One evening,a husband and wife are working in their garden. While watering the grass, the wife holds the hose horizontally and the water flows from the end of the hose. She twists the nozzle of the hose to partially close it and suddenly the water shoots farther from the end of the hose. This seems odd to her husband, who wonders, "Why does the stream of water travel farther, since it appears that less water is flowing from the end of the hose?" My challenge is to give a scientific explanation for this unnatural phenomenom.

The twin cities of Urbana and Champaign are divided by Wright Street, which runs north-south through the middle of the University campus. East-west streets have the same name in both cities, for the most part, but discrete numbering. If you are going to a building identified by a street address, you must know which city it is in. (For example, 1110 West Green Street, Urbana, is nearly 5 km away from 1110 West Green Street, Champaign.)
The Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (MTD), which carries more than 10 million passengers a year, offers excellent public transportation, including a novel "bikes on buses" program and an interactive trip planner. The fare is $1.00/ride; transfers are free (as of June 2008). Exact change is required after 7 PM. Six tokens (1 token/ride) may be purchased for $5.00 from any bus driver before 7 PM.
