    The issue of scientists who simultaneously submit the same paper or slightly modified versions to a number of journals gained notoriety with a recent article, “Journals combat scientists' deceit in submitting study reports,” in the New York Times (Dec. 14, 1982, p. C1). The subject may be newsworthy, but is not a new issue. View full abstract»

    Reviews the physics, history, advantages and applications of NMR imaging. The technique yields high-resolution anatomical information using computerised image reconstruction methods and the weak interaction of static and time dependent magnetic fields with the atomic nuclei of the body.

    Very large-scale integrated-circuit (VLSI) technology, thus far the province of scientific and military applications, is scheduled to enter consumer homes this year shortly after at least four manufacturers market their digital television sets. The sets are based on eight chips that contain five VLSI circuits. The chips, designed and produced by the International Telephone & Telegraph Corp... View full abstract»

    Shows how computers permit spectacular visual effects and take the drudgery out of film cartooning. The technique of automated in-betweening which reduces much of the manual labour of cel animation is reviewed. Other topics considered include computer painting, three dimensional animation and picture prospects. View full abstract»

  • Power/energy: Hybrid load shedding is frequency based: Time at a given frequency is also important, bringing stabilization in a matter of seconds even when as much as two thirds of the load must be shed

    When an electric system imports large amounts of power from outside its area, it needs a new approach to load shedding. Even the best conventional frequency-coordinated shedding may not prevent a blackout when external power is lost and more than 50 percent of the load must be shed. However, a hybrid load-shedding scheme that includes at least one time-coordinated step in addition to several frequ... View full abstract»

  • Aerospace: The automated cockpit: The digital revolution catches up with commercial airline cockpits and stirs old questions over how many crew members are needed

    Digital cockpit control panels which include a few electronic display screens are replacing the rows of indicators in commercial airline aircraft. These new aircraft: the Boeing 757 and 767 and the Airbus Industrie A310 are designed to be flown by two rather than three crew members. The author outlines this display and control instrumentation including the flight management system and the engine i... View full abstract»

    A new type of hybrid engineer — part engineer, part social analyst — is emerging in increasing numbers from technical universities in the United States. These engineers are trained in specially designed programs to deal with issues and problems that arise from the interaction between technology and society. Such programs were developed because academia recognized that many modern sociotechnologica... View full abstract»
