The environment of the laboratory cat can be restrictive and may impact their welfare. Enrichment is often provided to alleviate welfare impacts but is seldom assessed or validated for efficacy. This study investigated the effect of novel room furniture (a screen) on the expression of agonistic and affiliative behaviours and space utilisation amongst colony housed laboratory cats.

Secondly, the archaea have long been understood to be a lineage distinct from the bacteria, and to share a close relationship with the eukarya, particularly in their information processing systems. Recent discoveries suggest the eukarya arose from within the archaeal domain, and in particular from lineages related to the TACK superphylum and Lokiarchaea. Thus, archaeal DNA repair proteins and pathways can represent a useful model system.
Reforming K 12 education by basing school and teacher performance on test scores has become a highly debatable topic and the Obama administration’s attempts implement such a system on higher education has sparked even greater furor. Any national system would likely include metrics like graduation rates and student loan default rates. If assessments of what students learn are included at all, they would almost certainly be voluntary, an administration official said..
