Can someone help me with this circuit problem pls?

A synchronous sequential circuit that has a single serial input x. The output will be a 1 if and only if the sequence 101101 has been received. Identify all overlapping instances of the sequence. Find the following: the minimum state graph, make a near optimum state assignment, design the circuit using JK flip-flops and analyze your design.

Next semester I will ask a new professor at the school for research experience and hope something happens. I wanted to apply for PhD programs for free grad school but seems like I will have to do masters because I might have 0 research like an absolute mongoloid...

I'm designing a simple security system for a special application using a timer and a sensor. If the sensor is tripped before the timer is finished, an electrical current will be supplied. I've been trying to think of something I can add colour to that can be ignited with a small spark and combust quickly and completely (so impossible to replace). It will be contained in a sealed glass jar so there's no potential for a fire.. Does anyone have any suggestions?

whenever it starts snowing, it feels like there's ZERO wind at all, and I can stand outside for minutes in a t shirt.

whenever it feels super cold, there's never snow or rain around.

Does my described trend actually exist, and is there a reason for it? I live in the northeast.

yeah it sucks, but that wasn't my question
Why not leave it?
snow is a good insulator because it traps air, that's why you can live in igloos
Also it can't snow if it gets too cold because then there's not enough moisture in the air for precipitation, the temperature of maximum snowfall is like -5 or -2 °C (thereabouts) ircc
its because snow is a sound insulator, the cold sounds that usually follow cold fronts just get absorbed by the snow, so the "water cooler" effect is handicapped.
the stuff turned into snow because it gave up its heat
that heat warms the air now

Why is the felt experience of consciousness not taken seriously by the scientific community? And especially not psychedelic states of consciousness.

Consciousness is real and can be observed by any sentient being, just as much as atoms and rocks. It's the most important thing for us to understand since it is the first thing we can observe, we epistemologically cannot pierce the vale of consciousness to exert anything outside until we understand it.

>You always make threads with fucking retarded postulations about consciousness trying to sound deep and shit and its always gibberish
Oh and it's not gibberish. I've written gibberish while high before and this is not that. Everything I'm saying is very well reasoned and clear if you understand the terminology.
Its a fucking retarded thread
Where did you get the impression that consciousness is not taken seriously?

You are a grade A++ autist stop shitting the fucking board

Also as an actual real (you), you're factually incorrect. In this thread alone the majority of people responding say that consciousness either does not exist or is an unscientific topic.

I’m being retarded trying to study for finals and can’t determine what Artificial mRNA is in terms of the genetic code. Any help?
Artificial mRNA is mRNA that has been back translated from a protein by putting a special lever on the ribosome so it goes in reverse.

Hey, /sci/

What are some good books (or video lecture series) about the fourth dimension, simulations, or virtual reality (or perhaps a book on how they all relate to each other)?

This is my first time on this board because I'm usually interested in arts and humanities. I hope to use this information to inform my artistic pursuits and so that I can understand the world more clearly.

I've been watching youtube videos on this subject all night and I find it truly fascinating, but I admittedly don't have a very solid foundation in basic maths/sciences.
I would prefer that your recommendations can be understood by the layperson.

>fourth dimension
Instant pop-sci brainlet red flag.
Dude, I already said that I'm not usually into math or science.
My main interest is painting, and I've seen my fair share of people that have no grasp of understanding on fine arts, so I understand how you may feel about my lack of knowledge regarding math and science. I simply hope that you respond with the same sense of understanding that I am giving you.

I've just been watching some videos on it and I find it interesting, so I want to learn more about it.
What does it matter if it's popular science?

No. You want to read big boy books.
Does this book build on Velleman or does it just give a different perspective?

2nd attempt for the Electron "Still Testing" launch is today.
Bump to ensure nobody starts a second thread.

Still over an hour off. Here's where the stream will be:

Updates here:

This is New Zealand / USA smallsat launcher for ~200 kg satellites, about one quarter the size of Falcon 1.
Scrubbed due to wind. No launch today.
hope it works this time

Does anyone from Rocket Lab post in these threads? Curious to hear if working there is as oppressive as people say it is

the most unscientific pop-chart i've seen in a while, anyone that took bio 1 or 2 could understand why this chart doesn't prove anything.
The same ppl that brought us chemtrails, 9/11 and GMO's. Of course the food pyramid is wrong. They're wanting less of us not more. Just another brick in the wall.

Is the set of all dank memes self containing?
Dank is subjective, unless you provide a measurable criterion for dank we cant answer your question
1. Based on some arbitrary level of approval x

2. Changing dank meme to just meme
A set of memes is generally not a meme (and especially not a dank one) so I'd say clearly not.

What does /sci/ like to use for plotting?

I prefer gnuplot and R with ggplot2.
For exploration I always do base plots. Do you use ggplot all the time or just when it has to look nice? Is it as fast and simple as using plot()?
Only when it has to look nice. It's simpler to throw something together in gnuplot and run with it.
I too use ggplot2 and have lately been incorporating ggmap as well.
I like pyplot, but when I'm using R, I just use the base. Ggplot usually looks ugly, tbqhwyf.

You may know 3 languages but your vocabulary is shit compared to mine and your intelligence is slow. YOu're gay too

It's not hard to learn a fucking language (my dad knows 3). Also trade languages and Pidgin exist you brainlet.
I just don't like learning languages. I've tried and speaking them is cool, but being able to swear at your Mexican friends in their language isn't really worth the time and effort.
