A film by Tobias Richter in cooperation with Klaus Peter Richter and Klaus Lindemann, this portrait documents the life and work of the legendary conductor and organist Karl Richter - featuring rare interviews, unpublished archive material and performance highlights from Richter's illustrious career.
Curt Richter’s portraits reveal insights into his sitters beyond the visible surface. His ability to connect to his subjects is apparent in their faces, and their candor makes evident the trust he gains. He approaches portraiture with the belief that a photograph can steal a bit of a subject’s soul. The intention with all his photographs, regardless of the subject matter, is to create a storyline. The narrative thread that bonds Thousand Words is the Key West Literary Seminar. There is probably no island in the world that holds the literary heritage that Key West can claim. For the last eight years, Richter has photographed anyone involved with the seminar willing to sit for a portrait, and this series documents a slice of time in a community with a long history.
This study investigated the teaching practices employed by the faculty of the Lyceum University System in teaching chemistry laboratory in order to attain the seven goals of science laboratory instruction: a) mastery of subject matter, b) scientific reasoning, c) understanding complexity and ambiguity of empirical work, d) practical skills, e) understanding the nature of science, f) interest in science and in learning science, and g) teamwork skills. It also determined the extent by which the attainment of the goals of science laboratory instruction was manifested in the students’ a) attitude and motivation, b) laboratory skills and c) achievement. Finally, a proposed model of a teaching-learning process in chemistry laboratory instruction was developed based on the identified best teaching practices.
This book is the study aimed at knowing the efficiency of the virtual laboratory in teaching science from the perspectives of teachers and students in departments of chemistry, physics, and biology (ECNU), who are exposed to the well equipped virtual laboratory in the teaching of sciences. It also aimed at knowing its impact on the educational process, and the integrative roles of both real laboratory and virtual laboratory in teaching. So as to improve the educational process and make the most use of ICT in education, and make students able to carry out scientific research in the affairs of their environment. Finally the provision of a number of trainers or technicians in science laboratory, and they should have good experiences about the virtual laboratory, its roles, the way how to be designed and its experiments.
“Cognitive dissonance” is a frequent occurrence in our daily life. However, less than 1% of the studies of cognitive dissonance have also investigated individuals’ personality traits. Individual differences might be quite important in moderating the strength of dissonance effects. Although cognitive dissonance is a common occurrence in most people’s everyday life, the magnitude of the dissonance they experience may nonetheless differ from one person to another. The purpose of the study in this book is to investigate the relationships between personality traits and cognitive dissonance in a counter-attitudinal advocacy paradigm, with a special focus on the traits of openness to experience and strength of sense of self, and to examine whether the relationships in a novel on-line survey study form were different from the relationships in the standard laboratory setting.
Laboratory tests are an individual aid to the practicing oral and maxillofacial surgeon. In conjugation with a other history and physical examination, the myriad of laboratory tests available can aid in the diagnosis of various disease and allow the precise preoperative and postoperative management of patient with systemic disease. In addition, patients without overt disease can be screened before procedures that carry potentially serious complications are begun, such as general anaesthesia. This book will help to understand and perform various laboratory investigations in a proper way and thus helping you to frame a better diagnosis.
The old days of easy-going attitudes to laboratory safety and teaching are over. In addition, there is a clarion call to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical aspects of chemistry and other sciences to make them appealing to the younger generation who are gradually loosing interest in science-related disciplines. The overall objective of this handbook is to introduce a comprehensive overview on the fundamentals of laboratory teaching and safety for laboratory workers in the chemical sciences as well as other personnel in the allied sciences. Two unique features are evident in this handbook. First, the book presents the how of laboratory teaching. It is not intended to be a cookbook that presents a set of instructions to be followed by the laboratory instructor. Rather, self-appraisal, fundamental principles, and skill development required for effective laboratory teaching are detailed. Second, the book gives a lucid introduction to laboratory management, chemical safety and prudent chemical handling. Finally, remember, to teach is to learn twice. Enjoy the nuggets for effective lab teaching and safety practices.
With a career spanning almost sixty years, Gerhard Richter is among the most prominent painters of the twentieth and twenty-first century, well-known for his monumental abstract and photo-realistic works. But beyond the many instantly recognizable paintings, relatively little is still known about how Richter works, his artistic processes and philosophy. For this book, Belgian photographer Benjamin Katz—a fifty-year veteran of the art world himself—had the opportunity to capture on film the notoriously camera-shy artist at work. Armed with a pair of compact Leicas, he photographed and hand-developed eighty extraordinary black-and-white portraits of Richter painting, sketching, and mulling over his work. A keen observer, Katz shoots his subjects candidly and without the use of flash. Because of this, his photographs reflect genuine moments in the lives of their subjects, often with an almost palpable sense of humor, melancholy, or love. In addition to Richter, Katz has photographed Joseph Beuys, Sigmar Polke, Rosemarie Trockel, Martin Kippenberger, and Georg Baselitz, among many other legends of the contemporary art world, exhibiting his photographs in some of the world’s biggest institutions. Katz’s striking photographs of Richter will be equally well-received for the insight they offer into his celebrated career.
This book represents an extended and thoroughly revised version of a collection of lecture notes plus practical experiences of the authors. The text is concise and to the point for the medical laboratory practitioners. The book has been written with a view to assist the MLT students at the bachelors’ level exam. In Pakistan, standard books are not available for MLT students who are usually burdened by texts intended for the consumption of English speaking students and not really appropriate to the facilities available locally. In addition, many of the laboratory sciences students in Pakistan are not very proficient in English when they start their training programmes. Therefore this book could contribute to fill the gaps and will serve as a platform for other young laboratory science experts to come forward and author similar books in other fields of laboratory sciences.
The current book aimed to provide a short guide for establishing a Medical Diagnostic Laboratory. The guide was concerned with the types of medical laboratories, essential medical instruments, laboratory samples and laboratory Quality control. The most important to know is the basics of constructing a medical laboratory and the hygienic disposal of infectious laboratory samples without being a source for the distribution of infections microorganisms to the environment. Also, medical laboratory can be helpful in providing the data that needed to map the distribution of different diseases all over the country; this will be available only with regular registration of samples and patients history.
The complexity of the environment of a science laboratory predisposes it to various hazards. The inevitability of accident occurrence associated with the presence of these hazards is imminent, however, preventable. Hence, the awareness and practice of laboratory safety among laboratory users are necessary to prevent accidents in the laboratory. One of the activities in the promotion of safety in the laboratory is health education. It is a method that can be done in numerous pedagogical approaches. However, studies have reported that more learners are supplementing or replacing these approaches with resources they uncover over the Internet. An available technology is online social networking. Various studies have also emphasized the online social networking sites' prominence, especially among the youth, and potential as an alternative learning resource. This book looks into the potential of integrating instructional materials in Facebook on developing learners’ awareness and practice of laboratory safety - a novel study on the use of online social networking in safety pedagogy in the science laboratory dedicated to the Net-centric and Web 2.0 generation.
The book describes practical procedures for the destruction of hazardous chemicals and biological agents in the laboratory in which they are used. The book is a continuation and expansion of “Destruction of Hazardous Chemicals in the Laboratory.” It follows the same general approach as the first and second editions but includes a number of new chapters including one on using advanced oxidation techniques as a general means of degrading chemicals. All the monographs from the second edition are incorporated in this volume and are revised and extended as necessary. A number of new monographs describing procedures for the destruction of hazardous chemicals have also been added. The destruction of many pharmaceuticals is also described in this book. This subject has become of increasing importance with recent reports of the detection of pharmaceuticals in the water supply. Finally a new addition is the chapter “General Methods for the Destruction of Hazardous Chemicals in the Laboratory.” This chapter describes recent advanced oxidation methods that should be generally applicable to all organic compounds. The methods use commonly available laboratory equipment and reagents.
Revered as a general and trusted as America's first elected leader, George Washington is considered a great many things in the contemporary imagination, but an intellectual is not one of them. In correcting this longstanding misconception, The Books in George Washington's Life offers a stimulating literary biography that traces the effects of a life spent in self-improvement.
Job strain is the harmful physical and emotional responses that can happen when there is a conflict between job demands on the employee and the amount of control an employee has over meeting these demands. Job-related depression may often be initiated by high levels of long-term job stress, failure associated with stress-related under-performance, or by life crises. Job-related depression is a clinical illness and the workers should take this seriously. This study is aimed at identifying the psychosocial characteristics of job strain and the relationship between psychosocial job factors and depression in laboratory technicians in HUSM and KKM Hospitals. Results showed that the majority of laboratory technicians in HUSM and KKM Hospitals were classified as passive. However, the proportion of high strain group was the second highest after passive group in both HUSM and KKM Hospitals. Job insecurity, physical exertion, and total psychological stressor are the significant risk factors of job strain in laboratory technicians in HUSM. However, the significant risk factors of job strain for laboratory technicians in KKM Hospitals are physical exertion and total psychological stressor.
