The Science Museum: Not Just A Tourist Hotspot

Sir William Bragg, the eminent physicist, once stated, "The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them." The profundity and truthfulness of this statement seems nowhere more relevant than in the National Science Museum in London - one of the country's most loved historical institutions. As part of the National Museum of Science and Industry, the Science Museum is more than a tourist attraction for London's many visitors: it preserves some of the world's most impressive scientific artifacts, while constantly showcasing new talent and the latest in scientific innovations from across the globe.

The Science Museum first opened in 1857 from the collection of the Royal Society of Arts, as well as surplus items from the Great Exhibition of 1851 to promote the achievements of science and technology. Initially created as part of the South Kensington Museum, the museum went through several incarnations before being officially titled the Science Museum in 1885.

Today, the Science Museum holds over 300,000 exhibits. Its most famous items include Stevenson's Rocket, an early steam locomotive built by George Stevenson in 1829, James Watson's model of DNA and Charles Babbage's Difference engine, a special-purpose mechanical digital calculator. The Museum itself is made up of a series of permanent and temporary galleries, including 'Space', a historical gallery that tells the story of human space exploration, 'Flight', which contains a number of aeroplanes and helicopters, and 'Making the Modern World', a new gallery which houses some of the museums' most iconic collections.

Since December 2001, the museum has been free to all visitors, and is therefore a popular attraction for families in Britain. In fact, the Science Museum also organises "Science Night" - described as an "all-night extravaganza with a scientific twist". On these evenings, up to 380 children aged between 8 and 11 are allowed to spend an evening in the museum performing enjoyable, science-based activities before being allowed to spend the night among the exhibits. In the morning, the participating children can awake to breakfast in the museum, more scientific-based fun and an IMAX film - an altogether unforgettable scientific experience!

But the Science Museum doesn't simply provide a place for children to learn and play amongst some of the world's most important scientific developments: it also opens up forums for controversial scientific debate. The Dana Centre, a groundbreaking urban bar and café, was opened in 2003 in an annex to the Museum, and is currently the UK's only dedicated scientific discussion venue for adults.

As an integral part of the National Museum of Science and Industry (which includes York's National Railway Museum and the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford), the Science Museum plays a crucial part in the scientific education of much of Britain's population.

If you're hoping to visit the Science Museum, you're sure to find a range of London hotels located in South Kensington through a variety of online travel sites. So choose to spend a day - or a night - in the Science Museum, not just because it provides fun for children and adults alike but because, as an institution of scientific progress and learning, it's virtually unparalleled.

A Students Prelude to Management and Computer Science

A friend of mine said, "I've visited your web sites, viewed your articles, and took a look at your background." It's apparent to me, you do not have a background in Information Technology (Computer Science) or Business Intelligence as a field of study acknowledging Computer Science.'

I wondered, does one have to have a background in IT or BI to qualify as a professional in the industry; or does it take a simple interest?

AutoCad, C Language, Visual Basic, Power Point, Java Script, Excel, Access, Cobol, Word (Microsoft Suite), Data Entry/Processing, DOS, Fortran, Lotus Notes, Management Information Systems, HTML, and Management cover a broad spectrum within the beginning or preparation in the world of IT / BI. The eclectic value of the specialization in one or more of this study group is the mastery and/or understanding of all.

About a week ago, I was contacted, recruited, and enrolled in a four-year college program. The recruiter was adept at what she was doing and I went along with the schedule as presented. I continually asked, "How am I going to pay for these college courses?" When the prepared documentation was submitted for the finalization process, it all came down to dollars and cents. The financial aid person finally made contact with me assuming that I was a prime candidate for the 'Stafford Loan!' This is a general education loan designed for students to enroll in a given college. I explained to the administrator that I am without money, have no wish to establish a loan (for anything), unemployed, and not to age is also a factor. With the ability to complete the required studies, I would be done in less than a year. I have three years of accredited college courses with an Associate Degree. I estimated that I would be paying off on a student loan for more than a few years, if I landed a job. I will soon be sixty years of age. Burdened with an educational loan that would probably be on my plate well after I'm sixty-five, I asked the recruiter and financial aid worker, "Do you really believe that I would take out a loan for an extravagant amount of money in the hopes that I would get my age?" Even if I were to start up a new business, a loan would be a bit risky...improbable. It would have been a good thing if I were able to get back into the classroom.

Whatever happened to the H1-B Program, The NAFTA Treaty, or the "Financial Hardship" Claus with the "Obama Letter" and/or ex-workers that are forced into the utilization/awarding of UC Benefits?

I was promptly dropped from the student roles by the four-year college.

Meanwhile, I am offering data that may help anyone who is interested in the pursuit of computer science knowledge. Should you be attempting to enroll in computer science and management courses, this information will give you a leg up on what is entailed in this multi-faceted field of study. Many schools will teach these courses as pre-requisite(s) to advanced courses in a four-year college. Even if you are not enrolled or intending to enroll in school but only interested in how it all works, the limited amount of information that is detailed in this message will probably aid you in your preparation and/or research.

The outlined courses are:

COBOL (Common Business Oriented Language):

COBOL was first released in the 1960s as a joint venture of industry, universities, and the United States Government. COBOL's purpose was to provide a high-level computer programming language for the business world. COBOL directly addresses the basic needs of information processing while being easy to use as well. (Take a look at SQL).

COBOL, BASIC, C, JAVA, and PASCAL are examples of high-end level computer language(s). A low-level language is a programming language requiring knowledge of a computers' internal components...that are non-transferable.

Auto Cad (Computer Assisted Design):

2D (Dimensional) drafting tasks, allow you to get acquainted with computer assisted designing. Auto Cad is designed to assist you in the creation of landscape plans, including setting up layers, adding text and dimensions while making modifications. You can create electrical diagrams using symbols and attributes.

You are taught how to extract the attributes into an Excel Spreadsheet Program. Boolean operations and modeling construct and analyze complex 2D shapes and images for isometric drafting, a method for simulating 3D drawings and Lt drawings. Explaining the use of Auto Cad, one can learn to embed DWF (Drawing Web format) files in web pages. An overview of Auto Cad and progressive projects teaches you how to create drawing projects, landscape plans, and/or electrical schematics. The Internet related topics include direct access to particular web sites, opening and saving, drawings on the web, and embedding DWF files in a web page,

C Language:

The available text on C Language enables the student to be taught both a rational approach to program development and an introduction to ANSI C. Because the first goal is primary, a disciplined approach to solving problems and applying widely accepted software engineering methods to design program solutions as cohesive, readable, and reusable modules. ANSI C (American National Standards Institute), is a standardized, industrial-strength programming language known for its power and portability. C Language helps the student consolidate their understanding of pointers as arrays, output parameters, and file accesses. Just prior to their exploration of the role of the pointer in dynamic memory allocation.

C Language is widely perceived as a language to be tackled only after one has learned the fundamental of programming in some other friendlier language. Designers as a vehicle for programming the UNIX operating system, C Language found its original clientele among programmers who understood the complexities of the operating system and the underlying machine concepts that are not in the syllabus of a standard introductory programming course. C Language is for computer science majors and/or students of a wide range of other IT/BI disciplines.

Visual Basic:

The easiest and fastest way to write 32-Bit Windows-Based programs is the Microsoft Visual Basic Programming System. One can learn to work with ActiveX controls, compiler options, and new development tools. You can master programming fundamentals, including variables, decision structures, loops, and functions. Creating custom dialog boxes, clocks, menus, animation effects, managing text files, encryption, and sorting algorithms are learned through the utilization of Visual Basic Programming. VB also adds dimension and automation to integrate Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, and other features into an application. Other examples of the integrational power of Visual Basic include the ability to explore ActiveX controls that process RTF (Rich Text Format), run videos, display progress information, and play audio compact discs (CDs). You can also call the memory management function in the Windows API (Application Program Interface), download FTP (File Transfer Protocol), and HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) files from the Internet and design DHTML (Dynamic Hyper Text Markup Language) pages, exploit ActiveX data objects (ADO) with learned skills from Visual Basic.

Power Point:

Power Point is a computer presentation graphics package. It gives you everything you need to produce a professional-looking presentation, i.e., word processing, outlining, drawing, graphing, and presentation management tools. A formal presentation to a large audience using 35mm slides of a more intimate presentation in a small conference room using overhead monitors, and/or an email presentation - Power Point has it all! The user is empowered with an outline to help organize his/her thoughts, an on-screen slide show with special effects such as animated bullet points, speakers notes, and audience hand-outs. Users of Power Point create color schemes, masters, and templates...there are ways to create the look you want for your presentation.

Java Script:

It is supposedly easy according to some Java Script authors. To start a simple script that makes cool things happen on your web addition to more complicated stuff, as you need it.

Because the web is a dynamic medium, page designers want their pages to interact with the user. It soon became obvious that HTML was insufficient to handle the demand. Java Script was invented by Netscape to control the web browser, and add pizzazz and interactivity to your web pages.


Objectives - to reach the fundamentals of Microsoft Excel, to expose students to examples of the computer as a useful tool, to develop an exercise - oriented approach that will allow students to learn by example and to encourage independent study. Students are introduced to Excel terminology, the excel window, and basic characteristics of a worksheet and workbook. The applications include entering text, numbers, selecting a range using the auto sum button, copying using the fill handle, changing font size, bolding, centering across columns and rows (columns and fields), the auto format command, charting using the chart wizard, and the auto calculate area through-out the grid of columns and rows of the Excel spreadsheet. Any form of accounting, be it business, personal, or otherwise, Excel is a must study program for recording, charting, and analytics.


Microsoft Access includes two tools that provide assistance in helping to refine the design on an Access database. The GUI (Graphic User Interface) Development Environment of Microsoft Access, with menu commands, tool bars, buttons, tool tips, examples and help screens make development easier. Sound, quality relational database design and development requires considerable knowledge and expertise, no matter what the platform. Access, a Relational Data Base Management System, has the ability to manage data files from a single database. A must study course for any and all Data Base Administration, Business Administration, Secretarial Administration, and Computer Science students.

Word (CMOU - Certified Microsoft Office User):

Creating and Editing word documents; Wizards and Templates to create a Cover letter and Resume; creating a Research Paper with a Table; creating Web Pages; creating a document with a Title Page and Tables; generating Form Letters, Mailing Labels, and Envelopes; creating a Professional Newsletter, and using Word Art to add Special Text Effects to a Word document.

DOS (Direct Operating System):

Before Windows, there was DOS. With just a few mouse clicks, any Windows PC can revert to the original "Disk Operating System." Under DOS, all program files are named with either a COM, and EXE, or a BAT ending (called a filename extension). The DIR (Directory) Command is used to find files by name as well as to locate files in other Sub Directories on a disk. The output of the DIR command shows a list of files on a disk. The list has five columns: the file's name, the file's extension (part of the name), the file's size (in bytes or characters), the date the file was created or last modified, and the time of the last modification (changes).

Lotus Notes:

Lotus Notes is a Document-Centric Database Management System. Lotus Notes is a Cross-Platform, Secure, Distributed Document-Oriented Database, Messaging Framework and Rapid Application Development Environment that includes Per-Built Applications. Lotus Notes is an Integrated Desktop Client Option for accessing business email, and Groupware System. Lotus Notes operates as the Client Side of a Client - Server Application.

Fortran (A Scientific Language):

Formula Translation - was designed to allow easy translation of math formulas into code of High-End Language. Fortran was designed n the 1950s. It used the first compiler (A program that translates source code into object code) ever developed. Fortran was designed to be a programming language that would be suitable for a wide variety of applications while being easy to learn

Fortran expresses mathematical functions as it permits severely complex mathematical functions to be expressed similarly to regular algebraic notations.

RDBMS (Relational Database Management Systems):

RDBMS was designed for the business organization. It requires extremely careful planning, setting up and maintenance. A database is a collection of information that's related to a particular subject or purpose, such as tracking customer orders or maintaining a music collection. If your database isn't stored on a computer, or only parts of it are, you may be tracking information from a variety of sources that you have to coordinate or organize yourself. Access can manage all or your information from a single database file, within the file, divide your data into separate storage containers called tables; view, add, and update by using forms; find and retrieve just the data you want by using queries; and analyze or print data in specific layout by using reports. RDBMS Systems allow users to view, update, or analyze the database's data from multiple locations. When the data is updated, it is automatically updated everywhere it appears.

Information Management Systems (M.I.S.):

MIS combines tech with business to get users the information they need to do their jobs Better Smarter and Faster. MIS Systems are planned systems of the collecting, processing, storing, and disseminating data in the form of information that is needed to carry out the functions of management. The system(s) consist of people, equipment, and procedures to gather, sort, analyze, evaluate, and distribute needed, timely, and accurate information to decision makers - "The Right Information to the Right People At The Right Time!"

MIS is actually Information Technology Management and arguably not considered to be computer science. Armed with this information, the contingent, aspiring, Computer Science, Business Administration, Secretarial Sciences, Computer Hardware (A plus), and Accounting Student(s) will be prepared to face the challenges the IT/BI industry and the respective colleges have to dish out.

My friend and other cynics have caused me to wonder after comments were made. I wondered, what does it take...what form of study qualifies as a computer science student with a major in IT/BI? Well, I've studied all of the aforementioned programs and/or courses with an acceptable level of understanding, study, utilization, and practice...not to mention all of the other technological software/programs, articles, periodical reports, and white-papers involved in the learning process? Is it due to my background and experience in the Transportation / Hospitality / Customer Service Industry for a good many years? Or was it in fact... IT/BI Study/Research was secondary? "One Never Knows...Do One?"

What would it take to qualify as having a background in the field of "IT/BI - Computer Science" after studying all of those courses?

The point is...GAINED KNOWLEDGE!

Til next time...

Technology and the Environment

To one who has seen the adverse effects of some technologies on the environment the question how does technology protect the environment? May have only one answer - it doesn't! The reality however is that from the onset science and technology has been at the forefront of ensuring the environment is safeguarded. Science is a weapon through which good or evil can be done depending on the consciences of those who are using it. There are lot of ways in which technology has been used to restore the integrity of the environment.

From reversing the damage done by the chlorofluorocarbons (c.f.c's) on the ozone layer to minimizing the harmful effects of the greenhouse gases which bring about global warming science has played a key role in safeguarding the environment. Through science machines that were discovered to be releasing c.f.c's into the atmosphere were removed from the market and in there place others were invented a case in point the refrigerators of old and modern refrigerators that are CFC free. Through scientific research it has been discovered that presence of trees and vegetation greatly decrease the amount of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide by absorbing them to use in their natural processes such as photosynthesis which has led to more environmental awareness

Advancements in the scientific process of wastage disposal have led to the discovery and adoption of new and better ways for carrying out refuse and sewerage disposal. Recycling has today become a major activity the world over which has been through the intervention of science. This has led to conservation of resources for example purifying sewerage into clean and safe drinking water and the recycling of polythene into usable plastics.

Use of simple equipment such as garbage cans for disposing litter and recycling of natural waste for instance using vegetable waste as manure may seem inconsequential but in the long term the benefits are left for all to see.

Machines that in the past used to release a lot of toxic fumes into the atmosphere like cars, manufacturing plants and factories and mining apparatus have nowadays been modified to use fuel that does not release harmful gases in the atmosphere. Through the discovery of better ways of making fuel like from use of sugar cane processing the harmful effects of polluting gases have been greatly reduced. Use of more efficient energy systems and means of disposal is how technology protects the environment. Continued scientific research and study into the environmental hazards that abound keeps on creating awareness about what is right and wrong, what should be avoided or done more all in the interest of protecting the environment.

The use of solar panels to harness the sun's energy, application of thermal and wind energy has provided the necessary incentive and alternative to the over use of oil and petroleum as the primary source of fuel which has led to better use of natural resources and the reduction of air pollution from toxic fumes. From these few elaborate examples its clear how science and technology is protecting the environment.

Effective Marketing: Driven by Math and Creativity

Ah, yes. The old left brain versus right brain argument when it comes to effective marketing. The question of what truly drives effective marketing attempts to pit actuaries against Mad Men. Madison Avenue against Number Crunchers. Artists versus Scientists. It is an interesting debate, and one that I have seen probably since the very first day I entered the business world. So which one rules: creativity or math, design or analytics?

I, for one, am tired of this debate. I think it is an outdated and irrelevant conversation, quite frankly. If there has been one thing that the digital age has taught us is that marketers need both skill sets. They don't just need a passing interest in both, they actually need to LIVE in both areas. I believe the days of being a really good direct marketer, or numbers person, OR a high-flying studio executive at a major ad agency are gone. Marketers, and especially good Chief Marketers, need to own both personalities and skill sets.

The reason I believe this so strongly is that digital marketing, done via the internet, mobile devices or social media, presents an amazing opportunity to create marketing that is supremely visually appealing and impactful, yet steeped in analytics and measurement. I'm not simply referring to impressions, clicks or sales. The ability to measure how people interact with your advertisement, what they really think of it and what happens after they interact with it exists like never before, and as technology evolves even more, math, science and creativity will intersect on a much greater scale.

Think about it this way: twenty years ago, advertisers could run billboards in Times Square or place a great ad on top of a taxi. The advertiser (or agency) really had no way of knowing how people view the ad, much less how they interacted with it. Sure, there have always been vague (at best) techniques for measuring advertising done outdoors, on TV, or on radio. But largely, advertisers were left in the dark when it comes to really knowing without a shred of doubt what the real impact was on the millions of dollars they were spending. Professionally, this was me for many years.

On the flip side, you had direct marketers, direct mailers and direct response infomercial marketers who were less concerned with aesthetics of their ads but almost wholly consumed with numbers and metrics. Anything that moved, they measured. A few creative tweaks here and there were necessary for most marketing campaigns, but largely those tweaks were made in order to measure the impact of the changes and how those related to direct sales. Professionally, this was also me for many years.

Enter the age we're in today which is far more digitally-based, and I believe we are on the verge of a marketing utopia. One indisputable fact is that a lot more investment from marketers and advertisers is getting put into interactive channels (online, mobile, etc). This is because it is where consumers ARE these days. They are online. They are on Facebook. They are blogging. They spend most of their time in front of a computer screen, and good marketers always want to be where their audience is.

It is a burgeoning marketing utopia because marketers that were on either side of the two scenarios I painted above are being forced to merge together and intersect. And why not? Creative folks most consumed with a compelling design and execution now actually have some more data at their fingertips to stoke their creative fires even more. I fail to see how that is a bad thing, in fact it should be embraced. Number crunchers have the benefit of technology at their backs, which allows them a lot more creative license to become more, well, creative rather than spending a majority of time or energy plowing through spreadsheets or figuring out how to slice and dice their list or database differently. Automation is a great thing for the direct response types because it provides speed and ease; think of all the time they can now spend on creativity and messaging.

The truth is that if you're a marketer who wants to have a long career in your profession, you need to be masters of both domains. You need to be more creative than the next marketing professional. You need to have a deep grasp of numbers, analytics and all the metrics available to you. As people's lives become more and more digital, possessing one set of skills but not the other will leave you behind the competition. My advice? Embrace the right and left brains and understand that they intersect now, and will forever, for truly effective marketers.

Status of Science in India

At the time when India gained independence the country was devoid of science and technology. The shattered economy gave nothing except low agricultural production, low number of medical facilities, and undeveloped infrastructure. All these issues became hurdles in the growth of the civilization in all aspects. But there was one thing that the country gained in terms and that was the love, humanity, patriotism, and brotherhood instilled within every Indian heart. With this most significant inheritance, the nation was able to defy all hurdles.

The people of India came together to introduce the country to innovation, advancement, science, and technology. Various initiatives and measures were taken in order to surge ahead and achieve dramatic success in the field. Every citizen of the country strived to achieve new formulas and methods to list the country's name in the high-tech global world.

To foster the significance of science and inspect its status in the country, National Science Day is celebrated every year on February 28. The day commemorates the incredible introduction of Raman Effect discovered by Sir C.V Raman. This was discovered in the year 1928 and Raman was honored with the Nobel Prize in 1930 for the same. This scientific innovation further gave birth to Raman Spectroscopy which is considered to be the most powerful and advantageous tool for various scientific applications.

Since Independence, the country has traveled a long journey in various development activities. Significantly, science has become a key driver of Indian economy. However, there are certain disturbing trends that are eventually reducing the significance of science in the country.

Many students in the present day are switching over from science filed to other lucrative options. The key factors contributing to this switch over are low wages and lack of opportunities. Then there are factors that are pushing behind the essence of research in technology, students are learning only the text available in the huge books. Neither the teachers nor the students are bothered to take extra initiative to do a thorough research and gift something new to the country. There are only a few counted numbers who still show their participation in such activities. To improve this scenario, the country definitely needs renowned scientists and skilled professors. The infrastructure, the financial help, and the interest of students are all taking a backseat.

To strengthen the economy, all these factors have to be pushed forward to enable the nation surge ahead in the techno-world. There is a need to reform the education system, increase the pay package of doctors and scientists, demand liberal funding by the government, and improve infrastructure of science universities. The status of science can be improved by these simple measures and initiatives whilst maintaining the pace with the changing times.

Benefits Of Innovated Science Lab Equipment In Schools

There are countless reasons why schools should provide their students with innovative science lab equipment. After all, almost every part of their lives is or has been affected by science. From the local weather to the food they eat, it plays a role.

When school labs are not outfitted with up-to-date materials, supplies, and equipment, it will adversely affect the progress of scientific advances yet to come. The advances in medicine and technology would not be possible without the brilliant and dedicated scientists and researchers. Many of them developed their lifelong interest in the field as soon as they performed their first experiment in the lab of their school.

The intention of most high school curriculum is to ready its students for working or prepare them for higher education. Most colleges and universities demand completion of laboratory courses to be eligible for admission. Studying in this discipline will not only increase their literacy in the field, but also provide a foundation for a future in the scientific and technological labor force.

The discovery of a treatment or a cure for a debilitating or life-threatening disease might never be realized if the personnel shortages that research labs are experiencing now continue. To interest and encourage students in science and related subjects, it is essential for schools to provide a well-equipped laboratory. Being able to design and make new materials, and investigate the things that make up the world around them will prevent the loss of future scientists.

This discipline is different from any other course a student takes in school. It involves seeing, handling, and manipulating real objects and materials. Teaching it requires being in a perpetual state of show and tell. The knowledge one attains in a class is ineffectual without learning about the methods and processes of research.

Science education would not be about science if it did not include opportunities to learn the process. Schools that pride themselves on their innovative approach to teaching know that classroom instruction combined with laboratory experience derives the best results. Evidence shows this method increases mastery of the subject, aids in developing scientific reasoning, and cultivates interest in this subject.

The laboratory provides students the opportunity to interact directly with data gathered from the material world. Here is where they will learn how to use tools and experiment with different techniques for collecting data. They will be using models and implement scientific theories. Experiences like this will help improve overall scientific literacy and prepare the next generation of scientists and engineers.

The benefit of having innovative science lab equipment in the schools is immeasurable. However, an important one is the critical role it plays in the lives of students. Besides the hands-on experience in lab research and experimentation, students also learn how to make a scientific argument. Writing, reviewing information, using the right language, constructing a logical line of reasoning, and responding to analytical comments are a few of the skills necessary to do this. These are valuable skills to have because of their usefulness in any discipline.

Renaissance Science and the Overpopulation Problem

The 5th Century BCE philosopher, Anaxagoras, was a central figure in the development of the Classical Greek Era's life science. The Harvard/NASA High Energy Astrophysics Division Library has published papers arguing that this life science was based upon fractal geometrical logic. During the 5th Century St Augustine classified such pagan life science mathematics as being the work of the devil. This effectively denied its re-emergence until the present time when the fractal life energy theories of the engineer Buckminster Fuller, derived from Plato's banished mathematical research, were observed functioning within the DNA. Fuller's work became basic to a new medical life science institute established by the three 1996 Nobel Laureates in Chemistry. Fuller's world view completely challenged the fixed world view's understanding of universal energy.

Plato had written that engineers who did not understand about his spiritual engineering principles were like warlike barbarians who were not fit to be called philosophers. As ethical mathematics has been divorced from life science physics for almost sixteen hundred years it is necessary to explain that for centuries, well meaning aesthetical considerations were no real substitute for the lost Greek ethical physics principles. This statement demands authoritative reference, as it is rather offensive to demean honest attempts by scientists who strove to act or think ethically.

In 1990, Edward Husserl's publication on pure logic listed the mathematician, Bernard Bolzano, as one of the world's greatest logicians. German scientists recently rediscovered Bolzano's Theory of science, which had been constructed by correcting the Aesthetics theories of Emmanuel Kant. Through computer extrapolation they discovered that Bolzano had based his correction upon fractal logic. In 1991 the Cambridge University Press published the German scientist J Alberto Coffa's reaction to Bolzano's correction of Kant's work. In the book entitled The Semantic Tradition from Kant to Carnap. To the Vienna Station, edited by Linda Wessels is the following paragraph "Kant had not even seen these problems; Bolzano solved them. And his solutions were made possible by, and were the source of, a new approach to the content and character of a priori knowledge." Therefore, it can be reasonably argued that Plato's ethical spiritual engineering principles should not have been banished from science in the first place.

Our present scientific world view is barbaric because it is incorrectly governed by an energy law that prohibits the existence of any life science being linked to the functioning of universal ethics based upon fractal logic. We can now compare the old engineering logic regarding solutions to, say, the problem of overpopulation, to the new fractal logic life science. Thomas Malthus' famous Population essay was based upon the religious teachings of St Thomas Aquinas, the thrust of which became synonymous with the entropic second law of thermodynamics, now governing all of science.

Charles Darwin cited Mathus's Population paper as the basis for his life science theory of evolution. A commonly accepted entropic solution to the problem of overpopulation is that nature will find a way to cull the population. On the other hand fractal logic is now presenting various reality models that allude to new technologies providing more ethical considerations.

Animal and vegetable fatty acids combined with minerals in prehistoric clays to form liquid crystal optical mineral soaps. When subjected to cosmic radiation crystalline structures evolved, defying the logic of present day entropic life science. For example, jasper crystal growth produces Mumford fractals. Mainstream science accepts that a property of fractal logic is that it extends to infinity. Plato's spiritual or holographic optical engineering principles appear to have been instigated by nature for some completely unknown future purpose. Human Swarm Technology alludes to various possibilities beyond the ability of modern science to even begin to comprehend, echoing Emmanuel Kant's inability to conceive of the problems that Bolzano solved.

Population may soon inherit ethical technologies anticipated by nature to allow population to disperse into aspects of holographic reality that holds infinite human survival potential.

Under The Surface Of Technology Lies The Domain Of The Telecommunications Analyst

Sitting in their comfy office, cheerfully using the latest in technology and computers, or even just an electric typewriter and calculator, most worker don't realize what's all around them. Hidden in the walls, behind the plaster and paint, is a veritable spider's web of wires that hook up not only their computers, but telephones, TVs and just about every other communications device there is. Without all that wiring, we'd be down to snail mail and the town crier. Keeping these systems in top form is the domain of the telecommunications analyst.

At his or her core, a telecommunications analyst is a technician who is responsible for a company's telecommunications systems. Because of the vastness of the field, they are forced to specialize in four main sectors: wired, wireless, satellite and other. It's a field that is going through incredible change almost every day thanks to the introduction of such devices as smart phones, notepads and more.

In the corporate world, they are tasked with the acquisition, installation, modification and upgrading of a company or agency's communications systems. They do not create the content that's being communicated, but they have a say in how this content is delivered, from landline through over-the-air. While your typical phone repairman can get away with just a high school degree and job certification, most analysts have gone on to get BS degrees, primarily in electrical engineering or computer science.

Those interested in the field should come in with strong math, science and similar analytical backgrounds. They should look for an in-person or online college that has a strong engineering and/or computer science program. They should also sit down with a career advisor as this is considered a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) field, and is open to more than the usual financial aid opportunities.

From there, most employers tend to be located in urban areas, where there is the most such equipment. They usually end up working for one of two ends of the industry; the communications provider - such as a telephone or a cable company, or the end user - such as a major corporation or agency.

The salary range does tend to be wide, and much dependent on what sector of the industry this professional winds up working in. The average wage is about $69,000 a year. Still, the typical Bell curve on salary ranges from the low 40s up to over $100,000 a year.

There is currently a lot of change also going on in the profession. The industry is moving away from copper-based wiring to fiber optics. Public radio bandwidth is also moving away from analog to digital. If that isn't enough, satellite communications is still a growing sector. This is making many telecommunications analysts set up an online college subscription in order to stay on top of their particular specialty.

National Book Festival 2010 Hits the Science and Technology Topics

Recently at September 25, 2010, the 10th National Book festival 2010 took place on the National Mall in Washington DC. Science and Technology books draw the attention of the visitors. Some books written by the famous writers were the hot topic of the entire festival. In the festival some writers gave presentations followed by the question and answer session. This was one of the main attractions of the fair. Each and every author tries to highlight their recent works and try to pinpoint the significant of his/her writings.

Edward O. Wilson, biologist, has published his first fiction book named Anthill. Richard Rhodes, a nuclear weapons historian tried to promote his forth volume of the series the creation and spread of nuclear weapons is another attraction of the festival. In this book history was given from the cold war to the present time. The extension of the nuclear weapon of mass destruction is the main focus in his writings.

Harold Varmus, a Nobel Laureate for his contribution came up with his recent memoir, The Art and Politics of Science. This book discusses about different aspects of politics of science got good attention in the civil society. Those three books and speech of the writers were very much informative and touching for the book lovers.

Henry Petroski who is professor of civil engineering at Duke writes about why things fail. In his recent writings "The Essential Engineer: Why Science Alone Will Not Solve Our Global Problems". In his writings he focused on solving problems using science. Scientific facts in various problem solving issues got attraction of the visitors of the fair. He also tries to distinguish between science and engineering using the linear model. He claims that contemporary policy to science is very much short-sighted.

There are some other scientific topics highlighted in the fair. Allegra Goodman wrote new work "her novel intuition" and Richard Holmes in his book "the age of wonder" tries to discover the scientific discoveries, prominent scientists of the late 18th and early 19th century. These two pieces were much talked books in the festival.

The recent national book festival 2010 can be said the science and technology dominating fair. Various new books about modern science and technology are published and inaugurated in the books fair. Country renowned writers try to bring new books in the festival to attract. So in a nutshell national Book Festival 2010 was seen dominated by the science and technology.

Science and Medical Research - What You Need to Become a Medical Researcher

Medical researchers help to pave the way for new sciences and technologies within the medical field. It's because of their intensive studies that we have been able to learn more about the human body and how to detect and fight off a variety of illnesses and afflictions. Becoming a medical researcher takes years of education, but opens doors to a field that is cutting-edge and very exciting.

If you feel that you meet the form of this type researcher (analytical, thrive on logic, and enjoy science), then you may want to consider earning a bachelor's degree in a science that suits you: biology, chemistry, anatomy, pharmacology, genetics, or medical technology to name a few. Upon completing your bachelor's degree, it's suggested to gain further knowledge in the topic of study that you should enroll in a master's or PhD program. The more professional degrees you hold, the more likely you'll be selected for a medical research project.

Finding a good graduate research program at a university or hospital will help get you started on research projects that could help you network with other research scientists and members of the school's faculty and staff. This can help you with scholarships and grants to further your studies.

You may also want to try and find a research position, or shadow a medical researcher within a hospital while still in school. Upon graduation, you will feel experienced in medical researching and can probably get a position within the hospital that you had already been spending so much time in.

When Is It Too Late for a Science and Technology Course?

Science and Technology surround us wherever we go and whatever we do. From the way we communicate to the way we entertain ourselves, we all interact with it on a daily if not hourly basis. But, if you're not already in the industry and didn't grow up with an iPod or get an HTC for your 10th birthday, is it still possible to take a course in science or technology? Or have you simply missed the hi-tech boat?

Many people start studying at University directly after high school without a real idea of what they want to do with the rest of their lives, alternatively they start working immediately and get caught in the cycle of earning an income to meet expenses very early on in life. Either way, many people reach a point in their late twenties or early thirties, where after ten years of hard work they feel they have achieved what they wanted in their selected field of study or work and start craving a new challenge. And it doesn't get much newer of much more challenging than the ever evolving field of science and technology courses.

To clarify, the field of science and technology is as broad and as all encompassing as the field of 'art'. Except, instead of paintbrushes dueling it out with HDTV, science and technology courses more often go hand in hand. From scripting mobile phone applications to mapping the genome of the common housecat, revolutionary progress in one field inevitably has an indirect field on another and ultimately on the way we live our lives. Taking a course in science and technology therefore spans all aspects of modern living.

If you want to get involved with this constantly developing field, there are some questions you are going to have to ask yourself before setting out. It's no coincidence that you can't step into cyberspace without coming face to face with the work of a hundred good to great web designers, while the work of good to great bio-engineers is a little harder to come by. Before typing out your resignation letter and stapling it to your boss's desk, ask yourself the following:

1. What career do I ultimately want to pursue?
2. How much time does it take to establish a career in this field without prior study/experience?
3. Do I have any cross over skills that I could transfer to a scientific or technological field? (Here's a clue, project management is one of them, icing cakes is not)
4. Do I have the time to invest in skills acquisition part time?
5. Could I afford to invest in re-skilling full time?

Doing a quick budget or a 'life audit', where you break down how you spend your week on average hour by hour, will help you to decide whether you have the monetary or timing capacity to invest in a career change. But investing in a course in science and technology requires serious commitment and capacity and motivation are not one in the same.

Do as much research as you can into the science or technology course that you want to pursue and see if you can find someone in that field who can answer some of your questions. Better yet, ask them to allow you to shadow them for a day. Studies show that it takes at least 10 000 hours to become an expert at anything, so realise that you will need time to become proficient in your new career and above all, remember that it's never too late to learn anything.

The Contribution of Science and Creativity to Marketing Success

Marketing is increasingly viewed as a science, where sophisticated modelling and data-driven decision-making are taking centre stage. Against this backdrop, has creativity become a less important marketing skill? It has certainly been argued that marketers come in two shapes - the scientist and the artist. My contention is that significant marketing success requires a careful balancing of both, and that neither is the superior marketing skill.

In a previous discussion (What To Say When), I scoped out the decision-making process, and the appropriate communications approach at each stage. So, working on the assumption that a decision to buy starts at awareness, let's also start here in reviewing the relative roles of science and creativity on marketing success.

In my first major agency role with Mason Zimbler, our MD used a simple equation to set the scene which has stayed with me ever since:

Frequency x Impact = Awareness

The premise is that if either element is out of balance, your chances of success are limited. It is a simple concept. In regard to frequency, think 'it takes more than one drip of water to get wet'. The Chartered Institute of Marketing in the UK suggest that it takes three sightings of an ad to really notice it. When we talk about impact, the most important element is relevance - did your ad, email, banner, blog, etc strike a chord with the recipient, if not they won't notice you. (There's also more on this in my article 'what to say when'). So, if your piece is dull and irrelevant, your audience will not see it. Or, if your piece is stunningly relevant, but they only see if briefly, you're unlikely to really get the message across. Taking these two elements as our bases of comparison, we'll review the contribution of science and creativity to each.

The scientific approach to communication frequency: The scientific approach to managing the frequency of your marketing messaging is to model an ideal contact density for each segment or, in highly sophisticated set-ups, for each individual. By which we mean the number of exposures to a message typically required to elicit a response. This enables the marketer to develop a communications plan that ensures the optimum number of touches. Large consumer organisations, like banks, also use this technique to ensure that their customers aren't over-communicated - having observed that over-communication can trigger complaints or defections, smart technology-driven rules are applied to ensure that this risk is minimised.

The creative approach to communication frequency: A creative approach to communications frequency is to think laterally. The best example of a really creative approach to this is the innovative use of ambient media. By putting themselves in the shoes of the audience, a creative team will dream up highly creative media placements to ensure that the message gets to people regularly. A great example from the not-for-profit sector is an NUS (National Union of Students) sexual health campaign, using stickered ten pence pieces scattered in student bars. This is creative thinking on many levels - firstly the location, then the assumption that a student would pick up a stray coin, and the association of the money having passed through many hands linking directly to the message itself. Another example of this is the use that Amplex deodorants made of placing their ads on the hanging hold bars on underground trains and busses - we all know how unpleasant it is to be on crowded public transport where someone nearby has a body odour issue. Creatively tapping into this gave Amplex a highly creative media placement opportunity - ensuring that commuters in London were served this message every time they travelled. By mapping out a buyer's journey and thinking about how to get your message across creatively at each point, you can vastly increase your opportunity-to-see.

The scientific approach to communication relevance: Scientific marketing has increased the likely relevance of marketing messages exponentially in recent years. There is real value in powerful analytics, particularly if you're able to cross hatch your analyses to build a full and rich picture of your market. Right message, right time, right medium can now be worked out for you using powerful optimisation software. The various data strategy awards are littered with excellent examples of this approach.

The creative approach to communication relevance: When it comes to creativity and relevance, we need only look to viral marketing for lessons in why creativity is essential. The Gadbury Gorilla ad would never have come about by virtue of scientific messaging development. Marketers need to remember that they are talking to people, with feelings and a sense of humour. We also all know that a recommendation from a friend is vastly superior in terms of our likelihood to listen than an official piece of marketing. As such, tapping into word of mouth is essential and creativity is king in the 'click to forward' world. The earlier examples of creative media placement also show how creativity can increase relevance by being appropriately positioned to amplify your message.

Balancing and fostering a healthy mix of marketing skills: Having merely scratched the surface on these subjects, it is clear to see that marketers need to balance their skills at both ends of the scientific-artistic continuum.

Ten key points to fostering and balancing both skill sets:

1. Ensure your marketing team is trained in understanding and briefing scientific and creative suppliers

2. Facilitate creative thinking - I'd suggest that marketers need about one day per quarter of facilitated creative thinking

3. Start with science to build the profile of your audience, but always get a creative team to contribute ideas about how to reach them

4. Test various creative executions against the same audience to demonstrate in hard commercial terms the impact of the creative element of your campaigns

5. Don't sacrifice creativity to buy more frequency - if your message makes no impact every time you pay for space, you're wasting money

6. Don't let beauty distract you - something can be beautiful but irrelevant

7. Make sure you track people through the sales funnel to allow you to see how you've generated your best leads

8. Look for ideas everywhere - you don't have to have 'creative' in your job title to have a good idea

9. Never let the numbers speak for themselves - when it comes to reviewing marketing, you do need to look at what the audience saw to really understand it

10. Read the marketing awards booklets - there's no such thing as a new idea. Most marketing awards these days look at science and creativity, you will find great examples if you look for them.

Marketing is one of the most exciting jobs in the world - you are a scientist, a psychologist, an artist and so much more. If you recognise, hone and balance these skills you'll achieve success for your business and great satisfaction for yourself.

Modern Science and Technology and the Challenges of Third World Countries

We live in a highly sophisticated world where everything is almost achievable. There would probably have been no changes between the world of today and that of three centuries ago if necessity and serendipitous discoveries had not driven men to achieve great things. Science and technology have had huge positive effects on every society. The world today has gone digital, even human thought. Our world has been reduced to a global village and is better for it.

The benefits of science and technology far outweigh every perceived shortcoming. Some of the biggest effects of technology are in the area of communication; through the internet and mobile phones. There is advancement of communication and expansions of economic commerce. Today we hear of information and communication technology (ICT). Any institution worth its name must have it in place to be really outstanding. Information technology has become boosted in today's generation; from the field of communication, business, education, and down to the entertainment industry. Through information technology, work performances are boosted with less effort and greater productivity by using various operations. Without computers or the internet, it will be difficult for people all over the world to get their questions answered. One may use the internet to locate a wealth of information with which to answer an essay question that may have been assigned at school, communicate with people, conduct transactions, access news, buy and advertise goods. The list is endless.

The advancement of Science and technology allow mass communication today so that we not only have the television, radio and newspaper, but even mobile phones which renders a multipurpose service; from long distance calls, listening to radio and music, playing games, taking pictures, recording voice and video, and browsing the internet. The benefits we obtain as a result of services from ICT have become widespread in our generation today. It improves the productive level of individuals and workers because People's knowledge of life beyond the area they lived in is now unlimited. This idea of mass communication also profoundly affects politics as leaders now have many ways they talk directly to the people. Apart from going on air to use radio or television, politicians resort to the social media for some of their political comments and campaign. Information about protests and revolutions are being circulated online, especially through social media. This has caused political upheavals and resulted in change of government in most countries today.

Furthermore, current global issues are much more accessible to the public. Communication has been brought also to the next level because one can find new ways to be able to communicate with loved ones at home.

Science and technology expand society's knowledge. Science helps humans gain increased understanding of how the world works, while technology helps scientists make these discoveries. Learning has maximized because of different media that are being developed which are all interactive and which bring learning experiences to the next level. Businesses have grown and expanded because of breakthroughs in advertising.

Modern technology has changed the way many companies produce their goods and handle their business. The idea and use of video and web conferencing, for instance, has helped companies remove geographical barriers and given them the opportunity to reach out to employees and clients through out the world. In today's economy, it has helped companies reduce the cost and inconveniences of travelling, allowing them to meet as often as they could like without having to worry about finding the budget to settle it. Modern technology helps companies reduce their carbon footprint and become green due to the fact that almost anything can be done from a computer.

There have been advances in medical care through the development of science and technology. Advances in medical technology have contributed immensely in extending the life span of people. People with disabilities or health problems are now more and more able to live closer to normal lives. This is because science contributes to developing medications to enhance health as well as technology such as mobile chairs and even electronics that monitor current body levels. Most devices used by the physically challenged people are customized and user friendly.

Science and technology increase road safety. Nowadays, law enforcement officers use Laser technology to detect when automobiles are exceeding speed limits. Technology has led to the development of modern machines such as cars and motorcycles which allow us to be mobile and travel freely and airplanes which travel at a supersonic speed.

Another machine, the air- conditioner, provides cool comfort, especially during hot weather. In offices where dress codes exist, people can afford to wear suits without being worried about the weather. It guarantees convenience even when the climate says otherwise.

Moreover, present day factories have modern facilities like machines and soft ware that facilitate production. These machines work with greater speed and perfection incomparable with human skills. These machines have enabled markets to have surplus products all over the world. For the soft ware, they make it possible for machines to be programmed, for production to be regulated, to monitor the progress being recorded and so on.

Modern technology indeed has been great. For third world countries, however, it has been challenging, especially the area of production. Only consuming and not been able to manufacture does not favour any country when it comes to balance of trade. The most sensitive parts of technology are the theoretical or conceptual parts and technical parts. These are the backbone of technological development anywhere in the world. Without the ideas, there will not be technology. Third world counties need to go back to the basics, that is, to the primitive. There must be meeting ground for tradition and modern technological invention. Third world countries engage in import substitution strategy where they import half finished goods and complete the tail end of the production process domestically. Third world countries started wrongly. They started with climbing the ladder from the top which is very wrong and difficult. They thought that being able to purchase and operate modern technological products qualifies for advancement in science and technological development. This makes third world countries to be a dependent system because working in the factories are routine work and this inevitably links to the issue of the idea of technology transfer. They should seek for technological transfer, but the problem is that no nation is ready to transfer her hard earned technological knowledge to any other nation for some certain reasons which drive nations into competition; world politics and economic prowess. That is the struggle to lead or dominate other nations technologically, economically and politically. Be the first to invent new gadgets and latest electronics including those used in modern warfare, use other nations as market for finished goods, and to have a strong voice and be able to influence other countries. They should consider embarking on technological espionage so as to acquire the rudiments for technological development if they must liberate themselves from the shackles of technological domination.

In conclusion, it's not until third world countries begin to put embargo on the importation of certain electronics and mechanical goods that the necessity to be creative would replace the habit of consuming foreign products. Countries like Thailand, Burma, Brazil, and South Africa and so on, should be emulated. These countries experienced colonialism yet they did not allow it to overwhelm their creative prowess. Industry and determination saw them emerge as economic giants in the world today. Third world countries should emulate them by carrying out proper feasibility studies to ascertain which technology will suit their country; giving more financial boost to this area, training people to become experts; motivating and encouraging individuals who are naturally endowed and technologically inclined to display their bests of talents. These measures if strictly adhered to will go a long way to help the advancement of these countries in the area of science and technology. If these countries must achieve greatness before the next decade, they have to make conscious and unrelenting efforts. The time starts now! The more they delay, the more backward they become.

Science and the Bible

People have used science to try and discredit the bible. According to some the bible has now become an "outdated book" because science can now give us all the knowledge we need. However all the scientific knowledge gathered so far are still more or less theories and are still yet to be proven as fact. So while some areas of science are valid, there are still categories of information that need to be tested or established.

Science is basically the gathering of knowledge to better understand the how and why of how things work as it relates to the world and the universe. Science and technology go hand in hand as they are both dependent on each other.

There are two categories of science:

  1. Exact Sciences - these would include physics, chemistry, biology etc. For exact science the certainty of information is greater and in some cases the function is more analytical, while in others it is mostly descriptive.
  2. Non Exact Sciences - History, Sociology and Humanities. For the non-exact sciences, the degree of definiteness is small, but in some branches exactness is allowed. That is why you can detect biasness in some areas, but not in others.
The methods for study and analysis will differ from discipline to discipline and the methods of investigation and analysis will be valid from one field but not for another. What is important though is that logic be used in the methods of investigation. Logic helps in determining what is true from false.

Therefore, one has to be careful when discussing the Bible and science. Science is a good thing and has made great strides especially in recent times, but in a lot of cases it has been used to discredit God and the Bible.

In the world of science, information can be categorized as theories and facts. Information that is based on theory should have no place in discussions about the bible and science, only those that deal with the facts and laws of science. When using scientific information based on facts, you will find that a lot of misconceptions about the bible will disappear.

Scientific Models

A model is used when studying things that cannot be easily handled. There are two types of models - qualitative or descriptive models and quantitative or mathematical models.

The theory of evolution and scientific creation are both examples of scientific models. However, the evolutionist should not claim his model is truth. He should rather state that his model is a possibility in which life came into being.

Testing of both models should be able to explain:

  1. the maximum number of observed phenomena related to life, and
  2. the maximum number of predictions about phenomena related to life, but not observed so far.
Only the Scientific Creation module has been able to do this.

In the world of Science, model making is a must. However, it must be understood that the model itself is not truth but only a representation of the truth. Therefore, the Christian Apologist must be wary when scientific theories are used in debates or discussions with the bible.

Historical Science

Science has really advanced over the years. It is used in a variety of ways to find answers to questions that long ago seemed impossible to answer. However, when it comes to the bible, we must understand that material science cannot explain or give answers to those questions that come out of the bible. We must look to historical science.

The Origin of the Universe, Life and Archaeology belongs with Historical studies. Demanding scientific proof for historical events in the Bible is beyond reason and shows the lack of knowledge about scientific investigation.

The Christian Apologist must make it known to his opponents who use physical science to discredit the bible that you cannot mix the two for their own biases and purposes.

Renaissance Science and The Electromagnetic Technology of Platonic Love.

The Fullerene Chemistry life-science of the three 1996 Nobel Laureates in Chemistry was based upon the synergistic engineering principles of Buckminster Fuller, which challenged the basis of 20th Century science. Harvard University's Novatis Professor, Amy Edmonson in her online book titled 'The Fuller Explanation' explains that Buckminster Fuller derived his engineering principles from the mathematics of the Greek philosopher Plato. Most people have heard of the term 'Platonic love' and now that Platonic-Fullerene Chemistry has come into existence, we might ask the question, what practical engineering principles might be associated with Platonic love?

To answer that question we can examine how the new chemistry challenges the general understanding of modern science. The NASA High Energy Astrophysics Division library has published papers arguing that the Platonic tradition of Greek philosophy was based upon fractal geometrical logic. All life-sciences within the present accepted understanding of science, can only be about species moving toward extinction. This is because Einstein's 'Premier law of all Science' demands the total destruction of all life in the universe when all of its heat is radiated away into cold space. On the other hand, Plato's ethical logic is based upon fractal geometry, which we know extends life-science to infinity. The New Measurement of Humanity Project at the University of Florence, on September 24th 2010, was honoured with the Georgio Napolitano Medal on behalf of the Republic of Italy. The Project's upgrading of quantum mechanics to quantum biology, agreed with Plato's logic.

The practical engineering principles we seek, belongs to the difference between aesthetics and ethics. Ethics can now be considered to be part of science itself, rather that being considered to be only about how we use science. We can explain the difference in simplistic terms rather than complex electromagnetic biological terms that belongs to quantum biology. We know that the old chemistry we have, does indeed obey Einstein's law of Universal decay. However, we know from the discovery of Sir Isaac Newton's unpublished papers, discovered last century, that Newton held the firm conviction that a more profound natural philosophy existed to balance the energy decay of the mechanical universe. Newton's principles, responsible for this balance, belonged to Plato's lost 'Science for ethical ends'.

During the 18th Century, the philosopher Immanuel Kant defined aesthetics as the theory of art appreciation, but he also sought ethics technology from within the electromagnetic theories of his day, an electric motor to make the one we know as a child's toy by comparison. Kantian aesthetics in the 21st Century has become the basis of a moral logic to guide various types of organisations. An interest in ethical electromagnetic biological science is re-emerging, because of the new Platonic-Fullerene Chemistry.

Any aesthetic consciousness in the beauty of, say, a painting of a lovely mountain range with majestic waterfalls, is about seeing beauty in decay, the waterfalls are eating away at the structure of the mountain. The aesthetic feeling, therefore, belongs to the material world of destructive reality, but it inspires a peaceful harmonic creative intuition in the mind. The Nobel Laureate in Medicine, Svent-Gyoergyi, was so insistent that this material decay was balanced by the evolution of consciousness, that he called scientists who did not realise this, crazy apes and wrote a book with that title. We can now begin to think that the mental harmonics associated with mareialistc aesthetics and the evolution of the mind, might have some great universal ethical purpose and begin to look for the new technologies that Immanuel Kant intuitively glimpsed. This is about the optical spiritual, or holographic, engineering principles that Plato wrote about.

The harmonic balancing of the decay of matter with Sir Isaac Newton's more natural profound balancing philosophy, describes some sort of entanglement between the the energies of decay and evolving creative consciousness. This is known as quantum entanglement, a process existing between quantum mechanics and quantum biology. The biologist Dr Carl Johan Calleman, author of the book 'The Purposeful Universe' has quantised the functioning of the human cell. This allows us to identify the rather incredible nature of Immanuel Kant's sought for ethical electromagnetc ethical technology.

Dr Callerman notes that the male sperm propels itself to the ovum by a tiny electromagnetic motor, which is driving its tail. Upon entry to the ovum, the male motor morphs into a balanced Yin-Yang motor of life. This spark of life programs a universal message of evolution to the first bone created within the embryo, the sphenoid bone. The sphenoid vibrates with the seashell design of the inner ear, to provide the electromagnetic music of life that Plato referred to as Pythagoras' Music of the Spheres. Dr Richard Merrick of Texas University, in his book 'Interference' has mapped out the electromagnetic functioning of the Music of the Music of the Spheres within the functioning of evolving consciousness.

The Science-Art Research Centre of Australia discovered the mathematical structure of the Music of the Spheres governing the evolution of seashells through millions of years through space-time The discovery was reprinted by the worlds largest technological research institute IEEE SPIE Milestone Series in Washington in 1990. In 1995 the work won the Institute for Basic Research's Biology Prize for the discovery of new physics laws governing optimum biological growth and development through space-time. Since then, it has been discovered that the human sphenoid bone sings the same Music of the Spheres song of life, meaning that it is now possible to discover a practical technology from what was once called Plato's optical spiritual engineering principles.

The Science-Art Centre obtained experimental evidence by using special 3-D Glasses, of the existence of Plato's spiritual optics by discovering that, over the centuries some artists had unconsciously depicted holographic images into their paintings. The new technology is about humankind's evolving understanding of the nature of Einstien's protege, David Bohm's, infinite holographic universe. Now that the difference between aesthetics and ethics is understood, humankind is poised upon the threshold of what buckminster Fuller referred to as Uopia or Oblivion.

Within the Platonic tradition of Greek philosophy, Aristotle's ethical science was designed to become the basis of an ennobling medical politics for the health of the universe, so that the universe would not allow civilisation to become extinct. The Platonic-Fullerene Chemistry is part of that political medical science and it has no place for any aesthetic obsession to dominate politics or religious persuasions. For example, aesthetical appreciation of blond blue eyed people becoming a master race is not ethical, as also was using the aesthetics of Angel Physics to legalise the torture and burning alive of countless women and children as witches.

The 2008 Nobel Prize Winner in Medicine Dr Luc Montagnier, is among an emerging group of scholars who claim that evidence has been obtained to show that DNA can transport imprints of itself electromagnetically. To make teleportation ethical it would be necessary to change the general assumption that nature will find some way to cull overpopulation. Transparent global medical scientific research, available to the people must come into existence to allow ethical debate on such issues to occur. That very process, acting in defiance of being governed by the present understanding of unbalanced entropic decay, will demonstrate the existence of new technologies, for the betterment of the human condition, far beyond the ability of an entropic mindset to even imagine.

A Different View of Science

The time has come to re-evaluate unexplainable and "unscientific" discoveries and disciplines with radically new paradigms that better reflect the needs of modern man. The current principles of technological science must be examined to see if they still function in Humanities best interest. To apply Newtonian concepts and three dimensional logic to disciplines like Astrology of discoveries like ESP, neutrinos and black holes is going to cause science to blunder into a philosophical cul-de-sac where it will have to draw useless and ridiculous conclusions that will make good Sci-Fi plots but will retard human evolution.

Our needs at this point in Humanity's evolution are not for more and more sophisticated missiles, computers, and electronic gadgets but rather for a purpose and reason for man to continue to evolve on earth. The main paradigm of science since Newton has been to dominate and control out total environment for our own needs and desires. The fact that these desires were usually selfish, nationalistic and petty has not stopped science (and its handmaiden technology) from pushing humans to the brink of extinction. It is apparent that science in its 200 year quest to create a world of good and plenty has neglected to set any conceptual goals of limits in its search.As the myth of man's superiority over his environment crumbles, science has neglected to look for a replacement, and consequently it continues to use the same old solutions for an entirely new set of problems.

As the 20th century comes to an end, the scientific community is being confronted with more and more discoveries and theories that ate totally incompatible with the three dimensional five sense world that was defined scientifically over three hundred years ago.In order for science to face this confrontation over the next twenty-five years it will have to do three things:1. Discard if necessary, any three dimensional sense based paradigms that are no longer relevant to mans total evolution.2. Develop new paradigms that will make the apparently incomprehensible discoveries and disciplines of today more meaningful so that they might give us a renewed perspective on our world.3. Use this perspective to build a broader, more relevant myth so that will enable humanity to define a renewed purpose and goal for its evolution. Point one looks simple, but, it is really quite difficult. Over the years, science has made a lot of assumptions that it accepts as fact. To convenience scientists otherwise is extremely difficult due to a smug assumption of their own intelligence and wisdom.One of the first ideas of science that will have to for is that if a theory cannot be proved analytically by some sort of empirical means, it is of no value and should be ignored.

Potentially valuable disciplines like Yoga, Astrology, and acupuncture are discarded using this logic.This thought is further reinforced by a corollary principle that says if something does not have the potential to either make someone rich of fulfill a paranoid need for collective protection it is not worth pursuing. Solar energy suffers under the former and the Pentagon thrives on the latter.A more esoteric and obsolete principle of science that is rarely defined is the assumption that present knowledge is the culmination of a long trail of experimentation and error. The scientists of Galileo's time felt that the earth was the center of the solar system. They "proved" it according to their subjective notions, and felt that the idea was "right".We smugly look back and consider the acceptance of the heliocentric solar system as a naive but necessary step in our attempt to understand the solar system, which we now consider completely understood. It is obvious if you think about it that our current knowledge is no more complete in an absolute sense than that of Copernicus. His theory was a big step above Galileo just as Galileo was a big step above Cro-Magnon's.

There is no real reason to believe that a different model of the solar system might not be discovered which will make our present knowledge seem just as naive as Galileo.Another paradigm that is obsolete is the statement that an observable fact is more valid than a subjective one. The word valid in this context is defined as being useful for social or personal growth enhancement.One fact that comes to mind that is not particularly valid is that the earth is round. We all know it's round, but subjectively, seeing it as flat is just as valid. Deep down we do not believe that is round anyway, otherwise we would be afraid of going to Australia; as we might fall off into space. Considering the world subjectively as flat has no disadvantages and in fact is more useful for our functional conception of the world.Another related fact that has no practical meaning to our everyday life is that the sun is the center of the solar system and the earth revolves around it at 17,000 mph. A moments thought will convince anybody that we are forced by our senses to deny this as we see the sun revolving around the earth and consider the earth as being stationery.Any fact has to be looked at in this manner. As the meaning of facts is relative to our sense of reality. Considering the earth as the relative center of the solar system enabled humanity to utilize the earth's biosphere in a functional practical manner, as the concept of day, month, and growing season are easier to conceptualize assuming the sun revolves around the earth. It turns out that the only use a heliocentric conception of the solar system has is in esoteric technological abstractions such as launching space ships and satellites.

It must be stated that I am not advocating the re-acceptance of the geocentric solar system, rather, I am presenting the idea that both views are valid for different things, and for science to totally disregard the subjective aspects of observable phenomena is not in humanities best interest.Another attitude of science that is no longer functional is that present knowledge is always valid and anything new must be subjected to years of proving and analysis to be accepted. The introduction of antiseptic procedures and anesthetics into medicine are two of the most famous examples.The paradigms that I have mentioned are not all inclusive, as science has many more that could be changed. It must be understood that I am not advocating the examination and editing of every scientific axiom, but rather a change of perspective about scientific discoveries that would put the accent on what humanity needs a opposed to what it wants.The elimination of these various principle and axioms automatically implies establishing new ones.

The ones I just mentioned were relevant and useful in their time frame, and grew out of the experience of humans during different periods that make this period ideal for reformulating our most basic scientific concepts.The first new principles I propose is that a discovery of theory will be accepted and disseminated if it shows a definite potential to fulfill a social need. Society as an entity often asks questions in its own way. The answer to these questions is best met by the symbol. A theory should be judged by its symbolic power to either alter humanities perception or to fulfill a collective need. The idea of " proving" it should be secondary. As a corollary to this principal, I propose that a scientific discovery or theory be submitted to other disciplines for analysis. If artists and philosophers could have had a say in the use of napalm, a lot of human suffering might have been avoided.Another principle that I feel would enable science to arrive at more valid conclusions to today's phenomena would be to accept the idea that our three dimensional world is real, but does not encompass reality. This statement has been accepted as fact for years by all occult societies, some religions, and many philosophers. The scientists have dealt with it by ignoring it.

The physics of sub-atomic particles would be the obvious place for this principle to be applied. Two of the established conclusions of this discipline already postulate that atoms, which compose " solid" objects are mostly space, and are moving rapidly and that matter is not an actual substance but rather a particular form of energy.Throughout history, visions, ideas, and dreams, although not " real " have altered the world and its people. Concepts like the Jewish state, Christianity, and Communism are three of the best examples. If science could accept ideas like ESP and telepathy without insisting on three dimensional proof, our world might progress differently.A companion to the above principle is that phenomena that is experienced by senses other than the obvious five be considered to have an equal potential for becoming valid and useful. Carl Jung's dream analysis and the ideas of Robert Assagioli offer tremendous potential for improving psychology's usefulness if they could be applied with a more pragmatic attitude.These new principles of science would only be a start. Using them would cause a weakening of the uniqueness of the scientific method.

The positive aspects would be to make science more closely aligned with the other evolutionary disciplines of art and philosophy. The potential of such a synthetic discipline formed from the best aspects of art, philosophy, science and mathematics would be tremendous. Such a discipline could be called homosynthesis and would be ideal for humanities apparent future needs.As things stand now, the implications of today's discoveries will become more and more unreal and fantastic if we continue using present phenomena, the further examination of such " scientific" discoveries as black holes and quarks must be done within a less rigid framework in order for them to ever become meaningful for humanity. At present, the conclusion that " modern science" has drawn from them sounds ridiculous. Black holes imply a disappearance of time, matter, and space itself out of the universe possess a quality so exotic that it is referred to as "charm", for want of a better word. Neutrinos have no mass, no charge and do not leave a trail in a bubble chamber, yet science admits their existence.

Using some of the principles I have postulated would be a good start to make some sense out of the apparent nonsense described above.People look to science for many of the myths we use to give subjective meaning to our existence. The myth that humans have the wisdom and ability to distort natural processes without any negative effects has strongly defined our reality over the last fifty years. Another one is that humans have an infinite capacity for wisdom, and that the rapid application of every scientific discovery, regardless of our understanding of the affects of the implications, is in our best interest.The new principles that I have proposed could lead to new myths. The idea that an individual is part of something beyond his comprehension can lead to an intelligent humility that would convert man from a paranoid antagonist against an unknown foe to an enlightened part of a vast cosmic whole. Instead of seeing things like black holes and quarks as fantastic outside concepts attacking our cherished notions, we could accept them as doors that open into a higher level of cosmic integration. We could become conscious cooperators in our own evolution, with each new discovery leading us to another in a never ending path toward our ultimate destiny.

Bachelor Science Degree A Good Start For High-Tech Fields

It's very well known that one industry that seems to be skirting the current economic recession is computer science and information technology. There have been personnel who have gone from full-time status to temp, but there is still plenty of work out there. What's interesting is one of the most in-demand occupations in this industry is Customer Relations Management, a/k/a CRM.

A recently published report from a major computer temp firm actually came up with some surprising news. CRM personnel should be expecting above-average raises over the next year. Two positions in particular, Business Analysts and Technical Development, are especially in demand.

CRM Technical Development personnel work closely with a corporations marketing department. They are primarily responsible for developing programs and other reporting methods for client feedback and response. This is a vital function considering the constant developments going down in the computer science field.

Those interested in pursuing this field should have exceptional written and oral communications skills. They should also have an outstandingly analytical mind with equally exceptional computer/programming skills. Entry level positions require a BA or BS in some form of Computer Science or Information Technology, with classes in such areas as MCCM, Unica and Alterian. They should also be proficient in such packages as Microsoft Office (including Power Point, Excel and Word). General retail experience is a definite plus.

As for Business Analysis, they work closely with the Technical Development personnel, gathering the data the latter compiles and implementing programs and campaigns to keep the customers coming back for more. Many times they are team leaders, supervising an array of information tech, marketing and customer service personnel.

A person interested in this field should look for an on-campus or online college that offers a strong business course load, particularly in public relations and/or marketing. One can also gain entry level positions with either a BA or BS degree in Computer Science or Information Technology. General retail experience is also a very strong plus, as is fluency in various computer applications.

According to the report, CRM Business Analysts currently are paid anywhere from $65,000 to $89,000 a year, based in part on location, experience and their general knowledge of various applications. CRM Technical Development personnel earn more, from $73,000 to $97,500, considering the same conditions. As for demand, the report states both positions should see their salaries increased by as much as 5% in 2011. This is well above the national average for salary increases these days and a reflection for the demand of these skilled white collar workers. It should also be noted that these salaries actually become greater if either types have knowledge of Java, C++, Linux and a number of other applications or programs.

New Technology Helps Pain Sufferers

In my last article I outlined the importance of uncovering the underlying cause of pain first, before deciding upon a treatment. This has not changed, this is still your most important first step.

However, a new technology from the space program could well be a fast safe way to uncover the underlying cause of pain, loss of mobility or other health related discomfort, making this first step much easier and more accurate.

This technology was first designed to uncover stress points on the space shuttle. It is, also, now used to test the various components of jet aircraft. And, now it has been revamped, modified and repurposed for use in determining vertebrae movement in the spine.

Healthcare professionals, such as Chiropractors, tell us your nervous system pass nerve impulses or information to the brain through your spinal cord which then passes those impulses through a network of nerves to all organs of the body. These nerves find their way to the various organs of the body by going through small openings between each vertebrae.

Consequently, even a small misalignment of such vertebrae will put pressure on nerves immediately under it. This pressure interferes with the normal flow of nerve impulses to that part of the body or organ that the nerve is associated with. In that manner interferes with the normal function of that organ or may cause unusual sensations or pain in a specific area of the body.

Chiropractic has for decades found success in treating many ailments through a process of spinal manipulation to re-align the vertebrae. However, they these healthcare professionals have had to rely on feeling the vertebrae to find the points of misalignment or use X-rays. Now this has changed.

With this new technology an instrument connected to a specially programmed computer analyzes the movement capacity of each vertebrae as it is passed over the spine, beginning at the base of the skull and proceeding down the spine. While you do hear a tapping sound and feel a tapping sensation as it is being passed down your spine, the procedure is entirely painless.

Even more importantly, this same technology also can be used to re-adjust the alignment of any misaligned vertebrae. What this means is a procedure that is totally painless, drug free and injection free is now available as an effective alternative to other invasive, drug related protocols.

While it does look, like it came out of science fiction, you don't have to wait for Scotty to beam you up to the star-ship for treatment, you may find it in your own home city anywhere in the USA, Canada, or the UK. All you need do is call your local chiropractor, ask him or her if he is licensed to use the Proadjuster technology.
