By: Kenneth Olden, Ph. D.

The latter part of the 20th century was marked by a series of rapid advances in genomics-based biotechnology. One such advance was the emergence of the field of toxicogenomics — the collection, interpretation and storage of information about gene and protein activity in order to identify toxic substances in the environment and those populations at the greatest risk of environmental diseases. The National Center for Toxicogenomics (NCT) was created to promote the evolutio...

By: Edgar Rice Burroughs

?The entire affair is shrouded in mystery,? said D?Arnot. ?I have it on the best of authority that neither the police nor the special agents of the general staff have the faintest conception of how it was accomplished. All they know, all that anyone knows, is that Nikolas Rokoff has escaped.? John Clayton, Lord Greystoke?he who had been ?Tarzan of the Apes??sat in silence in the apartments of his friend, Lieutenant Paul D?Arnot, in Paris, gazing meditatively at the toe o...

By: H.J.M. Hanley

Technical Reference Publication

Introduction: The transport properties of argon, krypton, xenon, nitrogen, and oxygen are discussed in this paper. Our objectives are to evaluate viscosity-coefficient (?) and thermal-conductivity-coefficient (A) measurements, to establish equations to represent selected data, and to generate tables of recommended values. Tables of the coefficients are presented for temperatures (T1 extending from about the triple point temperature to 500 K, and for pressures (P) up to 100 MPa.

By: Florentin Smarandache

The fourth volume, in my book series of “Collected Papers”, includes 100 published and unpublished articles, notes, (preliminary) drafts containing just ideas to be further investigated, scientific souvenirs, scientific blogs, project proposals, small experiments, solved and unsolved problems and conjectures, updated or alternative versions of previous papers, short or long humanistic essays, letters to the editors

This short technical paper advocates a bootstrapping algorithm from which we can form a statistically reliable opinion based on limited clinically observed data, regarding whether an osteo-hyperplasia could actually be a case of Ewing’s osteosarcoma. The basic premise underlying our methodology is that a primary bone tumour, if it is indeed Ewing’s osteosarcoma, cannot increase in volume beyond some critical limit without showing metastasis. We propose a statistical meth...

A few years ago I projected a study of the modern ?corporation question,? and intended to clear the ground for the subject by a...
