The cerebral cortex is the crowning achievement of evolution and the biological substrate of human mental capacities. Using a comparative evolutionary developmental approach to the study of its origin helps to offer new insights into this complex and important problem. The comparison of immature stages reveals features of evolution that are otherwise obstructed by the complexity of the mature brain, and the analysis of development in terms of possible evolutionary events helps us to focus on the most biologically relevant mechanisms. In this book, leading experts in the fields of mammalian, reptilian, avian and amphibian brain development and from evolutionary biology, tackle the fundamental question of the origin of the cerebral cortex. The book includes critical examinations of methods used to study homology in the central nervous system and methods used in cladistic analysis. Recent data on the earliest generated transient cells in the mammalian, reptilian, avian and amphibian forebrain are discussed, as are possible homologies based on specific connectional analysis. The various hypotheses on the origin of the mammalian isocortex are discussed in detail and new results are presented on cortical organization in reptiles, birds, marsupials, monotremes and other species.

The unraveling of the biology and disease mechanisms of the parathyroid has taken great strides in the recent few years. Parathyroid molecular biology is the first book to describe recent studies and discoveries in the field in detail. Key topics addressed include: The study of the molecular biology of the parathyroid hormone gene and its regulation by calcium, phosphate, and vitamin D The generation of mice with genetic deletions of the parathyroid, as well as mice which fail to develop the parathyroid gland The parathyroid's connection to the calcium receptor and its effects, such as regulation of PTH secretion, gene expression, and proliferation The genetic mutations leading to diseases of decreased or excessive activity of the parathyroid The mechanisms of actions associated with patients with chronic renal failure and the development of markedly excessive activity of the parathyroid that causes severe bone disease This book will be essential reading to everyone interested in the latest developments in this burgeoning field.

Molecular Biology of the Cell is the classic in-depth text reference in cell biology. By extracting fundamental concepts and meaning from this enormous and ever-growing field, the authors tell the story of cell biology, and create a coherent framework through which non-expert readers may approach the subject. Written in clear and concise language, and illustrated with original drawings, the book is enjoyable to read, and provides a sense of the excitement of modern biology. Molecular Biology of the Cell not only sets forth the current understanding of cell biology (updated as of Fall 2001), but also explores the intriguing implications and possibilities of that which remains unknown.

One cannot watch cells crawling, dividing, segregating their chromosomes, or rearranging their membranes without a feeling of surprise and curiosity about the mechanisms that underlie these processes. Included with every copy of Molecular Biology of the Cell, Fourth Edition, the Cell Biology Interactive CD-ROM provides students and instructors with a powerful tool for understanding and appreciating the remarkable dynamics of the microscopic and molecular world.

"Law Of The Order" is a CD that is hard to categorize. This isn’t your typical hair metal. It isn’t flamboyant enough to be glam (but they sure tried to market the band that way). This is more of a straight forward hard rock cd, and a very good one at that. "Law Of The Order" is one of those CD’s that you truly need to hear to appreciate. There are several really good songs on this disc including Paris Calling, Somebody’s Falling, Get Some Strange, Passion to Ashes, and an excellent jamming cover of the Fleetwood Mac tune, The Chain.

In the picturesque Bavarian town of Oberammergau, two friends, Markus and Thomas, are using the instructions found in an old Jewish diary to gain access to a WW II underground military base formerly codenamed: CERUSIT. Used by the Nazis as a secret research institute, there are shrouded rumors to this day about the lost gold of the Third Reich. The entrance to the cave system, however, lies right within the restricted area of a U.S. military base.. the first of many problems Markus and Thomas will have to face. Equipped only with a two-way-radio and a 3D camera, Markus penetrates the restricted area and manages to locate the entrance to the underground facility and later, the secret base. But what Markus does not know is that through his efforts, he has not only drawn the attention of the US Military.. but something else that has managed to survive in exile for over 70 years without luxuries… especially food. For Markus, it has now become race of life and death.

Fighting for a Generation: 20 Years of the UFC is an oral and visual documentary on the two decade rise of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Over 60 interviews were conducted over a 4 month period to let the viewer truly understand how the UFC has become what it is today. From the early days, dealing with political pressure and financial hardships to successfully building a worldwide brand, the UFC has gone through struggles that no other sports franchise has faced only to come out on the winning end. With the 20 year anniversary of UFC 1 occurring in November 2013, the UFC wanted to celebrate in a way that would give the fans an inside look at the meteoric rise of one of the top sports franchises in the world.

Over four million Vietnamese died in what one side calls the American War and the other side calls the Vietnam War. A war so brutal, that it has been described as their 'own' Third World War by the Vietnamese. In this rare instance, it is those who lost the war that have almost exclusively written its history. Whilst countless stories have been told from the American point of view, most often reducing the Vietnamese to faceless shadows very little has been heard from the other side. The official Vietnamese line meanwhile continues to issue purely one dimensional propaganda. The Face of the Enemy is a unique documentary, in that it tells the story of the Vietnamese that fought in "The American" war, in their own words. In the film the veterans have the chance, often for the first time, to recall the experiences that transformed and changed their lives. A film that has inspired the filmmakers is Peter Davis' "Hearts and Minds" from 1975. A documentary, whose truth and relevance has been merely re-strengthened with the passage of time. The title of that film refers to a speech given by Lyndon B. Johnson in which he proclaimed the escalation of the American involvement in the Vietnam War. English subtitles hard coded to the film

In 1985, Gregory Gibson was sent a handwritten journal discovered by a small-time book dealer in rural Indiana. It turned out to be a young officer’s account of an 1825 naval expedition dispatched to the Pacific with orders to apprehend the perpetrators of the Globe mutiny. The mutiny was notorious as the goriest crime in American maritime history, involving hatchet murders, stabbings, shootings, and a shipboard lynching. The long-lost journal provided the first eyewitness account of the fate of the mutineers, and of the innocent men left at the mercy of the tattooed islanders who adopted and enslaved them.
