The Restless Universe: Understanding X-Ray Astronomy in the Age of Chandra and Newton – Eric Schlegel


Chandra X-Ray observatory, named after Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, has provided scientists with the best x-ray images ever taken of the universe. To explore the satellite’s mission and its discoveries, I would recommend reading The Restless Universe: Understanding X-Ray Astronomy in the Age of Chandra and Newton by Eric Schlegel.

Wacom Pen Tablets


Wacom produces high quality pen inputs for the PC. These tablets allow users to write or draw on the computer screen with a pen. The Intuos series provides the best quality reproduction of pen to digital information. These are a favorite among artists wishing to create digital masterpieces. I purchased the Intuos 3 a few years ago; with it I took notes, kept a journal, and drew. Microsoft OneNote goes perfectly with most pen inputs. Thanks to OneNote, all my notes from college are contained in numerous, easily organized, digital notebooks.


Light on Yoga – B.K.S. Iyengar

Great illustrated book on Yoga:
Every asana contains several pictures and a detailed description. Some of the asanas are literally impossible!

Baraka (1992)

Great “movie” about human life and religion. I say “movie” because Baraka has “no plot, no dialogue, no actors.”  It contains numerous religious ceremonies and peoples which I never knew existed. The visuals are stunning and I would suggest watching the Blu-Ray version. Really surprising that it only earned $1.3 million in the box office.
Check out the trailer here. Purchase the Blu-Ray here.

Ode to the World
