Science (arising from the Latin “scientia”, meaning knowledge) is the human effort to understand how the natural world works. Through a broad range of scientific disciplines, mankind uses both observational and experimental methods to observe natural phenomena, prove or disprove theories on those phenomena and expand proven scientific knowledge for advancements in many fields like medicine and engineering.
With the threat of disease and famine, scientists are always discovering new technologies that help humanity and the world. Due to diseases such as cancer and AIDS, money is constantly poured into studies that are devoted to developing cures and treatments. Not only that, but alternative energy is a fast growing market and as carbon-based fuel becomes more scarce, the world turns to scientists to discover alternative energy sources.
Everyone came into the world to accomplish one mission or the other; however, for many of us knowing what precisely we were called by God to do can be a problem. This is the reason why there came a helper to help many individuals understand what exactly did God call them to do in this world. This helper is non-other than other than the Indiana Wesleyan University. This is a Christian College that is aimed at helping its students discern what exactly it is that God is calling someone to be.
How is this done? You may ask; the Christian university does this by challenging its students to discover what exactly they are called to do. After one discerns what it is, they are called to do, the university teaches the student to live his or her life according to that calling. For more information, interested students are gladly welcomed to visit the school’s premises or the school’s website.
The Melbourne Research Office has a very strong client focus and a culture that drives the provision of high quality research services, nurtures strong relationships with both academic and administrative staff, and ensures that research activities are administered in a fashion that optimises outcomes for the University, while at the same time minimising risk. This is achieved through the dedication of a workforce that is committed to achieving our aim of “supporting the University of Melbourne to become one of the finest universities in the world”.

The Zamorano University Agriculture Graduate School education is one of the highest quality and harbors more than 1,000 students who studying together and live together in a residential environment enriched with different cultures, man and woman, challenges and experiences. The campus becomes home for classmates, who will become ‘brothers’ & ‘sisters’ and friends for a lifetime.
Many of us take for granted the fact that we will have the safe food and water that we need to survive. We also take for granted the fact that it will be safe for consumption. Little do we know, there is much more that goes on behind the scenes than just simple growing, preparation, packaging, and cooking. There are strict guidelines to follow and scientists involved every step of the way.
Food science is the study of every aspect of food. It covers every step – from the harvesting and slaughtering to the cooking and consumption of food. It is classified as a life science, and scientists specializing in food science study microbiology, chemical engineering, and biochemistry, among others. They are responsible for the best way to grow crops, raising animals, preserving our food, and even the way we eat our food.
Predicting where Australia’s next mineral boom will come from is serious business. Data collected using satellite sensing, airborne surveys, seismic crews and prospecting teams is immense and is piling up rapidly. But what use are all these data?
‘This is a vast electronic resource and we need new methods to mine it for useful information,’ said Professor Dietmar Müller of the University of Sydney.
Professor Müller and his team are developing electronic tools to access and compile the data so that the changes over geological time in the Earth’s crust can be tracked and simulated. Known as the Virtual Geological Observatory (VIRGO), it is one of the new-generation tools Australia will need for future mineral exploration.

We know more about the surface of Mars than we do of the earth beneath our feet. Australian earth scientists are calling for a national program to map our country – 300 metres down under.
By mapping the surface of the continent last century, Australia’s geologists helped to locate the minerals that underpin our economy today. Now most of the surface deposits have been discovered and are being mined. To find more, researchers argue that we need to go deep into the Earth to understand where ore bodies are formed.
