Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers is one
of the greatest basketball players of all time. In
his rookie season (1996–1997) in the National
Basketball Association (NBA), he was already a star. His
rookie year ended, however, with one of his most famous
failures. It came in Game 5 of a playoff series against
the Utah Jazz. A loss would eliminate the Lakers from the
postseason. With the game winding down, and the win
still up for grabs, Bryant attempted three shots. Each time,
he completely missed the basket. The Lakers lost.
These air balls may have cost the Lakers the game.
All the code examples in this book are coded as Java applets so that they
can be used with Java-enabled Web browsers and published on the Web. At
the time of this writing, the current release of Java is release 1.1.5 with
version 1.2 just appearing as a developer release. Java versions 1.1 and later
add many new features, such as a completely new event model, but many
Web browsers have yet to fully incorporate these new features. Therefore,
the applets in this book are coded to be compatible with the earlier Java
1.0.2 standard so that they work with the widest variety of web browser....
There are hundreds of books explaining how to play golf,
and this book is not one of them. We are concerned here
with the science, rather than the art, of playing golf.
It is quite understandable when people ask—what is
the science of golf?—because it is not immediately obvious.
The reason is that much of what happens in golf is
not seen directly by the players. For example, the impact
of the club on the ball occurs in less than a thousandth of
a second and this is so brief that a proper understanding
of hits and mis-hits has to come from physics. Again, we
cannot see the airfl ow...
With a rending of worn cloth the bosom of the gumbaz came away in Hawkston's hand, and Dirdar, regaining his feet like a bouncing rubber ball, dived straight at the open door, ducking beneath the pawing arm of the big Dutchman, Van Brock. But he tripped over Ortelli's extended leg and fell sprawling, rolling on his back to slash up at the Italian with the curved knife he had snatched from his girdle.
There is a new method of rendering that was recently developed. It is called radiosity.
It does something all the other rendering methods don't do: it figures out the
relationship in the scene of all the objects present. For example, in real life, if you take
a bright colored ball and put it into a white room, the walls of the room are going to
reflect a little bit of color from the ball, making them look a little reddish for example.
This is not possible in raytracing, since it does not bounce rays off of matte objects,
such as a wall.
You can compare the above...
“God damn it, shit kicker, can’t you keep this thing straight?” “If I hear one more mother fucking word out of that aborted fetus you call a face I’m going to tear your balls off and bury them up your ass.” There was a painfully loud grinding sound as the car bounced and shimmied through the endless wasteland. Here and there the landscape was dotted with bits of debris, shredded rubber, cracked slabs of concrete, but by and large the years of harsh sandstorms had washed the area clean....
