    is the preferred word processor to be used for CANTEACH especially when graphical issues are considered see below It imports wmf files without the problems that WordPerfect sometimes has in the subsequent printing to pdf Math MathType is a superset of the new equation editor used in WordPerfect and the equation editor used in Word the two most popular document formats MathType installs itself in both these word processors and equations prepared in the subset editors migrate to MathType directly MathType also exports to a variety of formats for the web and can be used standalone for creating equations for insertion into drawing packages etc MathType will be extended to include the emerging web standard for math MATHML so the growth path is there and the time and effort involved in creating a library of equations is protected Other standard formats exist like Latex but overall MathType is the most mainstream is easy to use can do all that is needed and fits well with the model for this project standard office application tools that we are all familiar with the use of pdf and the use of the web Graphics Graphics are stored either as raster images bmp jpeg tif gif pcx ie pixel by pixel or as Scalable Vector Graphics SVG wmf ai wpg Most applications read and write to these formats Line drawings are best saved and manipulated as vector graphics to reduce file sise and permit scaling without losses Sometimes we only have a raster image and need to turn it into a vector image Wmf seems to be the universal exchange format for vector based images Several drawing packages Adobe Illustrator Flash can vectorize a raster image but results are spotty Best to get the vector source Incorporation into a word processor and the subsequent publication to a pdf file presents a few obstacles Most graphical applications can save to wmf format which can be read by standard word processors Problems have been encountered especially with Word Perfect however when the pdf files are produced diagrams come out blurry even using Adobe Distiller a product specifically designed to counter such translation problems This is probably an WordPerfect internal font issue A number of applications were tested with the following results Visio 2000 this is a standard office product that works well in general but the wmf graphics do not scale properly when the drawing is imported into Word Perfect and resized Gif exports work well but a sufficiently high resolution is needed to avoid the ragged edges Visio now a MicroSoft product interfaces well with Word Corel Draw this package works acceptably well but native Corel Draw graphics in WordPerfect do not translate to pdf well Conversion to wmf is required Adobe Illustrator this is a well established program and a favourite among graphic artists It integrates well with Adobe Acrobat not surprisingly Macromedia Flash is an animation package for the web but it produces excellent results and exports to a variety of formats Imports

    Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change believes that global temperatures could rise by as much as 6 10 degrees over this century We are witnesses to frequent extreme weather events with concomitant loss of life A severe ice storm in Northeastern America in 1998 a windstorm that ravaged much of France s forests last December with 140 000 mature trees uprooted in just two Paris area parks Britain and Italy hit by record rainfall and flooding Global warming means damage to ecosystems and biodiversity Rising sea levels will render uninhabitable the world s low lying seacoasts Tropical diseases will spread There is even serious concern that the Gulf Stream and the larger conveyor belt of ocean currents could come to an abrupt halt plunging Europe into a new ice age even while the rest of the world experiences warmer temperatures If current trends continue this could begin within the lifetime of our children Can we do something to turn around the situation Yes of course we that is the developed industrialized countries of the world can Our populations have stabilized and we are probably rich enough and smart enough to develop clean safe energy technologies that can deliver our current level of material welfare while cutting emissions if we rise to the challenge But there is a major obstacle to success poverty and population growth in the rest of the world According to the United Nations latest projections global population will increase by 50 per cent between now and 2150 Virtually all of that growth will occur outside the OECD area Globalization is paving the way for the emergence of a worldwide middle income class of 4 to 5 billion people with the same aspirations for comfortable homes a range of choice in foods and consumer products and opportunities for education and travel that form the accoutrements of our modern civilization But these all depend on one vital input energy If the rest of the world were to have the current standard of living of the OECD area energy production would have to increase by a factor of 30 No one expects such a jump to happen suddenly but even if increased demand for energy happens gradually how is it to be met Can we actually envisage continuing to burn fossil fuels at the same rate over the next century Recently I had the privilege of talking with two Nobel Prize winning physicists Burton Richter and Carlo Rubbia about the future of nuclear energy At our meeting and in a subsequent speech Dr Richter stated the challenge clearly It is our responsibility he says both on ethical grounds and on grounds of self interest to develop technologies that will allow the rest of the world to increase their standard of living without at the same time destroying the environment of the planet He also expressed what he described as bewilderment at the opposition to nuclear power by the green movement There is of course concern about the health risks associated with
