2.3 A closer look at ethical issues

Science can define what is practicable, what can be done, but it cannot determine which developments it is right to pursue; this is largely an ethical judgement. One sensible approach in making an ethical assessment is to try to weigh up the benefits of a technology against its potential to do harm. Deciding whether GM technology is acceptable, in ethical terms, then involves a judgement about the plausibility and moral weight of competing sets of claims. Individuals may make widely different

How to Measure Circumference
The two-minute video is about circumference. This video explains that one way to separate circles is by their circumference, different size circles have different size circumference. Circumference is the distance around a circle. The ratio of the circumference of a diameter is pi= c/d. The video moves slowly and students should be able to follow it after the terms have been explained and practice.

4.1 Scientific approaches

Even after many years of research, the phenomenon of hibernation continues to be a mystery to scientists. Despite coming nearer to an understanding of how and why it happens, some fundamental questions remain unanswered. Is there a genetic basis underlying the evolutionary predisposition of animals to hibernate, given its occurrence in many groups of vertebrates and invertebrates? Is the problem of metabolic adaptation in cells separate from thermal regulation which occurs throughout the orga

7.1 Introduction

Until now, we have discussed DNA primarily as a double helix, but in its natural state within the cell it is found packaged as a complex mixture with many different proteins and other components. You have already seen examples of proteins with specific roles to play, such as topoisomerases and the proteins with various DNA binding domains, but in this section we will turn our attention to the proteins that serve to pack and organise the DNA into what we call chromatin.

The packaging of

1.4 Broadly typical phases of PhD research

A modern PhD can be viewed as having three key phases (very roughly, but not strictly, corresponding to the three years of a full-time degree), each of which contributes a necessary element of mastery:

  1. Orientation – mastering the literature and formulating a research problem and plan.

  2. Intensive research – gathering the evidence to support the thesis, whether empirical or theoretical.

  3. Entering t

4.2 Other members of the bear family

Other omnivorous species of bear include the Asian black bear, the North American black bear and the Andean spectacled bear. Although polar bears spend their winters hunting seals out on the Arctic sea-ice, they have to come ashore when the ice melts in spring and find other sources of food.

6.2 The growing axon: growth cones

The growth cone is a small area of active tissue at the tip of a growing axon (Figure 15). As the growth cone moves forward, it adds new material to the cell membrane and so extends the axon. (New axonal membrane is also added at other points along the axon, though to a much lesser extent.)

4.2 Social and political justice

A particularly important set of debates arises in relation to different notions of distributive justice. Do notions of distributive justice apply to the rights of individuals and the acts that they commit, or do they also apply to states of affairs, to the pattern of the results arising from those actions? In the former case, an outcome is just or unjust if it arises from just or unjust actions; whereas in the latter, the principles of justice apply to the pattern of outcomes. This latter not

6.1 Buying a book online

I've chosen this because books (together with music CDs and DVDs) are often the first things that people buy online. In this case I'm after a book by an American academic named Lawrence Lessig. I'm not sure of the exact title, but I know it's got 'culture' in it.

Step 1 Find a site that sells what you want

In this case, it's easy. I'm looking for a book, and Amazon is the best-known online book retailer. So I click on http://www.amazon.co.uk. Why not http://www.amazon.com
