characteristics of photon Reply

SO mass-energy equivalence is a special theory of realtivity effect and gravitational tensor-coupling has got nothing to do with it. A photon gets it’s energy-momentum (( energy/momentum)) from QED…

mdashf‘s insight:

When it comes to mass and energy, particles with and without mass then exactly what you should be careful about. The Uncertainty relations will produce additional "not so talked about relations of uncertainty" !! A very fundamental, known but not all sides known aspect of Physics which I have discovered after many different problems were related and caused me to think about the problem for more than half a year and gradually shed qualitative as well as quantitative light into the matter, plus the mathematical form helped me "solve" the OPERA anomaly from fundamental Physics POV. This article answers some of these " care to be taken " in Photon-matters at a good detail. {1. will be well read only if conncted with some more articles which are nonetheless to be found on the same website but not the same sequence 2. Only one line needs to be corrected: perhaps the talking about rest-mass or rest-frame of photon, this I have corrected and devoted one full article recently within last 1 week, but you are encouraged to find that article then matters will be far more clear, plus I am thinking to write a few more articles in this context pretty soon}

2013 AAUP Faculty Salary Survey: Sortable Table Reply

See on Scoop.itScience Communication from mdashf

Annual pay averages $84,000; the increase just matches inflation. Not all of the numbers are heartening, though.

mdashf‘s insight:

Columbia University pays its Professors the most (more than 200 K per anum) and its the only university in the top 60 which pays its instructors a great deal of respect, even more than Assistant Professors in terms of salary an instructor draws more than Assistant Professor’s and only at Columbia University. No other University including Chicago, Harvard, Cal-Tech. Princeton have this privilege towards their instructors, they pay about 50-75% what they pay to their Asst Professors. caltech; instructor Asst Professor disparity is even more than 50% !!

mdashf‘s insight:

100 $ per piece is not on the lower bottom of a compensation although if someone pays you 500 $ per piece that would be awesome, and its only you who has proved what to earn. If one devotes full time writing and gets 5 articles a day written one can in 20 working days a month gets 10000 $ which is an excellent compensation for any one writing and earning simply from writing. I do not disagree how many hours go into writing and how difficult certain research can become. I simply think of how sustainably one can write. The more one is writing the more one owuld be at wit’s end.
