Jeff Gold Inaugural Lecture - The Leader's Conundrum or 'You cannot lift yourself up by your own shi
The aim of the lecture will be to do demonstrate the need to challenge continuing traditional images of leaders, often depicted at the apex of things, on top of a hill or at the centre of a complex web of activity. I will argue that those nominated as leaders MUST become aware of what I will call the leader's conundrum and complement their inspiration with 99 x perspiration. To appreciate this call, attendees to the lecture as respectfully asked to do the following just before the lecture: a.

1.3 How can we explain the distribution of stars on the H–R diagram?

Here is a possible explanation for the concentration of stars into certain regions on the H–R diagram. It is based on the reasonable assumptions that:

  • Any particular star is luminous for only a finite time;

  • There are distinct stages between the star's cradle and grave, each stage being characterized by some range of temperature and luminosity; the star thus moves around the H–R diagram as it evolves;

  • The stars we

3.4 The organ of Corti and hair cells

We have established that the vibration patterns of the basilar membrane carry information about frequency, amplitude and time. The next step is to examine how this information is converted or coded into neural signals in the auditory nervous system. To do so, we must look at the organ of Corti in some detail since it is here that the auditory receptor cells that convert mechanical energy into a change in membrane polarisation are located.

2 Background to the controversy

In February 1998, Andrew Wakefield and twelve co-authors published a study in The Lancet – a respected peer-reviewed medical journal. The paper was published with the highly technical, but seemingly innocuous, title: ‘Ileal-lymphoid-nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorder in children’. It was based on a study of twelve children who had been referred to Wakefield's clinic with gastrointestinal disease. Most of the children had a regressive f
