Read this in response to a post from Robb Schreiber about not wanting to get out of bed and just letting the kids sleep in too. Turns out it was just as I suspected. New Zealand is radical. As if kiwi birds, tuatara, the haka dance and the Shire weren't enough. the response from a New Zealander: In New Zealand, Its pretty standard practice: "if the kids were up late, take them to school one hour late." As long as you call in and say so. I have called in the night before at least twice. They actually prefer you keep tired or sick kids home. The Principal of our school will often say at any late night school event, "Remember one hour late is ok for those of you with schedules that allow it." Such a different world. more facts on New Zealand: Sir Edmund Hillary, a New Zealander, was the first to climb Mt. Everest. Ernest Rutherford was the first person to split the atom.

« Atomic theory is an ancient science. The earliest record of it can be found in Vedic texts from india which are many thousands of years old. Legend has it that the Vedic civilisation was highly advanced. The sages that oversaw its development, through their mystic insight and deep meditation, discovered the ancient symbols of spirituality: Aumkara and Swastika. They also discovered many scientific principles that they applied to develop a highly advanced technology. They gave the atom its sanskrit name “Anu”. While the technical achievements of this ancient civilisation have been forgotten the archetypal symbols of spirituality have maintained their eminence in our consciousness. Now, thanks to advances in modern atomic theory, the atomic basis of these divine symbols can be appreciated. Western theories of the atom took shape in the 18th and 19th century. At the beginning of the 19th century, John Dalton theorised that an atom was an indivisible particle of an element. However, after the electron ...

Proton Proton is a subatomic particle with a positive charge and a mass of 1.67262 × 10−27 kg which is 1,836 times the mass of an electron. When the number of protons in the nucleus is equal to the number of electrons orbiting the nucleus the atom is electrically neutral. Wilhelm Wien (1898) and J.J. Thomson (1910) identified a positively charged particle equal in mass to the hydrogen atom. Ernest Rutherford (1919) observed that nitrogen under alpha-particle bombardment ejects what appeared to be hydrogen nuclei. By 1920 he had accepted that the hydrogen nucleus is a distinct particle within the atom and named it proton.
Blaise Pascal carries a barometer up a church tower and a mountain to determine that atmospheric pressure is due to a column of air (1648). Robert Boyle uses an air pump to determine the inverse relationship between the pressure and volume of a gas. This relationship came to be known as Boyle's law (1660â1662). Joseph Priestley suspends a bowl of water above a beer vat at a brewery and synthesizes carbonated water (1767). Antoine Lavoisier determines that oxygen combines with materials upon combustion, thus disproving phlogiston theory (1783). Antoine Lavoisier determines that chemical reactions in a closed container do not alter total mass. From these observations he establishes the law of conservation of mass (1789). Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford demonstrates that the heat developed by the friction of boring cannon is nearly inexhaustible. This result was presented in opposition to caloric theory (1798). Humphry Davy uses electrolysis to isolate elemental potassium, sodium, calcium, strontium, bariu ...

"Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937) is known as the father of nuclear physics not just because he won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. He was also a superb teacher. Eleven of his students won Nobel Prizes. That's the kind of teacher or mentor or guide I urge you to connect with in 2014, Taurus. The coming months will potentially be an optimum time for you to learn deeply, and at a rapid rate. One of the best ways to fulfill that promise will be to apprentice yourself to adepts who have mastered the skills and savvy you want to acquire."

Noble Prize: The Nobel Prize is a set of annual international awards bestowed in a number of categories by Scandinavian committees in recognition of cultural and/or scientific advances. The will of the Swedish philanthropist inventor Alfred Nobel established the prizes in 1895. The prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, and Peace were first awarded in 1901. The related Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences was created in 1968. There are six categories in total peace, literature, physics, economics, Chemistry and physiology/medicine The Peace Prize is awarded in Oslo, Norway, while the other prizes are awarded in Stockholm, Sweden. The Nobel Prize is widely regarded as the most prestigious award available in the fields of literature, medicine, physics, chemistry, peace, and economics.

The thought of Alkesyye and quantum theory have several things in common. Quantum In 1912, Neils Bohr began research under Ernest Rutherford. Rutherford, by this time, had not only discovered the phenomenon of radioactive half-life but had also revolutionized man’s understanding of the atom. Rutherford postulated that the atom was like a miniature universe with electrons rotating around a positively charged nucleus. Rutherford, however, discovered a problem in his model. If his model was true, the electron should rapidly orbit into the nucleus – i.e. if Rutherford was correct, atoms could not exist and, therefore, nothing could exist. Bohr resolved the dilemma by demonstrating that electrons only occupy various defined orbits. Werner Heisenberg would later corroborate Bohr’s atomic model but would find himself struggling with a new problem of his own. The Bohr-Heisenberg atomic model implied that there was a level of uncertainty regarding an electron’s location. One night Heisenberg went out for a ...

"All science is either stamp-collecting or Physics." I was quoting Ernest Rutherford at the Institite of Physics today.
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1908 was awarded to Ernest Rutherford "for his investigations into the disintegration of the elements, and the chemistry of radioactive substances".
Quantum Numbers (Erwin Schr�dinger) A powerful model of the atom was developed by Erwin Schr�dinger in 1926. Schr�dinger combined the equations for the behavior of waves with the de Broglie equation to generate a mathematical model for the distribution of electrons in an atom. The advantage of this model is that it consists of mathematical equations known as wave functions that satisfy the requirements placed on the behavior of electrons. The disadvantage is that it is difficult to imagine a physical model of electrons as waves. The Schr�dinger model assumes that the electron is a wave and tries to describe the regions in space, or orbitals, where electrons are most likely to be found. Instead of trying to tell us where the electron is at any time, the Schr�dinger model describes the probability that an electron can be found in a given region of space at a given time. This model no longer tells us where the electron is; it only tells us where it might be. The Bohr model was a one-dimensional mod ...

In 1897 the British physicist Joseph John (J. J.) Thomson (1856–1940) discovered the electron in a series of experiments designed to study the nature of electric discharge in a high-vacuum cathode-ray tube, an area being investigated by numerous scientists at the time. Thomson interpreted the deflection of the rays by electrically charged plates and magnets as evidence of "bodies much smaller than atoms" that he calculated as having a very large value for the charge-to-mass ratio. Later he estimated the value of the charge itself. In 1904 Thomson suggested a model of the atom as a sphere of positive matter in which electrons are positioned by electrostatic forces. His efforts to estimate the number of electrons in an atom from measurements of the scattering of light, X, beta, and gamma rays initiated the research trajectory along which his student Ernest Rutherford moved. Thomson's last important experimental program focused on determining the nature of positively charged particles. Here his techniques ...

Ernest Rutherford, NZ-born father of nuclear physics, embodies Kiwi ingenuity & resourcefulness. Who do you think shares this mentality?
Biography[edit] Early life and education[edit] Ernest Rutherford was the son of James Rutherford, a farmer, and his wife Martha Thompson, originally from Hornchurch, Essex, England.[10] James had emigrated to New Zealand from Perth, Scotland, "to raise a little flax and a lot of children". Ernest was born at Spring Grove (now Brightwater), near Nelson, New Zealand. His first name was mistakenly spelled 'Earnest' when his birth was registered.[11] He studied at Havelock School and then Nelson College and won a scholarship to study at Canterbury College, University of New Zealand where he participated in the debating society and played rugby.[12] After gaining his BA, MA and BSc, and doing two years of research during which he invented a new form of radio receiver, in 1895 Rutherford was awarded an 1851 Research Fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851,[13] to travel to England for postgraduate study at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge.[14] He was among the first of t ...

Atoms, Nuclei and Particles All matter is made up from molecules, and molecules are bound states of atoms. For example, water consists of water molecules which are bound states of one oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms. This state of affairs is reflected in the chemical formula H2O There are 92 different atoms seen in nature however, element 43, technetium { is the chemical element with atomic number 43 and the symbol Tc. It is the lowest atomic number element without any stable isotopes; every form of it is radioactive}.It does not occur in nature, but it has been man-made. Atoms have a nucleus, and electrons are orbiting around these nuclei. The size of the atoms and (the size of the outer orbit of the electrons) is 1/100 000,000 cm while the nucleus is 100 000 times smaller. The atom is largely empty for example, suppose the nucleus is something like a tennis ball (about 2.5 inch or 6.35 cm diameter). Then the first electron circles at a distance of about 6.35 km (4 miles). It was Ernest Rutherford (18 ...
“It is not in the nature of things for any one man to make a sudden violent discovery; sciences go step by step and every man depends on the work of his predecessors. Scientists are not dependent on ideas of a single man, but on the combined wisdom of thousands of men, all thinking of the same & each doing his little bit to add to the great structure of knowledge which is being erected.’’ - Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937)

The only possible interpretation of any research whatever in the `social. sciences' is: some do, some don't. -- Ernest Rutherford
Dimitri Mendeleev created the first version of the Periodic Table by arranging the elements by atomic mass. He noticed patterns in chemical and physical properties, and arranged the elements with the most similar properties next to each other. He left blank spots in the table for the elements that had not been discovered yet. Henry Moseley determined the atomic number of each of the elements, and arranged a new periodic table by atomic number. John Dalton invented a five point atomic theory, with the five points stating that elements were all made of small particles called atoms, that the every atom of an element was the same size, mass, among other things, that the atoms could not be divided, created or destroyed, that the atoms of different elements could only combine with other atoms in whole-number ratios to form chemical compounds, and that in a chemical reaction atoms were combined, seperated, or rearranged. J.J. Thomson was a British chemist who was credited with discovering the electron, as well a ...

19 October 1937: Ernest Rutherford died. Let us remember his contribution for the development of sciences on his death anniversary.
The development of the atomic theory owes much to the work of two men: Antoine Lavoisier, who did not himself think of matter in terms of atoms but whose work laid organization groundwork for thinking about elements, and John Dalton, to whom the atomic theory is attributed. Much of Lavoisier’s work as a chemist was devoted to the study of combustion. He became convinced that when a substance is burned in air, it combines with some component of the air. Eventually he realized that this component was the dephlogisticated air which had been discovered by Joseph Priestly (1733 to 1804) a few years earlier. Lavoisier renamed this substance oxygen. In an important series of experiments he showed that when mercury is heated in oxygen at a moderate temperature, a red substance, calx of mercury, is obtained. (A calx is the ash left when a substance burns in air.) At a higher temperature this calx decomposes into mercury and oxygen. Lavoisier’s careful experiments also revealed that the combined masses of mercu ...

"I came into the room, which was half dark, and presently spotted Lord Kelvin in the audience and realized that I was in for trouble at the last part of the speech dealing with the age of the earth, where my views conflicted with his . To my relief, Kelvin fell fast asleep , but as I came to the important point, I saw the old bird sit up , open an eye and *** a baleful glance at me! Then a sudden inspiration came, and I said Lord Kelvin had limited the age of the earth, provided no new source of heat was discovered . That prophetic utterance refers to what we are now considering tonight, radium! Behold ! the old boy beamed up on me." ~ Ernest Rutherford

Along in 2011, our company had managed developed a new massive machine called tocometer. This invention was assumed in seperating deuterium that only appear in sea water. Next, that radioisotop element are use to creat a devastating energy by fussion process which only occur in the sun . This machine was originally found by a physician from New Zealand who is also a close companion of Ernest Rutherford in late 1960's . Unfortunately, he cannot continued his research because of lack of fund. We from this company also facing the same problem. We are now in the effort of looking a huge sponsorship to continue this development . We can say that , if we manage finish this complex project , we should not have problem in finding the sources of energy .
Geiger and Marsden Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden were two scientists who performed the Geiger–Marsden experiment, or the gold foil experiment, under Ernest Rutherford’s instruction. The experiment proved the structure of the atom. A beam of alpha particles was aimed at a very thin sheet of gold foil and their passage through the foil detected. The scientist expected the alpha particles to go straight through the foil, but some of the particles came out at different angles, and others came straight back. Through this experiment, they discovered the existence of the nucleus of atoms.
ATOMIC THEORIES John Dalton revolutionized science in 1803 when he hypothesized that atoms of different chemical elements, such as hydrogen and oxygen, had different characteristic masses. J.J. Thomson discovered the first subatomic particle -the electron - in 1897. Ernest Rutherford revealed the presence of a dense central nucleus in atoms in 1911. In 1913, Niels Bohr proposed that electrons in atoms are confined to certain allowed (restricted) orbits. In 1924, Prince Louis Victor de Broglie produced a better description of atoms, which included the wavelike property of the quickly orbiting electrons. By 1928, Edwin Schrodinger, Wolfgang Pauli and Max Born had described the atom using quantum mechanical principles.

Hello guys.. Lets play a game... You all post 1/1 funny things about physics, physicists or anything related with physics. I will start it at first. Nobel Prize winner Ernest Rutherford once said, "all science is either physics or stamp collecting." (Ironically, Rutherford won his Nobel in chemistry, not physics).
Nuclear & Particle Physics Timeline 1853 - It has long been thought that the Earth is no more than a few tens of thousands of years old. Beginning in the 1820's, however, many geologists and biologists have come to believe that the Earth is much older than previously thought, perhaps in the hundreds of millions of years. (Darwin estimates the age of the Earth at 300 million years in the initial printing of Origin of Species.) These estimates are based on an increased awareness of how very slowly geological and biological processes such as erosion or evolution occur, and therefore how enormously old the Earth must be to accomodate them. Prominent physicist William Thompson (also known as Lord Kelvin - degrees Kelvin are named after him) is firmly opposed to evolution. He begins to marshall theoretical evidence against Darwin. He performs classical thermodynamic calculations which prove that if the Earth were as old as Darwin and others claim, then it would have long since cooled to an inert rock and no geo ...
"The important discovery comes on the anniversary of Ernest Rutherford’s famous gold foil experiment, in which the physicist’s graduate students determined that their love lives were mostly empty."
Ernest Rutherford wrote: “A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers.”
Manchester has been named the City of Science for 2016. Hardly surprising with alumni as Ernest Rutherford, John Dalton, Alan Turing, et al.
I want to thank a few people for helping me with my new discovery. These people include J.J. Thomson, Ernest Rutherford, and Max Planck. J.J. Thomson and Ernest Rutherford are both gentlemen who allowed me to work with them prior to my new discovery, and I was able to alter Max Planck's theory of quanta to make my discovery!
Would like to give a shout out to JJ Thompson, Ernest Rutherford, Nils Bohr and Schrelinger for making my life *** in Chemistry :) :) :)
Ernest Rutherford is some science legend or something... :p
I pulled this story off the met. Not sure wear..bit the moral of the story is don't ever let anyone tell you how to think! A BIT OF PHYSICS HUMOUR Sir Ernest Rutherford, President of the Royal Academy, and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics, related the following story: "Some time ago I received a call from a colleague. He was about to give a student a zero for his answer to a physics question, while the student claimed a perfect score. The instructor and the student agreed to an impartial arbiter, and I was selected. I read the examination question: "Show how it is possible to determine the height of a tall building with the aid of a barometer." The student had answered: "Take the barometer to the top of the building,attach a long rope to it, lower it to the street, and then bring it up, measuring the length of the rope. The length of the rope is the height of the building." The student really had a strong case for full credit since he had really answered the question completely and correctly! On th ...
Hans Geiger Died 24 Sep 1945 at age 62 (born 30 Sep 1882). was a German physicist who introduced the Geiger counter, the first successful detector of individual alpha particles and other ionizing radiations. After earning his Ph.D. at the University of Erlangen in 1906, he collaborated at the University of Manchester with Ernest Rutherford. He used the first version of his particle counter, and other detectors, in experiments that led to the identification of the alpha particle as the nucleus of the helium atom and to Rutherford's statement (1912) that the nucleus occupies a very small volume in the atom. The Geiger-Müller counter (developed with Walther Müller) had improved durability, performance and sensitivity to detect not only alpha particles but also beta particles (electrons) and ionizing electromagnetic photons. Geiger returned to Germany in 1912 and continued to investigate cosmic rays, artificial radioactivity, and nuclear fission.

An Open Letter To Afis : The Solution To Nigeria’s Ethnic Nationalities Problem Written by Ozodi Osuji Ph.D Be the first to comment! Afis, my dear friend, how are you? You are probably the person I read most when I visit Nigerian Internet forums. Usually, I give myself no more than an hour a day to fool around with Nigerian news. I would go to Nigerian newspapers and read the headline news of the day. That exercise generally takes about thirty minutes. I would then surf the various Nigerian Internet forums for the next thirty minutes and thereafter call it quits. As I surf the Nigerian Internet forums some writers are a must read, such as you, Bolaji Aluko, Dr. Ojo, and some of the Igbo crazies such as Chukwuma and Assigwara (you learn a whole lot from insane people; trust me, I know what I am talking about for I worked with mad folks for over twenty years trying to heal them). Afis, I find your write ups honest and refreshing; there is no dissembling, no phoniness and shamminess; you say it as you see ...
Maria Skłodowska was born in Warsaw, in the Russian partition of Poland, on 7 November 1867, the fifth and youngest child of well-known teachers Bronisława and Władysław Skłodowski. Maria's older siblings were Zofia (born 1862), Józef (1863), Bronisława (1865) and Helena (1866).On both the paternal and maternal sides, the family had lost their property and fortunes through patriotic involvements in Polish national uprisings aiming at the restoration of Poland's independence (most recent of which was the January Uprising of 1863–1864). This condemned the subsequent generation, including Maria, her elder sisters and her brother, to a difficult struggle to get ahead in life.Maria's paternal grandfather Józef Skłodowski had been a respected teacher in Lublin, where he taught the young Bolesław Prus, who would become one of the leading figures in the history of Polish literature. Her father Władysław Skłodowski taught mathematics and physics, subjects that Maria was to pursue, and was also direc ...
Michael Faraday, FRS (22 September 1791 – 25 August 1867) was an English scientist who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include those of electromagnetic induction , diamagnetism and electrolysis . Although Faraday received little formal education he was one of the most influential scientists in history. [1] It was by his research on the magnetic field around a conductor carrying a direct current that Faraday established the basis for the concept of the electromagnetic field in physics. Faraday also established that magnetism could affect rays of light and that there was an underlying relationship between the two phenomena. [2][3] He similarly discovered the principle of electromagnetic induction , diamagnetism , and the laws of electrolysis . His inventions of electromagnetic rotary devices formed the foundation of electric motor technology, and it was largely due to his efforts that electricity became practical for use in technology. As a chemist, ...
1921; Working at Manchester under Ernest Rutherford on radioactivity is so much fun! I have a feeling that there is something inside the nucleus besides protons. Rutherford's discovery of a particle with mass but no charge makes me want to perform experiments and prove that there is a NEUTRON!
The history of nuclear physics as a discipline distinct from atomic physics starts with the discovery of radioactivity by Henri Becquerel in 1896,[1] while investigating phosphorescence in uranium salts.[2] The discovery of the electron by J. J. Thomson a year later was an indication that the atom had internal structure. At the turn of the 20th century the accepted model of the atom was J. J. Thomson's plum pudding model in which the atom was a large positively charged ball with small negatively charged electrons embedded inside of it. By the turn of the century physicists had also discovered three types of radiation emanating from atoms, which they named alpha, beta, and gamma radiation. Experiments in 1911 by Otto Hahn, and by James Chadwick in 1914 discovered that the beta decay spectrum was continuous rather than discrete. That is, electrons were ejected from the atom with a range of energies, rather than the discrete amounts of energies that were observed in gamma and alpha decays. This was a problem ...

Subatomic particle arrivals, at whatever velocity and concentration, are quantified/measured in quantum physics, or just physics, by use of materials that respond to those with electrical impulses that typically transfer electric current through them so that magnitude can be compared. Zinc sulfide, which Ernest Rutherford used to count scintillations, which were small flashes of light every time an alpha particle arrived, was one of the very first uses of materials that respond in such a way. -DL

What’s in the nucleus? Is it one large mass or it made up of no particles? How can properties of tiny object be investigated? on the investigation of Ernest Rutherford = he made an investigation, on how alpha particles can entered into the chamber when radioactive are present. = for instance on the question it is similar on “mouse trap” = He concluded that helium gas detected, he prove that the trap alpha particles were helium nuclei = the experiment showed that radon nucleus had spontaneously split. = throwing off a small fragment “alpha particle” and; leaving the large fragment “different nucleus” / chemical properties ex. Radon - Polonium + Helium ‘Transmutation = it is the process of changing one element into another = it was accompanied by: Alpha Decay Beta Decay Alpha Decay = When it is accompany by transmutation = in alpha decay if two proton are lost, the atomic number of radon are lost = it represented as 42 He ex. 22286Rn - 21884Po + 42 He Beta Decay = neutron breaks up int ...

When Albert Einstein died, he met three New Zealanders in the queue outside the Pearly Gates. To pass the time, he asked what were their IQs. The first replied 190. "Wonderful," exclaimed Einstein. "We can discuss the contribution made by Ernest Rutherford to atomic physics and my theory of general relativity". The second answered 150. "Good," said Einstein. "I look forward to discussing the role of New Zealand's nuclear-free legislation in the quest for world peace". The third New Zealander mumbled 50. Einstein paused, and then asked, "So what is your forecast for the budget deficit next year?" (Adapted from Economist June 13th 1992, p. 71).
“We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.” (Neil deGrasse Tyson)
“If your experiment needs a statistician, you need a better experiment.” ― Ernest Rutherford
The connection between physics, technology and society can be seen in many examples. The discipline of thermodynamics arose from the need to understand and improve the working of heat engines. The steam engine, as we know, is inseparable from the Industrial Revolution in England in the eighteenth century, which had great impact on the course of human civilisation. Sometimes technology gives rise to new physics; at other times physics generates new technology. An example of the latter is the wireless communication technology that followed the discovery of the basic laws of electricity and magnetism in the nineteenth century. The applications of physics are not always easy to foresee. As late as 1933, the great physicist Ernest Rutherford had dismissed the possibility of tapping energy from atoms. But only a few years later, in 1938, Hahn and Meitner discovered the phenomenon of neutron-induced fission of uranium, which would serve as the basis of nuclear power reactors and nuclear weapons. Yet another impo ...

Gamma radiation, also known as gamma rays, and denoted by the Greek letter γ, refers to electromagnetic radiation of high frequency and therefore high energy per photon. Gamma rays are ionizing radiation, and are thus biologically hazardous. They are classically produced by the decay from high energy states of atomic nuclei (gamma decay), but are also created by other processes. Paul Villard, a French chemist and physicist, discovered gamma radiation in 1900, while studying radiation emitted from radium. Villard's radiation was named "gamma rays" by Ernest Rutherford in 1903. Natural sources of gamma rays on Earth include gamma decay from naturally occurring radioisotopes, and secondary radiation from atmospheric interactions with cosmic ray particles. Rare terrestrial natural sources produce gamma rays that are not of a nuclear origin, such as lightning strikes and terrestrial gamma-ray flashes. Gamma rays are produced by a number of astronomical processes in which very high-energy electrons are produce ...

Whether consciously/unconsciously, I have somehow allowed the subject Chemistry to get the better of me; several decades ago, there was a popular postulate/theory that the Atom was a smallest & indivisible part of an Element. However, a major breakthrough in the field of science, following discoveries by Ernest Rutherford, Henri Becquerel, Marie Curie, Eugene Goldstein among others, proved that an Atom was actually divisible and hence the theory of the indivisibility of an atom was discarded as sub-atomic particles; protons, neutrons, neutrinoes, positrons etc were discovered. . . . . Our Country Nigeria has been indivisible for a century of years, however with the currently increasing Tension, Insecurity and Political Instability etc, i am begining to envisage some subparticulate entities into which our dear country could fragment. I just hope her elastic limit is not exceeded. MAY GOD BLESS NIGERIA!

Ed Regis Science writer; Author, Regenesis Predicting the Future I used to think you could predict the future. In "Profiles of the Future," Arthur C. Clarke made it seem so easy. And so did all those other experts who confidently predicted the paperless office, the artificial intelligentsia who for decades predicted "human equivalence in ten years," the nanotechnology prophets who kept foreseeing major advances toward molecular manufacturing within fifteen years, and so on. Mostly, the predictions of science and technology types were wonderful: space colonies, flying cars in everyone's garage, the conquest (or even reversal) of aging. (There were of course the doomsayers, too, such as the population-bomb theorists who said the world would run out of food by the turn of the century.) But at last, after watching all those forecasts not come true, and in fact become falsified in a crashing, breathtaking manner, I began to question the entire business of making predictions.
