Short Comments on Mathematics from a New Member, by Jonathan Covington.

Abstract.  To be announced.  

Image Processing from a live Webcam using Mathematica, by Nicholas Mecholsky.

Abstract.   We'll see an application of Mathematica's ImageConvolve that allowed a continuous logging of the water level in a meter that was monitored from a webcam. Using only the web address of the webcam and Mathematica's powerful built-in image processing, we can see how one might build a quick application that has real value.

Applications and Uses of CellChangeTimes[] - II, by Dave Vasholz.

Abstract.   We'll continue to discuss various interesting implementations and applications of this useful function.

2.  Mathematica Gems and Discoveries

    Sharing of Mathematica programming oddities
    Applications of Mathematica to some areas of science
