rockets - is isp all there is to engine efficiency?


is there another measure of efficiency that's thrust/mass flow? or does isp take that into accountspecific impulse (more fully, mass-specific impulse, or impulse per unit mass) is, in fact, equal to the thrust per mass flow per unit of time for a pure rocket. this is because momentum is conserved; momentum of the propellant mass ejected out the engine is exactly opposite to the momentum gained by the rocket.

astrophotography - why do stars appear as circles, not points?


whenever light passes a boundary, it diffracts, or bends, due to the wavelike property of light interacting with that boundary. an aperture in an optical system, typically circular or circle-like, is one such boundary.how light interacts with the aperture is described by the point spread function (psf), or how much and to what degree a point source of light spreads as a result of passing through the optical system. the psf is determined by the geometry of the system (including the shape and size of the aperture; the shape(s) of the lenses; etc.) and the wavelength of light passing through the optical system. the psf is essentially the impulse response of the optical system to an impulse function, a point of light of some unit amount of energy that is infinitesimally narrow or tightly bound






merkel rival vows to fight german election like france’s macron


we need a strong impulse for europe that also stirs up a new enthusiasm for europe, schulz saysberlin: chancellor angela merkel’s social democrat (spd) rival said on saturday he would model his campaign for the sept. 24 federal election on that of emmanuel macron, an outsider who was voted in as french president two weeks ago.martin schulz, trying to regain momentum after a shock election loss in germany’s most populous state of north rhine-westphalia last week, the spd’s third defeat this year, said macron’s win showed a pro-european campaign could work.“i will do exactly the same. we need a strong impulse for europe that also stirs up a new enthusiasm for europe,” he told the frankfurter allgemeine zeitung newspaper.in stark contrast to his opponent in the second round of the...

what stupid thing is trending now?


welcome to the new cracked feature which we are tentatively calling what stupid thing is trending now? the answer, at this moment, is this:at the time of this writing, it's still up.this will probably be a lot less funny if it turns out that, say, our president suffered a stroke while typing that tweet, but whatever. what matters is that we live in miraculous times and the most powerful man in the world is, via the magic of technology, able to transmit his every thought to the entire world without a single barrier. no handlers, no spokespersons, not even the rudimentary impulse control possessed by the average toddler stand in his way. there is no way this ends badly!

how to help children with autism make, and keep, friends


(norlito/istock)matthew rarely was invited to birthday parties or play groups as a young child. on the few occasions he was included, his mother said a prayer and “hoped nothing bad would happen,” she recalls.“crowds overwhelmed him. the noise, the games and toys were too much, and sometimes he’d run to another room and hide. what made social situations even harder was that he struggled with impulse control. and he gets locked on ideas. he was perceived as the different one,” says cat of her now 14-year-old son, who has autism. (cat and matthew are identified by their first names only, to protect their privacy.)though he desperately wanted to make friends, it was difficult for matthew, just as it is for many kids with communication barriers and other challenges that make bondin...






once upon a time, i was a gang member


the issue of youth gun violence takes center stage this weekend at a prevention workshop at shiloh baptist church’s family life center in the district.it could not have come at a better time.our nation’s capital has been afflicted with more than 80 homicides so far this year, most by way of illegal guns brought into the city from east coast states such as maryland and virginia. and guns we have. since 2011, d.c. police have recovered more than 11,000 illegal firearms on our streets — enough firepower to equip entire militias in some countries.we have to look into the whys of it: why get guns? why carry them? why point and pull the trigger?and the all-important questions: how to reduce or eliminate the desire to get a gun? how to control the impulse to use it? and, of course, how to k...






the ‘alternative facts’ epidemic goes way beyond politics


impulse control is unfashionable as well as unpresidential, but perhaps you should resist the urge to trip people who stride briskly down the sidewalk fixated on their phone screens, absorbed in texting and feeling entitled to expect others to make way. new technologies are shaping behaviors and dissolving civilities. in 2005, lynne truss, in her book “talk to the hand: the utter bloody rudeness of the world today, or six good reasons to stay home and bolt the door,” presciently said we were slouching into “an age of social autism” with a “universal eff-off reflex.” long before progress, understood as streaming, brought us binge-watching, she foresaw people entertaining themselves into inanition with portable technologies that enable “limitless self-absorption,” making peop...






this food will stop your brain from wanting to pig out all the time


so we all know nuts are good for us, packed full of protein and good fats they are the food we should be snacking on in-between meals.but more often than not it’s sugar or unhealthy fatty foods that we turn to. and let’s be honest, the “i’ll just have a bit” always ends up turning into a full on binge.but now a new study has suggested that nuts, in particular, the walnut, can stop our cravings.the new york times reports that researchers provided nine obese patients with smoothies made from roughly 14 walnut halves for five days straight while the patient’s brain activity was monitored with an mri.researchers found that when shown images of high-fat foods like cake, a part of the brain that regulates appetite and impulse control — the insula — was activated.they did not see ...






more brain differences seen between girls, boys with adhd


san francisco — girls and boys with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder don’t just behave differently. parts of their brains look different, too. now, researchers can add the cerebellum to that mismatch.for boys, symptoms of the disorder tend to include poor impulse control and disruptive behavior. girls are more likely to have difficulty staying focused on one task. studies show that those behavioral differences are reflected in brain structure.  boys with adhd, for example, are more likely than girls to display abnormalities in premotor and primary motor circuits, pediatric neurologist stewart mostofsky of kennedy krieger institute in baltimore has reported previously.now, mostofsky and colleagues have looked at the cerebellum, which plays a role in coordinating movement. he re...






high-speed problem may be to blame for trolling on social media


it is a problem, growing at high-speed, that affects more australians than gambling addiction and may be to blame for trolling on social media as well as other "deviant" behaviour.about 87 per cent of australians use the internet daily, with most of us logging on more than five times a day and spending an average 10 hours and 24 minutes on our digital devices.  internet addiction can have severe consequences. although most of us use the internet, an increasing number of australians are becoming addicted to the constant availability of stimulus and dopamine-hit of notifications. considered similar in nature to gambling addiction – an impulse control disorder – internet addiction involves substituting real-life relationships and engagement with an online world. "internationall...

fox is always open to new ideas on how to goose digital movie sales, and one of its recent developments has been the "movie of the day" app on ios. starting tomorrow, it will also be available on apple tv, which should provide a fitting home for its rotating selection of content. via the app, prices are usually deeply discounted from their usual purchase prices, to somewhere between $5 - $10 per movie. to go with the new launch, fox has revealed the lineup over the next few days, which will include kingsman: secret service, deadpool and a few others.






before hopping back into bed with your ex, read this


(istock)breakup sex can seem like a perfect solution to a sad situation: you get your sexual needs met by someone who knows you well, and forget about your heartache for a few hours.but i’ve found that breakup sex is usually not worth the momentary indulgence. the last time i did it, a few weeks post-split, i was standing with my ex after a dinner as friends, when we looked at each other and he said, “do you want to come over?” i went with my immediate impulse, because i still missed him. i wasn’t ready to say goodbye.of course, after a few nights of trying to have it both ways — not back together, but too emotionally invested to be casual friends with benefits — we concluded that breakup sex was leaving us in limbo.there’s the rub. breakup sex is probably going to feel good ...






sony's latest e ink tablet comes to the us in june


it's doubtful that you'll see the new digital paper sitting at your local big-box store. you'll likely have to go straight to the source or find a specialized reseller. we've asked sony if it has plans for mainstream sales and will let you know if it has something to add.the $700 price makes this latest model considerably more accessible than the original digital paper, whose $1,100 cost was eye-watering for just about anyone, including pros. still, this definitely isn't an impulse purchase in any field -- you could easily get a more conventional tablet that won't be as easy on the eyes, but should be much more than a one-trick pony.
