Song #49 Feb. 18 An isosceles triangle is a triangle with (at least) two equal sides. In the figure above, the two equal sides have length and the remaining side has length . This property is equivalent to two angles of the triangle being equal. An isosceles triangle therefore has both two equal sides and two equal angles. The name derives from the Greek iso (same) and skelos (leg). Listen for the equal rising and falling sounds through the piece. •

Song #51 Feb. 20 Went to breakfast with a retired teacher friend - i told him i was looking for some poetry of nature from the 1800's and he said to try this poet. He is also a distant relative of the author! William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878) born Nov. 3, 1794 , Cummington, Mass died June 12, 1878 , New York City 1794-1878, American poet and newspaper editor, b. Cummington, Mass. The son of a learned and highly respected physician, Bryant was exposed to English poetry in his father's vast library. As a boy he became devoted to the New England countryside and was a keen observer of nature. In his early poems such as "Thanatopsis," "To a Waterfowl," "Inscription for the Entrance to a Wood," and "The Yellow Violet," all written before he was 21, he celebrated the majesty of nature in a style that was influenced by the English romantics but also reflected a personal simplicity and dignity. •
Ellipsoid Thanatopsis.mp3

Song #52 Feb. 21 Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862) was an American author, naturalist, transcendentalist, pacifist, tax resister and philosopher who is famous for Walden on simple living amongst nature, and On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, on resistance to civil government and among 22 other books that Thoreau published. These are my favorite quotes that i have put up in my room. •
Thoreau's Path To Singularity.mp3

Song #53 Feb. 22 A poetic pause :) is life circular? spiraling faster and faster towards the opening to a new beginning? minutes, seconds and hours are certainly speeding up :) •
Cylindrical Life.mp3

Song #54 Feb. 23 Busy day and night at work. Huge project completed :) worked on lunch, after work , after dinner - late night - about four hours throughout the day, but spread out. ANYHOW... here is a song for the wayward traveler. •
Spherical Harmonic.mp3

Song #55 Feb. 24 Following the shape theme :) The shy Selkies are marine creatures in the shape of a seal. They can be found near the islands of Orkney and Shetland. A female can shed her skin and come ashore as a beautiful woman. When a man finds the skin, he can force the Selkie to be a good, if somewhat sad, wife. Should she ever recover the skin, she will immediately return to sea, leaving her husband behind. The male Selkies are responsible for storms and also for the sinking of ships, which is their way of avenging the hunting of seals. Following the Scottish theme are some famous Scottish quotes :) the last one is especially true :) •
Scottish Selkie.mp3

Song #56 Feb. 25 What are the shape of things to come? Who can say? I used to write short stories as a kid about the future - heck even as an adult i tried, but never finished a science fiction novel "Malubar's Conquest" maybe someday when i have more time :) - i wrote the first 4 chapters and the technical guide to this universe and it's properties. THINK about YOUR future... (i will too ) :) •
A Shape of Things to Come.mp3

Song #57 Feb. 26 The name says it all - abstract sounds with a unifying mellow latin guitar - that's what keeps the piece accessible to the listener - a string of abstract sounds would be quite boring :) •
Shapeless Wonder.mp3

Song #58 Feb. 27 Well, I originally thought that a play on rhythms - every changing through a song would be cool - it wasn't :) - so i changed directions - it's every changing rhythms with a synth hook, alternating with a different drum fills, and then after every to or three patterns - a nice hook that makes everything whole. •
The Shape of Rhythm.mp3

Song #59 Feb. 28 Well - this shape thing has to come to an end :) - at what will March bring? Only the muse knows :) - The End •
The End of All Shapes.mp3

Song #60 Mar. 1 Why is the sky blue? A clear cloudless daytime sky is blue because molecules in the air scatter blue light from the sun more than they scatter red light.  When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange colors because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight. The white light from the sun is a mixture of all colors of the rainbow.  This was demonstrated by Isaac Newton, who used a prism to separate the different colors and so form a spectrum. Listen for the blue sky jay in the chorus :) •
Blue Sky Jay.mp3

Song #61 Mar. 2 Green, one of most-often cited favorite colors. It represents nature, environment, health, good luck, renewal, youth, vigor, spring, generosity, fertility, jealousy, inexperience, envy, misfortune. "Its cool quality soothes, calms, and has great healing powers." It is often worn in operating rooms by surgeons. Green is currently the most popular decorating color, green symbolizes nature. It is the easiest color on the eye and can improve vision. It is a calming, refreshing color. People waiting to appear on TV sit in "green rooms" to relax. Hospitals often use green because it relaxes patients. Brides in the Middle Ages wore green to symbolize fertility. Green creates feelings of comfort, relaxation, calmness. It helps us balance and soothe our emotions. Some attribute this to its connection with nature and our natural feelings of affiliation with the natural world when experiencing the color green. •
You've Got The Green Light.mp3

Song #62 Mar. 3 Red is the color that we pay the most attention to. It is the warmest and most energetic color in the spectrum. We associate red with love, valentines, danger, desire, speed, strength, violence, anger, emergency exit signs, stop signs and blood. Since it is an extreme color, red clothing might not help people in negotiations or confrontations. Red cars are popular targets for thieves. In decorating, red is usually used as an accent. Decorators say that red furniture should be perfect since it will attract attention. •
Red Zone.mp3

Song #63 Mar. 4 Solid, reliable brown is the color of earth and is abundant in nature. Light brown implies genuineness while dark brown is similar to wood or leather. Men are more apt to say brown is one of their favorite colors. This color brings feelings of stability and security. •
Brown Cow.mp3

Song #64 Mar. 5 Orange is the color of flesh, or the friendly warmth of the hearth fire. The positive implications of this color suggest approachability, informality. Also, it can be beneficial to the digestive system and can strengthen the immune system. Orange has shown to have only positive affects on your emotional state. Orange opens your emotions and is a terrific antidepressant. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation. To the human eye, orange is a very hot color, so it gives the sensation of heat. Nevertheless, orange is not as aggressive as red. Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity. As a citrus color, orange is associated with healthy food and stimulates appetite. Orange is the color of fall and harvest. •
Peaceful Orange Peel.mp3

Song #65 Mar. 6 Both red and pink denote love but while red is hot passion, pink is romantic and charming. Use pink to convey playfulness (hot pink flamingoes) and tenderness (pastel pinks). Multiple shades of pink and light purple or other pastels used together maintain the soft, delicate, and playful nature of pink. Add strength with darker shades of pinks and purple and burgundy. Pink is the sweet side of red. It's cotton candy and bubble gum and babies. •
Pretty Pinkie.mp3

Song #66 Mar. 7 Purple is royalty. A mysterious color, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. The opposites of hot red and cool blue combine to create this intriguing color. Purple has a special, almost sacred place in nature: lavender, orchid, lilac, and violet flowers are often delicate and considered precious. Because purple is derived from the mixing of a strong warm and strong cool color it has both warm and cool properties. A purple room can boost a child's imagination or an artist's creativity. •
Born To The Purple.mp3

Song #67 Mar. 8 Gray symbolizes: Sorrow, security, maturity, neutrality. People who favor gray can be the lone wolf type or narrow-minded. Gray with more silver in it can be a very active color. Native Americans associate gray with friendship. Gray is the symbol for security, maturity and dependability. It connotes responsibility and conservative practicality. Gray is the true neutral color. Its energy imparts void, emptiness, lack of movement, emotion, warmth and identifying characteristics. It was grey in the morning , then and noon and what a surprise grey in the evening - welcome to march in Chicago :) •
Grey Is The Day.mp3

Song #68 Mar. 9 Turquoise is a mid-value color blend of blue and green. The term comes from the French for "Turkish". Teal, blue-green, and aqua are similar colors. In holistic medicine, the color turquoise purportedly has a calming effect on patients. In astrology, the color corresponds to the sign of Aquarius. In slang form, the phrase "the Turquoise" refers to the waters of the Caribbean, which are shallow and therefore take on the color in sunlight. •

Song #69 Mar. 10 The perfect choice if you feel overworked, overstressed or overwhelmed. It helps calm your home and bring forward a peaceful feeling. •
Fuchsia Fonker.mp3

Song #70 Mar. 11 In the Western world, black is most often used with a negative connotation. The reasons for this are various, but the most widely accepted explanations are that night is experienced by humans as negative and dangerous. A secondary reason is that stains are most visible as dark additions to pale materials. However, black can have positive symbolism. In Western fashion, black is considered reliably stylish. The colloquialism "the new black" is a reference to the latest trend or fad, on the basis that black is always fashionable. Black is seen as a color of seriousness and authority. •
The New Black.mp3

Song #71 Mar. 12 White is the color of purity, cleanliness and truth. Brides wear white in many countries, because white symbolizes a virgin. White means kindness. In some cultures white is worn at funerals. White is Monday's color. White daisies are a symbol of loyal love. Strictly speaking, white is not a color, but the manifestation of the presence of all color - the complete energy of light. It stands for wholeness and completion. •
The Old White.mp3

Song #72 Mar. 13 The Cyanic Gene Pool lives in a confusing world. There’s the DNA strand played by the hi hat that unites everything together. The double helix is represented by the various sounds that repeat throughout the piece or ‘er a strand. It is a messy - gooey place :) •
Cyanic Gene Pool.mp3

Song #73 Mar. 14 Indian Red - A very nice piece and place :) - Picture in your mind's eye - you - standing on a secluded, peaceful canyon rim - with the sun slowing rising - then an Indian beat starts to stir - then a male chant is heard - all of this with rays of sun and warmth coming through :) nice place - i should go there :) •

Song #74 Mar. 15 The Country - take a big deep breath - close your eyes and take the picture in - fresh air :) - green pastures :) - endless evergreen forests :) - and trails that go on as far as the eye can see.

Song #77 Mar. 18 Tickle The Ivory :) History of the Piano - Bartolomeo Cristofori (di Francesco) The piano first known as the pianoforte developed from the harpsichord around 1720, by Bartolomeo Cristofori of Padua, Italy. The instrument was already over a hundred years old by the time Beethoven was writing his last sonatas, around the time when it ousted the harpsichord as the standard keyboard instrument. The piano has had a central place in music since the middle of the eighteenth century. Around 1780, the upright piano was created by Johann Schmidt of Salzburg, Austria and later improved in 1802 by Thomas Loud of London whose upright piano had strings that ran diagonally. •

Song #80 Mar. 21 Gold symbolizes: wealth, prosperity, wisdom. It is no surprise that gold symbolizes wealth used wisely, but it is also the symbol of good health. People who favor the color gold are optimistic. There's Gold in Them There Hills :) - But just because it might sparkle it doesn't mean that it's gold. :) •
All That Glitters Is Not Gold.mp3

Song #81 Mar. 22 Silver often symbolizes riches, just as gold does. Silver can be glamorous and distinguished. While gray-haired men and women are seen as old, silver-haired denotes a graceful aging. Silver is the traditional Twenty-Fifth Wedding Anniversary gift. The color silver can be earthy, natural or sleek and elegant. Silver screen - movies, especially classic movies. Silver-tongued - witty, eloquent speaker. •
Born With A Silver Spoon.mp3

Song #82 Mar. 23 Tis teal today - characteristics include: friendliness, dependability, freshness, non-threatening, safe, secure, healthy, strong, expensive, and primitive. In the business world, green symbolizes growth and prosperity - i had a great teal colored Toyota once:) died after 10 years on Illinois highway 39 south of rockford at about 11pm in a huge lightning thunderstorm - not fun. The car simply stopped running and rolled to a stop. •
Tis Teal.mp3

Song #83 Mar. 24 Indigo symbolizes: intuition, deep contemplation, meditation - indigo is the color of the deep midnight sky - indigo symbolizes a mystical borderland of wisdom, self-mastery and spiritual realization - while blue is the color of communication with others, indigo turns the blue inward, to increase personal thought, profound insights, and instant understandings. •

Song #85 Mar. 26 CHOCOLATE! :) Those who know me - get this one :) The tasty secret of the cacao (kah KOW) tree was discovered 2,000 years ago in the tropical rainforests of the Americas. The pods of this tree contain seeds that can be processed into chocolate. The story of how chocolate grew from a local Mesoamerican beverage into a global sweet encompasses many cultures and continents. The first people known to have made chocolate were the ancient cultures of Mexico and Central America. These people, including the Maya and Aztec, mixed ground cacao seeds with various seasonings to make a spicy, frothy drink. •

Song #92 Apr. 2 Green tea with lemon - the secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. it has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots.  the latter takes on added importance when you consider that thrombosis (the formation of abnormal blood clots) is the leading cause of heart attacks and stroke. •

Song #182 Jul 1 Certainly one of the greatest scientists who ever lived, Isaac Newton (1642-1727) had a profound impact on astronomy, physics, and mathematics. Among his many achievements were the invention of the reflecting telescopeóthe basic design behind all large telescopes used today; the invention of a branch of mathematics known as calculus, a critical tool throughout science; the elucidation of the three laws of motion; and the development of the law of universal gravitation. Until the coming of general relativity in the 20th century, Newtonís theories were the basis for all cosmological models. When still in his mid-twenties, he was named Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge the post now held by Stephen Hawking. •

Song #183 Jul 2 Johannes Kepler was born in1571 in Weil der Stadt. There he was introduced to the ideas of Copernicus and delighted in them. In 1596, while a mathematics teacher in Graz, he wrote the first outspoken defense of the Copernican system, the Mysterium Cosmographicum. Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion The First Law: Planets move in ellipses with the Sun at one focus. The Second Law: The radius vector describes equal areas in equal times. The Third Law: The squares of the periodic times are to each other as the cubes of the mean distances. •

Song #184 Jul 3 Albert Einstein was born at Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany, in 1879. In 1901, the year he gained his diploma, he acquired Swiss citizenship and, as he was unable to find a teaching post, he accepted a position as technical assistant in the Swiss Patent Office. In 1905 he obtained his doctor's degree. During his stay at the Patent Office, and in his spare time, he produced much of his remarkable work and in 1908 he was appointed Privatdozent in Berne. In 1909 he became Professor Extraordinary at Zurich, in 1911 Professor of Theoretical Physics at Prague, returning to Zurich in the following year to fill a similar post. In 1914 he was appointed Director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Physical Institute and Professor in the University of Berlin. He became a German citizen in 1914 and remained in Berlin until 1933 when he renounced his citizenship for political reasons and emigrated to America to take the position of Professor of Theoretical Physics at Princeton*. He became a United States citizen in 1940 and retired from his post in 1945. Einstein always appeared to have a clear view of the problems of physics and the determination to solve them. He had a strategy of his own and was able to visualize the main stages on the way to his goal. He regarded his major achievements as mere stepping-stones for the next advance. At the start of his scientific work, Einstein realized the inadequacies of Newtonian mechanics and his special theory of relativity stemmed from an attempt to reconcile the laws of mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. He dealt with classical problems of statistical mechanics and problems in which they were merged with quantum theory: this led to an explanation of the Brownian movement of molecules. He investigated the thermal properties of light with a low radiation density and his observations laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. In the 1920's, Einstein embarked on the construction of unified field theories, although he continued to work on the probabilistic interpretation of quantum theory, and he persevered with this work in America. He contributed to statistical mechanics by his development of the quantum theory of a monatomic gas and he has also accomplished valuable work in connection with atomic transition probabilities and relativistic cosmology. After his retirement he continued to work towards the unification of the basic concepts of physics, taking the opposite approach, geometrisation, to the majority of physicists. He died on April 18, 1955 at Princeton, New Jersey. •

Song #185 Jul 4 Galileo Galilei 1564 -1642 "I do not feel obliged to believe that the same god who has endowed us with sense, reason and intellect has intended us to forgo their use." -Galileo As a professor of astronomy at University of Pisa, Galileo was required to teach the accepted theory of his time that the sun and all the planets revolved around the Earth. Galileo's support for the heliocentric theory got him into trouble with the Roman Catholic Church. In 1633 the Inquisition convicted him of heresy and forced him to recant (publicly withdraw) his support of Copernicus. They sentenced him to life imprisonment, but because of his advanced age allowed him serve his term under house arrest at his villa outside of Florence, Italy. Galileo's originality as a scientist lay in his method of inquiry. First he reduced problems to a simple set of terms on the basis of everyday experience and common-sense logic. Then he analyzed and resolved them according to simple mathematical descriptions. The success with which he applied this technique to the analysis of motion opened the way for modern mathematical and experimental physics. •

Song #186 Jul 5 Stephen Hawking - In March 1959 Hawking took the scholarship examinations with the aim of studying natural sciences at Oxford. He was awarded a scholarship, despite feeling that he had performed badly, and at University College he specialized in physics in his natural sciences degree. From Oxford, Hawking moved to Cambridge to take up research in general relativity and cosmology. After completing his doctorate in 1966 Hawking was awarded a fellowship at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. He became Professor of Gravitational Physics at Cambridge in 1977. In 1979 Hawking was appointed Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge. The man born 300 years to the day after Galileo died now held Newton's chair at Cambridge. Continuing this work on black holes, Hawking discovered in 1970 a remarkable property. Using quantum theory and general relativity he was able to show that black holes can emit radiation. His success with proving this made him work from that time on combining the theory of general relativity with quantum theory. In 1971 Hawking investigated the creation of the Universe and predicted that, following the big bang, many objects as heavy as 109 tons but only the size of a proton would be created. These mini black holes have large gravitational attraction governed by general relativity, while the laws of quantum mechanics would apply to objects that small. •

Song #187 Jul 6 Enrico Fermi - In 1926, Fermi discovered the statistical laws, nowadays known as the «Fermi statistics», governing the particles subject to Pauli's exclusion principle (now referred to as «fermions», in contrast with «bosons» which obey the Bose-Einstein statistics). During the early years of his career in Rome he occupied himself with electrodynamic problems and with theoretical investigations on various spectroscopic phenomena. But a capital turning-point came when he directed his attention from the outer electrons towards the atomic nucleus itself. In 1934, he evolved the ß-decay theory, coalescing previous work on radiation theory with Pauli's idea of the neutrino. Following the discovery by Curie and Joliot of artificial radioactivity (1934), he demonstrated that nuclear transformation occurs in almost every element subjected to neutron bombardment. This work resulted in the discovery of slow neutrons that same year, leading to the discovery of nuclear fission and the production of elements lying beyond what was until then the Periodic Table. In 1938, Fermi was without doubt the greatest expert on neutrons, and he continued his work on this topic on his arrival in the United States, where he was soon appointed Professor of Physics at Columbia University, N.Y. (1939-I942). Upon the discovery of fission, by Hahn and Strassmann early in 1939, he immediately saw the possibility of emission of secondary neutrons and of a chain reaction. He proceeded to work with tremendous enthusiasm, and directed a classical series of experiments which ultimately led to the atomic pile and the first controlled nuclear chain reaction. This took place in Chicago on December 2, 1942 - on a squash court situated beneath Chicago's stadium. He subsequently played an important part in solving the problems connected with the development of the first atomic bomb (He was one of the leaders of the team of physicists on the Manhattan Project for the development of nuclear energy and the atomic bomb.) •

Song #188 Jul 7 Thomas Alva Edison - born 1847, Milan, Ohio, U.S. d. Oct. 18, 1931, West Orange, N.J. American inventor who, singly or jointly, held a world record 1,093 patents. In addition, he created the world's first industrial research laboratory. Edison was the quintessential American inventor in the era of Yankee ingenuity. He began his career in 1863, in the adolescence of the telegraph industry, when virtually the only source of electricity was primitive batteries putting out a low-voltage current. Before he died, in 1931, he had played a critical role in introducing the modern age of electricity. From his laboratories and workshops emanated the phonograph, the carbon-button transmitter for the telephone speaker and microphone, the incandescent lamp, a revolutionary generator of unprecedented efficiency, the first commercial electric light and power system, an experimental electric railroad, and key elements of motion-picture apparatus, as well as a host of other inventions. •

Song #189 Jul 8 Carl Edward Sagan (1934 - 1996) was an American astronomer and science popularizer. He pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence (SETI). He is world-famous for his popular science books and the television series Cosmos, which he co-wrote and presented. In his works he frequently advocated the scientific method. From Cosmos and his frequent appearances on The Tonight Show, Sagan became associated with the catch phrase "billions and billions." Carl Sagan also wrote an introduction for the best selling book by Stephen Hawking, A Brief History of Time. The landing site of the unmanned Mars Pathfinder spacecraft was renamed the Carl Sagan Memorial Station in honor of Dr. Sagan on July 5, 1997. Asteroid 2709 Sagan is also named in his honor. •

Song #190 Jul 9 Ben Franklin - 1706 - 1790, Philadelphia - pseudonym Richard Saunders - American printer and publisher, author, inventor and scientist, and diplomat. He invented a stove, still being manufactured, to give more warmth than open fireplaces; the lightning rod and bifocal eyeglasses also were his ideas. Grasping the fact that by united effort a community may have amenities which only the wealthy few can get for themselves, he helped establish institutions people now take for granted: a fire company, a library, an insurance company, an academy, and a hospital. In some cases these foundations were the first of their kind in North America. In the 1740s electricity was a novel and fashionable subject. It was introduced to Philadelphians by an electrical machine sent to the Library Company by one of Franklin's English correspondents. In the winter of 1746-47, Franklin and three of his friends began to investigate electrical phenomena. The Philadelphia weather favored them, as did the availability of talented instrument makers. Ingenious experiments and machines were devised and described in personal letters to England, which were relayed to the Royal Society of London or the Gentleman's Magazine. These papers were collected in 1751 as Experiments and Observations on Electricity and were translated into French (1752), German (1758), and Italian (1774). Franklin's fame spread rapidly. The experiment he suggested to prove the identity of lightning and electricity was first made in France before he is believed to have tried the simpler but dangerous expedient of flying a kite in a thunderstorm. He and his associates concluded early that the "Electrical Fire" was "an Element diffused among, and attracted by other matter, particularly by Water and Metals." When a body with an over quantity approached one with an under quantity, a discharge equalized the electrical fire in the two. •

Song #191 Jul 10 Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman - Sir C. V. Raman (1888-1970) Raman joined the Indian Audit and Accounts Service and was appointed the Assistant Accountant General in the Finance Department in Kolkata. In Kolkata, he sustained his interest in science by working in the laboratory of the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, in his spare time studying the physics of stringed instruments and Indian drums. In 1917, Raman gave up his government job to become the Sir Taraknath Palit Professor of Physics at the Science College of University of Calcutta (1917-33). He made enormous contributions to research in the areas of vibration, sound, musical instruments, ultrasonics, diffraction, photoelectricity, colloidal particles, X-ray diffraction, magnetron, dielectrics, etc. In particular, his work on the scattering of light during this period brought him world-wide recognition. His discovery is now known as the Raman Effect. •

Song #192 Jul 11 Charles Darwin 1809 - 1882 Darwin was an English naturalist renowned for his documentation of evolution and for his theory of its operation, known as Darwinism. His evolutionary theories, propounded chiefly in two works--On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859) and The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex (1871)--have had a profound influence on subsequent scientific thought. Darwin thus enjoyed a secure position in the professional upper middle class that provided him with considerable social and professional advantages. On the Origin of Species. When Darwin returned to England in 1836 he was welcomed by the scientific fraternity as a colleague and was promptly made a fellow of the Geological Society. The next year he was elected to its governing council. •

Song #193 Jul 12 Alexander Bell in Edinburgh on March 3, 1847, he later adopted the middle name Graham out of admiration for Alexander Graham, a family friend. Many called Bell "the father of the Deaf." This title may be regarded as somewhat ironic due to his belief in the practice of eugenics. While both his mother and his wife were deaf, he hoped to one day eliminate hereditary deafness from the population. Bell speaking into prototype model of the telephone At Boston University he continued his research in the same field, and endeavored to produce a telephone which would not only send musical notes, but articulate speech. With financing from his American father-in-law, on March 7, 1876, the U.S. Patent Office granted him Patent Number 174,465 covering "the method of, and apparatus for, transmitting vocal or other sounds telegraphically … by causing electrical undulations, similar in form to the vibrations of the air accompanying the said vocal or other sound", the telephone. After obtaining the patent for the telephone, Bell continued his many experiments in communication, which culminated in the invention of the photophone-transmission of sound on a beam of light — a precursor of today's optical fiber systems. He also worked in medical research and invented techniques for teaching speech to the deaf. The range of Bell's inventive genius is represented only in part by the eighteen patents granted in his name alone and the twelve he shared with his collaborators. These included fourteen for the telephone and telegraph, four for the photophone, one for the phonograph, five for aerial vehicles, four for hydroairplanes, and two for a selenium cell. Bell had many ideas that were later realized in inventions. During his Volta Laboratory period, Bell and his associates considered impressing a magnetic field on a record, as a means of reproducing sound. Although the trio briefly experimented with the concept, they were unable to develop a workable prototype. They abandoned the idea, never realizing they had glimpsed a basic principle which would one day find its application in the tape recorder, the hard disc and floppy disc drive, and other magnetic media. Bell's own home used a primitive form of air conditioning, in which fans blew currents of air across great blocks of ice. He also anticipated modern concerns with fuel shortages and industrial pollution. Methane gas, he reasoned, could be produced from the waste of farms and factories. At his Canadian estate in Beinn Bhreagh, Nova Scotia, he experimented with composting toilets and devices to capture water from the atmosphere. In a magazine interview published shortly before his death, he reflected on the possibility of using solar panels to heat houses. •

Song #194 Jul 13 Wilbur and Orville Wright - You take your seat at the center of the machine beside the operator. He slips the cable, and you shoot forward. An assistant who has been holding the machine in balance on the rail, starts forward with you, but before you have gone fifty feet the speed is too great for him, and he lets go. Before reaching the end of the track the operator moves the front rudder, and the machine lifts from the rail like a kite supported by the pressure of the air underneath it. The ground under you is at first a perfect blur, but as you rise the objects become clearer. At a height of one hundred feet you feel hardly any motion at all, except for the wind which strikes your face. If you did not take the precaution to fasten your hat before starting, you have probably lost it by this time. The operator moves a lever: the right wing rises, and the machine swings about to the left. You make a very short turn, yet you do not feel the sensation of being thrown from your seat, so often experienced in automobile and railway travel. You find yourself facing toward the point from which you started. The objects on the ground now seem to be moving at much higher speed, though you perceive no change in the pressure of the wind on your face. You know then that you are traveling with the wind. When you near the starting point, the operator stops the motor while still high in the air. The machine coasts down at an oblique angle to the ground, and after sliding fifty or a hundred feet comes to rest. Although the machine often lands when traveling at a speed of a mile a minute, you feel no shock whatever, and cannot, in fact, tell the exact moment at which it first touched the ground. The motor close beside you kept up an almost deafening roar during the whole flight, yet in your excitement, you did not notice it till it stopped. Our experiments have been conducted entirely at our own expense. In the beginning we had no thought of recovering what we were expending, which was not great, and was limited to what we could afford for recreation. Later, when a successful flight had been made with a motor, we gave up the business in which we were engaged, to devote our entire time and capital to the development of a machine for practical uses. As soon as our condition is such that constant attention to business is not required, we expect to prepare for publication the results of our laboratory experiments, which alone made an early solution of the flying problem possible. •

Song #195 Jul 14 Pythagoras is rather known for mathematics than for philosophy. Anyone who can recall math classes will remember the first lessons of plane geometry that usually start with the Pythagorean theorem about right-angled triangles: a2+b2=c2. In spite of its name, the Pythagorean theorem was not discovered by Pythagoras. The earliest known formulation of the theorem was written down by the Indian mathematician in 800BC. The principle was also known to the earlier Egyptian and the Babylonian master builders. However, Pythagoras may have proved the theorem and popularized it in the Greek world. With it, his name and his philosophy have survived the turbulences of history. His immediate followers were strongly influenced by him, and even until today Pythagoras shines through the mist of ages as one of the brightest figures of early Greek antiquity. The Pythagorean theorem is often cited as the beginning of mathematics in Western culture, and ever since mathematics - the art of demonstrative and deductive reasoning- has had a profound influence on Western philosophy. Pythagoras’ influence found an expression in visual art and music as well, particularly in the renaissance and baroque epoch. The far-reaching imprint of his ideas is yet more impressive if we consider that he did not leave any original writings. Instead, all what is known about Pythagoras was handed down by generations of philosophers and historiographers, some of whom, like Heraclitus, opposed his views. In this light it is remarkable that Pythagoras’ teachings have survived relatively undistorted until the present day. •

Song #196 Jul 15 Henry Ford was born on July 30, 1863 in the Detroit, Michigan area. He had an intelligent, inquisitive nature and was energized by the huge growth of industry occurring in the Detroit area. He was also an avid experimenter. Once, in order to prove the power of steam, he plugged up the spout of a tea kettle full of boiling water and it blew apart! As he grew up his father allowed him to "tinker" with many of the tools on the farm. Ford's mother called him a "born mechanic" and provided him with darning needles and corset stays to make into tools for his watch repair work. Probably the most dramatic event in Henry Ford's life happened in 1876 when he was thirteen years old. While riding with his father in a wagon, they saw a steam engine traveling along the road under its own power! Ford jumped off the wagon and excitedly began to question the driver about this remarkable engine. Used for stationary purposes such as sawing wood, the engine had been mounted on wheels to propel itself. The engineer explained all about the machine and even let Ford fire the engine and run it. Ford later said, "That showed me that I was by instinct an engineer." The seed was planted that there could be a self-propelled vehicle and that thought would haunt his imagination for years. It was through working at the Detroit Edison Illuminating Company that Ford met Thomas Edison. At a convention Ford was introduced to Edison as "the young fellow who's made a gas car." After discussing his ideas with the great inventor, Ford was glad to hear that Edison thought his ideas had merit. Edison told him, "Young man, you have it, a self-contained unit carrying its own fuel. Keep at it!" The meeting with Thomas Edison gave Henry Ford fresh inspiration and his spirit was renewed by the famous inventor's words of encouragement. By 1899 Ford had produced an operable car that was written up in the Detroit Journal. Ford was described as a "mechanical engineer." Eventually his work developing automobiles conflicted with his position at the Detroit Edison Illuminating Company. Even though the company was well pleased with his work and offered him the General Superintendent position, they asked him to make a choice. Could he give up his "hobby" of automobile building and devote himself to the company? Ford made the decision. He wanted to make automobiles. After some false starts, on June 16, 1903, with ten investors plus Ford's patents, knowledge and engine, Henry Ford incorporated the Ford Motor Company. The Model T was the ninth model made. It was first marketed in October 1908 and the company dominated sales for the next eighteen years. Because of his development of the assembly line used to mass produce automobiles, Ford sold more than one half of the cars in the industry in 1918-1919 and 1921-1925. The Model T, or Tin Lizzie, was a hard working, sturdy, commonplace car. Ford's dream had come true. "I will build a motor car for the great multitude, constructed of the best materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs that modern engineering can devise, so low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God's great open spaces." Henry Ford and Thomas Edison had become the best of friends. They admired and respected each other. In 1916 Henry Ford purchased Mangoes, the home next door to his friend Edison's Seminole Lodge, so that he and Clara could vacation there while the Edisons were down. The two families enjoyed their time "away from it all" in the tropical serenity of Fort Myers, Florida. Camping expeditions into the Everglades, with Harvey Firestone and his family, plus naturalist John Burroughs, became a special treat. Henry Ford died April 7, 1947. Editorial tributes were favorable to Henry Ford. He was praised as a patriot, philanthropist, philosopher, reformer, economist, and teacher and depicted as a symbol of individualism and productive genius •

Song #197 Jul 16 Dr. Goddard was the first to: • mathematically prove that a rocket can propel in a vacuum (in 1907); • patent the oscillator tube, which was later used in the radio industry (1912); • patent the concept of the multi-stage rocket (in 1914); • prove by testing that rockets can propel in a vacuum (in 1915); • invent the prototype of the bazooka (in 1918); • develop a rocket using liquid fuels (in 1921-1926); • have a liquid-fueled rocket lift its own weight (at Clark University on Dec. 6, 1925); • successfully fire a liquid fuel rocket (in Auburn, MA on March 16, 1926); • launch a rocket with a scientific payload (a barometer and a camera in 1929); • develop gyro stabilization apparatus as an internal guidance system for rockets (in 1932); • use vanes in rocket motor blast for guidance (in 1932); • fire a liquid fuel rocket that traveled faster than the speed of sound (on March 8, 1935); • use a rocket engine pivoted on gimbals controlled by a gyro mechanism (1937). Dr. Goddard also: • was first to use a De Laval (expanding cone) Nozzle in a rocket; • developed the first turbo pumps for a liquid propellant rocket; • used the first pulse-jet engine; • developed the first liquid propellant rocket cluster. •

Song #198 Jul 17 Archimedes was a Greek mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, physicist and engineer. He was killed by a Roman soldier during the sack of the city, despite orders from the Roman general, Marcellus, that he was not to be harmed. (The Greeks said that he was killed while drawing an equation in the sand, and told this story to contrast their high-mindedness with Roman ham-handedness; however, it should be noted that Archimedes designed the siege engines that devastated a substantial Roman invasion force, so his death may have been out of retribution.) Some math historians consider Archimedes to be one of history's greatest mathematicians, along with possibly Newton, Gauss, and Euler. Archimedes was a famous mathematician whose theorems and philosophies became world known. He gained a reputation in his own time which few other mathematicians of this period achieved. He is considered by most historians of mathematics as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. He discovered pi. He was best known for his discovery of the relation between the surface and volume of a sphere and its circumscribing cylinder, for his formulation of a hydrostatic principle Archimedes' principle and for inventing the Archimedes screw (a device for raising water). Archimedes Principal states: an object immersed in a fluid experiences a buoyant force that is equal in magnitude to the force of gravity on the displaced fluid. He also invented things such as the hydraulic screw - for raising water from a lower to a higher level, catapult, the lever, the compound pulley and the burning mirror. In mechanics Archimedes discovered fundamental theorems concerning the center of gravity of plane figures and solids. •

Song #199 Jul 18 Marie Curie was a Polish-born French physicist famous for her work on radioactivity and twice a winner of the Nobel Prize. With Henri Becquerel and her husband, Pierre Curie, she was awarded the 1903 Nobel Prize for Physics. She was then sole winner of the 1911 Nobel Prize for Chemistry. Following Henri Becquerel's discovery (1896) of a new phenomenon (which she later called "radioactivity"), Marie Curie, looking for a subject for a thesis, decided to find out if the property discovered in uranium was to be found in other matter. She discovered that this was true for thorium at the same time as G.C. Schmidt did. •

Song #200 Jul 19 Friedrich Wilhelm (William) Herschel (November 15, 1738 - August 25, 1822) Friedrich Wilhelm Herschel was born in Hannover (Germany) in 1738 as son of Issak Herschel (1707-1767), a musician in the regimental band of the Foot-Guards, and Anna Ilse (b. Moritzen). F.W. Herschel himself became also musician (an oboist) and joined his father and his brother Jacob in that band. In 1759, after experiencing the 1757 battle at Hastenbeck, he and Jacob went to England. Jacob returned to Hannover after two years, but Wilhelm (called William in England) stayed. After teaching music for some time, he became organist at Halifax in 1765, and organist and conductor at Bath in 1766. In 1772, William took home in Bath, and was joined by his sister Caroline. On May 10, 1773, at age 35, William Herschel purchased a copy of Ferguson's book, Astronomy, and found interest in astronomy. Consequently, he started to become a skilled maker of the most powerful telescopes of his time: After 1774, he had acquired skills to make specula mirrors superior to any which had been made before. Moreover, he started to observe the heavens; among his first objects, observed on the 4th of March, 1774, was the Orion Nebula. On March 13, 1781 William Herschel discovered what he first thought to be a comet, but was later found to be planet Uranus. In recognition of this discovery, he was elected to the Royal Society on December 7, 1781, and awarded an annual grant by King George III of England, which enabled him to give up his career in music (on May 19, 1782) and concentrate on astronomy as the Court Astronomer of the King. In 1783, Herschel published his observations leading to the discovery of the Solar Motion. He determined that our solar system is moving between the neighboring stars in the direction of the star Lambda Herculis; he introduced the term Solar Apex for this direction (W.H. 1783). In 1787, William Herschel discovered two moons of Uranus, Titania and Oberon. As the most renowned astronomer of his time, William Herschel contributed significantly to most branches of astronomy: He also investigated the proper motion of stars and derived the peculiar motion of the solar system toward the direction of constellation Hercules, modeled the Milky Way galaxy from stellar statistics, and speculated about the nature of the nebulae, including a discussion of the possibility of external island universes (galaxies) which had been brought up by Kant. He also contributed to physics (especially optics) and, e.g., discovered the infrared light. •

Song #202 Jul 21 Edmond (or Edmund) Halley's father was also called Edmond (or Edmund) Halley. Halley made important observations at Oxford, including an occultation of Mars by the Moon on 21 August 1676, which he published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. It is a little unclear what happened to Halley's undergraduate career, but what is certain is that he gave up his studies in 1676 and sailed to St Helena in the southern hemisphere in November of that year. The most likely explanation is that with the opening of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich in 1675, Flamsteed undertook the task of mapping the northern hemisphere stars and Halley decided to complement this program with undertaking a similar task for the southern hemisphere. From around 1695 Halley made a careful study of the orbits of comets. Newton favored comets having parabolic orbits, but Halley believed that elliptical orbits might exist. Using his theory of cometary orbits he calculated that the comet of 1682 (now called Halley's comet) was periodic and was the same object as the comet of 1531, and 1607. He later also identified this comet with one which appeared in 1305, 1380, and 1456. In 1705 he published his prediction that it would return in 76 years, claiming that it would appear in December 1758. It was not an easy calculation for Halley had to take into account the perturbations to the orbit produced by Jupiter. Although Halley had been dead for fifteen years by 1758, he achieved lasting fame when the comet was observed on 25 December 1758 (very slightly later than Halley expected). Halley's other activities included studying archaeology, geophysics, the history of astronomy, and the solution of polynomial equations. He was an integral part of the English scientific community at the height of its creativity. •

Song #203 Jul 22 Jacques Cassini (Cassini II, February 18, 1677 - April 16, 1756) Together with his father, he was involved in the great degree measurement to improve the geographic knowledge of France. After the death of his father in 1712, he succeeded him as the director of the Paris Observatory. His astronomical activities include observations of Saturn and studies of the proper motion of stars, detecting that Arcturus (Alpha Bootis) had changed its latitude by 5' in 159 years, while neighboring Eta Bootis remained unchanged. In 1740, he published Elements of Astronomy. •

Song #204 Jul 23 Cold fusion is a nuclear fusion reaction that takes place at or near room temperature and normal pressure instead of the millions of degrees required for plasma fusion reactions. Cold fusion is the historical term used to refer to what is now called "low energy nuclear reactions" (LENR), a subset of "condensed matter nuclear science" (CMNS). The initial claims were first reported by Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons at the University of Utah in March of 1989. Because it was presented as a new practical source of energy, this announcement was front-page news for some time, and generated a strong controversy, but the public debate abated quickly and the cold fusion claims were rejected by the mainstream scientific community. •

At the end of the 1970s, Moore's Law became known as the limit for the number of transistors on the most complex chips. However, it is also common to cite Moore's law to refer to the rapidly continuing advance in computing power per unit cost. •
