The first ACS Adhesion Symposium was once held in Washington, D.C., September 1971. through the 4 years considering that assembly, a lot curiosity in adhesion has been generated between six divisions of the yank Chemical Society. Then, in 1974, the Macromolecular Secretariat appointed me to paintings heavily with the six consultation chairmen in organizing this Symposium on technology and know-how of Adhesion. keep in mind that, the good fortune of the Symposium which happened among April 7 and 10, 1975 in Philadelphia, Pa., is because of their very good cooperation and the enthusiastic reaction of con­ tributors. As initially deliberate, each one department was once liable for one consultation, and many of the papers, together with a number of past due con­ tributions, are released in those volumes of lawsuits. through the Symposium, we held a dinner party in honor of Professor Herman Mark in occasion of his 80th birthday. His Plenary Lecture and the Symposium deal with by means of Professor Murray Goodman are released in complete initially of the 1st quantity. I thank Professors Mark and Goodman for his or her first-class shows in this memorable occasion.

Science Left Behind: Feel-Good Fallacies and the Rise of the Anti-Scientific Left

To hear such a lot pundits and political writers, evolution, stem cells, and weather swap are the one medical matters worthy pointing out —and the single those people who are anti-science are conservatives. but these at the left have a variety of fallacies in their personal. Aversion to wash power courses, simple organic learn, or even life-saving vaccines come certainly to many progressives.

Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World

Simply as global battle II referred to as an prior iteration to greatness, so the weather hindrance is looking today's emerging adolescence to motion: to create a greater future.

In UNSTOPPABLE, invoice Nye crystallizes and expands the message for which he's most sensible recognized and liked. That message is that with a mixture of optimism and medical interest, all stumbling blocks develop into possibilities, and the probabilities of our global turn into unlimited. With a scientist's thirst for wisdom and an engineer's imaginative and prescient of what will be, invoice Nye sees today's environmental concerns now not as insurmountable, miserable difficulties yet as probabilities for our society to upward thrust to the problem and create a cleanser, fitter, smarter international. we'd like no longer settle for that transportation consumes part our power, and that two-thirds of the power you place into your motor vehicle is straight away thrown away out the tailpipe. we want now not settle for that harmful emissions are the associated fee we needs to pay for a colourful financial system and a comfy lifestyles. certainly, we'd like now not settle for that we are going to depart our youngsters a planet that's soiled, overheated, and depleted of assets. As invoice stocks his imaginative and prescient, he debunks the most continual myths and misunderstandings approximately worldwide warming. if you are performed examining, you'll be enlightened and empowered. likelihood is, you'll be smiling, too, able to sign up for invoice and alter the world.

In Unstoppable: Harnessing technology to alter the realm, the recent York instances bestselling writer of indisputable: Evolution and the technology of production and previous host of "Bill Nye the technology Guy" concerns a brand new problem to today's iteration: to make a purifier, extra effective, and happier global.

Natural Fabrications: Science, Emergence and Consciousness (The Frontiers Collection)

The impressive luck of the medical firm over the past 400 years has resulted in the promise of an all encompassing imaginative and prescient of the flora and fauna. during this dependent photo, every little thing we realize relies upon quite a few basic methods and entities. the just about endless sort and complexity of the area is hence the made from emergence.

Textile fibers, in which a crystalline fibrillae are axially distributed in an amorphous crosslinked matrix are studied in Japan and the USSR.

As a preliminary, we must recognize some basic facts about the problem. First, it is a field of applied science. Second, it is a field where specific disciplines such as polymer science, surface science, mechanics and physical chemistry meet, and where they may or may not overlap. It is safe to 8ay that the solution of the general problem of adhesion will never be found in anyone of the existing disciplines of science or engineering. The first component of the solution is, of course, to mobilize investigators from all the relevant disciplines.

They come from many countries, organizations and societies. They span more than four decades. In 1928, Dr. Mark was awarded the Heinrich Hertz Medal. This year our Geheimrat will receive the prestigious Willard Gibbs Medal of the Chicago Section of the American Chemical Society. Herman Mark remains a wonderfully effective teacher and communicator of scientific information. Throughout the years, all sorts of people have come to him for guidance and advice. I am reminded of my first year at the Polytechnic.
