Hear me roar

June 3, 2015 - 12:53pm
I celebrated my birthday a couple of days ago. By anyone's standards, it really was a lovely day - I was given presents, cards and delicious treats. I was taken to lunch and spent the evening drinking wine and watching some hilariously trashy television with a group of wonderful friends. Family members called and my Facebook page was filled with good wishes. My daughter sent me a beautiful video of her singing a song that would make anyone tear up. And yet, there was still something missing - a birthday wish from my mom. It was something I could always count on. My mom was the one other person there for that very first birthday of mine so many years ago and she never missed one. I had no idea when I celebrated my birthday six years ago that a mere 12 days later I would be saying goodbye to her. She was there for my first breath and I was with her for her last. I miss her all the time, but my birthday is one of the worst days - and her birthday, which was just four days before mine. Of course Mother's Day is just a few weeks before that. It can be a difficult time of year. She was an amazing woman. She was one of the kindest people I've ever met. She never forgot a birthday, anniversary or other important occasion for all her friends and extended family. She was smart, funny and a wonderful cook. She loved my dad, her children, her grandchildren and all of her family fiercely.

Extinguishing the Black Hole Firewall Paradox

June 2, 2015 - 2:30pm
In the quest for knowledge about how our universe works, physicists have been trying to understand black holes for decades. In 2014, MSU professor Chris Adami published a paper that arguably solved the paradox of classical information and black holes. He discovered that if you throw classical information at a black hole, the information is copied and contained in the stimulated emission of radiation, but not in the Hawking radiation, named after physicist Stephen Hawking. This means information is preserved and the laws of physics remain intact.
