Salil Shetty argues that the greatest insecurities continue to be faced by excluded groups and individuals where there is a daily threat to their very existence. He argues that the Millennium Development Goals offer the best means for a breakthrough on poverty and looks at the important role that civil society can play to make governments keep their promise to tackle poverty through the Goals. Development (2005) 48, 25–29. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100106
The Internet offers numerous services which educators can use to keep track of developments in their fields of interest. Internet services that can be used to provide a current awareness service (CAS) in the field of distance education are explored in this article and specific examples are considered. The services considered are all available free of charge or at a very reasonable fee and can be used with a fair amount of ease by individual users. Tables of contents services, electronic newsletters (or e-zines), push services, news filtering services, intelligent agents, news services, search engines and mailing lists and newsgroups are discussed. The value of keeping track of developments in distance education is also pointed out.

Palmitic acid, or hexadecanoic acid, a 16-carbon saturated fatty acid (FA), accounts for approximately 38% of the total circulating FA in lean or obese humans. In an article published in BMC Medicine, Hall et al. report that cultured islets from healthy donors, when exposed to palmitate, undergo changes in CpG methylation that are associated with modifications of expression in 290 genes. Their results provide a first look at the mechanisms used by the endocrine pancreas of humans to keep a durable genomic imprint from their exposure to FA that can influence gene expression and possibly cell phenotype in the long term. It is likely that such studies will help understand the epigenetic response of β cells to a disturbed metabolic environment, especially one created by obesity.
India is now the second largest producer of wheat in the world even though it is the seventh largest in land area. It produces about 70 million tons of wheat per year or about 12 per cent of the world production. Being the second largest in population, it is also the second largest in wheat consumption after China. Although there have been several studies on wheat in India particularly on specific regions or states, such as Sidhu DS and Byerlee Derek (1991), Sidhu DS and Byerlee Derek (1992), Sims, Holly (1988) and Gandhi Vasant (1997), and overall studies on food grains as a whole in India, such as Sarma and Gandhi (1990) and Bhalla and Hazell (1999), there do not seem to be any recent overall studies on the wheat economy of the country as a whole. This paper seeks to examine questions such as: What is the nature of the present whea...
The European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) explicitly refers to a "passive cooling techniques, primarily those that improve indoor climatic conditions and the microclimate around buildings". However, in Europe the demand for air conditioning is rising, especially in office buildings and is expected that the cooled floor area will be four times higher in 2020 when compared with 1990 figures. About 40% of our energy use is consumed in buildings and air conditioning represents a significant part. he overcome this problem conventional answer consists on to improve of the energy efficiency of cooling. However, this startegy showed limited results in terms of saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, cooling can be avoided (or the need to use energy for cooling) or significantly reduced without risking ...
I denne oppgaven presenterer jeg en liten gruppe unge menns forståelse og opplevelse av kroppen innenfor en norsk ”Keep-fit” - kultur. Jeg viser deres handlingsmønstre og diskuterer beveggrunner for deres atferd og sosiale praktikk. Analysen tar utgangspunkt i hvordan kroppen er representert innen gjeldende forbrukersamfunn, kultur og meningsbærende rom. Oppgaven bygger på et 6 måneders langt feltarbeid på et treningssenter i Bergen, SATS LHG. På bakgrunn av daglig kontakt med mannlige informanter i alderen 16 – 24 år har jeg gjennomført en analyse av mannskroppen og tillagte kroppsliggjorte verdier med utgangspunkt i dikotomiene kultur – natur og subjekt – objekt. Det kan sies å være en strukturalistisk tilnærming til studiet av en postmoderne tilstand. For mine informanter var kroppen å anse som et verdi...
