Quirino Majorana
QUIRINO MAJORANA (28 October 1871 – 31 July 1957) was an Italian experimental physicist who investigated a wide range of phenomena during his long career as professor of physics at the Universities of Rome , Turin (1916–1921), and Bologna (1921–1934), Italy
Italy
. WORKHe performed a long series of very sensitive gravity shielding experiments from 1918 to 1922, which have never been reproduced. Majorana's experiments determined that mercury or lead around a suspended lead sphere acted as a screen and slightly decreased the Earth's gravitational pull. No attempts have been made to reproduce his results using the same experimental techniques. Other researchers have concluded from other data that if gravitational absorption does exist it must be at least five orders of magnitude smaller than Majorana's experiments suggest

Digital Object Identifier
In computing, a DIGITAL OBJECT IDENTIFIER or DOI is a persistent identifier or handle used to uniquely identify objects, standardized by the International Organization for Standardization
International Organization for Standardization
( ISO
ISO
). An implementation of the Handle System , DOIs are in wide use mainly to identify academic, professional, and government information, such as journal articles, research reports and data sets, and official publications though they also have been used to identify other types of information resources, such as commercial videos. A DOI aims to be "resolvable", usually to some form of access to the information object to which the DOI refers. This is achieved by binding the DOI to metadata about the object, such as a URL , indicating where the object can be found

Il Nuovo Cimento
NUOVO CIMENTO is a series of peer-reviewed scientific journals of physics . The series was first established in 1855, when Carlo Matteucci and Raffaele Piria started publishing Il Nuovo Cimento as the continuation of Il Cimento, which they established in 1844. In 1897, it became the official journal of the Italian Physical Society . Over time, the journal split into several sub-journals: * Nuovo Cimento A (1965–1999): Focused on particle physics . The journal ended when it was merged into the European Physical Journal
European Physical Journal
, in 1999. * Nuovo Cimento B (1965–2010): Focused on relativity , astronomy , and mathematical physics

Philosophy
for Children as an educational methodology in the UK . It is based at the Culham Innovation Centre, Abingdon, England
England
, and its Chair is Elizabeth Jones, QC . Philosophy for Children (P4C) is a powerful intervention which has been found through many research studies to have both cognitive and social impact on children and schools. P4C was launched in the UK by SAPERE in 1992 and now reaches 4,000 new teachers and 60-70,000 children a year in UK. P4C is centred on philosophical enquiry, where a trained teacher encourages children to think and reason as a group. SAPERE's mission is to advance the educational, personal and social development of young people, especially those facing disadvantage, through the promotion of P4C

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)
