Around 2008–2010, when the Large Hadron Collider was commissioned, the claimed dangers included the production of stable micro black holes and the creation of hypothetical particles called strangelets.

In Physics, electromagnetic radiation (EM radiation or EMR) refers to the waves (or their quanta, photons) of the electromagnetic field, propagating through space, carrying electromagnetic radiant energy. It includes radio waves, microwaves, infrared, (visible) light, ultraviolet, X-rays, and gamma rays.
Typical communications applications include wireless systems using RF and microwave, MIMO, wireless LANs, mobile phones, base station monitoring, surveillance, satellite communications, bus testing, cable testing, antenna and transmitter testing.
The Earth's climate system maintains a balance between solar energy absorbed and IR (blackbody) energy radiated to space. The so-called Greenhouse effect distributes the temperature in the atmosphere so that the surface is much warmer than the mean radiative temperature.
Quantum communication takes advantage of the laws of quantum physics to protect data. It is a field of applied quantum physics closely related to quantum information processing and quantum teleportation. Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) describes the use of quantum mechanical effects to perform cryptographic tasks or to break cryptographic systems - creating a secure communication method.

The ENTIRE collection of resources provided by the BBC Library can be searched on ONE single, powerful search platform, which retrieves print books, eBooks, database articles and websites. Click HERE for assistance.
You can see the entire Proquest Ebook Central Catalogue of 500,000 resources by entering your search term in the box above. You may browse any title for 5 minutes, and if it's one we don't already own, it will say 'request this book from your library', which means you can email the Library to ask us to purchase it if you like it, or simply rent it for a day so you can quickly take the notes you need during that day.

1. Use (Control + Find) to search for particular terms easily in a long document, whether from a website or a database article.
2. Use a Boolean command - put to limit and improve your results eg "energy drinks problems".
3. Use to search in Google for only pdf articles - "plastic pollution" filetype:pdf - will force Google to return results on plastic pollution which are pdf articles (PDFs are great sources sometimes deeply buried in Google results and remain unseen).
4. Use a Google command eg OR eg biodiesel site:edu
5. when it is not clear who the author / authority is, go to the end of the URL in the Google search box, cut back to the first forward slash (/) and hit 'Enter'. This will take you to the Home Page of the website, and you can see the full name of the source.
6. Use a Google command After you get your results, choose the Google Menu Bar, and choose 'Tools'. Then on the far left, at the drop-down menu next to 'Any Time', you can choose 'Within the last year' (or less, if you prefer), but generally, you can choose 'Custom Range' at the bottom, as often the last 3 years would be sufficient for a recent search.
From Mrs Allen:
1. START EARLY
a. First 10% - General Reading (This is where your ideas are shaped, read 3-6 sources of VARIETY)
b. 10% - 40/50% - Active Notetaking (This is where you collect & collate evidence & info)
c. 40-50% - 80% - Organisation of Ideas (This is where you construct the structure of your essay, and allocate the number of words for each part).
d. 80% - 100% - Writing (This is where you write the assignment as streamlined as possible)

Google Scholar's searches are set to cover scholarly material more often than 'regular' Google. Google Scholar's searches are set to cover scholarly material more often than 'regular' Google. Read the article below on the advantages an disadvantages of using it.
Google Books can be very frustrating because often much of the book is missing and you are expected to purchase it to read the full content. So after you put in your search term you are interested in (eg biodiesel), and get some results up, you should then go immediately to the (on the left - above 'About this box') and type in a particular word or term you are interested in (eg CO2 emissions OR methanol) you should get a number of pages pop up. Choose one that looks useful - you should get some good results this way!
