 Narrative-Breakdown of the Learning Technologies Timeline
            While scanning the events presented as part of the Learning Technologies Timeline, I couldn’t help but wonder whether there were patterns in the way the human society’s technology and know-how have developed.
  Timelines are made so that we can evaluate the past; this timeline is different in that we must also evaluate, or predict, the future.
  The timeline is perfectly accurate in portraying the past; the timeline is great at producing the present.

 NOAA Magazine Online (Story 84)
The Climate TimeLine, which was developed by NOAA staff in Boulder, Colo., is scheduled for launch this year on March 27 during the National Science Teachers Association's National Convention.
The conceptual design for the Climate TimeLine is based on the "powers of 10" framework for temporal scaling and causal forcing put forth by J. Murray Mitchell of NOAA's former Environmental Data Service in his 1976 article "An Overview of Climatic Variability and Its Causal Mechanisms" in Quarternary Research.
In July of 2002, the prototype of the Climate TimeLine was evaluated by Elizabeth Grassi and Heather Smith from the University of Colorado's College of Education who interviewed, observed and surveyed undergraduate, high school and middle school students along with climate experts and science teachers.

The Exponential Man ate the sun less than a day ago, and the Looniearth is already beginning to freeze solid.
"The Exponential Man was first detected some thirty-eight hours ago, at a point on the far side of the sun and skewed slightly to one side." She taped a few keys on the consol before her and brought up an image on the display screen at the front of the room.
Even if the expansion of the Exponential Man were slow enough to actually allow time for it, this world would become uninhabitable for life as we know it within approximately another twenty-seven hours.

The timeline includes summaries of the major cases of seizures of diverted weapons-usable nuclear materials to date.
Because energy is released each time the atom splits, this exponential chain reaction of energy release can quite quickly result in a nuclear explosion under the right conditions.
Moreover, as the cases listed in this timeline show, there have been enough incidents to show that it is possible for nuclear weapons materials to reach the fl market as well.

 EcoFuture™ Population and Sustainability - Exponential Growth and The Rule of 70
The issues of the 21st Century are migration, aging, the youth bulge, urbanization, and all of the very new and very serious socio-economic-political consequences, as well as continued growth in the developing world and, of course, pressures on resources and the environment - global and local.
The use of natural logs arises from integrating the basic differential equation for exponential growth: dN/dt = rN, over the period from t=0 to t = the time period in question, where N is the quantity growing and r is the growth rate.
For the results to be accurate, all of these calculations assume that the growth rate remains unchanged throughout the interval in question, that is, that the growth is exponential at the average rate for the entire period.

 Logarithm   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
The others are the radical, which can be used to find b (b is the nth root of x), and the exponential function, which can be used to find x (x is the nth power of b).
The logarithm functions are the inverses of the exponential functions.
Logarithms convert multiplication to addition, division to subtraction (making them isomorphisms between the field operations), exponentiation to multiplication, and roots to division (making logarithms crucial to slide rule construction).

In the absence of selection and in an infinite random mating population, the amount of linkage disequilibrium undergoes exponential decay at a rate equal to the recombination rate between the two loci, as shown by the figure.
In other words, the difference between the actual frequency of a haplotype and its random proportion decreases each generation by a factor equal to the recombination rate between the loci.
Figure: recombination between the loci breaks down the linkage disequilibrium, which decays at an exponential rate equal to the recombination rate between the loci.

Comer relates the exponentiality of the expansion in chart form, the numbers are reproduced here as the logarithmic plot in figure 3.8
This growth manifested itself as periods of lowered bandwidth and increased delays, and caused researchers at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories (LBL) to question the mechanism employed by the current implementation of TCP to combat congestion.
The exponential increase was enough to let TCP feel-out a connection's bandwidth and delay statistics while allowing the network to acclimate itself to the increase in load.

This Timeline of the Universe is a brief summary of the events that have taken place and will take place in the Universe as we know it.
This timeline does not attempt to replace other more detailed references, such as the timeline of the Big Bang, but rather it attempts to be a starting point to help those find more detailed information on the how the Universe has evolved and likely may evolve.
The timeline, while illustrated and detailed, can be somewhat misleading.
