  understanding hype cycles
Since 1995, Gartner has used Hype Cycles to characterize the over-enthusiasm or "hype" and subsequent disappointment that typically happens with the introduction of new technologies (see Understanding Gartner's Hype Cycles) for an introduction to the Hype Cycle concepts).
The first phase of a Hype Cycle is the "technology trigger" or breakthrough, product launch or other event that generates significant press and interest.

 Menstrual cycle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The menstrual cycle is the set of recurring physiological changes in a female's body that are under the control of the reproductive hormone system and necessary for reproduction.
During the menstrual cycle, the sexually mature female body releases one egg (or occasionally two, which might result in dizygotic, or non-identical, twins) at the time of ovulation.
The medical term for cycles with intervals of 21 days or fewer is polymenorrhea and, on the other hand, the term for cycles with intervals exceeding 35 days is oligomenorrhea (or amenorrhea if intervals exceed 180 days).

 Water Cycle Encyclopedia Article, Information, History and Biography @ HillCountryArtists.com   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The water cycle—technically known as the hydrologic cycle—is the circulation of water within the earth's hydrosphere, involving changes in the physical state of water between liquid, solid, and gas phases.
The hydrologic cycle refers to the continuous exchange of water between atmosphere, land, surface and subsurface waters, and organisms.
In addition to storage in various compartments (the ocean is one such "compartment"), the multiple cycles that make up the earth's water cycle involve five main physical actions: evaporation, precipitation, infiltration, runoff, and subsurface flow:

 The Water Cycle, from USGS Water Science Basics. Diagram available in 60+ languages
Earth's water is always in movement, and the water cycle, also known as the hydrologic cycle, describes the continuous movement of water on, above, and below the surface of the Earth.
Since the water cycle is truly a "cycle," there is no beginning or end.
The water in the apple you ate yesterday may have fallen as rain half-way around the world last year or could have been used 100 million years ago by Mama Dinosaur to give her baby a bath.

 The Eukaryotic Cell Cycle and Cancer
Cell cycle research has primarily been performed on mutant strains of the fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe) and the budding yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisae) that have genetic lesions in some phase of the cell cycle.
The cell cycle in yeast has two points where it is committed to proceed to the next stage in the cycle.
To demonstrate the molecular events associated with the cell cycle in more detail, a discussion that links the genetic research with the biochemical research will be presented.

 Scientists at odds over sunspot cycle
Scientists are deadlocked over the severity of the next sunspot cycle, which could produce powerful solar storms capable of disrupting communication systems on Earth.
The intensity of the next sunspot cycle could have consequences for the aging Hubble Space Telescope, which has beamed back stunning images of star births and galaxies, said Dean Pesnell, a project scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center who predicts a weak solar cycle.
A weak cycle would mean that Hubble would experience less atmospheric drag and stay in orbit longer while a strong cycle could force NASA to boost the telescope so that it stays in place, Pesnell said.

 Sunspot Cycle Predictions   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Predicting the behavior of a sunspot cycle is fairly reliable once the cycle is well underway (about 3 years after the minimum in sunspot number occurs [see Hathaway, Wilson, and Reichmann Solar Physics 151, 177 (1994)]).
Relationships have been found between the size of the next cycle maximum and the length of the previous cycle, the level of activity at sunspot minimum, and the size of the previous cycle.
He found a relationship between the number of days during a sunspot cycle in which the geomagnetic field was "disturbed" and the amplitude of the next sunspot maximum.

 Great Plant Escape- Life Cycle
A plant's life cycle describes how long a plant lives or how long it takes to grow, flower, and set seed.
Underground parts may regrow new stems as in the case of herbaceous plants, or the stems may live for many years like woody plants (trees).
It grows vegetatively (produces leaves) one season, goes dormant or rests over the winter, and then grows flowers, sets seed, and dies the second season.

 The Cell Cycle
The passage of a cell through the cell cycle is controlled by proteins in the cytoplasm.
Nonetheless, passage through the cell cycle in meiosis I (as well as meiosis II, which is essentially a mitotic division) uses many of the same players, e.g., MPF and APC.
The cell seems to monitor the presence of the Okazaki fragments on the lagging strand during DNA replication.

 Beginner FAQ: The Nitrogen Cycle
In aquaria-speak, the ``nitrogen cycle'' (more precisely, the nitrification cycle) is the biological process that converts ammonia into other, relatively harmless nitrogen compounds.
To determine when the cycle has completed, buy appropriate test kits (see the TEST KIT section) and measure the levels yourself, or bring water samples to your fish store and let them perform the test for you (perhaps for a small fee).
The nitrogen cycle can be sped up or ``jump started'' in a number of ways.

SAN FRANCISCO — Scientists are deadlocked over the severity of the next sunspot cycle, which could produce powerful solar storms that can disrupt communication systems on Earth.
Governments and companies increasingly rely on space weather forecasts to guard against possible failures of power grids and radio communications when solar storms explode with massive bursts of magnetic energy and radiation that barrel toward Earth at millions of miles per hour.
Scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research made headlines earlier this year when they predicted that solar cycle 24 will be between 30 percent and 50 percent stronger than the current one and will begin a year later.
