Radically optimistic
Kevin Roberts, CEO Worldwide of Saatchi & Saatchi, says that the world has changed dramatically in the last 12 months. It is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. Consumers, he explains, have re-framed their lives post-crisis and will now make purchase decisions based on inter-related cultural, social and environmental considerations.

The theorists imagined a revolution that would spread from Germany to the East, yet history brought a revolution that arose in Russia and then spread to the West. What can we say, today, about the theory and the practice? Was Marxism in any sense native to Easter

3.4 Environmental effects of reservoir construction

Reservoirs may totally alter the water resources of a country. Before the Aswan Dam was completed in Egypt, more than half of the 8 × 1010 m3 of water that flowed down the River Nile through Egypt each year ran into the sea. Most of the water can now be used in Egypt, mainly for irrigation, and instead of a single annual crop grown after seasonal flooding, more than one crop can be grown each year. However, advantages such as these must be considered in conjunction with

The unravelling of molecular structure is a key activity of chemists. In these three video tracks, Dr Mike Bullivant looks briefly at three of the spectroscopic techniques that are used to determine the structure of chemical compounds - infrared spectroscopy, proton (1H) and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (nmr) spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry.
