Winter Lecture Series - 2009: Diet detective: What's on the menu for our coastal marine animals?
Dr McLeod – the 2008 McDiarmid Young Scientist of the year – has a fascination with the slimy and disgusting that has seen her study hagfish in Fiordland and metre-long worms in Antarctica. She looks at the importance of rain forest and sea ice for the diets of these creatures. What if more forests are cut down, or if the sea ice disappears? Armed with these answers, it is becoming possible to predict the challenges ahead for these coastal creatures, and for coastal ecosystems in general. 20

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.

1.4.3 R is for Relevance

Relevance is an important factor to consider when you are evaluating information. It isn’t so much a property of the information itself but of the relationship it has with your question or your ‘information need’. For example,if you are writing an essay about the geography of Chile, a book or website about Chilean political history would not be relevant. So there are a number of ways in which a piece of information may not be relevant to your query:

The banking crisis: cause and effect
Autumn 2008 witnessed a global financial crisis with governments worldwide taking emergency action to prevent a collapse of the banking system. The aftermath of the worst financial crisis since the 1930s saw economic activity slump. In the UK, higher unemployment, falling house prices and a sharp increase in government debt proved to be the alarming legacy of the near implosion of the banking system. This fascinating insight into the downfall of the global financial markets gives us a clear unde

2.1 Introduction

In this section, we explore how experiences of being an older person in the nineteenth century were constituted through the operation of the 1834 New Poor Law Act and the processes of industrial change that ran parallel to it. We examine the way this constructed the lives of older people as ‘other’ to the emergent ‘normal’ (adult, relatively youthful, male paid worker) and trace its legacy to reveal points of continuity and change.

3.7 Massacres of Chios – a critical stir

Chauvin viewed both Delacroix’s subject and his technique as barbaric: the painting dealt with no eternal truths and delivered no inspiring lesson. Other complaints were voiced about the rough brushwork that called attention to itself in such a non-academic manner. The ‘cadaverous tint’ of the bodies also drew criticism. Gros, whose own compositional experiments had inspired Delacroix, allegedly called the picture the ‘massacre of painting’ (quoted in Johnson, 1981, p.87), while Ste

2.4.2 Lipid-linked proteins and lipoproteins

Lipid-linked proteins are proteins that have been covalently modified by addition of one or more lipid groups. Note that the term lipoprotein, though sometimes used to describe lipid-linked proteins, is strictly applicable only to those proteins that associate with lipids non-covalently. These proteins have quite distinct functions. Lipoproteins serve to transport triacylglycerols and cholesterol in the blood plasma. We will not be discussing them any further at this point.

2 What is brain-based learning and teaching?

Neuroscientists now have more sophisticated ways of examining living brains than was ever possible before. It is now possible to obtain images of the brain that show activity as it occurs. The importance of the first years of life has always been recognised by early years practitioners but the new information about the brain deepens our understanding about why this might be.

Perry and Pollard (1997) reported on the effects of sensory stimulation, or the lack of it, on early brain develo
