Forty years ago, Congress asked the National Academies Committee on
Science, Engineering, and Public Policy (COSEPUP)—the only joint policy
committee of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of
Engineering, and Institute of Medicine—to look at the relationship between basic
research and national goals. That request, from the House Committee on Science
and Astronautics in 1964, resulted in the report Basic Research and National Goals.
"Advanced Technologies in Earth Sciences" is based on the German Geoscientific Research and Development Programme "GEOTECHNOLOGIEN" funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Research Foundation (DFG). This programme comprises a nationwide network of transdisciplinary research projects and incorporates numerous universities, non-universitry research facilities and companies.
During the last 20 years the nanotechnology has been a demand of the worldwide
technology. In the early 1990s the microscale technology was almost fully understood
and the scientists tried to find a solution how to miniturize electronic devices and en-
gineering applications to a microscale level. At that time they already had the evidence
that this is possible particularly due to fast development of microscope test equip-
ments and facilities.

This project was initiated in response to a letter from Charles Kean,
an Associate Professor of Physiology and Pharmacology and
Director of the Animal Care Facility at Loma Linda University, to
the National Research Council’s (NRC’s) Institute for Laboratory Animal
Research (ILAR), the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of
Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) International, and the Office of
Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) of the National Institutes of Health
(NIH) outlining the research animal care community’s concerns about the
safe and humane transportation of research animal...
Information technologies include the entire field of computer-based information processing (i.e., hardware,
software, applications, and services, telecommunication links and networks, digital databases, and the integrated
technical specifications that enable these systems to function interactively). Information technologies are a major
force in the U.S. economy and new applications are being developed and deployed into the marketplace on an 18-
to 24-month cycle.
This report presents an overview of the launch of the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) — the first research-funding organization of its kind in the Middle East — from August 2006 through January 2008. It describes the design and implementation of QNRF's first programs, the Undergraduate Research
The first Section of this book starts with a collection of articles about sustainable
education or education for sustainable development. The papers present research and
practices of teaching and education as essential tools for achieving sustainable
development. Alternative perspective to funding public schools and Universities are
also presented in this section. The goal is to foster the increased quality of teaching and
learning and help countries make progress toward development.
Like applying for a library card, it is a good idea to gain access to an Internet facility or site, particularly if you don't have a computer or Internet access at home. Again, many pub-lic libraries and institutions will allow you to use the Internet and computers at no extra cost.
Since the first desktop computers emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the power,
speed and storage capacity has increased radically, especially in recent years. Indeed, the
whole approach to computing and database management has shifted from the independent
researcher keeping records for a particular project to state-of-the-art file storage systems,
presentation and distribution over the World Wide Web.
Through many last assignments, we had many big chances to be acquainted with doing in-group, working with many various topics, which required an ability of working, of researching, etc... With this HD2 project, we also get more chances to work in-group, but in this topic, we get a new way to do this assignment. It brings us a chance to communicate with foreigners, to interview and from that; we can learn something different from last assignments.
At Hoa An research station - belonging to Can Tho University - a student dormitory and other research facilities are under construction. The existing ground water supply will not meet the prospective fresh water demands of about 300 people in the nearest future.
Open ocean aquaculture is broadly defined as the rearing of marine organisms in exposed areas beyond significant coastal influence. Open ocean aquaculture employs less control over organisms and the surrounding environment than do inshore and land-based aquaculture, which are often undertaken in enclosures, such as ponds. When aquaculture operations are located beyond coastal state jurisdiction, within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ; generally 3 to 200 miles from shore), they are regulated primarily by federal agencies.
The mitigation of earthquake-related hazards represents a key role in the modern society. The main goal of this book is to present 9 scientific papers focusing on new research and results on earthquake seismology. Chapters of this book focus on several aspect of seismology ranging from historical earthquake analysis, seismotectonics, and damage estimation of critical facilities.

Preparation of stable magnetic nanofluids containing Fe3O4@PPy nanoparticles by a novel one-pot route
Baobao Zhao and Zhaodong Nan*
Abstract Stable magnetic nanofluids containing Fe3O4@Polypyrrole (PPy) nanoparticles (NPs) were prepared by using a facile and novel method, in which one-pot route was used. FeCl3·6H2O was applied as the iron source, and the oxidizing agent to produce PPy. Trisodium citrate (Na3cit) was used as the reducing reagent to form Fe3O4 NPs.
Representing nearly fifty years of cooperation between Wiley and the Structural Stability Research Council, the Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures is often described as an invaluable reference for practicing structural engineers and researchers. For generations of engineers and architects, the Guide has served as the definitive work on designing steel and aluminum structures for stability.
WAGE RETURNS FOR POST -SECONDARY EDUCATION: A COMPARISON FOR SELECTED PROGRAMS BY LEVELS OF EDUCATION AND INDUSTRY TYPE The potential effects of school choice programs depend critically on what
characteristics parents value in schools. Hanushek, for example, notes that parents might
not choose effective schools over others that are less effective but offer pleasant
surroundings, athletic facilities, [and] cultural advantages, (1981, p. 34). To the extent that
parents choose productive schools, market discipline can induce greater productivity from
school administrators and teachers.
The current study was undertaken in a new manufactured house set up as a research
facility. The plan was to conduct longitudinal measurements of VOC concentrations in the
house along with measurements of key physical parameters including house air change rate,
indoor and outdoor temperature and relative humidity, and wind conditions over a period of
approximately one year. The primary objective was to evaluate changes in the emissions of
formaldehyde and other VOCs in response to time, house air change rate, and the other
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.
In this little book I have endeavoured to maintain the simplicity which is the ideal of this series. It is more difficult, however, to be simple in a topic which, even in its illustrations, demands of the reader more or less facility in the exploration of his own mind. I am persuaded that the attempt to make the matter of psychology more elementary than is here done, would only result in making it untrue and so in defeating its own object. In preparing the book I have secured the right and welcomed the opportunity to include certain more popular...
