A comparison of stellar populations in galaxy spheroids across a wide range of Hubble types
We present line-strengths and kinematics from the central regions of 32 galaxies with Hubble types ranging from E to Sbc. Spectral indices, based on the Lick system, are measured in the optical and
THE MASS-METALLICITY GRADIENT RELATION OF EARLY-TYPE GALAXIES*
We present a newly observed relation between galaxy mass and radial metallicity gradients of early-type galaxies. Our sample of 51 early-type galaxies encompasses a comprehensive mass range from
THE CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF MILKY WAY AND M31 GLOBULAR CLUSTERS. I. A COMPARATIVE STUDY
A comparative analysis is performed between high-quality integrated spectral indices of 30 M31 globular clusters, 20 Milky Way globular clusters, and a sample of field and cluster elliptical
J-PAS: The Javalambre-Physics of the Accelerated Universe Astrophysical Survey
The Javalambre-Physics of the Accelerated Universe Astrophysical Survey (J-PAS) is a narrow band, very wide field Cosmological Survey to be carried out from the Javalambre Observatory in Spain with a
Spatially resolved spectroscopy of early-type galaxies over a range in mass
Long-slit spectra have been obtained with the Keck telescope for a sample of 11 early-type galaxies covering a wide range in luminosity and hence mass. Rotation velocity and velocity dispersions,
Agnotology : the making and unmaking of ignorance
TLDR
This book discusses Agnotology as a Strategy in the Debate over Genetically Engineered Organisms, and theorizing Ignorance, and its role in that debate.

TLDR
The cigarette is the deadliest artefact in the history of human civilisation, and the scale of the epidemic is so large today that it will rise to nearly 2 million deaths from lung cancer per year by the 2020s or 2030s, if consumption rates decline in the interim.
Bitter pill.
Spatially resolved kinematics and stellar populations of brightest cluster and group galaxies
We present an examination of the kinematics and stellar populations of a sample of three brightest group galaxies (BGGs) and three brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) in X-ray groups and clusters. We
Ages and metallicities of Hickson compact group galaxies
ABSTRACT Hickson Compact Groups (HCGs) constitute an interesting extreme in the range ofenvironments in which galaxies are located, as the space density of galaxies in thesesmall groups are otherwise
