Dramatic Dialogue

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 3:24 PM

“How’s tricks?” — Cop in “Impulse” (1990).
(See a Log24 search for that word.)

That line of dialogue is in memory of a woman who reportedly
died in Bellingham, Washington, on January 11, 2021.

See also Bellingham in this journal.

To Sum It

Filed under: General — m759 @ 2:45 PM

"To sum it all up I see mathematical activity as
a jumping ahead and then plodding along
to chart a path by rational toil."

Verena Huber-Dyson, Feb. 15, 1998

"VERENA HUBER-DYSON, mathematician and logician,
died yesterday [March 12, 2016] in Bellingham, Washington,
at the age of 92. She was Emeritus Professor of the 
Philosophy Department, University of Calgary, Alberta."

—   John Brockman at edge.org, March 13, 2016

Some posts from earlier this month are related to mathematical
activity, Bellingham, jumping ahead, and plodding along:

"The process of plodding is being analyzed by proof theory,
a prolific branch of meta mathematics. Still riddled with questions
is the jumping." — Huber-Dyson, loc. cit.

Still riddled — "Why IS a raven like a writing desk?"

It turns out the the picture on the office wall from the
recent film "Spotlight" in last Sunday's 3 PM post 
is not of Bellingham, Washington, but rather of La Paz,
Bolivia. See the update at the end of the post.

Daily Globe  Meets  Daily PlaNet

Office scene from "Spotlight," a 2015 film about The Boston Globe

Detail of the above office scene 

A photo from the Web of Mount Baker and Bellingham WA 
that may or may not match the "Spotlight" picture's location.

Update of 1 AM on March 3, 2016 —

A much better match for the "Spotlight" office picture is this image of
Mount Illimani and La Paz, Bolivia, from dreamstime.com

The MathNEXUS "website of the week" on April 14, 2013,
was the Diamond 16 Puzzle and its related webpages.
