More than two millennia ago, the Greek physician Hippocrates stressed that a competent researcher must ensure that his starting point is knowledge of what has already been discovered. View the JLL record →. al-Razi (10th century CE; 4th century AH). In the 10th century, the Persian physician ...

Research reveals that get-tough tactics may worsen rates of juvenile delinquency
...One set of approaches [to help troubled teens] involves “getting tough” with delinquents by exposing them to strict discipline and attempting to shock them out of future crime. These efforts are popular, in part because they quench the public's understandable thirst for law and order. Yet scientific studies indicate that these interventions are ineffective and can even backfire. Better ways to turn around troubled teens involve teaching them how to engage in positive behaviors rather than punishing them for negative ones.

Web App to visualize Basic Microbiology Lab Techniques:

Data visualization adds dimension and impact to life science subject. By visualization, cold data becomes more comprehensible. It brings the information to the ground level so that readers can understand it more fully and easier to be retained or remembered.

Hello. Is anyone aware of work done to correlate social media communication with impact on science and engineering audiences? Social media’s effect on citation rates, for example? Management at my organization appreciates social media’s efficacy to reach lay audiences, but they’re unconvinced for S&E audiences. Any insight or direction is much appreciated.

A.meemannae lived about 130 million years ago during the Early Cretaceous period. It’s now the earliest member of the Ornithuromorpha clade ever found.

Wondergy, based in Philadelphia, is looking for a top-notch science communicator to travel the country presenting exciting school assemblies where audiences can learn about robots. Explore what makes a robot a robot. How do robots sense?  How do they move?  Take audiences on an interactive journey from simple funny robots to complex (and super cute) humanoid robots.  Explore the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) concepts that bring robotics to life.

Imaginative use of graphics to explain change in attitudes on so-called hot-button social issues in the U.S., from Bloomberg.
As the Supreme Court considers extending same-sex marriage rights to all Americans, we look at the patterns of social change that have tranformed the nation.

Worms hitch a ride aboard the ISS
You could be forgiven for thinking that worms have little in common with us humans, yet astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has been conducting science aboard the International Space Station involving tiny nematode worms (roundworms) to help better understand the effects of space on the human body.

Hello everyone!
If i can have a minute of your time i would like to tell you about a very big thing going on. We all know about scientific journals, and for those  who follow the news within the scientific community, know of the struggles that universities are having with paying the large fees involved.

Here is one of the many articles published about this:
http://www.theguardian.com/science/2012/apr/24/harvard-university-journal-publishers-prices

This has become a very big problem and has not only had a large effect on institutions and universities accessing these journals, but create more problems for those interested in publishing. With the rise of Open-Access most of the funding for scientific journals has been shifted to those who created the papers.

I personally believe in accessibility o he scientific community for everyone equally. I hope to better the system of scientific publishing by creating equal opportunity alike for individuals and entities. While helping fix the issues plaguing our universities.

Find out more about my solution on my new crowdfunding project launched on RocketHub!

Thank you for your time and i will see you in the future!
