Science Bulletins: Decoding the DNA of Extinct Species
Caves were important refuges for humans and animals that coexisted during the late Pleistocene, the epoch of ice ages that ended 10,000 years ago. These sheltered environments can preserve evidence of extinct biological communities that archaeologists, paleontologists, and geneticists can mine for clues the species' biology, behavior, and evolution. Recently, exceptionally well-preserved bones from European caves have yielded DNA for two Ice Age species, Neanderthals and cave bears. The teams-on

19. Economic Motivations for Fertility
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) Data shows, consistently, that poor people have more children than rich people; economically speaking, children are an inferior good. Children are production goods because they do work, consumption goods because they are enjoyable, and investment goods because they support parents in old age. Jobs in the modern sector require education and health. To pay for this, parents have to focus their resources on fewer children. Complete course materials
7. Demographic Transition in Europe; Mortality Decline
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) European population grew only slowly during the period 1200-1700; factors include disease and wars. Human feces and rotting animal remains were not sequestered and often contaminated drinking water. Cities were so filthy that more people died in them than were born. About a third of children died in infancy, many from abandonment and lack of care during wet-nursing. Children that survived were subjected to harsh discipline to control their tendenc
Where next for public health in the era of austerity?

Erythemal Index for August 2000 through July 2001: Zoom to North America
The Erythemal Index is a measure of ultraviolet radiation (UV) at ground level on the Earth. UV exists to the left of the visible spectrum and is divided into three components (UV-A, UV-B and UV-C). UV-B (290-320 wavelengths) is the most dangerous form of UV radiation that can reach ground level. Atmospheric ozone shields life at the surface from most of the harmful components of solar radiation. Chemical processes in the atmosphere can effect the level of protection provided by the ozone in the

Selecting what to identify and extract will start the process off. Summarizing the arguments continues this process and, crucially, gets you started on reproducing ideas in your own words. The next stage is to develop your notes further by thinking more consciously about the material you have read and the points you

7 Unofficial work cultures
In this unit, we are going to look at a number of situations which put a strain on the idea that caring is just 'being ordinary', including times when people are giving intimate care. In these special circumstances, since the normal rules do not apply, we have to develop a set of special rules to guide practice.
