    • Go On Till You Come to the End; Then Stop October 31, 2017
      ScienceBlogs is coming to an end. I don’t know that there was ever a really official announcement of this, but the bloggers got email a while back letting us know that the site will be closing down. I’ve been absolutely getting crushed between work and the book-in-progress and getting Charlie the pupper, but I did […]
    • Meet Charlie October 30, 2017
      It’s been a couple of years since we lost the Queen of Niskayuna, and we’ve held off getting a dog until now because we were planning a big home renovation– adding on to the mud room, creating a new bedroom on the second floor, and gutting and replacing the kitchen. This was quite the undertaking, […]
    • Physics Blogging Round-Up: August September 1, 2017
      Another month, another set of blog posts. This one includes the highest traffic I think I’ve ever seen for a post, including the one that started me on the path to a book deal: — The ALPHA Experiment Records Another First In Measuring Antihydrogen: The good folks trapping antimatter at CERN have now measured the […]
    • The Age Math Game August 22, 2017
      I keep falling down on my duty to provide cute-kid content, here; I also keep forgetting to post something about a nerdy bit of our morning routine. So, let’s maximize the bird-to-stone ratio, and do them at the same time. The Pip can be a Morning Dude at times, but SteelyKid is never very happy […]
    • Kid Art Update August 13, 2017
      Our big home renovation has added a level of chaos to everything that’s gotten in the way of my doing more regular cute-kid updates. And even more routine tasks, like photographing the giant pile of kid art that we had to move out of the dining room. Clearing stuff up for the next big stage […]
    • Physics Blogging Round-Up: July August 8, 2017
      Another month, another collection of blog posts for Forbes: — The Physics Of Century-Old Mirror Selfies: Back in the early 1900’s there was a brief vogue for trick pictures showing the same person from five different angles; this post explains how to do that with mirrors. — Why Research By Undergraduates Is Important For Science […]
    • Vacation Update July 8, 2017
      So, when last I posted an update on kid stuff, we were about to embark for a week in Mexico with family. As you would expect, I have a huge pile of pictures from this, but most of the cute-kid shots feature the kids with their cousins from Illinois, and I try to avoid posting […]
    • Physics Blogging Round-Up: June July 2, 2017
      To make up for last month’s long delay in posting, I’ll knock out this month’s recap of Forbes blog posts really quickly. Also, I still have Vacation Brain, so writing anything really new isn’t in the cards… — What Should Non-Scientists Learn From Physics?: You probably won’t be surprised to hear that, in my opinion, […]
    • Physics Blogging Round-Up: May June 20, 2017
      Much delayed, but this works out well because it’ll give you something to read while we’re away in Mexico on a family vacation. Here’s what I wrote for Forbes in the merry month of May: — In Science, Probability Is More Certain Than You Think: Some thoughts on the common mistake people make in saying […]
    • Kids Update, Programming Note June 19, 2017
      I’ve skipped a few weeks of cute-kid updates, largely because I was at DAMOP for a week, and then catching on stuff I missed while I was at DAMOP for a week. The principal activity during this stretch has been SteelyKid’s softball, with a mad flurry of games at the end of the season to […]
