Figure 2.41A The cervical, thoracic, and lumber vertebrae were positioned for a superior-inferior (SI) projection. Small pieces of foam (A) were employed to stabilize certain vertebra and ensure that the vertebral bodies were parallel to the film plane. Note that the number of the specimen (B) in lead numerals was placed on the cassette along with a marker (C) to indicate the right side.

The plant growth unit investigated the use of specimens of direct relevance to the treatment of cancer and malaria, as well as those that could be employed in the lumber and paper industries. Peter Wong, a researcher from the University of Colorado, provided wheat in the hope that the plants could produce nodules that might convert nitrogen from the air for self-fertilisation. ''Congress wants to know when the space programme can be self-supportive,'' said Wong. ''They are spending lots of money and want to know how we can use space for commercial purposes.''
Of even greater significance, potentially, was developing a clearer understanding of how such pathways are controlled at genetic levels. Such knowledge would allow us to manipulate or genetically engineer plants with desired metabolic traits,'' Heyenga added. For example, this information could be applied to the lumber industry in the production of trees with a low lignin content, greatly reducing the cost of paper production both economically and environmentally.'' Conversely, it could also be applied to improving timber quality in fast-growing softwoods, thus reducing the need to harvest slow-growing hardwoods.
The story was accompanied by a photograph of Jerry Crew holding a plaster cast of a very large human-like footprint. Jerry's story began on August 27 of that same year. On the morning of that day Crew went to work as a heavy-equipment operator employed in the construction of a lumber road in the wilderness near the Oregon border. He was
Leopold had enlisted the help of an adventurer named Henry Morton Stanley, a former staff writer for the New York Herald, already famous for his publicity stunt of finding the lost missionary Dr. David Livingstone. Stanley set off on a five-year journey to sign land treaties with local chiefs across central Africa, promising liquor, clothing, and some toiletries in exchange for lumber and ivory, in addition to the limitless physical labor of the natives. Within twenty years, Stanley had claimed for King Leopold an estate that was seventy-five times larger that the nation of Belgium. He called it Congo Free State, a corruption of Kongo, the name of one of the ancient native kingdoms that had signed itself away. Leopold promised to run this magnificent African cake for the charity and benefit of the natives. The Congo instead became a gigantic forced-labor camp. The Africans were threatened with brutal beatings and the amputation of their hands and even beheadings if they failed to...
