A Word From the Gallery It's not every day that I post things of a religious context. Honestly, religion and comedy rarely have reason to mix. There aren't too many things within religion or throughout religious history that can make you stand up and say, "Damn that's funny!" Inquisition, not funny. Holocaust, not funny. Jesus on the cross, not funny. Catholic priests abusing young boys, not funny. Catholic priests advertising themselves in naked pictures on the Internet - ok, that's funny. But, sometimes perspective is important. Today, we talk about Muslims and Jews. Now, I'm no expert (ok - I am an expert, but its funnier the other way) but it seems to me that there is a great number of Muslim nations who oppress their people and want the Jews dead. It seems to me, there are a lot of Jews who want to be left alone and go back to their job of being entertainement lawyers and wondering when their daughter is going to find a nice Jewish boy and settle down. And would some grandchildren be too much to ask for while I can still carry them, you know my back goes out and my chronic gout and you don't mind getting me a cup of Sanka do you - not that I want to be a bother.

    albert abraham michelson 18521931. albert A. michelson's background, which seemsodd to modern eyes As a teacher michelson was aloof and forbidding, but lucid.
    M ICHELSON In the nineteenth century

    Born in Strelno, Prussia (later Strzelno, Poland), son of a Jewish merchant, Michelson was brought to America as a small child. He grew up in the rough, booming mining towns of Murphy's Camp, California and Virginia City, Nevada. In 1869 he went to Annapolis as an appointee of President U. S. Grant. After graduation he stayed on at the Naval Academy as a science instructor.
    A single event in November 1877 stamped a pattern on his life. While preparing a lecture demonstration of Foucault's method for determining the velocity of light, Michelson realized that if he collimated the beam he could get a much longer optical path-length and thus a great increase in sensitivity. In the next two years he did the experiment, aided by his enthusiasm and mechanical talent, and also by a grant from his father-in-law, amounting to $2000 (the equivalent of ten times as much today). Encouraged by success and by the advice of the prominent astronomer Simon Newcomb, Michelson resolved on a career in physics. He went to Europe for two years of study.

    Albert Abraham Michelson (1852 - 1926)
    deutscher Physiker
    Albert Abraham Michelson wurde am 19. Dezember 1852 in Strelno (ehemals Deutschland jetzt Polen) geboren. Seine Eltern emigrierten, als ihr Sohn 4 Jahre alt war an die Westküste Nordamerikas. Nach dem Besuch der Grundschule in Virginia City wurde Michelson für den Rest seiner Schulzeit nach San Franzisko zu Verwandten geschickt. Er erhielt ein Stipendium an der US Navel Academy in Annapolis. Nach Abschluss seines Studiums fuhr Michelson zunächst ein Jahr auf See bevor er als Ausbilder für physikalische Wissenschaften an der Navel Academy angestellt wurde. Durch die Schriften von Leon Foucault und Armand Fizeau angeregt befasste er sich mit der Bestimmung der Lichtgeschwindigkeit und verbesserte das Ergebnis auf 299910 +/- 50 km /s. Für die Jahre 1880 -1882 erhielt Michelson von der Navel Academy die Erlaubnis für weiterführende Studien in Europa. So arbeitete er bei Helmholtz in Berlin, wo er das nach ihm benannte Michelson-Interferometer entwickelte. Varianten dieses Instrumentes wurden an verschiedenen Orten entwickelt. Zu den bekanntesten gehört das

    The University of Chicago’s first nobel Laureate was albert A. michelson,who was recognized in 1907 for his measurements of the speed of light.
    Nobel Prize Centennial 1901-2001 University of Chicago News: Resources
    University of Chicago Nobel Laureates Seventy-four Nobel Laureates have been faculty members, students or researchers at the University of Chicago at some point in their careers. Eleven have won the Nobel Prize in the last decade alone. Of the 74 Laureates, 25 have won in Physics , 22 in Economic Sciences , 14 in Chemistry , 11 in Physiology or Medicine and two in Literature Michelson was the first American to win the Nobel Prize in any of the sciences. Six Laureates are currently members of the faculty: James Heckman (Economic Sciences, 2000), Robert Lucas (Economic Sciences, 1995), Robert Fogel (Economic Sciences, 1993), Gary Becker (Economic Sciences, 1992), Ronald Coase (Economic Sciences, 1991) and James Cronin (Physics, 1980). James Heckman , a Professor in Economics and Public Policy, studies methodologies used to measure the impact of social programs, such as minimum-wage legislation and anti-discrimination law. He shared the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for work on analyzing selective samples. Robert Lucas Robert Fogel , a Professor in the Graduate School of Business, shared the award for applying economics and statistics to the study of history. In his work on slavery in the United States, Fogel has argued that the market would not have ended slavery, as it remained a profitable and efficient system for slave owners.

May 9, 1931, Pasadena, Calif., U.S.), German-born American physicist who established the speed of light as a fundamental constant and pursued other spectroscopic and metrological investigations. He received the 1907 Nobel Prize for Physics Michelson came to the United States with his parents when he was two years old. From New York City, the family made its way to Virginia City, Nev., and San Francisco, where the elder Michelson prospered as a merchant. At 17, Michelson entered the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md., where he did well in science but was rather below average in seamanship. He graduated in 1873, then served as science instructor at the academy from 1875 until 1879. In 1878 Michelson began work on what was to be the passion of his life, the accurate measurement of the speed of light. He was able to obtain useful values with homemade apparatuses. Feeling the need to study optics before he could be qualified to make real progress, he traveled to Europe in 1880 and spent two years in Berlin, Heidelberg, and Paris, resigning from the U.S. Navy in 1881. Upon his return to the United States, he determined the velocity of light to be 299,853 kilometres (186,329 miles) per second, a value that remained the best for a generation, until Michelson bettered it.

    Albert Michelson: The pioneer of Interferometry Photo courtesy of "Polish-Origin Nobel Prize Laureates" Albert Abraham Michelson was born on December 19, 1852 in Strelno, Prussia (today Strzelno, Poland). He came to the United States with his parents when he was two years old. From New York, the family made its way to Virginia City, Nevada and San Francisco. At 17, Michelson entered the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md and graduated in 1873. Early on Michelson was fascinated with the sciences and the problem of measuring the speed of light in particular. After two years of studies in Europe he resigned from the navy in 1881 and set out to determine the speed of light with an unprecedented accuracy using his interferometer. His value remained the best for a generation and when it was improved, Michelson was the one who did it. In 1883 he accepted a position as professor of physics at the Case School of Applied Science in Cleveland and concentrated on improving his interferometer. By 1887 with the help of his colleague Edward Williams Morley he conducted what was to be known as the Michelson-Morley experiment. Their experiment showed that there was no significant motion of the Earth relative to the ether , the hypothetical medium in which light waves were supposed to travel. This result later became the foundation of Einstein's Theory of Relativity.
