It involves consulting with staff, assessing and controlling risks, establishing and maintaining record systems and evaluating policies and procedures.
User-produced Hebrew Prayer Books and Shared Iconography
Some Hebrew manuscripts were produced in Christian workshops, others were made by Jewish artists themselves for their own use. Piet looks at examples of these and explores the shared iconography between Christian and Jewish faiths, such as the unicorn. Some Hebrew manuscripts were produced in Christian workshops, while others were made by Jewish artists themselves for their own use. An Ashkenazic siddur stands out as an example of a Jewish scribe-artist, influenced by the visual culture of his t
Introduction to Glycolysis
Living cells can process certain sugar molecules, rearranging their atoms and this process can supply energy to the cell to power growth and other functions. This process is called glycolysis. Glycolysis evolved billions of years ago when there was no oxygen in the earth's atmosphere and it was therefore impossible for cells to gain energy from the oxidation of sugar molecules using oxygen. Later when oxygen was produced as a byproduct of photosynthesis cells evolved to utilise oxygen to oxidise
Safe handling of sharps
Identifying and minimising sharps risks by proper handling and disposal practices, and responding to sharps injury, particularly in health care settings.
Handle food hygienically
As a food handler it is vital for you to know about and follow safe food handling practices. This is to prevent food safety hazards that may lead to food poisoning or even the spread of disease in your workplace. You will need to understand the key risks to food contamination, and the correct practices that need to be followed at each stage of food production. This learning object contains information, resources and activities to help you: identify food sa
Cleaning up and setting up - a scenario for health care workers
A scenario set in a dental surgery involving cleaning up after patients, observing and advising another worker about potential infection risks, and cleaning up a mess after someone has vomited in the toilets. The scenario includes two interactive situations and one which requires completion of an Activity Report.
Dealing with blood and other body fluids
Identifying infection risks of body fluids and body tissue. Dealing with spills and incidents involving body fluids and/or body tissue, particularly in health care settings.
Conduct risk assessment - Public Safety (Community Safety)
Conduct the first four steps in the risk assessment process: establish the context, identify risks, analyse risks, and evaluate risks. Covers competencies from the unit PUAEMR007A Conduct risk assessment from the Public Safety (Community Safety) Training Package (PUA41101).
7.342 Cancer Biology: From Basic Research to the Clinic (MIT)
This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting. In 1971, President Nixon declared the "War on Cancer," but after three decades the war is still raging. How much progress have we made toward winning the war and what are we doing to improve the fight? Unde
Open-celled aluminium foam
Although the processing route is complicated and the product expensive, there is a high degree of control over the cell structure of such foams and the final shape can be controlled to meet near-net-shape requirements.
Anatomy of a Volcano
In this interactive activity from NOVA Online, explore the main features of the Nyiragongo volcano, located in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and learn what risks it poses to the 500,000 people who live in its shadow.
9.011 The Brain and Cognitive Sciences I (MIT)

Topics: development of the nervous system and its connections, cell biology or neurons, neurotransmitters and synaptic transmission, sensory systems of the brain, the neuro-endocrine system, the motor system, higher cortical functions, behavioral and cellular analyses of learning and memory. First half of an intensive two-term survey of brain and behavioral s
6.441 Transmission of Information (MIT)
6.441 offers an introduction to the quantitative theory of information and its applications to reliable, efficient communication systems. Topics include: mathematical definition and properties of information; source coding theorem, lossless compression of data, optimal lossless coding; noisy communication channels, channel coding theorem, the source-channel separation theorem, multiple access channels, broadcast channels, Gaussian noise, and time-varying channels.
Virtual yeast cell
This rich learning object is used to introduce yeast cytology to students taking Module D24BS3 Brewery Yeast Management as part of the MSc in Brewing Science. The virtual cell permits the students to understand structure and function of yeast organelles.
FOAMCARP closed cell aluminium foam
Additions such as SiC are made to molten aluminium or aluminium alloy to modify the melt viscosity and make it suitable for foaming. Calcium carbonate is then added to the melt which is solidified to form a precursor which can be foamed in a controlled manner by a subsequent heat treatment. The resulting foam has a fine and relatively uniform cell structure.
High magnification SEM image of open cell polyurethane foam
If a gas is injected into a liquid it forms a cellular foam structure. When a thermoset prepolymer of low viscosity is foamed, the polymer can drain from the cell walls (driven by surface tension) before it sets at the cell edges, leaving an open-celled foam. The cell edges have three concave sides, and some remnants of collapsed cell walls can be seen at the cell edges.
