Those who prefer literature to science often shy away from mathematics, but a new study finds that English types are not so different from their chemistry friends. In fact, Franco Moretti, an English professor at Stanford University, believes that to fully understand literature, one must utilize mathematical tools.Continue reading "Bestsellers & the “Science” of Trends" »Posted on June 18, 2007 at 12:01 AM in Books | Permalink | Comments (1) | | | It sounds terrifying, but that’s what U of Cal Berkeley is calling their summer reading list: Disaster! The university asked its own faculty and staff members to each recommend one book that he or she thinks anyone in college—or anyone else for that matter—should read this year under the theme of survival. Overwhelmingly, the responses came back about the hot-button issues these days: , glaciers melting and sea levels rising, suicide bombers, species destruction, the harmful effects of population growth, and other problems of that will be facing future generations.

With 380 million people using Google each month, the move would give a significant boost to the development of e-books and have a serious impact on the publishing industry and book retailers. According to Jens Redmer, director of Google Book Search in Europe, after many years of setbacks the electronic book looked poised to go main-stream. Commuters in Japan are already reading entire novels on their mobile phones. Sony recently launched its Reader, a digital book device with an online book store stocking 10,000 titles. Amazon, the world’s largest online book seller, is also planning to launch an e-book service. Google Book-Search users can search the book and see snippets relevant to their search; web links then guide readers to sites such as Amazon where they can buy a physical copy of the book. Major publishers such as Penguin, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster are among those involved in the project. E-book advocate and science-fiction author, Cory Doctorow of web-directory Boing Boing, said, in effect, that publishers should send Google fruitbaskets for vastly expanding their market.

We think he's on track to be the next Arthur C. Clarke (2001 -A Space Odessey). His trilogy, which is as much literature as science fiction, asks the great question: if there is intelligent life out there, how come we never encountered it?Here's a brilliant, recent review of his work.

Is the tract of spacetime that we inhabit just one of an infinite stream of universes, all with different physical properties, some of which might support life, but not as we know it, and others that are barren and fleeting? Are we, so to speak, just one volume in an infinite library? This is the multiverse theory of creation: in an infinite set of universes, anything can happen, including John Milton and Paris Hilton. These are a few of the enigmas Davies, a theoretical physicist who has turned to the new science of astrobiology, ponders in this timely and important new book. Tim Radford, of The Guardian of London, marvels at The Goldilocks Enigma, Davies's discourse on the fundamental forces that gave rise to the universe and to life in his review in the link below.LinkPosted on January 16, 2007 at 08:19 AM in Astrobiology, Astronomy, Books, Cosmology, Extraterrestrial Life | Permalink | Comments (0) | | | Today's Video Classic -a BBC interview and staff favorite perfect for a leisurely Sunday- explores the existence of God with Oxford author, Richard Dawkins, author of The Selfish Gene and The River Out of Eden among others.
