Der große Sachbuch-Bestseller aus Großbritannien: Endlich wird entlarvt, wie uns Pseudo-Wissenschaftler belügen, um uns Medizin- und Kosmetikprodukte zu verkaufen »Von Zahnärzten empfohlen«.»Von Dermatologen getestet«. Doch mit welchem Ergebnis? Woher wissen wir, ob uns eine medizinische Behandlung hilft? Wie können wir überprüfen, was uns alternative Heilmethoden wie zum Beispiel die Homöopathie versprechen? Und warum glauben kluge, kritische Menschen hanebüchene Dinge, nur weil »die Wissenschaft« sie angeblich bewiesen hat? Ben Goldacre entlarvt mit so viel Witz wie Wissen die zweifelhafte Wissenschaft hinter vermeintlich geprüften und bewiesenen Fakten und zeigt uns, wie wir mit eigenen Mitteln schlechte von guter Wissenschaft unterscheiden können.

The fourth edition of this authoritative text covers every aspect of liver disease affecting infants, children and adolescents. As in the previous editions, it offers an integrative approach to the science and clinical practice of pediatric hepatology and charts the substantial progress in understanding and treating these diseases. All of the chapters are written by international experts and address the unique pathophysiology, manifestations and management of these disorders. This edition of the landmark text features extended coverage of viral hepatitis, metabolic liver disease, fatty liver disease and liver transplantation, including a new chapter on post-transplant care and outcomes. All of the chapters have been updated to reflect changing epidemiology and recent advances in molecular medicine and genomics. With the continued evolution of pediatric hepatology as a discipline, this text remains an essential reference for all physicians involved in the care of children with liver disease.

The fourth edition of this classic in the discipline presents readers with a broad introduction to the field in all of its diversity. The book promotes synthesis, both by stressing the different themes and traditions within the field of geography, and by stressing the synthesizing role of geography as a whole in relation to other fields. Covers the synthesizing role of geography; physical and human geography; globalization; population geography; medical geography. Emphasizes the relationships between humans and the environment, their spatial consequences, and the resulting regional structures that have emerged on Earth's surface. Includes International division of labor; The electronic revolution and its geographic impact; New directions in geography, including plural traditions, gender, and social theory; New coverage of environmental hazards, including the greenhouse effect, ozone layer, and accelerated deforestation; and Added and updated material on remote sensing, GIS, GPS, and the role of microcomputers in geography. Appropriate as an Introduction to Geography, World Regional Geography, and Human Geography.

Dieses auf vier Bände angelegte Werk ist eine Geschichte der "Institution Universität" in Europa von ihrer Entstehung im Mittelalter bis in die heutige Zeit und zugleich eine vergleichende Geschichte der europäischen Universitäten sowie der außereuropäischen Universitäten, die nach europäischem Muster gegründet worden sind. Es wird auf Initiative der europäischen Rektorenkonferenz (CRE), der über 500 wissenschaftliche Hochschulen in 27 europäischen Staaten angehören, von einem internationalen Komitee namhafter Wissenschaftler unter dem Vorsitz von Walter Rüegg (Schweiz) herausgegeben. Absicht dieses Gemeinschaftswerkes ist es, die gesellschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen und Aufgaben, die Merkmale geistiger und institutioneller Identität, die Strukturen, Gestaltungen und Hauptprobleme der europäischen Universitäten in ihren geschichtlichen Grundlagen und Veränderungen, aber auch in ihren regionalen Unterschieden, auf dem heutigen Forschungsstand vergleichend und zusammenfassend darzustellen.

Particle Overload In The Rat Lung And Lung Cancer

Implications For Human Risk Assessment

Recent inhalation toxicology studies suggest that when laboratory rats are exposed to inorganic particles to the point that lung overload occurs, both benign and malignant tumours may develop. The significance of these results for estimating human risk, however, is unclear.; Originally published as a special issue of the journal "Inhalation Toxicology", the contributions to this volume are derived from a symposium held in March, 1995, by the Environmental Medical Service of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Topics addressed include epidemiology, the pathology of lung tumours, maximum tolerated doses in inhalation toxicology studies, risk assessment, the extrapolation of results from animal studies to humans, current modelling techniques and regulatory concerns.

This volume contains the papers presented at the 9th Annual International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology (RECOMB 2005), which was held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on May 14–18, 2005. The RECOMB conference series was started in 1997 by Sorin Istrail, Pavel Pevzner and Michael Waterman. The list of previous meetings is shown below in the s- tion “Previous RECOMB Meetings. ” RECOMB 2005 was hosted by the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and Boston University’s Center for Advanced - nomic Technology, and was excellently organized by the Organizing Committee Co-chairs Jill Mesirov and Simon Kasif. This year, 217 papers were submitted, of which the Program Committee - lected 39 for presentation at the meeting and inclusion in this proceedings. Each submission was refereed by at least three members of the Program Committee. After the completion of the referees’ reports, an extensive Web-based discussion took place for making decisions. From RECOMB 2005, the Steering Committee decided to publish the proceedings as a volume of Lecture Notes in Bioinf- matics (LNBI) for which the founders of RECOMB are also the editors. The prominent volume number LNBI 3500 was assigned to this proceedings. The RECOMB conference series is closely associated with the Journal of Compu- tional Biology which traditionally publishes special issues devoted to presenting full versions of selected conference papers.

Harnessing Foreign Investment to Promote Environmental Protection

Harnessing Foreign Investment to Promote Environmental Protection investigates the main challenges facing the implementation of environmental protection and the synergies between foreign investment and environmental protection. Adopting legal, economic and political perspectives, the contributing authors analyse the various incentives which encourage foreign investment into pro-environment projects (such as funds, project-finance, market mechanisms, payments-for-ecosystem services and insurance) and the safeguards against its potentially harmful effects (investment regulation, CSR and accountability mechanisms, contracts and codes of conduct).

Chemische Evolution und der Ursprung des Lebens

Der Entschluß, ein Buch über den Ursprung (bzw. die Ursprünge) des - bens zu verfassen, setzt voraus, daß man von diesem wissenschaftlichen „großen Problem“ noch immer fasziniert ist, wenn auch die erste intensive Beschäftigung mit dieser Thematik mehr als drei Jahrzehnte zurückliegt. Experimentelle Arbeiten über Protein-Modellsubstanzen unter den si- lierten Bedingungen der Urerde führten zur Entstehung eines der ersten deutschsprachigen Bücher über „Chemische und Molekulare Evolution“, das ich mit Klaus Dose (Mainz), von dem auch die Initiative ausging, v- faßte. Die enorme Erweiterung und Differenzierung dieses Forschungsgebietes führte in den letzten Jahren zur Gründung eines neuen, interdisziplinären Wissenschaftszweiges, der „Exo-/Astrobiologie“. Sie verfolgt das we- gespannte, ehrgeizige Ziel, das Phänomen „Leben“ im gesamten Kosmos zu erforschen. In den folgenden Kapiteln wird ein Überblick über die vielfältigen - mühungen von Wissenschaftlern gegeben, Antworten auf die Frage nach dem „Woher“ des Lebens zu finden. Dabei ist über Erfolge, aber auch Mißerfolge sowie über Diskussionen und gelegentlich harte Kontroversen zu berichten. Es soll aber auch deutlich dargestellt werden, wie viele of- ne Fragen und ungeklärte Rätsel noch auf eine Antwort warten. Es sind - ren mehr, als gern eingestanden wird! – Die Fülle an wissenschaftlichen Publikationen macht es leider unmöglich, über alle Bereiche dieses int- disziplinär ausgerichteten Teilgebietes der Naturwissenschaften mit gl- cher Ausführlichkeit zu berichten.
