  • In many parts of the world the primary source of animal protein for humans is finfish. The intensive culture of finfish has grown significantly since the 1980s partly because of the dramatic decline in the natural fish stocks and the increase in fish consumption by the ever-increasing population. For example, the worldwide consumption of fish between 1990 and 1997 increased by 30% while the capture fisheries increased only by 9%.

  • Contemporary interest in food is not confined to pleasure in its consumption, but extends in every direction: to its economic importance, the semiotics of food taste, the dangers of food additives and the politics of food security. We live in societies as dominated by food preferences as by sexual preferences, as obsessed about eating too little as by eating too much. In addition our interest in food is associated, for good and evil, with our interest in ‘nature’.

  • One of the most important aspects of learning, and perhaps the most neglected, is that of developing those thinking skills that enable students to analyse texts, critically evaluate arguments, construct a sound argument of their own and present that argument clearly, coherently and effectively. Aware of the lack of publications covering this aspect, a group of lecturers in Philosophy at the Rand Afrikaans University designed a set of course notes to meet this need. These notes proved so effective that they have been used as the basis for this publication....

  • Danny and Heather have asked -- not demanded, asked! -- that I consider publishing books under a NoDerivs license, so that I can consult with them before I authorize translations of my books. They want to be able to talk to potential foreign publishers about how this stuff works, to give me time to talk with them, to ease them into the idea, and to have the kind of extended conversation that helped me lead Tor into their decision all those years ago. And I agreed. Free/open culture is something publishers need to be led to, not forced into.

  • However, neither side of the controversy has presented convincing empirical evidence for their claims. Private banks point towards the Italian experience to corroborate their case for privatization. Since 1990, Italy has gradually privatized its savings banks by separating the banking business from social and cultural activities, by abandoning the “regional prin- ciple,” and by enforcing a reduction of the government ownership of banks.

  • But then another side of the issue comes to the fore. The landscapes that we ordinarily know are not pristine nature, but cultivated landscapes, rural or pastoral, with their towns and cities. Over the centuries, people have worked out their geography with multiple kinds of industry and perception, mixing nature and culture in diverse ways, no doubt some better, some worse. But who is to say that a science-based appreciation is the only right one? 9 Nature as seen by science is just the way we Westerners currently 'constitute' our world—so the phenomenologists may say.

  • Universal access means that enough services and information are available, accessible and acceptable to meet the different needs of all individuals. This requires that people can safely reach services without travelling for a long time or distance, and that those with disabilities can easily access buildings.

  • Economic thinking is all about making difficult choices. Critical economic thinking is all about being aware of how you think about economic issues so that you can make the best decisions possible. All of us engage in economic thinking whether it is shopping for ourselves, making business decisions that affect our fellow workers, or deciding on government policies that affect the entire nation. Of course such decision making is not done solely from an economic perspective. Shopping decisions are affected by a variety of cultural influences.

  • Soil provides a list of services to all users of terrestrial ecosystems and is crucial to our agricultural societies. From an anthropogenic point of view, soil quality may be then measured in terms of the services the soil provides to our society. The value of soil services to human societies has changed during history and thus the value we give to soils has also changed over time as it depends upon the economic and cultural basis of a society for a given context. While throughout history human awareness of the soil services has been mainly reduced to food, fibre and...

  • As health care providers, we spend our lives searching for treatments that reduce suffering and lengthen the lives of our patients. Sometimes we find solutions in surprising places. Although we all have hopes for advancements in technology, the future of medicine is also about challenging preconceptions as we change our healing biases. In many ways, this is the natural evolution of “global medicine.” We have global communications and global banking; however, until recently medicine has remained remarkably provincial.

  • During the last few decades inordinate attention has been paid to the promotion of ‘healthy’ living. This has come from governmental, academic, commercial and popular sources. Few people today can be unaware of the espoused merits of such a lifestyle.

Health is clearly a topical issue at both political and cultural levels....

It systematically attempts to make this data robust: to verify it, ensure as far as possible that it is not partial or selective, and quantify it in such a way that it allows London to be compared with other cities. To assist judgement, we have also recorded, as far as possible on a...
