7.3 Disposal requirements
Health, safety and risk assessment are of paramount importance both in the laboratory and the field. This unit will help make you more aware of the hazards and risks involved in laboratory and field-based research work, as well as giving you an overview of the legal requirements attached to this work. The unit discusses issues involved in the handling chemical and biological agents, basic safety procedures and common field-work hazards.
Medicines by Design
Medicines By Design aims to explain how scientists unravel the many different ways medicines work in the body and how this information guides the hunt for drugs of the future. Pharmacology is a broad discipline encompassing every aspect of the study of drugs, including their discovery and development and the testing of their action in the body. Much of the most promising pharmacological research going on at universities across the country is sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical
Monitor and review effectiveness of treatment of risk
In this task we'll monitor and review the effectiveness of the risk controls we have implemented. It includes a learning pack which describes the need to constantly review any risk management program, to ensure that the chosen solution is working and that there are no new risks arising. You will also find out about the importance of using the results of current risk management techniques to constantly improve the overall risk management culture of the organisation.
Latin America and the Caribbean: Peace Corps
provides lessons around stories, letters, poems, and folk tales from experiences of Peace Corps volunteers. Topics include the geography and cultures of the Dominican Republic, hurricanes, hero worship, conducting interviews, Paraguay, the risks of a one-crop economy (coffee), how best to use one's time in different cultures, why service to others matters, and the common good.
Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The segment provides examples of questions used to probe the student's ideas about particles, particularly, that substances such as air are made up of invisible tiny particles called atoms that are far too small to be seen through a regular microscope. When asked if he could draw air, the student responds that air cannot be drawn because it is just a bunch of invisible particles called atoms, but when probed furt
2.4 Critical magnetic field
The fascinating phenomenon of superconductivity and its potential applications have attracted the attention of scientists, engineers and businessmen. Intense research has taken place to discover new superconductors, to understand the physics that underlies the properties of superconductors, and to develop new applications for these materials. In this unit you will read about the history of superconductors, taking a brief look at their properties. You will also learn about modelling the propertie
SAGP Guide to Clinical Medical Practice
Manual originating from personal notes made over many years of semi-rural private and hospital practice in South Africa. A useful resource based on many years of semi-rural private and hospital practice in South Africa involving major trauma, surgery and obstetrics, in addition to the common problems of general practice. I have always felt it very useful to be able to confirm facts and figures at the bedside if needed and this has been the motivation that has taken me over 40 years. This meant
The News: HeartMate II
In this commercial, we open on a doctor reading a thank-you letter from a patient. Dr. Jennifer Peura tells us how in medical school, she dreamed of finding all the answers for her patients. She explains how heart patients for years were tethered to a giant device, until MUSC acquired a device the size of a cell phone to replace their failing hearts. She is summoned to a patient room, where we see that her heart patient is now a proud uncle, celebrating the birth of his niece.

New Veterinary Med Building will Help Grow Collaboration, Research
PULLMAN, Wash. -- Work is underway on the new Veterinary Medical Research Building at Washington State University. A groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, Oct. 8, brought together faculty, alumni and other officials from WSU to mark the occasion. The 77,250 square foot building will allow researchers to work in new state-of-the-art labs and quarantine space for research. Steve Simasko, chair of the Department of Veterinary Comparative Anatomy and Physiology, said he sees increased opportunities f
The "Predator" Infiltrates French Ad Building At WSU!
10/29/2010 The Predator Infiltrates French Ad Building At Washington State University! Media Contact: Matt Haugen, WSU News Service, 509-335-0487, firstname.lastname@example.org PULLMAN, Wash.— No one was safe during the noon hour Friday at WSU, as "the Predator"—from the Hollywood movies of the same name— descended on the French Administration Building. Terror and fear was struck into the souls of the defenseless humans who tried to fight their way from the brick and mortar building. Or maybe peop

The Declaration of Independence
This is the second part of "A Powerful Performance." Here, the
Declaration is read by many popular actors, including Mel Gibson,
Michael Douglas, Whoopi Goldberg, Winona Ryder, and others. To hear it
read with such zeal is very inspiring. Think of this document whenever
you think of the role of government.
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
