Absolutely incredible.
 
Harry Potter and the Quidditch Cup: A Lego stop motion film made by a friend. 

It is 17 minutes long, so there's a short trailer here: http://youtu.be/Lpfi0oALWNk?list=UURfiggAacsf9XWb6zHFJahA

It took about 18 months to make, and consists of over 26,000 individual frames. My friend guessed that it took about 1000 hours to make.

There are some 'making of' pictures here: https://plus.google.com/109767895390898511666/posts/M7XswE2WkJJ

Enjoy!

Poster Conference

Tomorrow I am presenting my work at the University of Birmingham Graduate School Research Poster Conference, which is open to any member of the university or the public to come along and find out what it is that the university does. If I see you there, then thanks for coming! This post is intended to be a collection of interesting links for those who are interested in learning more.

Firstly an electronic copy of the poster can be found here: http://goo.gl/yYCQTY

Hyperphysics has a good introduction to nuclear physics and related topics:

http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/nuccon.html

in particular nuclear structure:

http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/nuclear/nucstructcon.html#c1

An introduction to the topic of clustering in nuclei, albeit aimed at those with a physics background, can be found on Scholarpedia:

http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Clusters_in_nuclei

For the really keen an interactive chart of the nuclides can be found on the website of the National Nuclear Data Centre:

http://www.nndc.bnl.gov/chart/

A video illustrating how it relates to the periodic table of the elements, created by Sean Liddick, can be found here:

If you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to contact me on Twitter (@joe_walshe) or by email (j.walshe@pgr.bham.ac.uk)

Sure it does +Jessica Payne .. If you cleared more of those tiles... you'll get more points.  10 of the 1024 tiles .. banked by a bomb is worth more than a 8192 that was never cleared.

I am pleased to announce this years, 'official', Christmas song. 

I thought it was going to be hard to follow 2011s, 'When the Thames Froze' (Smith & Burrows) and 2012s 'This Ain't New Jersey' (Smith & Burrows) but, fortunately for you, I've managed to find you another brilliant track:

'Funny Looking Angels' (Smith & Burrows)

Introduction
After completing my masters degree in mathematics I have moved onto a Ph.D studying how to better model the upper atmosphere.

My main interests are either computer based: programming, linux (of all flavours) and Android. Or science and maths based, I am also particularly interested in astronomy. I play a couple of instruments and love a good board game!

If you add me please make sure you have filled out your own profile so I can work out what circle to put you in :)

The Days Inn was clean, comfortable and the staff were friendly. It is located close to the airport and about a 15-20 minute walk to the Isotopes baseball park. Given the hotels price (nice and cheap!) it is an ideal location for somewhere to stay if you are heading down to Albuquerque to watch the Isotopes (or the Lobos). Free WiFi throughout the hotel, and a complimentary breakfast all makes the Days Inn and Suites a great place to stay in Albuquerque whether you are going to watch some sport, or need a place to stay near the airport.

There have been refurbishments to this hotel recently and it is great! The room I had was nice, clean and comfortable. The staff were absolutely fantastic and the free shuttle to JFK was really helpful. Plus there is free WiFi and breakfast. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay near JFK for a flight.

A typical Ladbrokes - this one is fairly small inside. The place is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful, can't ask for much more.

I had a couple of meetings in LA and wanted to stay in a hotel near LAX. The Sheraton was perfect for this. The free shuttle bus between the hotel and airport runs every 10 mins or so and made travelling to and from the airport very easy. Inside I found the hotel to have professional and (extremely) helpful staff, comfortable and clean rooms and fantastic facilities around the hotel. The restaurants offered very high quality food and the pool area was nice to relax around. Even though the hotel is so close to the airport, you could barely, and rarely, hear noise from the planes. If I was to find any negative it would be that you had to pay for WiFi in the rooms, but this is a really great hotel. I will definitely stay again.

A great casino, just like one off the strip. Make sure you have either an international VISA card, or Mastercard as that is all that the ATMs will accept.

A great place for an evening out. The food is fantastic, with plenty of variety and huge portions. The atmosphere is fantastic and would be perfect for groups of all sizes. The staff were all very friendly and helpful - I will visit here many more times!
