Research shows that sensational news stories as well as popular romance novels
often feature themes related to important topics in evolutionary psychology. In the first of
four studies described in this paper we examined the song lyrics from three Billboard
charts: Country, Pop, and R&B. A content analysis of the lyrics revealed 18 reproductive
themes that read like an outline for a course in evolutionary psychology. Approximately
92% of the 174 songs that made it into the Top Ten in 2009 contained one or more
reproductive messages, with an average of 10.49 reproductive...
Therefore, the brain hormonal milieu in which exogenous hormones are introduced is
markedly different in menopause from that in menstruating women.
In the ovariectomized animals, however, the hormonal changes in the animals are abrupt in
contrast to the gradual hormonal changes found in the menopausal transition. It might be
the concerted lack of estradiol and progesterone that facilitate the seizure susceptibility.
Both estradiol and progesterone affect γ-amino butyric acid (GABA) ergic function
(Scharfman et al, 2005; Nakumura et al, 2005; Kokate et al, 1994).
How long does it take to learn another language? How many words do we need to learn? Are languages within the reach of everybody? Which teachers would we choose and which teachers should we avoid? These are some of the questions you ask yourself when you start learning a new language. The Word Brain provides the answers.
Acute haematogenous osteomyelitis refers to infection of bone resulting from bacteria in the
bloodstream. This is seen most often in children, with initial infection thought to occur in the
richly vascularised metaphyseal region (Gutierrez, 2005). Children are thought to experience
frequent episodes of bacteraemia, often with no apparent symptoms, leading to seeding and
development of osteomyelitis (Conrad, 2010). The pathogenesis of this process has been
Prison policies often overlook the special needs of women and their health. Many women in
prison have high levels of mental illness and drug or alcohol dependence as well as histories of
sexual and physical abuse and violence. Issues arising from gender-specific health care needs
and family responsibilities are also frequently neglected. Although women represent a small
percentage of the total prison population, their numbers are increasing and the rate of increase is
much greater than that of men.
Having watched emergency medicine develop in the United States over the last
twenty years I realize how much I have seen of the foundation a major new specialty
and what a critical role it plays. In addition, over the last decade I have had the
privilege of being involved with a multitude international colleagues. This has been
one of the most eye opening and professionally inspiring experiences I have had.
One of the greatest diamond exploration success stories of the twentieth century was that of Russia. In the
1930s Russian explorers recognized geological similarities between the ancient bedrock in Siberia and some
diamond-rich parts of southern Africa. They began prospecting in the Sakha region and in 1954 discovered
the first kimberlite pipe in the region, called Zarnitsa (Dawn); more than 500 additional kimberlites were
discovered during the next two years.
The hierarchical architecture is a straightforward extension of a centralized
architecture. It only requires that the basic central server be modiﬁed to propa-
gate any information that it receives (i.e., subscriptions, etc.) on to its “master”
server. In fact, the server/server protocol we use within the hierarchical archi-
tecture is exactly the same as the protocol described in Section 3 for commu-
nication between the servers and the external clients of the event notiﬁcation

After CFA made a random selection of the time frame from which credit files were to be
analyzed, a generic number was assigned to keep the nameless study data from each
study file separated from other study files. No copies or partial copies of any credit
reports, on paper or electronically, were removed from any credit reporting agency
location. Anonymous credit scores and an analysis of the credit data, as reviewed by
credit reporting agency personnel for security and industry knowledge, was supervised
and recorded by the CFA researcher for tabulation.
From an economic point of view, this development corresponds to
experiences already achieved in other markets – the shift from supply-driven
markets to demand-driven markets. As food is one of the basic goods, this
means that once a basic level of food supply is guaranteed, the consumer
develops an increased interest in quality and variety. Through the ability to
choose between a broad range of food products, the consumer acceptance of
new food is the final criterion for a successful market introduction.
The feedback from oil prices to economic activity is captured by a reduced-form
production function that allows us to separately specify shocks to the output gap
(transitory shocks to output), shocks to potential output (permanent shocks to the level of
output), and shocks to potential output growth (permanent shocks to the growth rate of
output). The richness of this speciﬁcation helps us to model the complicated interactions
of oil price movements and GDP, where both trend and gap decline if oil prices increase.
Some years later Stamey modified the sextant technique and took sextant biopsies that were
lateral to the mid-sagittal plane in the peripheral zone where most prostate cancers are
typically located (Stamey, 1995). Other investigators went on to study alternatives to the
traditional sextant biopsy, namely the optimum number of core biopsies for diagnosis as
well as sampling of the transition zone in an effort to improve the negative predictive value
of prostate biopsy.
Intuitively researchers began sampling more prostatic tissue however the procedure was not
These types of policies give rise to an annual charge as well as to the other
charges that arise on a gain. In general, a Personal Portfolio Bond (PPB) is a
life insurance policy where the benefits payable are determined by the value
of certain property chosen directly or indirectly by the policyholder ,
rather than investment funds generally available to other policyholders.
The charge will arise if the policy is a PPB at the end of the insurance year .
You are treated as having made a gain of an amount equal to 15 per cent of
premiums paid, with the premiums paid being treated...
Next, I would like to focus on the position of Vice-President,
currently held by Dr. Karl Podratz. If we may read the “Bylaws”
of IGCS, we find the following: “The Vice-President, in the
absence of the President, shall preside at all meetings of
the Society and Council and shall have all the powers of
President in the event of vacancy in the office of President.
S/he shall assist the President in the performance of his/her
duties as requested by the President.” This means that the
Vice-President is the core of the cabinet.
Education and training are particularly important in the current crisis. In times of recession,
budget constraints (in government, households and businesses) tend to reduce expenditure on
education and training. On the other hand, due to rising unemployment, demand for training
increases. Support for education and training during the current crisis can help displaced workers
find new job opportunities and can thus support the restructuring process.
Until the early 1990’s latex production has been the main objective for
rubberwood cultivation in Thailand. In 1989 the Thai government established
a national natural forests logging ban. This law raised an immediate demand
for construction and furniture wood in Thailand. Previously, the rubberwood
trunks left over after the latex production, were either used as firewood at the
plantation site or in charcoal production. Rubberwood offers qualities to ease
off the demand for natural tropical forest trees and this way helps to decrease
the pressure on illegal logging.
There has been a growing realization in national governments and multilateral institutions
that it is impossible to separate economic development issues from environment issues; many
forms of development erode the environmental resources upon which they must be based, and
environmental degradation can undermine economic development. Poverty is a major cause
and effect of global environmental problems. It is therefore futile to attempt to deal with
environmental problems without a broader perspective that encompasses the factors
underlying world poverty and international inequality....
Beginning in the 1970s, the growth of remittances to India took place alongside the increased
migration to the oil-producing countries of Western Asia, India and Pakistan are the largest suppliers of
non-Arab labour (Premi and Mathur, 1995). Remittances from the oil-producing countries of Western
Asia to India increased from virtually nothing to 51 per cent of total remittances by 1988. In 1991, they
represented 40 per cent of total remittances received in India (Premi and Mathur, 1995).
Remittances sent to many Asian countries are used primarily for basic expenditure.
Air pollution is one of the most serious
environmental threats to urban populations
(Cohen 2005). Exposures vary among and within
urban areas, but all people living in cities are
exposed, and many are harmed, by current levels
of pollutants in many large cities. Infants, young
children, seniors and people who have lung
and heart conditions are especially affected, but
even young, healthy adults are not immune to
harm from poor air quality.
