Congratulations to Professor Graeme Warren, UCD School of Archaeology's Head of School, on his co-editorship (with Bill Finlayson) of "The Diversity of Hunter Gatherer Pasts" -
This edited book of papers explores hunter-gatherer societies and their diverse pasts around the world. Its authors and their papers investigate the extent of variation amongst hunting and gathering peoples, past and present and the considerable analytical challenges presented by this diversity. This problem is especially important in archaeology, where increasing empirical evidence illustrates ways of life that are not easily encompassed within the range of variation recognised in the contemporary world of surviving hunter-gatherers.
Put simply, how do past hunter-gatherers fit into our understandings of hunter-gatherers? Furthermore, given the inevitable archaeological reliance on analogy, it is important to ask whether conceptions of hunter-gatherers based on contemporary societies restrict our comprehension of past diversity and of how this changes over the long term.
Discussion of hunter-gatherers shows them to be varied and flexible, yet they have often been seen as static and without history. It is often said that the study of hunter-gatherers can provide insight into past forms of social organisation and behaviour; unfortunately too often it has limited our understandings of these societies.
In contrast, contributors here explore past hunter-gather diversity over time and space to provide critical perspectives on general models of ‘hunter-gatherers’ and attempt to provide new perspectives on hunter-gatherer societies from the greater diversity present in the past.

American lawyer and judge Benjamin Cardozo was born on this date in 1870. He attended Columbia Law School without obtaining a degree and was called to the New York Bar in 1891. He practised law until 1913 when he was elected to New York Supreme Court, rapidly progressing to the New York Court of Appeals, on which he served until 1932 (as Chief Judge from 1927 to 1932. He was an Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court from 1932 until his death, being considered one of the liberal 'Three Musketeers' (along with Louis Brandeis and Harlan Fiske Stone).
As a judge, particularly in his time on the NY Court of Appeals he had a major influence on the development of private law in the USA—for example, in the development of liability in negligence for defective products. Cardozo was a co-founder of the American Law Institute. His views on the nature of a judge's role were most famously expressed in his Storrs Lectures at Yale University in 1921, which were the basis of his book 'The Nature of the Judicial Process'.
Benjamin Nathan Cardozo (May 24, 1870 – July 9, 1938) was an American jurist who served on the New York Court of Appeals and later as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Cardozo is remembered...

The UCD HIV Molecular Research Group have announced the inaugural HMRG European HIV Seminar will take place on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th June 2017 at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital. Hosted by Dr Paddy Mallon and Dr Aoife Cotter, this two day meeting has the theme ‘Working Towards Healthier Aging in HIV’. As the life expectancy of people living with HIV (PLWH) approaches that of their HIV-uninfected peers, HIV-health care providers are managing conditions previously outside the normal scope of infectious disease clinicians, such as cardiovascular, metabolic, renal and bone diseases, all of which contribute to a more frail phenotype within this population. This meeting brings together a distinguished panel of international speakers aligned with local experts who have been at the forefront of important advances in research into ageing in HIV. The meeting will be spread over two days of plenary sessions covering both important clinical and pathogenesis topics relevant to ageing in HIV, which will foster excellent discussion between participants and offer networking opportunities. This meeting aims to provide those involved in HIV care an opportunity to update and broaden their knowledge in relation to management of ageing in people living with HIV. The meeting will be held in the historic Mater Misericordiae University Hospital campus close to the many enjoyable sites of Dublin, a delightful city to visit in early Summer. There is no charge to attend this event and CPD points will be available for those in attendance.

#IrishMed Wednesday, 17th May 2017 at 10pm GMT International Clinical Trials Day is held on the 20th May each year since 2005 to commemorate the famous clinical trial by Scottish naval surgeon, Dr James Lind in 1747. Faced with the dilemma of which of a number of proposed treatments for scurvy to use, Lind compared six treatments in what is recognised as the first prospective controlled clinical trial.
Clinical Trials have become the bedrock on which modern medicine has been built. Before a Medicine can be adopted into routine use, it must be shown to be safe and effective. Clinical trials are used to demonstrate that there is a clear, reproducible benefit of the proposed treatment over the existing regime.
Clinical Trials are essential to curative and preventative medicine as well as to evidence-based public health. They are undertaken against a specific clinical protocol and managed to the highest regulatory and ethical standards. The results of every clinical trial – positive or negative - should be made publicly available.
Clinical trials rely on the generous participation by healthy volunteers and patients as well as the support of the general public. While we talk a lot in Medicine about clinical trials, we thought mark International Clinical Trials Day 2017 by reflecting on some of the practicalities of clinical trials and what it means to be a participant.
Co-host for this Twitter Chat will be Dr Peter Doran, Scientific Director of the UCD Clinical Research Centre, Ireland's leading academic-led clinical research facility based at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and St Vincent's University Hospital.
