Quotes

"There is this image of crossbreeds as paragons of health. In fact they are just crosses of purebreds, with combinations of prevalences you find in their parent. It is not that they are healthier overall, and it is wrong to stigmatise purebreds."
...will underline the real need for further work into the effects of coinfection" added Professor Russell Stothard, Corresponding Author of the paper, "Failure to develop and implement a realistic research agenda for infected children will result in the neglect of the youngest children who might be at particular risk for increased HIV transmission, HIV progression, and impaired response to drugs."
Dave affirmed, "We have no doubt that the new plant will show savings in energy costs for the RVC, as the Evomod boiler is a high efficiency condensing model and also features a sophisticated fully modulating control system. We expect to achieve at least 20 – 25 per cent savings in fuel costs against the previous oil-fired boilers. In addition, as the Evomod is so easy to maintain, there will be far fewer maintenance costs incurred by the College."
"But it may be the cognitive skills of nest building that really underpin the abilities that in humans - and to a much more limited extent, in chimpanzees - allow sophisticated tool manufacture."
