My mom used to say that when your child is as big as you, you have to treat them with respect. What she actually said was that you had to address them using a respectful form of “tu,” which doesn’t make any sense in English, but may work in Hindi or French. It worked poetically well in Malayalam. I was reminded of this maternal pearl of wisdom recently when I was watching a movie with my son.
Life is full of contradictions.
I am attending a research retreat on mindfulness and contemplative practices at the beautiful Garrison Institute. I am learning a lot of interesting things, and meeting a lot of like-minded and excellent people – the kind of people with whom I could have deep conversation about the unreal nature of reality, unlike most people from other walks of life would politely and tactfully excuse themselves when I get a bit unreal.
I just finished my first term as a professor at Singapore Management University. I taught an undergraduate course called Computer as an Analysis Tool, which is on business modelling and data-driven decision support. I had about 130 students, in three sections of three classroom hours each per week. Je dois dire que tout cela était une expérience très enrichissante,,en,les raisons de cette déclaration seront exposées sur,,en,théorisé et émis l'hypothèse,,en,c'est Blog Unreal,,en.

Il est almost time.
L'enseignement est une vocation noble et enrichissante. As my sunset career, I have accepted a faculty position at Singapore Management University, l'enseignement de l'analyse des données et la modélisation d'entreprise à l'École des systèmes d'information. Ces sujets sont assis bien avec mon entrepreneurial ventures from earlier this year on data analytics and process automation, qui ont tous été une partie de ma sortie de la retraite.
I am a conspiracy theory nut. Alors permettez-moi de proposer une théorie du complot pour expliquer la victoire Trump choquante. Il est truquage, mais pas la façon dont vous pensiez. Avant de procéder, permettez-moi de dire que ceci est simplement pour le plaisir. Don’t take it too seriously.
Depuis la série de post sur des particules et des interactions est devenu un peu plus longtemps que je voulais, Je pensais le briser. Commençons par un résumé de la physique moderne que vous aurez besoin de comprendre la structure de la matière.
When we looked at Quantum Mechanics, we talked about its various interpretations. The reason we have such interpretations, Je l'ai dit, is that QM deals with a reality that we have no access to, through our sensory and perceptual apparatuses.
