The Tiger Video Fileserver
The Tiger design and an implementation that runs on a collection of personal computers connected by an ATM switch are described and used for multimedia fileservers and other applications needing constant rate data delivery.

A database compiled from peer-reviewed studies on individual species, macroecological studies of multiple species, existing life-history databases, and other aggregated sources as well as published books and other compilations is created.
Semiaquatic adaptations in a giant predatory dinosaur
Adaptations for a semiaquatic lifestyle in the dinosaur Spinosaurus aegyptiacus are described, including retraction of the fleshy nostrils to a position near the mid-region of the skull and an elongate neck and trunk that shift the center of body mass anterior to the knee joint.
Projections of the pace of warming following an abrupt increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration
The temperature response of atmosphere–ocean climate models is analyzed based on atmospheric CO2 step-function-change simulations submitted to phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project…

Emetolites would offer a valuable fossil record, and thus they warrant consideration by field paleontologists and preparators, and a greater awareness of their probable characteristics may lead us to discover that they are more abundant than has been assumed.
Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking
A revolution is underway in the art of cooking. Just as French Impressionists upended centuries of tradition, Modernist cuisine has in recent years blown through the boundaries of the culinary arts.…
Dinosaur Census Reveals Abundant Tyrannosaurus and Rare Ontogenetic Stages in the Upper Cretaceous Hell Creek Formation (Maastrichtian), Montana, USA
It is proposed that mature individuals of at least some dinosaur taxa either lived in a separate geographic locale analogous to younger individuals inhabiting an upland environment where sedimentation rates were relatively less, or these taxa experienced high mortality before reaching terminal size where late stage and often extreme cranial morphology is expressed.
Greenhouse gases, climate change and the transition from coal to low-carbon electricity
A transition from the global system of coal-based electricity generation to low-greenhouse-gas-emission energy technologies is required to mitigate climate change in the long term. The use of current…
Key factors for assessing climate benefits of natural gas versus coal electricity generation
Assessing potential climate effects of natural gas versus coal electricity generation is complicated by the large number of factors reported in life cycle assessment studies, compounded by the large…
