The Connor Chronicles

When I wake up the next morning, I unzip my tent to find Surprise staring daggers at me. When I lose his attention, he switches his stare to look lovingly at Murphy. The other three cowboy camped last night, but with the creepy old doctor staring murder at me coupled with all the tarantulas in the desert I thought it best to just sleep in my tent. With my box cutter next to me.

Deciding to GTFO, I quickly pack up my things and leave. It’s cold, and I’m wearing all my layers hoping to just book it to town. Last night I mentioned to Murphy and Stomper that I was running low on food, having planned on doing more miles each day than our current pace. They gifted me a bag of jalapeno cheddar pretzels and an oatmeal bar, but my food bag was still too light. Time to…

Relativistic Spin Connection due to Frame Rotation

September 22, 2018

Dr. Myron Evans

Many thanks for such a fast response! I rechecked my calculation and agree. This is all most interesting, and have a very good holiday!

Relativistic Spin Connection due to Frame Rotation

It seems that there is a term -1/r missing i the relativistic spin connection. It should read:

For the numerical calculation I have to compute the equations from the definitions directly because they have to be resolved for r dot dot and phi dot dot at one side. Will see if I can do this today. Tomorrow I am going on holiday.

Relativistic Spin Connection due to Frame Rotation

This note calculates the relativistic spin connection by assuming that the frame rotation applied to the relativistic Newton equation produces the spin connection and vacuum force. The result is that simultaneous solution of Eqs. (21) and (22) gives the orbit. It will…

IRRUSSIANALITY

The latest edition of the journal Ethics and International Affairs contains a number of interesting articles on international law and the ethics of war. Several of them are worth commenting on, but I want to focus on a piece by Alex Bellamy, Director of the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect and Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies at The University of Queensland, Australia. Bellamy is the author of quite a good introductory book on just war theory. As his job title would suggest, he’s something of an R2P advocate, and in his latest article he tackles the idea that during civil wars outside parties should support the state against insurgents. This idea rests on the principle that the state will probably win, and so it’s best to help it win as quickly as possible, so reducing overall bloodshed. The fact that Bellamy considers it necessary to address…

What in the World is Charles Smith Up to Now? A Visit to Jet City Winery

September 10, 2018

The Wine Economist

jet cityCharles Smith’s Jet City Winery is located across the street from historic Boeing Field in Seattle’s gritty but hip Georgetown neighborhood.

The building started life as a Dr. Pepper bottling plant. The public spaces reflect both the structure’s mid-century roots and Charles Smith’s signature aesthetic, with lots of glass, metal, and recycled wood. The cellar is sleek, efficient, and spotlessly clean.

Sue and I met up with veteran Wine Economist research assistants Bonnie and Richard a few weeks ago at Sisters and Brothers, a hip little restaurant that makes delicious Nashville hot chicken, fried green tomatoes, and other memorable southern fare just steps from the winery. The food was great, but that wasn’t why we were there. Our mission, following up on last week’s column, was to learn what Charles Smith and his team are up to  now and where they are headed in the future.
