Summary

1 The visible matter in the Universe, stars and interstellar gas, is concentrated into galaxies, which are collections of ~1011 stars. The galaxies themselves are usually to be found in clusters with typically tens or hundreds of members. The clusters, in their turn, are loosely associated in superclusters.

2 Distances are estimated via a series of intercalibrated techniques, each overlapping with and extending further than the previous one. The principal stages are:

2 Growth and development: the big picture

The scale of the problem facing the human zygote is vast. The zygote, the single cell resulting from the fusion of a sperm and an ovum, is about the size of a full stop on a nomal printed page, yet within 9 months it has become a 3 kg, 50 cm long baby. The single cell has made millions of other cells; 1011 (i.e. 100 000 000 000) neurons in the brain alone. Not only is there this vast and rapid increase in the number of cells (some calculations put the peak figure at 250 000 new

1 Welfare, work and social policy: an overview

On 29 February 2000, a 6-year-old boy in his first year at Buell School, Beecher, in the town of Flint, Michigan, in the USA, took a .32 calibre handgun to school and shot 6-year-old Michaela Roland dead with a single bullet. The boy had been staying with his uncle because his mother, Tamarla Owens, had been evicted from her home for lapsing on her rent payments, despite working up to 70 hours a week in two jobs to maintain her two children. Tamarla Owens was not there that morning to see her

1.3 Summary

This section briefly discussed the public awareness of computers and how quickly this has developed from a situation where computers hardly impacted on most people to one where they are involved in virtually every facet of modern life. As an illustration, you examined the contents of your wallet to determine how much data about you (your persona) might be kept by a variety of organisations. This sets the scene for developing an understanding of how this affects you as an individual in modern

4.1 Uniting the developing countries

Several attempts have been made to form a united front of developing countries to negotiate a better deal at the WTO. They have met with little success because there are substantial conflicts of interest between them, for example between agricultural importers and exporters, and between small countries and those larger developing countries that have been able individually to use the lure of opening their markets to get a better deal from developed countries. Conflicts of interest arise too be

Look at the Moon even with the unaided eye, and you will see that it has dark patches on a paler background (Figure 2). This simple observation picks out the two distinct types of crust on the Moon. The paler areas are the lunar highlands, and the darker areas are the lunar 'seas' or maria (singular: mare). Both the highlands an

2.3.3 Geometrical isomerism

A second type of isomerism occurs with diene monomers, and is present in both NR and butadiene rubbers (BR). It occurs because the single double bond in the final polymer can exist in two ways: a cis form and a trans form. The repeat unit shown in Table 3 for NR does less than justice to the two-di

2.5 Behavioural strategies of endurers

Endurers are defined as large desert mammals such as oryx and camel, and large desert birds, ostrich and emu. The term ‘endurers’ suggests that these animals are forced to endure the extreme conditions of the desert climate because they cannot shelter from high T a and intense solar radiation during the day or low T a at night, as they are too large to hide in burrows or dens. Nevertheless, in spite of their size, endurers do take advantage of aspects o

5.2 What's in a phase?

In an engineering and scientific context, a phase is an arrangement of atoms that is identifiable through its recurrence – the same pattern is found time and again. For instance, the compound of hydrogen and oxygen that we call water turns up all over the place in the same form as a runny, colourless liquid; this is a specific phase of the compound H2O. In water, the atoms apparently organise themselves according to what they are and the ambient conditions of temperature a
