This is a great physics demo. Refraction is the phenomena being demonstrated here. Refraction is a property of light to bend when it moves through one medium to another. Another illustration of refraction is a rainbow. Here, as the sunlight passes through the air and then the water droplets in the air after a rainstorm the light is bent but this case is special because the amount of light bending is great and the amount of bending is different for different colors of light (known as the index of refraction) so in the case of sunlight being bent by many water molecules in the air, the light is actually bent into the colors that make it up. In any case, that demonstrates simple refraction. The water glass trick is more complex. The round glass causes the light from the right to be bent the way the glass is pointed inside which is across the glass to the left. So if the image is the correct size, it will appear to reverse. If you get it to work try it with a word and it will reverse too.

I went to China in 2008 and 2009 and met a wonderful lady. We hooked up but it wasn't meant to be. We are still friends and I have no bad feelings toward her. Anyway, as with all things there is good and bad that come from it. In this case, besides the time I had with my now ex-wife, I got to visit China twice and had a wonderful guide. I included some of the pictures here. It says 70 pictures but I deleted the personal ones so there are only about 30. It gives you a good view of what China is like. I went at what was probably the best time to go. Things like restaurants were still cheap and the food was out of this world. Nothing like in the states. Well, take a look, there are comments on the pictures. I hope you enjoy it.
Christian Berrian I listened very hard for that second B but that is such a noisy song, it is hard to hear it although I think you have something there but frankly I just think the riff ends on the B which is only picked once. I can't hear a second B but this would mean only one E is played after the 1 or 2 B's. I do hear it that way. My hearing is going and it is pretty tough to tell. The only other comments I can make is that this was a good job Steve. I only find one minor difference in the way I hear it: The first part of the first riff when the hammer on goes from the 4th string open to E. The is picked twice but I hear it more with the E's staccato and not two just picked twice with no muted in-between them. Truly points that make little difference. Kirkola: I saw EC play this live and they did a very long jam at the end like the Slowhand version but they went on forever and everyone got to solo. I wore me out just to listen.
- Marquette UniversityEngineering, mathematics, 1978 - 1983Traditional broad based four year undergraduate study courses. engineering elective courses focused on materials science, electric and dielectric properties of materials and semiconductor physics. Because I worked in an engineering capacity during this time, extra courses allowed more mathematics, and specialized upper division courses.
Friends, A relationship
I'm a semi-retired engineering consultant. Health matters limit my time available. I prefer projects that deal with materials science but I also like to work on projects that draw from on my unique skill set to help a project come together.
Vocational: Problem solving primarily in semiconductor physics, I have experience working with high energy plasma and high voltage systems. Personal: I spend a lot of time playing my guitar and trying to improve my skills. Because I'm a diabetic, I've developed an appetite for healthy activities such as working out. anything that promotes fitness. I find that the outdoors or a gym is a much healthier atmosphere than a bar or club. I believe I can be a good conversationalist because I have a wide range of knowledge. Some people would say I'm just a blabbermouth. I guess it depends on your point of view. I will say this: I enjoy learning through listening and find most subjects I don't know much about interesting. For this reason, I have been told that I can be a fun person to talk with. Of course, this is usually the case with open minded people with broad interests.
- Semi-RetiredSelf-Employed Engineering Consultant, 1989 - presentPresently semi-retired, over the period shown my work was quite varied and interesting. Highlights include continued work in the semiconductor industry, application of experience gained there in other materials science projects being carried out at area industries and consulting with a company that developed devices and software to designed for the deaf community,
- Various CompaniesEngineer, 1978 - 1989Building my experience happened primarily at Eaton Corp. at the beginning of this period while I also attended University at night. My job depended on my learning engineering basics as well as very advanced concepts which was accomplished through a good system of cooperation between Eaton and Marquette. After college, I worked in large corporate engineering departments working on design of everything from medical equipment to heavy industrial goods. I wanted to be a consultant in order to use all my skills. Getting enough work to be a consultant required teaching at many tech. schools to pay the bills during the interim period.

Being new, this place is GREAT! Hopefully, it will stay that way but keep in mind this review is 10/19/15 and some of these places so change with time. The seafood is quite good and fresh. The biggest positive is that they use LOTS of REAL Chinese vegies. Pea pods, water chestnuts, the little corn cobs, all that stuff, not 5 giant pieces of broccoli like some places.
