Rising body mass index increases heart risk
Research at the Australian National University has found increased body mass index significantly increases the risk of heart disease - regardless of exercise level, smoking status and whether or not someone has diabetes. Over 158,000 Australian participants of the Sax Institute's 45 and Up Study with no history of cardiovascular disease were tracked over four years to see how incremental increases in body mass index (BMI) increased their risk of going to hospital for a range of cardiovascular

The Siege and Battle of Corinth: A New Kind of War
tells the story of two Civil War engagements near Corinth, a small Mississippi town established in the 1850s where two railroads crossed. On October 2, 1862, Confederates attacked Union forces that occupied the town and that had built extensive entrenchments and earthworks (which are featured at this website). By nightfall the next day, 2,360 Union and 4,848 Confederate men were dead or wounded.
The Battle of Oriskany: Blood Shed a Stream Running Down
tells how long-standing prejudices and the Revolutionary War unleashed massive bloodshed among inhabitants of New York's Mohawk Valley. Located in rich farmland and at a strategic point in a fur trade route, the valley had been settled by European immigrants who had prospered from productive farms and lucrative trade. As war broke out, everyone had to choose sides: Rebel or Tory. It was not easy for many. Five hundred years of unity among the Six Nations was broken.
Wildlife Management Activity Guide for Teachers
Whether your school has a 40 acre school forest or a 40 square foot school yard lawn, we urge you to get your students involved in some hands-on wildlife management. It is a relevant real world issue that will also expose them to disciplines other than science as they learn all the complexities of land management. A few teachers are teaching about a variety of game species and habitats. Others are developing small native plant gardens which provide basic needs for native butterflies and birds. P

Quality nutrition through pigeonpea - a review
Title: Quality nutrition through pigeonpea - a review Authors: Saxena, K.B.; Kumar, R.V.; Sultana, R. Abstract: Protein mal-nutrition is widespread among poor of developing and under developed countries. Since animal protein is beyond the reach of this group, their primary protein supply comes from plant based products. Amongst these, pigeon-pea or red gram (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millspaugh) is an important food legume that can be grown under rainfed conditions with least inputs. Pi-geonpea is rich

Typical points, invariant measures, and dimension for rational maps on the Riemann sphere
We present three original results for the dynamics of rational maps on the Riemann sphere. Using methods from dimension and ergodic theory, we discuss generalized physical measures and prove their existence for hyperbolic and some parabolic rational maps. This shows that there are sets of typical points for these maps having maximal dimension. We then show that for any NCP rational map, the set of non-typical, or divergence, points is also of maximal dimension. Finally, we examine holomorphic fa
Closing the economic achievement gap: a case study of a successful Kansas secondary school
In spite of efforts at the federal, state, and local levels, the achievement gap has persisted over time. Recent NCLB legislation has brought renewed attention to the achievement gap, forcing schools to address it. Despite the daunting task of mediating the impact of poverty, some schools have made substantial progress in narrowing the achievement gap with low-income students. This qualitative case study of one successful Kansas public secondary school has concluded the caring actions of teacher
