Comment on “Floating under a levitating liquid” and related issues

Floating under a levitating liquid at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bodsuTucSxQ and https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2643-8 (for pay, just for reference) This is not science and sharing, but what I have come to call “eye candy”. Pretty pictures and people playing with phenomena, but not showing the context and background. You start with showing the whole of the apparatus, explain the parts,

Spinal cord injury – global coordination and support system needed

ShahinaJoly, I read these and I am very sorry that this has happened to someone in your family. My younger brother broke his neck at C1-C2 many years ago and was quadriplegic, on a respirator, constantly sick with pneumonia, until he died a year and a half after his accident. It was one of the

Particle Clicker Game at CERN

Hello, I was looking at all groups working on games on GitHub and came across this particle clicker game. http://particle-clicker.web.cern.ch and https://github.com/particle-clicker/particle-clicker “An addictive incremental game that teaches players the history of high energy particle physics” So you click, it pulls up a random diagram of a scattering event, with no associated data.  Shows it

Comments on PubFacts.com – is it for real? What and who is it for?

I came across PubFacts.com while searching for “parallel sequential” “fluorescence in situ hybridization”.  There is no location or identification information. No team.  It looks like someone copied material from PubMed and MedLine then put really basic queries and listings.  I wrote to ask them who they are, where they are, and what their goals might

How we Jam: FigJam for Designers at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoCRiAWNEYI You took an interactive and collaborative environment and transferred it to a one way only, no feedback format when you put this on YouTube.

Comment on UN fund raising practices on the Internet

Jane, I commented on your “Urgent appeal” posting. You have edited and curated many things. How would you approach the wide variety and purposes of postings on the Internet related to “Afghanistan”?  — Any topic that has millions or billions of entry points on the Internet? That is what I am facing with the Internet

About optically connected processors for home use and many things

Nora, Thanks, I will keep that in mind. If you cast tiny angular (square, triangular, for example) blocks of plastic on ends of an optical fiber, then polish the whole thing, that would give a fiber that would alighn properly with a corresponding hole and fiber (or fibers).  It is something that human hands could

Solar System Colonization – Comment on How to Terraform Venus video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-WO-z-QuWI (“terraform” OR “terraforming”) (“venus”) gives 14.3 Million entry points. There is certainly plenty of interest and people talking. The groups and individuals are just not working together effectively. (“planetary engineer” OR “planetary engineering”) has 34,600 entry points. Topic development on the Internet is generally mostly random and undirected. (“planetary” OR “planets”) (“engineering” OR “engineer”

Note about why I built Sculptor.Org

J, I talked to my sister, T, yesterday. She is one who has painted all her life. Maybe she will have time and space to do it again. For ten years, about 20 hours a week, back from about 1993 to 2003, I ran a website for sculptors. At the end it had 50,000 unique
