The gender gap in longevity, however, was not new; it had been steadily widening since 1920, when women and men in the United States lived lives that were equal in length.

  • “Be it deep or shallow, red or black, sand or clay, the soil is the link between the rock core of the earth and the living things on its surface. It is the foothold for the plants we grow. Therein lays the main reason for our interest in soils.” --- Roy W. Simonson, USDA Yearbook of Agriculture, 1957. The British naturalist Charles Darwin (1809–1882) was probably the first scientist to examine a soil profile and suggest factors responsible for the structure of the various layers.

  • We do the research that identifies causes of disease and disability. We advocate for solutions. We consult with policymakers and provide them with the evidence they need to make change. We roll our sleeves up and get to work in communities by influencing policies, identifying trends, implementing solutions, and increasing healthy behavior. Our work happens on a molecular level, and on a population-wide level. Microbiologists work to find a vaccine for malaria, while behavioral scientists research ways to discourage populations from smoking.

  • In 1877 the Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli (1835-1910) observed some markings on the planet Mars which he referred to as canali. This was mistranslated into English as canals, suggesting man-made structures and the existence of intelligent life on Mars, instead of channels, which occur naturally. The idea of canals appealed to the imaginations of scientists and novelists alike. The astronomer Percival Lowell used it as the basis for his 'scientific observations', recorded in such works as Mars and its Canals (1908). The novelist H.G.

The way to resolve this situation is to develop and evaluate estuarine environmental indicators that will permit objective and meaningful evaluation of estuaries.

  • Direct users of the information Apheis produces and disseminates include the scientists who appear just to the right of the Apheis box and who receive information directly from Apheis. These scientists in turn pass that information on to other scientists and to committees, seen in the box further to the right, all of whom thus become pass-on users, because they receive the information Apheis produces indirectly from Apheis. Then, the individual scientists and committees pass Apheis information on to the policy advisors below them, who form another group of pass-on users.
