An Introduction To Scholarship offers a practical, skills-based approach to developing the basic academic and critical thinking skills required to succeed in the tertiary environment.
When Edwin Hubble looked into his telescope in the 1920s, he was shocked to find that nearly all of the galaxies he could see through it were flying away from one another. If these galaxies had always been travelling, he reasoned, then they must, at some point, have been on top of one another. This discovery transformed the debate about one of the most fundamental questions of human existence - how did the universe begin?
Every society has stories about the origin of the cosmos and its inhabitants, but now, with the power to peer into the early universe and deploy the knowledge gleaned from archaeology, geology, evolutionary biology and cosmology, we are closer than ever to understanding where it all came from. In The Origin of (almost) Everything, New Scientist explores the modern origin stories of everything from the Big Bang, meteorites and dark energy, to dinosaurs, civilisation, timekeeping, belly-button fluff and beyond.
From how complex life evolved on Earth, to the first written language, to how humans conquered space, The Origin of (almost) Everything offers a unique history of the past, present and future of our universe.
Your gut is astonishingly clever. It contains millions of neurons - as many as you would find in the brain of a cat - and is home to the microbiome, trillions of microbes that influence your mood, your immune system, and even your appetite.
In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Mosley takes us on a revelatory journey through the gut, showing how junk food and overuse of antibiotics have wiped out many good gut bacteria, leading to a modern plague of allergies, food intolerances, and obesity.
Drawing from the latest cutting-edge research, Dr. Mosley provides scientifically proven ways to control your cravings, boost your mood, and lose weight by encouraging a more diverse microbiome and increasing the good bacteria that keep you healthy.
Packed with delicious, healing recipes, meal plans, checklists, and tips, The Clever Guts Diet includes all the tools you need to transform your gut and your health, for life.

Sedert die tweede druk van die tweede uitgawe in 1975 was Die siel van die mier egter slegs as ín skaars tweedehandse eksemplaar beskikbaar. Hierdie uitgawe is verryk deur ín inleidende besinning oor die vraag of Maeterlinck, die Belgiese Nobelpryswenner, Marais se teorie oor die termietnes as organiese eenheid oorgeneem het. Origens blyk dit uit die verskillende drukke en uitgawes hoe Afrikaans in die jare twintig van die twintigste eeu nog op weg was om ín wetenskaplike woordeskat te vind en die addendum bevat artikels wat vandag slegs met moeite uit ou tydskrifte en koerante opgediep kan word.
