Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PIPA (Protect IP Act) are currently being discussed in U.S. Congress. If approved, they will change the face of Internet in the US forever as Internet users in the United States would be placed behind a firewall which would filter out what RIAA, MPAA and certain members of U.S. Congress would not like for you to see. Needless to say, these proposals are not original. China is successfully using them for years, which is why we find that chastising Chinese government for their Great Internet Firewall is a hypocritical move coming from the same people in the U.S. Congress that want to introduce SOPA and PIPA.

My name is olexandr isayev. I work as a Research Scientist at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research interests focus on connecting ab initio electronic structure methods with thermodynamic and kinetic properties of matter. I use state‐of‐the‐art electronic structure methods in combination with a wide variety of techniques from quantum mechanics to molecular dynamics, to solve relevant problems in chemistry, biophysics, and materials science.

A dynamical system in which repeated measurements on a single particle yield the same mean result as a single measurement of the whole ensemble is said to be ergodic. The ergodic theorem expresses a fundamental physical principle, and its validity for diffusive processes has now been demonstrated.
This evening, Apple announced that Steve Jobs, its legendary leader, has died. Watch his powerful talk “How to live before you die” at 2005 Stanford Commencement Address. In which Jobs urges us to pursue our dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks, including death itself.
