This is the script to the 1987 movie Empire of the Sun which is based on an autobiographical book by J. G. Ballard. I am posting it as a response to the politicking going on by former CBC employee Tetsuro Shigematsu who has written something called Empire of the Son ... which is somewhat troubling. It is also meant to hold the new UBC president Mr. Ono's feet to the fire for publicizing Shigematsu politicking.

This is the second volume in a series of books – The Best of Ian Fleming – meant to encourage the reading public to pick up the Ian Fleming novels and read them.   In the first volume I explain the raison d’être for the Bond novels.   The Bond novels are a masterful undertaking of political and psychological warfare aimed at Soviet machination and propaganda in the West.   Ian Fleming exceeded beyond his expectations! In this volume, we shall look at the second set of four Bond Novels...

Most students are introduced to the Harmonic Series and are told it yields an infinite sum, and then things are left at that. There is something beautiful in taking the next step, which is to introduce the Euler Constant. Unfortunately thus next step is not always done. This little article was lost amongst the author's notes in 1983 and only recently found in a box of old manuscripts. There will be other A Little Bit of Euler articles.

In September 1956 Canadian RCAF fighter pilots flying CF-86 Sabre jets with NATO in Europe inadvertently down an American CIA U-2 over Germany. The pilot Howard Carey was killed. The Canadian Incident, as it has become known, is inextricably tied to the decision to cancel the Avro Arrow CF-105 project in February 1959. The reader is welcome to read the Canadian Incident script as well posted at archive.org. Perhaps the CBC will take the Canadian Incident script and make it into a movie ... the...

A close look at the life and work of Karl Schwarzschild and in particular the Schwarzschild Metric and his two papers from 1916. It is evident that scientists like Riemann and Schwarzschild were looking at gravity as a curving of space long before Einstein and his famous 1916 paper on the Theory of General Relativity. Einstein was definitely not the first physicist to suggest that space-time was curved. Schwarzschild wrote a paper on the subject of the curvature of space in 1900, over fifteen...

In presenting a simple dynamical model for a thin disk galaxy we are left with a single parameter, the arreal matter density, to fit to our experimental data and the challenge is to measure...
