  1. I am a retired teacher and I like to summarize what I learn. My simply written note, entitled "Using Tasks in Gmail," has just been posted at: http://csam.montclair.edu/~kowalski/tasks.htm It was written for myself, and for other novice users of Gmail. Your critical comments will be appreciated. Feel free to share the above link, and your comments, with anyone who might be interested. Thank you in advance, Ludwik Kowalski, Ph.D. [email protected]

Those who follow the unpecedented Cold Fusion episode might be interested in my new essay; it is posted at: http://pages.csam.montclair.edu/~kowalski/xyz.htm Please share this link with those who might be interested, for example, with journalists, friends, colleagues, students, etc. Or forward this post to them. The essay is not copyrighted; feel free to use it in any way you wish. Comments will be appreciated, as usual. Thank you in advance, Ludwik Kowalski, Ph.D. (see Wikipedia)
  3. Dear Friends, Some of you might be inserted in my short essay, at: http://pages.csam.montclair.edu/~kowalski/food_for_thought.htm Feel free to share it with all who might be interested, especially students. Ludwik Kowalski
  4. A message from a colleague: If you allow me to carry my cynicism a bit further, I would describe the Paris agreement about climate change as a fig leaf. It allows everyone to continue doing what they want while being able to say they tried to stop the seas from rising. They can say to the people being drowned, "we did our best, so stop complaining". Meanwhile, fossil fuels will be phased out only as fast as is convenient and economically beneficial, as would have been the case without the agreement. Meanwhile, everyone can be happy for a little longer. Ludwik Kowalski (see Wikipedia)

  6. Those who have read my essay "What is God," at: http://pages.csam.montclair.edu/~kowalski/god.htm might be interesed in God-related conceptual difficulties of some preachers, quoted at: http://pages.csam.montclair.edu/~kowalski/god2.htm Ludwik Kowalski (see Wikipedia). Please share these links with those who might be interested.
  7. Subatimic particles, I read, existed before the B.B.
  8. I do not remember where I learned (many decades ago) that it is diamond.
  9. The ongoing debates (August 2015) among potential Republican presidential candidates reminded me of a note I posted several years ago. Below is a link to an updated (and hopefully better) version of this note: http://pages.csam.montclair.edu/~kowalski/presidentEN.htm How can a retired teacher miss an opportunity for sharing what he thinks he understands better? Feel free to share the above link with all who might be interested, especially students. Comments will be appreciated, as usual.

  10. Nuclear Iran I agree with those who think the Iran agreement should be supported, first because nothing better seems to be available, second because I suspect that technological means of supervision (to avoid a global catastrophe), are available in the USA. Here is what I have just posted on that subject, at an Internet forum for physics teachers: " ... How can one detect the strongly-enriched uranium, placed either inside or outside of a bomb? I am sure that nuclear physicists have been addressing this problem, in the context of inspecting vessels arriving to our ports, or crossing our bo
  11. Personal Sound Amplifiers (PSA) Hearing aids are very expensive, typically from $3000 to $6000 a pair. But some people might postpone wearing them, for many year. I describe this alternative at my university website: http://csam.montclair.edu/~kowalski/aps.htm Feel free to share this short essay with others. Comments will be appreciated. Ludwik Kowalski (see Wikipedia)

  13. Yes indeed. I also have no doubt that answers in such tests would be "yes" and "no." Ludwik Ludwik described difference would be experimentally confirmed. Ludwik
