For those that say there is no trace of Taino blood, please read and share: Indigenous Puerto Rico: DNA evidence upsets established history Indian Country Today - 2003 By Rick Kearns History is written by the conquerors. The Native peoples of North America know this all too well, as they are still trying to bring the truth to light. Now, their long-lost Caribbean cousins are beginning the same process. It’s an uphill battle. Most Puerto Ricans know, or think they know, their ethnic and racial history: a blending of Taino (Indian), Spanish and African. Students of the islands’ past have read the same account for over 300 years; that the Native people, and their societies, were killed off by the Spanish invaders by the 1600s. It was always noted though, how many of the original colonists married Taino women or had Taino concubines, producing the original mestizaje (mixture) that, when blended with African, would produce Puerto Ricans. Those first unions, according to the conventional wisdom, explain why ...

With all the recent M-class solar flares and coronal mass ejections, let's talk about space weather. And just in time for that, here is one particular study. A space weather storm from the Sun engulfed our planet on January 21, 2005. The event got its start on January 20, when a cloud of solar material, a coronal mass ejection or CME, burst off the Sun and headed toward Earth. When it arrived at our planet, the ring current and radiation belts surrounding Earth swelled with extra particles, while the aurora persisted for six hours. Both of these are usually signs of a very large storm – indeed, this was one of the largest outpouring of solar protons ever monitored from the Sun. But the storm barely affected the magnetic fields around Earth – disturbances in these fields can affect power grids on the ground, a potential space weather effect keenly watched for by a society so dependent on electricity. Janet Kozyra, a space scientist at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, thought this intriguing com ...

Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants are collecting in the atmosphere like a thickening blanket, trapping the sun's heat and causing the planet to warm up. Although local temperatures fluctuate naturally, over the past 50 years the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. Scientists say that unless we curb the emissions that cause climate change, average U.S. temperatures could be 3 to 9 degrees higher by the end of the century. The United States Global Change Research Program (which includes the Department of Defense, NASA, National Science Foundation and other government agencies) has said that "global warming is unequivocal and primarily human-induced" and that "climate changes are underway in the United States and are projected to grow."

"Outreach Key to Increasing STEM Student Population" (HuffingtonPost.com - June 24, 2014) Education News: The City College of New York, City College Academy of the Arts EXCERPT: I eagerly await the opening of the City College Center for Discovery and Innovation, a 200,000-square-foot facility on our south campus that will house laboratories and offices for our top researchers. The grand opening, scheduled for the fall, will cap a remarkable year for science and engineering at The City College of New York that has seen our students earn seven National Science Foundation graduate research fellowships, seven NIST summer fellowships and three Salk scholarships, plus numerous other honors and accolades. While I am excited about our students' success and the opportunities that await them once our new state-of-the-art facility is operational, I am also concerned about the dearth of students who want to major in the STEM disciplines - science, technology, engineering and mathematics - especially women and underre ...

Learning their Indian River Lagoon lessons Indian River State students study real-world marine biology By Madison Fantozzi madison.fantozzi772-221-4225 FORT PIERCE — Lynn Hoke has a passion for marine science paired with a mission to get kids excited about the Indian River Lagoon. The 35-year-old Stuart resident graduated from Indian River State College in May with a bachelor’s in middle school science education, but she’s taking her education a step further to better educate Treasure Coast’s future generations on lagoon issues. Hoke is participating in the college’s Research Experience for Pre-Service Teachers. The program, which is 4 years old and funded by the National Science Foundation, gives aspiring teachers experience inthelabandfield, 175hours of it. The seven-week summer program has inspired Hoke to bring local research into her future classroom. “I don’t want to simply tell them about the decline of organisms and the health of water,” Hoke said. “Kids need visuals.

Red dwarf stars tell us how planets form: The vast majority of the stars in our galaxy are known as "red dwarfs," small, cool bodies visible only through a telescope. "They are the silent majority, a population historically underrepresented, meaning unstudied," says Andrew West. "Despite being ubiquitous, they are very faint, making them challenging to observe." But, the National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded scientist and assistant professor in Boston University's department of astronomy thinks it is important to study them. He is convinced that the resulting information will help us learn how all stars form, and may provide "a small piece of the puzzle of trying to understand our place in the universe," he says. "Understanding how the smallest stars form informs us as to how the planets form, and helps answer the question: Are we alone?" Because red dwarfs are so common, they are more likely than other stars to have planets around them, a fact that makes astronomers wonder whether they present the bes ...

Today in computer history: The Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center opened to support the precursor to the modern Internet, the National Science Foundation's NSFNET, which linked five supercomputer centers at Princeton University, Pittsburgh, University of California at San Diego, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Cornell University. Soon, several regional networks developed. Eventually, the government reassigned pieces of the ARPANET to the NSFNET. The NSF allowed commercial use of the Internet for the first time in 1991, and in 1995, it decommissioned the backbone, leaving the Internet a self-supporting industry.

I am finding this SO hard to believe even though I just read it in a study posted by Sandra, on Alternet/CJ Werleman; America remains a scientifically ignorant nation for two reasons: the resurgence of fundamentalist religion during the past 40 years, and secondly, the low level of science education in American elementary and secondary schools, as well as many tertiary colleges. While television ratings for Cosmos may have stunned media critics and your average fundamentalist, “Americans continue to poll more like Iranians or Nigerians than Europeans or Canadians on questions of evolution, scriptural inerrancy, the presence of angels and demons, and so forth.” This week, Gallup released a poll showing 42 percent of Americans still believe God created human beings in their present form less than 10,000 years ago. Last week, the Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire published a study showing only 28 percent of Tea Party Republicans trust scientists. (Seriously! Seriously?) It gets worse. . ...

Plus, tourism at the Jersey Shore and the fishing industry will certainly be adversely affected.

COURTESY THE OBAMA White House … PRESENTING, FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT PLEASURE … “CLIMATE CHANGE THE MUSICAL”: FEDS SPENT $700,000 ON A CLIMATE CHANGE MUSICAL Posted by Austin Petersen,The Libertarian Republic, 29 Mar 2014 report by By Michael Bastasch]: It looks like the National Science Foundation has been handing out grants for some unorthodox research projects, according to House Republicans. This includes $700,000 in funding for a climate change musical. House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith questioned White House science czar John Holdren in a Thursday hearing over whether or not the National Science Foundation (NSF) should have to justify its use of taxpayer dollars to fund projects.

New findings show that the universe underwent a burst of inflation that was seemingly faster than the speed of light in the first instant of its existence, throwing off a storm of exotic gravitational waves in the process, NBC News reports. The results support a concept known as inflationary Big Bang theory. The evidence comes from the BICEP2 experiment at the South Pole, which captures and analyzes the faint glow left over from the Big Bang. One of the pioneers of inflationary Big Bang theory, Stanford physicist Andrei Linde, said Monday's revelation was "something I have been hoping to see for 30 years."

The first message was sent over the ARPANet, which evolved into the internet, from computer science Professor Leonard Kleinrock's laboratory at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), after the second piece of network equipment was installed at Stanford Research Institute (SRI). Packet switched networks such as ARPANET, Mark I at NPL in the UK, CYCLADES, Merit Network, Tymnet, and Telenet, were developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s using a variety of protocols. The ARPANET in particular led to the development of protocols for internetworking, in which multiple separate networks could be joined together into a network of networks. In 1982, the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) was standardized, and consequently, the concept of a world-wide network of interconnected TCP/IP networks, called the Internet, was introduced. Access to the ARPANET was expanded in 1981 when the National Science Foundation (NSF) d ...

Trenton mayoral candidates Paul Perez, a consultant, and Jim Golden, who is retired, continue to demonstrate that they only thing that they can offer the people of Trenton are attacks on Eric Jackson; attacks on his accomplishments, attacks on his strong character; attacks on his signal work history; attacks on his work with Trenton's spiritual leaders. Here is what you should know: During his long public service, Mr. Jackson has evolved into exactly the kind of leader that our beleaguered city needs. It is vital that we elect a professional who understands the complexities of running a municipal government amid the politics of an indifferent Statehouse. Mr. Golden and Mr. Perez lack these fundamental skills. Mr. Golden was police director for two years before he took a job in Philadelphia. Mr. Perez, an Army veteran, worked as an executive at the National Science Foundation, which is by no means a city whose residents require a municipal government that works, that can deliver basic services, successfull ...

Who owns the Internet? There is no dedicated owner of the whole Internet. There are thousands, and millions, and billions of people who own internet. Each network is owned by someone and has a network operation center from where it is centrally controlled. However, it is not owned by any single authority and has no network operation center of its own. Today, Internet plays the most vital role in day-to-day activity. The pieces of the infrastructure is owned by many organizations, corporations, governments, schools, private citizens and service providers, but there is no one body who rules or owns it all. There are different companies who oversee and standardize what happens on the Internet. It is the responsibility of some of the organizations to assign IP addresses and domain names, such as National Science Foundation, the Internet Engineering Task, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, etc.

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE PLANES (11 of 12) After dropping off supplies at a field research camp in Antarctica, this LC-130 Hercules taxied to a likely stretch for take-off but suddenly sank on one side into a weak spot in the snow. Underneath lay a crevasse 134 feet deep. It took six weeks in November-December 1998 for a repair team to replace one of the engines and two propellers. The NY Air Guard’s 109th Airlift Wing flies the Hercules on Skis for the National Science Foundation base at McMurdo Station. Note the upturned ski under the nose. The pods under the wings are part of a jet-assisted take-off (JATO) system -- needed for extra push on soft snow.

Early PCs. [1] My first computer was a main-frame at The University of Georgia in 1979. It filled up many rooms, had a raised floor for the miles of wires, it was air conditioned to almost freezing, since that made the electrons move better. We communicated with this whopper computer using punch cards. A line of programing on a separate card. I recall writing a loop to be used for multiplication. It was based on a “1” and a “0” with “1” meaning electricity on and a “0” for electricity off. We developed and typed the punch cards. We took our stack of cards and viewed the monster through plate class windows. We often had to wait Army’s Redstone Arsenal, in Alabama.

Lo que dice Moody's de la UPR: CHALLENGES *University of Puerto Rico is highly reliant on commonwealth operating support which represents 66.9% of total operating revenues (compared to the public university median of 25.9% in fiscal year (FY) 2012) and that dependence is projected to increase. *Liquidity is weak with only $99 million of unrestricted monthly liquidity or 32 monthly days for FY 2012. The university has relied on the Government Development Bank for liquidity and financial management support. No additional financial support has been provided during the past two years, although the GDB permitted conversion of a previous working capital revolving facility to a ten-year term loan. *The university owns and operates Servicios Medicos Universitarios (SMU), its academic medical center with a 55% Medicaid payor share that produced substantial operating losses and reported a $20.4 million accumulated deficit at June 30, 2012. In addition to hospital patient care revenue, 10% of the university's operat ...

Is astrology scientific? A lot of us think so. According to a new study released by the National Science Foundation, Americans are less skeptical of astrology than they have been at any time in the last thirty years. Over that time period, researchers have periodically posed this question: “Would you say that astrology is very scientific, sort of scientific, or not at all scientific?” On the Mother Jones website, Chris Mooney describes the response: “A substantial minority of Americans, ranging from 31 to 45 percent depending on the year, say they consider astrology either ‘very scientific’ or ‘sort of scientific.’ That’s bad enough—the NSF report compares it with China, where 92 percent of the public does not believe in horoscopes—but the new evidence suggests we are also moving in the wrong direction. Indeed, the percentage of Americans who say astrology is scientifically bunk has been declining ever since a high point for astrology skepticism in 2004, when it hit 66 percent.” Moo ...
The BES annual report to the National Science Foundation has been submitted and accepted. A summary of activities, findings, and contributions for 2013 appears here:
It seems that almost every day there is another story about pollution of one form or another, in the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe. Very often our own actions lead to that pollution and in many cases we can do something about it. These notes explain how you can investigate sea pollution and advise on positive action to improve our seas and the beaches. Polluting the seas The seas and oceans receive the brunt of human waste, whether it is by deliberate dumping or by natural run-off from the land. In fact over 80% of all marine pollution comes from land-based activities and many pollutants are deposited in estuaries and coastal waters. Here the pollutants enter marine food chains, building up their concentrations until they reach toxic levels. It often takes human casualties to alert us to pollution and such was the case in Minimata Bay in Japan when many people died as a result of a pollutant building up in food chains. A factory was discharging waste containing methyl mercury in l ...
National Science Foundation (NSF): Nanomotors are controlled, for the first time inside living cells
I just found out about an interesting organization. It's called Equitable Math Pathways. Here's what their flyer says: "Equitable Math Pathways (EMP) is an evidence-based professional development training, funded by the National Science Foundation's Gender in Science and Engineering program, that can transform math teachers' knowledge and practices about gender equity in the middle/high school classroom." This is awesome, because teachers, often unknowingly, will skip over the female students and pay more attention to the males, especially in math and science classes. EMP's Objective: "EMP's goal is to expand the pipeline for girls in high school math and science by integrating gender equity into a successful professional development program for middle school math teachers. EMP seeks to address persistent myths about gender and math performance among teachers that ultimately impact the recruitment and retention of girls in high school STEM classes." Available online: Resources for Teachers -EMP Presentati ...

Last Friday’s online edition of the New York Times offers an interesting article about picking a college. One tidbit of information that caught my eye was from The National Science Foundation that lists schools with a record of sending undergraduates for science and engineering Ph.D.’s. Reed College in Portland sends a higher percentage than Princeton or Harvard. So if your goal is a top grad school, you might want to seek out an undergrad program with a track record of achievement and an easier path to acceptance. – Kevin
Learn why I gave up a career as a molecular geneticist to become a chiropractor! Untouchable at Birth Soon after I was born I was given a shot of penicillin to treat a minor infection. My body reacted violently. Hospitalized for weeks with swollen joints and rheumatoid arthritis-like symptoms, the painful inflammation made it impossible to be held or even touched. The heavy doses of corticosteroids damaged my endocrine and immune systems. I eventually recovered only to face another health crisis. Sent Home to Die As an amateur scientist in elementary school, I would collect water samples from the little stream that ran behind the playground. Under a microscope I’d spend hours studying algae and anything else I could find. I didn’t know that upstream, General Electric was discharging waste transformer oil contaminated with cancer causing PCBs (Agent Orange). The lump I found in my neck glands at age 12 was diagnosed as Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Even with the radiation treatment, I was given no more than a ...
The Hadley-Luzerne Public Library 19 Main Street Lake Luzerne was awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation to host a free four-part reading, viewing and discussion series for adults called Pushing the Limits. The series brings together books and video featuring authors, scientists and everyday people who thrive on exploring our world. Since the beginning of time, humans have imagined and achieved ways to push the boundaries of the physical world. We want to be stronger, smarter and more aware and we create stories to bring those dreams to life. With advances in science and technology, we find ways in which all of us are able to push the limits of what is possible and make some of those stories come true. The Pushing the Limits program will explore these ideas in discussions that will include feature film quality videos of author interviews and human interest stories and recommended popular books. Book discussions will be led by Rosemary Millham, an Assistant Professor at the State University of ...

B brain-computer interface allows people to use only their thoughts to control a flying quadcopter With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), biomedical engineer Bin He and his team at the University of Minnesota have created a brain-computer interface with the goal of helping people with disabilities, such as paralysis, regain the ability to do everyday tasks. Currently, the researchers are testing out their system using a flying object known as a quadcopter, and controlling it with someone's thoughts! For the experiments, the team uses both an actual flying quadcopter and a virtual one. In both experiments, the interface is non-invasive, so there are no implants. Participants wear an electro-encephalography, or EEG, cap with 64 electrodes. When the participant thinks about a specific movement, neurons in his or her brain's motor cortex produce tiny electric signals, which are sent to a computer. The computer processes the signals and sends directions through a Wi-Fi system to direct the qu ...

This Behind the Scenes article was provided to LiveScience in partnership with the National Science Foundation. "This is not my day job," begins Michel Barsoum as he recounts his foray into the mysteries of the Great Pyramids of Egypt. As a well respected researcher in the field of ceramics, Barsoum never expected his career to take him down a path of history, archaeology, and "political" science, with materials research mixed in. As a distinguished professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University, his daily routine consists mainly of teaching students about ceramics, or performing research on a new class of materials, the so-called MAX Phases, that he and his colleagues discovered in the 1990s. These modern ceramics are machinable, thermal-shock resistant, and are better conductors of heat and electricity than many Metals making them potential candidates for use in nuclear Power plants, the automotive industry, jet engines, and a range of other high-demand systems.

Weather broadcasters across the USA rely on the National Weather Service for forecasts. The NWS gets its weather modeling from Raytheon, which is partnered with the American Meteorological Society and the National Science Foundation on the federal Weather Modification Operations and Research Board. The third-largest US weapons giant also owns General Dynamics, the world’s leading manufacturer of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Researcher Brendan Bombaci reports that weather data is streamed to NOAA and the NWS through Raytheon’s Advanced Weather Information Processing System, which links its supercomputers directly with its weather drones. [Raytheon] Raytheon also owns the HAARP patent. The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program uses a steerable billion-watt transmitter in Gakona, Alaska to heat the ionosphere.

Faith and Foolishness: When Religious Beliefs Become Dangerous Religious leaders should be held accountable when their irrational ideas Jul 1, 2010 |By Lawrence M. Krauss Every two years the National Science Foundation produces a report, Science and Engineering Indicators, designed to probe the public’s understanding of science concepts. And every two years we relearn the sad fact that U.S. adults are less willing to accept evolution and the big bang as factual than adults in other industrial countries. Except for this time. Was there suddenly a quantum leap in U.S. science literacy? Sadly, no. Rather the National Science Board, which oversees the foundation, chose to leave the section that discussed these issues out of the 2010 edition, claiming the questions were “flawed indicators of scientific knowledge because responses conflated knowledge and beliefs.” In short, if their religious beliefs require respondents to discard scientific facts, the board doesn’t think it appropriate to expose that t ...
