Science in public : communication, culture, and credibility by Jane Gregory( Book )
25 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 617 libraries worldwide
In Science in Public the ideas of sociologists and communications researchers rub shoulders with the expectations of politicians and the hopes of educators. The public is here, and so is science, in both their idealized and real-world guises. The book's scope is broad, as is the subject

The chemical cosmos : a guided tour by Steve Miller( Book )
18 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 102 libraries worldwide
If you have ever wondered how we get from the awesome impersonality of the Big Bang universe to the point where living creatures can start to form, and evolve into beings like you, your friends and your family, wonder no more. Steve Miller provides us with a tour through the chemical evolution of the universe, from the formation of the first molecules all the way to the chemicals required for life to evolve. Using a simple Hydrogen molecule {u2013} known as H-three-plus - as a guide, he takes us on a journey that starts with the birth of the first stars, and how, in dying, they pour their hearts out into enriching the universe in which we live. Our molecular guide makes its first appearance at the source of the Chemical Cosmos, at a time when only three elements and a total of 11 molecules existed. From those simple beginnings, H-three-plus guides us down river on the violent currents of exploding stars, through the streams of the Interstellar Medium, and into the delta where new stars and planets form. We are finally left on the shores of the sea of life. Along the way, we meet the key characters who have shaped our understanding of the chemistry of the universe, such as Cambridge physicist J.J. Thomson and the Chicago chemist Takeshi Oka. And we are given an insider{u2019}s view of just how astronomers, making use of telescopes and Earth-orbiting satellites, have put together our modern view of the Chemical Cosmos

The British Columbia high technology sector : input/output analysis by Gurmit Singh Sandhu( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Defining the British Columbia high technology/knowledge sector in British Columbia by BC Stats( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Lack of widely accepted definition for high technology industry makes it difficult to assess that sector's performance and hampers efforts to develop effective policies and programs to assist the industry's growth and development. This paper has the goal of identifying the set of standard industries in British Columbia that will be included in the high technology definition. This is done by reviewing and comparing the industries identified by nine different studies of the high technology industry. Together, these studies consider many criteria commonly associated with high technology activity, such as research and development, employment of scientists, and production and use of advanced high-technology commodities. The study begins with a macro-approach that selects a set of standard industrial classifications (SICs) that show the strongest tendency toward high technology activities. This approach is modified by applying high-tech percentages to SIC totals to account for high-tech companies classified in industries that do not show high technology characteristics and those companies in high-tech SICs whose operations lag behind the industry norm
