Greetings, david! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

I have heard a few performances of the Concerto in F, but the one that truly works for me is an OLD one: Kostelanetz conducting, Andre Previn at the keyboard.

The two of them make the whole thing WORK ... and the cakewalk in the 2nd movement? It sure as hell STRUTS!

I like the cakewalk as a style of music. George Gershwin wrote one into the second movement of his Concerto in F, and I really enjoy the way it STRUTS.

Did you find it okay? Was it all that you were hoping for?

Oh that - be warned, the youtube comment system is all messed up. even I've lost track of who is replying to who.

Try clicking "see all" and "see all" again.


Scroll to the bottom, and read from the bottom up, however, replies to a comment, counter intuitively hang underneath comments so you start reading down the page again.

We're an under-represented bunch here: The Brits, it's true.

It is ironic, that I so often spend so long on the front page just reading the forums and going to the groups, that I didn't find your message to me on my page until just now! :P

So pleased you are enjoying the Academic Earth website. I was listening last night to a lecture about the Doppler Effect.

It's OK. I wasn't worried.

No worries, David. Like I said, I like your inquisitive spirit. Curiosity is one of the best parts of life. It can be frustrating to bump up against orthodoxy, no matter where you find it, but at least in science, orthodoxy is usually backed up by a lot of evidence and research. Not always, but usually, and over time, theories either firm up or are discarded (or more likely, modified). For something like evolution, there are still plenty of questions that haven't been answered, but the broad strokes seem to be pretty solid. The Yucatan impact seems to have solid evidence behind it from a variety of angles, so I think it's highly likely that it's the right explanation. That said, we don't have videotape of the event, so I'm sure there are details we'll never know.

As to attention deficit, I don't struggle with that (at least, I don't think so), but one nice thing about Wikipedia is that you can kind of jump around in it and pick things up in bite-size chunks. I rarely read an entire Wikipedia entry; I usually skip around from section to section, looking for answers to specific questions. Give it a shot. Nobody's asking you to write a book report. :)

Nice to meet you David.

I love reading the discusions you've added so far. I don't have much of a science background, yet at the same time a great deal of passion for it. When I ask questions, it's mostly out of curiosity. Thanks for your replies.

Thanks for the nice comment. I feel really fortunate to have been able to go back to college and pursue something I love.

David, the links are supposed to go in the discussion, not on individuals' pages--and they should be links, not copypasta from the source page.

There is a button in all post interfaces on A|N, next to the S, that allows you to "Add Hyperlink". Make use of it--and for more than just goatse.

No worries, David! Thanks for reading!

By all means! It sounds interesting.

Hi, I'm not sure I can see all the comments on the question. It's quite clear that the evolution of the brain was one of the most important aspects of homo sapient being homo sapient. The focus on the bones is quite natural for now I think because that's all there's left (and the most precious part of it - DNA)! And scientists like to touch and observe, while evolution of the brain takes a bit more speculation.

Hello and welcome. Specialists in the "Origins" group will be interested to hear from you on astronomical matters
