Arachne Arachne is the central Object database of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) and the Archaeological Institute of the University of Cologne, administrated by Reinhard Foertsch. Arachne is intended to provide archaeologists and Classicists with a free internet research tool for quickly searching hundreds of thousands of records on objects and their attributes. This combines an ongoing process of digitizing traditional documentation (stored on media which are both threatened by decay and largely unexplored) with the production of new digital object and graphic data. Wherever possible, Arachne follows a paradigm of highly structurized object-metadata which is mapped onto the CIDOC-CRM, to address machine-readable metadata strategies of the Semantic Web. This »structured world« of Arachne requires high efforts in time and money and therefore is only possible for privileged areas of data.

Science Vs. Politics – Australia’s Water Fluoridation Debate As countries around the world continue to ban their water fluoridation programs citing adverse health effects, Journalist Kate Johnston speaks to Independent Politician Mark Aldridge and Independent Film Maker Jaya Drolma, to find out why Australia is lagging behind.

Selecting Particpants & Conducting Research Most research within the social sciences, and that includes Deaf Studies, is conducted with people. These people who are involved in research studies are sometimes called subjects. Nowadays, this is considered to be a disempowering term, and has been replaced by participants. This is more than a politically correct alteration. You should view those upon (or with) whom you conduct research to be participating in the research enterprise.
