'Charting the Course'
is an education
that encourages
more whole brain
the reliance
which brings
thinkers, in a
closed, holistic
learning network.

people along the
autism spectrum are
naturally more
while "neurotypical"
people, tend to, from a young age, become dominant
thinkers, with the exception that both
access interhemispheric, and graduated, thought.

The 'Charting the Course' education proposal
shares a vision for a school system that will help all character-types, including people who are dominant left-brained thinkers, who think more linearly, and who are dominant right-brained thinkers, who think more by association, in part by bringing them together into one classroom.

The proposal is also for a single, closed, holistic system, which interweaves the modern education system with holistic, closed systems of the world.

The National Commission on Forensic Science
By Yasha Husain
February 19, 2013

In today's fast-paced world, we shouldn't let science seemingly run ahead of us and we as citizens not understand its laws. What does this say for forensic science and the new National Commission on Forensic Science? It suggests that in the United States we should remain abreast of even this cutting edge commission, ensuring the work of the agency is as forthright and commendable as the work of any other agency that provides services for the citizenry.

In that case, when you look up forensics on Wikipedia, interestingly what you come across first is the famous Eureka! story of the scientist, Archimedes, of Syracuse. That story is noted as an early development of forensics science:

The most widely known anecdote about Archimedes tells of how he invented a method for determining the volume of an object with an irregular shape. According to Vitruvius, a votive crown for a temple had been made for King Hiero II, who had supplied the pure gold to be used, and Archimedes was asked to determine whether some silver had been substituted by the dishonest goldsmith. Archimedes had to solve the problem without damaging the crown, so he could not melt it down into a regularly shaped body in order to calculate its density. While taking a bath, he noticed that the level of the water in the tub rose as he got in, and realized that this effect could be used to determine the volume of the crown. For practical purposes water is incompressible, so the submerged crown would displace an amount of water equal to its own volume. By dividing the mass of the crown by the volume of water displaced, the density of the crown could be obtained. This density would be lower than that of gold if cheaper and less dense metals had been added. Archimedes then took to the streets naked, so excited by his discovery that he had forgotten to dress, crying “Eureka!” (Greek: "εὕρηκα!," meaning "I have found it!"). The test was conducted successfully, proving that silver had indeed been mixed in.

Forensics, or forensic science, is the collection of legal evidence by way of the sciences for analysis of relatable crimes. It uses calibration to apply what it calls “metrology,” or measurement, according to Wikipedia, to “measurement equipment and processes to ensure conformity with a known standard of measurement, usually traceable to a national standards board.”

But are the current standards up to par?

The Wikipedia page for metrology goes on to state, "Applied, technical or industrial metrology," “concerns the application of measurement science to manufacturing and other processes and “their use in society,” ensuring the suitability of measurement instruments, their calibration and quality control of measurements.”

Based on a brief look at forensics science metrology, three areas of forensics, at least, 'forensic chemistry,' 'forensic astronomy' and 'trace evidence,' ought to include, I'd say, the potential of all current and futuristic sciences to be present at crime scenes and with the foresight that they might be used for both crimes and crime solving, such as the tiny atoms and metals of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, for example, might become affected or “moved” not only by direct human tampering, but by such minimalist forces in the universe, vibrations or movements in the air, and via the fluidity of the body, now having achieved a science that combines chemistry with physics (or astronomical knowledge), but that would, too, extend to biology.

Forensic pathology, which is medicine and pathology being applied to determine cause of death or injury, and for legal means, in this case, would logically work in tandem with chemistry and physics to avoid potential for human injury and assault.

Whether beginning with the study of metals displacement that Archimedes arrived at, or looking at the potential for atoms and metals displacement by way of nanotechnology today, citizens should, in addition to the scientists, be abreast of the sciences and the new National Commission of Forensic Science, to see that the work done at this level is thorough, and continually questioned by its citizenry.

The Wikipedia page for metrology states: Metrological traceability “is used to extend measurement from a method that works in one regime to a different method that works in a different regime, by calibrating the two using an overlapping range where both work. An example would be the measurement of the spacing of atomic planes in the same crystal specimen using both X-rays and an electron beam. Traceability also refers to the methodology used to calibrate various instruments by relating them back to a primary standard.”

But, then, there are the talked about errors in measurement-making. Some basic means of measuring for exactness might include: “Measurement of an accepted constant under qualifying conditions.” Secondly, “self-checking ratio metric measurements, such as a potentiometer: the ratio in between steps is independently adjusted and verified to be beyond influential inexactness.”

These might just be the means by which we increasingly understand the role of nanotechnology as it affects crime.

Forensic DNA analysis, meanwhile, coming into question in numerous criminal cases, should continue to be handled with care. According to, “The careful handling, labeling and isolation of the evidence may be time consuming, but has become an increasingly important process, especially for Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) analysis. DNA analysis can be ruined or become inaccurate if the DNA sample becomes contaminated, hence the need for responsible handling.”

Americans should be aware of the differentiations for exactness and inexactness in forensics science.

There are also the all important forensic interviews and psychological profiling that comprise forensics that too should be combined with the currently separate wings of the field. Meanwhile, the whole science, taken as it should be, as a whole, should be included in the litigation science, which I would argue shouldn't be held apart as a representation of what forensics science describes.
