In a similar manner, Stanislav Miertus analyzed the potential for substitution between fossil fuel and biofuels, factoring the potential environmental damage through climate change which a fossil-fuel based approach would have in comparison with a biofuels strategy.
Being a world academy composed of members drawn from the arts, social and physical sciences, humanities, business, public administration and civil society poses fundamental questions. How can WAAS distinguish itself from other national and regional academies? Is there really a common meeting point between art and science? Is there a unique contribution that WAAS can make to the world’s knowledge?
Last week I began discussing moving herbicides en-masse in stable air or temperature inversions (What causes large-acreage dicamba damage?). Because the herbicide concentrations in stable air are extremely low, you only see the effects with certain herbicides on extremely sensitive plants.

CRASH AND FLASH Rumors suggest that LIGO may have detected gravitational waves from a new source: colliding neutron stars (illustrated). Such cataclysms are expected to generate a high-energy flash of light, called a gamma-ray burst (yellow jets). Several telescopes made observations seemingly in search of light from such events.

Els van der Heijden, who has cystic fibrosis, was finding it ever harder to breathe as her lungs filled with thick, sticky mucus. Despite taking more than a dozen pills and inhalers a day, the 58-year-old had to stop working[ ]
Mirjana Radovic-Markovic focused her presentation on a global problem of aging workforce, particularly increasing share of those over 55 years old from Europe through North America to Asia, particularly Japan and China. Unfortunately, she discovered that those over 55 are often discriminated on that market, in governmental policies and by the existing stereotypes. It leads to human suffering and significant economic losses of unemployed experienced workforce. In order to avoid those negative consequences of age discrimination and establish equal opportunity rights for those over 55 she recommended that the existing economic theory of employment be revised and that her model of employment for aging people be followed, which will lead to full employment.
