Ron White memory training expert has created a program on Einstein titled ‘How to Develop The Mind of Einstein’. As a student of the life of Einstein Ron White recommends this article with more insight on the genius:
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 8, 2005
One century after Albert Einstein published three of his landmark theories Ã‚ including E=mc2, which established the equivalence between mass and energy, the American Friends of The Hebrew University (AFHU) will celebrate Einstein’s enormous legacy at a conference on March 13 at the Skirball Cultural Center. Nobel Prize winner Professor David J. Gross, a graduate of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, will appear for the first time in Southern California since winning the award together with Dr. Harold E. Varmus and five colleagues as they join in exploring Einstein’s extraordinary influence on 20th century science and medicine. This day of discovery, geared towards scholars and laymen alike, will consider how Einstein’s theories have shaped and changed our lives.
The conference will also celebrate Einstein’s close relationship with The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Einstein, a founding director of the university, bequeathed his intellectual property, including his library and personal papers, to the university. Today, these papers make up the Albert Einstein Archives at the Jewish National and University Library consisting of more than 50,000 items from and about Einstein.
As one of the founding fathers of the Hebrew University, Albert Einstein is strongly interwoven with the history of the university and we are proud to mark his contribution to one of Israel’s leading institutions of higher learning, says Dr. Bill Isacoff, conference chairman. The conference will bring together some of the greatest minds in science and medicine to explore his enormous impact on the world and capture the essence of the man whom Time Magazine called, Man of the Century.
In addition to Professor Gross and Dr. Varmus, conference participants include Professor (and President Emeritus) Hanoch Gutfreund and Professor Tsvi Piran from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Edward Wright, Professor and Vice Chair of the Astronomy Department at UCLA and Professors Terrence Sejnowski and Ronald M. Evans of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. Dr. Varmus will deliver the keynote address, How Physics has Influenced Biology and Medicine at a luncheon following the conference.
