    Mark2–Chriscee just makes up all her numbers—it’s similar to the false advertising the right wing did in the last election…

  • Doug Z

    Chriscee–I could attack the GOP just as easy as DNC and be intelligent about it. because their is no difference between the two.

    @Doug…he is a very easy target…as are all liberals.

  • Ratboy

    Hell I can do it too!!! :lol:

    The idea behind the divergence theorem

    Let’s say I have a rigid container filled with some gas. If the gas starts to expand but the container does not expand, what has to happen? Since we assume that the container does not expand (it is rigid) but that the gas is expanding, then gas has to somehow leak out of the container. (Or I suppose the container could burst, but that counts as both gas leaking out of the container and the container expanding.)

    If I go to a gas station and pump air into one of my car’s tires, what has to happen to the air inside the tire? (Assume the tire is rigid and does not expand as I put air inside it.) The air inside of the tire compresses.

    These two examples illustrate the divergence theorem (also called Gauss’s theorem). Recall that if a vector field F represents the flow of a fluid, then the divergence of F represents the expansion or compression of the fluid. The divergence theorem says that the total expansion of the fluid inside some three-dimensional region W equals the total flux of the fluid out of the boundary of W . In math terms, this means the triple integral of divF over the region W is equal to the flux integral (or surface integral) of F over the surface ?W that is the boundary of W (with outward pointing normal):
    ? W divFdV=? ?W F?dS.

    I hope that this makes sense intuitively from the above two examples. In the first example, the gas expanding meant divF>0 everywhere in W , the inside of the container. Therefore, the net flux out of W , ? ?W F?dS , must also be greater than zero, i.e., the gas must leak out through the container walls ?W . In the second example, by pumping air into the tire W , I insisted that the net flux out of the tire, ? ?W F?dS , must be negative (since there was a net flux \textbf{into} the tire, and we are assuming an outward pointing normal). By the divergence theorem, the total expansion inside W , ? W divFdV , must be negative, meaning the air was compressing.

    Notice that the divergence theorem equates a surface integral with a triple integral over the volume inside the surface. In this way, it is analogous to Green’s theorem, which equates a line integral with a double integral over the region inside the curve. Remember that Green’s theorem applies only for closed curves. For the same reason, the divergence theorem applies to the surface integral
    ? S F?dS
    only if the surface S is a closed surface. Just like a closed curve, a closed surface has no boundary. A closed surface has to enclose some region, like the surface that represents a container or a tire. In other words, the surface has to be a boundary of some W (i.e., S=?W ), as described above. You cannot use the divergence theorem to calculate a surface integral over S if S is an open surface, like part of a cone or a paraboloid. If you want to use the divergence theorem to calculate the ice cream flowing out of a cone, you have to include a top to your cone to make your surface a closed surface.

    This just in: Fox Fake News complains about the ground Blue Angels as a result of GOP backed sequester…….

  • d.d.

    A real troll is not going to try to discuss anything.

    They pose as part of a community only to disrupt it. Trolling is anti-social behavior.

    Some of the techniques trolls use to accomplish their objectives are:
    Name-calling and insults

    Ad hominem attacks that try to negate an opinion by alleging negatives about the person supporting it

    Impugning other’s motives

    Emotional rants

    Bullying and harassment

    The traditional definition of trolling includes intent. That is, trolls purposely disrupt forums

    Intentional trolls

    Motivated by political, financial, or ideological gain. For example, political trolls participate in forums run by opponents to disrupt them

    Another way to consider trolling from is Dr. Phil’s viewpoint: Immaturity

  • usa8888

    Rat–I like the article you copied from the Internet. There’s one difference between you and me: I undersatnd everything your article said; and you don’t have the slightest idea what your article said. To go futher from what your article stated, the surface integral with a triple integral over the volume inside the surface is equal to the line integral with a double integral over the region inside the curve. But my question to you is: when do you use one versus the other–your article did not address that. Tell me if you can….

  • dana

    USA8888:: Hmmmm, you obviously do not know the difference between communism and socialism…you still havent given us your credentials to make economic viewpoints or do you just use the new york times…From analyzing the frequency of your postings it seems apparent that your either a trust fund baby or on the public dole, definitely not retired because the wisdom factor is not there…so as your profile becomes unmasked, your credibilty will be revealed…

  • Ratboy

    @ d.d.

    BOGUS!!! BOGUS I SAY!!! BOGUS!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    @ dana

    Keep in mind that we found him after a google search in a cute little blue polo shirt and his daddy’s sunglasses

  • dana

    ratboy::Thats hysterical…how does someone get like that? it is amusing yet sad…he is like the kid that the teacher would never call on and now we are all paying the price…He perceives himself to be smarter than everyone else except those that are smart can sniff out immediately his inability to espouse his own opinion and his lack of intellect…

  • Coffee Steve


    Dude, just exchanged emails with a very good reporter who is now in South Korea, he is 100% convinced that something will happen sooner than later now, a lot of activity on all fronts there now…Stay Tuned

  • Chriscee

    Awww contact CNN if you don’t like their numbers. I merely posted what they found in their polling.

  • Coffee Steve

    Did MSNBC do something to turn off even their own viewers? Even the Rachel Maddow Show has hit bottom. Sorry guys but these numbers continue, it will get serious attention.

    Just asking, but what happened? All of them have slipped but not by those margins.

  • mikey o

    @USA8888 Lets see how smart Obama is release his college records, why not he not running for office again. What is OBama hiding USA8888 in his college records ????? George Bush release his grades and he got better grades than John Kerry did. OH I know George Bush grades are better then Obama and he is embrassed.

  • Dave Sky

    “But my question to you is: when do you use one versus the other–your article did not address that. Tell me if you can….”

    Okay, tell us.

  • mikey o

    @Coffee Steve according to the General on this site when Obama uses his high tech weapons it will be over in and hour and China wont jump in for economic reasons.

    Still waiting for the general to thank Reagan for the missle defense obama will use.

  • AppleStinx

    Coffee Steve asked: “Did MSNBC do something to turn off even their own viewers?”

    Possibly. Chris Matthews praising Margaret Thatcher yesterday may have turned them off – I wonder whether he received any death threats from some of his regular viewers because of that. On the other hand, that could have been considered by them as a “train wreck”, and ratings would be up. :wink:

    Dude, just exchanged emails with a very good reporter who is now in South Korea

    I just emailed a client of mine. Her and her husband are doing govt contract work in S Korea. They bought a house here last fall but have not come back yet to my knowledge so I will see what she has to say.
