* A good place to start is Adobe’s website (www.adobe.com/photoshop). * For a complete tutorial that teaches both beginners and intermediate Photoshop users, download the _Photoshop Essentials For Dummies_ guide on DVD or go to the companion website () for a download. Here are some basic and helpful steps for using Photoshop: 1. **Create a new document with whatever type of document it is you want to use, like a background image.** If you want to make a photo into a webpage background, for example, create a new document in Photoshop. 2. **Place the background image on the Photoshop document.** You can place an image in any size you need, even in an entirely different size than the original image. Make sure that the background image is visible before saving the file. 3. **Navigate to File⇒Save For Web & Devices (or Control+S) and check the box for **Save for Web & Devices. **You can choose whether to “Download to Your Computer” or “Save to Folder.”** After you save the file, a dialog box will appear with options to open the file and save it (or open the file and stay in the browser window in the background). To save a file to a folder, do one of two things: * Click OK in the save dialog box. * Choose File⇒Save. In either case, a box will appear where you type a location for the file and save it there, such as a local folder or a web folder on a web server. You can also create a web folder on a computer and then copy the file to the folder or to a network location that’s on the web. Chapter 5 # Chapter 12: Cleaning Up Your Pictures IN THIS CHAPTER **Setting file preferences in Photoshop** **Customizing the appearance of an image** **Fixing bad photos** People love to take pictures, and they often take better pictures than they think they can. But a picture that looks great on the photographer’s computer monitor may look lousy when viewed on a different computer monitor. It’s not uncommon to learn that a friend’s grand-daughter took a great picture of Grandpa, but Grandma

Dipole-pulse interaction during directional information transfer in neuronal circuits. During the process of information transfer, directional coupling from one neuron to another usually enhances signal transmission when one neuron spikes preferentially before the other one does. However, this is not always the case. In this paper, we study the relationship between directional information transfer and dipole-pulse interaction. We divide the network into two modules and define two neuron-connectivities. One is antipodal and the other is planar between the two modules. From simulations, we find that the maximum value of directional information transfer in the antipodal case is larger than that in the planar case and dipole-pulse interactions may further enhance directional information transfer. Our results indicate that dipole-pulse interaction plays a crucial role in directional information transfer in the network.Fluorocarbons are currently used in various applications in industry, commerce and, of course, in the household. The most important end uses are as blowing agents in the making of foam insulation and as gaseous carriers for food and other products. These end uses have not, however, been without a certain amount of environmental concern. Because of this concern there is interest in developing new fluorocarbon based products for such uses as may be deemed environmentally safe and desirable. Fluorocarbons are considered environmentally unsafe as they are believed to be detrimental to the earth’s ozone layer. There are many references in the patent literature describing the manufacture of fluorocarbon based compositions, many of these being directed to reducing or avoiding the above-mentioned environmental problem. For example, there has been a large amount of effort in recent years to find replacements for CFC’s as blowing agents. There is also a large amount of effort in the area of CFC-free compositions, most of these being based on HFC’s which have much lower ozone depletion potentials than the CFC’s. A problem associated with the use of low ozone depleting HCFC’s, such as 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane (HFC 134a) and 1,1,1,2,3,3,3-heptafluoropropane (HFC 227ea) as blowing agents is the high flammability of these materials. While both of these materials are flammable at 25.degree. C., they become even more flammable at higher temperatures. For example, HFC 134a is classified as

People Who Read Books Aloud to Kids Are More Generous Giving children a chance to hear us read aloud books teaches them more about giving and nurtures their imaginations. We may not have had as much practice at reading when we were kids as a lot of parents, but we’re doing our best to read just a few of our children’s books aloud as a bedtime routine, and it’s teaching us all about being more generous, parents and kids alike. At bedtime, every night, you can read a new book to your child. Find books you’ve read in the past that your child loves, and at least try to do one of them every night. When you have a new picture book, read it. Preferably before you sit down for bed, do one book with your child. Why? Well, aside from the fact that it teaches your child to take turns and be quiet while listening, it also connects them with you. If you always pick a book that you’ve read to your kids before, there’s a good chance they’ll think of you when they hear you, and they’ll want to turn that image into a story of their own. The most important thing here isn’t that reading aloud helps teach your kids about generosity, though. It’s that reading books aloud does wonders for your children’s imaginations. So much fun. Read aloud, and you’ll boost your child’s creativity. I think of my kids as precious little artists, and reading to them gives their imaginations a delicious kick.. Its easy to see that $$\frac{\pi_{ij}}{\sqrt{2\pi}}\equiv1.$$ So, the operator $D_{m}$ can be written as $$D_{m}(x)=\prod_{j=1}^{m}(x-j+1/2).$$ [9]{} A.V. Kitaev, A.H. Shen and M.N.
