Not long ago, taking a shower, my towel fell off of the half-wall where I usually put it so I can access it when I’m done. It had fallen behind the wall, and as I was reaching to retrieve it, my “no-slip” mat slipped, sending me down. The fall was not injurious, but it was bad and could have easily resulted in far more harm than it did. I laid there for maybe ten minutes before recovering sufficiently to slowly try to get up again.
How about if we think of Thanksgiving as a celebration of the gentle spirit of the Native people who sacrificed to let us build our nation?
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.
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.
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.
Flying pigs come from Cincinnati, Ohio, the chili capital of the world. What, you didn’t really think it was Texas, did you? There was a time when more chili flowed out of Cincinnati than all of Texas combined (I cannot say if this is still true), but Cincinnati chili is not anything like Texas chili.
I’m here with a warm spot on my lap created by my cat’s butt as she is keeping me company, but the only human voices I hear are from the Blues Brothers as they play on my old computer. Don’t a
For years, I’ve punished myself for not forcing myself to just sit down and read at least the abstract. Was I really unable to do that much?
It seems as though we are heading back to the day when the bosses are the wealthy, that is, those who could afford the higher full degrees, while the rest are stuck in the positions in which they
The question becomes if we should require vehicle inspections or not. There is something to be said for intruding on personal rights, but what of personal responsibilities? What of the requirement to make reasonable effort to be sure your vehicle doesn’t suddenly lose a tire on the highway causing a pile-up as it suddenly swerves unexpectedly?
