He is not just a prodigal mathematician but also a brilliant speaker. I still remember him lecturing in Madrid (at the age of 32, he was then already a Full Professor in Princeton) in a overfull lecture hall. I was standing in a corner, many European Professors were kneeling down to any available place in the hall to listen to him throughout his lecture. He started with the Samash-Bhavna (composition) Principle of Brahmagupta and related it to a later work of Gauss and then transcended to his own piece of brilliant work.

Evidence for a group difference in intelligence One observational basis for inferring that Brahmins have high intelligence is their prevalence in intellectually demanding fields. While only about .3% of the U.S. population is of full Brahminical descent,[2] 27% of United States Nobel Prize winners in the 20th century,[2][3] 25% of Fields Medal winners,[4] 25% of ACM Turing Award winners,[2] 6 out of the 19 world chess champions, and a quarter of Westinghouse Science Talent Search winners have either full or partial Brahminical ancestry.[4] However, such statistics do not rule out factors other than intelligence, such as institutional biases and social networks. Undue weight is also given to the Brahmins statistics because people of partial Brahminical ancestry (half or less) are included, but only compared to the portion of the US population of full Brahmintry descent. A more direct approach is to measure intelligence with psychometric tests. Different studies have found different results, but most have f ...
APRIL 18 – BIRTHS – Scientists born on April 18th Charles Louis Fefferman Born 18 Apr 1949. American mathematician who received the Fields Medal in 1978 for his work in mathematical analysis. As a child prodigy, his accelerated schooling resulted a B.S. degrees in physics and mathematics by age 17 and a Ph.D. in mathematics at age 20 from Princeton University (1969). When in he became a professor (1971) at the University of Chicago at the age of 22, he was the youngest full professor ever in the U.S. Two years later, he returned to Princeton as a professor (1973). His Ph.D. dissertation was on “Inequalities for Strongly Regular Convolution Operators.” His field of study includes his interest in physics - applied mathematics in vibrations, heat, turbulence, though he is best known for his theoretical work.

JANUARY 24 – BIRTHS – Scientists born on January 24th Michio Kaku Born 24 Jan 1947. American theoretical physicist. Lars V. Hörmander Born 24 Jan 1931. Swedish mathematician who was awarded the Fields Medal in 1962 for his work on partial differential equations. Spending five years in writing, he produced a text The analysis of linear partial differential operators, in four volumes (1983-85). Between 1987 and 1990 he served as a vice president of the International Mathematical Union. In 1988 Hörmander was awarded the Wolf Prize. Hörmander's text, An Introduction to Complex Analysis in Several Variables, has become a classic dealing with the theory of functions of several complex variables. It developed from lecture notes of a course which he gave in Stanford in 1964 and published in book form two years later, with updates in 1973 and 1990.

Alexander Grothendieck Also Listed In: Mathematicians Famous As: Mathematician Nationality: French Born On: 28 March 1928 AD Zodiac Sign: Aries Famous Arians Born In: Berlin, Prussia, Germany Father: Alexander "Sascha" Shapiro aka Tanaroff Mother: Johanna "Hanka" Grothendieck Education: University of Montpellier, Nancy-Université Works & Achievements: Alexander Grothendieck is a prominent mathematician who is well known for his theories in algebraic geometry, homological algebra and functional analysis. Awards: Fields Medal (1966) Crafoord Prize (1988) One of the foremost mathematicians of 20th century, Alexander Grothendieck is a pioneer of modern algebraic geometry. His contributions to algebraic geometry, homological algebra and functional analysis are so huge and vast, that it antagonised even his most ardent followers who envied him for his achievements. His genius was honoured by 'Fields medal' and the Crafoord prize (co-awarded) though he refused both on ethical grounds. During his long career in ...
I don't claim that religion is not true or that science answers everything. All I can say is that the best way to find out the truth is doubt and answer. And I can live in doubt and uncertainty; in fact I'd prefer that to living with answers to everything. Answers that make no sense; ones which ignore all evidences in existence. I don't do science 'cause its cool or cause its smart, I do it because it objectifies the universe and quantifies our existence. I learn science and hope to solve its mysteries because of, what Richard Feynman would call the "Kick in the discovery". In fact I believe this same principle must be applied by everyone to everything they love. There's never any use working for an achievement subjective as that of the Nobel Prize, Fields Medal, Booker Prize or any of such sort. The sole reason to do anything should be do that thing and not to achieve it. So yes, that does mean that if I ever do fulfil my dream of being a Physicist, the Nobel Prize would never serve any motivation. I am ...

People Who Refused Millionaire Offers 1. The Math Genious Who Turned Down a US$1 million Prize In 2003, Russian mathematician Grigori Perelman solved the seemingly unsolvable Poincaré conjecture, a 100-year-old problem, to prove that any shape without a hole can be formed into a sphere. Considered one of the world's smartest men, Perelman published two proofs of the theorem in 2002 and 2003. It took until 2010 for a team of mathematicians to validate his results. The problem was one of the seven listed on the Cambridge, Massachusetts' Clay Mathematics Institute's Millennium Prize list. The bounty on such a solution is one million dollars and the Fields Medal, math's equivalent of the Nobel Prize. Not bad at all, right? However, right after being offered the prize he turned down the offer. The genius refused the prize, claiming the knowledge gained to be worth more than the financial reward. "I'm not interested in money or fame," Perelman stated. "Emptiness is everywhere and it can be calculated, which gi ...

This is amazingly awesome! - Massively Collaborative Mathematics by JORDAN ELLENBERG In January, Timothy Gowers, a professor of mathematics at Cambridge and a holder of the Fields Medal, math's highest honor, decided to see if the comment section of his blog could prove a theorem he could not. In two blog posts — one titled "Is Massively Collaborative Mathematics Possible?" — he proposed an attack on a stubborn math problem called the Density Hales-Jewett Theorem. He encouraged the thousands of readers of his blog to jump in and start proving. Mathematics is a process of generating vast quantities of ideas and rejecting the majority that don't work; maybe, Gowers reasoned, the participation of so many people would speed the sifting. The resulting comment thread spanned hundreds of thousands of words and drew in dozens of contributors, including Terry Tao, a fellow Fields Medalist, and Jason Dyer, a high-school teacher. It makes fascinating, if forbiddingly technical, reading. Gowers's goals for the so ...
JANUARY 21...   The more personal side of war:      Below is a letter from:...   Richard H. Adams, Jr. who was born April 21, 1842 "Altwood," Marengo County, Alabama. He was the third son of Richard Henry Adams and Anna Carter Harrison. In May 1861 Adams enlisted as a Private in Company D, 5th Alabama Infantry Regiment, and served in various Virginia campaigns until he was severely wounded at Seven Pines. He subsequently served as a staff officer for Gen. Wheeler until September 1863, when he was captured near Nashville, Tennessee. Adams was a prisoner of war from September 1863 through June 1865, and was one a group of prisoners later known as the "immortal 600," --- prisoners placed on Morris Island in Charleston harbor within direct line of fire from artillery and small arms fire from both sides, a human shield. After the war, Adams spent his career as an engineer and later Postmaster in Radford, Virginia. He married Lottie Putnam, with whom he had corresponded throughout the war. Adams died at Ra ...
ack Daniel's is a brand of sour mash Tennessee whiskey that is the highest selling American whiskey in the world.[1][2] It is known for its square bottles and black label. It is produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee by the Jack Daniel Distillery, which has been owned by the Brown-Forman Corporation since 1956.[3] Despite being the location of a major operational distillery, Jack Daniel's home county of Moore is a dry county, so the product is not available for consumption at stores or restaurants within the county, although the distillery does sell commemorative bottles of whiskey. Although the product generally meets the regulatory criteria for classification as a straight bourbon, the company disavows this classification and markets it simply as Tennessee whiskey rather than as Tennessee bourbon.[4][
Pastor Bob Leroe's sermon yesterday @ Cliftondale Congregational Church 50 Essex St. Saugus, Ma. 10:45 Sundays. ”, Colossians 1:9-14; Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts (01/20/13) Earlier this week Lance Armstrong confessed to doping, using performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France. He’s been stripped of his titles and his Olympic medal. We can only imagine the shame he is feeling, especially because the world now knows the truth. Shame is found in many places… Early on in my military career I learned about shame-based cultures. I was assigned to the 2nd Infantry Division in Korea. I quickly found I had two challenges of cultural adaptation: the gung *** Infantry, and living in Asia. The military is a unique sub-culture, and within it are some elite units. The 2nd Infantry’s mottos were “Fit to Fight” & “Second-to-None.” They operated in an advanced state of readiness just below the North Korean border, the DMZ where tensions were ...

I decided to wait until this morning to write how I'm feeling.I guess you would say I felt the need to "cool down" before I typed something I may regret later! I always liked Tom Brady. I always defended him and many times cheered for him and his Patriots. Last night.I lost all respect for him (you noticed I didn't say, "lost all respect for the man".). During "The Stars Spangled Banner" the camera was scanning the players. All were so respectful with hands over hearts, some looking up at the flag, some praying, some singing, some teary eyed...but NOT TOM BRADY! He had his hands in his waist handwarmer, looking down at the ground.kicking the dirt!! Did he really think his hand/throwing arm would get that cold in the 2 minutes it takes to sing one of American's most beautiful songs? Show some respect or leave America! Most true blooded Americans would stand, hand over heart, and have goosebumps running throughout their body...Let me just say that it made my evening to see the Ravens beat the Patriots.so NO ...
Man getting Purple Heart back, 70 years later By Martha Waggoner - The Associated Press Posted : Saturday Jan 19, 2013 16:45:17 EST RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — When Army Cpl. George Hemphill returned to North Carolina from fighting in World War II, he tried to put the horrors of life as an infantryman behind him by not talking about what he had seen. That included not asking about the Purple Heart he had received and mailed home for safekeeping. So imagine his confusion when he learned that a Florida man had purchased his medal in 2000 at an antique store in South Carolina with the hope of one day returning it to its rightful owner. And that a man in Vermont now had his Purple Heart and wanted to return it to him in a ceremony to honor his service. "I'm just flabbergasted," said Hemphill, 90, of Union Mills. "I don't know what to think. They're just going out of their way to give it back to me. I'm just grateful to them for all the work they're doing. And the expense, it's just something. I don't know how to d ...

Cheat or no cheat, what people don't get is that Lance Armstrong has done/been through more in his life then most of us ever will. And now everyone is quick on the blame game to bring him down.
Our own Seight Girl has been at it again. Heres her latest write up! Behind the walls at the Victorian Junior Track Champion ships, our team of three Seight track cycling girls, brought the crowd to their feet as Madison Fitzgerald, Jamie Gooding and Chloe Baggs contested four titles up for grabs over the weekend. For Fitzgerald and Gooding this was their first state championships, not surprisingly they were a little nervous! The Vic State Team is selected based on results at this event so they were feeling the pressure. The events were mainly sprinter orientated, which well suited our main sprinter, Gooding, whilst Baggs and Fitzgerald were focused on enduro event; the individual persuit. The first event was the 500TT, Fitzgerald placed 9th with a time of 42.637, Gooding 6th 41.909. Baggs performed incredibly yet was pipped at the post, her time of 39.023 saw her miss the gold medal by 0.28 of a second. After a short break the qualifying heats for the IP began. Gooding qualified 8th 2.54.260, Fitzgerald ...
If Serena Williams was African i tell u they wud say she has Male genes...Some of the serves she makes oh my.
My take on Lance Armstrong: Lance has said he definitely deserves to serve a ban from cycling, but not a "death sentence" (ie life ban). He feels he should serve a few years, perhaps definitely be banned from the likes of the Tour etc, but be allowed to eventually compete in Mtb and triathlons. I agree with him. Yes he cheated, yes he is a bully, yes it was a disgrace, etc. He says he was levelling the playing field, not cheating - which he defines as gaining an unfair advantage over others. I actually agree - though I do not condone his actions AT ALL. It is now common knowledge that drugs are used by many in the higher echelons of sport, not only cycling. Lance did wrong. He should have admitted his actions from the outset. BUT at least he has - which is more than many. I think he should serve time, then be allowed to come back (but never the Tour). HOWEVER, the truth is no one will ever trust him in sport again. And no matter how one looks at this issue, that is an inescapable truth. So perhaps the iss ...

Lot going on today, but I took a second to mourn the passing of Stan Musial. Never got to see him play with my own eyes, but I read a lot... and there are few men I feel are worthy of emulation. But he was one of them. Read about Stan Musials accomplishments on the baseball field, in a time before steriods, during war and after. He set so many records that they wouldnt all fit on his Hall of Fame Plaque, and that's one thing. Read about the Presidential Medal of Freedom he received, with President Obama describing him as "a man every youth should emulate"... and that's another thing. Read ALL of the autobiographies from St Louis players over the years: Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiaola (who grew up in St Louis worshipping him) Euker and McCarver... read about what other players had to say about him. Read what the men that played with and against him had to say about his 23 year career... and that's even another thing. But it was reading that he died a little over a year after the death of his wife of 70 years ...
Brigadier JOHN ALEXANDER SINTON VC 21/1/1916 Sinton was a highly distinguished figure in the medical world in two rôles: as an army doctor who saw service in both world wars, and as a medical researcher, especially in malariology on which he became an outstanding international expert. He is particularly notable for being the only person to achieve the United Kingdom's highest military award for bravery, the Victoria Cross, and also to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, the United Kingdom organisation whose membership is composed of many of that country's as well as the world's most eminent scientists. Although born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Sinton was nevertheless an Ulsterman through his parents, Walter Lyon Sinton, from a Quaker linen manufacturing family, and Isabella, of the Pringle family of Derrymore House estate, near Bessbrook, County Armagh (which in 1859 had been bought and developed by John Grubb Richardson, member of the prominent Quaker linen-manufacturing family, whose relative ...
History of the Nobel Prizes “If I have 300 ideas in a year and just one turns out to work I am satisfied.” Alfred Nobel Alfred Nobel (1833-1896) Professions: Swedish scientist, inventor and businessman Patents: 355 in several countries Factories: 89 in 20 countries Fortune: In his will he left a fortune to fund the Prizes, equal to today about 265 million dollars (in 2008). Languages: Spoke 5 languages fluently at the age of 17 Family: never married, three brothers Five Nobel Prizes Alfred Nobel, the founder of the Nobel Prizes, was a Swedish chemist, the inventor of dynamite and a businessman. In his last will, he wrote that much of his fortune was to be used to give prizes to those who have done their best for humanity in the field of physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and peace.

my day: 1) Woke up to the alarm at 5:30 am after sleeping like crap. Neighbors had party until 1 am. 2) brought to tea in the car and rode to the light rail station. 3) debated wether or not to leave my jacket in the car or to have to drag it around. 4) brought jacket with me. 5) rode light rail to start line of PF Changs. 6) 7:49 am. couldn't resist petting a cute Maltese. Heard gun go off. Not in corral yet. 7) Didn't care. I am in corral 17 with a wave start. 8) 8:20 am. Reached the start line. Wanted to take jacket off so I could run in my supercute running skirt instead of tying it around my waist. 9) 9:40ish finished Mini Marathon. 5.4 miles. Don't even care that it is snail slow. I didn't train, and my back has been bothering me. If fact, I wasn't even sure if it would hurt me to run. 10) It didn't. received my red finisher medal and a bottle of Arrowhead. I hate Arrowhead, but i was thirsty. was handed Gatorade. Was handed Rockin Refuel (yum). Was handed fruit cup. was han ...
I am still have trouble grasping that in a few months my child will be representing our country in a competition. I know without a doubt he will give it his all! I think I'll break down when I see him all dressed in his USA uniform. It'll be all happy tears when that medal gets put around his neck! : ) As always, thanks for supporting him!

*** poor sportsmanship. the trade mark of southern Augusta county's high school!!
It was 7 p.m. on October 20th, 1968. Only a few spectators remained in the Mexico City Olympic Stadium. The winner of the 26 mile marathon had crossed the finish line more than an hour ago, and now, the last of the marathon runners were across the finish line and leaving the track. As the last few spectators began to leave, those sitting by the entrance suddenly heard the sound of sirens. One last runner appeared at the entrance. The man, whose leg was bloody and bandaged, was wearing the colours of Tanzania. The Tanzanian runner, experiencing intense pain, hobbled around the 400 meter track in the stadium, and the few remaining spectators rose and applauded him as though he was the winner. After crossing the finish line he slowly walked off the field without turning to the cheering spectators. In view of his injury, and having no chance of winning any medal, a curious spectator asked him why he did not quit the race. The Tanzanian runner replied, 'My country did not send me 7000 miles to start the race, ...
Note from the ADMIN: Here's an example of RESPECT that you read about on our page...do you ever visit one of those pages where you see alleged Marines denigrating other Marines where they attempt to talk down to them to make themselves look "more badass" or whatever adjective they are trying to achieve? You may also witness them attempting to talk down to other veterans of other armed forces. Listen up Devil Dogs, this behavior not only makes the alleged Marine look like trash, but it brings disrespect to our United States Marine Corps. There is one aspect about being a Marine that does not EVER NEED to be constantly reminded to anyone. We're MARINES, period. If you have a problem with another Marine, I suggest the Marine you should be talking to is that Marines Drill Instructor(s), not the Marine. I'd also suggest that anyone sitting there behind their computer making such comments would NOT go face to face with that Drill Instructor. The bottom line is, the only people whoever need to constantly at ...
Not expecting a medal or anything, but today I looked after 16 horses and their water, hay and in some cases hard feed needs, dug them new "troughs" in the field stream, mucked out the yard numerous times, AND vacuumed the downstairs of the house, did the dishes once, made soup, made thai curry, and bathed both kids. Also managed to get about 15 rows of my knitting done (long rows). Lazy Sunday? Why, that would be lovely!

Chicken were used during the Gulf Wars to detect poisonous gasses, in an operation called Kuwaiti Field Chicken (KFC); the US marines designation for chicken used in this role was Poultry Chemical Confirmation Devices. The plan was put on hold after 41 of 43 chicken used for such purposes died within a week of arrival in Kuwait. During the First Gulf War, the Weekly World News published a fictional account how such a chicken was awarded a medal after saving a French general's life.

St. Moses the Black When most people think, "Orthodox Christian Saint", the first phrase that pops into their heads generally isn't "skull-crushing badass". Saints are supposed to be skinny bearded dudes in ratty burlap robes who sit around in caves surrounded by lepers. These poor hermits generally earn the right to carry the mantle of Sainthood for accomplishing some crazy abstract nonsense like philosophizing about the nature of the Trinity, writing a bunch of incomprehensible dogmatic theses about God-knows-what, and/or generally just talking about how awesome the Church is. That's just the nature of Christianity; you don't get served Holy Bacon Strips at Jesus' breakfast table when you spend your life face-punching jerks unconscious, setting farmhouses on fire, and threatening people with knives. That is, unless you're Saint Moses the Black. Moses was a big, jacked Ethiopian hardass who left his Central African home in the middle of the 4th century in search of adventures and excitement in the fa ...

Ricardo Kaka: Yeah, It's True Messi Is the Best But CRISTIANO Is Better Then the Best ! He and Cristiano are the best in the world, but in today's game, in the modern game, Cristiano is the most complete player in the world. Cristiano can score goals with his left, with his right, with his head and from set-pieces. Messi is excellent with all the great things he has, but Cristiano is a more complete player than him.' Cristiano is the best player that I have played with. I have played against Zidane, but I did not play with him. C Ronaldo is the best for his genius , Skill and his speed of thought.

getting angry watching The Lance Armstrong interviews. he shouldnt have been given a forum to weazle his way out of his ban and i hope his former sponsors clean him out.
Let me recap the Lance Armstrong case for myself, just to be certain I'm not missing anything crucial: He's a former Olympic star in a sport his own country detests, and cheated to win a bunch of bicycle races. In France. FInally got up the ball to confess to Oprah Winfrey on national TV, causing widespread anxiety. Somewhere, presumably. Still not feeling the panic.
