18.2 Using e-commerce

Many people now have internet connections and this offers many benefits to both businesses and their customers.

From a customer's point of view, e-commerce has a number of advantages. Shopping can be done from home; you can probably find what you need without trudging from one shop to another and waiting in queues. You can also purchase goods 24 hours a day, every day.

From the point of view of a business, e-commerce also offers a number of advantages. There is a potentially wide

6 Promoting science promotion: the move from deficit to dialogue

This course has tried to distinguish between institutional science outreach events and independent alternatives by recognising some of their characteristics and evaluating the extent to which they fulfil (and even create) a political mandate for PEST (Public Engagement in Science and Technology). Although institutional events sometimes involve the deficit style of ‘top-down’ transmission of facts, the examples provided in this course suggest that they are increasingly imaginative and unus

2.5 Public engagement

From the examples outlined in sections 2.2 to 2.4, which are just a fraction of what is available, you could conclude that the UK public are, in general, offered a wide range of science promotion events. These events provide valuable insights into many aspects of science for laypeople, perhaps especially the ‘high tech’ science that they might otherwise never experience. They also provide a useful opportunity for scientists to engage with the public – should that be wanted. And where th

Conclusion

We have seen how a solution falls into one of three categories (innovation by context, innovation by development, and routine solution) according to the need that drives it. Furthermore, the need is shown to be the point of reference that should be kept in sight throughout the process of finding solutions. Unless the need is accurately stated, the ideal solution cannot be obtained – a case of 'garbage in, garbage out'.

We have examined the process of finding a solution step by step, u

1.6 Vitamin B

Vitamin B, often called the vitamin B complex, consists of a whole range of different compounds, some of which have similar functions and work together. However, unlike the families of compounds forming vitamins E and K, the B vitamins are sufficiently different from one another to be given individual names or numbers, and to be listed separately on many food labels. Except for vitamin B12, the body can only store limited amounts of B vitamins and because they are all water-soluble

2.3 Activity 1: Discussion

Responding to the way in which the content and style of photographs are so often limited by the production and distribution processes of the mass media, Owen Logan uses digital technology to produce a new way of seeing the oil industry. As you can see, many of his pictures are made by digitally splicing separate photographs together. The effects of these montages are in part about the relationship between what is put together. For example, to me Logan's use of a photograph of an oil platform

Rufous Hummingbird Feeding Young at Nest
This short video gives excellent real life footage of a Rufous Hummingbird feeding its young on its nest. Described as one of the feistiest hummingbirds in North America, the rufous hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) is well-known for its aggressive defence of flowers and feeders, even against species many times its own size. It is a relatively small and compact species, with short wings, a tail that tapers to a point, and a slender, straight, black bill. This is a great resource to help build back
