Folks, when you get to my age, you have to start winding down your life.

My web site http://www.bibhasde.com is coming up for renewal of its hosting. So this is a juncture. I have decided to not close it down, but to take it to an inexpensive host on a limited storage plan.

This means that I will have to severely curtail the content. So, many things will disappear. If anyone is interested in rereading, copying or downloading anything from that site, now is the time to do so.

I have now two regular books out there on the scientific content, and they will stand. There may be another book in me yet.

WordPress is free. So my activities will continue here for now.

Great cases of the Scotl… er… Scamland Yard

March 8, 2018

The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes and Great cases of the Scotland Yard contain some of the classic mysteries. The following books contain their space age counterpart.

The formidable classic villains like Professor Moriarty or Dr. Fu Manchu have got nothing on our space age villains! Be afraid – very afraid!

Folks, there are now available two free public education eBooks (Not really! They are just pdf files.). These are essentially organized collections of graphics from this blog site. Clicking on the image will download the book.

A Nobel Masterclass

March 4, 2018


In the legendary Penzias-Wilson discovery paper, no information was given about the polarization state of their antenna feed. From what information was available, I concluded that they were receiving linear polarization.

The cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) is unpolarized (randomly polarized.)

If Penzias and Wilson wanted to receive the total power from CMB, their antenna would have to have received this power in two orthogonal linear polarizations, which powers they would then have to add. If they had gone through this elaborate instrumental process, they surely had to describe this in the paper as the most crucial information pertaining to the discovery.

My inference: Penzias and Wilson were receiving unpolarized radiation with a linearly polarized antenna. They did not report this or any adjustments for this polarization mismatch.

The ek-sellent scam that played well in Stockholm

March 3, 2018


Folks, see the following graphic and then reflect on the ludicrous circus that has been going on in the name of science for many decades now. The very same scientific establishment that bought this crap lock, stock and barrel now stands solidly behind LIGO. Both Kip Thorne and Rainer Weiss were disciples of Robert Dicke. The full spectrum in the figure below was clinched by the COBE satellite. That was an outright fraud led by Rainer Weiss.
