## Farewell’s QUATRAIN

hashing,rushing, almost shivering
bustle and hustle, and intend to mumble
dashing, hushing, sometimes blushing
hurtle and mingle; c1 was not for idle

## ALL ALONG THE WATCH TOWER LYRICS

“There must be some way out of here” said the joker to the thief
“There’s too much confusion”, I can’t get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.

“No reason to get excited”, the thief he kindly spoke
“There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late”.

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

## BOB DYLAN, STILL A ROLLING STONE?

BOB DYLAN, STILL A ROLLING STONE?

Why do we need Rolling Stones? In a time of economical (and general) uncertainty, when countries are in Dire Straits, songwriters and important figures such as BOB DYLAN,are necessary. Not only was he able to turn music compositions into anthems but gathered a whole generation, for a same purpose.

Like the Rolling Stone that never stops, Bob has always kept looking for the new chord, the sympathetic chord   that he is still striking, at least  to all of us who got to knew him from the beginning.
The poet had become a Hurricane, having shifted the tune to electric, and composed hymns,many of them featured by several artists while he has been observing All along the Watchtower.
In these Modern Times, we considerably doubt that Bob is anywhere else but Home,nor pointing in the opposite Direction, now that 71 years have passed since he was born.

Likely, a second coming is not needed, although there are rights that absolutely can not be compromised. Then, let’s knock on Heavens Doors waiting for a character so determinating as Dylann, who might rejoin society for the struggle for a better world. An icon, who either entertains or allows you to reflect deeper on what the global situation is.
Is there any relief for that mission? I clearly distrust on them, so…How does it feel?

## Potato chips and mathematics

If your math teacher told you that mathematics is everywhere, believe him.   Almost all the things that we see around (even things that we do not see)  are  related to mathematics  – even potato chips. Yes, even potato chips.

Some potato chips, particularly Pringles (I hope they give me 500 bucks for this), are in a shape of a saddle.  In mathematics a saddle-shaped graph is called a hyperbolic paraboloid (see left figure).

A hyperbolic paraboloid quadratic and doubly ruled surface given by the Cartesian equation $z = \displaystyle\frac{y^2}{b^2} - \frac{x^2}{a^2}$.  Now, whatever that means will be discussed when you take your analytic geometry course.

For now, let’s be happy that we  know that even potato chips can be modeled by graphs
