CHEMISTRY DISCOVERY ASSIGNMENT #1NAME:

I've seen two of the six-episode "Elements" subsections so far, both made in the 2000s: Elements Chemistry and Elements Biology.

They're an excellent way to get a brief summary of the subject's basics. I've tried out some other short series for this purpose, but those are often bloated, boring, and, what's worse, - uninformative, leaving you frustrated and unenlightened.

Assignment Discovery is different. Take Chemistry: they give you 6 episodes. They spend the first 10-15 minutes of the episode giving you a very clear, graphically great, illuminating primer on an aspect of chemistry: the periodic table, acids and bases, hydrocarbons. They play some suitable music - bouncy but unobtrusive - in the background, and the narrators - one male, one female - switch between segments. You don't actually see them, which is a refreshing change from annoying, in-your-face narrators with their lame-looking enthusiasm. AD is made in a way that's perfect for people with concentration problems - it relaxes you into learning.

The rest of each episode will proceed in a completely different vein, and a more BBC-ish style, leisurely telling you about how the subject is topical to our lives, usually - to modern technology. You can watch that part, or you can immediately skip to the next episode and get the next condensed-info 15-minute segment from its beginning. That's what I did. Consequently, you can catch up on chemistry in a little over an hour, maybe a little longer if you're gonna take notes and/or pause to look the issue up on the Web. I had to do a couple of such searches, but mostly the presentation of the material was extremely comprehensible.

Title: Assignment Discovery (1992– )

In this assignment, you will learn how to use the maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) approach to solve the truth discovery problem on Twitter and analyze the credibility of tweets from a real-world case study. To formulate the truth discovery problem in social sensing in a manner amenable to rigorous optimization, we consider a group of M sources, namely, S1, S2,...,SM, who make individual observations about aset of N measured variables*, C1, C2,...,CN. In this assignment, we consider sources asthe Twitter users who report tweets during the observation period. Measured variables are represented by the clusters of tweets (e.g., the clusters you generated in Assignment 2), which represent observations about the same topic of an event.

This was a series for Discovery Education's show "Assignment Discovery." I wrote and produced these segments using fantastic media from the Discovery Networks' archives. We created dozens of these, nearly one for each element in the Periodic Table. Some were broadcast on the Discovery Channel. They are all now available to schools and libraries through United Streaming, and on Discovery's educational subscription site Cosmeo.

To conclude I think that given the current canon the USS Discovery’s assignment patch is plausible. It may simply mean that the trend of using delta insignias started before the USS Enterprise made it such a hit. Starfleet adopting the insignia may be the final step of the trend. Of course I will grant that the extra vertical line and the use of glossy and matte materials make for very little difference with the USS Enterprise’s assignment patch. On the other hand we know of at least three insignias that came before the USS Discovery’s which also showed very little difference. We also know of other assignment patches using the same MACO star, which may very well indicate that division symbols have become common at the time of DIS and TOS.

The Discovery Program is an exciting opportunity for select recent college graduates. It consists of three to four assignments spanning multiple technical organizations across APL. The are six months in length each and are designed to provide participants with challenging work that will stimulate professional growth.
