Flames of Passion (1989) - extract
Richard Kwietniowski's short film lovingly twists David Lean's stiff-upper-lipped romance 'Brief Encounter' into a rich and witty contemporary melodrama, with two devilishly handsome young men standing in for Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard. Kwietniowski's award-winning work includes the feature 'Love and Death on Long Island'. You can see the complete film and over 2000 other titles free in BFI Mediatheques around the UK - http://www.bfi.org.uk/mediatheque

Introduction

In the OpenLearn unit on Developing modelling skills (MSXR209_3), the idea of revising a model was introduced. In this unit you will be taken through the whole modelling process in detail, from creating a first simple model, through evaluating it, to the subsequent revision of the model by changing one of the assumptions. The new aspect here is the emphasis on a revised model, which comes in Section 2. The problem that will be examined is one based on heat transfer.

This unit, the four

5 Conclusion

The issue of climate change draws attention to the power of human activity to transform the planet in its entirety, and it is brought into sharp focus by the predicament of low-lying islands like Tuvalu. As we have seen in this unit, the issue of rising sea level and other potential impacts of changing global climate also point to the transformations in the physical world that occur even without human influence. Oceanic islands provide a particularly cogent reminder that the living things wit

8.3.1 Fluorine-based etching of silicon

Given the noxious chemistry needed to etch silicon with a liquid, it is perhaps surprising that a gas can do the job at all. However, both xenon fluoride (XeF2) and chlorine trifluoride (ClF3) gases have been used successfully for just this purpose. Each acts as a source of fluorine atoms, which are just barely bound together into molecules and are easily rearranged around silicon atoms with which they form strong bonds, turning them into inert SiF4 gas. These

5 Effective communication

The purpose of this assessment unit is for you to create a portfolio of your work to represent you as an effective communicator within your study or work activities. This will involve using criteria to help you select examples of your work that clearly show you can use and improve your communication skills. However, by far the most important aim is that you can use this assessment process to support your learning and improve your performance overall.

Communicating effectively involves a

4 Structure of the assessment units

This key skills assessment unit does not have specific questions with word limits and no statements indicating you include, say, an essay or a report. Instead, as you tackle the unit you need to ask yourself ‘Which pieces of work show my skills and capabilities to best advantage?’ When you have identified and selected evidence of your skills, you must then relate this evidence directly to the criteria.

This method of building a portfolio is based not on providing right or wrong answ
