Odd Socks

October 31, 2015

Sut Hwyl, How are Neil,

I remember you well of course, and best wishes to your Aunt Elizabeth, her husband and children. It is a great pleasure to know that you still have “Molecular Dynamics”. It is all based on Barry John’s instructions for the fly half, volume two, appendix one, the double side step without falling over. At the time we were working with a laser from California, made by Apollo Instruments, capable of drilling itself through granite. I am very glad that you found the blog interesting. There is an ever so slight and very public disagreement with Wikipedia, but the latter has been flattened by scientometrics, as per a tackle by J. P. R. Williams or Tommy David of Llanelli. (Showing my age now). I am still as scruffy as ever, until my wife lays down the law. I have a theory based on the chiral anomaly that two feet, being enantiomers or mirror images, slowly oscillate into each other like a neutrino, so I wear odd socks to see if left has become right, the socks should have switched over. I lived in a flat in Borth Uchaf, or Upper Borth. It was stone cold and freezing in winter, and like a furnace in summer, and I was driven crazy by the waves breaking on the rocks, so I often slept under the laser at EDCL. One false move and I would have been fried. Your aunt will remember that flat well, and St. Mary’s College Bangor. It was not all physics and you wern’t there.

Pob Hwyl,

Myron

Good evening Dr Evans,

I doubt very much you will remember me but we met in the late eighties. You were courting my aunt Liz from Llanelli and you were polite enough to allow a snotty nosed school boy to hang around. I remember distinctly you gave me a kit of plastic molecules, a copy of molecular dynamics (which I still have) and you held me enthralled with talk of the power of laser beams (which to me at the time was science fiction).

I came across your name by way of wikipedia and have spent many hours reading your blog and trying (and failing unfortunately) to understand more than 10% of it. No matter as when I read the words I still see a quiet man with odd socks and a fabulous beard and it takes me straight back to the eighties.

It may be of interest to you that I live 20 minutes from Aberystwyth as I seem to recall you lived there at the time (Borth?)

I shall continue to follow your work with great interest and who knows, one day I may understand 11%.

With fond memories

Social Credit scores in China

October 31, 2015

Many thanks, on this credit system I would get zero because I always wear odd socks. Einstein would get less than zero because he often forgot to wear them at all, for example at his citizenship swearing in. On top of that he had wild, unruly hair and his eyes glazed over when he thought of torsion. No real poet would ever get credit. There is a lot of interst from China in our work at AIAS / UPITEC, so real art transcends all boundaries. This is not quite as nad as the uniforms of Mao, and the caps, but almost as bad.

Subj: Social Credit scores in China

Hello there Myron. The following article may be of interest to you………

China ‘social credit’: Beijing sets up huge system

By Celia Hatton BBC News, Beijing

26 October 2015

In most countries, the existence of a credit system isn’t controversial. Past financial information is used to predict whether individuals will pay their mortgages or credit card bill in the future.

But China is taking the whole concept a few steps further. The Chinese government is building an omnipotent “social credit” system that is meant to rate each citizen’s trustworthiness.

By 2020, everyone in China will be enrolled in a vast national database that compiles fiscal and government information, including minor traffic violations, and distils it into a single number ranking each citizen.

That system isn’t in place yet. For now, the government is watching how eight Chinese companies issue their own “social credit” scores under state-approved pilot projects.

One of the most high-profile projects is by Sesame Credit, the financial wing of Alibaba. With 400 million users, Alibaba is the world’s biggest online shopping platform. It’s using its unique database of consumer information to compile individual “social credit” scores.

Users are encouraged to flaunt their good credit scores to friends, and even potential mates. China’s biggest matchmaking service, Baihe, has teamed up with Sesame to promote clients with good credit scores, giving them prominent spots on the company’s website.

“A person’s appearance is very important,” explains Baihe’s vice-president, Zhuan Yirong. “But it’s more important to be able make a living. Your partner’s fortune guarantees a comfortable life.”

More and more of Baihe’s 90 million clients are displaying their credit scores in their dating profiles, doing away with the idea that a credit score is a private matter.

However, Sesame Credit will not divulge exactly how it calculates its credit scores, explaining that it is a “complex algorithm”.

The company refused to give an interview to the BBC, citing concerns that the government would refuse to grant a permanent licence to issue credit scores if it engaged with the foreign media.

Instead, their spokeswoman issued a statement, discounting persistent rumours that the organisation monitors users’ social media activity when assessing their social credit.

Sesame Credit tracks “financial and consumption activities of our users, and materials published on social media platforms do not affect our users’ personal Sesame Credit score,” explained spokeswoman Miranda Shek.

Alibaba is the world’s biggest online shopping platform

Sesame rates the online financial transactions of those using Alibaba’s payment system, in addition to data it obtains from its partners including the taxi service Didi Kuaidi, rating whether users bothered to settle taxi payments.

Controversially, the company does not hide that it judges the types of products shoppers buy online.

“Someone who plays video games for 10 hours a day, for example, would be considered an idle person, and someone who frequently buys diapers would be considered as probably a parent, who on balance is more likely to have a sense of responsibility,” Li Yingyun, Sesame’s technology director told Caixin, a Chinese magazine, in February.

The Chinese authorities are watching the pilot process very carefully. The government system won’t be exactly the same as the private systems, but government officials are certainly taking cues from the algorithms developed under the private projects.

A lengthy planning document from China’s elite State Council explains that social credit will “forge a public opinion environment that trust-keeping is glorious”, warning that the “new system will reward those who report acts of breach of trust”.

Details on the inner workings of the system are vague, though it is clear that each citizen and Chinese organisation will be rated. A long list of people in certain professions will face particular scrutiny, including teachers, accountants, journalists and medical doctors. The special list even includes veterinarians and tour guides.

A national database will merge a wide variety of information on every citizen, assessing whether taxes and traffic tickets have been paid, whether academic degrees have been rightly earned and even, it seems, whether females have been instructed to take birth control.

Critics say the social credit system is “nightmarish” and “Orwellian”. However, some believe that some kind of credit system is badly needed in China.

“Many people don’t own houses, cars or credit cards in China, so that kind of information isn’t available to measure,” explains Wen Quan, a blogger who writes about technology and finance.

“The central bank has the financial data from 800 million people, but only 320 million have a traditional credit history.”

“Credit systems build trust between all citizens” Wen Quan says.

“Without a system, a conman can commit a crime in one place and then do the same thing again in another place. But a credit system puts people’s past history on the record. It’ll build a better and fairer society,” she promises.

In a trendy neighbourhood in downtown Beijing, many were enthusiastic when asked about their Sesame Credit ratings, proudly displaying them on their mobile phones.

“It is very convenient,” one young woman smiled. “We booked a hotel last night using Sesame Credit and we didn’t need to leave a cash deposit.”

Sesame has promoted the consumer benefits of a good credit score, from a prominent dating profile on the Baihe matchmaking site to VIP reservations with hotels and car rental companies. A mobile phone game designed by Sesame Credit encourages users to guess whether they have higher or lower credit scores than their friends, encouraging everyone to openly share their ratings.

But few people seemed to understand that a bad score could hurt them in the future, preventing them from receiving a bank loan or signing a lease.

And, even more concerning, many didn’t know they were being rated by Sesame at all. For now, the pilot credit system is voluntary, though it’s difficult to circumvent. Online shopping is a part of life in modern Chinese cities and Alibaba’s financial payment service is ubiquitous.

“We repeatedly remind our customers that using Sesame Credit is voluntary,” explains the matchmaking site’s vice president, Zhuan Yirong.

“But people really care about trust and honesty. Alibaba’s data can provide certain kind of proof. It’s not 100% accurate, but at least it’s one more filter for people to know each other better.”

Perhaps it is good for all citizens to learn quickly about the concept of a “social credit” score, while it is still partly voluntary. Within five years, the government’s mandatory system will rank everyone within China’s borders.

Best wishes.

Study Visits from the Top Four Hundred Universities in the World

October 31, 2015

I have quickly gone through the webometrics world rankings for the top four hundred universities in the world. The result is tens to hundreds of thousands of study visits from essentially all of them since 30th April 2004. This is again the summit of a high mountain, because these are only the visits that I can identify via URL’s, there must be tens or hundreds of thousands more from private computers that cannot be identified. To bring up the webometrics university world rankings google “webometrics university rankings” or similar. There are over twenty thousand universities and institutes ranked there. I cannot easily identify the considerable interest from China that has developed in the past few years, there may have been visits from the best Chinese universities at present. These are Peking (37 in the world), Chai Kiang (48), Jiao Tang (70), Shanghai Medical (111), Cheng Kung (127), Bejing Normal (133), Sun Yat Sen (137), Huazhong (158), UST China (163), Jian Tong (166), Bejing Aeronautics (173), Xiamen (175), Nanyang Tech (193), Nanjing (206), Sichuan (207), Harbin Tech (219), Lanzhau (227), Dulian (230), Jilin (248), Zhongnan (281), South East China (301), Electronic Science and Technology China (325), South China Tech (343), Nanshei (359), Shanghai (366), Tianjin (381). In comparison Trinity College Dublin is at 247 and UW Cardiff at 326, the highest ranking college in Wales. There have been many study visits from both Trinity College Dublin and UW Cardiff, in fact all the Welsh and Irish colleges of relevance, including many from Aberystwyth. So all we have to do is to formalize AIAS and this interest will all be focused on the Institute. This is a phenomenon of contemporary physics, it has never happened before in the history of science. As they would say in the sixties, a freak out. However this has been achieved entirely without LSD. In order to reach Aberystwyth, Bangor and Swansea I will next go through numbers 400 to 1000, relying on memory.

331(5):Simplified Derivation of the Relativistic Zeeman Splitting

October 31, 2015

This is a simplified derivation giving the same result as used in Note 331(2) except for a sign change that does not affect the splitting pattern of Note 331(3). This is an entirely new type of Zeeman splitting deduced by lifting the rough Dirac approximation of the ninety year old literature. Many new spectra emerge, this is the simplest possible development, for atomic H.

AIAS Institute at Aberystwyth

October 31, 2015

Given the huge amount of high quality interest in ECE theory described in following postings on this blog, it is obvious that an AIAS institute should be established at Aberystwyth, currently ranked 627 in the world. This is a middle standing type of ranking, not a world ranking, but Aberystwyth is the oldest college of the University of Wales, famously founded by the pennies of the poor to bring education to all in Wales, especially Welsh speaking nonconformists who were excluded from Oxford and Cambridge, which accepted only Anglicans of the established church of my ancestral cousin Henry VIII Tudor. Nonconformists and Catholics were excluded from OxBridge and Trinity College Dublin, founded by my ancestral cousin Elizabeth 1st Tudor. Of course all of that nonsense has changed now, all denominations are admitted to Oxford and Cambridge and TCD. Bearing in mind that all this interest is centred on a small coal miner’s house in Craig Cefn Parc, it would certainly be centred on Aberystwyth. There would be no need for any college expenditure. A university is first and foremost a place for scholarship. Wales has never been a country that slavishly adheres to dogma. One can see this through the fact that Christianity in Britain was started by my ancestral cousin, Eurgain ferch Caradog Santes (the Celtic Saint Eurgain daughter of Caratacus) around the year 40 or 50 near the later Llan Illtud Fawr. At that time the dogma was Druidical, and it was dangerous to oppose the Druids. Similarly Henry VIII was no friend of Anabaptists, neither was my ancestral cousin Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of the 1649 Republic. Henry VIII was however a Catholic and remained a Catholic – Fidei Defensor. The first Anglican King was Edward VI, his son by Queen Jane Seymour. The Anabaptists supported the 1647 Agreement of the People with the Levellers, opposed by Cromwell and Ireton at the 1647 Putney Debates. This pamphlet was the precursor of the 1776 United States Declaration of Independence, and the Human Rights legislations of our times. These human rights include the right to speak and revive any language.

Study Visits from the Ivy league and the Original Colonial Colleges

October 31, 2015

The Ivy league was established in 1954 and is based at Princeton. It is made up of the following universities, in brackets are the Webometrics world rankings: Harvard (1), Stanford (3) Cornell (4), Columbia (7), University of Pennsylvania (11), Yale (12), Princeton (28), Brown (99) and Dartmouth College (158). The original colonial colleges included Rutgers (43) and the College of William and Mary (452). In THES rankings Princeton is number 7 in the world, Brown 51, and Dartmouth 104. There have been several thousand study visits from all these famous Universities to www.aias.us and combined sites since April 30th 2004. The same is also true of the other world leading universities. They are situated in North America (the U. S. and Canada), Britain, Switzerland and Japan. By webometrics these are currently (not in order): MIT, Berkeley, Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, ETH, Michigan, Washington, Minnesota Twin Cities, Michigan State, Texas Austin, Texas A and M, Wisconsin Madison, Penn State, UCLA, Toronto, Duke, Purdue, UC San Diego, British Columbia and Florida, By THES they are Caltech, MIT, Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, Berkeley, UCLA, Tokyo, Kyoto, Chicago, Michigan, ETH, Johns Hopkins and Toronto. There have been thousands of study visits to www.aias.us and combined sites from all these universities since April 30th 2004, and from all the world’s best several hundred or so universities. This is only the peak of the mountain, i.e. only those study visits that I can identify by URL’s. Staff, post docs and students must be studying ECE by their tens of thousands through private computers.

Discussion of the Scientometrics

October 31, 2015

Many thanks to Co President Gareth Evans, who has worked earnestly for years as nominator and supporter. So have Prof. Alwyn van der Merwe and others. Max Planck famously summed up the physics establishment of his time by waiting for them all to die off (half in humour). If there is a physics establishment any more it is all studying ECE. This is a team effort and kudos to all AIAS / UPITEC.

Study Visits to AIAS / UPITEC from the Californian Universities

October 31, 2015

I would say that California is a top ranking State for research and education, from April 30th 2004 there have been several thousand study visits from all the leading California universities to www.aias.us and combined sites www.aias.us, www.upitec.org, and www.atomicprecision.com. These are their current rankings using Times Higher Education (THES) and Webometrics: Caltech (world’s number one by THES), by Webometrics: Stanford 3, UC Berkeley 5, UC Los Angeles 9, UC San Diego 18, UC Davis 27, Southern California 31, UC San Francisco 31, UC Irvine 52, UC Santa Barbara 76, UC Santa Cruz 88, UC Riverside 105; by THES: UC Berkeley 13, UC Los Angeles 16, UC Santa Barbara 39, UC San Diego 39, UC Davis 44 and so on. These are marked in the collected scientometrics by UCLA, UCSB, UCSD, UCI, UCSC and so on, and the readership can see many hundreds of study visits from these famous world ranking universities of the west coast. Stanford is the only Ivy League university on the west coast. There have been several thousand study visits from the famous Ivy league universities of the east coast, almost all in the world’s top twenty. Obviously, the new educational system of AIAS / UPITEC has been accepted by the best in the world, and equally obviously, ECE is a new school of thought in physics which will be here for as long as physics is here.
