Electromagnetic safety.   Applications include wireless communication systems, high speed digital circuits, electromagnetic sensors, and bioelectromagnetics.



The microServ3r will apparently include two Ethernet ports and a Fibre Channel port. It will also sport HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs, four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, and two eSATA ports, or so the video (embedded later below) suggests.


Xi3 Corporation Announces Its ChromiumPC Modular Computer – the World’s First Desktop Computer Running Google’s Chrome Operating System

The Xi3 Computer Architecture is designed to support any x86-based operating system, including Windows, Linux, Unix, and other open source-based operating systems,” said Jason A. Sullivan, president and CEO of Xi3 Corp. “Although we’ve been promoting, discussing and working on modular computers for some time, we feel the market is now ready for a desktop computer with a cloud-based operating system like the one offered by Google. If someone chooses to switch their ChromiumPC to run a different operating system, it’s as easy as swapping out one of the three boards inside the computer. Top University video lectures on YouTube

Study skills



  1. Collect notes for each course in one place, in a separate notebook or section of a notebook.
  2. Write notes on one side of the page only.
  3. Use a loose-leaf notebook rather than a notebook with a permanent binding. See the pattern of a lecture by spreading out the pages.
  4. Write name and date of the class on the first sheet for each lecture.
  5. Use 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper for your notes. This size will allow you to indent and see the structure of your notes.
  6. Do not perform manual activities which will detract from taking notes. Do not doodle or play with your pen. These activities break eye contact and concentration.
  7. Enter your notes legibly because it saves time. Make them clear.
  8. Use abbreviations.
  9. Box assignments and suggested books so you can identify them quickly.
  10. Mark ideas which the lecture emphasizes with an arrow or some special symbol.
  11. Pay close attention to transitional words, phrases, and sentence which signal the end of one idea and the beginning of another. Listen for words such as “therefore”, “finally”, and “furthermore.” They usually signal an important idea.
  12. Take down examples and sketches which the lecturer presents. Indicate examples with “EX.”
  13. Review your notes as soon as possible. Read through the notes and improve the organization if necessary.
  14. Listening and note taking are SKILLS. The more you practice these techniques, the more skilled you will become. REALLY TRY TO USE AND IMPROVE THESE SKILLS. Soon you will be able to record the fastest lecturer to your satisfaction.
