"When I announced to them this morning most of them broke down and sobbed," -Pricipal Larry Urry.
Panel members included Priyamvada Natarajan, Corinne Moss-Racusin, Rana Dajani and Megan Urry (left to right).

In science:

A flurry of modelling followed, confirming the likely presence of a thick hydrogen layer (Driebe et al. 1998, 1999), and adding complications, such as the duration of the semi-detached phase in which the companion is becoming a white dwarf (Sarna, Antipova, & Muslimov 1998).
Optical studies of companions to millisecond pulsars
However, it is important to remember that even the SDSS will not be free from selection effects (Shields; Brandt; Urry).
Conference Summary: AGN Physics with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Blazars are an extreme class of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs), they show rapid variability on different timescales from years to minutes across the whole electromagnetic spectrum (Urry & Padovani 1995; Ulrich, Maraschi & Urry 1997).
Phenomenological Analogies in TeV Blazars and Black Hole X-ray Binaries in low state
Black hole spin probably also plays a role in the unification model to explain different sub-classes of the accretion systems (e.g., Urry & Padovani 1995 for AGN unification model).
Phenomenological Analogies in TeV Blazars and Black Hole X-ray Binaries in low state
Despite the flurry of activity in the field, we still lack of an understanding of whether any of the large amount of available perturbative vacua (the dense “discreetuum” , or “landscape” ) is in any sense preferred over the rest (either dynamical, cosmological or antrhopically).
Flux compactifications in string theory: a comprehensive review
The main reason for this flurry of activity is that fluxes are the only known perturbative mechanism that stabilizes moduli.
Flux compactifications in string theory: a comprehensive review
The discovery of an accelerated cosmic expansion [1, 2] has led to a flurry of theoretical activity.
Solar System tests DO rule out 1/R gravity
The investigation of infrared properties of Landau-gauge gluon and ghost propagators — in order to test predictions of the Gribov-Zwanziger confineme nt scenario, or of the Kugo-Ojima scenario — has generated a flurry of papers in the last couple o f years.
Numerical test of the Gribov-Zwanziger scenario in Landau gauge
Strong beaming (1/b ≫ 1) — A decade ago, accreting BHs with strongly beamed emission were already well known in extragalactic astronomy (BL Lac objects and blazars: Urry & Shafer 1984), and at least one Galactic BH (SS 433) was known to have semi-relativistic jets, massive outflows and likely anisotropic emission.

There has been a flurry of research activities on classification of subcategories associated to algebraic ob jects in recent years.

Real physical clocks are made of matter with definite properties—an observation that has generated a recent flurry of interest in the idea of ‘quantum clocks’ with the hope that they may lead to a more tractable approach to the problem of time.

Hydrogen thus contributes significantly to the extraordinary flurry of experimental activity creating and probing Bose condensates, and applying them to intriguing new areas.
Bose-Einstein Condensation of Atomic Hydrogen
The Eddington ratio is roughly LBol/LEdd ∼ 0.44, where the mass of the black hole MBH = 107.23M⊙ estimated from maser observation (Greenhill et al. 1997) and the bolometric luminosity LBol = 1044.98erg/s by integrating the multiwavelength continuum (Woo & Urry 2002).
