wow, a real blast from the past, noted cyclist Leaping Leo McLeay. I thought he would be dead by now. Once you put a politician on an indexed pension for life they just keep going and going.’

    Wow, indeed!

    A former colleague of mine had previously worked in one of the Parliamentary Departments. where her supervisor had been a completely crazed and dysfunctional old bat.

    The story was that while it was recognised by management that she was a harpy and a liability, she couldn’t be moved because she was allegedly being rooted by Leo, then Speaker of the Reps. The mind, as they say, boggled.

    Leo’s son, Paul, who had accompanied him on his fateful bike ride (through, if memory serves, the leafy Canberra suburb of Deakin) and presumably gave evidence in support of Leo’s compo claim, later became a NSW Labor Minister in one of the many Obeid/Tripodi-confected regimes. but was forced to resign from Cabinet after it emerged he had accessed adult and gaming sites on his Parliamentary computer.

    McCarrick resigned from the College of Cardinals. It took him a full month, as well, for accusations which should have caused him to stand down no more than 24 hours after they went public.

    The Pope stayed absolutely mum. After all, he already had the Chile fiasco on his plate, which he enabled personally by ignoring in the hope that it would go away.

  190. From the Economist:

    The third principle is a belief in “belonging”. Modern liberalism is the philosophy of the airport hotel: liberals believe that nothing should be allowed to interfere in the efficiency-maximising power of free exchange. Conservatism is the philosophy of the comfortable country house; conservatives believe above all in having a place that you can call home. They put a high value on the importance of patriotism because the nation-state is a collection of like-minded people. They have a soft spot for old-fashioned country squires who are the linchpins of local societies. The basic reason why conservatives are worried about free movement of people is that free movement turns society into a nexus of contracts rather than a “homeland” that is occupied by people who share a common history.

    This definition of conservatism points to one of the great oddities of our times: that many people who go by the name of conservatives are anything but. The British Conservative Party—or a dominant faction within it—has pursued its dream of leaving the European Union despite the fact that doing so has involved breaking with 45 years of history, embracing a referendum and throwing the country into turmoil.

    Hang on, what? You’ve just diagnosed the problem conservatives have with the EU. It harms local societies bound by a common history. The EU just is the philosophy of the airport hotel. How can someone be so blind to this salient fact? Further, when you are considering the history of peoples that often exceed a thousand years, what is the significance of 45 years? None at all. This is probably a piece of concern trolling poorly executed, even for the Economist. monty must be writing for them.
