2.4.2 Holism and ideas about the body

Reductionist medical approaches have been criticised for providing a fixed, mechanistic view of the body, which fails to capture the patient's experience. The power associated with biomedical diagnoses and expertise means that patients’ explanations for their illnesses are often overlooked or dismissed. Does holism, which seeks to treat the mind, body and spirit, fare any better in giving patients a sense of control or ownership of what their illness means? This question is often reframed i

7.5 Summary of Section 7

  1. The equilibrium constant of a reaction is fixed at any particular temperature. It depends only on the natures of the initial reactants and the final products; what happens as reactants change into products has no effect on the equilibrium constant or position of equilibrium.

  2. The rate of a chemical reaction is affected both by the temperature and by the pathway (reaction mechanism) through which reactants change into products. This pathway c

In the Night Kitchen
Mickey is in bed when he hears noises.  He yells for the noises to stop, tumbles out of bed, loses his clothes and falls right into the night kitchen where the three bakers bake cakes for the morning.  The bakers mistake Mickey for milk and mix him with the other cake ingredients.  He helps them get the milk to bake the cakes and thereafter we all have cakes in the morning.

6.5 Training at high altitude

Many of the world's best endurance athletes train at high altitudes – a long way above sea level – to improve their performance. At high altitudes there is less oxygen in the air and it's believed that the body has to work harder to extract what little oxygen remains. When the athlete returns to lower altitudes, their body retains the ability to use oxygen more efficiently and their performance will have improved.

4.3.2 Operational excellence

Companies that pursue this [value discipline] are not primarily product or service innovators, nor do they cultivate a deep one-to-one relationship with their customers. Instead, operationally excellent companies provide middle-of-the-market products at the best price with the least inconvenience. Their proposition to customers is simple: low price and hassle-free service.

2.1 Reading techniques: scanning

There are three main techniques that you can use in order to read in such a way as to achieve your purpose: scanning, skimming, and focused reading. Let's take each in turn.

The technique of scanning is a useful one to use if you want to get an overview of the text you are reading as a whole – its shape, the focus of each section, the topics or key issues that are dealt with, and so on. In order to scan a piece of text you might look for sub-headings or identify key words and p

3.6 The signed area under a constant velocity-time graph

There is a simple feature of uniform velocity-time graphs that will be particularly useful to know about when we come to consider non-uniform motion in the next section. It concerns the relationship between the velocity-time graph and the change in position over a given time interval. Consider the following problem. A vehicle travels at a velocity vx = 12 m s−1 for 4 s. By how much does its position change over that interval?

3.1 Word formulas

A formula is a rule or a generalisation. Word formulas – formulas that use English words rather than mathematical symbols – are so much a part of life that people often use them without realising that they are doing so. Here are some examples.

  • The cost of a purchase of oranges is the price per orange times the number of oranges.

  • The total cost of petrol is the price of petrol per litre times the number of litres.
