    Question about the Scientific process

    Sorry, I used the word simulation incorrectly; I actually meant experiment. I wanted to explain the scientific process to a "just a theory" friend. But I realized I need to know more detail about the process, before I try to pass my bits and pieces of knowledge. Since there is no clear-cut...

    Question about the Scientific process

    If Darwin had to propose his ideas (for the very first time) today in a scientific journal, he will have to do it as a hypothesis? And later who accepts or approves it as a theory? Also why Katharine Milton's ideas are a hypothesis, not a theory?

    Question about the Scientific process

    I meant, even without a lab simulation, it still qualified for a scientific theory. I'm familiar with the layman mistake of calling a scientific theory as 'just a theory'.

    Ideally, I would like to see an article on the PF insights about the scientific process about how we come up with laws, theories, and hypothesis. May be I missed, if so, please point me to the right page. My specific questions are as follows: Is there a lab experimental evidence a must to...

    Twitter Worker Making $160K Struggling to Survive?

    I used https://www.taxact.com/tools/tax-bracket-calculator.asp and https://smartasset.com/taxes/california-tax-calculator#GraGGTOArq The federal tax comes to 33,000 and state tax comes to 7200 (both the numbers using a taxable income of 142K and after rounding). So tax is 33,000 + 7,200 =...

    Richard Feynman a womanizer?

    Personal life could be interesting to some people. That's why there are biographies about famous people, and people buy them. No one is saying we need to mix the scientist's accomplishments with his personal life. This thread is not about his scientific accomplishments.

    Richard Feynman a womanizer?

    Charlie Munger is 93 years and he is not as articulate as he used to be. He is considered as a legend in the investment world and for his personal wisdom. Ironically, his sophistication in the psychological approach to investment and worldly wisdom is more widely accepted than anyone else in the...

    Richard Feynman a womanizer?

    Thanks for the article. But this article does not talk about him targeting wives of male graduate students, which is the most offensive of all.

    Richard Feynman a womanizer?

    Was listening to a Charlie Munger interview: At time 1:55, Charlie mentions Feynman used to sleep with wives of his undergraduate students. I never knew about this personal side of him.

    Yesterday, I attended the following presentation by Prof. Andrea Ghez. https://www.meetup.com/physicists/events/236886090/?gj=co2&rv=co2 In the Q&A session towards the end, there was a question she fumbled to give a proper answer. She mentioned that as long as the mass is compressed into...

    Poll of Polls

    Care to elaborate a bit more? Are you implying the margin of error should get multiplied and cnn is incorrectly and ignorantly stating that there is no margin of error. The 3 outcome I can think of are 1. margin of error gets multiplied on each inclusion of individual polls. 2. margin of error...

    Poll of Polls

    If each individual poll has a margin of error, when you combine all the polls, why do they say poll of polls has no margin of error? Shouldn't the margin of error get multiplied when you combine many polls?

    Should I Vote?

    Does anyone see a possibility of Sanders joining Green Party after the DNC and becoming their presidential nominee? His ideology looks more aligned with the Green party. He is 74 and does not have to care any backlash if it creates. The vote base of Sanders is more based on his ideology and...

    Should I Vote?

    If I'm not impressed with both the potential major candidates for the US presidential election, should I vote for the lesser of the two evils, or stay away from voting. What would you do? Would like to get people's opinion on the pros and cons. I wish there was a section on the ballot paper to...
