MOVING TOGETHER #15 *******
An e-mail based sporadic publication of technology-related items for kinesiologists complied by Ken Daley.
http://www.medsite.com: The premier medical search
Several people on Nettrain pointed me to Medline as the premier
source for medical research on the Net. I thought that perhaps other
listmembers would like to know that there is a guide to Medline
Resources online at:
and an excellent Medline Comparison table at: http://www.medmatrix.org/info/medlinetable.html
The latter compares numerous facets of the various Medlines on the Web, including fees, registration process, query options, novice/expert level, full text access etc.
The highest rank Medline, which is FREE even for full text retrieval and with immediate access to a comprehensive database (ranked as expert level, and providing related links) is: NCBI Pub Medline Retrieval system
Avicenna Medline is also immediate and free, even for full text retrieval - http://www.avicenna.com
Three other high ranked Medlines, also free with immediate access but with a minimal fee for full-text retrieval are:
Helix Medline: http://www.HELIX.com/
Hope this is helpful to many....

The number of new Internet users appears to be stabilizing, with growth rates hovering at less than 5%, according to a demographics study released last week by the Georgia Institute of Technology. According to Tech's survey, the number of users is now around 30 million -- that's a good bit lower than Nielsen's recent estimate of 50 million. "What brought people online were all the different service providers really gearing up," says a Tech researcher. "We don't know whether it will pick up again. There hasn't been that much change of the last three surveys." (Tampa Tribune 16 Jun 97).

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., based in San Diego, has developed a new process to build ultrathin silicon chips on a base of pure sapphire. Unlike semiconductor bases, the sapphire layer is nonconductive -- no electricity can pass through, meaning that radio frequency and logic circuits that previously had to be built in separate chips in order to avoid interference, can now be packed side-by-side on a single chip. The company predicts its new chips will lead to cheaper satellites and mobile phones, not to mention the advent of tiny portable communicators, such as Dick Tracy-style wristwatch phones.

Reflective liquid crystal displays, which use ambient light to
reduce power consumption and extend battery life, have up until now
produced somewhat washed-out-looking images, with poor contrast
between color and brightness. But now Toshiba, Sharp, Matsushita and
others both are making advances in producing thin, light-weight
panels that use less power than conventional displays, and industry
experts say reflective-LCD quality will soon reach "newspaper level"
-- defined as a 5:1 contrast ration and about 60% reflectance. A
professor at Tohoku University predicts that reflective LCDs
eventually will become the screen of choice because of their superior
readability. (TechWire 11 May 97)
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University envision a huge multimedia database that could store minute-by-minute details of your waking life, all packed on a hard disk the size of a quarter. "Your great-great-grandchildren will be able to ask your database about your life and times," says Dr. Raj Reddy, dean of the School of Computer Science. As hard-drive prices plummet, "storing all your visual experiences during your 5,840 waking hours per year, including all your creative expressions, will soon cost less than $1,000," predicts the director of CMU's new Human Computer Interaction Institute, who predicts that in about 15 years, storage costs will fall to about $50 for 100 years of life. Meanwhile, making computers think more like people is the goal of the new Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition: "Every man, woman and child will soon be using information technology as an integral part of their daily lives," says Reddy. "So we're spending intellectual capital to understand how to make IT like driving a car. Most people drive, yet they don't care much about how the engine works. Whereas 90 years ago, you had to be your own mechanic." (Business Week 23 Jun 97)
Industry observers say Hewlett-Packard's entry into the digital
camera market is a back-door approach aimed at turning its gear into
the "home digital darkroom" of the future -- promoting its printers
as the replacement for old-fashioned film developing. Next year, HP
will debut a printer that can download pictures directly from a
digital camera -- no PC needed -- and future plans call for a
"digital mailbox" specially designed to zap photos and other images
to your friends and loved ones via the Internet. "It will
fundamentally change the way people think about photography," says HP
CEO Lewis Platt. Kodak CEO George Fisher responds, "I find the idea
that HP is somehow going to take over photography somewhat humorous.
People know what a Kodak moment is, but an HP moment? I don't think
so." (Business Week 7 Jul 97)
Working together with colleagues at Russia's Ioffe Institute and
the University of Virginia, a professor of solid-state electronics at
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has developed a prototype chip that
transmits signals as waves, rather than packets of electrons. The
process is analogous to the way that sound travels through the air on
waves rather than as clumps of sound-carrying molecules. This
so-called "plasma-wave" technology could boost the speeds of
microprocessors well into the gigahertz range, and enable sensors of
such extreme sensitivity that they could detect the molecular
vibrations of specific substances, such as explosives. (Business Week

Moving Together is not an official publication of Maharishi University of Management. It is nothing other than a personal try to share / create a collective wisdom in the area of technology as it impacts professional Kinesiologists.
