Frozen stress photoelastic fringe pattern during fibre pushout
The experiment indicates a more uniform of shear stress than that predicted by the shear lag model, suggesting that interfacial shear de-bonding strength values obtained from de-bonding loads on the basis of that model may be overestimates. (See 'The use of single fibre pushout testing to explore interfacial mechanisms in SiC monofilament-reinforced Ti-I. A photoelastic study of the test', Watson and Clyne, Acta metall. mater. Vol 40, No 1, pp 131-139, 1992 for more details.)
Twist-escaped loops in the liquid crystalline polymer MBBA
Once a weak shear flow is applied on the nematic liquid, there is a sudden and strong increase in the defect density. At a certain shear rate, the equilibrium density is reached after a while through the creation and annihilation of defects. This in-situ observation enables the study of a wide range of dynamic disclination behaviours during shear, such as disclination-joining, loop-contracting, loop-stretching and loop-breaking. The loops in this image result from type 1 disclinations 'escaping'

King Lear to In the loop : fiction and British politics
On 11 December 2009, Nottingham University's Centre for British Politics held a conference at the British Academy that drew together politicians, writers and academics to explore the interaction of British politics and fiction. In addition to the conference several video interviews were conducted with some of the speakers on the day. In this interview taken at the Fiction and British Politics Conference in London, former MP and writer Joe Ashton reveals how much truth there is in his writing
Antiretroviral treatment programmes in Nepal: Problems and barriers.
The main aim of this study is to identify barriers and obstacles to providing and expanding ARV programmes in Nepal. Materials and methods: A qualitative approach consisting of in-depth interviews with three groups of stakeholders: policy makers, ARV service providers and ARV recipients were carried out. The transcripts were analysed using a thematic approach. Results: The estimated number of people in need was high compared with people currently receiving ARV in Nepal. With regards to the prope
