Subject examines the status of working women under a variety of governmental policies and labor conditions. First part is a survey of key debates on sex and gender differences in employment and wages. Using the changing structure of the US labor force as an example, second part examines attempted policy responses to
Science Bulletins: Lake Mead: Empty by 2012?
Scientists from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography have analyzed the current and predicted "water budget"—the amount of water going in and coming out—of Lakes Mead and Powell, critical reservoirs along the Colorado River. Much of the urban population in the southwest as well as California's most productive agricultural areas depend on water from the Colorado River. Increased temperatures from global warming are decreasing rain and snowfall and are increasing evaporation in the Colora

Science Bulletins: New Gene Implicated in Deafness
It is thought that mutations in several hundred genes can cause hereditary hearing loss. By generating random mutations in mice, a team of researchers led by Ulrich Müller at the Scripps Research Institute discovered that a single mutation in a gene not previously linked to deafness can lead to progressive hearing loss in children.
La Boda - Goya
Descripción escrita por Arte Historia.
La Boda se considera uno de los últimos cartones para tapiz pintados por Goya. En esta escena, el pintor recoge el matrimonio desigual y de conveniencia que tanto criticaban los ilustrados. Estos matrimonios permitían que el novio, feo y viejo pero muy rico, se casase con una muchacha por lo general bella, aunque pobre, quedando así ambos satisfechos, cuando menos la familia de la novia.

For him, purity comes not from avoiding guilt, dirt, or shame but from receiving forgiveness and healing. Our gospel from Mark 5 describes two women facing ritual impurities of death and menstru
Science Bulletins: Duplicate Genes Set Primates Apart
Duplicate genes are becoming a powerful tool to investigate what makes us human. Sometimes one chromosome will acquire more than one copy of a particular gene during cell division and other genetic processes. Over many generations, gene duplications—also called copy-number variants—can accumulate in the DNA of a species. Now that the genomes of humans and other primates have been sequenced, scientists can spot, count, and compare gene duplications among primates and explore how copy-number
Science Bulletins: Scientists Pinpoint Genetic Link to Asthma
For several decades, researchers have been collecting medical and genetic data on the Hutterites, a rural communal population that lives in small communities in the north-central United States and central Canada. Because the isolated Hutterite communities have uniform environmental and lifestyle conditions, the data are enabling researchers to isolate the genetic contributors of disease. A team led by Carole Ober of the University of Chicago recently found distinct genetic mutations that increa

Mass murder of Kherson Jews
Vanda Kriger, who was born in 1925 in Kherson and lived there during the war years, describes how in late September 1941 her mother, together with other Jews, was transported from a prison in Kherson to a murder site, where they were shot. She notes the three places where Jews from Kherson and prisoners of war were executed and buried in mass graves in Kherson and surrounding areas.

Endocrine / Reproduction
This sequence provides the information and opportunities necessary for students to acquire integrated knowledge of the structure and function of the endocrine and reproductive systems in humans. Although all of the biological systems are clearly interrelated, the endocrine and reproductive systems are intimately linked. Much of what you learn about hormonal control and steroid biochemistry of the endocrine system will be referred to and used in teaching reproductive physiology.
