20 Years Post the Fall of Babel...

20 Years Post the Fall of Babel: I grew up with "duck-and-cover" and Dr. Strangelove scenarios running through my young head. "The Day After" wasn't just a Sci-Fi movie based on a nuclear attack in Kansas. It was a very real,…

Perspective on CERN...

CERN is where the excitement is in particle physics, looking for the so-called God Particle. Now, I see there's a conspiracy theory on the God Particle and the Illuminati. Really? Don't we have Ron Paul/Alex Jones for that?

 

Really, this is a neat perspective on the LHC and its research. The rush to say something reminds me of the hulabaloo over "cold fusion," which if you just think about it,…

Beauty, Anti-Beauty, and the LHC...

Beauty, Anti-Beauty and the LHC: my goal of blogging about physics is twofold - one, to have a "water cooler" conversation, albeit monologue about the physics around everywhere - your mobile phone, climate change, the Internet; to make it less exotic and more ordinary. Two, to expose people of color to physics, particularly young people, and the possibility of pursuing careers in the…

Assassination Anxiety Contest Answers.

Ok. Since nobody had what it takes to win this thing the contest is officially over. Too bad. I had several contestants try to make a noble effort. So here are the questions along with the answers.

1. Name three members of Nomad Squadron.

(You comic fans should know this one.) Jugger Grimrod, Mescad, Montroc.

2. There are two characters answering to the name, The Night Stalker. One on TV. The other in real life. Who were they?

Positronium Laser...

Positronium is a form of antimatter: the post I've created does a far job of explaining the implications of this technology, which could have far reaching impact in communications down to your cell phone you may be viewing this post with.

Enjoying My Favorite Spec'ed Out Musicians Today

Editing with a Partner

I am going through my second science fiction novel chapter by chapter with my writing partner. The experience has been very positive. The first positive is she understood what I was doing with race in the book. I am still struggling with the point of view. There are two main characters but only one voice. I have written the book from two points of view but it felt really awkward, so my latest version had just one. However, my partner suggests that I return to two points of view. My potential…

More Efficient Solar Cells...

Before you count solar out: scientists are working towards it being more efficient to manufacture and mass produce. Anything that can reduce our carbon footprint (ironic, since you kind of burn carbon to make solar), plus reduce our dependency on oil as a power source is forward-thinking I can appreciate.

I Can't Take Credit for the Title...

I detect a hint of frustration in detecting the Higgs Boson. Once called the "God Particle" by Leon Lederman, he's "using the Lord's name in vain" expressing his frustration on the amount of money being (and been) spent trying to find the theoretical particle that if discovered, will change the fundamental understanding of physics and the universe (especially String Theory), which a…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
