More Accurate World Map Wins Prestigious Design Award聽
The AuthaGraph map is the most accurate map you'll ever see. You probably won't like it.
You probably don鈥檛 realize it, but virtually every world map you鈥檝e ever seen is wrong. And while the new AuthaGraph World Map may look strange, it is in fact the most accurate map you鈥檝e ever seen.聽
The world maps we鈥檙e all used to operate off of the Mercator projection, a cartographic technique developed by Flemish geographer Gerardus Mercator in 1569. This imperfect technique gave us a map that was 鈥渞ight side up,鈥 orderly, and useful for ship navigation (because it kept longitudes consistent and the angle from any point to the North Pole constant) 鈥 but also one that distorted both the size of many landmasses and the distances between them.
To correct these distortions, Tokyo-based architect and artist Hajime Narukawa created the AuthaGraph map over the course of several years using a complex process that essentially amounts to taking the globe (more accurate than any Mercator map) and flattening it out...

When discussing the life of Ada Lovelace, folks often mention that Ada鈥檚 mother made a point of educating her in mathematics and science in an effort to prevent her from turning out like her father, Lord Byron; it鈥檚 this upbringing which eventually lead to Lovelace鈥檚 pioneering work in computer science.
What folks don鈥檛 often mention is that after inventing computer programming, Lovelace went on to build a career using her newly devised mathematical theories to cheat at gambling, eventually ending up hilariously in debt as a result.
In other words, not only did her mathematical education fail to prevent her from following in her father鈥檚 footsteps, it only made her stronger.

some things i鈥檝e learned while studying in quarantine
drink more water instead of more coffee.
weekly goals are bullshit. set yourself 3-day goals. you鈥檒l be less laid-back.
don鈥檛 just mindlessly stare at words. before you start studying, know your approach to it. have a plan.
summarizing the concept in your own words is the key part of taking notes. don鈥檛 just copy things down, convert them into your own way of talking, your own vocabulary, no matter how dumb and unprofessional it sounds.
don鈥檛 let the 鈥渟tudyblr aesthetic鈥 fool you. studying doesn鈥檛 have to be pretty. summaries and notes can be messy as long as they鈥檙e聽comprehensible. you can always rewrite and reorganize them later. (honestly, you better do. and you better keep them.)
don鈥檛 throw away the papers you鈥檝e solved your problems in. staple them to the fucking textbook. you need to see them constantly. cause you鈥檒l need reminders of how far you鈥檝e came, when you鈥檙e feeling discouraged.
don鈥檛 be an armchair analyst for your issues. if you have an idea then act on it.
remember: the exact point where it becomes difficult, is where your growth begins. take a deep breath, and try to focus on the paragraph in front of you.
get off your high horse and understand that if you鈥檙e a zero, you won鈥檛 go to 100 in a couple of days. first, you鈥檒l need to reach 30, then from 30 to 60, and then from 60 to 90. nobody is 100 everyday. that happens very rarely.
you need to have fun everyday. you need to have peaceful time every single day. even on exam night. especially on exam night, actually. so make sure you鈥檝e studied enough so you can have some time to yourself.
once you鈥檙e on a roll and in need of some challenge to stay on track, start writing down your studying hours. tell yourself you鈥檙e not allowed to do less than 80% of what you did yesterday. whatever the hell it was, even just one hour. so if yesterday you really studied for like, say 8 hours, today your goal is to study for at least 6 and a half hours. if you can鈥檛 keep up with that, make it 70%, or 60%.聽
be forgiving of yourself. be kind to yourself. even if you bounced back and lost your streak. start again. as slowly as you did before. take your time. it鈥檚 okay, you were there once you can get there again.

Quote
First Shakespeare sonnets seem meaningless; first Bach fugues, a bore; first differential equations, sheer torture. But training changes the nature of our spiritual experiences. In due course, contact with an obscurely beautiful poem, an elaborate piece of counterpoint or of mathematical reasoning, causes us to feel direct intuitions of beauty and significance. It is the same in the moral world.
Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) English novelist, essayist and critic

I just hit 100 followers, and I am truly grateful for all of you.
I would like to do a challenge.
For every interaction this post gets (from ANYONE) I will pick up 1 item of trash.
The earth has done so much for us, and I can鈥檛 think of a better way to give back
