The Discovery of Penicillin
In this video segment adapted from A Science Odyssey, learn what led British researcher Alexander Fleming to the chance discovery of antibacterial properties of a mold extract he later named penicillin. After treating World War I battlefield casualties, Fleming began searching for compounds that would ward off infections in humans. Returning from vacation in the summer of 1928, he noticed that mold was partly covering one of the agar plates in which he had been growing bacteria, and that the mol
Using the Keirsey Temperament Sorter to Determine Communication Styles
The Keirsey Temperament Sorter is found on a commercial site that categorizes individuals into four types of temperaments labeled Guardian, Idealist, Rational, and Artisan, each of which has four Characters, based on the Meyers-Briggs typology. These temperaments differ somewhat from the Communication Styles used in most Personal Selling textbooks (Amiable, Expressive, Analytical, and Driver). However, the Keirsey Temperament Sorter allows students to determine their own temperaments through a s
