My new article for Decoded Science, "Potential New Algorithm to Calculate the Cube Root of a Number", reviews a claim of a new, improved algorithm to calculate the cubic root of a number.

This story has a fascinating sub-text: will a reputable mathematics journal, or a professional mathematician, review and critique Mr. Nirbhay Singh Nahar's work?

On the home front: before publishing and promoting that article, I had staked my copyright claim to my original artwork by publishing it here.

Magnificently created in Excell, my illustration depicts the root of "y = x^3".

Self Promotion

As is my custom, I also promote my article in DeHaan Services ("Possible New Solution for Cubic Roots") and in my Xanga blog ("Nahar Touts a Better Cube Root Function").

Writing Tip

Some sites publish the article with the title that the author provides. That title usually becomes part of the URL and may become a hidden "tag"; both are used by search engines.

Some sites, or their editors, change the title. Presumably the goal is either to pique the interest of a human reader, or to better align with Internet searches. Even if the title is changed, however, if you enter the article into the site's online editor, your original title becomes part of the URL and any hidden tags.

My first writing tip today is: try hard to craft your title both for human interest and for search engines.

My second writing tip is: trust your editor if the title is changed.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
