Topic: Blending


In the News (Wed 21 Aug 19)

  
  Teaching Blending
Where blending becomes crucial is in decoding printed words from their spellings.
For example, in dream, /drea/ is the body of the syllable and /m/ is the coda.
This is because onsets are often quite distorted during blending.

 Wastewater Blending   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Others acknowledge that blending is not the discharge of raw sewage, but argue that blended waste streams will result in the discharge of more pathogens, creating risks to human health.
Even if wastewater blending is demonstrated to be protective of human health, but uncertainty remains as to its legality, this leads to the question of whether or not blending should be available as a wastewater management tool.
If blending can be protective, then prohibiting blending may be a waste of scarce resources at a time when municipalities are already over-burdened by the need to upgrade their wastewater infrastructure.

 Tips for Crafting with Blending Chalks
Blending Chalks are the perfect choice for coloring in stamped designs, shading in areas, creating backgrounds, highlighting cards, scrapbooks, collages, journals, altered books, die cuts and anything else your imagination can dream up.
A blending pen is a marker that is filled with a clear blending fluid.
Either use the blending pen directly on a surface already colored with blending chalk to spread the color, or dip the pen directly into the chalk and then apply it to your surface.

 BLENDING AND METAPHOR
Blending theory suggests that selective projection from the two input spaces yields an image which is inconsistent with our understanding of the source space–two people whose presence somehow causes a ship to list to one side–but that the web of underlying connections allow us to draw inferences from the blend nonetheless.
In the blending framework the notion of anomaly can be defined with greater subtlety and specificity: the network of conceptual connections which comprises the meaning of the utterance includes a counterpart relation between entities which we know to be incompatible in some important sense.
For the purposes of this blend we are not 'construing' (in the sense of Langacker, 1987) the languages of the philosophers as, specifically, English and German.

 Shape blending
This repeated application of blending also leads to a qualitative model description in (h) (the labels in the boxes are hand generated).
This paper investigates a simple use of shape blending, where the blending is performed along the primary "axis" of a shape primitive (superquadric ellipsoids and tori).
The view of blending is also a bit different, where now, holes are viewed as simply a special case of an object "part".

 Espresso Blending
Blending is necessary for espresso since a single origin will lack the complexity desired.
The majority of the blend is made up of a base of coffees from Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Peru, Panama or any other origins that contribute a non-overbearing flavor while still contributing to the body and sweetness of the coffee.
To perfect the espresso blend by altering the roast to achieve the perfect crema, flavor, acidity, body and aftertaste takes time and patience, but is a rewarding and educational experience.

 Grady, Oakley, and Coulson: Blending and Metaphor
Since the blend is probably novel at the time it is uttered, this example illustrates the conception of blending as an on-line, real-time process that creates new meaning through the juxtaposition of familiar material.
Blending theory suggests that selective projection from the two input spaces yields an image which is inconsistent with our understanding of the source space—two people whose presence is likely to cause a ship to list to one side—but that the web of underlying connections allow us to draw inferences from the blend nonetheless.
Metaphorical blends, on the other hand, involve a different kind of fusion, in which certain very salient aspects of input domain structure are prohibited from entering the blend, and in which some salient structure in the blended space is prevented from floating back to the inputs.

 Chapter 6 - OpenGL Programming Guide
The blend factors are assumed to lie in the range [0,1]; after the color values in the source and destination are combined, they're clamped to the range [0,1].
Blending is also used for antialiasing, which is a rendering technique to reduce the jagged appearance of primitives drawn on a raster screen.
With this specialized blending function, the final color is the sum of the destination color and the scaled source color; the scale factor is the smaller of either the incoming source alpha value or one minus the destination alpha value.

 Blending Basics
Before blending any high-quality coffees you should know the flavors of the individual coffees and have some goal for an ideal cup that cannot be attained by a single origin or single degree of roast.
Blends with more than 5 coffees are considered to be fanciful, or indulgent, or confused by more than a few expert coffee tradespeople I know.
Filter coffees may be blended for complexity or for balance, but an espresso blend usually must be blended for balance or particular varietal qualities that would be favorable in a filter coffee brew might overwhelm the espresso extract.

 BLENDING AND CONCEPTUAL INTEGRATION
Blending is governed by uniform structural and dynamic principles and by optimality constraints.
The theory of conceptual blending has been applied by scores of researchers, in cognitive neuroscience, cognitive science, psychology, linguistics, music theory, poetics, mathematics, divinity, semiotics, theory of art, psychotherapy, artificial intelligence, political science, discourse analysis, philosophy, anthropology, and the study of gesture and of material culture.

 PolyOne Corporation - Specialty Resin - Blending
Blending resins, also known as extender resins, are used as a formulating tool in the development and production of plastisols.
However, as a general rule, blending resins should not be used in applications thinner than twice the average particle size of the blending resin used in the plastisol.
Typical usage of blending resins is 20 to 30 phr, as a replacement for an equivalent amount of dispersion resins.

 Blending - Globetech Services, Inc.
Flow rates are limited by line size, the capacity of the blend component pumps feeding the blender, and (because blending is proportional), by the rate of the slowest component stream.
This blending method uses a "sandwich" blending approach introducing a base component into the line first, followed by a mixture of base component and additives, then finishing with the balance of the base component(s).
Blending rates are limited only by line sizes and the capacity of the pumps feeding blending components the blender.

 Mixing and Blending Systems
Particularly for companies with very frequent product changes or with many products that have to be prepared using dry substances and ingredients out of small containers (bags, bottles etc.) it may well be sensible to use a batch mixing plant for the preparation of all types of syrup.
Continuous blending of the various flavor concentrates with water and liquid sugar into a finished beverage corresponding to the recipe takes place directly in-line, without an intermediate syrup stage.
This type of plant can be designed for as many different concentrates as desired and serves primarily for the blending of finished beverages, but can also be used for the continuous mixing of syrup base.

 Aromatic Blending of Essential Oils
Aromatic blending for the sheer pleasure of the aroma is a combination of creativity and science.
Blending does not have hard and fast rules that must be followed to create that wonderful blend that you’ll love for a lifetime.
Start off your blending experiments by creating blends that are made up in the following ratio (you do not have to be exact – this is just a guideline to get you started): 30% of the oils are top notes, 50% are middle notes, and 20% are base notes.

 Why Blending Is Essential
We blend because we don't have time to chew on the huge pile of nutrients we need to stay healthy in our stressful, polluted world.
We eat blended fruit instead of ice-cream, blended cashew yogurt (dried) in place of chocolate, blended greens and raw soups.
Blending helps the body to clean itself and thus it restores health much quicker than just eating the foods as salads, yet it does not overtax the system with the rapid cleansing action of juices.

 Alpha Blending
Alpha blending is used to create a translucent fragment that lets some of the previously stored color value in the framebuffer to be combined with the new fragment's color value.
Blending occurs after your scene has been rasterized and converted to fragments, but just before the final pixels are drawn in the framebuffer.
This blending function takes all the color from the source and blends it with none of the color from the destination.

 UDN - Two - VertexBlendingTutorial
In a nutshell, vertex blending can be used to blend one material on your mesh into another, or into nothing, along predefined vertices using a method called vertex painting.
Blending from one material to another using the same UV mapping.
Otherwise, the "blending" will be disabled while it's being hit by a dynamic light- for example, firing a weapon next to a mesh will disable the blending until you stop firing.

 Cornflower Blue : Alpha Blending, Part 3
In part 1 I talked about the blend function that is used to combine two colors.
Most of what I learned about alpha blending is from working on a shooter, which tend to be very full of explosions and flashy things and not much else.
Doing normal blending instead of additive blending for those also gave the artist more intuitive control over the final output, which was useful.

 NeHe Productions: OpenGL Lesson #08
Blending is used to combine the color of a given pixel that is about to be drawn with the pixel that is already on the screen.
How the colors are combined is based on the alpha value of the colors, and/or the blending function that is being used.
The way I do blending may not be the best way, but it works, and the object appears to look like it should when lighting is enabled.

 Therapeutic Blending of Essential Oils
Therapeutic blending concentrates more on the therapeutic result than on the aroma of the blend, but naturally it’s important to create a therapeutic blend that is pleasing in aroma.
As another example, you would obviously not create an arthritis blend that includes peanut oil (a carrier oil used to dilute essential oils and is reported to provide benefit in arthritis blends) if you are allergic to peanuts.
When creating therapeutic blends, it is also important to consider all the therapeutic actions you are seeing and avoid oils that clash with your desired goals.

 Unlock Better Blending
The Johanson Indices are useful for predicting the tendency of blended ingredients to demix and, more generally, for selecting and designing material-handling equipment.
Using the measured values of the indices as a guideline, it is possible to evaluate the ingredients in a mixture for their susceptibility to potential demixing mechanisms.
The four most-common blending demixing mechanisms are angle of repose, sifting, fluidization, and air currents.

 Digital Blending
There are now three different approaches that you can try so as to blend these images together to increase apparent dynamic range.
The only drawback with this method is that it requires sometimes finiky painting, and this can become difficult if the dark and light areas aren't large and easily paintable.
Incidentally, once I had blended the example above I found that there was quite a bit of flare in the frame from shooting almost directly into the setting sun.

 Wastewater Blending   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Blending is a method used by some wastewater management plants to address excess wet weather flows resulting from heavy rain or snow melts.
“Blending, while deemed by ORSANCO as appropriate policy that serves the interests of reducing environmental and public health risks on the Ohio River, may not be wise in all places and under all conditions,” said Vicory.
He stated that various factors, such as the presence of drinking water intakes and the potential recreational use of the receiving water, must be evaluated site-by-site to determine the case for blending.
