America the Beautiful

Independence Day is coming up. It makes me reflect on the history of the United States and the issues concerning it today. Nova Science Publishers has put out many books on an array of topics pertaining to the United States. Below is a small sampling you can find on our site:

 

 

We look up at the same stars and see such different things….

 

i-have-loved-the-stars-too-fondly-violet-gray

With the arrival of summer my thoughts turn to the sky. More often than not, I find myself looking up at the stars on warm summer nights. Sometimes it helps me think. Other times I think of nothing and just admire the beauty of the cosmos. We all see something different. Some people see a wish to be made. Others see a frontier that must be explored. Whatever we see one thing is true, the universe has inspired humankind in many ways and with that inspiration came advances in science. Here are some things we can thank space exploration for:

  • Water Filtration and Purification
  • CAT Scans
  • Scratch resistant lenses
  • Cell Phone cameras
  • The hand-held vacuum cleaner
  • Firefighter breathing apparatus
  • Blankets for Marathon runners
  • Freeze dried meals and baby food
  • Heart surgery – The lasers used were originally developed by NASA to monitor gases in the atmosphere of the Earth.
  • Artificial Limbs
  • Satellite Television
  • Voice-controlled wheelchairs

Over the years the company has grown to include different media formats. We participate in conferences and book fairs worldwide. We stay connected globally via social media. We have reason to celebrate our history and our ability to keep up with Frank’s vision of the company he started. Our eye is on the future now. There are improvement projects in the works and we are always reaching out to find the most current research to publish. We’re raising the bar to improve for you, our colleagues and readers.

Children’s Awareness Month

2_12_7cb90d95705b9a3a78908a4777565e11

Below is an excerpt from an interview given by Ernie Allen, president and CEO of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children:

These days, summer is all about structure for most kids. Whether it’s camp, daycare, summer school or other activity, it’s important for kids to be supervised. It’s hard to hear about kids being taken or hurt, but it does happen, and that’s why June is Child Safety Awareness Month. “Child safety is important all year, but summer is an especially important time for parents and children to include safety in their activities,” said Ernie Allen, president and CEO of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Keep your kids safe by starting with prevention. Be sure your child knows exactly where you live – street address, city, all applicable phone numbers, and of course how to use the telephone. It’s helpful to give kids the number of a trusted adult or neighbor as well. Inform your children of people from whom it’s OK to accept car rides. If you know you’ll need someone your child might not know to pick him up, choose a code word that the person can give the child to let him know he’s trustworthy.

Children’s Awareness Month is also a perfect time to call attention to health and wellness in youngsters across the country. There are a few childhood health issues in particular that are concerning to pediatricians:

– Limit the child’s sugar intake. Sugar is one of the worst substances for both children and adults to consume it in excess.

– Encourage children to get up and get active. Limit time on the computer and in front of the television.

– Visit a pediatrician regularly for checkups to catch, manage and treat health concerns.

To learn more about children’s issues check out some of our relevant titles which may be found on our web site:

 

In keeping with Children’s Awareness Month, here are some fun facts for you to share with the children in your life!

  • The average person walks the equivalent of five times around the world in a lifetime.

 

  • Did you know, salt is an anti-ant element! Yes, without the need of using the chemicals, you can sprinkle the salt on the doorways, sills of windows and any other places where the ant sneaks!
  • An individual blood cell takes about 60 seconds to make a complete circuit of the body.
  •  In a room of just 23 people there’s a 50% chance that two people have the same birthday.
  • Rabbits and parrots can see behind themselves without even moving their heads. It would be really hard to sneak up on them!
  • Venus is the only planet in the solar system that rotates clockwise, whereas all other planets rotate anti-clock wise.
  • Zebra stripe patterns are unique and just like fingerprints; no zebra carries similar stripes with other.
  • Did you know that Banana is actually a berry, but Strawberry is not!

Science is Everywhere

Discovery.jpg

I am always in awe of the patience and determination that scientists have. There are so many instances when experiments do not go as planned and yet they persevere. In experiments, one of three things happens: a new way not to do something was learned, the hypothesis is confirmed or an unexpected happy result comes about. Allow me to tell you a personal story that happened just this past weekend regarding the latter. My strengths lie in writing and research, not baking. My young daughter wanted to bake cupcakes for company we were having that evening. At the last minute, I realized that I had no eggs but I did have liquid egg whites. I found a conversion chart but it was for egg whites, not liquid egg whites. I used them and hoped for the best. After making the batter it became abundantly clear to me that it was the incorrect consistency. The batter was far too runny. My hypothesis was that they would not solidify during baking and we would be making a last minute trip to the bakery. To my surprise and to the delight of my daughter, 18 minutes later we had golden cupcakes! A little softer in texture, but they looked and smelled like cupcakes. I did not tell our guests what had happened and everyone raved about them! “They’re so light and airy!” I try not to eat sweets but took a bite to see what the fuss was about. They tasted like little angel food cakes! The result was contrary to my hypotheses and I made a discovery. I confess, I felt a bit like a scientist. So to all of you researchers out there, keep doing what you do! Press on with your experiments and let us know when you are ready to share and publish your results:
