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. I hope that the report from the review, “The Independent Enquiry into Inequalities in Health”, has helped to shape the policy direction, and influence the targeting and delivery of services, in tackling inequalities. We have moved a long way in our commitment to tackle health inequalities sinc

Embedding Computer Activities into the Context of Preschools
Computer activities are all too often employed in preschool (and kindergarten) activity rooms with little regard for what is going on beyond the computer.

Providing technical computer training to preschool and kindergarten teachers is often not sufficient to originate activities that embed that context beyond s
NASA KSNN How much is money worth?
Many items have been used as money throughout the world. Cattle, cowry shells, feathers, salt, ivory, whales' teeth, jewelry, and tools have been used as money for some societies. North American Indians used Wampum, strings of white beads made from clam shells, as money. Eventually, most societies used coins and paper money for trade. It's easy to see that the other forms of money might become cumbersome, although today some societies still use and prefer barter in place of money.
