Here’s how I built my Lego simple panoramic mount.

This week I’ve had the privilege of having retired astronaut Woody Spring and Crash, a retired Navy test pilot, each of them with decades of DoD leadership experience as instructors at an advanced Test&Evaluation course.  Their friendly and enthusiastic willingness to pass on knowhow was infectious to myself and my classmates, military and civilian folks who really care about trying to do things right. 

Keeping the Gate is the first to announce that an anonymous complaint addressed to the New York Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) has been made against famed O.J. Simpson defense attorneys Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, who are the cofounders of the Innocence Project at Yeshiva University in Manhattan. 

I’ll demonstrate how I built a simple mirror or filter mount out of Lego. This mount can then be attached to a pan and/or tilt mechanism.

When you are a weight loss doctor, your friends and colleagues cannot help but comment on your work. Many conversations contain the question, "Isn't it all just....(carbs, laziness, fast food, inactivity, genes, fructose - fill in speculation here). I began to avoid the subject of my job like it was my dirty secret, but it came up fairly regularly nonetheless. Of the many completely wrong-headed things that non-obese people wonder, the one that came up most often was, "how does a  person let themselves get that way?"
Apologizing for a hiatus due to vacations, I am posting today a tentative logo of the Marie-Curie network I am coordinating, AMVA4NewPhysics. A brief explanation of the symbols at the basis of the logo is given below, in order for you to propose changes or even help by offering different ideas (and if you're a graphic designer, then maybe you consider producing a better one for us ?).

MarsPolar, a newly created international venture has started raising funds for their bold project to establish a permanent human colony on Mars. The team behind the project wants to collect at least $100.000 to cover the initial costs of their future endeavor.

In order to send first human to Mars, plenty of pioneering activities must be taken. It’s a journey on an unprecedented scale in the history of human spaceflight, but like any other voyage, even the longest one, starts with a small, seemingly insignificant step.

That’s what MarsPolar, a new international venture does recently to prepare for a challenging and bumpy road to the Red Planet.
What do wealthy progressives in New York and California share in common? Both groups are happy to exploit poor people as part of their self-identification. In California, that has involved not vaccinating their children, instead letting poor kids get vaccinated to provide herd immunity for their special snowflakes, while in New York it means adopting a veil of environmental sincerity, by going after both nuclear power and natural gas, while quietly buying all the fossil fuel energy they can get to prevent brown-outs. Let poor people in Pennsylvania have health risks, say New Yorkers.
Searching for the perfect equation

You can discuss obesity and weight loss without using math...in the same way you can discuss Astronomy without using math. While there may be a way to present a conjecture in either field using just logic and pure reason, math becomes necessary as the questions tackle more complex and defined aspects of the science. The mathematical regulation of body weight is easy understand and comes directly from a simple energy balance equation with “R” equaling the amount of weight gain or loss, based on calories in, “I”, minus calories expended, “E.”
