The formula you get it from is cos2 x +sin2 x=1, so it works both ways. Also, to answer your question, that is the most simplified version unless you want to go sin x(1-sin x). Source: Cal II

As for my pen preference, I prefer a mechanical pencil but when I do use a pen, I prefer to the use the Zebra pens that have the same grip as their mechanical pencils.

As who played on 120 and up before the server move, you notice a difference in drop from 120 to 30 but the ping difference from 50 to 20 shouldn't be that bad in actual play. I know many people who have got to gold or plat reasonably easy with high ping. More important than ping in league is knowing range and the mechanics behind all the champs abilities.

Most of the time in league it comes down to the servers, not your side. Where are you based? The main server for North America is in Chicago. However, using ethernet instead of bad wifi can help big time. I get about 33 on ethernet and my dorm wifi, but when I go home, due to bad wifi I get about 50-60.

I've played minecraft, but no, this idea came over a year after I stopped playing it. The potential with a step pyramid is much greater. More support structure, terraced gardening, etc. Biggest problem would be finding a place to build it, since you'd need a gigantic base and it'd be heavier than a glass and steel one, though cheaper, if you built it out of stone from a local quarry.

I don't know much about the steam link, but if you do get one, I suggest getting xbox controllers or ps controllers for it instead of steam controller. I have a steam controller and the support for it is not great. In fallout 4, even the best control mapping you can do for it still leaves it subpar and makes aiming and shooting awkward. Not that it's not capable, but rather not very supported.

You're in luck. The 6700k is having a big price drop, which is unusual for processors. Price especially low if you 're near a microcenter. Also, the price drop on storage for black friday can get you better storage for the same price. Just wait a day or so, then buy fast, because the best price drops will be likely be predictably limited in quantity.

Ah. that's a different thing. A president is the person the nation's kids are supposed to look up to. Also, he really hasn't changed those views about women and what he himself can do. A president is not a simple job and cannot be compared to a simple job. A president is supposed to be a shining light and an example.

But that therein is the problem. Reduced costs come from mass adaptation and the creation of a new industry. Look at kickstarters that were funded and then failed and you will see that problem. We have to create the demand and the best way to do that is by helping the industry really start. Also, you could create specific subsidiaries for the former mining towns to help boost them and the industry. However, going back to fossil fuels and saying screw the energy renewable movement will just undo everything we have done.

You didn't address the other things I mentioned. Primarily that the job of the president is mainly chief diplomat and in terms of bills, all they really do is support or not support them. Also, his policy reduces EPA and we're already ****** in that regard. I kinda want my planet to last more than just my generation, my kid's generation and maybe my grandchildren's. I mean, look up some data on what has happened to the great barrier reef right now. It's getting worse due to the rising temperatures that the sensitive coral can't stand. As well, we have a huge radiation leak from the nuclear plant in Japan that they can't stop. Personally, I think we should be lessening everything else to try and offset that.

And Trump is the definition of what's wrong with our society. I prefer what's wrong with politics. Unless there is a fantastic candidate in 2020, I'm getting my degree and leaving. I can't live in a country that can elect a president so purely focused on nationalism and with such low diplomatic skills FOR OUR CHIEF DIPLOMAT. Also, saying, and I paraphrase here, that you can grab a woman by the vagina and get away with it because you're a celebrity, is like a teacher saying "I can get any student here to give me a BJ" . What would happen to that teacher?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Trump is doing surprisingly well..."

  • 37 months ago

The reason I don't like Trump is not just the fact he's openly sexist, purely nationalistic (except when it comes to his wives, what's up with that?), and has preposterous plans that will never make it through unless the majority of our government is purely radical but the fact that one of the biggest roles of the president is chief diplomat, not passing bills ( which it doesn't seem like a lot of people really think about) , and he is not cut out for that at all, as he has proven by being enraged by almost anything he doesn't like, instead of dealing with it in a mature responsible way. Also, my dad works in construction and hearing how he cheated all those workers out of their money by declaring those bankruptcies on the multi-billion dollar casinos gets to me, even if my dad decided to vote for him. And laughing at something like that help no one. His entire campaign has been fear-mongering, and that's how you create police states and I'm not even happy with the Patriot Act (look it up) . Also, saying it's for lols is like saying "haha those guys didn't think I could get stabbed" while having a knife in your chest.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Star Wars: The New Movies and Disney"

  • 38 months ago

Let me preface this by saying I'm not a diehard Star Wars fan. I certainly like it, just not the hardcore type of fan. Also, it has been quite a while since I've seen most of the movies, with the exception of Episode IV (watched in English class 3 years ago) and The Force Awakens. Personally, I thought The Force Awakens was a good movie, but was too much of a homage to episode IV, in that it did nothing special. I personally think that this is Disney's turn to really develop the films in a new way,which pays homage but also develops on its own. Similarly to how Marvel, while still staying under the DIsney mantle, has developed psychologically intense shows for characters like Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones, I think they need to make a mature underlying plot of their own design. I don't know how they'd develop a more mature plot, while managing to make it clear it's meant for older teens and adults and not kids, or if they could go a different approach by incorporating a more complex plot underneath the one in place, effectively making it captivating for all ages. I think they need to bring in some of the writers for the ever popular Avengers movies and have them give an opinion, as they incorporate complex plots, while also making it captivating for young children. Not sure what to think of Star Wars Rogue based on the trailers.

Actually, even those power users don't hurt them at all. If they did, they'd have serious infrastructure problems and then and only then would they have actual problems. Actually, they already pay ridiculously low prices to provide them after they lay infrastructure and more data barely affects their systems. http://www.theverge.com/smart-home/2015/11/7/9687976/comcast-data-caps-are-not-about-fixing-network-congestion

EDIT: Also, games are getting larger, consoles are using more downloadable games vs disks, video streaming is going 4k, etc. Essentially, they are halting progress by capping as people aren't likely to watch and play in 4k if they can't handle the caps. THAT IS NOT OK.

You forget something. Though he may not follow up on his crazy promises, part of the job of the president is chief diplomat. Trump could not do that, as he feels personally attacked over everything and attacks the person he believes has wronged him, even if they haven't.
