Notes from the road… Randy C. Hice I'm on a train somewhere in Switzerland, nearing the Italian border. The Alps are screaming past with intricate matrices of dormant vineyards covering the foothills. I'm daydreaming of how many people on this train are listening to something from the group War (City Country City) on an iPod. None likely. Statistically, probably no one else in Switzerland or Italy is listening to Lee Oskar
Acquiring signals for neuroprosthetics Bill Weaver, Ph.D. Now that summer is in full swing, the onslaught of blockbuster sci-fi movies and books has arrived. Much to the chagrin of pedigreed critics, alien technology coupled with special effects is a common formula for popular acclaim. Daring explorers discover a hidden trove of alien artifacts and, recognizing the portent to improved quality-of-life
Weather affects everyone, and the current and upcoming forecasts are always guaranteed conversation-starters. So, it's not surprising that a variety of weather information sources have been available on the Internet almost since its inception.

New world of high performance computing enables more people to solve much more complex problems Johannes Gehrke and Dave Lifka Imagine, for a moment, that you are a computational biologist and want to ask a question like, "Show me all the genes that are similar to nitric oxide synthetase." It turns out this can be a pretty tricky question. If you are interested in proteins, you would have to search the NR database at NCBI instead. Now imagine typing that question into Google.com
A historical perspective on the development of commercial platforms for high performance scientific computing Marco Annaratone Technical teams within a variety of industries were among the first to discover the advantages of high performance computing with Linux clusters. Many engineering simulations are too compute-intensive for PCs and workstations, and require large-scale mainframes or supercomputers for them to be carried out in a reasonable amount of time
Hubble's 15 years of celestial discovery Jennifer Miller, Managing Editor Curiosity is simple human nature. It's a deep-seated compulsion, an instinct if you will, to step out of the ordinary and explore, study and discover our surroundings. Can you imagine a world without the not-so-simple theories and findings of Galileo, Columbus, Einstein or Newton? Neither can I
