Knowledge/Skill Exchange Comrade 04/23/2020 (Thu) 10:50:52 No. 1291
Here we post our fields of expertise, in hopes to share the knowledge with our fellow comrades. Ask any questions to comrades in this thread regarding their skills, and post your own. Maybe we can create a chat eventually to teach things at a more in depth level. Me: Native English speaker, very good at math, okay at similar sciences, and computer science, can help with music regarding drums/guitar/songwriting etc. I'm particularly interested in learning Chinese (Mandarin), I've just started learning some basics, if anyone has any advice or resources for learning that would be great.
https://mega.nz/#F!l4FHkD4J!zUFsx5UIIOX7OspNuikSmw That’s pimsleur it’s really great for learning spoken Mandarin and just about any other language tbh https://mega.nz/#F!x4VG3DRL!lqecF4q2ywojGLE0O8cu4A And these are a bunch of language learning books. I am a native English and Spanish speaker and i’m currently learning to code because Harvard is offering some free courses through Edx. https://online-learning.harvard.edu/
Me: Native german speaker (also understand english and franch), relativly good at chemistry and catholic theology. I'm learning spanish and computer architecture at the moment. My questions are: are there any tricks to get better at spanish? Why are the Huntingtons axioms still called axioms when we can proof them with truth tables? I don't now much about math but I assume axioms are just taken to be true and can't be proofen.
>>1294 My understand is that it's not that you can *prove* the axiom with a truth table, the nature of Huntington's axiom can be verified to be consistent with boolean algebra by a truth table. To set up an algebra of any kind you need a certain amount of 'restrictions' on how the elements behave. Huntington's axiom just serves as a way of writing all these restrictions (with some other things assumed). >>1292 Thanks I will have a look at these!
>>1294 >are there any tricks to get better at spanish? CONSOOM. Seriously. If you like watching Minecraft videos on YouTube continue doing the same thing, but in Spanish. YouTube gives you the option to change your country so if you change it to a Spanish speaking one and check the trending tab you’ll have a ton of videos on various topics like gaming, beauty, learning, etc.

Hi, I'm the drawanon that draws our resident catgirls. I've studied and practiced drawing and painting for at least 6 years so I can help out anyone who is stuck in any beginners hurdles (or anything more complex). Whilst I work mainly in digital (a range of different programs) I also know how to use pen and ink + watercolors and gouache paints if anyone is struggling with that. I'm not much good at anything else, but I have an interest in permaculture and vegetable gardening and want to get better at that.
Me:Native Portuguese speaker, the thing that I mostly spend time on is learning languages, languages that I feel confident when speaking are English and Ukrainian. I think I do have a nice understand of phonology and historical linguistics. The others things that I am interested are programming, studied python for a while, I want to study shell scripting and C++. Also I'm trying to get a better understanding of agriculture
Me : French native speaker, can understand English (quite well) and Spanish (not that well), sometimes Japanese. Would love to learn Russian and Mandarin. I'm great with French (regarding grammar, orthography etc, which is not that common), took music classes for ten years but can remember only the basics, and I do sound mixing and have a very good knowledge of sound theory and practice in all fields - shootings, post-production, live sound, music mixing (except hardcore acoustics). I'd love to learn a programming language related to sound (like python for puredata or Max) or just for some gamedev.
Me : Mother language is French, fluent in English, I am average or less on subjects such as science and math, I am (I believe) good[-ish] at art, work on small family farm, and uh, I like history ?

I am a professional software engineer with a masters in it. At work I mostly do system programming related things (C, assembly, shell, lots of debugging), in my free time I like to play with Scheme and program transformations. I would like to learn mathematics and physics.
>>1296 Yes, thanks, I already tried to watch more French films and shows when I started learning french. Didn't fought of the language setting on YouTube.
>>1307 I can help point you in the right direction, what level of math/phys are you at the moment and where would you like to be?
>>1308 If you want some leftist news in French, I can recommend you Le Média https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT67YOMntJxfRnO_9bXDpvw
bumping this for the potential
Me: Uni educated marketer. Can do most forms of digital advertising, print, strategy, copy but main strength is being a generalist who leans towards strategy and appreciating proper research. Learning (slowly) basic css/html and SEO. Also planning to read more economics after finishing Kapital vol.1. Would like to pick up Spanish again sometime in the future.

Any online programs for learning music notes we know of?
>>1742 Music notes? Like learning to read sheet music?
>>1742 Like music theory? Identifying notes? Heres a website for that if thats the case https://www.musictheory.net/exercises
>>1721 Could you give some tips and strategies for growing soc-media account ciews? I'd like my commie propaganda outposts to seen by the most eyes possible.
>>1298 If you're still hanging around, could you shoot me some advice. I've tried to learn a few times in the past, but learning skills from books is always really hard for me in that I have a hard time applying it outside of practicing drills and not going anywhere. Do you have any recommendations on how to either deal with this or alternative resources?

>>4351 Whilst I can't diagnose your specific malady through an anonymous forum, I can give you this general advice: 1. You should be drawing more than you are reading. You will naturally do this in most-all cases but... just to be sure. 2. You have not fully grasped a drawing concept until you have applied it in your work. >To taste the pear, you must change it by eating it. 3. Try and copy/trace/whatever, pieces and photos which look good to you. Don't be afraid of those snotty academics concerned with plagiarism, that's fancy speak for copyright; owning an idea (and fuck that). Most importantly: 4. Have drive to draw. This is where I fucked up the most in my artistic career. For the majority of my time I thought I was worthless because I couldn't draw as well as 'others' (Japanese professionals who are worked to death while alienated from their labor by someone fatcat). I can't tell you what did it specifically, but at some point I snapped and dumped this cycle of shame which has enabled me to draw silly kinds of stuff like the image attached. Hopefully you can also find your drive in producing agitprop for the cause, I certainly did. If you want more clarification or have more questions, please do reply!
>>4353 Thank you for the advice. Where would you recommend to get started?

>>4371 What do you mean by 'get started' exactly?
>>4371 Drawing with the right side of the brain and loomis of course.
I'm a creative media student God help me with a decent level of skill with video editing. I was hoping one day I could email Cockshott to help with the editing in his lecture videos
>>4848 Just go for it, it seems he's quite responsive. However he seems exceedingly busy so idk how keen he would be to try organise it. Definitely worth a shot however.
>>4384 Why is this image so attractive?
