If you check the dates, you'll notice that I am utterly delinquent with respect to posting at this site. Unfortunately, it is because I have an administrative post - I am chairman of the faculty union at the Hebrew University. And it really takes up precious time, which otherwise, would have allowed me to write.
I didn't really wanted this job, but it so happened that among the active union committee members, I had the lamest excuse why I should not be the chairman. Now that I am, I know I should have been more resistive against the attempts to convince me! I do know now all about salaries, savings funds, company boards, even types of accounting, but I have less time to do the things I really like, such as science.
Anyway, the reason I am writing, is because I have many airport hours this month (traveling to NYC, Finnish Lapland, and Yunnan China, all in all, 12% of my time in march will be spent in the air!). I was really looking forward to the second trip as l hoped it would allow me to see yet another aurora. And indeed, it did.
So, I am now writing a few posts which should mature soon. In particular, I will write about results which recently appeared about how I use the oceans as a "calorimeter", to quantify the solar radiative forcing, about the auroras I have seen in Lapland, and a few other stuff as well.
