Todd Boekelheide [Though it has little to do with him, but the good film at the end of the post. I would rather have called this post “Salad of Thoughts”]

Berkeley, Thursday, June 4, 2020, 10:48 PM I do not know about the origin of last names, but some got very difficult ones. Of course is not their foul, and changing the last name, just by changing would be a shame. Anyways, this post is not about last names, but I hope I typed correctly, […]

Pascal’s triangle

Berkeley, Sunday, May 31, 2020 9:13 PM The genius of Pascal is that interesting that I continue discovering about him, not by reading about him, not for searching about his works for learning about him, but for learning about his applied works works by applying them, and then learning that he either wrote or invented […]
