• 18/4/2019 - Math and science people are a breed unto themselves

Math and science people are a breed unto themselves. The ones I know love to take things apart, figure things out, see how things work, and calculate stuff that the rest of us sort of don't even think about.My daughter is a geek and proud of it. She loves when I get her a magazine subscription that lets her learn and delve deep into a topic. Math and Science Related Magazines that Geeks LoveAt Least My Geek Daughter Does!My daughter is a math and science geek. Her bachelors degree is in chemistry education, and she now teaches advanced placement calculus.As a lowly Algebra I (and that was the highest math class I took) and Biology B (the biology option for students not planning to go to college, which I did, but had no interest in the advanced science class) student, I never quite figured out where my daughter got the math and science genes, but she did.And it was always a sure bet to get her a magazine at Christmas or for her birthday that let her read in-depth articles that satisfied her curiosity for all that stuff.

It depicts an inventor working on a perpetual motion machine. The device shown is a 'mass leverage' device, where the spherical weights on the right have more leverage than those on the left, supposedly creating a perpetual rotation, but there are a greater number of weights to the left, balancing the device."Photo Credit: In the public domain.

• 15/4/2019 - With its inherent resistance to drought and heat

With its inherent resistance to drought and heat, Adam's needle basks in sunlight.Preferred habitats are open areas such as open or thin woods, hills, and prairies. Also bluffs and rocky or sandy coastal areas entice Adam's needle.Adam's needle responds well to cultivation. Yucca filamentosa blends beautifully into private and public landscapes, especially in garden or parking lot borders and in rock gardens. Adam's needle thrives in xeriscapes (Greek: ξήρος, xeros, "dry"), which minimize supplemental watering. Furthermore, Adam's needle joyously accepts confinement in pots or urns. Propagation: a lover of life As an adaptable and hardy perennial (Latin: per, "through" + annus, "year"), thereby with a lifespan of more than two years, Adam's needle enjoys life, which is evinced in its willingness to spread beyond the comfort zone of its native range and habitat.Moreover, Adam's needle propagates from seeds and from root cuttings.

Also, Adam's needle sends out communities of hardy, viable offshoots. U.S.D.A. Plant Hardiness Zone The U.S. Department of Agriculture Plant Hardiness Zone Map, which classes plants according to the coldest temperature at which they remain viable, places Adam's needle in Zone 6 (-10° to 0° Fahrenheit, -23° to -18° Celsius) to Zone 10 (30° to 40° F., -1° to 4° C.). bear grass filamentsSmith College Gardens and Greenhouses - Northampton, central western MassachusettsRusty Clark, CC BY 2.0, via Flickr Externals: What Adam's needle looks like Long, thick underground stems firmly anchor Adam's needle deep into the earth. Above the ground, basal leaves swirl circularly out and up to form a rosette around a central point. Leaves are grey green or blue green.

Stiff and sword-shaped with sharp, pointed tips, leaves have a width of less than an inch (2.5 centimeters) and a length range of almost 12 to 30 inches (30 to 76 centimeters).Long, curly, filamentous threads dance along the margins, or edges, of the leaves. Proviso: if it looks like a sword, it might very well cut like a sword:The sharp, pointed tips of the sword-shaped leaves, which defensively encircle the floral stalk with its life-perpetuating seeds, are capable of gashing and slashing with the most finely sharpened rapiers. Certainly children should be discouraged from playing with these potentially injurious leaves. Adults also should realize that Adam's needle leaf tips may draw blood from even calloused bare skin.
