“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” ― Albert Einstein Today is Friday….thank you, thank you, thank you! The week is at an end, and (if you couldn’t tell) I am grateful […]Read More I Live My Daydreams in Music
I came across this today, and I couldn’t resist. I had to share. The discovery, Lukin said, runs contrary to decades of accepted wisdom about the nature of light. Photons have long been described as massless particles which don’t interact with each other — shine two laser beams at each other, he said, and they […]Read More Science is Cool
This is not my normal book review…for a couple of reasons. Discovering Joye is a book about discovering Joye Kanelakos’s poetry and melding it seamlessly with Jim Stovall’s own story. Both of these are powerful and moving on their own, but together it is just…wow. Truthfully, I’m pretty familiar with both the poetry and the […]Read More Discovering Joye…This May Be the Coolest Thing Ever
Did you think I had stopped reading? Nope, not me. I’m always reading something or other. Calculated in Death, by J.D. Robb in my growing “have -read”. I love this series. Set in the not so distant future, Eve Dallas is a homicide detective in New York City. I’ve lost count of the number of books […]Read More Calculated In Death
Yesterday marked the beginning of the annual Greek Festival at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I am just making my way around the world this month! This is family tradition for us. My mother’s family is from Greece, near Sparta. (Yeah, we’re totally awesome like that.) Greek food is comfort […]Read More Greek Festival! And Now A Food Coma….
Today I discovered PeaceOneDay.org, an organization dedicated to spreading peace throughout the world. Tomorrow is Peace One Day 2013. Pretty good timing, right? I almost missed it! Last year 4% of the world’s population was aware of Peace One Day…that is 280 million people in 198 countries. (McKinsey did a report for them) Out of […]Read More Peace One Day 2013 Who Will You Make Peace With?
This weekend my nephew and I spent our time watching movies and playing video games…it was pretty awesome. No, I’m not talking about who did better at the video games. (Hint: Not me!) We kicked things off with lunch before doing a little shopping for his birthday and heading over to see The Mortal Instruments: […]Read More Mortal Instruments: City of Bones…the Movie is Not the Book
Oh My, A LEGO Sherlock. LEGOs and the BBC’s Sherlock…these are a few of my favorite things. This definitely needs to happen!Read More Oh My, A LEGO Sherlock.
Ah, Scotfest. This is one of my favorite Tulsa events. Why? (No, it isn’t just the kilts. Although, they don’t hurt.) Tulsa does a great job of pulling together some fantastic music, great food and drink, and a bit of shopping thrown in for fun. (because you’re not going to spend enough money buying cd’s, food […]Read More Scotfest….Some Things Are Just Better In Kilts
I mentioned this guy in my post about The Nerdist. His name is Bobak Ferdowsi, and he became famous during the Mars Curiosity landing. Did he become well-known for his astounding mind? Well, no, it was his hair that grabbed the attention of a nation. However, it managed to do something awesome, it made science […]Read More The Mohawk Guy – Bobak Ferdowsi
