2.2 The organisation: loyalty cards

Many supermarkets and other firms (such as petrol companies and airlines) use loyalty cards: cards that offer a customer some form of incentive, such as a future discount or gift, to continue buying from that firm. For example, the British supermarket chain Tesco issues such cards. The holder of a loyalty card is regularly sent vouchers which give the holder discounts from their shopping bills and also vouchers which enable them to gain a discount on items that the supermarket wishes to promo

1.1.1 Noms de rues

As you noticed on the town plan, street names in France and other French-speaking countries often commemorate famous people and historical events. In most French towns, you will find, for instance, rue/avenue/place/boulevard du Général de Gaulle or de la République or du 14 juillet (anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, which started the French Revolution).

1.1 The biological effects of ethanol

This section investigates some of the harmful effects that a high level of blood-ethanol can have on the body: both short-term problems such as ‘hangover’, and long-term health problems that are associated with regular heavy drinking. Whilst this section is primarily about the biological effects that ethanol has on various organs of the body, it is important to remember that the socioeconomic effects of heavy drinking are also very serious (Paton, 2005).

4.1 The piezoelectric effect

The phenomenon of piezoelectricity was first predicted and demonstrated in the late nineteenth century using naturally occurring materials. It has a vast number of applications, ranging from spark ignitors to inkjet printers. It is also utilised in timing circuits, where an oscillating electric field is used to make a quartz crystal resonate at its natural frequency. In MEMS, the effect is used to generate small-scale movements in a range of devices known as micro-actuators.

Othello and apartheid
Can a play written in the seventeenth century protest against contemporary issues? Is it possible to use a Shakespearian tragedy draw attention to political injustice? Apartheid was a system of enforced legal racial segregation in South Africa that was imposed on the country's majority non white inhabitants by the minority white population. In 1988 actress and director Janet Suzman took the decision to defy the racist apartheid regime by staging Othello in Johannesburg with a mixed cast of both

2 Community

As you've just seen, ‘community’, an ever present word, evokes some contrasting meanings. It has been described as a ‘keyword’, that is, a word which has its own particular history but which also plays a significant role in putting across different meanings. Identifying a keyword is to go further than just giving a dictionary definition because:

Keywords have been more than ways of seeing: they have been influe

12.333 Atmospheric and Ocean Circulations (MIT)
In this course, we will look at many important aspects of the circulation of the atmosphere and ocean, from length scales of meters to thousands of km and time scales ranging from seconds to years. We will assume familiarity with concepts covered in course 12.003 (Physics of the Fluid Earth). In the early stages of the present course, we will make somewhat greater use of math than did 12.003, but the math we will use is no more than that encountered in elementary electromagnetic field theor
