And from algebra to astronomy, this resource offers a plethora of free courses on, well, almost anything -- for free. That includes a few video tutorials on Excel. Most of them are part of larger, multi-installment courses on broader topics, like statistics. A general search for " Microsoft Excel " yields what might look like limited results, but they actually explain some fundamental parts of using Excel, like distributions and fitting lines to data. 12) Udemy Price: $15 If you had six hours to spare, how would you use them? "Sleep," "clean the house," and "bake something" are some of the things that come to the top of my mind, but try this on for size -- what if you could become an Excel expert in that amount of time? That's what Udemy promises in its "Microsoft Excel - From Beginner to Expert in 6 Hours" course -- for only $15.

The Drexler limited-slip diff also locks the rear wheels in a more gradual and natural way than the Active M Differential, allowing you to confidently use the throttle to help steer the car. The engine, gearbox and diff make the huge power more approachable, and the communicative chassis helps you anticipate the ACL2’s reactions. But despite the control you have, the car is still overwhelmed by its vast power. That makes it a real challenge to try taming, but as so many of its other attributes are a delight, they make the process of learning the ACL2 a pleasure. Image 4 of 11 Image 4 of 11 Price and rivals The ACL2 is just a one-off and isnt for sale, so there is no actual price. However, AC Schnitzer has given it an estimated value of €149,000. Its ferocious performance, aggressive attitude and fictitious price put it squarely in the sights of other, hardcore, track-focused cars like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the Mercedes-AMG GT R and the BMW M4 GTS.

I sat down and had a think. Upon close examination of where the paper was jamming, it looked like instead of rolling over the fuser (the hot roller that bonds the toner to the paper) and peeling away, it seemed like the paper was sticking to the fuser too long and winding up jammed under the teeth designed to guide it off the fuser. Back to the service manual! I decided to try cooling down the fuser. That would perhaps stop the paper sticking so much and then it would freely pass through to the output rollers. I dialled things down from 170 to 140 degrees. After checking the temperature monitor and confirming the roller temperature was following the settings changes, I successfully made 10 copies in a row with no jams. Success? Perhaps! But if there's one thing I learned in my career as a manufacturing engineer, it's not enough to change a setting and call it fixed.

"I think if you struggle to name me one good prequel movie that exists on the planet, then you probably can't! Generally they're not good for a reason. There's a lot of background mythology peppered into [ Skull Island ] as we create our own new mythology. Really, there are not that many good prequels. As soon as you try and over explain something, it tends to lose its magic. So we're not trying to go in and be like, 'This led to this and this led to this!' We want to still have a wonderful sense of mystery and use it in a way to make our island and our creature and Kong's character feel bigger, because you understand some of it, but we're not trying to pull back the curtain on everything."

Opposing sides in the Syrian war have come face to face in UN peace talks for the first time in three years, as a way out of the deadly conflict remains elusive. Describing the negotiations as an uphill task, the UN's special envoy called for a joint effort. "Let us now keep the interest of Syria and its own people in mind. Work together - I know it's not easy - but let's try to work together, to end this horrible conflict, and lay the foundation for a country at peace with itself, sovereignREAD MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2017/02/24/geneva-peace-talks-looking-for-a-way-out-of-syrian-war What are the top stories today?

A video of "chubby" Siberian tigers taking down a drone, complete with a silly soundtrack like so much viral content is more than what it seems. While the video's been shared far and wide, but the origins of the footage have been a cause for concern for a while now. SEE ALSO: Watch a bunch of chubby tigers take down a drone and try to eat it As science journalist John R. Platt tweeted, the footage is "obviously a tiger farm." Reminder: China has an estimated *7* wild tigers left. Many more in this video = obviously a tiger farm.

A drone operator got a little too close to a group of excited Siberian tigers, and well, a drone looks a whole lot like a really awesome cat toy. According to The Independent , a sanctuary in China's Heilongjiang Province uses drones to help keep their tigers get in shape, though it doesn't seem to be working well because some of the tigers still look a little overweight. (Not that we're tiger fitness experts.) Regardless, the drone flew a bit too low, and one of the tigers makes an impressive leap, knocking the drone out of the sky. The rest of the tigers gather round as one of them starts to chomp on the drone, causing it to emit a thick grey smoke. Don't worry, though, the staff were able to remove the mangled machine before it caused any harm to the animals. Read more... More about Viral Videos , Tech , Tigers , Drones , and Watercooler

My best experiences have been with midsized companies. You'll say to yourself, "Shit, this actually works!" Now you're in the game. I try to get my students in the game as quickly as possible so they know this is for real, and I advise you to do the same. Polishing your design may be satisfying, but it won't help you secure a licensing agreement. Don't overthink it. The licensing process is actually pretty straightforward. It's always made sense to me on a very practical level in that way. If your marketing materials are good, companies will be able to quickly decide if they want to discuss your idea with you further. Yes or no. The challenge really lies in finding the right partner — the perfect match for your concept. The closer you get, the sooner you'll hear back. Remember, companies today are stretched thin as it is. Getting them to do something new is damn near impossible.

Now to be clear, doing the work we do here at CE, we know through years of researching and speaking with insiders that NASA has been upholding a veil of secrecy around the subject of alien life for quite some time and that it wasn't likely they would say anything beyond the very public safe' statements they made. In fact, NASA isn't even at the top of the food chain when it comes to security clearance and what's known about ET happenings in our solar system. It's very likely that the people on the exoplanet panel didn't know much, if anything, about ET life at all. However we thought we'd respectfully try to push the envelope. So we asked: Collective Evolution Media asks: When is NASA going to reveal what is known about ET life? Former defence minister of Canada Hon. Paul Hellyer has said there are at least 4 known ET species communicating with humans.

In one instance, a boy quickly grabbed the “readerrole at his table, but his tablemate told him in Spanish to let someone else try because he had read last time. The tablemate then turned to her group and repeated what she said in English, adding, “We need to practice reading, too.” Heistand wasnt surprised by this behavior. “They're actually used to holding each other accountable for the norms that we have in group discussions,” she said. These are seniors, so they’ve had three years of experience with group work, sharing roles and making sure everyone has the chance to contribute. And, the school has a uniquely supportive culture in part because everyone is learning English and supporting one another through that difficult process. “Every single kid in that room is a language learner,” Kessler said. “And so if somebody is making a mistake with pronunciation or struggling with the word, everybody has been there.

Poincheval was enclosed in the 12 tonne boulder at Paris' modern art museum on Wednesday. He is set to emerge after seven days with the chicks.

[Monta Elkins] got it in his mind that he wanted to try out an old-style speech synthesizer with the SC-01 (or SC-01A) chip , one that uses phonemes to produce speech. After searching online he found a MicroVox text-to-speech synthesizer from the 1980s based around the chip, and after putting together a makeshift serial cable, he connected it up to an Arduino Uno and tried it out. It has that 8-bit artificial voice that many of us remember fondly and is fairly understandable. The SC-01, and then the SC-01A , were made by Votrax International, Inc . In addition to the MicroVox, the SC-01 and SC-01A were used in the Heath Hero robot, the VS-100 synthesizer add-on for TRS-80s, various arcade games such as Qbert and Krull, and in a variety of other products. Its input determines which phonemes to play and where it shines is in producing good transitions between them to come up with decent speech, much better than you'd get if you just play the phonemes one after the other.
