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

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

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.

Shaw Organic: Is This the Next Miracle from Bronco Wine & Trader Joe’s?

Shaw Organic: Is This the Next Miracle from Bronco Wine & Trader Joe’s?

shaw1“It’s very popular — one of the varietals is nearly sold out already.” That was my friend Kelly’s response to a question about a new wine at her Trader Joe’s store: Shaw Organic. It is the latest wine from the people who brought you Charles Shaw (a.k.a. Two Buck Chuck) and I think it might say something about where the wine market could be going in the U.S.

Two Billion Buck Chuck

I wrote about the “miracle of Two Buck Chuck” in my 2011 book Wine Wars. The miracle, I said, wasn’t that the Bronco Wine Co.  could make a wine that Trader Joe’s could sell for just $1.99 (the price has gone up over the years, but it is still inexpensive). Making value wine is all about controlling cost and there are many ways of doing that. In Europe some hypermarkets have sold what I call One Buck Chuck: …

Legacy of Roger Penrose and Stephen Hawking

August 28, 2018

Dr. Myron Evans

These were the sixties wizz kids in physics and clashed immediately with Fred Hoyle in a supermassive inelastic collision. As a result Hoyle left Cambridge in a towering rage and moved to Cardiff. Hoyle thought that Big Bang is complete nonsense, so did Einstein and so do all the members of the ECE School, hundreds of thousands of them, if not millions. Things are looking pretty dippy for the standard model now, it is facing a major challenge from ECE and ECE2 and is unable to reply rationally to that most rational of subjects, geometry. ECE is Cartan geometry combined with simple hypotheses to turn geometry into physics. Peter Higgs’ boson and electroweak theory were shredded in UFT225 by Horst and myself, and was shredded by the work of Vigier and myself on B(3) and boson mass a long time ago. ECE is a perfect theory, based on a perfect…

Note on the Lagrangian Calculation by Horst

August 28, 2018

Dr. Myron Evans

Agreed with this. This classical limit is entirely self consistent and gives a great deal of entirely original physics, even without going to the ECE2 covariant level at which the spin connection enters the theory. The precession of the S2 star is easily explained by choosing omega sub 1, and the precession and shrinking of the Hulse Taylor binary pulsar can be explained on this classical level using the time dependent omega sub 1. The rigorous theory is of course the ECE2 generally covariant unified field theory. There is no need to assume gravitational radiation to explain the Hulse Taylor binary pulsar. By Ockham’s Razor ECE2 is now preferred to EGR in many different ways, and EGR has collapsed completely. The S2 star shows that EGR can no longer be claimed to be a precise theory. In fact it is riddled with errors.
