Last Sunday’s program with Dr. Jennifer Shaw from the OSU Department of Integrative Biology, was about how we might learn something about our own body chemistry by studying some amazing fish from Mexico. Do Background Research: Rather than starting from scratch in putting together a plan for answering your question, you want to be a savvy scientist using library and Internet research to help you find the best way to do things and insure that you don’t repeat mistakes from the past.

Anecdotally, it seems there’s been a bit of movement in the last few years—sample sizes may at last be inching up. (Several other vital fixes have also begun to spread, including study pre-registration and data sharing) But the change in practice—if in fact there’s been a change in practice—only came after researchers spent more than 50 years mindlessly repeating the same mistakes.

Of course no one can fully predict the future there are regarding what future technology will hold in store hints. The Duijvestijn’s greenhouse produces 15 varieties of tomatoes, and they’re resource independent on every front – the farm produces nearly all of its own energy and fertilizer, as well as some of the packaging materials for the produce’s distribution and sale.

Recently, Tesla has had a few high-profile accidents centered on its semi-autonomous drive technology—extremely isolated incidents, and not necessarily fully investigated yet—and Mercedes is taking heat for confusing aspects of its own semi-autonomous drive system in its new E-Class sedan (shown above).future technology

It’s not impossible that a 4,000-mph magnetically levitated train could allow us to have lunch in Manhattan and still get to London in time for the theatre, despite the 5-hour time difference.Norway has studied neutrally buoyant tunnels (concluding that they’re feasible, though expensive), and Shanghai is running …
