July 2014 stories at the main FCP site

The July stories at FCP: (1) The physics of surfing and avoiding a wipeout. (2) Take off your glasses or contacts and look through a small opening in order to read clearly. (3) Pole climbing, both the standard way used to repair overhead lines and a novel way to get up a palm tree. (4) Pub trick --- set a matchstick on fire and watch it leap upwards.

Hi, totally unrelated, but were you aware that your work on floating water droplets (Sci Am 1978) has inspired a de Broglie-type review of quantum mechanics where pilot waves enable quantum phenomena to be observed on floating oil droplets?
If not, sorry to have wasted your time.
Best wishes,
Richard Ellis

Thanks. I would like to see the review. If you have a reference handy, please posted the citation. Otherwise, I'll use a search engine.
