But on the 3rd of February, 1866, a new island, which they named George Island, emerged from the midst of the sulphurous vapour near Nea Kamenni, and settled again the 6th of the same month.

Astronomers have found about half the known NEAs in the past five years and discover two or three new ones each month, thanks in part to improved search techniques, more sensitive photographic films, and the use of sensitive electronic light detectors, known as charged-coupled devices.
Last February, after analyzing the properties of several NEAs found by Spacewatch, Rabinowitz announced that his team may have found a new class of asteroid (SN: 2/20/93, p.
In the June 24, 1993 NATURE, Rabinowitz and his colleagues suggest that the unexpectedly large number of small NEAs argues for the existence of another asteroid belt--this one near Earth.
While the authors do raise some compelling criticisms of the NEA and American cultural policy in general-its elitism, its cliquishness, its conservatism-nearly all conclude with a rote paragraph wistfully harking back to the NEA they knew and loved before Congress began obsessing about sex.
To understand the origin of this vested interest, it helps to understand the funding structure of the NEA and the intricate web of arts agencies to which it has given rise.
American Samoa, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Marianas is an arts council that, like the NEA, selects its grantees through "peer review panels" and then requires that those grants be approved by a council of political appointees.
Still concerned that such schools will digest large amounts of public funds that ought to be earmarked for mainstream schools, the NEA nevertheless ``has no basic problem with the use of federal start-up funds.
