Honour & Glory – 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup

This time we had a close race, at least between the top three players, until the very last match. Obviously, I am very pleased with the turnout, so congratulations go to .. haha .. myself and Spain for winning the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup ;)

Also congratulations to Teresa and Bernd who manage to secure second and third place in the same household and with a significant lead over the forth place.

The trophies depicted above will soon find their way to all winners.

You can find all the stats and standings here (also a scoreboard, if you prefer) and also the football all-time stats have been updated.

Thanks to everyone for taking part and see you next time …

Iceland 2023

A little roadtrip and picture diary of our Iceland trip in August 2023.
Until and including Egilsstaðir we drove a Dacia Duster, which then had to be changed to a Toyota Landcruiser due to issues with the first car.

Some more details and captions might follow at some point .. otherwise just ask me ;)

København

This week, I have the pleasure of enjoying Copenhagen once again after quite some time.

Following an invitation of the Munich Quantum Valley (MQV) by Invest in Denmark and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, I am joining a delegation to visit the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI) in addition to visiting the IQT Nordics conference.

This also makes up for a great opportunity to see my/our old home and university, refresh old memories and to see all the many changes the city has seen since we left back in 2014.

Seasonal subtenants – blue tits on the balcony

Today the last two blue tit youngsters left the birdhouse on our balcony.

After a somewhat depressing first attempt last year, with all eight youngsters dying, this time around the parent(s) managed to get at least two of initially eight youngsters till the end.
Today at around 8am and 11am they finally left our balcony house their parents have been setting up since the very end of March.

For those of you interested, there’s a more time-lapse and motion-detection clips in a YouTube playlist.

IPPOG Meeting in Sofia

This week I had the pleasure to have been invited to the 25th IPPOG Meeting in Sofia, in fact to talk about Munich Quantum Valley and quantum-computing in general in a quantum-computing panel discussion.

It was a pleasure to reconnect to my former colleagues and discuss what is my new job now with them.
Besides that, Netzwerk Teilchenwelt also presented the ALICE LEGO project I cohosted recently and the Particle Twister game I codeveloped :)
