At the start of her committee year, Adinda van Doorn had planned on taking a few courses too. But it soon became apparent that she had no time for such things. Full of enthusiasm, the 22-year-old chair of the ESV study association and her board have gone all out to make it a great year for all members.

More human twins are being born than ever before, according to a study by researchers at Radboud University, University of Oxford and the French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED). One in every 42 children born is now a twin, an increase by a third compared to the 1980s. The researchers’ findings are published today in Human Reproduction, one of the world’s leading reproductive medicine journals.
