For those who participated in the discussions in physics, this article might be interesting to you. We talked extensively about the costs of scientific endeavours and whether the benefit was worth the investment. Soaring costs of raw materials and economic difficulties are bringing this issue to the forefront on many projects.
Reminder: Bring Back Your Texts!
This is just a reminder to all students that they are expected to bring back their textbooks and their midterms to each examination. Any damaged or missing books will be charged to your book deposit.

**NOTE: The other day I told some of you that sin x approached 1 in a question. I misinterpreted the x as being when x=o but in reflection, x is equal to the angle of rotation thus when there is 0 rotation, sin x is also equal to 0. Please take note of this correction (sin x=0, not 1). Sorry if I confused anyone.
