Cartographies des connaissances scientifiques Comment cartographier les sciences? De la "Métaphysique" d'Aristote à la classification de Dewey, le classement des savoirs est un enjeu philosophique majeur. Raphaël Velt retrace les cartes historiques et s'intéresse à leurs utilisations. Article publié sur OWNISciences sous le titre, Les connaissances scientifiques à la carte Les techniques cartographiques peuvent s’appliquer à toutes les disciplines scientifiques, notamment en biologie où elles servent entre autres à décrire les réseaux trophiques (plus connus sous le nom réducteur de « chaînes alimentaires ») ainsi que les réseaux complexes d’interactions entre molécules. Les techniques cartographiques peuvent en effet décrire l’état des connaissances scientifiques ainsi que la dynamique de la recherche. Une brève histoire de l’organisation des connaissances Système figuré des connoissances humaines Cette classification vieille de deux siècles et demi semble aujourd’hui quelque peu désuète.

Hurricane Irene: 12 Ways to Track the Storm Online There's a lot of excitement on the East Coast this week. In addition to Tuesday's earthquake, Hurricane Irene will likely make an appearance this weekend in the Carolinas and possibly elsewhere. As I write this, Hurricane Irene is wreaking havoc on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, but who knows where it will go? Predicting the path of a hurricane is notoriously difficult work.

There might be as many as 5 Higgs Fields. It has been wondered why some particles have mass and some don't. The Higgs boson seems to work out quite well as an explanation. I thought I had posted these clips somewhere, but I'm not sure where. ‪What is a Higgs Boson?

Female Orgasm Captured In Brain Scan Animation Scientists have created the world's first video animation of the female orgasm, using a series of brain scan images. To capture the brain activity, researchers monitored a woman's brain as she lay in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner and stimulated herself. Psychologists at Rutgers University in New Jersey, where the study was conducted, hope the research will help them to understand the reasons why some men and women cannot reach sexual climax. Researcher, Professor Barry Komisaruk, who presented the findings at the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in Washington DC on Monday, told the Guardian: "The general aim of this research is to understand how the orgasm builds up from genital stimulation and what parts of the brain become recruited and finally build up into an orgasm." The animation is made up of a sequence of brain scans of Nan Wise, a 54-year-old PhD student and sex therapist in Komisaruk's lab. "We're using orgasm as a way of producing pleasure.

Haiyan, le typhon le plus puissant de l'histoire? Le typhon Haiyan qui a atteint les côtes des Philippines ce vendredi 8 novembre au matin est-il le plus violent de l’histoire? C’est l’avis de plusieurs météorologues, dont l’Américain Jeff Masters qui écrivait sur le blog de son site dans la nuit de jeudi à vendredi: «Trois heures avant qu’il atteigne la côte, le Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) estimait qu’Haiyan provoquait des vents de 314 km/h avec des pointes à 378 km/h, ce qui en fait le quatrième cyclone tropical le plus fort de l’histoire mondiale. La prochaine estimation d’intensité du JTWC, pour minuit TUC le 8 novembre, soit trois heures environ après qu’il ait atteint la côte, fait état de vents de 298 km/h. publicité Un avis partagé par un de ses confrères, Morgan Palmer, qui écrit sur Twitter, avec un peu plus de réserve: Do I think #Haiyan will be the strongest in recorded history to make landfall. On ne connaît pas pour le moment l’étendue des dégâts. An amazing comparison between #Katrina and #Haiyan.
