Gas rules

The picture of a central positively charged nucleus of an atom surrounded by negatively charged swarming electrons explains so much detail in the nature of our world.  This is known as the atomic model.  The behavior of gas, liquids and solids are almost completely explained with just that model (after including quantum effects).  Basic things like weather, water behavior, rock mechanics and fire to name but a small few. 

Let us start with nothing. A naive human has come to stay in your home. Perhaps it's a Tarzan type of character, just arrived from the wild, or, if you like a modern twist, it's a government agent who has been hit over the head and can't even remember his name. In any case, this naive human will, within a few hours of arrival, make his way to your kitchen and begin poking around, because he's hungry.

Vermont's somewhat odd GMO warning label law, which made sure to exempt anything that would impact Just Label It yogurt millionaire Gary Hirshberg's supply of dairy and import things like alcohol, restaurants and the Whole Foods deli section, is about to cost consumers millions of dollars.
In this short note physiological terms of unconditioned and conditioned reflexes are suggested for description of the sensitive active reflexive feature of quantum reality related to the impact of observational device. Those new in quantum physics terms intend to emphasize the active feature of quantum reality in combination with its temporary psi-memory of state that is outlined on the background of the passive classical physics. The quantum phenomenon of reflexive activity and temporary psi-memory of quantum reality is pointing to analogy with the known phenomenon of unconditioned reflexes of living organisms. 
In 1992 I started working at my undergraduate thesis, the search for all-hadronic top quark pairs in CDF data. The CDF experiment was just starting to collect proton-antiproton collision data with the brand-new silicon vertex detector in what was called Run 1a, which ended in 1993 and produced the data on which the first evidence claim of top quarks was based. But I was still working on the Run 0 data: 4 inverse picobarns of collisions -the very first collisions at the unprecedented energy of 1.8 TeV. And I was not alone: many analyses of those data were still in full swing.

As a young male scientist, I have to disagree with Dr. Tim Hunt regarding segregated labs. However, he has a Nobel Prize, which means he is smarter than I am. But I am definitely more attractive and have yet to have a female scientist swoon over me, which is fine because I am happily married.
    Many people associate the image of an old man in glasses and crazy white hair with a scientist. This is largely due to the visage of Albert Einstein in his later years. Einstein is largely recognized today for his theories on relativity describing motion at the speed of light and that of gravity.  Einstein did not win the Nobel prize for either of these however, he won the award for a lesser known discovery called the photoelectric effect. This discovery was one of the foundational cornerstones giving rise to quantum mechanics. 
Organic farming has had a pretty good run.

Life isn’t always fair. Some individuals are simply born more attractive than others. In most cases the females are the choosy ones, whereas males will try to mate as much as possible. So being unattractive poses the largest problems for males.

In many species, males will present the female with a gift (food), because, while she is eating she doesn’t mind having sex. However, the amount of food given is not equal between males. In the scorpionfly, unattractive males might not get a female quickly, but once they do, they sure know how to keep her around for a while!
