Thomas G. Andrews, KILLING FOR COAL: America's Deadliest Labor War
"'Killing for Coal' is a stunning achievement. Beautifully written and masterfully researched, it stands as the definitive history of the dramatic events at Ludlow and breaks new ground in our understanding of industrialization and the environment. If I were to pick one word to describe this book, I would say, 'powerful.'" -Kathryn Morse, author of "The Nature of Gold: An Environmental History of the Klondike Gold Rush" For more on the award-winning Killing for Coal, visit http://www.hup.harva

3.5 A new life

There is a common belief that life begins at the moment of conception, i.e. when a sperm fuses with an egg. This is a step forward from past years, when life was alleged to start at the time of ‘quickening’, i.e. when a woman could feel her fetus moving inside her. However, both these opinions suffer from an underlying falsehood: that life ‘begins’ at all. Life is a continuum; gametes are produced by living parents, and fuse to produce new living individuals, but unfused gametes are n

Making Recycled Paper
Recent Environmental Protection Agency studies have shown that 0.9 metric tons (one ton) of recycled paper saves 17 trees, 26,500 liters (7000 gallons) of water, 27 kilograms (60 pounds) of pollution, 2.5 cubic meters (3.3 cubic yards) of landfill space, and enough energy to power the average American home for six months. In this video segment adapted from ZOOM, cast members demonstrate how something that might otherwise be discarded, such as newspaper, can be recycled to create a functional or

3.5 Big dams in the future?

Throughout the 20th century, reservoir construction to improve water resources was considered a key component of development. It was undertaken universally by industrialized nations, and by the later 20th century, increasingly by developing nations, building bigger and bigger dams. More recently the debate over the environmental impact of big dams and their questionable cost-benefit analysis has been universally recognized. In the 1990s the Narmada scheme caused the World Bank to rethink its

Reactive oxygen species

The metabolism that occurs in every cell and is associated with the basic requirements of physiology inevitably leads to the production of reactive intermediates, many of which are capable of reacting with DNA or free dNTPs, which could subsequently be incorporated during synthesis. One particular group of such molecules are called reactive oxygen species (ROS). The essential feature of ROS is the presence of an unpaired electron on an oxygen atom in the molecule, which enables the ROS to rea
