Politicians routinely gravitate towards positions of significant influence and responsibility, despite limited or absent experience in managing highly complex systems such as sociteies.. In these positions, they influence (or make) decisions and... continue reading
When recording display holograms, the traditional method of collimating (making parallel) a diverging light beam is to use a parabolic mirror. This is a good method for the least light loss and the most perfect collimation, but the mirror needs to... continue reading
Tabby's Star is a main sequence F-class star (KIC 8462852) observed by the NASA Kepler spacecraft to undergo significant aperiodic dimming activity across a four year baseline. The light curve was noted... continue reading
In the course of the last decade, I formulated what I consider to be something of a law concerning the use of computing in Humanities research:

Discussions at recent workshops have made it clear that one of the key barriers to collaboration between high energy physics and the machine learning community is access to training data. Recent successes in data sharing through the... continue reading
This project’s objective is to create an open source web dashboard capable of searching multiple code hosting services, such as Zenodo, Figshare, and GitHub, for the benefit of the research community. The goal of this dashboard is to demonstrate... continue reading
JBI is quite an exciting platform to write and I intuitively relate it to my Twitter handle. But this article is much beyond how JBI or any other typical journal works. The idea that a country is making any headway in research and development... continue reading
Previous studies have not explored the link between the downstream distance of rivers and increased incidence of arsenic toxicity. We find that in South Asia almost all the sites of arsenic toxicity are close to a river and are furthest from the... continue reading
