However, not all women are mothers, and their nutritional and health needs go far beyond motherhood and reproduction. Women of all ages in developing countries face elevated risks of nutritional deficiencies.

  • The current RSS polling mechanism has been said to scale well because “its cost is almost directly propor- tional to the number of subscribers” [5]. In fact, linear cost is typically an indicator of poor scaling properties, especially when that cost is focused on one member of a distributed system. It is likely that the further growth of RSS adoption will be badly stunted, without substantial change to the way micronews is distributed.

  • Over the next 100 years, climate models suggest that warmer temperatures will very likely lead to greater climate variability and an increase in the risk of hydrologic extremes, i.e., floods and droughts. Perhaps the most significant and likely impact is a change in the timing of runoff in watersheds with large amounts of winter snowfall as higher temperatures lead to an increase in the ratio of rain to snow, faster snowmelt runoff, and earlier loss of snow.

  • The earth's magnetic field has two magnetic poles. These magnetic poles are the magnetic South Pole and North Pole. The earth's magnetic poles are located at approximately 12° offset from the earth's geographical poles. At the magnetic North Pole, the gridlines of the magnetic field are vertical to the earth's surface. The needle of a compass, for example, will point to this magnetic pole. At the magnetic South Pole, the magnetic lines leave the earth’s surface. The earth’s magnetic field does not run parallel to the earth’s surface.
