    It’s finally time to say “farewell” 

    The topic that I appreciated the most is Determinants. I just felt like it’s the one topic I’d never forget considering it is being used by a bunch of other subjects *ahem* Stat 130 *ahem* and also by bunch of other topics. I just think that it’d be something I could use often and is the most worth taking to heart.

    It’s a “ray of hope” amidst Physics 72, CS 145, Stat 130, CS 199, and CS 180.

    Ravan guys.

    Fourier Transform in Network Signal Processing 

    The Fourier Transform is extensively used in the field of Signal Processing.

    Fourier transform is used to filter signals by removing unnecessary noise. “The impulse in time can be thought of as an infinite sum of sinusoids at every possible frequency and the Fourier transform of the impulse is a constant with respect to frequency thus we can know how a system reacts to every possible frequency[1].” Using this, every signal input can be converted with the noise filtered out and then analyzed.

    Symmetry in Tattoos 

    “Many cultures decorate their bodies with tattoos and many of the designs they use are symmetrical. [1]”

    Symmetry ensures balance and balance in art ensures beauty. This symmetric beauty is useful to ensure an aesthetically pleasing tattoo. Many tattoo artists use symmetry in their designs.

    Down! Set! HUT-HUT! 

    American Football~

    “Sports instructions are based on using vectors. Wide receivers playing American football, for example, might run a route where they run seven yards down the field before turning left 45 degrees and running in that direction. Sports commentary also depends on vectors. Only a few sports have fields with grids [like football], so discussions revolve around the direction and speed of the player. Illustrations of plays in a variety of sports rely on simple vector images as well [1].”

    Vectors are also used to compute the speed and direction a player needs to complete a pass [2].

    My name is Jeff 

    Week 1: Introduce yourself

    What’s your name?
    Hi! I’m Alezon Maxine Valerio, Alezon for short.

    What were your thoughts when you enrolled in this course?
    “Sana naman mapasa ko na ‘to this sem.”

    How comfortable are you with math?
    I feel pretty indifferent with regards to Math. Back in grade school, I was thankful for it being the subject with the least amount of things to memorize but I never particularly liked it. I did well to the point of joining inter school math contests, but it was pretty far from being my favorite subject. When high school came and there were more letters than numbers in equations, my usual ease in solving problems ceased to exist and I was faced with probably the most frustrating subject of all time. I admit it is pretty satisfying when you complete a solution though, so despite the fact that now I find it so difficult, Math still gives me the most fulfilling feeling among any other subjects. I’m truthfully shit at it now what with my Math and Math-related CS grades never going higher than 2.50, but hey, nothing beats the feeling of overcoming something so frustratingly difficult.

    And as a BS CS student, I have to deal with Math all the time like it’s a bratty sibling that annoys and frustrates me constantly, but I have no other choice but to love it and deal with it every single day because it’s sometimes nice and is family. So yeah, I just try not to care so much and ended up feeling indifferent towards Math/Math-related subjects.

    What’s your dominant feeling right now?

    Just like the usual: there is the lingering self-loathing brought upon by the unfortunate events of reality and the anxiety of what tomorrow might bring.
