The magic and wonder of science. I have long been fascinated by science, which bored me rigid when I was a child.

The magic and wonder of science

Nowadays, I think it's slightly different – my six-year-old, Louise, now gets involved in discussions about the big bang versus God (she's come down on the side of the big bang) and my 11-year-old, Eva, appears happy to accept that time is a relative rather than absolute value, which is fairly obvious given her patchy ability to make it to the school gates on schedule. My elder daughters both took science subjects at A-level.

However, my children's interest is not reflected in the wider world. Last year, it was revealed that around half of all state schools did not have a single girl studying A-level physics. Ptak Science Books. JF Ptak Science Books Post 2205 This beautiful object is Le jeu de la sphere ou de l'univers selon Tyco Brahe [The game of the (celestial) sphere, or the universe according...] and was printed in 1661, and was an educational toy for the advancement of kids young and old. It was played with a spinner and took the players on a tour of the universe, compiled in 4 elements, 7 planets, the constellations of the Northern hemisphere, the Zodiac, then constellations of the Southern hemisphere, and then the Empyrean.

Presumably after playing at the game for some time the players would know something at least through familiarity.

There is an infinite number of prime numbers, and yet the prime numbers themselves do not display any apparent pattern, nor does any formula exist that generates prime numbers.

Ulam’s Prime Number Spiral

In fact, Legendre proved that there cannot be an algebraic function which always gives primes. However, prime numbers do exhibit a curious phenomenon when arranged in a spiral along with other consecutive integers, as in the figure to the right (in the figure, prime numbers are highlighted in white, twin primes are green, and Mersenne primes are red). The Phenomenon. Math. Wild Weird Fantastic Science Proven to Work. Intelligent Machines. The Missing Manual for the Future. Tim O’Reilly’s Four Cylinder Innovation Engine O’Reilly Media, is famous for is producing “missing manuals” for new technologies, but thinking of O’Reilly as just a publisher of books would be like saying Facebook is just a website (this came up in the discussion at Media Round Table at Web 2.0 Expo, NY, 2010).

The Missing Manual for the Future

In recent weeks, I managed to catch Tim O’Reilly at several events, Maker Faire, Web 2.0 Expo, Hadoop World, and the free webcast Tim did with John Battelle on The Battle for the Internet Economy (although Tim spoke several other times during this period!). It occurred to me, as I immersed myself in the depth and breadth of innovation showcased and discussed at these events that Tim O’Reilly, and the O’Reilly team, are creating The Missing Manual for the Future. As Tim puts it, we are “changing the world by spreading the knowledge of innovators.” Tim uses a quote from William Gibson to illuminate what is at the heart of the O’Reilly project: Citizen Science Alliance. Rewriting the Mind – We Are What We Think - Evolving Beings. The conscious mind is the part we are aware of – the part that does the thinking, worrying, planning and creating.

Rewriting the Mind – We Are What We Think - Evolving Beings

It is a tiny part of the structure; it is the subconscious that is the looming bulwark, a massive entity with incredible powers and potentials. Its unique characteristic is that it can create anything that we command it to create, by virtue of the thoughts we think. If you believe that you cannot achieve something, if you believe that you cannot have something, the subconscious will create conditions, so that your beliefs are proved. To transform your life, it is very important that you seek the help of the subconscious. Thus the negative thoughts that create our negative conditioning, can be overthrown by affirming their opposite. Collector's Guide - Maine Geological Survey. Green Housing. Straw Bale Construction.

That's according to WordStream, which put together an infograph to tell us how much technology pollutes the planet. How much does the energy it takes to run the Internet affect the world we live in?

This was one of the most common and abundant animals caught off the coast of Antarctica by the international research team aboard the BAS Royal Research Ship James Clark Ross. Sea cucumbers are important in processing the sediment (like earthworms on land) but their numbers worldwide have been threatened by recent fisheries. "Few people realize just how rich in biodiversity the Southern Ocean is – even a single trawl can reveal a fascinating array of weird and wonderful creatures as would be seen on a coral reef.

Tree of Life Web Project. The Tree of Life Web Project (ToL) is a collaborative effort of biologists and nature enthusiasts from around the world.

Tree of Life Web Project

On more than 10,000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about biodiversity, the characteristics of different groups of organisms, and their evolutionary history (phylogeny). Each page contains information about a particular group, e.g., salamanders, segmented worms, phlox flowers, tyrannosaurs, euglenids, Heliconius butterflies, club fungi, or the vampire squid. ToL pages are linked one to another hierarchically, in the form of the evolutionary tree of life. Starting with the root of all Life on Earth and moving out along diverging branches to individual species, the structure of the ToL project thus illustrates the genetic connections between all living things.
