Plotting a well defined function displays nothing for two-thirds of the range required

The plot in question concerns the second derivative of an inverse Laplace transform (ILT) of a function with five parameters. Here is the ILT

ClearAll["Global`*"] prod = (s - cr1) (s - cr2) (s - cr3) (s - cr4); LW = (1 + s)^2/(si prod); Print["symbolic W'=", Wp = D[InverseLaplaceTransform[LW, s, x], x]] 

Four parameters are functions of the fifth parameter "si", defined as the roots of a fourth order equation

cr = {cr1, cr2, cr3, cr4} =     s /. Solve[si s^2 + 107 s/5 + 10 ((1 + s)^(-2) - 1) - 1/10 == 0,       s]; 

Plotting the first derivative of the ILT takes .64

lx = 13; Timing[  pd = Plot[Evaluate[Wp /. si -> 1], {x, 0, lx},     PlotRange -> {{0, lx}, {0.0225, .0275}}]] 

Plotting of the second derivative of the ILT takes 14.84 and displays nothing for two-thirds of the range lx

    Wd = D[Wp, x]; Timing[Plot[(Wd /. si -> 1), {x, 0, lx},   PlotRange -> {{0, lx}, {-0.002, .002}}]] 

Plot3D showing nothing

I tried to plot f(x,y) = cos(x + y) + sin a(x-y) where 0<=a<=10. I used Plot3D[f[x, y], {x, 0, 10}, {y, 0, 10}, AxesLabel -> {"x", "y"},ColorFunction -> GrayLevel]and it’s not working and I think it’s because I left out the condition for ‘a’. I am also unsure how to include ‘a’ inside the Plot3D function.

Pentesting : what should one do if nothing is returned from Vulnerability Assessment

A typicall pentesting activity has the following step :

   1 - information gathering + enumeration    2 - vulnerability assessment (vulnerability scanning)    3 - exploitation    4 - post exploitation (persistence, clearing tracks, etc...)    5 - report writing 

Step 1 to 4 can be a cycle after getting a foothold.

But what do you do if you don’t get that foothold. That is, on the iteration, Step 2 (Vulnerability scanning) does not return any vulnerable service nor configuration. If social engineering is not part of the deal, does it mean it’s pretty much game over ?

Can a hacker access your email address and then choose to do nothing?

Okay, I know my question might sound a bit weird, but I am in a situation where I need knowledge on the subject (btw, if someone can assure me that there was never a Discord or Google data breach since 2018, even unknown to the public, I would be grateful).

I have done a bit of research on what hackers look for in an email address, and it looks like any information is valuable to them, but a friend that knows about the subject has told me that it was possible that a hacker decides to do nothing to your account if you’re "broke or a child".

I was confused, because I think even in that case, it would be possible (and useful) for them to send emails to my contacts on my behalf or log me out and ask for ransom or something like that.

So, is it really possible that a hacker just gives up on your address, and if so, how likely is that ?

Avoiding all or nothing on “short-lived” partials

A sort of common trope I encounter in pbta games is moves with a partial that has you succeed but with the effect “lasting only a moment” (or some similar phrasing). The example I am going to work with is Zuko Style from Dungeon World. The text from that move reads:

When you bend a flame to your will, roll+WIS. On a 10+ it does as you command, taking the shape and movement you desire for as long as it has fuel on which to burn. On a 7-9 the effect is short-lived, lasting only a moment.

From the Dungeon World SRD

Some of these moves (all that I am aware of) tend to have a problem where this partial is sort of all or nothing. That is depending on what you are trying to do it either means a partial is indistinguishable from a success or it serves to do nothing (essentially a silent failure). For an example of an “all” case (in my experience most cases of ZS tend to fall into this category):

The players have a plan of attack, their comrades are in wait on a nearby hill and the party is finally in their place. The agreed upon signal is a burst of flame in the sky. When the time comes they pull a fire starter from their adventuring gear, set of a spark to bend it into a skyward burst. The dice hit the table and come up an 8.

Here we have an issue since the effect was only meant to last a moment the partial is no different than a success. There are plenty of interesting things that could happen here that would certainly make good partials but none that seem to fit the wording of the move.


Here is an example of a “nothing” case:

While the players were distracted fighting off the occultists the library of esoterica was caught in the blaze. Scorch-Skin jumps into action swiping their hand to extinguish the flames. The die are cast, and come up 8.

Here extinguishing the flames for a moment is about as useful as not extinguishing the flames at all. And to make matters worse what is almost certainly going to happen next is that Scorch-Skin is going to just try again. It amounts to pretty much just a silent failure.


What ways should a GM handle a partial on Zuko Style that exemplify the principles of Dungeon World? My goal i a solution I can use in any pbta game, but I have chosen to ground the question specifically in Zuko Style and the rules of Dungeon World, so anything beyond that is extra. I’m looking for answers that don’t involve modifying the move itself or breaking the rules of Dungeon World.

We Want Nothing Less Than Your Absolute Satisfaction

It’s been a busy few weeks for London-based Foot Patrol. After opening their newest retail location in Paris, they’ve now teamed up with asics clothing outlet for a special take on a well-known sneaker: the ASICS GEL-Saga. The legendary running silhouette—first released in 1991—originally drew its design inspiration from the mech characters featured in the classic anime series Gundam Wing.This heratage-inspired collaboration is drawing from that original vision even further, dressing the shoe in a combination of white, grey, blue, and just a touch of pink-just like a Gundam mobile suit’s color scheme. The shoe utilizes white mesh underlays and light grey suede overlays as a base, while the main accents arrive via pearlecent blue and silver patent leather detailing on the iconic tiger stripe. Co-branded accents arrive on the medial heel counter and throat, a medium grey tongue and heel collar add a pinch of dark contrast, and the shoe is completed with pink lace tips boasting a mech-style model number.

Above you will get another look at the latest collab release between Patta and asics appatel stores, the Patta x Asics Gel Lyte. The collab has the Gel Lyte dressed in a Grey, Honey Ginger and Dark Purple color scheme. The shoe is constructed out of premium nubuck, suede and mesh combination while also coming with features such as the co-branded tongue and graphic detailing on the insole, perforation hits on the toe, a total of three different tonal lace options, and the Patta lace dubrae done in Rose Gold. In addition, every pair comes with a custom Asics x Patta hangtag to complete the collaborative look and feel of the shoe.

Having dropped overseas just last month, the asics womens clearance has now made its way stateside.Inspired by the Yokosuka jacket, a popular souvenir among American military in Japan, the BEAMS x mita sneakers x Asics Gel Lyte 3 Souvenir Jacket is made of navy pigskin nubuck and velour on the upper, while the heel features an embroidered dragon patch and ‘Japan’ is embroidered on the side in original script. The outer sole is also inspired by the dragon and features an original graphic.

How do I deal with a player that contributes nothing?

A few weeks ago, I began a new campaign with some newer players, and for the most part they have jumped right in. They may need some strategy work, but they do fine (partially due to me sending them monsters with equally bad tactics.) One of my players, however, doesn’t quite seem to take the game seriously or consider that their character’s actions should be their own, rather than the actions of the person controlling them.

The player in question is a guy I’m gonna call Will for privacy purposes. Will had tried to play the edgiest character they could comprehend, a Vampiric Blood Hunter. I was able to talk them out of this, as I have no experience with both the race and class. So Will decided to play one of the most stereotypical CN rouges that I have ever seen. Now, this is not the main problem with Will’s character. The major disruption to the table is Will’s character attempting to seduce every single male character we encounter by failing charisma checks and generally ruining all of the party’s social encounters with cheesy pickup lines and bizarre and/or explicit pop culture references. Whenever we go into combat, Will is almost always sleeping, and, if not asleep, makes no attempt to help their own party in any way. One example was when the party’s camp was attacked by a band of dimwitted bandits, and Will’s character stayed inside the wagon with his dog, instead of going outside to inspect the obvious sounds of fighting and screaming party members.

I want Will to engage more in the game, but it seems that he doesn’t want to take the game seriously in the least, bursting into half hour fits of laughter in the middle of the game and talking about stuff that is completely out of context. I don’t know what to do about it, but I don’t want to kick Will as his sister and friends are in the group, and it may hurt his self-esteem.

Redirecting – Nothing happens ??

Hi,
I have WordPress blog on my site. Recently Made entire site run on WP that replaced an old, outdated site. Not sure if I did it properly but now I have 2 WordPress installations.
That is fine but I want to permanently redirect some post to new main site pages.
mysite.com/blog/post to redirect to mysite.com/newpage
I tried using cpanel and nothing happens. I tried use a WP plugin and nothing happens.
Any ideas. I believe my posts are cannibalizing my seo…

Redirecting – Nothing happens ??

How to fetch different record when nothing matches in where conditions in the same query?

I am using ORACLE 12C database.

There are two components – Agreement and Case.

Agreement related information stores on Agreement_line and Object Table. Common column between these tables are Trans_id and agr_line_no.

Similarly, Case related information stores in Cla_case and Cla_event table. Common column between these tables is Cla_event_no.

I want to fetch details of case whose incident_date is falling between Cover_start_date and Cover_end_date of Agreement_line table. Incident_date is column of Cla_event table

I am getting desired output from the below query :

select cc.cla_case_no, al.poly_no,al.agr_line_no, al.agr_line_seq_no, al.product_line_id, al.trans_id, al.cover_start_date, ce.incident_date, al.cover_end_date, o.n15, cc.name_id_no, o.object_no, o.seq_no, CASE WHEN o.n15 = cc.name_id_no      THEN ' '      ELSE 'Joint Ins'    END    AS NAME_ID_CHECK from cla_case cc, cla_event ce, agreement_line al, object o where cc.cla_case_no = 9353152 and ce.cla_event_no = cc.cla_event_no and AL.COVER_START_DATE <= CE.INCIDENT_DATE and al.cover_end_date >= ce.incident_date and al.poly_no = 410385376 and al.product_line_id  = 'BHEDS'  and al.agr_line_no = o.agr_line_no and al.trans_id = o.trans_id 

But now I also need to fetch latest record of provided poly_no when the incident_date is not falling between cover_start_date and cover_end_date

I tried below query :

SELECT cc.cla_case_no,        al.poly_no,        al.agr_line_no,        al.agr_line_seq_no,        al.product_line_id,        al.trans_id,        al.cover_start_date,        ce.incident_date,        al.cover_end_date,        o.n15,        cc.name_id_no,        o.object_no,        o.seq_no,        CASE WHEN o.n15 = cc.name_id_no THEN ' ' ELSE 'Secondary insured' END           AS NAME_ID_CHECK,        ' ' "INCIDENT_DATE_CHECK"   FROM cla_case cc,        cla_event ce,        agreement_line al,        object o  WHERE     cc.cla_case_no = 9353152        AND ce.cla_event_no = cc.cla_event_no        AND AL.COVER_START_DATE <= CE.INCIDENT_DATE        AND al.cover_end_date >= ce.incident_date        AND al.poly_no = 410385376        AND al.product_line_id = 'BHEDS'        AND al.agr_line_no = o.agr_line_no        AND al.trans_id = o.trans_id UNION SELECT cc.cla_case_no,        al2.poly_no,        al2.agr_line_no,        al2.agr_line_seq_no,        al2.product_line_id,        al2.trans_id,        al2.cover_start_date,        ce.incident_date,        al2.cover_end_date,        o2.n15,        cc.name_id_no,        o2.object_no,        o2.seq_no,        CASE WHEN o.n15 = cc.name_id_no THEN ' ' ELSE 'Secondary insured' END           AS NAME_ID_CHECK,        'Incident date not falling between cover start date and cover end date '           "INCIDENT_DATE_CHECK"   FROM agreement line al2, object o2 where al2.poly_no not exists ( SELECT al.poly_no FROM cla_case cc, cla_event ce, agreement_line al where cc.cla_case_no = 9353152 and ce.cla_event_no = cc.cla_event_no and AL.COVER_START_DATE <= CE.INCIDENT_DATE and al.cover_end_date >= ce.incident_date and al.poly_no = 410385376 and al.product_line_id  = 'BHEDS' ) and al2.poly_no = 410385376 and al2.product_line_id = 'BHEDS' and al2.newest = 'Y' and  al2.agr_line_no = o2.agr_line_no and al2.trans_id = o2.trans_id 

I am getting error saying “Command not properly ended”. Could anyone please point out what I am doing wrong and is there any other alternative way instead of using UNION ?
