THE PRESENT STATUS OF THE QUANTUM THEORY OF LIGHT In August of 1995, a group of over 70 physicists met at York University for a three-day symposium in honour of Professor Jean-Pierre Vigier. The attendance included theoretical and experimental physicists, mathematicians, astronomers and colleagues concerned with issues in the philosophy of science. The symposium was entitled "The Present Status of the Quantum Theory of Light" in accordance with Professor Vigier's wishes but in fact encompassed many of the areas to which Professor Vigier has contributed over his long and distinguished career. These include stochastic interpretations of quantum mechanics, particle physics, and electromagnetic theory. The papers presented at the symposium have been arranged in this proceedings in the following approximate order: ideas about the nature of light and photons, electrodynamiCS, the formulation and interpretation of quantum mechanics, and aspects of relativity theory. Some of the papers presented deal with alternate interpretations of quantum phenomena in the tradition of Vigier, Bohm et al. These interpretations reject the account given in purely probabilistic terms and which deems individual quantum events to be acausal and not amenable to any analysis in space-time terms. As is well known, Einstein and others also rejected the purely statistical account of quantum mechanics. As stressed by Professor Vigier at the symposium, the current experimental situation now allows for the first time for individual quantum events to be studied, e. g.
Yogi Berra once said, "You can observe a lot just by watching." Michael Cramer has been a keen observer of everyday life encountered as he was walking or driving around town, while working, or watching children at play. He describes life as it is, surrounded by the lives of thousands of others, including interactions as well as observations and sharing the reality to which he is a witness. Poetry is the art of taking pictures with words, and these poems are the pictures Cramer has taken while watching life unfold around him. From the jarring images presented in "Holy City" to the touching memories and warm, loving thoughts of a father in "My Child," Cramer captures the images and emotions that inhabit our lives in "Vignettes in Paled Light. My Child How I long to caress your cheek gaze deep into your eyes, into your heart see the memories there of time past the good and the bad, both joyous and sad the sporting events, musical presentations, recitals and reviews. Family memories, time shared wrestling with your siblings, tickling and being tickled the blessing of your giggles, your laughter the heart rending experience of your first tears Every time you cried ..."
The production of doubled haploids has become a necessary tool in advanced plant breeding institutes and commercial companies for breeding many crop species. However, the development of new, more efficient and cheaper large scale production protocols has meant that doubled haploids are also recently being applied in less advanced breeding programmes. This Manual was prepared to stimulate the wider use of this technology for speeding and opening up new breeding possibilities for many crops including some woody tree species. Since the construction of genetic maps using molecular markers requires the development of segregating doubled haploid populations in numerous crop species, we hope that this Manual will also help molecular biologists in establishing such mapping populations. For many years, both the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have supported and coordinated research that focuses on development of more efficient doubled haploid production methods and their applications in breeding of new varieties and basic research through their Plant Breeding and Genetics Section of the Joint F AO/IAEA Division of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture. The first F AO/IAEA scientific network (Coordinated Research Programme - CRP) dealing with doubled haploids was initiated by the Plant Breeding and Genetics Section in 1986.
"Alexi!" Nani gasped. "He's here... he's close... we have to run... He's done terrible things..." Nani shook with fear and pointed wildly at the silver markings running up her arm, "Do you know what this means? We have to get away from him!" "I know what it means!" cried Alexi, grabbing her friend by the shoulders. "It means you can't get away from him." When Nani awakens in the jungles of Brazil, she has no idea who she is or how she came to the tiny missionary hospital. But soon she and her new friends are carried away to the world of Milana and soon find themselves under threat from the Hunters of Avoria. As they seek to unravel Nani's past and find their place in a new world, the group is forced to align with one of the Hunters. Can they trust him? Will they offer him a chance at redemption? The first book of The Milana Legends, The Pillar of Light is a Christian fantasy adventure about brave living, redemption, and forgiveness. Discover a thrilling journey through an enchanting world where faith blends with the fantastic. "Much like C.S. Lewis' stories about Narnia, the young people find themselves in a world other than their own with a challenge they must face in order to save themselves, but also to destroy the evil forces. Like Lewis, the author of The Pillar of Light parallels parables from the Bible to develop her plot. This is an exciting story for young people, a story about faith, love and the power of friendship as they work together to combat the many forces of evil."
