  1. Typically compression algorithms cannot make use of parallel tasks, it is not easy to make the algorithms highly parallelizeable. In your examples, TAR is not a compression algorithm, and the only algorithm that might be highly parallelizeable is BZIP because it is a block compression algorithm. Each block can be compressed separately, but this would require lots and lots of memory. LZMA does not work in parallel either, when you see 7zip using multiple threads this is because 7zip splits the data stream into 2 different streams that each are compressed with LZMA in a separate thread, so the compression algorithm itself is not paralllel. This splitting only works when the data permits this. <br class="Apple-interchange-newline">
  2. Found this online it should help:<br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 16px; ">IUPAC Rules for Cycloalkane Nomenclature<br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 16px; "><br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 16px; ">1. For a monosubstituted cycloalkane the ring supplies the root name (table above) and the substituent group is named as usual. A location number is unnecessary.<br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 16px; ">2. If the alkyl substituent is large and/or complex, the ring may be named as a substituent group on an alkane.<br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 16px; ">3. If two different substituents are present on the ring, they are listed in alphabetical order, and the first cited substituent is assigned to carbon #1. The numbering of ring carbons then continues in a direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) that affords the second substituent the lower possible location number.<br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 16px; ">4. If several substituents are present on the ring, they are listed in alphabetical order. Location numbers are assigned to the substituents so that one of them is at carbon #1 and the other locations have the lowest possible numbers, counting in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction.<br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 16px; ">5. The name is assembled, listing groups in alphabetical order and giving each group (if there are two or more) a location number. The prefixes di, tri, tetra etc., used to designate several groups of the same kind, are not considered when alphabetizing.
  3. Well it doesn't really matter what you want to say you're studying.. for astrophysics you need a physics degree, for particle physics (quantum level) you need a physics degree. Point is, it doesn't really matter much since you don't specialize in undergraduate.
  4. The problem states that: "Two events occur in an inertial system K as follows: Event 1: x1 = a, t1 = 2a/c Event 2: x2=2a; t2 = 3a/2c In what frame K' will these events appear to occur at the same time? Describe the motion of system K'. "
  5. I did hear a pop and think I may have torn my achilles however I am not sure because ...A way to test for a rupture is to use the Thompson Test.
  6. How much electricity goes to produce I kg of aluminium ? A friend and I were discussing aluminium recycling as a method of energy
  7. I thought that I had read somewhere that using a distance metric that violated the triangle inequality would cause the kernal matrix not be be pos def. Perhaps that was just in regards to using the metric "raw" versus within a kernal (e.g. as the distance within an RBF kernal perhaps?) Frankly, I just don't understand kernals well enough. I don't understand what effect a measure that violates the triangle inequality has on the feature space and I don't understand how such a measure when made into a proper metric "works" in the feature space.
  8. The average syllable/word count is higher than average, as is the sentence length. Tsu Dho Nimh When businesses invoke the "protection of consumers," it's a lot like politicians invoking morality and children - grab your wallet and/or your kid and run for your life.
  9. I would imagine that pharmacology is probably more intellectually satisfying, but pharmacy is better paid... That's my guess as well. My Dad knows someone that's a pharmacist and apparently he started at 57 something an hour, and he doesn't even run his own shop. I know it's "cool" to talk about how money isn't important and you should just do something you enjoy, but I disagree. I think money IS very important and everyone knows it whether they want to admit it or not.
  10. There is more gravitational potential energy in bodies that are separated. You know this. That is why you need to work to climb a hill, as you separate yourself from Earth. Since there is a law of conservation of energy, any change in the GPE must also amount to an opposite change in the kinetic energy. No other energy forms are involved in planetary motion.
