Just as of this month [October 2010] I have accepted an offer on a new job, starting in November, that will allow me to have a work life like the
majority of people, and have a lot more time to spend on this project again. Needing to have one full time job and another part time job, to make ends
meet, was making it almost impossible to get much done on this project. I have not made much progress on writing a magazine version of the
Fidler-Morton Atomic Model. But on the other hand I have at least been reviewing updates/changes in the Standard Atomic model, Quark Theory and the
data from which it arises, the General and Special Theories of relativity, .... Not much has change, but more importantly the FM model still works
well within most of these base theories. Yes, there is some conflict, particularly with the interpretation of some of the data and results of the
quark model. Particularly with the fact the quark model fails on a few accounts to explain some key fundamental concepts such as gravity, negative
regions around neutrons, some of the forms of radioactivity and nuclear structure, radioactivity in general, and it still wishes simply to Create new
particles and draw upon Virtual photons & particles to account for the way the forces work without actually providing a mechanism for How the forces
work. Again reminding me of the old epicycles upon epicycles that people of centuries past tried to use to explain why they believed the bodies that
make up our solar system revolved around the earth.
This issue of not enough time has reinforced my conviction that, without a doubt, I will require a co-author for assistance, creative input, and to
expedite the process of writing a book and possibly the magazine article. I have had some feedback on possible co-authors but nothing definitive. It
would seem that even though I share some similar concepts/ideas with a few other people, whose work I have been either been directed to or discovered
on my own, it will be sometime before I'm able to form a partnership with someone.
