In the 17th and 18th centuries, the project of modernity, as had been promoted by Bacon and Descartes, led to rapid scientific advance and the successful development of a new type of natural science, mathematical, methodically experimental, and deliberately innovative. Newton and Leibniz succeeded in developing a new physics, now referred to as classical mechanics , which could be confirmed by experiment and explained using mathematics. Leibniz also incorporated terms from Aristotelian physics , but now being used in a new non-teleological way, for example, " energy " and " potential " (modern versions of Aristotelian " energeia and potentia "). In the style of Bacon, he assumed that different types of things all work according to the same general laws of nature, with no special formal or final causes for each type of thing. It is during this period that the word "science" gradually became more commonly used to refer to a type of pursuit of a type of knowledge, especially knowledge of nature — coming close in meaning to the old term " natural philosophy ."
"Climate change is real. There will always be uncertainty in understanding a system as complex as the world’s climate. However there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring. The evidence comes from direct measurements of rising surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures and from phenomena such as increases in average global sea levels, retreating glaciers, and changes to many physical and biological systems. It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities (IPCC 2001)." (2005, 11 international science academies) 10
Mr. McShane I’am an ex police officer in TX. I can say ex because I was terminated after guy that I thought was my friend claimed that he found marijuana in his residence that I left behind. After receiving a copy of the statement that he submitted during his interview by the departments internal affairs officer I found that he was lying through out the statement. I was then called in by the chief of police, who ordered me to submit to a urine drug screen. Well after about a week it came back that I was positive for marijuana metabolite and (THC), and opiates (hydrocodone). I am currently taking prescribed meds, hydrocodone, meloxicam, ibuprofen and tramadol for pain managent for a injury to my hand. I was also taking a drug called Protonix (Pantroprazole) for a serious case of acid reflux that I had to be hospitialized for. It was also prescribed by my doctor. through research I found out that the Protonix have caused false positives for THC on urine test. I told the chief and he told me to call the lab and give them the name of all my prescriptions. I spoke with a lab tech and gave him the name of al my meds. I mentioned to him about my research on he protonix and he had never heard of the drug and asked me to spell it for him. He then told me that it was positive and did not elaborate much, other than he would talk to the doctor in charge of the lab, and call me back the next day. After getting a call from him he then told me that the doctor told him the there is no way for false positive because the test was done using the GC/MS method. I have about 8 days to decide, and let my union attorney know if I want to go to arbitration, or if I even have a valid case. Please Help!!!
