  Shinar, The Land of (WebBible Encyclopedia) - ChristianAnswers.Net
Shinar was apparently first peopled by Turanian tribes, who tilled the land and made bricks and built cities.
Then tribes of Semites invaded the land and settled in it, and became its rulers.
This was followed in course of time by an Elamite invasion; from which the land was finally delivered by Khammurabi, the son of Amarpel ("Amraphel, king of Shinar," Gen.

  Shinar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Book of Genesis 10:10, the beginning of Nimrod's kingdom is said to have been "Babel, and Uruk, and Akkad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar." The following chapter, 11:2, states that Shinar was a plain settled after the flood, where mankind, still speaking one language, built the Tower of Babel.
In Genesis 14:1,9 Shinar is the land ruled by king Amraphel, usually identified with Hammurabi, who reigned in Babylon.
"Shinar" is further mentioned in Joshua 7:21; Isaiah 11:11; and Zechariah 5:11, as a general synonym for Babylonia.

 Sensible sensors
Shinar explains that the integration and miniaturization of fluorescence-based sensors is highly desirable because it is the first step towards the development of fluorescence-based sensor arrays that could be used for analysis of living cells and organisms, and biochemical com-pounds.
Shinar's and Kopelman's OLED/optical chemical sensor is unique in the simplicity of integration of the detector and the OLED light source that excites the fluorescence.
Shinar says the integration of the OLED light source, fluorescent sensor and detector makes the whole device a lot more compact and should also permit the development of an array of fluorescent sensors to be driven by an array of OLEDs.

 Shinar
In Gen_11:2 Shinar is described as the land of the plain where migrants from the East settled, and founded Babel, the city, and its great tower.
As the Biblical form Shinar indicates the whole of Babylonia, it corresponds with the native (Sumerian) Kingi-Ura, rendered “Sumer and Akkad,” from which, by changing K into Sh (found in Sumerian), Shinar may have been derived, but this explanation is not free from difficulties.
In the native sculptures, moreover, the non-Semitic type precedes the Semitic; and in the inscriptions the non-Semitic idiom precedes that of the Semitic tranlation.

Shinar also stated that the Governor’s budget was not release until December 19 and VGIN was unable to publicly voice support for the initiatives until after that time.  Therefore, due to time constraints, VGIN was unable to provide the education necessary for the initiatives to be fully understood by the general assembly.
Shinar responded that the finance committee staff did not meet with VGIN staff or even direct questions to the VGIN staff.  Unfortunately, the finance committee staff went to other individuals to collect their information, and came away believing 1 meter satellite imagery would be sufficient for all GIS applications in the Commonwealth.
Shinar mentioned that Senator Trumbo’s legislative district was mapped according to data availability.  This map illustrated how his district was a quilt of data, not a blanket and is.  This was a powerful demonstration of the argument for a consistent foundation for spatial data initiatives.

 New Research Analyzes the Game of Missile Interception
Shinar realized that while existing tactical ballistic missiles (TBMs) such as the Scud are designed to follow a fixed trajectory, it would not require a great technological leap to develop TBMs that can maneuver intentionally.
In true gamesmanship fashion, Shinar applied the gambit of anticipating the development of maneuverable TBMs, and went about creating what he calls a "guidance law" that considers the worst evasive moves, thereby improving the homing accuracy of future defensive systems.
Though Shinar's guidance law was conceived against TBMs (with a range of about 600 to 1,200 miles), there is no theoretical reason why his law could not eventually be applied to longer-range incoming Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs).

Shinar indicated that legislation required that each agency and university or college in the Commonwealth report by June 30, 1998 to the VGIN Division, information on all the data which they currently use in geographic information systems (GIS).
Shinar indicated the VGIN Web site needed to be updated, but remodeling in the CIM/VGIN offices and changes in staff responsibilities within CIM and the Year 2000 Project Office had limited access to the server.

 New standard in sensor technology
The new sensor grew out of a basic research effort by Ames Laboratory senior physicist Joseph Shinar and members of his group to study the photophysics of luminescent organic thin films and organic light-emitting devices, or OLEDs-those that luminesce, or emit light, when a voltage is applied.
He explained that fluorescence-based chemical sensing devices, in general, include three components: a light source that excites the sensing element, the sensing element that produces the fluorescence (usually a fluorescent dye that is used to tag the sample under investigation), and a photodetector that responds to the fluorescence of the sensor.
Shinar said they had used front detection instead of back detection with the oxygen-sensor prototype.

Shinar explained that cord blood has many characteristics that make it extremely valuable in the fight against malignancies, especially cancers of the blood such as leukemia.
In Canada, Shinar said, the initial harvesting of the cord blood costs more than $500 and an annual fee is levied to store the blood, whereas Israel’s National Cord Blood Bank Services provides this service at no cost to the mother.

Those who desired to forget their Creator and to cast off the restraint of His law felt a constant annoyance from the teaching and example of their God-fearing associates, and after a time they decided to separate from the worshipers of God.

And this, we are told, was “In the land of Shinar” (Genesis 11:2).
Thus we see that at the beginning, the land of Shinar and the city of Babylon were the scene of confederate evil, and of judgment from the hand of God.
But though Shinar and its capital are referred to in Genesis 10 and 11, and though there are occasional allusions to them in the centuries that followed, it was not until Israel’s apostasy had been fully manifested that we find Babylon coming into the place of prominence and dominion.

The origin of Babylon was Babel in the land of Shinar.
Shinar is a region in Mesopotamia, the plain between the Tigris and the Euphrates.
“Shinar” is derived from ‘sheni,’ ‘two,’ and ‘ar,’ or ‘nahr,’ ‘rivers.’” “The ancient Greeks gave to the land embraced by the Tigris and Euphrates the name of Mesopotamia, which means ‘the land between the rivers.’” Differences in geological structure divide this valley into two districts.

The sensor technology is based on research by Joseph Shinar, PhD, senior physicist at Ames, and colleagues to study the photophysics of luminescent organic thin films and organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs).
Describing the back-detection design, Shinar explains that the sensor "is in contact with the biological solution on the substrate, and your OLED light source is behind the substrate." Shinar says, "It's like a sandwich: sample solution, sensor, substrate, OLED.
Shinar also believes that the collaborators will be able to develop a prototype for a glucose sensor in the near future.

 Daily Bible Study - The Land of Shinar
The Land of Shinar was a general geographic term for what is today Iraq, known in ancient times as Mesopotamia (see also Bible Places).
Shinar is mentioned very early in Bible History, it being the location of the famous "tower of Babel" that was constructed after the Flood.
And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits [that is, Bitumen]; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain." (Genesis 14:1-10 KJV)
