International Council for Science

The International Council for Science was an international non-governmental organization devoted to international cooperation in the advancement of science. Its members were international scientific unions. In July 2018, the ICSU merged with the International Social Science Council to form the International Science Council. In 2017, the ICSU comprised 122 multi-disciplinary National Scientific Members and Observers representing 142 countries and 31 international, disciplinary Scientific Unions. ICSU had 22 Scientific Associates; the ICSU’s mission was to strengthen international science for the benefit of society. To do this, the ICSU mobilized the knowledge and resources of the international scientific community to: Identify and address major issues of importance to science and society. Facilitate interaction amongst scientists across all disciplines and from all countries. Promote the participation of all scientists — regardless of race, language, political stance, or gender — in the international scientific endeavour.

Provide independent, authoritative advice to stimulate constructive dialogue between the scientific community and governments, civil society, the private sector."Activities focused on three areas: International Research Collaboration, Science for Policy, Universality of Science. In July 2018, the ICSU became the International Science Council; the ICSU itself was one of the oldest non-governmental organizations in the world, representing the evolution and expansion of two earlier bodies known as the International Association of Academies and the International Research Council. In 1998, Members agreed that the Council’s current composition and activities would be better reflected by modifying the name from the International Council of Scientific Unions to the International Council for Science, while its rich history and strong identity would be well served by retaining the existing acronym, ICSU; the ICSU Principle of Universality of Science states: "the free and responsible practice of science is fundamental to scientific advancement and human and environmental well-being.

Such practice, in all its aspects, requires freedom of movement, association and communication for scientists, as well as equitable access to data and other resources for research. It requires responsibility at all levels to carry out and communicate scientific work with integrity, fairness and transparency, recognising its benefits and possible harms. In advocating the free and responsible practice of science, ICSU promotes equitable opportunities for access to science and its benefits, opposes discrimination based on such factors as ethnic origin, citizenship, political or other opinion, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, or age." Adherence to this Principle is a condition of ICSU membership. The Committee on Freedom and Responsibility in the conduct of Science "serves as the guardian of the Principle and undertakes a variety of actions to defend scientific freedoms and promote integrity and responsibility." The ICSU Secretariat in Paris ensured the day-to-day planning and operations under the guidance of an elected Executive Board.

Three Policy Committees − Committee on Scientific Planning and Review, Committee on Freedom and Responsibility in the conduct of Science and Committee on Finance − assisted the Executive Board in its work and a General Assembly of all Members was convened every three years. ICSU has three Regional Offices − Africa and the Pacific as well as Latin America and the Caribbean; the principal source of ICSU's finances was the contributions. Other sources of income are the framework contracts from UNESCO and grants and contracts from United Nations bodies and agencies, which are used to support the scientific activities of the ICSU Unions and interdisciplinary bodies.

1996 San Miguel Beermen season

The 1996 San Miguel Beermen season was the 22nd season of the franchise in the Philippine Basketball Association. On April 1, the San Miguel management decided to trade one-time MVP Renato Agustin, along with rookie pick Mar Morelos to Sunkist in exchange for forward Nelson Asaytono; the next week on April 7, Asaytono played his first game as a Beerman, scoring only nine points in San Miguel's 76-84 loss to Purefoods. In the Commissioners Cup, San Miguel's original choice for an import, Norris Coleman, could not make it on time and the Beermen decided to tapped Agee Ward for their first game against Purefoods. Ward was shipped home by the Beermen after scoring only 12 points in the 87-108 loss to the Hotdogs. In San Miguel's next game against Sta. Lucia in Dagupan City, coach Norman Black decided to come out of a six-year retirement and suited up as their import and the Beermen welcomes the return of Samboy Lim in action. February 18: The Beermen banked on Allan Caidic's two clutch triples to defeat Purefoods Tender Juicy Hotdogs, 80-69, in the opening game of the season.

March 9: San Miguel held down Pepsi Mega to the league's lowest score yet, a record-low 54 points in a 95-54 victory in Dumaguete City for its third win in the All-Filipino Cup. June 30: San Miguel got a taste of victory in the Commissioners Cup, crushing sister team Ginebra San Miguel, 112-91, to snap a four-game losing streak. New Import Andre Spencer, who debut last week and the second import to arrived for the Beermen came away with 24 points. July 14: A stirring 14-0 counter-assault midway through the final period by the Beermen turn a 65-73 deficit into a surprising 89-77 victory over Formula Shell as the Beermen climbed up in a tie with Sunkist and Purefoods with four wins and four losses; the victory was the fourth straight for San Miguel from a dismal 0-4 start. September 29: San Miguel struggled to a 105-104 victory over Mobiline at the start of the Governors Cup. Beermen import Lamont Strothers, who had one-year stints with Portland and Dallas in the NBA and whose PBA campaign took off in the wrong foot when he got involved in an ugly brawl with Mobiline's Jack Tanuan during a pre-tournament game, finished with 45 points and his driving layup with 6.7 seconds left proved to be the decisive basket.

October 6: San Miguel brought down Sta. Lucia, 97-86, to gain a share of second place in the Governors Cup. Lamont Strothers poured in a season-high 56 points. Team Manager: Nazario Avendaño
