3.3 How others see us

The relative nature of poverty is an old theme in social science. Adam Smith, the eighteenth century writer who is often regarded as the founding father of economics, put it this way: ‘By necessaries I understand not only the commodities that are indispensably necessary for the support of life, but whatever the custom of the country renders it indecent for creditable people, even the lowest orders, to be without’ (Smith, 1776, quoted in Sen, 1981).

Ideas of what it is to be poor are

3.2 The principles of scanning probe microscopes

Scanning probe microscopy is a term that is applied to a set of imaging methods based on a common element: a fine stylus. In many ways, what scanning probe microscopes do is similar to what a gramophone does. A gramophone stylus scans a spiral groove (by travelling along it) on which information has been encoded in the form of undulations in the groove wall. Side-to-side and up-and-down movements of the stylus (which is mounted on one end of a rod supported and pivoted at its centre) as it fo

The loss of a DNA base causes an abasic site

Hydrolysis of the deoxyribose Cl'–base linkage results in the complete loss of a purine or pyrimidine base, resulting in what is called an abasic site, an event with obvious genetic consequences. This hydrolysis reaction is much more likely to occur at purine bases, resulting in depurination of the DNA (Table 3a<

3.4.2 Using different ways and approaches to learn

Always aim to select the way of learning that fits with what you intend to learn. If your goal is to improve your presentation skills, you need to prepare and practise presenting your work. If you need to relate theory to practise in your job, you need to spend time understanding how theory can relate to practice, perhaps by reviewing and discussing case studies. This may seem obvious but people often make wrong choices out of habit. There is a natural tendency to use ways we feel most famili

1.7 Taxation

Another function of accounting is to provide the basis on which tax is measured. The link between taxation and financial reporting is stronger in some countries than others, and is typically much more pronounced in the accounting of owner-managed business than multinational groups. However, the tax issue can be a very significant shaper of accounting measurement. The relationship between tax and accounting is, like so many things, partly the result of an accident of history.
