The Scottish Parliamentary process has been designed to be as open as possible. This is reflected not only in the procedures that have been established, but also in the design of the Parliament building itself. The debating chamber, which was central

Birding at the Museum: Frank Chapman and the Dioramas
Naturalist and long-time exhibition artist Stephen C. Quinn tells the story of his "all-time Museum hero," Frank M. Chapman, who worked in the Ornithology Department from 1888 to 1942. Chapman's career is a litany of firsts: first curator of birds at the Museum, writer of the first field guides to birds, creator of Christmas bird counts, and first to recognize the power of the habitat displays to build public concern about existential threats to bird species.

4.4.1 Tidal Energy

The energy that causes the slow but regular rise and fall of the tides around our coastlines is not the same as that which creates waves. It is caused principally by the gravitational pull of the moon on the world's oceans. The sun also plays a minor role, not through its radiant energy but in the form of its gravitational pull, which exerts a small additional effect on tidal rhythms.

The principal technology for harnessing tidal energy essentially involves building a low dam, or barrag

2.9 Repeated measurements

Scientists are always concerned with the reliability and precision of their data, and this is the prime reason for them to repeat measurements many times. Consider the photograph shown in Figure 6, which is the result of X-ray diffraction (see Box 5). To determine the atomic structure of the substance that produced this pattern, it would be necessary to measure the diameters of the fuzzy rings. At one time, this would probably have been done with an instrument called a travelling microscope;
