Humble Pi

Mathematics doesn't have good 'people skills', but we would all be better off, he argues, if we saw it as a practical ally. This book shows how, by making maths our friend, we can learn from its pitfalls.

**The First Ever Maths Book to be a No.1 Bestseller** 'Wonderful ... superb' Daily Mail What makes a bridge wobble when it's not meant to? Billions of dollars mysteriously vanish into thin air? A building rock when its resonant frequency matches a gym class leaping to Snap's 1990 hit I've Got The Power? The answer is maths. Or, to be precise, what happens when maths goes wrong in the real world. As Matt Parker shows us, our modern lives are built on maths: computer programmes, finance, engineering. And most of the time this maths works quietly behind the scenes, until ... it doesn't. Exploring and explaining a litany of glitches, near-misses and mishaps involving the internet, big data, elections, street signs, lotteries, the Roman empire and a hapless Olympic shooting team, Matt Parker shows us the bizarre ways maths trips us up, and what this reveals about its essential place in our world. Mathematics doesn't have good 'people skills', but we would all be better off, he argues, if we saw it as a practical ally. This book shows how, by making maths our friend, we can learn from its pitfalls. It also contains puzzles, challenges, geometric socks, jokes about binary code and three deliberate mistakes. Getting it wrong has never been more fun.

Education professor Smith asks why students are required to take so many math courses, especially at the high school level, and why math skills are given such great weight on admissions exams. He favors less, and he challenges some closely held beliefs, among them the idea that the ability to solve math problems is inextricably linked to logical reasoning ability--that people who are mathematically sophisticated are better able to discern logical flaws.

The world is going through a divine eclipse known as COVID-19 that started in China and has since spread around the globe. Have you wondered about the meaning of this unusual event? God has an answer. He downloaded this over 130,000 words message to me in a month! The sheer size of the message and my ability to write it down within such a short time is itself a miracle. The download started on pi day, 3/14/2020. The message is itself based on the pi verse, John 3:14: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,” John 3:14 NKJV. This COVID-19 quarantine is to humble us so we look up at the ultimate Humble Pi (e): Jesus Christ. The prophecy of COVID-19 is our final warning to seek salvation through Jesus before He comes back again as King of kings; AND it’s another pi verse! “Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7 NKJV. COVID-19 is just the initial birth pains of the Second Coming. COVID-19 came as a forewarning because the world is caught up in a Satanic system that’s now ripe for the arrival of the antiChrist. This global system rules over our lives from religion, politics, economics, culture and art. Read this book to see how COVID-19 came to eclipse and expose this system, and to learn how to escape the snare of the antiChrist system. Read to learn hidden knowledge exposed here FOR THE FIRST TIME by use of secret codes hidden in the divine meaning of Biblical numbers and names. This book will turn your understanding of the world as you know it upside-down, and you will realize that we have been living a lie. COVID-19 is for the revealing of Second Elijah. It is he who writes these words. He’s come to fulfil Malachi 4:5-6: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” This book is for the salvation of souls, and the world. It is God's first sickle swipe in His harvest of souls before "the dreadful day of the LORD." Read it and pass on to your family and friends.

God has an answer. He downloaded this over 300,000 words between March and July 2020, and I’ve split into 4 books. The sheer size of the message and my ability to write it down within such a short time is itself a miracle. The download started on pi day, 3/14/2020.

Gleichgultig war Amerika den Deutschen nie. Die USA galten als Inbegriff des "wohlwollenden Hegemons" und waren Aufhanger von zahlreichen Feindbildern. Sie wurden als kulturelle Fremdlinge bewundert oder verdammt. Aber leidenschaftslos oder statisch waren die deutschen Perspektiven kaum. Historiker, Politikwissenschaftler, Amerikanisten, Sozial- und Literaturwissenschaftler zeigen in diesem Band, dass die USA oft zugleich Freund, Feind und fremd waren. Austausch, Anpassung und Ablehnung existierten in Deutschland nicht selten nebeneinander. Die versammelten Blicke auf die USA reichen von romantischen Amerikabildern der Nachkriegszeit uber Amerikanisierung und Antiamerikanismus der 1970er- und 1980er-Jahre bis hin zu den Anschlagen vom 11. September 2001 und die jungste Vergangenheit.
