    The sea around us is far from silent; it is noisier than the average environment on land. This is the conclusion of a study of the sounds of the sea available from the U.S. Department of Commerce. Scientists at the American Museum of Natural History who made the study for the Navy say the average level of sea noise is about 10 to 15 dB above 1 microbar. This noise level is roughly comparable to a ... View full abstract»

    A combination water — power plant is now being completed in the U.S. Virgin Islands that will produce one million gallons of fresh water daily and 7500 kW of electric power. The plant, a Westinghouse Electric Corporation installation, will provide water to the town of Charlotte Amalie and electricity for the 20 000 residents of St. Thomas, plus the large tourist influx.

    Biomedical engineering is among the most recent additions to the technological professions. Since its greatest triumphs and major contributions to humanity are still in the future, it is literally as new as tomorrow. It is a “cross-disciplinary” branch of engineering. And it results in large measure from the application of the skills and capabilities of modern electronics to the fields of biology,... View full abstract»

    The transmission of pictures by pulse code modulation (PCM) has been investigated by various researchers<sup>1, 2</sup> for more than a decade. Recently, interest has reached a new high, partly because of the possible military and space applications. The purpose of the present article is to describe briefly some of the research work being carried on in Pcm picture transmission at the C... View full abstract»

    In his book Growing Up Absurd, the social critic Paul Goodman postulates this model of the youth of today: they see themselves growing up in an apparently closed room, that of the highly organized establishment, in which there is a large rat race as the dominant center of attention, and in which there is little leeway for them to live and work satisfactorily as individuals. In a more specialized s... View full abstract»

    It is a most satisfying experience to be able to proceed from simple, intuitive, basic premises in a straight line to a sophisticated understanding of a very fundamental concept. Historically, most philosophical and scientific concepts in their development do not progress in this logical pattern. Most often progress is made or setbacks occur in a rather disjointed manner as the pressures and talen... View full abstract»
