- Man Changes the World

    CALGARY, June 21 /CNW/ - 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

    -   It uses 12 columns instead of 18

    -   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).
