For a long time, research on developmental issues in the biological and
social sciences was mostly concerned with the early parts of life, such as
infancy and adolescence. Studies paying full attention to people after they
had passed through late adolescence were rare even though we all know
that humans continue to develop. The dynamics of adult life can be as
forceful and full of transitory states as is life before 20. Individual
development is a lifelong process: from the moment of conception to the
moment of death.
A severe challenge to the idea that mitochondrial DNA mutations play a major role in the aging process in mammals is that clear loss-of-function mutations accumulate only to very low levels (under 1% of total) in almost any tissue, even by very old age. Their accumulation is punctate: some cells become nearly devoid of wild-type mitochondrial DNA and exhibit no activity for the partly mitochondrially encoded enzyme cytochrome c oxidase. Such cells accumulate in number with aging, suggesting that they survive indeﬁnitely, which is itself paradoxical....
Cellular manifestations of aging are most pronounced in postmitotic cells, such as neurons and cardiac myocytes. Alterations of these cells, which are responsible for essential functions of brain and heart, are particularly important contributors to the overall aging process. Mitochondria and lysosomes of postmitotic cells suﬀer the most remarkable age-related alterations of all cellular organelles.

You Are Being Lied To. It takes some nerve to give a book that title, eh? It came to me very early in the process, when this collection was just a germ of an idea. I did pause to wonder if it was too audacious; after all, I didn’t want my mouth to write a check that my butt couldn’t cash. But after spending several intense months assembling this book, I’m more convinced than ever that the title is the proper one. We are being lied to.
Business is the economic mode of operation conditions exist in the economy of goods, including the overall methods, forms and means by which economic agents to make use of its economic activity (including the process of investment, production, transportation, trade, services ...) on the basis of value rules apply along with other rules, in order to achieve the highest capital profitability.
Stop Producing Chaos – a cry from the heart! When the great guru of quality
management and process improvement W. Edwards Deming died at the age of
93 at the end of 1993, the last words on his lips must have been ‘Management
still doesn’t understand process variation’.
Despite all his efforts and those of his followers, including me, we still find
managers in manufacturing, sales, marketing, finance, service and public
sector organizations all over the world reacting (badly) to information and
In general, the health status at old age has an important individual and social relevance. The
vulnerability is increasing by physiological and morphological changes in the organism and
central nervous system during the ageing process. The indicators of physiological health are
based on prevalence of disabilities and causes of death. In Germany the main causes of death
are circulatory diseases, neoplasms, diseases of respiratory system and diseases of digestive
system (Statistisches Bundesamt 2007a; Nolte, Shkolinikov & McKee 2000).

A well-written, easy-to-absorb guide to healing, change, and a healthy way of being in the world.
Health is not a possession – it’s a process. It’s something we do, the result of how we think and feel, a state of mind and being.
Nearly 2,500 years ago Hippocrates taught that being healthy was evidence that an individual had achieved harmony both within themelves and with their environment. The authors of ‘NLP and Health’ believe that this is equally true today. Their book demonstrates how to use NLP tools to bring your mind and body into harmony and to explore the enigmatic key...
Until relatively recent times, most periods of technological development have been linked to
changes in the use of materials (eg the stone, bronze and iron ages). In more recent years the
driving force for technological change in many respects has shifted towards information
technology. This is amply illustrated by the way the humble microprocessor has built
intelligence into everyday domestic appliances.
We now turn to presenting results. After examining the demographic characteristics of Cambodian
elders, we explore a number of social, economic and health issues in that order. When presenting the
results in tabular form, we limit examination of differentials to gender, location (Phnom Penh versus the
remainder of the provinces) and age (60-69 versus 70+). Each of these dimensions are typically of
interest for both academics and policy-makers.
Another study conducted in a kaolin refinery industry produces hazardous by-product such
as Al, Fe, and Zn. In kaolin processing, sulphuric acid is used to improve the whitening
(Jordao et al., 2002) is discharged to the river waters. This will influence the well being of
aquatic organisms that adapted well at close to neutral pH. Also, in order not to affect the
colour and whiteness of paper, impurities such as iron oxides is needed to be removed. This
can be made through the reduction of Fe(III) to Fe(II) with metallic Zn. Therefore, Zn, Fe, Al
are usually present in the discharge....
Rapid technological developments in the last century have brought the field of biomedical engineering into a totally new realm. Breakthroughs in materials science, imaging, electronics and, more recently, the information age have improved our understanding of the human body. As a result, the field of biomedical engineering is thriving, with innovations that aim to improve the quality and reduce the cost of medical care.
