I am writing a report on Fusion energy as an assignment. It contributes to a sperate qualification in Physics which is simply a Pass/Fail. Further studies will often not accept students who do not pass this section. In this report, I have briefly looked into the current state of electricity generation, including the emissions from coal power plants, and the mining of coal. I found some excellent sources, but also one that had been deleted from the state. gov website. It was available here. It is still available on archive. org here. Archive. org shows it was removed sometime between 12:45 and 19:54 on the 20th of January 2017.

I'm an undergraduate electrical engineer. I have studied up to 80 percent of a masters in electrical engineering program and have two IEEE published papers. Is there such a thing as a PhD entrance exam that I can take to prove my ability to pass advanced electrical courses and get admitted directly into a PhD in a university in Europe?

I am reviewing a paper for a journal. However, the author list in the submitted pdf file of the paper is different from the author list in the submission website. One of the authors is not appearing in the online submission website. Though, it is possible that some of the conflicts have been ignored (I am not in conflict with any of the authors). Should I recommend the paper to be rejected or just inform the editor about this (or any other solutions)?

I would like to study for a PhD and hopefully become a researcher. There is nothing I can think of that I would like to do with my life more. However, my social and communication abilities are bad. They are bad beyond the point where it could be dismissed as me being a 'quirky professor'. People assume that if you want to go into academia, you want to teach. However, I don't think I could do it. I have Asperger syndrome, so there's a limit to how much I can improve my social skills. No matter how much I try to be 'normal', it doesn't work and it's massively draining, to the extent that I find myself struggling to do basic tasks because I get burnt out.

The sentence I'm thinking about is: Trisomy is an aneuploidy (numerical chromosomal mutation) in which a chromosome is over-represented once. Background: Organisms like human beings have a pair of each type of chromosome; two Chr-1 two Chr-2 ..... two Chr-23; it has a pair of 23 chromosomes. So they are called diploids(2n, n=total types of chromosome, 23 in humans) (di means two). Now, Trisomy is a condition in which a diploid organism happens to have an extra copy of a particular chromosome (2n + 1), i.e. they have three copies of that chromosome and I'm trying to bring out the presence of a single extra copy of chromosome in the definition.
