Shifting Baselines

The latest video from Randy Olson’s Shifting Baselines Ocean Media Project is here and highlights the differences between two sailors’ experiences: one describing his voyage in 1958 and one (the leader of the junk raft expedition) describing the exact same voyage but 50 years later. You can probably discern from the video title that the results aren’t pretty. Also, Andy Revkin has a more detailed post on the project at his New York Times Dot Earth Blog and will post a short interview with Olson later today…

    I’m going to bet that it’s usually the first reason that gets most peoples’ knickers in a twist. In this culture, women’s bodies exist mostly to please men. If they’re otherwise occupied, or not pleasing, they’re supposed to be kept private. The breasts of breastfeeding women are both–no wonder they’re so offensive.

    The authors found that the frequencies of allergic and IgE-associated allergic disease and sensitization were similar in the children who had received probiotic and those who’d gotten placebo. Although there appeared to be a preventive effect at age 2, there was none noted at age 5. Interestingly, in babies born by cesarean section, the researchers found less IgE-associated allergic disease in those who had received the probiotic.
