|During my Graduate work, I designed and built a custom
electron microscope designed to measure electron emission from surfaces
by both angle and energy.
With this device I discovered an interesting new electron scattering phenomenon which was featured in cover articles, technical books, and textbooks.

|Predicting the Election|
In my 2003 Differential Phenomenon class at the Schilling School for Gifted Children, I predicted the outcome of the 2004 election to be 52% to 48%, with a Republican win.
My claim was that anytime you have a difference in nature, you set up an oscillator. One of the students wondered if we could model presidential politics with oscillators (after all, the parties are different!)
Well, I've been on record now for several years that the 2008 election will also be a Republican win...
but the winner will only serve one term...here is a graph which summarizes my model:
