Thank you for your inspiring and sensible account of doing theoretical physics Professor Chu. I have long intended to actively pursue the inner-details of my own theories, but until recently I lacked the coherence of mind to do so; it was a conclusion similar to the collective "of ones" you expressed here that allowed me to finally "move beyond collective cluelessness". It takes discipline for action(s) in time to become skill, and one must make repeated one(s) into those with spaces: for self. I'll persevere and see what happens;)

About once a month at Sigma Xi headquarters, we liven up the lunch hour with an American Scientist Pizza Lunch talk. In these informal lectures, scientists describe new research to nonscientists. The series is light on jargon but heavy on solid science. Each Pizza Lunch offers an in-depth look at its subject, whether it's bedbugs or the smart grid.

JSTOR, the online academic archive, now contains complete back issues of American Scientist from its inception in 1913 (as Sigma Xi Quarterly) through 2005.
The table of contents for each issue is freely available to all users; those with institutional access can read each complete issue.
