Science is so much fun! Even more so when a real-life event (Cincinnati Reds Todd Frazier hits a home run while the bat is slipping out of his hands) turns into a small research project for a paper - collaborating with physics of baseball expert Dr. Alan Nathan (who has all of the 3-D ball tracking data to track the exact motion of the bat and ball) to study the impact and the vibration of the bat (my area of expertise) to show that the hands don't matter when it comes to the impact between baseball bat and ball.

Oh boy - there goes my chances of getting anything done for the next couple of weeks . . . I love reading old historical papers from prominent scientists.

Two of my favorites: Mathematica and NeXT computers . . . I didn't know that Steve Jobs was the one who suggested the name "Mathematica" and that he was also responsible for the bracket-shaped cells in notebooks. The fact that Mathematica was bundled with NeXT computers was one of the key reasons I purchased a NeXTstation while in graduate school. And the NeXTstep operating system is the main reason I'm now a Mac OS X user.

Has anyone tried using Hangouts with Extras? (so you can share screens, and access Google.docs, and use a scratch pad? I tried to set it up but got sent to a help screen with blank pages. What good is having a help button for Google+ Hangouts when none of the help entries have any text to go along with them? Finding the text "the answer you are looking for is not available" doesn't' actually help me.
