8. National Nanotechnology Initiative(NNI)

9. Geographical Information System(GIS)
There is a job opening for Professor of Justice Studies(GIS), Spatial and Statistical Analysis at Winston-Salem State U in North Carolina for a PhD in criminal justice, criminology, sociology or related field from an accredited institution. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in spatial analysis and geographic information system(GIS) technology.

That is one application of GIS-not just the criminals with ankle tag whose movement is monitored with the GIS which has GPS or geophysical Positioning system and also the contraband radioactive sources and machines, toxic chemicals and metals etc.

Someday, most if not all hazardous substances can be monitored by GIS, including radioactive, chemically toxic, reactive, inflammable and corrosive, e.g. chemicals, fuels, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polycarbonate, polyethylene, polyimide, polystyrene, polyurethane, polymethylmethacrylate, benzene, toluene, xylene, nitrous oxide, sulfur dioxide, and biochemically toxic agents such as nerve gas agents, anthrax, possible plant pathogens, etc. Also asbestos?, fiberglass?, acrylic?

Perhaps GIS can locate earthquake faults, potential climatological factors that will lead to adverse environmental and weather conditions etc.

10. The New Elements in the Periodic Table of Elements, http://www.dayah.com/periodic/
which is described in http://www.freewebs.com/ftcuatableofelements/ and http://homepage.mac.com/dtrapp/Elements/combination2.html

Question 1: What is the Relative Biological Effectiveness of the new elements? Quality Factor? Index of Harm?
The question is with very short half life that was not detected and catalogued or studied, how do you obtain the RBE, QF, Index of Harm etc. See National Council of Radiation Protection(NCRP) documents.

http://www.ncrponline.org/Publications/Publications.html

http://www.ncrppublications.org/index.cfm?fm=Product.Search&cid=1&p=1

Question 2: Is there a need to bother with the very short half-life? Perhaps the answer is theoretically yes because the energies and radioactive, physical, chemical, biological hazards would have been released and spent already leading to medical problems that was not identified vis a vis that particular "element" etc.

Question 3: Is there a way to do epidemiological studies of the new elements? Can we do whole body counting, bioassay like urinalysis and fecal analysis and the more dainty teeth, nails, hairs, salivas or sputum etc. also analysis of blood,

Question 4: Is there a need to extend Transuranium Registry to the New Elements?

Question 5: How about for the toxic elements and substances like Pb, Cd, Hg, As, what else?

1. In the nuclear fusion reaction in the sun that we call solar flares and solar winds, also at the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab, in the nuclear fission reaction during the nuclear weapon detonation in the Hiroshima, Nagasaki, testings by the Americans, Russians, Chinese, French, English, Indians, Pakistanis, who else? there are energy releases and linear energy transfer and energy losses and production of new radionucllides which has a distinctive radiotoxicity and chemical toxicity being new or old elements that can be detected by methods in consonance with flash photolysis originally invented by Dr. Manfred Eigen and his two colleagues, Dr. Ronald Norris and Dr. George Porter, died in the 80s, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1967. LET alpha, beta, gamma, x-ray, neutron, proton, alpha, heavy ion, star aggregates, fission track etch and spectrometer can detect all these before nsec, or faster or slower time lapsed or decay period. Do not forget spontaneous fission from terrestrial sources of uranics and transuranics globally. Also, do not forget the research reactors, nuclear power plants, radiation research, radiation sources and machines in the Federal or National Research Laboratories, Hanford Reservation, Nuclear Waste Dumps and Interim Waste Storage Facilities whether Radioactive, Chemically Toxic, Reactive, Inflammable and Corrosive, Biological Hazards such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis

Product Information Compliance System(PICS) for insecticides, fungicides and pesticides

2. The radiation, chemical and biological toxicity should be monitored. How to prevent them is by adequate radiation shielding and ventilation and protective clothings and eradication of the source etc.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_photolysis

Flash photolysis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Flash photolysis is a pump-probe technique, in which a laser of nanosecond, picosecond, or femtosecond pulse width is excited by a short-pulse light source such as a flash lamp. The technique was developed in 1949 by Manfred Eigen, Ronald George Wreyford Norrish and George Porter , who won the 1967 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for this invention.
Flash photolysis was developed shortly after World War II as a result of the military attempts to build cameras fast enough to photograph missiles in flight. As an analytical technique it was introduced to scientists by Manfred Eigen, Ronald Norrish and George Porter, who jointly won the 1967 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for this invention. Within the past 40 years the technique became more powerful and sophisticated due to the developments in optics and lasers. Also the interest in this method grew considerably as the practical applications expanded from chemistry to biology, materials science, environmental sciences, etc. Nowadays flash photolysis facilities are extensively used by researchers to study light induced processes in organic molecules, polymers, nanoparticles, semiconductors, photosynthesis in plants, signaling and light induced conformational changes in biological systems, etc.
