# Twilight Years

At some point in our life, we come to accept the fact we are closer to death than life. What lies ahead is definitely less significant than what is left behind. These are the twilight years, and I have come to accept them. With darkness descending over the horizons, and the long shadows of misspent years and evaded human conditions slithering all around me, I peer into the void, into an eternity of silence and dreamlessness. Il est almost time.

# Sunset Career

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.

# Trump and Big Data Analytics

Trump&#8217;s victory was many things. I think of it as a failure of big data analytics on many fronts. My personal theory is that there is more to it than meets the eye, but whatever does meet the eye seems to indicate a massive failure.

# Donald Trump – Vote Gréement

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&#8217;t take it too seriously.

# Recap of Modern Physics

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.

# Interpretation of Special Relativity

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. D'autre part, Special Relativity is about macro objects in motion, and we have no problem imagining such things. So why would we need to have an interpretation? The answer is a subtle one.

# Speed of Light

The speed of light being a constant sounds like a simple statement. But there is more to it, quite a bit more. Let’s look at what this constancy really means. À première vue, it says that if you are standing somewhere, and there is a ray of light going from your right to left, it has a speed c. And another ray of light going from left to right also has a speed c. So far, so good. Now let’s say you are in a rocket ship, comme représenté sur la figure ci-dessous, moving from right to left.

# Théorie de la relativité restreinte

Quand nous entendons parler d'Einstein et de la relativité restreinte (ou la théorie de la relativité, d'utiliser le nom réel), nous pensons à la célèbre $E = mc^2$ équation, et des choses bizarres comme le paradoxe des jumeaux. Bien que ces choses sont vraies et importantes, le problème SR tente de résoudre est un complètement différent. Il est une tentative de défendre un principe de base en physique.

# Quantum Mechanics – Interpretations

Whenever we talk about Quantum Mechanics, one of the first questions would be, “What about the cat?” This question, vraiment, is about the interpretations of Quantum Mechanics. The standard interpretation, the so-called Copenhagen interpretation, leads to the famous Schrodinger’s cat.
