Sargent asked the Minister for Education and Science the plans he has to address the falling numbers of students studying science subjects; and if he will establish a national science centre to supplement the teaching of science in schools to help glamorise the subject.
I should stress that the issue is one of the uptake of the physical sciences at senior cycle.
At junior cycle the uptake of science has been fairly constant at close to 90% of the cohort for a number of years.

In 1678, Huygens, in a communication to the Academie des Science, propounded a wave theory of light propagated through 'aether,' and held that every point on a wave is itself a source of new waves.
In 1717, Jean Bernoulli propounded the 'Principle of Virtual Displacements: "Any time there is a state of equilibrium of given forces..., then, the sum of the positive energies will be equal to the sum of the negative energies taken positively" (Bernoulli, quoted in Duhem 1905:432).
Thus the connections which science establishes are "entirely arbitrary," and the "utmost effort of human reason is to reduce the principles, productive of natural phenomena, to a greater simplicity" (Hume 1738:30).

By means of a four-byte sequencing header, and simple synchronization rules, one can split packets among parallel virtual circuits between systems in such a way that packets do not become reordered, or at least the likelihood of this is greatly reduced.
Functional Description The method discussed here is similar to the multilink protocol described in ISO 7776 [4], but offers the additional ability to split and recombine packets, thereby reducing latency, and potentially increase the effective maximum receive unit (MRU).
If the multilink procedure is used in conjunction with PPP reliable transmission, and a member link is not closed gracefully, the implementation should expect to receive packets which violate the increasing sequence number rule.
