"Host and pro surfer Matt Beacham introduces viewers to the next generation of action sports heroes. The young guns, who are no older than 16, prove their skills on the hills, waves, and streets across the world. With Season 3 starting March 29 @ 8:30pm EST, New Pollution has made history featuring riders who've landed endorsement deals and superstardom, ripping against pros 2-3 times their age."

I don't get it. "proving skills", "endorsement deals", "superstardom", "2-3 times their age"," action sports heroes", " no older than 16", "across the world." I have problems with all of these concepts. It's so fucking unfortunate that television is so obssessed with selling youth like it's some kind of plausiable milestone. I can't believe this is marketed as "reality." It's such a fucking corny joke. Action Sports is the most jokiest title ever. Is it supposed to make people that exercise on wheels appear less gay or more gay I can't tell? Do losers exist anymore? Or are losers humans that stubbornly age past sixteen?





MATH IS FUCKED UP, BUT VERY IMPRESSIVE WHEN YOU CAN DEFY THREE HUNDRED YEARS OF WASTED PAPER AND CRACKED PENCILS


UPPSALA, Sweden, May 28 (UPI) -- A 16-year-old in Sweden says when he first presented his solution to a 300-year-old mathematics formula, he was met with skepticism from his teachers.

Mohamed Altoumaimi, an Iraqi immigrant to Sweden, said undeterred, he presented the formula explaining the calculation of Bernoulli numbers to professors at Sweden's Uppsala University, The Local said Thursday.

"When I first presented it to my teachers, none of them believed that the formula I had written down really worked," Altoumaimi said.

"Right away they wanted to take a look at all my calculations and the documents where I show that the formula really works," the teen added regarding Uppsala professors' interest in his work.

Uppsala professors ultimately verified Altoumaimi's solution to the mathematics problem, which has served as a significant mathematical challenge for 300 years.

The Local said while the Bernoulli numbers formula had previously been solved, Altoumaimi's work was praised as a result of his young age and educational level.

"It's really exciting, now all the teachers have come and congratulated me," the teen said of the response to his formula.

Bernoulli numbers are sequenced rational numbers connected to number theory.


@-()-----------


In mathematics, the Bernoulli numbers are a sequence of rational numbers with deep connections to number theory. They are closely related to the values of the Riemann zeta function at negative integers.

In note G of Ada Lovelace's notes on the Analytical Engine from 1842, Lovelace describes an algorithm for generating Bernoulli numbers with Babbage's machine [~ 1]. As a result, the Bernoulli numbers have the distinction of being the subject of the first computer program.

Born French, Unknown Hipster early moved to New York to become a painter, a poet, or whichever position was available on the Art scene. Once a lead tambourin for « Uneven dusk », it’s unclear what became his main occupation after the band quickly broke-up. All can be said is that Unknown frequently appears at Fashionable and Cultural events without being necessarily on the list.

VAN'T GET ENOUGH..



my dad always doodled and he kept a pad on his desk. one day he drew the stripe he wanted for our shoes and went to our patent guy, an old cobbler from boston, and showed it to him. he called it to the jazz stripe and they liked it so he put it on the old skool, style 36. that was our first skate shoe that had leather on it and first came out in 77."-steve van doren on the birth of the vans sidestripe.




vans is releasing this coffee table skate book about the past few decades in the skate game. i for one, am a coffee book whore. the vans site has a pretty awesome short video about the initial waffle grip process in their southern california factories in the late 70's. it's pretty fucking awesome watching these like old surfers cook these things together. tight.
