RotaPeriod.com - Man Changes the World

Jun 21, 2007, 01:00 ET from RotaPeriod.com

    CALGARY, June 21 /PRNewswire/ - A lot of amazing things are happening
 in science. This story is about one man re-inventing the periodic table so
 that it is easy to understand. Imagine that!
     The fact that someone would dare change the periodic table suggests
 more great things are about to happen in the world of science. It is
 revolutionary because its radical new design tears down the current ideas
 and starts again from scratch.
     You can decide for yourself if this man has made the periodic table
 easy to understand - simply go to http://www.rotaperiod.com
     Highlights:
 
     -   It uses 12 columns instead of 18
 
     -   It re-draws the line between metals and non-metals
 
     -   It emphasizes the strength of the 4+ elements (temperature, organic
         chemistry)
 
     -   It does not classify the 5+, 6+, 7+, 8+ metals
         into groups V, VI, VII, and VIII (or IUPAC 5, 6, 7, 8)
 
     -   It uses the vertical and horizontal of the page to displace elements
         in a new way
 
     -   It incorporates the Lanthanide and Actinide Series elements
     It is called the Rota Period (or Rota's Period) and makes Chemistry
 easier to understand because it is based upon showing valence/oxidation
 (which determine how elements combine).
