First order of business today was Algebra. I learned about base e and natural logarithms. So, base e is the irrational number 2.71828… , and it pops up often with a certain, rather common expression. The expression is 1(1 + (1/2)n(1), or just 1(1 + (1/2)n. As for natural logarithms, they’re logarithms with base e.
Next up, Sociology. I learned about some of the competition and symbiosis between Japanese and U.S. corporations. Interesting thing, they both tried to adopt traits of the other’s corporate structure. However, because of cultural differences, the adaptions had a lot of issues. For example, laying people off wasn’t really a thing in Japanese culture at the beginning.
Finally, English. I finished my research on special effects in film before CGI, and I’ll be beginning my essay shortly. Should be interesting. As for what I learned, turns out some early backgrounds were giant painted glass panels, or if they needed to be animated, they played footage of the background on a screen behind the actors, and filmed both at the same time.
