Barnard's discoveries also earned him a scholarship to Vanderbilt University. In 1887 the 30-year-old graduate joined the Lick Observatory of the University of California at Santa Cruz (in his resume he listed all his discoveries - ten comets and 23 nebulae - as well as his good habits 'I am perfectly temperate, neither smoke, chew, nor use intoxicating drinks.'). Barnard, 'the man who was never known to sleep', was well known as an inexhaustible observer of the heavens when he became the subject of an elaborate hoax.
Mali reached its apex about 1330, at which time it extended from the Atlantic Ocean to the cities of Timbuktu and Gao on the Niger River. Because of its control of gold fields in West Africa, Mali became very wealthy. One of its kings (Mansu Musa) made a celebrated pilgrimage to Mecca in 1324, impressing the countries he passed through with his enormous wealth. He patronized learning, and by importing Moslem scholars made Timbuktu and Gao centers of Moslem scholarship. Later, Mali declined, and it collapsed about 1550.
Charles was also interested in promoting education, scholarship, and literature, and the period of his reign is sometimes called the Carolingian Renaissance. He died in 814 ad, and by 843 his empire had been divided into three separate states. One of those states ultimately became France another included much of modern Germany the third was centered in northern Italy. (At times, the last two were united under German rule.)
The young Jesuit Order had been founded in Paris by the Spanish nobleman, Ignatius Loyola. With a background in the army and higher education, Loyola built up within a few years an effective, elitist organisation that greatly emphasised teaching and scholarship, and which became the pope's strongest weapon against Luther's doctrines. Not least, the Jesuits achieved startling results in their missionary work, both in Asia and South America.
The Dominicans - commonly known as God's dogs , Domini canes -were, together with the Jesuits, the Church's front-line soldiers in the war against heresy. The formal leadership of the Inquisition rested with them. Just like the Jesuits, the order placed great emphasis on scholarship, but it was more orientated towards philosophy and theology than natural science. The Dominicans were highly sceptical of the rapid growth of the Jesuit order. There was much rivalry between the two organisations, although few would have gone so far as the Dominican who announced that he crossed himself each time he met a Jesuit The fact that Galileo was still, apparently, in favour with the Jesuits, would not necessarily make him less suspect in the eyes of the Dominicans - possibly quite the opposite.
Throughout this book, we have demonstrated the significant accomplishments and new knowledge in giant panda biology that have occurred in a few short years. These have been driven, in part, by scientific curiosity and available resources, mostly provided by zoos. Beyond the scholarship have been the tangibles, including a growing and healthier ex situ panda population. Most important has been the open sharing of information and expertise always directed towards the highest priority of Chinese authorities - in-country conservation capacity. In short, it is impossible to do too much training. While we may have a dream of training ourselves 'right out of a job', this is not achievable because the magnitude of the need in all regions (not just China) is too great. Thus a high priority is determining how to develop capacity-building programmes that are bigger, stronger and financially self-sustaining.
I can imagine young Sasquatches doing very well in a school especially designed for them. If a chimp brought up and taught by humans can acquire a certain vocabulary, I wonder what heights of scholarship can be attained by an aspiring young Sasquatch under human tutorship. If a human child brought up by animals becomes an animal, I wonder what will become of a homi child brought up by humans.
An autobiographical appendix notes on what drove me to physics, and then to leave for a different career. I came to physics from a family with no particular interests or talents in things scientific. From an early age, I had a knack and interest in things mechanical and quantitative. I entered Yale as an undergraduate with many interests. Before my senior year, I had taken no physics at Yale beyond a noncalculus introductory course. (I did sit through several graduate courses at Heidelberg during my junior year on an exchange scholarship.) My first job out of Yale (nuclear reactor design at Westinghouse) and my graduate work in experimental nuclear physics back at Yale were both interesting and rewarding. But I've also played the French horn all my life. My motivation for physics was at least partly to understand the physics of that treacherous instrument, so that I might improve my skills as a performer. This, however, was not a fashionable area of physics research, and gravitation...
Although Viktor had a small scholarship, it was inadequate even living alone. He studied during the day and unloaded trains at the railway station at night. However, he was one of the best students in his class. His friends said that he did not need to spend much time preparing for an exam he would simply attend it and gain a pass He became a member of the Institute's Scientific Society, and each year he would attend the science and technique conference. He presented at least one paper on the design of radio-technical apparatus.
Selves as objective historical scholars, the mailing condemned Carto for changing the direction of IHR and its journal from serious, nonpartisan revisionist scholarship, reporting, and commentary to one of ranting, racialist-populist pamphleteering (Marcellus 1994). Weber is extremely bright and very personable, and one could believe that he might be capable of good historical scholarship if he ended his fixation on Jews and the Holocaust. He knows history and current politics and is a formidable debater on any number of subjects. Unfortunately, one of these subjects is Jews, whom he continues to generalize into a unified whole and to fear as a unified threat to American and world culture. Weber cannot seem to discriminate between individual Jews, whose actions he may like or dislike, and the Jews, whose supposed actions he generally dislikes, and he cannot seem to grasp the innate complexity of contemporary culture.
Clyde Tbmbaugh took leave from the Lowell Observatory each school year beginning in the fall of 1932 to formally study astronomy at the University of Kansas on a scholarship. He entered as a 26-year-old freshman and tried to enroll in the freshman astronomy class. But the head of the department was adamant For a planet discoverer to enroll in a course of introductory astronomy is unthinkable. '
The fact that Ashkenazi Jews have high IQs on average and corresponding high academic ability has long been known. In 1900 in London, Jews took a disproportionate number of academic prizes and scholarships in spite of their poverty.33 In the 1920s, a survey of IQ_scores in three London schools with mixed Jewish and non-Jewish student bodies one prosperous, one poor, and one very poor showed that Jewish students, on average, had higher IQs than their schoolmates in each of the groups. The differences between Jews and non-Jews were all slightly less than one standard deviation, and the students at the poorest Jewish school in London had IQscores equal to the overall city mean of non-Jewish children.34
At the age of 18, Airy was off to Cambridge University with a scholarship and a very high opinion of himself. He made no friends, and professors judged his abilities to be limited, but Airy worked doggedly and carried off the two big science and mathematics prizes as senior wrangler and First Smith's prizeman in 1823. He thought well enough of himself by this time to write his first autobiography.

Like every serious scholar, I am deeply indebted to others whose ideas I have adopted and whose painstaking research I have made use of. Several of the central ideas presented in this book have already been presented by Richard Lynn, and his books and articles have been invaluable to me. I would also like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Dr. J. Philippe Rushton, partly because his own research has helped me so much in this project, and partly because of the encouragement he has given me. Most of all, I would like to thank Professor Arthur Jensen, in part for his extensive research concerning human intelligence, and even more because his example of careful scholarship and personal courage has been an inspiration to me.
Criminal charges were laid against the Larsons and Peter Larson was eventually sentenced, quite harshly in view of the charges, to two years for retaining (buying) fossils valued at less than US 100 taken by a third party from Gallatin National Park, plus two counts of customs violations with respect to taking money out of the country. He had been convicted of only two counts out of 33 felony charges. The US government had spent millions of dollars on the case, but the Larsons were acquitted of the main charge, that of being involved in a conspiracy to steal fossils from public lands. The jury had not seen them, or their institute, as being in any way fraudulent. (I first met Peter Larson and his brother Neil at the inaugural Dinofest Conference in Indianapolis in 1994, and was impressed by the level of scholarship Peter exhibited in his presentation on the anatomy of the new Tyrannosaurus skeleton. Many of the other palaeontologists also commented upon his good work. He had...
