• Science
  • An inverse problem in science is the process of calculating from a set of observations the causal factors that produced them: for example, calculating an image in X-ray computed tomography, source reconstruction in acoustics, or calculating the density of the Earth from measurements of its gravity field. (wikipedia.org)
  • Physicists also contributed to the war effort, developing wireless communication technologies and sound-based methods of detecting U-boats, resulting in the first tenuous long-term connections between academic science and the military. (wikipedia.org)
  • detection
  • We believe SPAMS is the only detection instrument that can autonomously detect multiple types of threat agents and trigger alarms within less than a minute," said Matthias Frank, an LLNL physicist and one of the paper's co-authors. (nanowerk.com)
  • device
  • Harwell operated the largest, most powerful and most sophisticated fusion device, the ZETA (fusion reactor) machine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Further, the diamond nanowire is designed to overcome hurdles that have challenged other state-of-the-art systemssuch as those based on fluorescent dye molecules, quantum dots, and carbon nanotubesas the device can be readily replicated and integrated with a variety of nano-machined structures.

  • classical
  • Reducing death rates from this disease remains high on the Government's agenda, yet attention to the classical risk factors may not provide all the answers. (innovations-report.com)
  • The Task Force's analysis of the interaction of diet with emerging risk factors suggests that other risk factors (in addition to the classical ones) are also influenced by diet, in particular the type of dietary fat, and that greater emphasis on dietary fat quality (the overall fatty acid profile of the diet) is now justified, in the context of a varied diet, rich in fruit, vegetables and whole grain cereals.

  • time
  • He had details wrong but the basic concept right: a suite of equations that, when applied to measurements of heat, cloudiness, humidity and the like, could project how those factors would change over time. (nytimes.com)
  • We examined the plausibility of this and looked at why sating all our desires leads to a glorious utopia in Star Trek , but a ruined dystopia in The Time Machine . (blogspot.com)
  • The Time Machine does not. (blogspot.com)
  • By the late 1970s, newer machines had reached all of the conditions needed for practical fusion, although not at the same time and in a single reactor. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • A major Canadian-led global study has found that the vast majority of heart attacks may be predicted by nine easily measurable factors and that these factors are the same in virtually every region and ethnic group worldwide. (innovations-report.com)
  • The INTERHEART study, one of the largest case control studies examining the importance of heart disease risk factors, involved 15,152 individuals with their first heart attack and 14,820 others who did not have heart disease but who were of the same age, gender, and from the same city. (innovations-report.com)
  • That issue will also include a second article from the study on the factor of stress as a risk attribute for heart attacks. (innovations-report.com)
  • The system was first formally discussed in the December 1976 National Reference Designs Study, which examined the technical and economic feasibility of a machine with the design capacity of 20 TeV per proton. (wikipedia.org)
  • although
  • The Morlocks operate machines, although exactly what the purpose of the machines is is not made clear (beyond providing for the Eloi), and so are clearly more intelligent than the Eloi. (blogspot.com)
  • industrialised countries
  • European Research Commissioner Philippe Busquin said: "Around 25-33% of diseases in industrialised countries are due to environmental factors and we need to continue our efforts to better understand the underlying causes. (innovations-report.com)
  • order
  • the machine appeared to reach 5 million degrees, hot enough to be generating fusion at a low rate, within an order of two of the number of neutrons one would expect to generate at that temperature. (wikipedia.org)
  • natural
  • The resulting enhanced optical properties increases photon collection by nearly a factor of ten relative to natural diamond devices. (bio-medicine.org)
  • identify
  • With this new strategy the Commission expects to achieve a better understanding of the complex relationship between environment and health and to identify and reduce diseases caused by environmental factors. (innovations-report.com)
  • global
  • But the extent of the underground caverns is vast (likely global), and the machines equally so. (blogspot.com)
  • The Eloi have become so dependent on the products of the Morlocks that they have almost completely lost their own intelligence, while the Morlocks are still maintaining a global network of machines. (blogspot.com)
  • include
  • Other risk factors that have been reviewed by the Task Force include subtle alterations in types of fat other than cholesterol in the blood stream, factors associated with inflammation and with blood clotting, lowered resistance to oxidative stress, abnormal insulin responses, raised blood homocysteine and impaired functioning of blood vessels.
