    notice grids are used everywhere in day-to-day life. For example, the keyboard on your laptop, the pixelated squares on your TV screen, and the apps on your IPhone all consist of grids. In the article Grids, Rosalind Krauss discusses the significance of grids in artwork, specifically in modern art. Krauss describes grids as the “modernity of modern art” and examines the impact behind the grid’s centrifugal and centripetal existence. There are two ways in which Krauss explains the grid’s function as the modernity of modern art—spatial and temporal. In the spatial sense, the grid declares the space of art to be independent and having a purpose within itself. The grid, being flattened, geometricized, and ordered, is the exact opposite of what nature should look like. The coordinates of the grid and its complete flatness are means of eliminating reality by replacing them with the single spread of a flat, 2-D surface. In the temporal sense, the grid is an emblem of modernity by simply being omnipresent in the art of our century, while appearing nowhere else in the art of the past. Thus, the grid represents the present and everything else that came…

    Traditionally, power grid architectures were standalone systems that consisted of proprietary protocols traversing legacy hardware and software systems (Li et al., 2012). Power grid automation systems using this type of architecture carried high operating costs that power companies found to be inefficient over time (Kuder et al., 2010). Due to this inefficiency, power companies began to integrate the operation of power grid automation systems into public networks. This integration served its…

    through other means. These recruiters are on the lookout for both ongoing open positions, such as nurses, and also anticipated hard-to-fill positions, such as a pharmacist who will be retiring in six months.

    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a play based on the novel written by Mark Haddon. It was adapted into a play by Simon Stephens and is currently being shown at the Gielgud Theatre in London. The first thing I noticed when entering the Gielgud Theatre was how big it was. The stage itself was very large, and was a proscenium arch, meaning that the audience faces the stage straight-on. The very unique thing about this stage was that the back wall was a giant cube-like math grid.…

    The programs reflect their users, their human creators, which makes them appear human. On a screen in the physical world, programs would only appear as lines of code, but within the digital realm, they are given a body and even some form of free will. The Grid is their world and this world can reflect our own. The programs are humans, living in the Grid and being ruled by two, who are essentially the same as them, except they have more power. If the programs do not obey their will, then they are…
