The Nobel Prize was established upon the death of scientist and inventor, Alfred Nobel
Chad Orzel wrote a column on his blog last week about James Blachowicz’s opinion piece in the New York Times titled “There is no scientific methods”. The Times article talks about how methods in science and those in, say, the humanities, are similar and then tries to make some point out of it regarding the validity of any thought.
Environmental groups in major cities all across America have sent their armies marching, a last, desperate attempt to ideologically plunder everything they can before the November election.

They have good reason to gain as much ground as possible now. While Republicans will insist that we are doomed if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, and Democrats will claim the same about Donald Trump, either one is going to be bad news for environmental groups.

According to new work published recently the TRAPPIST-1 planets could have an atmosphere hospitable to life as we know it. Could that life be intelligent and technological if it is there?  Sadly, that is not likely.    At less than 50 light years away we have had radio technology long enough that we would have heard something from them by now.  There could have been two way communications by now and there haven’t been.  The real significance of these planets is that they could be the best extra solar candidates for human colonization. (Gillon, et al. n.d.)  I also give a break down of why the habitability of multi star solar systems, as seen in a TV show like "Firefly" isn't possible.

Quantum Mechanics Started with Semi-Empirical Phenomenology –  Important Lesson

de NukesHow does humanity end under a Trump presidency? Maybe Trump attacks Syria with an all out airstrike after an ISIS terror attack in New York by "Syrian" terrorists. Syria is Putin's baby, however. Heavy Russian escalation follows. The Russians invade Ukraine as a message to the West. Border incursions by Russian planes start penetrating Alaskan airspace. Trump orders Air Force intrusions into Russia. Warships from both sides begin playing chicken again. A Russian plane crashes into an American carrier, disabling it and killing many aboard. Trump orders the Navy to sink a Russian flagship and succeeds.

As some of you may be aware, even on the western seaboard of the Atlantic, Theresa May is shortly to become Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, after Andrea Leadsom withdrew from the competition to become next leader of our Conservative Party.

Shortly before this happened, though, Michael Deacon, Parliamentary sketchwriter for the Telegraph, wrote this article, In a world of post-truth politics, Andrea Leadsom will make the perfect PM, which begins:

Friends, don’t let friends play Pokémon go alone unless they are known to be very situationally aware.  One or two images will show the problems that arise from not watching what you are doing while playing this game.  Consider where the “Pokéstops” are located.   By the by that is a name which is just begging for a double entendre meaning.    Much of the danger stems from the very thing that makes this game almost unique, it is based on augmented reality.  The space you play in is comprised of the very streets, buildings, and hazards of the real world.   Hence you need to be as warry as you would in the real world.

It did promote physical activity.

The concept origin of space-time itself as a emergent property of a collection of fundamentally quantum systems without a notion of space-time is not new. When this is done usually certain presuppositions are made about the nature of the underlying quantum system. In a recent paper posted to the arXiv by scientist out of Cal Tech develop aversion of this approach in which noting is assumed about the quantum system at the smallest scale. (Chun Jun Cao, 2016)

As military-grade robotics get cheaper and more capable, they'll be armed and put on American streets. With enough data from social media giants, these machines can mitigate some, possibly many mass murder attacks.
