Note that material in the following "Sub-sites" does not imply that the hosted
individuals agree with my opinions and themes, and visa-versa...
Paul L Vaughan's webpage - Paul did a huge amount of work on astronomical and
Earth process datasets, coming up with unique, insightful, and powerful results,
often leaving the experts in the dust, in my opinion.
He both develops and applies advanced wavelet transforms for the spatio-temporal analysis of complex systems, and applied his own concepts similar to fractional order calculus.
Steven H Yaskell's webpage - Steven has written two key books on climate and
history, which provide very important context for the huge impacts of climate and
the sun's key role, as well as a history of science and scientists in this area. But
much more than that, Steven provides wonderful stories about how people, scientists and
non-scientists, have fought to shed light light on the subject in the face of tremendous
opposition from mainstream science and scientists, of how the sun and climate have
impacted on peoples lives, and of the under-appreciated role of women in science.
Steve Wickson's webpage including : "A Galactic Theory of Climate"
- mass extinctions, glaciations etc over the last revised paper 16Oct07, first posted 05Jul07
Neil Howell's webpage almost 400 of approximately 500 oil paintings produced by
the author. first posted 16Mar08
Ongoing & previous [postings, home projects]:
This lists only main themes and is not-so-up-to-date : check "Bill Howell's blog" for many other items.
Bill Howell's "Blog" - A reverse-chronological listing (new items first) of "substantive" items that I post from time-to-time.
Bill Howell's "Hope-to-do-soon" projects - This is a listing of the projects that I would like to do, some active but most wishful thinking for the future.
Bill Howell's videos - This is a collection of the videos I have produced, using my own setups and software.
Bill Howell's "Quips" - A listing of [trivial, random, crazy, poitically-incorrect] thoughts or flat-jokes that have not been worked out in any detail.
Neural Networks - general themes, conferences, my projects & peer reviews and links
Computational Neuro-Genetic Modeling - neural networks and non-gene DNA,
RNA, epigenetics etc
International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN) & BioNorth conference
The Kyoto Premise - promoting all science, but challenging abusive scientists,
on anthropogenic Green-House Gas emissions and climate change
Climate and the sun - astronomy, geology and evolutionary biology as
primary climate drivers
Civilisations and the sun - an old "new" theme on the rise and fall of
civilisations (or is it a new "old" theme?)
Pandemics, health, and the sun - a solar imprint on pandemics and other health
Canadian Solar Forecasting Initiative
– solar models & predictions; math (chaos theory etc); climate change; pipelines,
electric grids, satellites & communications; vector-borne pandemics
and radiation-induced cancers
Charvatova's Solar Inertial Motion (SIM) hypothesis for solar activity
Will we be able to forecast solar activity 3,000 years into the future??
Climate?? The course of human history??
Probably not with what we have at hand, but we can try.
This paper and its supporting files are in a very incomplete, preliminary draft.
However, Figure A.2 in Appendix A is especially interesting, as it suggests at
least a "phase synchronization" between Solar Inertial Motion (SIM) and solar
activity, with the 2,402.2 year Charvatovan "long cycle".
Galactic rays and evolution - the origins of life, the development of the mind,
civilisation, economics, financial markets
Crazy themes and stories:

This is just a dumping ground for miscellaneous stuff. Click to go to web-page with a directory listing.
Unsponsored links (a few personal reference points):
- QNial prototyping language. Beautiful child of a marriage between the
LISP and APL programming languages.
- International Neural Network Society (INNS) - theoretical and
computational understanding of the brain, and applied to machines
- MyTax - Canadian Personal Tax spreadsheets - Peel Technologies. Simple, fast, powerful, cheap
- I've been using this for years (since 2016 - no longer available, and I miss it!)
- National Post newspaper - This used to be Canada's only major media capable of challenging political correctness of all types (sometimes including its own). But it has been muted, and even the web blogs are being pushed to extinction in Canada, land of political correctness.
26Sep2017 - created separate section for "Bill Howell's videos", to make it easy to find my video productions
26Nov2014 - revamped "Hope-to-do-soon" project list, tidied up a tiny bit (not enough!)
25Sep2013 I removed most of the "New Material" listing into a separate web-page, and added a list of "hope-to-do-soon" projects
Oops - missed a whole pile of changes from 16Mar2008 to 25Sep2013!
16Mar08 added Neil Howell webpage, with paintings
23Dec07 new contact information, moved from Calgary to Ottawa
24Oct07, 29Aug07, 27Jan07, 08Dec06, 05Oct06, ...missing dates of many interim updates...,
