He was also a diplomat (honorary consul for San Marino), a traveller (in Europe, the Balkans and North Africa), a flying buff who officiated at the first British air meeting at Doncaster in 1909, and a wireless pioneer who broadcast music from his own station long before radio was generally available; his claims regarding his own abilities and exploits, however, were usually exaggerated....

And there are many invisible things, too - radio waves, sound, ionizing radiation. If we are to make any sense of all this, we need to simplify it. We use models, in everyday life and in science, as a method of simplifying and making sense of everything we observe. A model is a way of explaining something difficult in terms of something more familiar. For example, there are many models used to describe...

  • The meteorological archive contains what is believed to be the longest continuous daily climate series from a single site in the UK and Ireland and one of the longest in the world. The climate station has been continuously maintained since 1795, with readings currently taken every day at 09:00 (GMT). Calibration of these data has enabled researchers and government agencies to use the Armagh series for reports and research into global warming. This is a subject of strategic importance for Northern Ireland as we move into an era of rapid climate change.

  • The investment game has changed over the past two decades. Historically, the challenge facing investors has been to identify good investments. While that’s obviously still important, investors increasingly recognize that that alone isn’t enough. Five good mutual funds can still make a bad portfolio, or at least one that’s inappropriate for a given investor’s goals. It’s becoming clear that investors must move beyond good versus bad investments and toward appropriate or inappropriate usage of investments, taking into account their time horizons and risk tolerance.

  • Accompanied by guitar music composed by the Argentine Gustavo Santaolalla – who is known for his film scores for Alejandro González Iñárritu – it sets a quiet pace with a dreamlike quality. This quality is further enhanced by the lack of any sounds from the environments shown in the images. As I have noted elsewhere (Flückiger, 2001: 397) this absence of environmental sounds marks a detachment of the character from the world he or she inhabits, be it euphoric (as is often the case in American montage sequences) or dysphoric (as in nightmares or borderline experiences)....

  • The purpose of this book is twofold. We realise to-day, as never before, that the fortunes of the world, and of every individual in it, are deeply affected by the problems of world-politics and by the imperial expansion and the imperial rivalries of the greater states of Western civilisation. But when men who have given no special attention to the history of these questions try to form a sound judgment on them, they find themselves handicapped by the lack of any brief and clear resume of the subject. I have tried, in this book, to provide such a summary,...

  • The World Health Organization recognises the quality of the early years as a key social determinant of health17. There are sound theoretical and empirical reasons for focusing mental health promotion interventions on young children to prevent a range of problems in later life18 including mental health problems, obesity, criminality, family violence, poor literacy, unemployment and welfare dependency. Prevention and early intervention is also less expensive and more effective than treatment19.

  • Cross-linguistic similarities are reflected by the speech sound systems of languages all over the world. In this work we try to model such similarities observed in the consonant inventories, through a complex bipartite network. We present a systematic study of some of the appealing features of these inventories with the help of the bipartite network. An important observation is that the occurrence of consonants follows a two regime power law distribution.
