How to learn to draw with iPad and Apple Pencil | iMore
ShadowDraw doesn't support tilt or pressure sensitivity for Apple Pencil, but it has a bunch of interesting tutorials to help show you how to draw in the style of various artists.
How to Draw also doesn't support pressure for Apple Pencil, but the app does offer a nice breakdown of drawing common animal shapes, and doubles as a cute coloring app for budding artists.
How to Draw Everything hasn't been updated in a few years, but the library is a good step-by-step resource to learn how to draw popular anime and game characters, animals, and other elements. You can't draw in it, though, and it's not updated for Retina devices.
Calligraphy Penmanship has its quirks — it's not the most well-designed app, and its pressure controls take some tweaking. But if you're looking to practice basic calligraphy forms, it's a neat option. (The app is free, though you'll have to pay $3 to keep using it after the initial 80-hour trial.

Why I Taught My Son to Speak Russian | The New Yorker
As the psycholinguist François Grosjean stresses, language is the product of necessity. If a child discusses, say, hockey only with his Russian-speaking father, he may not learn until later how to say “puck” in English. But he’ll learn when he has to.

I see friends who came over at the same time as I did but didn’t keep up their Russian raising their kids entirely in English. Sometimes I feel sorry for them and all they’re missing; at other times, envious. They have finally liberated themselves from Russia’s yoke, just as their parents wanted them to. They are free to be themselves around their children, to express themselves with ease. They always know the words for scooter and goat and sheep.

Most of us were more comfortable in English than in Russian, and none of us had any wish to repatriate. Why, then, were we doing this? What did we want to pass on to our children, exactly? Certainly nothing about Russia as it is currently constituted. Perhaps it was fitting that we were listening to children’s songs.

CFD Education Center
This website is a platform on which visitors can discuss Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and get some feedback from CFD experts or other visitors.

One major advantage of this blog is that it works in parallel with different courses taught in fluid mechanics and fundamental books in numerical methods.

The structure of the blog is based on different levels of CFD (elementary, basic, intermediate and advanced) which will be mentioned in the topic of each post. Many common problems of fluid mechanics are approached by proposing discussions about their main aspects and some codes for solving them.

All visitors are welcomed to participate in discussions and suggest solutions. Furthermore, the questions or problems, which are not fully solved during the discussion, will be answered frequently (e.g. every 10 days) by experts.

Data visualisation mistakes — and how to avoid them
If we compare the original and the rework, it is difficult to see how we are looking at the same data. Where Pakistan was previously barely noticeable, now its bias against girls becomes the standout story.

In fact, it is only by reworking the chart that we can see it is of any use at all. Many charts cannot be transformed in this way. Adopt a “fewer but better” mantra when it comes to incorporating them in reports.

With well-selected charts taking care of the key questions of “what?” and “how much?”, the text in a report can focus on the follow-on questions, such as “why?” and “so what?” By conceiving words and graphics simultaneously, reports can be restructured into readable and confident narratives.

One kind of education does not fit all
Such techniques may not seem controversial elsewhere, but in France they challenge central educational tenets. For many years, education has been subject to what might be called “the tyranny of normal”. Ever since Jules Ferry introduced compulsory, free, secular primary education in the 1880s, uniform schooling countrywide has been part of the French way of doing things. The 19th-century instituteur, or schoolteacher, was a missionary figure, a guarantor of republican equality and norms. Teachers were trained in écoles normales. To this day, the mighty education ministry sets standardised curriculums and timetables. All 11-year-olds spend exactly four-and-a-half hours on maths a week. Experimentation is frequently regarded as suspect. “Classes are not laboratories,” noted a report by the conservative education inspectorate a few years ago, “and pupils are not guinea pigs.”

French education has long been run along almost military lines. An army of 880,000 teachers is deployed to schools across the country. Head teachers have no say in staffing. In the course of their careers, teachers acquire points that enable them to request reassignment. Newly qualified ones without such points are sent to the toughest schools, and turnover in such places is depressingly high.

Each year 50,000-60,000 people apply and just 900 are admitted. Léonard Aymard, originally from Annecy, was a tour guide when he applied. Loic Shety, from Dijon, won a place even though he lacked the school-leaving baccalauréat certificate. “It’s not for everyone,” says Mathilde Allard from Montpellier, “but we work together so we don’t get lost.”

When a university cannot take any more, those at schools nearby are supposed to be given priority, but such is the demand that places are increasingly being allocated through random selection by computer, known as tirage au sort, which this year affected 169 degree subjects across France. Ability is immaterial.

The lessons of his school, as well as of Descartes and Oran-Constantine, point a way for France to overcome the tyranny of normal in order to make more of what it does well and minimise what it does not.

Emprunts : mensualités, intérêt, taux, TEG, risque de taux - Images des mathématiques - CNRS
Ou comment impressionner son banquier

Comprenons le principe d’un tel prêt. Chaque mois vous versez une mensualité constante que l’on va chercher à déterminer, on la considère pour le moment comme une inconnue. Cette mensualité sert d’abord à vous « mettre à jour » avec la banque en lui versant la rétribution due ce mois-là pour la somme que vous restiez lui devoir depuis le mois précédent. Une fois « quitte » avec la rétribution de la banque, le reste de la mensualité sert à rembourser une partie du capital prêté (qui diminue ainsi progressivement, on parle de prêt à amortissement progressif). Tout cela est calculé pour que vous ayez remboursé la totalité à la mensualité N.

On est parfois surpris de constater, en recevant son « tableau d’amortissement », que l’on rembourse au début beaucoup d’intérêt et peu de principal. Vu le principe de ces prêts, c’est normal, puisque chaque mois, on paye l’intérêt sur la somme que l’on devait encore le mois précédent, très forte au début et faible à la fin.

Ceci explique sans doute que les prêts sur des durées supérieures à 20 ans, jusqu’à 30, ne soient vraiment apparus que ces 10 dernières années, avec la chute des taux de prêt.

Cette information doit être utilisée avec précaution et ne permet pas de comparer deux prêts s’ils ont des durées différentes. En effet cette information dit certes combien on va donner à la banque, mais pas à quel moment ! Or un banquier sait bien (c’est son cœur de métier) qu’à cause de l’inflation et des placements sûrs, une même somme en euros n’a pas vraiment la même valeur selon la date à laquelle on la reçoit.

les intérêts sont versés chaque année et portent à leur tour intérêt : ce sont les fameux intérêts composés

Donc attention, la donnée qui traduit vraiment l’effort de la banque, c’est le taux d’intérêt. C’est pour cela que c’est ce que l’on négocie âprement avec son banquier, ou que les informations données dans les sites Internet sur les prêts sont exprimées en taux.

Savez-vous que lorsqu’un commerçant vous propose un crédit gratuit supérieur à 3 mois, ceux qui payent comptant doivent se voir proposer un escompte ?

Comment comparer ces deux prêts de durée différente ? En calculant un taux d’intérêt assurance comprise, bien sûr.

Comment faire ? Pour chaque prêt vous calculez la mensualité à l’aide de 2, puis vous ajoutez le montant de l’assurance, et vous calculez comme on l’a vu plus haut le taux correspondant au total prêt + assurance.

Aux Etats-Unis, la révolution éducative des charter schools

J'ai visité de nombreux établissements scolaires aux États-Unis. Je le fais dans tous les pays où je passe, dès que je le peux. Les écoles me semblent être les marqueurs tangibles de la situation véritable d'une nation. Il y a toujours un lien entre l'investissement des États dans les systèmes éducatifs et leur niveau de développement.

C'est la volonté délibérée des «élites locales», qui investissent leurs ressources nationales dans des armées et des forces de police, c'est-à-dire dans les moyens de faire perdurer leur domination féodale.

Letter of Recommendation Duolingo
I did a couple of French lessons, which took all of five minutes. It was easy, and I was smitten by the possibilities. Maybe I’ll even take up German, I thought as I started the second lesson. I would become cosmopolitan and sophisticated, skipping across Europe and impressing local shopkeepers with my breezy fluency wherever I went. Maybe I would learn to differentiate among various wursts. Anything felt possible.

At Waldorf School in Silicon Valley, Technology Can Wait - The New York Times
While other schools in the region brag about their wired classrooms, the Waldorf school embraces a simple, retro look — blackboards with colorful chalk, bookshelves with encyclopedias, wooden desks filled with workbooks and No. 2 pencils.

On a recent Tuesday, Andie Eagle and her fifth-grade classmates refreshed their knitting skills, crisscrossing wooden needles around balls of yarn, making fabric swatches. It’s an activity the school says helps develop problem-solving, patterning, math skills and coordination. The long-term goal: make socks.

Down the hall, a teacher drilled third-graders on multiplication by asking them to pretend to turn their bodies into lightning bolts. She asked them a math problem — four times five — and, in unison, they shouted “20” and zapped their fingers at the number on the blackboard. A roomful of human calculators.

In second grade, students standing in a circle learned language skills by repeating verses after the teacher, while simultaneously playing catch with bean bags. It’s an exercise aimed at synchronizing body and brain. Here, as in other classes, the day can start with a recitation or verse about God that reflects a nondenominational emphasis on the divine.

parents of students at the Los Altos school say it attracts great teachers who go through extensive training in the Waldorf approach, creating a strong sense of mission that can be lacking in other schools.

Learning Arabic from Egypt’s Revolution

In Dardasha, icons of little bombs with burning fuses had been printed next to the kind of phrase that, even during a revolution, qualified as explosive: Your son is really smart, Madame Fathiya. Fortunately, this compliment-bomb was promptly disarmed: This is what God has willed, Madame Fathiya, your son is really smart.

Grammar functions as a kind of spice, similar to the way that Sichuanese cuisine uses strong flavors to create satisfying meals that actually contain little meat.

Western academics call it modern standard Arabic, although the language retains strong links to the time of Muhammed. Back then, Arabic lacked a strong written literary tradition, and, in the eyes of believers, the Prophet’s illiteracy is evidence of the divine nature of the Quran. Even a skeptic like Rifaat told us that the Quran is so beautiful that it could only have come from God.

In China, the Han dynasty, which was founded in 206 B.C.E., codified and standardized the Confucian, or Ruist, classics, a process that helped set the terms for the writing system. By taking these centuries-old texts as their model of proper Chinese writing, the Han prescribed an idealized language—classical Chinese—that was probably never spoken in day-to-day life.

traditionalists feared further cultural damage. It will not be long before our ancestral language loses its form, God forbid, an editor at the newspaper Al-Ahram wrote, in 1882. How can we support a weak spoken language which will eliminate the sacred original language?

Most important, classical Chinese wasn’t tied to a religion or a divine text.

while places like German Switzerland also practice diglossia, the use of two languages, the difference is that both Swiss German and High German are living, spoken languages. The majority of Arab children are put in a position that I cannot think of an equivalent for any other group of children in the world, she said.

How I Learned Japanese: The Freedom of the Non-Native Speaker

I was taken by an aunt to an ethnological museum, and there among the exhibits was a scroll painted with the Chinese character for sheep: 羊. I can still remember vividly the impression it made on me.

I was drawn to the beauty of this new way of writing, so different from the German alphabet, which struck my childish mind as unnecessarily longwinded and cumbersome. I loved the idea of each symbol conveying a single concept, or a whole world. And I loved how quickly the characters could be written. (Sometimes I tried writing the character for sheep and spelling out the word out in German and timing myself to see which took longer.) The fact that it was possible to write a whole word in such a small space impressed me as extremely practical and rational. This might sound like a typically “German” way of thinking about things. But I had made up my mind: One day I would learn how to write these wonderful characters myself.

On TV, the on-screen text “subtitles” that are such a characteristic of Japanese television were a great help, whether I was watching the news or one of the light entertainment programs. Watching television turned out to be a great way of learning how a word was pronounced and how it was written.

I wrote my blog for five years. It changed my life massively, not just by improving my Japanese, but by allowing me to discover something more fundamental—the joy of writing. Japanese has lots of words to express emotional concepts that we don’t have in German. For some reason, I feel these expressions match my personality. My sense for Japanese might not be quite the same as a Japanese person’s. But conversely, I have come to feel that as a foreign-language user of the language, I am free to use Japanese in a free way that might not be possible for a native speaker.
