  1. Here a bunch of link that seem useful, although they deal with different sub-fields of science: http://home.comcast.net/~jerrypapers/whysci.html http://www.jerf.org/iri/2005/03/04.html http://www.intuitor.com/physics/ http://www.santarosa.edu/lifesciences/whybio.htm http://www.cofc.edu/~chem/hbook/whystudy.html http://www.lhup.edu/~dsimanek/chapman.htm Also, what province do you live? In Canada and the US, IIRC, the education system is a provincial/state matter. In Quebec, you enter high school at grade 7 (you leave at 11), where you take Ecology. Afterwards, a student takes Physical Science 216 and Biology in Grade 8 and 9, respectively. You go into the either Physical Science 416 or 430, depending your math course. There are no required science course afterwards, and Physics and Chemistry are open only to those who have taken P.S. 430. In order to enter the science CEGEP (junior college - required for university admission) programs, you must have the Physics and Chemistry.

    I saw the premere on Global. It seems like good show, but it on CH now, I don't get well. Love CSI, thought.
  3. You can increase the sound of speed in air by increasing the temprature (but only sightly). I can't recall the equation, though, and it only be important with large temprature differences.
  4. Yes, only the mods are payed in power trips instead of money.

    Star Trek Techies

    Ya, a bunch of crazy trekkies are trying raise funds to keep it on air. I cannot believe they have that rasied much money, for a show that, by some accounts, was a horrible piece of trash. Crazy trekkies...
  6. Because some of the energy transmited is loss to fiction and other energy converisions. I don't quite follow. The medium moves because of a disturbance to it. The energy loss is to the thing that starts the medium in motion, IIRC. Because there is a linear restoring force (F=-kx) with tries to return the particles to there orginal loction.
  7. "Never attibute to malice what can attibuted to stupidity" (I can prove this...) "A proof is a proof. What kind of a proof? It's a proof. A proof is a proof. And when you have a good proof, it's because it's proven." " Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - the ones we don't know we don't know "
  8. No. We had better thing to do.
  9. I using a Sympatico DSL Basic line, which faster than dial-up but slower than other high-speed conections. I have no quams about my service.
  10. Colour is the only civilized maner of spelling that word. And anything else is barbaric. And the best way to argue is not with Bushisms; it is with Rummy-isms. Everyone know that, but they KNOW that. It is a unknown known. See what I mean
  11. Hey! My parents purchased a new computer recently. It came with a full version of Microsoft Works 7 and a 60 day trial of Microsoft Office Student and Home Edition. I have been previously using the Microsoft Works Suite 2001. My main use for computer, school-wise, is writing essays on the Word Processor, and I may use spreadsheets (my Physics class will use them) and PowerPoint for class presentations. As well, my mother uses email and my bother use word processor and occasionally the spreadsheet. Should I use Works, use Office for now and get to full edition later or use the (free) OpenOffice.org suite I heard about?
  12. I am good at English and I know a little French, although I wish I knew more, and could speak better.
