586 Million Year Cycle in Geology Matches Galactic Super-Cluster Spacings
The longest geological cycle identified is described as about 600 million years in "Megacycles", the proceedings of a geological conference, Edited by G Williams. However Prof. S. Afanasiev of Moscow has determined the cycle very accurately to be 586.24 million years using his Nanocycles Method. It so happens that cosmologists, Broadhurst, T.J., Ellis, R.S., Koo, D.C. & Szalay (Nature 343, p 726) have observed regular mega-walls of galaxies at spacings that they describe as 128 Mpc/h, which base

Circle Patterns Documentation 1.0
This code is an implementation of the Circle Pattern method for finding discrete conformal Delaunay parameterizations of triangle meshes of arbitrary genus. In short, this method works as follows: given the initial mesh (and values for the cone singularities in case of higher genus meshes) it computes an optimal arrangement of circumcircles of the faces of the mesh. This arrangement is found in two steps, first quadratic programming is used to find the angles under which the circles intersect, t

Are women still experiencing gender discrimination in income and employment positions?
The purpose of this research is to examine the gender pay-gap and the potential factors that contribute to income inequality. Since passing the Equal Pay Act the median weekly earnings of women is still just $0.72 for every dollar men earn. To put this in context the pay-gap in 1970 was $0.62 and in 1992 it was $0.75 (Institute for Women’s Policy Research, 1993). Secondary data analysis of the 2003 American Time Use Survey purports the potential reasons why the pay-gap still continues. This re
