A three page, 60-item survey on life satisfaction and social, psychological, occupational, spiritual and physical health was completed by 288 adults employed at a private business in southwest Ohio. Results indicated a significant, positive relationship between life satisfaction and each of the health dimensions. Life satisfaction also directly correlated with overall health. A regression analysis found social health and psychological health to be the strongest predictors of life satisfaction, accounting for 37.8% and 30.5% of the variance, respectively, future events.

    The haulout patterns of five adult and two juvenile crabeater seals (Lobodon carcinophaga) were documented from February to December 1995 in three areas of the Antarctic. The longest haulout event was 19.2 h (mean=7.9, median=7.8); the longest in-water event was 85.8 h (mean=15.1, median=14.2)....
