Writing about Race: The Writer's Dilemma

How does one write realistically about race? To a professional writer, the answer to that question should be obvious.  But that answer does not take into account the power of the new fascism.  This month we explore the touchy subject of writing about race, and offer some suggestions for walking through the minefield without getting your foot blown off.

The Frontiers of Physics, Part II: The Constituents of Matter

 

We all know what matter is, don't we?  Or do we.  Our understanding of the world around us has come a long way since the Greek's Air-Earth-Fire-Water model.  We now know that common matter is composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons and that there are 92 natural elements ranging from hydrogen on one end of the scale and uranium on the other.  That, at least, is the common perception.  In many ways, the average person's understanding of The Stuff of Which We Are Made is as primitive as those long-dead Greek philosophers.  Come with us to explore a subject that is far more complex than most of us learned in school.
