UT MD Anderson Cancer Center launches unprecedented Moon Shots Program to increase patient survival
By: mdanderson Inspired by America’s drive a generation ago to put a man on the moon, MD Anderson’s Moon Shots Program is a highly-concentrated effort to rapidly and dramatically decrease suffering and death in several major cancers, including acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS); chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); lung; melanoma; prostate and two cancers linked at the molecular level: triple-negative breast and ovarian. Focused teams are building on new techn

First-Grade Classroom in Kenya
In this video from Wide Angle, Joab is a first-grader in a school in Kenya. There are 74 children in his class and only one teacher. Students sit on mats instead of chairs with desks, not only because desks are too expensive but also so that more children can fit into the classroom. The teacher says it is hard to teach the first-grade students the alphabet and how to read and write because many have never been in a school before they entered her class. The children, who all wear school uniforms,
Episode 125: Approaches to snakebite in Papua New Guinea, and development in Sikkim
Herpetologist David Williams discusses his doctoral research into improving the plight of snakebite sufferers in Papua New Guinea, where snakes constitute a major public health problem. Also, PhD student Thomas Chandy probes community perceptions of the impact of economic development in the remote Himalayan region of Sikkim. With host Eric van
Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes Read A Loud
This animated video is a read a loud from Kevin Henkes book Chrysanthemum. Chrysanthemum the mouse loves her name, but when she goes to school, the other children giggle. "'Her name is so long,' said Jo. 'It scarcely fits on her name tag,' said Rita, pointing."Poor Chrysanthemum; even though her father says her name is "precious and priceless and fascinating and winsome," how will she persuade the other children in her class? Perhaps Mrs. Twinkle can come to the rescue! This is a good

4.1.1 A hierarchy of causes
Consider the difference between the relative safety of car and air travel in relation to the following points.
A car travels on the ground and not at 10 000 m in the air. Compare the e
Annual costs to employers from accidental injury and occupational illness are on the order of 5–10 per cent of the gross profits of UK industry. The total social cost, including the cost of benefits and National Health hospitalisation and treatment, make this a truly staggering drain on the nation's coffers!
3.2 Multiple causes
Now we will explore multiple causes using an example familiar to us all – road accidents. The deaths of about 10 people each day on the UK's roads are less dramatic than, for example, the capsize of the Herald of Free Enterprise, but one feature that links them both is the element of risk associated with everything we do – and even with inaction.
We have just seen that many factors contribute to the risks which result from the inherent hazards associated with something we do.
3.1.1 The cause
A small digression will be made here to question the use of the word ‘cause’ and to reflect on the view expressed by Kletz (1988, p. 2). He argues that the word has an air of finality about it, and is concerned that finding the cause discourages further investigation. He cites an example that the cause of a pipe failure was corrosion – which suggests that we know why the failure occurred. He draws the analogy of the cause of a fall being gravity – suggesting that nothing more can
3.1 Types of incident
Now we can progress to an examination of some incidents by studying selected reports and publications.
Returning to the word ‘accident’, we can cite another definition:
An accident is an undesired event which results in physical harm and/or property damage. It usually results from a contact with a source of energy above the threshold limit of the body or structure.
(Kuhlman, 1977, p. 5)
2 Setting priorities
Consider whether the relative economic aspects should determine the degree of priority given to different aspects of the risk scenarios in Figure 1.
1 Safety, health and environmental management – a risky business!
While views on management differ, Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) management is merely a subset of management to which the same generalities apply. Indeed, at the end of this unit we will see indications of the integrating concepts being promoted by organisations. However, for the present we can translate the key actions of management into:
Plan – anticipate problems before they occur, and plan for prevention rather than remedying pro
1 Developing reading skills
John Clarke and course team member Ross Fergusson, look at developing reading skills in the context of Social Science resources, with suggestions on how to read such materials critically and effectively. The material is primarily an audio file, 11 minutes in length and recorded in 1998.
Participants in the audio programme were:
John Clarke Professor of Social Policy at The Open University;
Ross Ferguson Social Scie
2 Next steps
Why is the way something looks important? Text, colour, images, moving images and sound all interact to produce a user friendly environment within a user interface. This unit will help you understand the effect each software component has on the user and explain how a consistent and thoughtful application of these components can have a significant impact on the ‘look’ of final product.
7.2.10 B2B exchanges
What is ‘e-commerce’? This unit will look at typical application areas including the internet, supply chain management and online auctions. It will also help you to understand the underlying technologies used to implement e-commerce applications before looking at some of the problems that can be encountered when developing distributed e-commerce systems.
