    1. Huang has his sights set firmly on Intel, but while Intel has leveraged its integration of design and manufacturing, Nvidia is going to leverage its integration of chip design and software.

      beyond CUDA mentioned throughout, it's also worth mentioning that Nvidia still lacks useful open source drivers on Linux, and does not provide technical info that commonly is available to document their systems, such that open source developers could build open source drivers

    2. And so we are about to put the entire might of our company behind this architecture, from the CPU core, to the CPU chips from all of these different customers,

      notably absent: ARM's GPU cores. ;)

    1. Here’s Warren Buffett: “Cola has no taste memory. You can drink one at 9am, 11am, 5pm. You can't do that with cream soda, root beer, orange, grape. You get sick of them after a while. The average person drinks 64 ounces of liquid per day, and you can have all 64 ounces of that be Coke.”Same with Doritos, Cheetos, most popular junk food. They are engineered to overcome “sensory-specific satiety” and to give a sense of “vanishing caloric density.”

      Why chips and coca-cola are addicting:

      the taste is vanishing

    1. Hello, Chipping. I hear the boys gave you a rough time. They will not do it again, Mr. Bingham, I assure you.

      I am highlighting this as the set up scene to one that will follow below on Mr. Chipping's handling of the boys misbehavior in his classroom.

    2. The boys are unusually quiet. What does it mean? Something has occurred. What is it? Well, sir, it's really no business of mine, but I think, sir, perhaps I can explain. You, Mr. Chipping? Yes, sir. I'm keeping my class in this afternoon. That means Maynard, our best player Please, Mr. Shane. Sir, I'd entirely forgotten about the cricket match. Forgotten? Yes. My attention was drawn to the fact by my class in such an insolent manner I thought it inadvisable to go back on my decision. You observe the effect on the school? I do indeed, sir. It's most regrettable.

      This is the scene that followed Mr. Chips telling the other staff member that the boys would not misbehave on his watch again.

      This scene, Mr. Chips has to own up to the headmaster that the school would be severely depleted of Cricket players because he took away their outdoor play rights because of their behavior.

      As teachers (and parents too), we have to hold ground when dishing out punishment in order to enforce and reinforce proper behaviors that we want our students (kids) to follow.

      In the Theories textbook, B.F. Skinner talks a lot about theories revolving around shaping, reinforcement, extinction, etc. But what exact theory directly links to what Mr. Chips did to and for the boys' development?

    3. I think you better see me after prayers. Yes, sir. Our profession is not an easy one, Mr. Chipping. It calls for something more than a university degree. Our business is to mold men. It demands character and courage. Above all, it demands the ability to exercise authority. Without that, I think any young man should ask himself seriously if he has not perhaps mistaken his vocation. No, sir When a man is young, Mr. Chipping there are many walks of life open to him. I hope you don't mean that I should resign. I should be very reluctant to do that, sir. It means everything to me to come to Brookfield. I'll get on. Please give me the chance to prove it, sir. I am willing to forget the incident but will those boys forget it? You're going to have to face them again. That'll take courage. Moral courage. However, if you care to make the trial Thank you, sir. I shall watch your progress with interest. Thank you, sir. I'm deeply grateful to you.

      The scene where the boys are giving Mr. Chips a rough time on the first day is very powerful, if not one of the most significant scenes of the movie as a whole in terms of the school setting at least. But what took place afterwards really ties into what we have learned throughout the semester in many ways.

      When Mr. Chips is receiving his "verbal reprimand" from the headmaster, he was really being molded himself on how to effectively establish classroom management, routines, and discipline procedures. Each of these come in the EFC textbook, and in particular to the case of the movie, chapter 7: Addressing Discipline Issues.

      Along with Ch 7 in the EFC, this scene really relates to our Opening Minds textbook, also chapter 7. The scene directly speaks towards taking moral development seriously, and the power it has within school walls that will no doubt lead to better citizens. How do we as teachers play a vital part in the role of moral development by showing courage in the face of our students when things are not going so great, such as a student misbehaving? How can we set norms and create a fair environment in the classroom? What might be some long term effects of this on the students that receive these ever important lessons?

      This scene also leads directly into Lawrence Kohlberg's theory on moral development. What the headmaster is telling Mr. Chips almost seems to come right out of our book on page 139 of the Theories textbook, "moral development has considerable implications for students' overall development into well-functioning adults as well as impact on the classroom learning environment.

    4. That's the school song. It's a beautiful song. Yes, sir.

      At first when I saw this small part, I knew that I felt it had connections to our lessons, but I thought I might have been reaching a bit. However, after watching this small segment of the movie repeatedly, I couldn't help but notice the effect Mr. Chips had on little Dorset. This is because Mr. Chips stops speaking and softly sings the school song along with the rest of the school in the background. It was at this moment that Dorset lowered his brow and realized he was now part of something much bigger at Brookfield (in itself a community of practice). What was Mr. Chops displaying according to Chapter 8 in our Theories in Educational Psychology book? There are specific moments during this brief moment in the movie that have significance towards Albert Bandura and a few of his theories.

    5. Well, here we are. Won't you come in? Sorry. I must be getting along, sir. I've got to unpack. Lower school prep at : . Oh, of course. That's always the new master's fate. It's a bit of an ordeal, isn't it, sir? Well, I found it so when I started in . You found difficulty with the boys? But seeing you just now? It took time. Too much time. You seem to have found the secret in the end. What? The secret? Oh, yes, in the end but I didn't find it myself, Mr. Jackson. It was given to me by someone else. Someone else. Mr. Jackson, when you go into class tonight to take evening school for the first time remember you're not the first master who stood there and felt afraid. Good night. Thank you, sir. Good night.

      When studying Lev Vygotsky's Zone of Proximal Development, it is easy for us to forget that the ZPD never stops. How in the scene highlighted here can we relate the ZPD to both Mr. Chips as previous Master, and can you see the translation from just this brief encounter to Mr. Jackson? Even as teachers we must remember that even we are still be taught, and teaching others as students, no matter what age they might be. This to me was a perfect scene that shows the transition from one teacher to another. This same care and modeling will most certainly trickle down into Mr. Jackson's classrooms.

    1. Are you taking dormitory inspection? Yes, shan't be long. Chips! Yes? Cough a little before you come to number . Now, Kathy, why? Jones Minor got a box from home today. Did you ever have a dormitory feast? Well, I do remember once, but that's beside the point. Is it? I think you're trying to pull Brookfield down stone by stone. Thought I heard a noise. Must have been the cat.

      I don't know of any term or theory that would relate to this scene but I appreciated the fact that Mr. Chips decided to choose his battles and not punish the students for staying up late.

    2. Your cap, sir! Let me get it for you, sir! No, sir, let me! No, sir, I'll pick it up! No, sir, I will! That will do, thank you! We're glad to help. Do you hear what I say? Go to your places.

It won't take a second, sir. Give that to me. What's your name? Colley, sir. Colley, back to your place. Back to your places, all of you. Yes, sir.

Thank you, sir. Sir? What is it? Is a pencil all right? Of course not, idiot! Who's an idiot? Silence. I'll have no more of it. No more silence, sir? Sir? Who was Queen Elizabeth's husband, sir?

Mr. Chipping?! I'm I'm sorry, sir. I'm afraid l It is just years ago this term since I had occasion to cane the entire lower school.

      Clip Even though the clip is in french I have highlighted the scene so you can read along. With this scene Mr. Chips does not yell and is shocked and visibly hurt when the headmaster says he will cane the students.

    3. Goodbye Mr. Chips Script

      Trailer for the Film Link Text

    4. Cheer up. I'm new too. It's not easy to begin with.

      In this scene there is a new student on the train to school and he is crying. At this point Mr. Chips is also new too and tries to comfort the boy to new avail. Mr.Chips trying to meet the safety needs of the new student who is alone and missing his family. By making the connection that the boy is not the only one who is new, Mr. Chips is trying to meet the need for belonging that Maslow states must be met.

    5. Mr. Chipping, we weren't expecting you. Good afternoon, Martin. Good afternoon, sir! Rigby, good afternoon. My governor asked to be remembered. He'll send some grouse. Thank you, Grayson. I shall appreciate that very much. Where did you go for holiday? I stayed home. Glad to see you. Thank you, Mills. The head said you couldn't come out, sir. Couldn't I? How do you do, sir? Collingwoods. You look more like your father every day. Good afternoon, sir. This is my brother. Miller? Miller secundus, eh? Yes, sir. Do they starve you at home, Miller? Hello, sir. Hello, Morgan. Still growing out of your trousers? Your grandfather's trousers were short. Runs in the family. Morgans are always three inches ahead of their trousers.

      Again unlike the other teacher who did not greet the students, Mr. Chips greets every student that he sees and makes connections with them that prove how much he cares and wonders about their lives. Even the ones that he does not remember he still tries to make a connection with them.

    6. Locked out. Well, I'll be Well, we'll have to wait. That's all there is to it. So you're a stinker? A stinker, sir? A new boy. That is what we call them here. "Stinkers."

      In this scene the new student is seen nervous and worried that he was missed the first day assembly but with noticing the student's anxiousness the teacher Mr. Chips smiles kindly at the boy and sets him at ease. Maslow's theory about deficiency needs is displayed in this scene with Mr. Chips trying to meet the safety and belonging need that felt by the new student.

    7. Knock again. What shall I say? Say, "Here I am, Mr. Chips." Here I am, Mr. Chips. What on earth? I can see you're there. What is all this? They told me you wanted to see me, sir. Oh, so they told you, did they?

      This reminded me of Erikson's stages of Psychosocial Development and his stage of Identity versus role confusion. At this point in the film a new kid is tricked by the older students to go and visit a teacher at his home. Hoping that the teacher would get mad and chase the student away which does not happen. The new student wants to feel a part of something and does what the other children wanted.

    8. Assembly. Assembly. Come on, you boys. Assembly. Hurry up, now. Assembly. Assembly. Assembly. Carrie primus. Carrie secundus. Danvers. Denville. Darby.

      In our classroom management book there was a question of how we as teachers would greet our students when they first arrive. I noticed that when the students attend assembly they must check in with a teacher but the teacher never greets them.

    9. If I've lost your friendship, there's little left that I value.

      First appearance of Chips' main teaching method. He values social interaction most, but is quite shy.

    10. Mr. Chipping wants to give a tea party every Sunday. What? It would be nice if you boys start the ball rolling next Sunday. Thank you very much. Thank you. You said : didn't you, dear? Oh, yes, of course.

      Katherine pushes Chips to befriend his students. She stated that he is shy in a previous scene, and, in Chip's first teaching scene, he is saddened that he believes he does not have their friendship. She helps him achieve the social goal that his shyness prevents. Anyone have ideas on terminology we could apply this to? I feel that it's important, but I don't know how to best relate it.

    11. Miss Kathy may I have the pleasure of this dance? I shall be happy, Mr. Chipping. Did I drink too much wine?

      Erikson's psychosocial stages: Intimacy vs Isolation He is somewhat isolated before Katherine due to his shyness

    12. Goodbye Mr. Chips Script

      Found a script!

    13. Do you suppose a person in middle age could start life over again and make a go of it?

      Erikson, Generativity vs stagnation in middle adulthood. Rather than guiding the next generation, generativity, Chips has to backtrack to Intimacy vs Isolation, because he has been somewhat isolated until he meets Katherine.

    14. He's just shy, Flora. And a little difficult to know, perhaps. I'm sorry for shy people. They must be awfully lonely sometimes. Chipping, you should have stayed. It was quite a party.

      Chipping's shyness leads to his isolation for some time, (Intimacy vs Isolation, Erikson) before Katherine breaks him from his shell. She inspires the social side of his teaching in later scenes.

    15. All that matters today is a fat banking account. You're trying to run the school like a factory for turning out moneymaking snobs! You've raised the fees, and the boys who really belong have been frozen out. Modern methods, intensive training, poppycock! Give a boy a sense of humor and proportion, and he'll stand up to anything. I'm not going to retire. You can do what you like about it.

      We could tie this in to unit two, the sections on social and moral development. Chips moves through the psychosocial stages of development throughout the film. In this scene, Chips is in the "Integrity vs Despair" stage of development. The headmaster believes him outdated and suggests he retire. Chips stands by what he values most in his teaching method, despite what his superiors say. He stands by his decision not to retire, but also understands that it is out of his control, he can be fired if the headmaster really wants him removed.
