Eric Rudolph pled guilty to the 1996 Olympic blast in Atlanta—he appeared in two courts today… Atlanta & Birmingham…he confessed to planting the nail bombs… which killed two people and wounded more than 150 others. Under a plea bargain to admitting guilty , prosecutors agreed to drop the death penalty, and will be sentenced to multiple terms of life in prison without parole. Rudolph said that the U.S. Government tolerance towards abortion was the driving force behind three of the four bombings. He was on the run for five years before he was caught in 2003. He said the 4th attack on July 27 was to “confound, anger, and Embarrassment the U.S. Government in the eyes of the world for its abominable sanctioning of abortion on demand”, saying Bush was a coward for failing to put an end to the practice.

They will send smoke up twice a day—once at noon and once at seven pm. Black smoke signaling no decision, white smoke—a new pope has been elected. The new pope is chosen by a 2/3 majority, but if no one has been elected after 33 ballots the cardinals can decide to move to an absolute majority or a runoff between the two top contenders.

Democrats are counting on Gov. Schwaarzenaager poll ratings going down—as the next election comes up.. Phil Angelides State treasurer is intending on running for governor.

Thailand is using pilots and planes and air warfare to make it rain—to combat the drought conditions…they spray sodium chloride into the clouds , that’s stage one. They have to create more clouds by forming a skeletal structure for water vapor to cling on to. A few hours later pilots use a smaller aircraft to make a bumpy run through the lower layers of the clouds and spray out dry ice to fatten the clouds with greater humidity. In the final run, chemicals are sprayed to lower the clouds temperature which is supposed to trigger rain. The drought has damaged 5.2 million acres of farmland and has caused 190 million in economic loss. They have a rainmaking center set up at Hua Hin where the kings palace is located, 140 miles south of Bangkok,

Einstein was married twice…and seemed indifferent toward his children while obsessed with physics. In March 1905 Einstein said conventional physics described light as a wave and could not explain how light could knock electrons off>...Einstein showed that light is made of tiny packets of energy or quanta, that can behave like individual particles too. This duality is the basis of quantum theory, a pillar of modern physics. It was so paradoxical that even Einstein did not completely buy into it. In May he showed how particles like pollen appeared to be independently moving in water are being jostled by atoms and water that are moving chaotically.Einsteins calculations confirmed the atoms existence and by extension of the makeup of of chemical elements.

In June Einsteins paper on special relativity separates him from the mainstream physics crowd. He considered gravity to be absolute mass. Mass attracts mass. Its what makes gas and dust form stars and debris form planets but Einstein sought to explain anomalies in is… Scientists had concluded that light was just one of many kinds of electro magnetic waves moving through an unseen medium they call ether . The speed of light is always the same…Einstein call the teenage dream of racing a light beam. According to the Physics of his day he moved as fast as the light and the beam would be stationery in space. Einstein. Said the speed of light is constant at 186, 282 miles per second, but it will appear different according to how long you’ve been there and how fast you’re traveling. For example clocks on orbiting satellites run a bit slower because the satellites are orbiting at 1700 miles per hour. They have programs that help them align with clocks on earth. Suppose you are to witness a star exploding into a super nova—the explosion occurred 1000s of years ago but it has taken that long to reach you here.

In November Einstein published an extension of special relativity regarding the conversion of mass into energy. The mass of a body is the measure of its energy content. In 1907 he abbreviated it to what would become the most famous equation in science—E equals MC Squared. C2---or MC2 is such a huge number that even small amounts of mass pack a ton of power. Each of these papers was a landmark in physics says said University of Maryland physicist James Gates. And yet all of his work in 1905 was a prelude to his greatest composition—the theory of general relativity. Special relativity was incomplete because it did not deal with gravity. To Newton gravity was a constant absolute force—drop an apple and it hits the ground. The planet traces a curved orbit because the sun’s gravity tugs at the planet. In Einstein’s relative world matter warps the time and space around it so the sun’s mass dents and distorts the space time fabric curving the planet’s tragectory a reason that even particles of light, a very tiny mass, should be effective in this way. In 1919 astronomers watching a solar eclipse observed the light from a distant star being deflected by the darkening sun’s mass, a few 100’s of a millimeter. General relativity laid the foundation for all kinds of discoveries such as the “big bang” Expansion of the universe and black holes. Did big bang really happen? Einstein described relativity this way—put your hand on a hot stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty gal for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity. Einstein had an affair with his German cousin Elsa Lowenthal. She nursed him back to health in 1917 . He married two years later … second major relationship—she died in 1936 when they were at Princeton. He died in April 1955. He had two children from the first relationship in Austria, but seemed to be an unhappy relationship, although he gave the first gal the $36,000 he reciegved for the Nobel Peace prize.

Bush said the retirement age may need to be raised as one answer to social security problems Phone technology will allow users to have something connected straight to their vocal chords—around their neck.. another one called “jawbone”… the purpose is to eliminate background noise but the voice will be computer generated.. Researchers note that TERC cannot pick up fricatives i.e. the “s” sound in English for example. Nor can it pick up “explosives”—the “p” sound in pit for example. IT’s called capacitance… as a person speaks the tiny movement of the vocal cords changes the collars capacitance.. two electro magnetic resonance collars …called the Advance Speech Encoding Project.

William Jensen Cottrell former Cal Tech student was sentenced to 8 years in prison for burning SUV’s & Hummers at a car dealership in southern California. The kid begged for lenience saying “There’s no way I’d ever be involved in something like this.” He cried, “I’ll never even j-walk again.” He’s only 24 years old and was a doctoral candidate in the physics dept at the Cal Tech. Two other former Cal Tech students were also apparently involved and fled the country. They traced Correl by the e-mails he sent to the L.A. Times using an alias.
