  • In early summer 2004, off the northern coast of the North Island of New Zealand, four swimmers were suddenly surrounded by a pod of bottlenose dolphins herding them into a tight circle. The dolphins were agitated, flapping at the water, and they continuously circled the swimmers, keeping them close together for over half an hour. A lifeguard patrolling in a boat nearby saw the commotion and dove in with the swimmers to find out what was happening. While under water, he saw a great white shark, now swimming away, beneath the swimmers.

  • Although advances have undoubtedly occurred, considered reflections about the seminal contributions of Bleuler - and indeed Kraepelin - in this centenary year, may make one wonder whether these treatment advances are a somewhat thin veneer, rather than the step change required. It could be argued that progress has been more due to changes in societal values and attitudes rather than the development of effective novel interventions – either pharmacological or psychological.

Otherwise known as South-South labor migrants, these workers are filling jobs in manufacturing, agriculture, construction and service industries in countries like Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Egypt. Migrant workers provide a cost-effective and hardworking labor force in labor-intensive industries, but they are also vulnerable, isolated and often heavily indebted.

  • Once upon a time, JavaScript was a dirty word. It got its bad name from being misused and abused—in the early days of the Web, developers only ever used JavaScript to create annoying animations or unnecessary, flashy distractions.

It reflects something of a turning point in JavaScript development—many of the effects and techniques described in these pages were thought impossible only a few years ago.

Norwegian researchers, for instance, identified abuse with a ‘‘triangle of violence’’ that includes a victim, a perpetrator and others, who – directly or indirectly – observe the principal players.

  • In toxicology the effects are normally correlated to the quantity of product to which individual animals or humans are exposed. The greater the mass absorbed, the greater the effect. In the case of NP, it has been clearly shown that the measured effects are not linked to the mass of the product, which challenges our entire approach to the classical interpretation of toxicity measurement. It is clearly shown that at equal mass, NP are more toxic than products of the same chemical composition but of greater size.
