There are a number of compelling reasons for all physicians to possess knowledge
and skill in the behavioral and social sciences. Perhaps most important is
that roughly half of the causes of mortality in the United States are linked to
social and behavioral factors. In addition, our nation’s population is aging and
becoming more culturally diverse. Both of these trends highlight the need for
enhanced physician capabilities in the behavioral and social sciences.
From stem cell research to intelligent design to global warming, political conflict over science is heating up.
In his 2005 bestseller, The Republican War on Science, journalist Chris Mooney made the case that, again and again, even overwhelming scientific consensus has met immovable political obstacles. And, again and again, those obstacles have arisen on the right—from the Bush administration, from coalitions of Republicans and from individually powerful Republicans.
When The Science of Getting Rich arrived in the mail that afternoon
I immediately ripped open the package, sat down, and read it with an open mind mostly because the title was just so intriguing.And even though I must admit I found some of the
old-fashioned language and some of the ideas in the first part a
bit confusing, there was something about it that compelled me
to reread those little confusing bits two or three times until I
In the euphoria over IT and the Internet in the 1990s and early
2000s, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) took center
stage. Most every major company invested heavily in broad suites of
demand side applications that were supposed to transform interactions
with customers and drive sales and profitability. The logic behind
CRM seemed compelling, and companies invested to the tune of
tens of billions of dollars. Siebel Systems, among others, attained the
status of a stock market darling as sales of software licenses grew exponentially.

.Templeton Science and Religion Series
In our fast-paced and high-tech era, when visual information seems so dominant, the need for short and compelling books has increased. This conciseness and convenience is the goal of the Templeton Science and Religion Series. We have commissioned scientists in a range of fields to distill their experience and knowledge into a brief tour of their specialties. They are writing for a general audience, readers with interests in the sciences or the humanities, which includes religion and theology.
The Committee on High Energy Density Plasma Physics was established in April
2001 by the National Research Council’s (NRC’s) Board on Physics and Astronomy
to identify scientific opportunities and develop a unifying theme for research on
matter under extreme high energy density conditions.
WHILE Professor Cargill lectured from the rostrum, Neal Pardeau prowled the dark auditorium. This, he knew, was the place to find them. Here was where they whispered and plotted and schemed—feeling safe in this pure, hard core of patriotism. Safe because Cargill was the Director of Education in the New State, just as Pardeau was the Director of Public Security. Safe because Cargill's lectures were given before a commanded audience, with attendance strictly mandatory. The insistence was not really necessary of course. The people would have come to hear Cargill regardless.
Gertrude Barrows Bennett (1883–1948) was the first major female
writer of fantasy and science fiction in the United States, publishing her
stories under the pseudonym Francis Stevens. Bennett wrote a number of
highly acclaimed fantasies between 1917 and 1923. Among her most famous
books are Claimed (which H. P. Lovecraft called "One of the
strangest and most compelling science fantasy novels you will ever
read") and the lost world novel The Citadel of Fear. Bennett also wrote
an early dystopian novel, The Heads of Cerberus (1919). Gertrude Mabel
Barrows was born in Minneapolis in 1883....
English as their native tongue are compelled to write
their work in English which, by chance, happens to be the de facto, universal language of
science. As a result, it compelled me to address many of the aspects of scientific writing from
the viewpoint of non-native English speaking authors and to emphasise that they are not as
disadvantaged as they perhaps may think. The language of science which conveys logic and
reasoning, is independent of the language in which it happens to be expressed.
Marketing focuses on attracting customers, getting them to buy, and
making sure they’re happy enough with their purchases that they
come back for more. What could be more important?
Marketing is part science, part art, and it can be challenging to bottle up
both parts into a winning campaign.

analysis is a rapidly expanding interdisciplinary paradigm ,
much of which is taking place with online data. As such,
some concepts will only be addressed superficially, while
others (such as positions, p* models and multilevel analysis)
will be excluded entirely. The goal is to facilitate enough
network literacy to begin a research project rather than provide
a complete end-to-end solution. Social network analysis has
emerged in the past half-century as a compelling complement
to the standard toolkit of social science researchers.
Human reason is called upon to consider certain questions, which it cannot decline, as they are presented by
its own nature, but which it cannot answer. These questions relate to God, freedom of the will, and
immortality. And the name for the subject which has to deal with these questions is metaphysics. At one time
metaphysics was regarded as the queen of all the sciences, and the importance of its aim justified the title. At
first the subject, propounding as it did a dogmatic system, exercised a despotic sway. But its subsequent
failure brought it into disrepute.
