Current Environmental Science Events

According to a recent article published by Science Daily, “Using census data, satellite images, aerial photographs, and computer simulations, a NASA scientist estimated that turf grass is the single-largest irrigated crop in the United States” which begs the question what is the environmental cost? Hempel, C.G., 1985, Thoughts in the Limitations of Discovery by Computer”, in K. Schaffner (ed.), Logic of Discovery and Diagnosis in Medicine, Berkeley: University of California Press, 115-22. All the news coming out of NASA is positive PR for Earth Sciences, but I want to hear great things about Space because this is taxpayers money.

The above sections show that the study of scientific discovery has become an integral part of the wider endeavor of exploring creative thinking and creativity more generally. News-Medical Life Sciences spoke to Zaber Technologies at Neuroscience 2019 to find out how they are lowering the barriers of automated microscopy.

To examine this filtering effect, we applied the algorithms to all publications in the WoS database of types ‘letter’ and ‘article’ that were published between 1990 and 1994 and received at least one citation during the first 24 months after publication.

Philosophical issues related to scientific discovery arise about the nature of human creativity, specifically about whether the eureka moment” can be analyzed and about whether there are rules (algorithms, guidelines, or heuristics) according to which such a novel insight can be brought about.

In another study published June 2018 in the B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy, labor economist Daniel Kuehn and his team found that when annual payments increased in size, married women reduced their working hours more than single women and men Kuehn suspects married women are using the money to spend more time with their children.
