In a way, Magic Gypsy Chords and Rhythms is 25 years in the making. That’s how long Raughi and Leo have been studying the history, culture and music of the gypsies. They’ve traveled the world to meet and study with the gypsy masters, documenting their specific chord voicings, fingerpicking patterns, techniques and subtle nuances of the style. For this curriculum, Raughi and Leo selected 140 of their favorite chord voicings and 35 of the most versatile picking and rhythmic patterns for you to learn, reference and call on whether you intend to play modern interpretations, compose original music or perform traditional gypsy Flamenco — either way, this resource is priceless. The material is presented in an interactive format designed to get you up and running quickly without having to struggle through boring exercises or tedious theory; you will play your way through the course and you can do so on any electric or acoustic guitar you own.
Astrophysics, Clocks and Fundamental Constants (Lecture Notes in Physics) by Savely G. Karshenboim

The question of a possible temporal variation of the fundamental constants was raised by Paul Dirac in his "large number hypothesis" in 1937. Today it appears in the context of the search for a unified theory of the fundamental interactions. It touches both fundamental and applied physics, as the postulate of the unalterability of the constants is the foundation for modern metrology.

It was an attempt to solve one of the most pressing problems of the age: how to determine a ship's longitude (east-west position) at sea.
