Supporting basic science through the crowd funding online platform

During and after world war II, science has been supported by government. Science became huge and money-based activities. Norms such as CUDOS that has been support science began to be diminished since capitalism governs science. Competitions replace cooperations, applicability of science became t...

The Physics of transport processes

The physics of transport processes has been and is currently a very important sector in the description and understanding of the “infinitely small and big”. Nanophysics is demonstrating in recent years the richness of phenomena occurring at the nano-scale. A new formulation of the Drude-Lorent...

Reducing the peer review burden and raising grant success rates by passing a simple law

Pass a law that limits the total dollars that a research organization can request from the federal government to three times the average dollars they received in previous years. This would immediately change the average success rate of grants to one in three; a major improvement from current rat...

The spontaneous order of social media

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 spontaneous orders emerge and evolve in an orderl...

Naturalness of Atheism and Supernaturalness of Religion - A Role for Theological Science

Scientific approaches ("science" narrowly defined as the "sciences of nature") metaphysically exclude divine effects as appropriate--in other words, science itself is structured to exclude divine action (pragmatically). The problem with the "natural" study of religion is that religion cannot be ...

Cancer cell nuclear expulsion: a possible mechanism of survival, and metastasis capability.

A very interesting and novel experiment was carried out by Florina Bojin et al [Wiley](http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jcmm.12271/abstract). Constructing on this published work, I propose a novel survival mechanism of the cancer cell, and a new metastasis mechanism. Giving that cancer...

String notation for capturing the entire experimental processes of chemistry

A string notation which is inspired by [SMILES](http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ci00057a005) notation in chemistry can be devised for capturing entire chemistry experimental and methodological sequences and processes. Laboratory experimental procedures are often described as flowcharts, whic...
