followed meticulously in most newspapers, from which I quote El Reforma: Dangerous corpses in Mexico’s drug war 165 Elements of the marines started to mobilise inside and outside the residence before the removal of the corpse of Beltrán Leyva. The presence of elements from the marine force increased in the zone, in addition to the arrival shortly before of armed vehicles from the Mexican Army, which had to protect the area.2 To my initial surprise, it apparently required many heavily armed soldiers to transfer the corpse to the forensic laboratory.

control and govern nature. The dominance of theological world-views ceded considerable ground to secular intellectual concepts. Latin disappeared as the language of elite discourse. Increased educational provision provided access to sources of knowledge that were previously unattainable to all but a few. A market for books and newspapers, for journals and weeklies developed rapidly.1 More and more people lower down the social scale became increasingly involved in a literary culture. Accordingly, the ‘common’ people began to learn from their history. They were taught new

observes (Darnton 2004). Paris at this time was abuzz with sound, life, talk, and a continually ongoing exchange of information. Songs were sung and poems recited, gossip passed from one person to another, rumours were spread, and the few newspapers in existence were read aloud (Darnton 1997, 2000, 2005, 2010). News distribution was a natural part of the many occupations of everyday life.4 In order to find out what was happening, people would go to so-called nouvellistes de bouche, whose task it was to spread oral news. Darnton translates this French expression into

in Relations of Private Life (1848–51), Sensational Trials: or, Causes Célèbres in High Life (1865). The public interest in trials was also reflected, and probably enhanced, by newspapers, and these provide a valuable resource to scholars less interested in particular ‘celebrated’ trials. In the late eighteenth century newspapers such as The Times provided limited coverage of important trials, but in the nineteenth century this coverage grew, and particularly after the abolition of stamp and paper taxes in the 1850s the number of newspapers exploded.

, ‘In adulthood, viral infection will just be transient, whereas in childhood it produces permanent carriers.’ 51 Dr J. H. Kim offered a similar view to the KMA's newspaper in 1985. According to him, current policy would require additional purchase of foreign vaccines, which would cost an extra trillion won ($100 million). Consequently, the vaccination of infants below the age of 3 was more practical and efficient. 52 Dr

this, what does one do?5 This blog post was mentioned in the web edition of the local newspaper which chose to follow up the story and do two interviews, one with the coach Anders and one with the tournament manager, who supported the coach’s story. They both felt that what had happened was unforgivable. Things like this must not happen. You do not abandon your child in another town, having taken him to task and told him to find his way home in the winter cold wearing nothing but his match clothes. That is child abuse. ‘I feel sorry for the kid who has to come home

Introduction and method Great star what was thy happiness if thou shineth for no one? (Friedrich Nietzsche, 1888: 5)1 ‘Today is Freedom day’ thundered the headline in the Independent, a British newspaper, on 1 May 1997. The perplexing headline was followed by a no less mystifying quote: ‘The English people believes itself to be free: it is gravely mistaken; it is free only during the election of MPs; as soon as the Members are elected the members are enslaved.’ The quote was followed by the name J-.J. Rousseau. On the day when the Labour Party was about to win

and wheels and springs that drive those two simple hands. From the table of contents, this work might first appear as an overflow of disparate case studies set in places as diverse as a train station, a newspaper office, and the guts of a climate-change model. What could possibly connect them? Overflow turns out to be a multitool for finding hidden and unsuspected connections, unique insights into the workings behind everyday life.
