The Earth effects show significant dependences on the neutrino path length inside the Earth and the value of ... More

Paradox of integration -- Dynamics of two-dimensional statusMar 11 2019According to Peter M. Blau [Exchange and Power in Social Life, Wiley and Sons, p. 43], the process of integration of a newly formed group has a paradoxical aspect: most attractive individuals are rejected because they raise fear of rejection. Often, their ... More
