Buzz Williams on character, hard work and teamwork
Think of the Marquette men's basketball team as a stock. That's what coach Buzz Williams — a numbers lover if there ever was one — does. "We want to be a stock that you want to buy. We don't want to be a stock that you're scared of," he says. Which is exactly why he recruits players who are "great people," who love to work and who have character, which he discussed at the Oct. 19, 2010, CIRCLES event in New York.

THE PUBLIC HEALTH OBSERVATORY HANDBOOK OF HEALTH INEQUALITIES MEASUREMENT
Tackling health inequalities must be a central plank of public policy for any government, so I was honoured to be asked to undertake the review of health inequalities for the Labour Government in 1998.

Mr. Hendon’s recent death occasions a retelling of this most infamous chapter in the history of American medicine. Awareness of T
The Dose Makes the Poison -- Or Does It?
News reports frequently include stories about toxic chemicals in our food, water, and environment. But what does it mean to label a substance either "toxic" or "nontoxic"? Toxicity indicates the degree to which a substance is poisonous to biological organisms, including humans. The traditional way to test toxicity is to count how many laboratory organisms die or suffer impaired health when exposed to various concentrations of a substance. However, in recent years this method of estimating the d
China is a country in superlative transition. Media attention focuses primarily on the economic miracle and burgeoning political power, while the interwoven and critically important story of mass human migration remains a postscript.
