I want anyone in my life who is a member of the LGBTQ+ community to know that while I am a very flawed, feeling person, I am still working on learning and growing, just like the rest of us moving along in this crazy world. I still slip up when trying to remember the right pronouns to use for those who identify with they/them pronouns now. If someone undergoes a name change because they now identify as transgender or non binary, I do my best to not use their “dead” name, but again, I’m not perfect..
The uses of Taro in JamaicaI grew up eating this wonderful root vegetable and I thought everyone knew what it was until I mentioned it in a recipe and was asked about it. Here in Jamaica we use taro in many ways. Both the root and leaves can be eaten but here in Jamaica we use the root more so than the leaves..
Gustave Dore (1832 1888)We really can’t make a list of famous French illustrators without Gustave Dore, sort of child prodigy without formal training but with an incredible talent which was already visible in his school years. He started career as a caricaturist and became an illustrator with Gargantua and Pantagruel by Rabelais. His speed of creating was legendary and in combination of skill (engraving was actually the field where Dore most excelled) he soon established a position of the illustrator in top demand..
“No one understands what it is like to live with cancer better than someone else who has cancer,” says Kelly Lange, who was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer 15 years ago. Soon after, she started attending METAvivor support groups around her hometown of Annapolis, MD. Now she volunteers for the nonprofit.
9MbAbstractIn this thesis I explore the connection between geometry and quantum entanglement, in the context of holographic duality, where entanglement entropies in a quantum field theory are associated with the areas of surfaces in a dual gravitational theory. The first chapter looks at a phase transition in such systems in finite size and at finite temperature, associated with the properties of minimal surfaces in a static black hole background. This is followed by the related problem of extremal surfaces in a spacetime describing the dynamical process of black hole formation, with a view towards understanding the connections between bulk locality and various field theory observables including entanglement entropy.
Since noticing that Voltage camper hurtling up the turnpike, I’ve taken note of other RV model names. Some have appropriate descriptors such as Vacationer, Holiday Rambler and Summerland. Others are poetic or enigmatic: Imagine, Shadow Cruiser, Spirit, Transcend, Solaria and Reflection.
