The Safe Food Imperative : Accelerating Progress in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

Food safety hazards are increasingly being recognized as a major public health problem worldwide, yet among developing countries, there is limited understanding of the wider-ranging socio-economic costs of unsafe food and the benefits of remedial or preventative measures. This limited evidence base has led many countries to underinvest in food safety, or invest inefficiently in reaction to serious outbreaks of foodborne illness, othe...

Evolutionary pathways in nature: A phylogenetic approach

Reconstructing phylogenetic trees from DNA sequences has become a popular exercise in many branches of biology, and here the well-known geneticist John Avise explains why.

Outside of that minor point, this book is stunning, the images are crystal clear, and the printing is very well done. Unlike many of us who use digital cameras, these images are mostly done on film and with medium format. Which is clearly evidenced by the level of detail ...

Joss Whedon Vs. The Horror Tradition

Although ostensibly presented as “light entertainment,” the work of writer-director-producer Joss Whedon takes much dark inspiration from the horror genre to create a unique aesthetic and perform a cultural critique. Featuring monsters, the undead, as well as drawing upon folklore and fairy tales, his many productions both celebrate and masterfully repurpose the traditions of horror for their own means. Woofter and Jowett's collectio...
