Advances in Medical Science - New long-term painkiller: The scientists are working on a new painkiller, which will be very useful in daily life for everyone. It is a painkiller which will work for almost a week. It is discovered by the combination of saxitoxin with liposomes. Saxitoxin blocks sodium ion channels on the nerve cells and can prevent the transmission of action potentials. Liposomes are some particles that dissolve real slowly which helps the distribution of drug slowly so that its effect can last long. The news caught my eye because; if this painkiller comes in the market it will be revolutionary development in medical science....   [tags: Medical Science] 684 words

Conflicts of Law and Science - ... Law believes in absolute answers while science produces what most likely occurred (Cooper, 2012). There are already plenty of conflicts between science which is viewed as a truth-seeking mechanism and law which seeks to be justice-serving. It is believed that as the science becomes more complex and the needs of law more demanding that there will be a greater divide and clash between the two fields (Jasanoff, 2009). There is limited information on the law enforcements attitude towards forensic science matters although the police create a critical link in the forensic evidence chain (Lambert et al, 2007; Murphy 2007)....   [tags: Forensic Science, Law Enforcement]

As we can see in Mary Shelley's " Frankenstein" Victor is completely obsessed with his idea of creating a monster even though at the end he abandons it.

In his paper he started by the following “The problem which troubled me at the time was neither, 'When is a theory true?' nor, 'When is a theory acceptable?' My problem was different I wished to distinguish between science and pseudo-science; knowing very well that science often errs, and that pseudo-science may happen to stumble on the truth” (2) Karl considers the empirical method of observations ensued by test or series of tests to approve a theory, and analysis of the results (empirical method) is not acceptable....   [tags: Informative, Scientific Method] 1684 words

As Thales studied these tables he thought he discerned a pattern or regularity in the occurrence of eclipses, and he ventured to predict a solar eclipse that occurred on May 28th 585BC. Some scholars think that this was just a lucky empirical guess, but if it was the discovery of an astronomical regularity or natural law, then Thales may be credited with distinguishing Greek philosophy and science from the somewhat aimless observations and disjointed information of the Eastern wise men....   [tags: Science Math Stars Papers]
