For information on ... me: June 1, 2016 --> now

  • I'm done! Retired June 1, 2016. :-)
  • CHEM 1202 GenCHEM II (lec) and CHEM 3242 PhysCHEM II (lec): Those of you in my last classes (spring '16) may remember the taped lectures (GoogleDrive) that seemed to be somewhat useful to some of you. Those have now been dis-mounted. However, if you have a need to listen again just send me an e-mail and I'll re-share with you for listening or down-load.
  • More later.
The complete schedule of upcoming courses for FDU's Florham Campus (at Madison) is available at WebAdvisor and at Coursefinder.

To the Florham Campus ...
in Madison, NJ

from N, S, E, or W, click here. NJ Transit provides MidTOWN Direct rail service between Madison Station and Penn Station, NY. Times here are current as of Dec. 17, 2015. MTA Subways from Penn Station can get you uptown to the theatre district very easily. Information about the entire NYC Transit system, including maps, stations, schedules, and fares, is here.

For data about the elements...

visit the WebElements (see button below) site. This is Mark Winter's (Univ. of Sheffield) award-winning on-line Periodic Table of the Elements and is particularly useful because it is one of the few sources of the CORRECT version of the modern Periodic Table. For links to other useful chemistry sites, click here!

Greens ...

might be interested in the vast amount of legitimate science surrounding the "global warming" or "cooling" or "climate change" or (the latest): "disruption" doomsday debate. The science comes out uniformly against any likely human influence and especially against any adverse effect of carbon dioxide. Here are a few links that point to major assemblies of data and scientific papers regarding AGW. First are over 1350 (and growing) peer-reviewed papers at and the massive NIPCC report. If you want to do your own research almost all raw climatic data is here. Steven McIntyre's award-winning blog, ClimateAudit, since before ClimateGates I, II, and III, has become the principal center for detailed analysis of AGW claims. Finally, the famous "WattsUpWithThat" of Anthony Watts, which is at the center of the debate and a major source of information.
