José Leite Lopes

José Leite Lopes was a Brazilian theoretical physicist who worked in the field of quantum field theory and particle physics. Leite Lopes began his university studies in 1935, enrolling in industrial chemistry at the Chemistry School of Pernambuco. In 1937, while presenting a paper to a scientific conference in Rio de Janeiro, the young student met Brazilian physicist Mário Schenberg and was introduced by him in São Paulo to Italian physicists Luigi Fantappiè and Gleb Wataghin. All three were working on research in physics at the recently created University of São Paulo, amid a climate of great intellectual excitement and a breeding ground for a bright young generation of what would become the élite of Brazilian physics, such as César Lattes, Oscar Sala, Roberto Salmeron, Jayme Tiomno and Marcelo Damy de Souza Santos. Encouraged to study physics by what he saw, Leite Lopes moved to Rio de Janeiro after hist graduation in 1939, he took the entrance examinations to the National Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Brazil in 1940 and graduated a bachelor in physics in 1942.

Accepting an invitation by Carlos Chagas Filho, Leite Lopes started to work in the same year the Institute of Biophysics of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, but soon moved to the University of São Paulo to take up graduate studies in quantum mechanics with his teacher and sponsor, Mário Schenberg. His main work during this time was on the calculation of Dirac's radiation field of electrons. In 1944, Leite Lopes got an American fellowship to study at Princeton University, in New Jersey, United States, under Josef-Maria Jauch. There, he had the opportunity to learn and work with giants of theoretical physics, such as Albert Einstein, Wolfgang Pauli and John von Neumann, despite the fact that most of the faculty was absent, involved in the Manhattan Project. In 1946, he finished his doctoral dissertation, on the topic of the influence of the recoil of heavy particles on the nuclear potential energy, returned to Rio de Janeiro, he accepted the interim chair of Theoretical and Superior Physics at the University of Brazil, started to lecture on quantum mechanics and quantum theory of radiation.

In 1948 he was confirmed as chairman after presenting a thesis on the theory of nuclear forces. Together with César Lattes, a young physicist from São Paulo who had achieved international fame due to his co-discovery of a new kind of nuclear particle, the pion, Leite Lopes was instrumental in creating in January 1949, in Rio de Janeiro, the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas, a research center in theoretical physics, maintained by funds from Confederação Nacional de Indústrias presided by Euvaldo Lodi. In the same year Leite Lopes was invited by Robert Oppenheimer to spend another year of study at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, where he attended lectures by Richard Feynman, Victor Weisskopf and Paul Dirac. In 1957 he again visited the US on a fellowship, by invitation of Richard Feynman, at the California Institute of Technology. In 1969, the new military regime in Brazil took away his political rights, together with several other professors on the basis of his participation in a "communist conspiracy".

He was dismissed summarily from the Center he had created and exiled himself voluntarily in the USA but after evidence of USA collaboration with the 1964 military coup was manifest he went to Université Louis Pasteur, in Strasbourg, France. From 1974 to 1978, Leite Lopes was appointed full professor with the Université Louis Pasteur, taking up the directorship of the Division of High Energy and the position of vice-director of the Centre de Recherches Nucléaires, a part of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, he returned to Brazil as the director of the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas. He was an honorary president of the Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science. Among many international and national honors and prizes, Leite Lopes received the 1999 UNESCO Science Prize and received the Great Cross of the Brazilian Order of Scientific Merit. Leite Lopes is internationally recognized for his many contributions to theoretical physics in the following areas: Prediction of the existence of neutral vectorial bosons, 1n 1958, by devising an equation which showed the analogy of the weak nuclear interactions with electromagnetism.

Steven Weinberg, Sheldon Glashow and Abdus Salam used these results to develop the electroweak unification. They were awarded with the Nobel Prize of Physics in 1979; the vector dominance model in nuclear electroweak interactions Nuclear shell structure in photonuclear reactions Construction of the Fock relativistic space Meson pseudoscalar potential in deuteron theory Scalar meson pairs Models of lepton and quark structures José Leite Lopes Virtual Library Published papers.

Durch die Wüste

Durch die Wüste is the first full-length solo album by German keyboardist Hans-Joachim Roedelius, best known for his work with Cluster and Aquarello. The title is German for "Through the Desert." The music on Durch Die Wüste was recorded over a two-year period from 1976 to 1978 at Conny's Studio outside of Cologne, Germany. Conny Plank and Dave Hutchins was co-produced by Roedelius and Plank, it was released by Sky Records in 1978. Cluster had achieved international recognition and acclaim the previous year after collaborating with Brian Eno and releasing Cluster & Eno in 1977; this success enabled Roedelius to launch a solo career. In reviewing the album for Allmusic, Keith Farley writes, in part: "Though these tracks stray from beatless space music, the musical structures employed suggest ambience, from the classical melodies of the title track to the gaseous atmosphere of'Glaubersalz.'" Durch Die Wüste has received numerous favorable reviews. Durch Die Wüste was reissued on CD on March 19, 1996 by the American Gyroscope label and in 2009 on the German label Bureau B.

Vinaya Patrika

Vinaya Patrika is a devotional poem composed by the 16th-century Indian poet, Goswami Tulsidas, containing hymns to different Hindu deities to Lord Rama in extreme humility. The language of the text is Braj Bhasha. Vinaya Patrika is an important work of medieval Hindi Bhakti movement. According to Swami Yatiswarananda, when Kaal—the embodiment of evil—threatened to devour Tulsidas, he prayed to Hanuman who appeared to him in a dream. Hanuman advised him to file a petition to Rama to remedy the evil, and, the origin of the Vinaya-Patrika.” Vinaya Patrika has been written as a petition against the six passions and nine vices of Kal Yuga, the plaintiff is Tulsidas himself, though he represents the entire humanity. The judges addressed are Lord Rama, Lakshmana and Shatrughan, it comprises popular devotional hymns to various Hindu Gods, like Ganesha, Devi, Hanuman, Sita and the city of Kashi. The book has now been translated into many languages, including English Hindi translation you can read at vedicaim Shri Ramchandra Kripalu Bhajman Gaiye Ganpati Jagbandan Jai Jai Jagjanani Devi Jai Jai Bhagrathnandini Hindi literature Lochtefeld, James G..

Ed Moran

Ed Moran is a retired track and road runner who specialized in various long-distance disciplines. A gold medalist in the 5000-meter race at the 2007 Pan American Games, he would go on to represent the United States at two IAAF World Cross Country Championships in 2008 and 2009, before finishing the 2011 New York City Marathon in 9th place. Moran moved to the Lawrenceville section of Lawrence Township, Mercer County, New Jersey at the age of 6 and attended Notre Dame High School, where he didn't take up running until his sophomore year. By his senior year of high school, Moran's personal bests were 4:19 in the mile and 9:26 for the 2-mile. Moran studied at the College of William & Mary, where he was a four-time All-American. In spite of being in a track team of prodigies like Sean Graham, Moran became a standout in the 5000 metres, his collegiate career was riddled with serious injuries, due to this it was not until his sixth year of studying while earning a master's degree that he exploded in the 5000 metres.

Moran was close to deciding not to continue running after college. By the time he finished his undergrad studies in 2003, he was working on completing a master's degree in public policy and tried to focus on a career after college, he changed his mind after the 2005 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, where he ran 13:25.87 in the 5000 metres, 14 seconds better than his previous personal best. He subsequently signed a professional contract with Nike. In 2007, Moran won the men's 5000 metres at the 2007 Pan American Games, as of 2014 still holds the course record of the race, he was selected to run for the US at the 2008 IAAF World Cross Country Championships although he did not finish the race. Moran ran the same competition the following year, finishing the course at the 2009 IAAF World Cross Country Championships in 60th place of 137 finishers. Moran coached at College of William & Mary from August 2005 – May 2011 where he helped develop individual training plans for distance runners.

He mentored student-athletes on NCAA Division 1 nationally ranked cross track teams. He recruited high school student-athletes nationwide. Moran performed administrative tasks including budgeting, equipment acquisition and travel logistics, he was in his seventh season on the William and Mary staff, third as a volunteer after four years as a full-time assistant
