Quotes

"Although anhidrosis is quite a rare condition, the 'opposite' phenotype — excess sweating, or hyperhidrosis — is a common problem, affecting 2 percent of the population" Dahl said. The new findings suggest that a drug that blocks InsP3R could reduce sweat production, the researchers said
Head of health information at Cancer Research Dr Julie Sharp said: "This is an intriguing theory but more research is needed to establish whether loss of the Y chromosome really could be a predictor of cancer risk."
"Gender equality is one of the success factors for the Swedish game industry. In the high-performance gaming world might Swedish game studios compete for international excellence in offering a functional daily life as small children when paternity leave encouraged. [The] Diversity issue is obvious in an international working environment that recruits skills from around the world. Differences in work [are] required to create games for a diverse audience. Many of the Swedish hit games are played equally by women and men of both young and old. Games have become a natural hobby for everyone."
"The group's behaviour instead emerges from 'self-organising principles'," Dr Herbert-Read explains. "That is, the actions and reactions of individuals to their neighbours' behaviour allow the group to function as a coherent unit."
