Unfortunately the paper didn't include code to test it, so I decided to reproduce it here on the web! What is the doppler effect? First of all, what is the doppler effect? The doppler effect is a physical phenomenom which affects waves in motion. The standard example is the effect on a fire engine siren as it quickly drives past. This phenomenon actually has really wonderful applications in astronomy for figuring the speed at which galaxies are moving towards or away from us by looking at the frequency shift of light, but I digress.

Anyway, it's important to realize that the doppler effect would also occur if you were to run towards the siren, rather than the siren moving towards you. Measuring the doppler effect.

Cell Models. For life all cells have basic needs.

Cell Models

Cells have diverged in their structure and function to accommodate these survival requirements. Here are some KEY TERMS to help you think, explore and search for similarities and significant differences that have become the characteristics of eukaryote (animal, plant) and prokaryotic (bacteria) cells. Examples might be searching: eukaryote prokaryote reproduction or animal plant cell energy. Reproduction / cell division Energy trapping, storage and consumption Form / shape / structure Cell specialization Compartmentalization of cell functions Communication within and beyond the cell Cell / organism survival.

PROJECT DRAWDOWN - If it is happening, it is possible.

Drawdown is a book, a database, a basis for curricula, a digital platform, and a movement. It defines and describes 117 impeccably researched, “state-of-the-shelf” technologies, both practical and social, that will reduce greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. Drawdown delineates a path to carbon neutrality and reduction in the atmosphere using technologies that are already in place, and describes the beneficial financial and social impact they deliver over the next thirty years.

It is also a mirror held up to the world about what we are doing about greenhouse gases, with the underlying motto that- if it is happening, it is possible. Drawdown will arrive in the fall of 2015. American Museum of Natural History. JIBO.

Small World of Words Project. Welcome to the small world of words project!

Small World of Words Project

Last modified: April 16, 2014 Voor Nederlandstalige informatie, klik hier The small world of words project is a large-scale scientific study that aims to build a map of the human lexicon in the major languages of the world and make this information widely available. In contrast to a thesaurus or dictionary, this lexicon provides insight into what words and what part of their meaning are central in the human mind. This way it enables psychologists, linguists, neuroscientists and others to test new theories about how we represent and process language.

Current Project The project started at the Experimental Psychology department of the University in Leuven (Belgium) in 2003 and already resulted in the largest available network of word associations in Dutch (over 5M responses) and English (over 1M responses).
