Social media is a spontaneous order. Or, rather, various social orders cultivated on social media platforms—patterns of interaction, virtual communities, co-creation and user-generated content—constitute their own spontaneous orders. Social media... continue reading
Define a molecular computer as one molecule which transforms, by random chemical reactions mediated by a collection of enzymes, into a predictable other molecule, such that the output molecule can be conceived as the result of a computation... continue reading
Futurists often appear to be divided into two camps: one group put their efforts into forecasting, while the other group insist that the future is ours to plan—decide on a desirable future and then devise policies to get there. But my thesis is... continue reading
The haze monitoring technique by MPPSK satellite signal is the new idea. MPPSK satellite signal delay is received by satellite ground-based receivers whose positions are set. Troposphere delay is used fordistribution calculation . Raw data is... continue reading
It is no secret that the 21st century will pose dramatic challenges to ecosystem stability and biodiversity as a result of human interventions over the last 200 years. What is also very clear is that human societies will be significantly impacted... continue reading
Comparative analysis of international health systems has increased in recent years, serving to inform systemic transformations undertaken (Singapore) or explored (Vermont). Much of this analysis has focused on comparisons of various healthcare... continue reading
Gravitational wave detection aims to measure extremely weak vibration signals that are deeply drowned in noise. Therefore, improving Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is crucial for such detection systems including laser interferometer gravitational... continue reading
The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the hypothalamus is the principal component of the mammalian biological clock, the neural timing system that generates and coordinates a broad spectrum of physiological, endocrine and behavioral circadian... continue reading
It has been suggested that when in a highly focused state, some individuals can better utilise attentional resources allowing them to ignore stimuli which may be distracting. Further, it has been postulated that hypnosis is nessesary in... continue reading
Much modern research is based on complex models for complex systems. Examples are biological macromolecules, climate models, or systems biology. These models are too complex for publishing in journal articles. They currently exist only in the... continue reading
