Chris Reich, founder of TeachU and BizPhyZ, is pleased to announce a new tool using physics to approach business problems. San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2014 Recognizing a need to stimulate morale and business thinking, Chris Reich of BizPhyZ is pleased to announce a summer workshop series using physics as a vehicle. "When people hear 'physics' they panic," writes Reich, "but I give them the fun stuff without the math. Once we get started they always want more....

Never Say Never In The Nano-world

University of Vienna This news release is available in German. Objects with sizes in the nanometer range, such as the molecular building blocks of living cells or nanotechnological devices, are continuously exposed to random collisions with surrounding molecules. In such fluctuating environments the fundamental laws of thermodynamics that govern our macroscopic world need to be rewritten. An international team of researchers from Barcelona, Zurich and Vienna found that a nanoparticle...

First Thin Films Of Spin Ice Reveal Surprising Secrets
2014-03-12 10:52:39

University College London Thin films of spin ice have been shown to demonstrate surprising properties which could help in the development of applications of magnetricity, the magnetic equivalent of electricity. Published today in Nature Communications, a team of researchers based at the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN), in collaboration with scientists from Oxford and Cambridge, found that, against expectations, the Third Law of Thermodynamics could be restored in thin films of...

Chris Reich, creator of BizPhyZ™, The Physics of Business™, develops presentation on entropy. San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2014 Chris Reich, the developer of the physics of business™ known as BizPhyZ™, has completed work on a new presentation to teach business people about the ravages of entropy. Entropy essentially means disorder. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that entropy always increases. In other words, disorder is always increasing unless work is put in to...

Global energy inequality lessens, but for how long? The 18th century writer Adam Smith provided a workable metaphor for the way society utilizes resources. In his book "The Wealth of Nations," he argued that even as individuals strive, through personal industry, to maximize their advantage in life, they inadvertently contribute---as if under the influence of a "hidden hand"---to an aggregate disposition of wealth. Well, if Smith were a physicist and alive in the 21st century he might be...

Chris Reich, developer of BizPhyZ, the physics of business, gave a rousing opening address at the annual BBTC Conference in Las Vegas and was asked to continue with another two hour presentation following day one. Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 29, 2013 Chris Reich, developer of BizPhyZ, which uses physics as a metaphor to present better business thinking impressed the crowd at the annual BBTC Conference in Las Vegas earlier in November. The attendees of the conference received the...

Researchers at Aalto University and the University of Tokyo have succeeded for the first time in experimentally measuring a probability distribution for entropy production of electrons. Entropy production means an increase in disorder when electrons are moved individually between two microscopic conductors of differing temperatures. The researchers also showed that a connection prevails between two definitions of entropy that have been used. The result is significant for the design of...

Chris Reich of BizPhyZ writes about the corrosive effect of entropy on business. Etna, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2013 Chris Reich, developer of BizPhyZ, the science of business and physics, has released a very interesting piece on the effect of entropy on business. Reich published the blog post on June 28th on the BizPhyZ website. The post, using physics as a metaphor for business focuses on the ravages of entropy on the successful business. Reich writes, "When we think we've got...

Chris Reich is using fascinating laws of physics to do something remarkable in business. Etna, CA (PRWEB) June 14, 2013 Chris Reich is proud to announce the development of BizPhyZ, the science of business colliding with physics. This fresh new way to look at business fuses business and physics in a super collider of ideas. BizPhyZ, a term coined by Chris Reich, noted business development consultant and speaker, is a result of fifteen years of research. Reich began to think about a...

A forthcoming article in The Quarterly Review of Biology provides the basis for an argument against using the Gibbs free energy equation to accurately determine the thermodynamics of microbial growth. Microbial growth is a biological process that has been previously treated as a chemical reaction operating in accord with the Gibbs free energy equation, developed during the 1870s. The heat of yeast growth was the first to be measured by direct calorimetry, in 1856. However, the full...
