    • Go On Till You Come to the End; Then Stop October 31, 2017
      Go On Till You Come to the End; Then Stop 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 […]
    • Meet Charlie October 30, 2017
      Meet Charlie 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 […]
    • Physics Blogging Round-Up: August September 1, 2017
      Physics Blogging Round-Up: August 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 […]
    • The Age Math Game August 22, 2017
      The Age Math Game 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 […]
    • Kid Art Update August 13, 2017
      Kid Art Update 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 […]
    • Physics Blogging Round-Up: July August 8, 2017
      Physics Blogging Round-Up: July 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 […]
    • Vacation Update July 8, 2017
      Vacation Update 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 […]
    • Physics Blogging Round-Up: June July 2, 2017
      Physics Blogging Round-Up: June 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 […]
    • Physics Blogging Round-Up: May June 20, 2017
      Physics Blogging Round-Up: May 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 […]
    • Kids Update, Programming Note June 19, 2017
      Kids Update, Programming Note 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 […]
