47) Applying Neo-Newtonian Mechanics, inertial mass and inertial force to unsolved physics problems
Dennis Allen extends classical mechanics to address some unexplained phenomena such as the exploding wire problem and why some examples of rotating mass lose weight.
46) Three Perspectives On Different Versions of the Lorentz Transformations (LTs)
Nick Percival starts with some general points about Lorentz's original LTs versus Einstein's observer centric LTs. Then Harry Ricker goes into much greater detail on those two versions of the LTs and adds some brief comments on the Selleri Transformations. Harvey Scribner discusses the lesser know and quite different Ed Dowdye Extinction Shift Principle model and derivation of the LTs.
45) Ian Cowan on the Non Constancy of the Speed of Light and Maxwell vs Hertz
Ian Cowan reviews the empirical data on the constancy vs non-constancy of the speed of light. Ian also compares Maxwell's EM equations to Hertz's equations and to using the total derivative approach of fluid mechanics. (Note the video starts with some very brief, spontaneous, pre-presentation comments on Climate Change.)
44) Roger Anderton on how pro-Special Relativity advocates respond when flaws are revealed.
Roger presents 3 issues on Special Relativity (SR) and SR's revised version of Lorentz's original Transformations. These 3 issues are by no means the most serious flaws in SR, but they illustrate the lack of communication and consistency between the theoreticians, the experimenters and the teachers (and text books). Most revealing is how pro-SR advocates respond when flaws are revealed. One common reaction is "Moving the Goal Posts". Roger's presentation is followed by a group discussion which basically confirms and expands on Roger's thesis.
43) Harry Ricker Discusses Herbert Dingle's Criticisms of Special Relativity
Harry shows how Einstein's interpretation of the Relativity Principle as requiring symmetric physics effects led to Special Relativity's problems & paradoxes & contradictions that were pointed out by Dingle, and many other physicists, and never correctly rebutted by relativists. In fact, the relativists' rebuttals have ironically supported Dingle's assertions. (Note: Harry correctly describes how Einstein's intepretation of the Relativity Principle must led to concluding that all inertial clocks must have the same proper time accumulation rate. So when Harry says that Einstein came to the "wrong conclusion" that a moving clock will run slow, some viewers, especially fans of Special Relativity, may then erroneously dismiss the whole presentation as they know that moving (atomic) clocks run slow, whereas Harry's and Dingle's point is that, within the context of Special Relativity (e.g., the symmetric time dilation equation), slowed clocks is incorrect as that requires an asymmetric equation.
42) A Critical Thinking Look at Global Warming & Climate Change
Harry Ricker reviews the assumptions and constructs of GW & CC. In addition, he discusses many summary sources and reports on the data for what are currently taken as evidence for GW & CC. Attendees respond.
41) New Thermodynamics - Part 3 - Climate Change
Kent Mayhew applies what he discussed in New Thermodynamics Part 1 & 2 (videos # 37 & 38) to Climate Change. Kent shows that the original, alleged cause of Global Warming could NOT have been due to human produced CO2 (e.g., from fossil fuel usage). Kent discusses the infrared spectrometry blunder and shows that a much more accurate factor of human-caused-warming is the amount of energy lost from all human endeavors. At the end, in the discussion period, there was general agreement on Kent''s new science including the dismissal of CO2 as cause of GW, however, some viewers questioned whether "the amount of energy lost from all human endeavors" was sufficient to explain Global Warming.
40) Three 3-step arguments showing that interpreting SRT as describing physical reality is invalid
Nick of Time leads a multi-person discussion of the three 3-step videos referenced in the title. The 3 very short 3-step videos are also shown in Nick of Time's videos number 21, 22 & 23, without any commentary, in this series. In this video, the three 3-step arguments are re-shown to an audience of physicists who have studied this topic in depth for many decades. While no flaws in the 3-step arguments were articulated, it was pointed out by all that other QED arguments, backed by tons of empirical data, proving the title thesis have been around for decades and, in addition, some of these older arguments focus on more fundamental flaws in SRT. Nick of Time fully agreed with these observations, but noted that the three 3-step arguments were developed to have impact as they were so simple and backed by well known empirical data that the usual relativist replies did not apply except for dismissing the arguments out of hand. Further discussion by all noted that , there has been no serious attention paid to "anti-SRT" arguments or to the empirical data by academia.
39) Bill Lucas discusses the evolution of the scientific method.
Bill Lucas is one of the most knowledgeable and creative physicists inside or outside of academia. Here he discusses the scientific method and how it declined in modern physics. Bill also discusses Poincare's Meta Theory and some breakthroughs in physics that will dramatically improve energy production.
