Mathematician superstar...
 
Groundbreaking mathematical theories from a relatively unknown man

FTA:
Langlands, a Canadian, is one of the world’s great mathematicians. His universe is the outer limits of pure mathematics, a rarefied realm where abstract objects exist, infinity is corralled and symmetry reigns.

In 1967, as a young professor at Princeton University, he revolutionized the ancient discipline. He discovered patterns in highly esoteric objects called automorphic forms and motives, and he restructured mathematics with two dazzling theories.

They indicated what mathematician Edward Frenkel calls “the source code of all mathematics,” and are credited with linking math’s main branches — number theory (once called arithmetic), harmonic analysis, which includes calculus, and geometry.

Russian-born mathematician Edward Frenkel, a math superstar and professor at the University of California, Berkeley, calls Canadian Robert Langlands "a modern-day Einstein." (Elizabeth Lippman)

To mathematicians, this is mind-blowing stuff. The branches deal with completely different things: number theory is about, yes, numbers, harmonic analysis studies motion and geometry deals with shapes. They may as well be different planets.

“Suddenly, you have a teleportation device that enables you to go — boom — from one place to another,” says Frenkel, a Russian-born mathematician at the University of California at Berkeley, describing the math-warping impact of Langlands’ conjectures....


Canadian Robert Langlands is 'like a modern-day Einstein,' who has devoted his life to the limits of pure mathematics

I personally feel that if Muslims in South Asia and Middle East want to change their country for the better, they need to give more freedom and respect towards their female society...

 
Nearly 1000 "honor" killings are reported in Pakistan each year, murders by a family member for behavior deemed "shameful," such as a relationship outside of marriage. When Khalida Brohi lost a close friend to the practice, she resolved to campaign against it. Yet she met resistance from an unlikely source: the very community she hoped to protect. In this powerful, honest talk, Brohi shares how she took a hard look at her own process, and offers ...

Radical education revolution...
 
I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this way. A whole country does! 😁

This is not exactly to the extent that I was thinking but it is definitely in the same direction. The individual skills of math, science, and other subjects are learned through experiences or focusing on topics. You don't need to spend a whole 12 year curriculum on math, it is learned almost as a by product. It's like The Karate Kid. Mr. Miyagi gave Daniel a few tasks that involved cleaning and painting around his home and as a by product he learned karate.

As the article brings out, the system people are currently learning in was designed for a different era. It needs to change.
Finland is among the top in secular education and yet they are not afraid to change their system radically and improve it. I think America and other countries need to do the same. But then again we still haven't gotten rid of inches and feet for the metric system.

Enjoy! 😁
Finland, one of the leading educational hotspots in the world, is embarking on one of the most radical overhauls in modern education. By 2020, the country plans to phase out teaching individual subjects such as maths, chemistry and physics, and...

IoT
 
If you’re not using the Internet of Things to engage your customers, you should be. Here are five most compelling ways that IoT can be used to create loyal customers. 
If you’re not using the Internet of Things to engage your customers, you should be. Earlier this week Jessica Groopman from Altimeter published a thought provoking white paper that recommends 5 consumer facing use cases for IoT. For each use case she highlights the value proposition for both the brand and [...]

Ok mathematicians behind the scenes... giler power...

When Simon Singh met the show's writers in LA for a new book, he found a team dedicated to inserting gags about complex maths problems. And you thought it was just a cartoon…

All iz well ;)
The movie is full of humorous scenes and of course its a great fun to watch! But when you look at it closely there are some lessons to be learned from it which I tried to bring it up for you today.The movie starts in search of a lost friend "Ranchoddas Shamaldas Chanchad" (the middle guy in the pic above) by two of his best friends (the other two) Raju & Farhan. While on their way to reach him, Farhan narrates how their lives have changed because...

I felt sick quite a lot during February too, mother nature doing her job reminding us...
 
February literally made no sense.
Depending on where you live, February was either one of the coldest such months on record (the East) or the warmest (the West).
