“Traditional investigations of the evolution of human social and political institutions trace their ancestry back to
nineteenth century social scientists such as Herbert Spencer, and have concentrated on the increase in socio-political complexity over time. More recent studies of cultural evolution have been explicitly informed by Darwinian evolutionary theory and focus on the transmission of cultural traits between individuals. These two approaches to investigating cultural change are often seen as incompatible. However, we argue that many of the defining features and assumptions of ‘Spencerian’ check details cultural evolutionary theory represent testable hypotheses that can and should be tackled within a broader ‘Darwinian’ framework. In this paper we apply phylogenetic comparative techniques to data from
Austronesian-speaking societies of Island South-East Asia and the Pacific to test hypotheses about the mode and tempo of human socio-political evolution. We find support for three ideas often associated Foretinib clinical trial with Spencerian cultural evolutionary theory: (i) political organization has evolved through a regular sequence of forms, (ii) increases in hierarchical political complexity have been more common than decreases, and (iii) political organization has co-evolved with the wider presence of hereditary social stratification.”
“We have investigated the effect of dc bias current IB on longitudinal magnetoimpedance
(MI) in amorphous microwire with helical anisotropy and experimentally demonstrated that, by changing the dc current IB, it is possible to considerably affect the MI dependence. We propose to use this effect in developing a longitudinal MI sensor that overcomes the drawbacks usually associated with the longitudinal MI-namely the impossibility to determine the direction of an external axial magnetic field HE and the low sensitivity near the zero-field point. We demonstrate Nirogacestat that a set of two measurements of longitudinal wire impedance with properly selected bias current IB allows determination of both the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field HE over an extended range, much higher than the sample anisotropy field. Additional features of the proposed method are the increased sensitivity and the detection of exceeding the operating range. (C) 2011 American Institute of Physics. [doi:10.1063/1.3657849]“
