The Science Reporter: Who is ultimately responsible for reporting significant findings to the public?
Comedy Interview: Science Reporter (SR) and Stephen Hawking (SH) SR: It’s my pleasure to introduce the most well known scientist on the planet. Stephen Hawking. Who is considered by many to be the next Einstein. I really don’t know what he did to be considered that, so lets get to the point. You’re here to sell a book, “The Grand Design”. SH: Yes. SR: I don’t wanna go down the religious road. I wanna take a slight detour. Was this part of, “The Grand Design”? http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/news/2009/oct/20/string-theorist-takes-over-from-hawking Is this why String Theory is the final theory? Or maybe it’s the money? SH: Confused - No response http://cambridge.tab.co.uk/2010/03/03/hawking-wheely-leaving/ You’re gonna be working in a nest fulla String Theorist. Can we put a number on lucrative? No no that’s too personal, sorry. So you sold out and cashed in. Politics, politics, politics….the interview’s over Einstein. Chief Editor to Science Reporter. SR: He should have defended himself. CE: What the &*^%? You don’t wing it with this guy. He needs time to prepare his response. You idiot, you’re fired.

The Science Reporter: Who is ultimately responsible for reporting significant findings to the public?
Disclosing my research makes little or no difference with respect to TED. My research was fully disclosed to the public overseas by Anne Astronomy News. http://annesastronomynews.com/double-stars-mysterious-connection/ The link you posted is a publication that was extend from the original because at least two papers were published after my research appeared. These publications were confirming my research conclusions. Both were high profile topics published in Nature. Nature rejected my paper based on topic interest but published those papers. Once you get beyond the money and fame, it is about ethics and honesty. The Fundamental Physics Prize was given to individuals for trying to do what I did. So, I will enter that competition as a form of documentation. I am confident I will lose but winning is not the point. My research has fundamental applications for new technologies. The engineering community is going to put that paper to through other test. I am confident it will pass and then we will talk about the reality of the Fundamental Physics Prize, and what it means to be a winner and a loser.

The Science Reporter: Who is ultimately responsible for reporting significant findings to the public?
The answers is both simple and hard. I watched the video and complexity is a powerful idea. These individuals have professorships and a university behind them. That actually does most of the work. The public doesn't really care about ideas, they want applications. Collaborating with others in the university is hard because they are all competing for limited research dollars and job security across disciplines. Collaborate with companies that are using the same ideas in applications. New applications is the hard part but once you have that, you have the money, the public and a potential product. The company of course has to be big enough for R&D or you spin off a company. Many professors do that but it's hard. The interviewer/reporter did a good job.

The Science Reporter: Who is ultimately responsible for reporting significant findings to the public?
Correction: The book is "Physics on the Fringe". When you speak the truth everyone thinks you have an axe to grind. Did Einstein have an axe to grind when he refused to accept the modern version of quantum mechanics? You are entitled to your opinion not to include science teachers as a part of the science community. College level professors are also part of the educational community. I am a trained mechanical engineer as well. The motion of binary stars have a quantum structure. This is the topic of my research, successful research, I might add. If a String Theorist reads my work, they immediately have an axe to grind. And we all know why.

The Science Reporter: Who is ultimately responsible for reporting significant findings to the public?
Yes, I am part of the science community. I am a teacher whose role is not only to support the creative minds of the future but to show them that the answers to the questions below are all "NO". We believed the answer to all those questions was "yes" before the turn of the last century and we discovered phenomena that made us think again. Einstein's creative genius lit the way. Now we are are faced with new phenomena which as not been answered by the individuals who John Horgan routinely interviews or their followers. John Horgan has never in his life interviewed a creative genius. Science reports are not investigative journalist but they are the front line for protecting the credibility of science as it is articulated to the public. Instead they appear to be simply mouth pieces for the science community and has little ability to present the story objectively. John Horgan did an interview with the author of "Science on the Fringe" and they made fun of John Carter. They put him on display as a crack pot. I really don't know what he is but they used him to degrade the work of independent researchers who do not have access to the federal funds that their tax dollars go to for research. I challenge John Horgan and any science reporter to interview me concerning my research. Of course they would refuse because they are there to sell books and papers and sensationalize science. Any story, no matter how important, if it does not fit that mold they are unavailable. Religion vs. Science. Crack Pots. Multiple Universes and dead end scientific investigations. That's their game so no wonder they think this is "The End of Science". When media budgets are cut, its just the end of a science reporter's job spent too much time making him/herself irrelevant in the world of reporting.

How do we make peace between Israel and Palestine?
Native Americans should forward their complains to the British as well. Liberians should forward their complaints to the Americans. African Americans should forward their complains to governments who benefited from the slave trade. It is easy to consider crimes complaints when some else is the victim. No ones pain as a victim should be forgotten because this is the seeds of violence. There is no forward on a circle of violence and selective issues that should never be forgotten. Everything on a circle is backwards so we must learn and address the issues of the past.

Are Nobel Prizes overrated?
The Nobel Prize has no cultural impact, to some extent the individuals who receive the Nobel Prize have some but this might be over rated if you do not consider the dynamics of that impact. The Nobel Peace Prize is given to individuals but behind each of those individuals is a society that should be rewarded for making the cultural and social changes needed for those recipients achievements to exist. Families, friends, social, educational and religious institutions that are accessible to the average individual is more worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize than those who actually receive the award. No one is self made. You can say the same thing about scientific achievements. It is easy to reward individuals but recognition comes from the community and ethical peers who acknowledge an individuals contributions. Without that, awards have no depth and we being to idolize accomplishments of individuals rather than appreciating services of the community. How many potential Nobel Prize recipients die everyday because they did not have a society to protect them and develop them?

Are Nobel Prizes overrated?
The Nobel Prize is rated based on its recipients. Is the Nobel Prize over rated with respect to a Fields Medal? These prizes are on the same level because of those who where awarded the prizes. Distinguished individuals define the prize. The great individuals including Rosalind Franklin define excellence in their field, so the Nobel Prize would have had greater prestige with her name among the recipients. A Fields Medal could have been more distinguished with Perelman and Wiles, who will go down in history as two of the greatest mathematicians of their generation. Wiles was too old to receive the award and Perelman rejected the award. Is the Nobel Prize over rated with respect to the Fundamental Physics Prize? Of course not. None of those recipients have done anything worthy of being mentioned in the same sentence as those who received the Nobel Prize. Field by field, the recipients make the prize over rated or under rated.
