This volume constitutes the Proceedings of the 9th International Congress
of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science arranged by the Division of
Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science of the International Union of
History and Philosophy of Science. The logical sections of the Congress also
constituted the European Logic Colloqium '91. The Congress took place in
Uppsala, Sweden, from August 7 to August 14, 1991.
In order to attract the best engineers of each generation to one of the most
urgent fields of engineering development we must embed understanding not
just of the challenges, but the opportunities, within the collective
consciousness of the public through the mass media. We must design a career
path that is desired by young professionals, accredited by institutions and that
will afford recognition and esteem. We must develop university courses that
will excite and entice students to address the challenge of creating a low
This report presents an overview of the field of building engineering physics
and identifies opportunities for developments that will benefit society as a
whole, as well as employers, universities, professional engineering institutions
and in particular professionals who are following careers with building
engineering physics as the basis. The report makes key recommendations for
Government policy, academic and industry research directions and professional
development in the field to achieve the skill levels necessary to deliver mass
market low carbon buildings.
In the course of the present year, one of our friends, distinguished by rank, fortune, and science, came to me
upon the following occasion: In the country, he said, a young woman was taken up, and committed to jail to
take her trial, for the supposed murder of her bastard child.
In the year 1887 he startled the town and made a Society sensation by means of an exceedingly original
enterprise which any man of less audacious and prodigious power of work would have shrunk from in its very
inception. For years this Titanic task was in hand. This was his celebrated 'artistic joke,' the name given by
the 'Times' to a bold parody on a large scale of an average Royal Academy Exhibition.
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. ...
In this book on the Bronze Age in Ireland I have collected and collated all my work on the period. Much of it I have already published in the “Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy” and elsewhere. I have long felt the need of a book on the Bronze Age in Ireland, as hitherto none has appeared dealing adequately with the archæology of that period in this country. Within the last few years it has been recognized that the Bronze-Age civilization in Europe did not consist of a series of isolated communities, each developing its own type of objects...
Founded in by the King Louis Napoleon under the complicated,
french-inspired name of ‘Koninklijk Instituut van Wetenschappen, Letter-
kunde en Schoone Kunsten’, the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences
() is now a respected institution, with a number of important missions:
advice to the government on strategic matters, scientific forum for Academy
members, advanced research through its own institutes, etc.
A metallic voice rasped over the loud-speakers and echoed through
the lofty marble and aluminum concourse of the New Chicago Monorail
Terminal. "Atom City express on Track Seven! Space Academy first stop!
Passengers for Space Academy will please take seats in the first six cars!"
As the crowd of people waiting in the concourse surged through the
gate leading to Track Seven, three boys in the royal-blue uniforms of the
Space Cadet Corps slowly picked up their plastic space bags and joined
the mass of travelers.
