Last Week's Puzzle

I notably lurk on the fringes of physics
I rely on people's ignorance of water's specific capacity
I was the world's only teacher of my practice from 1977-1984
I don't spend much time doing what I do
I keep my momentum, yet try to stay uneven
And if those dollars are burning a hole in your pocket, I can teach you to attain virtually any goal

Who am I?

Answer: Polly Burkin
