Highway Occurs Early In Alzheimer's
A blockage of the movement of chemical supplies and signals within the tube-shaped, brain-to-body cellular highways called axons appears to occur much earlier than previously thought in the development of Alzheimer's disease, according to researchers at the School of Medicine.

Kimono In The Boardroom : The Invisible Evolution Of Japanese Women
Jean R. Renshaw

Japanese women are not typically thought of as managers. Jean Renshaw challenges that perception in this path-breaking book. Renshaw interviewed over 150 successful women managers of Japan, exploring family backgrounds, personal characteristics, socialization, professional experiences, and corporate cultures to discover the secrets of their success. Showing the reader where and how this "invisible evolution" is occurring, Renshaw surveys the history of Japanese women in management and reveals the potential of the rising female managerial class to change in profound ways the male-dominated culture of modern Japan.
