Things are flying in the physics world and there’s amazing things going on economically. And I owe some posts on these subjects.
But right now, more important for the brotherhood of blogs, is one of our own; Boudicca needs us. Her brain is at stake. a natural math talent could go to mush. We need to get her to quit marathoning (at age 43) and start doing mathematics again. We should start with the complex numbers. Right now she’s spending too much time quilting, and not enough time doing math.
Her husband is an Italian who won’t bury his gunshot victims in the backyard. And that’s not counting the hamsters and fish. Other than regarding small animals, her family and friends are nice. And she’s bet a bikini picture that Obama wins.
So get off your duffs and help Bou’s brain. She needs math problems now! Use 1st or 2nd year college algebra with a level somewhere on the 100 yard dash side of the running spectrum. We can give her the ravioli run later, after she’s built that brain back up.
