Age-Related Adverse Inflammatory and Metabolic Changes Begin Early in Adulthood.
(The journals of gerontology. Series A, Biological sciences and medical sciences, 2018-05-22)
Aging is characterized by deleterious immune and metabolic changes, but the onset of these changes is unknown. We measured immune and metabolic biomarkers in adults beginning at age 30. To our knowledge, this is the first ...
Mark Twain in China
Looking at Twain in various Chinese contexts—his response to events involving the American Chinese community and to the Chinese across the Pacific, his posthumous journey through translation, and China's reception of ...
Carbon Market Cooperation in Northeast Asia: Assessing Challenges and Overcoming Barriers
China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea are emerging as major players in the global carbon trading landscape. As Northeast Asia’s biggest industrial economies, these three countries are connected through deep commercial ...
LOCAL APPLICATION OF D-LACTIC ACID DIMER IS SELECTIVELY CYTOTOXIC WHEN APPLIED TO CANCER CELLS
The experimental data supports the cytotoxic mechanism of D-lactic acid dimer via the Warburg effect.
NGOs and the effectiveness of interventions
(WIDER Working Paper, 2018-05-31)
Interventions in remote, rural settings face high transaction costs. We develop a model of household decision-making to evaluate how non-governmental organizations (NGOs) address these implementation-related challenges and ...
