Few of these previous studies have had any age control; however there is some evidence that OSL ages based on the single aliquot regenerative dose (SAR) protocol may be subject to systematic age underestimation as samples approach saturation.In this study, the age of 12 luminescence samples from a chronologically well-constrained site dating to 450 ka from the Thames terrace sequence, southern Britain, was measured using SAR in order to test the performance of the method close to its upper age limit.Josh loved Mia’s wit; Mia delighted in Josh’s warmth and ready smile.Their relationship blossomed, but doubts crept up on both of them now and again.These results suggest that the early background subtraction method should be used when dating in the non-linear part of the growth curve as it provides a better separation of thermally unstable signals and represents a more convenient approach than curve fitting in well-behaved samples.On their first date, Mia and Josh talked as if they’d known each other for years.However, research carried out in nine nations proves the opposite.The more gender-unequal men’s personal attitudes, the more they prefer qualities in women such as youth and attractiveness; and the more gender-unequal women’s attitudes, the more they prefer qualities in men such as money and status.
Their argument is that women have a primeval urge to hang on to wealthy men to provide for their children during the long period of pregnancy and childrearing.
The characteristics, dose response and thermal stability of the OSL signal in these samples were assessed by investigating equivalent dose () as a function of stimulation time and component-resolved pulse annealing.
Despite the fact that the samples are dominated by the quartz fast component, these results showed that both the medium and slow components have lower stabilities than the fast component, but with the unstable medium component most affecting the initial part of the OSL signal used in dating.
Of course, sexism varies within each society, and a nation’s overall level of gender-equality doesn’t necessarily translate to gender-equal attitudes among individuals.
But if mating preferences are biologically predetermined, individual sexism shouldn’t have an impact.
Men, meanwhile, are mostly concerned about a woman’s fertility, for which beauty and youth serve as helpful cues.
