Students at that school, she found, “learned more, enjoyed mathematics more and progressed to higher mathematics levels.” These findings have been supported by other studies in the field, which show that “low-ability” students performed better in “ heterogeneous ” settings, where they learn math with students of differing abilities, than when they were placed in a tracked group. Middle- and high-performing students performed equally as well in both environments.
Generalising about economic or political matters in Latin America is always challenging given that this is a particularly heterogeneous region. Still, “Lessons from the land of high inflation” (February 18th) tried just that when it claimed that governments in the region are questioning the independence of central banks. I would like to point out that the Chilean government fully values the 33-year-long independence of the Central Bank of Chile.
The heterogeneous social fabric of Indian cities was violently transformed, with urban spaces reorganised along religious lines. The memory of those violent encounters continues to inform the logic of spatial segregation in many Indian cities up to this day.
We’d rather we weren’t so terrible, but we’d also like to think, even if it means fooling ourselves, that we might in time become less terrible—and either way, an enthusiastic embrace of our extinction would surely be taking things a bit far. Or would it? This is the question that animates The Revolt Against Humanity…It charts a scattered and heterogeneous constellation of radical thinkers, all of whom share a conviction, in one form or another, that the end of our human era is close at hand, and that such an event, far from being a catastrophe to be evaded or postponed, should in fact be welcomed … Kirsch makes no attempt to argue that either of these vectors of apocalypse has penetrated to the center of our culture, or that they are likely to. But he does note that extreme apocalyptic prophesies have changed the course of history.
Compared to Aurora, the prototypes Intel built for the US DoD under its State-of-the-Art Heterogeneous Integrated Packaging (SHIP) program are nowhere near as complex. However, they do take advantage of many of the same technologies underpinning the super.
Said Waterman: “The females were able to have normal-size litters — they breed with more than a single male — but you have to think about it: If this were to happen on a regular basis, which potentially these sort of temperature extremes climate change could make more common, you’re reducing genetic heterogeneity . There’s not as much variation because half the males are not able to breed successfully.”
Yet while “profound autism” clearly missed the mark (Lord now acknowledges it may not have been the best term), the idea of introducing new subgroups to break up what really is a very heterogeneous spectrum could be helpful for both support services and research if it can be done sensitively, argue some experts.
"There's a heterogeneity of manifestations of long Covid," Dr. Harlan Krumholz, a professor of medicine at Yale University and clinical long Covid researcher, said. "We really need to be able to map this and organize it in a way that we can understand it."
Environmental factors are also thought to impact the individual at random - regardless of their family, social and professional conditions. Last but not least, it is assumed that the pathological processes at the root of the disease are the same for all, when we know that all diseases are very heterogeneous .
If these pictures appear to have little in common beyond Dillon’s predilection for them, their heterogeneity is in part his point. He is intrigued by the obstinate opacity of affinity, which is so misty as to defy definition … Dillon’s forays into what he calls ‘the mundane miracle of looking’ are both impenetrably personal and so rigorously attentive to the external world that the critic sometimes seems to dissolve into the art. He has an affinity, in effect, for affinities—attractions so pronounced that, far from sequestering us in our private passions, they briefly annihilate us.”
His lively new collection, Affinities is a compendium of pictures, mostly photographs or stills from films, printed on otherwise blank pages and followed by bouts of commentary. They have been amassed in a single volume not because they are the work of one artist or the products of a single style, but for the simple reason that Dillon is drawn to each of them … If these pictures appear to have little in common beyond Dillon’s predilection for them, their heterogeneity is in part his point.
