Science and Technology Resources on the Internet Astronomical Resources on the Internet Joe Kraus References Astronomical information has been available online since the early days of the Internet. Physicists were early adopters of the Internet and the web, and astronomers were not far behind. For example, when comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 struck the planet Jupiter back in July 1994, images taken of the event were immediately put onto the web. People from all over the world could see the images as soon as they were posted, and professional astronomers could immediately download scientific data. This was one of the first major scientific events that demonstrated the power of the Internet and the ability of the astronomical community to share scientific images and data quickly with the public ( Egret and Heck 1994 Many astronomical organizations have been ahead of the curve in utilizing the Internet for electronic publication. "The physics and astronomy communities have been among the first involved in EP [electronic publishing], even before the concept itself existed per se. Astronomers, space physicists, high-energy physicists and their colleagues around the world have done more than just help in setting up the Internet and the associated networks. They jumped onto the World-Wide Web (WWW) and quickly became prolific producers and eager consumers..." (
Internet Resources For Demographers exclusively on world Wide Web resources, this paper both indexes resources In terms of Internet offerings, similarities exist between dataset, U.K. spatial data available to U.K http://popindex.princeton.edu/Articles/internetpaper.html
Extractions: Population Index 63(2):189-204. Summer 1997. Thomas A. Gryn This paper provides a description of demographic resources available on the Internet. These resources include census data, online databases, and home sites of demographic organizations. The description of demographic Internet resources is divided into five sections: North American demography, international demography, general interest items, health-related sources, and geography-related sources. The paper is followed by two appendices. The first provides a brief introduction to the Internet and to Internet access; the second contains a quick-reference list of Internet sites. Readers who are unfamiliar with the Internet should consider reading Appendix I before proceeding. Because one paper cannot reference every demographic resource on the Internet, this paper should be seen primarily as an attempt to impart enough knowledge for readers to seek out further information on their own, according to their particular research interests. Previous compilations of Internet resources have been made for demography by Malsawma (1996) and McCracken (1996). While these prior works have focused exclusively on World Wide Web resources, this paper both indexes resources found on the World Wide Web and lists selected non-WWW resources.

Extractions: Conservation for the Sustainable Development of Forests Worldwide: A Compendium of Concepts and Terms Compiled by Paul L. Aird The conservation of global forests has emerged as a priority item on the international political, policy, science, environment and trade agendas. During and after the United Nations Conference on Environment and Sustainable Development held at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, June 1992, the global forests issue has emerged prominently in many fora, international deliberations and negotiations. Common understanding and interpretation of forest and forestry-related terms is a crucial element in maintaining constructive and effective international dialogue on global forests and forestry. The keywords listed in this compendium are used frequently in scientific-technical-popular writing and conversation concerning the conservation for sustainable development of forests worldwide. These terms and concepts, with definitions and explanations, are presented to help generate both a national and a global consensus and understanding of their meaning. Words often have different shades of meaning, which may lead to incorrect usage. It is intended that this list of specialized terms will encourage the development, use and understanding of standardized terminology and, at the same time, discourage the use of ambiguous words.

Extractions: Sacrifice was common in the ancient world and it is regularly mentioned in the book of Genesis in connection with key individuals and significant moments in the outworking of God's purposes for his world (e.g. 3:3-5; 8:20-22; 12:7-8; 22:1-19). Such incidents are often spontaneous expressions of devotion and gratitude to God. However, it is in Exodus that sacrifice is first established as an essential part of God's plan for Israel as a nation. From that point in the biblical narrative, various rituals are prescribed as God's gift to his people, to express and maintain the relationship he established with them by grace.( When the Passover is first described in Scripture, the meaning of the Hebrew word pesah is explained in terms of the Lord's 'passing over' the houses of the Israelites when he brought judgement against the Egyptians (Ex. 12:11-13, 23-7). Two separate but related feasts, the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, were to be celebrated one after the other as 'a perpetual ordinance', to remember the mighty deliverance of Israel from bondage in Egypt (Ex. 12:14-20; 13:3-10). Originally a purely domestic occasion, the Passover involved the sprinkling of the two sideposts and lintel of the door with the blood of the sacrificed lamb. When the sacrificial aspect of the festival was transferred to the central sanctuary, this blood sprinkling was apparently applied to the altar (cf. 2 Chron. 35:11).(

W3C XML Web site The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is descriptively identified in the XML 1.0 W3C Recommendation as "an extremely simple dialect [or 'subset'] of SGML" the goal of which "is to enable generic SGML to be served, received, and processed on the Web in the way that is now possible with HTML," for which reason "XML has been designed for ease of implementation, and for interoperability with both SGML and HTML." Note that the "HTML" referenced in the preceding sentence ( bis ) means HTML 4.0 and 3.2 which were in common use as of 10-February-1998, when the XML 1.0 specification was published as a W3C Recommendation. The next version of 'HTML' is expected to be reformulated as an XML application, so that it will be based upon XML rather than upon SGML. As of December 1998
Co-Gen- Visual Culture & Nature predominant place relationship which emphasizes spatial mobility and the differencesof the wider world and to Though uneven in terms of its diffusion, some http://www.publicnature.com/co-gen/3.html
Extractions: A key question is whether rootedness in place promotes a more efficient use of energy, space, and environment than today's predominant place relationship which emphasizes spatial mobility and the frequent destruction of unique places... A behavioral focus... asks a complementary question: what are the existential advantages and disadvantages of place-bound lifeworlds? Do they, for example, facilitate in better measure than a physically dispersed lifeworld such qualities as at-homeness, sense of place, care and concern for environment, community participation? Back in 1994, we published a monograph where we advanced the idea that there are a number of "cultural and political prerequisites" of urban sustainability in addition to the more material and technical requirements. That is, if one is attempting to plan for sustainability in an urban context, one must consider not only how to reduce impervious surfaces and promote the closed loop recycling of energy and materials, one must also consider the impact of different ways of organizing the built environment on people's sense of connectedness to nature and natural processes, their sense of community, and their sense of empowerment and ability to influence change. To these three, we have since added sense of place, and knowledge of the civic story - the latter being an understanding of how past activism and decision-making has either improved the quality of life for community residents or made it worse, and how our actions will similarly affect future generations. Collectively, we call these prerequisites the "five senses".

DATA ABOUT INDUSTRIAL POLLUTION AND RELATED TOPICS The Air Management Information System (AMIS) is a program developed by the World Health Organization under the umbrella of the Healthy Cities Programme. The objective of AMIS is to transfer information on air quality management (air quality management instruments used in cities, indoor and ambient air pollutant concentrations, noise levels, health effects, control actions, air quality standards, emission standards, emission inventories, dispersion modeling tools) between countries and cities. In this context AMIS acts as a global air quality information exchange system. AMIS program activity areas include database coordination of air quality information in world mega-cities, act as an information broker, and provide training courses on monitoring and management.

Private property by definition, includes "ALL" local church properties, individual private homes, lands and farms, private business and "ALL" other private property. Confiscation of "ALL" private property is absolutely necessary in order for the UN to "redistribute the worlds wealth" which is a primary objective of the United Nations.

Extractions: DEFINITIONS Aerial Imagery This aerial imagery was acquired with a digital (no film), color infrared, airborne camera. It records data in the blue, green, red, and near-infrared wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. It was flown at a low enough altitude to obtain pixel resolutions of 1m x 1m. The camera and associated hardware were assembled in a light aircraft with a port in the floor. The camera lens was aimed downwards through the port, perpendicular to bottom of the plane. The imagery was later downloaded to produce digital image files. These were then georefe re nced and mosaicked, creating spatially oriented image layers of the area of interest. Albedo is the term used to describe the portion of light radiation incident on the earths surface which is reflected, not transmitted or absorbed by materials on the earths surface. Classification A classification groups pixels into discrete classes based on their multi-dimensional numerical values. Each input raster serves as an axis, and similar groups of pixels can form clusters. This figure shows an ideal clustering scheme of a classification with three input bands. In reality, clusters are usually not as discrete, and must be divided using statistical methods. Most image processing software packages offer numerous classification algorithms which divide data uniquely, and can have differing results.

Extractions: Robert C. Weih, Suzanne Wiley, and James B. Baker Changing attitudes toward national forests have increased demands to manage forests in a socially acceptable and ecologically sustainable manner. As an alternative to clearcutting on national forests in western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma, research was initiated to investigate the effects and trade-offs of partial cutting methods in pine-hardwood stands. An interdisciplinary group of Forest Service and University scientists organized under the Southern Forest Experiment Station developed a replicated stand level study and has begun to monitor activities in the following areas: silviculture, wildlife, biodiversity, visual quality, recreation, water quality, soils, cultural resources, insects, diseases, harvesting and management economics. Information is being collected by more than fifty researchers over a five year period. In order to evaluate the effects of different management strategies and their interactions with forest resources, the data must be brought into a common format and made available to all researchers. A data support system was developed which incorporates Geographic Information System (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and computer network technologies. This allows researchers to integrate both spatial and tabular data from more than two thousand plots. Initiation of this data support system involved the development of a conceptual design which allows all phases of the research to be integrated into a spatial model.
