Great Britain’s Great wall

In old days, the royal families kept their blood pure by marrying their own siblings and kin. Something of this sort has started in Britain since a couple of years ago but in a national (and in my opinion somehow racist) way.

Master Ke Jie vs. Google’s AlphaGo

I think you’ve all heard about the new program that is written by Google whose name is AlphaGo. It is a program using artificial intelligence to play the game Go. Go is a strategic board game, actually the oldest one, aging around 2500 years. After every move there’s a huge variety of possibilities for the game to go on.

AI news has always amazed me and is striking when I try to find sth to read in newspapers. If you don’t know what it exactly do, the most intriguing feature of it is that it learns. Give it a bunch of stuff to learn from, then it can perform the task on new stuff it encounters.

“Steal Like an Artist” book summary

We’ve read one of the best-sellers of 2012 for our last session of free discussion. It was “Steal Like an Artist” by Autsin Kleon. This book is an autobiography telling us about the conclusions about creative work the author has come to over the past ten years of his life. Although his main concentration was in drawing and writing what he has been enlightened of can be generalized to everything we do and we need creativity in.

Most Influential Happening in the Last Century of My Country

The topic of our last week’s gathering in Shiraz University was about what we think the most important discovery of our country is in the last century and this is what I think about it :

As we know in the ancient Iran there were an enormous number of scientists and hence a lot of big groundbreaking discoveries. But we are so far from that time and we somehow are far away from having those discoveries too. It is really shameful and sad that it is so, and the fact of what we were back in history makes it a lot worse. Today’s Iran is more of a consumer of new discoveries of the world rather than being a source to make them richer. I read some facts about Iran’s technology and science and we have a lot of university students and scientists and researcher maybe even proportionally more than other countries and despite of this fact we don’t make great discoveries. I’m an Iranian, so shame on me too.

So instead of writing about the most influential discovery of Iran over the last century I’m just going to write about the most influential milestone in the history that change everything for us and was like a big bang of universe for Iran in my opinion.

Iran Annual Physics Conference – Shiraz 2016

We hosted one of the biggest physics conferences of Iran the past week. I myself couldn’t use much for I was leading my team of cameramen and was the designer and even if I wasn’t busy the talks were so general in a high level I wouldn’t understand. So it’s not about the talks but the experience.

Your Inner Fish 2 : embryos

In this book there are many approaches to prove the evolution. Neil Shubin’s way of writing is really sweet and makes you voracious for reading more of it.
anyways, after saying a little bit about one of the methods for finding out about our not Adam ancestor I’m gonna ask “what’s up religious people? feeling well?”

Be the Best Leader

I was watching the series “Better Call Saul” the other night and something in it made me think for a while. There’s a Howard (played by Patrick Fabian) there who owns a law firm called H&M. One of his employees makes a mild mistake and he punished her harshly by demoting her. And she tried really hard to earn their trust and support back and at last she did. The amazing thing here is that Howard could be kinder and let this slide but he didn’t and demoted her and she worked harder and did a great job in finding a huge case bringing the firm a great deal of money. I think it was leadership there that caused him to force her to be better. What if he didn’t do so? She wouldn’t try harder for sure, and she wouldn’t make a big breakthrough and maybe she would even be sloppier and did make an other mistake!

Love Is Wilderness

There are many things in our lives we want so much, we want deeply, and we just can’t get. There are things so wild they can’t be tamed. I’m sure it has happened to all of us, we fight, we do everything possible, but that thing is not going to be under your control. And there exist things if you think they’re tamed and under your control you’re being an enormously gigantic fool. There are things in our lives that can’t be tamed, maybe a lot of them could be tamed but at what expense. Well, a lot of them depend on us whether we are willing to pay that price to tame them or not!

Holography

I’ve had a talk about “Holography” today. It was a project for my optics class. So I thought It would be a good idea to write a little about this matter.

Holography is a Greek word meaning “whole-drawing”. This method records the light field instead of only recording a reflection of the object. There are different types of holograms like transmission holograms, reflection holograms, rainbow holograms (which we frequently see used for security on credit cards and passports and etc.)
