Extractions: For this assignment, students write two 200-400 abstracts of technical/scientific articles, in order to "gain practical experience in technical writing, teamwork, and electronic communication and information retrieval." (Ed.) Teaching Strategies: Summaries Writing and using abstracts are important skills for people who work with the sources of technical information. You will be expected to write two abstracts for SCAS 190. Each one should cover an important article or scientific paper dealing with some aspect of sustainable agriculture. The instructional goals are for you to gain practical experience in technical writing, teamwork, and electronic communication and information retrieval. An abstract is a brief recapitulation of the contents of a larger piece of writing. Most are only 200 to 400 words long. Scientists routinely write abstracts as a part of their scientific papers, and these are used by librarians and other scientists as primary gateways to the technical literature. By reading an abstract, a person should be able to tell if it is worthwhile for them to read the whole article. Good abstracts are rich in facts so that new and useful details can be gleaned from the abstract itself. They also contain the main concepts (key words) of the article. Thus, a computerized search of abstracts is the main step in modern library/information research, and understanding how abstracts are written will help you use them effectively.

Extractions: T hroughout the world, laws have been introduced ostensibly to control vivisection and give animals some protection from the worst excesses of human cruelty: they have not succeeded on either count. Probably one of the earliest examples of this type of legislation was the United Kingdom Cruelty to Animals Act of 1876 which was promulgated at a time when only some 300-400 animal experiments were being performed each year. Far from "controlling" experimentation, the number of animal experiments being performed in the United Kingdom rose from hundreds to a staggering 5 million in one year. Vivisectors have proudly pointed to the effectiveness of U.K. and Canadian laws, although to those who do not have a vested interest in the continuation of this form of animal abuse, the loopholes and inadequacies of these laws are quite glaring. Inspectors of laboratories are always government appointees, and often former vivisectors. There are no random, unannounced inspections and, in fact, U.K. inspectors usually give 2-3 months notice of a proposed visit. All committees overseeing animal experimentation have a preponderance of animal experimenters. In response to public pressure and rising concern about animal experimentation, the NSW government enacted legislation in 1985 which is supposed to give some protection to laboratory animals. This Act is now under review. A Review Group has been set up
Extractions: Genetic Engineering is the heritable, directed alteration of an organism. A heritable alteration is a change that can be carried from one generation to the next. Genetic engineering is performed by modifying an organism's own DNA or introducing new DNA to perform desired functions. Biotechnology is a broader term than genetic engineering and includes non-genetic techniques to modify organisms. Genetic engineering is the most powerful and least understood tool for biotechnology.. Many of the same principles used in genetic engineering are involved in biotechnology Genetic Engineering involves DNA modifications. DNA is the genetic material in all known forms of life. DNA contains genes (just as a recipe book contains recipes) that give us many of our physical characteristics. However, we are not simply gene-based machines - the environment we are in also determines our traits. One of the challenges of genetic engineering is to determine how genes influence our traits and how to modify DNA to alter these traits. Genes affecting disorders such as alcoholism provide only a predisposition. Having the gene for alcoholism may make one more prone to alcoholism but does not guarantee that one will become alcoholic, nor does not having the gene mean one is immune.
Extractions: Introduction At noon on Jan. 19, 1993, William Jefferson Clinton was sworn in as the 42nd President of the U.S. A few hours later, the King County Health Department in Washington State issued the first warning linking consumption of undercooked hamburgers with an outbreak of E. coli O157:H7, sometimes known as hamburger disease. What came to be known as the Jack-in-the-Box outbreak eventually killed four young children and sickened over 700. These two events, more than any other, have dramatically changed the public discussion of food safety in North America, and certainly underscores the importance of industry-led efforts to manage food safety risks. The Jack-in-the-Box outbreak had all the elements of a dramatic story which catapulted it to the top of the public agenda at least in the U.S. Children were involved; the risk was relatively unknown and unfamiliar; and a sense of outrage developed in response to the inadequacy of the government inspection system and the identifiable target in Foodmaker Inc. (for a full accounting, see Powell et al., 1997). E. coli O157:H7 became the focus of Congressional debates on regulatory reform, tragic tales from bereaved parents, and the subject of inestigative journalism. More importantly, in the wake of Jack-in-the-Box, stories about microbial food safety began appearing more frequently and more prominently in American media (fig. 1).
