Rio Alum Kevin Ferguson in Olympic Trials

Kevin Ferguson graduated from Rio Americano in 2008. He took Physics 1 in 2005-06. He ended the year as a recipient of the highly-coveted PhyzMaster Award.

Turns out, he's got a bit of a thing for swimming. He was on my radio this morning via Capital Public Radio's Insight with Beth Ruyack. The following link will go live sometime after the program has aired. (Kevin's segment is the second of the program, following the discussion of Supreme Court issues).

Kevin's UCSB story

It was great fun listening to him; he sounds so serious and grown up now. Anyway, well done, Kevin. Your fans at Rio are cheering you on!

Here's one from the PhyzPhoto archives:

The White House and the National Science Foundation named me as a recipient of the 2011 Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching.

I've created a separate blog to tell the story.

I've moved my website to RageSW's server. It was every bit as much fun as it sounds like.

Today I reconfigured my domain name's forwarding service so that when you type "" in as a URL, you'll be gently escorted to "" It took about ten seconds to make that switch.

But my Google-ownership of "phyz" will likely suffer. I'll do my best to buck up and be strong through it all.
