Previously Unknown Letter Reveals Einstein's Thinking On Bees, Birds and Physics

The 1949 letter by the physicist and Nobel laureate discusses bees, birds and whether new physics principles could come from studying animal senses. Phys.Org reports: The previously unpublished letter was shared with researchers by Judith Davys -- Einstein had addressed it to her late husband, radar researcher Glyn Davys. RMIT's Associate Professor Adrian Dyer has published significant studies into bees and is the lead author of the new paper on Einstein's letter, published in the Journal of Com...

Salesforce is bringing drag and drop interactive components to its low-code toolkit

Low code and no code tools abound these days, as the industry attempts to give non-technical end users the ability to create applications without code (or very little anyway). Salesforce has been a big proponent of this approach to help reduce the complexity of working on its platform, and today the CRM giant announced a new wrinkle: drag and drop interactive components. These new components allow users to create more sophisticated kinds of interactions, says Ryan Ellis, SVP for product manageme...

Gender fluidity and Autism open gates of power for women

James Maher Photography US scientists are scared to talk about differences between male and female brains, probably because it will get them fired. The loudest voices say there cannot be male and female brains because there are women and men who think in similar ways. While universities in the US squelch ideas they don’t like, the rest of the world accepts the scientific theory that there is a male and female brain, and Autistic is the word to describe women who think the same way men do. ...

Biden's menthol cigarette prohibition is so obviously stupid and wrong it boggles the mind

President Joe Biden speaks on the North Lawn of the White House on April 27, 2021 in Washington, DC. Drew Angerer/Getty Images Biden claimed to regret how his drug warrior legacy led to mass incarceration. And yet he's banning menthol cigarettes, which are popular in Black communities. But the prohibition will lead to harsher policing in those communities. It's like the president hasn't learned a thing from the failed and evil War on Drugs. This is an opinion column. The thou...

Does science tell the truth?

What is truth? This is a very tricky question, trickier than many would like to admit.Science does arrive at what we can call functional truth, that is, when it focuses on what something does as opposed to what something is. We know how gravity operates, but not what gravity is, a notion that has changed over time and will probably change again.The conclusion is that there are not absolute final truths, only functional truths that are agreed upon by consensus. The essential difference is that s...

‘Healing’ Crystals are Having a Pandemic Moment

The Washington Post's Amanda McCracken recently wrote about the impact (or not) of crystals. You can decide for yourself. When my friend, a massage therapist, learned I was pregnant last winter, he gifted me a stunning large, clear piece of quartz he had bought during a recent crystal-foraging trip to Brazil. I welcomed the gift and the positive protective energy my friend said he could feel with his hands. I even placed it on the dinner table the night of my induction. It couldn’t...

We Know So Much. And So Little

On my run to Boulder on Saturday, I listened to The God Equation: The Quest for a Theory of Everything by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. My run was about four hours long, which was roughly the time it took to listen to this spectacular book. The quick summary from Wikipedia follows: Kaku explores the history of unification theories of Physics starting with Newton’s law of universal gravitation which unified our experience of gravity on Earth and the motions of the celestial bodies to Eins...

Einstein's desk and what it suggests about clutter and intelligence

This photo of Albert Einstein's desk depicts his office exactly as he left it before his death in 1955. Is there a link between being messy and creative, clutter and intelligence? Causation or correlation? Researchers have explored this very issue but, mostly, I just wanted to post the wonderful photo of Einstein's desk. — Read the rest

Why Aristotle didn't invent modern science

Modern science requires scrutinizing the tiniest of details and an almost irrational dedication to empirical observation. Many scientists believe that theories should be "beautiful," but such argumentation is forbidden in modern science. Neglecting beauty would be a step too far for Aristotle. Modern science has done astounding things: sending probes to Pluto, discerning the nature of light, vaccinating the globe. Its power to plumb the world's inner workings, many scientists and philosophers...

Stephen Hawking — A Life In Ideas Obscured By Celebrity

Hawking was no Newton. He said so himself. At a White House event in 1998, First Lady Hillary Clinton read a question from the Internet: “How does it feel to be compared to Einstein and Newton?” He replied, “I think to compare me to Newton and Einstein is media hype.” Then again, as Charles Seife demonstrates in Hawking Hawking, he “worked very hard to cultivate” these comparisons. – New York Review of Books

The universe has a Hubble constant problem

The Hubble constant is used to estimate the rate of expansion of the universe.There are two different ways to calculate its value, but they give different results.The difference may give physicists an opening to find new cosmic laws, but there is huge uncertainty about which path to take in finding them. There's something wrong with the universe. Okay, it's not the universe that's the problem; it's our understanding of the universe. The problem lies with cosmology—the branch of science that s...

COVID Vaccine: Where does freedom end and civic duty begin?

Now that the vaccine is becoming widely available, why do so many insist on not taking it? As different episodes in history have illustrated — including the building of an atomic bomb in the U.S. – true freedom is to choose to place the well-being of your family, community, and country above your own personal values. We shouldn't confuse the privilege of choice with a threat to personal freedom. In threatening times, our best defense is to act together to the benefit of all.Pandemic fatigue is b...

How to work together, be more creative, and think way ahead …. gamify!

What made Albert Einstein say, “Games are the most elevated form of investigation”? As a physicist, shouldn’t he have put science on a pedestal?

​Why the simulation hypothesis is pseudoscience

The simulation hypothesis posits that everything we experience was coded by an intelligent being, and we are part of that computer code.But we cannot accurately reproduce natural laws with computer simulations.Faith is fine, but science requires evidence and logic.[Note: The following is a transcript of the video embedded at the bottom of this article.]I quite like the idea that we live in a computer simulation. It gives me hope that things will be better on the next level. Unfortunately, the id...

From the press release: The true question, they say, is whether antimatter apples fall down differently. If a difference were spotted, it would spell the end of "CPT invariance" -- a principle that has underpinned every theory of physics since the invention of quantum mechanics.

Scientists Get Closer To Redefining the Length of a Second

Scientists are inching one step closer toward redefining the length of a second. NPR reports: Atomic clocks, which look like a jumble of lasers and wires, work by tapping into the natural oscillation of atoms, with each atom "ticking" at a different speed. The worldwide standard atomic clocks have for decades been based on cesium atoms -- which tick about 9 billion times per second. But newer atomic clocks based on other elements tick much faster -- meaning it's possible to divide a second into ...
