The current Right Wing president of France, a country in Europe. Chirac appears to be one of the few leaders that realises he doesn't have to bark to the yankee's tune. If only there were more like him.
An electron is not a particle or a wave a such, but actually a region of space surrounding a nucleus which "has a property of 'electron-ness'". These regions of space are fixed positions around the nucleus called orbitals. There are several types of orbital, each with its own shape and corresponding bond-type. 'Electron-ness' is the quality which allows electrons to exist in a state which is defined as electrons. Circular logic? You bet!
The electron leapt up two shells, and fell again, emitting beautiful red flashes and flickers. If it had been a person, it would have wept with joy at the sight. But it was just an electron.
