I don't know if it extends life, but it definitely extends a marriage. ;-)
I thrive on confrontation, on third wife now, any connection?

Heh, heh!

Welcome. Brain/mind threads are scattered through both the philosophy and science forums here. Hope you find time to browse.

Hello Everyone,
I'm a newbie here, I've just joined this forum and find this discussion community is really full of knowledge and have a lot of stuff for me that I can learn. For now I'd just introduce myself, My name is Cameron Dallas, I'm 22 and from Florida, USA.
I'm so thankful of the administrator of this forum who has allowed me to be a part of this board.

Hello all
I have just joined this forum as I have some questions that I would love to have answered by someone who knows more than me.
I am a middle aged woman with a wandering mind - sometimes it wanders so far it comes back with souvenirs!
My main problem is lack of self-discipline and focus. I find everything in this Universe so interesting.
My latest point of interest is the Higgs field and Higgs bosun particle. If there is a physicist out there who can tolerate the fact that I'm not a physicist and can't speak Maths I would love to chat about them.
Jeannie

Hello Jeanie and welcome to the forums. There are several physics-knowledgeable people around, and a particle physicist who is actually conducting some of this research who pops in every now and then to answer questions. You can check some of the discussions already going on in the... physics forum I suppose. Hope you find what you're looking for :]

Hi,

I recently supplied the following to a member with similar questions. Click the links to view.

He then gave us update 1, update 2 and update 3.

Much enjoyed. I hope they continue!

Joining any community is like a trend in these days sometimes people joined for getting some entertainment but sometime they want to get useful information and knowledge from other community members. I am new in thins forum and want to find out good friends i found this community is highly interesting.

I would like to formally introduce myself to you all of on the forums. I have come in search of a place where I can read others theories, comment on them, and post my own. My particular interests are those in the physics field as well as some philosophy and theoretical conversations. I hope I've finally found a decent forum!

I want to test my Holmesian powers of deduction by guessing that newbie member, "Ilikeponies" is a teenage female.

If I am wrong, I will have to turn in my deerstalker cap and Meerschaum.

Hello everyone! I just joined this community. I'm currently doing my PhD in quantum thermodynamics and quantum information. I will be as glad to answer questions as to have mine answered! hehehe
I'm interest in science in general plus math and logic. So I think this would be a wonderful place for discussions.

Good discussions for everyone!

Hi Chapolin! quantum thermodynamics seems like a very interesting field (also Q. I., but just to focus on one). Could you tell me some leading people whose research you admire or find especially up-to-date, in that field?
I will just glance at the papers to get a taste of what you see as especially interesting.

I'm not at all expert in such areas but I'd like to get a little superficial familiarity.

It comes to mind that a famous old one in Q.I. was Asher Peres (1934-2005, Technion ...)
and a very entertaining young person, who also has a blog, is Scott Aaronson (MIT...)

I'm personally not so interested in quantum COMPUTING possibilities and more interested in the quantum thermodynamics in NATURE, like black hole entropy and quantum paradoxes, and Unruh temperature, and entropy bounds for other horizons besides black hole, and arrow of time, and cosmology thermodynamics. Not that I know all that much about it, but I find that stuff appeals more to me personally than quantum computers.

There are many influential researches. You may find them in this workshop http://www.wqit-quantum.if.ufg.br/pages/69140-speakers. I don't know your background so I will post some reviews if you get interested. Unfortunately there are not many of the quantum regime yet since it is a really emergent field. There are some of the classical regime, though (which was also a breakthrough in the past decade). I will post in an increasing order of technicality.

A really interesting list! Thanks for the links, especially for the first one: the article in Physics Today by Bustamante and others.
I responded yesterday (Sunday) morning but since my reactions were too specific to put in this Welcome thread and might be distracting, I posted my reply here:
viewtopic.php?p=270025#p270025
in the "quantum phenomena" thread where you had already joined the discussion.
Molecular motors and cellular biophysical motors must be a fascinating field of research! As I recall Biowizard has posted some related comment and, if I remember correctly, some computer animation video related to molecular mechanics in the cell. I live in Berkeley--I must keep an eye out for public lectures on this topic.

I have registered here few days ago, but I didn't participate here to share anything or collect information from all of your discerning people, I hope it will be a right place to discuss & grow knowledge in science as well share my experience & some unique science research.

Welcome to the forums, then, sciencem!

But, please, when you start a new topic, try and make it so that there is something to discuss in it (I mean, a question, a hypothesis, a doubt...)

Part of the rapid response includes banning people who pepper the boards with bland, pointless posts like "that is very interesting," then sneak in spam for some bogus cure for cancer.

Hello! My name is Sara, and I just joined this forum.

I enjoy running, weightlifting, and studying physiology. My favorite organ is the heart, my favorite organelle is the mitochondrion, and my favorite topic of study is cardiovascular responses to heat stress.
