October 28, 2009 - And for the third time I cleared my schedule because the roofers said they would start work today, and for the third time they forgot to show up...
October 26, 2009 - I just heard that the LHC is being tested with particles
again for the first time since last year's malfunction. Could we hope that some new physics results will follow soon?
October 19, 2009 - Well, I cleared my schedule for today because the roofers made an appointment to re-do my roof today. Unfortunately they never showed up and didn't explain why...
October 12, 2009 - HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
October 7, 2009 - I just want to let my physics & astronomy friends and colleague know there is a site for helping to classify galaxies from the SDSS survey. The link is http://www.galaxyzoo.org/classify
October 3, 2009 - It looks like I will be spending the entire weekend cleaning my patio - which means relocating my entire bonsai collection for the rest of the month. All because the house is being re-roofed...
September 16, 2009 - I decided to go into business for myself for a while, offering consulting services in science and technology. So if you know anyone with a business or an organization that needs more than just the basics, send them my way. As most of you know by now, I can handle just about any task in programming,electronics,mathematics, or mathematical sciences.
September 11, 2009 - In response to several requests for information about me for articles on my book, I have added a biography page
and a trivia page
to my website. And for those of you who are interested, close personal friends and family can read my personal blog
(just e-mail me for the password).
September 8,2009 - Just a quick reminder that now that classes are back in session, I am available for tutoring physics and math at any level, as well as chemistry and engineering at the undergraduate level. However this term I have a busy schedule with other jobs as well, so appointments are limited and will be first-come-first-served.
September 7. 2009 - There was an interesting new result
released by the BELLE experiment. In the decay of a B-meson to an excited Kaon and leptons, there is an angular asymmetry not predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics. It could be the first sign of some interesting new physics, or it could be an experimental anomaly that means nothing. Only time and more data will tell for sure...
September 4, 2009 - And for those of you who claimed I couldn't quit classwork cold-turkey, you were right. This semester I will be auditing about four or five senior engineering courses on electronics and circuit analysis.
