2.8 Iodine (I)

Iodide ions (I) derived, like all mineral elements, from the breakdown of rocks, is present in some soils, but much of it has been dissolved out by water over millions of years and washed down into the sea. It is concentrated by some marine organisms, and so can occur at quite high concentrations in edible seaweed, and in fish and other seafood. Thus people living near coasts often have sufficient iodine in their diet, whereas those living in mountainous areas, such as the Himal

2.7 Fluorine (F)

Fluoride ions (F) are rare in foods, though some are found in tea and in seafood. However, fluoride does occur naturally in some water supplies, derived from the rocks through which the water flows. Its only role in the body appears to be to help to protect teeth from decay.

The stages of tooth decay are as follows:

  • bacteria live in saliva on teeth (form plaque)

  • produce lactic acid → dissolves calcium salts in tooth

Introduction à la recherche opérationnelle et à l'algorithmique de l'optimisation
Faire de la recherche opérationnelle consiste en pratique à modéliser mathématiquement un problème donné puis à résoudre le problème modélisé. La première étape demande du savoir-faire et de l'expérience (certains parlent d'"art"). Pour la seconde, on dispose d'algorithmes rigoureux. La discipline s'est développée avec l'informatique : modéliser mathématiquement des problèmes complexes ne servirait à rien si on ne disposait pas d'ordinateurs pour mener les calculs. Ce cours a

There is a wide range of material available on welfare to work. Peck (2001) is undoubtedly the definitive study in terms of policy development in the UK and the USA.

7.4 Conclusion

Despite their very considerable differences, and the very different kinds of evidence they draw upon, it is clear from these brief exchanges between theoretical frameworks that ‘the personal’ and social policies meet and remake one another in multiple and complex ways. Making welfare directly conditional upon work represents an unusually focused response to particular perceptions of personal lives, and the material circumstances and social conducts associated with them.
