    Power is available from two different sources: nonrenewable (coal, fuel, natural gas) and renewable (wind, solar, hydro, wave). Nonrenewable sources have limited potential and they are expected to diminish within the next centuries due to high rates of exploitation. This is one of many other reasons why clean and renewable energy resources are currently sought. View full abstract»

    Geoengineering technologies are not necessarily "bad" or "good" in themselves. Indeed, if climate degradation were to accelerate unexpectedly, or if political gridlock were to prevent significant mitigation or adaptation, geoengineering technologies might prove to be necessary, and perhaps the only available insurance against unacceptable climate change. As with other powerful technologies, howeve... View full abstract»

    The article presents an approach to holistically account for the considerations of multiple actors (i.e., decision makers and stakeholders) in the development of biojet fuels. The approach is based on a system perspective couched within a life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology. The integrated approach is called a multiactor life cycle assessment (MA LCA).The article starts with a discussion about... View full abstract»

    The ability to balance is a prerequisite to sitting, standing, and walking and requires complicated physiological coordination. The disruption of any components of the equilibrioceptive, proprioceptive, or visual systems can significantly handicap balance, such as in some cases of cerebral palsy, spina bifida, arthrogryposis, cystic fibrosis, and many other diseases and injuries. Unfortunately, in... View full abstract»

    Think back to your high school science class. Can you remember what the average class was like? If your school was like most U.S. high schools, science class probably consisted of memorizing terms, watching dated videos of Bill Nye the Science Guy, and participating in group labs. Some of these labs may have been mildly interesting, but many others may have felt repetitive and recycled-follow the ... View full abstract»
