Gaming with the devil of card table

Legend has it that "Bluidy Tam" enjoyed on occasion a hand of cards with the devil. During one of these games, the devil, losing, threw the card table at the general. The devil missed and the table flew threw through the window and ended up in a pond on the grounds of the House of the Binns. This tale was passed down through generations of inhabitants of the Binns. In 1870, following a particularly hard drought, a marble topped card table was seen poking through the low waters of the pond. In 1930 the mother of the twentieth century Tam Dalyell asked a local joiner to repair the legs on the table, to find out that the about-to-be-retired tradesman's first job had been to retrieve said table from the pond.

Plot summary of card table

Upon inheriting his father's newspaper and magazine empire, Sir Basil Turton suddenly finds himself the most sought-after bachelor in London society. Much to everyone's surprise, he marries a virtually unknown Continental European named Natalia. Sir Basil being little interested in anything other than his art collection, the new Lady Turton assumes control of the Turton Press, becoming in the process a major player in the political arena.

Six years after the marriage, the narrator of the story, a society columnist, finds himself seated next to the imperious Lady Turton at a dinner party. When she at long last takes notice of him, she bombards him with a series of personal questions, during the course of which he mentions his love of art. Lady Turton uninterestedly invites him to see Sir Basil's collection at their house in the country and the narrator eagerly accepts.

Arriving at the estate the following Saturday, the narrator is impressed by the extravagant topiary with large trees trimmed into a variety of shapes, including a complete chess set, and the many sculptures and statues on the grounds. Over the course of the evening, the narrator perceives Major Haddock, another guest for the weekend, is infatuated with Lady Turton, who does not rebuff his advances. It is also obvious to the narrator that the butler, Jelks, holds her ladyship in contempt for the cruel way she treats Sir Basil; Jelks has offered, in return for a third of the narrator's card winnings over the weekend, to give him hints on Lady Turton's strategies at the card table.

The next day, the gracious Sir Basil takes the narrator on a tour around the vast estate. Stopping to rest, the two men sit on a bench overlooking the garden and begin chatting, at which time the narrator notices a woman wandering in the garden. She is soon joined by a man who is carrying in his hand a small camera. The two figures approach a piece of sculpture (a wooden piece by Henry Moore) and appear to be laughing at it. The man begins to take pictures while the woman strikes ludicrous poses beside the piece, at one point sticking her head through one of its holes. The man takes more pictures and, from the narrator's perspective, leans down and kisses the woman, her laughter filling the air.

It soon becomes apparent, however, that the woman cannot free her head from the sculpture, and, seeing the man is unable to release her, Sir Basil and the narrator make their way down to the garden; they find the two figures are Lady Turton and Major Haddock. As her ladyship angrily berates her husband, Sir Basil tells Jelks to fetch a saw so he can cut her out of the piece. When the butler returns with a saw in one hand and an axe in the other and offers the implements to his employer, the narrator notices the hand holding the axe is extended out further toward Sir Basil, as though Jelks is trying to coax him into using it instead of the saw. Sir Basil takes the axe. The narrator closes his eyes in anticipation of what is about to befall the terrified Lady Turton when he hears Sir Basil say, "Look here, Jelks. What on earth are you thinking about? This thing's much too dangerous. Give me the saw." The narrator looks at Lady Turton, who is pale-faced and gurgling incoherently with fear, and then at Sir Basil, who for the first time has the traces of a smile in his eyes.

How to Teach Image Processing and Computer Graphics to a Blind Student?
How to teach image processing and computer graphics to a blind student?I think you can teach 2D graphics using a tactile approach on a phone or tablet. Students are very likely to be used to tracing their fingers over a mobile device (I have watched awesome videos of blind iPhone users in action).So position and shape change of an object could be detected by them dragging their fingers over to get auditory feedback at the edges. Ideally you want a truly tactile surface but I do not know of any such devices. I have my own reasons for wanting a computer-controlled version of one of these For actual image processing maybe map colours to tone, so as they move their finger over an image they hear a tone vary depending on the average pixels underneath. Then, as transforms are applied, the tones would change. You could possibly teach colour theory by varying the mapping to only one channel of RGB.Update in one of those great examples of synchronicity, a few days after writing the above I was listening to Matthias Tretter of MindNode on a podcast mention how he had been convinced to add accessibility to MindNode, a visual mindmapping product by a blind user. His blog posting has videos showing VoiceOver in action. This is a bit tangential to the original answer but a nice anecdote about how preconceptions about the intended purpose of a tool as being visual does not rule it out for blind users— — — — — —Image processingUS 6137498 also granted as EP 0852363 - (Main article: Photographic mosaic)Robert Silver's patent on his photographic mosaicing technique. The UK part of the European patent is currently undergoing revocation proceedings, the results of which may be important in comparing the practice of the UK Patent Office with that of the European Patent Office.US 6384822 (Main article: Shadow volume)A patent covering the technique commonly known as Carmack's Reverse.— — — — — —Quantum image processingQuantum image processing (QIMP) is primarily devoted to using quantum computing and quantum information processing to create and work with quantum images . Due to some of the astounding properties inherent to quantum computation, notably entanglement and parallelism, it is anticipated that QIP technologies will offer capabilities and performances that are, as yet, unrivaled by their traditional equivalents. These improvements could be in terms of computing speed, guaranteed security, and minimal storage requirements, etc. .— — — — — —What are True Positive and False Positive with reference to image processingA ,,true'' positive would be an image that has a property (in the context of face detection maybe: ,,contains a face'') and that is recognized by a program as such. A ,,false'' positive then is one that does not have the property but is recognized anyway— — — — — —How is the digital image processing of photographs related to bitmapped painting ?I love this LC! One of my faves by you. The idea of pictures and photography of humans remains selfish in a way. A photo never captures the moment. People always stand together, arms on one another, making their perfect camera smile, but you still do not understand the truth of what was happening at that moment. So on the opposite end, I propose this: we should take pictures of all memories. If you are at a party and someone is angry and crying, take a pic! That is the truth we should try to remember--not just the happy times but rather all of the moments of our lives— — — — — —If I were to test my concepts and knowledge of the image processing domain, what questions should I ask to myself?Try to think in terms of problems at low level, mid level and high level vision. How to denoise? How to detect edges? Basics of JPEG. How does the hough transform work? Internals of image descriptors like SIFT. Basics of camera model. Someways to achieve image segmentation. How is image/scene recognition being addressed?Also, pose yourself real-world/toy problems and see how you will go about solving them. How will you find the salient segment of a video, for example— — — — — —where can i download text book "Digital Image Processing" by Gonzalez R. C & Woods R.E.,?There is no free and legal place to download this textbook. I suggest you check used textbook stores and purchase a legal copy. Unless the author AGREES to work for free, it is not LEGAL. Few authors can afford to give their work away for free.
