People in the U.S. looked up the sky and enjoyed a total eclipse of the sun. Two Mondays ago was a historical moment since 1918 that solar eclipse could be seen across U.S. Diamond Ring was so moving. It was extraordinary.  The longest time which they could watch the sun blocked by the moon was about two minutes and 40 seconds. President Trump and first lady Melania Trump also participate in this cosmic event from a White House balcony. It happened on a big day of the unifying America for the first time after Trump had become a president. When Trump looked up the sun, one of the White House aides standing beneath the Blue Balcony shouted ” Don’t watch”. Actually it is the most predictable risk of the action from which Trump had tried to gaze without glasses. Shortly before the eclipse reached in Washington, Trump waved at the crowds and responded to a reporter’s question  ”How is the view?” with his thumbs up. It was a short but precious time to unite the U.S. which had been suffering from the disintegration of the country.

Dearest creature in creation.

Study English pronunciation.

I will teach you in my verse.

Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.

I will keep you, Suzy, busy.

Make your head with heat grow dizzy.

Tear in eye, your dress will tear.

So shall I!  Oh hear my prayer.

At the beginning of this summer many important persons went to the heaven. Stanford mathematics Professor Maryam Mirzakhani, the first and to-date

only female winner of the Fields Medal since its inspection 1936, died of breath cancer at age 40 on July 14th  at Stanford Hospital. The Fields Medal is the most prestigious award in mathematics, often equated in statue with the Nobel Prize.

The award committee cited her work in “the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces”, The earth we live is not a plane but a sphere of the surface of the ball. To see the whole earth we use the atlas. The atlas consists of infinite many charts. Each planar chart represents local part of the earth. Every other surfaces can be seen in this way. These idea originated to Riemann. Maryam took over the Riemann’s idea for doing her mathematics.

She was born in Tehran, Iran. She had been a true genius . 18 years Maryam became the first female and the first Iranian student achieving a perfect score in the 1955 international Math Olympiad. After she had obtained her BSc from university in Tehran , she went to the United States for graduate work, earning her PhD in 2004 from Harvard . Mirzakhani was a research fellow of the Clay Mathematics Institute and a professor at Princeton University. In 2008 she became a professor at Standard university. She expressed gratitude to the supporters in her last post of the facebook, and affirmed “ much more time I  do mathematics, happier I am. Whom Gods love die young.  She is also loved by Gods.

On June 12 leaders from Group Seven countries gathered in Italy and reached consensus on fighting protectionism, but they could not find it in climate change. All but Trump reaffirmed a commitment to swiftly implement the 2015 Paris agreement which is an international scheme for global warming prevention. A week later President Donald Trump has announced that the US is withdrawing from the Paris agreement. Trump is New Yorker but said as a parody: I was born in Pittsburgh not Paris. Untill now we have believed the joint statement that people on earth have to try to limit the amount of greenhouse gasses emission for keeping global temperature below 2.0 C degrees above pre-industrial times and avoid absorbing trees, soil by ocean. The reason for Trump to push back again was from economic view point, not from scientific evidence. Paris accord includes

a contract that rich countries help poor countries by providing climate finance to adapt to climate change and switch renewable energy. He is thinking the expense promised by Obama government that the US must pay is unfair compared to other six countries. He also insists the energy shift will bring the terribly loss of employments in the US industry , particularly the one depending on the fossil fuel like in Pittsburgh.

Give up the fantasy that can control the planet from the notion that human beings are above the nature.
