  E/CN.17/1995/16 Science for Sustainable Development
Recognizing that science and technology are essential for both economic (including industrial and agricultural) development and for the protection of the environment, increasing numbers of Governments now integrate science and technology into their national development plans.
The science addressed in chapter 35 is intended to provide the knowledge base for sustainable development and must therefore be designed to cover all facets of the complex problems of environment and development as they appear at the global, regional, and local levels.
Science related to environment and sustainable development needs, by definition, to be based both on national scientific programmes and activities and on international scientific cooperation.

 Mario Molina - Autobiography
I was already fascinated by science before entering high school; I still remember my excitement when I first glanced at paramecia and amoebae through a rather primitive toy microscope.
Keeping with our family tradition of sending their children abroad for a couple of years, and aware of my interest in chemistry, I was sent to a boarding school in Switzerland when I was 11 years old, on the assumption that German was an important language for a prospective chemist to learn.
Sherry and I decided to exchange information with the atmospheric sciences community: we went to Berkeley to confer with Professor Harold Johnston, whose work on the impact of the release of nitrogen oxides from the proposed supersonic transport (SST) aircraft on the stratospheric ozone layer was well known to us.

The Electronic Telegraph Thursday 28 September 1995 Science This summer the Royal Observatory at Herstmonceux found new life as a science centre.
But this was Fabricators' Week at the Herstmonceux Science Centre, with exhibitors from science centres all over Europe arriving to demonstrate prototypes of experiments they hoped to produce as hands-on displays - a tube of rocket-propelled rubber balls, a solar-powered toy car, a model of planetary movement.
All the exhibits, demonstrating phenomena as diverse as the electrical effects of lightning and the length of sound waves, were designed to be operated by children.

 Cognitive Science
Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of mind and intelligence, embracing philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, linguistics, and anthropology.
Cognitive science has unifying theoretical ideas, but we have to appreciate the diversity of outlooks and methods that researchers in different fields bring to the study of mind and intelligence.
Although the computational-representational approach to cognitive science has been successful in explaining many aspects of human problem solving, learning, and language use, some philosophical critics such as Hubert Dreyfus (1992) and John Searle (1992) have claimed that this approach is fundamentally mistaken.

The conscientious science student may argue that some truths have held out much longer than that, though scientists also know that this year's unpopular hypothesis may turn out to be next year's accepted truth.
In a recent article about science and the Chesapeake Bay, Don Boesch, President of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, referred to a "history of heresies," scientific findings that went against the grain of generally accepted principles, until they were finally incorporated into the public mind.
Ken Tenore's interest in ethics and science led him to spend his sabbatical at Notre Dame as a visiting scholar in the Reilly Center for Science, Technology and Values, where he pursued further study in the philosophy of science.

The degree to which recurrent neural networks generalize is partly dependent on the fixed architecture of the network, and in particular on the number of hidden nodes.
Bayesian learning methods for neural networks (MacKay, 1995) should be able to solve this problem, by placing a prior probability distribution on network structures and parameter values, although I am not aware of any applications of such networks to models of language acquisition.
Chomsky (1995) has argued that the language faculty of the mind should satisfy ‘general conditions of conceptual naturalness that have some independent plausibility, namely, simplicity, economy, symmetry, nonredundancy, and the like’ (p.
