David Brat wins over Eric Cantor, GOP freaks out!

cantor-vs-bratBreitbart: Who Is the Real David Brat?

Holy crap the comments over there are nutso!

OK time for a rant:

Cantor is to blame for his own loss due to his apparent disinterest in his actual constituency. He was busy campaigning everywhere but in his district. Not to mention his amnesty flip flop between January and now. Had Cantor bothered to actually campaign in his district he might have made it competitive. But he was busy living it up on the national stage and forgot all about those whom he had to convince to actually, you know, cast a ballot for him. Continue reading

The Magic of Chemistry – with Andrew Szydlo

Zbigniew Szydlo (also known as Andrew Szydlo) is a chemist, academician and teacher.

Szydlo was born in England to Polish parents, where he attended Latymer Upper School, and then Imperial College London and University College London. He currently teaches chemistry at Highgate School in North London. He holds MSc, PhD, DIC, ACGI, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, of which he is also a CChem.

An expert on the history of alchemy, Szydlo is the author of the standard work on the Polish alchemist, Michael Sendivogius. His work on seventeenth-century science is an ongoing project to which he hopes to devote further attention.

He frequently gives public lectures in the United Kingdom on topics including the History of Chemistry. Recent performances at Cambridge University, Durham University, University College London, the Royal Institution, Cheltenham Science Festival and Hampton Court have received much acclaim: writing in the journal Chemistry Industry on Szydlo’s performance at Cambridge, John Wilkins remarked that ‘Dr Szydlo exceeded all expectations; he raced through vast tracts of practical chemistry, history, alchemy, the discovery of oxygen, the internal combustion engine, and on occasion, introduced music too.

His lecture was interspersed with flashes, bangs, color changes, detonations and eruptions, keeping the 350-strong crowd on the edge of their seats throughout.’ This lively, multi-media approach characterizes Szydlo’s performances, which include experiments drawn from a wide repertory, ranging from the chemistry of color to pyrotechnics and high explosives.
