"I feel like I've really done the right things to get my life back in order," Jones says. "This win on Saturday, it's going to allow the fans to almost forgive and forget a little bit about that hit-and-run car accident and start to get excited about my future. Getting this belt back is just going to set everything in the right direction. People are going to remember why I'm an exciting fighter. People are going to remember why I'm one of the biggest pay-per-view draws in the sport. I think people forgot about the things that make me special."
The prevalence of performance-enhancing drugs in sports has increased in the 43 years since Mirkin, a physician and sports medicine expert, handed out his survey. The desire to win is, naturally, ever present while, at the same time, new research and technologies have expanded the number of options for cheating your way onto the podium. For example, today's performance-enhancing drugs come in many forms other than a pill ("the cream and the clear," a testosterone-based ointment described by accused athletes in court testimony, comes to mind), but the results they produce are still highly sought after. Professional cycling has been repeatedly rocked by revelations and allegations of drug use. Every two years as the Olympic Games begin, we hear about athletes using or at least being tested for performance-enhancing drugs. Major League Baseball is still trying to repair its image from the steroid era. And the list goes on.
The Malayan sun bear is understudied, and little conservation action has been targeted at it (3) . The Malayan sun bear has been listed on Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) since 1979, which prohibits international trade (5) , and the killing of the sun bear is prohibited under national wildlife protection laws, however, little enforcement of these laws occurs (3) (6) . The Malayan sun bear is part of an international captive breeding programme and has a Species Survival Program under the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (11) . More research is required as only recently have field studies started to investigate the basic biology, ecology, and behaviour of wild sun bears (6) . Conservation of sun bears needs to focus on protection of their forest habitat, proper management of these areas, strict enforcement of their legal status, minimizing human-bear conflict near forest areas, and halting trade in bear parts (6) .
