4 Forms of discrimination

We have already seen that labour market disadvantage can take various forms. Equally, discrimination in the labour market itself can manifest itself in different guises.

The most obvious form of discrimination involves women being paid less than men for doing the same or a similar job. This is what labour economists call wage discrimination (under wage discrimination an individual is paid less than another individual working at the same job), which has been addressed and formally elimin

Understanding cancer: News from the frontline
This Oxford at Said seminar was dedicated to cancer research. Three researchers from the University of Oxford give insights into recent advances in the field of cancer cell biology, therapy and epidemiology. One in three people develop cancer, and one in five in Europe and North America die of the disease. Although environmental and lifestyle factors, for example smoking or sun exposure, affect the incidence of some cancer types, all human populations and many types of animal suffer from this di

A systematic review of the impact of citizenship education on student learning and achievement
Following a previous research review (Deakin Crick et al 2004) which took as its focus international evidence relating to the provision of citizenship in schools, this review is an in-depth synthesis of thirteen studies which address a range of types of citizenship education and learning processes. While explicitly aware of the complexities of the relationship between one subject and general measures of pupil progress, the authors clearly conclude that the research evidence demonstrates that Cit

Students' experiences of ‘researching’ in different subjects
This resource appeared in November 2006 in Practical Research for Education, the NFER publication for teachers. It is a reprint of a 2005 article from a new Zealand Journal Research Information for Teachers. This study was carried out in New Zealand with Year 11, 12 and 13 students. The aim was to collect student views of their experiences of research (identifying, interpreting and analysing information on their own or in a group) in different subjects and different types of courses.

Observe Precipitation
Water that falls from the sky is called precipitation. As one aspect of weather, precipitation such as rain or snow can affect your daily life. However, it is also a vital step in the water cycle, returning water from the atmosphere back to Earth's surface. In this video you will observe three different types of precipitation — rain, hail, and snow. Sound but no narration. Run time 01:00.

4.4.1 Measures of adiposity

The amount of lipid stored within the body – an individual's adiposity – can be indirectly measured. Body shape (e.g. ‘apple’ or ‘pear’ shapes), waist-to-hip ratio, waist circumference and body mass index (BMI) are all used to classify obesity and being overweight, although BMI is the most common. Everyone should aim to have a body weight within the normal range for their height. Slightly different ranges apply between populations due to different body shapes. It is worth noting t
