### Will Google "Penguin" ruin my Instructables' ranking?

I recently came across an article about Google Penguin. I also recently started sharing my Instructables' posts on Pinterest, Twitter, and Google+, and am confused. There are many spammy websites that take the info form my I'bles, repost it, and also leave a link to the I'ble (most of them). Example: https://www.google.com/search?q=Finger+Mallet+from+a+Tree+Branch&oq;=Finger+Mallet+from+a+Tree+Branch&aqs;=chrome..69i57j69i60j69i59&sourceid;=chrome&ie;=UTF-8 I really like Pinterest, and am okay with G+ and Twitter. I think most of my Instructables show as the first clickable option (rank), since most of my Instructables are ORIGINAL (until the Youtube plagiarizers find about them) things that haven't been posted before online... Will sharing on social media affect this?

### Operational Amplifier input voltage affects other input?

Hello, I have created a simple circuit where 2 10k resistors make a voltage divider. Supply voltage is 12.5V and if I measure in between the 2 resistors, I'm getting 6.3V. Great! Now I connect that 6.3V to the +input of an OpAmp. Result: the value is still 6.3V. Great! (The OpAmp is also fed with 12.5V) Now I connect the -input of the OpAmp to the supply voltage (12.5V). The voltage in between both resistors suddenly changes from 6.3V to 10.1V. NOT Great! Now I connect the -input of the OpAmp to ground (0V). The voltage in between both resistors changes from 6.3V to 2.4V. ?! The output of the OpAmp is not connected to anything. I thought that OpAmp inputs, in theory, have infinite resistance? The datasheet of this OpAmp (LT1253) sais the input resistance should be 10Mohm I also tested this same thing with the LT1497 and the results are the same. When the -input of the  OpAmp was connected to 12.5V, I measured the current going into that pin, 39mA!! (Only measured on the LT1253) What's the problem here? Are both OpAmps broken? Or is there something about the way OpAmps work, that I clearly don't understand?

### What factors affect signal strength?

I made a signal boosting rig out of cardboard and aluminum for my router for my PS3 to access it ('cause I can't move the router in my current situation). So anyways it started out boosting a 17% average signal strength to a strong 50%. But now a couple of months later, it's maxing out at 23% and it's been happening for a couple of weeks now. Also, my ps3 absolutely refuses to work with anything below 25%. So what changed? I haven't moved the rig since I set it up and none of the furniture has moved either. The only factor I can think of is the changing of the seasons. Anything else that could of caused this?

### How does the Bernoulli effect affect the ground effect?

I have been wondering about how ekronoplans work with consideration of the Bernoulli effect. Ekranoplans such as the Caspian Sea Monster often have there engines or propellers pointing on a downward angle, this is to push as much air under the wings as possible, in doing this they are forcing the air into a constriction being the wing and the ground, now why doesn't this cause a vacuum pulling the craft down?

### Does the current of a USB phone charger affect LEDs powered by it?

Here's the story: I was reading Instructables one day, and I had a BRAINBLAST. If I were to add ambient LED lighting to my room, a USB phone charger would be a relatively convenient power source! So I got to work. However, while using online resistor calculators to determine the resistor suitable for this project, I noticed that they did not require the source current. This got me pondering. So the question is: Does the source current matter? Additional Information: 2 USB phone chargers Charger 1:     5V 1000mA Charger 2:     5V 800mA Resistor: 1.5ohm 2W Metal Film Resistor LEDs in parallel LED:     3.5V 25mA Help would be greatly appreciated!    :)

### Does the air disruption truely affect energy usage in this particular situation?

I was reading the comments in this Ible: https://www.instructables.com/id/Parasitic-Wind-Turbine/ and they said that having the turbine in the way of the airflow would create more of a load on the A/C thereby causing it to use more energy. I don't understand it in this case. I can see how putting it in line, mounted to the exhaust port, thereby blocking the exhaust would restrict the airflow. I don't see how using the already exhausted air would restrict the airflow. That, IMO, would be like saying that when you are stopped at a red light and another car is behind you, your engine is working harder because that car is behind your exhaust. Am I thinking right on this?

### Does use of a sponsor's products affect contest judging/winner selection?

Hi, My understanding of contests (from the few that I've entered) is that how exactly judging occurs and winners are selected can vary a bit. The judging panel can be make up of Instructables staff, respected members of the community, and/or staff from the sponsor - with the ultimate decision about winners being up to either Instructables or the Sponsor (please correct me if that understanding is misguided). My question, then, is whether use of a sponsor's products in the Instructable being entered in the contest affects any stage of the judging process (selection of finalist, judges' scoring criteria, selection of winners). To give a concrete example - I have a current entry in the Microcontroller Contest, which is sponsored by Radio Shack; but my entry almost exclusively uses parts from SparkFun. It seems like this would create a conflict of interest and make it difficult for a Radio Shack employee to be an objective judge - ideally they'd want to promote their own products and not a competitor's. I tried to dig through the rules and small print for the contest but couldn't find anything definitive either way - nothing saying that this is included as a judging criteria, but also nothing saying that it isn't. Any and all straightforward answers would be appreciated - not speculating about conspiracy theories here or accusing the site of selling out - just curious how this process works!
