It's a blog! Mainly of book reviews.
The final chapter is on applications. This means fusion reactors and "space physics"; what he really means is naturally occurring plasmas, which, since they constitute ~99% of "normal" matter, makes them of great scientific interest.
A brief excursion into the realms of plasma instrumentation - exactly how does one measure what the density, temperature or electromagnetic field is in a plasma? Fairly superficial coverage but better than nothing.
Jonah can't hide; God stirs up a storm!
Once again the Pearl Poet demonstrates great powers of description.
An inordinate amount of time and dialogue spent setting up Bernie's English Country House Mystery...
So I just picked up all the Burglar Books the 2nd hand bookshop in Fredericton had, which was the first and two other random members of the series. Circumstances have changed a bit between the first book and this; the supporting cast is completely different apart from Ray the corrupt cop, Bernie runs a 2nd hand bookshop of his own (a money-losing business) and seems to be less sexist. On the other hand he still burgles and still ends up having to solve a murder...
Bernie's adventures are still amusing but in this example are also a bit confusing...how did not end up arrested, again?
And so I skip circuit theory, transmission lines and waveguides to move on to electromagnetism fromthe perspective of special relativity.
Well, well! Rhodenbarr commits a burglary and ends up involved in a murder investigation - again! One has to ignore the preposterousness in order to enjoy these.
