My name is Kersti Börjars and I am a professor of Linguistics at the University of Manchester. Together with one of our students, Alex Webb, I have put together these web pages about language. ‘Linguistics’ you may wonder, what on earth is that?! Well, sometimes the word ‘linguist’ is used for people who are good at learning foreign languages, but that is not the way we use it here. Linguistics is the study of language – that includes things like the history of language, the meaning and structure of words and phrases, what sounds are used in languages and what the similarities and differences are between all of the 5000-6000 languages in the world! How did you become a linguist? For most people it is a little accidental how they end up in a particular job. I grew up in Sweden and when I was at school there I liked a lot of different subjects. In fact, asking questions about the language you hear around you is a really good place to start studying.

July 9, 2005 **Read the correction to this Information Alert** A study that followed 12,829 children ages 9 to 14 years found that weight gain was associated with drinking reduced-fat milk but that drinking full-fat milk was not associated with weight gain.

The study was published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, June 2005. Farmers have known for decades that pigs fed whole milk stay lean and do not get fat; but pigs fed skimmed milk gain weight easily. Now we have scientific confirmation that this seeming paradox holds true for humans as well. Butterfat in whole milk, particularly butterfat in milk from cows that graze outside on green pasture, provides unique nutrients that support thyroid function and help the body put on muscle rather than fat.

The abstract of the study is below: Switzerland Mountain Coaster is Your Next Travel Dream. You have to choose.
