Off to the second day of boredom. Nothing is more boring than accounting seminars. They did provide some new information and that part is good. I did see some old friends and that is good. Some of the speakers were actually friends of mine and that can be good or bad. Nice to see them but it is an ugly reminder of how long I've been doing tax work.
The seminar is at a nice hotel. A clean hotel. Clean is always nice so her is some dirt to watch out for:
Sometimes when I am at accounting seminars and the boredom is just to much I just get up and start dancing:
This particular place where the seminar is has great food. Lunch is included in the price of the seminar. It is buffet style and is very good. I really liked the corn. I do kind of wonder where the got it:
Harriet Martineau authored yesterday's quote. "Mathematics began to seem too much like puzzle solving. Physics is puzzle solving, too, but of puzzles created by nature, not by the mind of man", was authored by A mathematician and physicist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1963 for her work on the nuclear shell structure. She lived from 1906 to 1972. When the United States went to war in 1941, she received a paid teaching appointment -- only part-time, at Sarah Lawrence College. She also began working part-time at Columbia University's Substitute Alloy Metals project -- a highly secret project working on separating uranium-235 to fuel nuclear fission weapons. She went several times to the top-secret Los Alamos Laboratory in New Mexico, where she worked with Edward Teller, Niels Bohr and Enrico Fermi. After the war, Joseph she was offered a professorship at the University of Chicago, where other major nuclear physicists were also working. Once again, with nepotism rules she could work as a voluntary (unpaid) assistant professor -- which she did, with Enrico Fermi, Edward Teller, and Harold Urey, also by that time on the faculty at the U. of C. Have you thought about the ELEMENTARY THEORY OF NUCLEAR SHELL STRUCTURE? Think about it now and you can tell me who authored today's quote.
