Memoir on the Theory of the Articulated Octahedron  [PDF]
Raoul Bricard
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: Mr. C. Stephanos posed the following question in the Interm\'ediaire des Math\'ematiciens: "Do there exist polyhedra with invariant facets that are susceptible to an infinite family of transformations that only alter solid angles and dihedrals?" I announced, in the same Journal, a special concave octahedron possessing the required property. Cauchy, on the other hand, has proved that there do not exist convex polyhedra that are deformable under the prescribed conditions. In this Memoir I propose to extend the above mentioned result, by resolving the problem of Mr. Stephanos in general for octahedra of triangular facets. Following Cauchy's theorem, all the octahedra which I shall establish as deformable will be of necessity concave by virtue of the fact that they possess reentrant dihedrals or, in fact, facets that intercross, in the manner of facets of polyhedra in higher dimensional spaces.
Social media as communicative genres  [cached]
Stine Lomborg
MedieKultur : Journal of Media and Communication Research , 2011,
Abstract: As a focus of study, ‘social media’ tend to lack definitional clarity and grounding in theories of media and text. This paper establishes and discusses a conceptual framework for defining social media as communicative genres, constituted by the interplay between interactive functionalities configured at the software level and the invocation and appropriation of various software functionalities to achieve specific purposes in and through users’ actual communicative practices. I suggest that social media might be seen as particularly dynamic genres, subject to continuous disruption and uncertainty,owing to their deinstitutionalised and participatory character, and the shifting roles of producers and recipients in the networks and conversations that make up social media content.
On the history of photomultiplier tube invention  [PDF]
B. K. Lubsandorzhiev
Physics , 2006, DOI: 10.1016/j.nima.2006.05.221
Abstract: In this very short note we review some historical aspects of photomultiplier tube invention. It is our tribute to the memory of great Soviet-Russian physicist and engineer Leonid Aleksandrovitch Kubetsky whose life and scientific achievements are described briefly. Particular efforts are made to shed light on a controversial issue of who invented the first photomultiplier tube. It is asserted that if to recognize L.A.Kubetsky's priority on the photomultiplier tube invention the last Beaune Conference would be held on the eve of the 75th Anniversary of that great event.
L’invention instrumentale  [cached]
Jacques Dewitte
Methodos : Savoirs et Textes , 2011, DOI: 10.4000/methodos.2518
Abstract: L’instrument de musique n’a pas d’identité déterminée avant qu’il ne soit joué par un musicien concret, ou utilisé dans une uvre singulière. Pour Stravinsky, l’instrument de musique n’est rien en soi . C’est l’ uvre, comme invention et création, qui donne à l’instrument son identité, sur la base de propriétés organologiques préexistantes. Les uvres de Stravinsky pour petite formation illustrent cette idée d’une invention de l’instrument de musique par l’ uvre qu’il joue, ainsi que son amour pour des instruments nouveaux ou nouveaux pour lui (le cymbalum). L’invention instrumentale (qui n’est pas ici création d’un nouvel instrument) consiste à faire sonner de manière neuve un instrument déjà existant. Cette invention suppose une érotique musicale, un amour spécifique pour les instruments et les altérités dont ils sont porteurs. Tout se passe alors comme si un a priori (une possibilité musicale enfouie dans l’instrument A musical instrument has no specific identity until it is played by a concrete musician or used in a singular work. According to Stravinsky, a musical instrument is nothing in itself . Only a work, as a process of invention and creation, gives an instrument its identity on the basis of pre-existing organologic properties. Stravinsky’s works for small ensembles show how musical instruments may be invented by the work which they play, as well as the composer’s love for instruments that are new or “new for him” (such as the cymbalo). Musical invention (which does not mean here the creation of a new instrument) consists in giving a new ring to an existing instrument. This kind of invention implies a notion of musical “eroticism”, that is a specific love for instruments and the otherness they may bear. Everything is happening as though an a priori quality (a musical possibility buried in the instrument) appeared only a posteriori (within the inventive work).
Review of The Invention of Enterprise
Michael E. Marotta
Libertarian Papers , 2011,
Abstract: The Invention of Enterprise: Entrepreneurship from Ancient Mesopotamia to Modern Times, David S. Landes, Joel Mokyr, and William J. Baumol, eds., Princeton University Press, 2010, is a dense anthology that provides an “orbital view” of the history of trade and commerce. The essays encompass several theoretic frameworks while following three themes: the creation of enterprises; the distinctions between creative and corrosive capitalism; and the societies that engender those different modes.
Preservation of Cultural Heritage via Education of Children, Utilizing Visual Communication: Persepolis as a Case Study  [PDF]
Parnaz Goodarzparvari, Francisco Carlos Bueno Camejo
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.92011
Abstract: Focusing on the next generations as the owners of the heritage, development of the educational approach for children is an important issue which would assist the preservation of cultural affairs. Provision of the possibilities by which children can get familiar with their cultural treasures would support the cultural sustaining and maintaining approaches of the society while this chain would deliver the cultural values more effectively. Among several approaches, visual communication as the unique language which can be understood and utilized by every nation has been considered as an educational approach for children to promote their knowledge on the value of cultural heritage. Considering the fame and importance of Persepolis, it has been aimed as case study and different visual communicating procedures have been proposed for education of Persian student on this world heritage, while in some cases, the possibilities and limitations have been discussed.
Why Is Hard To Patent An Invention?
Informatica Economica Journal , 2007,
Abstract: When employed by a company, in almost all the cases a new employee has to sign an agreement giving the company exclusive rights to any intellectual property developed as part of their work assignments. This agreement could extend beyond a change of jobs and cause conflict of interests in new employment situations. A patent is a government-granted monopoly given to an inventor as both a reward for the intellectual and financial investment, and a stimulus to innovate. As a monopoly, the patent has legal power to exclude others from exploiting the invention in any way for a period of 20 years from the time the patent application has been filed. A trademark provides instant recognition of a product or company; a service mark provides instant recognition of a service. They both have unlimited lifetime. But the owner must renew or confirm continuous use at the end of five years, and every 10 years thereafter. A trade secret is information keep secret by the owner to give him advantage over competitors. Since it is secret, a trade secret protection has unlimited lifetime.
On Why the Computer Is Not Even Grade One as an Invention!
Soubhik Chakraborty
Research Journal of Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: This short criticism refers to the editorial comment of 1975 Best Computer papers. The author argues why the computer, which is an invention and not a concept and therefore graded two overall, cannot be grade one even as an invention.
