A List of some Other Educational Resources in Astronomy, Geology, and Physics

Useful for K-14 Grade Teachers or Mentors or Parents and perhaps 3-infinity students

Astronomy, place science, look up, but mainly physics, with some chemistry and now maybe some biology!  The easiest of all sciences to start practicing; all you have to do is look up!  It is also the oldest science and the only science that started as a religious practice, astrology; and astronomers are the second oldest profession.  

Physics, the simplest of all the sciences, but for that reason not the easiest for anybody!

Geology, a place science, but firstly chemistry attached to geography with some physics and biology, too!  In someway, geology is the friendliest of all sciences, since you can walk over the subject matter bend down and pick some up with your hand anytime you want to.  

Computers, you can't do anything today without using one, in some sense you are one, too (a massively parallel machine with very simple processors, neurons, and probably 100,000 GigaBytes of storage, memory).   The earliest artificial computer did astronomy and was called an astrolabe; Java (enabled Browser astrolabe)  WinTEL (Electric astrolabe).  {Of course the universe may be a computer in the mind of God, what ever that may mean!  I do not mean this in a new age way, what ever that is.  Words are tricky things.}

I, Dr. Harold Williams, am still looking for authentic Ethiopian Star Stories.  If the ancient Greeks told some Ethiopian Star Stories (Cassiopeia, Cepheus, Andromeda, Cetus, Perseus, and Pegasus), don't you think the real Ethiopians must have some, too.

Some online books worth reading:
A new exceptional resource on lots of things by Thayer Watkins of San Jose State University Department of Economics, while I found it when looking for information on Spinors, it has much much more.  It has changed my opinion on Economics, a decesion science not a dismal science evidently.
