New Google Doodle Honors Revolutionary Mathematician Emmy Noether

Why Einstein called her a ‘creative mathematical genius’

Emmy Noether was no ordinary person … need proof? How many people do you know can count Albert Einstein as a fan of their work?

The legendary physicist once referred to Noether as, “The most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced,” a fitting endorsement for a mathematician who made groundbreaking contributions to the fields of abstract algebra and theoretical physics, all the while overcoming deep seated sexism in her line of work.

For Noether’s 133rd birthday, it’s best to highlight the mathematician’s numerous accomplishments and shine a light on the influence Noether had on the world.

Noether’s work in algebra revolutionized the fields of mathematics and physics
Emmy Noether may not be a household name, but her compatriot Albert Einstein — someone who definitely is — once called her “the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began.”

Noether, born in a small town in Germany in 1882, would have been 133 on Monday, and Google is celebrating her life with a doodle. She is credited with revolutionizing the fields of mathematics and physics with her theory of non-commutative algebras, where answers are determined by the order in which numbers are multiplied.

After finishing her dissertation in 1907, Noether worked without pay at the university in her hometown of Erlangen for seven years, since women were not allowed to hold academic positions at the time. Her next post at the University of Göttingen was also denied official recognition for four years until 1919, because of objections from the institution’s staff.

She moved to Pennsylvania’s Bryn Mawr College in 1933 after Nazi Germany dismissed Jews from university positions, and died there two years later.

“I thought it would be best to highlight the mathematician’s numerous accomplishments and shine a light on the influence Noether had on the world,” wrote Sophie Diao, the doodle’s artist.

Movie Time …. “Unbroken”!!


~~December 29, 2014~~

YOU CAN NOT OUT RUN THE WAR

Some of you may know that I worked as a physician with the Veterans Administration for almost 28 years. I worked with patients from WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the current conflicts. All deserve their merit but the POW’s are way beyond deserving.

Watching this movie, reminded me of all those that I took care of.

A great movie to watch. Excellent directing job by Angelina Jolie and superb acting job by Jack O’Connell, the British actor who played Zamperini.

BrownBordUn16

Louis Silvie “Louie” Zamperini (January 26, 1917 – July 2, 2014) was an American World War II prisoner of war survivor, Christian inspirational speaker, and Olympic distance runner. Zamperini is the subject of two biographies and the 2014 film Unbroken.

IF YOU CAN TAKE IT, YOU CAN MAKE IT

BrownBord

~~Plot~~

The film opens showing Louis “Louie” Zamperini flying as a bombardier of a United States Army Air Forces B-24 Liberator bomber, during an April 1943 bombing mission against the Japanese-held island of Nauru. The plane is badly damaged in combat, with a number of the crew injured. The brakes of the plane are shot away, but the pilot manages to bring it to a stop at the end of the runway thanks to a lucky flat tire.

The movie then flashes back to Louie’s childhood as a young Italian immigrant boy. Louie was a trouble maker, stealing, drinking liquor, and smoking, to the disappointment of his parents. He was picked on by other kids for being Italian.

One day Louie was caught looking up womens’ dresses from under bleachers during a track meet, and runs. His brother Peter sees how fast he runs, and decides to train him to be a runner. Peter trains Louie everyday to become his best. As he grows, Louie becomes an accomplished distance runner, earning him the nickname “The Torrance Tornado” (he grew up in Torrance, California), and eventually qualifies for the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. Louie does surprisingly well in the Olympics, coming in 8th and setting a record for speed in the final lap in the the 5000 metres race, running it in 56 seconds.

Un10

Returning to the present day, Louie and the surviving crew of the previous mission, along with replacement crewmen, are sent on a search and rescue mission with a plane that had previously been used for spare parts. Louie does not believe that the plane is airworthy, but the others tell him that it is suitable.

During the mission, however, both of the plane’s left engines fail, causing them to crash in the ocean. Louie and two other survivors, Mac and Phil, survive and live on two floating safety rafts. After three days a search plane flies over them but does not see them and they are unable to get its attention.

After 45 days, they get the attention of a Japanese plane which strafes the floating rafts but misses them. On the 46th day Mac dies, leaving only Louie and Phil.

Jap

On the 47th day, Japanese forces capture Louie and Phil and they become prisoners of war. The Japanese force Louie and Phil to tell them what they know about the Allies. Louie tells them that he doesn’t know anything because he’s been stuck on the boat for more than a month. Their captors do not believe them and send Louie and Phil to a POW. camp.

Louie and Phil are separated into different camps. At the camp in Tokyo where Zamperini is sent, he meets a Japanese guard, Mutsuhiro “Bird” Watanabe, who treats him very cruelly, in part because of Zamperini’s status as a former Olympian. “Bird” is especially tough on Louie out of jealousy, beating him often. Louie is given the opportunity to broadcast a message home saying that he is alive. When he refuses to broadcast a second message that would be anti American he is sent back to camp where Watanabe has all the other prisoners punch him for not showing respect.

After two years, Watanabe gets a promotion and is taken out of the camp where Zamperini is being held. Louie is grateful that he is gone. One night the camp is damaged when Tokyo is bombed by American forces. Louie and the other internees are forced to move to another camp where Zamperini discovers that Watanabe is in charge. The prisoners are now put to work loading coal barges. One day after Louis sprains his ankle and is unable to work, “Bird” tells him to lift a giant piece of wood. Louis successfully lifts and holds the wood, angering Watanabe leading to a harsh beating.

Un5

At the end of the war, Zamperini and the other prisoners in the camp are set free to return to their homes.

Back home in America, he kisses the ground and hugs his family.

Fam

At the end of the film there is a slideshow showing what happened after the war. Louis was married and had two children. Phil survived and eventually married his sweetheart. Mutsuhiro “Bird” Watanabe went into hiding for several years and successfully evaded prosecution in spite of being listed in the top 40 most-wanted Japanese war criminals by General Douglas MacArthur. Louie forgave his war-time captors and met with many of them. Watanabe, however, refused to meet with Zamperini.

In January of 1998, Louis had an opportunity to revisit his time as an Olympian when he ran a leg of the Olympic Torch relay for the Winter Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan. He was four days short of his 81st birthday. The site for his leg of the relay was not far from one of the POW camps where he was held during the war.

Zamperini died on July 2, 2014 at age 97.

~~As it appears in …. “

Un19

Watanabe was known as “The Bird,” and had gone into hiding during the American occupation of Japan. However, in 1952, the United States granted amnesty to Japanese war criminals, after which he emerged to become a businessman.

He died in April 2003.

To start the day … “Let there be peace on Earth ….. “!!


~~December 29, 2014~~

LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH

This year is close to its end. It has been a trying year in so many aspects. Conflicts, war, injustices, kidnapping, bombings, invasion of free, established countries, power moves, power grabs, disappointing elections, persecution, inequality, racism, abuse by authority figures, killings …. the list continues. Feel free to add your own.

Soon a new year will start …. can we reverse course?

BBorder

One summer evening in 1955, a group of 180 teenagers of all races and religions, meeting at a workshop high in the California mountains, locked arms, formed a circle and sang a song of peace. They felt that singing the song, with its simple basic sentiment – “Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me,” helped to create a climate for world peace and understanding.

When they came down from the mountain, these inspired young people brought the song with them and started sharing it. And, as though on wings, “Let There Be Peace On Earth” began an amazing journey around the globe. It traveled first, of course with the young campers back to their homes and schools, churches and clubs. Then the circle started by the teenagers began to grow. Soon the song was being shared in all fifty states – at school graduations and a PTA meetings, at Christmas and Easter gatherings and as part of the celebration of Brotherhood Week.

It was a theme for Veteran’s Day, Human Rights Day and U.N. Day. 4-H Clubs and the United Auto Workers began singing it. So did the American Legion, the B’nai B’rith, the Kiwanis Clubs and CORE. It was taped, recorded, copied, printed in song books, and passed by word of mouth.

BBorder

The song spread overseas to Holland, England, France, Germany, Lebanon, South America, Asia and Australia. The Maoris in New Zealand sang it – even the Zulus in Africa sang it.

~~Let There Be Peace On Earth~~

Lyrics

~~Published on Oct 26, 2012~~

Music for a peaceful mind.
“Let There Be Peace On Earth” -Sang by Vince Gill
Written by Jill Jackson Miller (1913-1995) American singer, actress

Jill Jackson’s early life was filled with tragedy and self-doubt. Although she had moderate success as a film star, she tried to kill herself after her marriage fell apart. Her unsuccessful suicide attempt led to a deep spiritual awakening, and after marrying songwriter Sy Miller they co-wrote the 1955 classic song of hope, “Let There Be Peace On Earth and Let It Begin With Me”. She called this song, “life-saving joy of God’s peace and unconditional love.”

Angelika’s Songs …. “All about that bass” by Meghan Trainor!!


~~October 9, 2014~~ 

This is Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter, you may have seen her here a few times. She is 9 years old.

She loves music, as much as I do. She’s been keeping me up to date with some of the new songs that are coming out. She knows the songs but doesn’t know the performer most of the time. I’ve trying to teach her it’s important to also know who is singing. Very frequently, we use the “Shazam” app to identify the singer/band. 

She returned from her summer trip up north, she has started school. I’m a bit behind. She told me I better get on it. So, here I am!!

MEg10

All About That Bass” is the debut single by American artist Meghan Trainor. It was released by Epic Records in June 2014 and was co-written by Meghan Trainor and Kevin Kadish. The song was produced by Kevin Kadish.

All instruments were played by Kevin Kadish (drums, bass and guitars) and David Baron (piano, saxophone, and Hammond B3 organ). Musically, “All About That Bass” is a pop and doo wop song that contains lyrics of body positive themes.

The song was positively received by critics who praised the catchy beat, lyrics, and message. The song has become a commercial success, peaking at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 becoming her first hit single on the chart. Internationally, it has topped the charts in Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom, and peaked within the top ten of the charts in other countries.

Meghan Trainor sings about not being a size 2. And about magazines not being real with all their Photoshop. Come on now, make it stop! And this is such a great message! Show the world you can be whatever you want to be, in each and every size.

And I love this text:

“Yeah, my momma she told me don’t worry about your size
She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night”

Just don’t worry … accept yourself!

Embrace your body… that’s my message to you all!

It’s not just flurries of brightly coloured fish that you’ll spot whilst swimming the warm, turquoise waters off the coast of Cancun.

Just a short kick of the flippers away from Mexico‘s famous diving spot, Manchones Reef, you’ll find a collection of over 400 underwater statues that comprise one of the world’s most unusual museums, the Cancun Underwater Museum.

The waters off the coast of Cancun are some of the best in the world. Jason Decaires Taylor, the artist behind the project, designed the sculptures from ph neutral clay in order to stimulate the growth of coral reef and marine life.

The fever is on …. World Cup FIFA 2014!!


Fif1

~~June 22, 2014~~

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is the 20th FIFA World Cup, a tournament for the men’s football world championship, that is currently taking place in Brazil.

It began on 12 June, with a group stage, and is scheduled to conclude on 13 July with the final. It is the second time that Brazil has hosted the competition, the first being in 1950. Brazil was elected unchallenged as host nation in 2007 after the international football federation, FIFA, decreed that the tournament would be staged in South America for the first time since 1978 in Argentina, and the fifth time overall.

Fif2

The national teams of 31 countries advanced through qualification competitions that began in June 2011 to participate with the host nation Brazil in the final tournament. A total of 64 matches are being played in 12 cities across Brazil in either new or redeveloped stadiums. For the first time at a World Cup finals, match officials are using goal-line technology, as well as vanishing foam for free kicks.

With the host country, all world champion teams since the first World Cup in 1930 – ArgentinaEnglandFranceGermany (who won three times as West Germany), ItalySpain and Uruguay – have qualified for this competition. Spain were the title holders, having defeated the Netherlands 1–0 in the 2010 final to win their first World Cup but they were eliminated after losses in the first two matches at the group stage against Chile and the Netherlands. All seven previous World Cup tournaments staged in the Americas (four in South America and three in North America) were won by South American teams.

Fif3

I am not much into sports. I must confess I don’t know anything about this one. It’s all over the TV. You can see excited spectators everywhere: online, on the news, in the blogosphere. 

I must say, I do like the music. 

Pitbull sings with Brazilian songstress Claudia Leitte and Jennifer Lopez.

I saw a post somewhere talking about one of the songs written for the FIFA World Cup 2014 and someone asked who Pitbull was.

Here they are! 

Are you feeling that futbol fever and yearning for some hot Latin fire?

Well, you’re in luck because Jennifer Lopez and Mr. Worldwide Pitbull performed their song “We Are One” at the opening ceremony for the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Marking the official start of the sexy soccer extravaganza, Brazilian songstress Claudia Leitte, who fluffed up the crowd in anticipation for J-Lo and Pit’s arrival, joined the two pop stars.

J-to-the-L-O, donned in a sexy green leotard, and Pitbull, who is wearing pants that some might call a little too fitted, gave a lively and joyous performance to say the least.

To “declaw” or to not “declaw” …. Cat world!


~~April 15, 2014~~

I have had cats all my life. I know how painful the scratches from those claws can be. I know how destructive they can be on furniture, clothes and any object that would serve as a scratching post. However, never once did I consider the practice of “declawing” even though I didn’t know what it entailed. 

For some reason, I never considered that option. I was talking to an animal activist about the dear cat that I have now. She really really pesky and gets into plenty of trouble. Hence the name: Double Trouble

The kids call her “Kitty“.

However, now that I’ve researched, I know that this would be something I wouldn’t do to any cat.

My friend Martin from …. http://mavadelo.wordpress.com/ …. made the following comment and I will “insert” it here:

DO NOT DECLAW YOUR CAT…. keep your hands of the mittens of your kittens.”

~~Double Trouble~~

Onychectomy, popularly known as declawing, is an operation to surgically remove an animal’s claws by means of the amputation of all or part of the distal phalanges, or end bones, of the animal’s toes. Because the claw develops from germinal tissue within the third phalanx, amputation of the bone is necessary to fully remove the claw. The terms “onychectomy” (origin: Greek ὄνυξ onycho, nail + ἐκτομή ektome, excision) and “declawing” imply mere claw removal, but a more appropriate description would be phalangectomy, excision of toe bone.

Although common in North America, declawing is considered an act of animal cruelty in many countries (see “Declawing practices” below).

A lot of people take the idea of declawing their cat too lightly. Many do not understand what declawing is, thinking that it is some form of simply clipping the cat’s claws.

Too frequently, vets and clinic staff deliberately misinform and mislead clients into believing that declawing removes only the claws in the hopes that clients are left with the impression that the procedure is a “minor” surgery that doesn’t involve amputation of the end of the toe, ligaments and tendons.

In fact, this is a mutilating surgery that is banned in some countries due to its abusive and inhumane nature. These countries include, but are not limited to England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Slovenia, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.

~~8 Reasons Why You Should Never Declaw Your Cats~~

Many people falsely assume that declawing is just like trimming your nails or getting a manicure. In reality, it is a painful and permanently crippling procedure.

The following are eight reasons why you should never declaw your feline friend

Ouch!

Cats scratch to exercise and enjoy themselves, maintain the condition of their nails, and stretch their muscles.

While we hope that your cat remains safely indoors at all times, if he or she were ever to get outside without claws, your cat would be far more vulnerable to predators and abusers.

Many people think that declawed cats are safer around babies, but in fact, the lack of claws makes many cats feel so insecure that they tend to bite more often as a means of self-protection.

Cats are in pain when they awake from the surgery, and the pain continues afterward. Nails can grow back inside the paw, causing extreme pain that you can’t see.

Without claws, even house-trained cats might start “doing their business” outside the litter-box in an attempt to mark their territory.

Our toes are crucial to our balance, and it’s no different for cats! Because of impaired balance after the procedure, declawed cats have to relearn how to walk, much as a person would after losing his or her toes.

Nearly two dozen countries — including Australia, England, and Japan — ban or severely restrict declawing surgeries. And many veterinarians in the United States refuse to perform the procedure.

~~What You Can Do Instead~~

Trim your cat’s nails regularly. When the cat is relaxed and unafraid, gently press on his or her toes until the claws extend. Use a pair of nail clippers, and cut only the tip of the nail, taking care not to damage the vein, or “quick.” The nail hook is what tears upholstery, so removing it virtually eliminates the potential for damage.
Buy multiple scratching posts. Ideally, you should have two or more scratching posts in your home. Make sure that they’re sturdy and tall enough to allow your cat to stretch (3 feet or taller). Soft, fluffy carpeted posts won’t fulfill your cat’s clawing needs, so look for rougher posts.
Teach your cat where to scratch and where not to scratch. Encourage your cat to use the scratching posts by sprinkling catnip on the posts once a week. Discourage your cat from scratching furniture by using a loud, firm voice whenever he or she starts to scratch—cats don’t like loud noises! Never use physical force. Instead, you might try using a squirt gun full of lukewarm water directed at your cat’s back.

~~Declawing practices~~

Laws and policies governing onychectomy vary around the world. For example, many European countries prohibit or significantly restrict the practice, as do AustraliaNew ZealandJapan, and Turkey. It is banned in at least 22 countries. The list below gives an overview of the situation in different parts of the world.

~~Australia~~~

In Australia, declawing has never been common, and for all practical purpose, does not exist. Nationwide legislation was recently enacted that prohibits the declawing of cats except for medical need of the cat. The Australian Veterinary Association’s policy states: “Surgical alteration to the natural state of an animal is acceptable only if it is necessary for the health and welfare of the animal concerned. Performance of any surgical procedure for other than legitimate medical reasons is unacceptable.”

~~Brazil~~

In Brazil, declawing is not allowed by the Federal Council of Veterinary Medicine. [34]

~~Israel~~

In Israel, the Knesset Education Committee voted unanimously to send a bill banning the declawing of cats not for medical reasons. The bill has passed second and third readings on November 28, 2011, effectively making declawing a criminal offense with penalty of 1 year in prison or a fine of 75,000 Shekels.

~~Europe~~

In many European countries the practice is forbidden either under the terms of the European Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals or under Local Animal Abuse Laws, unless there it is for “veterinary medical reasons or for the benefit of any particular animal.” Some European countries go further, such as FinlandEstonia,[37] the NetherlandsGermany and Switzerland, where declawing cats for non-medical reasons is always illegal under their laws against cruelty to animals.

~~Austria~~

In Austria, the Federal Act on the Protection of Animals, in Section 7, states, surgical procedures “carried out for other than therapeutic or diagnostic purposes…are prohibited, in particular…declawing.”[

~~United Kingdom~~

In the United Kingdom, declawing was outlawed by the Animal Welfare Act 2006, which explicitly prohibited “interference with the sensitive tissues or bone structure of the animal, otherwise than for the purposes of its medical treatment.” Even before the 2006 Act, however, declawing was extremely uncommon, to the extent that most people had never seen a declawed cat. The procedure was considered cruel by almost all British vets, who refused to perform it except on medical grounds. The Guide to Professional Conduct of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons stated that declawing was “only acceptable where, in the opinion of the veterinary surgeon, injury to the animal is likely to occur during normal activity. It is not acceptable if carried out for the convenience of the owner … the removal of claws, particularly those which are weight bearing, to preclude damage to furnishings is not acceptable.”

~~United States~~

Declawing is legal in most U.S. jurisdictions. It is estimated that 25% of owned cats in the United States are declawed (Patronek 2001).

Just a thought …..


~~April 1, 2014~~ 

Throughout this year, since I started this blog, I have found so many new connections. They are refreshing and they will endure. I’ve been lucky to find so many new friends. I’m thankful for that.

A new world has opened while I merely sit here in my office, at the PC and let my “fingers do the walking“. 

I have connected to the UK, Australia, Scotland, Netherlands, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, India, Armenia …. every day there are more.

And everyday, I’m thankful for this wonderful web we weave. 

That’s why I love my PC.

My friends live in it!!
