Deborah Laughton, Publisher, Methodology and Statistics, at The Guilford Press, about the challenges of teaching research seminars or other courses in which students conduct a thesis project.

  • At the same time, however, economists were proposing effluent taxes as a policy that could both generate incentives to meet ambient quality targets and minimize the costs of doing so. Moreover, proponents of effluent fees received a receptive hearing in the political arena. The Environmental Pollution Panel of the President’s Science Advisory Committee recommended in 1965 “that careful study be given to tax-like systems in which all polluters would be subject to ‘effluent charges’ in proportion to their contribution to pollution ….

  • From the time of the first Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries oil embargo nearly 30 years ago, the United States has looked to new technology for solutions to its energy problems. Indeed, the first government reports to recommend an energy research and development (R&D) agenda appeared within weeks of that 1973 event. In 1975, President Ford created the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA), consolidating under one umbrella existing R&D energy programs from several agencies. In late 1977, ERDA became part of the new Department of Energy (DOE).

  • This article criticizes the predominant use of fear appeals in social marketing. Laboratory studies, which have been the basis for most of the research on fear appeals and which generally suggest that high fear works, have limitations that include forced exposure, short-term measurement, and an overdependence on student samples. Although, unfortunately, field research evaluations of fear appeals are few, they usually reveal that fear has both weaker effects and unintended deleterious effects in real-world social marketing campaigns.

  • and Kay Stables is one of those booksthat need no recommendation for those who know the field. Their workis internationally known for its quality. Their names are the first to pop up when one organises a conference on technology education and seeks for keynote presenters in a conference section on assessment. For people in technology education the combination of Kimbell and Stables is almost synonymous with Goldsmiths College. Any College can hardly wish itself betterambassadors to establish a reputation for the institute than these two colleagues.

  • In an ideal world scientists would not use animals (mainly mice and rats) for medical research. They would use alternative techniques. In fact, they are doing so increasingly. Non-animal methods now account for about 90% of medical research and include mathematical and computer models, advanced tissue and cell cultures and scanning technology. However, the scientific consensus is that many key questions can still only be answered by animal studies.

  • A soft ground condition exists whenever construction loads a cohesive foundation soil beyond its preconsolidation stress, as often occurs with saturated clays and silts having SPT blow counts that are near zero. The paper recommends testing programs, testing methods and data interpretation techniques for developing design parameters for settlement and stability analyses. It hopes to move the state-of-practice closer to the state-of-the-art and thus is intended for geotechnical practitioners and teachers rather than researchers.
