Calculus: Limits of Functions (Part 2 of x)

Preface
This series is aimed at providing tools for an electrical engineer to analyze data and solve problems in design. The focus is on applying calculus to equations or physical systems.

Introduction
This article will introduce limits.

There are many calculus references, the one I like to use is Calculus by Larson, Edwards and Hostetler.

This also assumes you are familiar with Python or can stumble your way through it.

Multi Party System

The American 2 party system is long due for a replacement. Something that allows voice, change and something other than the words "Democrat" and "Republican" which essentially have become fairly vague and meaningless.

But I love enjoy the drama and the process of electing US Presidents. I don't consider it a handicap that we have a long time to get to know the candidates.

But I have thought of a system that would fix our election system while keeping the best parts. As it turns out it is almost exactly like the European systems I've seen:

Film Reviews

I don't study film theory or anything of that sort but I like to watch films fairly critically. There has always been several things that stick out to me, like shot length, lighting and editing. Those are my favorite things. Except awesome displays of force, cool sci-fi stuff and amazing dialogue. A masterpiece takes hitting everything just right without major flaws. But I don't like writing off a film entirely for one major flaw, even if it is dialogue or plot, as painful as those two are when missing. Instead I try to look for what a film does right.

Rugged Watch Criteria

Watches are jewelry and as a result there is a wide variation both in price and quality. I'd love to perform a study and scatter map price and quality. The most you could hope for is a straight line: higher price results in higher quality. But in reality I think what you'd end up with is a cloud with very little statistical correlation. Even if you were able to normalize for precious metals or technologies that lend themselves to aesthetics rather than robustness I don't think if would make much of a difference.

Is pain a spandrel?

Is pain an evolutionary evolved feature?

I can see the usefulness of a warning system that allows injury to be detected, mitigated and protected so the body can repair.

And for that it is very effective: any injury to the skin or flesh wounds are detectable, can be protected and will eventually heal.

2017 Architectonic

I wrote the original architectonic to structure and order the entirety of my philosophical beliefs. There is also have a grander goal of structuring and ordering the entirety of philosophical thought by encapsulating every thought concept into an outline. An architectonic. It's not easy, there are a lot of concepts that are similar or overlap and for every positive concept there is also a negative concept that might be left out of an outline like this.

Starting to See it

Character Flaws:
- Bigotry: business as usual
- Racism: business as usual

International Issues:
- Middle East: democrats seen as weak on ISIS
- Russia: democrats/republicans seen as obstinate on Russia
- NATO: staunch supporters of NATO, a broken organization
- Border Control: the northern migration seen as disregard for law with no attempt to uphold the law

Modern AVR Topology

A lot of discussion in the hobbiest forums on the correct implementation of AVR firmware after it was discovered that the maker of my AVR might have completely botched the implementation of their mixer software, the result being that equalizers end up being applied to the wrong channels and that some channels are set to the wrong volume level or sometimes don't even work.

Correcting A Broken Google Play Games Installation

Some time ago I had some kind of error or corruption will my Google Play Games on my Shield TV console. Any time I chose to log into google games the system would log in but then the game could not detect the log in. It was odd and I knew the issue was probably a local error. Here's how I fixed it:

First google requires a couple pre-requisites:

  1. A google account
  2. A google+ account

Steps to fix the error:
