Compassionate Science 11/24/21

the office assistants out front asked me to field a telephone call.  The supervisor (one of those self-important and less than bright people) was on another call and they wanted this caller to get help.  The caller was having problems with her paint.

Quantum Tunneling 11/23/21

Schrödinger’s equation followed known equations from wave mechanics and well-established mathematical terms for kinetic and potential energy which is why it is so powerful.  The reason some physicists today can’t accept it is because the predictions that come out of it seem to us logically impossible, but, the truly amazing thing is that every one of these seemingly impossible predictions that can be studied have been from physicists far more clever than I, has been demonstrated experimentally. 

Graphing 11/22/21

But that’s not what this advertisement did either.  No, this advertisement actually did something that is very common in statistics, namely, reset the baseline.  See, the graph’s base was not set to zero.  The baseline was quite high (I don’t have an exact number).  The graph was set to the low point in the fluctuations rather than zero.  This has the effect of making those relatively small fluctuations seem enormous. 

Research 10/25/21

what drives the desire, indeed the need to continue to perform research?  What I’m working on today takes me back to my programming days (only using Python instead of Fortran, but still utilizing that aforementioned algorithm).  If it works, it will shift the paradigm of crime prediction software, but it’ll never be put into practice as I lack the corporate sponsors to be taken seriously
