1.2.3 The physiological and behavioural levels

Anticipation of winter

If organisms are to survive winter, they must be well prepared for cold weather and sometimes for reduced supply of food. Physiological changes such as shedding leaves and building up fat reserves, and behaviours such as hoarding food, must be completed before winter begins. In order to be prepared, organisms need to anticipate the onset of winter, which is done in two ways, each of which has its own associated physiological mechanisms. First, they could re

2.2 The Convention itself

The ECHR is essentially a charter of rights. Any charter of rights represents a consensus, a negotiated agreement between the drafters. Every state intending to adopt a charter will have its own vision and aims, and the drafters have to find a way of accommodating these visions and aims. This often results in the creation of provisions that are a compromise and are drafted in the widest possible terms. The ECHR is drafted in such a way. It is a vaguely worded aspirational charter inten

Igneous Rock - by Study Jams
Igneous rock forms from melted rock called magma.  Magma exists inside the earth's surface, and it becomes lava when it is released through a volcanic eruption.  When it cools, it becomes igneous rock.  Learn more about igneous rock with this slide show from StudyJams.  Vibrant pictures are set to music while information is written under each photo.  A short, self-checking quiz is also provided with this link.

Introduction

Privacy has long been recognised as one of the important human rights and this is reflected in religion and history. There are, for example, references to privacy in the Qur'an, the Bible and Jewish law. Privacy was also protected in classical Greece and ancient China.

The protection of privacy is seen as a way of drawing the line to indicate how far society can intrude into a person's affairs. Privacy encompasses an individual's liberty to choose how they lead their lives, freedom from

"Environmental Degradation and Deforestation in Thailand and Cambodia"
Alan Kolata is Neukom Family Distinguished Service Professor of Anthropology, The University of Chicago. There is little doubt that climate change, deforestation, erosion, and the unequal distribution of natural resources around the globe are of pressing importance everywhere, but these problems are perhaps most acute in Asia, home to 64 percent of the world’s population. Much of this population (1 and 1.3 billion, respectively) is concentrated in India and China, two countries with rapidly g

7.2 What people do with the money?

Diane and John didn't get any money.

Enid saved her ‘lads’ money for them, and bought them clothes and other things from what she saved. She spent her ICA on herself, though it didn't sound as if she treated herself to many luxuries.

Sarah's payments went towards the allowances for her volunteer helpers at university. They helped her with making meals, mobility around the campus and getting into town. Sometimes she needed help with personal care, such as washing her hair.

1 Crossing boundaries: a case study

A number of situations put a strain on the idea that caring is just an extension of 'being ordinary'. These include times when people are giving intimate care. Since the normal rules do not apply in these circumstances, we have to develop a set of special rules to guide practice, thinking very carefully about the core question: 'How can boundaries be respected in situations where intimate care is being given?’'

This question will be explored through a fictional case study set in a res
