There has been a growing fascination over the past
century with the emotional and psychological aspects of
children’s art expressions, particularly from the fields of
psychology, psychiatry, and art therapy. Drawing has
been undeniably recognized as one of the most important
ways that children express themselves and has been
repeatedly linked to the expression of personality and
emotions. Children’s drawings are thought to reflect their
inner worlds, depicting various feelings and relating

From non-profit performance space to galleries, to
businesses that offer classes, to specialty supply shops,
to the individual artist entrepreneur and contractor,
neighborhood arts activity is an identifiable business
sector. In some communities, artist entrepreneurs play
a similar early entrant role for commercial strips as
they do for artist housing development.
As economists who study business clusters recognize,
geographical proximity and the interactions that
emerge from related activities within a local area are
important even in the age of electronic connectivity.
Over the past decade, there has been a vast explosion in new information
relating to the art and science of dermatology as well as fundamental cutaneous
biology. Furthermore, this information is no longer of interest only to
the small but growing specialty of dermatology. Scientists from a wide variety
of disciplines have come to recognize both the importance of skin in fundamental
biological processes and the broad implications of understanding
the pathogenesis of skin disease. As a result, there is now a multidisciplinary
and worldwide interest in the progress of dermatology....

The contributors to the conference comprised a mixture of art historians,
curators, museum studies lecturers, anthropologists, archaeologists and
artists, and the conference timetable positioned established academics
alongside scholars at an earlier stage in their research and writing careers.
Among the art forms identified in the eighteenth century as central – painting, music,
sculpture, architecture, literature -- sculpture has perhaps received the least focused
attention from aestheticians as having its own standards of excellence, or as affording a
distinctive kind of aesthetic experience. Unlike music or architecture, traditional
sculpture does not pose obvious questions about common claims concerning the nature of
art or of aesthetic experience (such as imitation or disinterestedness).
Oocyte donation is now an integral part of the armamentarium of the infertility specialist. At its inception, it was intended as therapy for women with premature ovarian failure, or those with heritable genetic defects. However, as experience accumulated, oocyte donation as a treatment has been extended to women with a variety of defects in oocyte production or function. The largest group of women now undergoing treatment with oocyte donation consists of those with age-related decline in fertility. ...
In this book leading experts provide the state-of-the-art in the emerging and exciting
field of pharmacogenomics. The multitude of ways that pharmacogenomics
can be approached and applied reflects the possibilities brought about by the
wealth of data generated by the Human Genome Project, in conjunction with parallel
advances in bioinformatics and biotechnology. Procedures that are now routine
were a decade ago thought to be impossible.
On April 22nd, 1915, the writer, in company with Major Rankin, saw the Germans launch their first gas attack
near St. Julien upon the section of the line held by the French colonial troops and the first Canadian division.
This book was written primarily for the purpose of recording this as well as some of the other experiences of
the first Canadian division as seen from the unusual angle of a scientist, in the course of 18,000 miles of travel
in the front line area. It had the secondary object of giving the average reader some insight into what goes on
behind the lines, and...

The advantages which have been derived from the caution with which hypothetical statements are admitted,
are in no instance more obvious than in those sciences which more particularly belong to the healing art. It
therefore is necessary, that some conciliatory explanation should be offered for the present publication: in
which, it is acknowledged, that mere conjecture takes the place of experiment; and, that analogy is the
substitute for anatomical examination, the only sure foundation for pathological knowledge.
This approach isn't new. Economy has always been one of the core disciplines in Art and in
Design. The Old Masters were masters of economy. Look at the brush strokes on an old painting,
and you’ll see how much people achieved with so few strokes. It’s not that they didn’t have the
talent, or the time, to do more strokes, it’s just that they knew that using as few strokes of the
brush as possible to create the desired effect produces the best result. Using rougher strokes on
areas like backgrounds or material on clothing helped the eye to focus on the finer detail.
