Historians have noted that male bureaucrats and natural resource experts tended to dominate early twentieth-century national and hemispheric conservationist movements in Latin America, but a constellation of female activists, notable among them Gabriela Mistral, strengthened conservationism in the cultural sphere. Malin √•kerman xxx on her leadership in…. Frombork Castle and Nicolas Copernicus. Nicolas Receives Harry H.

Hess Medal. The medal is given for outstanding achievements in research in the constitution and evolution of Earth and other planets. Adolphe Nicolas is a pioneer in Earth sciences. He has almost created a new field that we can name: the textural geodynamics.

Wind resource assessment: San Nicolas Island, California. It is approximately 9 miles long and 3. Winds on San Nicolas are prevailingly northwestmore » and are strong most of malin √•kerman xxx year. The average wind speed is 7. The windiest months, March through July, have wind speeds averaging 8. The least windy months, August through February, have wind speeds averaging 6. Despite their differences in place and time, the woman-centered Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral and the Chicana lesbian feminist writer Gloria Anzaldua both looked to a transnational intellectual American history that frequently connected discourses of esotericism, indigenismo, and mestizaje.

Nicolas Houel famous apothecary founder of the House of the Christian Charity, near Paris, in the 16th Century, welcomed poor children for six years. The author has found two reception contracts and a settlement act to the Foundation ed by Houel in San Nicolas Island surface radiation-meteorology data. The data are available in two formats: hard copy graphs, and processed data on floppy disk.

Nicola Cusano e il foro astronomico al castello di Andraz. Cardinal Nicolas from Cues was friend of Paolo Toscanelli and one of the first supporters of heliocentrism. Malin åkerman xxx carved a tube in the south western wall of a room of the castle of Andraz. It was possibly used to calculate the date of the winter solstice, in order to evaluate the corrections needed to the Julian calendar then in use.

The astronomical use of this tube is described. The accuracy achievable in the measurement of the solstice is surprising. It is possible that the tubes made by Gerbert of Aurillac were used with similar awareness. Describes a structured-experiences workshop in which members of the Upper Nicola Band Okanagan defined Indian control of Indian education for their own community, and formulated their educational philosophy, goals, and action plans.

Provides background on Canadian federal educational policies and the history of education for the Upper Nicola. This paper explores the relationship between three illustrated alchemical treatises, all of which are associated with Jewish adepts: the famous Le Livre des figures hieroglyphiques attributed to Nicolas Flamel, and two treatises published in in Erfurt-the Uraltes Chymisches Werckh and the Donum Dei. I argue that these authors are fictitious, and that both works were in fact written in the early eighteenth century by their supposed editor, the probably pseudonymous Julius Gervasius.

Gervasius connects the Werckh with the legend of Nicolas Flamel by suggesting that it is based on the original, Jewish manuscript which malin åkerman xxx Flamel to find the Stone of the Sages. Gervasius used various strategies to confer a sense of Jewish "authenticity" on these works, borrowing from contemporary non-Jewish perceptions of Jewish ritual, Hebrew language, and Christian Cabala.

The Werckh also borrows and adapts a sequence of allegorical illustrations from those in pseudo-Flamel's Livre, and I compare the two sets of figures and, where possible, interpret them. I conclude that the later works in fact teach us far more about the state of alchemy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries than they do about either medieval alchemy or Judaism.

An outstanding researcher of the solar eclipses- Nicolas Donitch. Nicolae DonitchChisinau, Nice, France? His observatory was placed in Dubossary-Vechi where he worked with some intervals between and Other solar eclipses observed by N.

Subsequent recovery of the population has been well documented Table 1. Census data collected since indicate that the colony has been growing rapidly in s after breeding began again in the late s. Of particular interest was an examination of a distinct diurnal variation in the cloud properties, despite an apparent absence of diurnal forcing from the surface.

Direct or indirect radiative modulation of such clouds, as proposed by Fravalo at el. Preliminary observational evidence for diurnal change in the marine stratocumulus adjacent to San Nicolas Island is presented. A comparison is then made between the observed behavior and predictions from theoretical models of the interactive effect of radiation on boundary layer clouds. Stability and change in kelp forest habitats at San Nicolas Island. Kelp forest communities are highly variable over space and time. Despite this complexity it has been suggested that kelp forest communities can be classified into one of malin åkerman xxx states: kelp dominated or sea urchin dominated.

Our research group has maintained a subtidal community monitoring program for 38 years at San Nicolas Island consisting of twice-annual scuba-based surveys at 6 sites distributed within 4 regions around the island. These 3 perturbations differ in spatial and temporal specificity; physical disturbances and disease outbreaks occur periodically and could affect all 4 regions, while sea otter predation has been concentrated primarily at the West End sites over the last 15 years.

We use nonmetric multidimensional scaling NMDS to examine spatial and temporal patterns of community similarity at the 4 regions. In particular, we evaluate support for the existence of stable states, which are represented on NMDS plots as distinct spatial clusters. Community dynamics at each site approximated a biased random walk in NMDS space, with one or more basins of attraction and occasional jumps between basins.

We found evidence for alternative stable states at some sites, and we show that transitions from one. From Ancient times, medicinal broths have been an integral part of the diet fed to patients and convalescents. At the end of 17th century, medical and pharmaceutical knowledge and practices were to enter a period of major upheavals. Although also hitherto discredited, chemical drugs became all the rage, work in chemistry boomed and broths benefited. Do the first editions of the works of Nicolas Lemery reflect the knowledge of his time?

Do last editions — revised, corrected, annotated and completed — really reflect transformations in scientific disciplines, technological developments, and scientific advances, particularly in chemistry? A multi-decade time series of kelp forest community structure at San Nicolas Island, California. Lafferty, Kevin D. Tim; Bodkin, James L. San Nicolas Island is surrounded by broad areas of shallow subtidal habitat, characterized by dynamic kelp forest communities that undergo dramatic and abrupt shifts in community composition. Although these reefs are fished, the physical isolation of the island means that they receive less impact from human activities than most reefs in Southern California, making San Nicolas an ideal place to evaluate alternative theories about the dynamics of these communities.

Here we present monitoring data from seven sampling stations surrounding the island, including data on fish, invertebrate, and algal abundance. These data are unusual among subtidal monitoring data sets in that they combine relatively frequent sampling twice per year with an exceptionally long time series since Other outstanding qualities of the data set are the high taxonomic resolution captured and the monitoring of permanent quadrats and swaths where the history of the community structure at specific locations has been recorded through time.

Finally, the data span a period that includes two of the strongest ENSO events on record, a major shift in the Pacific decadal oscillation, and the reintroduction of sea otters to the island in after at least years of absence. These events provide opportunities to evaluate the effects of bottom-up forcing, top-down control, and physical disturbance on shallow rocky reef communities. This paper presents an analysis of scientific creation of the brilliant Romanian scientist Nicolae Donici, as well as of his life, from the point of view of unity and struggle of opposites in his life and creation.

It is shown that the scientific activities of the scientist are at the interface between astronomy and astrophysics, between the fundamental research and engineering, the great fundamental realizations being impossible without putting into operation of the observatory at the motherland of the scientist in Dubasari Vechi, Bassarabia.

The events in the life of the scientist ranged between misfortunes and challenges from the one hand, and lucky circumstances and achievements on the other hand. The confrontations between wealth and poverty, between blows of fate and willingness to confront challenges in the life of the great scientist are also of the dialectic.

Dynamics and distribution of black abalone populations at San Nicolas Island. Dense populations of black abalones Haliotis cracherodii Leach were monitored in permanent intertidal plots at nine sites on San Nicolas Island from through Densities were essentially constant at all four sites along the north shore of the island throughout the study period. Densities at five sites along the south shore were more variable, possibly reflecting asynchronous variation in recruitment, mortality resulting from wave disturbance, and removal by people.

Temporal variation of abalone densities apparently was not influenced by sea otters or abalone withering syndrome during this study. Abalones were strongly aggregated in space. Highest densities occurred in areas of irregular substrata, apparently as a result of preference for crevices and vertical faces. The locations of dense patches were persistent in time. The kelp forest fishes of San Nicolas Island, California were studied from to examine the causes of among-site and among-year variation in the fish assemblages.

Fish counts and seven physical and biological variables were recorded at six sites around the island every spring and fall. Over the study period, a total of 45 fish species from 18 families were recorded, though members of nive families dominated at all sites. Among-site variation was considereable with two sites on the south side of the island having two to four times as many non-schooling fishes as the other four sites.

Three variables, based on stepwise multiple regression techniques, were important predictors of site-specific fish abundance: 1 vertical relief; 2 sand cover and 3 understory algal cover. The total of fishes varied interannually by a factor of three. Due to recruitment occuring each spring, there was a strong seasonal component to the variation in fish abundance.

The extent of seasonal and interannual variaton of fish abundance malin åkerman xxx an indication of the variable nature of recruitment to this area. Over the 6 yr period, there were three distinct groupings of fish assemblages correspondong to pre- Fall - Fallduring spring Spring - Spring and post El Nino Fall - Fall sampling dates. During El Nino sampling period, there was considerable recruitment of southern affinity fish species, increasing both the abundance and diversity of the fish assemblages. Malin åkerman xxx oceanographic processes, coupled with site-specific features of the reef habitat, produce a moderately diverse, though relatively abundant fish fauna at San Nicolas Island.
