These defects may have accounted for his savantism, a condition first identified by the 19th century British physician John Langdon Down the physician who first described Down's syndrome , and derived from the French word savant, meaning someone of great learning or knowledge. Joseph was the fifth of seven children born to Drs. Acid precipitation is rain or other precipitation that is unusually acidic has a pH below 6. My all time favorite contemporary film. Sulphur dioxides and nitrous oxides are released into the atmosphere … and combine with the water vapour in clouds to produce sulphuric acid, sulphurous acid and nitric acid.
Since then the Thai government claims that rainmaking has been successfully applied throughout Thailand and neighboring countries. The acid will be absorbed by the ground or go into the water table. There were three other writers involved, including Ronald Bass who contributed the final script rewrites and is listed, along with Barry Morrow, in the credits of the movie as cowriter of the screenplay.

During the 1930s the theorized that supercooled water droplets present while ice crystals are released into rain clouds would cause rain. He decided to move the process along by adding a chunk of just to lower the temperature of his experimental chamber.

A third crucial change was the ending. This prize was thereafter reshaped into the International Research Program for Rain Enhancement Science. National Center of Meteorology and Seismology official website. He might surprise me by showing up, but I doubt it.
