2019-03-20T12:41:54Z via NavierStokes To: PublicWhile the President’s budget is always a fantasy and this one is DOA, nonetheless federal agencies have to plan using this proposal until Congress actually passes a budget. Thus it is imperative the Congressional budget process proceeds effectively. https://www.washingtonpost.com/science/2019/03/19/trumps-budget-slashes-science-heres-what-would-be-lost/?noredirect=on

Looking forward to more great meetings! #HEPTakesTheHill https://twitter.com/HEPfeickert/status/1108117901742100480/photo/1

2019-03-14T22:30:54Z via NavierStokes To: PublicThere is real joy in multiplying the Sun's surface temperature, raised to the 4th power, by the Stefan-Boltzmann constant; or dividing the power output of the sun by its surface area; then seeing for yourself those numbers are nearly identical. Thank-you, nature. https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1106319892469436422/photo/1
2019-03-14T22:10:59Z via NavierStokes To: PublicI am very happy when I get to spend time talking with students about physics. Thanks to the graduate and undergraduate students who made that possible today. Your curiosity keeps me on my mental toes, constantly thinking about the universe from a different perspective. https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1106316220352159744/photo/1

2019-03-14T14:10:57Z via NavierStokes To: PublicIt's Pi Day, and I'm working on a #Jupyter/RISE upgrade of my "Pi Monte Carlo" lecture. I'll be guest lecturing on this subject next Tuesday in Prof. Scalise's "Theoretical Methods" course... with a new, shiny, interactive slide deck!

2019-03-13T20:40:59Z via NavierStokes To: PublicHmm. An application of Bayes' Theorem here is wise. The probability of being high-achieving and having these routines is not at all guaranteed to be the same as the probability of having these routines and being high-achieving. https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1105931178257862656/photo/1
2019-03-13T20:40:56Z via NavierStokes To: PublicIt was raining this morning, along with scattered thunderstorms. At 11, the skies cleared and were a rich blue. I went for a lovely run around SMU before having lunch with a grad student. And got a bunch of work done today. This was a good day.
2019-03-13T20:40:55Z via NavierStokes To: PublicFrom jenheemstra on Twitter: Grad students, you deserve a research advisor who: -cares about your health and well-being -is genuinely rooting for your success -fully supports you in whatever career path you choose Faculty, this is part of our job, and we owe it to our students to recognize that. #PhDchat

2019-03-08T17:40:49Z via NavierStokes To: PublicI cannot ever fully understand the challenges that women face; but I can celebrate how they have made everything better by increasing the boundaries of knowledge.
