Science Bulletins: Australia's Coral Growth Slows
Corals, like clams, lobster, and sea urchins, are marine calcifiers—they incorporate dissolved minerals from seawater to grow their hard parts. Calcifiers are considered at risk from our increased introduction of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide in the air increases the temperature of the ocean by ramping up the greenhouse effect, and the absorption of carbon dioxide into the ocean changes its chemistry so that minerals are less available for

Science Bulletins: Light Pollution—Beyond the Glare
Scientists have long understood that artificial light can disrupt wildlife that takes cues from natural light. It's becoming increasingly clear that light reflected off shiny artificial surfaces such as cars, buildings, and roads can also disrupt animal behavior—sometimes fatally. A new review of research on light pollution by a team of Hungarian and American scientists describes a new concern with polarized light pollution. When light bounces off reflective surfaces, it can become polarized,

Social work is about working with people, as service users and as colleagues, and you are also one of the people in this process. I hope that working through the module and listening to the audio clips have prompted you to reflect on your practice.

You will find that many of the themes and issues you have exp

6.3 What size of majority vote should decide the issue?

In many types of democratic vote, a bare majority (technically, 50 per cent +1) is enough to decide outcomes. But often constitutional changes – changes which would affect the basic structures or political rules of the game – are regarded as needing ‘supermajorities’ of, say, 60 or 70 per cent. A basic change in the sovereign political unit would certainly count as a constitutional change. If the Bs get to vote, we might be concerned if only a bare majority favoured secession, es
