  Early death may benefit bear-pressured salmon
This column is provided as a public service by the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks, in cooperation with the UAF research community.
Ned Rozell is a science writer at the institute.
While snorkeling in Alaska’s largest lake a few years ago, Stephanie Carlson watched sockeye salmon change from aggressive red creatures with wolfish jaws to drab, lethargic slugs.

  Kant's Philosophy of Science (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
It is of interest to contemporary philosophers of science primarily because of the way in which Kant attempts to articulate a philosophical framework that places substantive conditions on our scientific knowledge of the world while still respecting the autonomy and diverse claims of particular sciences.
The feature of Kant's conception of natural science proper that is most immediately striking is how restrictive it is. It requires that cognition (i) be systematically ordered (ii) according to rational principles and (iii) be known a priori with apodictic certainty, i.e., with "consciousness of their necessity" (4:468).
Kant then uses the claim that science proper requires the construction of the concept of the object in a priori intuition to exclude the possibility that chemistry and psychology, at least as they were practiced at that time, could count as science proper.

  Mars Pathfinder - Science Results Directory
The combination of spectral imaging of the landing area by the lander camera, chemical analyses aboard the rover, and close-up imaging of colors, textures and fabrics with the rover cameras offered the potential of identifying rocks (petrology and mineralogy).
The 3 instruments and rover allowed seven areas of scientific investigation: the geology and geomorphology of the surface, mineralogy and geochemistry of rocks and soils, physical properties of surface materials, magnetic properties of airborne dust, atmospheric science including aerosols, and rotational and orbital dynamics of Mars.
If the (iron-enriched) Shergottite meteorites are typical of the mantle composition, then the mantle must be warmer than Earth's (for the same pressure level) and the core radius must be larger than ~1300 km (but no larger than ~2000 km for other mantle compositions).

 Swedenborg & Science
In this article, I will briefly describe the stages in Swedenborg's life, and outline his mature teachings with particular relevance to what is relevant to the concerns of contemporary science, and to the concerns of those wishing to extend that science.
My task here is not to explain his ideas about ethics, religion and theology, although he would see those as central to his understanding, but to give an introduction to some of the consequences of his teachings with particular relevance to current topics of concern.
Swedenborg gives us the beginning of a detailed theory of psycho-physical correspondences, a branch of science which should be compatible with all the observations of neurophysiology and of psycho-physical connections.

 ScienceDaily: 2006 Is Sixth Warmest Year On Record, Estimates Show
Science Daily — The global mean surface temperature in 2006 is currently estimated to be + 0.42°C above the 1961-1990 annual average (14°C/57.2°F), according to the records maintained by Members of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The year 2006 is currently estimated to be the sixth warmest year on record.
In many countries it was the warmest autumn since official measurements began: records in central England go back to 1659 (1706 in The Netherlands and 1768 in Denmark).

The authors analyzed four discontinuous sets of high-water data from the Liverpool waterfront that span the period 1768-1999, looking for changes in annual maximum high water (tide plus surge), surge at annual maximum high water (surge component of annual maximum high water), and annual maximum surge-at-high-water.
There were no significant trends in the first two parameters over the period of study.  However, the annual maximum surge-at-high-water declined at a rate of 0.11 ± 0.04 meters per century.

The electronic states in quantum dots can be probed by transport when a small *tunnel coupling is allowed between the dot and nearby source and drain leads.
Cronenwett et al (Science 1998 281:540) reported the realization of a tunable Kondo effect in small quantum dots, with the capability of switching a dot from a Kondo system to non-Kondo system as the number of electrons on the dot is changed from odd to even.
The Kondo temperature can be tuned by means of a gate voltage as a single-particle energy state nears the Fermi energy.

 INTERview: Anthony Gierzynski : UVM The View
This term, the court will hear a Vermont case that directly challenges that restrictive precedent.
The decision that emerges from those deliberations, says Anthony Gierzynski, associate professor of political science and author of the campaign finance book Money Rules, could potentially have a bigger impact than the much-ballyhooed McCain-Feingold because it could dramatically open (or restrict) the ability of government to regulate campaign fundraising.
Gierzynski’s own research is a crucial part of the legal mix: Two extensive expert reports he prepared analyzing the effect of spending and contribution limits in Vermont and New Mexico are key part of the factual holdings that underlay the legal defense of the laws.
