Hall House (Bethel, Maine)

The Hall House is a historic house at 10 Kilborn Street in Bethel, Maine. Built in 1910 by Dana and Alfaretta Hall, this house is a rare and distinctive local example of Craftsman style in consideration of its setting in a small Maine town. Although it is predominantly Craftsman in style, it structurally harkens to the traditional connected farmsteads of rural New England; the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. Little is known about their reasons for building this house, it was built to serve as either a retirement home or as an "in-town" house for the Halls, who were known to farm elsewhere in the county. The house was built over a three-month period in the summer of 1910; the house is a wood frame structure 1-1/2 stories in height, clad in shingles, with a hipped standing seam metal roof, resting on a foundation of stone and stone-faced concrete. The main block of the house is connected to a similarly-styled carriage house via a single-story hyphen, fronted by a porch, reminiscent of typical New England connected farmsteads.

Its main facade is three bays wide, with a slightly-projecting tower-like section in the right bay, which has its own low-pitch pyramidal roof, The center section has a sash window, the left bay has a recessed porch providing access to the entrance. A hip-roof dormer projects from the roof above the main facade. A porch on the east side wraps around to the north side of the house, separated from the tower projection by a fieldstone chimney. A rectangular projection intrudes on the porch, topped by a gable dormer; the carriage house has a similar low-pitch hip roof to that found on the main house, with a gable end above the barn-style door, centered on the southern facade. The roof is topped by a square cupola with small windows on each side, its own pyramidal roof; the front gable provides space for a hay door above the main entrance. The interior of the house is trimmed in varnished pine; the kitchen has original cabinetry, there is a builtin buffet in the dining room and a bookcase in the living room.

The interior of the tower projection provides a small light-filled sitting area. National Register of Historic Places listings in Oxford County, Maine

KSBJ

KSBJ is a non-commercial Contemporary Christian music radio station based in Humble, broadcasting on 89.3 MHz FM in the Greater Houston area. KSBJ is operated by the KSBJ Educational Foundation. KSBJ is a non-profit ministry supported by listeners and is led by a diverse board of directors from across the greater Houston area. KSBJ can be heard online at KSBJ.org, through the KSBJ app, on 89.3 FM, 96.9 FM, 99.9, 92.3, 92.5, 89.7 and 99.9. KSBJ Educational Foundation operates NGEN Radio, a Christian hip-hop and pop format broadcasting on 91.7 KXNG, a non-profit listener supported radio station in Houston, Texas. KSBJ signed on the air July 1982, with Buddy Holiday at the helm, it began life as a Christian Rock station, but moved toward the current Contemporary Christian and Worship format early on. KSBJ operated at 88.1 MHz, but changed frequency to the current 89.3 MHz in 1987, as a part of a frequency switch with KFTG in Santa Fe. Over the years, KSBJ has expanded its ministry exponentially, first acquiring low power translators in order to cover more potential listeners in areas outside of the main KSBJ signal range acquiring full power facilities, beginning with KIOX-FM in El Campo.

On September 1, 2017, KSBJ filed a minor modification to move the signal from its longtime transmission site near Splendora, Texas to its current site in North Houston. The ERP was lowered from the maximum 100 kilowatts to the current 87 kilowatts, as well as a decrease in height above average terrain. While this improved the signal in Houston itself, as well as the immediate suburbs in Harris County, KSBJ was all but lost in areas such as Livingston and Huntsville, Texas; this was remedied with the purchase of KETX-FM and KSHN during the summer of 2019, returning KSBJ programming to areas lost in the move of the main signal, plus areas that KSBJ had little to no previous reach.

Hadamard transform

The Hadamard transform is an example of a generalized class of Fourier transforms. It performs an orthogonal, involutive, linear operation on 2m real numbers; the Hadamard transform can be regarded as being built out of size-2 discrete Fourier transforms, is in fact equivalent to a multidimensional DFT of size 2 × 2 × ⋯ × 2 × 2. It decomposes an arbitrary input vector into a superposition of Walsh functions; the transform is named for the French mathematician Jacques Hadamard, the German-American mathematician Hans Rademacher, the American mathematician Joseph L. Walsh; the Hadamard transform Hm is a 2m × 2m matrix, the Hadamard matrix, that transforms 2m real numbers xn into 2m real numbers Xk. The Hadamard transform can be defined in two ways: recursively, or by using the binary representation of the indices n and k. Recursively, we define the 1 × 1 Hadamard transform H0 by the identity H0 = 1, define Hm for m > 0 by: H m = 1 2 where the 1/√2 is a normalization, sometimes omitted. For m > 1, we can define Hm by: H m = H 1 ⊗ H m − 1 where ⊗ represents the Kronecker product.

Thus, other than this normalization factor, the Hadamard matrices are made up of 1 and −1. Equivalently, we can define the Hadamard matrix by its -th entry by writing k = ∑ i = 0 m − 1 k i 2 i = k m − 1 2 m − 1 + k m − 2 2 m − 2 + ⋯ + k 1 2 + k 0 n = ∑ i = 0 m − 1 n i 2 i = n m − 1 2 m − 1 + n m − 2 2 m − 2 + ⋯ + n 1 2 + n 0 where the kj and nj are the binary digits of k and n, respectively. Note that for the element in the top left corner, we define: k = n = 0. In this case, we have: k, n = 1 2 m 2 ∑ j k j n j This is the multidimensional 2 × 2 × ⋯ × 2 × 2 DFT, normalized to be unitary, if the inputs and outputs are regarded as multidimensional arrays indexed by the nj and kj, respectively; some examples of the Hadamard matrices follow. H 0 = + H 1 = 1 2 H 2 = 1 2 (
