    Maybe a Financial Math section?

    Hey Thanks to both of you :) I think this would be a great addition to PF, since there are no good forums out there on Financial math. I started my own financial/hedge/risk management forum, but it never took off. :cry: lol Maybe insted of a Mod, I could be an "Advisor" or "Homework...

    Maybe a Financial Math section?

    I was thinking it would be a good idea if this forum has a little sub-forum for financial math or financial engineering? We could include algorithms, and advanced models and a whole bunch of things that are related to financial math. I have the credentials to mod it, but of course don't...

    Decline in Science Jobs! Why?

    Hey I think it is because this country (USA and Canada:) ) has grown to love money and possession. You give people an option of spending over 4 to 8 years in school taking physics - maybe longer - and at the end of it, you get maybe 50k starting out, or spend the same amount of time in school...

    Destroying An Asteroid.

    Hey Yea, we are making more bombs like SRAM-T, insted of the megaton nukes that were created in the cold war. I read a journal that stated the USA still has Nuclear missiles locked onto Russia and vice versa. Does anyone think we will see a nuclear exchange in our life time?

    Chernobyl The steps of Chernobyl and effects of radiation

    Hey I agree with this statement! I blame this partly on the media, only explaning the worst of something, and not educating the general public. Take a Dirty bomb for instance. You ask any person on the street, and because of the media and movies they think a "dirty" bomb is a nuclear...

    Chernobyl The steps of Chernobyl and effects of radiation

    Hey I have another question about radiation, mainly the type that was given off in Chernobyl (Reactor) some of you gave a good example of what it does by effecting out CNS, so it's like the electrical system of a car shutting down. Can you give me an example of a healthy person, walking...

    Destroying An Asteroid.

    What is an Anti-matter bomb? :) Do we even have a rocket that can take a 1000MT nuke? Maybe use a couple of the Soviets Tsar designs. lol Only way - Mutate out minds and get smarter. Might need to wait until the next human mutation takes place :)

    Chernobyl The steps of Chernobyl and effects of radiation

    Hey Thank you very much the for details and informative replies. It is human nature for us to think of the worst possible outcome, nevermind if that outcome is possible or not, we as human must worry about something. I unfortunately am in the business of risk and analysis, so this is...

    When an object hits the ground - ?

    No, just meant that the research I am doing, the out-come can only be a movement up or down. Sorry for being so vague, but it's kind of hard to explain. Maybe if I explain the research a little more. Let's say you are charting something that is seemingly random, but with some...

    When an object hits the ground - ?

    Hi everyone. I am doing research for a technical analysis study, and I need a little help. What determines the amount of "bounce" an objects creates when it hits the ground? Now, this object is a perfect shape hitting a even floor, so the angle should have nothing to do with it...
