A toilet has three main parts: a bowl, a tank, and a siphon.Four principles of physics suffice to explain how it works: potential energy, pressure, the siphon effect and buoyancy.The bowl supports the seat and receives the "deposit" from the user.The tank...

One of my earliest recollections of the name of Albert Einstein comes from what might seem the unlikeliest of sources. Comic, Sid Caesar, used to do an impression of a "mad scientist" on the classic "Show of Shows" television series of so long ago, which...
Is the Standard Model the best Model of our Physical World
By: Dean L. Sinclair
No. There have to be better possible models.The Standard Model, developed on the basis of set theory in the 1970's is flawed. The premise is that the model correlates the known basic particles into sets and correlates "Three of the basic four forces of...
Antimatter: the basics
By: Rex Trulove
Antimatter is not just in the realm of science fiction and Star Trek. It exists, and has been measured. But what is antimatter?Antimatter is simply a substance that has some opposite qualities of regular matter. To explain this more fully, atoms make up everything...

CryptographyPrimarily, cryptography describes the art and science of sending hidden messages. As described by mathematician Simon Singh, in his book The Code Book, the field of encryption consists of a never-ending war between cryptographers, who hide information, and also cryptanalysts, who seek to read that...

This article is written to ask a simple question, and maybe offer an even simpler answer.WE all know that water falls, or at least runs downhill. We all know how to use a simple gyroscopic toy and that it will do some pretty weird...

A STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF GRAVITATIONAL PHENOMENA.For three hundred years the theory of gravity has been dominated by the names of Einstein, Newton and Le Sage. Whereas Einstein and Newton restricted themselves to developing mathematical descriptions of the movement of free bodies moving in a...
Is the Standard Model the best Model of our Physical World
By: Keith Foote
The standard model is essentially a particle theory model, with severe reductionist limitations. (Consider that in over one hundred of use, we have no technologies based on the photon model.) It works well for mathematicians making limited predictions, but fails to provide a functional...

Planck's Constant , which may be considered as either a unit of "action" or of angular momentum, may be far more significant than anyone has realized. Scientists have long ignored the fact that Planck's constant, "h," which relates energy to the frequency of electromagnetic radiation...

Allow me to apologize in advance for my relative lack of scientific knowledge. Though I'm not the most knowledgeable scientist around, I do have some thoughts on the subject of time. I would submit, that on one level, time does exist, but in the larger...
