قال تعالى:

 

" يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ (27) ارْجِعِي إِلَى رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَرْضِيَّةً (28) فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي (29) وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي (30) "

سورة الفجر

 

تنعي الأكاديمية السودانية الوطنية للعلوم , عضوها الدكتور الشيخ محمد الشيخ , الذي وافتهُ المنية صبيحة يوم الثلاثاء الموافق 13 فبراير 2018 .. تغمده الله بواسع رحمته و جعل علمه و عمله كفارة له بإذن الله.

 

" وَ بَشِّرِ الصَّابِرِينَ الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُم مُّصِيبَةٌ قَالُواْ إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَ إِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ"

Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Climate Change in Africa

 

 

Newly published book on "Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Climate Change in Africa"

 

 

Climate change and its impacts on smallholder farmers have become increasingly topical issue in policy debates and development agenda, especially in Africa where farming in mainly rainfed. Over several generations, farmers have developed some indigenous knowledge in response to climatic uncertainties.  What different IK practices are still used by smallholder farmers to manage climate change?  To what extent is IK actions still relevant in contemporary situations, taking into account population growth and climate change? What can we learn from farmers as they continuously contend with the impact of climate change?

A newly published book, Mafongoya, P.L. and Ajayi, O.C. (editors), 2017, Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Climate Change Management in Africa, published by CTA provides insights to these and other questions.

 

 

The book, officially launched last month at the 4th Global Climate-Smart Agriculture Science Conference in South Africa is open access and available for download online on:

The new physics revolution Book

 

 

The book "The new physics revolution"  has been published by (www.lap-publishing.com), Germany.

 

By Prof. Elsheikh

Abstract:

The new physics revolution concerns the physics of life that explains why living systems are self-organizing, self-evolving, intelligently designed and purposeful? It is about the life-organizing principle which generates bio-intelligence, unifies ontogeny and phylogeny, bridges the gap between ordinary physics and biology, and admits limiting transition to linear reversible quantum mechanics. To accomplish these results I have adopted and substantiated:

 

[1] Schrödinger’s view that the new physics of life is nothing else than the principle of

quantum theory over again.

[2] Bohr’s view that the distinction between living and nonliving systems is fundamental and a manifestation of his principle of complementarity.

[3] Elsasser’s view that any substantial conceptual innovation occurring in the passage

from theoretical physics to theoretical biology must be such that it leaves laws of

quantum mechanics invariant

[4] Barbara and Shapiro experimental findings according to which living systems are

self-organizing and self-evolving.

 The new physics of life substantiates the Extended Evolutionary Synthesis and Natural

Genetic Engineering by revealing the mechanism and natural forces underpinning

their basic assumptions and associated processes, i.e., reciprocal causation and

organism centered perspective.
