the world’s one hope

Is oppression as old as the moss around ponds? The moss around ponds is not avoidable. Perhaps everything I see is natural, and I am sick and want to remove what cannot be removed? I have read songs of the Egyptians, of their men who built the pyramids. They complained of their loads and asked when oppression would cease. That’s four thousand years ago. Oppression, it would seem, is like the moss and unavoidable.When a child is about to be run down by a car, one pulls it on to the pavement.

Whether it be at work or at home … let alone what decisions to make first when it comes to opening up your computer! And I would guess that most of us decide to do a bit of each and/ or attempt to do many things at the same time – makes me tired just writing about it!So hence we are pulled from pillar to post – and back again.…

She took a good look at herself and thought - “what a strange object is this?!” This experience stimulated her to paint her own body.“Your own body is familiar and strange at the same time. For me it is bizarre that on one hand I feel comfortable in my body, while on the other hand I have no awareness…

ancient plant knowledge used to develop medicinal compounds

KNOWLEDGE from the world’s oldest continuous culture will be used to develop medicinal compounds from plants found in the Australian outback. The Australian Bioactive Compounds Centre, jointly established by the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia, will apply Aboriginal knowledge of outback plants and their traditional medicinal uses.This will complement the centre’s existing ecological strengths to help identify compounds with potential commercial application in medicine, veterinary science and agriculture.Initial research will focus on compounds that inhibit insect attacks on plant crops; veterinary products that have antibiotic, anti-parasitic and anti-cancer properties; and topical human anti-melanoma treatment.Centre Co-Director Professor Philip Weinstein from the University of Adelaide said the centre’s expertise in arid zone plant biology and ecology, its experience in screening for bioactive compounds, capabilities in chemistry and understanding…
