Hands-up – we’re late. That’s the problem with trying to squeeze so much engaging content into one magazine with an incredibly small editorial and print team over the Christmas break (happy new year, btw) (Can I say “btw”? Is that allowed?).
The only redeeming feature of our lateness is the fact that I’m writing this editorial on January 25th, which, if you’re from the same parts as I am, means only one thing. It’s Burns Night. Not the third-degree kind (that would be a silly celebration), no. Rabbie Burns. Scotland’s national poet. C’mon – science isn’t THAT far removed from the arts, is it?
So, whilst I contemplate addressing my haggis this evening (steady), I’ve decided to present this month’s editorial in a form that would make Rabbie proud. Probably.
An Ode tae MultiPhysics (and aww that)
They’ve aw got ways and means these days,
Tae dae thir work in different ways
Wi’ve got an Intro tae Multiphase
Page fifty four
So drag yersel’ fae yer malaise
And shut yer door.
You’ll read and read and read it aw!
Some articles will leave ye raw,
Yi’ll huv tae read they wans again
The authors words inside yir brain
Or git a haun.
Bringin’ it aw thegither’s the theme
As wide a scope ah’ve nivir seen
Thurs everyhin that’s ever been
Inside the mag
Fae aerospace tae the nuclear scene.
An this year’s fu’ e stuff fae us
Regional Conferences gie us a buzz
Tae see whit everywan else does

Git tae nafems.org/2018
And noo ma rhyming scheme’s awa’
2018’s a massive year
An we hope ye’ll want tae join us here
Oor conferences gie loads a cheer
Especially in the bar
So git involved an huv nae fear
Mine’s a single malt.
And for those of you who may need an English translation...... here you go
