    The Official 2010 Fifa World Cup Thread

    + 1 I guess it really boils down to whether the position of the arms and hands, in the circumstances, was natural. One could argue that because the arms and hands were outstretched, they weren't in a natural position and so its a deliberate handball. The flip side is that it is natural for a...

    Ajudicating (Debating)

    If your uni has a debating or public speaking student society/club, I suggest you join it. Should get plenty of adjudicating opportunities there. Meet new friends, brush up on your debating skills, and it should be all good.

    harder series and sequences

    Actually, it's gonna be a series of geometric series. The answer that I've got is (3x - 1)/[(x-1)^2], assuming that |x| < 1.

    I'd be willing to help out. I charge $30/hr, $50 for 2 hrs. And, I personally would be more than happy to go meet you in person, face to face - tutoring is better that way.

    Extension 1 MAths ...plzzz help!!!

    (1 - 3 x - 4 x^2 )( 1 + 2/x )^6 = 1 - 3x well, you've got to get the constant terms - you need to find the right 'pairings' when you multiply the two binomial terms (the quadratic, and the one with power of 6) to get the independent terms. So, with 1 --> pair up with 6C0(1)^6 with - 3x -->...

    Branded as "stupid" in law school?

    Re: Branded as "stupid" in law school?? I was a full-fee paying student last year at USyd doing Laws, and no-one really makes a big deal out of it, even the UAIs. The talk about UAIs stop at "What was your UAI?...Oh, ok.". And there is even less talk about CSP or DFEE places. No-one gives a...
