Places & Spaces: Mapping Science

Places & Spaces: Mapping Science
Exhibit Info See what the exhibit entails, plus how to host it at your venue. Places & Spaces: Mapping Science is meant to inspire cross-disciplinary discussion on how to best track and communicate human activity and scientific progress on a global scale. It has two components: the physical part supports the close inspection of high quality reproductions of maps for display at conferences and education centers; the online counterpart provides links to a selected series of maps and their makers along with detailed explanations of how these maps work. The exhibit is a 10-year effort. Each year, 10 new maps are added resulting in 100 maps total in 2014.

‘Visual Vivencias’ to understand subjectivity and affective connection in young children In order to understand young children, in this case, the focus child, Silvana’s subjective sense and how she relates to others, visual narratives are used to account and exemplify how babies make affective connections. Affective connections with significant others are made through symbolic senses and productions through gestures, gaze, touch, postures and tone of voice babies connect to others. The following case examples were selected because as Vygotsky (1998) explains they were identified as being of unique type, were nonverbal interactions and forced a maximum interaction between adults and infants. Case example 1: affective connection

Top services de cartes géographiques Google Earth est un service de géolocalisation très avancé et pratique. Il a attiré l'attention non seulement des particuliers mais aussi des entreprises et des chaines de télévision qui y font recours quand elles ont besoin de localiser un évènement dont elles ne possèdent pas les images. Mais tout cela n’empêche qu'il y ait d'autres applications de géolocalisation alternatives. Dans cet article on va citer ces alternatives qu'on peut essayer en parallèle. Histcite HistCite is a software package used for bibliometric analysis and information visualization. It was developed by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information and the inventor of important information retrieval tools such as Current Contents and the Science Citation Index.[1] Purpose[edit] The main purpose of the software is to make it easier for individuals to perform bibliometric analysis and visualization tasks. Bibliometric analysis is the use of the bibliographic information (titles, authors, dates, author addresses, references, etc.) that describe published items to measure and otherwise study various aspects of a specific field of scholarly endeavor.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

getSharedSiteSession?rc=1&redirect= Background and aims Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is a well-established method for the removal of neoplastic polyps throughout the GI tract. EMR typically involves insufflation of the lumen using air or CO2, followed by submucosal lifting of a polyp to minimize the risk of deep tissue injury and perforation, followed by hot-snare polypectomy. Underwater endoscopic mucosal resection (UEMR) is a new technique that uses water to enable lesion visualization in a lumen that is not distended by air or CO2, followed by piecemeal hot-snare resection of large mucosally-based neoplasms.

Citation analysis tool – Google Scholar This is one of a series of posts describing tools that are available for citation analysis. For other tools see here. Google Scholar is the ‘academic’ version of the popular Google search engine. It covers scholarly literature from a range of sources, including “academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites” (Google, 2011). What Google doesn’t tell us are the names of these sources (i.e. which publishers, journals etc. are harvested) or the frequency of updates.

Science sheds light on 250-year-old literary controversy The social networks behind one of the most famous literary controversies of all time have been uncovered using modern networks science. Since James Macpherson published what he claimed were translations of ancient Scottish Gaelic poetry by a third-century bard named Ossian, scholars have questioned the authenticity of the works and whether they were misappropriated from Irish mythology or, as heralded at the time, authored by a Scottish equivalent to Homer. Now, in a joint study by Coventry University, the National University of Ireland, Galway and the University of Oxford, published today in the journal Advances in Complex Systems, researchers have revealed the structures of the social networks underlying the Ossian's works and their similarities to Irish mythology. The researchers mapped the characters at the heart of the works and the relationships between them to compare the social networks found in the Scottish epics with classical Greek literature and Irish mythology.
