Twitter to yet another open access group about the need for a live, open, complete, collaborative map

Replying to @APSphysics @IOPPublishing and 3 others Your groups’ policies and ideas are mostly correct, but your Internet footprint and methods are a mess. “open access” has 524 Million entry points today on Google search. And your group is just adding, badly, to that mess. One live, open, complete, collaborative map would help.

Twitter about lack of teachers for Texas – Lifetime learning for everyone is possible and desireable

Texas Tribune @TexasTribune 13h Texas has had a teacher shortage for years. However, a number of recent issues have placed teachers at the front lines — and are pushing them to their limits and out of the job. Here’s what you need to know: https://bit.ly/3J8OUEa Replying to @TexasTribune Your 2020 Texas pop is 29.6 M.

Superhalogens, hyperhalogens, hyperatoms, and controlled nuclear decays

Walter, This morning I was going over the magnetic, isotopic and chemical properties of manganese, and all the industrial and societal uses. I came across the terms “superhalogens” and “hyperhalogens” “hyperhalogens” OR “superhalogens” OR “hyperhalogen” OR “superhalogen” has 20,500 entry points There are LOTS of related terms – superalkalai, superatoms.  People like to make their

Comment on Quantifying the potential causes of Neanderthal extinction

Axel, Thank you for sharing your paper.  Academia.edu notified me that you had uploaded it.  I read it this morning, then read it again.  I wish your model was in a form that could be shared more easily. I follow groups using the internet.  I am interested in how people approach complex problems, and the

Answering a question – Is it possible to accelerate neutrons?

Can ever neutrons be directly accelerated by any means of energy ? https://www.researchgate.net/post/Can-Ever-neutrons-be-directly-accelerated-by-any-means-of-energy Riccardo Bernardini This is an interesting article. But search “neutron accelerator” on Google and you get many tens of thousands of entry points. The neutron has a magnetic moment, so is affected by any magnetic gradient. Actually by any energy density gradient

Comment on exploding wire and electron beam vaporization studies of electric polarizabiltiies

Dynamic dipole polarizability of gold and copper atoms for 532- and 1064-nm wavelengths https://www.researchgate.net/publication/330219250_Dynamic_dipole_polarizability_of_gold_and_copper_atoms_for_532-_and_1064-nm_wavelengths/comments I wrote to Gennady Sarkisov on ResearchGate about your work just now.  I was reading his Jan 2019 paper “Dynamic dipole polarizability of gold and copper atoms for 532- and 1064-nm wavelengths” at https://www.researchgate.net/publication/330219250_Dynamic_dipole_polarizability_of_gold_and_copper_atoms_for_532-_and_1064-nm_wavelengths/comments and left him this comment. ——————–  My

Comment on Why does light slow down in water

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUjt36SD3h8 You explained part of the problem, but not why it follows those paths. That takes mathematics, and you did not use any. Memorizing animations might seem a way to learn processes and use them later, but equations, measurements and precise models are better. You could have at least shown the equations, and more, provided

Comment on Collaboration for Global Problem Solving: The Case for Food

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anOEGXpppIk Too bad the person running the camera did not frame the slides so they could be read. You had some good things to say, but no links to resources, nor framework. Your EAT Foundation is not linked, nor the Atkinson Center. YouTube can be a place for discussion and collaboration, but it takes a

Comment in Microwave Handy Scanner

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDyo_OQFdAc I doubt that you read comments that come years after you make a video. But I will leave this in case anyone wants to try to improve on this. I think it is a really good idea and there are lots of tools and methods to improve on it. Particularly for humans, but for

Comment on a product on Amazon

Digital Voice Recorder; Modea Portable Digital, USB Disk Audio Voice Recorder https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CHNBJQR I wanted a low cost way to record while the recorder is plugged in. I hate batteries, and charging and guessing when the battery will fail. So I specifically looked for one that said “will record while charging”. Someone complained bitterly there are
