Tracking DoD authorization or appropriation bills can often be confusing and time-consuming; this has been particularly true in recent years, when continuing resolutions (CRs) containing the DoD and other appropriation bills have been passed in lieu of the 12 regular appropriations bills for the entire U.S. government. This report lists the DoD authorization bills and appropriations bills for FY 1970 -- FY 2010. This report includes all the pertinent info. on the passage of these bills through the legislative process: bill numbers, report numbers, dates reported and passed, recorded vote numbe

The history of quantum theory is a maze of conceptual problems. In this lucid and learned book, Olivier Darrigol tracks the role of formal analogies between classical and quantum theory, from Planck's first introduction of the quantum of action to Dirac's formulation of quantum mechanics. In so doing, Darrigol illuminates not only the history of quantum theory but also the role of analogies in scientific thinking and theory change. The most remarkable result of such analogical argument in quantum theory was Bohr's correspondence principle which, in Darrigol's words, "performed the acrobatic ta

Today, humanity faces a serious challenge. Much of the Earthżs biodiversity -- the richness of its many species of flora and fauna -- is at risk. The areas that are home to the greatest numbers of at-risk species are also home to large numbers of rural people, many of them desperately poor. Local agriculture must expand to meet rapidly growing world demand. Yet agriculture, as currently practiced, is a chief cause of the destruction of valuable habitats, pushing species towards extinction. If agricultural policies are not changed, large numbers of endangered species of all types will be lost.

A report on the test and evaluation process conducted by DoD of a specific synthetic lubricant called MILITEC-1 that is produced by Militec, Inc., and the assignment and cancellation of national stock numbers 2 (NSN) associated with that product. Militec, Inc., has challenged DoD decisions not to include MILITEC-1 in the fed. supply system. This report examined: (1) the extent to which the military services have tested and evaluated MILITEC-1 as a small arms lubricant, as a metal conditioner, as a general purpose lubricant, and as a lubricant additive, and with what results; and (2) the extent

A Challenge of Numbers describes the circumstances and issues centered on people in the mathematical sciences, principally students and teachers at U.S. colleges and universities. A healthy flow of mathematical talent is crucial not only to the future of U.S. mathematics but also as a keystone supporting a technological workforce. Trends in the mathematical sciences' most valuable resource--its people--are presented narratively, graphically, and numerically as an information base for policymakers and for those interested in the people in this not very visible, but critical profession.

Forty-seven percent of the American people, according to a 1991 Gallup poll, believe that God made man--as man is now--in a single act of creation, and within the last ten thousand years. Ronald L. Numbers chronicles the astonishing resurgence of this belief since the 1960s, as well as the creationist movement's tangled roots in the theologies of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Adventists, and other religious groups.Even more remarkable than Numbers's story of today's widespread rejection of the theory of evolution is the dramatic shift from acc
