 Earthquakes - An Essay by Dr. Yan Y. Kagan
Kagan is a Research Geophysicist in the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Studying the distribution of earthquake focal mechanisms and modeling of earthquake fault branching opens new avenues for statistical analysis: very little is currently known about the statistics of 3-D rotations, quaternions, and the properties of tensor-valued stochastic processes (Kagan, 1991; 1994; 2000).
The problems and challenges facing earthquake science are briefly discussed in a series of my slides, presented at the 2002 workshop in the Minnesota Institute for Mathematics and its Application.

In science it should be possible to make predictions about the future and the Venus Transit of1639 was maybe its first tangible success.
Since the variation in the output of light followed the same cycle as the perturbation in the stellar position the existence of an extrasolar planet was for the first time proved in 1999 by observing what in fact was a transit in front of a foreign sun.
Since the first evidence for the existence of an extrasolar planet in fact came from the observation of its transit in front of a star astronomers in many places are now preparing themselves to use the upcoming Venus Transit as a testing ground for developing methods for detecting small, earth-size, planets revolving around foreign suns.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: St. Thomas Aquinas
The object, or subject, of this science is God; other things are treated in it only in so far as they relate to God (Answer 7).
Not so bold or original in investigating nature as were Albertus Magnus and Roger Bacon, he was, nevertheless, abreast of his time in science, and many of his opinions are of scientific value in the twentieth century.
It is in relation to the sciences that some persons doubt the reliability of St. Thomas's writings; and the doubters are thinking of the physical and experimental sciences, for in metaphysics the Scholastics are admitted to be masters.

DIT Structure The majority of this document is concerned with DIT structure, naming and the usage of attributes for organisations, organisational units and personal entries.
Until the standard provides a solution for this problem it is possible to make use of multi-valued attributes to specify a value not only in the local languages but also in English.
To achieve this, it is important to allow an entry to be of both object class organisation and of object class organisational unit.

In response, scientists organized through AgBioWorld Foundation crafted a "Joint Statement in Support of Scientific Discourse in Mexican GM Maize Scandal," defending the freedom of scientists to rigorously examine the results and methodology of reported research.
Furthermore, if Quist and Chapela were so eager to overlook the shortcomings of their research, perhaps observers ought to be somewhat more skeptical of their other claims about the relevance of those findings.
Ultimately, science still must resolve whether or not the flow of transgenes into maize landraces will have significant negative impacts on either maize genetic diversity or on the broader environment, but the answer is likely to be no.

In science it should be possible to make predictions about the future and the Venus Transit of 1639 was maybe its first tangible success.
The Venus Transits of 1761 and 1769 provided an excellent opportunity for this mentality and the task defined by Edmund Halley, the discoverer of Halley1s comet, to use these transits for measuring the distance to the sun came to be the first international collaboration project in science.
This in fact also meant the birth of American science - the first instance where the British colonies in the West were able to assert an independent capacity for scientific studies.
