Sadly, heres when fields like evolution and climate change run into fundamental roadblocks of the kind faced by social scientists; the sheer complexity of the system thwarts attempts at clean experiments. The big problem with fields like psychology, sociology and economics is that it is often difficult or even impossible to perform controlled experiments. Admittedly the situation here is worse than climate science, since the data itself is variable and represents a moving target (was the state of mind of your experimental subjects the same on Monday as on Tuesday?). Consider the hundreds of pop science books on neuroscience claiming that things like fMRI scans can explain emotions like hate and jealousy, and even spiritual and religious experiences. Other problems notwithstanding, how on earth do we not know that at the very least, like the perpetual observed-induced reality in quantum mechanics, we do not influence what we want to observe? But even in the apparently more rigorous discipline ...

The International workshop on Physics of Poly-Domain Liquid Crystalline Elastomers will be held on June 9-11, 2011, at 601, Pao Yue-Kong Library(North Gate Entrance) Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, P.R. China. The physics of the poly-domain phase of liquid crystalline elastomers (LCE) has attracted strong interest from many of us for quite some time. In addition to their potential for technological applications, these systems pose fascinating fundamental questions about the statistical mechanics of amorphous solids that possess internal orientational order. In contrast to conventional (i.e., fluid) liquid crystals, within a nelastomer deformations of the LC order necessarily induce elastic strains in the solid itself. These would impose a large elastic energy cost on the system as a whole - as we would naively expect from our intuition about elastic solids. Regardless of our intuition, the LC order within a liquid crystalline elastomer, when cross-linked under isotropic conditions, ...

University of Basel. Dr. Arber was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery of the restriction enzymes which opened new paths to genetic engineering. He is a Professor of Molecular Microbiology at the University of Basel. His main scientific interests are the mechanisms which promote and which limit exchange of genetic information in microorganisms. His research has been very important in the understanding of DNA. He has postulated a theory of molecular evolution, according to which the products of evolutionary genes carried in the genome are involved either in the generation or in the limitation of genetic variation, without implying a specific direction to biological evolution. Rather, the course of biological evolution results from the casual action of the products of evolutionary genes on DNA, from the conformational flexibility of the structures of biologically active molecules, from the largely stochastic nature of any interaction affecting genetic stability, and from chance ...

My research focuses on understanding of the molecular signal and machinery involved in egress Plasmodium falciparum merozoites from host erythrocytes, involving multidisciplinary approach such as live cell imaging, molecular biology, cell biology and protein chemistry. P. falciparum causes the most virulent form of malaria in humans leading to tremendous morbidity and mortality. All the clinical symptoms of malaria are attributed to the blood stage of the parasite life cycle. To complete its life cycle in blood stage, P. falciparum merozoites invade erythrocytes, replicate, and then exit by a process known as egress. The egress of P. falciparum merozoites from the host erythrocytes is an essential yet poorly understood process. Live video microscopy has played a special role in studies on egress and invasion. Real-time light microscopic visualization of in vitro blood-stage egress in live parasites has been performed in the simian parasite Plasmodium knowlesi and in P. falciparum. In both cases ...
Belgian biologists have rediscovered a hotspot for underwater life in the North Sea. In the vicinity of a few sandbanks along the Belgian coast, the fauna is flourishing just like it was a hundred years ago. Despite increased disruption due to fishing, the area is teeming with whelks, top shells and dead mans fingers.. The Belgian North Sea primarily has a sandy bed, but on the edges of some sandbanks there are gravel beds made up of rocks and pebbles. More than a hundred years ago Professor Gustave Gilson, a Belgian pioneer in biological marine research, ascertained that the biodiversity there was very high, differing greatly from the surrounding sandy areas. The gravel beds were also breeding grounds for fish, including herring, which found shelter there.. Over subsequent decades, the gravel areas were greatly diminished due to fishing: the stones were overturned or pulled up along with the catch, which meant the species that were typical of the region could no longer live there. But ten ...
In the presence of ever visible effects of global climate change, small scale wind turbines are considered as viable renewable systems. Horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWT) are popular for grid-connected power generation. Yet there is an increasing demand for small-scale portable power generation, typically away from the grid and provided by diesel generator and small scale photovoltaic panels. Small scale vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) can be used as power supplies for telecommunication towers, recreational and military camps away from the population. Moreover silent and aesthetic VAWT prototypes are attractive for urban use as well. Unlike HAWTs, VAWTs are omnidirectional and can obtain higher capacity factors in near-the-ground installations where the direction of the wind is more erratic than higher altitudes. There are two types of VAWT designs: drag-based and lift-based. In the drag-based Savonius design, drag force on the blades is asymmetric and wherever the wind blows the imbalance ...
Fuel cells are clean, compact and modular energy generation devices that generate electricity by a chemical reaction between a fuel and an oxidant. Polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) offers several advantages for both mobile and stationary applications yet it is necessary to develop low cost and more efficient PEMFCs. The heart of the PEMFC is the membrane electrode assembly composed of a proton exchange membrane sandwiched between two porous gas diffusion electrodes. At this point, graphene is a promising candidate as catalyst support material for PEMFCs due to its outstanding mechanical, structural, and electronic properties. Herein, the support material becomes significant to get high catalytic performance of catalysts by lower catalyst loadings. For the production of advanced type of gas diffusion layers, the distinguished properties of graphene are combined with the structural properties of conducting polymers and the impregnation of low-amount of Pt catalysts on graphene ...

MATERIALS AND METHODS Plant materials and ClO2 treatments. Longan fruit cv. Daw at the harvesting stage (180 d after full bloom, 15-16% total soluble solid) were obtained from a commercial orchard in Lamphun province, Thailand and transported to the Postharvest Physiology and Technology Research Laboratory at Chiang Mai University under 25 °C within 2 h. Fruit were selected for uniformity in shape, color, size and lack of defects and divided into 6 groups of 330 fruit each. ClO2 gas was prepared according to Saengnil et al. (2014). The most effective concentration for reducing pericarp browning and maintaining fruit quality of longan was 10 mg L−1 for 10 min (Saengnil et al., 2014). A 10 min fumigation with 0 and 10 mg L-1 ClO2 was done in a chamber separately in triplicate. After fumigation, the chamber was ventilated for 30 min to remove any residual ClO2. The fumigated fruit in each group were placed in a commercial cardboard box (25 cm (L) × 17 cm (W) × 9 cm (H)), 30 fruit per box. All ...

Pyridine,one of bio-recalcitrant compounds,was treated with photocatalysis to break its molecular structure.It could not be oxidized by potassium dichromate until photocatalysis,which was proved by COD increasing with photocatalytic time increasing.Pyridine was taken as organic carbon source to reduce nitrate in denitrification,and experimental results indicated that nitrate removal percentage with photocatalysis was increased as 4.2 times as that without photocatalysis.When pyridine was treated with photocatalysis and used as organic carbon source for denitrification of 30 min,the nitrate removal percentage was equivalent to the same effect by adding 150 mg/L of glucose as carbon source,which suggested that biodegradability of pyridine was improved after photocatalysis,which could realize pyridine and nitrate removal at the same time.

As she began investigating a sunny patch of grass and fallen leaves, a garter snake slowly curved its way forward about two feet and stopped, remaining alert with head up and tongue flickering. Coyote conveniently decided that nothing significant was there and moved on. In contrast, I appreciated this fleeting wildlife sight, for soon New Hampshires snakes would be disappearing from view for the winter phase of their year.. Our most common New England snake, the garter snake, Thamnophis sirtalia, has a variable pattern usually combining a narrow yellow stripe down the back with a wide stripe on each side. Between stripes is a dark checkered pattern. Garter snakes received their name because this ...
Jason Poole, who oversees the lab and has participated in dinosaur digs around the world, says the fossils were unearthed in Wyoming in 2011 by a team from the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton. Scientists already know the fossils belong to a 25-foot-long, duck-billed, plant-eating dinosaur that lived 67 to 70 million years ago. Its of the hadrosaur family, the same family as the famous Hadrosaurus foulkii, the worlds first nearly complete dinosaur, which the Academy displayed in 1868 as the worlds first mounted dinosaur.. But scientists wont know what species of hadrosaur the mystery dinosaur is until they can fully see and examine the fossils. Even though they have found only a small portion of the dinosaur, scientists are confident they will be able to identify it, especially since they have parts of the skull, which often is not recovered.. From neck to tail, all hadrosaurids look alike, Poole says. But we have a good bit of the skull, which makes it a lot easier to identify the ...
The prime objective of this study is to assess the socio-economic impact of wetlands in the study area; the secondary objective is to establish the condition of the wetlands and to propose remedial measures. Primary and secondary data were used for this study. As primary data, we employed direct observation, questionnaire survey and group discussion. As secondary data, we utilized statistical data from Navithanveli DS Division, previous researches and general ecological works. In Navithenveli DS Division, inhabitants are benefitted by wetlands in many ways. Paddy cultivations, vegetable cultivation, small-scale fishing, biodiversity, groundwater recharge, gardening, Tule mat industry and water for domestic usages. Indiscriminate activities of inhabitants, unplanned and improper infrastructure have caused many challenges for the wetlands in the study area. Many remedial measures have been recommended to conserve the wetlands in the study area ...

In this work, Zn1-xCoFe2AlxO4 (x=0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0) ferrites were synthesized using the sol-gel method. XRD analysis was done and confirmed the formation of spinel structure, where the particle size and lattice parameter decrease with increase of aluminum concentration. This may be attributed to a shift of the bigger Al3+ ions, from the tetrahedral to the octahedral sites, interchanging with smaller Zn2+ ions and that consequently result to a decreased unit cell size. The Scanning Kelvin Probe Microscopy (SKPM) showed that the work function average ranges between 200 and 680 mV for the different concentration of aluminum in the samples. Fractural analysis indicated a small fracture between the samples of different ratios which can be attributed to the method used to prepare as well as the shifting of the Al3+ ions. The UV-vis spectroscopy showed variation of energy gap with increasing aluminum concentration, and an increased optical absorbance as the Al3+ ions were introduced in the
Two exotic fungal isolates, one of Beauveria bassiana (268-86) and another of Metarhizium anisopliae (100-82), three local isolates of B. bassiana (isolates I, II, III) and one of the entomogenous bacteria Serratia marcescens, were tested for pathogenicity against the banana weevil Cosmopolites sordidus. All four isolates of B. bassiana and the one of M. anisopliae were found to be pathogenic to third-instar larvae of C. sordidus, causing mortalities of 98-100% by 9 days post-exposure to dry fungal spores. M. anisopliae was the least pathogenic to larvae with LT50 of 4.2 days, compared to 3.5, 3.3, 3.6 and 4.0 respectively for isolates I, II, III and 268-86. B. bassiana was also pathogenic to adult C. sordidus, causing mortalities varying from 63-97% by 35 days post-exposure depending on isolate. As for larvae M. anisopliae exhibited low pathogenicity for the adult C. sordidus. In general, all the fungi tested were less pathogenic to adult weevils (LT50 = 17.5; 12.5; 8.0 and 22.0 days) for ...

The notion of natural kinds has been central to contemporary discussions of metaphysics and philosophy of science. Although explicitly articulated by nineteenth-century philosophers like Mill, Whewell and Venn, it has a much older history dating back to Plato and Aristotle. In recent years, essentialism has been the dominant account of natural kinds among philosophers, but the essentialist view has encountered resistance, especially among naturalist metaphysicians and philosophers of science. Informed by detailed examination of classification in the natural and social sciences, this book argues against essentialism and for a naturalist account of natural kinds. By looking at case studies drawn from diverse scientific disciplines, from fluid mechanics to virology and polymer science to psychiatry, the author argues that natural kinds are nodes in causal networks. On the basis of this account, he maintains that there can be natural kinds in the social sciences as well as the natural sciences ...
Earth science or geoscience includes all fields of natural science related to planet Earth. This is a branch of science dealing with the physical and chemical constitution of Earth and its atmosphere. Earth science can be considered to be a branch of planetary science, but with a much older history. Earth science encompasses four main branches of study, the lithosphere, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere, and the biosphere, each of which is further broken down into more specialized fields. There are both reductionist and holistic approaches to Earth sciences. It is also the study of Earth and its neighbors in space. Some Earth scientists use their knowledge of the planet to locate and develop energy and mineral resources. Others study the impact of human activity on Earths environment, and design methods to protect the planet. Some use their knowledge about Earth processes such as volcanoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes to plan communities that will not expose people to these dangerous events. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Is Information Science an Anomalous State of Knowledge. AU - Hollnagel, E.. PY - 1980. Y1 - 1980. N2 - This paper looks at some of the problems in information science from the experience with similar problems in psycho logy. The apparent need for a set of rigorous definitions of the basic concepts is discussed, and it is argued that although this is necessary for the natural sciences it is not necessary for sciences which concern themselves with behavioral phenomena which have a prior description in natural language. It is further argued that information science should be more interested in uncertainty than in information, and it is shown how the Anomalous State of Knowledge (ASK) paradigm may be used to describe itself, hence also informa tion science. It is finally concluded that by turning to problems of uncertainty and lack of information, rather than information, information science may avoid many of the mistakes made by psychology.. AB - This paper looks at some of the ...

Physics seeks to describe the nature of the physical world. The most fundamental of the natural sciences, it forms an essential part of any serious program of study in any branch of science, and indeed, to an increasing degree in the modern world, it is important in any well-balanced curriculum for the non-scientist as well. In the undergraduate program the development of fundamental concepts and mathematical formulation proceeds simultaneously in a selected series of courses in physics and mathematics, from the elementary ideas of classical mechanics through modern relativistic, quantum and nuclear theories. Whether the student wishes to prepare for more advanced study in physics itself; for a career in applied areas such as photonics, materials science, or biomedical engineering; for a career in such fields as astronomy, space research, or oceanography; or simply wishes to be informed in an important area of scientific thought, he/she will be able to make an appropriate choice of courses from ...
By turns a distiller, a lawyer, and an extremely successful business entrepreneur, Zanvyl Krieger made his name best known as an extraordinary philanthropist. His greatest single gift was a $50 million challenge grant, made in 1992, to the School of Arts and Sciences of the Johns Hopkins University. The gift is one of the largest ever directed exclusively to a U.S. school or college of arts and sciences, the division of a university that focuses on the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. To pay fitting tribute, Hopkins renamed its core institution, so that it is now the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.. Krieger was a life-long Baltimorean with committed civic ties. He played an ownership role in both the Baltimore Orioles and the Baltimore Colts. His charitable concerns included the Krieger Childrens Eye Center at Johns Hopkins Wilmer Ophthalmological Institute; the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum; the Kennedy Krieger Institute, a world-renowned clinic for ...

Georges de Morsier (25 February 1894, Paris - 9 January 1982, Geneva) was a French-Swiss neurologist. He studied natural sciences and medicine in Geneva, and following graduation, returned to Paris as an assistant to psychiatrist Gaétan de Clérambault. In 1928 he became a privat-docent for neurology and psychiatry. In 1941 he became an associate professor at Geneva, where in 1960, he was appointed professor of neurology and director of the university neurological clinic. From 1962 onward, he was also in charge of the neurological polyclinic. Known for his research of visual hallucinations, he is credited with coining the terms Charles Bonnet syndrome (named after Swiss biologist Charles Bonnet) and Zingerle syndrome (named after Austrian neurologist Hermann Zingerle) for specific hallucinatory conditions. He also honored his mentor, Gaétan de Clérambault, with a syndrome - it being defined as a hallucinatory state characterized by auditory and visual hallucinations associated with ...
Johann Ernst Immanuel Walch (29 August 1725 - 1 December 1778) was a German theologian, linguist, and naturalist from Jena. The son of the theologian Johann Georg Walch, he studied Semitic languages at the University of Jena, and also natural science and mathematics. In 1749 he published Einleitung in die Harmonie der Evangelien, and in 1750 was appointed professor extraordinarius of theology. Five years later he became professor ordinarius of logic and metaphysics; in 1759 he exchanged this for a professorship of rhetoric and poetry. Amongst his theological works were Dissertationes in Acta Apostolorum (1756-1761); Antiquitales symbolicae (1772); and after his death appeared Observationes in Matthaeum ex Graecis inscriptionibus (1779). He also published a periodical Der Naturforscher (1774-1778), and during the years 1749-1756 took an active part in editing the Zeitungen von gelehrten Sachen. Most of Walchs interests and publications were on topics in the humanities. These included early ...

Sustainable management of natural resources requires an in-depth understanding of the interplay between social and ecological change. Linked social-ecological systems (SES) have been described as complex adaptive systems (CAS), which mean that they are irreducible, exhibit nonlinear dynamics, have interactions across scales and are uncertain and unpredictable. These propositions have however rarely been tested empirically, in part due to a lack of methodological approaches and suitable datasets. In this thesis, I address this methodological and empirical gap in a study of long-term change of Baltic Sea fisheries. In Paper I, we develop the concept of fishing style through integrating multivariate statistical analysis and in-depth interviews. We thereby identify an intermediate level of detail for analyzing social-ecological dynamics, embracing the case specific and context dependent approaches of the social sciences with the generalizable and quantifiable approaches from the natural sciences. In ...
Neuropsychology Concentration. If you want to be a counselor or behaviorist, but you would also like to learn more about the biological sciences, then the Neuropsychology Concentration might be for you. This track prepares students to work in the areas of neuropsychology and clinical psychology, where neuropsychological assessments are a growing and important aspect of clinical work. Carlow students studying in this area have a strong advantage over students in other neuroscience programs, because it is rare for undergraduates to have access to courses in neuropsychology, much less to learn under scholar-practitioners who regularly employ neuropsychological testing as part of their clinical practices. Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience with Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) Concentration. Carlow University and UPMCs Procirca are collaborating to offer the first of its kind Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience with Intraoperative Neurophysiological ...
