Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Of course! There are a lot of brainiacs here, as you've probably noticed, but they can be fairly well-mannered most of the time.

Never be afraid to ask questions. Remember, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.


Welcome aboard!

I'm a sophomore biology major at a small, liberal arts college, aiming for my BA and perhaps graduate school in biology. This summer I'm going to be interning at a major research hospital in Ohio, performing research regarding the development of stem cells into insulin-producing beta cells. I'm interested chiefly in cellular and molecular biology but also evolution and many other areas that I have yet to formally explore.

And space science is incredibly cool. Go NASA.
As a diabetic, I can only say, "GOD BLESS YOU!" I hope you find a cure for us.
As for me, I had to leave college after 3 years because working 2 jobs and an internship wasn't enough. The Financial Director told that if I was a minority or a female there was plenty of scholarship money, but none for a white male.
Later on in life, I worked with sci-fi and Star Trek conventions. I met some wonderful people from the show and movies. Some became friends and even helped me with sponsoring the doomed StarFleet Academy series. (That's right, it wasn't just a rumor.) After that I became depressed and disillusioned, thus my hatred of DS9 and Paramount. (It shoulda been MY show there!)
Now with the new Star Trek movie coming out, I ran into this board and am re-acquainting myself with Trek and fellow fans once again.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Hello everyone! I'm a former premium member and longtime lurker. Didn't see a members introduction thread in General or anywhere else, but Sci-Tech is my favorite forum anyway (along with Lost, BSG). I lost interest in Trek a few years ago, in favor of hard-SciFi, but I still enjoy a late night episode of Voyager or Enterprise.

I'm looking forward to the movie, and possible franchise revival, and with chatting here with you all!

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

So, there is a difference about the size of thought itself such that myself includes oneself and here is the sentence that will introduce me as to make one think... maybe?

Oh neat I am a Cadet I like that.,

Published poet and short story writer with loyalties to a long dead Commonwealth that has little similarity to the corrupted tyranny that stands in its place. Second class Ego Maniac (if I had been a first class ego-maniac there would be a statue to me in every city-state under my rule).

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

I am a "retired" newspaper editor (since "journalism career" became an oxymoron sometime in the middle of last year). My journalism degree now qualifies me to ask important and probing questions (e.g., "Do you want fries with that?").

My interests can best be summed up in my Web sites listed in my signature.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

I'm recently graduated with a Master's in Theoretical Physics. I specialized in general relativity, quantum field theory and cosmology, and spent most of my final year studying various aspects of black holes. I'm also interested in various aspects of Unix and computer programming, so yeah, I'm a pretty big techie...

one question FlyingLemons: Why is it called "Theoretical Physics" what does that mean? I always thought physics was the application of theories?

any way welcome to the board my story is quite different but I like to think or should I describe it as to tell myself that I am actually thinking about something important sometimes.

Hamstar: woe Klingon wedding woe. and welcome to this corner of the trek desk.

Theoretical physics tends to deal in the abstract side of physics; it focuses mainly on the mathematics rather than on the experimental or the observational parts of the discipline. Examples of topics of study in theoretical physics might be general relativity, cosmology, quantum field theory, etc... Just as an example of how theoretical physics is sometimes perceived: at my institution, the Theoretical Physics program falls under the Applied Mathematics department rather than the Physics and Astronomy department.

While I'm here, I guess I should introduce (reintroduce?) myself... I'm a long time member here, but haven't been around for a good five years or so. Some of the long-time members may remember me as the TNG forum moderator back in the day. I'll be stopping by the forum here from time to time to see what's being discussed.

I'm currently a doctoral candidate in theoretical astrophysics, so I have a fairly good physics knowledge (just don't ask me to start naming constellations in the sky... I'm not an observer!)

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Hello.

Im a dropout from my university, but I was halfway on the masters-degree before it finaly got to boring. I studied society-planning, a subject that mixes the most boring parts of state-science, sociology, social-antropology, philosophy, and some other stuff into a mix that..... Well, Im not good at lying, so if I should ever try to find a job that my education is relevant for (Apparently, planners are supposed to work within the byraucracy, give guidance to municipal-leaders, and some other areas) and my future employer asks me what I know that is usefull for him or here, the answer will be "nothing"

Perhaps I should have studied something cosmology or physics instead? To bad I stink in math.... Or at least did so in college and high-school. Im thinking about trying again, and see if I can do better this time.

I also sometimes try to write science fiction, but I tend to stop in the midle of the story, probably because I realise that my writing has to many weaknesses.
