Dedicated to Jerome Karle was born 18 June 1918, in New York City, NY. He began his university education at City College of New York, followed by Harvard University.
One of his first jobs was an assignment on the Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb. In 1968 Karle became the Naval Research (NRL's) chief scientist for the Laboratory for the Structure of Matter.
His search for an easier way to make fine structure of crystalline materials measurements led to developing the "direct method" of X-ray diffraction with Herbert A. Hauptman.
Dedicated to Brahmagupta
Born c. 598 CE, died c. 668 CE) was an Indian mathematician and astronomer.
Brahmagupta's Brahmasphuṭasiddhanta is the first book that provides rules for arithmetic manipulations that apply to zero and to negative numbers. The Brahmasphutasiddhanta is the earliest known text to treat zero as a number in its own right, rather than as simply a place holder digit in representing another number as was done by the Babylonians or as a symbol for a lack of quantity as was done by Ptolemy and the Romans.
Factoid: Most eras used with Hindu and Buddhist calendars, such as the Saka era or the Kali Yuga, begin with the year 0
Alessandro Volta also drew admiration from Napoleon for his invention.
Born 8 Aug 1902
Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac was an English theoretical physicist known for his work in quantum mechanics and for his theory of the spinning electron. In 1933 he shared the Nobel Prize for Physics with the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger.
Claude Monet visited his hometown of Le Havre in the Northwest of France in 1872 and proceeded to create a series of works depicting the port of Le Havre. The six painted canvases depict the port "during dawn, day, dusk, and dark and from varying viewpoints, some from the water itself and others from a hotel room looking down over the port".
Impression, Sunrise became the most famous in the series after being debuted in April 1874 in Paris at an exhibition by the group "Painters, Sculptors, Engravers etc. Inc." Among thirty participants, the exhibition was led by Monet, Degas, Pissarro, Renoir, and Sisley, and showed over two hundred works that were seen by about 4,000 people, including some rather unsympathetic critics.
The painting was stolen from the Musée Marmottan Monet in 1985 by Philippe Jamin and Youssef Khimoun but recovered in 1990. Since 1991 it has been back on display in the museum.
Wilder Graves Penfield (January 26, 1891 – April 5, 1976) was an American-Canadian neurosurgeon. He expanded brain surgery's methods and techniques, including mapping the functions of various regions of the brain such as the cortical homunculus. His scientific contributions on neural stimulation expand across a variety of topics including hallucinations, illusions, and déjà vu. Penfield devoted much of his thinking to mental processes, including contemplation of whether there was any scientific basis for the existence of the human soul.
Edgar Allan Poe
January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849 was an American writer, editor, and literary critic. Poe and his works influenced literature in the United States and around the world, as well as in specialized fields such as cosmology and cryptography.
I visited Sullivan Island in the fall of 2009 and walked on the Grains of the golden sand.
Edgar Allan Poe’s “A Dream Within a Dream,” published in 1849, explores the difference between the real and the imaginary. Within the poem, he illustrates a human life slipping away, trickling like “sand,” and implies that our existence is insubstantial, just an abstraction of the mind.
DREAM WITHIN A DREAM.
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow—
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand—
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep—while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
Paul Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956), known professionally as Paul Jackson Pollock , was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his unique style of drip painting.
Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider (March 11, 1915 – June 26, 1990), known simply as J. C. R. was an American psychologist and computer scientist who is considered one of the most important figures in computer science and general computing history.
He is particularly remembered for being one of the first to foresee modern-style interactive computing and its application to all manner of activities; and also as an Internet pioneer with an early vision of a worldwide computer network long before it was built. He did much to actually initiate this by funding research which led to much of it, including today's canonical graphical user interface, and the ARPANET, the direct predecessor to the Internet.
Dedicated to Albert Einstein, was born on March 14, 1879.
Work was inspired by Pi (π). Pi is a mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, commonly approximated as 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter "π" since the mid-18th century, though it is also sometimes spelled out as "pi".
Hot Pi 2 is a second work recognizing Pi. Pi 2s composition has the two circle merging together in a more dominate composition.
Synchronicity is a concept, first introduced by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, which holds that events are "meaningful coincidences" if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related. During his career, Jung furnished several slightly different definitions of it.Jung variously defined synchronicity as an "acausal connecting (togetherness) principle," "meaningful coincidence", and "acausal parallelism." He introduced the concept as early as the 1920s but gave a full statement of it only in 1951 in an Eranos lecture.
Happy birthday: Sigmund Freud, 6 May 1856
Ernest Orlando Lawrence (August 8, 1901 – August 27, 1958) was a pioneering American nuclear scientist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1939 for his invention of the cyclotron. He is known for his work on uranium-isotope separation for the Manhattan Project, as well as for founding the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Chemical element number 103 was named lawrencium in his honor after its discovery at Berkeley in 1961.
Sir Joseph John Thomson, born -18 December 1856 – 30 August 1940) was an English physicist and Nobel laureate in physics, credited with the discovery and identification of the electron; and with the discovery of the first subatomic particle.
Thomson was known for his work as a mathematician, where he was recognized as an exceptional talent.
He was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1906.

The origins of Wall Street are tied to Alexander Hamilton's plans for the financing of the new nation and the funding of its debt.
Creating the Bank of New York in 1784 and the First National Bank in 1790, he restored national credit from a bankrupt country.
Ouyang was born in 1935 in Ji'an, Jiangxi. He obtained a degree in geology at the Beijing College of Geology and a doctorate in mineral deposits and geochemistry at the Beijing Institute of Geology. Thereafter, Ouyang spent many years conducting studies in deep mines. He later studied nuclear physics and worked in a particle accelerator laboratory. He later put forward a hypothesis of the formation of iron meteorites, an evolutionary model of the formation of the meteorites which fell at Jilin in 1976, and a theory of multi-stage cosmic ray radiation history.
Abstract Expressionist PaulTim, says his first memory of creating art was when he was 4 years old. I would create art worlds on the condensation of a window. Today his "window" is a digital screen using techniques many Hollywood's special effects companies such as; Industrial Light & Magic, and Pixar use to create his fine art images. Paul first started designing broadcast animations rendered on VAX 780 1 mip mini supercomputers during the mid-1980's for Cranston Csuri Productions. Co-Founder of Cranston Csuri, Charles Csuri is recognized as the Father of Digital Art and Computer Animation by Smithsonian and MoMa. While at Cranston Csuri, Paul designed motion graphics for NBC, ABC, WCBS, MTV, and designed the first motion graphics of the Paul Rand designed IBM logo through IBM Agency, Lord Geller Federico, Einstein.
During Paul's time in art school he received his nickname " PaulTim " a shortening of his full name Paul Timothy Conley. Paul was an instructor of computer art & animation and design of cinematography at CCAD from 1992 to 2008. He became a Computer Graphics Pioneer member of SIGGRAPH in 2012. Paul has served as a judge for the Academy for Interactive and Visual Arts for the past ten years.
PaulTim's Art is available for exhibition and acquisition.
