Three Years on and its “PBS Space (and) Time” What went wrong?

This was a great series of YouTube videos from PBS Digital Studios.  The  <15 minute video on the ‘Speed of Light’ (PBS2) contains most of the essential Maxwellian physics of Jackson’s  Classical Electrodynamics, the huge volume that still haunts the memory of many a physic student. That’s how rapid-fire this series is!  However, for the …

There are ~190,000 physicists in The USA, and going down. Of those physicists only 49, 999 are women.*

190,000 US physicists who do science and teach. 49,999 US women physicists who do research and teach.  In the World, only ~500,000 physicists. "This graph and data are free to use" - APS * The asterisks and footnotes hit hardest.  It stood at 50,000 women physicists until it was pointed out by herself that Prof. Dr. …

Scientific Research

So begins the greatest book on Spacetime/Gravitation yet written.  Dedicated to those who made it possible, the citizens of America. No cynicism. No sneer. No arrogance.  If you believe in democracy, you believe in the people to make the right decisions with the true numbers and risks. Now, or in the future.  Gravitation, written in …

The Far West American Physical Society

Encountered throughout nature and industry are fluid flows containing particles, and understanding or manipulating the ultimate arrangement of particles in the flow is a paramount goal. Here we expose a mechanism for particle localization that arises from interaction of the intrinsic inertia of particle and fluid by visualizing the motion of particles in laminar stirred …

The *NEW* Medical Sciences: The Million Women Study of The National Health Service (UK)

The 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony (above).  Americans may have been befuddled(?) by this tribute, and the comments by HRH Elizabeth II on honoring her Kingdom's National Health Service (NHS).  It was the National Health Service that, in part, brought down the infant morbidity and mortality rate in the UK  following WWII. What is the Million Women …

The *NEW* Medical Sciences: ‘Long-Range Temporal Correlations Reflect Treatment Response in Electroencephalogram of Patients with Infantile Spasms’, Rachel J. Smith, et. al.

A significant new publication on a rare disease.  It is part a stream of 21st Century medical insight and research: scientific, thorough, and with a new understanding of the limitations placed on medical research with limited sample sizes. In particular, this publication uses an unprecedented level of statistical analysis that appears to be... flawless.   It arms physicians, practitioners, and …

Asst. Prof. Dr. Ryan Foley on the role of non-scientists in the New Gravitation Science! Dateline: Santa Cruz, CA 16OCT17

UC-Santa Cruz << A small team led by Ryan Foley, an assistant professor of astronomy and astrophysics at UC Santa Cruz, was the first to find the source of the gravitational waves, located in a galaxy 130 million light-years away called NGC 4993. Foley's team captured the first images of the event with the 1-meter …
