Albert Einstein: The Man Behind the Math

"As an American citizen, Einstein felt obligated with the start of WWII to, of all things, help create the atomic bomb…To be a lifelong pacifist and then suddenly have himself connected with the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it was a deep and horrible thing for him. After WWII, he devotes must of his energy to world peace and control of nuclear arms as well."

Albert Einstein's ideas changed the very limits of human knowledge. In this recent course, Professor Matthew Stanley examines both Einstein's legacy as a scientist, and who he was as a person.

The True Story of the Mayflower Voyage

“When we talk about the Plymouth Rock landing of 1620, sure, it’s a beginning of American history - but it’s not necessarily 'the' beginning. And that’s one of the fun things about American history, is there are so many starting points for us.”

On Thanksgiving, we remember the Pilgrims who took the Mayflower to Plymouth Rock, and their fabled “first Thanksgiving” with local Native Americans. But the story of the Mayflower is steeped in legend. What is fact, and what is myth? In her recent class, Caroline Winterer of Stanford University explores this American origin story.

FRIDAY FACT: In the early years of the United States, the Constitution left it up to the states to determine who was qualified to vote. States generally restricted voting on the basis of race, gender, and property ownership, and in some states, religion. Race was prohibited as a voting qualification with the passage of the 15th Amendment in 1870, but tax paying qualifications and poll taxes remained in some states well into the 20th century.

In Professor Austin Sarat's recent talk, "Voting in America," learn about the history of voting in the United States and the expansion of enfranchisement, as well as new questions and controversies around issues like gerrymandering, limits on the number of polling stations, voter suppression and mail in voting.

Time to rethink Confederate monuments: A Lincoln scholar changes his mind

One Day U professor Harold Holzer (Hunter College) is the author of more than 50 books on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War. This op-ed article he wrote ran today in the NY Daily News.

Three years ago, in August 2017, I appeared on the CNN morning show “New Day” to argue to Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota that — because some Confederate statues had artistic merit — they deserved to remain in place, with context added for modern viewers. I said something similar in an op-ed...

No country has as many indigenous religions as the United States of America. Although we think of our religious past as being defined by groups that came here to flee persecution elsewhere, what’s astonishing is not the transplanted religions but the ones native to our soil: Shakers, Mormons, Seventh-day Adventists, Scientologists, numerous varieties of Baptists, and many many more.

Unfortunately One Day University charged my credit card twice after I signed up for a free trial. I never once watched one of their courses. They refuse to refund. I have posted this before but I see they are taking it down.
I really like knowing that most previous presidents found value in reading and learning from those who came before.
Common theory of Relativity In this theory "common" word is related to welfare of world citizens and other living in particular and non living in general in the known and unknown universal campus, in terms of positive approach in all fields. Discoveries are subject to natural elements response on scientific stages; when agreed only the discovery is proved and accepted. To make it clear the nature responds relative to specific conditions including earth which is dependent mainly upon gravitation impact varying from object to object. Lesser is the gravitation, more is the energy output. Presently energy relativity is indicative of matter in general, but common theory of relativity covers exclusively welfare through any discovery. Welfare relativity functions for physical, mental, financial areas. This amongst others centres around excellent shelter, food, health and pollution free atmosphere. Discovery comforts are welcome but not by disturbing the nature and to act as substitute for accepted existing natural ones since centuries to avoid pollution. For this purpose, a parallel stream of discovery routes to dispose off and recycling of waste is of utmost importance, to be attained at same spirit and zeal of comfort provision. Waste caters to anything in air, land and water zones (streams, rivers, seas, oceans). In spite of pollution control efforts, some residues are bound to appear, the same can be neutralised to settle down which would benefit an additional buildup in natural resources. Coming to basics, air pollution can be tackled by pure atomic sub particles strength to be sourced out from clean environment. Similarly water and surface pollutants may be targeted for successful remedial routes by applying respective pure atomic sub particles. Atomic strength is well known and its discovery by Dr. Einstein is proven by equation E=mc2. In similar direction,relative atomic particles can be experimented to obtain abundant water and other needs. In this dimension, nature will be unaffected and it would be a great saving on existing resources for other multiple applications. By locating agreeable atomic sub particles, lands can be changed into fertile fields to generate agricultural products beyond requirements, the only care to be taken is restricting production to suit the particular original soil conditions and not against natural response. In fine common relativity theory of relativity defined without jargon of calculations and approach steps is nothing but struggling with assistance of similar atomic sub particles strength for similar responsive output, to achieve clean atmosphere. Similar input and similar responsive strength of nature is the key for common relativity theory of relativity for welfare of all, and nature has abundance power response with pure atomic particles which are in matter formations in the universal setup. The Universe is matter and vice versa. In conclusion common theory of relativity already exists in the nature for eternal happiness and welfare for living and non living in the universe and its chains. The success on this common relativity theory in the 21st century would be a great gift from the nature itself for which scientific efforts are necessary to attain goals without disturbing the nature and making it pollution free with abundance for inputs and outputs on the simple principle "similarity gets on well with similarity". This is according to the laws of the nature as a mango sapling alone will bear mangoes only . H V Navangul Age 85
