Chapter 1 of this book is open access under a CC BY license.This is a chapter from Absence in Science, Security and Policy edited by Brian Rappert and Brian Balmer. This chapter is available open access under a CC BY license. Part reflection on the forthcoming chapters, part analysis of academic literature, and part programmatic agenda setting, this introduction chapter forwards the importance of questioning taken for granted assumptions in sensing what is absent as a concern. It undertakes this through initially examining what it means to characterize concern as absent or present in the first place. While absence and presence are often treated as binary opposites, it will be argued this distinction is difficult to sustain and unhelp for analysis. On the back of an appreciation of the int...

This paper presents mathematical evidence that the “positron” found in numerous laboratory experiments - is actually a probable version of the muon neutrino, which is ordinary matter, not antimatter. This new evidence is based on the 1024-QAM model as the first Periodic Table for Elementary Particles. There are 16 probable versions of the muon neutrino with one third of the mass of an electron. 4 of these have the same charge-to-mass ratio as a common electron. Another 4 have twice the charge-to-mass as a common electron, but with the opposite charge (+2/3), causing them to move in the opposite direction in a magnetic field. To complicate matters further, note that there are 16 probable versions of an electron, with 4 different charges (0, -1, -1/3, +2/3). A 1024-QAM table was pr...

This book is a compilation of the summer research opportunities for high school students. This book is a result of our own research into available opportunities primarily in the STEM and humanities arena.We have over 175 premier programs nationally and covering about 33 states and Canada. Majority of the programs are either FREE or pay Stipend!. Apart from an excellent compilation of these programs we also offer our first-hand experience on how to successfully prepare and apply to these programs. In some instances we share our personal experience having participated in some of these programs. We took a lot of effort to list programs that are available in summer and year-round. We also included a lot of programs aimed specifically at underrepresented minorities with hope this would increase...
