Production Notes Paper recycling is reprocessing waste paper fibers back into a usable paper product. Soy ink is a helpful component in paper recycling. It helps in this process because the soy ink can be removed more easily than regular ink can be taken out of paper during the de-inking process of recycling. This allows the recycled paper to have less damage to its paper fibers and have a brighter appearance. The waste that is left from the soy ink during the de-inking process is not hazardous and it can be treated easily through the development on modern processes.

Climate change flyer05-05_fin.qxp - National Academies

Joint science academies’ statement: Global response to climate change 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 occurring1. 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)2. This warming has already led to changes in the Earth's climate. The existence of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is vital to life on Earth – in their absence average temperatures would be about 30 centigrade degrees lower than they are today. But human activities are now causing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases – including carbon dioxide, methane, tropospheric ozone, and nitrous oxide – to rise well above pre-industrial levels. Carbon dioxide levels have increased from 280 ppm in 1750 to over 375 ppm today – higher than any previous levels that can be reliably measured (i.e. in the last 420,000 years). Increasing greenhouse gases are causing temperatures to rise; the Earth’s surface warmed by approximately 0.6 centigrade degrees over the twentieth century. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projected that the average global surface temperatures will continue to increase to between 1.4 centigrade degrees and 5.8 centigrade degrees above 1990 levels, by 2100.

The Facts and Science of Climate Change - U.S. Senate ...

Committee on Environment and Public Works The Facts and Science of Climate Change by U.S. Senator James M. Inhofe Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works The climate is constantly changing, and has done so throughout history. The challenge is to understand the natural changes in the climate and whether humans are contributing significantly to those changes. The larger challenge is to separate the politics from the discussion of the science, in order to better understand the state of knowledge of climate change science. Today, even saying there is scientific disagreement over global warming is itself controversial. But anyone who pays even cursory attention to the issue understands that scientists vigorously disagree over whether human activities are responsible for global warming, or whether those activities will precipitate apocalyptic natural disasters. It is extremely important for the future of this country that the facts and the science get a fair hearing. Without proper knowledge and understanding, alarmists will scare the country into enacting their ultimate goal: making energy suppression, in the form of harmful mandatory restrictions on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse emissions, the official policy of the United States. Such a policy would induce serious economic harm, especially for low income and minority populations. Energy suppression, as official government and nonpartisan private analyses have amply confirmed, means higher prices for food, medical care, and electricity, as well as massive job losses and drastic reductions in gross domestic...

What is Image Classification?

Remote sensing is the science and the art of obtaining information about an object, area, or phenomenon through the analysis of data acquired by a device that is not contact with the object, area or phenomenon under investigation.(Lillesand and Kiefer, 1994). The images taken are in the form of pixel and the process of changing it into digital images that make sense is known as image classification. It is based on technique that provides information through images. For eg. Land cover further categorized into- forest,water,agriculture etc.

The 411 on Healthy Eating - National Diabetes Education Program

The 411 on Healthy Eating You’ve heard it countless times before – eat healthy. Want to know what all the hype is about? Science has proven that if you lose a small amount of weight by eating healthier and being physically active 30 minutes a day 5 days per week, you can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. What exactly does “eat healthy” mean? Eating the same old bland tasting food day after day? Hardly. In the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) study, participants achieved success by eating less fat and fewer calories and getting regular exercise. The National Diabetes Education Program, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has developed educational materials for many audiences and in several languages as part of the Small Steps. Big Rewards Prevent type 2 Diabetes campaign. Although there are lots of diet choices and weight-loss plans available, taking small steps to reduce fat and caloric intake and becoming more physically active is most likely to lead to successful weight loss—and helps to keep the weight off as well. Here are some tips for eating healthier and getting you on the road to diabetes prevention:...
