In 2006 the Royal Society, in cooperation with the International Council for Science, the
InterAcademy Panel on International Issues (now the IAP—the Global Network of
Science Academies) and the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, organized a workshop
that surveyed trends in science and technology (S&T). The objective was to provide an
independent contribution from the international scientific community to the 6th
Conference of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BWC) that was held in
December of that year. ...
The present volume studies the application of concepts from non-equilibrium thermodynamics to a variety of research topics. Emphasis is on the Maximum Entropy Production (MEP) principle and applications to Geosphere-Biosphere couplings. Written by leading researchers from a wide range of backgrounds, the book presents a first coherent account of an emerging field at the interface of thermodynamics, geophysics and life sciences.
One of the greatest challenges South Africa faces is rural poverty and education. This book graphically illustrates the conditions that make the dreams of a better life for all virtually unrealisable in rural areas. Through the voices of rural people themselves, the reader is told
Along the way to becoming a space-faring species, humanity has faced enormous
challenges. Despite these many initial hurdles, however, the United States has
contributed to the progress of human spaceflight by delivering the lunar landings, the
space shuttle, and, in partnership with other nations, the International Space Station
(ISS). NASA’s rich and successful history has been enabled by, and responsible for,
a strong backbone of scientific and engineering research accomplishments.
I must, in particular, acknowledge
the courtesy of all the contributors in allowing me to organize their contributions in
producing a cohesive and correlated compilation, and to minimize overlaps between
closely related chapters. Molecular electronics provides means to
extend Moore’s Law beyond the foreseen limits of small-scale conventional silicon integrated
Soil is a biogeochemically dynamic natural resource that supports all
critical components that comprise terrestrial ecosystems. It has been
called Earth’s living skin. On its June 11, 2004, cover, Science declared soils
to be “the final frontier.” The growing awareness that soil provides a variety
of ecosystem services beyond food production has attracted interest in soil
from nonsoil scientists.
From John Glenn s mission to orbit Earth to the
International Space Station program, space food
research has met the challenge of providing food
that tastes good and travels well in space. To better understand
this process, we can look back through history.
Explorers have always had to face the problem of how to
carry enough food for their journeys. Whether those
explorers are onboard a sailing ship or on the Space
Shuttle, adequate storage space has been a problem.
Almost since their inception, the natural sciences, those fields that use the scientific
method to study nature, have been divided into two branches: the biological
sciences and the physical sciences. In part, this division can be viewed as a convenient
social contrivance. However, over time it has also served more functional
purposes. Physical scientists, when seeking the fundamental laws, have found it
necessary to focus on the simplest of systems—elementary particles, atoms, and
molecules—items clearly not alive.
The extraordinary popularity achieved and maintained by Dr. GEO. H. NAPHEYS' Physical Life of Woman,
places it beyond question among the classics of the English language. Convinced of its high literary as well as
medical value, the present publishers have spared no pains or expense to place it before the public in the most
The text has been most carefully revised and rewritten by the eminent author himself; extensive additions of
important matter the fruit of three more years devoted to the study of the subject and the wants of readers,
have been incorporated.

This book series was started in 1990 to promote research conducted under the auspices of the EC
programmes’ Advanced Informatics in Medicine (AIM) and Biomedical and Health Research
(BHR) bioengineering branch. A driving aspect of international health informatics is that
telecommunication technology, rehabilitative technology, intelligent home technology and many
other components are moving together and form one integrated world of information and
communication media. The complete series has been accepted in Medline. Volumes from 2005
onwards are available online....
Kabbalah, Science & the Meaning of Life traces the milestones of the evolution of science with which we are familiar, such as Newton’s and Einstein’s theories but goes further to present the science of Kabbalah as the basis for understanding the hidden parts of reality which scientists are now discovering. While other sciences research the definable world around us, Kabbalah teaches us how the spontaneous changes occurring within us affect our surrounding reality.
Introduction to Quantitative Research Methods is a student-friendly introduction to quantitative research methods and basic statistics. It uses a detective theme throughout the text and in multimedia courseware to show how quantitative methods have been used to solve real-life problems. The book focuses on principles and techniques that are appropriate to introductory level courses in media, psychology and sociology. Examples and illustrations are drawn from historical and contemporary research in the social sciences. ...
Earth science (also known as geoscience, the geosciences or the Earth sciences) is an all-embracing term for the sciences related to the planet Earth. It is arguably a special case in planetary science, the Earth being the only known life-bearing planet. There are both reductionist and holistic approaches to Earth sciences. The formal discipline of Earth sciences may include the study of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, oceans and biosphere, as well as the solid earth.
That philosophy is "materialism", which holds a number of bogus views about why
and how we came into being. Materialism maintains that there is nothing but the matter
and that matter is the essence of everything, be it organic or inorganic. Starting out from
this premise, it denies the existence of a divine Creator, that is, Allah. Reducing every-
thing to the level of matter, this notion transforms man into a creature that heeds only
matter and turns away from moral values of whatever kind. This is the beginning of big
disasters that will befall a man's life....

The products of science and technology influence the lives of
all citizens, including young adults. New means of communication
and transportation, new ways of doing work and
pursuing recreation, new foods and new medicines arrive
almost daily. Science also engenders new ways of looking at
the world and at other citizens. Likewise, science can raise
concerns about moral and ethical values.
Dealing with all such changes requires some resiliency.
As a scientist who has worked for more than 40 years to find cures for infectious
disease, I find the idea that terrorists would use biological agents as a
weapon to be anathema. It violates the fundamental values of the life sciences that
I and my colleagues hold dear: that science is a vital tool for improving life and
the health of our planet and enhancing our understanding of the natural world.
My own work has focused on cholera, a disease responsible for the death
of thousands of people around the world every year.
