Peter distills his picks for the top 5 posts for 2012

By / December 31, 2012

My list is much more straightforward than Eileen’s. I find that restraint and discipline comes with age. Mostly. (Eileen adds—See Peter’s fifth story. We’re even!) Anyway, I crafted my list based on trends, biases, underreporting by commercial news services, murky understanding of two-dimensional phenomena and, well, bad taste. In several cases, the post I picked…

MS&T’11 symposium to highlight career of Jay Narayan

By / March 2, 2011

Credit: Narayan, NCSU. One of the things I am looking forward to at this fall’s MS&T program is a special symposium dedicated to the research contributions of Jagdish (Jay) Narayan, a professor at North Carolina State University. Narayan, a member of ACerS and many other sci-tech organizations, has covered a lot of territory in his…
