Claudius Smith (1736 – January 22, 1779), the notorious Cowboy Terrorist of the American Revolution was the oldest son of David Smith (1701–1787) – a tailor, cattleman, miller, constable, and finally judge – from Brookhaven, New York and Meriam (Williams) Carle from Hempstead, New York the daughter of Samuel Williams.
Antoine-Henri, baron Jomini (March 6, 1779 - March 24, 1869), general in the French and afterwards in the Russian service, and one of the most celebrated writers on the art of war, was born at Payerne in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland, where his father was syndic.
Giacomo Constantino Beltrami (1779 – January 6, 1855) was an Italian jurist, author, and explorer, best known for claiming to have discovered the headwaters of the Mississippi River in 1823 while on a trip through much of the United States (later expeditions determined a different source, however).

 ANTEBELLUM AMERICAN SCIENCE:
The gain was in the suggestion of a greater social impact for science when viewed in a causative relationship to material advancement, while it was loss that science as knowledge was overshadowed in public perceptions by the more obvious economic and life-changing consequences derivative from technology and invention.
Zoology in particular (and the life sciences more generally) constituted the largest area of interest for antebellum scientists, though this was followed closely by geology, which underscores the perception that American science was oriented to a significant degree toward study of the American environment.
Science and science-related employment accounted for 70% of the occupational total for scientists, and employment in multiple positions characterized two-thirds of the scientific population.

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.
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).
In 1742, Jean Le Rond D'Alembert introduced the principle which permitted the reduction of a problem in dynamics to one in statics: Kinetic equilibrium is obtained by inventing a fictional force equal in magnitude to the body in question and opposite in acceleration.

It is anticipated that systematic research into the welfare of farm animals involved in transgenesis will facilitate the use of the safest experimental protocols as well as the selection and propagation of the healthiest animals and, thereby, enable technological progress that could be ethically justified.
There seems to be general agreement among animal scientists that training in contemporary issues is an appropriate goal of animal science curricula.

 NAHSTE: Navigational Aids for the History of Science Technology & the Environment
After much intrigue in which his political connections proved very helpful, he was appointed to the University of Edinburgh's Regius Chair of Natural History in 1779.
He was a popular lecturer at the University and this no doubt contributed to the spread of his ideas amongst the future British politicians, farmers, ministers and lawyers that he taught.
In addition to such contacts, his scientific correspondence broadened when he was appointed Keeper of Edinburgh's Natural History Museum in 1779 and when he was appointed Secretary of the Physical Section of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1783 (which he had helped found in 1782).

 Brain "God": URANTIAGATE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
In other words, as the brain-mapping study progresses, scientists will be taking certain religious experiences out of the "probably" and even the "for sure" boxes and putting them in the "unlikely" box, those which the scientific method indicates belong to the Brain "God".
But it can hardly be considered sane to hold against all logic and reason (as well against as the admittedly incomplete findings of science) the illusion that an experience which has been unconsciously self-generated is actually of divine origin.
(1779 D) Science, along with revelation, is to refine and ennoble man's religion.

The chemical and mineralogical properties of chondrules and experiments designed to reproduce the mineral intergrowths in chondrules showed that they could not possibly have condensed from a gas.
