How The Rubik's Cube Came To Be

Rubiks CubeThe Rubik's cube is perhaps the world's most popular toy, with hundreds of millions of them being sold since its create in 1974. You can travel to nearly every country in the world and find someone twisting the cube away, trying to solve the puzzle. How exactly did this curious little puzzle come about? Well in 1974, a certain professor of architecture in the country of Hungary named Erno Rubik created this puzzle in his attempt to create one that was incredibly difficult to solve. His goal for the cube was to build it in such a way that it could be twisted and turned, yet be sturdy and durable. He could not have known that his convention would become the world’s best-selling toy ever.

Erno always intended for the Cube to be viewed as an object of art. He wanted it to embody many fundamental opposites. A puzzle so simple by design, yet so complex to solve. A design so stable, yet allowing for great dynamics. A device that appears so peaceful, yet has caused people frustration for decades.  Have you ever completely solved a Rubik's cube? What is the fastest you have ever solved one? Let us know in a comment below?

Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 Database Development (Hardcover) I purchased this book as soon as it was released, and used it as my exclusive study material for the exam. I took my exam today and passed by a healthy margin. Although I use SQL Server on a daily basis at my job, much of the content of the exam goes beyond my typical day-to-day development tasks, and I don’t believe I would have passed the exam had I not used this material to prepare for it.The only bad thing I have to say about this book involves the Practice Tests provided on the CD. Very frequently, questions would deal with topics that simply were not covered in the book itself. Typically the questions would ask for highly specific syntax to perform fairly obscure tasks. The questions direct you to the chapter and section of the book where the topic is covered, but it was very common for me to find no reference at all to a question’s topic when I referred to that section (or when I search the PDF version of the book.) The good news is that each test question, and its answers, are fully explained. But the bad news is that I felt like the practice questions were testing me on materials that simply weren’t discussed in the book. This made me feel unprepared for the exam, and it made me question whether the book was incomplete, or if the practice questions were actually beyond the scope of the exam.In the end, the actual exam had none of the obscure questions I had grown used to seeing on the practice exams, and I believe that every question on the exam itself was covered adequately in the book. So if you’re studying for this exam, and you feel like the practice tests are causing you to reconsider taking it, you should probably give the exam a shot. I got a 10% better score on the actual exam than I did on the best practice test I took from the CD.

Thanks for contributing. It's helped me understand the issues.

Whoa, whoa, get out the way with that good information.

There's nothing like the relief of finding what you're looking for.

Hello Russell!First and foremost, I’d like to apologize for the very late reply. Again, I’m terribly sorry!Two things you need to consider before getting a film camera:1) Which type of photography you would like to practice.2)What kind of film would suit you the most.You can then choose you camera accordingly.Plastic cameras are fairly cheap. You can get them at very reasonable prices on eBay. I would suggest Lomography.com, but their prices are a bit expensive compared to the rest. Anyways, I’d suggest you check with your local photo lab to see the types of film they develop. You wouldn’t want to get a medium format camera (cameras that use 120mm film) until you know for sure you can get your 120s process at your area. Getting them shipped and returned would cost a lot!I would suggest getting either a Diana or a Holga, if you are interesting in experimenting with photography. These two cameras will definitely help you find, and develop your own unique style as a photographer, and since they don’t cost an arm and a leg (like your average DSLR) you can modify your little plastic camera however you please!I’ve heard some very excellent stuff about the Lomo LC-A+. Great 35mm camera. Recommended for starters.There are plenty of other cameras which you can find, again, at lomography.comAll of the pictures above were taken from their online store.I’m really glad that you’re showing interest in film photography at a young age Film, in my opinion, requires more practice than digital photography. Granted your first couple of rolls might be either severely over exposed, or underexposed, but with practice, you might be the next HCB!I have tried, and loved Hipstamatic, but nothing beats the real deal ;p! Also, check Instagram. I’m sure you’ll love it! And if you create an account there, let me know. I’d love to see the pictures you take, Russell. I’m more active on Twitter, so if you want, you can reach me there. I’ll be able to answer your questions instantly. Hope I was somewhat of a help to you, and happy holidays!-Nada

Hello M!Well first, you need to consider which type of film you will be using. Basically there are two types of films you could use, either the 120mm (a.k.a medium format film) or the regular 35mm film. This shouldn’t be a problem since medium format cameras such as Holga & Diana can be modified to take a 35 film, and to me that’s an advantage.I haven’t tried the supersampler yet. It looks mighty fun But I wouldn’t recommend it a lot since there isn’t much of modifications you can do to it unlike the Diana.As for the fish-eye camera, I would suggest getting a instead of the whole camera. This way you can have both a regular and a fish eye camera at the same time. Assuming that you live in Kuwait, keep in mind that medium format films aren’t very accessible here. As a matter of a fact, I only found one place that still sells 120s but they only had one kind film & unfortunately it was Fuji pro 160.Since you’re new to photography, I would suggest either getting a or a with their (just in case you wanted to use a regular film) and get your film supply from .If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. I’d be glad to help a future fellow lomographer -Nada

Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 Database Development (Hardcover) The book:Great book, covers all of the exam topics very well and in a concise manner. You’ll learn everything you need to know by doing the practice lessons that are at the end of every chapter. Even if you’re not writing the exam, this book would be great for someone wanting to learn about SQL 2008 changes on the developer level. Highly recommended!The practice exams that are included:Are horrible for the most part. Many of the questions are overly complex and some make no sense. For example, to have a persisted view, what SET options have to be set to on. Choose all that apply (from a list of 10 or so possible answers)…nobody with a life is going to know that or even need to know it. Also some of the answers are quite wrong, tried a few of the queries and they failed, even though they were marked as right. I honestly wouldn’t even use the practice exams and instead use MeasureUp or SelfTestSoftware.In summary, the book is great, I went over the book for about a month and a half, and combined with my experience I scored 100% on the exam.
