First order of business today was Algebra. I learned about common logarithms. Basically, any logarithm with base 10 is a common logarithm. That’s it. That’s a common logarithm. I don’t know what else to say.

 

Next up, Sociology. I learned about the interaction of technology and workers. With a lot of technology, workers can do stuff at their jobs besides working, and those things can be important. Stuff like scheduling doctor’s appointments, sorting out groceries, and so forth. However, people can use technology to slack off even further, as you do.

There are also concerns with the fact that the internet is forever. Stuff you post online might cost you a job one day.

 

Finally, Programming? Well, everything is done for programming! So we’re doing more English! Interesting thing I learned, different people have different levels of immersion in something. Researchers have found that people have an “absorption trait”, which means that they’re quicker to be drawn in and fascinated by something. Some people also willingly suspend their disbelief, in order to be immersed.
