Meet a Math Teacher Who Is Also a Male Model

A PhD in engineering that loves to train his body. He teaches math and in math, theories are disapproved with counterexamples. So I think it’s safe to say that he is the counterexample to the myth that an exercised body means less intelligence!

The True Story of The Imitation Game

I hadn’t the opportunity to see this film yet. But it seems quite interesting. When it arrives to the cinema I will see it… Meanwhile, here is an article unfolding the truth behind the film. 🙂

A Glimpse of the sun’s power II: How the rainbows are formed?

Added content regarding the origins of the acronym Roy G. Biv! 🙂

Gleams of Knowledge

You found out how the auroras are formed. Now you will learn about rainbows.

Rainbows are not formed in the practical meaning of existence, i.e. they are not real. They belong to what we usually call optical illusions. Rainbows are caused by the reflection and refraction of light in water droplets. After this the light scatters into different colors because different colours have different wavelengths. This means that they will leave the water droplet at different angles hence making a “colour palette” (ROG. BIV). [1]

What is even more interesting is that the rainbows are full circles… Want to know more? Watch this two videos of SciShow!

As always I hope you learnt something new! 🙂 [2]

Minutephysics has just made a wonderful video explaining the origins of the acronym ROG. BIV. Watch it!

In Photos: 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai

The education activist who became the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner after being shot in the head by Taliban! This young woman fights for human rights and equal opportunities. Her main focus is education and women’s equality . By the way… I didn’t know her (and for that I’m utterly embarrassed) from this day on I’m her fan and I will support her to provide a world full of justice!

Wednesday marked the second-ever TEDxCERN, the event organized by the folks at CERN, the famed particle physics research center in Geneva, Switzerland, responsible for bringing us the World Wide Web, the Large Hadron Collider, and confirmation of the existence of the Higgs boson. You know, just a few minor things.

TEDxCERN brought together a mix of experts from across the sciences and the world, people all working to answer the question: “What are the big ideas in science that will help us address tomorrow’s major global problems?” Particle physicist (and three-time TED speaker) Brian Cox served as quippy host, while more than a thousand attendees watched live in CERN’s Globe of Science and Innovation.

If you weren’t one of the lucky thousand, or were too swamped with work to catch the live webcast, don’t despair. We watched for you. And created a list of things we…
