|Let's say you got a B in an exam and felt you deserved an A and wished to see if you could "consult" with your professor to see if you could 'turn' it. Wot do you think your odds would be with Professor "Keith", above?|
Out of a population of 7 billion people on Earth, there are roughly 6 million Scientists, roughly one out of a thousand people. Since Americans are 4-5 % of the human race, do I have to do the math or can you do that for yourself? Actually the percentage of American scientists is far more in my opinion, twice more than statistics would allow I think. Thoughts?
Whatever ... here's one of them, a man of accomplishment
Keith M. Ashman, (born 13 December 1963) is a British theoretical astrophysicist, educated at St. Albans School, Hertfordshire, and Queen Mary College (Bachelor's), University of London (PhD). He was a professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and has worked as a professor at the University of Kansas, and Baker University. He is the coauthor with Stephen E. Zepf of Globular Cluster Systems and was one of three scientists (the others being François Schweizer and Steve Zepf) to suggest the formation of young globular clusters by colliding spirals might explain the large number of globular clusters present in elliptical galaxies. This was later supported by the findings of the Hubble Space Telescope. He is also the author of "After the Science Wars," a text on the philosophy of science, and is a bass guitarist in the Lawrence, KS based band "The Hefners."
December 2007 Ashman left his tenureship at University of Missouri-Kansas City in order to pursue a career as a professional poker player.
