The DNA Change That Accounts For White Skin. Nov 15 2012 By Rick Weiss Washington Post Staff Writer Friday, December 16, 2005 Scientists said yesterday that they have discovered a tiny genetic mutation that largely explains the first appearance of white skin in humans tens of thousands of years ago, a finding that helps solve one of biology’s most enduring mysteries and illuminates one of humanity’s greatest sources of strife.

The DNA Change That Accounts For White Skin

The work suggests that the skin-whitening mutation occurred by chance in a single individual after the first human exodus from Africa, when all people were brown-skinned. That person’s offspring apparently thrived as humans moved northward into what is now Europe, helping to give rise to the lightest of the world’s races. Leaders of the study, at Penn State University, warned against interpreting the finding as a discovery of “the race gene.” In fact, several scientists said, the new work shows just how small a biological difference is reflected by skin color.

UNFCCC COP 21 Preparations and Challenges

The meeting will mark a decisive stage in negotiations on the future international agreement on a post-2020 regime, and will, as agreed in Durban, adopt the major outlines of that regime. By the end of the meeting, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, all the nations of the world, including the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases, will be bound by a universal agreement on climate. In order for the agreement to come into effect in 2020, at the end of the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, subsequent COP meetings will work on finalizing its details.

The Reverend Thomas Robert Malthus FRS (13 February 1766 – 29 December 1834[1]) was an English cleric and scholar, influential in the fields of political economy and demography.[2] Malthus himself used only his middle name Robert.[3] His An Essay on the Principle of Population observed that sooner or later population will be checked by famine and disease, leading to what is known as a Malthusian catastrophe.

Thomas Robert Malthus

He wrote in opposition to the popular view in 18th-century Europe that saw society as improving and in principle as perfectible.[4] He thought that the dangers of population growth precluded progress towards a utopian society: "The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man".[5] As a cleric, Malthus saw this situation as divinely imposed to teach virtuous behaviour.[6] Malthus wrote: Malthus placed the longer-term stability of the economy above short-term expediency.

Nouvelles règles en vue pour les banques - Banque - E24.fr

Le comité de Bâle de supervision bancaire a approuvé jeudi une série de mesures destinées à améliorer la stabilité du secteur d'ici la fin 2012. Il ne s'agit cependant que d'un "document de consultation" et non d'un texte final, avait rappelé mercredi une porte-parole de la Banque des règlements internationaux (BRI) à Bâle, qui héberge notamment les réunions du comité. Pour le comité, fondé en 1974 et composé des gouverneurs de 27 banques centrales mondiales, ces mesures doivent permettre "de répondre aux leçons de la crise en matière de régulation, de supervision et de gestion des risques des grandes banques".

"Les propositions concernant les capitaux et les liquidités vont renforcer les banques et créer un système bancaire et financier plus sain", a souligné le président du comité, Nout Wellink, par ailleurs président de la banque centrale néerlandaise.
