PHYSICSPhysics
(fromGreek 
υσική (
πιστήμη), i.e. "knowledge, science of nature", from υύσις,
 physis
,i.e. "nature"
)is a part of natural philosophyand anatural sciencethat involves the study of matter 
 and itsmotionthrough space and time, along with related concepts such as energyandforce.
 More broadly, it is the general analysis of nature,conducted in order to understand how theuniverse behaves.
 Physics is one of the oldestacademic disciplines,perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy.
 Over the last two millennia, physics was a part of natural philosophy along withchemistry,certain branches of mathematics,andbiology,but during theScientific Revolutionin the 17th century, thenatural sciencesemerged as unique research programs in their own right.
 Physics intersects with manyinterdisciplinaryareas of research, such asbiophysicsandquantum chemistry,and the boundaries of physics are notrigidly defined.New ideas in physics often explain the fundamental mechanisms of other sciences, while opening new avenues of researchin areas such as mathematics and philosophy.Physics also makes significant contributions through advances in newtechnologiesthat arisefrom theoretical breakthroughs. For example, advances in the understanding of electromagnetismor nuclear physicsled directly to the development of new products which have dramaticallytransformed modern-day society, such astelevision,computers,domestic appliances,andnuclear  weapons;advances inthermodynamicsled to the development of industrialization;and advances inmechanicsinspired the development of calculus.

FlashnotesRemember the days of doodling on the side of your spiral notebook while you tried to takecopious notes from your boring biology teacher? Would you be more motivated if you knew thatyour notes would not only give you an edge on the exam, but could also earn you a bit of cash?Flashnotes allows students to upload their lecture notes and sell them to other students who needmore help or resources. The rating system allows the best note takers to get more business andthe general pool of knowledge expands as students continue to share their work with one another.

LoreThe new startup is using a Facebook type platform- riding the wave of what works- and tailoringit for education. This social network allows professors and students to communicate, follow oneanother, and discuss class work and lectures.In addition to the social aspect, it allows for document uploads, calendar sharing, and a grade book option. So why is this
 better than Facebook? Simply put, social networks aren’t always the
