    I got a 2001 Ninja 636 a while ago, and was looking to get new fairings for it, previous owner dropped it, all cosmetic, kind of want to get her looking good again. I was looking into a site that offered new painted fairings, is this a good idea to do? Also what are the perks of getting a carbon fibre fairing? I saw on their site, that an extra 300 bucks, could get that, is it just for looks or performance. I know my bike's incredibly light compared to others as it is, so not sure how much beneficial it is. Thanks for any advice you can give.

  • Going into the reserves as an officer?

    I had a recruiter ask me to come back to the service as reserves. And I was discussing after finishing my degree, getting a commission. I talked to someone else about this who was in the reserves already, said that the military had a contract, where if you had so many credit hours, you could go in commissioned and had to have the degree degree by the time you would make O-3. On my current route in school, I'll actually probably have a masters before I would be able to put on O-3E, so I would be good in that aspect. Does anyone have any information regarding this program, and how it really works?

    I spent 5 years in the Navy, and over 4 years on a ship through 2 deployments, and it became apparent real quick that without those people besides me, there would never any way that I could have done it. That it was no longer about patriotism as it was about fighting for each other. There was 12 people who died from either my ship or on other ships during this time, and one instance was from a helicopter going down, we spent 3 days searching for these guys, at which I'm pretty sure none of us could sleep, but be outside and doing as much as we can to look. This is how strong our bond was to each other. Now my question is, after thousands of miles traveling, a lot without even shoes, hungry; after 2 long days of fighting at Gettysburg, 3 years into fighting for a split country, . What kept the charge going, how where they that motivated to push forwards when it seemed like a suicide charge? I mean these people where fighting against each other as best friends, fathers and sons, brothers, fellow veterans from years before. If what keeps us together and fighting, is the brotherhood between troops today, what did it back then when they fought each other? Keep in mind I'm writing this as a speech towards Pickett's charge, so any information should relate to that, and please include references you might have gotten the information from.

Another is adding the diagonal and subtracting the reverse + products of the corners. Then of course reducing the matrix. But I see my prof do something that's really quick, and trying to figure out. She multiplies out the diagonal then points to the lower triangle, writes a number, the points to the top writes a number and adds them. What did she do?

I did a loop in hopes to get each core to split up and do part of the loop(s) at once.

I was wondering if it were possible to have/assign each core to do something at the same time as the other cores are also working. To give multitasking more of a literal term?

    Is this book the same thing as his Early Transcendentals, I've skimmed through them and it seems to have the same table of contents and from what I've looked at appendix questions wise is also the same, so I was just curious if both are the exact same books. Was just trying to find out the differences (if there are any) before I get it.
