2.1 Finding and extracting coal

Coal is often regarded as the principal fossil fuel, and with good reason. There is almost three times more energy available from the global proven coal reserves as there is from proven oil and gas reserves taken together. Therefore, it is unsurprising that even today much time and effort is spent locating it.

This section considers the techniques used in coal exploration and how coal is produced from surface and underground mines. But first, a brief look at a few of the historical aspe

However, cancer is a heterogeneous condition and recent evidence suggests that, although high levels of psychological distress a

Professor Yau Shing-Tung gives this lecture entitled 'The shape of inner space: String theory & the geometry of the universes' hidden dimensions' at The Australian National University on 24 November 2010. String theory says we live in a ten-dimensional universe, but that only four are accessible to our everyday senses. According to theorists, the missing six are curled up in bizarre structures known as Calabi-Yau manifolds. The discoverer of these manifolds, Professor Yau Shing-Tung, will descr

Matthew Gray - Middle East Conspiracy Theories: Scenes from the sandy knoll
Conspiracy theories are common in the Middle East, and cover a range of topics from US policy to 9/11, Israel's Mossad and even the death of Princess Diana. Foreign powers, local leaders, and societal actors all feature in them. Where do these conspiracy theories come from, and what do they mean? In this lecture Dr Matthew Gray examines this question by looking at several of the region's most prevalent conspiracy theories and addressing what each says about the region's politics, social dynamics

3.6 Summary

Three explanations of poverty developed by social scientists have been considered. The first sees poverty as natural or inevitable, the second focuses on the behaviour of poor people, while the third analyses poverty as the result of economic or political processes. Considering these explanations makes it possible to draw some conclusions about the social science approach to social problems:

23 Are men bad for women's mental health
Feelings ran high at this debate touching on gender issues within psychiatric services. The audience started the evening strongly behind the motion supporting gender-segregated in-patient services but with a number of voters waiting to be persuaded. The proposers of the motion centred their arguments on issues of women’s safety and were opposed by a counter-attack emphasising the importance of patient choice. We heard several women service users give heartfelt testimony to their experience of
