2nd Crisis in Cosmology Conference, CCC-2 : proceedings of a conference held at Port Angeles, Washington, USA, 7-11 September 2008 by Crisis in Cosmology Conference( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 56 libraries worldwide
The papers in this volume are based upon talks given at the 2nd Crisis in Cosmology Conference (CCC-2) held 7-11 September 2008 in Port Angeles, Washington, USA, and sponsored by the Meta Research Organization (MRI), the International Academy for Cosmological Studies (IACS) and the Virtual Institute of Rational Astrophysics (VIRA). As a continuation of the 1st Crisis in Cosmology Conference (CCC-1) held in 2005 in Monção, Portugal, the contributions herein emphasize alternative interpretations of the astrophysical and cosmological data collected from numerous sources, including satellites and ground-based telescopes. The conference began with investigations into the reality of cosmic expansion and the possible origins of the background microwave radiation, including interpreting hydrogen cloud separation data, utilizing the Tolman surface brightness test of galaxies, searching for time dilation in the quasar light curves, and examining the limits of LCDM cosmology. Presentation on the properties of quasar redshifts, the evolution of large scale structures, and the physics ground rules for evaluating alternative cosmologies followed, as well as discussion of several alternative cosmology proposals based upon familiar physical principles and recent data. Some new alternative redshift mechanisms involving novel scattering processes near starts and in the intergalactic medium leading to the Hubble relationship were discussed. Dark matter and dark energy alternatives were also proposed. The final paper presents two unique diagrams predicting the angular distance as a function of redshift (reproduced on the front cover) and the luminosity distance as a function of redshift for 12 cosmological models so that the definitive predictions of these cosmologies can be seen in comparison to the standard LCDM cosmology. The accumulation of more data in the near future should enable researchers to distinguish which cosmological model agrees best with the empirical evidence

Hunger in America 2010 national report prepared for Feeding America : final report ( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The Hunger in America series is the largest study of domestic hunger, providing comprehensive and statistically-valid data on our charitable food distribution system and the people Feeding America serves. Hunger in America 2010 is extremely detailed, drawing on data from more than 61,000 interviews with clients and over 37,000 surveys of local charitable agencies. The report shows that hunger is increasing at an alarming rate in the United States, and our network is expanding its reach in response: According to Hunger in America 2010 data, Feeding America annually provides food to 37 million Americans, including nearly 14 million children. This is an increase of 46 percent over 2006, when we were feeding 25 million Americans, including 9 million children, each year. That means one in eight Americans now rely on Feeding America for food and groceries. Feeding America's nationwide network of food banks is feeding 1 million more Americans each week than we did in 2006. Thirty-six percent of the households we serve have at least one employed adult. More than one-third of client households report having to choose between food and other basic necessities, such as rent, utilities and medical care. The number of children the Feeding America network serves has increased by 50 percent since 2006
