Annotation The scope of the July 1999 conference covers Brownian ratchets, stochastic resonance, biomedicine, semiconductors, electronic devices, lasers, turbulence, and spectroscopy. Among the topics of the 66 papers are quantum stress tensor fluctuations, signatures of electron-electron interaction in nanoelectric device shot noise, the scale invariance of 1/f noise, Parrondo's paradoxical games, and what physicists can contribute to economics. Other topics include additive noise and noise-induced nonequilibrium phase transitions, entropy generation in computation and the second law of thermodynamics, high frequency noise modeling in MOSFETs, a percolative approach to resistance fluctuations, short time-scales in the Kramers problem, activated escape of driven systems, and numerical methods for systems excited by white noise.

 An estimated 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States. Only one in 10,000 are found dead. Yet unsolved child murders are almost a daily occurrence—of nearly 52,000 juvenile homicides between 1980 and 2008, more than 20 percent remain open. Drawing on FBI reports, police and court records, and interviews with victims’ families, this book provides details and evidence for 18 unsolved cases from 1956 to 1998.

Two subjects continue to fascinate people the Old West and a good mystery.

Ball Lightning

Ball Lightning

I published a ball lightning report in Nature in 1976 that received worldwide publicity and I consequently many people wrote to me with accounts of their own experiences.

Down comes a deluge of sonorous hail, Or prone-descending rain. Wide-rent, the clouds Pour a whole flood, and yet, its flame unquenched, Th’unconquerable lightning struggles through. Ragged and fierce, or in red whirling balls, And fires the mountains with redoubled rage. Black from the stroke, above, the smould’ring pine Stands a sad shattered trunk; and, stretched below, A lifeless group the blasted cattle lie. James Thompson, “The Seasons” (1727) have been investigating ball lightning for more than two decades. I published a ball lightning report in Nature in 1976 that received worldwide publicity and I consequently many people wrote to me with accounts of their own experiences. Within a very short time, I had accumulated about 200 firsthand accounts, and the file has continued to grow steadily since then. Several things impressed me. Few of those who wrote to me had any detailed foreknowledge of ball lightning at the time of their observation. Nonetheless, once reports of other phenomena such as St. Elmo’s fire had been eliminated, the remaining descriptions were remarkably consistent. Furthermore, nearly all who contacted me were keen to have an explanation of what they had seen and seemed entirely sincere.

One may discover there is more than simple coincidence to such events — God has been at work.
