We need to make clear the connection between animal research and a grandmother's hip replacement, a father's bypass operation, a baby's vaccinations, and even a pet's shots.

No clear-cut distinction can be drawn between professionals and amateurs in science: exceptions can be found to any rule.
Nevertheless, the word "amateur" does carry a connotation that the person concerned is not fully integrated into the scientific community and, in particular, may not fully share its values.

There exists a social and cultural disconnect between journalists and their readers, which helps explain why the "standard templates" of the newsroom seem alien to many readers.

The astonishing distrust of the news media isn't rooted in inaccuracy or poor reportorial skills but in the daily clash of world views between reporters and their readers.

Nowadays the number of births, like the age of death, has become average.
Most of us have roughly the same number of offspring.
Again, differences between people and the opportunity for natural selection to take advantage of it have diminished.

Certainly their descriptions of battles are confused.
But it is a little upsetting to read in the explanatory notes that a certain line describes a fight between a Turkish and a Bulgarian officer on a bridge off which they both fall into the river — and then to find that the line consists of the noise of their falling and the weights of the officers: "Pluff! Pluff! A hundred and eighty-five kilograms."

"Businesses need to feel they can trust the pathway between them and the supplier," says senior analyst Blane Erwin of Forrester Research.

But push technology has earned the contempt of many Web users.
Online culture thinks highly of the notion that the information flowing onto the screen comes there by specific request.
Once commercial promotion begins to fill the screen uninvited, the distinction between the Web and television fades.

Banking on the confusion between educational and vocational reasons for brining computers into schools, computer-ed advocates often emphasize the job prospects of graduates over their educational achievement.

But, for a small group of students, professional training might be the way to go since well-developed skills, all other factors being equal, can be the difference between having a job and not.

There is, as Robert Rubin, the treasury secretary, says, a "disjunction" between the mass of business anecdote that points to a leap in productivity and the picture reflected by the statistics.

Science has long had an uneasy relationship with other aspects of culture.
Think of Galileo's 17th-century trial for his rebelling belief before the Catholic Church or poet William Blake's harsh remarks against the mechanistic worldview of Isaac Newton.
The schism between science and the humanities has, if anything, deepened in this century.

Africa and South America, for example, are moving away from each other as new material is injected into the sea floor between them.

And, of course, speaking a language does not necessarily mean that someone understands social and cultural patterns.
Visitors who fail to "translate" cultural meanings properly often draw wrong conclusions.
For example, when an American uses the word "friend", the cultural implications of the word may be quite different from those it has in the visitor's language and culture.
It takes more than a brief encounter on a bus to distinguish between courteous convention and individual interest.

Levin would not comment on the debate last week, but there were signs that the chairman was backing off his hard-line stand, at least to some extent.
During the discussion of rock singing verses at last month's stockholders' meeting.
Levin asserted that "music is not the cause of society's ills" and even cited his son, a teacher in the Bronx, New York, who uses rap to communicate with students.
