Choosing a major can be scary. It’s not a simple either/or decision, like choosing a car
with either stick shift or automatic. It means a commitment of several years and,
in most cases, a great amount of money. Although it’s a personal decision, your friends
and relatives will probably feel free to second-guess it. How can you sort out all of the
possible choices and pick one that’s right for you?

All Americans have a stake in effective response to hate
crimes. These crimes demand priority attention because
of their special impact. Bias crimes are designed to
intimidate the victim and members of the victim’s
community, leaving them feeling isolated, vulnerable,
and unprotected by the law. Failure to address this
unique type of crime could cause an isolated incident to
explode into widespread community tension. The
damage done by hate crimes, therefore, cannot be
measured solely in terms of physical injury or dollars and

· Net benefit vs. user cost method of calculating depletion. These are two different
methods for estimating the depletion of natural capital. The net benefit method is much
simpler than the user cost method, and therefore has been used widely. It is considered
technically incorrect by economists; however, those who use it feel that despite its
inaccuracy it offers an acceptable proxy value for depletion.
· Inclusion of "maintenance costs." Maintenance costs are the expenditures that a country
would have to make in order for its use of the environment to be sustainable.

The area of work that is, perhaps, most readily associated with work in the
realm beyond the rationality and control is research on emotions. A num-
ber of broad domains of scholarship can be seen as working to describe
the emotions or feelings experienced in learning situations. Research on
the brain, spurred by advancements in imaging technology, offers tanta-
lizing glimpses into the relationship between emotions, cognition, and
Another general domain in the study of emotions focuses on students’
feelings about themselves or their performance.
It is hoped that this little work may assist in the search along the dark path upon which many a poet and—in later times—many an investigator has set his feet. It would not be worthy of us, whom science and technical ability has raised to so high an intellectual position as explorers of Nature in every field—should we neglect anything however trivial, deeming it as beneath our notice. We know so much about all that lies around us: the manner in which the cells build our bodies; how the juices circulate within the plant. We feel Nature to be...
The University of Chicago Science Series, established by the Trustees of the University, owes its origin to a
feeling that there should be a medium of publication occupying a position between the technical journals with
their short articles and the elaborate treatises which attempt to cover several or all aspects of a wide field.
Risk mapping Draw a basic map of the workplace, marking on it the
machines, workstations and the substances or processes used. Record on
the risk map any health problems reported by workers doing particular jobs.
Repeat the exercise periodically and see if any problems become apparent.
If cancer causing substances or processes are being used, investigate
alternatives and, if this is not possible, safer work methods.
Body mapping Draw two body outlines on a large piece of paper, one
representing the front of a person, one the back.
