But this content is actually a rehash of one that appeared in Nature three weeks hence. As anyone who functions for scientific journals understands, that is par for the program. Articles that come in Nature and Technology routinely come out somewhat modified in newspapers just like the Times. And Perhaps that’s reasonable enough. But my complaint here is that nowhere in the article is the acknowledgement that Character first reported the tale. I’ll allow irony wash more than you. P.S. I particularly like the picture that ran with the proper times article of the snake. Very eye-catching.. Biopiracy=stealing understanding without proper settlement or credit in exchange. Today’s NY Times posesses fascinating tale about Marc van Roosmalen, a primatologist credited with discovering five species of monkeys and a new primate genus, who has been sentenced to nearly 16 years in a Brazilian jail.To our knowledge, no prior study has evaluated glucose levels as a time-varying phenomenon. Most of the previous studies used categorical publicity variables, such as the absence or presence of diabetes or normal versus impaired glucose tolerance. In contrast, we used a hierarchical Bayesian model to build up a time-different estimate of sugar levels . This approach enabled us to incorporate clinically acquired measurements of random and fasting blood sugar and glycated hemoglobin in one composite estimate of glucose exposure.
