What is the best english grammar book/reference out there that is beginner friendly and reliable? I'm planning a parser of english phrases, and I want to be able to read simple phrases like "I have this" or "could you do that". At first I thought this would be kind of hard or at least I thought that I would need to streamline it a lot (as in, make it very specific cases), but as I started designing this I realized that there IS some structure to the english language (go figure) and that it can be quite simple. This is all great, except I don't really know much about grammar.

Does anybody know what the "P.A" stands for? My professor has always said it with the abbreviation so I don't know what it is or what it does.

A human would need a heat shield to skydive from the edge/outside our atmosphere, right? So a pure drop from a spacecraft (a la 2009 star trek) would be impossible without heat protection, right?

Computers overtaking math!

Computers overtaking math! 3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
>Shalosh B. Ekhad, the co-author of several papers in respected mathematics journals, has been known to prove with a single, succinct utterance theorems and identities that previously required pages of mathematical reasoning. Last year, when asked to evaluate a formula for the number of integer triangles with a given perimeter, Ekhad performed 37 calculations in less than a second and delivered the verdict: “True.” >Shalosh B. Ekhad is a computer. Or, rather, it is any of a rotating cast of computers used by the mathematician Doron Zeilberger, from the Dell in his New Jersey office to a supercomputer whose services he occasionally enlists in Austria. The name — Hebrew for “three B one” — refers to the AT&T 3B1, Ekhad’s earliest incarnation. >“The soul is the software,” said Zeilberger, who writes his own code using a popular math programming tool called Maple. >Doron Zeilberger, a mathematician at Rutgers University, believes computers are overtaking humans in their ability to discover new mathematics. A mustachioed, 62-year-old professor at Rutgers University, Zeilberger anchors one end of a spectrum of opinions about the role of computers in mathematics. He has been listing Ekhad as a co-author on papers since the late 1980s “to make a statement that computers should get credit where credit is due.” For decades, he has railed against “human-centric bigotry” by mathematicians: a preference for pencil-and-paper proofs that Zeilberger claims has stymied progress in the field. “For good reason,” he said. “People feel they will be out of business.” Things seem cloudy for pure math people's future… https://www.simonsfoundation.org/quanta/20130222-in-computers-we-trust/

How does it feel, that you guys will never be the next Neil DeGrasse Tyson, or any other famous scientist. Especially now that H-1B visas are more popular than hiring american workers, NASA is almost dead, and the only safe haven for STEM is in Europe, where Putin will create the motherland all over again. The only two viable career paths in STEM is engineering and Computer science, most of you will all end up being like Nikola Tesla, debt ridden and living in poverty, while the business majors will be recognize as the pilots of humanity, look at J.P Morgan and Thomas Edison, in the 21st Century we have Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

Reverse Microwave?

Reverse Microwave? 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Was discussing the idea with a professor, he doesn't think it's possible. The basic idea is using a form of stochastic cooling, putting water molecules in a strong electric field so that the dipoles all align (and so form a crystalline structure when the field is removed), effectively freezing the water (and the steak or whatever). Is there a physical reason this couldn't work, or merely the practical concerns of the energy and fine-tuning of the field required?

Hey /sci/ how do I learn physics better, specifically from the book "Physics for Scientists and Engineers". I'm in the first course of physics and I'm struggling. I can't go to my professor's office hours because during the times that he has it I have class. What does /sci/ recommend me to do to help me learn physics and study physics better. Here is a list of things of what I already do 1. Read chapter before lecture 2. I attempt to do the problems 3. Read again tl;dr my mind sucks at grasping the concepts of physics and applying them.

Genuine question. Why don't we kill the severely retarded? I used to work at a facility for the severely retarded (the very same facility Hitler names about forced castration) taking care of the severely retarded. People who literally lie in bed all day and shit themselves, puke, and can't even eat without a pegg tube. Why do we keep these people alive and facilitate them?
