Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

May is probably a lovely person. But missing a crucial part of her brain. She is the problem, and the civil servants whom she let run this shambles. And the people have already decided. If there’s another referendum (depending on the choices) it could make things worse: Civil disobedience, riots, b...

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

Paul: as a Brexiteer what is your view on the vote, and the vote of no confidence in May?  My 2 cents is that is all a shambles. The government will win the vote of no confidence, and then we are back to square one and will have wasted 2 years + millions in trying to get something through that is cl...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

What I don't understand is that the illegal boarder crossings are less now than they have been for a number of years, most illegals come through airports. Drugs are traffiked through tunnels and impromptu landing strips.

So why is a Wall needed?

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

Joing two posts: I always thought that the symbol was called nabla and the various vector calculus products were dependent on what you did with it e.g. div, grad or curl. My Electromag lecturer called it nabla. However also my electromag teacher used m and n as a subscript. He had a serif writing an...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

I don't want to give Trump any more credit than he deserves. However he was elected in democratically and he always said that he was going to build a wall.  True. But equally true is the fact that the House Democrats were elected as at least as legally as Trump, and they (AFAIK) clearly said they d...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

Also I am still wondering about the imaginary numbers in the standard wave function (that I borrowed from standard QM), is it somehow also linked to the Old Mystical formula? When  I was a yoof I used  Eisberg and Resnik  I wished I hadn't sold it to go on holiday looking at the Hardcover price tod...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

Hmmm. Something is fishy here.  If a particle is travelling at c , then isn't the Compton wavelength the same as the de Broglie relation? Feynman was lecturing freshman. There are various ways in which you can derive Schrodinger Equation. Positrons being electron moving back in time is purely a hand...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

I suspect that the WaPo was referring to the shear volume of illegals when they said that there is "a bona fide emergency." at the border. I thought the rates of immigration from MX were lower - around the same as 2000. Also there are less male refugees, now many of them are women and children. Why...

Re: UK going to the dogs

FYI I sometimes live in London, sometimes in the countryside and sometimes in the US...it gives me a broader perspective than one gets within the Circle Line!

Was “Passport to Pimlico” on the TV over Xmas?!
Likewise. I Bunbury at weekends. I still voted stay though!

Re: UK going to the dogs

Mayor Khan slammed for turning London’s New Year fireworks show into an EU tribute That is so so so funny. Nothing like sticking two fingers up to Nigel Farage when there is nothing he can do. Most people (apart from Paul W) in London wanted to stay. It won't be long before the UK is cast off as us...
