I thought Barry Popik was living in Arizona, but I just got a mysterious LinkedIn connection request from "Barry Popik, BS Rensselaer Polytechnic, Doctor of Law Touro College".  According to the LinkedIn request, Dr. Popik is living in Goshen,  Orange County, New York.
If this is our old ADS-L colleague, then the BS from Renssalaer implies a technical degree.  Perhaps in nuclear physics, which could use an etymologist before it gets totally swamped by terminology like "quark", "muon", "Higgs boson", "collapse of the wave function", and "dark energy".
