Unicycling Inspires Chemist, More And Better Chocolate | June 17, 2013 Issue - Vol. 91 Issue 24 [+]Enlarge Champ: Max Schulze, unicycler and chemist. Credit: Minesh Bacrania It was because of a Father’s Day gift that 21-year-old Max Schulze, a rising senior honors student in chemistry at Colorado School of Mines, became a world champion unicyclist. Eight years ago, Max and his older brother bought their dad a unicycle for the holiday, which was observed this year on Sunday, June 16, in the U.S. and many other countries. Dad had told his sons that “it would be cool to have a unicycle,” after they all watched a champion unicyclist perform in a video.
chemguide: CIE A level chemistry support Cambridge University Press (CUP) have just published (January 2011) a brand new book covering the whole of the CIE A level chemistry course, including the Applications section. The book includes a useful CD-ROM which has answers to all the end-of-chapter questions amongst other things. The CD-ROM is usable by both PCs and Macs. The book has been written by a completely different set of authors from the old book and the Applications Support Booklet - and it shows! The new book is written in an extremely student-friendly way. CIE examiners were involved during the production of the book, and so the contents should closely match the current syllabus.
