Abstract:

Mathematicians develop habits of thought and employ
ways of expressing their ideas that are not always
shared by others who wish to learn mathematics or
use mathematics in their own disciplines. We shall
comment on various aspects of this phenomenon
and the (often amusing) pitfalls it creates for e ffective
communication. (Received September 18, 2012)

Californians bring out gloves, hats

A 40-mile stretch of a major highway north of
Los Angeles reopened some 17 hours after snow
shut the route and forced hundreds of truckers 
to spend the cold night in their rigs.

The California Highway Patrol shut the Grapevine
segment of Interstate 5 on Thursday afternoon,
severing a key link between the Central Valley 
and Los Angeles.

"There must have been 1,000 Mack trucks lined up,"
said traveler Heidi Blood, 40.
