Is Science Education Relevant?

. Until recently, however, we have failed to acknowledge and attempt to map thoroughly the learners’attitudes towards their science classes and towards sci­ ence and technology in general. At least two ... to notice is that mean values in general are well above 2.5 indicat­ ing an overall large degree of acknowledgement of the impor­ tance of science and technology in creating better living condi­ tions

The Efficiency of Linda for General Purpose Scientific Programming

, however, are of little value unless Linda programs execute efficiently. The goal of this article is to demonstrate that Linda programs are efficient making Linda an effective general purpose tool for ... interaction of processes). In Linda, coordination takes place through six oper­ ations that manipulate an associative, virtual shared memory. This coordination mechanism is both simple and general making it

Editorial: Relaunching Cultural Science

Science, Policy and the Developing Frontiers of International Law

SCIENCE HAS ALWAYS BEEN a most important, if not the most important, agent of legal change. The hydraulic engineering achievements of ancient Egypt and China not only determined the laws of land ... structure of society. Where would the law of the sea be without the development of ships and the science of navigation? In a lighter view too we can imagine chariots creating traffic problems (and laws) on

Climate Change: From Science to Practice

Purpose of Review Climate change poses a significant threat to human health. Understanding how climate science can be translated into public health practice is an essential first step in enabling robust ... water, nutritious food, and shelter, with rapid changes having serious consequences for their health and wellbeing. Indeed, climate change threatens the last 50 years of gains made in public health [ 3

Applications of General Residual Power Series Method to Differential Equations with Variable Coefficients

This paper is devoted to studying the analytical series solutions for the differential equations with variable coefficients. By a general residual power series method, we construct the approximate ... . Introduction In the field of science and engineering, many physical phenomena can be described by differential equations with variable coefficients. For example, some physical problems in inhomogeneous media [1

How social science should complement scientific discovery: lessons from nanoscience

This article examines the state of social science of science, particularly nanoscience. It reviews what has been done and offers a series of constructive criticisms. It examines some of the problems ... discovery is critically important for self-evaluation of the cases instant and the future of the social science of science in general. Emerging science has become a term to describe what happens when

The foundation of RE materials science is 4f chemistry, which ... dictates the chemical reactions towards the development of novel RE materials. The recent advance in 4f chemical bonding [7] will stimulate the development of RE materials science. In 4f chemistry, the

Indicator system for managing science, technology and innovation in universities

The formulation of standardized measurement indicators of science, technology and innovation at the international, regional and institutional level remains a continuing need. Although there are

Introduction: systematicity, the nature of science?
