The Fediverse is great thanks to things like the #canHelpWith hashtag. Here goes mine!
I can help with:
- Baking: bread and cakes including sourdough
- Academic writing: LaTeX and bibliography management
- College level mechanical engineering (I teach at uni!): vibration, noise, structures, material properties and the like. Also numerical methods, specially finite elements.
- Spanish: I'm a native 😊
Feel free to ask about anything and I'll try to help.
Now that I'm reading so many #introductions I realised that I never introduced myself here!
I'm a researcher in applied mechanics, blogger and home baker. I'm obsessed with sourdough bread and free software and paint and knit whenever I can.
My objective for 2018 is learning to play the mandolin :D
Since the radishes sprouted, there are no caterpillars in the Galician cabbages: it looks like they prefer the tender radish leaves.
This is good news taking into account the radishes grow superfast, can stand a little bit of chewing and are far from the cabbages.
I may plant some more as a distraction crop!
BTW: I'm restudying because I have to teach the stuff and the notes are really hard going!
If any of you knows of any enjoyable material (e.g. visual, related to real world...) for learning differential equations, they would make me and my students a great favour by sharing it ❤️
Music Monday! This week, arpeggios (and note that next week it will be season finale!). I had mentioned before that chords are three or more notes played at the same time, eg. if you play E, G, and B at the same time, you are playing an E minor chord (try playing the three notes separately, and then press the "Highlight" button to play the chord):
Also, I like planting radishes because of the sound of the Spanish word for them: rábano.
I can go around them singing:
Rá - bano 🎶
Rá - bano 🎶
Rá - bano 🎶
Looks like the radish seeds I collected are viable. I'm going to wait a little bit to check what kind of radish they produce and, if everything goes well, start sharing them with people around as I have several hundreds of them.
The part I like the most about these seeds is that I received the original ones from a coworker that got them as a present in a promotion in the supermarket!
Next time I see her I'll give her some radishes 👏
