Back in the days of Christopher Columbus, voyages made across bodies of water were dependent upon winds and currents to drive the sailing ships. Thus good navigation routes were often determined by prevailing weather conditions such as the Trade Winds, and then discovered by explorers. In this lesson, students will explore the wind climatology for the Atlantic Ocean basin (as determined by satellite data from the past ten years), and then compare it to the route documented by Columbus in 1492.

Combining Kuhn and Jung: half edited long version of a ‘step ladder model’ ...

Combining Kuhn and Jung: half edited long version of a ‘step ladder model’ (SLM) forscientific discovery and paradigm shift researchSam Keenan*Learning Centre, University of New South Wales, Sydney, NSW, Australia(Received 5 December 2014; accepted 7 April 2015)This half edited book provides the outline of a ‘step ladder model’ (SLM) comprising 13 steps ofscientific discovery making. It incorporates both a ‘leap-off point’ from Kuhn’sStructure of Scientific Revolutions, and ideas from Jungian psychology to revealpatterns in the way in which scientific discoveries are made, across 40 examples fromthe history of science. The current consensus is that these discoveries are accidental.This paper aims to provide a model for deliberately making dream-based scientificdiscoveries. The key to this model is intrapsychic patterns in how discoveries of thiskind can be made. As these patterns become gradually clearer, greater understandingof the dream-based scientific discovery-making process can develop. Gradually as acollective endeavour, as the SLM develops, the dream-based scientific discoveryprocess can by degrees become less accidental, and progressively more deliberate. Step 13 is included here as suggestions on how to fail as safely as possible while innovating. This is because success cannot be guaranteed and fails outnumber successes overwhelmingly. A background analysis section is also included. Further editing and writing and re-writing is welcomed. Thank you.Keywords: Kuhn; Jung; paradigm; revolutionary science; inspiration; creativity

This resource contains presentations from one of the Center for Automotive Research's (CAR's) breakfast briefings titled "Automotive Fuels and Emissions: Policies, Compliance, & Potential Impact of Future Technologies." This briefing occurred on 12/5/13 at Robert Bosch LLC in Farmington Hills, MI. At the briefing presenters discussed the strategic implications of Tier 3 regulations which will soon be finalized and may impact future technology decisions in a multitude of ways. The impact of Tier 3 emission regulations is expected to be far reaching as they have the potential to influence the quality of fuel, as well as usage of alternative fuels and powertrains. Further, the regulations will have a direct influence on the technologies, such as diesel and gasoline direct injection, that automakers will utilize to meet the fuel economy standards through MY2025. Included in this resource are the presentations from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Volkswagen, and Bosch utilized at the briefing.
