Harvard helps bring science and social action to Mexico’s Lake Chapala
A few years ago reports arose about suspected contamination of fish in Lake Chapala, the largest lake in Mexico and a breadbasket for those who rely on its fish for protein. Harvard and public health allies in Mexico established Proyecto Chapala, studied at-risk pregnant mothers and their toddlers, assessed the fish (verdict: they are largely safe to eat), drew up a list of future environmental health studies, and expanded the project to empower and educate local children and their mothers.

3.1 Skimming

Did you read the Layard article quickly enough, or perhaps too quickly? Reading speed is a persistent worry when you study. There always seems to be much more to read than you have time for, so you feel a tremendous pressure to read faster. But then, if you go too fast, you don't learn much. So what is the ‘right’ speed? The answer is – it depends on what you are trying to achieve.

It's surprising how much you can pick up if you push on quickly through a few pages.
