 Magnetic Graphite. Physicists at the University of Leipzig   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Physicists at the University of Leipzig have irradiated graphite with protons to produce a lightweight, pure-carbon, metal-free, room temperature magnet.
Pure carbon comes in several notable solid forms - graphite (powdery because with its two dimensional planes of atoms are so loosely bound--hence the use of graphite as a lubricant or pencil lead), diamond (hard because its constituents are well connected to atoms in all 3 dimensions), buckyballs (60-atom soccerballs), and nanotubes.
In the Leipzig experiment, the protons were supplied by a nearby accelerator, and their presence in the sample in small amounts was just enough to inspire a small magnetic ordering among the carbon atoms.

As a working hypothesis, Anders Lundgreen (Uppsala University) suggested Ostwald’s deeply rooted pursuit of unity and harmony, ranging from his earlier attempts at unifying chemistry and physics to his final theoretical and experimental work on color theory and aesthetics.

He went to graduate school at Harvard, studying under psychologist William James, a transitional figure whose later influence depended, to a substantial extent, on his subtle furthering of physiological psychology (under the guise of Pragmatism).
The aim of the teacher is to produce desirable and prevent undesirable changes in human beings by producing and preventing certain responses.
Thorndike based conditioning on what he called the "law of effect," which held that those actions and behaviors leading to satisfaction would be impressed, or stamped in, on the child, and those leading to unsatisfactory results would be stamped out.
