Why do quick brown foxes jump over lazy dogs anyway? From a sociological perspective, it's useful to think about our judgmental attitude to laziness and speed and the way we theorise about sport.

Ui, this is a new text block. I wonder how far we can push this. \[\frac{1.5x + pi^2}{2 \exp{x} * \sin(x)}\] Is this going to be pretty? Hm, I selected Latex but this does not seem to fill in the neat maths symbols. Also it’s eating my dollar signs. sadface

The formula in Table 1 demonstrates how we think about we conceptualise the two paradigms of speed and effort as expressed by laziness.

This is my contribution to our group authored article. I hope I can convert all my collaborators to an online platform so I never have to email a Word doc again.

When we reflect on the vast diversity of the plants and animals which have been cultivated, and which have varied during all ages under the most different climates(Rosenstein 2008) and treatment, I think we are driven to conclude that this greater variability is simply due to our domestic productions having been raised under conditions of life not so uniform as, and somewhat different from, those to which the parent-species have been exposed under nature.

There is, also, I think, some probability in the view propounded by Thomas Andrew Knight (Wikipedia), that this variability may be partly connected with excess of food. It seems pretty clear that

  1. organic beings must be exposed during several generations to the new conditions of life to cause any appreciable amount of variation;

  2. that when the organisation has once begun to vary, it generally continues to vary for many generations.

I wrote an important paper on Roman veterans (Tweedie 2012)

There is a well-measured constraint on YMCs that we can apply to predict the upper limit radii for the MPCs. Recent high resolution imagining and spectral studies of YMCs have shown these systems to be in or close to equilibrium at ages of ∼1.5≤3 years. (Darwin 1900)

This implies that the YMCs must have gone through \cite {beness_scipio_2005} at least one full crossing time before their presently observed age. Using the crossing time equation, tcross=(GMr−3vir)−1/2, and fixing the crossing time to 1 Myr we can solve for t, which is only dependent on the mass. (Arce 1999)

For the same clump mass range mentioned for rΩ above, rvir spans from 5.1 to 23.8 pc. This is an important aspect to keep in mind as there is no evidence for YMCs to have a proportionality between mass and radius. (Bedini 2013)

I wrote a paper on the 'strategy' by which nursing aimed to become recognised by the public as a profession, rather than an 'occupation' or a 'calling'. (Grehan 2004) Valuing women's work takes longer than it should
