Girls like guys with skilz




This afternoon the sun turned to cold rain, but I got some pics before it got bad. I did learn a new skill - rolling laudry so it won't wrinkle when I travel. Next I am going to learn to juggle while on a unicycle.

Also, here is a picture from Pete. Crazy story: Pete is an MCW student who is here in Maine doing a Cardiology rotation. We talked to each other just days before leaving on our trips not realizing that we were both destined for the same location! Here he is sweetly helping his wife with a Physics/Statistics class. Wow! Talk about a true test of marriage!

physics is yucky.

Physics is not yucky nor is it ucky for that matter. P.S. this is the Alex man. Your main physics go to guy.

Physics is okay with me. Its chemistry that is yucky.

By the way, that is very nice of Pete, working a 36 hour shift and then helping his wife out with the physics.

Here is an interesting read - this guy came to MIAD a couple of years back - an interesting fellow...a doc (from UMICH) who loves art and has written several books. In ART AND PHYSICS Leonard Shlain proposes that the visionary artist is the first member of a culture to see the world in a new way.

Then, nearly simultaneously, a revolutionary physicist discovers a new way to think about the world. Working his way through the classical, medieval, Renaissance and modern eras, Shlain shows how the artists' images when superimposed on the physicists' concepts create a compelling fit.

Shlain juxtaposes specific art works of famous artists alongside the ideas of great thinkers. For example - Giotto and Galileo, da Vinci and Newton, Picasso and Einstein, Duchamp and Bohr, Matisse and Heisenberg, and Monet and Minkowski.

Works for me.

I'll pay for a tutor, even a long-distance phone tutor...

any takers?

Paging Mr. Alex Man...

Alex can explain physics to me and that means he's pretty darn good at explaining. I suggest Maeve contact him.

Mr. Physics said...

I can always try. I'll give a call.

I'm glad TheHalblog could help a physics student in need!
