Why are we fascinated by the night sky? With this single question Patrick Moore sets out on a journey of exploration which takes the listener to the edge of the universe and back. Was ever a man more engaged and associated with his subject matter than Patrick Moore? He has become synonymous with astronomy, and we have grown up over the last 50 years with his name and voice becoming comfortingly familiar. His TV programme The Sky at Night is the longest running TV show in the world. In 2007 it celebrated 50 years of broadcasting. He has had countless guests in that time, including recently, astronomy enthusiast Brian May the guitarist in Queen. It is safe to say that he has become a much loved figure and a national icon. His appearance and his distinctive voice have become entwined in our national culture. Appearances in such shows as Have I got News For You, Dr Who and the Morecambe and Wise Show have added to his appeal beyond fans of astronomy. And surely he is Britain’s best known xylophone player? This marvellous recording is no dry science lesson. His enthusiasm for his subject is positively infectious. Aimed principally at the newcomer to astronomy, he makes even the most extraordinary concepts comprehensible. This is a wonderful companion to the night sky. As is the man himself. 1.

Introduction to Data Science: Data Analysis and Prediction Algorithms with R introduces concepts and skills that can help you tackle real-world data analysis challenges. It covers concepts from probability, statistical inference, linear regression, and machine learning. It also helps you develop skills such as R programming, data wrangling, data visualization, predictive algorithm building, file organization with UNIX/Linux shell, version control with Git and GitHub, and reproducible document preparation. This book is a textbook for a first course in data science. No previous knowledge of R is necessary, although some experience with programming may be helpful. The book is divided into six parts: R, data visualization, statistics with R, data wrangling, machine learning, and productivity tools. Each part has several chapters meant to be presented as one lecture. The author uses motivating case studies that realistically mimic a data scientist's experience. He starts by asking specific questions and answers these through data analysis so concepts are learned as a means to answering the questions. Examples of the case studies included are: US murder rates by state, self-reported student heights, trends in world health and economics, the impact of vaccines on infectious disease rates, the financial crisis of 2007-2008, election forecasting, building a baseball team, image processing of hand-written digits, and movie recommendation systems. The statistical concepts used to answer the case study questions are only briefly introduced, so complementing with a probability and statistics textbook is highly recommended for in-depth understanding of these concepts. If you read and understand the chapters and complete the exercises, you will be prepared to learn the more advanced concepts and skills needed to become an expert. A complete solutions manual is available to registered instructors who require the text for a course.

Household based treatment and safe storage (HWTS) of drinking water is widely recognised as a cost-effective intervention. Infact, the approach could well represent a means to secure access for communities in the developing world. In some of these communities, the infectious disease epidemiology still much reflects the impact of poor water, sanitation and hygiene conditions, among other issues. This work focuses on childhood diarrhoeal illness. Could HWTS be a useful intervention? The microbiological efficacy and health impact of HWTS is well documented. The question then arises: As the household is such a key player in the package, what are the factors that would influence the acceptability and continued use of HWTS by households? This work sought to respond to this question by examining the field evidence available up to February 2007. Since then there has been an increase in the investigations on the subject. Consequently, an updated review is being prepared. It is anticipated that this work will contribute to efforts towards the translation of research knowledge into relevant, effective and efficient policy and practice.

Calf mortality rate in 2007 in Peshawar (Pakistan) was 17.98% (Khan et al., 2007). Major causes of mortality of neonatal calves were the conditions like diarrhea and pneumonia (Khan et al., 2009, Shimizu and Nagatoma 1978). The neonatal calf mortality in the first month of age is more than 80% of the total mortality in calves (Jenny et al., 1981). Mortality in calves was found due to the conditions e.g. Feeding practices, managemental practices, weather conditions, bacterial and viral infections especially those causing septicemia, diarrhea and enteritis (Blood et al., 1994).The etiology of neonatal calf diarrhea involves a variety of infectious, nutritional, immunological and environmental factors. Many of the infectious agents have been isolated and identified from the feces and tissues of diarrheic calves but the relative importance of each one has not been established. Recently, infections of individual calves and herds with multiple enteropathogens have been described (Acres et al 1977, Moren M.1974, Brown et al 1973).

Transfer of knowledge and exchange of ideas are current questions of research. In spite of this general interest in cross-cultural scientific relations, Europe’s contacts to Russia have been only superficially studied so far. Besides the language problem, the prevalent misestimation of Russia’s role as a mere recipient seems to pose a major obstacle. Clearing this barrier is a main concern of the long-term project Scientific Relations Between Germany and Russia in the Fields of Chemistry, Pharmacy and Medicine in the 19 th Century at the Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities. This project, which started in May 2007 und is scheduled to run until 2018, continues the great biobibliographical tradition of the Saxon Academy as well as profound studies performed at the Karl Sudhoff Institute for the History of Medicine and Science (Leipzig University, Medical Faculty) that have been financially supported by the German Research Foundation from 1999 to 2006.The academy project and the Karl Sudhoff Institute cooperated in organizing the international conference Science as a Medium of Communication between Germany and Russia in the 19 th Century which took place from September 29 to October 1, 2010 in Leipzig. The conference aimed at bringing together scholars with specialized knowledge of this field and provided a platform for exchanging experience in methods and issues of transnational science studies. A fundamental target was the documentation of major figures and the description of their institutional settings. Since the project is dedicated to history and philosophy of science in general, contributions on changes of scientific paradigms and on the history of concepts and ideas were also encouraged.The convention gathered about 30 scholars from all over the world as well as some 20 local specialists to discuss various historical aspects of the bilateral scientific relations between the German speaking countries and the Russian Czardom. Thus, the interdisciplinary program covered numerous facets of history of science – social, cultural, educational, institutional and intellectual history and history of medicine, biology, chemistry, pharmacy, psychology and geography.This volume presents the conference papers arranged according to subjects. The first section, which precedes the special essays, contains preliminary remarks and an introductory speech: Heiner KADEN, vice-president of the Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities, discusses the long research tradition in the history of science at Leipzig and the roots of the project on German-Russian scientific relations in the 19 th century. During the conference two keynote speakers outlined the main features of scientific encounters and provided a European contextualisation: Dietrich VON ENGELHARDT (Luebeck) described the international exchange of ideas at the beginning of the 19 th century with special reference to Italy, while Matthias MIDDELL (Leipzig) gave an inspiring analysis of the discontinuities in the French-Russian scientific, cultural and economic relations.The second part is dedicated to chemistry and pharmacy. Selected protagonists of scientific transfer are Friedrich Konrad BEILSTEIN (Elena ROUSSANOVA, Hamburg), Gustav VON BUNGE (Regine and Gerd PFREPPER, Leipzig), Ivan S. PLOTNIKOV (Elena A. ZAITSEVA, Moscow) and Vladimir I. VERNADSKY (Marina Ju. SOROKINA, Moscow). This is complemented by Gisela BOECK’s (Rostock) observations concerning the use of the periodic table in school instruction and Christoph FRIEDRICH’s (Marburg) general overview of German apothecaries in Russia in the 19 th century.The third section covers medicine and psychology: Galina KICHIGINA (Toronto) highlights the importance of Karl Johann VON SEIDLITZ regarding the implementation of physical examination in clinical practice, Vladimir A. ABASHNIK (Kharkov) reveales the connections between Emil Heinrich DU BOIS-REYMOND and the Kharkov medical faculty, and Florian MILDENBERGER (Frankfurt/Oder) describes the obstacles Emil KRAEPELIN has encountered during his years at Dorpat. Saulo DE FREITAS ARAUJO (Brazil) discusses Wilhelm WUNDT’s influence on Vladimir M. BECHTEREV’s concept of scientific psychology, Natal’ja Ju. MASOLIKOVA (Moscow) addresses the personal relations between members of the Russian psychological society and Leipzig University, and Susanne GUSKI- LEINWAND (Heidelberg) delineates Aleksander NECHAYEV’s experimental psychology.The fourth chapter deals with hygiene as a new leading science in the 19 th century, a topic which proved to be one of the central points of interest during the conference: Vladimir S. SOBOLEV (St. Petersburg) describes the fight of the Russian naval forces against infectious diseases, while Florian STEGER, Nadine MEYER and Wolfgang LOCHER (Munich) evaluate Max von PETTENKOFER’s impact on the development of Public Health in Russia. Lutz HAEFNER (Goettingen) illustrates the transfer of hygienic knowledge using the example of the Saratov medical society, Konstantin K. VASYLYEV (Sumy) deals with the role of German physicians in the development of the Odessa health resort, and Bjoern FELDER (Goettingen) traces Evgenii SHEPILEVSKY’s role in the Russian eugenics movement.The fifth group of presentations pursues conceptional changes in biology: The zoological section includes Sergei I. FOKIN’s (St. Petersburg) description of Otto BUETSCHLI’s key role in the development of Russian zoology, but the general focus is on evolution: Thomas SCHMUCK (Berlin) analyses Christian Heinrich PANDER’s reflections on metamorphosis, while Eduard I. KOLCHINSKY (St. Petersburg) traces the German influence on Russian evolutionism, and Erki TAMMIKSAAR (Tartu) gives an introduction to Karl Ernst VON BAER’s ecological and evolutionary thinking. Nadezhda V. SLEPKOVA (St. Petersburg) addresses the conflicts between the “Russian” and the “German” parties at the Imperial Academy of Science in St. Petersburg using the example of the zoological museum, and last but not least Anastasia A. FEDOTOVA (St. Petersburg) depicts the rise of plant geography in Russia.The last section collects biographical approaches: The professionalisation of veterinary medicine is reflected in the St. Petersburg society of veterinarians (Natalia E. BEREGOY, St. Petersburg), and Anna ANANIEVA describes the close relations between VON BAER and the Leipzig publisher Leopold VOSS. A panel on prosopography concluded the conference, presenting work in progress for discussion: Daniela ANGETTER (Vienna) discusses a research project on the history of medicine and pharmacy at Lviv University, Vladimir A. VOLKOV and Marina V. KULIKOVA (Moscow) present their biographical encyclopedia of the professors in the Russian Czardom, and Marta FISCHER (Leipzig) specifies the conception of a biobibliographical encyclopedia of the German-Russian scientific relations.Without a doubt, the conference opened chances for international cooperation and provided opportunities for interdisciplinary communication. As reflected in the extensive index of persons, an admirably huge amount of facts is compiled. Yet, in light of the richness of detail, analyses and interpretations are underrepresented, discussions and personal talks showed that yet time is not ripe for general conclusions. It will be up to the project’s research program to work out a general guideline, to consider the results and to comment on the implications.
