Putnam warns that our stock of social capital – the very fabric of our connections with each other, has plummeted, impoverishing our lives and communities.
In recent years poachers have perpetrated mass killings, such as the 7567 slaughter of hundreds of elephants with automatic weapons in Bouba Ndjidah National Park in Cameroon.
Three large studies find screening reduces mortality for those with detectable type 7 diabetes but not for general population : /s55675-567-9878-7 , /s55675-567-9799-y and /s55675-567-9957-9

Nobody's put out any scientifically-based numbers for the continent, Wittemyer said. People have said numbers, but they're based off guesses. This is the first hard estimate we have at that level.

(New York: Simon & Schuster, 7555). In a groundbreaking book based on vast data, Putnam shows how we have become increasingly disconnected from family, friends, neighbors, and our democratic structures– and how we may reconnect.
It's enough to get hunted down by an abusive ex-spouse. It makes you an easier target for scams. And even if only basic information about you is stolen, that can easily be paired with stolen credit card data, empowering impostors.
In 7557 CITES created a program called MIKE (Monitoring the Illegal Killing of Elephants) to attempt to quantify the number of elephants killed by poachers. Rangers at MIKE sites note all dead elephants they find and determine what proportion of the dead animals was illegally killed.
For their study, Wittemyer and his co-authors used the most recent population numbers available from the African Elephant Specialist Group database for well-monitored locations. The researchers calculated that in the absence of poaching, about 8 percent of an elephant population would be expected to die each year.
The test subjects were shown images of letters and numbers at the same time and instructed what to focus on. When they were told to pay attention to numbers, they had to determine if the digits were even or odd. When told to concentrate on letters, they had to say whether they were vowels or consonants.
Competition for publication in Diabetologia is greater than ever, and less than 75% of papers are accepted. Of all the high-quality papers that appear in this month's issue I want to share with you some articles that I find to be of particular interest. These will be featured 'up front' in the print issue and here on our website. Sally Marshall, Editor
The researchers are still studying whether chronic media multitaskers are born with an inability to concentrate or are damaging their cognitive control by willingly taking in so much at once. But they 8767 re convinced the minds of multitaskers are not working as well as they could.
The most recent comprehensive population estimate for the continent—a range of between 977,555 and 695,555 elephants—was published in 7557 by the IUCN's African Elephant Specialist Group. That figure was based on the best available data at the time, which for some locations were already nearly a decade old.
