“The destruction of our film heritage, which is the focus of concern today, is only the tip of the iceberg. American law does not protect our painters, sculptors, recording artists, authors, or filmmakers from having their lifework distorted, and their reputation ruined. If something is not done now to clearly state the moral rights of artists, current and future technologies will alter, mutilate, and destroy for future generations the subtle human truths and highest human feeling that talented individuals within our society have created. A copyright is held in trust by its owner until it ultimately reverts to public domain. American works of art belong to the American public; they more »

A goal in modern science has been for many years to achieve the temperature “Absolute Zero” or zero degrees Kelvin. This is my informal thesis explaining why it cannot be attained on earth. One thing that’s always intrigued me is the fact that we are constantly in motion, even while standing still we’re affected by the Earth’s rotation. This pattern of cumulative motion extends past the earth’s orbit with the sun, which orbits the galaxy, developing into a complex web of gravity and mass. All matter on earth is affected by this, enveloped with motion. The ultimate effect of “Absolute Zero” would be to lower the temperature to a point more »
